It's Hump Day !


It's Hump Day and I, for one, am ready for a trip to AREA 51 at Lakes Cafe and Pub. The last couple of weeks have been trying on all of us, not only with the economy but with the pilgrimage to our new home. It hasn't been easy having to learn all these new tricks, but I'm rather proud of our J-Land community for it's quick adjustment.
And
So, like any other camel herder, I'll be off to the AREA 51 oasis for some rest and recreation. It'll be fun to see my pals and catch up on the local gossi....er, news.
And
I'd like to welcome my pal, Jackie, author of Life In Bama to Blogspot. Jackie was one of my first readers and has also become one of my best pals. Please take time to click the above link and stop by to visit Jackie, one of the first honorary members of AREA 51. I appreciate it!
And
This Date In History: 1815: Napoleon I arrives on the island of St Helena to begin his final exile. 1917: Mata Hari is executed by the French after being suspected of spying for Germany during World War I. 1928: The Graf Zeppelin airship makes the first-ever commercial transatlantic flight. 1945: Pierre Laval, prime minister of Nazi-occupied Vichy France, is executed by firing squad for treason against France.
And
1946: Hermann Göring poisons himself two hours before his scheduled execution for war crimes during World War II. 1894: French army officer Alfred Dreyfus is arrested for spying, beginning the Dreyfus Affair, one of the most controversial episodes in French history.
And
Picture Of The Day A pictoral salute to all AREA 51 members, to My Perfect Martini (you know who you are) and to my pal, Anne, author of Saturday's Child and who provided me with this shot.
And
Birthdays: Virgil, Roman poet (70 BC), P. G. Wodehouse, Anglo-American writer (1881), Friedrich Neitzsche, German philosopher and poet (1844), J. K. Galbraith, Canadian-born American economist (1908), Arthur Schlesinger, Jr., American historian (1917).
And
The Hits Just Keep On Coming
and
A big earthquake with the strength of 8.1 on the Richter scale has hit Mexico. 150,000 Mexicans have died and over a million are Injured. The country is totally ruined and the government doesn't know where to start with providing help to rebuild. The rest of the world is in shock.
and
Canada is sending troopers to help the Mexican army control the riots. The European community (except France) is sending food and money.
and
The United States, not to be outdone, is sending 150,000 replacement Mexicans.
and
There are many stories related to the sinking of the Titanic. Some have just come to light due to the success of the recent movie. For example, most people don't know that back in 1912 Hellman's mayonnaise was manufactured in England. The Titanic was carrying 12,000 jars of the condiment scheduled for delivery in Vera Cruz, Mexico which was to be the next port of call for the great ship after New York City.
and
The Mexican people were eagerly awaiting delivery and were disconsolate at the loss. So much so that they declared a national day of mourning which they still observe today. It is known, of course, as... Sinko de Mayo.
and
Amy, a blonde Texas city girl, marries a Texas rancher. One morning, on his way out to check on the cows the rancher says to Amy, "The artificial-insemination man is coming over to impregnate one of our cows today. I drove a nail into the two-by-four just above the cow's stall in the barn. You show him where the cow is when he gets here, okay?"
and
So the rancher leaves for the fields. After a while, the artificial-insemination man arrives and knocks on the front door. Amy takes him down the barn. They walk along a long row of Cows and when she sees the nail, she tells him, "This is the one.....right here." Terribly impressed by what he seemed to think just might be another ditzy blonde, the man asks, "Tell me little lady, how did you know this is the cow to be bred?"
and
The blonde says confidently,"That's simple. By the nail over its stall." Then the man asks, "What's the nail for?" She turns to walk away, and with complete confidence, says, "I guess it's to hang your pants on."
and
That's it for today, my little cork screws. More on Friday.
and
Stay Tuned !
