My pal, Linda, who pens Linda's World, has always been there for me and her name is one I see on almost every journal I visit. I try to visit everyone's journal as I can, but Linda seems to have the time to stop by many journals to leave a kind word. Her comments are honest and show me that she actually reads the entry as opposed to many who flit from journal to journal playing comment tag. I am please to honor my pal Linda with the TAC Award.

One would think that a great deal of thought would be invested in choosing a name for a child. After all, one normally has nine months to arrive at such a decision. We are all aware, however, that there are some parents that cannot quite grasp that thought and the results are names like Johnny Johnson, Willie Williams, Tommy Thompson and the like.
Many names are taken from the Bible and from literature as well and so we have names like John, Paul, George and the ever memorable Ringo. Others parents are more inventive and these are the names that make you scratch your head and say "wha.....?" It is said that "a mind is a terrible thing to waste" but that is assuming one has a mind to waste.
Names like Lexus, Plaxico, Lavernius and the ever popular name for twins, Orangello and Lemongello (spawned from orange jello and lemon jello), make me think that besides having to pass an I.Q. test to be allowed to procreate, a further inquiry should be made as to the choice of names for children. Then again, we could just let them name the children anything they like and enjoy the amusement.
The media continues to suffer from Obamamania and understandably so with the current state of the Union and the history that has Obama made by becoming the first half white and half black president. Over the weekend, it became a little over the top as five retired NBA players watched a video of Obama on the basketball court and offered their opinions as to his skills and how he could become a better basketball player.
Methinks the media could better serve the American public by having a group of retired congressmen watch a video of his campaign promises and comment as to how he could comply with what he said he would do.
Picture Of The Day: Movies you'd like to see is the theme for today's entry and I was fortunate to find this political parody on the "The Sting." With that idea firmly planted in my mind, I located a few more movies that stray a bit from the original, but are much more poignant. Perhaps these takeoffs may become sequels.
Birthdays: Mary I, queen 1516, Louis Comfort Tiffany, American painter and designer 1848, Len Deighton, thriller writer 1929, Yoko Ono, conceptual artist 1933. 1)

The Hits Just Keep On Coming:
A woman went to her doctor for a physical and the doctor asked what contraceptive she used. She told him she was not using a contraceptive. When doctor warned her that she could become pregnant, she replied, "that's impossible."
The doctor ask her why she believed she could not become pregnant. The woman said, "Because we do it the 'other way' so there's no chance." The doctor said, "You can still become pregnant."
1)I was dyslexci as a chlid and wrote about it in my dairy. 2) My brother Kirt and I were asked to audition for a weekly country music show in the late 1950's but we chickened out. 3) I have hit the Florida lottery several times.

The following week his friend returns to see if the vet helped. The farmer looks delighted and says, "My bull has taken care of all my cows, broke through the fence, and has even serviced all my neighbor's cows! His friend says, "What did the vet do to that bull? The farmer replies, "Just gave him some pills."
His friend asks, "What kind of pills?" The farmer says, I don't know, but they sort of taste like chocolate."
Just as the hunter reached the blind, he heard a loud bang coming from the wife's position. As the Texan ran up to her, he saw that she was holding her gun on a man nearby and shouting, "It's my deer! Get away from It!" The sheepish-looking stranger just nodded slowly and said, "OK, lady..... It's your deer.... Just let me get my saddle off of it!"
