It's been difficult reading with my eyeglasses on. So I started to take my eyeglasses off before reading something. Now I won't have to. My new eyeglasses are bifocal eyeglasses. Which means, I only need my eyeballs to look downwards to the lower portion of my eyeglasses in order to read something. Which is nice. The extra effort of taking off my eyeglasses in order to read something isn't necessary anymore. I originally resisted getting bifocal eyeglasses. I guess I didn't want to admit that I was getting older. But I'm starting to get used to using bifocal eyeglasses. One extra step in making my life easier and much more efficient.

There was a massive ice storm heading towards Columbus, Ohio. It should've been here both yesterday and today. However, such a thing never arrived. Yeah, it did rain off and on, however it wasn't cold enough for the rain to turn to either snow nor ice. Not that I'm complaining. Ice storms makes it hard for automobiles to travel down the road. Snow without the ice is delightful. Snow with the ice storm makes life difficult. Well, anyway, It's nighttime and I'm about to get some rest. Let's hope the mild Winter here in Columbus, Ohio continues for a few more weeks. Let's hope the good luck continues.

Tony Rosato was born in Naples, Italy on December 26, 1954, but he was raised in Halifax, Ottawa, and Toronto, Canada. Upon graduating Oakwood Collegiate Institute, he later attended the University of Toronto for the study of chiropractic medicine. However, the lure of big money in Hollywood, California caused him to drop out of college to perform stand up and improve comedy at Second City. That lead him first to the final season of the first of three incarnations of SCTV (There were three incarnations before the comedy sketch series ended in 1983) on 1980 before he was let go of his contract. He worked for only one year on Saturday Night Live on the 1981 to 1982 season before he was let go. From January 31, 1985 to January 5, 1989, he was a cast member of the Canadian police procedural Night Heat as a criminal informant named Arthur "Whitey" Morelli. He later ended up doing voice work for animated cartoons when opportunities for live action acting work vanished.
It all fell apart when May 5, 2005 when Tony Rosato was arrested for attempting to kill his wife and infant daughter claiming that they were replaced by imposters. The Canadian Criminal Law only allowed one day imprisonment for harassment charges followed by two weeks parole. Tony Rosato was in a maximum security prison facility without bail for two years for harassment charges. He went through eight lawyers before finally pleading insanity claiming to suffer from Capgras Delusion. Tony Rosato was finally put on trial for attempting to kill his wife and infant daughter between August 7, 2007 to September 5, 2007. He was sentenced to three years in a prison mental hospital, but he spent only nineteen months in a prison mental hospital. His career in Hollywood pretty much died from that moment on. It was a heart attack that finally lead to the death of Tony Rosato on January 10, 2017 at age 62.

You can beg. You can plead. But it won't make any difference. Insurance Companies wants to throw people off their health insurance plans for preexisting conditions. The Insurance Companies wants to charge an arm and a leg for their health insurance plans. But the only thing in the way for that to happen is Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act which is also known as Obama Care. But instead of saying that they want to refuse people with preexisting conditions and they want to charge an arm and a leg, they just say it's a terrible plan, but never offer specifics. Well, with President Donald Trump set to take over the White House later this month, the Republican Party is set to get their wish. With the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act gone and vague unfulfilled promises of a replacement, Insurance Companies can now refuse preexisting conditions and can charge an arm and a leg for their health insurance plans. Be worried. Be very worried. More important, don't get sick.

This morning pretty much started the same way that yesterday morning started. Essentially it rained all last night before the outside temperature started to plunge. Thus ice formed all over the streets, sidewalks and driveways. Plus, with all the rain washing away all the salt treatment over all the roads, the ice roads was even more difficult than yesterday morning. And it's raining right now which makes me wonder if there will be ice roads again. Perhaps tomorrow will be the type of Winter morning which the rain storm of the previous night doesn't turn to ice. We'll see what happens a few hours from now. Right now, I'm tired and I'm going to bed after typing out this blog entry. Not much snow. Pretty much lots of ice all around. Still, it's not really winter without some sort of frozen water on the ground, though I prefer snow instead of ice. Snow is easier to walk on. Still, it's going to be a fun and exciting Winter season regardless.

It's raining off and on for most of the day. It's fine when the outside temperature isn't so cold. However, when the outside temperature gets too cold, all this rain that's falling starts turning to ice. And ice isn't fun to either walk on or to drive on. Well, I don't drive a car though I do have a drivers license. But I do need rides from other people and in that regard, it's not a good idea to have so much ice on the road. Though the falling rain has been known to melt away snow. And today's rain shower melted away all the snow that was on the ground for quite some time now. So now it's Winter with lots of bright green grass. Which kind of proves that it's good to live in a town where the Winter is mild. Is it the halfway point for Winter? I'm not sure. I'm pretty much certain that there's at least one more month to the Winter season at any rate.

I woke up earlier than I anticipated. It's almost around the time that I should be waking up. My cell phone has the ability to also function as an alarm clock. So instead of using an alarm clock, I would use the alarm clock function on my cell phone instead. The alarm clock function on my cell phone makes a noise loud enough to wake me up so it works. My cell phone doesn't have the ability to surf the Internet, but it does have messaging capacity. Last night, I saw about as much of the Golden Globes on television as I could before I got too exhausted and went to bed. It's still too early to know who will win the Academy Award, but it looks like La La Land might be the top contender. Anyway, it's morning and it's time for a new day to begin.

The outside temperature is in the single digits for most of today. It's far too cold to be outside for an extended length of time. It's the type of weather that rewards being indoors sitting by the roaring fire drinking a steaming mug of coffee. Today has been an exhausting day and I can't wait to get some much needed rest. Tomorrow is another day and I can't wait to see what tomorrow has in store. There's hope that the year 2017 will be better than the year 2016. Let's hope if that's true. I'm thankful that the worst of Winter doesn't take place in Columbus, Ohio. Columbus, Ohio always has mild Winter. Even when there's snow on the ground, which is the case today, it's a mild form of snow fall. So yeah, at least it isn't a snow emergency type of blizzard out here. Anyway, I'm tired and I'm about to get some rest a few minutes from now.

I ended up having the shovel the driveway and the surrounding sidewalk a second time when the snow fell again. There's still snow on the ground right now. No further snow has fallen though. I'm not sure how long the snow will last this time. It certainly looks and feels like Winter. Previously, it just felt like Winter, but didn't look the part. It's the type of weather to get bundled into a Winter coat and linger outside for as briefly as possible before finding warmth inside somewhere. Perhaps more so, it's the type of weather for hot steaming beverages to get warmed up with. I wish I still had an electric blanket because this is the type of weather for such a thing.

The snow fell, but it was over within the hour. So after eating lunch consisting of chicken noodle soup and yogurt, my Mom and I proceeded to shovel snow from the driveway and the nearby surrounding sidewalk. Well, the snow was removed from the driveway and the surrounding sidewalk. No fresh snow has fallen to cover up the shoved up areas. Which means additional acts of snow shoveling won't be needed. So I get to kick back and relax inside the house. That's not to say that fresh snow won't fall later today or perhaps tonight, but no fresh snow is falling right now. So that's cool. It's great to have the chance to relax for a few hours.
