    Hope everyone had a great thanksgiving weekend. I couldn't make it to the family gathering due to my present disability hopefully I'll start my new therapy soon and get back on my legs. I did get to eat a plate of the food saved for me by my family it was great, they had turkey, ham, mashed and executive potatoes, Mac and broccoli casseroles, stuffing, yams, bread rolls. Well hopefully next year I'll get to participate. Again hope everyone had a great holiday. Those in Canada too as I've read lots of Canadians have adopted our thanksgiving tradition.

    Russian foreign minister Lavrov says Russia considers the US troops in Eastern Ukraine a threat to Russian security. Lavrov says they will respond if they decide it is necessary. If Russian security is threatened, the Russian troops will answer to the threat.

    That's good, there's nothing like being home back where you feel relaxed and comfortable.

    Well the lakes iced over and more snow is falling. It's actually been mild so far - temperatures in the mid 30*F, but that's about to change. Calling for highs in the teens and twenties with lows below zero.

    Gabapentin, helps me. Two to three times a day. Sciatic due to a bulging disc and spinal stenosis. No side affects from the pills. Doctors say my back is a mess. I don’t want to know anything more.

    F1 championship Hamilton vs Verstappen.....

    and naturally a collision as Verstappen brakes suddenly..both having as many points so it´s gonna be down to the last race.

    Hope everyone is enjoying the 80 the anniversary of the day of infamy. Watching the history channel right now. There was just too many mistakes made then and hopefully they say we learned from it only to stumble again in 911. WWII we only had a hand full of intelligence people by the end we had thousandas of full time people. 911 our stupid intelligence services couldn't seem to help each other sending memos instead of alerts. Hopefully we won't have those shorts. A few warned of possible of attack but we're dismissed saying the japanese were too weak and didn't have the tech to be of any danger. Hope those dorks were replaced after the attack. Any everybody had a great day. I'm a little disappointed that there's so few programs to pay honor for today I remember when I was a kid up to jr college that most channels would have programs all day to honor pearl harbor

    Well it should give us lower electric bills but no way the infrastructure is getting old and breaking down, so they need more money to rebuild the whole power grid nation wide
    When I stayed in Ohio the gal I stayed with complained about her power bill I looked at it and like two thirds was surge charges, all for infrastructure reconstruction. So I guess Ohio getting the money to reconstruct their power grid, or expand it.

    Hope Max does not try to collide with Hamilton. If they end up with even points, Max wins the championship as he has won more races during the season...

    This is interesting. Problematic but interesting.

    https://news.google.com/articles/CB...W1wL25jbmExMjg1NDE1?hl=en-US&gl=US&ceid=US:en

    NBC News traveled to a military testing center for exclusive access to the first public demonstration of the Switchblade 300, a small, low-cost “kamikaze” drone made by AeroVironment, which sources said the U.S. military has used quietly for years in targeted killing operations in Afghanistan, Iraq and Syria.

    The demonstration told a story of promise and peril.

    Americans have become accustomed to images of Hellfire missiles raining down from Predator and Reaper drones to hit terrorist targets in Pakistan or Yemen. But that was yesterday’s drone war.

    You wouldn’t want them in the wrong hands…so man portable too. Not that a kamikaze drone is a new idea…WW2 dabbled even…on the switch side, I watched a video not long ago on a new anti drone gun…and so it continues…
