When I went off to bed at 9:30 PM yesterday I told my wonderful wife that I didn’t know if I could sleep because I was so hungry. When I woke up at 1:45 AM to go to the bathroom I was unable to go back to sleep because I was so hungry. Of course, I cannot go back to sleep after eating because of my GERD, which creates awful reflux if I try to sleep on a full stomach. I wish I did not have this condition.
David Banner (not his real name) sent me the listing to this house that, according to the copy, has “garage room for 100 cars.” If my wonderful wife and I had been the only winner of the Mega Millions drawing yesterday (nobody won the big prize), we would have netted about $55 million after taxes. The asking price for this house that has been on the market almost seven months is $6.3 million. OF COURSE, I wish we had won the lottery so we would be able to afford this house and buy 10-20 cars to partially fill the garage space. Here is a picture from the listing:
Looks like one of each of the 1953 General Motors Motorama cars to me. How about this for garage space?
Once again from the movie Diner, “If you don’t have dreams, you have nightmares.” No, I do not expect to win the lottery and wind up with some eight- or nine-figure sum of money. However, as I tell my wonderful wife all the time, “Wouldn’t that be something?”
I wish so many people were not so ignorant. Look at these graphs comparing the six states with the highest vaccination rates and their current rate of virus hospitalizations to the rates for the six states with the lowest vaccination rates.
The vaccines work, no matter what the ignoramuses think. Yes, we’re not supposed to insult or browbeat them because that won’t make them want to get vaccinated. Welcome to the Coddling States of America, the place where schools can’t fail kids for giving the wrong answers. People are needlessly being hospitalized and dying because they stubbornly refused to get vaccinated.
The “Delta Wave” could, of course, turn out to be a cloud with a silver lining. Here is something that Brian Sullivan of CNBC tweeted yesterday: “Louisiana pharma distributor contact tells me that vaccine orders have doubled in last two days and nearly tripled from last week. Expect big jump in vaccination rate over next few days…”
If somewhere down the road CDC guidance is that someone like me should get a booster shot, I will gladly do it. As regular readers know, I am hardly a political liberal, but this issue is not political.
Still can’t stop thinking about the house with the 100-car garage…
