Hello everyone. My mom will be happy to see me update this, She uses it to find out if I am still alive.
I graduated with my BS in Fire Science on December 31st and started my graduate courses in January. It is much harder than I expected. So far I have one completed course with a 97.8 and in my current course I have an A in my first weeks assignments. I have noticed that they are much stricture on my APA formatting than they were in the undergraduate courses.
I had to put my cat, Nephi, down last month. She only weighed 2 or 3 lbs and was losing control of her bladder. I had a very hard time and still catch myself going to look for her. So we now have 2 cats and 3 dogs. I don’t go to any places that have animals for adoption. One of our dogs and one cat seems to be looking for Nephi, so far I have not slept with her ashes as my wife did with Anika’s.
Our winter has been cold but not much snow, we only got an inch or two even when they predicted that we would have a lot. Parts of our fence blew down again in some wind storms, It cost almost a thousand dollars to get someone out to fix it. Hopefully it will never blow down again.
I have been watching the Russia/Ukraine situation and have noticed a lot of Republicans and Tea-publicans calling for the US to do something. I know that a lot of oil comes through the pipeline that runs through the Ukraine but I can’t understand why they are so set on this country sticking its nose where it doesn’t belong. I am sure that most of those calling for us to do something have never served in the military or have any family members in the military. It is easy to send someone else’s child, wife or father to fight an die just so they can make out on earning more money on their stocks of defense firms.
Rand Paul and Ted Cruz, who’s real name is Rafael Edward Cruz, are the real bastards, neither of them deserve to be in our Senate. Rafael loved to make it known that the presidents middle name is Hussein. If you didn’t watch the news you will have missed both Paul and Rafael bending over backwards trying to please the Tea-Publicans and the Jewish lobby.
I would love to see both of these idiots lose their seats in the Senate.
