Mundane Monday came in wet and windy, a perfect setting for the demise and ultimate death of my car's alternator. I took my car today to have a new alternator installed and my leaky front tire replaced. Yea, though I walk into the valley of the shadow of debt, I fear that it is a much better idea than wearing out a perfectly good pair of shoes.
By the way, this is my second entry for today. Unfortunately, you do not get to read the first entry as my lighting-quick mind and my nimble little fingers clicked the cancel button instead of the save button. Getting old is a good thing! I can tell you all my secrets because you can't remember them either. It's a shame though because the little grey haired lady that I was helping across the street today turned out to be my girlfriend.
Columbia University hosted Iranian President Mahamoud Ahmadinejad today, an idea that virtually everyone else in the nation protested. The president of Columbia, Lee Bolinger, stated that he would vigorously "grill' the Iranian president, which he did, but also embarrased himself by resorting to name-calling during the Iranian leader's introduction. All in all, it was a bad idea, a waste of time and media coverage, and allowed Ahmadinejad a forum to voice his idiotic views and opinions.
More Politics: President Bush said today that he fully believed that Hillary Clinton will be the democratic candidate for president... Oback Obama received the endorsement of the Corrections Officers Benevolent Association. Do I hear a pardon for the brothers in the future?
The Pictures: As I was looking into my library for photographs today, I paused at my music album covers and got a bit nostalgic. Today's photographs are some of the musical artists that I enjoy. I hope you enjoy them, as well.

The Hits Just Keep On Coming:
I met a police office with Alzheimers. He pulled me over and said, "Do I know why I pulled you over? I don't want to say my girlfriend's stupid, but on her last application for employement, in the box marked "sex", she entered, "occasionally", and where it said "sign here", she entered, "Sagittarius". In the restaurant, a cowboy watched as the chesty blonde waitress walk towards him. When asked her what the special was, the annoyed waitress pointed towards a sign that read, "Lobster Tail Beer". The cowboy grinned and said, "I'll have that, it's my three favorite things!"
That's it for today, my little peacocks. More tomorrow.
