HOME AND FIGHTING TO STAY AWAKE

I'm home again, worn out like an old shoe, but still breathing. When I got here I raked the snow off the parts of our roof that I can reach - it appears we had a load of it from what I pulled down.

We were able to stretch out a bit on the train and got some sleep. The further north we went the more it looked like we were in a scene from the movie Reds heading into Siberia. The train conductors kept saying over the intercom that some of the doors might be frozen shut when we stopped to let people off and at one point they were shoveling snow from the passage way separating our car from the next. But with all that said I love riding the train even if it is slower than planes. I had a good book. We need more rail.

This video above is a pretty good review of what happened yesterday in DC at the climate change-No coal protest and lobby day. I do hope these young folks don't allow themselves to be steered into the Democrat party corral - that would be a huge mistake if that happened.

The U.S. economy depends on the U.S. military and vice-versa. The only thing that will change the military posture is changing the economy. To the extent that we can promote Green/locavore/remediation/sustainable/people-friendly projects, we can change the economy. This means change in our homes, our cities,counties and states, as well as on the national level.
