Down in the west Texas town of El Paso

Hola!  I thought you were supposed to use an upsidedown exclamation mark with that.  Guess not.  Today I played in the ocean, spent too much time in the sun and learned what the big friggin deal with the time shares was.  These guys get paid $135 for every referral that converts.  That is a lot of pesos.  They get one conversion out of about ten referrals.  Kind of like the cold call rate.  You knew I would know those numbers. 

It is a sad day in the wine world.  I just could never imagine getting to the point that there was only one solution.  Of course I spend a tremendous amount of time digging through piles of horse shit looking for ponies.

I have one thing to say to those 244 Representatives.  OK two.  One 2010.  The other?  Quit being a bunch of freaking babies.  Your way didn´t work.  Quit being a bunch of pouty babies.  Get on board.  And one more thing.  2010.  Seriously, we´re all paying over $4k each for the last stimulus plan that paid untold amounts to unnamed executives and you assholes are voting against this?  You are a bunch of freaking babies.

For some reason I´ve been thinking a lot about Beauregard on this trip.  It´s so weird.  He was the youngest animal I have lost.  The last two years have been such a whirlwind/nightmare and now I have a couple of days to reflect and my dog´s dead.  How the hell did that happen?  I mean I know how it happened.  He had cancer.  He woke me up at 3am and he couldn´t breathe.  The cancer was drowning him, but how did that happen? 

When I get home I have a USDA Prime rant ready to go on lenders.  I know you can´t wait for that one.
