I wonder -- does a "french taco" have a wine salsa?🤔

Another morning of white shimmer -- only frost 👍😁

Big news in my area...mass shooting at a Walmart out 30 miles away.😔. 7 dead & 5 others in hospital. Seems it began in a break room, about half hr before store closing...night stocking crew in there for instruction. A member of mgmt or targeting mgmt (per witness) began shooting. He is among 7 dead. Unsure at this time who shot him. (Self or another) ??

Just NO reason for these shootings everywhere. There have been a few instances of other unnecessary shootings this week...some gang related, as 3 teens were shot in a car. All totally sad, scary, unnecessary. 😫🤬

Just saw the sad news that @Mini Horses reported. All the outrage by the representatives that we need to get a handle on all the gun problems. We need to get as handle on the total lack of respect of people for others, and that comes with some morals, and learning there are consequences for actions while young. There doesn't seem to be any reverence for life in general... and especially in the 15-35 year old brackets. And no, I have no idea of the sex or age of this shooter... just like the unknown one that killed 4 students just the other day in Idaho in their beds. That was with a knife.... guns are not the problem...knives are not the problem... it is something that is sadly lacking in the fabric of our society today.
I don't have the answer except that so many younger people are not willing to work for what they get; and not willing to start at the bottom and work their way up learning that life is not instant gratification and experience is gained along the way.
There has always been violence in this world... from the beginning of mankind. But it is more of a "disease" in the younger generation than I think it used to be....maybe we have caused some of it by always "wanting our kids to have it better than we did"......

It is a beautiful day here, sun came out and temp jumped 10 degrees. Low of 36 feels like spring compared to the 20s and cold wind. So sad for the families of those that will never see this beautiful day or their loved ones again.

I"m not even going to try to start the tractor at the hayfield until noon or so...
I should've waited. It was 6-8 hrs and a 12 pack later, the trailer was hooked up. Don't ask, just don't. I left Tue instead.
@CLSranch what in sam hill are you doing showering before going outside, when the temps are so low???
A habit from going walking the dog OUTSIDE last thing right before bed. Even in the winter.
I must have updated the wrong update on my phone???? No idea. But it only gives me issues if I try to post! so I have been reading, but not posting.

This post is from my COMPUTER (I almost never online forum from my computer)
Honeslty I do nothing besides text and call with my phone. It has 0 apps and my laptop only has a few that it didn't come with.

Amen.
Many people tell me to let my kids be kids, times have changed, get them a tablet, smart phone, some other da%n smart device. I could rant. My brother used to tell me Chivalry is dead why do you do it. I said just because your an a$$ doesn't mean I need to be.

EXACTLY! They all blame the TOOL,, don't want to accept the fact they didn't raise their children, they let them be feral and this is the result. Excuses abound - working mother, etc - excuses for not taking responsibility.

Very much true!

The blasted computer things... have to keep the kids away from them for as long as possible.

Kid 3... going into town to talk to an Army recruiter right now......

Hummmmm

Not clear as to my thoughts on the matter.
You can be proud and scared at the same time. Just remind him what my brother said, even after 9 yrs in the army. The recruiter is going to lie to you. They're worse than a car salesman.

Even the home schooling we're doing has some computer time in it. That is the only computer time. I keep thinking about how much more work I did around the house I did without t.v. or internet. I spent yrs without it at the old place. Then I got tired of picking weeds. 😅
