Random Friday Tuesday Morning Thoughts



  • A popular song/commercial ("Oh, oh, sometimes I get a good feeling") actually has the female vocals pulled from this old song. I thought it was Adele.
  • Mrs. LL loves her new glasses so much she replaced her Facebook profile pic to show them off. (The photo she replaced had me in it with her. Hey!!!)
  • A Texas couple was awarded $13 million in Fort Worth in a defamation suit against people who thought they were posting anonymously on the web.
  • I actually saw Nolan Ryan pitch with Pudge Rodriguez catching in the old Arlington Stadium. I'm not sure I appreciated what I was seeing at the time. (Rodriguez throwing the ceremonial first pitch from the plate to second was really cool last night.)
  • There's a "UIL Lone Star Cup" and Decatur is currently sixth?
  • I think Deion Sanders house in Prosper has been on the market forever. I remember a few years back he lowered the price to $21 million. There's probably a pretty small pool of potential buyers. 
  • And remember Noel Devine? He was the football star of the future about five years ago who Sanders brought to Prosper to "mentor"  but then, being 18, left suddenly and without notice to return to Florida. He actually had a pretty good career with West Virginia but, after not being drafted, he walked out on the Philadelphia Eagles who had signed him as a free agent last year. 
  • For what it's worth, I'm censoring most of Big Tex's comments. I do declare we understand certain beliefs that he holds. 
  • An Alvord pharmacy was burglarized last night. You'd think, with the growing addiction to pain killers in this country, that would happen far more often. 
  • There have been few politicians fall as fast and hard as former Democratic golden boy John Edwards. His criminal trial began yesterday. 
  • I'm not sure which nickname for Mitt Romney will stick more: Gordon Gekko or Thurston Howell III.
  • Other than jewelry, does the average person own anything made out of gold? 
  • How long could the average Lockheed Martin worker strike before it begins to really hurt financially? The Union provides some income during the strike, doesn't it?
  • I'll say it: It's getting too hot too fast.

I work at Lockheed and they receive $150 a week from the union after 3 weeks of being on a strike. That info is also in this article from the ST.

Barry, (From the WCM Update) you missed a chance for a good debate in Chico.

HISTORIC RENDERING – With a pair of Monday night votes, one approving $83,414 worth of remodeling and the other a $4,675 purchase of stage and window curtains, the Chico city council set into motion a quick makeover of the old Chico school cafetorium into a new civic center and community room.

almost everyone has gold in their home that is not jewelry. Look in your electronics, appliances, phones. All of these things have gold in them.

the project in park springs is Pioneer Oil building a 120 acre gas and oil compressor station and distribution plant, this is the largest gas handling facility in the barnette shale. it will be a city unto itself.

Unfortunately, Big Tex, and. Those like him, are all too real. In rural counties, they're called 'republicans'.

Since Gov. Romney's given name is Willard, "Mitt" seems to have seniority in the nickname department. Heck, he'd probably go with "Not Obama" if that will close out the general election in his favor.

I wish Chico would spend that money on paving a few streets.

Rage, Too bad you don't have any shame in being on the same team as the KKK and the New and Improved Black Panthers and the 99%. All of whom are democrats.

I have come across more democrat bigots than republican bigots, by far. Rage, you again don't know what you are talking about.

It wouldn't matter if John Edwards was a Democrat or a Republican. He's just plain sleeze no matter how you call it.

ALCORN is meeting at a mostly white country club in the metroplex as we speak. I thought they hated " those people." Why would they patronize their business?

Trayvon, the burgular/drug dealer had gold teeth. He also had a sack of gold jewery and a screwdriver at school.

This mihgt be tmi, but I had 4 gold crowns on the 4 very back molars. All 4 are now titanium posts with a crown. (about $6,000 each). I did save the crowns for many years (not sure why) and recently cashed them in. I did get about $40 for each gold crown. Too bad it wasn't $6,000 each to pay for this mouth.

Pharmacies get hit all the time you just don't hear about it and the pain pill addiction has been big for 20 years or more but once again you just don't hear about it.

John Edwards gives politicians a bad name. Heck, he even gives sleezoids and scum a bad name.

11:57, Not up on history are you?

Anonymous said...

12:59 - it is you who is not up on history. Typical.
I don't even think Fox News tries to put the KKK in the ranks of Democrats. I'm not saying there are not ANY KKK members that have voted Democrat, but generally, and in RECENT history, they vote Republican because they think Democrats are too kind to minorities. But "too kind" is not the wording they would use.

The Klan was Democratic till LBJ signed the Civil Rights Act of 1964 so now KKK=GOP

Today's RTG looks pretty MILFy to me. She just had a tough act to follow from yesterday

The new and improved Black Panthers and the 99ers still hard core weenies.

The KKK are very liberal. Liberal weenies. They never would vote Republican. Any KKK member caught voting Republican would just be kicked out of the KKK. That is how liberal the KKK is. They have their liberal weenie standards. Conservative Teabagger stuff is frowned upon. Those liberal Klansmen! They have George McGovern tattoos.
