How could anyone forget her!


A better question would be why would anyone want to remember her. Women fuck their bosses right and left, no one gives a shit.

But let your boss be the POTUS and it makes it different for some inexplicable reason.

You implied that Blair was a dumb movie, meaning the people who like it must be dumb.


You know what, Wile E.?

You win. Congratufuckinglations.

Good luck, kids. You know where to find me if you need me.

Okay, I will admit I've missed something vital. I've gone back a couple of pages and can't figure out where the conversation left the road, but I'm calling time out.

Frank, in the last day you've managed to insult and inflame Diane, Lori and Doug, as well as continue to rub salt in other wounds. I've given you more than enough piano wire over the years.

We'll see you in a few days. If you post anything....anything...in the forums before Monday I'm deleting it wholesale.

See you Monday, hopefully a bit less of an ass than you've become.

Where should I go to start a blog? LJ just doesn't cut it anymore. . .



This is like finding your favorite burger. Usually what you started with is the one you stay with. I've always used WordPress. It appears to have more available themes than the others, plus the ability to do your own.



I'll give 'em both a try. I don't anticipate using too many graphics, but will require them on occasion, so we'll see which is friendlier to this luddite. . .

Hello Barber. Hello world.

Barber did the right thing--he is the head honcho.

I had a very good weekend, beyond the other issue. Saw a Buster Keaton film with live organ extra: The General. Keaton was a genius, to be sure.

Barber will like this story: Turkey has major issues with street roaming dogs and cats, but unlike here, they tend to be against killing them:

For a major Islamic country to be this tolerant is something to ponder.

Turkey has traditionally been a fairly secular country actually. Militantly so at times.

Well, I went gone done it. Went with blogspot in the end. Might try word press when I can justify purchasing a domain name. Check it out, first comment wins a cookie:

First comment: You used the @ symbol in your address, which immediately triggers Phishing warnings in a lot of computer servers.

And blogspot already gave me a cookie for visiting your site.

Frank -
Good article. Americans tend to be in a minority when it comes to treatment of loose dogs. Rounding them up and killing them doesn't seem to be solving the problem, so perhaps we need to change our approach....

Tango, despite the brutality of his early life, had the fortune to fall into the Long Beach shelter, which is no-kill. They, in turn contacted Dalmatian Rescue where we found him six months later.

I do not have words sufficiently angry enough to describe my opinion of people who simply get tired of their dog and drop them off to be euthanized.
