Saturday Posts . . .

Today, just for a bit of fun, I want to share something absolutely funny and wonderful with everyone.

But – you’ll have to do just a little bit of work for it.

Open up your web browser’s search engine, and look for “O’Reilly Auto Parts”. When you get the results, go to the website, and you’ll see (probably in the top left corner) another search tool for their website. Put this into the search tool – 121G – and hit the “enter” key.

Enjoy!

(Major kudos to my wonderful wife for sharing that with me)

Shutting down . . .

Well, having accomplished what I set out to do with this blog, I think it is time to shut it down.

The reason I’m doing this now it simple:  I had 90 days to renew my domain registration when they informed me that WordPress has decided to force a 2-stage authentication process that requires a form of verification that I literally can’t provide – a cell phone number.  Since I do not have a cell phone, and wouldn’t tie it to my blog even if I did, it is time to quit WordPress.  Besides, I’ve done what I set out to do with  this blog, by laying personal claim to ideas that were hugely influential in the outcome of the 2016 election for the USA.  Everything else was gravy.

So, I’m transferring all of my files and blog posts to my original blog at:  http://mr-spock.livejournal.com/ and asking that if you want to continue to follow my journey of self discovery, you’ll bookmark that page or subscribe to it.  I’ve been blogging on that page since 2004.

Thank you, one and all, for making this page feel like a resounding success.

Be Careful . . .

My wife grew up in Missouri, and still has many relatives in the state. Earlier this week, we had a high temp here of 70F degrees, and one of my wife’s cousins that is still in Missouri posted the following on her Facebook page:

Sixty degrees in January is an absolute guarantee of an approaching apocalyptic winter storm.

Here on Thursday, just two days later, we had a high temp predicted of 39F degrees, an overnight low of 24F, and a 50% chance of precipitation. Followed on Friday the high temp was supposed to be about 35F with 90% chance of precipitation, and Friday night the prediction was 20F with an 80% chance of precipitation.

All of those percentages were accurate at 1100 hrs (11:00 am) CST on Thursday – as reported by Weather.com. As I’m posting it, we’re now at Saturday morning, and it’s pretty much all come to pass, with the freezing rain/ice expected to continue through Sunday. Monday it’s supposed to climb back up to around 60F degrees – and drop to near freezing again Monday night after raining all day.

Guess who’s getting well acquainted with Jose’ right now?
