Posted: Jan 18, 2020 - 9:48am

A morosely winter day, what they call a wintery mix, with an impeachment trial looming. Searching brain and soul for some cogent, placid thoughts, some warmth. Coming up empty, then remembering my tickets to a Todd Rundgren show this spring, inspiration. Yes, we need Just One Victory, then it will be alright. Simple truths. And hopes. And pleas — to us all. Listen.

“We've been waiting so long,
We've been waiting so long,
We've been waiting for the sun to rise and shine
Shining still to give us the will

Can you hear me, the sound of my voice?
I am here to tell you I have made my choice
I've been listening to what's been going down
There's just too much talk and gossip going 'round

You may think that I'm a fool, but I know the answer
Words become a tool, anyone can use them
Take the golden rule, as the best example
Eyes that have seen will know what I mean

The time has come to take the bull by the horns
(Hold that line, baby hold that line, get up boys and hit 'em one more time)
We've been so downhearted, we've been so forlorn
(We may be losing now but we can't stop trying, so hold that line, baby hold that line)
We get weak and we want to give in
(Hold that line, baby hold that line, get up boys and hit 'em one more time)
But we still need each other if we want to win
(We may be losing now but we can't stop trying, so hold that line, baby hold that line)

If you don't know what to do about a world of trouble
You can pull it through if you need to and if
You believe it's true, it will surely happen
Shining still, to give us the will

We've been waiting so long,
We've been waiting so long,
We've been waiting for the sun to rise and shine
Shining still to give us the will
Bright as the day, to show us the way

Somehow, someday,
We need just one victory and we're on our way
Prayin' for it all day and fightin' for it all night
Give us just one victory, it will be all right

We may feel about to fall but we go down fighting
You will hear the call if you only listen
Underneath it all we are here together
Shining still to give us the will
Bright as the day, to show us the way

Somehow, someday,
(Hold that line, baby hold that line, get up boys and hit 'em one more time)
We need just one victory and we're on our way
(We may be losing now but we can't stop trying, so hold that line, baby hold that line)
Prayin' for it all day and fightin' for it all night
(Hold that line, baby hold that line, get up boys and hit 'em one more time)
Give us just one victory, it will be all right
(We may be losing now but we can't stop trying, so hold that line, baby hold that line)”

Peace, love and kindness should flow freely in your personal life.  When you up the ante in terms of politics, government, society and civilization, when you are dealing with large numbers of people,  it is then that they should be rigorously checked through the gates of cynicism.

Heh. Absolutely. I'll come back when I have a "sense of humor." Folks that have known me here for a couple of decades will attest that I have none. 

That reminds me, have I ever told you about my senseofhumorectomy? Turns out it's not covered by Obamacare so I went to Mexico and had it done for cheap.

They gave me the parts they took out in a little formaldehyde jar and I have it on the mantle with the stuff they removed during my tolerateassholesectomy.

It's surprising what they can do these days with a #14 needle and a good strong arm.
 

Me thinks that's sarcasm. Should I still laugh?

No. No you weren't. That word doesn't mean what you think it means.

And the right rejoinder is "OK Boomer."

That is very good to know.  I can see plumbers making a fortune for years to come replacing all of it with, wait for it ... copper ...
 
And doesn't copper have an issue with freezing in cold climes such as you are in?  After all of this grandiose posing, turns out pvc may be the most reliable plumbing material after all.{#Lol}  I do see the attraction for Pex especially for plumbers; ease of install; ease and quickness of patching leaks, but the damn rodents ruining the party as usual. {#Frustrated}
 
Copper can get quite expensive and usually needs to be soldered; soldering it in tight spaces can often be "challenging".  "Gator-grip" style joiners are very good, especially when joining two different materials, but those clips are also costly.  Most plumbers I know prefer to use Pex within in the house (under sinks, toilets, etc.), so if there are "issues" they're easy to get to.  They don't use it as much in walls or under houses.  PVC is probably most widely-used among contractors I know around here.

 
Makes sense.  Our plumber did cover with pipe insulation the areas in the attic, but there was maybe 6 inches that was not covered and they went nuts on that. {#Eek}
