Catching up

Well, it's been quite a while since I've posted anything.

I've found work, for UL (Underwriters Laboratories).  They'll determine the actual position when our class of five are done with training, but it'll be in customer service.  Should be an interesting company to work for.


Hillary Clinton should take lessons from her husband on smiling naturally.  Every time she smiles, she reminds me of Beaker from "The Muppets."

Oil may back off for a while, same with other commodities, but longer-term the price will be going up, because the so-called "developing world" is finally, actually developing, and because at the same time, the world's supplies of easy-to-get, high-quality crude oil are going bye-bye.

I think the Democrats are counting their chickens too early if they think they're guaranteed a win in November.  Remember, Bush had four years of proven incompetence* behind him in 2004, and he still won.

I'm watching less and less TV.  I'm on my computer more and more.  Books take up about the same amount of time they always have.  I suppose that is a trend that has been going on for a while and will continue, unless some shows come on that truly interest me.  There are hardly any shows I TiVo that I really consider "must-watch."  I still enjoy a few, including "Top Gear," "Mythbusters," "Numb3rs," "CSI," and "The Simpsons," but I don't really miss them when there's not a new episode on.

*Presidential incompetence that is.  I'm not including the proven incompetence he showed throughout his life.

Welcome back! Congratulations on your new job, too.

It's been almost exactly 2 years since I gave up my traditional cable TV service. I have caught some episodes of "Terminator: Sarah Conner Chronicles" at the Fox on-demand video site.
