    One sheep. Two sheep.

    Well THAT was an interesting week. By the way, I blame the NFL for the downfall of our society.  Just sayin’. But then after he goes all stupid on the air, he comes back the next day and gives this press conference. I can’t hate him for that.  He got to fired up, somebody put a mike in his face and he went stupid.  I get that.  It speaks to a certain lack of class as far as I’m concerned, but, he comes back nicely.  As for the asshat fans that threw food at NaVorro Bowman as he was being carted off the field with a blown ACL, well, refer…

    I’m your reasoned alibis

    I’ve just got a lot of stuff that’s been keeping me thinking.  I could not have debunked this is five minutes as well as this guy does.

Better? Yeah that’s not better.  But somebody somewhere along the line taught that girl how to sing. Seems okie dokey, but here’s the part that doesn’t compute.  Both of her parents are Pentecostal pastors.  No shit. We all know I like to pick on organized religion.  Especially the piss poor state of it.  Of course I wonder if it ever wasn’t piss poor.  Some sterling examples?  How about…

Do I need to go back to the PBE posts of why I’m done?  Let’s start with the Old Woman breaking her hip two days before Christmas and 2012 and all that it entailed.  Now the Old Woman has healed well and gets around pretty good, I would venture to say as well as she did before, but it was pretty adventuresome all that was involved in getting her on the road to recovery.  Needless to say there is a lot more involvement of all concerned. And my body.  Surely you saw the two broken toes.  The right foot in January, the…
