Much of the country has been hit with cold weather. In fact, some states are expecting over a foot of global warming.
In the news
Consumer Electronics Show
At the recent Consumer Electronics Show they had a smart hair brush. This brush tells you if your hair is dry, tangled, or frizzy. I already have something that does that. It’s called a mirror.
Nowadays all electronics are becoming “smart.” Remember the good old days when the only thing your gadgets could tell you was what time it was.
I need a smart brush that tells me where my hair went.
It’s been cold lately. Yesterday I saw a dog chasing a cat and they were both ice skating.

Washington DC is preparing for the Presidential Inauguration. Some people are happy, others aren’t so thrilled. No matter which side you’re on there is someone on Twitter to tell you you’re wrong.
During the inauguration, the U.S. Marine Corps will give Donald Trump a 21 comb-over salute.
The Radio City Rockettes and the Mormon Tabernacle Choir will be performing at the Presidential Inauguration. It will be a bit challenging – they’re still trying to synchronize high kicks with the “Hallelujah Chorus.”
Football Playoffs in Cold Weather
Many of the playoff football games are being played in cold weather. They not only send in plays from the bench, but also hot cocoa.
You see a lot of long counts in cold weather playoff games. That’s because the quarterback’s hands feel so warm under the center.
In cold weather the guys want to get gang-tackled…just for the warmth.
The players prefer to play in warm, sunny weather. That way if you get faked out of your pants, at least you don’t get frost bite.

According to one website, being ignored is the number one reason women walk away from a relationship. Of course, it’s tough for a guy to argue when it takes him three days to realize she’s gone.
My wife and I haven’t argued in 15 years. I know because that’s when we stopped talking to each other.
I make it a point never to argue with my wife until after she’s done packing my lunch.
My wife never lets me win an argument. But she’s always gracious about giving me a rematch.
I always have the last word in any argument with my wife. That word is “sorry.”

On the Calendar...
January 12th is “National Pharmacist Day.” Pharmacists are very important. Without them who would be able to read the doctors’ prescriptions.
January 13th is “Make Your Dream Come True Day” and “International Skeptics Day.” I wonder what would happen if people who celebrate these holidays ever met?
January 18th is “Thesaurus Day.” And let me tell you there are so many words I can use to describe it.
January 24th is “Compliment Day” and “Beer Can Appreciation Day.” I observe both by saying “I never drank from a beer can I didn’t like.”
January 28th is “Fun at Work Day.” That brings up an interesting question. If you’re self-employed and you take yourself out to lunch, who picks up the bill?

Computers can’t think; computer owners don’t think.
My computer can find the square root of 4,214 in under a second. Before it would take me 4 months to come up with a reason to find the square root of 4,214.
