The joys of high tech! You can start your Tesla with a key fob or your cell phone. What happens if your key fob battery is dead and you are somewhere your cell phone doesn’t get service? Call a tow truck!

Seems I’m in a new Congressional District.
Sister Kink, aka Lori Saine, is now running for Congress. Put Sister Kink in my blog Search and you will find several posts about her. Talking with Sisty, she remarked how pistol packing Lauren Boebert from Congressional District 3 and Lori would be quite a combination in D.C. Maybe give “The Squad” some competition?
To date, there are at least twelve candidates in the primary.
For those interested, a fairly accurate summation can be found here.
Just to be crystal clear, Sisty doesn’t, and never has, made one dime for her work with the organization. It is her passion.
I’m not much interested in that mess other than not wanting to see any of our service members mixed in with the shitty leadership we now have.
Then there is the possibility of Russian, and/or Chinese cyber attacks on our infrastructure. The shadow operatives from Obama’s shadow government aren’t any more competent than they were when he was President. His third term is even more of a disaster than his first two terms.
Locally our elected official are appalled and supporting sanctions. Emperor Polis has directed the state pension fund withdraw any money from Russian banks. Wow! What a safe place to put employee’s life savings.
Two Wire Winter
Riding Shotgun, a YouTuber, recently had a trip across Rabbit Ears Pass into Steamboat Springs. The lack of snow is worrisome. The Yampa, along with the White River (Meeker) is a major tributary of the Colorado River. Don’t expect Lake Powell and Lake Mead to improve much this year. The snow in the Southern Rockies has been decent which will help the Arkansas and Rio Grande basins. The Colorado will be helped by the Gunnison and the Green out of Wyoming. Unless we have a huge March, next summer could be worse than last year.
A reprint of a “scientific” paper has many references to “climate change” and “global warming”. Just in case readers aren’t sharp enough to grasp the salient points, the author graciously underlined key words and phrases. Presumptuous?
Certain plants and trees, such as sagebrush and invasive tamarack, soak up water and choke out other vegetation. Native Americans understood this and would deliberately burn sagebrush covered prairies. In one to two seasons the native grasses, which bison preferred, would take over. Springs, stream flow and rivers benefited. As an example in Northeast Colorado is the Arikaree River. Now an intermittent stream, it once had a good flow.
Getting That Fresh Ride
New Banner Hazard
We have a new resident who has installed a dog treat station Banner passes on the way to and from the elevator. Weakling that I am, when we return I toss a treat down the hall. Off leash, he charges after it much to the amusement of some, but not all, neighbors. After retrieving it, he proudly prances around with several snorts. He rarely barks and never tries to take something off a table or counter. I won the dog lottery with him (most of the time).
