FOX News has risen de profundis to the top of the ratings ladder. The battology from the other networks has people flocking to the conservative news station. Long live the FOX.

Good morning. It’s beautiful in NJ, but on its way to becoming very hot and humid. Wasn’t it only a few days ago that it was in the low 40s here?

Did your mutual funditis go up during this latest Obabama-bubble?

Or are stocks only growing more like a mutual toe-fungus from over stimulous?

Daily, I wail, de profundis
How can one man, a Kenyan, have done this?
The end of a story
Two centuries of glory
Makes our forefathers sad they’d begun this

Your poem sums it up. Or should I say your lamentation sums it up.

The weird thing is most of those who have seen combat aren’t so eager to send others at the drop of a hat.

Gotta go read a few more chapters in the book
“Prostate and Cancer: A Family Guide to Diagnosis, Treatment, and Survival”. Dreary reading for a lovely morning. ((sigh))

As dreary as having O in the White House, would McCain have been any better? I doubt it.

De profundis, it is among us. That’s how a lot of us feel. Well done, Truthy. I saw a duck with her duckling sitting on the side of the trail this humid morning.

Sadly, he wants to wait and see......RME. His brother was just diagnosed with stage 4 prostate cancer. Spread to his lymph nodes and bones. Someone is in denial.

He needs a little more time. It has scared him and why wouldn’t it? Maybe he would be ready to talk about treatment if he got a second opinion?

We have a new refrigerator now. That’s the last of the home appliances to be replaced from those we originally bought when we got married. 16 years ago today.

It is supposed to be partly cloudy and 87 today-it was cloudy and breezy in the woods at dawn, and still is...

De Profundis, Holder pretends
Remorse he isn’t feeling-
Asks the press to have tea
After all his dirty dealing

He wants it all in secret-
They won’t indulge his whim
Why go hear Holder tell them
How to be safe from him?

It was likely a bad idea,
At least on Holder’s part-
For emulating Nixon’s guys
He’s got a fantastic start...

Nope, no fancy extras. No voice commands. Just a refrigerator. Frozen on top, cold on the bottom.

The doctor laid it out, the consults probably won’t hold much of a surprise. The prostate is enlarged making it a poor candidate for radiation. Biopsy confirmed the cancer, so what to do? His answer is to observe, retest and watch. He’s too young for that. His father lived into his mid 80s, his mother is alive and well in her early 90s. He wants to die in his 60s? His brother may not live to see 60. At 56 he has stage 4 prostate cancer that has spread to his bones and lymph nodes. What is this with the waiting? I don’t get it. He has some serious denial going on.

That is the best kind-mine is a side-by-side and I never even hooked up the ice maker or the ice-and-water thing in the door-I never have needed it. Frozen on the left, cold on the right is all I need...

They are doing hormonal treatment for my father’s prostate cancer. He had radiation and chemo for the esophageal area last month.

A crook is a crook is a crook, just more crooked ways. Nixon has nothing on this administration. Nixon didn’t kill an ambassador. He didn’t sick the IRS on liberal political groups. Nixon looks tame compared to Obama. An innocent in deceit compared to O and his minions. As far and as long as the media dug into Nixon, Obama has far more garbage. O is an over achiever in Chicago style government. The media just doesn’t care unless it’s aimed at them. A+++

I love not filling or cracking open ice trays. Remember the kind with the handle, to dislodge the cubes? You have to climb aboard the wayback machine for that one.

We had those when I was a kid. Big metal Westinghouse ice cube trays with the lever to break them apart.

My wife found some similar for sale online, but they were like $25 each.
