Fall has arrived. I closed the pool all by myself last week. We will find out in the Spring if I did it properly.
I participated in a panel discussion on Wednesday on the future of Lawyer Malpractice claims. It was mildly interesting and I now have a skirt that is so completely full of smoke that it is coming out of my ears.
Indonesia scored the weather hat trick with an earthquake, tsunami and a volcanic eruption this week. The poor bastards. The Midwest was blown around on Tuesday and Wednesday with wind gusts up to 80 MPH. I have yet to survey the damage to my private forest, but did have to move a limb or two out of the driveway.
This was an interesting article on what they thought was the first picture ever taken of humans. It was not.
Whaddya think about this for a crazy 21st Century American story?
The mujahadeden of Somali is a bunch of Fucktards for executing two teenage girls they thought were spies.
Alexandra Tobias is clearly a Fucktard for killing her baby because he interrupted her playing Farmville on Facebook. OMG.

In the obit department, we have to say RIP to old Danno. New Danno is still booking ‘em.
Enjoy your freedoms and great weekends to all.

From my e-mail:
This isn’t Democrat, Republican, Libertarian, Tea Party, Green Party or Independent; it’s the Right Thing for all parties.
THIS IS HOW YOU FIX CONGRESS!!!!!
Congressional Reform Act of 2010
1. Term Limits.
12 years only, one of the possible options below..
A. Two Six-year Senate terms
B. Six Two-year House terms
C. One Six-year Senate term and three Two-Year House terms
2. No Tenure / No Pension.
A Congressman collects a salary while in office and receives no pay when they are out of office.
3. Congress (past, present & future) participates in Social Security.
All funds in the Congressional retirement fund move to the Social Security system immediately. All future funds flow into the Social Security system, and Congress participates with the American people.
4. Congress can purchase their own retirement plan, just as all Americans do.
5. Congress will no longer vote themselves a pay raise. Congressional pay will rise by the lower of CPI or 3%.
6. Congress loses their current health care system and participates in the same health care system as the American people.
7. Congress must equally abide by all laws they impose on the American people.
8. All contracts with past and present Congressmen are void effective 1/1/11.
The American people did not make this contract with Congressmen. Congressmen made all these contracts for themselves.
Serving in Congress is an honor, not a career. The Founding Fathers envisioned citizen legislators, serve your term(s), then go home and back to work.
If someone sponsors this, they will get every vote in their district…
ONCE JUST POLITICALLY UGLY, SHE HAS TRANSFORMED HERSELF TO MATCH HER SILLY POLITICAL SELF: HER STOCK HAS GONE WAY DOWN…

A friend of mine who works in another department received a phone call from her babysitter yesterday morning. She was informed that her 12 week old son was being given CPR. My friend and her co-worker (who had a car) left immediately. I was told later they were going 115 miles per hour toward the babysitter’s when they received a call that told them to go to the hosptial the baby was en route. They turned around and ended up beating the ambulance to the hospital. Upon arrival of the ambulance, they were told the baby was still unresponsive. Shortly afterward my friend was told her son had died. Devastated, she went to his lifeless body and flung herself over him, crying uncontrollably. She would not let him go, but they managed to get her to let him go. A large group of friends and family then arrived at the hospital, thankfully, and everyone got to see the baby and say goodbye.
We do not know what happened yet. The sitter had just fed the baby, burped him, and laid him down for a nap. When she checked on him again, he was lifeless. She called 911 and started CPR. This is the most heartbreaking news I have ever heard at work.
If you pray, please say a prayer to give strength to my friend, her mother who is also my friend, and the babysitter. It will be appreciated.
It has been a couple of weeks since we had a WIR. My apologies. Just been busy. Well, here we go:
You could take this article about KISS not being inducted into the R&R HOF and substitute RUSH (interestingly the two bands toured together back in the day) and it would still make sense (well sort of).
Frankly an dhonestly, I think this Phillipino man who knifed 5th graders adn their teacher wins FTOW, hands down.
I found this to be an interesting stat. I am surprised that the number is not a whole lot larger.
This looked like a headline more fitting for Halloween.
Soon, our military will be made-up of Iron men.
Do the Yankees have to be in the World Series this year? Not if the Rangers have anything to say about it. We find out tonight perhaps.
I dig this pic of soap. There are more keen micro-pics here.
Enjoy your freedoms and great weekends to all.
