Thanks for tuning in to CSW although I haven't posted much this week.
It's 'birthday week' and after 4-1/2-years and almost 4500 posts- I need a break from this blog.
Taking a break from all the political and all the too-many other ads on TV too- and I may just continue THAT break until mid-November (possibly longer).
I don't listen to local 'talk radio' at all- haven't for more than 20 years- so I don't need a break from that.
I've got a woman- kids- grandkids- pets- family and friends who would probably like a tenth of the attention I give to all the goings-on that I post here- news- weather and everything else.
I haven't wrote nor made any music for almost 10 years now- and that part of my soul is tugging hard at my sleeve.
Although I work for the local news media and have for almost 20 years now- this blog doesn't earn me or mine a dime and- quite frankly- sometimes becomes a burden.
I'm not happy with the way things are going both financially and politically in this country and I realize (know) that what little things I have to say about it isn't going to change very much- if any at all.
When your biggest blog post for the past 2 weeks is a picture of American actress/singer Connie Stevens posted more that a year ago- it makes one stop and wonder if all the other stuff one busts their butt to post is making any difference at all.
In plain words- my batteries have run down right now- and a deep- slow charge is in order.
The weather is very fine- soon we will all be blessed by some fantastic colours and- by the Grace of The Great Spirit- Ms. Rittenhouse and I are going to go enjoy them this year and spend a little quality time together.
Therefore- a break is in order as well as thanks to you- the reader- for putting up with all this and me as long as you have.
