Judging by the forecast, looks like Saturday’s the day when pool season ends. It’s gotten hot today – 96 – and will be again tomorrow, so this afternoon’s dip in a 76-degree pool wasn’t so bad, but there’s no question the days are, as that old song goes, dwindling down to a precious few. With that in mind…

This sounds like a pretty cool idea to me. But then again, I’m all for Intenet shopping. Last year we did all our Christmas shopping over the Internet, and we’ll do the same thing this year. We already buy a lot of stuff over the Internet anyways – rabbit hay, Dunkin’ Donuts coffee, Kraft Spaghetti Dinner, Hawaiian vanilla, Tracey’s skin care products. Anything to do with books or music. My guess is it’s only going to trend more in that direction.

1000 recordings to hear before the day you die. (Hat tip: Instapundit) An interesting list to be sure, but the fact that ABBA, Anita Baker, and Madonna are on it already tells me whoever compiled this cockamamie list is full of what makes the grass grow.

Just wondering: am I the only one who sees a connection between the decline of the stock market and Barack Obama’s (seeming) rise in the polls. Let me ask you this: if you were an investor, which Presidential candidate would you think has more of your interests at heart?

…Oh, turns out I’m not the only one

So this is what it’s come down to:

Me: You getting the flu shot our office is offering this year?

Office co-worker: No. Are you?

Me: No way, I’ll be damned if I’ll allow the government to put their mind-altering drugs in me. It’s all a damned conspiracy.

Office co-worker: You’re absolutely right. I was thinking the same thing.

I know I speak for a lot of conservatives when I say Sarah Palin oughta be the one at the top of the ticket, not John McCain. But I guess as far as conventional wisdom goes, that means I’d be voting for someone with little Washington experience. As opposed to someone, like, say….. Barack Obama? Riiiiight.

…But then again, what do I know? I’ve never served on a board with anyone affiliated with a terrorist group that set off bombs at the U.S. Capitol and the Pentagon – among other places – and still feels no remorse for it.

As much as I’d love to see a World Series between the Red Sox and Dodgers, I’m rooting for the Phillies in the NLCS.

My first attempt at a recipe from Chef John Folse’s Encyclopedia of Cajun & Creole Cuisine – a red roumelade sauce – came out fantastic.

Speaking of good recipes, if you want a pasta dish that makes you feel like you’re dining in Boston’s North End, try this. It’s a hit in The Great White Shank’s kitchen.

For all those who were begging – begging – Congress to pass that Wall Street bail-out bill last week – how’s that workin’ out for ya? I said it then and I’ll say it again: anyone who trusts anything that comes out of the Bush administration ought to get their head examined. He and his economic advisors have been making it up as they go along. Of course, no one in Washington has a clue what to do, either, and that includes both The Messiah and McCain.

One of these days there’s gonna be SERIOUS pushback against those in Congress who pressured the U.S. banking system to give mortgages to people you yourself wouldn’t even lend $50 to, and when that happens (before the election or not) not even the liberal suck-ups at the AP, New York Times, L.A. Times, Washington Post, CNN, and the major networks are gonna be able to make excuses. Mark my words, people will be going to jail for this when it all comes down. And it will.

  1. A list of 1000 recordings to hear before you die is pretty much useless, don’t you think? Between old vinyl records and CDs, I probably have nearly 1000 and I couldn’t recommend more than half of them … and I paid money for them.
