The Sky Is Falling

Or at least a part of it. I am refering to the spy satellite that the americans are losing. They didn't get much use out of that. Only sent it up about a year or so ago. Now it will be target practice for the navy. But remember, this is not a movie. In real life, you can actually miss. I wonder how many shots they get at it.
Ranting on, the question is why do hey want to shoot it down. Is it because they want to prevent toxic fuel from falling to earth as they say. Or is there something on it that they don't want anyone to see. Then again it could be a practice run for the missile defence system. So it would be just a drone.
My son has given me another possibility. It could be a meteor. They don't want to tell us because of people freaking out. That would be something you might have to take more that one shot at. They also want the space shuttle down before they do this. Shooting a big rock would cause a lot of debris.

So we may find out the truth or we may not.

Which Flag
They sure have a lot of trouble with people sneaking across the border at Mexico. Sound like an easy spot for a terrorist to come across. And there is only so much you can do. Only a matter of time before North America is one country. I'm sure that is already in the planning. It started with free trade. Look at Europe. They are well on the way.

Who Would Have Guessed
I was thinking the other day about when I was in the air force in Germany. Never in my wildest dreams would I have thought about NATO having a meeting in Lithuania. They were all the sworn enemy. And MacDonalds in Russia and China. They would have carted me away.
You never know how things are going to turn out.

So onward we go thru winter. On tuesday we had a good size snowstorm and in the evening and overnight we had a major rainstorm. High winds etc. So by morning, the foot of snow we had was all gone. If we didn't have all these rainstorms, we would have a lot of snow. In a couple more months, I will be thinking of grass cutting.
This year's project will be new doors. Front, back and patio. First I will have to get the lowdown. So I will be going to the place where I bought the windows and get all my info. May not buy it there because I want to buy with installation included.
Had to go for a Cat Scan yesterday. Not that there is a problem. At least I don't think so. Had one a couple of years ago and they saw something they like to wonder about. Now that I am in the medical syatem clutches, they will never let me go. But I guess that is a good thing. I'm glad we have universal health care. That's one reason I would not want to live in the U.S. But it is a nice place to visit. Would love to spend my winters in Sedona.
