Not surprised, the devil known as Newdow has popped up once again to challenge our freedoms and our national superiority, and he has suckered a New Hampshire couple into joining his idiotic cause. WorldNetDaily is today reporting that a new case has been filed and the threat to our liberty is not over. We must stand up and defend our Pledge of Allegiance and our National Motto from evil idiots such as a Newdow and his ilk. I may be an agnostic, but I certainly don't support the forced removal of God from our public schools. The Pledge is a time-honored and sacred duty of every student and should continue. That is all.

It is the morning of the memorial service for my Cousin Super Dave and I am in the room typing out this entry for my blog. I will be heading down to the pool shortly to see what it looks like and just to wander about this place. The Mont Bleu Resort is a nice place, great for couples, and the staff is friendly and courteous. This is where Super Dave worked after all.
I will be going about setting up the cameras around 2PM for the 4PM service, presentation, whatever its called. I don't think anyone's come together on what the proper title of it is as yet.
The theatre that we will be using is quite large and has this large drop-down screen that the slideshow will be played out on. Should be fun but also a real tear-jerker as we all know why we are gathered here at this time. We all miss him so much and this is especially difficult on his parents and sister.
I will be signing off now, maid just came by and the room does need its daily cleaning. More later.

Manatee Status="In wow mode"
This story just keeps changing and only gets better with each change. Kelsey did the right thing, and she should be applauded. Getting an illegal out of this country, right on! Now, I do consider her a bit weird for being in love with a creepy Mexican-born student, but maybe she was faking and was really intending to help America by removing an illegal student. I would like to get to know Kelsey and ask her just that.
Am sure this isn't the last we will hear of this international incident and can't wait for the next update.

Manatee Status="Thoughts of love"
Yet another student-teacher love spasm is being reported today, with a 13-year-old male student and his 25-year-old female teacher running off together to who-knows-where. All I have to say is I hope they stay hidden and evade the authorities for as long as possible. If they truelly want to be together, than so be it, I have no problem with it, kids grow up fast in this modern world and we should accept the monstrosity that we have created. I am in no way saying that Kelsey is a monster, quite the contrary in fact, but rather the modern world where feelings are all-important and self-esteem is king. This world dictates that we allow for students and teachers to get together, to be together, and to love one another as two people should do and feel good about it. So, let them be. I know that as a young student, I had a major crush on one or more of my female teachers, and if one of them had initiated a relationship with me, I would have willingly joined her. I would not have been harmed by the relationship, as some psychos would claim, but rather I would have enjoyed the companionship and maybe would be in a better place today. Who knows? Let students be students and if that involves some romps in the hay with a particular teacher, let it happen, it is educational. That is all.

I want to wish one and all a beautiful and very happy Halloween 2007! Woohahahahaha! Now, as for why I write tonight, just two days ago I told y'all 'bout John C. Dvorak's site and now they have a story posted that you just got to see. Love the picture! So cute! Check it out and see for yourself.

If you don't yet know about this great blog, than I am telling you about it now. If you already knew about it, than ignore this post and move on to the next. I mention it just because I have nothin' else to talk about right now and I like the site, so enjoy.

Mr. Byrnes's comments are spot on and I hope he does not back down. No apology is needed as he is so saying the right thing. Minorities are worthless and, if they don't prepare for the future, than they are indeed throwing their lives away. Education is important and if the NAA(L)CP believes it is than they should show it by supporting vouchers as a way of getting students to learn more than they are now. This is a story only because a white guy has an honest opinion and the blacks have control of the media. That is not a racist statement, but rather a factual one. Just do your own research and refute me, if I am wrong. I know I am not, so there!
Manatee Status="In mourning"
My Cousin Dave, whom we always called Super Dave, is gone and his organs will be donated per his wishes. That was the kind of person that he was, always kind, friendly to all, funny, brought a smile to everyone, just can't believe that he is actually gone. He will be missed. The memories I have are of the Thanksgivings that the family spent together in Nevada City, especially the one of some ten years plus ago when my brother, myself, and my cousins Dave and Brian were playing Tecmo Bowl on the original NES and just having a grand ol' time! Then we would go outside and play touch football and have even more fun. Oh, the smiles, the laughter, the family time that we spent together.

Today, I am writing about something personal, about my cousin, 'cause I think that you all should know what I know.
Earlier today, my mom called, as she does on many mornings, to see how I am doing and what is on my agenda for the day. So, we talked for a bit, I told her how busy I figured I would be and what-not, and the conversation flowed like normal. Then she mentioned that my Cousin Kathleen called with sad, ugly news: my Cousin Dave has suffered a massive brain aneurysm and is in the Reno hospital on a ventilator and may not survive much longer. I was blown over, as would anyone be who loses a friend and close family member.
To be honest, other members of my family were closer to him, but I do have many fond memories and I just am at a total loss to express my sadness and despair at this news. I write this post to help myself, and perhaps in doing so, help others as well. After finishing this, I am going to go to work and live my day, while continuing to think about my cousin and his family, hoping that with this huge loss will come healing and the joy that we were able to share this Earth with someone so special and warm-hearted for the time that we had. I would post a photo, but, unfortunately, I do not have one. Cousin Dave is 40, far too young to taken from us. That is all.

I found this story in the odd news section and it is truly odd. What I find odd is not that the woman can crush beer cans between her breasts or the cool ability to hang spoons, but rather this quaint quote: "It sends a clear message to all licensees in Peel that we will not tolerate this type of behavior in our licensed premises," from local police superintendent David Parkinson. He is referring to the fines that were levied upon the two ladies. And it begs the suggestion of ignoring the silly licensing laws. Men want to see topless women, women are willing to go topless, all are happy. That is just good business. Makes me wonder about the police supe's manhood. Is he or isn't he? Doesn't this just fit Australia, the land down-under?
Manatee Status="Play Ball!"
I am hereby announcing my WS2007 prediction. Just one hour before the first pitch, here is who I think will win and be champions of Major League Baseball. I know others will go into details (good example here) but I like to keep it simple. Let's see how accurate I am when all is said and done. My prediction: Red Sox 4 games to the Rockies 3. Yes, I do think this series will last all seven games. The Rockies will be victorious tonight, BoSox tomorrow, and I don't know from there, but Boston has the edge. I can just feel it. Somethin' in the air, can't explain it, just know it, that is how I see it.

I was all excited when I began reading this article, but, by the end, I was disappointed. I felt led-on to believe one thing was happening when it was really another, much less exciting thing that the story is about. Read it yourself and see if you don't agree.
At the start, the article has this line: "They plan to spend five months working in sub-zero temperatures beneath nearly 3.5km of ice at Lake Ellsworth in Antarctica." At that point, I am thinking, "wow, humans are gonna live under ice, that deep under ice? That's not likely unless they are thinking of a cave, right?" I mean, 3.5km of ice, that is very far down. Then I continue reading the piece and it is about drilling to that depth and my excitement falls with a thud, as this is something I have heard before and really, how original is that? It's been done! Our hard-working researchers living at the South Pole deserve to be recognized for their hard work and long hours and we should see them actively doing things that are interesting and thrilling! What I suggest is building a giant drill, similar to what was seen in that hum-drum movie The Core, and dig into the ice, dig deep, stream it live online and on CNN, FoxNews, MSNBC, CBS, etc. and get the world energized by what might be found. That would be worth spending billions and billions on.

Dr. Watson may have apoligised for scientific fact, but I won't! I will not back down from my earlier agreement with his very effective words. He is reported to have said in an interview just a few days ago, "all our social policies are based on the fact that their (people of Africa) intelligence is the same as ours - whereas all the testing says not really" indicating that he meant Africans are stupid. That I must agree with. The videos I have seen throughout my life regarding that part of the world shows a definite lack of intelligence. And the select few who either get out or stay and move up the slimy ladder of leadership are not necessarily smart, just willing participants in a game larger than the continent that they inhabit. Think about it, name an African with dark skin who has succeeded without unscrupulous help. I urge you to take the time to think about it, and you will be unable to think of one. I challenge you to prove me wrong, I can take it! That is my rant for now.
Dr. James Watson has made yet another statement. He is 79, co-discover of the DNA double-helix design and co-winner of the '62 Nobel Prize in Medicine, an author, lecturer, and pragmatist. He is also very controversial. I suppose that when you get to a certain stature, you have every right to be. So, his latest comments come as no surprise, really. And, scientifically speaking, I do believe he is right. I know that in daily life, he is correct. I know a few highly-intelligent dark-skinned people, but the clear majority, no matter their profession, are seriously lacking in the brain cells department. A good example is our US Congress, where the notion of intelligence is quite missing in action with members who are dark-skinned. That is all I have to say on this (for now).

Manatee Status="burning desire"
I have considered it, but this man did it. Burning the Mexican flag is an American's right and patriotic duty. David Bohmfalk had the right idea and I know that I speak for a great many people when I say, "Do it again for the Alamo!" Mexico needs to heed our warning and back off. This opens up the immigration issue, and that is one mean opinion-filled item, but it needs to be said, here and now, close and seal our southern border, secure it with a ten-thousand Americans along it with the order to shoot to kill anyone, and I do mean ANYONE, who attempts to cross without permission and especially those who are pregnant and want their little bundles of shit to be automatic American citizens. Anchor babies. That practice must end! What has happened to our wonderful land of the brave? Where are the patriots? Are we willing to battle for our freedom? The Minutemen can't do it alone, you know! Stand up for your rights and our liberty! Stand up and be counted, have no fear, do not surrender, BraveHeart!

This video, in this video, you will see the best of America and why I still love this country. Dropping a giant pumpkin onto an old bus, very cool! More than very cool, way awesome! I just can't sum up fully how it makes me feel to see an old, worn-out piece of machinery (the bus) being crushed, moderately though, by a large vegetable. That is truelly beautiful! Am I redneck enough for ya?

Sometime last week, the tail of Comet Encke was removed by a powerful blast from our ever-present neighbor, the Sun. But, in true cometary form, Encke faught back and made a graceful tail recovery and all is now well in our sector of the galaxy. See the video below:
I have uploaded a new video to YouTube: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0LY6bbUmago
Let me know what you think, give it a rating (5 stars?) and maybe even add it to your favorites list. I will upload more videos soon, as time allows.

I am 28. Two years until 30. I am old. I am young. I am whatever I want to be. Feels funny, it does.
Yesterday, I went with my mom to the NorCalRenFaire.org at Casa deFruta. My third straight year going to this fun event. Watched the full-contact jousting event, listened intently and laughed outrageously at MooNiE the Magnif'Cent's antics on stage, and browsed the shops in the marketplace. Always a great time. We even spent the additional bucks for VIP parking. That is how I spent the day before my birthday.
As for today, I will be working in the morning, doing laundry and depositing money into my account or opening a new account with a bank or credit union. Don't know yet. Wish me all the best, 'cause I need it, hehehe.

What?! Brand it?!?! WHY??!! I know this vote was rigged (I mean two of the choices were the same after all), but I just didn't realize by how much. I participated. Just goes to show that the best of ideas can be just as bad as the worst of them. Better luck next time, Ecko! Silly how he reveals the results on the Today Show, not exactly the most fitting of places, with Matt and Meredith.

When I first saw the picture on the FoxNews.com front page, I immediatly wondered "who's the guy?" Then I read the caption and saw it was Mary Winkler the husband killer and was stunned. So, this is what prison does to a woman? Turns a she into a he? Scary!
As for her girls, she should not be allowed to see them ever again, she has done enough damage as it is. The grandparents should get full custody and that should be the end of it.

This morning, I wrote a short piece regarding a story which broke overnight, the student who was tasered after asking Sen. Kerry a radical question. Now, after a full day of facts, we find out that it was a publicity stunt and this student (even though he is named in the article, I wish not to utter said name) was acting out for the cameras that were present at his request.
Sickening! That is the word that comes to mind. We were all tricked and I am disgusted by his actions. I still think the officers did not need to taser him, but his stunt is just as revolting to me.
Although his so-called friends claim that what occurred was not a stunt, after viewing the tape yet again, I believe that is was, is, and that I and many others (including Michael Savage) were taken for fools. It irks me to no end! Why? Why, in the name of heaven, must we fall prey to such maggots? Is it just human nature? Such is the mystery of life and living.
This is outrageous! This video is shocking, not just for what happens to the student, but in the lack of response of the other students. That room should have erupted into a riot against the unlawful attack on the student and those officers should have been beaten down. The tasered student did nothing wrong! It is difficult to watch this video without thinking of what a police-state we are indeed in. What ever happened to freedom of speech? It is missing in action as is courage and integrity among one's fellow students.

Just logged in after a brief hiatus from blogging and found the news item about Blogger's new fun feature, Blogger Play. It is fascinating to see what people will post, and I like being able to control the speed at which the pics fly by. You may see some pictures from me sweep on by there at some point, ya never know. So, visit the FAQ for more details, if that's what you like.

Using Time and Date.com, I have discovered that on our wedding day next year, Barbara and I will have been engaged for more than a year. Check it out here.
And writing about this wedding is cathartic, though I always imagined that it would be lethargic. LOL :-) But seriously, it is fun to plan such a big event, though ours won't be that big, really quite small, or rather medium-sized in comparison to other events. Should be fun, it will be fun, lots of dancing and cake and food. We are doing a buffet-style dinner, after all. This Monday, in fact, Barb and I will do a cake-testing of six different flavors. My, I will be so sugar-high after that. I am almost thinking that perhaps I should re-schedule the DJ whom we will interview at 3 that day. He may run out scared of us on our sugar rush. Perhaps we won't be that scary. I don't know, though time will tell. It always does. Right?

Senator Larry Craig is an idiot, no doubt, but should he resign? I think not. I say let him serve out the remainder of his current term and then replace him. What the Republicans are doing is despicable and wrong. He committed no real crime and, while not condoning his ill behavior, I really think we should all take a long, hard look at ourselves and wonder about our own maturity. So quick are we to throw overboard someone who was a quiet member that we should be throwing ourselves over the boards. Why don't we just fire the entire Senate and start from scratch? Wouldn't that be a smart solution? I think so.

Yu is a true caveman! I am happy that Yu is getting married. I would suggest that ABC look into adding Yu as a cast member of the new Caveman show, as this guy doesn't need makeup, he could be a walk-on. What do you think of Yu?
Richard Jewell is deceased. I saw the headline on the Drudge Report and was instantly in shock. Today marks the tragic end of a national hero and of a man mistreated by our government and the media. President Bush should declare today a national day of mourning to honor Mr. Jewell.
I am happy that Governor Perdue recognized him last year for his actions a decade earlier, though ultimate vindication would come with the AJC offering an apoligy and a full retraction of all stories written during those days that the FBI falsley accused him of being the prime suspect.
What angers me most is the fact that the AJC did not do their own investigation and just took what the government's G-men said at their word. When are G-men to be suspected of lying? Whenever their lips are moving. That is no joke, it's the g*^d@mm truth! Why do we so quickly accept what the media and the government tell us? Why?! Question everything! That is all!

Robert Greenwald and Senator Sanders have teamed up in this new video that attacks the Fox News Channel and the other mainstream networks for following FoxNews down the black hole of certain doom. It is very important that as many people see this video as possible to get the word out about what the future likely holds, a war with Iran and death for millions. Do not be followers, be leaders! Take up the fight and protect our nation from stupid-heads like Bush, Cheney, and the rest of this hirrible administration! We must fight back! Take up arms, this is a call to action! FIGHT! FIGHT! FIGHT! WIN! WIN! WIN!

Yesterday, on a lark, I travelled over to Santa Cruz, to visit the Boardwalk. I used a Mug Root Beer can to receive a $10 unlimited rides wristband after five and my first ride of the afternoon was Logger's Revenge, since it was in the mid-eighties, which classifies the day as hot. From there, I went over for my first turn on the Giant Dipper and then to the Hurricane. These coasters, what is it? They are fun! But, I also have the bruises to prove that I rode them, hehehe. Love the Giant Dipper! And, for the record, I set a new personal record, riding it four times in five hours. I know, some ride it 10 times in one hour, and perhaps I will do that some day, but this record is a personal best for me. My previous record was just three times in one visit.
I also rode Logger's Revenge and the Hurricane twice. The highlight of the evening for me was Double Shot, no doubt. That is as scary to ride as it looks. You want to see proof that I did it? Here it is: Double Shot image.
I left the Boardwalk at around 2230 and got lost somewhere around San Jose. With a little help from Barbara, I was able to get unlost and arrived at home about 0115 the next morning. Good trip, still tired, can't wait to go again. That is all.

Today is an important day, a sad day, a day that should be marked for all time as a somber occasion to remember a comic legend. Yes, I am referring to William Penn Adair Rogers, aka Will Rogers, that American humorist and early star of the silver screen, who died this day in 1935 on a flight with Wiley Post somewhere near Barrow, Alaska. It is a sad day indeed, as it is also the day that Napoleon Bonaparte was born. But, that is less important. That is all.

We rode BART and Muni to the zoo and afterwards visited the beach which is across the street. Weather was good and not too windy. Good times. That is all.

I have been absent from posting for a few days and that makes me sad. Sorry. But, I am now back and ready for action once again. So here goes nothing.
Tomorrow, Barbara and I will be visiting the San Francisco Zoo, the beach, and other points in the area. She is really pumped to see the polar bears; not sure why. What is it that makes the polar bears so cute to girls? Don't they know that the polar bear is not a cuddly creature? Don't girls know that they can't get close to the bears? These are the largest bears on the planet and they will attack if approached, so always be careful around them. I guess as a guy, I will never understand the draw of a bear, especially one with clear fur.
Also, on the horizon, I will be manning the KYOS board on Wednesday and Thursday morning, as I prepare for the following week when Dennis is on vacation. I know I can pull it off with a flair as easy as my smile. Should be fun. That is all.

I am not sure what to write about here, as I don't have much to talk about right now. So, this is what I will post, what I have done so far today. I rise early, around 4AM, depart for Merced by 0515, arrive at Radio Merced, and from 545AM to about 0900 work with Dennis Daily and the KYOS Morning News. After 0900 I drive around for a bit, visit Barnes & Noble, read a book, then return to Radio Merced for the weekly remotes meeting. I get my schedule for the weekend and make my way back here to home for some sleepy-time. Now, up and at them for work at the college, and then back home for a good night's rest. I will rising early again tomorrow morn for KYOS and another day. That is all.
I like Steven's question and his answer. I have often found myself pondering what a good so-called terrorist would do to provoke panic and fear in the masses. My idea consists of setting off bombs simultaneously at 10 different airports, maybe more. Just cooridinate the attacks, which in today's world, would be fairly easy to do. That is all for now.

In France, a young boy is punished for translating the latest Harry Potter novel. I don't get it, as this story does not give the juicy details, such as into what language Harry was translated into, or how the young man got his hands on a book prior to its French release date. Ok, he probably translated it into French from English, but what is the harm in that? I am quite proud of this boy and Ms. Rowling should encourage such acts, as they do benefit her and the lousy publisher in the end. This is an opportunity for good publicity, if the right people see it. That is all.

I have to much time on my hands, that I sometimes just squander it. Have you ever squandered your free time? Do you have any free time? And how does one squander time anyways? Okay, enough with the questions, now, one with the show. My link for today is for Tom Bodett, one of the many funny people who participate on a somewhat regular basis on the hit game show, "Wait, Wait, Don't Tell Me!" heard on NPR and via podcast. He has a wonderful blog (as do I, if you haven't noticed) and is always posing significant queries about satisfying topics. I suggest you go and read for yourself what I refer to. Now, off with your head! LOL, just kidding. Just your fingers, next week your head. I jest. Just in that giddy mood, I guess. So, as for what else that is on my mind, yesterday, or rather, last night, my fiance and I saw The Bourne Ultimatum starring Matt Damon. Good movie, lots of action, plotline made sense, just wish the cameras didn't move so much. Made the picture very difficult to impossible to follow along. The action shots would have been better if the camera operators would have held still. Less camera movements equals more action and better story, in my book. But, that is just one man's opinion, ignore at your peril. That is all.

A submarine is discovered in NYC waters and the first thought on most people's minds is terrorism. Why? Because it's New York City? These submariners have not broken any laws, at least not ones that are public knowledge, and should be released and allowed to do their thing. They are harming no one and are NOT terrorists! I can say that with certainty based on the reporting and the images included with the news story. We in America, especially those in New York, are overly paranoid that everyone and everything is dangerous and out to destroy us. What happened to trust but verify? Did that go the way of common sense? I just don't get it. Sadly, we are a nation of rejects and idiots, and I say this lightly with humor, our President should be held accountable in a violent way. Secret Service, come take me away for NOT threatening GWB. That is all.

Good joke: Weddings You Wish You Could Go To - by the third one, I was cracked up with tears, so funny! So sad that I was not blessed with a crummy name like these blokes. Hardy-Har! That is all.
This is a new month. Indeed. A good month and lots happening, starting with today. At the StanCoFair in Turlock, Blake Shelton, the well-known country music superstar is performing and Barbara, her brother, Patrick, and I will be in attendance, courtesy of my friends at Radio Merced. Thank you, Damien! Should be a good show and I will be sure to get some jerky, if its available.
Later on in the month, on the 11th, Barbara and I will be attending my first Oakland Raiders football game. It is the pre-season opener, sure, but it is still a game! I am excited! Afterall, it's at the McAfee Stadium, which I have already been to twice for Oakland A's games. So, I know the way to San Jose. LOL ;-)
Two days later, the 13th, Barb and I will be attending a vacation presentation at the Wharf in San Francisco, for a trip to somewhere that we can use for our honeymoon. Could be a trap, sounds like a timeshare thingy, we will be careful though.
Near the end of the month, we have two events happening, a concert with Reba McEntire and a concert with Toby Keith. Loud and outrageous, they should be. Am excited as can be.
That is our month, hope I survive it. That is all.

I have changed the template and moved a few things on the sidebar around, increased the info in the blog description above and added the line at the start of each post about the manatee status. So, all-in-all, a nice new look to a not-so-old blog. But, in the blogosphere, where every week is a new year, my blog was already nearing middle age. It needed the makeover, wouldn't you say?
About that manatee status above, I have made the creature my unofficial mascot. Every blog needs a mascot and I chose the manatee for unknown reasons, probably mostly for the name, I think. It just rolls off the tongue nicely. Also, the origin of the name manatee, look it up. You might also agree that the name is cool. I will probably write something about the manatee in the future, if I get the urge to do the research, but for now, just read the Wikipedia article and be happy. That is all for now.
A full moon and the prairie, what could be more calming. This image taken by Lyndon Anderson and posted on SpaceWeather.com brings to mind the warm Summer days that are here now and will be gone all too soon. Enjoy while it lasts. That is all.

As for airport insecurity, let it be. I enjoyed flying pre-9/11, now, the fun has been removed and the fear of every little word and action is real. Don't make a joke about a bomb or a biological agent, or you may be hauled off to Gitmo or worse. That is all.

Buzz and a seismograph
On an aside, you probably have guessed how I feel about Harry Potter and this mania surrounding the books. DON'T WASTE YOUR TIME! Harry is fiction, I know that you know that and just get real! Ignore the Potter craze! Ignore it! It is the ruin of America. Rowling is an evil-hearted woman and her billions she did not earn honorably. That is all.

I don't buy into the whole global warming thing, regardless of rather it is man-made or normal, I just don't see how we as humans can truelly accurately state that the Earth has risen in temperature one decade over another. Sure, we have stats, but only for the last, what, 150 to 200 years. The most accurate stats are only for the last 20 to 30 years. And we are told that Earth is either 6,000 years (the Bible) or billions of years (evolution) old. So, what was the climate like 1,000 years ago? Look at tree rings, they can tell us. NO, they can't. We are assuming that we understand what we are looking at. How about carbon dating? No good, another assumption based on human egotism. Think outside the box, what is possible.
We humans, we puny humans, don't begin to have the power to change climate. We can try, as we most certainly do, or rather our governments do, but success is minimal. At this point, I could branch off into HAARP or other out-there subjects, but I won't, for now.
I will conclude with my constant warning of don't believe what the news media tells you, and do your own research. Y'all have a great day!
The accused (Jordan) was not causing harm to anyone beyond the person he rear-ended, and as such was doing the proper and honest thing in reporting the wreck. The officer should have requested more background on Mr. Jordan before driving off to the jail. Surely, the officer could tell that he was not a wanted criminal.
"We made a mistake," said Debra Lanier of Carroll County Emergency 911. Is that the best the county could offer for twenty hours in the pokey? I suggest he settle this case for no less than $10,000. That is what my time is worth and his too. I may not know Mr. Jordan, but I feel his pain. That is all.
