    Life is like a box of chocolates

    And today PBE is a box of chocolates. I’ve just got a ton of bits and pieces and not a complete thought in the whole mess…a lot like a box of chocolates. First off, I know youtube doesn’t show up right here, but today I have something from Blutube. The take down by the dog is awesome. And don’t run when they bring in the chopper, they can see you in the dark. NOLA revisited This gal is one of the best real estate bloggers on the internet. She’s based in San Diego and really does an excellent job. I think her blog even has awards from people that matter.…

    Hang myself if I get enough rope

    That was for Sonofabun. I’m pretty light today and I need to get out of here early. The lean green machine no longer shows the five green balls, or four, or three or two or one. Not only does it show a yellow one, but also a red one. That means I will lop off a pound of flesh and pray to the Bavarian car gods that I have enough credit to get this thing serviced. At least they’ll wash it when they’re done. So today, we have google key words. van williamson ed meades (van is ed meades winemaker, ed meades makes rockin’ zin) Doberman foam mouth (don’t google…

    Needle and the damage done

    UPS Today’s Worst Persons in the World!!!!! How effing stupid do you have to be? My 88 year old Aunt sent two boxes via United Package Smashers to The Parental Unit. Shouldn’t be that hard…right? My dear Aunt wrote out their stupid little form, absolutely properly. The jackass with the hand sticking out of his forehead in Joplin, Mo, turned 5484 into 5456 on the shipping label. I realize typing four digits in the address must be difficult when you have a third hand growing out of your forehead because you’re some ignorant inbred piece of crap. What really chaps my hide is the local people telling me that my…

    Leave this one horse town like two rebels without a cause

    Today used to be a rest day, because class was on Tuesday. Class finished last week and now here I am with no planned workout on Tuesday. That can’t be good. Instead of going down to the gym and doing a HIIT cardio workout, I went to the crossfit website. Today’s workout was: Run one mile Two minutes each of: Rowing Dumbbell thrusters Medicine ball cleans Double unders Pull ups I can’t really do the last two at all. So I just jumped rope and did assisted pull-ups. I don’t think I lost much. Basically if you run a 10 minute mile, which is bookin’ for me, and then do…

    And one name read and nobody really cared, but a pretty little girl with a bow in her hair

    Lucky you, it’s a good day for a rant. But first, I rode 33 miles yesterday on a ride I did all the time on my other bike. I took 22 minutes off of my average time. The new bike is fast. Or maybe I’m stronger. No, the new bike is fast. I bought new tires for it, but I haven’t installed them yet. I took them out of the box and they are “breathing” on the floor next to the bike. Judi suggested asked Dominic, what tires to get and he suggested Continental Grand Prix. I got the grey ones, I wasn’t feeling ego-centrical enough to get the red…

    The mirror speaks, the reflection lies

    I could do a pet peeves today.  I’m just cranky.  It’s cold and raining and it’s the 24th of May fergodsakes.  I had to cancel my morning bike ride, that makes me cranky.  And I’m opening the plethora of junk mail that arrives at The Farm every week.  I used to just throw it out but now that identity theft is being talked about so much in the media, and the economy is in the crapper, everyone is an identity thief…so I have to shred everything.  Who do I hate most?  The person who spent the time to hand write this and send it to me?  Or the stack of…

    Dippin’ low in the lap of luxury.

    We just don’t like seeing this sort of thing.  These guys are in and out of our office all day long.   Some are clowns, but all accounts, this guy was a good guy.  Not a drug addled train wreck.  Sadly, it occurred the morning of the Ride of Silence.  Unlike Critical Mass, the Ride of Silence stops at lights, obeys the law and generally behaves properly.  When a car hits a bike or a bike hits a car, it doesn’t really matter who’s fault it is, the biker goes down. Beauregard is on the mend actually he just kept me up all night.  He was fine for a day and…

  • Stuck on Stupid

    Walking down this rocky road

    While I hate to admit it, sometimes I’m a complete idiot.  Today is about turning myself in. I’ve been worried about Beau’s weight, he seems to be losing a little weight.  I added a 1/2 cup of food at a third meal, I figured since Rita got three meals, I could easily give him a little more then.  Yesterday, he was a very sick boy.  He got me up several times the night before last to go out and it wasn’t good once he got there.  I went to the gym yesterday morning and God bless his pointed little head, he was in the main part of the house and…

    Love too good

    Spread your wings You’ve been too long in the cage Feeling the rage of abuses Oh, I’m sorry. Sometimes I’m just amazed by a dog’s ability to love. First that you could name a Doberman “Bunny” and she could still be full of love is unreal. I’m going to talk to the rescue about having a contest to rename this poor creature. She had diarrhea and vomiting and her vet wanted to do more tests. She was a year old. The owner said “put her down.” I can only hope that the universe or karma is employed when this individual is sick, hurt or injured. I hope they receive the…
