Here We Go Again!

***Well, I did get a lot done yesterday. Lots more to do, but that's the norm. Looks like we're going to have yet another beautiful day here in Indiana. We have had a gorgeous fall! I took a break and went for a long, brisk walk yesterday and it felt really good! This morning I'll stop for a while at 6:00 and head to the Y for a good workout on the bike and then the weight machines. Then it'll be back to it!

***Y'know, I'm not normally in favor of breaking the law to make a point, but I gotta make an exception here. Six members of the whacked-out Westboro Baptist Church (you know, Fred Phelps' bunch) protested at a fallen soldier's funeral and then found their tires slashed when they went to their van. The icing on the cake? Nobody in town would fix it. Gotta love it.

***Top Ten Cars of 2011, according to Popular Mechanics.

***"Megamind" is quite a hit. I'll check it out when it comes out on DVD. I haven't been in a movie theater since the 5th Harry Potter movie, The Order of the Phoenix, came out. I didn't see Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince until it came out on DVD. There is rarely anything Hollywood puts out that I want to see, frankly.

***Another ridiculous-looking teeny-tiny car.

***I like this!

Apparently, all you need is to belong to a union to get out of it.

***But who's gonna come out against them?

California's governator has declared a fiscal emergency.  The state just can't pay its bills.  Everyone with the thinking skills of a slug knows the California problem lies with the government employee unions.  If you're not trying to do something about the unions, you're not trying to do something about the problem.

***Now they've gone too far!! The Three Little Pigs has been co-opted by the Politically Correct crowd - look what they've done to it!

A new version of the story is now popping up in the classroom as part of the the fourth grade reading textbook Storytown: Winning Catch 4. In that book’s version, the wolf has a sudden heart attack while trying to blow down the third little pig’s adobe house. The three little pigs rush to his aid, save him, and while trying to flee from him once recovered, realize that the whole “huff and puff and blow your house down” thing was a simple “lack of communication”: the wolf actually wanted to move in with the pigs and was testing each abode’s structural security.

Is nothing sacred??

***The Honor Flight Network is a great organization which flies veterans to war memorials at no charge. Check out their web site.

*** 'nuff said. She's as arrogant as her boss.

***Ooookay: Football commentator and former player Joe Theismann 1996: "Nobody in football should be called a genius.. A genius is a guy like Norman Einstein." 

***If you are not criticized, you may not be doing much. ~~ Donald H. Rumsfeld

***Have a great day!

  1. But here's the scary part: Tata, the Indian automaker whose Nano is the hyped tiny car everyone wants, is a major player in the auto industry. With Ford outsourcing all work and simply producing Mazda and (ChiCom) Geely cars while doing no homework, and Obama seizing their other two opponents for giving to Mitt Romney and trying to be self-sufficient in automobile work, and handing them to his cronies, Tata has grown in the automotive world.

    And Tata has a huge network of dealers in the United States. I know of a few Tata dealers, all of which sell Tata's higher-profile brands that we might even know. For the Halloween ("Wizard of Oz") episode of "The Price Is Right," one of Tata's most expensive cars was used as the car prize on "Golden Brick Road" (name changed to reflect the L. Frank Baum-themed show).
