Happy Turkey Day

Happy Thanksgiving to all three of you who read this blog. I hope that you enjoyed the turkey and stuffing. I am in beautiful sunny Naples, Florida for the holiday. I plan on spending the afternoon on the beach with no thoughts other than the sun and the waves. Today the fam and I worked on replacing all the screens on the porch here at the condo. The hurricane that swept through here this summer mostly just got everything dirty. Sand all over the place. even inside of the washer and drier. Everything is tip top now though and thus it is time for sitting on the sand. I hope everyone at home in the ATL and in New England is keeping warm. This year fellas I don't envy you. Snow and now rain it says, sounds like a fun commute.

One last thing, To hell with GEORGIA! Come on Tech, if we can beat Miami we sure as hell can beat those 'Dawgs!!!

Thanks to TV and for the convenience of TV, you can only be one of two kinds of human beings, either a liberal or a conservative.

Does the Mayor have to do homework?

An 18 year old high school student became mayor of a town this election day. I wonder, the Mayor is in charge of the educational system right? Does that mean that he can get out of doing his homework? This is the first time I have ever read about someone winning as a write in vote. Check out the article on channel 6 news.

Teen now Mayor in Hillsdale

Maybe I need to start looking into politics....

Well, thats one way to get caught

Understandable mistake of the week

A police officer was hit on the head by a marijuana plant as he chased a 300lb black bear through the US town of Clarkston, Washington. A woman had tossed the plant over a high fence after mistaking the bear-chasing police team for a drugs raid. A couple have been arrested and accused of growing marijuana.

Found this in the London Times and thought it was funny.
