There's not a nickle's worth of difference, and if you can find the .45, I'd say go for it.

They both go, BOOM, very nicely. Just remember the ear protection with anything more than a .22, and it doesn't hurt anything to use it even then.

Have a blast with it, and props to the prof!

I heard it on today's news, but never made the connection.

How exciting to know and have been taught by a Nobel Prize winner....

American Paul C. Lauterbur raises his glass while being toasted by friends and colleagues in Champaign, Ill., Monday, Oct, 6, 2003, after winning the 2003 Nobel Prize for medicine for discoveries leading to the development of MRI, now relied on by doctors for getting a detailed look into their patients' bodies. Lauterbur, 74, of the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign and Sir Peter Mansfield, 69, of the University of Nottingham in England were honored for work they did independently of each other in the 1970s.

Protester-turned-politician must rid his roof of toilets

10/6/2003

MONACA, Pa. (AP) -- A protester-turned-politican says town officials are trying to flush his campaign by claiming the toilets he's displayed on his home the past four years are a health hazard.

Officials in Monaca, about 20 miles northeast of Pittsburgh, last week sent Tom Suica a letter telling him the 10 commodes on the roof of his garage had to come down because they could be a breeding ground for mosquitos and West Nile virus.

Suica, a plumber and Democratic candidate for councilman in the borough of 6,300, claims efforts to get rid of the toilets have more to do with politics than public safety.

"West Nile? Don't you think that's a little much?" Suica said.

The borough soon rescinded its request that the commodes come down after discovering Suica taped the bowls to keep water out.

Suica began his potty protest in 1999 to stop a bank from building a parking lot next to his home. Suica said the toilets symbolize his view that his neighborhood should remain residential.

Suica has successfully argued in court that the toilets are an expression of his free speech and decorations. He routinely embellishes them on holidays -- mounting antlers on them at Christmas, hearts and cupids on Valentine's Day, leprechauns on St. Patrick's Day and patriotic decorations on Memorial Day.

Looks like the talented WH Pastry Chef has come through again...

The dinner begins with a first course of grilled halibut served with tiny, sweet Cape Cod Bay scallops, lightly caramelized and folded into a risotto. The main course, roasted rack of lamb with wild mushrooms, is served with carrots, beets, asparagus and string beans plus a sweet potato flan. For the flan, pureed sweet potatoes were combined with eggs and creams, baked and then topped with light brown sugar crust.

The desert, titled "The Best of Kenya," features coffee ice cream, assorted pastries and 15 giraffes — one for each table — that are made of sugar, but look like glossy one-foot-tall porcelain figurines. It took White House pastry chef Roland Mesnier about 45 minutes to make each of the tan giraffes with brown spot "It's hand-blown — the same way you blow glass — and shaped at the same time," Mesnier said. "They're all very different because they're all handmade. There's no mold or anything like this involved." link

OMG, did I need that laugh. Kids are driving me nuts and my hormones are still out of wack, so my coping abilities are just about nil.

I'm sure his neighbors are thrilled with his artistic display. I wonder how many votes he'll snare on election day?

Quite a wacky world we're living in.

What makes this so sweet is that Paul is a stroke victim and I see him around campus all the time - it is difficult for him to walk - he shuffles and appears to be in poor health. Each time I've seen him, I've thought, "There goes a great man." It is so nice to see his achievements recognized while he's still on the planet.

One of my other profs recently received the equivalent of the Noble Prize - the Crafoord Prize, given by Sweden to recognize scientific work that is outside the Nobel parameters for recognition. He's also received the prestigious Medal of Science.

The U of I is outstanding in the life sciences (and many other areas). It is great to see the University get this kind of recognition. Everyone always fawns over MI, but IL is one of the greatest state schools in the nation (and continually ranks that way, too.) It also is not a liberal bastion. We just don't have much of a football program. (Arghhh!)

Oh, and I wasn't lucky enough to be taught by him, just lucky enough to be on the same campus as he is.

Close is good enough in hand grenades and education.

Good job, and thank you for sharing this with us.

Cheers.

Watching on C-SPAN.

The young lady holding the giraffe dessert refered to them as "our French pastries for tonight."

Guess the boycott is over.

You can leave your umbrella at home, you won't be needing it. It's 54 degrees at 11:00 pm, so a sweatshirt would be a good idea.

See you tomorrow night!

Guess what guys? I'm meeting lodwick for dinner tomorrow night. He told me if I arrive first, to make myself comfortable at the bar and to order a drink and put it on his tab. I've invited a couple dozen of my very closest friends.

A full report tomorrow night when I return.

50 degrees at 6:00am this morning. Bring your Lady Bug Repelent.

Iowa has been invaded by swarms of Lady Bugs. They're everywhere, they're getting into homes, they get into your car. It's quite annoying, but it could be worse. It could be mice.

Safe Travels to ya, Bud. See you soon.

Keep those Indians and their summer going on...it's almost time to get to Houston, St.Louis, and then the DSM in some white-knuckler puddle-jumper.

Please don't ask for digital documentation of this evening, as Gran and I both are still out of that loop...

Cheers, everyone.

Ugh, those ladybugs. We get them every October, and they're mean! Thankfully, we've finally found a bug guy who knows what to do to them, and last year was the first time I go through innumerable vacuum cleaner bags sucking up a few thousand of those critters!

Massive BARF Alert:

BILL Clinton helped Alan Colmes on his upcoming book, "Red, White, and Liberal" (ReganBooks), after Colmes sent him the chapter titled "Bill Clinton, Our Greatest President." Clinton responded with some suggestions, claiming the Brady Law made it harder for felons to buy guns and boasting how he got more poor kids covered by Medicare. Colmes' book (in stores Oct. 21) also features chapters entitled "Jesus Was a Liberal" and "Conservatives Are Downright Mean." (PageSix)
