A Quote for Our Times

When the righteous triumph, there is great elation;
but when the wicked rise to power, people go into hiding,

And blog very little.
Proverbs 28:12,  Malott's Amplified Version

Home Improvements

With the election results still giving me pain, I have decided to spend my money while it is still worth something.

I had my driveway paved, but you'll just have to imagine that. 

In my bedroom my TV sat upon ugly 5 foot tall shelves that were basically unstained pine boards screwed together... And my TV was tipped forward by placing the base on telephone books.

The mounting device shown below cost 50 bucks at Sam's Club and took 2 hours to install... but ten minutes of that were spent planning and another 45 minutes were spent pacing around worrying about it.  The ladder shelves cost 99 dollars at Sam's and took 90 minutes to assemble.  They match the color of my bedroom furniture.  The small light is connected to the bedroom's light switch.

The TV now swivels right and left and up and down.  The angle seen here is aimed at my pillow.

Some time in January I'll post pics of my new chairs and tables in my den... They haven't all arrived yet. 

In the spring I may sell my stocks and install replacement windows.  I figure the money I spend is money that Obama can neither confiscate nor devalue.
