What It's About

Welcome to my blog! I ruminate on random thoughts rattling around in my brain. Subjects range from reality TV to current events and everything in between. Whether you agree with me or not, I welcome your comments. God gave you the ability to think for yourself, and this country was founded based on the right to have your own opinion. Who am I to question that? Hope you enjoy! And, if you like to shop on the internet, or have always wanted to try, please feel free to click on one of the banners on the left.

Gapses in the Synapses

Some random thoughts:

  • Happy to see the tax cut take effect in my last pay check. Wasn't much to it, but it was better than going the other way;
  • Glad to see the US stand up to the pirates. All I could think before it happened was, "There's a reason the Marines sing about the shores of Tripoli." Have to give President Obama props for that;
  • Who cares if the president gets a dog? Cared less about Millie and care even less about Bo. Guess it beats bad news all the time, though;
  • Wonder if the AI judges really wanted to save Matt or just didn't want the veto to go to waste;
  • Loved Survivor tonight! Most suspenseful vote that wasn't the final vote ever;
  • Looks like Deadliest Catch is going to have another great season! (Like I suspected anything else?!) Sad to see Phil watching the Cornelia Marie leaving port without him;
  • Is it any surprise the the top 5 songs on VH 1's "100 Greatest Heavy Metal Songs" were all written before 1991? (5. "Enter Sandman" - Metallica; 4. "Paranoid" - Black Sabbath; 3. "Whole Lotta Love" - Led Zeppelin; 2. "Back in Black" - AC/DC; 1. "Welcome to the Jungle" - Guns 'n' Roses)

A preacher was riding his bicycle down the road when he passed a boy sitting beside a lawn mower. The boy said, "That's a nice looking bicycle. Would you trade it for this lawn mower?" The preacher thought about it for a moment and decided to make the trade. When he got home, he pulled and pulled on the rope but the mower wouldn't start.

A few days later he saw the boy riding the bicycle. He mentioned that the lawn mower wouldn't start. The boy asked, "Did you cuss at it? That thing won't start until you cuss at it?"

The preacher said, "Why, I'm a man of the Cloth! I don't curse and it's been so long since I said a curse word I wouldn't even know how to say one!"

The boy replied, "Just keep pulling on that rope. It'll come back to you."

Have a great day!
