Thank you blogger
Saying for the Day:It is good to let somebody know we are thankful for them.
I want to take the time in my blogging adventure to say thank you Blogger.
That’s right “Thank You Blogger”.
I know that’s not what we usually say about Blogger.
We complain when its slow.
We complain when we can’t get in to somebody’s comment box.
We complain when we get one of those “the technician has been advised” notices.
Those things always seem to come at the wrong time.
So we carp and we grumble.
And we say there goes Blogger again.
But not today.
Today I want to say that I marvel at what Blogger has done.
It has taken thousands of people with limited computer skills and made it possible to have a blog of their own.
In fact they have made it possible to have as many blogs as they want.
They have done this in such a way that it doesn’t take long to learn enough so that we can get our thoughts out to people we have never met.
It does all this and it works most of the time.
It has some pains.
They are growth pains for the most part.
They come from serving so many people that there is more of a chance of some part going wrong.
The best part is they have done this without charging me a cent.
Not one red cent.
So because I love blogging and because I am really frugal.
Thank you Blogger. Thank you very much.
News from Pigeon Falls-the little town in my backyard where the trains still run and old ladies hunt rabbits-Eino invited a rock carver in to look at the stone statue in his basement. Fredrick , is an old friend of Eino’s who makes his living carving stone statues. He examined the statue and told Eino he had never seen anything like it. It isn’t carved . There are no marks on the surface to indicate that it was chiseled or sanded . Further it isn’t plaster or cement but it has the feel of something that was poured. The stone seems like marble but it isn’t. It seems to be some kind of pressed rock. Fredrick is stumped. So Eino still doesn’t know if this is an elaborate fake or an experiment gone wrong. Perhaps he never will.
Somebody tried to break into Eino’s garage last night. It happened at about midnight. Eino has an elaborate alarm system and it went off. The outside camera got good pictures of the intruder. But it doesn’t seem like a local person. Eino sent a copy of the tape to the Homeland Security People in the hope that they might be able to identify him. Eino says he isn’t local but he still looks familiar.
Nancy says the big topic in the restaurant now is the school sports name. People are not happy with the “ The New Potatoes” as the name for all the teams. The students have gotten a lot of ribbing from students at other schools. The opposition cheer leaders are having a field day with. It could be worse . They could have changed to” The Pigeons”. The school board better put some more thought into this name business.
So far nobody has indicated that they would be willing to run for Mayor or Town Council. Day by day the list of non-candidates is growing. Jack said he would but he goes to Florida in the winter. It would be a long commute for meetings.

We got up late this morning. Betty got up very late. We tried Tylenol PM last night and it seemed to have worked. I finished Dawn's print out. In the afternoon we left the fortress and went to Iron Mountain. There we got a new burner for the stove, ate at dairy queen, and went to my favorite collectibles store. I now have prizes through to the end of December. they are unique. You don't get this great stuff at Wal Mart. I decided I would start the Halloween stuff this Monday as it takes a long time to get to people. Well I need a breathing treatment.
