Weird Ramblings from a Warped Mind

I Agree With Mr. White

I appreciate good humor… both the ice cream and things that make me laugh. And Ron White of the “Blue Collar Comedy Tour” fame summed up my thoughts exactly a while back. I agree that you can’t fix stupid. Stupid is normally ingrained in a person. Folks are just born stupid. And like he said, […]

Chores

I have chores. Normally something every day. It builds character. Or so I’m told. And I guess that is true since I am frequently told what a character I am. My chores usually aren’t too hard. I know that surprises you. I don’t break down the car engine and rebuild it. That’s outside of my […]

What Would Warrant a Cancellation??

Let’s say I have a tendency to be a News Junkie. I start each morning with coffee and various online news outlets. I start with local stuff and progress onward to each of the major news networks. And I love when it’s been a slow day and stuff that, otherwise might not be so easily […]

Mr. Barnum was Right

I get mad at myself sometimes. Well… actually… a lot. I can’t believe that I can continually come up with stuff to write about, but miss the BIG picture. Other people are out there stealing ideas I haven’t thought of. Yet. If they would just wait and give me time, I would come up with […]

It Ain’t Gonna Happen

If you are one of the masses that read the ramblings of my warped mind on any type of a regular basis, you might be aware that I read the news a good bit. I check all the major network websites throughout the day, plus some online newspapers for areas we have lived in the […]

Escalation

Many things start out very simple and end up blown COMPLETELY out of proportion. Escalation gets many of us into trouble. And not just us… countries escalate minor things into full blown contingencies. Case in point: In March 1963, just three months into office, John F. Kennedy became incensed when the White House kitchen ran […]

Why Diet?

I encountered a problem recently. And it’s been a tad bit embarrassing. NO… it’s not an itch. My clothes have been shrinking. Many are too small. I mentioned it on FaceBook recently and got a HUGE outpouring of sympathy from my “friends.” NOT!! It started out in my drawers. Not THOSE drawers… they have an […]

Are You Kidding Me??

It doesn’t take much to get me going. Especially if the subject is the Rebumlicans or the Demicants. Like yesterday when the Head Honcho and Deputy Dawg talked about how the “stimulus package” had created 2,000,000 jobs. Oh yeah… they left out the part about each of those jobs costing $393,500.00. ARE YOU KIDDING ME?? […]

I’ve Been Missing Out

I wonder how long THIS has been going on? I could have been SO much more comfortable. Had I only known. I guess I need to pay closer attention. And I will in the future. Times are tuff. But I’m sure I’m not telling you anything you don’t already know. Record unemployment. Foreclosures. Homeless folks. […]

Bunny Ranchin’

WOW!! I was surprised to learn I am a farmer. I have to do a little research to see if there are some type of tax advantages available to me now. And it’s funny… because I found out completely by accident. I’m kind of worried at the moment. I have to learn what kind of […]
