How to spend New Year's day: Go out to the range so the boy-spawn can shoot his Mosin-Nagant one last time before the weather gets too nasty (48 degrees today, someone call Al Gore!) and I can try out a factory 25-round clip in my G36-look-alike Ruger 10/22. Conclusion: Promag's 25-round clips for the Marauder conversion are crap, the Ruger clips cycled like a charm. Nicely perforated a target at 50 yards with the new red-dot sight. And unlike the Mosin, I can fire the 22 all winter long indoors!

Dear Manchester, NH:

Thank you for your well thought-out choices made in the previous election cycle. Do you even bother to check the qualifications of the candidates before you check off the "All Republicans" box on the ballot? As a result, we have this mouth-breathing work of art trying to advance his agenda in the state legislature.

Rep. Jerry Bergevin sez: "I want the full portrait of evolution and the people who came up with the ideas to be presented. It's a worldview and it's godless. Atheism has been tried in various societies, and they've been pretty criminal domestically and internationally. The Soviet Union, Cuba, the Nazis, China today: they don't respect human rights... As a general court we should be concerned with criminal ideas like this and how we are teaching it. . . . Columbine, remember that? They were believers in evolution. That's evidence right there."

Our local O'Neil cinemas has now officially lost my business. Bad enough they run more ads before a movie than anywhere else (something like 10 minutes worth now), but they have now taken the middle 1/3 of the theatre (AKA, the best seats) and reserved them for the crappy D-BOX system, so you have to sit either way high or way low if you don't pay the D-BOX extortion fees.

I know a lot of folks would like to move their domains away from GoDaddy, but have lots of time left (I had one that was paid up through 2018...) You should know that if you transfer to NameCheap, they will add a year to whatever your current expiration date is (thus, that domain is now paid up through 2019!)

Made my yearly batch of Latkes tonight, one of the better attempts I've made. The secret is: don't skimp on the onions!

Say goodbye, GoDaddy. The obnoxious commercials that objectify women were bad enough, but vocally supporting SOPA loses you my business. Say goodbye to a web hosting account and 10 domains.

Anyone want a 3-month free membership on Audible? I have 3 available.
