Nothing much this week.

I thought the lawn mowing was over but I had to do another pass just to crush up the leaves. We don't bag them; we just crush them and let them sit. That's what happens when tow city kids moved to a two acre lot in the country - what used to be the country that is.

Pelosi won't pick Hastings to run intel panel
Speaker has not disclosed her choice, but it's unlikely to be Harman

A significant predicament for the incoming speaker.

I'm not sure I want the head of my intelligence committee to have believed we were standing up to evil.

“Do I think what we're doing today means we're going to war? No. I think we're standing up to evil,” Harman said when the House voted to authorize Bush to attack Iraq in 2002."

Do we fear the blue dogs?

Nothing else from here this week, business, and more business and
I'm grateful for that.

Post Turkey Day

First, happy blog anniversary to Alice. May there be many more.

We had a good holiday and I worked most of today but ventured to the ice skating rink, and my son had his first ice skating experience. The rink was pretty empty because everyone was out shopping.

I am an average skater and really need to work on my triple toe loop, no one seemed to care especially my son; he had a good time and fell less often than his father.

Good way to work off a meal.

Try it.

Happy Turkey Day

Had to do this before I pass out on the couch.

Hope you all had a Happy Thanksgiving.




For getting me into this blog thing, very therapeutic.

Dinner was great, it’s raining, we are all full and there were only a few minor arguments about religion and politics.

Time to sack out.

Happy Thanksgiving.

Happy Thanksgiving to all.

Enjoy the weekend, your family, and your friends.

Red Red Wine

Reading about the key ingredients in red wine which increases endurance just makes me want to down a few bottles.

I think we will be drinking red not white with out turkey this year.

My wife does not cook and we are having a large group for dinner; she has decided she is going to cook this year because she wants to play. ;(

I'm in shock and have nothing further to say.

I was disappointed on the decision regarding Murtha. Old Abscam...

Rainy Day.

I started this, then the post disappeared into blogger hell.

WASHINGTON, Nov. 16 — House Democrats chose Representative Steny H. Hoyer of Maryland as their majority leader today after a bruising fight that cast a cloud over the party’s post-election celebration.

The storms are raging here; it's raining cats and dogs. We are under a tornado watch until this evening and a severe thunderstorm warning for a while longer.

We have family coming in next week, for the holiday. I can't take the time to travel this year, my business is new and I have too much that needs to get done during the holiday. Instead we are having out of town guests.

I took an accent test at Shayna's site and I came out Southern. I don't speak with much of a southern accent at least not that I notice, I did do my undergrad in the south but I am not from there. In the state I currently live in the accents can be southern or northern depending on where you are but people, not from here, tend to think people in Maryland have a bit of a southern drawl.

Pia has another podcast and a new picture blog.

I borrowed this link from the Liberal Avenger.

That's it for me.

A marketing consultant's noon break.

The blogger beta is killing me, so remember my wordpress blog - the same thing but at wordpress. Link on the side.

As if these folks have not had to endure enough.

Tiger Woods finally loses Hate to see him lose but if he doesn't lose once in awhile the other children are not going to want to play with him.;)

Shayna has baby pictures and a creepy boss.

does a bitchslap, a term used by the library man , of some guy who moderates wordpress codex forums and looks for women while doing it. Read it and you'll see why he doesn't have a chance.

I choose Murtha.

Do I get a vote?

I will miss him.

Rest in Peace.

You know what you got to do.

Post Halloween sugar crash.

I hope you all had a good Halloween.

Not enough Snicker bars here, my son had more fun passing out the candy to the olde kiddies latter in the evening than he did obtaining it.

U.S. Site Suspended for Posting Nuclear Documents.

The kid next door tells me he could probably make one. Think I should move?

a href="">Quote from Rollng Stone

I’ve actually got a lot of sympathy for Ted Haggard.

You head a 30 million strong coalition of born-again Christians. You’ve got a standing Monday phone date with the White House. You get second billing to _the_ James Dobson on “The Battle for Marriage” Simulcast…

But you buy meth from a massage-giving homo-gigolo, one time!, and everyone turns on you like you’re some sort of two-faced demagogue.

Seriously. What kind of world are we living in when our moral leaders can’t take the edge off with a little crystal and some deep-tissue homoeroticism?

I wish my last name were Jones. I could use a vacation.

Brings to mind, "Me and Mrs. Jones, we got a thing going on,"

Wonder if I can find that old CD.

I won a big arguement with my wife years ago when she insisted Al Green was the artist behind the hit "Me and Mrs Jones". I won, it was Billy Paul.
