What's goofy is that Arizona isn't a place to throw maple-syrup filled blown-up balloons at. It's a wonderful place ta reside in, eh?

Arizona's only vegan grocery store is closing after just one year in operation. Apparently they weren't bringing home the bacon. What a terrible state!

Or maybe there just wasn't enough demand?

Oh, it's a litany of woe.

People weren't willing to drive to Glendale to shop there. Suppliers were balky. Some wouldn't cooperate with an untested business. Many shoppers picked up one or two things, then bought the rest of their groceries elsewhere. And on and on.

Every entrepreneur learns sooner or later you have to understand your potential customer base. Or it could just be that Arizona is a terrible place...to do business.

Default Do they KNOW?

I was using my Wolf microwave this morning -- it draws so much power it heats my tea in .003 seconds and has a direct connection to the Palo Verde reactor -- and it occurred to me that Californians in particular are completely ignorant of the fact that:

Not only do we have guns, we have a NUKE! <-glow-in-the-dark emoji!

One day very soon it's going to shower radioactive fallout all over the Phoenix metro! Our sonic-boom-emitting F-35s won't be able to save us! Our guns won't save us from the fallout zombies roaming the barren landscape!

AIEEEEE! Stay away, if you value your life!

I was going to complain about the horrible wind and how cold it is now but friends from Minnesota told me of the winter weather warning there right now so I couldn't.

Hmm, well it's still cold and windy here. Really cold. Really windy.
