Election Day Is Finally Coming!!! Who Wins?

Larry Gaynor for President. Yep, I decided to throw in my name today. I know I will get at least two votes (one from me and one from the BUB). More important, at least I can vote for myself. For the first time in a dozen elections I can’t decide how I can vote for either candidate and be OK with myself. Trump is the worst of the two. My thoughts are that Clinton will win, be convicted while in office, then end up like Nixon and be removed from office and then Kaine will become President much like Ford became President before. At least with Kaine we know so little about him, we can keep the country on even keel until 2020. The next question: Who are going to get then?

Yep today is November 1. Yep Thanksgiving is three weeks away (my favorite holiday). Yep New Year’s Day is two months away. Yep we are getting older as witnessed by myself last weekend. The icing on the cake would have been MSU doing something right this year and coming to play for four quarters. But alas, with the ball on the 2 yard line we couldn’t score with four tries. But at least I got to see Michael, Daniel and Carter would will be turning 5 soon enough.

More bragging rights. Ran the DFP half marathon at 1:41 and came in second place for my age group. 261 overall out of 11,500. Now that the bragging is over, I have this hidden injury oddly enough feels bad when I walk but feels good when I run.

So Daniel had two major announcements in a span of a week. First he is engaged and plans to get married next year, who knows when. And second, he is having a baby April 29. So my third grand kid is coming soon!

Who is going to win the race to Mars? Elon Musk or Jeff Bezos? Forget about Mars, I’m not sure about you but driving from point A to point B has become an ordeal. Is there anyone not on their smartphone anymore?

The $10 beer, the $20 martini and the $100 bottle of wine are becoming all too common at restaurants and bars these days. First it was Bud. Then Bud Lite. Then a few imports like Heineken and Corona. Easy enough. But then came Samuel Adams and the invention of craft beers and suddenly there became 500 beers. Now the craze is IPA’s and pretty soon offering 100 and more brands at  a bar will be no big deal. The bigger question is how do you know what brand to order?

The biggest acquisition wave has hit Wall Street. AT&T buying Time Warner for $85B. But wait, might Apple come to the party? More interesting has been the quietness of the beauty industry.

The hot gift item (for us anyway) is the Ginger Lily Farms Botanicals Therapy Gift Set. Selling like hot cakes and at $10 MRSP, why not!

I don’t know about you but I prefer not to think about Christmas just yet and enjoy the 74 and sunny day today. One thing about Michigan, Fall is one great season.

Happy Tuesday!
