We had a totally pleasant Thanksgiving. Every year we meet at Cousin's, the same crowd as usual with the addition of Cousin's Cousin and wife and a friend's daughter, the only young person there. Some of us get together only at this time so have a lot of catching up to do. Conversation is lively but little of it is about politics, because we agree on most issues. It seems that most of us are better off and happier than we were last year, which is a sign the economy is picking up. Everyone who needs to be or wants to be employed has a job.
All of us got a lot of amusement out of this Fail Pie. It tasted very good, however, and I just ate the last of it this a.m.
Cousin gave us a monitor that she did not need after she bought an Apple computer, and Terry hooked it up to my computer. This is fun! Is Chris really looking at my feet? What about the man/machine meld in this screen grab from an ad on MSNBC?
I can look at this archive pic of Jerry Brown and work on my blog at the same time!
On Morning Joe, the panel agreed that Americans are delusional. They cited Ted Cruz, Miley Cyrus, and Rob Ford! Yes, Rob Ford is American, if of the Canadian variety! They felt Ford was amusing, but of course if he were just some ordinary unknown guy, especially an ordinary unknown guy of color, he would be in prison for assault and the use of illegal drugs.
But it's not necessary to go far afield to find people in an advanced state of delusion! We have our share, right here in Hilo! We're all deluded. It's just a matter of degree.
