Well, they say the government has been shut down! Does that mean it no longer exists? Does it mean I no longer have to obey its laws? That would be nice!

I will be incommunicado for a few days after today. Library will close for both Christmas and Christmas Eve (Those librarians love to take every holiday off they can get away with!). And tomorrow I will be celebrating my birthday: the big 7 0 !

After dropping precipitously 600 points or so during the day, the DOW has closed up 260 points to continue the Santa Claus rally! All's well that ends well, the Bard said. I was waiting for Trump to pardon Martha Stewart. She starred on a spinoff of his Apprentice show. But now I have heard she voted for Hillary, so perhaps not!

A pleasant day here in Gresham for December. Now 46F as of 2 PM. Wind only 2 mph out of the east. Some clouds, but not raining. Humidity 73%.

The usual crowed here at the library.

Take care of yourself, Bert. There is no excuse for falling, because there is no ice down there! So far we have been lucky, and there has been no ice or snow here either.

Now 41F here in Gresham as of 4:30 PM. Sky clear. Wind northeast at 4 mph.. Humidity 75%.

Ducks won the Red Box Bowl in San Francisco today in a defensive battle 7 - 6 ! I think Gang Green is back!

Happy New Year everyone!

Now to go buy some beer!
