Left my cell phone on the counter of the bagel shop I frequent for lunch. Went back and they were closed. They called my wife and found out where I worked and dropped it off. Glad there are some good people still left out there!
I would have probably taken off the tires, radio and battery to sell cheap. I...I don't really know how phones work.
Down in the basement, I've got a Craftsman lathe. Show it to the children when they misbehave.
I don't believe we get much oil from Venezuela overall. I wonder if that will change.
Since I'm that kind of guy who has to look that up or else I'll never stop thinking about until I do, I looked it up.
Latest annual numbers are from 2011 when you imported 346,989 barrels from Venezuela out of a total of 4,198,806 barrels (~8%). For 2012 there are only monthly numbers and USA imports somewhere between 25-30000 barrels per month from Venezuela out of a total of roughly 300000 barrels.
Damn this weather. Worked from home today so I could have a security system installed in my house. Frantically tried to get a tree cut down in my front yard before it got real bad because I was worried it would fall on my house during this storm (was badly damaged in Sandy, split down the middle, huge cedar tree). Offered the guys $100 more to do it when they called to cancel. They did it, which was real awesome of them because by the time they got to my house the rain and wind really picked up. Power just went out for 30 or so minutes. Sandy flashbacks. Ugh.
Sad story on CNN about the 12-year-old in the Philadelphia area who died after a fight at school with a bully. The photo of him wearing the Flyers shirt on the CNN site was the thing that compelled me to click on the story.
Apparently, Cardinal Ouellette from Quebec is a favourite, though it would be excellent if an African candidate were chosen. I'd like to see someone who will clean out the corruption and abuse, and get the ball rolling on women priests.
