Feb. 4th

This is the day back in 1965 that my father died. He had his heart attack while bowling , 3rd ball thrown I think. That was 45 years ago. Kate was about minus one month at the time.

The stock market tanked today. About time for a correction. But it was a surprise. I didn’t find out until I got home around 2pm. Went out snow shoeing anyway. Not much I can do about market, and I’m not ready to sell yet. I checked the corner of Kate’s barn where I thought the grey fox might have climbed, but couldn’t see claw marks.

I had my fasting lipid panel blood tests this morning. Fasted from last evening except for black coffee. All done by 8:30am. Had nice breakfast at cafeteria in the Stephens Memorial Hospital. Then I worked at church office. Got a lot done, various things. Then went back to that cafeteria. Had good chat with some people.

Dropped off copy of Board minutes at bank for Jessica LeConte. She was out so I didn’t get the forms. Then left Norway and stopped at Hannaford in Bridgton. Surprised Cynthia with scallops and thin sliced chicken plus more salad materials.

Watched Jon Stewart and part of Stephen Colbert tonight. Both good. Had watched Nightly Business Report first. Oh, btw, I got results back from lipid tests and my cholesterals are great! High on the good, low on the bad. And my INR is between 2 and 3 so I don’t need another “pro-time” test for a month.

Over and out.

let the American auto industry choke on its mistakes and bad management. Hey, isn’t this what the polls say too? Michael’s right in tune with the American people. Right?

And it looks like the Richard Shelby’s and the Mitch McConnell’s of the U.S. Senate are letting Michael and the American people get their wish. Who cares if this leads to the mother of all depressions and stock market crashes, huh?

As long as we punish those greedy CEO’s, that’s the main thing, huh?

Of course, Michael expects that the workers will be simply transferred to building cars that are not primarily dependent on oil and, more importantly [building] trains, buses, subways and light rail (a corresponding public works project across the country will build the rail lines and tracks). This will not only save jobs, but create millions of new ones.

Hey, great pie in the sky dream, Michael! Wonderful fantasy!

By the time the new administration gets around to proposing a plan anywhere near like yours, Michael, assuming it ever would or could, given the realities of politics in America, the country may have already suffered total economic collapse.

Hey, maybe this will bring the return of the caveman?! Perhaps we’ll find out whether in fact we are related to those knuckle dragging Neanderthals after all! :lol: :mrgreen:
