About Me

And I got a performer recumbent this last summer.

Kansas could do something in November it hasn't done in almost 100 years

And why not? They elected a democrat guvnor!

The last time Kansas sent a Democrat to the US Senate, the kidnapping of the Lindbergh baby was all over the news. "Tarzan the Ape Man" was a hit movie. And Franklin Delano Roosevelt won his first term, crushing incumbent Herbert Hoover.

The year, as you history majors out there have probably already figured out, was 1932.

That was 88 years ago. And proving that nothing lasts forever, Republican dominance of Kansas' two Senate seats is in real jeopardy of coming to an end in 33 days' time. And while Republican Rep. Roger Marshall is still favored to beat state Sen. Barbara Bollier (D) on November 3, the fact that the race is even marginally competitive speaks to how much the state has changed in just the last four years under President Donald Trump.

In 2016, President Donald Trump won Kansas by 21 points, a margin very similar to the 22-point win that Mitt Romney ran up in the Sunflower State four years earlier. (The last Democrat to win Kansas at the presidential level was Lyndon Johnson in 1964.) But the state -- led by the increasingly Democratic Kansas City suburbs -- has moved away from Trump's version of tough-talking Republicanism in recent years.


By God we'll play football come hell or high water!!!!

With football starting up over the last couple of weeks...wonder if the nice flat and downward

spiraling graphs of successful corona avoidance programs will start going the other direction...

Both in the college and pro teams....

But he also said this season will be unpredictable when it comes to handling COVID.

Nothing unpredictable about it coach...You mask, You social distance...rules that work..

The latest college football game to be postponed because of a coronavirus outbreak has to leave the Kansas State Wildcats feeling uneasy today.

Arkansas State announced Tuesday that its home opener against Central Arkansas will not be played as originally scheduled Saturday because the Red Wolves are unable to assemble a complete two-deep depth chart for the game.

K-State played Arkansas State over the weekend at Bill Snyder Family Stadium, with the Red Wolves winning 35-31. Both teams dealt with COVID-19 absences in that game, as Arkansas State was down nearly 10 starters and K-State was without approximately two dozen players. But both sides had enough active personnel to play.

Things have apparently gotten worse for Arkansas State since Saturday. Could a coronavirus outbreak on Arkansas State’s football team make it difficult for K-State to play its next game against Oklahoma on Sept. 26?

Earlier this week, K-State coach Chris Klieman said he expected to get several players back over the next two weeks. But he also said this season will be unpredictable when it comes to handling COVID.

Governor Laura Kelly Announces Kansas to Receive $63 Million in FEMA Unemployment Funds

Whether its good or bad..a waste of peoples taxes, too little or too much..

i don't care...I think it will help those with bills and little income....

Governor Laura Kelly today announced her administration’s grant application for FEMA’s Lost Wages Assistance program (LWA) received federal approval and an award of $63 million to assist Kansans who have lost their jobs due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

“I appreciate the Federal Emergency Management Agency for its quick response to my administration’s application, and for making these funds available to those who need them throughout our state and nation,” Governor Laura Kelly said. “We will work to distribute these dollars as quickly and efficiently as possible to keep Kansas families in their homes and food on their tables. However, it is still critically important for Congress to create a coherent strategy and act on a long-term solution for those who have found themselves unable to work due to the pandemic’s impact on our economy.”

Just about ready to send the bent back to Taiwan..


About 8 weeks ago...Had fallen 4 times...On the right shoulder...On

left side...on my forearm...etc..eat gravel was my moto..

But gradually it started to work for me..Learned to plan my stops.

Got away from sudden steering moves just because the bent moved

around a little..Slowly...4 mile rides then 8 mile, 10 mile and

yesterday I did a 17 miler, with clip-less pedals on!! Had to be

really careful at the stops...Kept the left foot clipped in and

used the right to touch the ground..Still working on that, bottom

line...The bent is great! Lay back and enjoy the country..except

for the freaking occasional vehicle..slip on the mask to keep the

dust out of my lungs...Oh, btw..did I mention my rides are on dirt

and gravel?..I put a knobby on the front..20 x 1.7 and a semi cross

over..26 x 1.9 on the back..Work great on the township roads..

cheers! everyone..safe travels..
