Super TuesdayPosted: March 6, 2012
The title for today’s post might lead to some disappointment if you’re here about things of a specific political nature. I have one brief, general thing to say about politics and then I’m moving on.
Today is a big day in U.S. primary politics, particularly for the Republican presidential candidates, and Ohio is a big state for them (or so I hear). Politics are the main reason I wouldn’t mind moving out of Ohio, although it’s unlikely to help. Like the other states that have already been through this or are going through it today, we have been assaulted with political ads, many of them of the negative variety. The phone has been ringing off the hook with robo-calls (why is it there is no Do Not Call Registry for political calls??), mostly from the local Tea Party asking us to vote no on the school levy because they apparently don’t think education and the future of our children is important even if they do tend to agree on some things with the folks from Restore Our Future (a super Political Action Committee supporting Mitt Romney). Restore Our Future?? How is that even possible? The future hasn’t happened yet. How can you restore something that hasn’t occurred?? (This might be a good example of why we need to be supporting our schools.)
I am pretty much fed up with politics and the political climate in general. I would love it if these folks would stop trying to insert themselves in my home through phone calls and political ads. My home is a No Politics Zone. Send me a brochure outlining your plans and political beliefs. If I’m interested, I will call you for more information or come to see you at your next speech/visit that takes place nearby. Thank you.
Moving right along… The photos are from the weekend, a weekend that did not involve politics, thank goodness.
Instead, it involved dancing, bowling, family, and fun.
We’re having wonderfully warm weather here in the Bogs today. It was cloudy this morning, but the sun eventually made an appearance. It will be warmer tomorrow. I’m hoping to get out to the garden for a couple of hours. There is a lot of work to be done in and around the garden before we start planting.
The snow has been slowly melting throughout the day. There was a thin layer of ice on part of the pond this morning, but that was gone before noon.
That’s it from the Bogs for today. Thank you for visiting. Sorry about the slight rant. Hopefully some of the photos made up for it.
