Random Tuesday Morning Thoughts


  • I've had crazy dreams lately (although that's not unusual.) Last night one started with me and Mrs. LL talking to some park ranger as to whether we had time to take a particular hiking route. "Yeah. It'll be steep and dangerous, but I think you can make it." And so it began. 
  • Try to explain to a Third Grade Girl why the Rangers pitchers are batting in San Diego.  And that will automatically lead to a request to stay up just a little later to see Matt Harrison bat. Request granted, by the way.
  • My car got diagnosed as having a battery on the verge of going out. Not sure I believe that, but I trust the "diagnoser." Every battery I've ever replaced was completely dead, so when you take a wrench to the positive connection of one that still has some life in it, are sparks normal? Or should I grab a hazmat uniform?
  • And have batteries gone up in price dramatically over the last couple of years?
  • Creepy: Facebook acquires a facial recognition company from Israel for $60 million.
  • The story about the guy in Plano who had a bomb go off in his face while apparently trying to blow up a residential gas line is one strange story. I'd be surprised if the FBI didn't jump in on that one.  Edit: I meant I would have been surprised if the FBI didn't jump in. Poorly worded. Saw they were out there shortly after it happened. 
  • Bob Costas interview with Jerry Sandusky was historic but it is absolutely amazing that NBC sat on footage which was even more shocking. What were they thinking?
  • I carry my driver's license and one credit card in an iPhone case and nothing else. (I was going to link to the case made by Case-Mate but I'm not sure they make it any longer.)
  • Walmart and Aisle-Blocking-With-Cart-By-Oblivious-Customer go hand in hand, don't they?
  • I don't know if it is a big deal, but teenager Cassie Smith out of Bridgeport is currently second in the West Texas Junior Open. 
  • The Messenger's website is still having problems. Even the home page was gone this morning.  (I dont' even remember if the Mineral's Club or Wise County Singles Club are meeting this week.)
  • The pic below is from yesterday . . . . ?

Confused about the FBI comment. Plano police called them in almost immediately. So I guess they did jump in...

Could it be that NBC was protecting Jerry Sandusky? Liberals tend to be very sympathetic to people no matter what.

I guess you didn't read the story you linked?

Why are you linking us to an update page dated June 14, where is today's update!
I used to think Edwards was a decent guy, I now see him for the sleaze he really has always been. Feel sorry for the young kids Elizabeth left behind. Morals and decency are things they def will NOT be taught by him.

Don't be so naive.

Oblivious Customer can be found in all grocery stores, but they stroll the Walmarts in droves the way wildebeests graze across the savanna of eastern Africa...herd mentality! (Hmmm, perhaps a few lions let loose near the frozen pizzas would thin the herd a bit?)

Speaking of SD Padres -
I wonder if their third baseman ever has to deal with people intentionally mispronouncing his name:
"Uh, Mr. Chase...Headey?"
"That's Headley!"

Interesting write-up about the value of the warrant round-ups you were so uppity a while back. Looks like they'll be less and less serious about them in the future.

Barry, I love it when you share your brushes with the real world.

"The diagnoser" They are called technicians. It makes me think of slang names for attorneys.........hmmmm.

Electronically controlled cars will not work if the battery cannot maintain a minumum voltage.

As far as the price of batteries goes; where have you been? Thanks to the 2008 financial debacle, the lowering of the value of the dollar and all the white collar theft in this country, everything costs more! (Oh and the price of energy) I wonder how much government regulation has to do with it?

Why hell Barry, those sick liberals at NBC identify with this filthy child molesting homosexual. They feel his pain. They understand his wants and needs. They are just trying to help a brother member of NAMBLA out.

Sicko's.

I had a crazy dream last night too. I woke up with a pounding heart, but I don't remember the dream and I don't know it I actually woke up or was just dreaming I had a pounding heart.
