cat in the snow

odd

It's quite a shock to wake up to 2 things simultaneously: a sunny, cloudless sky and snow covering the roof and decks.

There is absolutely no snow on the street, but some of the cars driving on it are still covered in snow.

One of my instructors performing at Dante's last Friday night:




I know it's dark. I used Windows Movie Maker to increase the brighteness 4 times. Before that, you couldn't see it at all.

Obama's health care plan

According to Obama's new spending plan, if you make more than $200,000 per year your taxes will go up to help pay for health care. I'm down with that. I just wrote my $388 check yesterday for one month of healthcare and I think it's outrageous. The irony is, when I was unemployed, the state of Washington paid for most of my health care and only made me pay $30 per month for full coverage. That sets up a system so that people who do nothing or don't work, get nearly free health care. And those of us that work our our asses off 40 to 70 hours a week to make our dreams come true, get strapped with monthly health care premiums so high it could feed a starving family for a month. I shouldn't have to close my business and stay unemployed to get affordable health care. But that's how it works.
