NFL cancels Sunday Night Football

The orange thing will take credit for the low ratings no doubt.....

Start your new year off right....

If you play "In the Air Tonight" on Dec.31 at 11:56:40 the drum break will play right as the clock strikes midnight.



Disclaimer given: I have not tried this, but plan to!

Start off your new year right.

Disclaimer given: I have not actually tried this, but will in a week!

Al Franken and if we get a dem as POTUS

should become ambassador to the country of his choice....

I'm still pissed and trying to deal.

I am Republican.......

"I am republican and what defines me is that I put money above all else. I make my goal in government to pass any and all laws that help me get more money. I only care about me. I will rig it all if I have to so that I can make money. I will gerrymander, I will cheat, I will lie, I will manipulate. The only rules that actually matter are the ones that make sure I get what I want. I do not care that I hurt people. I do not care what people I hurt. I only care that I am taken care of and I severely judge anyone else that voices their belief that they matter. They do not. I believe anyone who is not as wealthy as I am is lazy and unmotivated. I belief that I am more deserving than anyone else. I make sure all of my votes make sure I benefit primarily. You cannot shame me into caring about others because my entire party is narcissistic. It is our culture. And you cannot change my mind because my goals are not the betterment of the country. I am motivated by greed above all and I will sell out my country at any option if it means I make more money. And in order to make sure that I am taken care of, I need to make sure YOU are controlled, YOU don’t have options, YOU don’t get a vote, YOU are silenced. I am republican and I will do whatever it takes to maintain my position of power. Anything."

Yeap, pretty much sums it up. Sad and pathetic.......

This is baaaad ass! And way cool!

How children perceive their Grandparents......cute funnies!

1. I was in the bathroom, putting on my makeup, under the watchful eyes of my young granddaughter, as I'd done many times before. After I applied my lipstick and started to leave, the little one said, "But Grandma, you forgot to kiss the toilet paper good-bye!" I will probably never put lipstick on again without thinking about kissing the toilet paper good-bye....

2. My young grandson called the other day to wish me Happy Birthday. He asked me how old I was, and I told him, 72. My grandson was quiet for a moment, and then he asked, "Did you start at 1?"

3. After putting her grandchildren to bed, a grandmother changed into old slacks and a droopy blouse and proceeded to wash her hair. As she heard the children getting more and more rambunctious, her patience grew thin. Finally, she threw a towel around her head and stormed into their room, putting them back to bed with stern warnings. As she left the room, she heard the three-year-old say with a trembling voice, "Who was THAT?"

4. A grandmother was telling her little granddaughter what her own childhood was like. "We used to skate outside on a pond. I had a swing made from a tire; it hung from a tree in our front yard. We rode our pony. We picked wild raspberries in the woods." The little girl was wide-eyed, taking this all in. At last she said, "I sure wish I'd gotten to know you sooner!"

5. My grandson was visiting one day when he asked, "Grandma, do you know how you and God are alike?" I mentally polished my halo and I said, "No, how are we alike?'' "You're both old," he replied.

6. A little girl was diligently pounding away on her grandfather's word processor. She told him she was writing a story.
"What's it about?" he asked.
"I don't know," she replied. "I can't read."

7. I didn't know if my granddaughter had learned her colors yet, so I decided to test her. I would point out something and ask what color it was. She would tell me and was always correct. It was fun for me, so I continued. At last, she headed for the door, saying, "Grandma, I really think you should try to figure out some of these colors yourself!"

8. When my grandson Billy and I entered our vacation cabin, we kept the lights off until we were inside to keep from attracting pesky insects Still, a few fireflies followed us in. Noticing them before I did, Billy whispered, "It's no use Grandpa. Now the mosquitoes are coming after us with flashlights."

9. When my grandson asked me how old I was, I teasingly replied, "I'm not sure." "Look in your underwear, Grandpa," he advised "Mine says I'm 4 to 6." (WOW! I really like this one -- it says I'm only '38'!)

10. A second grader came home from school and said to her grandmother, "Grandma, guess what? We learned how to make babies today." The grandmother, more than a little surprised, tried to keep her cool. "That's interesting." she said. "How do you make babies?" "It's simple," replied the girl. "You just change 'y' to 'i' and add 'es'."

11. Children's Logic: "Give me a sentence about a public servant," said a teacher. The small boy wrote: "The fireman came down the ladder pregnant." The teacher took the lad aside to correct him. "Don't you know what pregnant means?" she asked. "Sure," said the young boy confidently. 'It means carrying a child."

12. A grandfather was delivering his grandchildren to their home one day when a fire truck zoomed past. Sitting in the front seat of the fire truck was a Dalmatian dog. The children started discussing the dog's duties.
"They use him to keep crowds back," said one child.
"No," said another. "He's just for good luck."
A third child brought the argument to a close. “They use the dogs," she said firmly, "to find the fire hydrants."

13. A 6-year-old was asked where his grandma lived. "Oh," he said, "she lives at the airport, and whenever we want her, we just go get her. Then, when we're done having her visit, we take her back to the airport."

14. Grandpa is the smartest man on earth! He teaches me good things, but I don't get to see him enough to get as smart as him!

15. My Grandparents are funny, when they bend over, you hear gas leaks and they blame their dog.




The resistance just advanced a foothold....well done!

And we'll take that win with thanks to our morally proud constituents! Alabama showed us what could be done....and we, as fellow du resisters, need to follow their lead.

Midterms, Midterms, Midterms!

Pretty quiet on Facebook today.....

crickets.....

Rec this if you would vote for Doug Jones if you could today......

I know, I know...pretty much a no brainer here on du...but hey, everyone loves those recs, right? Humor me, it's been a loooong, ugly year and I have a "personal best" rec number to beat!

#dougjones, #dougjonesplease, #recrequest, #wimidterms, #randybryce, #okimdone

Merry "Mueller" Christmas, fellow du'ers! Peace!
