The Music of Your Life

If you go to this site and enter the full date of your Birth/Anniversary/any other significant date; you can find out what was the #1 sonfg on the charts for that day, and every year on that date from the start to the present.

Here's what was hot on the day I entered kicking and screaming into this thing called life:


No wonder I'm so layed back, with Perry Como for my theme! LOL

Sadness on the Holiday


R.I.P. ASIA 1995 - 2008

It is with great sadness that I have to announce a death in the family.

It causes no less grief that it was one of the animal members.

When BethA got home from work she checked on her beloved companion of the last twelve years, a great Tuxedo cat named Asia. Asia hadn't felt well for the last several days, but at 2300 Hrs tonight he took a turn for the worse and we decided to take him to the local 24 hr Vet hospital to try to see if there was anything to be done.....two x-rays and a period of time in an oxygen tank later, it was determined the he was in heart failure, and although there was a course of treatment to be given; it was to the tune of $2500.00 for the initial course and continuing treatments that could only delay the inevitable, with no guarantee that the quality of his life would be anywhere near pain free.

So at 0315 hrs this morning the Vet sent our beloved Asia into a comfortable eternal sleep. Beth was holding him in her arms as he passed and it was peaceful.

I am not a cat person by any means but I was hard put to hold it together for Beth's sake, We have lost a true friend and close companion.

It may be difficult for non-pet people to understand, but it truly is like the loss of an immediate family member.

Still, when I count my blessings when sitting down for the Thanksgiving feast, I will be grateful that we did the right thing and put Asia out of his pain.

Tribute to the Troops

Here's a video tribute to all those that are serving far away from their families this Thanksgiving, courtesy of Lynard Skynyrd:

May you all return safe to your home and family, but if you don't, KNOW that your sacrifice was not in vain and you WILL be remembered.

I'm with LC Crunchie on this story, it gave me a great chubby just envisioning the rout.

With odds of only 250 Ragheads to 30 Marines; the ragheads never had a chance. And a certain unnamed Cpl. proved the wisdom of adding a Designated Marksman to every line unit: twenty shots/twenty confirmed kills in the face of overwhelming fire; if this Marine doesn't receive the Silver Star for his actions, there is no justice.

Chesty Puller would be proud of the manner his Corps is carrying on in his tradition.

Hank Williams Jr. has a song for these heroes:

I'm an AMERICAN Dammit!

Those that know me KNOW how I feel about Heavy Metal or Rap "music"( namely , that it ISN"T music). But then there is always the exception to the rule and this You-Tube by Stuck Mojo has a message that we all need to hear. Forget the medium;listen to the message:

Colmes Leaves

Seems that Alan Colmes will be leaving his co-host spot on Fox's HANNITY & COLMES show after the first of the year. Too bad, in my opinion; Mr. Colmes was a great exampler of the Liberal (idiotic) point of view and was a good counterbalance to some of Hannity's more bombastic assertions.

Doesn't affect me in any case, I'll be watching Glen Beck.

Hunting Party

Now that the election is over I hear that Sarah Palin is going to show there is no animosity about losing the election.

She's invited both Obama and Biden on a Caribou hunting trip.

She's already lined up Dick Cheney to teach gun safety and
Ted Kennedy to drive them to their cabins after the pre-hunt party.

The Parrot

A young man named John received a parrot as a gift. The parrot had a
bad attitude and an even worse vocabulary. Every word out of the
bird's' mouth was rude, obnoxious and laced with profanity. John
tried and tried to change the bird's attitude by consistently saying only
polite words, playing soft music and anything else he could think of to
"clean up" the bird's vocabulary.

Finally, John was fed up and he yelled at the parrot. The parrot
yelled back. John shook the parrot and the parrot got angrier and
even ruder. John, in desperation, threw up his hand, grabbed the bird
and put him in the freezer.

For a few minutes the parrot squawked and kicked and
screamed. Then suddenly there was total quiet. Not A Peep, was heard
for over a minute.

Fearing that he'd hurt the parrot, John quickly opened the door to
the Freezer. The parrot calmly stepped out onto John's outstretched arms
And said "I believe I may have offended you with my rude language and
actions. I'm sincerely remorseful for my inappropriate transgressions and I
fully intend to do everything I can to correct my rude and unforgivable behavior."

John was stunned at the change in the bird's attitude. As he was about to
ask the parrot what had made such a dramatic change in his behavior, when the bird continued, "May I ask what the turkey did?"

Quote of the Day

"There is no doubt in my mind that millions of lives could have been saved if the people had not been "brainwashed" about gun ownership and they had been well armed. Hitler's thugs and goons were not very brave when confronted by a gun. Gun haters always want to forget the Warsaw Ghetto uprising, which is a perfect example of how a ragtag, half starved group of Jews took up 10 handguns and made asses out of the Nazi's." — Theodore Haas
(former prisoner of the infamous Dachau prisoner concentration camp)

The Game Warden and the Boy

A game warden was driving down the road when he came upon a young boy carrying a wild turkey under his arm.

He stopped and asked the boy, 'Where did you get that turkey?'

The boy replied, 'What turkey?'

The game warden said, 'That turkey you're carrying under your arm.'

The boy looks down and said, 'Well, lookee here, a turkey done roosted under my arm!'

The game warden said, 'Now look, you know turkey season is closed, so whatever you do to that turkey, I'm going to do to you.

If you break his leg, I'm gonna break your leg. If you break his wing, I'll break your arm. Whatever you do to him, I'll do to you. So, what are you gonna do with him?'

The little boy said, 'I guess I'll just kiss his ass and let him go!'

Why Parents Drink

A Mother passing by her son's bedroom was astonished to see that his bed was nicely made and everything was picked up.

Then she saw an envelope, propped up prominently on the pillow that was addressed to 'Mom' With the worst premonition she opened the envelope with trembling hands and read the letter.

Dear Mom:

It is with great regret and sorrow that I'm writing you. I had to elope with my new girlfriend because I wanted to avoid a scene with Dad and you. I have been finding real passion with Stacy and she is so nice. But I knew you would not approve of her because of all her piercings, tattoos, tight motorcycle clothes and the fact that she is much older than I am. But it's not only the passion...Mom she's pregnant. Stacy said that we will be very happy. She owns a trailer in the woods and has a stack of firewood for the whole winter. We share a dream of having many more children.

Stacy has opened my eyes to the fact that marijuana doesn't really hurt anyone. We’ ll be growing it for ourselves and trading it with the other people that live nearby for cocaine and ecstasy. In the meantime we will pray that science will find a cure for AIDS so Stacy can get better. She deserves it. Don't worry Mom. I'm 15 and I know how to take care of myself. Someday I'm sure that we will be back to visit so that you can get to know your grandchildren.

Your Son Paul

P.S. Mom, none of the above is true. I'm over at Dustin's house. I just wanted to remind you that there are worse things in life than the report card that's in my center desk drawer.

I love you.

Call me when it's safe to come home.

To My Democratic Friends:

No Hard Feelings...

The election day is over,
The talking is done.
My party lost,
Your party won.

So let us be friends,
Let arguments pass.
I'll hug my elephant,
You go kiss your ass.

First call to Arms

It's begun.

With a lock-hold on the reins of two of the three branches of government, the Demoncrats are proposing to "more fairly distribute" the money you manage to put into retirement savings among all levels of income earners (even to those at the bottom 20% who earn NOTHING by their own effort)

This is nothing but bald faced governmental THEFT in the name of "FAIRNESS".

It is nothing less than Socialism at it's worst and should not be able to stand in a country that was founded on the principles of individual freedom and equality of opportunity. Socialists fail to realize that equal OPPORTUNITY does NOT mean that there will be equal RESULTS.

If the Democratically controlled government persists in these actions there will be one of two results;

A. A Soviet style dictatorship that will be the end of the promise that America always held out to the world. The promise of a country where hard work and individual effort resulted in the highest standard of living the world has ever seen,


B. A second (and even bloodier) American Civil War. Hopefully the correct side of the conflict will prevail and we will be able to go back to beginning and start the dream over; and even stronger, for having been tempered by the blast furnace of battle.

There you go, you 52%. You voted for "Change", I HOPE you enjoy the results of your stupidity.

For the rest of us; the "48%", it's time to stockpile weapons and ammunition, and to start organizing the Militia to take back our birthright of freedom.

Obama takes it

Well, it's all over but the final closing of the doors on the powerhouse that WAS America and now we can look forward to the great Socialist push forward to the United Socialist States of Amerika.

I'm not crying about this event though, it just may be the cold hard slap of reality that we need to finally wake up to what has been happening for the last thirty years. The times are somewhat difficult right now, but I am all but certain that we will look back in another four years time and pine for these "good ole days".

I believe that when the general populace starts realizing just what is going on around them, and more importantly, TO them, in an Obama Administration, they will finally begin awakening from their somnambulance and start resisting, let's just have HOPE that it won't be too little, too late.

For tonight I just say: Congratulations, President-Elect Obama.

Just remember, the fight is just beginning.
