Idle Thoughts Hitting the Windshield

Idle Thoughts Hitting the Windshield? Kinda bugs me...

Apex, NC 1-03-10

Summertime. It is 90 and you are doing 70. It is evening. And you are collecting a multitude of flying objects in your line of vision. You can’t stop this unique collection. It keeps building.

Just like Idle Thoughts…

Welcome to 2010ish.

In China, it soon will be the Year of the Tiger. In the US, that was last year.

Unemployment is still out of control in this country. Watch for a trade war with China and India. The employment went to these fast growing countries.

The car business is BOOMING in both of those countries. Not here…

As cold as it is in early January, I credit climate change. My wallet still is frozen.

We are truly a divided country. Some people think 2010 is the new decade; others insist it is not until 2011. I guess we better watch the decadence.

Decadence? How about the major theme from 2009? Philanderer.

Philanderer... Yep, there were plenty.

The larger theme central to the last decade? Greed. Greed created issues in a multitude of economic arenas. Oil and Banking are just two. You can think of several.

Smokers are freezing their buns off with the new law. I thought this was North Carolina? Tobacco Road is still a very cool song.

Politicians will get theirs in 2010. The people will speak in the mid-terms and bring common sense back to both parties. Whatever goes around will come around. Watch for some famous faces being escorted to the shed.

Although some mysteries still exist for me, like why didn’t Miss Landers have a first name and what did Ward really do, I enjoyed my four days in November with Jerry Mathers. From the time I picked him up at RDU until I dropped him back off, I found Jerry to be genuine, appreciate, honest, and caring. It was the highlight of my Peak City Film Festival experience. Meeting a celebrity without ego problems is a very rare thing. And to chat, have lunch and dinner with the Beav, and just generally enjoy his company was a prime highlight of my decade. Thank you Jerry!!

I wish all of you a prosperous and wonderful 2010. Time is your best friend in a Recession, and we are slowly getting out of the funk we have been in. Remember local is everything.

Now, I wonder what greedy individual will want the credit for ending the recession.

Wait... I can see him now.

Please make critical thinking and common sense your New Year’s Resolutions. We don’t do enough of it.

Your focus this New Year should include helping others get better… Best wishes!
