Sarah Palin My New Hero

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:

Politics is not the art of the possible.

It consists of choosing between the disastrous and the unpalatable.

One morning a blind bunny was hopping down the bunny trail and tripped over a snake and fell, kerplop right on his twitchy little nose. 'Oh please excuse me,' said the bunny. 'I didn't mean to trip over you, but I'm blind and can't see.' 'That's perfectly all right,' replied the snake. 'To be sure, it was my fault. I didn't mean to trip you, but I'm blind too, and I didn't see you coming.

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

Bionic Man On The Way

Robo-skeleton lets paralyzed walk
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.

Ready To Go

Remember the video with the 7 year old girl practicing with a machine gun that I posted in June 2008 at:

How about when they grow up? Here are some big girls practicing and check out the little old lady in the wheelchair at the end of this video.

BBQ'd Bourbon Steak

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.

A Quick Ice Age

Last Ice Age happened in less than year say scientists
By Angus Howarth
02 August 2008

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.

Oops! Sorry About That.

In December 1993, Atlanta attorney Dennis Scheib stopped by the prosecutor's office on his way to court to represent a new client in a criminal case. Just outside the office, he saw two officers chasing a man down the hall, and he joined in to help. The three men caught the escapee and handcuffed him.

Later Scheib learned the man was the client he had been on his way to court to represent.

I don't know if this is a true story, but it's funny anyway.
