McCains Pick, ..Sarah Who??

I am sure that many Republicans as well as Democrats
were surprised at John McCain's choice for VP.
I have a friend who e-mailed me and said

"What was he thinking?"

What he was obviously thinking was,

"If I have a Woman on the ticket, I could pick up disgruntled Hillary supporters"

What he doesn't seem to understand is, most of them are also interested in the issues.
What he probably will do with this choice is bring back the Christian right winger's who only vote for strong anti-abortion candidates.

What else did he do?

He insulted some very strong qualified Republican woman,
Olympia Snowe from Maine
Kay Bailey Hutchenson from Texas
and Elizabeth Dole from North Carolina just to name
a few.

After all the screaming about Obama's lack of experience, McCain picks a woman who has only served as Mayor of a Wasilla Alaska, a city of about 6700 people and was just elected Governor of Alaska in 2006, a state with population of about 683,478 as of 2007.
There are "Cities" with larger populations then that, for instance Austin, Tx
population is 743,074.

She hasn't even served 2 years as Governor and McCain
thinks she is experienced enough?
Give me a break!

The sad thing though, people elected George Dubya twice, so who knows what will happen.

Any thoughts??

You go Girl !!!

This is why I supported Hillary and this is why I am now supporting Barack.
I watched her speech when I got home from the Hospital last night.
She gave me goose bumps, don't let anyone tell you she wanted to be VP
If she had wanted it she would have gotten it.
She will be a power house in the Senate and Barack needs her there.

Tonight it is the Silver Fox himself..I can't wait.

Obama/Biden 2008

I am so pleased that Barack Obama was not afraid to pick a VP that has more experience then him.
This shows true Leadership..

Stress Relief Needed!

I am playing nursey to Hubba right now.

He has been dealing with some guy things.
He was in Hospital last week and they did a procedure,
but it wasn't really enough and now he is scheduled for
Green Light Laser Therapy next week.

It is so strange how things can be put into perspective.
Everything I thought was so important is now pushed to
the back of my mind.

I am posting this Video for myself, any other suggestions for stress relief
are welcome.

Happy Birthday, GiGi!!

Techy Flash here. Gigi has been too busy taking care of a convalescing Hubba to post of late. But you all should know it is her birthday.

She is still 39, has been for awhile now, but not a second older *grin*

Wish her well!


PS: Hubba is doing well, not to worry!

Rush Linbaugh is a Big Fat Idiot

I got this video today from my niece and just had to share.
It is bad enough that the media seems to be so hung up on
every one's sex life or which cute blond is missing
instead of covering more important issues
But this A hole is finding his own sick way to again blame
the woman.
If you remember, when Wild Bills pants came un zipped, old
Rush and many of the other sleazy pundits blamed Hillary
for being too cold, not hot enough, or maybe even she preferred woman??

We all know that it can't be the mans fault right??

Dog Days !

August is a busy month for our family.

My daughter has tried hard to find a day to have
a family bonding BBQ to celebrate all the
August birthdays,
it has been set for the 16th, come rain or come shine!
Hubba's birthday started the month off on the 5th,
followed by


today the 8th, her Twins on the 17th,
Techy Flash on the 19th
and when I use to celebrate mine it was on the 20th.

Forget it, I am trying too.

We also have extended family,
my sister in law and a couple cousins.
November must be a very cuddly month!

Rosie O'Donnell decided to stop blogging
for the month of August.
I can understand why?
Can you imagine if everything you wrote was twisted
and showed up on Tabloid TV.

Tonight the Summer Olympics begin, why in the "H"
the committee chose China is a mystery to me.
I just hope that our athletes can come home
without too much lung damage.
I prefer the winter games, but will watch some of the action
over the next week or so, mainly to see if anyone dares to protest.

September around the corner and then the real campaign season starts

Don't pay any attention to the polls even then.
I have talked to so many of the under 40 group, who only use cell phones.
So the polls don't mean thing.
Sometime over the next couple months,
go down to your nearest campaign office and
give them some of your precious Time.

We need some common sense and less BS in the White House.

If that wasn't enough check this out!!!
Paris is HOT !!

Happy Birthday Hubba !!

On August 5th 1962, we were living in an upstairs apartment in Hopkins Mn.
It was Hubba's birthday and we heard the news of Marilyn Monroe's death.
It is only appropriate that she sings to him today.

Generation Kill !

Maybe in hindsight I shouldn't have started watching HBO's

Generation Kill"

The book / mini-series is based on Evan Wright riding with Bravo company in Iraq.
The true story of the highly trained Marines of First Recon Battalion; following them through the first 40 day...

Now I'm hooked .
Why is it bothering me now ?

Because I just found out my grandson has been sent to Al Asad Air base in Iraq.
for at least the next 6 months.

He is a Marine Sgt and supposedly that gives him extra privileges.
Well tell that to my brain.
I am afraid that the kid I know stationed over there, won't come back
the same emotionally!!

Watch this little snippet and then tell me I'm crazy..!!
