My Slow Takes (Vol. 72)

1. Notre Dame’s Saturday night game against the Oklahoma Sooner's was different from what some of the sports announcers talked about earlier in the day. Although the score seemed one sided, it was tied 13-13 with nine minutes left in the forth quarter. Another exciting finish for the Irish Lads as they added another win. A record of 8-0.

2. It’s Sunday night and Hurricane Sandy is moving closer north. We have a high wind advisory from 8AM Monday until 6AM Tuesday. Winds will be 20 to 35 MPH with gusts up to 50 MPH. This will probably bring down trees and cause power outages in our area. I pray there will be little structural damage and no injuries or fatalities.

3. Randy Booth shared some very interesting thoughts on the Presidential election. His ideas on politics and religion and how they relate to each of us are simple and honest. I have learned and experienced things during my lifetime. I know there will be more and I know that it is not always going to be easy. I have no regrets and I hold no grudges. I just keep enhancing my faith and put my life in God’s hands.

4. It’s Tuesday morning and we have come through the storm with no damage and still retain power. Unfortunately those in New York, New Jersey, Connecticut and Pennsylvania are having serious issues. Lord thank you for helping us and please help those who are in the midst of the storm.

5. Halloween night was very sparse this year. We only went through one bag of candy. Perhaps our neighborhood children are growing up.

6. General Motors announced a profit of $1.48 Billion dollars. I read the rest of the article and found out we, the taxpayers, still have a poor “return on our investment.”

“GM shares closed Wednesday at $25.50, up $2.22, or 9.5% That remains well off the November 2010 IPO price of $33 and below the about $53 needed for the government to break even on the 2009 bailout.”
Perhaps when GM makes a profit they could send each of us a tax free check. It would put the money back in our hands and we may use more wisely than Congress. Just a thought.
7. Please vote next week. It’s important for each of us to support whichever candidate we follow. Many men and women fought and died so that we may have this freedom.
