TT#184 - More Super Tuesday

I am very tired from work and redoing my office, so this will be more of a time capsule entry than any real analysis. For more analysis watch this weeks ORLYRADIO show # 101.

At the time of this writing:

Republicans: Kasich predictably took Ohio, Trump won Florida, making Rubio quit the race. Trump is also favored in Illinois, Missouri, and North Carolina. If Ted gets any winnings they will be scraps from the billionaire's plate.  This does leave the GOP with the unenviable task of choosing a... how can I put this to where it is the most historically accurate... Fascist Andy Kaufman impression and a dominionist apocalyptic Eddie Munster son of a preacher man who is perfectly fine watching the world burn if it means the world gets to have Jesus back. I weep for the future. Oh... And there is the voice of reason, Kasich, who can't possibly win, because he may actually be sane. 

Democrats: Clinton has had a strong showing and is predicted to take all the states but not all the delegates. The Democrats like to award partials rather than a winner take all approach that the GOP favors. The tally at midnight could be different as it is being called early based on exit polls, but so far, this is pretty decisive for Clinton based on the earned delegates. She has added approximately 150 delegates to her lead on Sanders. Sanders needs California and New York, and needs them big, to compete with the media and majesty of the lady in waiting. Still a chance, but it is growing slimmer by the day.

There were a whole lot of Cruz and Trump signs in my precinct and around the state as I was driving today. This is why I am having a drink and hoping it was all a bad dream.

So there I was (so many great stories start this way, this is not one of them) renovating my bathroom. I had taken the precautions that had served well on previous days. I was cutting cement wall board for the tile backer in the shower. The diamond blade kicks a lot of fine chemical laden patter into the air and breathing it will knock you down pretty quick. Things went well and the boards were going in, the mortar mix was setting. It was time to take care of family matters, as I started sneezing and noticed my nose running. 

Here in Florida, we have absurd weather. Humid all the time, sunny much of the time, hot most of the time. During winter we tend to have an 88 degree day followed by a 52 degree day. Then, many times, it will spike back to the 80's or 90's. This rapid shifting of the temperatures tends to make me sick. It was chilly Monday morning. Tuesday, the air is back on in the house trying to cope. So I have the sniffles, the days leading up to Christmas. 

My saving grace this year is the vacation time I took to renovate the bathroom and work on the house. I'm scheduled out, so falling asleep after dropping the kids off to daycare was wonderful. Right now, I'm about 10 minutes from going back to sleep for the rest of the night. 

I am on the mend, and will be signing off key holiday favorites by the electric firelight in no time! I hope all of you are having a happy and healthy holiday season.
