TWW is The Warped Woodturner who is a local artist living in a suburb of Springbrook, WI (pop 87). His mission is to use a wood lathe to make interesting but mostly useless objects from locally-sequestered carbon for tourists to bring back to the city to give to people they had to buy something for but don't like that well. His target market is the senior citizens since their vision is not as good as it used to be so cannot see the defects as well.

If you are lost roll down the windows and you will know if you are in Wisconsin in winter

But the cheese bits cause an odor – not that that’s a bad thing, Polk County Highway worker Emil Norby told the New York-based magazine.“I don’t really mind it,” he said. “Our roads smell like Wisconsin!”

Ringless in Rochester

On the way home from the holidays in Rochester Mrs. TWW said something about her fingers had swelled up so she could not take her wedding ring off.  TWW thought this meant she was trying to figure out a way to dump him and immediately checked to see if he had his ring on. He only wears it in public to prevent women from hitting on him (in his mind at least). His ring was missing. He thought it must be at the hotel so stopped in Turtle Lake to call the hotel. They weren't cleaning the rooms due to the holiday so he had to wait until Monday.  The hotel people checked and could not find the ring but it could have been in the wash and they were going to check there later.  Interestingly enough the ring was in the wash but not in Rochester. The home health person who helps with the wash found the ring inside a napkin in the pocket of the pants TWW wore for Christmas Eve. How it got there is a mystery but at least it gave TWW something to put on this blog to keep it going.  

Once again BO divides the people?

"The Obama administration filed a federal hate-crimes charge Thursday against a man whom authorities accused of using the “knockout game” to target a black man, videotaping it, and then bragging about the assault to strangers.
The charge marks the first time the administration has taken action on a “knockout” case after the game became an Internet and media phenomenon. It chose a case in which the person accused is white, even though most other cases reported in the news have involved black assailants.......
In this case, the man accused is 27-year-old Conrad Alvin Barrett, who the Justice Department says attacked a 79-year-old black man in Fulshear, Texas, just west of Houston. Justice Department officials said they brought the case to make a point about hate crimes."

The point appears to be they only prosecute white people for hate crimes???

Snowshoe Trail Fees Waived Due to Conditions

To help save the deer Garbin Moraine management has waived snow shoe fees for the remainder of the winter or at least until August 2014.  This is to encourage people to help pack down the snow so the dear deer can walk about better and survive so they can be shot next year.

Solar garage heater helps prevent climate change

Note professional installation job.

It took a long time to find something to turn the fan on when the box outside warms up enough. 

Now all the solar heater needs is sunshine.

Bat out; tree in

Bat was flying around the bedroom on Tuesday night and Mrs. TWW told him he could not use the shotgun so had to sweep the cute little sentient creature out into the snow. The tree is finally not a Charlie Brown tree so Mrs TWW will be happy.

new item - not one of the censored ones

Remember back after the Sandy Hook tragedy how the evil Wayne Pierre did not play the game people wanted and said something about the only thing stopping a bad person with a gun was a good person with a gun?  Read on about the recent school shooting stopped by a good guy with a gun:

"But as reported in the Washington Times, the attacker's mission was stopped short by the quick response of an armed deputy sheriff who was working as a resource officer at the school.  Upon learning of the threat, the deputy ran from the cafeteria to the library, yelling for people to get down and identifying himself as a deputy sheriff.  The horrific incident lasted only a total of 80 seconds and ended with the shooter turning his gun on himself in the library as the deputy was closing in on him.  

"We know for a fact that the shooter knew that the deputy was in the immediate area and, while the deputy was containing the shooter, the shooter took his own life," Sheriff Robinson said.  Robinson said the deputy's response was "a critical element to the shooter's decision" to kill himself.  "

Advice for parents of the day

This advice was found floating around the 'Net:

"An elderly man in Oklahoma calls his son in New York and says, "I hate to ruin your day son, but I have to tell you that your mother and I are getting a divorce...; 48 years of marriage... and that much misery is enough!"

"Dad, what are you talking about?" the son yells. "We can't stand the sight of each other any longer," the old dad explained. "We're sick of each other, and I'm sick of talking about this, so you call your sister in Hong Kong and tell her!"

Frantic, the son calls his sister, who explodes on the phone. "Like heck they're getting divorced," she shouts, "I'll take care of this." She calls her elderly father immediately, and screams at him, "You are not getting divorced. Don't do a single thing until I get there. I'm calling my brother back, and we'll both be there tomorrow. Until then, don't do a thing, you hear me?" she yelled as she hung up the phone.

The old man hangs up his phone and turns to his wife. "Okay", he says, "it's all set. They're both coming for Christmas and paying their own air-fare."

Quote of the day

“All other things being equal, adding more greenhouse gases to the atmosphere will have a warming effect on the planet,” Judith Curry, a climatologist at the Georgia Institute of Technologytold the Los Angeles Times. “However, all things are never equal, and what we are seeing is natural climate variability dominating over human impact.”

Astronaut in a tree on Garbin Moraine

Mrs. TWW kept saying there was an astronaut  stuck in a tree north of the house but TWW wrote it off as impossible until last night when he ran down to get the mail and saw a UFO.  Actually it must have been the international space station going over or else something else pretty big.  This morning he went out to find the astronaut in the tree and took this picture.  The people in the international space station must have been looking for one of their buddies who fell out.  Not sure if we should call the sheriff or not. They might think we are wacky.  TWW has been looking at conspiracy web sites to find out if anyone fell out of a space station but no luck so far.

More proof of climate change

When the TWWs moved to Garbin Moraine in 2003 December was dry and balmy. Now it is cold with snow.  The climate has changed.

More lies about how it hasn't: "The 2013 hurricane season just ended as one of the five quietest years since 1960. But don’t expect anyone who pointed to last year’s hurricanes as “proof” of the need to act against global warming to apologize; the warmists don’t work that way.
Warmist claims of a severe increase in hurricane activity go back to 2005 and Hurricane Katrina. The cover of Al Gore’s 2009 book, “Our Choice: A Plan to Solve the Climate Crisis,” even features a satellite image of the globe with four major hurricanes superimposed.
Yet the evidence to the contrary was there all along. "

It doesn't exist but there is money to be made from stopping it?

Good news: global cooling will not happen this time

"Some researchers speculate this could be the start of a prolonged period of weak solar activity.
The last time that happened, during the so-called "Maunder Minimum" between 1650 and 1715, almost no sunspots were observed. During the same period, temperatures dropped sharply on Earth, sparking what is called the "Little Ice Age" in Europe and North America.
As the sunspot numbers continue to stay low, it's possible the Earth's climate is being affected again.
But thanks to global warming, we're unlikely to see another ice age. "Things have not started to cooling, they just have not risen as quickly," Biesecker said."

Sunday is BIG game day

Here is something to remember when you see a group of guys trying to know down the guy with the ball then celebrating afterwards.

Please remember if you find yourself profiling or complain about Obamacare or like Ted Cruz you are showing signs of racism.

A taste of common sense

see this link

TWW loves Obamacare....I mean Medicare

Out of a sense of patriotism TWW tried again to access The first time he tried  two weeks ago the system was down then he tried again and the system would not let him register even though he had entered truthful information (and NSA knows it).  Today they had fixed the system so he could look at available plans.  Below is what he found. Success!!! well not if you factor in the only company selling on the market where he lives charges him $0 per month for his Medicare HMO (the one Obama wants to punish since it is subsidized) with similar deductibles to the ones charging $300 or more per month).   End of trying to be patriotic.  Well maybe not.  The next step is to attempt to convince Mrs. TWW to let him take the ad to heart below and start looking for disease-free young chicks who like grandpas on the prowl with their Obamacare cards in their purses.
