My kind of humor...

Apparently, another one that I'm the only one who finds funny :
Inspector Jacques Clouseau : "Does your dog bite ?"
Dog Walker : "No"
Clouseau reaches down to pet dog, dog bites him, "I thought you said your dog does not bite ?"
Dog Walker : "That is not my dog."

When will then be now?

Maybe you were sleepwalking when you were dreaming about taking a nap and ended up at the store before you got there ?

"What the hell am I lookin' at ? "
"When does this happen in the movie?"
"Now. You're looking at now sir, everything that happens now is happening now. "
"What happened to then? "
"We passed it. "
"When? "
"Just now. We're at now-now. "
"Go back to then."
"Now. "
"Now? "
"Now! "
"I can't."
"Why? "
"We missed it."
"When? "
"Just now. "
"When will then be now?"

I don't want to go (expletive) play for the Yankees

Papelbon denies report of potential depature to New York 
"I don't want to go (expletive) play for the Yankees," he said. "I've been on a team for the past five years that's been in first place more than any other (expletive) team otherwise. Why would I want to leave?"

Cash For Clunkers : Explained

Wondering about the Cash For Clunkers Program ? It all makes sense now :
From Big Hollywood :
You can trade in a car getting 18 miles per gallon or less for a car getting at least 22 mpg. But the voucher would grow to $4,500 if the new car’s mileage is 10 mpg higher. Now, if you own an old SUV, you could receive a $3500 voucher, if your new wheels ... Read more...

Things I look forward to :
  • My flight is at 5:50 AM 
  • We arrive at 7:30, then load-in
  • The temp in Atlanta will be 97
  • I will have 16 wireless microphones to deal with : next door to CNN. Interference much ?
and I just realized that the Sox will be playing the Braves - in Boston....

Atlanta bound

We will be in Atlanta tomorrow where the temp will be 97 degrees. Yeehah ! The last time I was in Atlanta for a show, I was in a little cafe and I asked for iced coffee, and they looked at me like I was from Mars. As if they had never heard of such a thing. 

Me: "It's kind of like iced tea - but it's iced coffee !!"  Then, I said, "Could you please, just pour some coffee into a glass of ice? "

Waitress: "But then all the ice is gonna' melt.."
Me : "I'll just have to take that chance.."

Maybe, by now they have discovered Iced Coffee...

reluctance to take Congress at its word on savings

Democrats’ $1-Trillion Health Care Plan to Cost 23 Million Americans Their Private Insurance, CBO Says
Best line :
"Dodd then complained that the CBO does not take Democrats’ plans for future cost savings into account when it calculates the cost of the bill, saying that the non-partisan office’s reluctance to take Congress at its word on savings assumptions skewed the final analysis."

Yamaha PM5D Card Reader and Bubble Wrap

Do not. I repeat, DO NOT, ever let someone insert a mangled card reader into the PM5D...
You will have bent pins...
Irate road managers...
Overworked service staff, with no time to fix it...
Other techs wondering why you let them put it in, in the first place....
And the number one reason why you DO NOT ever let someone insert a mangled card reader into the PM5D...
It f%!*$#% breaks It !!!!!!
Luckily, you can transfer files from the card, to a laptop, to the console.... just don't hit your head on the scaffolding !

Pestilence, PETA, and the President

  • PETA is finally going after President Barack Obama for delivering capital punishment to a housefly on the White House grounds yesterday -- a death that was caught on tape. When asked for comment, here's the statement PETA released: "He isn't the Buddha, he's a human being and human beings have a long way to go before they think before they act."
"That's a total lie," Walpin said of the latter charge. And he said the accusation that he was dazed and confused at one meeting out of many was not only false, but poor rationale for his ouster."It appears to suggest that I was removed because I was disabled -- based on one occasion out of hundreds," he said, adding that the administration is grasping at "non-existent straws" to explain its actions."I would never say President Obama doesn't have the capacity to continue to serve because of his (statement) that there are 56 states," Walpin said, adding that the same holds for Vice President Biden and his "many express confusions that have been highlighted by the media."

Joe Biden Quotes

"Hillary Clinton is as qualified or more qualified than I am 
to be vice president of the United States of America. 
Quite frankly, it might have been a better pick than me." 

Octopus and squid can hear.

From BBC Earth News : The Cephalopods Can Hear You 
"The discovery resolves a century-long debate over whether cephalopods, the group of sea creatures that includes octopus, squid, cuttlefish and nautiluses, can hear sounds underwater.
They discovered that the octopus can hear sounds between 400Hz and 1000Hz. The squid can hear an wider range of sound from 400Hz to 1500Hz, they report in Comparative Biochemistry and Physiology, Part A.
"That indicates that squid have a better hearing capability than the octopus," says Yan. "Interestingly though, both species hear best at a frequency of 600Hz."

One of the highlights from the Columbus Arts Festival was the band Lone Raven
There was truly magic in the air

and the city lit up... 
and the moon was rising....

Lesson learned : lobster is expensive in Alabama

Update to a previous post : I recently was informed that my fantastic lobster dinner cost $101.00. 
That is ; one hundred, and one dollars
Seriously ?! $101? 
At previously mentioned Weilands the price for a 1 pound lobster is $7.99. 
And I was told, "get what ever you want". 
Just sayin'....
