To snow ski, I can either drive about 3.5 hours to Western NC resorts, or 7 hours to real powder, in Snowshoe, WV. High mountains near Asheville, NC, in less than 3 hours. We can get good snows here (8 inches or less), but it's rare - about every other year or two do we get significant snow. About 25 miles south of me got two feet of snow, back in the early '70s. I'd love to live in Denver or somewhere very close to snow country, but that has typically has nice weather. I just don't like the frigid stuff where the daytime high and wind is still brutal - like Vermont.

In the east side of NC its rainy and rather cold. Not a good mix at all.
Yesterday was sunny and fairly warm, though there was a lot of wind too, but better than it has been.

Didn't know this about your economy.
Good work it seems.

Here are seven amazing facts about Trump’s economy the media do not want you to know:

Latino Unemployment Hits Record Low
What that means is that the unemployment rate for Latinos is the lowest … ever … in the 45-year history of government tracking.

What that means is the Latino unemployment rate is a measly 4.7 percent.

Black Unemployment Rate Hits 17-Year Low
At 7.3 percent, the black unemployment rate still needs to improve, but not since hitting 7 percent in 2000 have things looked this good, most especially after nearly two decades of double-digit unemployment.

Real Economic Growth
After an unexpectedly high growth rate of 3.3 percent in the third quarter of 2017 (and that is with two devastating hurricanes), projections for the fourth quarter have edged into the magic number of 4 percent.

Soaring Economic Optimism
Optimism in the American economy breeds investor confidence and consumer spending, which, in turn, drives all the creation and manufacturing and shipping of products needed to fill those needs, which, in turn, gives us Boom Times. For the first time in more than a decade, a majority of Americans see our economy as “good or excellent.” A near record of 41 percent believe 2018 will see an even better economy and their home values rise; 42 percent believe their wages will increase.

Perception is reality.

Booming Stock Market
With millions of working and middle-class Americans invested in the stock market through various retirement accounts, every announcement of a new record rings like a cash register ringing in their hardworking ears.

While pushing long overdue corporate (and income) taxes through Congress, using whatever authority he can to unilaterally cut red tape, and the power of the bully pulpit to sell America and the American worker to the world, Trump’s tide is lifting all boats in ways the “experts” warned us was not possible.

Unemployment Rate Hits 17-Year Low
America now enjoys an unemployment rate of just 4.1 percent, the lowest since 2000.

Manufacturing Jobs Boom
In the final year of the Obama presidency, America lost a net of 16,000 manufacturing jobs. While still president and speaking of Trump, this is how President Obama responded:

When somebody says like the person you just mentioned who I’m not going to advertise for, that he’s going to bring all these jobs back. Well how exactly are you going to do that? What are you going to do? There’s uh-uh no answer to it. He just says. “I’m going to negotiate a better deal.” Well, how? How exactly are you going to negotiate that? What magic wand do you have? And usually the answer is, he doesn’t have an answer.

So far in 2017, a full 171,000 manufacturing jobs have been created. Moreover, the manufacturing unemployment rate is just 2.6 percent, the lowest ever recorded.

With massive tax cuts expected to become law this week, maybe even as early as Tuesday, this should make for a very bright 2018 and relieve fears of the stock market gains becoming a bubble.

Additionally, these tax cuts also finally kill off the onerous Obamacare mandate, a massive tax increase that brutalizes those making less than $50,000 a year. Other goodies include incentives for corporations to repatriate trillions stashed overseas to avoid America’s unnecessarily high tax rates.

Moreover, finally, after decades of being blocked for no good reason, this tax bill ends the dumb ban on oil drilling in Alaska’s Arctic National Wildlife Refuge (ANWR), which will create any number of solid manufacturing jobs in an area in desperate of them.

Hopefully, everything mentioned above will turn into the kind of job growth this country should have seen after coming out of 2008’s Great Recession (had Obama’s affection for socialism, wealth distribution, and central government control not smothered it).

And a jobs boom could not come at a better time for the American worker. With unemployment at just 4.1 percent, something close to full employment, wage increases will surely follow.

When somebody says like the person you just mentioned who I’m not going to advertise for, that he’s going to bring all these jobs back. Well how exactly are you going to do that? What are you going to do? There’s uh-uh no answer to it. He just says. “I’m going to negotiate a better deal.” Well, how? How exactly are you going to negotiate that? What magic wand do you have? And usually the answer is, he doesn’t have an answer.

I'll try to answer this for you. Well first off,nobody can make anybody do anything and Trump is'nt meaning that when he talks about bringing jobs back.However,you can make it more attractive to stay in America or even make companies that moved to other countries regret they done it by lowering our corporate tax rate which is actually IMO the most important thing about these tax cuts. You see America's corporate tax rate has been at 35% while countries like China's has been alot lower at 20%. So if you are a business man and want to save money it is a nobrainer to pack up and move to China to get that lower corporate tax rate but when the US lowers their corporate tax rate down to 20% too countries like China don't have nearly the appeal and businesses will choose to stay in America and some may choose to come back to the US by negotiating with them. So it is lowering the corporate tax rate that is going to make starting and building your businesses in America much more appealing than it was before,which will cause jobs to come back to the US.It is all about money.

See it has bothered Trump since the 1980's that other countries always get the better deal over the US and he wants to put a stop to it.China has clearly had the better deal for years but it is going to change now.Trump is really just putting America first which is very controversial to both parties for some reason,eventhough it is what they are supposed to do.

Here check this out.Donald Trump in 1988 on the Oprah Winfrey show complaigning about how other countries take advantage of the US.Trump took a frong page ad out in the New York Times at the time to complain about it. Ronald Reagan was the President then.Trump was right in 1988 and he is right now today too.
Hebrews 12:2-3 Looking unto Jesus the author and finisher of our faith;who for the joy that was set before him endured the cross,despising the shame,and is set down at the right hand of the throne of God.

2nd Corinthians 4:4 In whom the god of this world hath blinded the minds of them which believe not,lest the light of this glorious gospel of Christ,who is the image of God,should shine unto them.

Great place for kids to have outdoor fun!


Paul celebrating the beginning of spring:


And those two glorious weeks of summer - don't forget about that! And when a Canadian hits the pool - well, it might mean something different:


Ah, but when the thaw finally hits, nothing like playing in the pool with your dog, eh?


Dude, haven't you heard that it's warmer down south???

I went swimming in September in Vancouver once, outdoors even, not like that at all.
