The Envelope Please…

The award for luckiest dumbass of the millennium has to go to the knucklehead who “fell” from the Carnival Cruise Line ship into the Gulf of Mexico. He spent fifteen hours in the warm, shark infested waters before being found and rescued. The motive is still under question, as a spokesperson for the cruise linesContinue reading “The Envelope Please…”

News Makers

Used to be the news stations would report the news. Then came the insidious VNR’s and the news was now not what it is, but what the news stations want you to think it is. Colored by whatever political affiliations and agendas, news is now identified as “red” or “blue.” Either way, a load ofContinue reading “News Makers”

Feet

I am winding down our search for a new SUV and it looks like the three finalists are the Toyota Highlander, the Ford Edge, and the Kia Telluride. Tomorrow we will test drive them and make a decision soon. The sooner we buy, the sooner I can get behind the wheel and drive for theContinue reading “Closing the Deal”
