The three stages of a man's life

Cappy sent me this. I'm not sure why I used it because I've been married to the same woman for 54 years and 2 months... Yes, I married a Saint who is tolerant, wise, understanding and forgiving...

But, I have known some friends who went through the process....

Now  that I've gotten started....

A friend asked me about my garden.

It's the best I ever had. Man made global warming (sarcasm alert!) allowed me to get it in early and the green beans have produced and produced and produced. We have some 40 odd packets in the freezer along with whole tomatoes, corn, purple hull peas....

I put in Better Girl tomatoes and they have out done my expectations. As I set them out I put in a table spoon of Epsom Salt, mixed well in the soil and used fertilizer with calcium. No end root of the fruit. And yes, boys and girls tomatoes are a fruit. Also helped the squash and cukes.

Tried a hybrid okra and it has done great. The pod is much longer and smaller in girth than what I've been using. Tastes great. Only I have lost the seed packet and can't remember the name.

I am, of course, required to talk a small bit about politics.

I look at Obama's "tax plan" as pure BS.  I say this because:

The Senate can't introduce a revenue bill. So Harry Reid mouthing about it is nonsense. You might say the entire thing is theater written and directed by Obama, produced by Harry Reid and distributed by the Lame Stream Media, aka ABC, CBS, NBC, CNN, MSNBC and the press.

BTW - If you have never visited GOC, you need to. He has 4 videos of John Sununu educating the talking heads. He really porks them and it is funny as hell. Too bad McCain's surrogates didn't have the balls to do the same in '08 but then McCain was too busy trying to be nice.


"Unlimited tolerance must lead to the disappearance of tolerance. If we extend unlimited tolerance even to those who are intolerant, if we are not prepared to defend a tolerant society against the onslaught of the intolerant, then the tolerant will be destroyed, and tolerance with them." - Karl Popper

 “It’s the presumption that Obama knows how all these industries ought to be operating better than people who have spent their lives in those industries, and a general cockiness going back to before he was president, and the fact that he has no experience whatever in managing anything. Only someone who has never had the responsibility for managing anything could believe he could manage just about everything.” - Thomas Sowell in Reason Magazine
