My take on the protesters

My Dad gave me some advice when I was very young. I have followed it carefully.

"Jack you have to be smart enough to know when to give up".

Protesters you should follow my Dad's advice also. No matter just how you voted  "or" did you even vote, Donald Trump will be the president for the next four years no matter how much you protest.
Give it up......... Jack

what is Bluetooth?

2.4 to 2.485 GHz
When I was a kid (i'm 71 now) I dreamed of being able to hear what was on above the FM broadcast band. 2,400 Mhz. was unheard of, let alone having a receiver to tune into it. Now we have Bluetooth transmitters and receivers, many the small size of only a few inches. I have a Bluetooth speaker the size of my fist that works with the Amazon Echo Dot,  also a Bluetooth transmitter the size of a postage stamp that I plug into my Ham Radio, TV, Stereo,  or computer. This with a pair of Bluetooth headphones I can walk about the house.

Have you seen any bears?

The last sighting of a black bear that entered Indiana from Kentucky in July was Nov. 20 in Big Oaks National Wildlife Refuge north of Madison. We believe the bear found a place to hibernate at Big Oaks.
(Jefferson Proving Grown near Madison, In.)

Bears hibernate around 5 months with the possibility of emerging during winter thaws to search for food. Report bear sightings to the DNR Division of Fish & Wildlife at (812) 334-1137 or
