Mother Nature abhors vacuuming

Thanks to Agent Mulder for finding this,
quite possibly the best website ever!

Here are some examples.

As long as there are Mullets, there will be Wal-Mart:

"The Ford Punisher", really? How is this POS going to punish anything except its driver.

We left a marker to find our way back to our beautiful mountain spot.
Then it was time to go home.
It was a long journey. We saw lots of stuff on the way.
Giant strawberries, spaceships, Ninjas.

Berry Go Round


The Spaceship ROCKWOOD

Fishing Day.
Sought the fish of the mountians with limited success.
But most of the fun is trying.

My lonley motionless bobber. It needed a fish to make it feel more social.

My Weapon of Choice

After a day of fishing in the Rocky Mountains, I kind of went a little crazy.

Long day.
Morning started with discovering new muscles
and learning how weak my olds one are.
After all day Physical Terrorism, we hit the road.
Next stop, Estes Park.

This place shines.

Estes Park, where you don't need a lawn mower because Elk take care of your grass for you.

Nobody in Estes Park eats crow because the crows are too big. Just ask that 16 inch trout they're eating.

Hold your breath, count to 10, fall apart then start again.

I searched "The Cure Live in Toronto 2004" and found this image.
Don't know what it has to do with The Cure, but it's a great picture.

R.I.P. Teddy.
You weren't perfect, but you weren't half bad either.

August 24, 2009

This day started out well but took a turn for the worse early on.
Then to add salt to the wound, the Slipknot concert I was planning on going to got cancelled.
And to top it off, Camel Spiders/Wind Scorpions are on the rise in Colorado.
Now I have to speed up my plans for the Hovercraft and Pulse Rifle Spider Extermination kit.

August 23, 2009

Another Lazy Sunday, cupcakes and all.
No plans. Just cooking, relaxing and watching the tube.
Rewatching all of Battlestar Galactica from the begininng.
Then for late night, a little new True Blood.

August 22, 2009

We did the Buddy Walk for Down Syndrome today.
We had a good time, and it 's a great cause.
But while walking, I realized that I am jealous of Great Britain and Seattle.
They get nice cloudy, rainy days roughly 270 days a year or something like that.
I am now thinking of re-locating.

Time to get political.

Bill Maher is awesome sometimes.

Tom Ridge, remember him, is saying that Bush told him to raise the "Threat Level"
to help win elections for the Republicans.
Well, everyone knows this.
But it's about time someone came out and actually confirmed it.

My letter to President Obama.

This Health Care "debate" needs to end, now.
The Fundamentalist Fringe is too quickly being perceived as "The majority".
Their tactics are ridiculous.
"Obama is the new Hitler"?!? "Death panels"?!? "The Birthers"?!? 
And now they're showing up outside Presidential Appearances with automatic weapons.
These shenanigans are getting more attention than the Health Care issue itself.
But the old saying holds true, tell a lie long enough and people will start to believe it.

Obama, the Democrats are in charge and you are their leader.
Use that power. Do not try to appease the Republicans.
Get your heads in the game, quit arguing amongst yourselves and do what you promised you would do.
The Republican Party has finally transformed into the cliché stereotype they have always been accused of:
"Uneducated, Gun Totting, Right Wing, Bible Thumping, Racist Nut Jobs"
I hope you don't actually think there is anything you can do to make them happy, because there is not.
If you cured cancer, they'd say "cancer didn't need a cure because it helped keep the population down."
Forget them and push on.

Mr. Obama, if you don't make something happen soon,
the Democrats will lose the mid-term elections in 2010. If that happens, you won’t be able to change anything from there on out.
And then you can kiss your new house goodbye in January of 2013.
You'll be turning it over to some "Nut Job" who thinks you're Hitler reborn and that your birth took place in some foreign land.

Mr. Obama, it’s time to Nike up and Just Do it!
If you need any advice, fresh perspective or just want to talk to someone outside Washington, give me a ring.
I'll be around. 


I hope he reads it.

Pornvest, Porkfat, Jesus Christ Night Life,
Elvis, Freshmeat and a little whip cream.

Saw an epsiode of "Gundam 00" last night.
Good stuff.
It has put me in a Gundam mood.

My all time favorite Gundam Series:
Gundam Wing/Gundam Wing Endless Waltz
Mobile Suit Gundam: 0083 Stardust Memories
Mobile Suit Gundam: The 08th MS Team

Last day of Summer, at least for me and the kiddos.
Enjoying every minute of it.
Listening to the spoken word poetry of MTBC.

Imagine what it would be like
to have a twin sister who is 13 years older than you, 
who used to live in China and work in Africa but has now moved to Australia,
who loves to stretch and roller skate,
and lives in your shadow literally, because your shadow is your twin sister.


Forever will I be missing Mr. Lucky's Red Velvet Cake

Here is my Anti-Graffiti covering up some poorly done phallic graffiti at our park..
I was going to do much more, but 4 passerby folks called the police on me.
Then a mom and her 3 kids came up and she was angry thinking I had done the original.
When I explained what I was doing, she said "Oh, well Thank You then!"
I'm sure you can figure out what it looked like.

Watching a lot on the Health Care Bill debate.
I think there is one thing that is not being said.
David Bowie summed it up best.
"I'm affraid of Americans."
Here's a great example.

A woman in Paris, Texas.

And here's a woman in Paris, France.

You get the point.

Exactly 6 years ago today, my life changed forever.
And I have loved every minute of it since.

Happy B-Day to my little rock star!

A Rock Legend and Icon has pased away today.
Rest in Peace Les Paul.

I am really good at being Mister Mom.
If I was rich, that's what I would do for a living.

Updating my iPod tonight.
Downloaded some new tunes from Marshall Watson.
Good Stuff.
There is a ton of great stuff for free on his website.
But the man needs to make a living so ... go download some stuff from by clicking the pic.

Still going thru Vegas Pictures.
Here are some choice pics of Agent X in Caesar's Palace.

August 10, 2009

Special Day, celebrating 16 years together today by taking it easy.
Summer is almost over.
Rest and Relaxation is the top priority.

August 9, 2009

Family Day.
And for late night, True Blood.
Quite the cliffhanger. The episode name says it all:

August 8, 2009

Home again, home again.
Helped Dad with Garage Sale.
Then went home and slept.
So tired and sore.
Too tired to post anything cool.

Lager, Lager, Lager, shouting

Finally figured out all of the free shuttles.
We did the south strip, saw the sites.
Then got sick of Vegas.
Plus my back & leg were killing me, big time.
I'm far from prude, but everything there is so sleazy.
And everything is really, really expensive.
The days of Sinatra's Classy Vegas died with him.
There is no 'Class' left in Vegas.
[Mr. Lucky's 24/7 cafe in the Hard Rock Hotel was awesome. We ate there 5 times.
Not cheap but not expensive and you get your money's worth.
All the food is super tasty and
their Red Velvet Cake is the best in Vegas!]
We called it quits and went to the airport early.
Then finally headed home.

August 6, 2009


The day of the Underworld concert at 'The Joint',
which was in our hotel. The Hard Rock Hotel & Casino.
A highly over-rated hotel. I didn't like it because their high roller room is called
The Peacock Lounge.
Good day. We bumped into the band at the Hotel and at the Mall.
Did some more sites and hung out in the pool.
Then it was concert time.
The Concert was amazing. Meeting other dirties was awesome.
Good Times all around.

So much to see and do

[To be filled in later with something cool sounding]

Just found out that there is a new Fear Factory project in the works.
But it's a new Fear Factory, sort of.
There has been a Division. And there is lots of drama around it.
But it's still Fear Factory with Burton on vocals, so I'm all for it.
Here is a picture of the New Fear Factory 3.0
