So is everyone pleased that the likely Presidential matchup will be between Romney and Obama? I sure am. Two fine Harvard men. We are lucky as a country to have such a choice before us. Either way, America wins.
The Bjorn Lomborg film "Cool It" is available on NetFlix watch instantly. Saw it today for the first time. If you're in the camp of accepting global warming but rejecting the alarmism, it's a rather decent little flick. Also, "Waiting for Superman" has been out a few weeks now. That one is a great movie and mandatory viewing for readers of this blog who have followed the teachers union protests. That includes you, too, Garage.
The NYT reviewed the new art museum here.The one negative cited: lack of folk art. One's opinion on whether this is a negative or positive may vary.
Unfrozen indeed. Looks almost autumnal.somefeller said...So is everyone pleased that the likely Presidential matchup will be between Romney and Obama? I sure am. Two fine Harvard men.

@Freeman I saw that. Looks great. (I thought the complaint about the lack of folk art was pathetic, like they had to find something wrong.)
Lack of folk art is generally a plus.
And the museum looks like it's worth the special trip. Institutions like this can transform a whole town or area. Marfa, Texas is a prime example.
The complaint about a lack of "folk art" gives all the state, county and regional artist groups, AND educational groups, an excuse to request grant money from the government for their artistic "folks".Want to bet that every single request for more dollars for the arts will focus on scratching the complainer's "itch"?
And with taxpayer's money.
How did we become a nation beholding to "itchers" who need someone else to do their scratching?
I heard on the radio that a 77-million dollar lottery winner has failed to collect his or her winnings. That the winning ticket has now expired. So I'm wondering, what in the world happened? Was the ticket lost, or forgotten, or maybe the purchaser simply expired. That one day soon the winning ticket will fall from a shirt pocket, or surface from under a pile of unpaid, overdue bills. Or better, remain where it is for eternity.
PALM HARBOR, Fla. (AP) — A Florida animal sanctuary says Cheetah the chimpanzee from the Tarzan movies of the early 1930s has died at age 80.The Suncoast Primate Sanctuary in Palm Harbor announced that Cheetah died Dec. 24 of kidney failure.Sanctuary outreach director Debbie Cobb on Wednesday told The Tampa Tribune (http://bit.ly/rRuTeJ ) that Cheetah was outgoing, loved finger painting and liked to see people laugh. She says he seemed to be tuned into human feelings.Cheetah was the comic relief in the Tarzan series starring American Olympic gold medal swimmer Johnny Weissmuller. Cobb says Cheetah came to the sanctuary from Weissmuller's estate sometime around 1960.Cobb says Cheetah wasn't a troublemaker. Still, sanctuary volunteer Ron Priest says that when the chimp didn't like what was going on, he would throw feces.

My ice fishing buddy in Madison is not happy.
Not missing the ice snow and cold.
I'm planning a motorcycle ride through all 48 contiguous states in a 20 day time span this summer.Piece of cake. What could go wrong?
"I'm planning a motorcycle ride through all 48 contiguous states in a 20 day time span this summer."Impressive!We want to do a big drive -- car drive -- through the western states. I've never done the northern tier of states.
Althouse - The northern tier of states is a wonderful trip! There is so much to see, especially if you get off the main highway and stay on rural roads.I rode through the norther tier a three years ago, on the way to Alaska on two wheels, then back through on my way home some 40 days later.That trip was blogged beginning here.If you do take the big trip, I suggest including time exploring North Dakota, Wyoming, Montana and Idaho. Don't miss Little Big Horn National Park. Spend time in the Badlands, and in Sand Point, Idaho.Cross the border and drive up to Banff. And by all means, drive Highway 93 through Jasper National Park. If there is a road through a more beautiful area, I have not found it.Happy Trails!
