No power

I guess heavy snow and trees with leaves don't mix. I have no power and have to charge my cell phone in the car to have any link with the outside world.
My town, Southington, is in central CT and is color coded purple (70-80% dark). All the black area is 81-100% dark, the numbers go down as the colors get lighter. Its a bit chilly in the house but we'll head out of here soon. Hopefully power is restored for when we get home.

After a winter of record breaking snow totals.....

Welcome to Denver!!! Oh, wait, I mean Connecticut. We are expecting 6-12" of the stuff for a rare White Halloween. Last time we had snow in October was 1987, last time we got 8+ inches in October?? Unknown.
I love it, bring it on!

Cheshire,CT home invasion trial update

In a statement yesterday, the parents of Joshua Komisarjevsky (the mastermind of the Cheshire home invasion) said they knew he was troubled from the time he was a child. In fact, Komisarjevsky has admitted in a letter that he has killed 17 other women, he may have been just bragging though.
His parents were asked why, if they saw signs of a future serial killer, did they not get Joshua into therapy? Are you ready for this answer? Its a doosie.
It is against their religious beliefs. Yup.
They are Evangelists and feel that mental therapy and medications are a crutch for the unfaithful. They put all of their trust in Christ to guide and heal young Joshua.

Atheism- 1 Christianity- 0.

Monday review

Another good week, hard to believe it is almost halfway over. We did learn a few things, but one fact rises above all others....

The Indianapolis Colts fucking suck. They are the worst team in the NFL, they will draft Andrew Luck and keep Peyton for one season to train his replacement. Manning will then be traded to a team like Seattle and Luck will bring the Colts back to the promise land.

Sunday Services

Another one of my life influences sits with Charlie Rose and talks about personal success, standing by your family and finding faith in nature. Here is Mr. Neil Young.

Interesting Billboard

Billboard's with religious messages or quotes are nothing new, and they aren't only in the south or mid west but right here in Connecticut too. I saw one in Hartford the other day that really hit me, really made me think, and I have done some research on the group that rented the space for this message...

"I am an Atheist, and that is it"- Katherine Hepburn, brought to you by Freedom From Religion ffrf.org

A group of freethinkers who believe in the separation of church and state. Here is the header on their main page.

"The history of Western civilization shows us that most social and moral progress has been brought about by persons free from religion. In modern times the first to speak out for prison reform, for humane treatment of the mentally ill, for abolition of capital punishment, for women's right to vote, for death with dignity for the terminally ill, and for the right to choose contraception, sterilization and abortion have been freethinkers, just as they were the first to call for an end to slavery. The Foundation works as an umbrella for those who are free from religion and are committed to the cherished principle of separation of state and church."

Hank Williams Jr

In case you have not heard, Hank Williams Jr has been fired by Monday Night Football and they will no longer use his "Are you ready for some football" song. He made remarks in an interview comparing President Obama to Adolf Hitler.
Really? Is this really a fire-able offense? I don't know. I have been a huge supporter of Freedom of Speech and although his remarks may have been stupid, do they require him to be fired?
Did he threaten the President? No
Does anyone care what a country singer thinks? No
Will Hank being on MNF cost ESPN/Disney their image? Maybe.

I understand that Hank is an employee of the Disney Corporation and therefore must meet their standards of conduct, but is comparing the President to Hitler poor conduct?
People already don't like the Disney machine, so what's the big deal? I don't think Liberals will ban MNF because they don't like what Williams said, we all love football way too much. There are members of the Tea Party who now want to ban MNF for firing Williams, and they will do it, they are a passionate bunch.

In closing, Hank Williams said something stupid but MNF may have over reacted, and they better have a very good new song for this week because Sunday Night Football has become the premier game (and song).

Been damn busy

I realized the other day I have hardly been on Blogger lately. I've gone on, done my picks and gone on to other things. I have been reading other blogs quickly but haven't had time to sit and comment. Life gets busy with a newborn in the house.

Abby is starting to settle into a routine, which is good. The other two have been adapting very well, this is old news for Alyssa but it is Devin's first time being an older sibling. He has shown some attention seeking behavior, but being a 4 year old boy that is normal anyway. He did come up with this, "I'm the big brother, its my job to make sure the boys don't try to kiss Abby". I have no idea where he got that from, but he's right.
More later....
