Every time Housekeeper and I talk current events she tells me she saw it on the local TV station.

Which puts me at a terrible disadvantage because I seldom watch the local TV station. I set out to remedy that situation and found it unworkable. I couldn’t stand the voices and looks of the folks on the stations (some of whom are ex-FOX news persons from days gone by and some of whom were old when I first saw the stations and are now more so. The ones of the “back then” bunch remind me of Congress. They are the winners of the power fights. No fresh faces here, move along).

I’ve found that the web can help me out by bringing me snippets of news from the local areas and I have fun searching the more obscure towns for the latest happenings.

This morning, beginning me search for subjects to comment on, I opened my Favorites list and clicked on Local and Breaking News.

It gave me a long list of stuff going on outside the the little valley along the creek bottom where I live.

Of course, no one said I have to like what I see. As an example, the first three items on the list:

Now. Please excuse me, I’ve managed to make a stew I’m very happy with and it is lunch time.

Thank you.

About tenwhiskey

User tenwhiskey is also the author of this blog. He currently lives in small town Kansas in a semi-retired condition. His kids are married and gone (thank you). An empty nester. Divorced. Very happy with life as it is. Ten Mile maintains a personal blog here, writing of events as they appear to him; commentary, and opinions abound. He deviates into fiction as the mood strikes and creates flash fiction stories and short stories. He will not warn the reader when he drifts from fact to fiction. He feels adults are, generally, smart enough to figure out which is which. He does, however, attempt to make his fiction sound as true to life as possible. You have been warned. He, as time permits, writes and occasionally sells writing. More often than not he gives it away to various non-paying publishers of Ether Magazines, forums or for entertainment on a wall for in need of a hand friends. He likes candy, pies and a certain amount of strife. In the matter of strife - in his yourth on the farm, he became embroiled in a slinging fight. The fight involved lath as a launcher, fresh cow patties as ammo and it was a six way free for all. A little mud only adds (Umm?) a certain taste to life.
