A New Day

Okay, so this is an extremely edited image as the color was nonexistent but it fits with the news of the world. The Nobel Peace Prize is now a Major Award much like the leg lamp in A Christmas Story. I'm sorry but having a vision and inspiration is not, to me, prize-worthy. To me, awarding the Prize to President Obama cheapens it and those who have come before him. There are far more inspirational speakers out there that offer real hope and encouragement to people every day and yet they will always go as unsung. I'm just saying, it should take more than hope for change to win an award. Hope and a buck will get you a bottle of water.

Onto the mundane, I'm getting frustrated with Comcast Cable again. I don't watch much CBS but when I do, it's in HD. Lately, HD signal has been going haywire and I miss sometimes important dialogue. Oddly, this doesn't seem to happen during commercials, just the airing of the program. And last night, my DVR screwed up and didn't record Bones so I'm off to watch it on the computer.

I love the image! And it is a sad day in the world of Nobel prizes. They're pretty meaningless now.

We have a different cable company, and we seem to have issues as well. More problems since the digital transition :(
