What’s Next?

Global Warming?  You must be kidding?  We were greeted with 2″ of snow this morning after having record highs this past week.  More snow to come with the temperatures to match.  Hey Al, you sick twisted moron!  That’s snow out there, not a heat wave melting the tires off of my truck!!

Next on the list is that Kirk Kerkorian is bidding on Chrysler.  A surprise to say the least.  What’s even more interesting is that he would give the Unions, employees, and the management the chance to own part of the company.  Good move on his part – if you own part of the company you work for, you tend to have that personal stake & pride in what you do.  No word on if the Board is seriously considering this offer (which is better for the employees than an investment firm buying the company).  But we will still have to wait on pins and needles for the outcome of this version of “Deal or No Deal.”

But is there any justice either?  Ford is paying their CEO $28 Million for four months of work.  Considering that the company lost 12.7 billion in 2006 and workers are getting less than a $1000 bonus, I think this is a little bit excessive.  Of course, tell that to all of the employees let go from the company who got the shaft instead. 

On a happier note, the British sailors are home.  What the aftershocks will be after this latest incident with the Iranians is anyone’s guess.

Finally, the Masters are being played in Augusta this weekend.  I plan on watching the final round (too much other stuff to watch everything).

    I tell ya, Tom, I can’t wait for this Chrysler thing to get settled. I originally thought it was a “woe-is-me” ploy during a UAW contract renegotiation year. Now I am worried.

    As for Ford, let them pay their execs all they want. They are as good as done, irrelevant in the global auto game.

    As for the snow, it kept my motorcycle in the garage. I love snow, but come on. It is time for motorcycle weather for the next several months.

    Chrysler right now is one of our biggest customers and I would like to see things a little more stable there.

    We’re under a “winter storm warning” for tonight through tomorrow. Yeah, okay, it’s global warming. Go tell that to all of my daffodils that are wilting! Sheesh!

    I’m driving up to Utah tomorrow to see my blog partner Frank, who I haven’t actually seen in 3 years. He tells me to bring something warm – But I’m from California, I don’t have anything warm!

    Where are you Al – I need to borrow a jacket!
