Just heard on the news that there were enough apples picked in Washington State this year that if you strung them out, one right next to the other, they would circle the globe 12 times!

And what is the deal with cracker packages that are hard to get open? Sheesh. I had to get out a knife to crack open a pack of Saltines this evening to go with my beef soup. Seriously, what do other people do? I am 6'4" tall and 250 pounds and I had to use a knife to open the damn thing.

Work is good, but damn busy and there isn't enough time to take care of everyday chores. Something has to change soon and I may have some news on that within the next day or so.

I mentioned the gas manufacturing dog food that Sage is on now - man that was baaaaad - anyhow, the gas emissions have ceased and now she is just full of beans (regular energy beans, not gas-making beans) and we spend the evenings chasing each other around. It is almost too much fun. I wish there was a way to express in words how happy she makes me.

Ok, I need to close this down and shuffle off to bed. Take care and more soon.

Up early today and heading off to a gun show with the bro and a couple of friends in a few hours!

Tons, and I mean TONS of great stuff out on the internet regarding the election. Found this one on the Europeans view of America and the election via Jeff at Alphecca by Mark Steyn and I am still chuckling at the two opening paragraphs:

"The big question after Tuesday was: will it just be more of the same in George W Bush's second term, or will there be a change of tone? And apparently it's the latter. The great European thinkers have decided that instead of doing another four years of lame Bush-is-a-moron cracks they're going to do four years of lame Americans-are-morons cracks. Inaugurating the new second-term outreach was Brian Reade in the Daily Mirror, who attributed the President's victory to: "The self-righteous, gun-totin', military-lovin', sister-marryin', abortion-hatin', gay-loathin', foreigner-despisin', non-passport-ownin' rednecks, who believe God gave America the biggest dick in the world so it could urinate on the rest of us and make their land 'free and strong'."

Well, that's certainly why I supported Bush, but I'm not sure it entirely accounts for the other 59,459,765. Forty five per cent of Hispanics voted for the President, as did 25 per cent of Jews, and 23 per cent of gays. And this coalition of common-or-garden rednecks, Hispanic rednecks, sinister Zionist rednecks, and lesbian rednecks who enjoy hitting on their gay-loathin' sisters expanded its share of the vote across the entire country - not just in the Bush states but in the Kerry states, too."

Heh. Good stuff.

On a side note - I changed Sage's dog food and it was a very bad idea. Apparently, this dog food gives her the most horrendous case of gas I have ever experienced. It was so bad last night that it actually woke me up and I had to open the bedroom window at 3 AM. Phew.
