There hasn't been an hijacking of an American airplane or an attack on the US mainland since 9/11. I blame George Bush for that.

Emotions can make people do weird things. I haven't walked into a McDonalds for over 22 years and still flip them the bird when I drive by. I have hated them ever since they called the police on me during one of my drunken visits. Grrrrrrrr. I have gotten over it a little, I don't kick clowns in the...

I tried it and was able to run a test call. Couldn't figure out how to call a land line and gave up. I think it is pretty big in Europe.

Bad news sells. Good news is boring. Of course you could also blame the agenda driven media, but it is more about money. Suffering gets ratings.

Have the puppy checked for a urinary tract infection. Even my 5 and 8 yr old goldens insist on going out at 6 in the morning on weekends, which is...
