The next few entries to the blog should be interesting. I had a problem with Windows Live Writer and WordPress yesterday. The techie that responded to my electronic plea for enlightenment indicated that Live Writer was “so yesterday” that I could expect problems, now and in the future.

The faceless individual was content to recommend this, the WordPress, in house writer – Ah, after chewing my rear and not addressing my questions directly. This writer is a clunky to me, as a new toy, of course. This is the test drive. I’m afraid to try loading a picture. Well,, not afraid, I don’t think, Just unsure how the sucker works. Live Writer used a very easy interface that opened my pictures and allowed me to simply click on a pic, size as I wished and done. This program didn’t come with directions.

Around my area some fellow held up a Dollar Store with a meat cleaver. Another man got clobbered by a family member with a leveling tool (he suffered a four inch gash in his head). Another was stabbed to death in his privately owned vehicle o n a Wichita street – no clues. Yet another used a knife to hold up another store and one un-imaginitive fellow used a hand gun to hold up a Golf Indoor Range.

Which reminds me; a woman got mad at a fellow fem and attacked her with a golf club. No report on the clubs she used.

Nearer home, someone out there had a fire. Both of the small trucks left in a hurry yesterday evening and sometime later the five thousand gallon tanker took off in the same direction.

The greater area saw dozens of accident weather related. Slide-offs, roll-overs and multi-car accidents.

It appears the Christmas season saw our first responders responding. The public is being warned that trash pickup might be delayed due to the weather.

I think I’ve pretty well covered all the points of interest, with the exception of the roads and grounds folks saying they are out sanding and salting the roads “ahead of the snows that might come.”

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.
