King Tut owned a fart jar...........

So our son had a once in a lifetime trip to Philadelphia to see King Tut exhibition yesterday. You wanna know what he bought as a souvenir of his journey to remember his visit?


Put me in the same situation? Even at age 47.....I woulda bought it too, so he gets his sense of humor from me for sure.

I can remember when I had a school field trip to Washington DC in 1972......the first thing I bought when I got of the bus was a peace sign button. They just dumped us off in the Mall and told us when to be back at the bus. 12 years old and totally unsupervised for 6 hours in DC in 1972? Yeah, I'm sure that would happen nowadays.

Went through my referrer logs yesterday and saw a few bike blogs that link to me that I don't link back to.....If you're out there and you want me to put a link to you in my "links" section.....just drop me a comment in the comments section. Even if you don't, I'll try to set aside some time this week to update my links section anyways. There are a few blogs that have had me linked for a while that I haven't returned the favor to yet.

Sorry bout that....I've been kinda busy.

Somebody has a sense of humor.

Not sure what side of the gun control issue y'all are on but..............this is one damn scary handgun. I'd hate to be the doctor trying to put someone back together after they were shot with it.

The Democrats are blowing it. It sure didn't take them long to forget why they got voted into power....I know that one of my readers (yeah, I'm talkin' bout you Darrel) has labeled me a a liberal-I'm totally okay with that.....just make sure you don't label as a liberal Democrat.

............I'm one of those nutcase Libertarians.

This makes me proud to fry stuff for a living.

Sleep is *not* overrated....

I work third shift and my wife works first shift.

I work lots of weekends, she works Monday through Friday most weeks. It's always worked out great as far as getting the kids to school, doctor appointments, snow days or whatever but it's always tough for me to try and adjust my sleeping schedule on my weekends off to be awake when my wife and son are awake.

Needless to say, when I had off this past weekend I felt 180 degrees out of phase to the normal world.

We went for a bite to eat at midnight on Saturday since we all happened to be awake. Our son called up his sister at school from the restaurant and told her what we were up to. She of course was just getting ready to go out with some friends......I can remember those days. I would just skip sleeping and stay up for 2 days in a row.

I'm too old for that shit now. If I miss my 8 or 9 hours of sleep, I'm pretty much useless. I need at least 7 hours of sleep to operate and 8 to 9 hours preferably.

Since it's 3 in the morning as I write this, I'm in a silly here's a couple of jokes.

A rich man died and went to The Judgment. St. Peter met him at the Gates of Heaven and said, "Before you meet with God, I thought I should tell you - we've looked at your life, and your really didn't do anything particularly good or bad. We're not at all sure what to do with you. Can you tell us anything you did that can help us make a decision?"

The man thought for a moment and replied, "Yeah, once I was driving along in my Ferrari and came upon a woman who was being harassed by a group of bikers. So I pulled over, got out my tire iron, and went up to the leader of the bikers. He was a big, muscular, hairy guy with tattoos all over his body and a ring pierced through his nose. Well, I tore the nose ring out of his nose, and told him he and his gang had better stop bothering the woman or they would have to deal with me!"

"I'm impressed," St. Peter responded, "When did this happen?"
"About two minutes ago," came the reply.


A big-city California lawyer went duck hunting in rural Texas. He shot and
dropped a bird, but it fell into a farmer's field on the other side of a fence.
As the lawyer climbed over the fence, an elderly farmer drove up on his tractor
and asked him what he was doing.

The litigator responded, "I shot a duck and it fell into this field, and now I'm going to retrieve it."
The old farmer replied, "This is my property, and you are not coming over here."

The indignant lawyer said, "I am one of the best trial attorneys in the U.S.
and, if you don't let me get that duck, I'll sue you and take everything you

The old farmer smiled and said, "Apparently, you don't know how we do things in
Texas. We settle small disagreements like this with the Texas Three-Kick Rule."

The lawyer asked, "What is the Texas Three-Kick Rule?"

The Farmer replied, "Well, first I kick you three times and then you kick me three times, and so on, back and forth, until someone gives up."

The attorney quickly thought about the proposed contest and decided that he
could easily take the old codger. He agreed to abide by the local custom.

The old farmer slowly climbed down from the tractor and walked up to the city
feller. His first kick planted the toe of his heavy work boot into the lawyer's
groin and dropped him to his knees. His second kick nearly wiped the man's nose
off his face. The barrister was flat on his belly when the farmer's third kick
to a kidney nearly caused him to give up.

The lawyer summoned every bit of his will and managed to get to his feet and
said, "Okay, you old coot! Now, it's my turn!"

The old farmer smiled and said, "No, I give up. You can have the duck!"

I like that one.

I'd weigh 900 pounds if I worked at Google. Maybe not though, some of that food looked fairly healthy.

This family reminds me of this lady. Nothing is their fault and whatever goes wrong.......they want the government to fix it.

I suppose I'm not that much of a coffee connoisseur so I don't feel a whole lot of pain for Starbucks. I can get coffee for 1/3 the price at any convenience store. Tastes the same to me and I don't have to deal with the "tip" jar. Tip jars piss me off anyways, unless you are a waitress, waiter or have a similar occupation.......just do your job and be done with it.

If I have to stand at a counter and wait for you to simply pour a cup of ain't gettin' a tip. McDonald's doesn't have a tip jar and they make more then just coffee.........yeah, I know it sounds like I'm a crappy tipper but I'm not. When I go to a sit down restaurant and I have good service-I tip at least 20 percent and usually 25 percent.

I like cats. Here's some funny ones. Our cat was sitting in my lap looking at the computer when I watched the video, I think she liked it.

I've always wondered what farts look like. Now you know too.

A mugger picked on the wrong old guy. Can you imagine what the muggers last thoughts were?

The pot calling the kettle black.

I work with food everyday.....whenever I go into a fast food place I always look around to see how well it's maintained and how dirty the floors are. You can generally tell how well a restaurant is run by looking at the prep area floor. If no one can take the time to at least sweep up once and awhile, you can be pretty sure they aren't doing any other sanitation either.

Check out this KFC in Now York. I'm proud to say I'm anal about sanitation.....We've had district managers come into our bakery unannounced with other store managers to show them how a donut production area is supposed to look. You can pretty much eat off the floor in my shop.

Has anyone considered that the poor woman has postpartum depression? At least her ex-husband seems to be supportive. I've seen him in a few interviews and he seems like an okay guy

I was looking for something to watch Sunday afternoon beside tractor-pulls when I discovered we now have Versus. Holy crap, I'm actually gonna be able to see some European cycling this year. I'm glad we now have the only channel that carries any cycling, but I wish we woulda had it for the last 8 years when Lance and Floyd were kicking everyone's ass at the Tour. Oh well, I'm just glad we have it now.....

If you're from New Zealand.......this is the site for you. Go ahead and light my ass up if ya want...........I know two guys from NZ-one of them is a great guy and the other one will probably try to use the site to hook up. You know who you are.

Bush doesn't have any skin in Iraq. I'm not surprised.

George Takei has a sense of humor. I love it, life's too short to spend it being a bigot.

I'm not much of a beer drinker, but this is way cool. Maybe they could set it up to launch me my Lipton's Diet Green Tea and I'd be all set.

This ad was banned from Australian TV. (totally safe for work)

Looks like gas is back on the way up.........ride your bike or maybe one of these old Beetles.

Ash Wednesday...........

Got all the mess from Fastnacht Day cleaned up at work. Since we made them all day yesterday, there was one helluva mess when I went to work last night.

Everyone likes to play in the flour but nobody wants to clean up.

Lent is here and lots of folks give something up until Easter rolls around.


Not anything I'm willing to forgo anything until Easter.

I don't drink, gamble, womanize or smoke so I'm just gonna keep it on the straight and narrow just like I always do.


I have a hard time believing this guy is going to get many votes in 2008. I respect what he says, but I don't agree with him. meanwhile, this guy is becoming the black Kennedy. At least when he speaks, it doesn't hurt your ears like Bush does when he talks.

This is a great idea. We use them here at our house, I like them because they don't blow out nearly as often. As the old light bulbs blow out, I replace them with the new style....the fact that they save electricity is a bonus as far as I'm concerned.

She's in rehab. Hopefully she will stay out of the papers for a few weeks and there won't be any mid-air helicopter collisions.....

Heat wave............

I got out of work this morning and thought I was gonna pass out. It was 38 degrees and it felt warm.

I'm so glad another faschnacht day is over with.

I lost track of how many of the greasy little buggers I made but it was a lot.

Since it's going to be so warm, hopefully some of the icepack on our street will melt. I guess the plow guys had their heads up their asses and totally missed out neighborhood last week when it snowed/sleeted/rained and we have a solid 2 to 3 inches of ice covering our street.

Spring can't get here quick enough.

Dumbest picture of the day? It would be cooler if the limo had one of those Tour de France style of racks with 10 or 12 bikes on top. Then it would be cool.

Just finished watching the Daytona 500. Not a bad race, my favorite driver came in 2nd place so it coulda been a tiny bit better. I think he actually won the damn thing, but Martin has too much class to complain.

Somebody please buy me this watch.

I'll be a 76 year geezer when this happens....I hope it misses but gets real close. By the time I'm that age.....I'll need a little excitement.

Till later.

Race day..........

I'm not into motorsports nearly as much as I used to be. I used to watch all the NASCAR races, but I lost interest after Tim Richmond died. Now I will usually watch the Daytona 500, a couple of the short track races and maybe the road course races.....most of the races are commercial infested snoozefests.

When I say I watch them, I tape them and watch them later that day and fast forward through all the commercials. I can watch a 3 hour race in less then 90 minutes. I'll probably watch todays race live but lose interest after an hour or so.......

This poor guy was dead for a whole year before anyone other news-Britney shaved her head. World peace can't be far behind.

3 inches of ice......

My driveway is coated with 3 inches of ice.

Got my van stuck trying to get it out of the garage and parked on the street. Sorry, I don't have any pictures of that, I was kinda pissed right at that particular moment. I've never seen a build up of ice like that before, I shoulda got my lazy ass out there the day before and tried to remove it then.

Hopefully, it will be thawed out by April because there ain't no way I'll be able to remove any of it.....that ice is glued to the pavement.

Once I did get the van unstuck, our son and I went to a couple stores on our quest for a Wii.....we lucked out and found one at Target, they had 2 left.

Looks like a lot of fun, I'm thinking Dan is going to be sore tomorrow morning. You really do move around a lot when you play it. It came with some sports games that look like a whole lotta fun. I'm sure it will be popular at the next family gathering....

Yeah, this is pretty much how it is at our house at showertime........woo-woo.

I gotta get one of these toilets, I like the blue backlighting.

You know what? I call bullshit on Hershey Food. I think they are just greedy bastards. If they want to make their chocolate bars in Mexico....let them sell'em there. I wouldn't mind paying a few pennies more to eat chocolate made in America. The sanitation and HACCP's in a Mexican food processing plant won't be anything close to what we have here in America.

Anna Nicole Smith is still dead. I thnk they oughta have some kind of pay-per-view event were all the potential fathers have a steel cage match.

The solution is simple........make Hello Kitty shoot bullets and it will be legal. You could store your vibrator/gun right here and no one is the wiser.

I bet this guy is fun at family parties after he's had a few beers.

Till later.

I got the night off.......

Since my wife is a nurse, I wasn't surprised when she called and said she worked late and then didn't want to drive 20 miles home on some iffy roads, so she stayed at a friends house. Which means I got to stay home with our son.

Yeah, he's probably old enough to stay home by himself, but if something happened.... I work too far away to get home quickly when it's lousy outside.

Anyways, I had a chance to watch some TV shows I usually don't get a chance to watch. Like American Idol. In my opinion, Simon isn't that mean....he's just being honest. There are some incredibly talented people on the show this year, too bad I will miss most of the rest of the series.

It's Valentines Day.....

My wife told me not to buy her anything for Valentines Day.

Of course, I didn't listen to her.

I bought her some really pretty flowers and a huge bag of her favorite chocolate.

I kinda broke her best pair of scissors cutting off the ends of the flowers so it looks like I'll be scissor shopping some night this week.

I also sent our daughter an e-card, it didn't have a whole lot to do with Valentines Day....I just installed one of those fancy card programs on our new computer and wanted to try it out.

As I type this, it is raining ice balls outside and all the schools are closed. When I was a kid, it had to snow at least 6 inches and be combined with a power outage for school to be canceled. I remember riding my bike to school when there was a couple inches on the ground and more coming down. Those were the days.......

Everybody should read this before they go out to eat.

So much for death with dignity. That poor kid has a snowball's chance in hell of growing up normal.

I don't like much country music, but I like the Dixie Chicks. Not really sure if they are "country" but I am sure they deserved all 5 of the Grammy Awards they received.

This is satire, but it's not that hard to think he wouldn't actually do it if he could get away with it.

Getting ready

If you live in Upper New York State.......the 6 inches of snow we're supposed to get isn't that big a deal. Irregardless, I replaced my 5 year old battery, filled the gas tank up, checked the snow blower and drove into the side of my garage.

I was watching the news this morning and I swear the weather forecasters love to get people all amped up about crappy weather. Of course, since I work in a grocery store....I can get all the bread, milk, eggs, spaghetti sauce and toilet paper I want.

If you've never seen the movie "Scanners" won't get this interview.

Nice cake, but I'm not gonna be the guy that serves the first slice.

It's Fashnacht month........

Where I work, we don't make fashnachts just for one day.......c'mon, I live in the heart of PA Dutch company has us make them for the whole month.

Here a definition of what they are.........

The word Fashnacht literally means “fast night” – the day before you fast for Lent on Ash Wednesday. Faschnacht is spelled different ways because the language wasn’t written, and they are not round with a hole in the center. They are square, which represents the four gospels in the Bible, or triangular, which represents the Trinity.

So two transvestites walk into a bakery...........

First off, let me get this out of the way-I am not prejudiced against any religions, races or sexual practices. As long as your of legal age and what you're doing is at least half-way legal.........I say have at it. As long as you leave me out of whatever you're doing and stay out of my face-It's none of my business.

Having said that, I must have offended the two transvestites that wanted to order a cake last night. After I took their order I said "Thanks ladies".


I guess that sorta pissed them off. I didn't mean any offense by it, heck I thought they looked pretty darn good. Whatever, I apologised for offending them and they seemed okay with it after that. Sure don't wanna piss off any more customers then necessary.

Kinda funny that after a couple of days of single digit temps, a morning when it's 20 degrees feels downright warm.

The heat where I work has been on the fritz for the past few days, not a problem in the's nice and toasty warm.

Somebody slap this guy and tell him that's not what government is for.

Damn, that girl can eat a lot of food.

I don't exactly know the ramifications of this, but I know it's pretty cool.

Nice cab driver, cheap woman, a thirty cent tip? I think I woulda held on to the diamonds for a day or two before returning them.

My wife and I aren't the richest folks but I'm damned glad most of our house is paid for. It's gotta suck for folks just stating out that have to do creative financing. Those adjustable rate mortgages would scare the hell out of me.

Say what you want, but 39 is way too young to die.

I had my first minor problem getting something to work in Vista. I tried to install the software for our 2 month old printer and Vista crashed the installer. Checked on a few forums and found out that all I had to do was plug the printer's USB cord into the laptop and turn the printer on. Vista automatically went to HP's site and directed me to download a patch to make the printer work.

I also got sucked into buying a game that has a demo installed on the hard drive, I love me some Texas Hold'em and they had a really cool game already installed on my laptop. For 15 bucks, how could I resist?

Maybe I need this, my score was 60.

Ridiculous. Hoo-hah??? WTF? Let's just call body parts by their proper name and try not to act like we're all in 2nd grade.

Lots and lots of cat pictures. Our cat is sitting on my lap and watched most of the pictures as I scrolled through them.

First snow of the season was last night.

I wish it wasn't so darn cold out, I like taking hikes in the woods when there is a layer of snow on the ground.

I just like the way it looks.

I also like it when it's in the 70's with a gentle breeze but I'm gonna have to wait a couple months for that, so I'll take what I can get.

I know one thing, my next vehicle is going to have all-wheel van sucks in bad weather.

How awesome would it be to ride around in a full body suit from these folks.

I don't know about you, but I think they got an advertising bargain at 2 million bucks.

I could think of better things to cut besides health care and education funding.

Who spends that much time on the john? Whatever, I entered the contest.

Whenever you motor sticks out of the hood....I'd say that's a bit of overkill.

When I was a kid we used to do some dumb stuff, but fence plowing? That takes the cake.

I haven't had any problems with iTunes. I've had problems getting my podcatcher software to work, I'm sure they'll catch up eventually.

More on global warming. Yeah, go ahead and light my ass up. Actually, I don't really know what to think about global warming, I think we'll know more in 10,000 years.

This weekend I was working with a older client that was totally frustrated with how their e-mail was working. I love helping folks out when the solution to their problem was simple to fix. They were accessing their ISP's e-mail account through the ISP's homepage and they would navigate away from a message they were composing and lose what they had written.

I configured all their stuff to work with Outlook and switched their homepage to Google. I think I spent more time shooting the breeze with them then I did fixing their settings. That's okay with me, I like to yak it up.

More thoughts on Vista plus the usual dumb stuff....

Well, so far I really like Vista. Most of the stuff I use on XP works just fine on Vista. Some of my photo editing programs don't work, but Picasa2 works along with the image resizer utility I use most of the time.

I having a few issues with Media Player 11 getting to play video embedded in certain websites, but I'm sure that will get better as time goes on.

I'm trying out the new Office, not sure if I like it or not but I might end up having to buy it because I'm not sure if the Office for XP suite I have will work on Vista or not.

I'll probably wait until the free trial of Office runs out to see if I can get the old suite to work.

One thing to consider is to not be too cheap when you shop for a new computer. Our new laptop has 2 gigs of memory installed and uses about half of it to run my usual assortment of programs.

Running Firefox, IE 7, iTunes, iPodder, Google Picasa, Norton Anti-Virus and all the background stuff (84 processes combined) takes up 52% of the 2 gigs. Not sure what all those 84 processes are doing, but I'm not gonna tweak anything just get.

Using Ready Boost seems to help as the memory usage stays right at 52% and doesn't spike when I open more tabs up in Firefox. In conclusion, don't even think of getting a new computer with anything less then 2 gigs of RAM.

I bet these are warm.

Hey, this house is a steal at only 75 million bucks. I have to admit-it is pretty sweet.

This is a great idea.

I'm not sure I'm 100 percent on board with this guy, but he does raise some valid points.

An Iraq hero. Make sure to listen to the MP3 at the end.

Here's another one of those slightly off-color jokes.........

Four nuns go to heaven and as they get to the pearly gates St. Peter presides over them and says, "Now usually we ask people here if they have any last sins they want to confess before going before Him, but since you are nuns, you have presumably lived a rather sin-free life. Nonetheless, this is your time to confess anything you have hanging over your head."

So the first nun walks up and says, "Well, I have to confess that one day, while cleaning out the priests' quarters, I walked into one of the rooms without knocking and, well...I saw the priest's penis." Ashamed, she bowed her head and waited for a response.

St. Peter replies, "No problem at all daughter of God, just cleanse your eyes in the fountain of purity and all will be forgiven."

The second nun then steps forward and says, "I, too, have something similar I must get off my chest. You see, while cleaning out the priests' quarters I also forgot to knock, saw the priest naked, but .... I could not resist....I touched the priest's penis." Completely embarrassed in front of her peers and St. Peter, she bowed and waited for her judgment.

St. Peter calmed the nun and replied, "Do not fret child, merely cleanse your hands in the fountain of purity and all will be forgiven."

Before the third nun can step forward, the nun behind her starts to pull her and shove her away, attempting to get in front of her. St. Peter, rather surprised with the nun's actions pleads the nun to stop and explain herself. So the last nun says, "Oh St. Peter, I only wanted to gargle the water from the fountain of purity before she put her ass in it!"

I'm sure most nuns aren't like that......I know the nun that used to run our kids Catholic elementary school sure wasn't. I'm not Catholic and I was afraid of her. She most definitely had the kids respect.

I watched the Super Bowl through the half-time show then went to bed. From what my wife told me, I didn't miss much. The first half was pretty good at least... at least I got to watch all the cool commercials....

Global warming seems to be here to stay.

This movie just wouldn't be the same if Nicholas Cage was riding a bicycle.

Till later.


I bought another computer.

I wasn't intending to buy one sorta just happened.

My wife and I were at Sam's shopping for Super Bowl snacks and as usual, I stopped by computer department to drool at stuff. I saw a little flyer that was promoting a "no interest-no payments for a year" promotion and went up to the service desk to find out some more info.

Turns out I qualified for more then enough money to buy exactly to laptop I was drooling at.

And I have a whole year to use it (and earn money) before I have to pay for it.

Here's the specs..........

Pretty nice for a little less than 1500 bucks.

It's gonna take me a few days to figure out how everything works and get all of our programs transfered over. I'm in no big hurry, so far the initial set-up has been a tad less confusing then setting up an XP box.

It will be interesting to see what works and doesn't work right off the bat, I've heard that lots of stuff isn't 100% compatible yet.

My thoughts so far.....

The Norton anti-virus stuff got an overhaul for 2007, it works way, way, way better then it used to. Totally worth the money.

User Account Control is a pain in the hiney. It was the first thing I turned off. I don't think I would turn it off on a client's computer, but it's shut off on mine for now. Every time you want to do something, it pops up a window to ask you for permission to proceed. I suppose that if you aren't a power user, this is a good idea but it will be a learning experience for folks used to doing whatever they want to.

As usual on a new computer-it's got plenty of "buyware" on it ie; stuff for you to try out and then get sucked into buying. AOL, Vonage, Rhapsody, etc. After setting up the anti-virus software-all that stuff got uninstalled.

More info as I go along.......

Who's going to win the Super Bowl? Beats me, we just like the commercials.....

My father in law is Mr. Fixit.............

Somehow we blew a fuse on the inside of our microwave. I suppose most folks would have tossed it into the trash but my wife let her dad take a look at it.

Turns out you need a specialized set of nut drivers to remove all the access panels to get to the fuse.

Of course, my father in law has that set of tools and had it fixed in 10 minutes. I'll continue to keep his computer running uptight and outtasight and he can come over and fix the stuff I'd probably electrocute myself on.

Sounds like Sony is ticked off about the Nintendo Wii. I'd like to find a Wii to buy, but they are still in short supply. Every place I check has plenty of Playstation 3's.....the fact that they cost 600 dollars with any games included might have something to do with that.

This is spooky.......anybody remember Kojak? Not sure what the camera is looking out of (kinda looks like the tip of a penis).....but it's damn weird.

Just ordered this book. I'm not a dishonest person but it sure will be cool to learn how some of that stuff works. Having Amazon "1 Click" ordering sure is fun.

I'm not sure this video will work if you don't have a Myspace account, but it's pretty cool if you like Hot Wheels.

Tom is gettin' his mean streak on. Princesses don't do well at 330 mph.

Seriously...........If it had been me-I woulda soiled myself.

I'm sure one of my readers will light my ass up for this.........but Bill Gates has a point.

Just to provide myself with a little motivation, I went out and bought a new 17' laptop with Vista Premium so I get familiar with how it works. Now all I have to do is go out and get some business to pay for it.....

The "Look"........

I was listening to some of Bruce Williams at work last night when he started up a discussion concerning the way some kids behave poorly nowadays.

I know when I was a kid and I did something stupid, all my old man had to do was shoot me the "look" and whatever I was doing.....I stopped doing it and behaved myself. Since I work retail, I get the pleasure of dealing with snotty kids from time to time.

All I can say is that most kids that are jackasses have parents that are jackasses. Where do you think they learn how to behave like that?

I wonder if they make underwear with the same feature. That would keep me awake on my overnight shifts.

Red Bull beats the hell out of Cheerios.

I'm fairly absent-minded but nothing like this.

Victory over what? I parked next to a Hummer last weekend and while they might float some peoples boats..........I laugh every time I see one. They are truly ridiculous.

This is also truly ridiculous......My laptop is uptight and outta sight as far as upgrading to Vista Ultimate. I usually have all the self restraint of a magpie in a sparkly things factory but I think I'm gonna just buy another laptop with Vista already on it instead of upgrading the one I have. I can hardly wait to help out folks with failed Vista upgrades......

My neighbor is a captain for American, he knows what all these buttons do. If I had to fly one of those would be a short flight.

Joe Namath is about all I know about football. The NFL makes about as much sense as NASCAR does to me. A bunch of guys in tight pants beating the shit out of each other for 3 hours.....whatever.

I love this guy. Congress needs more ballbusters like him. He's asking some tough questions that have a yes or no answer. Most politicians are incapable of answering in that fashion. Do they teach them that at a special school or something?

There are some new Barbies coming out.

Hate yardwork? This would get rid of that pesky lawn.

I am a podcast junkie. If you have a feedcatcher, this site has tons of good shows you can download as podcasts.

My good friend Hank drinks non-alcoholic beer when we are out on rides. He claims that it aids his recovery. I have no doubt that it does because he kicks my ass on just about every ride we do. I'd like to see him drink this......I like milk and I like beer but I can't imagine combining them's just not right.

The Blue Man Group on global warming. This clip might be old, but I like the BMG. Don't know who BMG is? Click here, here or here.

Good stuff.

Till later.
