I'm not sure how I feel about Ryan Grant going down for the season. OH! don't get me wrong, I would rather he was not out but is it THAT big of a deal? It's not that the Packers rely on the running game.
I feel Jackson brings something to the table as long as he is healthy and I like John Kuhn as he is totally different then Jackson. Jax is also a better pass receiver the Grant. Some will say that Grant kept the defense honest . . .I don't think that defenses were playing that honest anyway - they are terrified of Rogers.
The Packers picked up Dimitri Nance from the Falcons practice squad which many people poo poo because it's, well, "the practice squad" but the Falcons are REALLY deep in running backs and Nance is suppose to be a real good inside runner.
remember - no one heard of Grant either when the Packers got him.
All is not lost.
I posted this image yesterday and am curious on what others think. It's not going to be anything more then a blog photo but this combination of techniques might show some promise. So let me know how ya feel.
Politics - HEY - I should have run as a Democrat for Sheriff - I might have won. I don't understand why political affiliation really comes into play when running for Sheriff. I could not actually VOTE for Sheriff even if I wanted too! What's up with that???
Did you know that under Walker, County workers took a 10% pay cut by being forced to take 26 furlough days a year. Government employees have THAT to look forward too.
DJ said it best this morning when she said one of the things she hates about many Republicans candidates is that they are fear mongers. On the other side of the coin I don't like many Democrats candidates either with their holier then thou I'm better then you attitude.
The one thing I am going to do is not get upset. All you can do is vote and move on. Getting upset and angry is a waste of energy and does absolutely nothing( well, they are but . . . )
I tried to take a couple of photos of Caydence last night as she was having a wonderful time "singing" and waving her arms but my timing was off. However I figured I'd post this just to show much mush she has grown.
There is a new post on the new Historic Downtown Columbus blog which is a food for thought post.
And speaking of Columbus - Mayor Bob (who I am now a pro-Bob person) met with Amtrak government affair official, Charles Monte Verde (what kind of freaking name is that, "Hello I am Charles Monte Verde?") and the news is that Amtrak has absolutely no plans to close the Columbus Amtrak station and reroute the Empire Builder line through Madison. There has been a 16% increase in ridership n Cbus, far out percenting Portage, Wisconsin Dells and Tomah.
In other news Columbus has experience 10 million dollars in Capitol investments recently.
Columbus also has the fastest growing company in the Madison area and #628 in the entire country, Discount Office Items.Com which also happens to be Americas largest online Office Equipment store. Their catalog comes with one of those big leather belts to carry it around.
I found the German wasp (also called Yellow Jacket's) nest in the basement and sprayed killer on it before I ran away in fear. OH - IT'S ON WASPS!! I was incorrect when I call them bee's as they are actually wasps.
OH OH - survivor starts tonight!! Jimmy Johnson is on the island. What male would ever vote him off.
Have a good day - prepare for crummy weather tomorrow.
