So, affordable housing is a priority of communities, right? Well, if you hear their rhetoric, it sure is. But then there’s this: 309 wonderful condos. Starting at only $250K. Going to $2M. For an area whose median income is $53,000. (from Inside Business) (I’m depressed now to know that I only make 64% of the […]

California Legislature votes to limit school textbooks to 200 pages. Another “great” moment in education that will only end up with edited text books, or multiple volumes to increase costs. (found via Rocket Jones) In other Educational news, we now have confirmed who “Deep Throat” is, and no, it’s not LINDA LOVELACE. The man who […]
It’s been a long day, but I can’t just go off and not post. After all, I have you three all my readers to think about. (1) Hot chicken fat does not feel good when applied to the palm of the hand. Decided to use the grill pan and grill up some delicious chicken thighs. […]
…happen to you. Hattip to Revog for sending it along…
I read the following on CNN.com this morning… WASHINGTON (CNN) — Vice President Dick Cheney said Monday he was offended by Amnesty International’s condemnation of the United States for what it called “serious human rights violations” at Guantanamo Bay. “For Amnesty International to suggest that somehow the United States is a violator of human rights, […]
A man appears before a judge one day, asking for a divorce. The judge quietly reviews some papers and then says, “Please tell me why you are seeking a divorce.” “Because,” the man says, “I live in a three-story house.” The Judge replies, “What kind of a reason is that? What is the big deal […]
A fellow decides to take off early from work and go drinking. He stays until the bar closes at 2am, at which time he is extremely drunk. When he enters his house, he doesn’t want to wake anyone, so he takes off his shoes and starts tip-toeing up the stairs. Half-way up the stairs, he […]
And attributed to many people: Don’t be a thermometer. Be a thermostat. Don’t just measure the environment. Change it.
Today is Memorial Day. Remember those you love. I’m off for some retail therapy in the ‘Burg. Talk to everyone later.

…about comptuers like Roxette Bunny™ does about all the bears. They’re everywhere! I just put PR’s new Dell up on the rack. Time to get software loaded on it and stuff. After all, he misses not being able to play his arcade games. 🙂
1. People who have children should really be responsible for them. I’m sorry, but I don’t want your brats bouncing around the booths in a restaurant where I’m trying to dine. Either teach them how to behave in public, or keep them the hell home. 2. How did all these computers accumulate around here? I’m […]
Well, Mother Nature is showing off with lots of heavy downpours, but that’s a good thing. Tink and I went thrift store-ing today … I found about 12 Cds (for 1.99 each) that I didn’t own, but not much else. It was interesting, however. It takes a lot to set Tink off, and the lady […]
Had a wonderful dinner last night, of tasty riblets from Applebee’s. Sometimes, you know JUST what you want to eat; last night was one of those rare times.
On a farm out in the country lived a man and a woman and their three sons. Early one morning, the woman awoke, and while looking out of the window onto to the pasture, she saw that the family’s only cow was lying dead in the field. The situation looked hopeless to her-how could she […]
and that’s a good thing. In case you’re wondering what I’m referring to, there are certain people who enjoy being idiots on mailing lists, and whose only purpose in life is to send hate mail. The person in question has been banned from several discussion groups online, and never EVER has anything good to say […]
but simply put, I’m exhausted. Spent most of the evening in the Emergency Room with PR last night, as he thought he had kidney stones (though the doctors couldn’t find any, and are saying it could be a pinched sciatic nerve) and didn’t get home until after midnight. This morning was spent packaging up items […]
A question. What Cost MP3? Good process. People. Sit up and listen.

Last week I purchased a burger at Burger King for $1.58. The counter girl took my $2 and I was digging for my change when I pulled 8 cents from my pocket and gave it to her. She stood there, holding the nickel and 3 pennies, while looking at the screen on her register. I […]
For new Norfolk restaurant, Zio’s, coming soon.
As with all things, errors are to be expected. 🙂 (Scroll ALLLLL the way down… the new plug in is “BlogTimes” — times the blog is updated normally)
…not a good thing? Do we REALLY need a fourth Wal-Mart on the Peninsula? Obviously, someone thinks so. I don’t see the need — there’s one in Hampton, on already in Newport News (where the 2nd would also go), one in York County, one in Williamsburg, Suffolk, Gloucester, Norfolk, several in Virginia Beach and Chesapeake, […]
PETERYou scored 57 friendliness and 68 adventurousness! You ARE Peter Rabbit! Congratulations! You like humans, they’re generally nice and can be quite useful. You enjoy the company of others, but you prefer to be the leader. You can sometimes be assertive and even a little aggressive. You’re also adventurous while still being cautious. You’re lovely […]
