IT's FUGLY Outside, and "News on the Run"

Not often one gets to make a Leap Day post, let alone one in the middle of a snow storm.  If you are out and about in this nasty weather, please drive carefully, and get home safely as it is FUGLY out there.  The weather forecast for the next few days is not pretty, temperatures will be up and down, the snow sometimes turning into freezing rain, with the occasional bout of I said, it is FUGLY out there.

"News on the Run"

Mr. Money Bags scored wins in both Michigan and Arizona yesterday, but both Gingrich and Santorum are doubling down heading into SUPER TUESDAY.  If Newt fails to deliver a win in Georgia look for him to be out of the running, with Santorum then hoping to stay in a bit longer hoping to pick up Gingrich's followers and thus have enough to force Romney into a brokered convention.  However, would think Vegas odds after yesterday see the smart money betting on a Obama verse Romney Presidential Election this that is the line up, my vote is going to go Obama's way.

In North Korea, like father like son...Seems that North Korea is now willing to halt nuclear activities, and stop launching missile in exchange for, I am not for people starving to death, but we have already danced this dance before, and North Korea's NEW LEADER has done nothing so far to show the world that he can be trusted any more than his father could be.  Verify FIRST, then start sending in food supplies.
"Today's announcement represents a modest first step in the right direction. We, of course, will be watching closely and judging North Korea's new leaders by their actions," Secretary of State Hillary Clinton said Wednesday before the House Appropriations Committee.

For those of us who fondly remember watching EVERY EPISODE of the "The Monkee's", teen idol Davy Jones has passed away at a side note to this, saw him perform live in Jacksonville Florida some three decades ago...cannot believe I am that old, nor can I believe he died at such a relatively young age.  In his time he was as big, if not bigger than Whitney Houston...wonder if he will get his EIGHT DAYS of FAME on CNN now.

Last but not least...AVOID BIG BROTHER....Google is about to take away more of our privacy, but there is a fairly simply way around it.  When on YouTube, Google and other services, MAKE SURE YOU ARE NOT SIGNED IN!  That should keep the Data Whores at bay for awhile.
