Tomorrow is Election Day Nov 7th 2017

It has been a long campaign season and tomorrow it will end when the polls open at 6am until they close at 8pm and the votes are counted.

2morrow is election day remember vote

 

Met many people in Hartford, Bloomfield and Windsor as well as others from across Connecticut. I enjoy meeting people in the state whether they are in my district or in another persons district where I am helping.

Lot’s of discussions about harmful regulations and the oppressive taxes and what can or should be done to fix our state and our cities and our towns.

Tomorrow is The Day why so many people put in many hours of hard work and I thank each and every one of you that have worked to educate the people about the candidates that are running for office.

Tomorrow is Election Day 2017 and it is the day where we chose the direction of the country, the state and our cities and towns.

The choices are quite distinct to choose to go down the same path towards the destruction of our nation with old socialist / communist policies that have never worked; or we can chose to go in a new direction and turn towards policies and principles that will #MakeWindsorCTGreatAgain .#MakeCTGreatAgain and #MakeAmericaGreatAgain

We will choose to Vote for new Mayors and City-Town Councilors to represent us at the city halls and choosing the direction of our schools with the Board of Ed candidates.

I hope and pray that each of you WILL Get Out To VOTE Row B

Then when you get out in the parking lot that you call those in your household to remind them to get out to vote if they have not voted yet.

CT is in need of a change of direction, we need your help in making that change happen.

If you have a couple of hours to volunteer please give a call; we can use any and all assistance tomorrow.

We need people out on locations through out the state & we have things for people who are housebound to be able to assist as well.

The only way that we can have a #FreshNewStart is if we Vote Out Incumbents that are career politicians who are raising our taxes and wasting our money on special projects for their crony corporate friends…

To get out of this mess we need New People with New Ideas and who know what it is like to live under the oppressive rules and regulations.

#SharingIsCaring so please share this post on all of your social media networks

Special Election on Feb 28th 2017

You may have heard about the Special Elections that will be occurring on Feb 28th in the 2nd State Senate & 32nd State Senate districts due to 2 state senators quitting rather than taking office after the November 8th 2016 elections…

This will be an interesting election to watch because…

The 32nd District will have 3 candidates on the ballot with Dan Lynch an UnAffiliated Candidate being given ballot access after getting the required number of signatures to gain access to the ballot.

Dan will be able to apply for the CEP funding if he is able to raise the funds & number of in district donations required, so that is the goal he is working towards now.

If you live in the 32nd you will have a very tough choice to make because I met both Eric Berthel & Dan Lynch & both are fine men.

I’ve not met the democrat but the mere fact that he’s with the democrat party I could never consider him for office so neither should you

Sadly I will not be on the ballot for the Special Election in the 2nd state senate district…

I have heard rumor but haven’t seen confirmation yet but there may also be a 3 way race with Atty Aaron Romano on the Working Families Party ballot line since he did not get the Republican nomination after switching parties? He announced he had $8,000 raised when he presented at the Windsor RTC meeting prior to the convention on Jan 19th.

Mike McDonald will be on the Republican line and State Rep Doug McCrorey on the Democrat line… Both men are expected to be receiving the CEP Funding Grant for their campaigns once the SEEC finishes with their submitted paperwork.

I will post an update once I get confirmation with links as to who is officially on the ballot in the 2nd senate race.

Normally in Special Elections the Republicans pick up the seats because the democrats do not show up to vote as much during the off election voting sessions…

 

Mohegan Sun to open a Korean location

There will now be an International Flavor for the Mohegan Sun Brand 

This report has the newest expansion being put over in South Korea & it will be a big expansion…

In light of this news the question that comes to my mind is why the push for a new rinky dink casino in CT on non-tribal land?

Are they just looking for a quick boost to finance this project overseas?

How committed are they planning to be to us in CT when they’ve slashed their own profits in CT already by opening a competing casino in the tourism region of the Poconos PA?

There are only so many gamblers in CT, MA, NY & NJ… where there was little competition in the past they now have other casinos but they additionally slashed their own profits (and ours too since CT was supposed to get a cut of the pie) by opening in PA.

Since it’s opening in PA which was drawing away people who wanted to do several things on vacation the profits have gone down here in CT.

Better Tourism  Dept in PA was part of the key for CT’s profits loss because many people decided if they were going to drive for 2 hours they would rather have a destination that offered more than just drinking & gambling & expensive shopping.

PA has it’s tourist destinations clearly marketed & it’s actually warmer longer there earlier in the year.

The question is why are CT’s Historical Sites being destroyed for cookie cutter crap instead of promoting CT’s History Richness?

Winter Storm Faith Feb 2015

What a difference a year makes…

Last year in Jan – Feb 2015 we were hit with more snow than we wanted.

Our CT Tradition of naming winter storms had us all the way up to the letter F.

This year so far in 2016 we only have had 1 named winter storm. For the most part not much snow or even traffic problems for CT because #WinterStormAnna came on a weekend. While those who love to ski are complaining about the lack of snow, personally I do not mind because I don’t care for cold weather. I enjoy Spring, Summer & Fall for their colors & warm sunny days.

Outside of CT the nation was using the name that the weather channel had given her & they called Winter Storm Anna the next name on their storm list which was Jonas.

Anna/Jonas put a hurting on the southern states & then just a slap on the rump for CT. Yes after a snow filled winter of 2015 I’m enjoying this year which has been mostly rain.

With all of the extra taxes that Malloy & his henchmen at the capitol who locked the republicans out of the budget room have heaped upon us, saving on heating oil due to the warmer winter this season helps out the home budget.

NC Enters Year 4 of Common Core and Reading Retention for 3rd Graders Increases Statewide

Those who are fighting common core have been made fun of the parents fighting common core & the administrations in most states have gone on the attack to try to drown out the voices of those concerned & knowledgeable enough to stand up & say “NO This is Very Bad for our children & we do not want it”

With each passing year the schools make excuses after excuses for why the students are doing poorly…
Then they demand more money because they think that if the test scores are bad then of course they must spend more money on the worst educational system that was developed…

#ParentsRights are being denied as many school officials try to hide the curriculum & lessons & tests from the parents. Teachers & Administrators have gone against what are in the best interest of the children in their push to add more highly paid staff with titles to do worthless studies…

Our children are worth more than the crazy experiments which these testing corporations are doing. We can not afford for our children’s lives to be ruined by these people.

#StopCommonCoreInCT end the moneypit waste that we have going on in every town in CT.

Learn All that you can about this program & then get down to the town halls & demand for the removal of this mess from our state & towns! #TakeBackOurSchools

Shop Small Saturdays 2015

Shop Small Saturday is normally the day after Black Friday

I think to help our Mom & Pop Shops we need to not shop just the 1 day

To help our economy in CT let’s Buy Local & Buy American Made.

Shop Small Saturday

I know sometimes it’s faster & cheaper to run into a big box store, but there are many small shops that are reasonably priced & you can see if they are open to the lost art of haggling & get a better deal.

With some planning we can at least buy gifts for holiday giving from our local family owned businesses & crafts people in the state.

We can also buy more of our food locally at family farms. We have several pick your own farms in CT so you know it’s fresh since you & the family spent some fun family time picking the fruits.

So as we start wrapping up the school year & get ready for summer, let’s shop small CT. I hope that you’ll share the small shops that you find good deals & great services at with us.

Driving in Winter – ugh I Hate Snow on the Roads

Yes it’s that bane to unicorn fart believers time of year – WINTER

When freezing temps & lots of snow is falling & we in the frozen lands ask “Hey can you send some of that global warming over here?”

I hate driving in winter during snow storms or afterwards when there is a hit or miss on will the roads being traveled be plowed & cleared.

Sometimes it can’t be helped people have to go to work & children off to schools & snow storms have their own schedule.

What is in your car as you’re driving around this winter?

I’ve been lucky to not have gotten stuck in the snow on the roadside but they have shown on the news this winter how others have not been so lucky.

I’ve done my best to stay off the roads when possible when snow is falling but a couple of times have had the unpleasant experience of being out when the snowstorm starts.

People yes we all want to get home & out of the snow but SLOW DOWN!
What good is speeding home to hit an ice patch & have an accident that causes not only you but everyone on the highway after you to spend an even longer time stuck in the cold in a traffic jam?
Saw that happen on my way home from DC earlier this winter.

Emergency Kit Backpack

Do you have a blanket or some sort of throw inside the car to reach for if you get stuck for an extended period of time out in the mess? If you have children then an old twin blanket for them in the back seat will reach across the seat to cover them all fold in half lengthwise to add warmth & a 2nd one for the adults in the front seat.

With it being winter try to never let the gas tank go below 3/4 full would be ideal but reality is not as easy to do as we’d like. The danger in letting the gas tank go below 1/4 is that in a traffic jam you could run out of gas or more common is that in this cold the gas lines will freeze. To help against gaslines freezing in the car adding some drygas to a full tank once a month has helped me over the years.

While it’s not snowing take a few minutes to gather items for your next trip out to the car
Snow Scraper with Brush – reminder the new law passed we have to remove car roof snow too
Extra Mittens to just leave in the car
Sunglasses – glare from the sun & snow means sunglasses are year round requirement for driving
Blankets or Throws – 1 for each row of seats
Flashlights & a RED film covering for signaling to show up against snow day or night
Some munchies to leave in the car like granola bars or protein bars that are wrapped & not affected by freezing or heat for a month
Candle in a Tin & Matches – hey save gas & battery life with a candle in a tin if stuck on the roadside adds a tiny bit of heat too
First Aid kit – pick one up at the store & add what you need to it & put it under the front seat

There are websites that offer more in depth details about what to have in an emergency kit for the car & home. One of the sites which I have been involved with is http://AroundTheCabin.com/Campfire This is where we can chat, ask questions & discuss all sort of different ideas about life in a world without electrical power or emergencies like Katrina / Sandy style events.
They start 8pm eastern Sunday through Friday nights & will be expanding their times on air as they bring on more hosts.
