Ice Cap Musings …


Woke up this morning with some mind-numbing concerns, I will share them with you.

  1. Found myself conflicted on doing a search on Goggle news on Tom Cruise or Bill Crosby.  Coz is a hot-button topic right now, Cruise not so much.  What can I say …. slow week. 
  2. Decided to NOT find out anything on the mess in Ferguson, Mo.  It did occur to me that they can now officially change their lic. tags.  They currently read, “Missouri The Show Me State.”  They could delete “state” an add “Hands” to that and be all kinds of PC.
  3. Why is it that I desperately miss Jay Leno and not Barbara Walters?
  4. My thought processes seem to  be derailed.  Last week for instance, on Wednesday, I stopped telling people “to have a nice day” as I was fairly sure I might kill someone by Saturday.  Kind of stumbled thru the week, like a beat-up smartphone with a missing ap and a half-drained battery. 
  5. And finally …. If this were a Home Invasion … Would you rather take a bullet straight to the head, or five rounds in the chest?  (Just accept it … Sometimes the choices life gives you are hard to swallow)

This new cartoon feature about Penguins by Disney cracks me up, all these birds falling from the sky at a a highly-accelerated-rate of speed and the one bird screaming …. “WE’RE ALL GONNA DIE!” … I just find that incredibly funny. 

But then again I am a pretty sick puppy, we all know that.

Dead Penguins – Did you ever wonder why there are no dead penguins on the ice in Antarctica.  Where do they go? 

It is a known fact that the penguin is a very ritualistic bird which lives an extremely ordered and complex life. The penguin is very committed to its family and will mate for life, as well as maintain a form of compassionate contact with its offspring throughout its life. 

If a penguin is found dead on the ice surface, other members of the family and social circle have been known to dig holes in the ice, using their vestigial wings and beaks, until the hole is deep enough for the dead bird to be rolled into, and buried.

The male penguins then gather in a circle around the fresh grave and sing:

“Freeze a jolly good fellow.”

“Freeze a jolly good fellow.” 

Then, they kick him in the ice hole.

You really didn’t believe that I knew anything about penguins, did you?

    I wondered why you had Tux, the Linux “mascot”, posted, now I understand. Tux rocks!


  2. Hey thanks, if I can get a groan, that is fine with me. No joke. While we are here, I inadvertently erased one of your comments the other day, please except my deepest heart-felt apology, I was tying to wrap my head around this new editor thing.



  3. On item #2 Don, over the past two weeks I’ve sent out an email to my addressees regarding the mess in the “Show Me State”. Had to ask, just like the Trayvon Martin case in Florida, WHERE oh WHERE are Al Sharpton, Jesse Jackson, and Eric Holder? What with their racist ideas and doings going into these communities and stirring up the @*&%$ and then bugging out of town never to be seen again? What’s up with that?
