Love this Shirt!

I have not blogged since I don't know when. Tried to grow tomato's over the summer. Total cost $104 with a yield of 1 tomato. Would not be able to feed myself! Gonna be heading from CleveLand to NC to Daytona this weekend for a little bike week before the weather turns. See you all there. I'll be the one in denim & leather.

Can and Can Not

Found this quote on a site the other day and thought I would pass it on. Don't know who wrote it - but it is simple and true. Many of these things have been tried before throughout history and proven to be true.

"You cannot help the poor by destroying the rich.

You cannot strengthen the weak by weakening the strong.

You cannot bring about prosperity by discouraging thrift.

You cannot lift the wage earner up by pulling the wage payer down.

You cannot further the brotherhood of man by inciting class hatred.

You cannot build character and courage by taking away people's initiative and independence.

You cannot help people permanently by doing for them, what they could and should do for themselves."

Topsy - Turvy

We are joining the ranks of home gardeners - about $50 bucks later we should have about $4 worth of tomatoes and squash! Less than a week and we have two "maters" started! I feel like man Vs wild - Cleveland! Self sustaining.

Ha Ha Ha Ha - I love this.

I know those of you who voted for Obama will not like this, especially as he starts to make decisions for the country's sake and not to be elected.
Sometimes "Circumstances" cause people to make decisions that are not always popular. I applaud Obama for making the right decision even though it appears that he is turning his back on his supporters. The center picture is a HOOT!!!!
Remember - He even promised all those folks in Michigan that he would get their jobs back if Elected? Really? Did you buy That? Really?
WoW, has it been that long since I Blogged? Really?

If charging my ipod will kill a Polar Bear - what will happen when I plug in my Electric Car?

Recent article from Wackos..........

Environmental alarms raised over consumer electronics
Charge your iPod, kill a polar bear?

Charge your iPod, kill a polar bear?
The choice might not be quite that stark, but an energy watchdog is alarmed about the threat to the environment from the soaring electricity needs of gadgets like MP3 players, mobile phones and flat screen TVs.
In a report Wednesday, the Paris-based International Energy Agency estimates new electronic gadgets will triple their energy consumption by 2030 to 1,700 terawatt hours, the equivalent of today's home electricity consumption of the United States and Japan combined.
The world would have to build around 200 new nuclear power plants just to power all the TVs, iPods, PCs and other home electronics expected to be plugged in by 2030, when the global electric bill to power them will rise to $200 billion a year, the IEA said.
Consumer electronics is "the fastest growing area and it's the area with the least amount of policies in place" to control energy efficiency, said Paul Waide, a senior policy analyst at the IEA.

I am so damn confused .... I don't know where to turn anymore.

A Billion

Think about it!
A Billion Here, A Billion There:

one billion seconds ago it was 1959,

one billion minutes ago Jesus was here,

one billion hours ago our ancestors were living in the Stone Age,

one billion dollars was eight and one half hours ago the way Washington is spending it.

Chinese Police Destroy 14,277 Motorcycles in Efforts to Halt Bike-Based Crimes

Motorcycles don't steal - people steal! Stop the insanity!!
In an apparent attempt to cut back on motorcycle based purse snatchings and other crimes of daring-do, Chinese authorities in the city of Shenzhen have embarked upon a major offensive against illegal two-wheelers.

Shenzhen’s Daily Sunshine has reported that 14,277 confiscated motorbikes were destroyed by bulldozers recently, following a binge this past April of 9532 wrecked cycles. While reports remain sketchy about what actually constitutes and “illegal” motorcycle, authorities haven’t been shy in their crusade, confiscating over 580,000 bikes since a 2003 ban took effect. Currently no bikes are allowed in most parts of the downtown area, and the city has been stopped allowing new registrations of motorcycles since 1998.

Motorcyclists may find those kinds of sanctions more than harsh, but the program has been effective according to the article, which says that motorcycle-based crimes are down more than 58 percent compared to last year. The police have even busted up three “motorcycle robbery gangs” in that time. There’s got to be the makings of at least one Rush Hour script here, right?

I read a post by Sasquatch today about Villains and made me think of my favorite 7 minutes in a movie.
It is when Chingachgook (now Last of the Mohican's) avenges his son Uncas' death at the hands of MAGUA (the Villain). Keep an eye on Hawkeye's awesome rifle work, (who needs multishot guns?) as well as Chingachgook's deft handling of his Gun-Stock Club to render Magua useless. Enjoy!!
BTW - My children studied for all their tests listening to this soundtrack.

Senior Freek'n Citizen???

I am not real tech savvy on the PC and with other web "thingies". As soon as I figure them out, it seems that they are on to the next Tech marvel. (at least I can Blog)

I check out Woot.com, midnightbox.com, and zerodaydeals.com to see what they are offering every once and a while. I have even bought a few electronic gadgets over the past year or so.

I was scanning one of the sites the other day and this description FLOORED me. It referred to my beloved Generational segment as a "The baby-boomin’, pre-military-industrial-complex-era senior citizen" Might as well have called us Geezers while they were at it!!!

I am sure that I or folks my age are not their target audience to start with, but I say that we Boycott DC Fashion. Since I have never really heard of DC I guess they sell this stuff to "Pimple Faced - Wanna be Gangstas - Gold Chain wearin - baggy ASS panted - Punk ass MoFo's - Fo Sho" Wishin they was cool enough to be "Baby Boom'n Bad Assed Biker Boys"

Anyway - here is the ad for a flannel shirt - BTW - Back in the Day we wore the hell out of flannel shirts. Ain't nuttin new homie! To use a Dave'ism ...... pssssst!

Like you, the DC Men’s Cam Flannel Shirt had no idea what an epaulet was until it found itself wearing some. The baby-boomin’, pre-military-industrial-complex-era senior citizens who live next to Cam informed him that an epaulet is for storing your beret when you aren’t wearing it. You mean my beanie? Yes, young man, your stocking cap.
