Sunday is supposedly a day of rest. Yesterday was.
It may have had to do a bit with the weather. It sprinkled off and on all day. Gray. Made it sort of an extra lazy day.
I spent the morning in bed watching Meet the Press and the other talk shows.
Then I was off to Don’s Place. A Sunday place. Not yesterday. There were all of about 20 people. No football and no free eats make for no business. The weather had something to do with it also.
So I headed over to the Coffee House on Duval. Glad I did. I had the best time. I read the New York Times, cover to cover. First time I have done that in such detail in a while. Took about 3 hours.
There was an interesting article on the front page of the first section. Left hand column. A major article.
It basically set forth that China was the world leader the past 2 years in the manufacture of items for solar power, wind power and nuclear reactors. Items of renewable energy and otherwise. That the United States really has yet to begin.
The article contained an observation that sticks with me. The United States has depended on the Middle East for years for its power supply, to wit: oil. That if the United States did not get into the manufacture of renewable energy quickly and in big time, our energy dependency in the future would move to the Far East. China!
And we would have replaced one less than friendly peoples for another in satisfying our energy needs.
All very interesting. Thought provoking. Part of Obama’s State of the Union speech.
Talk is one thing. Action another. Obama has to move us in the direction of manufacture and use of renewable energy dramatically. Now, not tomorrow. And everyone, Democrat and Republican alike, should support him in this endeavor. This is not a No issue.
Lisa’s for dinner!
Turkey and all the goodies that go with it.
I cheated on my diet. The food looked too good! Hot rolls were my downfall. Buttered and dunked in gravy. I have been on a low carb diet. I made up for it yesterday.
Corey’s birthday is tuesday. He will be 47. We celebrated it at dinner last night. We will be celebrating it again tuesday at dinner.
Lisa asked Corey what kind of a cake he wanted. He said strawberry. None of us know how he came up with that flavor.
She asked Robert and Ally what they wanted for frosting. Chocolate with sprinkles.
So birthday cake ended up being strawberyy with chocolate frosting covered with sprinkles. Delicious!
Remember Mike and Tina from Hartford. They have owned a home here in Key West for years. They are part of the Key West fabric.
Both Mike and Tina are members of the military forces of the Conch Republic. Mike is in the Conch Air Force. He flies a World War I bi plane during the annual battle commerating Key West’s secession from the Union some 25 years ago. He is a bombadier. He drops rolls of toilet paper on the U.S. Coast Guard vessels. Tina is a member of the Conch Navy. She mans a pirate ship and throws eggs, tomatoes and heads of lettuce at the Coast Guard cutters.
Like these people!
Enjoy your day!
