Life’s Little Mysteries

Another one from the inbox… 

 How important does a person have to be before they are considered assassinated instead of just murdered?

Why do you have to "put your two cents in"… but it's only a "penny for your thoughts"? Where's that extra penny going?

How is it that we put man on the moon before we figured out it would be a good idea to put wheels on luggage?

PC Christmas

For those of you that were offend by our “Merry CHRISTmas” yesterday… We’re sorry.

Not really, but for those of you that are overly sensitive here is a PC Holiday Greeting: Please accept with no obligation, implied or implicit, our best wishes for an environmentally conscious, socially responsible, low-stress, non-addictive, gender-neutral celebration of the winter solstice holiday, practiced within the most enjoyable traditions of the religious persuasion of your choice, or secular practices of your choice, with respect for the religious/secular persuasion and/or traditions of others, or their choice not to practice religious or secular traditions at all. We also wish you a fiscally successful, personally fulfilling and medically uncomplicated recognition of the onset of the generally accepted calendar year 2006, but not without due respect for the calendars of choice of other cultures whose contributions to society have helped make America great. Not to imply that America is necessarily greater than any other country nor the only America in the Western Hemisphere. And without regard to the race, creed, color, age, physical ability, religious faith or sexual preference of the wishee. PS: If you ARE offended by this whole Christmas thing, We — as a matter of personal social conscience — will thoughtfully take any and all Christmas presents off your hands. Simply contact us via our email or text the word “Gifts” to 101909 and we will send you information on how to ship them to us.Thanks Sarah

Those Dear To You

We have another excellent FWD. This one really makes you reflect on what’s important. And let’s be honest — it’s the picture that does it. Anyone can weave a sappy tale about things you love and carnage and such… it takes a multimedia presentation to reach my jaded heart.

A friend who I used to live with in San Diego just sent me this photo of a horrible highway accident near Heidelberg, Germany where he lives. The picture may be kind of hard to take for some of you. If you look closely you can see what appears to be some survivors of the accident still in the wreckage. Although the picture is quite graphic, it makes you realize how quickly our loved ones can be taken from us.My friend stayed on the scene to help and even though he performed mouth to mouth on quite a few of them, none apparently survived. Please open with discretion … and think of the ones you love.

Thanks Sarah

Sharing The Love

GM Roper of GM's Corner sent me a nice note… well… it was a while back — but I've been busy alright!? Anyway, I finally got a chance to return the favor and check out his site and -well- it definately looks nicer than mine, so don't look at it for too long. Remember our site's upgrade is only -176 days away… and that's like really close. GM's site is definately right leaning so you lefties have been warned… Here's a sample from today. I found it pretty funny, but then I live in the South… Question: How do you tell the difference between Democrats, Republicans and Southern Republicans? The answer can be found by posing the following situation: You're walking down a deserted street with your wife and two small children. Suddenly, an Islamic Terrorist with a huge knife comes around the corner, locks eyes with you, screams obscenities, praises Allah, raises the knife, and charges at you. You are carrying a Glock cal .40, and you are an expert shot. You have mere seconds before he reaches you and your family. What do you do? Continue reading
