Bunch of Holiday Stuff

Ugly Christmas Sweater Week

I love me a good Ugly Sweater. Of course, ugly is in the eye of the beholder. What better than wear a loud sweater to a holiday party? Talk about ice -breaker! All the better if it has lights.

If you don’t want to pay a lot for your creation, go to stores after Christmas – I advise December 26, and buy a sweater half-off for next year. Who knows you may get something for a New Year’s party! I saw a bunch of sweaters at Walmart, Smith’s - of all places, and Target. Of course you can get a really fun sweater online. Walmart is starting to reduce ugly sweaters now!


As predicted, Amazon deliveries INSIDE your house can be hacked. So thieves can get in and the resident AND delivery person can be at all kinds of risk. But also, the house alarm has to be turned off for the delivery or it doesn’t work. Bah Humbug!!!!!!

Nate Gentry

New Mexico Legislator Nate Gentry, may have lost his mind. To combat one of the worst graduation rates in the country, he is proposing in the next 30 day session in January, that students can not graduate from high school unless they have a verified college or trade school lined up. WHAT!!!????? He has a second bill that says teachers in every school must text parents 2 days ahead of any test to tell parents. So parents will make sure kids stuff and not be truant. So basically, he wants teachers that don’t have time enough, to spend more time texting. Forget the fact all teachers and all parents don’t text. Someone please help Nate. The intention may be good but what he is proposing is terrible.
