Heating Up the Global Warming Summit...

As the Global Warming Summit in Copenhagen gets ready to kick off, we get word that Mayor Ritt Bjerraard has sent out postcards to Copenhagen hotels asking them not to arrange prostitutes for conference attendees.

The girls will not be given the cold shoulder quite so easily, however. In an effort to turn up the heat, they are now offering free sex to anyone who can produce the conference ID and one of the postcards.

Rumor is that negotiations will bog down and make this a VERY LONG meeting!

UFO hotline or Afghanistan funding?

"The Ministry of Defense says that the phone service and an associated e-mail address were taken offline earlier this week, and said Friday that 50 years of UFO sightings had not revealed any evidence of alien life or threats to the U.K."

It took 50 years to realize this? Holy shit - I thought I had problems dealing with reality sometimes!,2933,579326,00.html?test=latestnews


You don't have to live in the U.S. to know that FOOTBALL IS KING!

Four for Fridays

Hello Everybody! Well, I just learned that my folks are going on a trip to Cancun, Mexico. Is that something? It inspired me on this weeks questions about vacations.

1) When was the last time you took a vacation?

2) Where was your favorite vacation spot?

3) Where would you like take a vacation to?

4) Where DON'T you want to go?

Thanks! Enjoy your weekend!

A Question for You

As I'm coming up to my 100th post on my Odds and Sods blog, I've been mulling over a new header. I could use a fresh start and I want to think positive, so I need your opinions.

This is the photo I have presently on my blog. I took this picture at Laguana Beach, CA, on one of the happiest days of my life. Those days are over now.

This one I took at Wingspread a month ago. It's beautiful pic, but it kinda reminds me of the winter that follows autumn. And I hate winter...

This one my mom sent me through e-mail. It looks nice, but I would rather use my own pics.

What do you guys think? Any suggestions?

Politically Correct My Ass....

I think someone pooped in my Oatmeal....

How many things have we lost due to “Religious groups, political groups, ethnic groups? Here is a few a can remember!

The Frito Bandito
Aunt Jemima
taco bell dog
Golden Books little black sambo

I know there is more...

This does not even include the words we are not suppose to say any more....grrrrrrr.!

Muppet Rhapsody

Can there be any doubt that we have hopelessly lost the ware on drugs?

Homeless Folks

The other day I was pulling out of our local grocery and saw a clean, cut 'homeless' young man...I handed him a ten and drove away. Someone told me that he probably went out and bought beer and cigarettes with it. Made me start thinking afterall I keep asking each grocery store that I patronize if they have gift cards that prohibit alcohol or tobbaco products. Nope...that would be 'discrimination!' What the hell...I would gladly donate a card if I was assured that the recipient could not purchase booze or tobacco products. Am I being unreasonable? To me, these are not the necessities of life...

Are We Losing Our Good Stink?

Viagra, if it lasts more then 4 hours contact a doctor. Bullshit call Guinness you’ll be a hero!

Then there is Extenze, makes it longer and you’ll last longer.

Well now, there is
Pheromone Advantage

Our cultural habits can wash away, distort or hide our natural pheromones with frequent bathing, detergents, antiperspirants, etc. So should we not take a bath/shower for a few days?

How many days can a person go without before he or she begins to smell repulsive? What a dilemma.

So now you can be clean and still get your good stink on!

Oh my, what next?

Road trip!!!

I just read MC's party invite to Jacksonville, FL,

A Christmas Card

Food for thought..

OK, it's either food for thought,
or thoughts of a very over tired mind...
either way -

If someone, or many someones, tells
you that you're crazy, do you...

A. Try to prove them wrong

B. Not hurt their feelings by proving them wrong,
but rather, fully enjoy letting them be right??

What do you think??

The results are in!!!!

The Big Picture Hubble Advent Calendar

They fine folks at the Boston Globe are doing another Hubble Space Telescope Advent Calendar. It started yesterday will feature a different Hubble image each day until December 25th. Here is the first image

This is NGC 2818, a planetary nebula. It is star that ended its life and shed off its outer layers. Our Sun will end its life as a planetary nebula.

Be sure to check back each day for the new picture.

House for Rent

Attention JT Irregulars: Please check the email which you used to register here. Why Not's parents have been the victim of an irresponsible tenant and now have a house up for rent. I sent all of us a copy of the ad for the home, 2 stories with 2 bedrooms. If you know of someone responsible who is looking for a house to rent, please forward the ad on to them. The house is near Racine Lutheran High School.

Dear Madame Zoltar

Hello, my oscillating oranges! How are you? How was your Thanksgiving? I ate and ate and ate, and then I channeled hungry people so I could eat some more. There are few leftovers after a Zoltar feast; some have even reported missing fingers, amongst other things. Our wonderful, delicious, adorable Packers did it again, right on the holiday, too, to give an even greater glow to the events of the day. Thank you, you assorted millionaire hunks of beefcake. Now ravage those Ravens!

It appears that our weather is finally going to take a turn for the worse in the next few days. Although freshly fallen snow can be a beautiful sight, the gloomy skies and short days of winter often have a depressing effect upon me. I feel dull, listless, and drained of energy and desire. That is why I invented new Zoltar Zing®, an energy drink containing extracts from the roots of ancient Romanian amphetamine trees. Just a couple of sips of Zing® and you’ll be ready to work a forty hour week, in two days. Just say, “Zing® me!”

No missives from the masses, no voices in the crowd.

Christmas is one of my favorite times of year. I love the decorations and merriment. I recently passed through downtown Racine in the late evening, and it was all aglow. It’s lovely to have a commercial district with a personal touch. Most of the stores and restaurants and taverns are unique, one of a kind, with local owners. They care about their businesses and how they cater to the public. It’s a beautiful time of year to stop in downtown Racine and savor some local flavor. Christmas in Racine isn’t right without a visit there.

I also like the Kiwanis Christmas light display at the Racine Zoo along North Main St. So beautiful, so compelling. I even remember back when the Wheary lights were on the Wheary home, causing traffic jams on North and South Vincennes Circle. Now I’m dating myself. Oh my. There was ice skating on the zoo pond then, too, and the men had just beaten the dinosaurs back into Lake Michigan for the final time.

One of the things that I miss the most at the Zoltar home at this time of year is the fragrance of a real Christmas tree. For safety reasons (i.e., Junior), we have an artificial one. Real trees are expensive, messy and need maintenance (sometimes just getting one upright is a challenge – the more I think about it, the more they remind me of men), but that smell was part of the tradition when I grew up. The aroma of those resiny oils smelled like magic in my nostrils, enough magic for a fat old Santa Claus to leave real presents for me under the tree. Nowadays, I gather a few clippings of a spruce or pine from here or there, and bring them into the house for my own variety of Christmas aroma therapy.

I think what I really miss the most, though, is that magic. Every year, I try to recreate or re-find it, but even with my powers, I fail. It appears that it is not mine to make. If it cannot be made,Christmas magic must be a by-product of something else. I’m not sure what that is yet, dearies, but I think that doing good for others may be part of the process. It may well be that the more we practice Peace on Earth and Goodwill toward Men, the more Christmas magic that we generate. I suspect that if everybody practiced it, Santa would have presents for all of us.

Thank you so much for reading my blog this week, my pilgrims. I’m relieved that all of you survived Black Friday. Remember to cover your mouth if you cough or sneeze, and wash your hands often. Take lots of vitamin C.

Forward your flotsam and jetsam to

Have a wonderful week, my friends. Dyspepsia!

Former Miss Argentina Dies after Butt Implant Surgery

I don't mean to hog the blog today, but I figure that Irregular minds would want to know about this:

I can just see it: Bewildered, she arrives at the Pearly Gates where St. Peter is standing. She says, "But, but..." St. Peter replies, "Yes, that's what did it."

Sorry, the death is a tragedy, but I gotta wonder about the vanity that compels someone to have a butt implant. I've been told all my life that I have no butt. Since I can't see it, and I don't have any trouble sitting on it, I don't give a damn.

Is the President a Vulcan?

"WASHINGTON — He shows a fascination with science, an all-too deliberate decision-making demeanor, an adherence to logic and some pretty, ahem, prominent ears.

"They all add up to a quite logical conclusion, at least for 'Star Trek' fans: Barack Obama is Washington's Mr. Spock, the chief science officer for the ship of state.

"Obama's Spock-like qualities have started to cause him political problems in real world Washington. Critics see him as too technocratic, too deliberative, too lacking in emotion."

I hadn't thought about it until I read the above, but he does resemble Spock. Maybe that birth certificate was doctored after all.

There are photoshopped images of Obama-Spock all over the web. Live long and prosper!

Cold Weather and Taking Chances

Does anyone else think people take more chances when it is cold out side then when it is warm?

Today, a group of teenagers ran across the street in front of me. Each one of them had heavy coats on and their hoods up and the wind was blasting down the street.

First thing, which came to mind is I do not blame them. am I sure they wanted out of the cold/wind as soon as possible.
