I should have known, because I knew my joints allowed me to predict the rain and cold, but I realized today, I can bring the rains on command ! This ability was inate and I didn't know it. As a reader, you might wonder how I can do this. If you're a reader and a journalists, you will soon realize how correct I am.
The first thing that you need to know is that my entries are mostly spur of the moment and off the top of my head. Save some research for such things as current news and prepared research, the balance of every entry I make is straight from the hip and worse, no notes.
Keeping same in mine, the next situation I consider is a partial entry. I try not to do partial entries because quite a few readers and journalists have "alerts". This simply notifies one as new comments and entries are posted. Partial entries are disturbing as every time you save your work, alerts are sent again. It's sort of like the little boy who cried wolf.
Aha ! You're getting ahead of me ! So as I painstakingly make my entry, which sometimes entails upwards of an hour, I begin to hear rumblings in the distance and the room gets darker. A smarter person would save his work immediately, but unfortunately I live alone (except for Shithead, my cat).
Voila ! There you have it. Lightning strikes nearby, Shithead jumps three feet into the air, my computer screen goes blank and every curse word that I know, along with new ones I make at the moment, spew from my mouth. It matters not the time of entry. If rain is expected, it will come at the time I desire. All I have to do is make an entry !

A television station in the United Kingdom has published pictures of the crash that killed Princess Diana and her boyfriend. althought the pictures do not show Princess Diana, the station ran the pictures, ignoring the pleas of Diana's sons and family.
