The Idiots At AOL Responsible For Terminating Journals Have Been Nominated For The CAT Award !

Friday is finally here and not a moment too soon. The way the economy has been reacting this week kinda makes you want to have a cocktail. I'll be heading over to AREA 51 this evening to see my pals and see what's going on. It's karaoke night and with the change in ownership at Lakes Cafe and Pub, it should be interesting to see what's up with the new crowd.

The Cat's Ass Trophy (CAT) Award has one nomination from Jude, author of My Way Again, who nominated the idiots at AOL that were responsible for the demise of AOL Journals. Although I smell a shoo-in nominee, nominations are open until Monday at 12:00 noon, so if you spot 'em, nominate 'em.

This Date In History 1845 The Naval School (later the U.S. Naval Academy) opens in Annapolis, Maryland. 1871 The great Chicago fire is put out; it has destroyed nearly a third of central Chicago. 1886 The first tuxedo is worn at a dinner club in New York.

1913 The Panama Canal, an American-built waterway connecting the Atlantic and Pacific oceans, is completed with the explosion of the Gamboa Dike. 1973 After pleading no contest to tax evasion, Spiro Agnew becomes the first U.S. vice president to resign in disgrace.

Picture Of The Day One of my favorite times of the year is Autumn and the beautiful song "Autumn Leaves" comes to mind. With Autumn comes the obligatory changing of the leaves and the lovely colors of fall begin to display themselves.

Birthdays Henry Cavendish, British physicist and chemist 1731, Giuseppe Verdi, Italian opera composer 1814, Helen Hayes, American actor 1900, Thelonius Monk, American jazz pianist and composer 1917.

The Hits Just Keep On Coming

A man was in a terrible accident, and his 'manhood' was mangled and torn from his body. His doctor assured him that modern medicine could give him back his manhood, but that his insurance wouldn't cover the surgery since it was considered cosmetic.

The doctor said the cost would be $3,500 for 'small,' $6,500 for 'medium,' and $14,000 for 'large.' The man was sure he would want a medium or large, but the doctor urged him to talk it over with his wife before he made any decision. The man called his wife on the phone and explained their options.

The doctor came back into the room, and found the man looking dejected. 'Well, what have the two of you decided?' asked the doctor. The man said, "She'd rather remodel the kitchen."

A husband and wife came for counseling after 15 years of marriage. When asked what the problem was, the wife went into a passionate, painful tirade listing every problem they had ever had in the 15 years they had been married.

She went on and on and on: neglect, lack of intimacy, emptiness, loneliness, feeling unloved and unlovable, an entire laundry list of un-met needs she had endured over the course of their marriage.

Finally, after allowing this to go on for a sufficient length of time, the therapist got up, walked around the desk and, after asking the wife to stand, embraced and kissed her passionately. The woman shut up and quietly sat down as though in a daze.

The therapist turned to the husband and said, "This is what your wife needs at least three times a week Can you do this?" The husband thought for a moment and replied,.. "Well, I can drop her off here on Mondays and Wednesdays, but on Friday's, I fish! "

That's it for today my little butter beans. Have a great and safe weekend and more on Monday.

Stay Tuned !

Hey Jimmy! I have to say nominated AOL for the Cats Ass is a stellar idea. I think they deserve it for sure! Thats okay though, we will adapt and they can fall back into that fiery pit they came from, right? ;) As always, I enjoy the trivia and jokes. Where you come up with all this I dont know, but I sure do like the way you present it every day. :) Thanks for all you do. Hugs, Kelly
