  • MUCH less expensive and MUCH better

    It is Friday and Fridays are for fun. It has been a scary week especially for those of us who pay  our own health insurance and instead of belonging to a group that pays less we get to pay extra. The insurance companies and pharmaceutical companies call all the shots (no pun intended) and buy the laws. My health insurance is obscenely expensive and because it is a crappy bronze plan I pay extra for health care but even that is better than being uninsured.

    I hope the new president honors his tweets. If you can not trust a billionaire who can you trust?



  • Friday fun
  • The year of the lie


    It is Friday and Fridays are for fun. I won’t have any trouble saying goodbye to 2016. It wasn’t all bad but I will always remember it as the year of the lie and some of the bad things that happened were so bad that it will be hard to remember the good when I look back.


    I want to help make 2017 a year of truth which is going to be difficult in a post literate society but if we all try we can see the truth even if it doesn’t support our ideology.

    For me this is the last work day of the year but I’ll be back in 2017. Happy New Year!

  • December photos

    Union Depot

    It is Friday and Fridays are for fun. I have taken a few photographs this holiday season and I thought I would share a couple for fun and as a reminder that there are things to do and places to go in downtown St. Paul during the holidays.

    Looking West along 4th Street – Lower town

    It is nice to see the “1” all lit up on the first bank building again. There is a European type outdoor market at the Union Depot and of course train rides on the North Pole Express.

    These photos are supposed to have snow in them. The snow is on it’s way.

  • Making Friday great again


    It is Friday and Fridays are for fun. I would like to make Friday great again and I can believe me. I can make it terrific. It will be amazing and I am not saying that in a braggadocios way. I know how to win and when I do Friday will be fantastic, believe me.

    I’ll start by building a wall in-between Friday and Monday. I’ll build a wall and I’ll get Monday to pay for it.
