911 Dinosaurs

The other day, while looking in my suitcase for something else, I came across a Magnum White package. Then I started thinking about our local market and the fact that they carried all the Magnum products except the Magnum White bars. So, as I am wont to do in these instances, I fired off an email asking why they didn't carry it since the people at Magnum had told me all they had to do was order it. Saturday night around 19h30, I got a call from the manager of the market. He told me they are going to special order them....just for me. I LOVE EMAIL!!!

I watched the entire six-part TV series on dinosaurs; Planet Dinosaur, online of course. I rarely watch anything on TV anymore because of all the commercials. I have no objection to the shows running commercials to pay the bills, but it has gotten to the point where the commercials are longer than the shows. I used to love anything to do with dinosaurs, but this show cured me of that. If one is to judge by this show, the sole purpose of dinosaurs was to kill and eat other dinosaurs, or to be killed and eaten by other dinosaurs. You can only watch so much of that until you become totally bored with it all. I can see why the show only lasted six episodes.

Back in the middle of November, I called 911 to get an ambulance to take me to the hospital. The real purpose of the trip simply was to get a shot of oxygen. I was under the mistaken belief that it was free. I say mistaken because I got a bill from the Fort Lauderdale Fire and Rescue for $150. The total bill bill for the five minute, two mile ride was $700. I won't be calling 911 any time in the future, it's cheaper to take a taxi!

How many more millions of dollars are these ridiculous Republicans going to waste on their insipid campaigns for a post they know they have no chance of winning?  One has to wonder about the intelligence of anyone who votes Republican.  And Democrats are only marginally better.....if they would just DO something when they have the opportunity.  Is it really a puzzle as to why this country is in such dire straits?  We desperately need another party or two with real country-first attitudes.

There is always so much in your posts; music, news, your views on things (on which I mostly completely agree)... and especially your humour!
