Posted on 08/22/2010 6:25:43 PM PDT by Molly Pitcher

Good evening!

Fox News reports, Bret Baier specifically, that 0's popularity in Martha's Vineyard has plummeted this summer over last. The measurement: sales of 0-themed t-shirts are way down! AND get this: "Miss Me Yet" Bush shirts are hot!

...Per Fox News...I am NOT making this up!

And WHO was Martha, anyway? Are there still vineyards on the island??

Good evening!

True, but we have lots of work to do between now and then...I have a feeling the time will zoom by, but alas, filled with a great deal of the anxiety we're used to seeing lately.

Chicama Vineyards M artha's Vineyard Island, MA

Gingerbread cottages. Carly Simon. Jaws. Martha's Vineyard is well known as a peaceful, elegant island just off the coast of Cape Cod, Massachusetts. Martin Luther King, Jr spent time in the rosy pink Overton House, plumb in the center of the gingerbread cottage area. The freshly planted grapes - viognier, chenin blanc, shiraz and more - that draws visitors into the quiet interior of this island. And yes Miss Me Yet t-shirts are Hot in the NE worn by visitors from all over the country.

Screw Amnesty is the new hat promoted by WRKO's talk show host, Howie Carr.

Thanks for the links. That history is interesting and I really enjoyed the tidbits about the tee shirts and cap. I love it that the “Miss Me Yet?” shirt outsold the “I vacationed at M.V. w/[Caligula]” shirt. HA!

Nothing to take notice of till all the t-shirt sales fail--except this one...

I’ve read the citizens of Martha’s Vineyard were NOT thrilled and a bit concerned the muslim chose to vacation there. His 6th vacation, this year, by the way.

I grow weary of the constant reference to Obama “inheriting” a recession — If it wasn’t for the financial crisis - he wouldn’t be in office. Remember- he said he could fix it?

Good morning.

Very nice.

It's been raining for two days. The temps are much cooler, too.

We had threats of rain yesterday, but it didn’t happen. Our temps have gone back up. It is too hot to move outside except in the early morning and late, late afternoon.

A week or two ago, I saw our hawk swoop down on something in the backyard. LD was hoping it wasn’t our rabbit (as if we only have one!).

I just now saw that we still have rabbits. :(

I think when the dems took over congress 2 years before the presidential all heck broke loose. Dodd and Frank/Pelosi/Ried/obama and the majority democrat party began pushing through bills which which began this financial crisis.

I wish we’d get some rain. Our grass crackles when we walk on it, the ground has 2 inch cracks in it. The birds aren’t even singing, it’s too hot. Yesterday was 105 degrees. Beanie spends 99 percent of her time indoors. These have truly been the dog days of August. I’m waiting for September and hopefully rain.

So we’re bigots, huh? Fine with me. She’s a part of the radical Islam that murdered innocent people are we bigots because we’re onto her and husband’s reasons for wanting to build their vicotry msoque. I mean, just exactly where do all the peace loving Muslims live in that immediate meighborhood who want to pray to Allah 5 times a day at that particular mosque? It’s a victory shrine, and we know it and now they know we know we know it, so of course we’re bigots. We can’t be American patriots, who will never forget, and who care about our dead and fallen and their grieving families, because that would be too uncool in this day of PC roll-over, shut-up and lie down for all things American and patriotic.

For some reason when I went shopping it appeared to be more crowded than usual. I’m wondering if yesterday’s rain had anything to do with it.

Yesterday, I ordered Tony Blair's new book, based solely on this review...lol.

Blair book is 'love letter to Bush'

The former Labour Prime Minister will shock his party and infuriate anti-war protesters by lavishing praise on his "highly intelligent" and "visionary" friend.

"It is the biggest and most unapologetic defence of Bush and his ideas ever written," said one aide last night.

In book stores September 2, 2010, just in time for 9/11 anniversary, and before November elections...LOL. Democrats are planning to blame Bush for everything. Well have at it. I hope Tony's book is a best seller.

Lame stream media will not write GWB's legacy.

You a reader too??? I love it. Got my civil war books, WW2 books and religious books, guess you can say I am a book worm. My problem is when I start a book I don’t want to put it down until I finish with it. My favorite? ANDERSONVILLE, civil war book, you just can’t put it down, and this book came fram a truly wonderful Free Republic wonderful friend.

I have just got to say it, Alan Combs, Fox and Friends, I just don’t like this liberal jerk....

Yes, like you, I read from start to finish, but I’ve taken to ordering “books on tape” (CD) along with the book for Doc to read. I like the author reading to me when it’s quiet at night. My eyes get tired. After the lens implants I had two years ago, when my cataracts were removed, my eyesight came back to 20/20 without glasses, but I lost my nearsightedness and I have enjoyed reading ever since.

I’ve always despised Alan Homely. We mute him, right along with Bob Beckel and Obama.

Fantastic, lysie!! If nothing else, praise for GWB was enough for me to order the book, but I’ll wager PM Blair wrote an very interesting book that we’ll enjoy from cover to cover.
