Well ummmm there was going to be a hilarious rant here this morning, but I'm wicked retahed! I had it all typed up and ready to go. I forgot on to save it and didn't plug the computer in. So, I woke to flat battery, Windows starting in the safe mode and the flaven!

One the other hand, the bagels, and organic, locally grown fruit is fresh & the fair trade coffee is perking away. BLOG! BLOG! BLOG! The day away. I will be traveling later today I will try to check in from the road.


MONDO, OUT!

Morning folks... :donut:

Momma....Mooks.



Speaking as an av-dork, sometimes the Flight Data Recorder does not yield any useful clues as to why a plane went down. (or a relationship in this case.)



If you need an example, check out the series of mysterious B737 crashes in the early 90s due to "uncommanded rudder movement". There's only a theory still, lo these many years later.



UAL Flight 585



Skip this one if you're flying over the holidays, hmm?

This was in my head during my commute this morning for some reason:

Two roads diverged in a yellow wood,

And sorry I could not travel both

And be one traveler, long I stood

And looked down one as far as I could

To where it bent in the undergrowth;



Then took the other, as just as fair,

And having perhaps the better claim,

Because it was grassy and wanted wear;

Though as for that the passing there

Had worn them really about the same,



And both that morning equally lay

In leaves no step had trodden black.

Oh, I kept the first for another day!

Yet knowing how way leads on to way,

I doubted if I should ever come back.



I shall be telling this with a sigh

Somewhere ages and ages hence:

Two roads diverged in a wood, and I--

I took the one less traveled by,

And that has made all the difference.

Oh, I've caught SEVERAL in my place. I have the little traps, the single catcher ones.

But, this is the first time my cat has caught the mouse going for the trap red handed. And, brought it out from under the sink. Oy! I think the big trap might be better cause I can catch and release more than one at a time...

Mala...we wanted to last night too. By the time we caught this thing it was scared! We thought it was dead, but it wasn't....just in severe shock. I left the trap outside and I checked this morning and he was gone. So, he must have recovered and



He's probably back in my house having peanut butter sandwiches with my cat.



Comment by TriSec on 11/21/2007 17:06:30
Don't forget the Kennedy assasination was as traumatic to our parent's generation as the Challenger or 9/11 is to us.



I share that with my mother...she can't talk about it without shedding a tear, and to this day I am unable to watch the entire launch sequence from 01/28/86.



9/11, on the other hand, is still so monstrous that it seems surreal when I see it.





Comment by livingonli on 11/21/2007 17:19:27
It is hard to picture New York without the WTC even after all these years.



I was a freshman in college when the Challenger explosion happened.. I remember hearing about it second hand because I was in a class at the time.

Comment by wickedpam on 11/21/2007 17:21:48
Tri - I can't watch footage from 9/11. It makes me flinch every time. All I can think about is what were those innocent people thinking when they realized what was happening and it makes me cry.



My mom wants to watch things like "Flight 93" or that one that was in the theatre. Michael Moore's movie was the last 9/11 thing I saw and I bawled my eyes out and it pissed me off.



As for Challenger - I can't take my eye's off that it's the one time Regan's words actually moved me. Who ever that writer was for that speech they wrote some beautiful words.

I just wanted to say I hope everyone has a safe and Happy Thanksgiving and stop for just a moment and think about others who are not safe,happy or able to choose who and where we spend however we choose to mark this time of the year. I hope everyone has something and someone to remind us of what we have and what weve lost and I hope everyone has some reason to feel Thankful and Blessed. Sorry for maybe not saying this perhaps as great as someone else may have been able to but I do truly mean these words. Be safe.

Well, I get to go home in an hour. We've got pie and snickerdoodles to make yet.



As always, a stunning number of cookies in the TriSec Industrial Kitchen tend to break and fall into my mouth.



I wonder if we're going to have a repeat of "The Gravy Incident" again this year?

It's not something that comes up in everyday conversation. But I do miss them. I was helping Mom out for a few years after Dad died since I was still living at home at the time.

Pie is done; cookies are done, and surprisingly enough, I'll have the evening to watch the Mythbusters!



Mondo, don't argue with Bob about Vodka; it just isn't worth it. (Barbarian.)



I've recently taken a liking to Sobieski Vodka, imported from Poland. Don't be put off by the plastic bottle or the lower price; it's good stuff. It probably just hasn't been "discovered" yet.

Comment by livingonli on 11/22/2007 01:09:21
I would definitely avoid the people who get up to go to the store that early. If I had a normal schedule, I would still sleep in on Friday. Come to think of it, I wouldn't be in the stores at all.

Tonight's worst person list;



3. Kelly Anne Conway-for arguing that not allowing the firing of people for not speaking English will lead to terrorist attacks. What a racist pile of shit.

2. John Gibson-For saying the Dems are calling for more failure by trying to get out of Iraq which is a logical fallacy.

1. T. Bone Pickens- for welching on his $1 million dollar wager to prove the swiftboaters are liars by saying John Kerry now has to release his personal diary and all his records on Vietnam.

Hi Everyone, Our Kohls store here in Jax is opening at 4am Friday. I like a good deal but I am pretty sure they have nothing that would inspire me to roll out and drive about 20 miles to shop. Maybe Im just getting to old or to set in my ways!

Yes back in the 1980s that year I was 25 and married with a 4 y/o son. Where in the world has time gone? My son will be 27 in Jan. Sometimes I long for the chance to go back and change mistakes but I really wonder if I would have the courage to do things very differently. That is one thing none of us can ever know.
