Fred Dalton Thompson

Is this guy serious?  Senator and Actor (and for a short while, both at the same time, officially). I started reading about him and came up with this quote:

"After two years in Washington, I often long for the realism and sincerity of Hollywood." From a speech given by Thompson before the Commonwealth Club of California.

I like a guy who can come up with an amusing soundbite/quote. Like Kinky Friedman for example.

Am I Too Old?

I really would love one of these Freeboards. It is like a snowboard and skateboard hybrid. The main point is that you can slow down just like on a snowboard.

But let's face it, I would probably end up in the hospital. I am 47 years old.

It looks fun, though, doesn't it?

Kinky to play "Bonefit" for Utopia Animal Rescue Ranch

Sorry, I am out of touch so long. At emissions conference in
Copenhagen just now. Saw Al Gore speak yesterday. It was
better than I imagined it would be.

Oh, here is something about Kinky raising money for his dog
rescue ranch. I love this guy. If I weren't so poor, I would
give him money.

Kinky Friedman, making his first appearance in Dallas since
the gubernatorial election, has declared, "life has better
things in store for the Kinkster," and topmost on his dance
card is the Utopia Animal Rescue Ranch. On March 24th, Kinky
is putting his purse where his pout is and headlining a
concert fundraiser for Utopia at Poor David's Pub, 1313
South Lamar St., Dallas. "I've always liked stray dogs
better than fat cats," says Kinky, who will be making
similar 'Bonefit Victory' tour stops throughout Texas, "and
I consider every rescued animal a victory in life."

Doors are at 7:15PM and the concert, part of Poor David's
Pub's thirtieth anniversary month, starts at 8PM, with Black
Top Gypsy. For this performance, Kinky will be joined by
some very special guests, including Little Jewford,
Washington Ratso, and legendary Austin fiddler, Sweet Mary
Hattersley. The concert will be preceded by a VIP reception
at Poor David's Pub, starting at 6PM. At both events,
'Kinky's Select Cigars' will be made available for the first
time. The cigars, handmade by Cubans in Honduras, and
praised by the Kinkster himself, will be sold for $100 per
box, with all profits going to Utopia. Pre-order cigars now
at kinkyfriedman.com. Tickets for the reception are
available only through Elese Hadsell

The Utopia Animal Rescue Ranch, co-founded by Kinky, rescues
and places stray and unwanted dogs. For years, it has been
the top rescue station for animals in all of the Hill
Country. To make direct donations, just send your check,
cash or money order to Utopia Animal Rescue Ranch, 966 Echo
Hill Road, Medina, TX 78055. Or just visit at
utopiarescue.com.

Ah yes, the sweet taste of victory - come enjoy it at Poor
David's Pub, March 24, 2007!

Seems Simple Enough To Me

Stop your research! I have figured it out.

 

Scientists have found a section of the earth’s crust missing. What’s there in place is only the mantle. (not too dissimilar to the bald patch on the top of my head).

 

What is bothering them is that the cannot figure out why the crust is missing.

 

Well it seems simple enough to me. It’s the Drain that lets all the sea water drain out.

 

What? They want to drill samples in the mantle ?  Don’t do it! All the fishies will get sucked in!

 

There is apparently a web cam somewhere on this site (but I couldn’t find it) to watch them poke holes in mother earth.

Volkswagen Type 3

I had one of these. Its great now that I can see that Dustin Hoffman
did a TV commercial for it.

The Bling Dynasty

I heard that phrase on a BBC World Service Report.  I am sure the correspondent will be talking that one up for a while.

It refers to the new wealth experienced in China.
