Beagle asked the wifey to make a few changes

So bear with us during the re-decorating process. He wanted the girl's eyes in the banner, not possible in the last template so I randomly picked a new one. He'll have to give me the yes or no tonight when he comes home and sees it. There are a lot of other choices though so we'll see. Plus you never know what else he'll want me to add that may not wok with this template. Too many choices in today's world...have you gone shopping for peanut butter lately? Lordy...
Let us know what you think, opinions will be listened to!

Nothing interesting to share...

so here's a picture of two big slug corpses I found in our office this morning.


They must have crept in yesterday during the rain.

And now for something something completely different...unless you're in prison




You Are Kidnapping



You love to be in control. You are incredibly dominant.

A part of you even likes to make people suffer. It's all about power!



You love to take risks, especially if the potential payoff is huge.

But you wouldn't be in crime only for the money. You're twisted enough to just enjoy screwing with people.

Re: the Hero Poll


Let's break down the four choices listed:
Barak Obama
Rosie O'Donnell
Kenneth Copeland
and
Scrat, the saber-toothed squirrel


Obama - Let me say for the record that Obama has 3 things going for him in my book. One, he's a Democrat and the recent, craptastic Republican presidents have soured even a goodly number of moderates on the "Red" party. Two, he's black, which will get him votes from some groups regardless of what he does or says. Three, he's against the war, which is simultaneously a popular sentiment and a dangerous one, politically speaking. Besides those 3 points of interest, Obama does NOTHING to hold my attention. I care not at all about the "Muslim background" stuff the religious wing-nuts keep bringing up. Nor do I feel o'erwhelmed by his promises of change bringing about a brighter future for America. He is simply another Democratic candidate. He received the party nod because Hillary had simply alienated too many people. Hardly a ringing endorsement.

Rosie - Well thankfully no one among my readership of 9 thought that self-righteous and inhumanely annoying cow could have been my hero in any way, shape or form. Rosie O'Donnell continues to exemplify for me exactly what is wrong with my home state of California. And no, in case any readers have just happened by and might misconstrue this point...my feelings have NOTHING to do with her sexual orientation. No, instead Rosie is a member of empowered, ridiculously over-exposed celebrity cult of personality that actually thinks it represents the vox populi of the average Californian.

Kenneth Copeland - This is actually a funny one, with a prison system anecdote no less. Up until this past Sunday I had no idea who this man was...as in, at all. I had brought the remote control into the day-room of the pod (prison-speaker for housing area) to turn on the TVs. I flipped on one, glanced at the man speaking and said: "Looks like a preacher". The offenders were shocked and amazed that I had no idea who this joker was. Their shock turned to moderate outrage when I told them exactly what I thought of mega-churches. I'm afraid that's all I've got on this guy. I refuse to even research him enough to see how much of a whacko he likely is because I really just don't care.

The only one I admire in any particular quantity would be Scrat the saber-toothed squirrel. First off, he's a cute rodent, and my almost 2 decade relationship with Wifey has led me to be moderately well-dispose to such creatures. Mostly though, I greatly admire his tenacity. Have you seen how this guy goes after his acorns? Now that's determination in the face of unending obstacles. He pursues them like Obama going after the young and dumb vote, Rosie after an opportunity to publicly stick one of those chubby feet in her mouth, or Copeland after a new BMW for Gloria. (Reverend, could I get one of those cute envelopes of yours? You know, the ones that state: "I am sowing $_____ and believing for a hundredfold return." I'd really like it for my files, although I'm not sure if it would go under "S" for Snake-Oil, or "F" for a Fool and his money.)

Hmm...I guess it didn't really take much research at all for me to decide I don't like that guy.


*Scrat for President in 2012!
*Scrat's Acorn-Whisperer talk/variety coming to a progressive channel near you!
*Reverend Horton-Scrat's Acorn Crusade, landing soon at your neighborhood Mega-Church!


Cheers all,
B.

Answers and related discussion forthcoming

Heading back to work tomorrow morning, o'dark hundred

Can you feel the enthusiasm emanating through the connection?

No? How surprising.

We had a nice 3 day weekend. Now I need to go pay the piper, so to speak.

Damn, but I need to secure a new job.


Be safe,
B.
