Plumes...

[FONT=.SF UI Display][FONT=.SFUIDisplay-Semibold]A rather cold set of Santa Anas has crashed into us again, rattling and squeaking all night for the past several nights. That damn wind...
[/FONT][/FONT]

[FONT=.SF UI Display][FONT=.SFUIDisplay-Semibold]I duct taped the outside, rolling, folding metal wing-table sided bar-b-que ( grill) sides down to the body, and the doors shut, but there is one other two-note squeaker out there I can't identify.

She... wears earplugs; I had to go downstairs onto the couch. [/FONT][/FONT]

That squeaker- It could be the metal downspout to the under-roof-edge metal gutter (or is that shit plastic? -I can't remember) , or it could be the brace under my five hundred-year-old native oak that a-couple-years ago decided to separate at the crotch of its wishbone two-trunk mass by way of (splitting at) a gaping fissure- (!).

[FONT=.SF UI Display][FONT=.SFUIDisplay-Semibold] I did place a wooden post underneath the one half supporting one whole, heavy cantilever,-side, and steel cabled the two trunks with supposed 6,000 lb, suspect CHi-Com made, Harbor Freight-bought, eh, cable, but that wind comes at things from multi-directions ( following the laws of nature) and that tree just might decide to twist-off uncleanly, taking out my power lines and part of my balcony. [/FONT][/FONT]
[FONT=.SF UI Display][FONT=.SFUIDisplay-Semibold]Nature is not clean or cleanly. Fucker...[/FONT][/FONT]
[FONT=.SF UI Display]
[/FONT]
[FONT=.SF UI Display][FONT=.SFUIDisplay-Semibold]And, speaking of Nature, or perhaps man... there are several smoke plumes going, ( in the surrounding mountains), brush fires either started by the winds yanking on power lines thereby creating sparks, or by firebugs, or by firemen ( and/or women for chrissakes...how about the 'its'?! can't forget the its...) looking for overtime to pay for all those Christmas goodies. Wifes or stay-at-home 'others' can be quite 'expectacious' ( heh). Please... It's been done. [/FONT][/FONT]

[FONT=.SF UI Display][FONT=.SFUIDisplay-Semibold]On more important news, we've been watching Aussie tv, one show in particular ( and one show only) called Rake, and enjoying it.

Oh, he ( Rake; Cleaver) is a little too P.C. at times, always kissing-ass, and biting his lip, but while I was trying to figure out how many seasons there are or will be, part of what I read (about the show) was that the writers were attempting, or more like practicing a form of Nazi-ism.

That's right, by promoting their own National ( read: WHITEwestern-cultural )ways of speaking, by purposefully writing in terms like 'G-day' ( well, maybe not that one) or 'What the dickens?' ( that one: yes for sure) they are attacking the world collective, 'fascist-ing' or what ever you want to call it the global pacifist, ( or is it illuminati?) fuck me in the ass- bend all of us over If you'd like, eat our children too, were evil white/westerner people and deserve it, continuous mess, sorry: conscious- ness - that has in-vaded , excuse me, entered-their ( racist, obviously) collective consciousness' by way of the Internet (specifically they mention YouTube) or other world outlets, wiping out their unique Aussie way of speaking. [/FONT][/FONT]

We do have the subtitle option on... just to practice our reading mind you. [/FONT][/FONT]

[FONT=.SF UI Display]
[/FONT]
[FONT=.SF UI Display][FONT=.SFUIDisplay-Semibold]...And a little more on those plumes of smoke that tend to come with the winds... What is there to say? If you live near the edges you fear them. [/FONT][/FONT]
[FONT=.SF UI Display]
[/FONT]
[FONT=.SF UI Display][FONT=.SFUIDisplay-Semibold]I do, and I do. We have had thee-times, fires come right at us , at least one time with no warning or instruction from the 'authorities ', in which case ( that case), the fire came down the brushy mountainside, smoke, straight at us ( winds) whereupon it died when it got the man-watered 'green-belt' that is the edge of settlement. [/FONT][/FONT]
[FONT=.SF UI Display]
[/FONT]
[FONT=.SF UI Display][FONT=.SFUIDisplay-Semibold]I could go on and on about that, and how lighting a log cannot be achieve with just a match; the building up of levels/thicknesses of kindling to catch thicker things, as compared to dry grass and a house, blah, blah-blah, b'blah... but never mind. [/FONT][/FONT]
[FONT=.SF UI Display]
[/FONT]
[FONT=.SF UI Display][FONT=.SFUIDisplay-Semibold]Except for inhaling the crap ( as is everyone), we're fine. Other unfortunates are not, and I'm sorry for it. Unless they're over insured ( which is doubtful) it must really effing suck. [/FONT][/FONT]

I was just talking, with my partner, about the new fires in California. I said those insured should kiss the asses of those like us who have few natural disasters, yet pay higher property insurance than justified (well documented fact), so other parts of the country can afford it. (Same idea as in ObamaCare that many young and healthy whined about having) It's called "all shoulders to the wheel", not everyone for themselves.
 
How does that work? Are we talking private insurance? Ca has its own state-backed insurance that the private companies refer you to if you're in one of the zones, and it costs more than private.

And by the way, all you healthcare users should be kissing my ass then, because I nevahh use my health care. Oh dear... All that resentment. I think sas, that after the revolution, we're going to have to send you for a little vacation , a 're-education' at one our camps. Nothing like some brisk weather, hard sleeping cots, and exercise; cutting trees, brush, a little construction maybe, to clear the mind and get your thinking right. You see, what we have have here, is a failure to communisticate...
