We've Only Just Begun !

And a happy Monday to all ! Fret not, today's almost over and tomorrow's the bridge to Humpday. Speaking of humps, Paris is still in the pokey, Brittany's cat has not been spotted in weeks and Lindsay's still in a coma,...er, rehab.

Three rolls of toilet paper were stolen from the Marshal County Courthouse in Iowa. Caught redhanded, the culprit, Suzanne Marie Butts ( I can't make this stuff up) was caught red-handed with the goods. Because of four previous arrests for theft, she could possible receive a sentence of up to two years in the pennitentary. Good job, people, your priorities are in order and an award could be in your future.  

Attorney General, Alberto ("I don't recall") Gonzales, is in Miami (have you ever noticed that all these conferences are never in Iraq or Arkansas or Iceland?) for a anti-terrorism conference. The Congress is currently preparing for a no-confidence vote. What's wrong with this picture?

The Pictures: Today's pictures are kinda like a wedding. Something old, something new, something borrowed....mostly borrowed. Some beautiful pictures from around the world, a few I "borrowed" and yes, the "usual suspects".

Just A Note: I've had several questions about navigating my journal and I want to be of help. Underneath the pictures, there is a button that you can click and see all of the pictures of the day. You can also click the picture itself and you will be able to view the picture larger. Anywhere in this journal that you aim your pointer and a line appears underneath, you can click this line and it will take you "somewhere". This includes the "Tags" at the end of every entry. Text that is already underlined prior to pointing your arrow at same, will not respond. Finally, at the bottom of every entry, next to "comments", you will see "show recent" and "add you own". If you click "show", you can read the comments posted for that day. If you click "add", you may add your comment for that day's entry. I hope this helps.   

This Date In History: 1770; British Captain, James Cook, becomes the first European to discover the Great Barrier Reef off the northeastern coast of Australia. 1950; Seventeen months after suffering life-threatening injuries in a car accident, Ben Hogan returns to win his second of four U.S. Open Golf Championships. 1987; Margaret Thatcher becomes the first Prime Minister elected to three consecutive terms as Prime Minister of the United Kingdom.

Birthdays: Jeannette Rankin, first woman in congress (1880), Jacques Cousteau, marine explorer and film maker (1910), Vince Lombardi, head coach of the Green Bay Packers (1913), Joe Montana, football player (1956).

The Hits Just Keep On Coming:

A lot of people can't figure out why we have a shortage of oil. Well, I have the answer. It seems nobody has bothered to check the oil and it's purely geographic.

Our oil is located in: Alaska, California, Coastal Florida, Coastal New Orleans, Kansas, Oklahoma, Pennsylvania and Texas.

Our DIPSTICKS are located in Washington, D.C. ! Any Questions ?

That's it for today, my little ducklings. More tomorrow.

Stay Tuned !

I think it's very nobel of you to acknowledge the birthday of someone in the packing industry. Those on minimum wage are so frequently overlooked!
