For this Cat Blog Friday...
... a cat in a box. Why a box, you ask? Well, we are in the process of sending care packages to the troops and it seemed apt.
If you want to send supplies and goodies to the troops too, you can get info about the Military Care Kit, or "Mili-kit" from the U.S. Postal Service. The Mili-Kit is free and may be ordered by calling the USPS Expedited Package Supply Center at 1-800-610-8734.
The kit includes boxes, shipping labels, tape, etc., and the Priority Mail Flat Rate boxes included in the kit can be shipped to any APO/FPO in the world, regardless of weight, for $8.10.
Wow, such a deal! And what a great way to show your support to those who stand watch for us.
Happy Friday everybody.

Clinton Aide Forfeits Law License In Justice Probe
The main sentence in this article is, "In giving up his license, Mr. Berger avoids being cross-examined by the Board on Bar Counsel, where he risked further disclosure of specific details of his theft."
So Berger gets no jail time, he avoids taking a lie detector test, and now he doesn't have to speak about his theft of classified documents ever again.
Where is the justice in the Justice Department?

Second Wildfire Breaks Out In Georgia Swamp; Florida Fires Still Raging
The fires are raging and the smokey haze we saw on Tuesday is back in spades. It's so bad, I just received an instant alert from my youngest daughter's school to pick her up because the air quality inside her school is being affected.
I'm praying for some rain.

Our grape vines are coming along nicely despite the recent lack of rain. This photo
reminded me of a funny joke:
A duck walks into a bar and asks, "Got grapes?"
The bartender, confused, tells the ducks that no, his bar doesn't serve grapes. The duck thanks him and leaves.
The next day, the duck returns and asks, "Got grapes?"
Again, the bartender tells him that, no, the bar does not serve grapes, has never served grapes, and, furthermore, will never serve grapes. The duck, a little ruffled, thanks him and leaves.
The next day, the duck returns, but before he can say anything, the bartender begins to yell: "Listen, duck! This is a bar! We do not serve grapes! If you ever ask for grapes again, I will nail your stupid duck beak to the bar!"
The duck looks at the bartender and asks, "Got nails?"
Surprised, the bartender says, “No, we don’t have any nails.”
“Good," the duck says, "Got grapes?”
It's an oldie but a goody.

Singer Annie Lennox has been hit with a hefty repair bill after Lola, her 16-year-old daughter, became the latest victim of gatecrashers who get wind of a party on the internet.
Annie Lennox's Girl Hit By The Internet Gatecrash Yobs
This was the third time in recent weeks that UK teens have trashed homes in a party advertised on the Internet.
Who in their right mind goes out of town and leaves their teenager in charge of the house?
Pelosi has a plan...
Is it the Little Bunny Foo Foo Plan?
Actually it's part of the $15 billion Water Resources Development Act . Pelosi's measure would authorize $25 million to improve San Francisco port areas, and also would put some areas off limits to navigation so cruise ships could dock.
The fact that her investor husband owns four rental properties in a nearby commercial district has no bearing whatsoever on the Speaker's plans.
I don't know about you, but I think it resembles the Feinstein Plan .
Keep your eye on the money.

You'd think it was the plot of a cheesy movie of the week on TV, but it's for real.
John James (J.J.) Paulsen , a writer and producer on "Cosby," "In Living Color" and other shows, has been held in jail since his wife's decomposing body was discovered April 18 in the couple's upscale home in Carmel, Indiana.

and New Details Emerge In Carmel Murder Case
All in all, it's pretty gruesome.

American cockroaches are wanted by the the Houston Museum of Natural Science to fill an exhibit about the wonders of insects that eat decomposing things.
Museum Offering To Buy Cockroaches
There are enough of those flying suckers in my garage to fill that exhibit, but the museum curators will have to come and get them themselves.

When asked his favorite novel in an interview shown recently on the Fox News Channel, Mitt Romney pointed to “Battlefield Earth,” a novel by L. Ron Hubbard, the founder of Scientology
Romney Favors Hubbard Novel .
I know the movie sucked, but to be fair, I haven't read the book. Still, I question the wisdom of picking any L. Ron Hubbard novel as your favorite while you're on the campaign trail.
Sounds like Romney is as much a connoisseur of good science fiction as he is of
When Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-CA) resigned last year as the top Democrat on the Military Construction, Veterans Affairs, and Related Agencies (or “Milcon”) sub-committee, you probably didn't hear much about it in the MSM.
You probably didn't hear much about how during her years on the Milcon committee, she may have directed more than $1 billion to companies controlled by her husband.
Yes, that's billion with a 'B'.
From The Hill's David Keene, "it appears Sen. Feinstein was up to her ears in the same sort of shenanigans that landed California Rep. Randy “Duke” Cunningham (R) in the slammer."
