This N That

I must still have it. For a short while there, I was genuinely concerned, I thought perhaps that with the onset of age, I had perhaps lost it. But it is still there; today I got visible undeniable proof. I am over at this new store and each time I walk by a frozen food section, the lights inside the case come on!

Now talk about your “animal magnetism” I still have it.

A new supermarket just opened here in Town. It has an automatic water mister to keep the produce fresh. Just before it goes on, you hear the sound of distant thunder and the smell of fresh rain. When you pass the milk cases, you hear cows mooing and you experience the scent of fresh mown hay.

In the meat department there is the aroma of charcoal grilled steaks with onions. When you approach the egg case, you hear hens cluck and cackle, and the air is filled with the pleasing aroma of bacon and eggs frying. The bread department features the tantalizing smell of fresh baked bread & cookies.

I don't think I want to buy toilet paper there however.

Man, I really like that Carrie Underwood, “I Don’t Even Know His Name” that gives me a rush! Crank it up! Yes, I will unashamedly admit that I am a “Twanger” here in the Heart-Land, isn’t everybody?

Not to be upstaged by California, Washington State recently implemented nearly 300 new laws this year, they take effect I suppose on July one.  300 laws in one year, this is kind of incredible isn’t it. They include new rights for registered domestic partners. It won’t be long before it will lead to full recognition of same-sex unions. One of the changes allows domestic partners the right to refuse to testify against each other in court.

Unbelievable. I guess the most logical approach to this would be to allow them to marry. It is like the Bible says, “Go forth, be fruitful and multiply.” They can be fruitful all they want, but they sure are not going to multiply. Legalize it everywhere; they will be gone in one generation, two at the most.

A New Jersey Senate budget committee holds a hearing on a proposed amendment to the state constitution to require public approval for state borrowing.  Get this. They are currently in the hole, for a cool $32 billion dollars. If we ran our checkbooks the way we run government, we would all be in Chapter Thirteen.

One more and I am outta here. Name two federal projects that were done on time, and came in under budget. Give up?

The Golden Gate Bridge and Hoover Dam.

Lewes, Delaware, said that road crews were today putting the final touches on the $9.7 million Del. I expansion project. Line painting, paving on side roads and depositing of sod were expected to be wrapping up by Friday. That will end nearly TWO YEARS of traffic delays and lane closings.

Man, that sounds like Oklahoma to me.

State hired this guy to paint white lines on all the highways.First day he went out, he painted something like five miles of white line.Second day, he only painted three, and then on the third day, a mile and one-half and that was it.

So the boss looks at the guy and says, “I don’t get it.The first day you do five, then three, and now just a mile and one-half, what gives?”

The Okie looks at him and says, “Geeze boss, I am getting farther and farther from that bucket of paint every day.”
