I’m feeling much more rested after a much-needed day off. I’m current with replies. Tomorrow is a holy day in the Church of the Ellipsoid Orb, but the meditation between my Broncos and the Chiefs will not be televised locally. So nobody worries, I have a medical day and two prison volunteer days next week, so my blogging will be limited at best.

Personally I use tap water and have two Britta pitchers to filter it.
From NY Times: In the weeks since President Obama’s re-election, Republicans around the country have been wondering how to proceed. Some conservatives in Texas have been asking a far more pointed question: how to secede…
…Sales of bumper stickers reading “Secede” — one for $2, or three for $5 — have increased at TexasSecede.com [InsaniTEA delinked]. In East Texas, a Republican official sent out an e-mail newsletter saying it was time for Texas and Vermont to each “go her own way in peace” and sign a free-trade agreement among the states.
A petition calling for secession that was filed by a Texas man on a White House Web site has received tens of thousands of signatures, and the Obama administration must now issue a response. And Larry Scott Kilgore, a perennial Republican candidate from Arlington, a Dallas suburb, announced that he was running for governor in 2014 and would legally change his name to Larry Secede Kilgore, with Secede in capital letters. As his Web page, secedekilgore.com [Traitor delinked], puts it: “Secession! All other issues can be dealt with later.”
Good riddance, if that is what the majority wants, but only after they reimburse the US for all federal land in and all federal improvements to the state, in addition to returning all federal property from office equipment to military hardware.
