You have failed me.

I had a long post mostly written that tried to articulate my feelings on a few of the current events of this year and today.  I deleted it.  I can sum up my feelings in the title of this post.

My government, and I mean both sides aisle, have failed me in every way imaginable.  They are so wrapped up in their petty bickering over who's plan will win that they fail to realize that we, the American people who put them there, are going to pay the price.

I am not apathetic though. I am angry.  My anger will come out in my votes at the polls.  Any candidate, regardless of party, who did not vote with America's best interest at heart and instead voted with their party, will not get my vote. Period.

That said, the majority of my anger will be directed at the current Republican candidates.  They've lost their way and capitulated to extremists in their own ranks.

I leave you with the words and ideas of Warren Buffet. I would wholeheartedly endorse this plan.

Let it snow.

I'm still working on a long, somewhat racy post for me.  I hinted that I have a lot to say but I want to spend the right amount of time saying it.  As I articulate my thoughts, I find that I need to make several passes at the process in order to say what I mean.

On another note, it's almost Christmas and we're stay-cationing in Massachusetts.  All of the presents are bought. The wrapping will occur tomorrow.  I'm making smoked salmon lasagne for our meals and that's about it.  Should be very relaxing and a good way to spend a vacation.

I'll do a "year in review" later in the week.  It's been a busy and eventful one and I'm looking forward to 2013.

A good ending

Well, they will continue to get my business.  The call went well and my shipping was refunded.  After some discussion, I was able to understand that I could, now that I had the proper parts, change them out.  I asked the technician to note on my account that if I broke the regulator, they'd make it right.

I did that this afternoon and I am officially in business.  The Kolsch is in the keg and carbonating!  Yay!
