  •  I went with the crowd on today's poll (6+ / 0-)

    Even though I never really heard directly what it was Carson said (I'm sure it was insulting though). The choices were tough, as they often are in your polls, Bill. I could have voted for almost any of them.

    JEERS to flat tires. My second in two days. At least today I checked the bike tires BEFORE I was ready to head for work. I'm sure it makes no difference at all but psychologically I'd rather be fixing the flat at some time other than when I'd want to be heading out the door. Took care of it before I showered in fact. And I may have found the cause...a little bit of glass in the tire. I'm just keeping the folks who make tubes for bike tires happy; it's my contribution to the economy.

    CHEERS to milestones and countdowns. Today officially marks 36 1/2 years of federal service for me and eight months until my retirement (if things go as planned). Of those 36 1/2 years all but the first six months, which consisted of two summers as a mail carrier when I was in college have been spent with the same agency and essentially the same job title. My 36th anniversary at HUD was last week.

    CHEERS to Trapper feeling better. His stomach was driving him crazy all of last week; he lost a day or two of work over it and was miserable right through Saturday. No idea what caused it.

    CHEERS to Uruguay which stands to become the next nation to implement marriage equality, probably by the end of spring (or fall, for them).
