As far as I can remember, I have never been out of sorts with good ole Mother Nature. I have had, however, some issues with Father Time. I wish, for example, he would take a vacation. Really, all that marching on must be quite tiresome.
 



As far as I can remember, I have never been out of sorts with good ole
Mother Nature. I have had, however, some issues with Father Time. I 
wish, for example, he would take a vacation. Really, all that marching 
on must be quite tiresome. 

I go my way and I allow Mother Nature to go her way. It has been a
marvelous system dating back as far as I can remember. I respect her, 
and she ignores me. Nothing could be more harmonious. 

Recently, there are those who seem determined to try to embarrass Mother
Nature. I suppose they have nothing better to do with their time, after 
all, all the major problems in the world have been solved. The focus of 
their assault on Mother Nature is in the area they call Global Warming 
or as they have recently called it, Climate Change. 

Those of us, who have not strained our brain with extracurricular
thinking, know the climate changes all the time from one season to the 
next. Without fail, spring follows winter, winter follows fall, fall 
follows summer and summer follows spring. A monotonous cycle dating 
back to the very beginning of time, whenever that was. 

The experts are predicting that the temperatures will rise significantly
in the foreseeable future. (Which, of course nobody can see.) 

I think we need to have a different definition of the word "experts." It
seems to me that somewhere along the line somebody has changed the 
meaning of the word. 

For example, the financial experts on Wall Street were predicting
prosperity for the whole country just before that ship hit the rocks 
sinking everybody on board. The primary financial expert at the time 
was Bernie Madoff. And we all know how that worked out. 

Then, the economy experts in Washington DC predicted the economy was
booming, with nothing to fear. That turned out to be a boomerang, and 
boy, did the boom ring. 

In addition, some theological experts made predictions. One
televangelist predicted that in 2005 the United States would be 
attacked by some nuclear bomb sending repercussions around the world. 

The same televangelist also predicted, because of certain actions Disney
World did in Orlando, God would judge the state of Florida. How do you 
suppose God was going to judge the state of Florida, according to this 
preacher? Why a hurricane, of course, and it would destroy the entire 
state. 

Since making that prediction, the state of Florida has not had a serious
hurricane. 

Why is it that normally rational people make idiotic statements? After
all, we idiots rarely make rational statements. 

In the midst of all of these predictions of Global Warming, Mother
Nature has turned a cold shoulder. 

Florida has had record low temperatures this winter. Even where I live
in Florida, tiny snowflakes kept falling on our heads. I had to 
requisition my retired long johns, buried deep in the attic, just to 
keep warm. 

When the Global Warming conference was held in Washington DC, a while
back, there was such a snowstorm some people could not even make the 
conference. They next went to Copenhagen and the snow followed them 
like a well-trained puppy. 

Even this week, a record snowfall has blanketed the entire Northeast of
the United States. Washington DC, also, has had an avalanche of snow, 
not to be confused with the snow job that is usually part of the city 
social climate. 

If the predicted Global Warming pattern continues, we all will be buried
in 18 feet of freshly fallen snow. Furthermore, I personally, want that 
televangelist to predict another furious hurricane season for Florida. 
I could use another calm season.
