Chicago Guns.

While it is illegal to own a gun in Chicago, that hasn’t prevent the people of Chicago from getting shot.  So, Chicago is proposing a tax on bullets.

Maybe they can use the revenues to support the Coroners Office.


I woke up at 3 AM this morning to what sounded like a party in my living room.  Disgruntled, I got up to see what was going on.

There was no party but the TV was on and tuned to a late night talk show.  I concluded that the cat must have stepped on the remote and turn on the TV.  I shut it off and went back to bed.

I may have to make a point in putting the remote away at night.

RIP Frosty And Santa.

One of my neighbors has a giant inflatable Santa and a giant inflatable snowman.  Well, sometime during the night, Santa and Frosty went flat.

Their misshapen remains in the grass made it look more like a homicide scene than a Christmas display.  But, in a few hours, they were back on their feet again.

Cream Of Mushroom Soup.

Cream of Mushroom soup is on sale this week at Meijer(regional grocery chain).  They had case after case of the stuff sitting in the main isle.

Must be sales were lower than expected this Thanksgiving.  I wonder if they also have a surplus of green beans?

Frosty The Snowman!

Today, I was in Meijer (regional grocery chain) when I heard “Frosty the Snowman” playing over the PA system.  I couldn’t constrain myself and yelled “NOOOOOOOO!!!”  But, everyone ignored me.

I guess Thanksgiving is finished for the year.

Don’t Take It Personally!

Recently, I discovered that a woman, on one of my dating websites, goes to my church.  So, it seemed like a natural to ask her out.  But, every time that I asked, she had a million excuses to decline.  I soon got the idea that she really wasn’t interested in dating me.

When I told a friend of mine from church about the dilemma, he told me not to take it personally.

Not to take it personally??!!  How else should I take it?  She is not going out with me because of something personal about me.

Well, I am not surprised.  I met her on Christian Mingle and Christian Mingle is home to the curious and not the serious.

High Performance Toilet.

I recently replaced my toilet with a high performance model.  Amongst the features of this new toilet is a “quick release toilet seat”.

Now, I had to pause and reflect on a “quick release toilet seat” and what that might entail.  I suppose, if you got your butt stuck in the toilet, a quick release seat might be good safety feature.

Reflecting further, I have “quick release hubs” on my bicycle.  They allow me to change wheels quickly.

I suppose the same  could be true for my toilet seat.  After all, if I need to change my toilet seat, those quick releases might come it handy.  Not only would they work for blowouts, they would also work if I want to install a “high performance” seat.

Well, what ever.  If you have a high performance toilet, you also need a high performance seat.

The Santa Rosa.

No, it is not the name of a Spanish ship.  It is the name of the newest addition to my house.

I an effort to do my part for society and the environment, I have installed a water saving toilet.  No more watching the water rise and see everything swirling around.  3 seconds and it is done.  Even the cat gets bored watching it.  And, with the amount of water that it saves, it should pay for itself in less than 30 years.
