Jackson Town News

What a day. Not much going on. I watched cooking shows this morning, mostly about food for the Super Bowl. I copied a few recipes, if someone wants them. Then, the QVC Channel's "In the Kitchen with David," which I watch every Sunday. I only got one thing today. They have a tag in every order so you can send it back free. i don't think you can return food, though.
If the national anthem was lip-synched or not, my gosh, so what? It was a beautiful job. Beyoncé is so beautiful. The Obama girls acted like teenagers do. They were cute with their phones. Their parents didn't mind, why should the public?
Hillary Clinton became emotional over the citizen getting killed overseas. They said she put it on -- what's wrong with people in Washington? I heard on TV this morning that four more legislators are getting done because of all the mess. Good for them!
Did you know that the average Super Bowl ticket costs $2,000? Also, 1.3 billion chicken wings will be served. Plus everything else.
When I mentioned last week the Jackson residents who work in health care or for RSU 3, I left out a cook for RSU 3, and also three RNs. I wrote down one CNA, but I can't think of who it is right now.
How about the poor people who still have no home since Hurricane Sandy? They have no homes because of the snow and cold. It's terrible they're outdoors, but we're spending millions on this darn big squid someone found down deep in the ocean.
Last night and right now is a show called "Gentle Giants." It's about horses and is on every Sunday, I guess. It's 5:30 now, so it must be on at 4:30 or 5. Watch it; this channel is great. Now, "Cowboy Church."
Aren't all these fires terrible? Those poor people, some are careless things. I heard on my scanner last week a call to the fire department that said, "She thought she had a chimney fire, the pipe from the stove to the wall was red. Really?" I guess I'll pay for oil somehow. Those poor firefighters.
It doesn't seem possible that Channel 5 has been on for 60 years. My aunt and uncle, Lillian and Francis Dodge, had a TV, the first one in town, I believe. Dad took us down to watch the first show.
As Polly was having coffee this week, she looked out on her lawn to see five deer. They were after her bird feed. There were also a lot of tracks.
There's been another robbery in town. Lock your house, or does it do any good? Such a nice lady; sorry, Katherine.
Susan and Frank Chapen are in Africa camping out. Can you imagine, Sue said it was something she always wanted to do. Me too, not hardly. I'm sure they will have pictures of animals, snakes, etc.
So the bridge in Kittery will finally open and close again. It shows how cold it was. They said the oil tankers were unable to get through, and it could have made us short on oil if it hadn't been fixed.
The fire in Brazil, how terrible! Why wold you light a flare? So many died, how awful.
Be careful on open water. Another snowmobile went through the ice, but he was lucky. They are still not able to get the three young men out of the lake. They had an annual race there this weekend. How could they? But I guess some families said it was OK. The men who drowned would have been part of it.
Ah, yes, Gram is some proud of her granddaughter LeeAnn, who had a 3.9 grade point average on her last semester. I love you, LeeAnn. She didn't tell us; her mom got a letter from Husson. Teenagers.
Don't give your bank number of name to anyone over the phone offering something. I did this week from Texas. Sorry, guys. I got a call and although i didn't give my name, etc., I'm afraid I said something I shouldn't have.
