    I'm pretty sure that's what Dave did, the ol' "civic duty" tactic. God, Country, Family, and cleaned off sdiewalks  (apple pie and Chevrolet come in at some point)

    This is great! We don't seem to have a snow blower guy on our street, as evidenced by my snowed-in sidewalks. Guess that means I need to convince the wife that we need a snowblower so I can be our SBG!

    The Snow Blower Guy Recognition
    It seems every neighborhood has one or at least one.  You know the person nearby who owns a serious snow blower and, when the "white death" warnings actually produce a worthy snowfall, will extend (even preclude) efforts on their own driveway and clear sidewalks for others. Bundled up to the cold, if not to hide their identity, they move without comment up one side and down the other of your street.  Mrs. WWW has even had me deliver fresh baked pies as a thank you to our "Snow Guy" after following his trail home.
    They seem to shun recognition, but only do their duties because they see it has 1) fun, 2) altruistic, or 3) figured out that Return On Investment on this big piece of machinery is greatly enhanced by actually using it more than their own one car driveway.
    Our guy is Dave Stenger, who has taken on this task for years.  I know he prefers the warm weather when he can read a good book on his front porch, keeping 1/2 an eye on the ebb and flow of traffic and a neighbor to say hello.   But he takes pride in his "fun" and it does not go unappreciated.  Thank you Dave !!
    Who's your Snow Blower Guy?

    Imperial Milk Stout Brewed with Fresh Local Ginger and Honey
    Made with baby ginger from Casselmonte Farm and wildflower honey from Bearer Farms, Hardywood Gingerbread Stout captures the terroir of Central Virginia in a rich, creamy libation with a velvety mouthfeel and an intriguing evolution of notes from milk chocolate and vanilla, to honeycomb and cinnamon, to a snap of ginger in the finish.

    WWW#2

    Gingerbread Stout Aged in Bourbon Barrels
    Hardywood Gingerbread Stout, described by BeerAdvocate as “freagin’ Christmas in a bottle,” is an imperial milk stout brewed with vanilla beans, cinnamon, fresh Casselmonte Farm baby ginger and Bearer Farms wildflower honey. Gingerbread Stout is then matured in Virginia bourbon barrels, where it adapts an incredibly mellow character with oak, caramel and bourbon undertones, and emerges 12 weeks later as Bourbon GBS. A festive blend of spice character laces this rich, chocolatey stout, which warms the palate and the soul.
     
    Best With: Dark chocolate desserts, spiced holiday pies, deep introspection, and good will towards others.  (Does this describe Beer Klub or what?)
    Strength (ABV): 10.6%
    Color (SRM): 40°L
    Bitterness (IBU): 55

    Lawyer Blog on Federal Bill S. 1988 which will "exempt small wireless facilities from environmental and historic reviews under the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA)...
    For those concerned about historic districts and public rights of ways, this is another federal bill that's being discussed which will eliminate local authority in regard to cell tower placement.  Please contact your elected officials if this concerns you:
    S. 1988:  The Speed Act: https://www.beyondtelecomlawblog.com/road-5g-paved-federal-state-pre-emptions-local-authority/
    This legislation would exempt small wireless facilities from environmental and historic reviews under the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) if they meet these conditions:
    (1) They are being deployed in public right of way and are not higher than an existing structure in the public right of way; or
    (2) They are serving as a replacement for an existing small cell and are substantially similar (as defined by the FCC) to the small cell being replaced. It would also exempt wireless towers from NEPA review if located in public right of way and the antenna tower or support pole is not more that the higher of 50 feet tall or 10 feet higher that any existing structure in the public right of way and does not have guy wires. The SPEED Act uses FCC size and other applicable requirements as its definition of small wireless facilities.

    Great thread, Monique.
    I had a chance to review the link you posted.
    We must all ask ourselves how WE as humans stay net neutral. We need to ask questions like, "What does it even mean to stay net neutral"? "How do I effectively resolve my inner feelings of wanting to prowl the web all day"? "When I see others on the world wide web how do I handle the perception that THEY may not be following guidelines that matter to me for net neutrality"?
    It matters
    We must ask others that might have the real answers so that we can form our opinions of this matter properly. Let me give one clear example of one person's knowledge. It is on a different subject, but it will lead back to the point of listening to those who seeked the truth and are now purveyors of it. Exhibit A: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cesSRfXqS1Q
    What is my personal perspective
    For every hour you spend on the internet spend the same amount of time NOT on the internet. Doing this keeps me net neutral.
    I hope that this helps others realize what options people may have to keep themselves net neutral.

    It actually won the "stuff" award that year.
    The Award Supervisory Committee had to deliberate all of the stuff before awarding this movie.
    Things like; Stuff it and stuff that. Look at that stuff. That stuff is neat.
    Questions were raised. Such as: What about THAT stuff? Who could even do that stuff? Was that stuff real? Who would even KNOW that stuff? What kind of stuff makes other certain kinds of stuff radder than the other stuff?
    Edling, you hit the nail on the head of that stuff.

    For those of you following and perhaps upset about what's going on with the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) in regard to "Net Neutrality", you may also be interested in this free e-Book written last year by a Harvard Professor. “Captured Agency: How the Federal Communications Commission is Dominated by the Industries it Presumably Regulates” http://ethics.harvard.edu/files/center-for-ethics/files/capturedagency_alster.pdf

    WOW !!!!!
    After leading LaSalle 13-7 well into the 4th quarter, the Lancers go ahead with 2:00 minutes left in the game 14-13.  Winton Woods gets the ball and through a unbelievable series of plays manages to get the ball down to the 10 yard line with :06 seconds left and Yeri Valaquez kicks his THIRD field goal of the game to win the game 16-14.
    Winton Woods now 1 of 4 Div.2 teams left in the State.  They will meet Massilon Washington HS next Friday.  The game apparently will be played at St. Francis DeSales HS field in Columbus
