"Black Friday 1983 vs. NOW - 'People' vs. Animals"

Any Black Friday injuries reported yet for this year?

Useless Information

Did you know:
When the Panama Canal was being built people were dying so fast, at an average of 500 per day from malaria and other diseases they ran out of graves.
So the French bought 55 gallon drums from Cuba, put the dead bodies in the barrels and sold them throughout Europe as medical cadavers which in turn helped pay for the digging of the canal.

Dear Madame Zoltar

Hello, my Chilly Willies.  How are you?  I’m not dreaming of a white Thanksgiving, but I think we have no choice.  Last year, it wasn’t until December before winter unleashed its fury upon us.  The winter solstice is a month away.  This is supposed to be fall weather.  Tell that to the Buffalo residents who received up to 7 feet of snow.  What do you do in 7 feet of snow?  What can you do?  The people must be burrowing tunnels like hamsters.

Our vaunted and god-like Green Bay Packers beat the snot out of the Minnesota Vikings this past week.  Expect more of the same this week when the Packers take on the New England Patriots on Sunday, November 30, 7:25 3.25 PM (thank you, Ms. OKIE), at Lambeau Field.  Massacre them, Packers!

In the Irregular Football League, my Screaming Psychics are still near the bottom of the heap.  I guess that’s what I get for cutting their pay just before the holidays.  Start winning and we’ll start making some money.

Of course, I must say Happy Thanksgiving tomorrow!  Most of you ladies have spent days in preparation for this.  God bless us all and don’t forget to count your blessings.  Turkey and all that are a great part of the tradition, but don’t forget to say, “Thank you.”

There’s just the three of us this year, so I’m not cooking a big bird, just a 10 pounder.  That’s still plenty to get us stuffed and thankful. 

Here’s a personal admission: I can’t stand all of the Christmas music wherever I go.  I find it tedious and tiresome to hear the same old songs over and over.  I think stores and restaurants should go with their regular music programming and then intersperse Christmas songs here and there.  We know what time of the year it is.  We don’t need constant reminders from dunning songs. 

Can we talk?  What about Bill Cosby?  Yes or no?

And what about Black Friday, which is becoming Black Thanksgiving evening?  Are you partaking?  Soon, Black Friday will come right after Labor Day.

That’s it for this week, my loves.  I appreciate all of my readers.  We are all one.

Stay alert for winter conditions and drive safely.  As always, watch out for the children.

Madame Zoltar®

My 6th Week at the VA - Union Grove...

I ended up with a whole new dimension to my job as a Unit Coordinator out at the VA retirement home in Union Grove. Not only am I doing much better (though still room for improvement, trust me), I'm also my own receptionist for the building, and, as if that weren't a good enough in being multidimensioned tasks, I had a young man come in with home made Thanksgiving cards for the Veterans.

So, anyway, he introduces himself as being from Shepherd's College. He asks if I'd heard of that college. I said, as a matter of fact, no. Well, come to find out, it's an actual college in Union Grove, not too far from the VA. It's for special needs adults, and they take in those who need to learn anything from daily living skills to horticulture and culinary arts. Pretty cool.

Anyway, I typed up a nice letter from me on behalf of the veterans and staff. So now, I'm sharing their information in case you know people who could benefit from this college for those who may need extra help getting into the regular world.

And of course, my favorite type of site, Blogger:
Please check them out, I feel like I am some sort of Ambassador. Pretty neat.

To my friends here with the Irregulars, have a very happy Thanksgiving!

"Letter That Inspired Kerouac's 'On the Road' Found"

By JOHN ROGERS Associated Press 

"It's been called the letter that launched a literary genre -- 16,000 amphetamine-fueled, stream-of-consciousness words written by Neal Cassady to his friend Jack Kerouac in 1950.

"Upon reading them, Kerouac scrapped an early draft of 'On The Road' and, during a three-week writing binge, revised his novel into a style similar to Cassady's, one that would become known as Beat literature.

"The letter, Kerouac said shortly before his death, would have transformed his counterculture muse Cassady into a towering literary figure, if only it hadn't been lost.

"Turns out it wasn't, says Joe Maddalena, whose Southern California auction house Profiles in History is putting the letter up for sale Dec. 17. It was just misplaced, for 60-some years."

I know this doesn't mean anything to most of you, but it's wonderful news to me.

I love you, Jack.
