Just Say No, Shocking, -and- It's Not Mine

Just Say No - CNNGallup poll shows only 16% would vote for Hillary in 2008
Shocking - rookie EMT accidentally kills co-worker with defibrillator
It's Not Mine - woman arrested for bringing pot pipe into courthouse

It was cold this morning! Even though the sun shone brightly, there was ice on RAMMMMM's windshield at 8 AM! Fortunately, there is no wind!

I received a telephone call yesterday from someone who said he was soliciting advertising for a poster to raise money for the local high school football team. I told the caller that I do not abide telephone solicitation--particularly when the solicitor's Caller ID is blocked.

The caller said, "Well, if you don't want to support your high school, that's your problem!" I replied, "It is you I do not wish to support, and that is your problem!" Plonk!

A few hours later, I was adding a local event to the Calendar of North State Events. The information for the event was contained in the Corning Chamber of Commerce manager's weekly article. Also contained in that article was a warning from the coach of the high school football team stating that there is unauthorized solicitation being made and the school has no affiliation with the company making the solicitation!

Aarrgg, as Cap'n Jack often says!
