America with black humour

Fertiliser going up like a Hindu widow, in Texas? Is the lovely Dina ok? Yes, nowhere near her. She is in Texas but not in West. Which company put that fertiliser production plant in the middle of town surrounded by houses? Oh, reminds me of something of I once heard. Who put this tram depot in the middle of a busy and congested area with shops. In the former, the plant was built first and somebody approved houses around a fertiliser production plant. Do I see developer money involved?

In the latter, the Malvern Tram Depot was there first and Malvern grew around it.

I am nearly old and not so smart, but Chechnya and Czechoslovakia are two very different places, with the latter no longer existing.  I can't believe people can confuse the two.

Some poor bloke had the cops shoot up his boat in a Boston suburb. He now has a leaking boat and holes to patch up, along with some nasty dark red stains on the same to clean off. Fishing for him will be off for a bit and it will take time for him to fix his boat, perhaps six months, and who would want to spend six months in a leaky boat?

If you can make any better sense of the week that has passed in the US, feel free to to say so in comments.

  2. FC, I am often too subtle for my own good, but not this time.

  3. For me, it just seems like average American life.

    IT seems like a catastrophe is happening every five minutes.

    Or maybe not just in America, but the world in general.

    How often do we turn on the news and there's not an earthquake, shooting, murder, collapsing wall, terrorist attack, random explosion, flood, fire, etc?

    Thanks for your concern and kind words : )

    1. Dina, I pleased that you feel somewhat insulated from the troubles. Yours is a country of extremes and paradoxes, and it must be difficult at times to accept that.

  4. Sounds normal to me in crazy town USA - at the same time all this was going on Obama got through 23 pieces of Legislation which had been front page news prior as about gun control and new security laws - just saying is all - how lucky was he?

    1. MC, depending on what Obamba got past, that sounds pretty good. I think one day in the US there is going to be such a horrible shooting incident, as if there hasn't been already really, that the gun lobby will have to back down.

  5. 6 months in a leaky boat. I love that song!

    I agree about developer dollars speaking loud and long. All over the world there are houses built too close to something that should be isolated. i do get a little annoyed when I read about people who live there complaining about the plant/airport/swamp/whatever when "that" was there first and they chose to buy their home there.

    1. Quite so River. Don't buy a house under an airport flight path and don't buy an inner suburban house next to a music venue.
