Anyone who was born in the 50′s, 60′s and 70′s… We are the last generation who played in the street. We are the 1st who played video games, the last to record songs off the radio on a cassette tape. We walked over a mile with no worries of being taken. We learned how to program the VCR before anyone else. We played from Atari to Nintendo. We are the generation of Tom and Jerry, Looney Toons, and Captain Kangaroo. We traveled in cars without seat belts or air bags; lived without cell phones. We did not have flat screen TVs or surround sound – in fact, we had to get up and walk over to the TV to change the station. iPods, the internet, computers, Facebook and Twitter were inconceivable. But nevertheless – WE HAD A GREAT TIME!!

Is your blog a bit boring? No one commenting? Here is a cartoon which will help liven up your comment fields should you follow these very simple instructions. I know I have seen it work on many other sites – especially YouTube.
This first video is an adorable French Bulldog pup, all dressed in his (or hers?) Christmas sweater. “Frenchie” here surprises his people by saying, “I love you.” LOL… apparently the original has become viral as this was featured on the national news this morning. This one is an upload by “Petsami” and I cannot find the original. BTW… I HATE Petsami’s logo… the cat face with the crossed bones beneath it. Looks like a “death” or “poison” label to me. Anyway, just had to point that out – it’s been bugging me since I subbed their channel.
Another goodie found on Facebook! I know many of you are anti-Facebook, and I can certainly understand why. I am not on there much for socialization myself, but I do find some GREAT material and info on there – and some very liberal and intelligent pages and links. Here is one I just saw come across my wall from the FB Page, “Whiskey and the morning after blog.” Since I don’t know the name of the owner of the page, I will just call him “Whiskey.” Apparently Whiskey went on a little rant recently and many of his followers loved it so he created this little graphic which includes his rant:
“I propose, in order to ‘protect the sanctity of marriage’ that we institute a 3-year waiting period from the time of your engagement until a marriage license is issued. Once married, you must wait 5-years from the time you separate until you divorce and you are forever barred from getting married again…”
Posted by a friend on mine on Facebook, here we have a photo of the 1908 Gold Medalist in Levitation. Levitation was one of the most sought after gold medals for many decades. However, it began fading out shortly after 1940 – the opening of the first McDonalds, which was the Dick and Mac McDonald Bar-B-Q restaurant in San Bernardino CA.
The athletes of the sport of Levitation fought to keep it alive, but sadly the ability to levitate quickly became extinct after 1948. This has been correlated to the point in time when McDonald’s Bar-B-Q changed to McDonalds Famous Hamburgers and reduced their menu to nine items, including the 15-cent hamburger. The fat intake from these sandwiches, as well as from the rapidly growing variety of fast food restaurants all over the world, was simply too much on the human body.
I can not stop laughing! I have had a grin from ear to ear (my muscles are beginning to hurt) for over an hour now while reading the news from London and watching various footages. It is clearly apparent that Mitt Romney is NOT in high standing in London. In fact, when I was watching CNN this morning, a British correspondant hit the streets and asked people passing by if they knew who Mitt Romney was. No one had ever heard of him. Of course, this is just one area of London and only a few dozen were asked, but looks like Mittens is batting .000 in that section of London.
According to The Onion:
In a press conference to reporters, company representatives said the homophobic new sandwich will include the national fast food chain’s trademark fried chicken filet wrapped in a piece of specially-smoked No Homo ham that would be topped with a slice of Swiss cheese and lathered in a creamy new Thousand Island-based Fag Punching sauce.
Okay, I know there are some VERY creative people out there. I must have laughed for a straight ten minutes when I saw this photo – the happy, HAPPY look on the seal’s face. Alas… captioning is NOT my forte. So let’s hear it! Give me one, give me a dozen – don’t be shy. There are no wrong answers. Then I will create and post them all like I did for the “Dog and Cat… Caught in the Act!” image.
July 22nd (international numeric date is 22/7/year) is Pi Approximation Day and celebrates the discovery of the calculation of the Math Symbol Pi – which is approximately calculated at 22/7 (22 divided by 7).
Peter Kevin Connell from Today in Heritage History warns:
“Please be courteous driving today and try to avoid all the International Mathematician Parades. Most mathematician marchers generally have problems negotiating traffic while dressed in Rhombus and Trapezoid costumes.”
Time to let the problems, the job, the kids, whatever may be bringing you stress… it is time to let those things go away for a while. Humor is an excellent medicine for most situations… and for no situation in particular.
Enjoy the Sunday Funnies dated today, July 22nd, 2012.
NEW YORK (The Borowitz Report)—Republican Presidential choice Mitt Romney shocked the political world today by releasing a picture of his choice for Vice-President—a man who, political insiders admit, was on nobody’s short or long list.
The photo shows Mr. Romney’s Veep pick, whose face was immediately recognizable to millions of Americans, wearing his trademark top hat and carrying what appears to be a moneybag, with currency of various denominations trailing behind him.
My brain is still hurting after watching this animated video featuring a new products from Amazon called “Amazon Yesterday Shipping.” Do you recall when you saw The Terminator for the first time? If you were like me and many of my friends, we found ourselves lost in the frequent discussion of time travel and how going back in time will greatly alter the future, then returning to the future to see what changes have occurred. Yeah, my brain is hurting, too.
Oh, what a tangled web we weave…. Late last week, it has been brought to the public’s attention that there are some contradictions when it comes to whether or not Romney was an active part of Bain Capital after Feb. 11, 1999, when he left to “rescue” the SLC Olympics (by using tax payers dollars).
There have been findings of Romney’s signatures on Bain documents and he is listed as CEO, lone stockholder, etc. If this all comes out to be true, Romney could potentially be brought up on charges of fraud to the SEC.
Therefore… the BEST Mitt Romney meme ever as Romney looks towards Obama as his attorney – and Obama flat out disses Mittens.

Another Friday the 13th has arrived, the third and last one this year. Did you know that exactly 13 weeks ago was a Friday, April 13? And that exactly 13 weeks before that was a Friday, January 13? The fact is that any leap year starting with a Sunday will have a Friday the 13th in January, April and July.
Three Friday the 13ths also happen in any non-leap year that starts on a Thursday. In that case, the Friday the 13ths come in February, March and November.
The year 2009 was the last time we had three non-leap-year Friday the 13ths. The next time will be the year 2015. Notice each of those years is three years before and after 2012.
Here are some photos which due to the angle and “perfect” timing of snapping the camera, the image just doesn’t look like what it should be. Illusional and hilarious. My favorite is still the one that went viral a few months back of a party scene featuring two women where the arm from the woman in front gives the illusion that her friend immediately behind her is naked. The thumbnail to the right. The full size if in the post further down.
Oh, I will definitely agree with this. And I’m sure Don in Massachusetts will, too.
Stop me if you’ve heard this one. It’s a “groaner” alright.
Virginia TV CBS 6 meteorologist Aaron Justus decided to have some fun on Saturday by spicing up the weather forecast. The forecast starts out like any other forecast with Aaron standing in front of a map. However, rather than the normal summer weather, he warns up a volcanic eruption which will produce a temperature of 400 degrees in Charlottesville, Virginia.
