Apparently It’s a Holiday

We’ve got the cheese ball out, the “Hough-hough-hough!” cheap champagne cooling off outside, and we may even have a few illegal fireworks (hmmm… well, bottle rockets, at least) in a box out in the garage.

New Year’s Eve is GO.

Books of 2011: Last Minute

I read one of those books that you’re never quite sure if it got you put on a watch list or not when you bought it. You know the type–out of control government, someone pushes back, some, um, very practical advice on doing some not very nice things, that sort. Needless to say, it goes towards my count but I’m not going to put it out on the internet for all to see–it’s one of those that makes you a little paranoid about such things.

Hey, my blog, my book, my rules.

I guess tomorrow I can start a new label for the books of 2012!

Dr. Worm

Because my brother was singing it and now it’s stuck in my head.

TMBG excellence.

A pertinent scripture

Proverbs 28:2 (HCSB):
When a land is in rebellion, it has many rulers,
but with a discerning and knowledgeable person, it endures.

While you might take this to say that the Proverbs are pushing an “Only Ones” mentality, I sure can’t say that right now we don’t have any “discerning and knowledgeable” people in charge of anything, and the “enduring” part doesn’t seem to be very realistic, and between all of the entrenched bureaucracy, states trying to get back their power, justice department trying to start a war with Mexico, tea party, OWS, Republican, and Democrat bickering, and a president who flies off to Hawaii at the drop of a hat, there isn’t much leadership floating around out there either.

Interesting times…

Flower Warfare: The Beginning

I love Freddiew’s videos. I think I’m pretty close to the target audience, though, so I may be a bit biased. The first flower warfare video was pretty cool, and so is the prequel:

How To

Quote: “Soldiers must be cautious when throwing grenades up stairs. This is not the most desired method of employment.”

Something you may not have known, but now you do

So much random stuff on the internet.  It’s a wonder how all those tubes don’t clog up.

One of these things is not like the others

A list in the newspaper this morning about all the different things I will be able to vote on next year. Can you spot the one issue that separates the real hippies from the pretenders?

The Avalanches were first introduced to me by Butch, I then showed them to my brother, who then went out and bought the album.

Hot Springs

I’m taking the day off (Monday was a holiday, then worked yesterday, then today off? SLACKER!) and we’re going to venture out into the mountains go go to the Ouray Hot Springs, one of my favorite places on Earth. Hopefully it won’t snow us out like it did last Christmastime–though it is always fun to sit in the pool with the snow coming down around your ears.

So you all have a nice day, too, I’ll be back this evening if all goes according to plan!

From my world-traveling friend in Montana. He’s probably been to most of those places…
