A "White" Black Bear Discovered

An exciting discovery was made last week on Whistler-Blackcomb mountain, British Columbia, by guide, Kathy Jenkins, of a "white-ish", carmel-colored cub in association with a known, resident black mother black bear during a tour.

Jenkins said, "After 23 years of research, I have seen cubs ranging black, reddish brown, chocolate brown to blonde (after summer bleaching of coat) but, never have seen in this population, a cub with pelage this light to almost white. This is not an albino but rather, the cub is possibly a result of both parents having a recessive gene."

The News As I See It: Bernie Sanders has met with Hillary Clinton. Hillary says the meeting was to talk about unifying the party. Bernie said the meeting as to give Hillary one last opportunity to bow out gracefully.

Obama gave a speech in which he angrily called out Republicans for being too obsessed with his refusal to use the term "radical Islam". Although he was unable to complete the phrase "radical Islamic terrorists", it was a good start. He only stuttered twice, used the bully pulpit to blame guns in America and then wrapped it up by blaming Bush.

This Date In History: 1215; King John sealed the Magna Carta. 1775; George Washington was appointed head of the Continental Army by the Second Continental Congress. 1836; Arkansas became the 25th state in the United States.

1844; Charles Goodyear was granted a patent for rubber vulcanization. 1849; James Polk, the 11th president of the United States, died in Nashville, Tennessee. 1923; Lou Gehrig made his New York Yankee debut as a pinch runner.

1992; Vice President Dan Quayle's "potatoe" spelling incident. 1996; Ella Fitzgerald, the ''first lady of song,'' died in Beverly Hills, California. 2002; Rolling Stone Mick Jagger was knighted by Queen Elizabeth.

Picture Of The Day: Yep, you're right Obama. The violence is cause by guns.....moron.

Printable Things I Never Told You: 1) My son asked, "Am I adopted?" I told him, "Not yet, but we're hopeful." 2) India recently launched a rocket to Mars. That's a heck of a place to put a customer service call center. 3) Note to bicycling enthusiasts who go dangerously speeding by me as I'm walking: When you yell "on your left" as you go by, it only lets me know which arm to "clothesline" you with.  4) A dog teaches a boy fidelity, perseverance and to turn around three times before lying down.  5) There is a mile long line of cars stopped ahead, but go ahead and honk at the guy in front of you. It might help.....and that's five !

The AREA 51 Retirement Home Bar And Grill: At the shopping mall the other day, an old man watched a teenager sitting next to him. The teenager had spiked hair in all different colors: green, red, orange, and blue. The old man kept staring at him. The teenager would look and find the old man staring every time.

When the teenager had enough, he sarcastically asked, "What's the matter old man, never done anything wild in your life? The old man did not bat an eye and responded, "Yep, I got drunk one night and had sex with a peacock. I was just wondering if you were my son."

Two factory workers were talking and the man said, "I know how to get some time off from work." His female friend asked, "How do you think you will do that?" He proceeded to show her. He climbed up into the rafters and hung upside down.

The boss walked in, saw the worker hanging from the ceiling, and asked him what on earth he was doing? The guy said, "I'm a light bulb" The boss told him, "I think you need some time off."

So, the man jumped down and walked out of the factory. The second worker began walking out too. The boss asked her where did she think she was going? She replied, "Home. I can't work in the dark."

The Hits Just Keep On Coming: Grandpa and Little Johnny are sitting on a bench in the park. Johnny asked, "Grandpa are you going to take that new Viagra?" Grandpa looks at him and says, "No Johnny, I will not."

Little Johnny asks,"But Grandpa, why?" asks little Johnny. Grandpa replies, "Because there is no sense in putting lead in your pencil if you have no one to write to."

A Sunday School teacher of preschoolers was concerned that his students might be a little confused about Jesus Christ because of the Christmas season emphasis on His birth. He wanted to make sure they understood that the birth of Jesus occurred a long time ago, that He grew up, etc.

So he asked his class, "Where is Jesus today?" Steven raised his hand and said, "He's in heaven." Mary was called on and answered, "He's in my heart." Little Johnny, waving his hand furiously, blurted out, "I know! I know! He's in our bathroom!"

The whole class got very quiet, looked at the teacher, and waited for a response. The teacher was completely at a loss for a few very long seconds. He finally gathered his wits and asked Little Johnny how he knew this.

Little Johnny said, "Well, every morning, my father gets up, bangs on the bathroom door, and yells 'Jesus Christ, are you still in there?'!"

That's it for today, my little aardvarks. Remember, the best revenge when someone pisses you off in the grocery store is to get in front of them in the checkout line and pay for a single tomato with a personal check. I'm heading over to AREA51 f9r happy hour.

I like the bear story, will he run for president? Just curious.
That 'On your left' thing. Sherry and I were riding on the nice bike trail in Apopka.
Sherry heard something like 'left', so she moved left. OUCH... wreck bad words, something about deaf old people etc. We learned about the 'On your Left, crap!'
Enjoyed the read as always. BTW Grandpa is rite, about the lead....
