Minnesota's Budget Surplus

There is some political fighting going on now regarding Minnesota's (alleged) 1.9 Billion dollar surplus. So I thought I would give my opinion.

1. Don't spend it stupidly by sending everyone a (small) check to give it back like when Jesse Ventura was governor.
2. Give money back to the schools that was taken when there was a budget shortage not so long ago.
3. Save some of the money to use NEXT TIME there is a budget shortage.
4. Why are my taxes so high if we have extra money?
5. How about fixing some of the bad roads and bridges?
6. The environment is always a good place to put extra money.

Sweet!

My room got upgraded to a suite at my company's out-of-town conference. It is as big as my first house and bigger than the condo I used to have!

When You're Lost in a Snowstorm

When you are lost and driving in a snowstorm, stay calm and follow that beer truck. Whatever happens, only beer can keep you hydrated, fed and happy until warmer weather comes.

The Long Way

Snow + Freeway Traffic Stopped + Wrong Turn + Lost Now + Stuck between River & Downtown + Back On Track + Go This Way Now + Finally In Familiar Territory = Got There!!!

My 3-year-old son says, "Did we take the long way daddy?"
I look at the odometer.
"Yeah," I reply, "27 extra miles. We took the long way..."

-10 Degrees

-10 Degrees Fahrenheit. That's -23 Celsius for metric users. It's pretty cold outside when you think about it. Now add the wind and you better have a warm coat.
