Here in Montreal, the ‘other’ holiday last week shut down the city. It was literally deadsville. Thank goodness New Year’s day is a little more civilized and we don’t feel like we’re living on a farm in Nebraska with the wind whipping the snow across the street. Well, the wind is whipping the snow across the street but we don’t live in Nebraska.
On Tuesday we reported that there was a news media outlet that was supposedly the next target of hackers a la Sony. Turns out Billy-Bob from Tennessee (not his real name) said it was just a joke. Can we talk? A joke?
He needs to have his computer taken away from him for a very long time. Instead of revoking his license, revoke his computer privileges. What a dork.
We have many friends reposing down south in Florida and received news today that the internet was down for at least 18 hours. The Miami Herald reported it was due to a car accident around 1:15 am, but we heard from a reliable source that their outage began at midnight. As well, we went on the Atlantic Broadbent site and the comments confirmed our facts.
In case you didn’t know, today is the day to watch football down south. One can only imagine Bubba’s frustration, to put it mildly, that his games were unavailable to him. Plus all those commercials that were paid for (handsomely) and not watched. Wonder if anyone will ever know what happened. It will definitely have to come from a source not connected with Atlantic Broadbent.
Jeb Bush is the son of one president – George Herbert Walker Bush (president 1989-1993) and brother of another, George Walker Bush (president 2001-2009).
This past week, Mr. Bush, Florida’s former governor was a busy dude. He resigned all of his corporate and nonprofit board memberships, including with his own education foundation. Why you ask? Because if he’s going to run for President of the United States, he must divest himself of all his business interests.
Now get this: If he wins the presidential campaign and Hillary wins her campaign it will be a Bush-Clinton race again. Yes Blanche, put your hands over your eyes and pretend it ain’t so.
And speaking of presidential nominees, Hillary will have to decide pretty soon if she’s running or not. Let’s bet: We say she runs. Even if she loses to someone like Jeb Bush she will still look like a hero as the first woman to run for president. It’s a win-win situation. And then…she will be able to charge $500,000 instead of $250,000 for a speaking engagement.
If you’re bored these days we found something for you to occupy your time. Some ex-Korean dude who is angry at his country is planning to fill 100,000 balloons with that movie called The Interview and let them go over North Korea. Of course the weather has to cooperate or those balloons may wind up back where they started and that would be a pity.
Back to being bored. If you’re interested, look up Park Sang-hak and maybe give him a call. We’re pretty sure use an extra pair of hands.
Be happy you don’t live in Wyoming. This morning it was -48 fahrenheit. In case you didn’t know, at -36 Farhenheit and Celsius meet. So how cold was it in Wyoming? So cold that the politicians had their hands in their own pockets. Hehehehehe. Over a million people watched the ball drop last night in Times Square. It was freezing cold, there were no bathrooms, they were miles from the ball and had nowhere to go inside and get warm. We are guessing that the drawing card for this rather unappealing activity is watching the clock tick to midnight surrounded by complete strangers. We must be getting old.
