Shoes Fly, Don't Bother Me !

It was confirmed this afternoon by Florida authorities that the skeletal remains recently discovered in Orlando were, in fact, the remains of little Caylee Anthony. DNA results showed that the remains matched Caylee's DNA profile and is being classified as a homicide. Although there was little doubt in most people's minds as to the identity of the remains, the findings can at last put an end to the search and the child can be laid to rest.

With all of the other evidence that prosecutors already have on hand against her worthless mother Casey Anthony, discovering the child's remains erases another possible excuse to escape the death penalty. Either way, I am hopeful that she never sees the light of day again, the final judgement of the supreme being notwithstanding.

Illinois Governor Rod Blagojevich held a two minute press conference today to state he was innocent and would fight the charges filed against him. Someone should have told Blago that he could have stated this from the front porch of his home and saved the public the cost of a useless press conference.

I don't profess to be a Rhodes Scholar, but I did pay attention in English class. My biggest peeve with the media is word pronunciation and the biggest example of mispronunciation is none other than President Dufus Dubya Bush and his mangling of the word "nuclear" (new-cle-are not new-cue-lar). Another word that makes me crazy is jewelry which is often mispronounced "jew-ler-ry." Finally, being in real estate for 35 years, the word realtor is often mispronounced as "real-a-tor."

My newest irritations are the stores that use "Xmas" in the advertisements. I assume that they can't spell the word Christ or they are to lazy to write it. Additionally are the words "for free." There is no reason to use the word "for", i.e., "I got this product free (not "for free")." These are supposedly educated people. but you couldn't tell that from the way that they express themselves.

Today's Friday and a good reason to escape to AREA 51 for a little rest and recreation. I plan on meeting with my pal and spiritual advisor Johnnie Walker Black and see what happens.

Picture Of The Day: It seems the Photoshop people are working overtime to come up with funny pictures. The Bush and Obama fans have been having a field day with these easy targets and there has been a plethora of excellent pics that have been photoshopped. Unfortunately you can't post some of them lest ye offend the politically correct dimwits.

Birthdays: William Edward Parry, naval explorer of the Arctic 1790. Albert Abraham Michelson, German-born American physicist 1852, Ralph Richardson, actor 1902, Leonid Brezhnev, Soviet leader 1906, Edith Piaf, Parisian popular singer 1915.

The Hits Just Keep On Coming:

An farmer went to town to see a movie. The ticket agent asked, "Sir, what’s that under your arm?" The old farmer said, "That’s my pet rooster Chucky, wherever I go, Chucky goes." The ticket agent said, "We don’t allow animals in the theater."

The irritated old farmer went around the corner and stuffed the bird down his pants. He returned to the booth, bought a ticket and entered the theater. He sat down next to two old widows named Mildred and Marge.

The movie started and the rooster began to squirm. The old farmer unzipped his pants so Chucky could stick his head out and watch the movie.

Mildred whispered, "Marge, I think this guy next to me is a pervert." Marge replied, "What makes you think that?" Mildred whispered, "He unzipped his pants and is exposing himself."

Marge said, "Well, don’t worry about it, At our age we’ve seen them all." Mildred said, "Yeah, but this one is eating my popcorn."

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

Stay Tuned !

I love your music and wit and some of your sarcasm..Ha! The corruption of old Chicago is legendary and in the old "Gray Lord" days you could pay off a judge or cop most anytime. We were taught to respect authority in our father's house and crooked cops are puke, IMHO. Just my 2 cents.

I heard about Caylee this afternoon, it just kills me everytime I see a photo of that beautiful little girl. We are living in a world that just seems to get more evil by the day.

Let me introduce you to my high school English teacher. For three years she walked into the room and said get out your novels. The girls did and the boys gathered around her desk. A week before exams she wrote some "stuff" on the black board for us to study so she could give a test. In our small town no one would have crossed her as she was the wife of Superintendent of schools.

In days Of yore on the little island of Greece the symbol x represented Christ that's why they use X-Mas today!
The grand parents should go to jail also they found the baby near their house.

It's funny because I am not a stupid person. I went to college and had a 4.0 GPA, but my grammar stinks! I pronounce words incorrectly and my punctuation sucks lol. It's laziness. Oh well. I can understand it being aggravating when it comes to the president though.

If that woman killed her daughter, I hope she rots in hell.

Merry CHRISTmas! *M*

Where did you get your pictures?? I loved them!
I agree with you on the pronounciation of things. People are becoming so lazy in speaking. I've heard jewelry pronounced "Jury" many times. I hate it! LOL!
Have a good day!
