Post Thanksgiving.

Busy four days and I haven't had much time to write.
Hope everyone had a great holiday.
Ours was pretty nice overall, some good food and drink, visits with family and friends, college football and some much needed time spent with family.

Congress is still out so the news is not as full of itself as it could be.

A NYT article claims Bush has stated that the time to start leaving Iraq is when the commanders on the ground tell him that the Iraqi forces can defend their freedom. I am pretty sure that it has already been ascertained that in order for this to progress to the point necessary their would actually have to be an all out , full blast effort; one which would include initially a whole lot more man power. Is this whole thing not a picture of ineffectual action?

It is getting discouraging.

Hope to get some blog time later this evening.

I'll be out tomorrow due to eating too much more that anything else.
You all have a happy day and enjoy it whatever it is you do.

"Walk the Line" was well worth seeing whether you are a Cash fan or not but especially if you are.

I hope the congress gets it's collective head together durng their two week break, they need to start making sense of things again.

This is not a stunt. This is not an attack on an individual. This is a legitimate question," said Rep. Duncan Hunter (R-Calif.), chairman of the Armed Services Committee, who introduced the withdrawal resolution. He said he was concerned that Murtha's remarks on Thursday had inaccurately sent a message to the troops and the rest of the world that Congress no longer supported the deployment.

I don't yet know what to make of this but if a representative such as Murtha comes out with such a statement I have to give it some credence. They are going to eat him alive though I expect he knew that.

As far as the Atheist sueing to take God off money??? What a waste of time and money.

Boston College and Wake Forest both won yesterday which makes me happy as the season begins. Nice stuff.

Weekend of winterizing the home front.
Thinking about checking out a movie this evening if we can get a babysitter. That's the kicker once you have a got to get a baby sitter, and not just any babysitter it has to be the best babysitter, the one who your child "relates too". Does a two year old "relate"? I don't know, but I'm guessing the babysitter he "relates" to best, as soon as she locks the door behind us starts plying my son with cookies and candy while letting him jump on the beds with wild abandon. That's my boy.

In perspective.

Not a whole lot of time to post this week. I'm putting life in perspective, looking at the over eighty- seven thousand dead post earthquake in Palestine.

Life is short in many cases.
Enjoy it.

Weekend Times.

Carolina over Florida.
Spurrier Faces His Old Team, and Promptly Turns the Table
This pleases me to no end.

Graham if you stop by congrats on England over Argentina.

I'm taking the weekend off and readng no newspaper reports on politics.
Maybe it will all go away and be perfectly respectable by Monday.

True True Lies

The elections turned out pretty much as we had hoped.
Kansas, I just don’t understand that state.
I admit to having never set foot in that state and don’t want to offend anyone from that state but what gives?

Pennsylvania at least the people in Dover have woken up and stated their case. Good for them.

Arnold….what can I say, you were really good in the Terminator, and I really liked True Lies because Jamie Lee was nice to look at. I think there is a chance that they would go for a few more sequels.

Judith Miller retireind from the times, not unexpected but damn I woul dlike to see that severence package.

When it it become so damn cold?

I'll try again.

Lunch break and here I am.

Awaiting the news of all the votes today. It’s being hailed as a day that will mark the political climate. I'm not so sure. There's Arnold of course and his situations and then that loony in Virginia that the president is supporting. Let's see what happens.

It also looks as though it will be hard to get this trial of Hussein's going; all the killing of lawyers isn't helping. I bet they end up moving it.

This past weekend was spent with my family and enjoying some incredible weather but tonight will be the start of raking up the leaves. This is the first year we have owned a house with any significant acreage and I can't say I'll looking forward to cleaning up two acres of leaves so I'm currently looking in the classifieds for help with that and considering some kind of compost pile. They look good when other people do them anyway.

I am afraid to try to add links right now so I think I'll wait until blogger has fully recovered from whatever illness it had the other day.

Template messed up

For whatever reason blogger destroyed my template. I have no idea what happened; I had not touched it. I had to change the template because half the template disappeared. I am going to try to add the old links and will have to figure out the rest later.

Trouble with Blogger.

I've been having trouble periodically posting comments and entries.
I just know this post will go through because it will be short and have no content.
I have a busy week so hopefully will be able to post something later on.
If blogger is working, which is always the question I guess.
