Out of the Blue

I commented recently that I thought the weatherman had gotten hold of some alien technology since he has been more accurate over the past few years, but he crossed us up today. We put off taking the Smurfs because of a rain forecast, but while it's overcast, no rain has come of all this.

jeebus, 42. wonder if it was genetic/hereditary or the insane killer lifestyle you can get trapped in here.

Nah, more due to the fact of a sedintary lifestlye. I met him once several years ago. Nice guy, can't say I "knew" him, but nice guy.

The way North America is going with obesity due to sedintary lifestyles you can damn well bet that the average life expectancy is going down. Rockstars may party hard, but they work hard too. You can't party like a rockstar and not work as hard as one and expect to live to a ripe old age.

Shit man, there's no guarentees anyway you slice it. I've always been a firm believer in the 'when your number's up it's up' school, but if you insist on dancing on the minefield your number is going to come up a lot sooner than later.

Personally, if I can hit 60'ish, I'm cool with that. I most definitely do not want to get into that old folk, droolin', wearing diapers and having to be fed stage. Thanks but I'd perfer to check out earlier with some dignity and my faculties in-tact. Everybody's gotta' die some time.

I bet Blue covered that because the launch rocket was a Terrier-Orion ;-)

A one million UK Pounds engine flying for 6 seconds at Mach 8 then into the ground.
It's an uphill job explaining to fellow Aussies why that's a great achievement!

me, all i want is a shack on some Walden Pond somewhere, with a big fireplace and a big dog.

No you don't. Do you know how freaking cold it gets in MA? Ugh, this past year was another cold winter. And the year before was a doozy.

If you do that, you'll need a huge fireplace, and a big supply of firewood.

on the flip side of overpriced housing -
6 years ago mom's house in small town central wisconsin, excellent condition 2-story 2-bedroom 1-bath half-finished basement, (on 1/4 acre?), with detached 2 car garage, built in 1946, sold for $59K.

I was beginning to worry about you blue. All this "near crash" talk I had the idea maybe......nevermind, I don't even want to entertain the idea.

Seems a lot of computer geeks are dying young. Wonder if its due to the radiation emitted from these monitors?

National median single family home - $209,000
9-county SF bay area median price - $556,000
Marin County had the highest median at $850,000
Solano County had the "lowest" at $389,000.

And the majority of the people in the US aren't able to afford the "median single family home".
I am not going to get into a debate about it, but we actually bought a house that is WELL under what we qualified for. Whoever thinks they can live with a mortgage payment at 40-50% of their income - deserves what they get. Insanity. We kept it around 25% so we don't have to change our lifestyle.
