I know it is a little later than normal for my rant here in my blog but I have been fighting with myself over a decision whether or not to discuss the current political landscape or just be mad as hell and forget about disturbing others with my rantings. The old saying about what we Americans don't talk about came up during my argument with myself. "Don't talk about religion, politics or money". This statement certainly applies to work, dinner and social outings but what about blogs? The conservative side of me won and I won't get up and bounce up and down on my soap box over politics today.
On a less depressing issue the Washington State Huskies won their fourth straight football game last night in a 31 - 13 victory over the Arizona Wildcats at Husky stadium. I know, I said yesterday they were in Arizona. My bad. Washington moved up one spot in the AP poll from 16 to 15. This is the first time since 2001 that the Husky nation has seen a 4 - 0 start. Next week will be very interesting as the Dawgs will take on Stanford who beat Washington State last night.
Yesterday was ugly in the Pacific Northwest. Rain fell from buckets in the sky forcing most people to stay indoors. The temperature was cool and there was some strong wind gusts. I found the indoors to be very comforting and I basically laid low all day.
Obviously Fall has arrived as we witnessed yesterday but there are other signs as well. This plant was totally green and the grass surrounding it was parched, brown and dormant last month. So there are signs of life and death that come with Fall.
It is back to work tomorrow. I'll be so busy that I won't worry about anything but work.
