I used to love The Weather Channel. Every day it was the first thing I turned on when I get ready for work. I loved the “local on the 8′s” because I was sure I’d see the local forecast at least once while I was getting ready.

There’s a group of people who come here looking for…something. It has gotten smaller of late, and I’m having a hard time spending the time to find stuff to pass on, or about which to opine. It has gone on for a while now. There’s plenty of stuff to talk about, but I don’t have much of anything to say. I still get pissed off or care passionately about the stuff that I started this little soapbox for, and I yell about it from my even smaller soapbox in my own house, but they only want to hear so much before they tune me out.

Go read this. Incredible that what was once considered normal -and expected- is now considered by the media to be “alternative.” The article is about freestyle skiing halfpipe gold medalist David Wise, who has -who can believe it- a wife and child at age 23.

For a coffee maker?
I’m working on a contract with a financial services company near Richmond, VA, that has very nice facilities and treats their employees with some great amenities. One of them is a Van Houtte Latte lounge coffee maker, which is provided free of charge, and makes about ten different kinds of coffee and hot chocolate drinks. It’s very nice, and I use it about twice every day.
