    Hello All!
    Glad the election is over and done. It was nice to hear regular commercials today on the morning news.

    And in light of yesterday's vote, I have to say I really dread the number of "Rocky mountain High" jokes that are going around. The best line of the day though came from the governor, who, when stating the the Feds will be challenging the law, said "Don't go for the Doritos and goldfish crackers just yet"...

      Manning saw this coming. It's why he bought so many Papa John's franchises around the area

      At least that what my Face Book news feed looks like.

      Some people need to get a grip.

        I saw a FB posting a couple of days ago that went something like this: "Here's a little known fact: you can be a Democrat or a Republican and remain quiet about it." Loved it!!!!

    Good morning....its over and we move on, not much else we can do, I guess. BTW, I'm also of the mind that those who did not vote do not get to complain later.

    In other news, the NorEaster is headed our way, forecast is for 2-4 inches of snow tonight and overnight. Yippee, just what we need. Happy Wednesday, everyone!!

      OK, here is what you need to do. Click the music clip I posted earlier. Close your eyes and picture yourself in a 1972 Chrysler Imperial LeBaron. You're leaving the city and the only thing you can see in the rear-view mirror is your troubles. Picture it. Picture it. It worked didn't it, if even for a few seconds?

        Yup, it works, Sir!!!

          Amazing how it works huh? Now do it again and picture Witty One and Jdizz lighting one up from their two oz stash.

      That is one place I would move to in a New York minute! Would love to go hunting with Truth sometime.

    Happy Hump Day. This music seems to be appropriate for getting a groove on if that's something you are into.

    SIGH. It's called Flori-duh for a reason. Looking forward to seeing which side of the fence my home state fell on – 12 hours later. In any case, Happy post-election day! Cuban coffee & pastelitos to celebrate the end of the campaign season!

    SO relieved that we're not going to have Rowan Atkinson as our VP.
