    THE FOLLOWING IS BASED ON ACTUAL EVENTS...... I have been on vacation, or as they say in England, "Drinking A Lot". I spent a day in The City Of Lights which is, of course, Spokane, Washington. It was their annual Lilac Day Festival where they celebrate, well, Lilacs. They have a parade and a car show and lots of fragrant bums, no, Lilacs. The bums are more pungent than fragrant. The parade was quite enjoyable. They had at least 150 Rodeo Queens riding their horses in the parade. Every small town around Spokane must have a rodeo and by logic,...

    There is a keen Kennedy-like vigor to Joe Biden that overwhelms any room. As was once said of Theodore Roosevelt, he, too, wants to be the bride at every wedding and the corpse at every funeral. Unlike President Obama, who speaks in interviews with Hemingway-esque sparseness, Biden rambles like Thomas Wolfe, painting a robust picture of an ever-changing America where coal miners will soon be working in clean-tech jobs, gun-safety laws will be tougher and China will be reined in by the White House from poisoning the planet with megatons of choking pollutants. Never before have a president and vice...

    While recently assuring that election night is going to be rosier for Democrats than most people think Biden had this to say about the alternative to Democrats growth of government and previously unachieved trillion dollar deficits "They are going to look at what the Republican Party is really offering -- more of the past, but on steroids..." ....Ummmm....In the past we spent less money, had less debt, and more jobs...even if we put all three of these on steriods the GOP's batting average would be .333 points better than how the Dems are currently doing. I know this is...

    WASHINGTON (AFP) – Vice President Joe Biden brushed aside suggestions on Sunday that Democrats will suffer big losses in November midterm elections, vowing that Barack Obama's governing party will "shock the heck out of everybody." Speaking on the ABC News program "This Week," Biden dismissed prevailing wisdom that Democrats, 17 months into Obama's transformative residency in the White House, would suffer a drubbing at the hands of salivating Republicans. "I don't think the losses are going to be bad at all," Biden said. "I think we're going to shock the heck out of everybody." Biden said he was "confident when...

    Stimulus has been 'an absolute success,' says VP Biden By Michael O'Brien - 06/02/10 05:06 PM ET The Obama administration's signature stimulus program has been an "absolute success" so far, Vice President Joe Biden said Wednesday. Biden, who heads up the administration's effort to implement the $787 billion American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA), said the legislation will have saved or created between 3 and 3.5 million jobs before the end of 2010. "An absolute success," Biden termed the stimulus during an interview on "Charlie Rose" to air Wednesday evening. "We will create over 3.5 million or save over 3.5...

    TOKYO—Japan's leading toilet maker Toto is offering free repairs for 180,000 bidet toilets after wiring problems caused several to catch fire, the company said today. The electric bidet accessory of Toto's Z series caught fire in three separate incidents between March 2006 and March 2007, according to company spokeswoman Emi Tanaka. "Fortunately, nobody was using the toilets when the fire broke out and there were no injuries," Tanaka said. "The fire would have been just under your buttocks." The company will repair 180,000 toilet units manufactured between May 1996 and December 2001 for free, she said. A manufacturing defect is...

    High-Tech Toilet Rinses and Warms Bottoms By MICHAEL LIEDTKE, AP Business Writer 59 minutes ago SAN FRANCISCO - Scott Pinizzotto is used to the giggles whenever he brings up high-tech toilet seats that rinse and warm people's bottoms.

    The loo. The can. The throne. No one used to discuss how much they spent on their toilet. It wasn’t so much a part of the design, as a functional element of necessity that was a taboo topic. You can flush that old fashioned concept. Today, homeowners are spending thousands of dollars on fancy thrones fit for a king.

    Already flush with cash from selling his online music firm, entrepreneur David Samuel hopes to be sitting on top of another business success: high-tech toilet seats. Samuel co-founded San Francisco's Brondell Inc., which this week plans to start marketing the Swash, a toilet seat that sprays a stream of warm water to cleanse a person's private parts. It turns an ordinary toilet into a bidet, a water-spraying toilet device that is popular in Europe. The Swash 400 is heated and has push-button controls to adjust water pressure and temperature. A self-cleaning spray arm moves forward or back to adjust to...
