Not responding to e-mail is still a pet peeve. Days now trying to save myself $50 and perhaps gasoline money . . . FWIW, the free flu shots that I cannot get because, silly me, I work, are paid for by New Jersey taxpayers. According to Elizabeth Cubbage RN BSN, Public Health Nursing Supervisor for Cumberland County Health Department the money comes “from the New Jersey Department of Health and Senior Services Vaccine for Children Program for adults and children that qualify for the Vaccine for Children Program and from budgeted monies from the County Health Dept.” . . . I am not certain how towns opt out of Social Security, but apparently you can. What’s the result? Three Texas counties and their retirees are quite pleased, as they should be . . . 18 years in and I’m stuck. I can’t move and I can’t retire. You can’t believe what goes on with public education. It makes my blood boil and there’s absolutely nothing I can do about it. Needless to say, what is best for students does not appear to be the focus . . . Go vote for my entry in Wizbang’s photo caption contest. I think I have the winning entry this week . . . I’m glad I don’t bank with Bank of America. $5 monthly to use a debit card?!? All to recoup poor decisions on the bank’s part . . . can’t embed this, but anyone who likes Quicksilver Messenger Service will appreciate this video dug up from the Winterland in ’73 (probably ’75 or ’71 since Cip wasn’t with QMS in ’73). I had the pleasure of seeing Cipollina in Boston, but this show is hot! . . . While generally I have applauded the job Chris Christie has done as governor of New Jersey, I think it would be a mistake to jump into the presidential race. I don’t think his straight talk will fly nationally. I also don’t think he is the right kind of guy to lead our nation . . . Witnessed some poor sportsmanship the other evening at an event full of “professionals”. It was disappointing . . . I can’t get excited about anything on Facebook these days. Might have something to do with having deleted my account . . .

Also blogged on this date . . .
