The Bloom is off the Rose !

I wish that the Media would get off Tiger Woods back.
So he has a temper, and he and his wife probably had a fight.
What married couple hasn't been there.
Everyone can speculate, but since no charges have been filed he doesn't have to explain to anyone.
Slow news week and I'm sure it will end as soon as the Media gets tired or finds someone else to

Tax Exempt?? Not for Long !

I have been busy checking blogs lately.
I was curious to see if anyone was writing about the Conservative Bishop in RI who is feuding with Patrick Kennedy.
Suggesting to him and other politicians not to take Communion because they support a woman's right over her own body.
I haven't seen him scolding Republican Catholics who support the death penalty.
Maybe some rules have changed that I haven't heard about, but I know that my priest ranks that just as high as abortion rights.

In 1960 voters were concerned about electing John Kennedy, they
feared that the church would try and influence his votes and that the Vatican would be ruling from the White House.

The Catholic Church isn't the only church blackmailing politicians today.
Pat Robertson and Jerry Falwell and many others have been doing it for years.

Maybe it is time for the Government to revisit their tax exemption.

What do you think about this?

I am off today to work at a Senior Luncheon, our church is hosting,

I am going to pick some brain while I am there, and see what they think.

Happy 30th Baby !!

Our oldest Grandson is now a homeowner, he moved into his first house last month and Saturday night his mom, our daughter, put together a house warming.
It was also his 30th birthday, his Mom (Linda/runningwoman)looks like his sister and said it didn't faze her to have a son turning 30.
I remember when she turned 30 and I felt the same way at that time, but between you
and me, last night was the first time I actually felt old.
Seeing all his young friends arrive brought back memories of parties past.

But the next time I see a picture of George Clooney and my heart beats a little faster, this too will pass.

David has two younger brothers, identical twins, both married and home owners.
One is father of 7 year old Amalia our red headed Princess.
The Twins have a striking resemblance to Matt Damon, though they think they are much better looking.
It is funny watching them banter back and forth, like two little roosters strutting around the room,
playing the conservatives while trying to push our political buttons.

I told them they will never be able to rock my boat,because I know I'm right and my general message to them is "I don't care who you vote for, educate your self and
just vote.
I'm proud of my boys because they care.

The house David bought was an estate sale, a 90 something lady that moved to a nursing home.
He removed all the drapes and curtains to get the "old" smell out of the house, I assume it was a dusty, musty smell in the drapes, they probably had not been cleaned for sometime.
It needs a little TLC , I am sure the previous owner was unable over the last years she lived there to do much deep cleaning, but over all the house was in very good shape.
Luckily David is an Electrician, because the house wasn't wired for the oven the previous owners had installed in the kitchen.
He took care of that and it is working fine now.
I assume they took the original stove and replaced it with a cheaper one.
He plans on ripping up all the carpeting and refinishing all the hard wood floors.
The basement will get redone into a large recreation room, a room waiting for many games of pool and darts.
A nice fenced back yard for his St. Bernard mix Bitsy to run in.
I think the lady who lived thee would be happy with the new owner.
He is the right person for this house, because there isn't any thing this kid can't do

The boys are also are Sportsmen and
I regret that my dad died way too young unable to see those hunting, fishing, genes pass down to his
great grandsons.

David like my dad lives for fishing, and in fact he said before we left the house Saturday night, "I'm going fishing tomorrow if my minnows are still alive."
I noticed a keg in the Kitchen so doubt if he left very early

That's My baby !!

Mad World!

I am here but have been so busy and haven't been able to check in on every one.
I will soon.
I worked a funeral Lunch today for a 90 year old sweetie.
She would have been so proud of the send off her family gave her.

When we got to the church the main counter had pans of Chicken Breast's in plastic bags thawing out.
There had been little confrontation with our leader and the lady in charge of the dinner tomorrow night about the possible contamination.
But we were informed to keep our paws off her chicken.
She moved it to another counter and put a sign on it "Do Not Touch."
and left.
She was coming back later to refrigerate it.
Boy I hope the dinner goes well

So what does youtube have to do with anything? Nothing really,
I just can't wait for Adam's CD to come out :)

Hearing Voices?

I am very nervous about the month of November, probably because it is the anniversary of JFK's assassination.

It seems to bring out the nutcases and they are in prime form right now.

Yesterday the shooting at Fort Hood and today the attacks in Orlando.

Both cases show men who were despondent over something that is going on in their lives.
One because he didn't want to go to Afghanistan and the other who had lost his job and was in bankruptcy and had just given up.

But why do they have to take innocent people with them, and what is the difference between what they did and a suicide bombing in the Middle East?

Yesterday Crazy Michele Bachman encouraged her rabid followers to revolt.

This supposed Christian woman who claims that God speaks to her and
is stirring up hatred every time she opens her mouth.

I was once employed at St.Peter State Mental Hospital.
there I met a lot of people like her,
they were all diagnosed as Schizophrenics.

Can't anyone put a muzzle on her before there is a tragedy we will never recover from?

Don't forget to Vote !

I am off to the polls to vote to raise my taxes.
The only thing on our ballot is a school referendum and
I always vote for the kids!

Wish I was in New York so I could vote
for Bill Owens in New York's 23rd district.
I want see Sarah Palin and the rest
of the Tea Bagger's with egg on their face

What a coup it would be if the Democrats won this one.

Watch how the Glee leaves "F" news !
