Saving the Planet(Riiiiight!)

Well, since we are saving all of that money on our insurance, how about we buy a "green" car? Hmmm? What was that, you already drive an electric? Shame on you, and on all of those stupid-assed movie stars that tell you what to drive!


     Take your basic, average electric car, and what does it need? Well, electricity, for one thing! Well, let's just see how "green" our little car is. Wait, it has no gas engine, so it emits ZERO hydrocarbons! Really? When you plug it in, where does the electricity come from? Magic? No. It comes from the power company, the same power company that burns COAL to make that electricity! That's right, COAL. The epitome of hydro carbons! Carbon itself! Clean? I think not!


       A better alternative? Ethanol. In 2006, we took the equivalent of the emmissions of 1.2 million cars out of the atmosphere just by burning Ethanol. And that was only SOME OF US! Don't be mislead by what others tell you. Movie stars always want to lend their names to things, and they don't have a clue what they are talking about! Most of them should just show a picture of their ass when they are speaking, that is where most of what they are saying comes from, anyway.


      Questions, comments, snide remarks? You know where to find me!

Saving Money with Geico

So, if I switch my car insurance to Geico, I can save about $350:00 per year, AND, it is so easy, a caveman could do it! So, after that, if I switch to Allstate, they promise another savings of at least $350:00 also! The way I figure it, if I switch twice, they will actually PAY ME to have insurance! You just can't beat that deal!

     Now, the way that I see things, this is a good deal for me, and for the rest of you, as well! If I continue to wait for two more years, when I turn 50, I can sign up with the AARP Insurance, and save up to $500:00 per year! Why worry about being "taken care of" in your later years? According to these idiots, we can all have auto coverage, AND get paid as well!!!! Sign me up!

      On the homefront, I am still sick with whatever it was that I had! Anytime I stand up, I am dizzy as hell. I still have a little cough, although not as bad as before. Thank Goodness I quit smoking! I think this sickness, plus smoking, would have killed me this time around! My doctor is quitting her practice. She has been seeing me since 1993! I HATE CHANGING DOCTORS! You spend all those  years getting used to one person, and they quit on you! Well, she IS 71 years old, and she needs a rest. I know that she routinely puts in 16 hour days, and maybe more at times.

           That should catch you up for a bit, now. Stay out of trouble, and you know just where to find me if you want to!


;-) Holla' If You Hear Me!!! ;-)

Sick Days

Hey, there. I am finally getting back to normal, thanks to contracting the flu this past weekend. Nasty little bug, that one! Kept me down very well indeed! Well, my youngest daughter showed me just WHY she is my daughter the other day when she said to me, "hey, pop, guess what?" I said, "ok, I'll bite, what"?  "People are like 'Slinkys'; dull, boring, seemingly devoid of fun, but, they both still bring a smile to your face when you push them down a flight of stairs!" I love that kid! Here are a few more for your amusement....


Spreading the Stupidity...

Only in drugstores make the sick walk all the way to the back of the store to get their prescriptions while healthy people can buy cigarettes at the front.

Only in people order double cheeseburgers, large fries, and a diet coke.

Only in banks leave both doors open and then chain the pens to the counters.

Only in America we leave cars worth thousands of dollars in the driveway and put our useless junk in the garage.

Only in we buy hot dogs in packages of ten and buns in packages of eight.

Only in America they have drive-up ATM machines with Braille lettering


Why the sun lightens our hair, but darkens our skin?

Why women can't put on mascara with their mouth closed?

Why don't you ever see the headline 'Psychic Wins Lottery'?

Why is 'abbreviated' such a long word?

Why is it that doctors call what they do 'practice'?

Why is lemon juice made with artificial flavor, and dishwashing liquid made with real lemons?

Why is the man who invests all your money called a broker?

Why is the time of day with the slowest traffic called rush hour?

Why isn't there mouse-flavored cat food?

Why didn't Noah swat those two mosquitoes?

Why do they sterilize the needle for lethal injections?

You know that indestructible black box that is used on airplanes? Why don't they make the whole plane out of that stuff?!

Why don't sheep shrink when it rains?

Why are they called apartments when they are all stuck together?

If con is the opposite of pro, is Congress the opposite of progress?

If flying is so safe, why do they call the airport the terminal?
