WOW!! I finally drove down and checked the place out. I have NEVER seen such a HUGE variety of produce and meat. Goat meat anyone? Cactus? So many different types of peppers you get lost wondering what's hot, what's flame thrower, and what might be easy on my American pallet. After getting the flier for a year, I finally went. I'll be going back. It looks like I'll be doing some new food experiments as the choices were enough to make eating very interesting.
I trade spam emails with a few buddies, including SER. We forward the latest gags and videos and whatever to each other. Often these emails have various things attached to them (advertisements and/or links) that I try to remove, as well as the recipients' history, before I pass them along. Yesterday, I came across this little ditty at the bottom of an email about a completely different subject. I removed it before forwarding the email, but I saved it. I think it's kind of neat and it deserves a blog of its own:
This is funny, but true.
There's always a little truth behind every just kidding.
"12:40 p.m. – Mayor John Dickert is now suing the City of Racine related to the William Bieldfelt civil case. I just spoke with Tom Santarelli, the attorney representing William Bieldfeldt. Civil case William Bielefeldt vs. John T Dickert et al Racine County Case Number 2011CV001078
"To date the City of Racine has not responded to the claim from Mayor John Dickert in the lawsuit. Tom Santarelli stated during my interview that yes in fact Mayor John Dickert has filed a lawsuit against the City. Basically what it comes down to is if Dickert loses this lawsuit he wants to City of Racine to pay for it. It’s also stated that part of the reason this is being done is to try to possibly obtain a new judge, because of the way the current judge has ruled so far."
Speech mannerisms of the Droop Drawer Set. Like, I'd rather listen to a Valley Girl like. It kind of gags me with a spoon to read those words and like, the words are usually right after a moronic post. At least a Valley Girl has like, a tan, ya know? I'm just sayin....
"(06-22) 17:23 PDT PHOENIX -- A man who flies US Airways in women's skimpy clothing, including little more than undergarments at times, said Wednesday that he does so to make business travel more fun, and complies with employees' requests to cover up - though they rarely ask.
"The 65-year-old Phoenix man, who spoke to The Chronicle on the condition that his name not be published, said he was unaware that a photo taken of him wearing ladies' blue underwear and black stockings at the airport in Fort Lauderdale, Fla., on June 9 had thrust him into a debate about racial profiling, travelers' security and appropriate airline attire.
"The man said he works as a business consultant and flies several times a month as a preferred customer on US Airways. He's flown in scanty female clothing for several years and has put on a sweater or pants the few times an employee has asked, he said.
"'It has never been my intent to put people in a situation where they feel uncomfortable,' the man said during a phone interview. 'I try to respect other people's opinions. As long as my dress is not indecent from a legal perspective, and so long as the airline does not object, I have the right to wear what I wear. And others have the right to wear what they want to wear.'
"The photograph of the white-haired traveler at the Fort Lauderdale airport showed his exposed mid-section and thighs, and was taken by a passenger who said US Airways employees had ignored other passengers' complaints about his apparel.
"Six days later, a college football player at San Francisco International Airport allegedly refused a US Airways employee's request to pull up his sagging pants, sparking an argument that led to his arrest.
"That man, 20-year-old Dashon Marman of San Francisco, was booked on suspicion of trespassing, battery and resisting arrest, but prosecutors have not decided whether to charge him.
"Marman's attorney, Joe O'Sullivan, accused US Airways of racial discrimination for requiring his client - who is African American - to pull up his pants, while allowing a white passenger to fly 'in his underwear.'"
I don't think they should let this guy fly in ladies' underwear publicly, but if that's the way they want to run their airline, who am I to say? But then it does seem seem hypocritical to bust a guy for sagging pants.
Hello, my water lilies! How are you? Did you survive last night’s storms? There was plenty of thunder and lightning and rain. And there’s supposed to be more on its way. Oh my. I guess that’s the price we pay for our summer warmth. Summer storms can be beautiful to watch, but they can also be destructive. I hope that all of my dear Irregulars and everyone else is OK.
I don’t know if any of you noticed this story on the Racine Uncovered website, but I feel that I must comment on it: "Porn Star to visit Racine". I urge Ms. Cherokee D’Booty to please stop degrading herself for the perverse pleasure of her sick audience. And if she must do it, then please do it somewhere other than Racine. Did you see that poster? Oh dear. Oh my. Oh dear, oh my, oh dear.
Ms. D’Booty aside (if that’s possible), I must admit to a little apprehensiveness over the approaching three-day 4th of July weekend. I fear that some people will display their “patriotism” by making one big binge out of it. Please, if you are inclined to party hearty, please remember to have a designated driver and maybe even a designated babysitter to control you if you get too rowdy. They could be one and the same. In any case, everyone be careful, but have a great time. The 4th of July events in Racine are something we all can crow about.
The upcoming weekend in Racine is no slouch, either. Once again, I’ve posted a screenshot of events posted on the Journal Times website at “Your guide to summer fun in Racine County". That is a wonderful public service that they provide. Out of all of the events, the one that sticks out to me is the Armenian Picnic. Mmm, yummy good!
I look forward to seeing my friends again at next month’s JTI gathering. Senor Zanza wants to meet all of you, especially Mr. OrbsCorbs in order to allay his fears about Senor Zanza’s intentions towards me. You must promise to behave, boys. I don’t want any fighting over me. Tee-hee.
Thank you dear you for visiting my blog today. I love the company. I enjoy your input. I feel your thoughts. We are all one. The JTI is only a website to some, but to me it is alive and well. Thank you, thank you.
Try to keep your powder dry, my dear Irregulars, in the days to come. As long as it rains during the week and not on the weekend, most people will be happy. They say it’s impossible to make all of the people happy all of the time, but that’s because “they” haven’t tried Madame Zoltar’s® Joy Juice, with my secret ingredient, Happinex™. Gambrinous!
"(Reuters) - This sleepy village nestled in the heart of vast farmland in China's eastern Zhejiang province hides a deadly secret.
"A step into the homes of any of the farming families here brings visitors eye-to-eye with thousands of some of the world's most feared creatures -- snakes, many of them poisonous.
"Cobras, vipers and pythons are everywhere in Zisiqiao, aptly known as the snake village, where the reptiles are deliberately raised for use as food and in traditional medicine, bringing in millions of dollars to a village that otherwise would rely solely on farming.
"'As the number one snake village in China, it's impossible for us to raise only one kind of snake," said Yang Hongchang, the 60-year-old farmer who introduced snake breeding to the village decades ago.
"'We are researching many kinds of snakes and the methods of breeding them.'
"In 1985, Yang started selling snakes he caught around the area to animal vendors. He soon began to worry that the wild snakes would run out and thus began researching on how to breed snakes at home.
"Within three years, he had made a fortune -- and many other villagers decided to emulate his success.
"Today, more than three million snakes are bred in the village every year by the 160 farming families."
Sorry, didn't go to the top. I wasn't going to wait in line for FIVE FRICKIN' HOURS!
SANCTUARY! Otherwise know as Home of the Fighting Irish.
Visiting this choked me up a little. After WWII, a postage stamp was issued with a picture of American soldiers, specifically the 101st Airborne marching under the Arch. My father was somewhere in that picture.
This is a tomb believe it or not. And as big as it is, there is only one guy buried there, and he was a little squirt only 5 foot something.
This was taken in the district were all the ritzy perfume shops are located. You could pass a 20 megaton SBD there and no one would ever notice.
The palace at Versailles located about 20 miles from Paris. It was King Louie's "hunting lodge".
Ah....The City of Lights....... The schmucks that started waiting at 9 in the morning are probably just getting to the ticket window when this picture was taken.
I just want to wish all the Dad's a Happy Fathers Day. I hope they all have a wonderful day.
My dad has been gone for about thirteen years now. I miss him so much on the Holidays. He was very strict with us but I know how he just wanted the best for us. There was only my older sister, myself and my younger sister he had no boys. My son was his his boy and sometimes my son could do no wrong with Grandpa. I know my Dad is watching over all of us and right now I know he would really like my boyfriend very much. I know how much my Dad loves us. My Dad would give the shirt of his back to help someone out. That was just how he was. He would do anything to help his kids out or his Grandkids out. He was a very special man I miss him and I love him very much.
My ex father in law is a very nice man. Even though I am divorced from his son he still considers me part of his family. I am so thankful for that because I still consider him a father to me. I know he loves his kids and his grandkids very much. He had just met my boyfriend last month and he has excepted him into the family also. He sees how much my boyfriend cares and loves my kids too and knows he is there for my kids and he really likes that.
My boyfriend's Dad is a very nice man. I can see when I am at his parents house that yes he was a strict dad but he loves his kids very much. I also can see he would do anything he can to help them out. I remember at Easter I was sitting there and joking around with his dad. I really like my boyfriends dad he is really nice. When my boyfriend and I started seeing each other his Dad was always really nice to me.
Now for my boyfriend he loves his son and daughter very much and he would do anything he could to help them out. He told me he made on promise to God that is he would always be there for his kids. He is also there for my kids too and I love him for that. When we first met he told me he would never push my kids away and he has never did that. We have been together for a year and he is a wonderful father to his kids and mine. I could not have asked for a better man to be with I love him so much for everything. When my kids call me the first thing he asks me are they alright. I can tell you this he worries, cares and loves both of our kids very much.
I want to wish all four Dads a Very Happy Fathers Day and I love all four of you Very Much!♥
As summer is getting closer to the mark, I've been finding myself hitting rummage sales and thrift shops, anywhere I could buy music for real cheap. One of these stops, was at at a blogging friend RWWackoStu's rummage sale in Sturtevant. There I picked up Oranges and Lemons from XTC. Those who don't know XTC, it is a band that is best described as New Wave meets the psychedelia pop of the Beatles' Sgt. Pepper's and the Beach Boys' Pet Sounds with a twist of REM. Sounds different don't it? It is. Oranges and Lemons is a record exploding with details, while sonically rich and filled with immaculately crafted songs.
This afternoon, my girlfriend and I stopped at the library to check out the book sale that they were having there. Not only we picked up some books and video cassettes for dirt cheap, I picked up a dozen albums for a buck. Two of these were for the Southern prog rock band, the Dixie Dregs. I've heard of these guys before and I was familiar with the guitarist Steve Morse who played for Kansas and Deep Purple. The Dixie Dregs is a complicated band. Mostly instrumental, the Dregs employ a wide variety of sounds to the listener. It's Southern rock with a violin player and a keyboardist. Kinda like an instrumental version of Lynyrd Skynyrd meeting with Kansas, Yes and bluegrass. Hard to explain, yet I like it. To make our day, we ran into OrbsCorbs on the way out.
The band I've been digging SOOO much lately is Badfinger. Although my Badfinger tapes have been silent for the past few years, much of the resurgence was due of interest in john's Rock Roots blog. As I pulled my tapes to listen to, I remembered what I was forgetting-a Beatleque like band with strong catchy hooks and crafty lyrics. Anyone can sing along to their songs! Anyways, Badfinger suffered dearly due mismanagement of the band. Once recording under the Beatles' Apple Records label, the band fell under hard times when Apple Records went under. Unable to secure a new label, the band went under. Because of the financial issues, guitarist/vocalist Peter Ham committed suicide by hanging, followed by the baas player Tom Evans years later. A damn shame, These are f#*king good! If you love the Beatles, you'll like these guys!
What a creative idea! Joanne Ussary bought a used Boeing 727. She paid $2,000.00 for the plane. It cost $4,000.00 to move and $24,000.00 to renovate. (She has a LOT of wood and specialty windows for $24,000! I want her carpenter!) But not bad for a $30,000.00 investment... The stairs open with a garage door remote and one of the bathrooms is still intact. There is a personal Jacuzzi in the cockpit. The Boeing home is featured as part of a collection of creative conversions. It has a spectacular view! (I wonder how much the land with this view cost!!!) WOW!!!
