GOOD BYE 2014
Only two more days left in 2014;Dawg and I are slowly recuperating from the stresses of the past week but have still some more house restoration to normal.
The biggest casualty has been my den which became a dressing room as well as a storeroom. I have almost reached its customary organized disorganized state where I can find everything.
Meanwhile the year is ending with several catastrophes; a lost airplane over the Java Seas; and a fire on a deep sea ferry in the Adriatic carrying both vehicles and about 450 passengers which took about three days to rescue all.
Violence between individuals and the police has escalated despite calls for calm. Two policemen in New York City were assassinated by a disturbed man who committed suicide. Two more in California were shot at by two men supposedly from the side of the road. In Florida two sheriff’s deputies directing traffic in a church parking lot were targets.
A couple in Hawaii had to suddenly change their wedding site from a golf course because Obama wanted to play golf. It was true that he had no idea that a wedding had been scheduled there; blame his staff.
Here in Oz the Council meets for the first time in 2015 on Monday. Perhaps this blog will return to normal.
