Batchelor and Cohen Look Ahead

Wed, Aug 29, 2018 - 9:20am

With the US mid-term elections looming in 70 days, John and Steve look ahead to what we can expect in terms of Russian "meddling" and other distractions from The New Cold War.

As usual, this is required listening for anyone searching for a thoughtful and objective discussion of current events.

This is my very first, FIRST!!!!!

I have been coming to TF Metals for years and today is the day, my very first, first!!!!!!

This sets the tone for my whole day. YES!!!

Now back to reading and listening to the post.....

Yesterday, I spent the day with my husband's college age kids. They volunteered to help me clean my room which is the entire basement of my sister's and my home. Then, I followed them to the dump, as they wanted to be sure I actually got rid of the stuff we cleaned out.

The views from my room are spectacular, looking out over a mountain valley to the east.

I awake with the sun, which this far north is early. I love being retired and not having to be anywhere on a schedule.

Checking in to see what's up on the Eastern Front.

Funny that, saying "Eastern Front" when the east goes all the way to China and Japan.

Checking .....

Looks like I was wrong! NYC and DC are the far east.....
