Singing the Blues

Feeling down?

This helped me a lot.
There was and will only be one Johnny Carson.
I feel sorry for anyone under 30 who probably never saw the Tonight show while he was hosting

I miss these guys..


I think the lack of Sunshine is finally taking it's toll on me.
I wake up in the morning with pangs of anxiety.
It goes away by mid morning, but I hate that feeling in the pit of my stomach.

Do you suppose it has something to do with the doom and gloom in the news everyday?
Or the fact that the Vikings blew another chance at a Superbowl?
Even though I am a Colts fan I did want the home team to do good.

Yesterday I went so far as to drag out an old Jane Fonda exercise tape and that just depressed me more since we are the same age, but her body is so hot.

I paid for that by limping around the rest of the morning.

So much for that crap.

Right now I am going to curl up and watch Ellen maybe she will get me out of this funk.
Ya suppose a Little Baileys in my coffee might help ?

Now What??

In Minnesota on November 7, 1978, David Durenberger was elected in a special election to complete the unexpired term of Senator Hubert Humphrey over Bob Short who had won the DFL primary.
Democrats didn't like Bob Short.
This is what happen in MA. tonight.
Martha Coakley lost because she ticked off voters when she started campaigning 6 months before Ted Kennedy died.
The Voters think they can beat Brown in 2012, and they decided they would rather take that chance then have her for life.
I hope they know what they were doing.
Now if Congress gets their act together maybe they can still pass the Senate version
of Health care.
Or Obama can produce a new bill and pass it with reconciliation.
Excuse me while I go fix myself a stiff drink.

New Yorkers Beware !

If you know anyone in New York, be sure you send them this video.
I was surprised to hear Harold Fords stands on issues.
He needs to be defeated.

Prayers for Haiti !

I have been so depressed today watching the horrible disaster in Haiti.
I finally had to turn off the news.
I hate donating on line but today I did get a letter from the Red Cross
and my donation will be in the mail tomorrow.
I was happy to see that Politics have been put aside and President Obama has asked Bill Clinton and George W Bush
to lead the US relief effort in response to the earthquake.
I am waiting to see how much money George can get from his friends in Saudi Arabia.
With all of their billions they wouldn't miss a penny.

I have been trying to think good thoughts, but then I heard the comments made by these two Giant Asshole's!

Thanks Keith Olberman for being a voice for some of us.

Can you spell Hypocrites??

Watching the Congress lately reminds me off Junior High school adolescent boys, screaming, mine is bigger then yours !

The latest so called controversy surrounding Harry Reid just shows how juvenile the Republicans can be.
Reid's biggest mistake is thinking anything he would say was off the record.

In a private conversation reported in a new book "Game Change" written by Time's Mark Halperin and New York magazine's John Heilemann

Reid described Obama during the 2008 presidential campaign as a " lightly .
skinned" African American" with no Negro dialect unless he wanted to have one"
Harry Reid's remarks were not racist and it is time for Republicans to quit their hypocrisy.

A few months ago Keith Olberman pointed out what racism really is.

Deep Freeze

I am a Winter person, but even I prefer the temps above 0 degrees.
Ke Sera Sera!!

This past weekend 100's of Homeless stood in line at the few Shelters, waiting to warm up.

St.Stephens Catholic church is full every night and now are ordering special sleeping bags to hand out to those that can't get shelter, They are from China and keep people warm in below normal temps. The staff tried hard to find something in the USA, unbelievable that know one makes them here.

I am not gong to complain about this weather, and I get pissed at people who have warm homes that are whining.

This little diddy is from my sister in law who lives near Lake Superior.

2010 a year for Peace ??

Hubba and I had an early dinner yesterday and then spent a quiet evening at home.
I didn't even have a glass of wine.
I watched a couple movies and then
I watched the ball drop in Times Square.
I couldn't believe all the people who stood out there for hours just to say they were there..
It has never been something that appealed to me.
My dream has always been to be sitting at a ski resort by a fireplace reading.
I don't ski, but I can Chalet with a glass of wine.
I remember some New Years days when I wouldn't be out of bed before noon, and then walk around all day with a
Why does it take us till our later years to get some kind of intelligence?

Next week, my "adopted" niece Sheila will be taking her winter trip to New Orleans.
She works there as a caterer and also as a bartender.
Last year she didn't get to go because she stayed with my sister in law who was recuperating from an illness.
Sheila lived with my Brother and his wife when she was in her teens and has been a member of our family ever since

When she sends me her update in a month I'll see if she will let me post it.
She leads such and interesting life and I love her to pieces.

I hope the next year will bring some kind of Peace to this world and I hope the racist morons will let Obama
lead this country.

Happy New Year
