Happy New Year

Wishing all my blog buddies a new year filled with blessings and joy.

Let's hope 2008 is a good year for us all.

I couldn't let this milestone pass without a small mention. Today marks the 40th anniversary of the airing of Star Trek: The Trouble With Tribbles.

If you're fortunate enough to have your own tribble, make sure you keep it away from Klingons! ;-)

Cat Blog Friday

For this Cat Blog Friday...

... a cat with a message to all the politicians who exploited the Bhutto assassination for their political advantage.

OK, I feel better now.

Happy Friday, everybody.


Clinton, Obama Seize on Killing

Hillary's claim to have had a 12 year "relationship" with the recently assassinated Pakistani opposition leader Benazir Bhutto was revealed to be another Clintonian misrepresentation of the facts.

I never met Bhutto, yet I knew she had 3 children, and not 2, like Hill said in her Iowa firehouse speech. Wouldn't you know if your "friend" went on to have another child?

Please, Hill and Chelsea met then Prime Minister Bhutto and her children for an official luncheon and a chat afterwards. Trying to pretend you were close for your own political advantage is ghoulish.

Candid Moment

From Sweetness & Light:

More Candid Moments From The Clintons

Hillary Clinton (D-NY) and Bill Clinton attend church service at Mt. Carmel Missionary Baptist Church in Waterloo, Iowa, December 23, 2007

The loving couple before they knew the camera was watching...

and after...

Don't you wish they'd just go away?

Micro Reactor

Toshiba Builds 100x Smaller Micro Nuclear Reactor

At 20 feet by 6 feet in size, and powered by reservoirs of liquid lithium-6 (an isotope that is effective at absorbing neutrons), it would produce electricity at about half the cost of grid energy.

A Festivus Miracle

There will be an airing of grievances...

feats of strength will be performed...

and there will be an aluminum pole.

Must be Festivus... for the rest of us.

Happy Festivus to you and yours.

First Christmas

Born on 9/2/07, Florida's First Set Of Sextuplets is celebrating their first Christmas at home.

If this picture doesn't melt your heart, you are truly a grinch!

Cat Blog Friday

For this Cat Blog Friday...

... a cat and a snowcat, even though we Floridians are running around in shorts today.

Don't hate us because we're warm ;-)

Happy Friday, everybody!

There's more in the above picture than you'd think. Depending on how you look, you can see : a room with a box in it, a cube with a smaller cube cut out, or a big cube with a smaller cube in front of it.

Then there's the Necker cube:

Is the green side on the front of the cube or at the back ? Keep looking at the cube and you'll find that it switches a few times. First described by Professor L. Necker, hence the name.

Cool cubes.

Lefty Time

Can you believe this?

Clintonista Rags

Edwards Love Child Scandal News Hot Off The Web

Don't know if this story is true, but I do know that The National Enquirer is partly owned by Roger Altman, an official in Bill Clinton's administration, and a big supporter of Hillary's campaign.

Also, Ron Burkle (another Clinton buddy) is negotiating with David Pecker, CEO of American Media Inc., over acquiring AMI. Think "Shape", "Star", "The National Enquirer" and "Men's Fitness" in the hands of the Clintons.

Makes you wonder, doesn't it?

Dear Diary

From The New Yorker comes this piece dealing with the fascination people have with diaries. Why do we write them and why do we read them?

Woke Up This Morning

Some diaries I'd like to read...

*Ayn Rand's

*Dorothy Parker's

*Lise Meitner's

Way To Go, Bill!

"They're standing on the corner and they can't speak English. I can't even talk the way these people talk:
Why you ain't,
Where you is,
What he drive,
Where he stay,
Where he work,
Who you be...

And I blamed the kid until I heard the mother talk.

And then I heard the father talk.

Everybody knows it's important to speak English

except these knuckleheads. You can't be a doctor

with that kind of crap coming out of your mouth.

In fact you will never get any kind of job making a decent living. People marched and were hit in the face with rocks to get an education, and now we've got these knuckleheads walking around.

The lower economic people are not holding up their end in this deal.

These people are not parenting. They are buying things for kids. $500 sneakers for what ? ?

And they won't spend $200 for Hooked on Phonics.

I am talking about these people who cry w hen their son is standing there in an orange suit.

Where were you when he was 2 ? ?

Where were you when he was 12 ? ?

Where were you when he was 18 and how come you didn't know that he had a pistol ? ?

< /SPAN>And where is the father ? ? Or who is his father ?

People putting their clothes on backward:
Isn't that a sign of something gone wrong?

People with their hats on backward, pants down around the crack, isn't that a sign of something ?

Or are you waiting for Jesus to pull his pants up ?

Isn't it a sign of something when she has her dress all the way up and got all type of needles [piercing] going through her body?

What part of Africa did this come from??

We are not Africans. Those people are not Africans; they don't know a thing about Africa .

With names like Shaniqua, Taliqua and Mohammed and all of that crap, and all of them are in jail.

Brown or black versus the Board of Education is no longer the white person's problem.

We have got to take the neighborhood back.

People used to be ashamed. Today a woman has eight children with eight different 'husbands' -- or men or whatever you call them now.

We have millionaire football players who cannot read.

We have million-dollar basketball players who can't write two paragraphs. We, as black folks have to do a better job. Someone working at Wal-Mart with seven kids, you are hurting us.

We have to start holding each other to a higher standard.

We cannot blame the white people any longer."


It's NOT about color...
It's about behavior!!!

PASS THIS ON AMERICA !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

The Sign

This is such a great idea. Why didn't we think of it before?

Watch This Video

It's not long, and it will explain everything.

BTW I dare you to keep a dry eye.

Mother Hill

Have you seen the new campaign ads where Hillary's mother, Dorothy Rodham, talks about why her daughter should be the next president of the United States?

I couldn't help thinking of Nellie and her mother, Mrs. Oleson.

*gag* pass the barf bag.

Congressional Scrooges

Rep. Steve King Upset That Group Of Democrats Opposed Christmas Resolution

This was a Resolution recognizing the importance of Christmas and the Christian faith.

The measure passed by a 372-9 vote, with 10 recording a neutral "present" vote and 40members not voting.

Click here to see The Roll Call Of Votes

I also would like to know how they could vote 'yes' on Islam, 'yes' on the Indian religions and 'no' on Christianity.

I find this to be a shameful display of political gutlessness.

Vote those suckers out of office. They don't deserve to be in Congress.

China Doll

Who knew?

American Girl Dolls Made In China

I always thought these dolls were so overpriced because they were made in the USA.


Wise Words

Pope Benedict XVI is warning the international community to base its ecological policies on science rather than the dubious dogma of the environmentalist movement.

The Pope Condemns The Climate Change Prophets


The reasonable voices are gathering strength and the climate change scammers will be exposed as frauds.

Watch out, Hillary.

Watch out, Obama and Oprah (or Oprama, if you want to save space).

Cynthia McKinney, the former six-term Democrat Congresswoman from Georgia, who was ousted in 2006, has declared her candidacy in the Green Party for 2008 because, as she puts it, "No other platform speaks to the African American community as acutely as the Green Party platform.”

Cynthia McKinney '08

My words of advice to Cynthia...

It's not easy being green.

Human Tetris

I kid you not. This is an actual game show in Japan.

Bad Day At Work

It may look Photoshopped, but this photo is real!

A crocodile at a zoo in Taiwan holds the forearm of a zoo veterinarian in between its teeth. Apparently, the vet got too close while treating the crock.

Cat Blog Friday

For this Cat Blog Friday...

...cats who live in a cafe where catless cat lovers can come and visit with them.

Cat Cafe Soothes Tokyo's Busy Feline Lovers

I can't imagine living in a place that doesn't allow animals, but that's me.

Happy Friday, everybody!

No Che

It happened in October, and I can only wonder why this news wasn't picked up sooner...

Monument To Che Guevara Destroyed By Venezuelans

I only wish I could've seen Chavez' reaction to this second "shooting" of Che.

Heh heh.

I'm still shaking my head over this...

NIE: An Abrupt About-Face .

After what I've been reading about the latest NIE report, I'm wondering how do we fight the enemies in the world at large if we can't even fight the enemies that are living right here in our own country?

Birthday Pup

Everybody is talking about Knut the polar bear's birthday, but today is also Elke's first birthday.

The squirmy, energetic puppy above, has grown into the sleek, high-spirited dog below.

Happy Birthday, Elke-pants.

This is the most extreme case of fear of flying bats I've ever seen.

Pork Theft

Australian thieves stole 16 tons of ham and bacon from a Sydney warehouse and then wrote "Thanks, Merry Christmas" on a wall, police said on Monday.

Merry Christmas, We're Stealing Your Pork!

What in the world are they going to do with all that ham and bacon? Is there a market for stolen pork products?
