No Water

Having no water service is much worse than no electricity...

Thanks to a burst water main or somesuch, our neighborhood is currently without water.

I'm getting thirsty.

If it's not back on when we get back from dinner, maybe I'll have to take a trip to the lake to pump some water...

Federal Lands Unconstitutional?

Have a look at this pre-filed bill in the Washington State Legislature for next year's session. Basically, it says that the federal government is constitutionally prohibited from owning land in the state of Washington without the state's consent, so the state is taking it back.

Oddly enough, I had this very idea a few months ago, as a way to curb the federal government's power. All states should do this.

But I doubt this bill will ever see the light of day. It will probably be "x-filed" or lost in a subcomittee for all time.

My, that water's cold, eh?

I flip over my calendar at work to December, and this is the photo I'm greeted with. I can't stop smiling!
