Sayin' a Prayer...

***Emily & Peter are in W. Virginia now, on their way here from South Carolina. She just texted me that they have been stuck in traffic for an hour. Say a little prayer for their safety!

***Fingers & toes crossed.

***Some things are just beyond words. I'm not a big Bill O'Reilly fan, but he's doing the right thing in this case.

***Al Sharpton gives me the creeps. I refuse to call him "Reverend," he does not deserve that level of respect. Same with shakedown artist Jesse Jackson. A Baptist minister? Gimme a break.

***Some new direction.

***Wow, I'm going to have to start scouring yard sales for stuff like this!

***A S.Y.S.T.E.M. for thriving in business.

***Setting up a side business...now more than ever!

***Liberals in denial. Well, of course.

***Great article by CR Stam, "Jesus Loves Us So." Words we need, especially now.

Tuesday!

***Clever heading, huh? Hey, it's 4:00 a.m., gimme a break...

***Wow, this guy is a piece of work. Environmental "thinker" thinks humans are just too stupid to deal with climate change. Well, no. You have to be stupid to think man-made global warming even exists.

***My goodness, where is the horror from the Left at Code Pink's antics? Can you hear the crickets chirping?

***Read and weep. Every day, we find out more and more just how bad Obamacare is.

***Lawsuit against Obamacare by an association of physicians and plastic surgeons. The first of many, I'd wager.

***You knew this was coming...it's all Bush's fault!

***10 signs you have good nutrition.

***Obama statement expiration dates. 33 broken promises.

***My daughter and her husband are heading up from South Carolina tonight. I can't wait to see them!

*** The vision must be followed by the venture.  It is not enough to stare up the steps - we must step up the stairs.  ~Vance Havner

Here We Go

***Another week. We had kind of an ugly weekend here in Indiana, I hope spring springs this week! I am SO ready.

***Michael Yon posted some really neat pictures from Afghanistan on his blog. Check them out.

***What bounce? This is, of course, the only reason he went to Afghanistan. He needs a bounce in his approval rating. It certainly isn't out of respect or concern for the troops. He has proven that time and again.

***We have to kill this monstrosity of a mistake by any legal means possible. This is a good start.

***You go, girl!! Sarah Palin was awesome at Searchlight.

***Go Butler! Man, I wish Purdue had won. It would have been awesome to have two Indiana teams in the Final Four at Indianapolis. I hope the Bulldogs go all the way!

***Well, I like to get my exercise in, but I seriously doubt I'll ever have an addiction to it!

***Reagan was right.

***Check out Novemberiscoming.com. Put the fear in 'em.

***Men occasionally stumble over the truth, but most of them pick themselves up and hurry off as if nothing ever happened. ~~ Sir Winston Churchill

Taking a Breather

***Okay, I promise to be a bit more upbeat today. This has been a downer of a week, what with last Sunday's vote and all, but I'd like for my blog to be an encouragement rather than a constant bearer of bad news.

***Words of encouragement from Doctor Zero, "Time to be Amazing Again."

***Can America be saved? I want to post an excerpt from a Bible study by Richard Jordan on this subject:

While the Body of Christ can and should be a restrainer of evil, we must recognize that we are not going to change the course of this world. Too often we have forgotten--if we have known at all--what the Bible actually says about the society in which we live:

"[Christ] gave himself for our sins, THAT HE MIGHT DELIVER US FROM THIS PRESENT EVIL WORLD, ACCORDING TO THE WILL OF GOD AND OUR FATHER" (Gal. 1:4).
" ...KNOW YE NOT THAT THE FRIENDSHIP OF THE WORLD IS ENMITY WITH GOD? WHOSOEVER THEREFORE WILL BE A FRIEND OF THE WORLD IS THE ENEMY OF GOD" (Jas. 4:4).
" ...THE WHOLE WORLD LIETH IN WICKEDNESS (I John 5:19).
"...in time past ye walked according to the course of this world, according to the prince of the power of the air, the spirit that now worketh in the children of disobedience" (Eph. 2:2).
"Now we have received, not the spirit of the world, but the spirit which is of God..." (I Cor. 2:12).
"But God forbid that I should glory, save in the cross of our Lord Jesus Christ, by whom THE WORLD IS CRUCIFIED UNTO ME, AND I UNTO THE WORLD" (Gal. 6:14).

The Body of Christ is not here to reform the world system, solve the problems facing society, inaugurate social justice, etc. While true believers can and should have a powerful impact for good wherever they are, we are not going to improve the world system about us. In fact, part of our task is to testify to the fact that the world is not going to be made acceptable to God but rather as the age progresses will grow worse, morally and spiritually, until Christ comes to put down man’s rebellion and establish His reign.

Wise words.

***I think we can all use THIS:  10 Ways to De-Stress.

***Electric motorcycles? Is it just me, or does that just seem really uncool?

Indiana Weather

***Well, ya sure never know about it! Got up yesterday to snow and ice, it was gone by evening, and today it's supposed to be sunny and in the 60s. I hope they're right!

***The shape of things to come.

***Faking the hate.

***Paul Krugman is pathetic, and he's getting worse.

***Trite, white stereotypes in basketball?

***I don't believe this. Literally, I don't. It's kinda like the people who claim their Toyota sped up all by itself, trying to squeeze some money out of Toyota. I think cases like this are no different than the fake Tea Partiers planted by the Left in order to demonize those they disagree with. Liberals have no substance, so they must destroy their enemies with deceit.

***Tea Party "Vote Them Out!" Tour. You can bet I'll be at one of these when it gets close.

***Audio version of "The Screwtape Letters" by C.S. Lewis.  I haven't read that yet, gotta put that one in line. I have so many books lined up that I want to read!

***Liberal NPR showing its true colors.

Repeal and Replace

***Sen. John Cornyn's take.

***It's really amazing the horror, the absolute horror, the Left is feeling over "threats of violence" by the right. First of all, most of it has been made up by THEM in order to make it look like we're as stupid as they are. Here are a few examples of what our side has put up with in the last 8 years. Anybody remember the hatred aimed at George W. Bush?? Rush sums this up nicely.

***Real presidential, little fella.

Good Morning!

***We're supposed to have a nice day today here in my corner of Indiana. I hope so! I could use a walk in the sunshine today.

***Sounds good to me. I'm in!

***Here's a good roundup by Ann Coulter regarding her recent experience in Canada. THIS is what we're trying to emulate. It seems to be only conservatives who promote "hate speech." Not communists. Not anti-semites. No, they don't warrant an advance warning. What hypocrites.

***There are producers, and there are takers. When the takers start outnumbering the producers, we've got big problems.

***James Cameron is an idiot. Here's proof.

***Beck's response.

***And the hits just keep on comin'. Next it'll be an internet tax.

***New vending machines offer electonics instead of candy.

***Blackfive is an awesome blog written by an ex-military man. Check it out.

Classless Clown

***I'm speaking of Joe Biden. Unbelievable that this dunce is Vice President of the United States. Way to keep it classy, Joe.

***It's a shame, but we're now subjects, not citizens, in the age of Obama.

***My sentiments EXACTLY:

The more time I have to reflect on what happened to this country over the weekend, the more upset I become with the American people. From the beginning of his campaign, Barack Obama pushed for his version of government healthcare reform. This concept was not new to his administration once he was elected. People knew what they were getting themselves into. The fact is that they really didn't give a flying flip. All they cared about what that he was "cool" and had a "hot bod" and, for some, because of the color of his skin. If you asked the average Obama supporter what his position was on healthcare, I bet you dollars to doughnuts that they could not tell you. But they voted for him anyway. And now look what we have gotten. You wanted "change" but you couldn't tell me what he wanted to "change." Now you know. I hope you are happy. You took a man with no executive experience - a man with an expressed dislike for the free enterprise system - a man with a clear radical background - a man who gravitated toward Marxist mentors throughout his life --- and you made him president of The United States. Happy? Hope so. Your ancestors will curse your name for what you have done.
I've been saying this since the day after the election. There were too many willfully ignorant people ignoring what those of us who bothered to inform ourselves knew. Now we all have to live with it.

***Bought.

***Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn't pass it to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same. ~~Ronald Reagan

Oh, HERE'S a Surprise...

***Guess who is exempt from the "Health Care" bill? The senior staff who wrote it.

***Hey, Al Sharpton's right for once!

***Wow. Some depressing stuff over at Power Line. I'm trying to keep a little optimism here, especially when I see that Americans are not going to back down and take this. However, we really have a rough road ahead.

***Same at Neal Boortz's web site.Sigh...I need a happy pill.

***There are a few bright spots...

***Check this out. You'll be shaking your head in disbelief...unless, of course, you're a liberal, then you'll be saying, "What's the big deal?"

***Okay, time to lighten up a bit. Here are some great stories about everyday heroes.

***What a great print, "The Prayer at Valley Forge."

***Is Tiger Woods ready? It's going to be interesting to see how he is received.

***Who will be hardest hit by this "Health Care" bill? The jobs generators.

***“These are times that try men's souls. The summer soldier and the sunshine patriot will, in this crisis, shrink from the service of their country.” ~~ Thomas Paine

***Have a great day!

Dark Day

***It's going to be hard for me to be cheery and happy today after what the House did last night. Our Republic is now sprinting toward socialism. When they take over health care, they take over a huge chunk of our lives, and a lot of our freedom. Which is, of course, exactly what they want.

***Remember in November. Gotta get a bumpersticker to that effect.

***Bart Stupak and his coalition had the power to stop this, and caved. Again, Remember in November.

***“We shall not grow wiser before we learn that much that we have done was very foolish” ~~Friedrich Hayek

***I'd love to say have a great day! But it ain't easy.

Timeline of Today's Votes

***I have this awful feeling we're going to see the beginning of the end today. I'm talking about America as we know it. Here's the timeline.

***Not much media coverage of this, is there? If this were a pro-Obamacare rally, think the coverage would be different?

***This is interesting. If they think this fight is going to be over after today, I think they have a rude awakening coming.

***If you want to refuse to comply, go here. I've already ordered my bumpersticker.

***Here's Democrat Alcee Hastings, "There are no rules. We make them up as we go along." Yeah, we know.

***"The simplest way to explain what's happening here is that not one Democrat in a leadership position in the House, Senate, or White House is telling anybody the truth." ~~ Rush Limbaugh

***Could it be any clearer?

***Man in India challenges a charlatan and wins.

***
Let me not to the marriage of true minds   
Admit impediments. Love is not love   
Which alters when it alteration finds,   
Or bends with the remover to remove:   
O, no! it is an ever-fixed mark, 
That looks on tempests and is never shaken;   
It is the star to every wandering bark,   
Whose worth’s unknown, although his height be taken.   
Love ’s not Time’s fool, though rosy lips and cheeks   
Within his bending sickle’s compass come;
Love alters not with his brief hours and weeks,   
But bears it out even to the edge of doom.   
  If this be error, and upon me prov’d, 
  I never writ, nor no man ever lov’d.
~~William Shakespeare
***Government "help" to business is just as disastrous 
as government persecution... the only way a government can be 
of service to national prosperity is by keeping its hands off. 
~~ Ayn Rand
 
***Have a great day! And don't forget an extra prayer for 
our representatives in  Congress today. Pray that they vote for 
the good of the country, not themselves.

Beautiful, Busy Saturday!

***Hi all! It's going to be another pretty day today in Indiana. I love the sunshine! Lots to do today, but nice weather makes it so much easier.

***I'm going to take the test Tuedsay to be a Census taker. It's a temporary position that pays $12.50 an hour. Every little bit helps!

***This is interesting...Paul over at PowerLine lists some "controversial propositions." Some I agree with, like this one:
* The title of world's greatest man has bounced back and forth between England and the U.S. for a while now: last half of the 18th century, George Washington; first half of the 19th century, the Duke of Wellington; second half of the 19th century, Abraham Lincoln; first half of the 20th century, Winston Churchill; second half of the 20th century, Ronald Reagan. But I very much doubt that the pattern will continue.
Then again, I disagree with some, like this one:
* The smartest person whom most Americans see on a regular basis is Simon Cowell.
Check 'em out and see what you think.

***It's not looking good for our side regarding the health care debate...I wonder how much longer our Republic will stand before we become the Socialist State of America. What a sad day Sunday will be if the vote goes as expected.

***Our help is in the name of the Lord, who made heaven and earth. ~~ Psalm 124:8

***Have a great day!

Sick Feeling...

***...in the pit of my stomach after the House voted on the Slaughter solution, and refused to kill it. They'd rather kill the Constitution. The rest of my day was ruined. Those people make me sick.

***Surreal. Democrat admits that "If you don't tie our hands, we'll keep stealing."

***I'm in!!

***Sleaze. Neal's right, America made a hideous mistake in November. I hope the damage this idiot causes can be reversed.

***Stay fit forever. I don't know about the "forever" part, but I certainly feel better since I've been exercising regularly.

***Keep calling! 877-762-8762 or 202-224-3121 or 202-225-3121

***I don't know about you, but I need some encouragement:

 1Let not your heart be troubled: ye believe in God, believe also in me.
 2In my Father's house are many mansions: if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you.
 3And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again, and receive you unto myself; that where I am, there ye may be also.

John 14:1-3

Sleeeepyyyy...

***I just can't get going this morning! To top it off, my computer's giving me fits. Thank goodness for Carbonite, at least if it crashes I'll still have my files.

***Obama's upside down.

***Amen. If they push through this obscenity, it certainly isn't going to be over.

***As Michelle Malkin would say, here is something really snortworthy. Barack Obama on "transparency."

***Keep Calling... 877-762-8762 or 202-224-3121 or 202-225-3121

These People...

...who are claiming to lead our country border on evil, in my book. If you can lie this well with a straight face, there is something wrong with you.

***I like this idea!

***"Kick open that door, and there will be other legislation to follow...we'll take the country in a new direction."
Nancy Pelosi spoke those immortal words. Are you scared yet?

***Call Washington and let them know what you think of their underhanded "Health Care" bill. 877-762-8762 or 202-224-3121.

***Charged with disorderly conduct -- for praying. 


***What about the Palestinians, you idiot?


***How the mighty have fallen. Mike Tyson is racing pigeons now.

I Hope He's Right...

***Bart Stupak thinks the Democrats are 16 votes short of passing "Health Care Reform," which is anything but. I hope he's right.

***According to Rasmussen, 43% favor the plan, 53% oppose it. How can this be? The President keeps saying he's "listening to the people." Right, Comrade. We know which people you're listening to.

***Yet another Obama lie. Geez, this guy's a bigger liar than Clinton was, and that's saying something.

***What's wrong with this picture? A business owner foils a robbery, and HE'S the one thrown in jail.

***Oh, I would LOVE to see the Village Idiot Alan Grayson in a one-on-one debate with Sarah Palin. She'd mop the floor with him.

***Pride and Prejudice is one of my favorite stories, and Amazon has the DVD with Colin Firth for $15.99. Great deal!

Here We Go Again!

Soggy Sunday!

***Man, we have had a ton of rain lately! I'd love to see some sunshine later today, but I ain't holdin' my breath! I guess I'll head to the Wellness Center later for my exercise, I don't think I'll be walking or riding my bike.

***Have you heard? Harry Reid says taxes are "voluntary!" Yeah, just try not paying them, you'll see how "voluntary" they are. Honestly, what an imbecile.

***Don't forget that Daylight Savings Time starts today!

***Will the idiots in Hollywood ever get it? America doesn't like to see itself trashed on the big screen. They can't help themselves, though. Michael Savage is right, liberalism is a mental disorder.

***We can only hope. There HAVE to be enough Democrats SOMEWHERE in Congress with a conscience and some integrity to stop this Health Care "Reform" train wreck. We better find them, and fast.

***This is what passes for journalism on MSNBC.

***Here's a neat family fun site. Lots of good ideas here!

***We have to get a new gas grill this spring. Nah, not one of the big, expensive ones. We'll probably go for one of the $100.00 ones at Meijer! They look good enough to me!

***Have you ever checked out Etsy.com? It's a really neat site with handmade items. I got some gorgeous coasters and napkin rings there.

***Ew. Flies providing surgical adhesive?

Late Update!

***Whew, what a day! I had to be clerk AND carrier today at the Post Office. Got 'er done, though.

***They're gonna find a way to get this bill passed. Rules don't matter, America's opinion doesn't matter. Only Obama matters. The Democrats in power now are truly despicable.

***There's gonna be a new Broadway musical about Ray Charles. Hope it's good, I do like his music.

Beneath Contempt

***I'm talking about Nancy Pelosi and the House Democrats. Look at what they're up to now. It doesn't matter what rules they have to bend or how much they have to lie, they want this monstrosity of a "health care" bill so badly they'll do anything to get it. Call and/or write your representative today!

***They laughed when Bush stood in front of a "Mission Accomplished" banner, but look at Iraq now. The funniest thing? Joe Biden giving the Obama administration the credit. Well, it's not funny. It's actually pretty sad.

***Dirtbag in Republican clothing.

***More Dem corruption. Is there an end...?

***Hmmm...wonder if this anti-snoring device works? If so, my husband needs one...!!

***What's Lindsay Lohan on NOW? What she has become is really sad. She was so good in "The Parent Trap."

***Can't wait to go to Folly Beach again in June! Of course, I'm most looking forward to seeing my daughter and her husband, but I really love the beach!!

***Here are some pictures from Tuscon's Tea Party protest yesterday. I love the sign, "There's free cheese in a mousetrap!" Perfect.

***Rahm Emmanuel is *creepy*.

***Oh geez. Let's regulate fishing now.

***Rush's answer to the Massa mess. Eric Massa is an opportunistic, liberal creep and any conservative who "embraces" him is an idiot. Thing is, no matter what the media says, I don't think any conservatives are "embracing" Massa as much as just letting him air his kookiness.

***Drinking wine helps women stay slim? Yuk. I'll pass, thanks.

***If your kids are in government schools, check out what's coming down the pike. Better look into a private or charter school, and fast!

***Here are some motivational success stories from people who have lost weight and gotten fit. I love to look at before and after pictures.

Slow Start

***Whoa, I meant to get up at 4:00 a.m. and tear up the transcription before heading to the Wellness Center, but my sore arm woke me up at 3:00 and I've been lounging around ever since. It's starting to feel a little better now, so I still think I'll go. I'll just take it easy on the shoulder movements.

***Yeah, how's that workin' out? The President's BS is coming back to bite him.

***Amen to this. I don't care what Massa is saying about the President and the Democrats, he's an opportunist and not to be trusted.

***This is hilarious. Dan Rather saying Obama "couldn't sell watermelons if a state trooper was flagging down traffic on a highway." Oh, imagine the horror if a Republican had said that!

***Here's the latest global warming whopper from Al Gore. It's amazing that so many schmucks believe this guy.

Rainy Monday

***But that's okay! Better rain than snow! We're supposed to get up to the 50s this week, that sounds *great*.

***I hear the Oscars show last night was pretty bad. I never watch those shows...Hollywood is a cesspool and full of plastic people.

***Thank you, George W. Bush. The Boy King will try to take the credit, of course, but we know who *really* engineered success in Iraq.

***Obamacare Fraud. Listen up, people. This has to be stopped.

***Apparently "Alice in Wonderland" is starting out very strong in theaters. I have no desire to see it. I think Johnny Depp looks completely *creepy*, not cute, as the Mad Hatter.

***Karl Rove has a new book out, "Courage and Consequences." Looks like a good one.

***Well, this is troubling. What short memories people have!

Big Day!

***Yep, I'm cookin' again. For nine, this time. Gonna be fun, I hope it turns out well!

***Should the mom of a 555 lb. boy be charged with neglect? Tragic, but I don't think the state should be able to take the kid away from her.

***Just once, I'd love to see the MSM do its job. The fact that the nutball who opened fire close to the Pentagon was a registered Democrat was easy to find out. You haven't heard them mention this inconvenient truth, though, have you?

***Ethics. Apparently a foreign word to Democrats.

***Wake up, parents. If your kids go to government schools, you better watch closely what they're being taught.

***I'm surprised he's lasted as long as he has. Keith Olbermann is a buffoon.

***If they ram through this health care boondoggle using reconciliation, there are going to be serious consequences, even beyond the obvious ones.

***Check out Celtic Thunder. I have their first DVD, and it really is very good. I'm going to get this one, too.

***Entrepreneurship.org is a neat site for entrepreneurs (hence the name...).

***A Sunday school teacher was discussing the Ten Commandments with her five and six year olds.

After explaining the commandment to "honor thy father and thy mother," she asked, "Is there a commandment that teaches us how to treat our brothers and sisters?"

Without missing a beat one little boy answered, "Thou shall not kill."

***Whether you think you can or think you can't - you are right.  ~Henry Ford

Hi Ho, Hi Ho...

***Yep, gotta work at the PO this morning...then I'll be hitting Meijer and spending wads of money because we're having a big family dinner here tomorrow for Mark's birthday. Seems like we're doing that a lot lately, eh?

***These are the kinds of people Barack Obama wants sitting in judges' chairs across the country. Read it carefully, especially this part:

Before becoming a judge, he belonged to the Republican National Lawyers' Association and the National Legal Center for the Public Interest, whose mission is to promote (among other things) ``free enterprise,'' ``private ownership of property,'' and ``limited government.'' These are code words for an ideological agenda hostile to environmental, workplace, and consumer protections.
 That was written by Goodwin Liu, Obama's nominee to the 9th Circuit Court, about John Roberts when he was nominated by George W. Bush, and whose shoelaces he isn't fit to tie, by the way.  Isn't it telling how Obama picks a man hostile to "free enterprise," "private ownership of property," and "limited government."

***Unions are a scourge on this country.

***Check out this book, "A Patriot's History of the United States." It's really good, I have it.

***Check out Bold, Brave, Courageous. Here's another way to support our soldiers.

***Does this really surprise anybody? Obama's "science czar" has Communist connections. Knock me over with a feather.

***Good. This guy's a jerk.

***If you need swimwear, this is a great place! Good prices, and they don't charge you an arm and a leg for shipping.

***We shall require a substantially new manner of thinking if mankind is to survive.  ~Albert Einstein

***Have a great day!

Yikes!

***Rats, I overslept this morning. It's nearly 6:00, and I've usually been up for a couple of hours by now. I hate that.

***Rush sums it up. "We have just been delivered the biggest pile of manure yet with this Obama health care speech. Practically every line is not true." Sadly, that is becoming the norm for this president.

***Yeah, the most ethical Congress ever. Not.

***That's not your job, Mr. President.

***Be a voice for life!

***I'm going to look into our local YMCA to check out their prices. I'm paying quite a bit to go lap swimming at the college pool nearby, need to save some money! I love to start my day out that way, though. Today I'm heading to the Wellness Center for some time on the treadmill and weight machines. I alternate between the two, and I'm REALLY looking forward to getting my bike out of storage and riding that, and sometimes walking, in the SUNSHINE!

***From the bitterness of disease man learns the sweetness of health.  ~Catalan Proverb

Routine

***Up early, work for a while, go work out, come back home and work some more! That'll pretty much sum up my day, but that's okay!

***Check this out. No wonder MSNBC's ratings are in the tank, this guy is an absolute idiot. I'd never heard of Dylan Ratigan before seeing this video, and I'll bet I don't hear much about him after this. Then again, he seems to be exactly what MSNBC is looking for.

***Charles Rangel stepping down from his chairmanship? I'll believe it when I see it.

***This is the best article on the weird mentality and absolute nuttiness of the Left I've seen in a long time. The same people who claim to be the caring and compassionate ones do their best to incite hatred and violence against those who disagree with them, namely Tea Party Patriots and conservative Republicans. These nutjobs are the scary ones.

***Mitch Daniels, governor of Indiana, shows that it can be done. Will the Democrats listen? Of course not! They're after power, not health care reform. Never forget that.

***This doesn't surprise me. "Green" fuels are worse for the environment than fossil fuels. Like "health care reform," which is not about health care, environmentalist wackos aren't about the environment. They're about anti-America and anti-capitalism. Check out their groups, you'll see.

***This sounds awesome. I've long been a C.S. Lewis fan.

***Underwater scuba cycling?

***There are some remedies worse than the disease.  ~Publilius Syrus

***Have a great day!

Wish Me Luck!

***I have an interview this morning, trying to get another client for my business. Wish me luck!

***Oh my God. Global warming wackos make suicide pact over global warming, and shoot their children before killing themselves. But...the media won't blame the over-the-top rhetoric of the enviros and/or Al Gore and his ilk for it. Nope. That's reserved for Republicans, no matter how stupid the insinuation.

***What'd I tell ya? Charlie Rangel won't even get a slap on the wrist.

***We certainly need more in leadership like Tim Pawlenty.

***Fox News is crushing the competition, more now than ever.

***No surprise here. Hollywood is a cesspool, and when it comes to war movies, it has a definite agenda.

***Is it just me, or is there something unseemly about the President betting a case of beer on a hockey game?

***Yikes. Daredevil smashes Harley-Davidson jump record.

***Pure delusion.

***Canadian speedskater Clara Hughes of Canada is donating $10,000 to the Take a Hike Foundation, a program for at-risk youth.

***I like to see a man proud of the place in which he lives.  I like to see a man live so that his place will be proud of him.  ~Abraham Lincoln

***Have a great day!

Up & At 'Em!

***I'm up extra early today to get my work done...working at the Post Office later this morning. I want to get my lap swimming in, so I'm going to hit the pool at 6:00 a.m., do my 30 minutes, and try to get to the PO by 7:15. We'll see how that works out!

***This is SO true! We have people who are horrified at the prospect of people smoking in movies or in commercials, but apparently the rampant sex and violence on TV isn't worthy of their scorn. What the heck?

***Panhandler with a Bluetooth headset?

***Does it ever occur to them to just spend less, like the rest of us?

***This is so typical of leftists who call themselves journalists. This example is Frank Rich trying to tie the lunatic who flew his plane into an IRS building to Tea Partiers and Republicans, in spite of the fact that his manifesto is LEFT wing, not right wing. Facts don't matter when you have an agenda.

***Great video of a dog running with a Roman candle as it's going off. This'll start your day with a giggle!

***Prayers for the Osmond family. What a tragedy.

***Nutjob Farrakhan at it again.

***You cannot plough a field by turning it over in your mind.  ~Author Unknown

***Have a great day!
