Meanwhile, her Mother is baking a cake and asks her daughter if she would like a snack, and the daughter says, 'Absolutely Mom, I love your cake.'
'Here, have some cooking oil,' her Mother offers. 'Yuck' says her daughter. 'How about a couple raw eggs?' 'Gross, Mom!' 'Would you like some flour then? Or maybe baking soda?' 'Mom, those are all yucky!'
To which the mother replies: 'Yes, all those things seem bad all by themselves. But when they are put together in the right way, they make a wonderfully delicious cake! '
God works the same way. Many times we wonder why He would let us go through such bad and difficult times. But God knows that when He puts these things all in His order, they always work for good! We just have to trust Him and, eventually, they will all make something wonderful!
God is crazy about you. He sends you flowers every spring and a sunrise every morning.
Life may not be the party we hoped for, but while we are here we might as well dance. And enjoy the cake when we get it.

I would never vote for a commie/socialist and even though I admire McCain as a soldier, I was undecided if I could vote for him because of some of his actions as a senator. But now that he has added Sarah Palin as his vice president I will support him.
I hope and pray that this election will be the beginning of the end for the socialist/fascist party and the RINO's that infest our government.
My mother Katie and my maternal grandmother Sarah are my heroes. I have featured some of my heroes on this blog:

By the way, what kind of animal are you?' 'Well, I really don't know,' said the bunny. 'I'm blind, and I've never seen myself. Maybe you could examine me and find out.' So the snake felt the bunny all over, and he said, 'Well, you're soft, and cuddly, and you have long silky ears, and a little fluffy tail and a dear twitchy little nose. You must be a bunny rabbit!'
The bunny said, 'I can't thank you enough. But by the way, what kind of animal are you?' The snake replied that he didn't know either, and the bunny agreed to examine him, and when the bunny was finished, the snake asked, 'Well, what kind of an animal am I?' The bunny had felt the snake all over, and he replied, 'You're cold, you're slippery, and you haven't got any balls...You must be a POLITICIAN'.
Thanks to Joe A. for the story

A robotic suit is helping people paralysed from the waist down do what was previously considered impossible - stand, walk and climb stairs. ReWalk users wear a backpack device and braces on their legs and select the activity they want from a remote control wrist band. Leaning forwards activates body sensors setting the robotic legs in motion.

1 piece of steak per person (your choice) no bones.
1 bottle Bourbon (your choice)
brown sugar enough to cover both sides of each steak.
Trim steaks of all showing fat.
Place half of brown sugar on the bottom of a plastic rectangle container with a good sealing lid.
Place steaks into container, trying to keep the height level across the container.
Add the remaining brown sugar on top of the steaks.
Then cover the steaks with bourbon.
Place into refrigerator for up to 3 days. This marinade will last for 4 weeks kept in fridge.
When ready to BBQ, place steak onto a hot grill and cook one side then turn to cook remaining steak. It will not take very long as the steak has been marinated and will be very moist.
As steak is cooking, brush with more marinade.
This will be so tender you can eat it with a spoon.

THE last ice age 13,000 years ago took hold in just one year, more than ten times quicker than previously believed, scientists have warned.
Rather than a gradual cooling over a decade, the ice age plunged Europe into the deep freeze, German Research Centre for Geosciences at Potsdam said.
Cold, stormy conditions caused by an abrupt shift in atmospheric circulation froze the continent almost instantly during the Younger Dryas less than 13,000 years ago – a very recent period on a geological scale.
Another good article to read about a past ice age is at:

This story is a glimpse into the character and integrity of the men who pioneered our nation. They were men of principle and as such they stand in stark contrast to the scheming and corruption of the unprincipled current group that are running the country.
Long before he earned fame and eternal glory at the Alamo, Davy Crocket was a member of Congress, serving his beloved Kentucky with pride and distinction. There are many heroic tales and sage stories associated with this remarkable pioneer. This one, called "Sockdologer," is from Edward S. Ellis's book, The Life of Colonel David Crockett, published in 1884.
Davy Crockett's "Sockdologer" (1 : something that settles a matter : a decisive blow or answer : finisher, 2 : something outstanding or exceptional)

WASHINGTON - Less than a month after declaring polar bears a threatened species because of global warming, the Bush administration is giving oil companies permission to annoy and potentially harm them in the pursuit of oil and natural gas.
The Fish and Wildlife Service issued regulations this week providing legal protection to seven oil companies planning to search for oil and gas in the Chukchi Sea off the northwestern coast of Alaska if "small numbers" of polar bears or Pacific walruses are incidentally harmed by their activities over the next five years.
Environmentalists said the new regulations give oil companies a blank check to harass the polar bear.
I used to consider myself an environmentalist. I'm for clean air and water and keeping our planet as clean as possible, but now that the idiots have taken over the term, I don't listen to anything a so called environmentalist has to say. They have no common sense, they are anti-human and I consider them all NUTS. As for global warming, I've seen nothing to show that it exists, but even if it did Humans can't control it. It's in mother nature's hands (a term atheists use instead of GOD). Humans are at God's mercy not the other way around.

PARIS (AP) 03 June 2008 -- Brigitte Bardot was convicted Tuesday of provoking discrimination and racial hatred for writing that Muslims are destroying France.
A Paris court also handed down a $23,325 fine against the former screen siren and animal rights campaigner. The court also ordered Bardot to pay $1,555 in damages to MRAP.
A leading French anti-racism group known as MRAP filed a lawsuit last year over a letter she sent to then-Interior Minister Nicolas Sarkozy. The remarks were published in her foundation's quarterly journal.
In the December 2006 letter to Sarkozy, now the president, Bardot said France is "tired of being led by the nose by this population that is destroying us, destroying our country by imposing its acts."
Bardot, 73, was referring to the Muslim feast of Aid el-Kebir, celebrated by slaughtering sheep.
French anti-racism laws prevent inciting hatred and discrimination on racial or religious grounds. Bardot had been convicted four times previously for inciting racial hatred.
"She is tired of this type of proceedings," he said. "She has the impression that people want to silence her. She will not be silenced in her defense of animal rights."

Another rock legend gone...
He influenced a lot of rockers including Buddy Holly, Elvis, The Rolling Stones, etc...
Check out the girl in the black and white 1966 clip, Norma-Jean Wofford, aka "The Duchess", on the second square guitar which Bo Diddley had taught her to play. She decided to end her career, get married and raise a family. She was good and Bo was always ahead of everyone else with his music. Even in his later years he still had it, as can be seen at the end of this clip.
Diddley had harsh words for the direction black music had taken in recent years, telling Reuters that “gangsta” rap made his blood boil. “I hate it. I call it rap-crap,” Diddley said in a 1996 interview. “I can’t seem to get my records played but they’ll play all this garbage.”

I love Texas, but I really miss Tokyo. I grew up from an 18 year old high school boy to a 23 year old young man in Tokyo. I miss the girls I met and dated there, even the one I married, had four sons with and divorced. I miss the youthful happy times I had in Tokyo.
The song on the video is "Turning Japanese" by The Vapors released in 1980 written by Dave Fenton who admitted the phrase "turning Japanese" just popped into his head one morning when he woke up, and he viewed it as a love song when writing it. The song can be viewed as a love song or the ramblings of a man in a one sided relationship ostracized by society.
I've got your picture of me and you
You wrote "I love you" I wrote "me too"
I sit there staring and there's nothing else to do
Oh it's in color Your hair is brown
Your eyes are hazel And soft as clouds
I often kiss you when there's no one else around
I've got your picture, I've got your picture
I'd like a million of you all round my cell
I want a doctor to take your picture
So I can look at you from inside as well
You've got me turning up and turning down
And turning in and turning 'round
No sex, no drugs, no wine, no women
No fun, no sin, no you, no wonder it's dark
Everyone around me is a total stranger
Everyone avoids me like a cyclone ranger
That's why I'm turning Japanese
I think I'm turning Japanese
I really think so
I used to go to sushi shops a lot when I was living in Tokyo. Not because I loved sushi so much, but because it was cheaper to drink beer there and it was a good place to meet girls. At a bar a large bottle of beer cost 200 yen. At a sushi shop the same brand and size of beer cost 120 yen. Most of the sushi cost about 10 yen each so I could have a beer and 8 pieces of sushi for 200 yen. A much better deal.

Liberal Men: Keep Trying to Convince Yourselves...
...That you love being emasculated on a daily basis. You love eating tofu and you think it's hot that your girl has more hair under her arms than you have on your head. You don't mind telling people you're a feminist and you think hockey is too violent...even though you're a dude. Yeah, keep telling yourselves that you're happy your girl doesn't care how she looks because then she doesn't hog the bathroom... Sounds great.
F**k you Mark Morford. You keep telling yourself that Conservative women are sexless and docile because this article tells me that deep down you already know that your art show going, organic food shopping, rollerblading, brainwashed self couldn't handle a Republican woman.
Keep on telling it like it really is Ala.
Read Ala's complete article at:
'Well,' replied the customer, a little peeved at the clerk's directness, 'I can assure you that a white gown would be quite appropriate. Believe it or not, despite all my marriages, I remain as innocent as a first-time bride. You see, my first husband was so excited about our wedding, he died as we were checking into our hotel.
My second husband and I got into such a terrible fight in the limo on our way to our honeymoon that we had that wedding annulled immediately and never spoke to each other again.'

There's a shakeup in the cult of neo-Darwinist pseudo-science, and that endearing, monotone high school teacher of “Ferris Bueller” fame is doing the shaking.
With his new feature documentary, “Expelled: No Intelligence Allowed” (opening in theaters April 18), Ben Stein — actor, economist, presidential speechwriter and all around really smart guy — squares off with some of the world's most prominent anti-theist elites as he gets to the heart of the question, “Who are we, and how did we get here?”
“Expelled” is intellectually honest, cerebrally stimulating and delectably provocative.
Nonetheless, there are those who won't like it, not one little bit.
Enter Richard Dawkins. Dawkins, a prominent evolutionist, outspoken atheist and the best-selling author of “The God Delusion,” is featured throughout the film. In one segment, he sits down with Stein for a heart-to-heart. After dancing around several pointed questions about how life began, Dawkins finds himself at a logical impasse with no surplus of sci-fi rhetoric. He's finally forced to concede that, indeed, an intelligent being may have created life on earth. However, that being could not have been “God,” but rather, it must have been some organic, alien life form. Of course, that alien life form has to have been a product of “Darwinian evolution.”
Through tears of wild laughter, audience members watch as Dawkins — apparently grasping the dizzying nature of his own circular argument — turns three shades of red and becomes purply tight-lipped.
“Expelled” has Darwin's disciples scurrying for the shadows. Those secular humanist one-trick-ponies in the media, throughout academia, on the blogosphere and elsewhere are in full damage control. They're doing everything possible to discredit the film before it even opens. It's even been reported that two major networks are refusing to cover the movie. (Gotta love that journalistic objectivity.)
“Expelled” is a must-see. If you're already a person of faith, prepare to have your faith strengthened. And even if you're not, you can't possibly walk away without at least admitting that the debate over who we are and how we got here is far from over.
So hold on to your hat. “Expelled” is nothing short of earthshaking. And, as the scientific community clearly recognizes, its tremors may be felt for some years to come.

Joe died from injuries received from an automobile accident during 1976-77. At the time of Joe's death, Gail was not aware that she was pregnant with Joe's son, Robert Joe Montgomery Jr., until after her husband was buried.
Last year on May 22, 2007, her son SGT Robert Joe Montgomery Jr was killed while serving our country when he stepped on a land mine in Iraq.
In the May 2008 edition of Esquire magazine there will be a special article on Robert Joe Montgomery Jr. titled "The Things That Carried Him".
The Esquire magazine article is on the Esquire web site. It is a long article, 11 web pages with the story of this man, his family and the people who know them. The first page of the article is at:

May GOD watch over and keep his family safe.

Why is it so important to win an international popularity contest? If America is not popular in the world, what are the other nations going to do to us? Stop buying our products? Kick us out of the U.N.? Vote us off the island?
Actually, some of those consequences, particularly the U.N. bit, don't sound so awful.
A new poll commissioned by the BBC World Service will doubtless give Democrats more fits. Questioning respondents in 34 countries, the BBC asked for opinions about 13 countries.
The United States did not fare very well. On average, 47 percent of those questioned had a "mainly negative" view of America's influence in the world, versus only 35 percent with a "mainly positive" view.
Actually, these international polls may not mean much. If the U.S. were truly unpopular, would we be building fences to keep immigrants out? Would the U.S. be the world's third most popular tourist destination? And would the world's people be glad to not have the U.S. available when another catastrophe like the Asian tsunami or the Bosnian crisis looms?

“If you make it good, they will come.” That’s what my friend Sarah said about war movies after reading a recent Washington Post article about how poorly the current crop of Iraq war movies are doing at the box office. Sarah is an Army wife and she is not surprised that recent movies about the war in Iraq have not been successful.
“Are audiences turned off by the war, or are they simply voting against the way filmmakers have depicted it?” Sarah’s answer is, “Make a movie like 300, and people will flock to the theater. Make the soldiers the freaking good guys, and you've got yourself a hit; make them rapists or dupes or Tools of the Bushitler Oil Junta, and no one wants to see your damn movie.” It’s just about that simple, isn’t it?
There is no shortage of amazing stories of heroics coming out of Iraq and Afghanistan. I would love to see a movie about some of those.
I am generalizing when I say this, but it is largely true that in recent movies the American military is the bad guy and the Middle East Muslim terrorist is either misunderstood or non-existent. Americans are smart enough to understand that and they are smart enough not to buy it.
If and when someone decides to make a big budget movie about the heroes of the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, one in which the United States is portrayed as the “good guy,” I predict it will do huge business. American movie fans like stories about war heroes, but so far there has been no Saving Private Ryan set in Iraq or Afghanistan. The stories are out there. They are being told everyday by those in the field. They are being recorded by military bloggers and others attempting to tell the story of the modern American hero. Most of those in the Hollywood community are (to put it mildly) not fans of George W. Bush and many are very strongly opposed to the Iraq War. Evidently hatred of Bush and the war is stronger than even the profit motive in Hollywood.

David Mamet, considered by some to be the greatest living playwright, has proclaimed for all to hear - but few to listen - that he is no longer "a brain-dead liberal."
Mamet uses the phrase "brain-dead liberal" in quotation marks precisely because he was never actually brain dead. Rather, he just told the relevant parts of his brain to play dead whenever inconvenient facts staged an assault on his cranial bunker.
"As a child of the '60s," he recently wrote in a startling and lively essay for the Village Voice, "I accepted as an article of faith that government is corrupt, that business is exploitative, and that people are generally good at heart."
But Mamet has changed his mind. The accretions left from wave after crashing wave of reality made it impossible for him to carry the load of his cognitive dissonance.
Mamet invokes John Maynard Keynes' response to criticism that he changed his mind: "When the facts change, I change my opinion. What do you do, sir?"
Mamet has committed the sin of free-thinking in a world that defines it as "ideological rigidity" while dubbing conformity "diversity." Already, critics are saying his work is slipping. Soon, they will say his work was never that great to begin with (that's what they've been doing to Dennis Miller for his heresy). The more Mamet rejects the divine pieties of the left and thinks for himself, the more the Greek chorus of straitjacketed "free thinkers," their heads shaking in unison, will tsk-tsk Mamet's rigidity.
