let it snow, let it snow, let it snow...
Are you the craziest person on your street, I am, and I love it. I have a lot to learn about riding in the snow, when it is coming down really hard like it is today it is hard to keep your head up, I will have to figure out eyewear so I can just keep pedaling, also it is all so fresh I was intimidated a little about going very far away, but I had the layers just right. Not cold a bit.

Goodnight Mr. President...
So today was Gerald R. Fords funeral, you likely missed it. I watched most of it. That is weird,maybe, I watched Ronald Reagans too. I think of myself as a witness to history, and I like to think I always have been. I like to think that is the way my Dad made me.
My Dad was in broadcasting, and he was the best, he could have made it in the big time, what a voice, but he did not want to leave his hometown, when it got to the point where his career was going to take him from his hometown he quit that job and started his own radio stations.
But mostly I wanted to tell you about how cool it was to watch the news with him, I am an avid news watcher, I watch way more than I need to because I like to get it from different angles, I read news too, again way more than I need to. I remember Watergate, I remember the 38th president, that he was not elected and people thought we should have an election, and I recall the Mayaguez, I remember him falling and bumping. I remember he seemed decent even through the T.V. which of course G.W. just is greasy and smarmy in comparison. I remember asking my dad what the heck he was thinking when he pardoned Richard Nixon, didn't he like being president, didn't he want to keep his job, and my dad who as a news man could be really critical of people who make the news saying,"he knows what he is doing, and he is still doing it, because we just cannot go on like this, there is just nothing left for it", I thought he meant the cost of continuing to try to bring Nixon down even further where he was already, maybe he meant that the country needed to move on. Anyway, it seems sweet now that he did it and knew what it meant to him and he did it anyway. I think I will keep a kind thought today for him.
a lump of coal...
Several people who have previously professed to being a fan of mine, have said that I am going to get coal for Christmas, FINE! just make it a good piece.
<<< like this one.
I am orginally from WV. they have lots of coal there, and they do fun stuff with it. I tried to find a teddy bear which is what I recall from being a kid and living there, but all I could find that I thought was cool was this elephant.
most days I am a card carrying heathen...
but sometimes not so much, you can get me stirred me up. this guy
did, and when I say this guy, I mean the pastor they quote in that article.
Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays, Pray for peace people and the guys who fight for it. Please remember millions of muslims do NOT participate in jihad. Thats all I have to say about that.
tag your it...
ok so apparently I have been "tagged" person to blame can be found here
So the rules of the game were to list six things that most people do not know. This list is epic with me, but I tried to play nice and here is what I came up with:
1.best vacation -- the October 1997 storm we had a great time.
2.I was in boston on 9/11 and there was obviously no real report of what it was like there on any of the news channels. Marshall Law is really scary.
3.the person I consider to be my best friend in lincoln probably does not know it, and do not ask if it is you, it is not.
4.And not to rip off CVO but I beleive in aliens and ghosts too,
aliens, the universe is too big to think we are alone,
ghosts, the spirit of a human is jsut too sophisticated and complicated an entity to think it is bound to the earth by flesh, that is just too primitive of a thought. I think some people hear from them, but they are not on tv, they probably prefer to keep what they hear to themselves.
5.I can be beyond fastidious about things, but I will eat hot dogs from a street vendor cart, there is just something about them, they are very tasty, that is not to say that I will not still descriminate, I will, the actual person serving the hot dogs can put me off of the idea, but if they are clean and tidy, I will have one. And I will not tell you the rest of the list about the things that I am fastidious about, I am not going to tell you.
6.I have a cousin that went to trial with jimmy hoffa.
who to call out, JK, Lt
, emory, adrian
, and KimC
...tag your it.
