Dwight Yoakam Traveler's Latern

Something to lighten things up a bit.

Part of me always feels like I'm headin home when I aim the car south across the Ohio river into the hills of Eastern Kentucky. My heart rate slows and Queen Tiger swears that I pick up a drawl that comes out when I buy gas around the London, KY exit. I lazily add, "Yes Maam" to my answers without thinking.
I always throw at least one of his CD's when we are on vacation. Dwight's music feels like it belongs as a sound track to our driving south.

Know Enough?

The Ad that Obama has been trying to get banned.

We saw this amazing young lady at the Lucas Oil VIP reception last week.
Remember she is only 11 years old.

1988 Road to the White House with Sen. Biden

This could get really fun to watch...

Joe Biden On Barack Obama

I agree with others, this came about almost too fast. The McCain camp had to have this one in the can ready to go.

Wait, hold everything. I thought that it was a done deal and we were all going to be able to book passage on the QM Squared's Northwest Passage trip next year!

It looks like the EXPERTS were wrong again!

Given their track record of cooking the books what really amazes me is why anyone keeps believing them. Could it be perhaps this whole global warming thing is a crock of brown smelly stuff cooked up by certain politicians as a way to grab power when they cannot win on issues? (yeah, I know "State of Fear" was fiction but then again apparently so is "Earth in the Balance")

BTW - I felt I just HAD to post that picture of the cute little polar bear as it appears to have become a mandatory practice to lead any global warming story with a cute-widdle-bear or the infamous poor momma bear on the shrinking ice flow.

Here is what a REAL polar bear looks like.

(Hat tip to ExUrban League - he did all the hard work. I just added the cute pictures)

Gorecki Symphony No. 3

One of my favorite classical pieces, said to be a favorite of John Paul II.


From Seymore, IN


just found these guys

Well it appears that the glitch that kept me from posting videos...

was something to do with Firefox. As soon as I attempted to post from IE, the floodgates opened and Blammo...

Bach - Romeros

The Dark Knight- Joker Interrogation Scene Spoof

There is nothing in the English language that sounds anything like that!

Ignoring the intro, this is one fantastic song.

Any minute now, my ship is coming in
I'll keep checking the horizon
I'll stand on the bow, feel the waves come crashing
Come crashing down down down, on me

And you say, be still my love
Open up your heart
Let the light shine in
But don't you understand
I already have a plan
I'm waiting for my real life to begin

When I awoke today, suddenly nothing happened
But in my dreams, I slew the dragon
And down this beaten path, and up this cobbled lane
I'm walking in my old footsteps, once again
And you say, just be here now
Forget about the past, your mask is wearing thin
Let me throw one more dice
I know that I can win
I'm waiting for my real life to begin

Any minute now, my ship is coming in
I'll keep checking the horizon
And I'll check my machine, there's sure to be that call
It's gonna happen soon, soon, soon
It's just that times are lean

And you say, be still my love
Open up your heart, let the light shine in
Don't you understand
I already have a plan
I'm waiting for my real life to begin

OK, so I wanted to post the latest John McCain ad from his YouTube page but for some reason I cannot get it to post here.

Here is the link

I got it from this webpage - (BTW he runs a nice page too)

Funny thing, it appears that there is some "problem" with YouTube blocking access to the McCain ad.

I wonder...


I read that "some Blogger accounts" may be experiencing troubles embedding video but that the crack Blogger IT staff are hard at work attempting to fix the bug...yeah right.
