Five Thoughts on a’s my turn edition?

Well, it’s been awhile but Beer figured that he’d allow me to post again. So, I’m going to do my thing and here we go….

1. I know my co-bloggers have stated their feelings on the lockout and Beer made it pretty obvious he won’t be back. Apparently, he’s not the only one. I was surprised just as many were and that “One-third of Canadians polled consider themselves “passionate” about hockey, one-third is neutral on the topic and one-third has no interest at all.” That means that 2/3 of Canadians are not concerned about the lockout. You hear that NHL and NHLPA, 2/3 of Canadians..yes Canadians aren’t interested anymore…have fun splitting those profits. Bonus note though, I found this ad to be interesting….

2. During the holidays, we all buy products that we probably don’t think about where they are made. We might for awhile become passionate about “Made in the USA” products, but after a while we find that finding items like that in all levels of purchases becomes difficult. I do believe if I received this in a purchase, I’d seriously work harder on looking at the labels.

3. I can’t believe that Christmas has come and gone already. I tried to watch as many of my favorite Christmas movies as possible, but I missed one of my favorites. So for all to enjoy is a clip that I just love….

4. I love going to the Ripley’s Fish Aquarium in Gatlingburg and Myrtle Beach. One of the highlights is going in the tunnel and watching the sharks swim past you. I might have to rethink that after seeing this video..yikes!

5. As we approach the New Year, I was intrigued to find out that I missed alot from the past year (like my appendix). I’m even more surprised to find out that missed all these new words and phrases.

Well folks, there you have it. Beer should be back from his “Alcoholiday” next week and I’m off to “Douse the Edisons.”

Christmas Song of the Day – 12-25-12

Merry Christmas everyone!

Well, we made it! it’s Christmas day! Sorry I’m a bit tardy today, already getting ready for the dinner and all. Oh well, on with the last Christmas song of the day for this year. It’s from one of my favorite movies, and it’s also what I’m starting on tomorrow. Christmas Vacation!

Merry Christmas!

Christmas Song of the Day – 12-24-12

Merry Christmas Eve everyone! We’re getting close now! Given that it is “The Night Before Christmas” and all, when I stopped and thought about it, there was really only one song to go with today. After all, everyone knows that tonight, well… Here comes Santa Claus.

See you tomorrow for one last Christmas Song!

Christmas Song of the Day – 12-23-12

Good morning everyone, here we are one day closer to Christmas. Today’s song? The story of our weather so far. Cold/hot, cold/hot… <a href="; Darned Misers.
See you tomorrow!

Christmas Song of the Day – 12-22-2012

Good morning everyone. Time for today’s song of the day. Hope you enjoy it, but then again who doesn’t enjoly some B.B. King around the holidays?

See you tomorrow!

Five Thoughts on a Friday – The “We’re Still Here” Edition

Good morning everyone, and welcome to December 21st!


Seems there was a bit of false advertising about the end of the world, huh? Ah well, that just means everyone needs to finish their shopping now. As for me, I’m gonna rush through this just a bit, just so I can jet out on a holiday boondoggle!

  1. Well, we may not have seen the end of the world, but we may well be seeing the end of Instagram. I mean, wow… how no one at Instagram saw a major backlash coming when they published their (Since revised again) updated terms of service with a line that most everyone took to mean “We have the right to sell any photo you upload without credit or payment to you”… well, wow. Not real bright, are they?
  2. You know, I’m usually a fan of people who go all Clark Griswold and do up the lights, regardless of their motives. But this lady, she just doesn’t get it. It’s the “holiday season” folks. You may not believe in all of them, or even any of them. But when you’re using your holiday light display to flip off your neighbors? You really don’t get it. Peace on Earth? Goodwill towards man? Aren’t those what it’s supposed to be about this time of year? Ah well.
  3. Since it is the holiday season – there’s one holiday tradition that seems to be the bane of nearly everyone’s existence this time of year. Yes, we’re talking about the fruitcake. They aren’t all bad though. And some are downright sought after. Especially the ones made by monks in Missouri. No I am not making that up, or confusing it with a Jimmy Buffett song.
  4. On a completely different note… I’ll just leave this one right here with precious little additional comment. It seems that in Australia…”An Australian court has ruled that a bureaucrat who was injured while having sex on a business trip is eligible for worker’s compensation benefits“.
  5. And lastly, I want to wish everyone a safe a happy, merry Christmas. And like I said last year – even if you don’t observe or celebrate Christmas, I hope you have a Merry Christmas anyways. Why? because if you do, it means you’ve probably had a pretty good day. And we can all use a few of those now and then.

Okay, that’s five and I’m out of here. I’m off to find a mis-scheduled doomsday party or something. That, and I’m going to leave while keeping a promise I made to myself. When I realized that the 21st I realized that there will probably be a certain REM song that is entirely overplayed today. Now, I may be looking for a Party at the End of the World, but I’m not using that one. I prefer something a bit more festive. Later folks!

Merry Christmas everyone!

Christmas Song of the Day – 12-21-12

Good Morning everyone! We’re still here! We’ll get into that a bit later with Five Thoughts, but for now, here’s today’s Christmas song of the day…. Ring the Bells!

See you tomorrow!
