Need a hand or a handout? Good luck.

St Nicholas

In deep financial turmoil,
Approaching no good end,
What help can Heaven offer?
(Asking for a friend.)
Seen clearly now in hindsight
(Once startled to his senses),
Cascades of foolish choices
end in grievous consequences.
Of evidence that Heaven helps,
He hasn't seen a smidgen.
Blessings with the balance sheet?
Must be bad religion.
Belief that holy charity
could balance mortal flaws
was childish wishful thinking:
Give me money, Santa Claus!
What hope now for the ruined?
What mercy, Oh, Divine?
What prayer would make a difference?
Let's ask the Search Online!
Devoted Roman Catholic
My friend most surely ain't,
But mad with desperation
He searches for a saint.
Turns out there is a saint for that.
The answer turned up quick.
Who intercedes for such a case?
Ironically, St. Nick.

Pi Day Pie
Three point one four one five nine
Square the center-to-perimeter line
Not that anybody cared

"Pi Day is an annual celebration of the mathematical constant π (pi). Pi Day is observed on March 14 (3/14 in the month/day format) since 3, 1, and 4 are the first three significant digits of π. In 2009, the United States House of Representatives supported the designation of Pi Day." —Wikipedia: Pi Day

What part of "Noon" is so hard to comprehend?

I hate hate Daylight Slaving Time.
A semi-annual psychic crime,
Perpetuated by commie slime.
Cows and cats don’t give a dime.
Why should I?

So, a couple of days late with my regular rant about Daylight Saving Time.

I blame Time Change Maladjustment Syndrome (TCMS).

At least this gave me time to swipe some DST related humor from a couple of friends.

I commented:

What? WHAT??


Tell me I read that wrong. Please. ARE ALL THESE PEOPLE INSANNNNNE?

Noon is Noon and DST is Definitely Stupid Trick.

Anyway, at present, it's up to the states, which is bad enough. DST is losing states - hoping ours will join the trend. WTELFH do we want the FEDGOV to be all up in our timekeeping?!?!!?? Which Constitutional clause was that?



The only good thing about it is, if I go to bed at nine now, everybody thinks I'm going to bed at ten. So I don't feel so old. Good night.
