Delaying the change from analog TV to digital is stupid! There will probably be the same number of people not ready for the conversion in 6 months as there are now. They've already had several years to get ready, plus zillions of PSAs on TV.

It's the same thing with changing to the metric system, or getting rid of the penny coin, or replacing the dollar bill with a dollar coin. There's never going to be a time when everybody is happy about it. The changes should just be done. We'll all get over the brief inconvenience. Sheesh!

Poor Kate and Wayne are still without power at their house. The hospital where Kate works has power by now, of course. They're letting employees use the showers in the fitness center there. And a friend let her do a wash load of underwear. The low there tonight is predicted to be 6 degrees F. Wayne's office has power, and they are spending the night there. Sleeping bags, 2 dogs, 2 cats, and no TV. But at least it's warm and they have lights and cell phones and I-pods and laptops and movies to watch.

Margaret and Jesse are coming down in the morning. Margaret and John will be heading off to Knoxville to see the Lady Vols play Georgia, and hopefully see Pat Summitt win #1000. Jesse is picking up his brand new Harley at the dealership here. He'll be taking it back home on the trailer on the back of his truck. That'll keep him busy for the rest of his time home. I'll get a photo of him on it when we're there on Saturday for his welcome-home party.

Today's picture is from google images.
