Winter Pics of the Lighthouse

The Wind Point Lighthouse

Ice formations on Lake Michigan

More ice formations

The City of Racine in the background.


This one Reminds me of Racine Common Council

I don't know why, but it might be they never ask for imput from the tax payers.

An Old One But Still Funny

Getting A Hairdryer Through Customs...

A young woman on a flight from Ireland asked the priest beside her, 'Father, may I ask a favor?'

Of course child. What can I do for you?'

'Well, I bought an expensive woman's electric hair dryer for my Mother's birthday that is unopened and well over the Customs limits, and I'm afraid they'll confiscate it. Is there any way you could carry it through customs for me? Under your robes perhaps?

'I would love to help you, dear, but I must warn you: I will not lie.'

'With your honest face, Father, no one will question you.'

When they got to Customs, she let the priest go ahead of her. The official asked, 'Father, do you have anything to declare?'

'From the top of my head down to my waist, I have nothing to declare.'

The official thought this answer strange, so he asked, 'And what do you have to declare from your waist to the floor?'

'I have a marvelous instrument designed to be used on a woman, but which is, to date, unused.'

Roaring with laughter, the official said, 'Go ahead, Father. Next!'

Ukraine's Got Talent - Very Cute Children's Performance

"Update: For subtitles click on the triangel in the downright corner of the player. Then choose subtitles on.

"Jurij is 7 and Karina 6 years old :))

"look at the bald judge what face he made during the performance!!! :D"

I watched it without the subtitles. I recognized a few of the words. :)

That's a beautiful performance by the kids. I think he was more nervous than her.

Not sure what he really meant but it always made us laugh.

Dear Madame Zoltar

Hello, my choice chinchillas! How are you? How is your personal economy? Has the stimulus (stimuli?) stimulated you yet? Sales are off dreadfully on Zoltar® brand products and potions. Just when I was about to open up a website on the real Ethernet, Wall Street decided to stop believing the cow poop that they had been telling everyone else. Oh my! I’ve had numerous clearance sales in an effort to get rid of overstock, and all production is shut down. It’s not like I’m a large employer, and most of us are family, but the ripple effect is endless. We cut back, and then those we purchase from cut back, then those they purchase from cut back, and so on. I’m glad that the big banks and insurance companies are doing so well that they are handing out large bonuses (bonusi?) to themselves. Obviously, prosperity is just around the corner. Of all people, I wonder why I can’t see it?

There was an item in the email this week, but it wasn’t a question or comment. It was the image below:

There was also this:

“The Journal Times, Saturday, January 16, 2010, page 7A”

Well, I don’t know what I’m expected to do with this information, but I do feel compelled to point out that if the “SM” who wrote this ad is serious about settling down, he better be sure that wherever that is, it can support him. Tee-hee. As for the age range in his message, ahem, oh dear and oh my! Is that who I think it is?

I may have a touch of the winter blues that I’ve been writing about, my dears. I’m not much motivated to blog about anything in particular this week. It’s not that I’m unhappy, I’m just not motivated. I’m usually on the go all of the time, from consultation to consultation, or overseeing production. Now there is so much down time. Perhaps I need a vacation. Like Donald Duck did in 1940:

That brings to mind one of my favorite skits from that television show, In Living Color. It was called “Men on Vacation:”

That’s my disjointed and diffused blog for this week, my Irregulars. I appreciate each and every one of you stopping by to spend some time with me. Be very careful, it’s slippery out there.

Fax your tax to:

Here’s to all of my friends, Irregular and otherwise. May the light of love shine upon your hearts. Alcoa!

Happy Whatever Day

I want it to be the day I win the Lottery.

Then I could buy a new Labumba mobile!!
Something like this one!!!

You Drive What?

I think the name of the website says it all..You Drive What? Here's a sample.

How did Ser miss this one?

Naked Astronomy

That should pull some search engine hits in! I was catching up on my podcasts today and found that they snuck a new one in my feed. There is now a podcast called Naked Astronomy (from the same people who bring you the Naked Scientists). Fortunately, they put a sample episode on the Naked Scientists have to subscribe to the Naked Astronomy podcast separately.

Anyway, I enjoyed it as they talked about a bunch of different stories including the Plank satellite, the LCROSS impact on the Moon and the Messenger mission to Mercury. You should subscribe via your favorite podcast catcher. Don't worry about the title: nothing obscene here. Just an occasional mild double entendre about observing heavenly bodies delivered with dry British wit...oh, and its free!

Tuesday Afternoon Grin


The Black Bra (as told by a woman)

I had lunch with 2 of my unmarried friends. One is engaged, one is a mistress, and I have been married for 20+ years.

We were chatting about our relationships and decided to amaze our men by greeting them at the door wearing a black bra, stiletto heels and a mask over our eyes. We agreed to meet in a few days to exchange notes.

Here's how it all went :

My engaged friend:

The other night when my boyfriend came over he found me with a black leather bodice, tall stilettos and a mask He saw me and said, 'You are the woman of my dreams. I love you.' Then we made passionate love all night long.

The mistress:

Me too! The other night I met my lover at his office and I was wearing a raincoat, under it only the black bra, heels and mask over my eyes. When I opened the raincoat he didn't say a word, but he started to tremble and we had wild sex all night.

Then I had to share my story:

When my husband came home, I was wearing the black bra, black stockings, stilettos and a mask over my eyes. When he came in the door and saw me he said,

"What's for dinner, Batman?"

Everyone's a Little Bit Racist

In honor of MLK day...wisdom about race relations...from puppets.

Test Time

The following 25 questions are about things we see every day or have known about all our lives how many can you get right? These little simple questions are harder than you think-- it just shows you how little we pay attention to the commonplace things of life. Put your thinking caps on. No cheating! No looking around! No getting out of your chair! No using anything on or in your desk or computer!

The average person only gets 7 right. This is based on U.S. info, so use all lobes of your brain. This can be more difficult than it looks - it just shows how little most of us really see!

Think Test

I have absolutely lost it!!!!

Yesterday, I had a party for a dog....Princess Sable as I call her....she is a wiener dog and naturally, we served HOT DOGS, along with some brats (I have a found many people in Florida who have not had brats properly prepared.....) ...anyway, for your amusement and for my commitment papers, here are a couple of pix of this poor dog.

I have a dream that one day this nation will rise up and live out the true meaning of its creed: "We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal."

I have a dream that one day every valley shall be exalted, and every hill and mountain shall be made low, the rough places will be made plain, and the crooked places will be made straight; "and the glory of the Lord shall be revealed and all flesh shall see it together."2
