A Bit Of Housekeeping Bad News. (For Some.)

A few days ago our hosting fees came due.

After some debate and discussion (we’ve been doing this for nine years now,) we decided to keep going.

We re-upped for another two years of hosting that will take us until April of 2021.

Unless something happens, we are still going to be here for the election cycle of 2020.

(We aren’t expecting thank you and “keep going” notes from some local politicians and governments.)

Just thought you’d want to know.

We are trying to think of something profound in the wake of today’s fire at the Notre Dame Cathedral in Paris. We are drawing a blank.

It was not that we are a group of Catholics. We aren’t. It is not that we are architects. We aren’t. It is not that we are Parisians, or even French. We aren’t.

But the glory of the glory of the Notre Dame Cathedral was something that crossed all religious, occupational, and educational lines, as well as any lines on a map. Notre Dame was inspiring and now the French and indeed the world, have to try and figure out what to do next.

There is little doubt in our mind that God cares about a church, and we doubt “Our Lady” does either.

It is always about the people and Notre Dame let everyone in.

Somehow it’s loss following Palm Sunday an Easter is poignant on another level, but for now, we are saddened by the loss of a magnificent building.

The Christmas Extravaganza Starts! “Light of Christmas” – Veggie Tales.

Ever since we started this blog, on the day after Thanksgiving we start what we euphemistically call our “Christmas Extravaganza.” Every day from now through Christmas we’ll post one Christmas song (along with our regular content.)

This year we are starting out with “Light Me Up” from the Veggie Tales and featuring Toby Mac of DC Talk fame.

It’s a catchy little tune and hopefully on this day when people are out and about searching for bargains and far too often encountering angry and frustrated people, we hope that people will “light up” and remember the meaning of Christmas.

PS – If you have a Christmas song that inspires you, reminds you of family or just like, leave a note in the comment section or contact us and we’ll see what we can do about posting it.

PPS – suggestions for Mariah Carey’s “All I Want For Christmas Is You”may result in a ban.

(JUST KIDDING!…….sort of.)

Should Illegal Aliens Get Free Healthcare?

We are working on updating the staffs computer systems so content is going to be light for the next few days.

Do you think it makes sense for illegals who don’t pay into the system to receive the health benefits it provides? PragerU’s Will Witt asked the people.

Happy Pi Day!

Today is March 14th and that means it is Pi Day! (According to Google, this is the 30th year the day has been celebrated as “Pi Day.”)


Celebrate by taking a mathematical constant to lunch.

Sadly, the world renowned physicist Stephen Hawking has passed away at the age of 76.

Somehow it almost seems fitting that Hawking would pass on this day – a day where many people stop to appreciate the hard sciences and scientific constants.

If it is possible to celebrate and be saddened by events, that’s what we are feeling today.

Christmas Christian (W)Rap.

(An annual favorite.)

Although the album Yo Ho Ho! from which all three songs below came from was released in the late 1980’s, we still love these songs.

It’s just fun stuff that you can hum and whistle while out and about.

Cocoa Beach: Raise Taxes, Spend More.

The City of Cocoa Beach Commission will hold a regular meeting tonight at 7:00 PM. You can see the agenda here.

There are items of interest on the agenda such as negotiating with the United States Tennis Association to run the tennis facilities.

What truly caught our eye was this:

Request to ratify a one-year contract between Laborers’ International Union of North America (LIUNA), Public Employee’s Local 6781, and the City of Cocoa Beach from the period of October 1, 2017 – September 30, 2018. Article 19 (Wages) is changed as follows: Effective October 1, 2017, bargaining unit employees shall receive an increase of 2% to their base wages, up to the maximum of their wage ranges. Any portion of the 2% increase above the maximum of their wage ranges will be paid as a lump sum not added to the base wages. Wage minimums and maximums shall be 1% above those reflected in Exhibit A of the wage article. The City reserves the right to set the initial wage for new hires above the minimums established in Exhibit A. This is a budgeted item.

This item is on the consent agenda, which means it won’t even be discussed as a separate item.

The problem, as we see it, is two fold:
