I hiked Mt. Israel
today. Very nice. I was alone until I made it back to the parking area. Great views of the Sandwich Range. As a unique happenstance, the summit of that small mountain is exactly the same elevation of the holiest city in the world--a place I most want to visit outside the States--Jerusalem. Two thousand six hundred and thirty-three. With my two dogs: Ruby, the dumb blonde (golden retriever) and loyal Beau, the chocolate lab. I should give you pictures.
I thought how Obama sucks.
I thought how lucky it is I have my health. It has given me wealth, working at UPS, which requires a tough physical effort every day.
I hope the Saints win tomorrow, but I wouldn't bet money on it.
I think our greatest threat is the entitlement crunch happening before our eyes.
I drink too much alcohol. If I don't watch it... It's not as though I need help. At least not yet.
I'm listening to the opera. I love the opera. I want to take my daughter to it. No one else in my family likes it. It's really a miracle I do. When I was in junior high in the Lansing, Michigan, area, all the schools were carted off to listen to Don Giovanni by Mozart in some big playhouse where Deep Purple played a little later. I developed a migraine headache. So for years, decades really, I associated the opera with a horrible pain in my head.
But gradually I guess that's dissipated. I heard of something like this happening before. For example, my favorite talk show host threw up after eating cantaloupe. And drinking way too much. But eventually David Brudnoy was able to eat cantaloupe once again. So it happens.
Speaking of talk show hosts, the one who stands head and shoulders above everyone else talent-wise is clearly Michael Savage. He doesn't sound crazy anymore like he use to when I first got interested in 1999. Here he is being very effective about the issue which liberals ignore. It's an outrage we allow so many unborn babies to be aborted. It's a much bigger problem than racism, poverty, or hunger in the United States.
