Considering how many big political guns are constantly firing at him, I have no idea how 1: he gets any sleep and 2: how he gets as much done as he does.
With all the foregoing soaking up news time, North Korea is mostly forgotten until the troll that is Kim Jung Un (actually, that’s being unkind to trolls), decides he’s being left out of the lime light so he fires another missile.
As I’ve said before, it’s quite easy to live a lifetime and not learn much.
Just look around and you’ll see lots of proof of that.
An observant human being catalogs what he has seen and, with knowing it, recognizes the trends and, when the time is right, he will recall the results and guide himself accordingly.
However, I have it all under control courtesy of a leaking propeller that has to come off, which means my little red playmate can’t leave the ground for a week.With all of that trial and error and trend analysis our brain takes on what appears to be an ability to actually “think”.However, it is really just us using the experiences and stored observations subliminally passed down by our ancestors to apply logic to many situations.Last time I worked on it, it was about 80 degrees out and sunny so the garage door was open and I could stand in it working on the car. Right now, it is anything but pleasant and I can’t leave the garage door open because rain will get on unpainted metal and there’s not enough room to work with it closed. This kind of gloomy weather reminds me of why I hated living in NJ. So, here I sit, more than a little frustrated with my mind wandering in circles. I guess going back to a simpler time for a few hours has its benefits.One of those circles keeps coming back to me sitting in front of the TV last night watching John Wayne’s 1950’s movie, Red River. It was old home week and I found myself sinking into the chair, as enjoyment forced me to relax, which I hadn’t realized that I hadn’t done for some time. I’m positive that Marlene and I spend too much time watching the news. Usually it’s Fox, but we do networks and CNN periodically just to remind ourselves why we don’t watch them but we do want the other points of view.
