Is It Ever A Good Bet To Procrastinate On Registering Your Car

You can safely bet that if you wait too long to register your car, the police are going to pull you over sooner or later for expired license plates. Chances are that you will also be getting a ticket for the expired plates. I don't think they have determined yet if they will give Shawn Bloemer a ticket for his expired plates though because when the police in Louisville, KY pulled over his car, because of the expired registration, they got a big surprise. They heard banging noises and cries for help coming from the trunk. Seems that Bloemer had been the victim of foul play and was allegedly bound and put into the trunk by three assailants who then stole his car, the one with expired tags.

Sometimes it seems it is just in your best interest to procrastinate!

The End Of The World As We Know It - December 21, 2012

Seventeen days (including today) and a wake-up to go until the Mayan calendar comes to an end. My wife and I visited southern Mexico as part of a cruise a couple of years ago. We toured some Mayan ruins, had to get there by bus from the ship. Our tour bus guide told us that while much of the world believes the end of the world will take place when the Mayan calendar ends, most Mayans just believe it will just be the day the calendar ends and that it will be time to start a new one. I would think, that with all the work needed to do all the figuring that goes into the calculations necessary to make up a calendar like that, someone should have started at least a few years ago - even if using a computer. Of course, it's not just the calculations, there is the stone quarrying and the carving to be done. Those Mayans had best get there act together pretty quickly if their prediction is to come true. Then again, maybe they are not bothering to create a new calendar because they really know that the world, as we know it, is actually going to end on December 21st.

Maybe it is time to start cleaning the guns and getting the ammo into grab & go bags along with some other necessities. One of these days, someone who predicts TEOTWAWKI is going to be right. If it happens in my lifetime, I want to be ready for it.

All the best,
