Workers Memorial Garden

This is a great piece located at the Minnesota State Capitol grounds. Unfortunately, I know someone with a severe work allergy who while he considers himself an "artist," probably won't understand this particular piece of art.

At one of the many Anti-Trump Townhall meetings that have been going on across the nation lately, CuTRis was apparently seen wearing Tom Brady's stolen Super Bowl jersey. CuTRis was taken into custody by St. Paul police and later released when it was found that he had purchased the replica jersey for $1.14 on CuTRis denied knowing where the real jersey is and said he only bought the replica as a “painting shirt.”

uncle lazy

That morning as the father was talking to his young son about rest, drinking lots of liquids and eating good food (so he could get over his cold), the young boy mentioned that his uncle eats hot dogs and candy almost everyday.

So the father took that opportunity to tell his son that lots of things that his uncle does are not good for you. Eating hot dogs and candy, sleeping half the day and playing on the computer instead of working are not how you should try to live your life if you want to be successful and happy. The father let him know that this is why his uncle doesn't have his own house and lives with grandpa and grandma.

Then when they went into grandpa and grandma's house, the young son quickly noticed his uncle's "stuff" was still out in the living room. He was apparently making "flowers" from colored paper last night before retiring to his room—because he is an "artist."

That was when the father realized that maybe he was being too judgmental. A 40-something year old man should be able to fart around, not work and live off of his aging parents if he wants to.

Irony of Saving the Environment

The irony of the Dakota Pipeline Protest, is that it has created an environmental disaster in the process. The protesters have left behind enormous piles of garbage.

When the original idea was to "save the environment," it seems that this mountain of trash is jeopardizing the environment instead. Fracking can become an environmental hazard when it allows "brine" to escape into waterways—but economic gains are often placed ahead of the environmental risks. Transporting oil by rail is dangerous, and pipelines have issues too. So while the battle goes on, the protesters have created an environmental disaster in the process. Looking in from the outside, it all seems so insane. There has to be a better way to handle these disputes.

Happy Valentine's Day!

Certainly having a young child has made this Valentine's Day much more enjoyable. His drawings and cards are a joy to see!

This Room is a Disaster Area

It was a bit dusty and some things could have been put away; but I don't think I would call it a disaster area...

Super Bowl LI

To the Atlanta Falcons,

Please beat the New England Patriots on Sunday. But remember, even though the Patriots are very good, they might cheat anyway. So be ready for anything and play your best.

Leaders with Mental Issues

I have at times, considered that the leadership of certain countries (and companies) was bad, not very intelligent or simply malevolent and egotistical and self-serving. But it seems that such leadership is much closer to home than ever before. It is a sad statement that such a selection was made; but in my opinion it is the backlash from the lack of truth and the dysfunction of political correctness in recent history. It is also a sad fact that before society can reach a "middle-ground," it is often "necessary" for the "pendulum" to swing to the opposing side first. Hopefully, in the process, not too much damage is done and the opportunity to learn from mistakes is not too costly.

Happy Groundhog Day!

My son asked me about "Whistlepig Day." I think he was checking to see if I knew as much as Curious George does...
