    So, an update on Danny’s fart toy, which he got this morning:

    Congrats on 1st, amk.

    As all of you know, I have little knowledge of FIFA or football (soccer), but I do find this really offensive …


    Hopefully, it’ll intensify Costa Rica’s attack on Tuesday (sorry to any England fans here) …

    • June 21, 2014 at 9:22 pm

      But if it’s true, Bob, that some of the players “had been unavailable for the mandatory pre-tournament tests”, they were asking for trouble. But whether Fifa would treat Brazil/England/Germany/Argentina the same ….. hmmm.

      • June 21, 2014 at 9:32 pm

        Agree with your ‘hmmm….,’ Chips. I does seems odd that they’d wait as long as they did. They could have tested those players before or after their first game.

          As it said in the article

          “Fifa, they say, could have chosen any other time since the squad arrived in Brazil.”

    Happy Birthday Japa

    I’m so proud of my fine Governor who gave a very good speech in Iowa today in support of the 2014 candidates.

    Pity iran didn’t get to draw and ghana didn’t get to win. Still this world cup has been so far about the underdogs stealing the thunder of biggies.

    blog rename suggestion – the O’bamalley diary?

    gov o’malley has really been practicing his speech-making. a noticeable improvement at his iowa speech. i don’t think he’s a natural at that, but he’s getting better, and he’s outstanding in interviews and debates, so overall in good shape (pun intended). he’s been one of the most consistent and vocal supporters of president obama anywhere.

    and just listened to that hillary recording from the mid-80s where she’s talking about her mid-70s case, my god, she disturbs me so much. she shows no emotion or concern about the 12-year old survivor, yet is yukking it up with the interviewer about the horrific case. and what’s with that EXTREME southern drawl?!? i’ve spent a lot of time in arkansas, and she’s far beyond the average arkansas native in her southern accent and it sounds so forced to me. of course sounds nothing like her now. everything she does is phony!

    (i’m still holding out hope senator warren runs though, but would be happy to hit the pavement for gov o’malley so far!)

      Fake southern drawl? Like the “I’m not Tammy Wynette standing by her man” drawl? (As I recall, Tammy got mightily annoyed by the reference to HER song, in talking about Bill’s indiscretions.)

    I was checking out at the local Wal-Mart with just a few items and the lady behind me put her things on the belt close to mine. I picked up
    one of those β€˜dividers’ that they keep by the cash register and placed it between our things so they wouldn’t get mixed. After the young lad had
    scanned all of my items, he picked up the β€˜divider’, looking it all over for the bar code so he could scan it. Not finding the bar code, he said to me, β€˜Do you know how much this is?’

    I replied, β€˜I’ve changed my mind; I don’t think I’ll buy that today.’

    He said β€˜OK,’ and I paid him for the things and left. He had no clue about what had just happened.

    TITLE >>> I’m in a totally different World?‏

    Recently, when I went to McDonald’s I saw on the menu that you could have an order of 6, 9 or 12 Chicken McNuggets, so I asked for a half dozen nuggets.

    β€˜We don’t have half dozen nuggets,’ said the teenager at the counter.

    β€˜You don’t?’ I replied.

    β€˜We only have six, nine, or twelve,’ was the reply.

    β€˜So I can’t order a half dozen nuggets, but I can order six?’

    β€˜That’s right.’

    So I shook my head and ordered six McNuggets

    I too am excited about Governor O’Malley. And since he seems to want to do some campaigning for the mid-terms, this will force Hillary to do the same…

    I recently saw a distraught young lady weeping beside her car. β€˜Do you need some help?’ I asked. She replied, β€˜I knew I should have replaced the battery to this remote door unlocker. Now I can’t get into my car. Do you think they (pointing to a distant convenience store) would have a battery to fit this?’

    β€˜Hmmm, I don’t know. Do you have an alarm, too?’ I asked.

    β€˜No, just this remote thingy,’ she answered, handing it and the car keys to me. As I took the key and manually unlocked the door, I suggested,

    β€˜Why don’t you drive over there and check about the batteries. It’s a long walk….’

    [At the same time I was thinking ‘PLEASE just go lay down before you hurt yourself !!’]

    Okay, NW, these are classics. Ya gotta love liberals – they’re all goofballs.

    (1) If I were capable of more than the “white girl” moonwalk, I’d use this one in real life.

    Julius Sharpe @juliussharpe
    Whenever someone introduces themselves, say, “Oh, that’s the same name as my boat!” then moonwalk away.

    (2) Had a chat with my friend earlier … as she started to tell me a nerdy science story, she gave me the safe word “Cowabunga,” if I wanted her to stop, so this caught my eye. Oh, and, she’s originally from Baltimore. Coincidence? I think not.

    Men’s Humor βœ” @MensHumor
    If she’s screaming “Pineapple, congress, baltimore, spaghetti!,” she probably forgot the safe word.

    Dipping in for just a few moments.

    JAPA21: Happy Birthday! May you continue to be Blessed with love, peace, and joy! Since you celebrated with that grand bundle of joy, you’re off to a great start!

    Chips: We’re still going to need TOD after Jan 20, 2017! You really don’t believe that the #newstainer will cover the post-presidency, do you??? If TOD covers the post, somebody else can helm a blog on the new Dem Pres/administration.

    Nice to see Gov O’Malley’s Iowa speech so well received; for me, IT’S ALL ABOUT 2014! Glad he is on board to help, and that he has PBO’s back.

    Hope to read and catch up later tonight or tomorrow.

    So, I’ve just had a very interesting re-introduction to Roberto Carlos – http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Roberto_Carlos_%28singer%29

    If you read the comments in this YouTube recording (one of a very large collection of YouTube videos of this marvelously talented singer, poet, song writer and exceptionally wonderful person) you will be reading about a certain artist whom I’ve been very fond of for approaching 45 years πŸ™‚

    The full story is very touching, but must remain private.

    bbl … time to prepare some dinner

    If you are still here, do receive my warmest birthday wishes.

    I go for a walk, come back, and Danny destroyed his recent toy. What a boy! Such energy and conviction! He must be a Democrat.

    Perks of reaching 50 or being over 60 and heading towards 70 or being 70 and
    heading to the completion of your 8th decade!
    01. Kidnappers are not very interested in you.

    02. In a hostage situation you are likely to be released first.

    03. No one expects you to run–anywhere.

    04. People call at 9 PM and ask, “Did I wake you?”

    05. People no longer view you as a hypochondriac.

    06. There is nothing left to learn the hard way.

    07. Things you buy now won’t wear out.

    08. You can live without sex but not your glasses.

    09. You quit trying to hold your stomach in no matter who walks into the room.

    10. Your investment in health insurance is finally beginning to pay off.

    11. Your joints are more accurate meteorologists than the national weather service.

    12. Your secrets are safe with your friends because they can’t remember them either.

    13. You can’t remember who sent you this list.

    14. You can say what you think without hesitation or apology.

    15. You can ignore uninteresting people and they’ll simply think you don’t hear well.

    And, never, under any circumstances, take a sleeping pill and a laxative on the same night.

    Chips, I knew deep within my being that you had to be a beautiful soul. I so respect your comments above. The depth of your love, hard work, brilliant mind placed daily into this beautiful place, and the beautiful people that we all have become ;even better angels daily as we continue to support this great president, Thank you, Chips. I love you so very much, and I am so grateful to meet another human being to whom I give deep respect to for being so strong, unmovable, and dedicated to a cause and person who will be known as the greatest President Ever.

    I have very few people in my life that feel a deep respect for, and you are among those few. I am not one to not express these thoughts when I truly believe them, have seen the actions of the person, or just felt a true connection to the person that I would trust my life with them; you are one of those people. I thank the Wells of Humanity’s Best for souls like yours, Chips.

    Good Nite to everyone, and I pray that Amk will have a safe and beautiful trip. We love you dearly. Keep us in your thoughts, dear Amk.

    This beautiful place will Never be duplicated. It is one of a kind just as President Barack H. Obama.
