Winter Clothing

You're going out for a drive on a nice blizzardy day. Shall I wear a heavy coat or something that looks good? Hat? No, hat head. Gloves? Don't own any.

Thank God for the highway patrol!

Land of the Loons

The following comments are from an article at CNN about Cindy McCain posing for a website supporting gay marriage.

I am not the world's best writer or speller and certainly make some mistakes when it comes to punctuation. I do think a bit abnormally at times, but this is completely beyond comprehension.

As some people get old and confusion from senility begins to set in, they seek to 'rectify their soul' (better late than never, right?) sometimes in the most delusional of ways.
Even the pigs and dogs know that mating is supposed to be among physical gender opposites.However, when the mind-brain is out of kilter and the educational system is ineffective in helping to properly mature citizens, then 'anything goes' for unfortunate societies on the path of self-destruction.

This person has never been around a pen of boars or bulls.

I've always said Cindy McCain was the quesential mentally abused woman. The duct tape is appropriate to say the least. I admire her for taking a stand on something. I only wish she had the courage to come forth and tell the world the truth about John McCain but I'm sure she fears for her life every day and every night.

Nudity in Politics

First of all I have nothing against nudity*. In fact, it's is rather enjoyable. However, name one female politician (other than Sarah Palin) who would have a chance of winning if she had ever posed semi-nude in a magazine.

*female nudity that is, I don't like nude dudes.

Movie Quote of the Day

From the 1983 movie "WarGames" with Matthew Broderick and Ally Sheely.

Jennifer: "He wasn't very old."
David: "No, he was pretty old. He was 41."
Jennifer: "Oh yeah? Oh, that's old."
And a special bonus tonight, a quick summary of the movie:

Omaha's Action 3 News

This lovely reporter from Action 3 News in Omaha has apparently never been to a real rural area.

Break in at the Iowa GOP Headquarters?

Political subterfuge is alive and well in Iowa! It seems that someone apparently broke into the Iowa Republican party headquarters. You can read the entire article at the Sioux City Journal, but this post is longer than that. The Iowa GOP is being very subdued about the whole matter.

My original thought was that this "crime" was the work of the Democratic Underground.

But then, it occurred to me that it might be the Republican Underground trying to make it look like the work of the Democrats.

But, that didn't seem to make much sense, so I figured it had to be a group of terrorists trying to find out as much as they could about the Iowa GOP plan for combating terrorism.

Then it came to me: the people who broke into the Iowa GOP Headquarters are "Gay Russian Communists" who want to get married in Iowa!

Another Week in Paradise

This house only looks good during the winter.

Beautiful logs.

With all of the snow it was tough to find the middle of the road.

PJ's ferrin car with it's blanket of snow.

Christmas Gifts

I think this may be a gift that will be returned.

A Good Time Was Had by All

What an exciting New Year's Eve for PJ and I! She wandered off to bed about 9:15 last night, while I watched the tele. As i was getting ready to turn it off, I picked up my cell phone to check out the time. 11:59 pm CST. What was I to do? I could lay it down, turn off the tv and go to sleep or wait for the magical moment that it transported me into a new decade. I decided to wait for that moment. It was kind of like waiting for toast to pop up; I waited and waited and waited, then, in a flash, it said Fri. Jan 1.

That's when I rolled over and went sleep.

Now for a few leftover things from 2009:

A woman in South Dakota was arrested for DUI. That in itself is unremarkable. The fact that her blood alcohol was .708 is, however. She also missed her court appearance and was found in a stolen vehicle. The story from the Star Tribune is here.

Last year I also maintained my status with some hotel/motel chain reward programs as an elite member. I feel a bit like George Clooney in "Up in the Air".

But I do not consider my time at home "miserable" and I did not follow (or lead) any women into hotel rooms!
