    A White Sport Coat and a Pink Crustacean

    There is a host of things that I want to rant on.  As a matter of fact, I’m pretty pissed off right now in general, it’s kind of an underlying life theme right now. httpv://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WINDtlPXmmE However, there are also a lot of good things going on and I am a lucky dog.  So today we’re going to talk about a couple of recent adventures.  There are some more coming up too, so I have some great stuff going on. A couple of weeks ago I got invited up to Hahn Family Wineries for the Pinot Smackdown.  This was Twitter event.  I’m not on Twitter so much any more, so the…

    The cheese stands alone

    I’m sure all of you who have television saw the original of this.  I think he looks terrible in that video.  Actually, I think he’s looked bad for a while now, bad like he’s-going-to-drop-dead-at-any-minute-bad.  I hope he doesn’t, at this point he’s kind of the heart of the Democratic Party, the only guy who remembers how to get anything done.  I can’t even begin to understand what happened to the Republican Party.  They have clearly forgotten about the separation of church and state, which while not in the Constitution, was clearly the intent of the founding fathers.  (Do your homework).  I reject the cultural and social conservativism they are spewing…

    Rumblings of a middle aged mad man

    A lifetime ago I sold college class rings at various Universities and community colleges throughout Northern California. In 1991, a woman at Santa Clara gave me a term that I’ve never forgotten; male madness. She was getting a degree at Santa Clara because the father of her children caught male madness after 21 years of marriage. She was in her late forties and so was he. So am I. I’m not leaving my wife, but I’m not sure I’m not suffering from the beginning stages of male madness. My father did. He didn’t leave me, my brothers and my mother either. I know he wasn’t sure who he was or…

  • It's all Reagan's fault

    It’s all Reagan’s fault

    We have a guest blogger this morning.  Actually, he’s never heard of Pink Bunny Ears.  Maybe his people will tell him about our little thing. I don’t always agree with this guy’s spin on things, but sometimes he nails it. There’s a catagory here called “It’s all Reagan’s fault”.  That’s because it is. Here it’s all laid out sucinctly and properly.  And he’s right.  He should have entitled it “It’s all Reagan’s fault.”

    There’s evil in the air and there’s thunder in the sky

    If ever there were a week that was perfectly shiteous, it was last week.  Holy Canolli what a trainwreck. It opened with me requesting a showing at one of my listings where there is one party adversely holding the other parties essentially for ransom.  The great great grandfather built the place in 1918.   Somewhere in time another patriarch built out the basement.  He was a short guy so it’s not to code height wise.  By the time it was all said and done it’s divided into 16ths.  One great great grandaughter lives there and the rest of the family just own there share with which they can do nothing.…

  • I Like Ike

    Godspeed little man

    I look at this picture and I know something was up with Ike.  His eyes in this picture are not the eyes I’ve been looking at. This morning I had Norman and Rita out, Bubba in his crate and Ike in the family room.  Rita hit the French Doors and they came open.  I jumped up in time to see Ike in a very aggressive stance heading out to Norman.  By the time I ran through the house Norman had him down.  Ike was still trying to fight but his ass was kicked.  I sat in the vet’s office crying.  As recently as yesterday I’d had discussions with Doberman guru…

    There’s a fashion, there’s a fad, some is good, some is bad

    Lagniappe It’s probably been over a year since I’ve done Google Keywords of the Weak Week.  Arguably one of the reasons would be I’ve not been logging on and checking my numbers.  They’re down from the hey day of the Alliance Title debacle and Bill and Ted’s Excellent Title Adventure.    But we can still have fun with keywords. PBE is the #1 google ranking for the search “patty hauptman santa barbara”.  Woof.  Strangely we are also #1 for the term “swordfish porn”.  Which I’m I little surprised that it comes up at all, although I am secretly proud of that one.  We’re #3 for “mood changing bunny ears”, which…
