  •  Don't let the bastards get you down (11+ / 0-)

    After listening to the morning's political talk shows, I almost want to crawl back into my bed, with the covers over my head.

    •  I used to watch the Sunday shows (7+ / 0-)

      religiously.  Tea, breakfast, the Sunday paper and the Sunday shows.  It was quite enjoyable when the world was a better place.

      Now I almost never watch them.  KBO has the barest of bare bones channels and only because he has to in order to keep the Comcast internet.  TV hasn't been on once since I've been here except to watch Netflix once.   Other than my son watching (mostly On Demand) shows at home, that TV is off most of the time too.  I'll watch some sports sometimes.  But it's such crap now, the TV lineup.  

      That's why I figure they'll be coming for the internet soon.  These TV and cable networks have to be losing viewers like crazy if our house is any indicator.    They need to dominate the internet or they will have fewer and fewer viewers as the years go by.  The kids don't watch television.

      •  when the world was a better place..... (6+ / 0-)

        This morning still the talk of raising Medicare age, the People Pension changes, blah blah blah.

        The tiresome talk from the loyalists here in dkos that this will never happen wears me down, because other than Senator Bernie Sanders, the People's senator, who else has spoken out in their defense? Why aren't they fighting it along with the rest of us?

        When did the US stop being a better place? When did so many of us lose faith?

        I had planned on going out first thing this morning to the beach with coffee and Sunday paper, but it was foggy, then cloudy and too cold, and so nice and cozy inside with the heat on.

        How is the weather in NC?

        •  We are in Pennsylvania right now (4+ / 0-)

          and it's goddamn cold.  KBO has the fire going from morning til night and we are snuggled down with our laptops and books and such, and good food.  Pretty decadent.  

          We'll head for NC again in a few weeks, we think. Maybe less than a few weeks.  For the past couple of years we were down there for Valentine's Day.  Kind of romantic.  And we then tend to go for St. Patty's day too and KBO's birthday.  After that the rental season starts up again and we aren't as free to go on any week that we want. But it's still pretty free in the Spring too, so if we're lucky we'll be down there another 2-4 times.  We have some maintenance work to do too.

          But we did look at the forecast down there and it's going to war up midweek (here too) and we saw a forecast of 70 degrees that made us want to pack up the car and head there right now!  But KBO has a business trip to North Jersey starting tomorrow.

          •  The sun is out now, and it is warming up (4+ / 0-)

            I think the week ahead is going to have higher temperatures, so Yeah!

            I was California dreaming when I got up this morning. I miss California so much, but does not look like I will be moving until the economy here improves and all the vacant houses in foreclosure (and not even on the market yet, some after 2/3 years!) get sold.

            Real estate here has taken such a hit, worst than most states, so all I have is hope at this point.
