Thank you. A belated Merry Christmas to all… and a Happy and Healthy New Year 2018!
Oh yeah, some of you all know I casually play in a fantasy football league. Which was sad this year because I basically quit watching the NFL since they politicized the game.
It was a simple relief from work. Anyhoo, this was the 10th year I have participated in the league.
Long story short, I won ! It was a Christmas miracle. I have never been very good, did very little research on players, and I won. It is completely random I think.
Thought I would share with you guys, cause I was shocked,
OK, this seems like the right post to use to jump into the pool. I’m brother that Fred has occasionally mentioned. More history will surely follow, but that’s not my purpose today.
First, and most importantly, belated congratulations to Fred and the Countess on their nuptials in March. Good things come to those who wait. Best wishes for a long and joyful life together.
Second, and more in line with this blog’s eclectic character, watch the happenings in Richmond, Virginia today. The balance of power in the Virginia House of Delegates will be decided by a random draw. After our November election the 16 vote Republican advantage has been reduced to 50-49 with a tie vote in a nearby district. Sometime today, two 35 mm Kodak film containers each will be filled with a slip of paper containing a candidate’s name and placed in a bowl. Have not read who will actually do the drawing, but this is high drama for the Old Dominion.
So first we need to know – pro-spork or anti-spork?
Assuming that a spork refers to the plastic eating utensil you get a KFC, I must regretfully report that KFC food is not worthy of any utensil. If the food is worth eating, I would celebrate the efficiency of the spork and side with the pro-spork camp.
Since I was reminded recently that I worked at KFC during my senior year, I share your opinion about KFC. The experience cured me of liking fried chicken.
Part of the reason was the Colonel insisted that the chicken be cooked in a pressure cooker. When he sold out and retired, his method was deemed to be too labor intensive, and the product turned to crap. In his final years, Colonel Sanders repudiated KFC publicly.
You might see a random spork picture at the top. It was taken in Charlotte at a Church’s chicken, so it isn’t just a KFC thing.
Live long and prosper! 😉
Nice one, CC 🙂
CNN is reporting that election officials are delaying the lottery in order to accommodate a legal challenge by the Democrat – the ballot that was approved to allow the tie, even though the challenge was submitted too late.
Yes, that’s true. Originally the Democratic candidate lost by 10 votes and asked for a recount (Virginia law only allows 1 recount per candidate.). Recount gave her a 1 vote victory. The next day one of the people involved in the recount came forward with concerns about a ballot. He said he was new to the recount process and when he expressed concerns he was overruled. So a 3-judge panel was asked to weigh in on the newly contested ballot and they awarded it to the Republican candidate = tie vote and drawing to determine winner. Democrat cries “foul” in court today and demands the vote back. Drawing is canceled until another judicial proceeding can take place. The Virginia version of Bush vs Gore.
The Republican won the deciding process, and the legal challenge moves on to a different race where apparently voters voted in the wrong Virginia House district
How many legal jobs would be lost if we had voter ID?
Jobs cannot be legal unless a government first makes them illegal.
Most of these attorney (legal) jobs are at tax payer expense. The lawyers on both sides are often from different branches of government and the trial takes places in a building owned by the government and staffed with more legal people (judges and support staff) that are on the government’s payroll.
Cool, I didn’t know Fred had a brother. I guess I should have figured that since he mentioned nieces and nephews’.
The Eddie Bauer store in Winston-Salem were currently sold out of sporks, today.
Have a good one,
Yep, I’m the older brother. As to nephews and nieces, it’s more likely he was talking about our sister’s children as they used to live in Charlotte.
