We are a commune of inquiring, skeptical, politically centrist, capitalist, anglophile, traditionalist New England Yankee humans, humanoids, and animals with many interests beyond and above politics. Each of us has had a high-school education (or GED), but all had ADD so didn't pay attention very well, especially the dogs. Each one of us does "try my best to be just like I am," and none of us enjoys working for others, including for Maggie, from whom we receive neither a nickel nor a dime. Freedom from nags, cranks, government, do-gooders, control-freaks and idiots is all that we ask for.
As global warming continues to wreak havoc with the weather, snowmakers impose a nostalgic order — albeit one that does nothing to help the situation, since snowmaking runs on electricity (and water, of course, one and a half to six gallons a minute, depending on the size of the machine). Charles Santry, president of Snow Economics, said his Backyard Blizzard Sport machine, which has a 1.5 horsepower engine, can use up to 1,650 watts. A clothes dryer guzzles more power, but snowmaking is certainly not going to win any green awards.
Sheesh. Al Gore is the king of the world. His message is everywhere. Why would anyone want to be President of the USA when they can be king of the world? It does seem Hollywood & Hollywood North do not need Washington. They rule.
Fingers crossed for a huge Gore Effect blizzard in TO March 23.
Another example of Times innumeracy. Think about it: these guys STAY HOME to sled on their little snow hill. They don't fire up the car and drive three miles (or a hundred and twenty) to some other place to sled. Their friends walk over to play, too. The power to run the sprayer doesn't begin to compare.
