Been a crazy week as usual, which is why things are sparse here lately. The weekend was working on the house for the most part. Sunday was the usual, Monday was work and then into Kalkaska for a new battery for Nestina's car. It was 20 degrees below zero Sunday morning and froze her old battery solid. Another hundred bucks. Tuesday was work and a deacons meeting.

Today was actually warm. The temperatures were just above freezing for the first time in a long time. It didn't last. When I left work, it was 28 degrees. An hour later, it was 8 degrees. Two hours after that, it was -8 degrees and still falling. This has to be the strangest winter in a long time. I haven't bothered to plow snow in over a week. We get a little bit from time to time, but the total snow on the ground only a couple inches or less. Next summer, the water table will not be looking good; our total snow pack is less than two feet.

Found while browsing around:

The Free Women's Breasts movement is back again. The problem is that the women that want to do this really need to keep their boobs in their shirt. Some things just shouldn't be seen...

This is something new at Northern Michigan College here in Traverse City. It will be interesting to see where it goes. The quality is uneven, which should be no surprise, but I will be interested to see if the average quality of the segments increases over time, or decreases.

Jerry Pournelle on education. What he is talking about is important, which of course means we will do nothing with it.

And it is way past bed time.
