One More Day

God willing, I am going to take a fucking vacation and try to get my shit together after tomorrow.
More of a "Staycation", Kudos to the broke motherfucker that came up with that one.
Too many folks are doing it without a choice.
Do yerself a favor and start paying a bit of attention to the shit storm that is playing out in the world of High Finance, We Be Fucked.

    And, Busted, being the YouTube addict that I am, I had to go find the "cartoon". I mean, the one that was the source of the visual at the top of the permalink at theautomaticearth that I posted above.

    Not sure it's comforting. Like, not.

    I came here to remind you not to overdo it. Clean is good, but really, at the end of your days, is clean the most important thing? (This is coming from a reforming neat freak.)

    And then I find out there's research and thinky stuff! Hey - I'm an American. Don't make me think!

  5. have a good staycation....and take care...we need ya...

  6. The link is another of those that IE won't let me go to tonight.

    But as far as a staycation I'd been way past due for a few days off from shoveling shit and milking cows so I decided to take this afternoon and the next 4 days off and maybe do a little hiking and/or reppeling. Of course now it turns out rainy! But I suppose it doesn't matter much since I did something bad to my shoulder yesterday at the farm! But at least I did get out today and visited the Harpoon Brewery in Windsor, VT. And brought home a case of cider and a case of beer. At least I won't go thirsty the next 4 days while I'm nursing my shoulder back to health to get back to work. No rest for the weary they say and I can definitly believe it since I'm living it.


    It's a great day to start a vacation.
    Tag it. Make it yours. Start early, stay late.

    Don't forget to plan for the hair of the dog.

    Any change of venue will suffice.
    Even if it's only in your head.
    IOW, don't change your attitude, just adjust your altitude.
