Life right now involves a lot of airline miles between Colorado and the Great Land as we prepare to move the majority of our crap up in March and April. Boy howdy!
Here’s the thing: I have accumulated enough award miles that, if only United Airlines offered service to Jupiter, I could probably fly there on points. Mrs. Animal is a ways behind, but she has plenty of award miles as well. At some point Mrs. Animal and I will have to figure out what to do with all those miles; fortunately, once the Kung Flu panic dies down (assuming it ever does) we have plenty of bucket-wish destinations in mind: New Zealand, Austria, Scotland, Ireland, and we always enjoy visiting Japan.
But we’ll have to see what happens with the dreaded Kung Flu over the next few months, I guess. Now then…
On To the Links!
Pelosi and Schumer propose to eliminate a few million more jobs. What colossal horse’s asses they both are.
Turns out corvids (jays, crows, magpies and ravens) may be a lot smarter than we thought. Probably smarter than Pelosi and Schumer.
In the Kung Flu news: Vaccinated people don’t need to quarantine (no shit) according to the CDC, and broad distribution of vaccines should be in the works by April.
“Total, total shit show,” Joni Ernst says when I asked about her reaction to this, calling it “a tool of revenge” against Trump. Adds: “if they want to drag this out, we’ll drag it out. They won’t get their noms, they won’t get anything.”

Another bumper crop of idiocy this week!
Funny how we just keep seeing some of these same names over and over again.
1964. I was three years old when the MaCoys released Hang On Sloopy, but it was a popular enough song that it was still getting plenty of play on rock&roll radio stations when I was in high school in the Seventies. What’s not well known is that the MaCoys released a music video for this song, featuring some… interesting pre-disco dance moves by a lovely (and braless) young lady. So, enjoy!
