I have just taken a new job in Great Falls, Montana. A new state and new areas to explore.

First things first. JOEKENTUCKY celebrated his EIGHTY NINTH BIRTHDAY a couple days ago. Patriarch of the Kentucky Clan, Joe has done very well and is feeling good as of birthday time.
While I sat in a blizzard in the Tahoe on the phone, JK waxed poetic about 70 degrees and sunny calm in Kentucky. GOLF weather. The sad (for me) truth is that JK will probably kick my ass in golf AGAIN, as usual, when I drag him out to play in about a month. I can just hear it now... Hey son, how about playing for a little cash? DotMom needs a new pair of shoes. He just bunts the ball down the middle of the fairway, then doubles the bet before we hit our approach shots. He has collected my college expense twofold.
I kid. He has never taken a dime from me, nor I him. But the sad truth is that he will beat me again when we play, as usual. He taught me how to play and enjoy the game. And every time we play, he teaches me another lesson. See you in a month DAD.
We are hearing more details about this summer. 22 new vessels are coming through Dutch heading to Northern Alaska. Dutch is the last deep water port before heading north. Could be interesting.
The BIG GAME is tomorrow. It goes off around 2 PM local time. Right in the middle of day. I will try to take a two hour lunch and watch it. Hope THAT works out. I would like to see LOUISVILLE win, in a huge upset. I expect KENTUCKY to win by 8. Either way, I go to sleep with a smile. Ohio State will win and be in the finals. And the UL / UK winner will (obviously) win the National Championship again.
Dave, watch the second half of the final four games. You may enjoy.
Just finished my taxes. Normally I have my return by now, just too busy. I LAUGH at the forms we have to fill out. WHO designed this? I really think the US GOVERNMENT could fill out our tax returns form us at this point. Send it to us and ask us to approve or not. Such a messed up system right now. Hell, I graduated with honors and I have no clue. Last two years I sent the return in, knowing there was a return coming. Both years I got a notice I was due MORE than I expected.
Why not let them do the whole deal?
Today the city made a rear flank attack on the snow. The plows came up Haystack and widened the road . It was one lane in many spaces. Now the piles along the road are higher, but the road is wider. It helps. And it keeps us ahead if we get dumped on tonight. We are getting significant snow almost every day.
I have no doubt that VIRAL video about the cats, fox, and eagle is real. No reason to doubt it. How much more does VIRAL pay versus non viral?
Almost 1 AM, gotta go. Feel free to point out my errors.
Heard there was at least one WINNER in Maryland for that lottery. Maybe another in Dutch?
