Seen On A Wall In Decatur, IN


I Am The Most Deprived Of Men

Just look at what the most merciful God Himself in His Wisdom chose to place on a store shelf for me to see


Have you ever seen a clearer example of Divine Providence?

Yet my Bride refused to let me buy it.

Woe indeed is me.

The Survival Pack Is Ready


It will be a stretch but with economy it will cover me through Saturday.

The Science Is Settled

Honestly, this is not a surprise

ATLANTA (CBS ATLANTA) – Vegetarians may have a lower BMI and drink alcohol sparingly, but vegetarian diets are tied to generally poorer health, poorer quality of life and a higher need for health care than their meat-eating counterparts.

A new study from the Medical University of Graz in Austria finds that vegetarians are more physically active, drink less alcohol and smoke less tobacco than those who consume meat in their diets. Vegetarians also have a higher socioeconomic status and a lower body mass index. But the vegetarian diet — characterized by a low consumption of saturated fats and cholesterol that includes increased intake of fruits, vegetables and whole-grain products — carries elevated risks of cancer, allergies and mental health disorders*.

Vegetarians were twice as likely to have allergies, a 50 percent increase in heart attacks and a 50 percent increase in incidences of cancer.

Anecdotally, and y’all well know that there is a direct link from God’s mouth to my anecdotes, basically every vegetarian/vegan I’ve ever known has been the sallowist looking, constantly sniveling, sickest and generally all-around most miserable person of my considerable acquaintance.

I am a firm believer that if our Wise Government is going to mandate anything with regard to Public Health that a requirement that each Citizen consume a minimum of One (1) Bacon Double Cheeseburger each week would be more salubrious to the General Welfare than 99% of the bloviated Nannyisms that currently assail us.

*frankly, this last may in fact be a pre-existing condition.

Ghost In The Machine

Really, here’s another reason to get an Xbox One or other such device that has a camera

INDIANAPOLIS (March 26, 2014) — A family claims they are being terrorized by their cable box. For more than a week, personal and harassing messages are showing up on their TVs.

Alana Meeks has no idea who’s behind it.

“This stuff is uncanny. I haven’t heard anything like this in my life,” she said. “He says he’s a stalker.”

Meeks said it started more than a week ago — “he” or someone has taken control of her AT&T cable box and typing messages on two of her TVs.

The family showed us a few. One wrote: ‘ISEEYOUHAHA’. Others even threatened to hurt Alana’s 9-year-old granddaughter, Aniya.

…FOX59 cameras were rolling when it happened again. Whoever was typing knew we were there, too.


“Always on” internet connections to “smart devices” are just a bad idea.

March 26th Gerbil Warmening Update


Just a sugar coating as the storm stayed well off the coast.

Man I hope this is the last of it for this year.

A Friend’s Email Got Hijacked


Hope you get this on time, We made a trip to Manila,Philippines and had our bags stolen from us with our phones and credit cards in it. The embassy is willing to help by letting us fly back home since we still have our passports, We just have to pay for our ticket and settle Hotel bills. Unfortunately for us, I don’t have access to funds without my credit card, I’ve made contact with my bank but they need more time to come up with a new one. I was thinking of asking you to lend me ($2,650USD) that I can give back as soon as We get home. We really need to be on the next available flight. I’m so confused at the moment I need urgent help.

Western Union is the best option to send money to us. Let me know if you need my details(Full names and Present location) you can also reach me via email.I will forever be grateful if you can help me

All hopes on you.

Heartrending, no?

The Best Part Of Waking Up…

Much to Sis’s chagrin (and you do NOT want to see the abuse I had to endure from her on IM) I had the very great privilege of meeting up with the Pure Gentleman of Crab Apple Lane and just look what he treated me to


coffee and beignets from Morning Call


Over-Compensate Much?

22 Degrees This Morning

And a couple of inches of snow for Tuesday.

It’s March 24th.

I want to go back to New Orleans.

Note to Bingley: The Auld Gods Try to Clock Your Noggin

…when you DON’T get the…

Happy Saint Patrick’s Day!! Slàinte!!

…post up FIRST thing in the mornin’.

Well This Day Has Started Well

So I’m sitting at my desk at 6:30 and the light fixture above me collapses


Somehow it managed to miss my noggin but it dented the hell out of my full cup of coffee but didn’t knock it over (splashed quite a lot, though). It also knocked one of my monitors all askew.

And now as there’s no filter on the light overhead I feel either like a slice of pizza or I’m on the stand in Judgement At Nuremburg.

Can I go home now?

Virginia A #1 Seed?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!

Oh nononononononononononononono!

Not what I wanted at all.

I DO NOT want us to be the first #1 to lose to a #16…

Yeah, I’m a fatalist.

Marines Re-enact “Pickett’s Charge” at Gettysburg With Eerie Authenticity, According to Veterans at the Scene

(CIVIL War veterans.)

President Warren G. Harding, presiding. Brigadier General Smedley D. Butler, commanding.

All after a brisk hike out to the Pennsylvania battlefield…from Quantico, Virginia.

While Smedley Butler would drive to Gettysburg, his men hadn’t yet reached the point of becoming “mechanized infantry.” While some of his men would arrive in Gettysburg in tanks or airplanes, most of them traveled by foot. Here they are marching through Frederick, Maryland, on their way to Gettysburg. The marines arrived in Frederick around noon on June 24, and camped on the fairgrounds there overnight. They even had their band(s) playing as they marched through the town. This view was taken on June 24 or 25, 1922.

Now THAT’S “Old Corps”.

TONS of great pictures and, towards the end, a CLASSIC Marine Corps anecdote, from, of all people… :)

…The New York Times continued, “The only criticism that was heard of the exhibition came from F. B. Cope [sic], sergeant of Typographical Engineers with Meade’s headquarters, and now superintendent of the Gettysburg battlefield. When the units representing Armistead’s Kemper’s, Garnett’s, Archer’s, Scales’ and Pettigrew’s brigades reached the stone wall, the height of the charge, and turned slowly back, Mr. Cope, standing on the steps of the observation tower (which Cope designed) on Cemetery Ridge with President Harding, declared the Marines did not retreat fast enough. This may have been criticism, but the Marines accepted it as a compliment.”
