Thank You, Belle!

A Hungarian man went to the local rabbi and complained, "Life is unbearable. There are nine of us living in one room. What can I do?" The rabbi answered without hesitation, "Take your goat into the room with you and come back in a week."

For the rest of the story go here.

God is in Charge of Regulating CO2

The Freedom Institute of Erie County (Ohio) has released its Voter Guide. Here is my favorite:

The regulation of Carbon Dioxide in our atmosphere should be left to God and not government and I oppose all measures of Cap and Trade as well as the teaching of global warming theory in our schools.

Speed Limits

The speed limit on two lane highways in Iowa is 55 miles per hour. Not 65 like South Dakota or 60 in some other states. However, 60-65 mph has become the norm in Iowa, due to a lot of roads and "lax" enforcement of the speed limit.

I normally drive 60-62 on most rural roads. That's a nice comfortable speed. With proper planning I avoid most small towns and can average an actual speed of between 50 and 55 miles per hour and a fuel mileage around 24 mpg with a four wheel drive pickup.

But, lately traffic has been in ultra high speed mode. People are driving 65-70. They pull up behind and follow as close as possible and pass in the stupidest places. Passing while coming into a small town with children playing is DUMB. Passing going up hill and on curves.

If you wish to kill yourself, that's entirely up to you. But those children don't want to be involved and neither do I.
