The Wednesday Night Therapy session for the resident aliens in AREA 51 at Lakes Cafe and Pub went well last evening and many local, national and world problems were successfully resolved. I had to call on the services of the mysterious Red Truck Man for a ride to our watering hole because my car, after recently being equiped with a new battery, has decided that it is in need of an alternator and refuses to charge my battery. Since I've virtually always been self employed and my entire financial portfolio is based on the domino theory, it is quite likely that I will seek out the services once again of Red Truck Man for Friday's rendezvous at Lakes Cafe.
Hector and Lourdes, Al and Lydia, Dr. Marc and Rosie, and myself were the hardcore representation of AREA 51 and we were later joined by Emilio (who was celebrating his birthday), Mario and Marcelino. The dart league was there in full force and no one was hit by errant darts. Unfortunately, not many of the targets were hit either.
The tiny town of Jena, Louisiana is brimming with protestors as I make today's entry. While some of the things that have happened there need to be addressed, it is overkill at best and I believe the black representatives who are protesting could have gone there with a much smaller throng and still made their point. Thinking as an entrepreneur however, if I lived there, I think I'd have a roadside stand selling bottled water or whatever product that crowd purchases. Hell I'd cater to my ex-mother-in law if it was profitable, especially for one day.
As always, the usual patronizing idiots are there including (A) Jesse Jackson and the perennial CAT award winner, (A) "Podium Al" Sharpton. These two idiots prey on their own people, chasing after anything that gets them publicity. Their followers, however, have to pay their own way to these events and, in my opinion, I'm sure these monies would be better spent if the protest was better organized and a select number of people would go to protest. It doesn't take a machine gun to kill a mosquito. But, that's just me.
The Pictures: My pal Anne, who writes the journal "Saturday's Child" was kind enough to email me these adorable pictures of a deer and a rabbit, who, by the looks of it, have established a relationship and are obviously fast friends. You can read Anne's journal by clicking Saturday's Child on the left portion of this journal under the title "Other Journals", or just click the link below.

The Hits Just Keep On Coming: Thanks to my pal, Lourdes !
In a number of carefully controlled trials, scientists have demonstrated that if we drink one liter of water per day, at the end of the year we would have consumed one kilo of Escherichia coli (E. COLI) bacteria, found in feces.
In other words, we are consuming one kilo of poop, yearly. We do not run that risk, however, when we are drinking wine (or scotch,vodka,rum, gin,beer or any other liquor). This is because alcohol has to go through a purification process of boiling, filtering and/or fermentation.
Therefore, it is better to drink wine and talk stupidly than to drink water and be full of shit ! This has been a public service announcement.
That's it for today, my little honey bees. More tomorrow.
Stay Tuned !
