Remind me again why...

Cuba is the "Worker's Paradise"?

Oh yeah, the peasant's - oops, I mean "The Proletariat" can


Let's see, Martin Cooper invented the cell phone in 1973 and nobody has ever told me I could not own a cell phone. Score one for the US.

I wonder who that guy is calling?

"Hello Cousin Pablo in Miami? GET ME OUTTA HERE!!!"

This week's Japanese Game Show

As something new, I plan on featuring a random bit of silliness leading into the weekend. This first post is one of my "guilty pleasures": Japanese Game Shows.
The clip is from a show called "Silent Library". The point appears to be to maintain silence while your fellow gamesmen play horrible tricks on you.

Weekend Humor

Blatantly stolen from Mostly Cajun

A couple lived near the ocean and used to walk the beach a lot. One summer they noticed a girl who was at the beach almost every day. She wasn’t unusual, nor was the travel bag she carried, except for one thing; she would approach people who were sitting on the beach, glance around furtively, then speak to them.

Generally the people would respond negatively and she would wander off, but occasionally someone would nod and there would be a quick exchange of money and something she carried in her bag. The couple assumed that she was selling drugs and debated calling the cops, but since they didn’t know for sure, they just continued to watch her.

After a couple of weeks the wife said, “Honey, have you ever noticed that she only goes up to people with boom boxes and other electronic devices?”

He hadn’t - and said so. Then she said, “Tomorrow I want you to get a towel and our big Radio and go lie out on the beach. Then we can find out what she’s really doing.”

Well, the plan went off without a hitch and the wife was almost hopping up &down with anticipation when she saw the girl talk to her husband and then leave. The man then walked up the beach and met his wife at the road.

Well, Is she selling drugs?” she asked excitedly. No, she’s not,” he said, enjoying this probably more than he should have.

Well, what is it then? What does she do?” his wife fairly shrieked.

The man grinned and said, “She’s a battery salesperson.”

“Batteries?” cried the wife.

“Yes …..” he replied -

(Punchline coming....)
"She sells C cells by the sea shore!”

Public service announcement

This is in response to the comment stream at this posting -

I just discovered something about myself

At the time I posted that, I truly thought that I should not have to explain that my post was severely tongue-in-cheek but apparently SOME people needed the clarification.


As to the stream you spewed out on the comments section of that posting.
Your diatribe has little to do with the posting. It appears to be a stream-of-consciousness purge of lefty boilerplate grabbed from the usual left-of-center places you people seem to congregate.
You apparently feel you have something to add to the "conversation" that is ongoing online and for some reason you feel it necessary to post it here in my comments.
I've grown tired of having to ask you to stick on topic.

I'm asking you now to just stop.

Please stop.

If you really want to go online and attack our president and his cabinet and the conservative movement and Christians and God knows who ever else has pissed in your Wheaties lately, go to Blogger and START YOUR OWN BLOG. You can do so for free and write what ever you want to the world. I am sure there will be plenty of people to agree with you and your sentiments.

At this point, I could care less what you believe. You have shown you have little or no interest in truly debating anything and I do not have the time or the patience to deal with you anymore. Heck, I even offered to meet you personally, just to talk as civilized men. BTW - that offer is still open. All you have to do is respond to my Hotmail account and we can set something up.

Please stop and find someone else to annoy.

Just go away, please.

Why Wii is not for Me

I just spent nearly 3 hours playing (or attempting to play) our daughter's Wii along with her boyfriend and Queen Tiger.

I can now say that I have absolutely no interest in modern console video games.

While I can see why many find the games engrossing and fun. All I could think of was; "There goes three hours of my life I will never get back."

Why I am staying put this morning

Nothing in the weather report says it is going to get any better between now and Monday.
At 7am we had 4" on the ground with a few more expected today. At least we aren't in Cincinnati where they are in the midst of a blizzard - 12" of snow and 40mph winds.


"The Boys" have the right idea for the day. Hunker down and beg for treats. (BTW - thats about the best picture I can make of Max, he is too spastic to sit still for long. )
