The Sunday morning sidewalk

The sidewalk is cold and covered with snow.. They say a warm up is coming. I fear the warmup won't last longer than a few days, though.. it's just been too cold and snowy to break that pattern rapidly..Sometimes weather is dramatic, but patterns get really difficult to break. Backs get broken easily when snowing feet of snow, though. And on that note: Another one is coming.
For anyone in the white shaded area—you know, the folks who have feet of snow on the ground—this is a scary image. It’s another ‘little’ storm coming for Monday into Tuesday..  Shovels and plows need to get ready one more time.
So is the news.
So get ready for that.

This is a disturbing story (too close to my own home base as well for my comfort) .. Nineteen-year-old Satanist Miranda Barbour said she and her 22-year-old husband killed a man in Port Treverton, PA in a sadistic way.. she also just gave an interview to the local newspaper, the DAILY ITEM, that quotes her commenting that she killed 22 people across the country so far in a Satanist romp.. She told the paper she can pinpoint them on a map and 'stopped counting' after 22 deaths.. According to the paper, the FBI has been inquiring into the case, giving some more credibility to her claims of multiple killings.. A disturbing read..  The story is also making national attention -- it is another example of why you should be very careful on Craigslist (FOX NEWS source)

Intrigue in China: Where is Fan Bingbing

From CNN:

Fan Bingbing, one of China's highest-paid and most bankable stars, has appeared in both Chinese and Western films, including the multimillion-dollar X-Men franchise. Across the country, her face once adorned thousands of advertisements, her star power used to sell a galaxy of luxury brands, from Cartier to Louis Vuitton.
