Here’s one to get your toes tapping. Combining some soaring, hard-rocking Moog synth (from before New Wave made keyboards too gay for a hard rock band), an awesome bass line, dual vocalists and some cowbell.

How in the hell can jay Carney wake up in the morning and face his day in anything resembling a skeigh manner?

I used to work for a septic tank company. No, I wasn’t a poo pumper, I installed new systems, but at least that job was nowhere near as crappy as the one Jay Carney holds.

Too bad old Cooch just decided like yesterday to try to make this an Obamacare referendum. He should have been on that point weeks ago.

When we lived in the middle east, it was a dry country, so we had our own still. The American men over there were mostly engineers and their book, The Blue Flame, showed us how to do it.

Stills were passed on as the engineers came and went.

It DID help that the local Saudi towns sold sugar in 50-lb bags and had foot tall CANS of yeast. Remember, if you buy yeast here, it comes in teeny packets.

Getting our young Americans to know ANY vocabulary beyond what is ABSOLUTELY essential for the Internet is a daunting task.

I was in Saudi recently and the guy I was working with there was from Egypt. He told me that everyone who moves there suddenly becomes a chemist with their own home “experiments.”

We had our first “hard frost” yesterday morning. Enough to need to warm up the car while I have breakfast.

The Saudi ARAMCO company and the Saudis in general will ignore the booze making as long as there aren't any Americans/foreigners STUPID enough to sell it to the Saudis.
There always are. When they are caught, and they always are, the wives are sent home and the husbands land in a Saudi jail. Not fun.

The reason they are always caught is because some American or foreigner (non-Saudi) rats on his fellow countryman.

Xsbaby and xshub were delegates to the repub convention this year and Lt gov candidate ew Jackson who is a black minister had a tremendous group of supporters that won him the nomination over other candidates who were expected to win. So we are hoping that he has strong support elsewhere in the state. Just saw that the dem candidate (white)refused to shake his hand after their debate.

I found the coolest tool, a tick twister. Buffy has been plagued with ticks and this tool just twists them right off. Good thing she got the Lyme disease vaccine. She had 2 ticks in 5 days. Gross things.

I like Head East, and that is a favorite driving song...

Obama’s minions, when “pressed”-
Yes, the wordplay is intended-
By the media, who are not skeigh
About what they have defended

You can keep it, period-means
Except on Tuesday when it rains
I’m reminded again of Clinton,
And that blue dress with stains

Axelrod is even out once more
Like some nightmare deja vu-
He hasn’t learned loud barking
Isn’t distracting me and you...

Ticks used to be bad here 5-6 years ago, but they have been scarce in recent years. Good thing, too-I’m convinced that sometime in the past, Husky girl robbed another Husky of some coat, because she seems to have three of them...

The bathroom heater is in season now.

she has that as her FB status. One of her fiance’s hockey teammates, an AHOLE, lib dem union goon and OBNOX on stilts, made some reply to the status that neither candidate was good but that Cuccinelli is a dirtbag nutball radical. Well xsteen hates this guy anyway, so this was the cherry on top. Her preferred manner of dealing with him is to pretend that he and his gf do not exist. As xsteen put it, her friend colleen LIVES for *ing with people like this and so she jumped on it with both feet. When xshub and i saw it, we were instantly inflamed and xshub said if that guys name shows up on the final wedding invite list, i will X it off. See, this is why i cannot be on fb, i would see this stuff and go insane. Though i guarantee that if i was on FB, my lib coworker and other lib friend, Cheryl, would not be so rude as to post something incendiary like that. xsteen feels this exposes him as the AHOLE that he is. It’s funny, bc it also prompted a HS friend, Gonzaga grad, whom she hasn’t spoken to in eons, to private message her and ask if it was true that Terry was at the metro, bc this guy works for Ken and is responsible for this area. He thought it was interesting that Terry needed to be out there doing that. Also he says that reports are of low voter turnout in NoVA so far, which gives some hope.

We were talking about backyard chickens this morning with a friend at the park. She has them and was dropping off a chipmunk she caught in a humane trap. Now I really want chickens again!

I love the way your husband thinks! I am fortunate to have grown up in a very conservative area so my friends are almost all conservative.

the majority of my friends are also conservative. i have spoken of the two outliers, maia and cheryl, both coworkers. One is black and the other is Jewish, so they do have reasons for their views and are always very respectful of our differences.

Lmao, someone left the door to the shed open, and when I went in for the leaf blower, i wound up shadow boxing with a chipmunk.
Got the blower, threw some fruit out side to get him to leave.

To me that means Liberal trumps Jewish, hence the adjective is incorrect.

That’s how it is here. We have a vibrant Orthodox community, but a bigger American Liberal community.

Even if i were not in Phila for a weekend with the inlaws this past weekend, i would not have seen it bc i am NOT watching anything political. As it is my stomach is in knots today over the VA election and i know i am very likely to be disappointed once again.
