Good evening friends. What a Monday this has been. Monday is usually the start of weekday crazy: re-stock fridge and pantry, school, meetings, homework, dance class and sometimes catechism.
Now that the house is silent and the kiddos are sleeping peacefully, I am satisfying my addition to Cheez-Itz and spicy rum Eggnog. Also, I keep thinking about an article I read this morning in the New York Times. The article discussed the vehement response News Journal reporters and editors are receiving due to a gun owner address list/map it published.
So, before I adjourn, I wanted to pick your brain. Was the News Journal simply reporting information its readers needed to know; or did it overstep its bounds? Also, is it ethical for the reporter, editors and publisher to become the story?
For easy reference, here is a link to the article.
After Pinpointing Gun Owners Journal News Is a Target
I was planning to share my opinion. But, I am more interested in reading your thoughts. Also, my eggnog needs a refresh and I have a date with my DVR.
Next week is it folks. The onslaught of holiday fun amps up in a big way. Feasting on turkey at Thanksgiving dinner, holiday parades and tree-lighting ceremonies, parties, family time, Black Friday and Cyber Monday are all advancing toward me at a lightening-speed pace. But, that’s not all. Issa and Riff each have holiday-themed activities and projecting coming up at school. This is all good. It’s what I — and many others call — organized chaos.
In preparation for weeks of indulging, gift, giving, baking, decorating and partying I went for my first spinning class, this morning. Exercise is a regular segment to my daily routine. But, I admit to being a bit lazy through most of this fall. This class is just what my fitness program needed: a challenge.
Let me tell you. A spinning class is not biking the Macomb Orchard Trail or Stony Creek Metro Park. It’s biking, cardio, strength and interval training all mixed up. For weeks, I searched for something to keep me motivated to work out regularly. This class is it. I’ll be back each week for the entire winter.

This weekend, I read this nugget on Yahoo.com about expanded tourist opportunities in Colorado and Washington State now that recreational marijuana usage is legal in those states. Toking on the ambiguity this legislation presents got me thinking of opportunities for White Castle and Taco Bell to open more franchises in these said states. Maybe this impending legislation was the motivator behind Taco Bell’s introduction of its Doritos taco. Cheech and Chong could revisit their glory days with a documentary featuring a road trip to Colorado and Washington State. What do you think?
