First Time and a little bit about forecast

Using blogger+ app, I am writing my first post from my new iPad 2.

So lets talk about the weather...

What kinda of hyped up news event will happen this week ? It seems the network and local news stations are really loving all the possibilities for catastrophe we had last week here on the East coast. Certainly there were some unfortunate deaths associated with the Hurricane, but first the earthquake and then the hurricane supplied the news teams plenty of extra time sell advertisement slots and fight for viewers in the effort to really overwhelm the public with dire warnings. oh and to make some serious cash with all those ads.

It was almost comical to watch one weatherman, or should I say, meteorologist, almost look sad to announce that the hurricane had been downgraded to a tropical storm just before arriving in NYC and hours before it would strike this region.

When he realized it was NYC, he said something to the affect that ,they, New Yorkers wouldn't be able to say that they had suffered a Hurricane. It was a little of the rivalry between New York and Boston manifesting itself in Weather Central, sure we were probably never going to see the storm get here as a Hurricaine, but Ha Ha, NYC didn't get one either.

The fact is, it was already a CAT 1 hurricane. And weakening. Certainly a serious storm but nothing to warrant the attention it got.

Then there is this quote from Michelle Bachman...

" I don't know how much God has to do to get the attention of the politicians. We've had an earthquake; we've had a hurricane. She said, 'Are you going to start listening to me here?' Listen to the American people because the American people are roaring right now. They know government is on a morbid obesity diet and we've got to rein in the spending."

This person is a potential Presidential Candidate? Glen Beck spun God into the picture too, jumping on the Mormon tradition of hoarding for the potential doomsday that waits for all of us liberals out there.

Those who don't drink the Glen Beck Cool-Aid will all meet an untimely end because we don't hoard. Even if we did, we are a bunch of stupid liberals who would just give everything away.

If the Michele Bachmans, the Becks, or the Palins ever truly capture enough of the hearts and minds of this country with their crazy rhetoric, then our world will be reduced to a small population of God fearing anti evolutionists who love money, guns and oil. They despise what many call " Women's Rights" while endorsing corporal punishment and the death penalty. Scoff at what scientists refer to as Climate Change and continually and mistakenly call it Global Warming, blaming Al Gore and the rest of the democrats and liberals and those pesky immigrants

Sure the deficit can' t be blamed for GE paying only about 3% in income tax. hey, they make a lot of money and 3% is a lot of money.

Wish I could get away with paying only 3% in taxes.

Well, let's see if this will post...

Painted & signed by Bob Whitesitt 1995, this unique oil painting is a symphony of motion and color. With a tambourine in one hand and finger cymbals on the other, her skirt, beads and ankle bells are captured in motion as they swirl all around this lovely, sensual dancer. Wonderful details include coins and a rose laying upon the rough floor boards at her feet, while red ribbons and bells seem to encompass her.

Presently on a rolled canvas with eyelets across the top and bottom, this stunning work could be mounted for hanging, perfect for a tavern, dance studio, or any private collector with the proper wall space.

Good condition with subtle wear marks on right side as shown in the photos."
