Down Day

Haven't had a whole lot of time to do this but I'm working at home so I am going to post.

I laughed when I saw Brown on the news last night and that is all I have to say.

The country is in dire straights economically; my portfoilio looks good however.

I am waiting to see what tonight brings the Red Sox.

I added two non political links; at least one it totally non political and one that is partially political and partially the musings of a twenty year old college student.

Wonderland or Not: A pretty clever and well written journal which includes vague accounts of her life, poetry, political commentary, random stories and sometimes what appear to be real news articles she has written. I ended up there via Politcal Notio, one of the better places to have small discussions on political items with a more or less bipartisan group, where she comments and sounds much older and much brighter than her twenty years. When you read her site it is obvious she is twenty going on fifty. It does give me hope that all the twenty year olds have not lost their mind but still maintain their spirit. Some explicit but very well used language.

Zazzafooky: I came upon this through another site and I found it immediately entertaining as well as endearing, despite not wanting to use such a feminine word. She is a totally non - political site so I did not have to get my brain in gear to read her. She entertains by just writing, mostly about whatever comes to mind and she does it well. She writes about toilets and she writes about her life and it is all worth reading.

I think I just needed to justify my linking to sites that are not completely political.

Thank God for the BBC

Worked late last night and when I came home I was flicking through the news. It seems to me that putting yourself in the path of the hurricane is pretty stupid.

The reporters were out in Texas among flying debris one holding on to a wind meter; the wind meter finally broke because the wind was too strong.

There was barely coverage of anything but the hurricane and although I think they should cover it I was hoping there would be more coverage of world events.

Thank god for the BBC.

Let's hope next week brings some interesting developements on the news front.

This weekend if for relaxing.

Our boys are still dying in Iraq, let us not forget.

My cigar.

I don't smoke.
I did cigars in college and grad school but stopped imbibing regularly few years ago. Now they is saved for those rare occasions when I get together with old buds or when a client offers after a business dinner; I'm too weak to refuse and it would be rude.

This is my cigar now.

I find it interesting that although I created this blog mainly to view and comment others, and considering that I do not write in it that often, that I got me some spam.

Interesting developments with Korea and with Bush and his group trying to meander their way out of past mistakes without calling them mistakes.

I am finding the world of blogs interesting and at times informative.

I am having some fun with it also and am now gathering a few links that although not political are all interesting and well written in their own right.

There are some fun things out there and at my age, almost fifteen years out of college, I am all for a little laughter and wit.

There is hope for the future

We have been through a hell of a few weeks here in the good old United States of America.

Let us ponder.

I am adding some interesting links, most of them of a political nature.

I may add a few that are not political if I find them interesting.

I am heartened to see that there are people out there of the younger generation that are paying attention to what is happening and seem to be taking an action of sorts and at the very least are thinking and doing their own research.

I think there is hope for the future.
