Report from Louisiana: Linky Love

By: Pat Austin

SHREVE­PORT – I’m not usu­ally one for omens and so I’m hope­ful that the fact that my fur­nace went out today, on New Year’s Day, is not a sign of things to come. We knew it was get­ting tired and about to go out but we hoped to get through the sea­son with it.

And now, in the begin­ning of what is pre­dicted to be below-​freezing tem­per­a­tures all week, and frigid wind chill tem­per­a­tures, I sit with no heat.

We made a dash to Wal­Mart and bought some elec­tric heaters and have a call into the fur­nace guy, but I don’t expect I will hear from him today.

I hope it’s not a sign of how my year will go. Surely not. Right? Life is what you make it. I shall be positive.

And cold.

In the mid­dle of this drama I have not prop­erly pre­pared a good post for you today so I do want to at least point you to a cou­ple of note­wor­thy posts this afternoon:

First, at The Other McCain, be sure to read the ter­ri­ble report of a SWAT­ting inci­dent that hap­pened in Kansas. Absolutely tragic.

Gate­way Pun­dit has a post on the Iran­ian protests you should read. Remem­ber Neda?

Be sure to read Pro­fes­sor Jacobson’s post at Legal Insur­rec­tion about Ahed Tamimi; it is a bizarre story of an anti-​Israli Palen­s­tin­ian teenager manip­u­lated by her par­ents to do vio­lent acts.

And finally, Adri­enne has a run-​down of Trump’s accom­plish­ments which might come in handy.

As for me, I’m going to pile on some cloth­ing lay­ers, make a hot toddy, find some blan­kets, and crank up those elec­tric heaters until my fur­nace guy shows up.

Stay warm, my friends, and Happy New Year.

SHREVEPORT – I’m not usually one for omens and so I’m hopeful that the fact that my furnace went out today, on New Year’s Day, is not a sign of things to come.  We knew it was getting tired and about to go out but we hoped to get through the season with it.

And now, in the beginning of what is predicted to be below-freezing temperatures all week, and frigid wind chill temperatures, I sit with no heat.

We made a dash to WalMart and bought some electric heaters and have a call into the furnace guy, but I don’t expect I will hear from him today.

I hope it’s not a sign of how my year will go.  Surely not.  Right?  Life is what you make it.  I shall be positive.

And cold.

In the middle of this drama I have not properly prepared a good post for you today so I do want to at least point you to a couple of noteworthy posts this afternoon:

First, at The Other McCain, be sure to read the terrible report of a SWATting incident that happened in Kansas.  Absolutely tragic.

Gateway Pundit has a post on the Iranian protests you should read.  Remember Neda?

Be sure to read Professor Jacobson’s post at Legal Insurrection about Ahed Tamimi; it is a bizarre story of an anti-Israli Palenstinian teenager manipulated by her parents to do violent acts.

And finally, Adrienne has a run-down of Trump’s accomplishments which might come in handy.

As for me, I’m going to pile on some clothing layers, make a hot toddy, find some blankets, and crank up those electric heaters until my furnace guy shows up.

Stay warm, my friends, and Happy New Year.
