David Letterman at Taco Bell

I've been pretty down the past few days and to be honest, I didn't think anything could make me laugh, but this did! The ending is GREAT!

I know we've all seen this, but...

I was very impressed with how President Bush handled this situation.
Notice: he waved off his Secret Service Agent who came up to him immediately after the second shoe was tossed. He did this as if to say: 'Let's not make more of this than it really is.. I CAN HANDLE IT'! Handle it he did, and rather nicely!

I Betcha' Never Considered This....

Prop 8 - The Musical" starring Jack Black, John C. Reilly, and many more...

Joe the Plumber 'Appalled' by McCain

LMAO *eyeroll*

This would be comical if we all didn't already predict it. Poor Samuel the Republican Plant, he's missing his 15 seconds of fame! *double eyeroll* Oh, and to think, there were some who felt BAD for this guy because he was "thrown into the spotlight". He was exactly where he wanted to be, which is why he's right back in it still today!!

Will I be buying his hogwash being sold as a book... um NO! What a joke! =)

Here's a few comments left on this AP video (for the record, these are indicative of ALL the comments. No one is supporting this idiot):

"Joe the plumber needs to get a real job and and a life.... Sarah Palin? Joe needs a brain transplant..... I'm sure not buying his book or his music.... Go to Nashville and make an ass out of yourself again...... Joe is the one that appalling just cause we have to look at him... Bum needs to get a JOB!!!!!! and SHUT UP because no one cares what he has to say!!!!!!!" ~ xenafan33

"I wished McCain had kicked him out at the next station when he threatened to leave the bus. Now that would have made some nice headlines." ~ lacountess

"People still care what this douchebag has to say?" ~ jufu999

"Aren't his 15 minutes up? Boycott that chump's book." ~ gungagin

"This is all a stunt to get people to buy his Bull shit ass book." ~ puppdog88

"Very good. You're one of the smart people catching on to false news stories or inflamed stories to sell something to the American public. If i see Joe the douchebag's book, im going to set it on fire ..." ~ Landrew120880

"HAHAHAHAHAHA don't burn his book just let him sit in an empty room waiting on someone to come get their book signed... and as he waits and waits the realization that his 15 mins are long gone will set in. And that will do more damage than any fire ever" ~ puppydog88

Traditions with a Twist

(above photo ~ with flash ~ the colors are totally distorded ~ yuck)

Traditions, they often change over time. I've read many a bLog in recent days on this topic so I figured I'd join the crowd by writing one of my own. Besides, Jim wrote me and told me that I HAVE to write a bLog today! He can be so bossy! LOL

Throughout the years I've adopted new traditions. I've taken note of the special things my friends and family have done and chosen to make some of them a part of my life. Ann, for example, serves Chili on tree decorating day. Well, I've never had a special food for that day so this year (and for many years to come), we'll have Chili too. It's not so much the change in our traditions anymore as it is the birth of new ones that keeps me excited this time of year.

Last year I gave a lot of thought to the "gifts" I gave to those I care most about. Perhaps the best gift you can give someone is to share things that are meaningful to you. With that said, a new tradition began...

Typically traditions are passed down from one generation to the next, I choose to take that a step further. I believe we can pass them from friend to friend.

So this year, instead of stressing over finding the "perfect gift", just share a piece yourself. That's all anyone really ever wants!

The Pictures (above and below ~ one with natural lighting, one with a flash): This is a wreath I made over 25 years ago from pine cones that I had collected. As long as it continues to hold together, it will be hung every year (just like it's been hung since the year I made it). Everything on it, including the ribbon, is what I originally placed on the wreath. It's a little worn, but I do believe it's holding up quite nicely.
