13 Essential Literary

What are they, do you know them?

Good Morning & Happy Monday Tuesday!

I dingy unite what they are, I didn’t read them yesterday.

Today is the 23rd day of September in my 36th year.

I didn’t post yesterday or the day before that. One of those days had a perfectly rational reason.

Photos from yesterday,

I forgot how easy/awesome it is to work Monday at the Donut Shop. Speaking of working at the Donut shop, if you’re looking for a part-time job. We’re looking for a few good men & ladies. Visit the store 10730 Q St. Or visit http://DunkinDonuts.com to apply.

The word of the day is hebdomadal which is taking place, coming together, or published once ever seven days.

We have work today, I will do 8.5+ hours.

Then we have our Douglas County Republican Party meeting. Lou Ann Goding is the featured speaker. Announced Monday. She is the Vice President of the Omaha Public Schools Board of Education. I’m excited to hear what she has to say about the bond issue.

Which I’m on record as saying will pass 3-2.

I’m also thankful for the planning department who saved us up to (& not excluding $18,000,000).

Also thanks to Roseann & KMTV Action 3 News for highlighting the unprofessional behavior off one of our city council members. http://www.jrn.com/kmtv/news/Tensions-high-at-north-side-town-hall-meeting-Monday-276415001.html?lc=Smart

Have a Good day.

Why does race matter?

STOP being racist.

Yes you can be racist against someone who ‘looks like you’

Bicycle & Walking Coordinator

This is a letter I @Jean_Stothert sent to organizations supporting Omaha’s Bike-Pedestrian Coordinator position and the feedback the we are taking a step backwards:

Our commitment to safe transportation for everyone has never been limited to just one person and it won’t be now.

Since it was created four years ago, the bike-pedestrian coordinator’s salary has been paid primarily with private funding. As that money runs out, and the donors are not renewing their financial support, the position will be eliminated, but our commitment to safe, accessible multi-modal transportation will in fact, be expanded.

my take As a non-car owner. I’m clearly for the multi-modal transportation. As a taxpayer, I’m for government reducing costs, unnecessary services, eliminating duplicated services. I’m glad that Carlos was here to facilitate change. But the ALAC is a better use of time, money, & other resources. A position will be eliminated, but will there be a vacuum in that area, no. I know Julie & she will do a great job being chair of this committee.

I also ride from/to 108th & Q to midtown/downtown. We are lacking east/west trails, but that is something we as riders know about.

We Don’t Coast in Omaha. There are too many hills.

Want to Be

Want to be who I am today.

Good Morning & Happy Monday folks. Today is Monday 11/04/V3.4 & it is a great day.

Mayor Jean Stothert’s is having two community forums today. The one at 24th & Lake is about Jobs. This is her effort to reach out to North Omaha. The meeting starts at 1200. She is also having her 1st District Town Hall Meeting. It is at Benson Library 6015 Binny St. The meeting time is at 1830, I won’t be at either.

Does anyone have a Mario Kart/Nintendo Costumes?

The word of the day is skeigh which is proudly.

So CBS has screwed up again. The Mentalist did not start at 2100, which means my pre-scheduled program didn’t record it in its entirety. I can’t roar right now because it is only 0545 & there might be people sleeping in the area.

I’m listening to Katy Perry’s PRISM.

Going to have me some bacon for breakfast.

I’ve only got to do 1 thing today, besides eat and sleep.

Vernon J out.

Heading & it’ll be alright

Good Morning & Happy Sunday,

We are headed in the right direction, currently south on 42nd.

Today is Sunday 09/29/V3.4 & it’ll be alright.

I was disappointed in something that happened on Friday morning. But I asked the important question and got the answers I needed. This happens. All is well on the team.

Yesterday was a great day. Work, NASCAR, nap, connecting with leaders in the Omaha community. Good luck to everyone running & serving. It takes quite the effort to do what you have decided to do.

The word of the day is contrail which is a visible condensation of water droplets or ice crystals, occurring in the wake of an aircraft.

I’m heading to church today, haven’t been in a while. This is why I changed my schedule to accommodate. It is also coming upon the snow season.

After church the world is WIDE open until 1500. Going to go play tennis, or whatever happens out there. My tennis game is worse than my golf game.

I have at least two things I need to do. One of those is cook so I can eat. I told her I would do that. She asked if I was cooking. She is happy I cook, just wait until she taste it.

What am I looking forward to this week? Since I don’t have any work or activities of daily living planned. Im looking forward to EVERYTHING!

Massive Undertaking

Good Morning & Happy Wednesday,

We have a massive undertaking underway.

Today is Wednesday 07/24/V3.4 and I’m NOT jealous of Leonard.

An American Breakfast

So what’s going on today?

It was pointed out yesterday, via a voicemail that I lied on my blog and I know it. I had a neighborhood meeting and none of my friends or members of Team Vernon J didn’t want to go at 17.00. So if you went to Crescent Moon Alehouse and expected to see me, I’m sorry that you couldn’t see me.

If you were previously made aware of my lack ability to come to Crescent Moon Alehouse and had specific instructions about how I could be there. That’s on you, brother of Katie & Susie. 

The word of the day is grammatology which is the scientific study of systems of writing.

So the President of Omaha Firefighter Union is suing the City, again. You can visit your favorite local news source or legal digest. I’d like to share with you KMTV Action 3 News report on the issue. Firefighter Union Sues City, Mayor – www.kmtv.com, but I can tell you that Steve (it’s probably Steven). They include the entire document is included on the website, for you to read. After reading the lawsuit and in my opinion, I think the City of Omaha will stand strong in this lawsuit. Of course I’d imagine that it will be very complicated and won’t be resolved to the satisfaction of the suing party. I’m not a lawyer and if you take this as sound legal advice, you’re not as smart as a fifth grader.

My e-mail to 4/7ths of the new #Omaha CC

Good Morning & Happy Monday,

Congratulations on winning re-election

I talked to Franklin, Amy, and Rich about having a monthly/quarter meeting in the evening for the Omaha City Council.

I see that agenda item 23 is to continue to hold their meetings at 14.00 on Tuesday of each week, unless otherwise designated.

I would like you to amend that motion to make the 3rd Tuesday of every month an evening meeting.  It could be the 1st, 2nd, 3rd, or 4th. I’m flexible (hint-hint).

Thanks, as per my usual notification. I will be in contact with issues that I feel are important and if you have evening meetings I will also be there.

Omaha is a GREAT City & Make it a Better City. It is your vote, it is OUR CITY!!

Less than a Dipping Sauce

Good Morning & Happy Monday,

An orange has less calories than a dipping sauce.

Today is Tuesday 05/14/V3.3 & we are XXVI days away from Vernon J’s Birthday!

Today is also election day. Here’s my completed ballot.

NOW remember, votes are secret. So don't share this with ANYONE!
I got the test results back via phone. Everything was normal. Which doesn’t explain the tingles.

The word of the day is quacksalver which is a charlatan. Ooooh A Charlatan! It is totally cool to be a charlatan.

That’s all for now. You’re …
