The Kentucky Baptist Convention has found a surefire way for getting people through church doors: free guns. The church raffle events combine dinner, sermons and a Second Amendment message.
Oh yeah… Jesus would have been down with this. Baptists are weird.
Mugshot Monday. Okay, technically it’s a styrofoam cup. But it does contain coffee! Cafe au lait, to be precise. Good stuff.
I like standing next to Humpty Dumpty. He makes me look thin.
Checks and Balances don’t work if they won’t even talk to each other
In most of the ground and air vehicles I saw at the WW2 museum, most of the points of human interaction (seats, doors, hatches, cockpits, etc.) seemed very small. I don’t think many modern Americans, including yours truly, could fit in them comfortably, if at all.
Well, it’s time to renew my passport. 110 clams now! rip off…
On the upside, at least I’ll be able to get a new and friendlier photo. The one I’ve been lugging around the world for the last 10 years is very ‘Stasi’, as my sweetie puts it. Maybe I’ll blow dry my hair and wear pastels this time. :)
Turned out my slow web connection was due to McAfee. I removed it and everything is lighting fast again. Now trying the Kaspersky anti-virus that came with the computer, see how that works. So far, so good. It won’t get me my wasted afternoon back, tho. :/
It’s very frustrating to pay so much for high speed internet just to have pages load slower than AOL in 1997.
Work out your own salvation. Do not depend on others.
"Whew, that was close."
"Honey, I’m ho…. *umph* crap… hang on… *erph* dammit…*ouch* almost there… *POP!* Ah! Honey, I’m home! Where’s my dinner?”
Shenanigans, I tell you! I just bought a Sony DVD/Steaming player for my bedroom TV. I spend about $30 more for this one than another one they had because this one indicated on the box that it played Amazon movies in addition to Netflix. (The cheaper one didn’t include Amazon, only Netflix, Hulu and others.) Since I subscribe to both Netflix and Amazon, I thought it was worth it. But when I set it up at home and try Amazon, I get a message “This service is coming soon, Please try again later.” Bite me, Sony. At least the Netflix and DVD player work well. I wonder how long ‘soon’ is?
The inherent vice of capitalism is the unequal sharing of blessings; the inherent virtue of socialism is the equal sharing of miseries.
Don’t judge each day by the harvest you reap but by the seeds that you plant.
