Il Vicino vs Global warming/Ice Age
This evening (end of this week) My wife and I stopped in again at our favorite 'Il Vicino', "Bubba", (all of the kids love Bubba, he gives them a piece of dough to play with and even bakes it for them.) "Bubba" was in his usual fine form, spinning the pizzas and getting great 'Air' He informed me that the very big 'Lion' oven with the fascinating wood fire, indeed had a name. "CHEWY", of course everyone knows 'Chewbaca'. I never actually saw that critter chew any tobacco during flying the 'Millenium Falcon' (was he a Leutenant Col.?)
Last Saturday evening at 'Il Vicino', conversation with the Florida Bro-inlaw and his wife was a nice respite. The Bro-inlaw and myself actually discussed politics. No angry words or looks. The wives actually discussed things they are concerned with. No harsh words by either party, Nice evening.
Christmas shopping this year is very easy with no massive crowds, just a nice smooth steady orderly flow. We are anxiously looking forward to the rare fly-in of the Wisconsin family, (I hope all of the imams boycot Christmas flying) Our youngest son, his wife and two daughters, one only a few months old. It has been many years since they have been here for Christmas. Our weather seems like Wisconsin weather today. Temperature in the teens and some snow to get us in the mood for Christmas.
Has anyone read the recent intensive Russian Scientific study (now the 'Russians' should know a little about snow) predicting the 'beginning' of another 'Ice Age' in about 60 years. Now that will sure put a dent in 'Russias' (true) 'Ice breaker' tours of the North Pole. The snow keeps falling on the continent of Antarctica in record amounts, building thicker glaciers that will eventually (10's of thousands of yrs plus?) march to the sea which is getting colder and more storm tossed. Cold spells increasing around the globe... Now just who are we to blame about all that? We just can't seem to control the weather no matter who gets elected.
According to my scientific cousin in California it's that, "Thousands of years old problem", of "too hot/too cold". The newest political fight over the 'Office Thermostat'..."ICE AGE/GLOBAL WARMING"...Make up your mind and just set the world at a temperature we all like. Now that wasn't so hard was it?
If anyone wants to take the latest film on global warming as gospel, you might desire to also check the countless 'Wikipedia' (Link on right sidebar) The "Maunder Minimum" sunspot study is interesting. (see "sunspot activity" during the last 'Little Ice Age') I personally found interesting, Grisda.org/origins/10051.htm linked websites on 'The Little Ice Age' (1450-1850). Also the extremely warm (much warmer than now) world temperatures around the year 1100 (ref. Grisda)("Tkachuck"?, an Eskimo should know,) (Grapes and wine production in England?..Really?) If you really want to look back, 'Wikipedia' the latest "Big Ice Age" when the 'Great Lakes' were plowed out by the "Glaciers" (no wheat from Canada?). Now wouldn't that cause a lot of 'Letters to the Editor', CNN would be 'Outraged' as the Associated Press (AP) demanded an 'investigation' (from an inside undisclosed source of course). "The Attorneys would be salivating in their Rolls Royces". Obviously Mr Gore never uses the same sites that I do in the wonderful tool he invented. (the internet) When President (2008) Bill Richardson gets me a Government job, working with the NM film industry, Al and I will discuss these things.
I just love the film industry I work in. "Creating the Illusion of fact" from a series of scenes set up with an "Agenda' in mind from the very start"... "ROLLING, ROLLING",..... "BACKGROUND, ACTION!"
