    • And They Made A Desert: 80 to 90% Drop In Nutrients In Food
      Stumbled across this lovely chart the other day. The core fact most people, including the folks in the “best every world” Panglossian movement (like Pinker) don’t seem to understand, is that even if they were right (questionable), the prosperity we have is based on burning down our house. “Sure is hot!

Good Bye 2014 and good riddance

2014 was supposed to be the rebuilding year. Well, it wasn’t. Health issues still plagued us well into the spring. It was scary, expensive and disheartening.

The job front wasn’t much better. I’m still in a part time position that barely keeps the lights on and the internet humming. So, yeah, about the same level of income that Lambert is managing to cobble together. This is not a good turn of events considering that Brook is in her freshman year and I can’t really send her any money. But this is clearly what the economy is demanding. There will be blood. Unfortunately, it will be mine.

The good news is I have met some people who are helping me get my act together and introducing me to potential employers. That has been a very bright spot for the end of the year. So, maybe 2015 will be the rebuilding year.

That is, unless the Congress and Obama crap all over it with even more penny pinching austerity measures meant to drive us to the brink of personal insolvency.

It could happen.

But, hey, the presidential campaign is going to start winding up next year. Katiebird and I think this site needs a major makeover and we’re going to start working on it. Who knows, we might even get to 52000 unique page views per day again.

In the meantime, let’s pour a cup of cheer tonight and, um, I dunno, watch a movie? Do some Wii Ski? I was invited to a big New Year’s Eve party at my cousin’s house with his band of Greek relatives but I have to get up early tomorrow. Maybe next year. But if I were going, this is what I would be drinking:

Rico is tending bar tonight and we’ve got a nice selection of appetizers. Try the seared scallops with creme fraiche and caviar, piggy back dates and stuffed mushrooms.

Tonight, we managed to snag Vince Guaraldi for music. I think he’s about to play Cast Your Fate to the Wind:

 

Don’t forget to tip your server. And try to keep it civil in here.
