Photography and Small Town News

You Just can't beat small town newspapers.


On Display

Through each set of doors at the Dodge City Public Library are unassuming display cases aligned along the walls, not so much demanding your attention as politely asking you to please take a peek inside.

It's Your Crown

If you own a crown worth (a lot),please don't leave it in your car.

Be Careful Out There!

Be careful where you leave your personal items, someone might think they need to call the bomb squad.

If you are going to commit a crime using a hand gun, please be careful, you could hurt yourself.

When disposing of Christmas trees, be especially careful if you are throwing it out a window.

When hauling chicken manure be very careful securing the end gate.

And finally, if you want to play stuntman (or stunt person), be very, very careful.

Have a nice weekend. In fact, have a party!

Winter Weather

The cat of many names doesn't care what the weather is.

I, like these birds, wish that the decision to go south would have been made.

Golf, Anyone?

That most genteel of all genteel sports, the game to watch when you want to take a nap on Sunday afternoon is beginning to have major league problems.

Golfweek magazine's latest cover, a stark image of a noose, was the introduction to its coverage of golf's most recent controversy involving race, but the image has landed the publication in hot water with Tim Finchem, the commissioner of the PGA Tour.

Don't you just love the pharmaceutical companies?

Fibromyalgia is a real disease. Or so says Pfizer Inc. in a new television advertising campaign for Lyrica, the first medicine approved to treat the pain condition, whose very existence is questioned by some doctors. read more

Sunday Stuff

PJ and I had these lovely bright red tomatoes for lunch today*! If you look closely at the plant you will notice Christmas lights on it. This also served as our Christmas Tree.
If you enjoyed "Weekend at Bernie's" (even if you didn't) this story is for you.

Bar Politics

A man wearing a Democratic pin walks into a bar and sees a picture of President Bush hanging behind the bartender.

He calls the bartender over and says, "You should take that picture down. George Bush is a blight upon this nation. He should be impeached."

The bartender, a life-long Republican, is completely offended. "Why you liberal piece of garbage. How dare you come into my bar and tell me how to run my business!"

"Listen, I'm the customer, so I'm always right." the man says. "That picture offends me, so I want you to take it down."

"That's it," the bartender says, "How would you like it if I came into your bar and told you what to do?"

"Well, you'd be the customer, so you'd be right," the man says. "Fine, then let's switch places," the bartender says.

So, they do. The man takes the bartender's place behind the bar, and the bartender walks outside, waits a moment, and then comes back inside.

The bartender sits at the bar and says to the bar, "You should take that pin off. The Democrats are destroying our country with their liberal agenda."

"Sorry," the man says, "but we don't serve Republicans here."

South Dakota Travel Tip

When in South Dakota, don't stay in Pierre, on the night before the SD legislative session begins, unless you want to wait 20 minutes to be checked into your room and not be able to find a place to sit at the bar.

And thanks to PJ for providing today's quote:

"It takes only one drink to get me drunk. The trouble is, I can't remember if it's the thirteenth or the fourteenth."

Muting the Politicians

All the credit for this goes to Mr. Bill, from "ask Mr. Bill".

"Iowans have done everything imaginable in attempts to stop the continuous barage of politics they are facing each day, even going as far as attempting to 'mute' former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee with a bevy of remote controls purchased at a flea market earlier in the day."

Well, the Iowa Caucuses are over. Now, please leave us alone for the next four years! Here are a few comments on what has transpired here:

Believable: Reverend Huck worked the religious right into a Jesus fueled frenzy.

Unbelievable: Willard (aka Mitt) and Hill spent HUGE amounts of money in Iowa and got their butts whooped!

Believable: The media did their best to make the outcome what they predicted.

Unbelievable: Iowa Democrats gave a black man (1/2 anyhow) a win.

Believable: Iowans didn't listen to the media!

Unbelievable: Kansas beat Virginia Tech in the Orange Bowl!

Iowa Surge

After today, Iowa will be essentially empty. Oh, most of the farmers, insurance company workers, and the rest of us Iowegians will be here, but all of the journalists, political junkies, and (thank God) the presidential hopefuls will be GONE!

The political ads will be replaced by seed corn and farm chemical commercials in an attempt to keep our television and radio stations solvent until 2011.

How the Iowa Caucus Works

From our dear Friends over at 23/6, some insight into how the Iowa Caucus thing works. PJ* has her own interesting opinion on this too. And here's a tidbit from a writer in Ames, IA.

*she really doesn't like my attitude at all, for some reason?
