Do you remember that teacher who changed every thing for you? Was it the English teacher who told you that you have a novelist/poet stuck inside of you? Or that math teacher who pushed you just a little harder till you found your inner Steven Hawkins? For me it was Miss. Rood, my 2nd and 3rd grade teacher that introduced me to Museums and art galleries on field trips and gave me the confidence to strive for what I want. Now it's time to pay them back... go HERE.

Digg - Doctors May Be Third Leading Cause of Death

Doctors Are The Third Leading Cause of Death in the US, Causing 250,000 Deaths Every Year This week's issue of the Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA)


Shrek the turd...eeerrr I mean the Third, or do I? As a devotee to the Shrek movies I had to see the Third and as a devotee I liked it. As a stand alone movie... I would pass or wait for the DVD. Slow, dark with a weak plot and soundtrack. The bad soundtrack is the most disappointing... you have been warned.

PS Happy birthday Carrie my love & best friend! (not to mention my wife)

Train passengers asked to get out and push | Oddly Enough | Reuters

Train passengers asked to get out and push | Oddly Enough | Reuters: "Train passengers asked to get out and push"

This reminds me of a train trip I took in 1994. The trains locomotive failed and we where stranded outside of a small town in Georgia called, if I remember right, Mound. The towns mayor and citizens greeted us with open arms by opening city hall (it was a Sunday) and the womans auxiliary showed up with tons of food, apple pies, cakes , lasagna etc... it was great. They even allowed us to use the phones to call family to let them know we where all right but would be late, very late. After several hours Amtrak came up with two plans to get us to our destination (New Orleans) the first was to wait several more hours for buses to show up and drive us the rest of the way. The second plan was for those adventurous souls who would not mine riding on a train with no electricity. A freight engine had been brought in to bring the train to New Orleans but because the fright engine and the passenger cars use different electrical systems there would be no power. The temperature was a humid ninety plus and there would be no AC or food! So after a quick run to the local store for food and beverages ;) a few hearty souls headed out on the crippled train, myself included. It was dark, hot and very weird. The only light came from back up batteries between the car sections, so of course this is where we all congregated. It turned out to be the best part of my trip. I met a ton of people and we had a party, the beer eerr, I mean beverages where drank fast so that they would not get too warm, food was shared and memories where made. To the cute blond from Sweden, sorry I did not find you in LA a week latter and too the middle aged man from Dallas who bewildered all of us with is ventriloquism, you made our night.

On a side note I just found out that one of my most favorite/ridiculed authors is very ill and has been for a while. For any who do not know Robert Jordan the author of the endless tomes call the Wheel of Time series is suffering from Amyloidosis. My good wishes and prayers go out to you and your family, good luck.

Tampabay: Artist's work looked familiar

"If you're in the business of 'clever, ' there's sort of a promise, a covenant: 'I promise to be clever, and you promise to love me and my cleverness, "

A quote by Jim Benton


Green Bay Press-Gazette - Police Calls

Green Bay Press-Gazette - Police Calls: "Theft: A 21-year-old De Pere man was arrested Wednesday for disorderly conduct and shoplifting $10 worth of pregnancy test kits from Woodman's, 2400 Dousman St. When asked by police who the kits were for, the man just sighed.

Admittedly, our niche role in the human species might seem marginal, quaint, or even silly at the present time, if you're of a very boring, practical, and short-sighted mindset.

But just wait … wait until the whole world is a giant post-nuclear wasteland populated by clashing tribes of biker warriors all battling over some rare and precious resource like gas or water or fertile women. Then, let me tell ya, the instincts we refused to squelch, the fears that we trained ourselves to ignore, and the skills that we honed in the lost spaces of cities are all going to prove invaluable. And the bozos who didn't get it are going to be sitting on the radioactive surface scratching their tumors and gnawing on rat bones left behind by mutant cockroaches, while WE rule the mighty underground cities that we forged in the lost remains of massive subterranean military installations.

If they're really lucky, maybe we'll allow them to fight one another to the death in the post-apocalyptic gladiator-style games we run for entertainment in order to placate the masses. And all kinds of tough scantily-clad post-apocalypse babes will beg to reproduce with us.

TwinCities.com - Minneapolis / Strip club chain may buy Schieks after all:


Minneapolis sent two officers on a cross-country trip to tour seven of the chain's strip clubs. Grant Wilson, of the licensing department, traveled with police investigator David Rodriguez on a four-day trip in late March and early April to get a peek at the sexual contact between customers and employees, customers being allowed to touch their breasts and simulated sex in their laps, stuff like that, "Most guys think it would be a dream assignment, but it was very grueling,' given the late nights, the documentation involved and the travel between two states, he said."

(I did edit the above to tickle the funny bone just a little.)


BlueHour | Priorities: "Priorities"

Damn it's a little dusty around here...

Ok folks (like anyone is gonna actually read this after a three month poof, but here goes) I'm back. My DSL arrived yesterday and here I am. I had a lot of funny pic's and comments stored up but they all seem way to stale now. I even thought about tossing in the towel on this blog and starting new. But it's way to long in the works, so I'll just start plodding along with the pic's and stuff.

So whats new, well Carrie the wife has a new job taking care of squishies or at least that is what she calls them. Squishies are babies, you know those little versions of you and I that we all hope turn out better than we did even though they have the disadvantage of your illegal drug/alcohol/prescription drug/environmentally poisoned polluted genes and mental instability. I on the other hand have chosen to embark on a great new adventure, I'm headed back to school )after fourteen years) to get my MBA and working through a temp agency for spending change. Till later, cya.
