Gone Fishing

At first light, we will be heading out into the Gulf of Mexico to catch some fish.

Let's hope the weather and the fish cooperate.

For this Cat Blog Friday...

... with the recent flag-related posts, what better than a vexillologically-painted cat?

Happy Friday, everybody!

Oldfangled Flag

Wisconsin School Catches Fire, Turns Up 1897 US Flag

School officials said Thursday they plan to restore and display the flag.

Gosh, I hope nobody is offended by that.

Flag Furor

Supervisor Asks Woman To Take Down American Flag

Last time I checked this was still America. And if the American flag offends you, by all means go live in another country where you don't have to see it.

If I were the hospital administrators, that's what I would tell this minority of un-Americans.

In other words... GO HOME!

... cats rowing.

Why rowing cats, you ask?

Well, my youngest borrowed a rowing machine, also known as an "erg", so she can practice over the summer. Yikes! Now I have this ginormous machine in the living room
until school starts back up.

Ahh, the trials and tribulations of a crew mom.

Happy Friday, everybody!

Star Trek 2.0

I saw the new Star Trek movie over the weekend and enjoyed it very much, despite the gaping holes in the plot...

Chia Spock

My family and I are going to see the new Star Trek movie tomorrow and I'm really psyched.


BTW my blog buddy Jen at Jen's Horde had some very funny Trek stuff on her blog and I thought I'd pass them along ...

especially the new Star Trek SNL Skit which is a hoot.

Zombie Fire Ants

Ovipositor phorid flies cause headless zombie fire ants.

OK, maybe not as catchy a phrase as "Soylent Green is People", but some researchers in Texas are using phorid flies as a tool to control fire ant populations.

One Way To Kill Fire Ants: Turn Them Into Headless Zombies


What could go wrong?

Free Speech!!!!!

Not Funny: Barack Obama Laughs At Wanda Sykes "Joke" About Wanting Rush Limbaugh Dead

Can you imagine a conservative making these "jokes" and getting the kind of pass Wanda Sykes received from the press?

Further proof that speech is only considered "free" when it comes from the left.

Bad Spock

Not my kind of Spock.

Justice For All

Thomas Sowell states it better than I can...

Empathy Versus Law: Part III

Hear. Hear.

"Empathy" is a code word for activist. Look for the upcoming Supreme Court nominee to be a black or hispanic (preferably both) gay female with lots of "empathy", but very little merit.

Invasion Of The Giant Spiders

Giant Spiders Invade Australian Outback Town

And I complain about the huge palmetto bugs here in Florida.

How Eating Chocolate Can Help Improve Your Brain's Ability To Do Math

Turns out large amounts of flavanols, compounds found in chocolate, work by increasing the flow of blood into the brain.

So go eat some chocolate, and then there will be a quiz on Riemann's Hypothesis ;-)

Trek Bashing

Trekkies Bash New Star Trek Film As 'Fun, Watchable'

From the Onion News Network - they make up news like CNN does, only ONN news is funny...

Personally, I'm psyched about the attempt to revitalize the Star Trek franchise because the last two TNG movies and the most recent show, ENT, didn't do as well as expected and, frankly, Star Trek needs a big win if the franchise is going to continue to live long and prosper.

Go Trek.

Happy Friday, everybody!
