Hey, a lot has happened around here in the past few days. From the funeral Saturday of our Aunt Louise to the shopping trip this morning. And nah, not going to update you on all that. Otherwise I would be typing away here for the next hour or so! So will just take today and tell you about our day.
First up and early. Went to the gym. The first time in 6 days! That’s how much has been going on with us, to not go to the gym for 5 straight days. Of course, I hit the bike first and really started pumping to the point that the yellow warning to slow down never went off! Then the massage chair and just to massage the lower back this time. I needed that as my lower back has been driving me crazy. Anyways, even got on the treadmill and wife said I was really into it. Then we came home, changed clothes, then off to wally world and the grocery store. Had to get some more dog food (she is picky as hell now that we only give her the canned stuff, and that canned stuff must be a certain brand or else). And wife was getting some toothpaste when I looked at the power toothbrushes to get one to replace mine (hint people, replace such things every 60 days max unless it is one that has removable head to replace the brush) and found a good one that had 3 brushes (there you go, 6 months worth right there), floss attachment with about 20 floss heads (should save me time on flossing) plus 3 rubber tips to massage the gums and teeth. Even wife liked it and got one also.
Then it was to the garden department as wife wanted a certain kind of plant for the flower gardens (Silvermound). Bought four of them, 5 bucks a pop! This afternoon, I got out the shovel and dug the holes for them where my wife wanted them to be. After that, wife says, need about 3 more! Geesh. She could care less about any other plant, just these to cover the gardens completely. Tell the truth, I agree with her as it will be less work for me from now on.
And dammit, gas prices! Did fill up at $3.59 a gallon (was $3.62 a gallon yesterday in Des Moines and did not get any). And bam! Price drops an entire penny here in town 15 minutes later. Had filled up in another town. And have this sneaky idea that it may drop further by the end of this week.
Did not do it today, will for sure do it tomorrow. That is take my old recliner chair out to the curb (who knows, someone may drive by and pick it up!) for the city wide curb pickup this Friday. And get the new recliner out of the van (takes up a lot of room there). Then convince our dog that she no longer can sit in any chair we have!
Now on the the weird story of this guy suing a hospital for giving him a circumcision when he was an infant.
Read this carefully, 28 years later and he never knew he was circumcised?
It took 28 years for Dean Cochrun to realize that he’d been circumcised, and now he’s decided that he’d like his foreskin back. Cochrun has filed a lawsuit against South Dakota’s Sanford Hospital, claiming that “an unknown doctor” convinced his mother that it was medically necessary to snip his newborn naughty bits. “I was robbed of sensitivity during sexual intercourse as well as the sense of security and well-being I am entitled to,” he wrote. Cochrun is asking for $1,000 in damages and for his foreskin to be replaced. He’s also currently in prison on a kidnapping conviction. We dare you not to wonder if that’s where he made his decades-late anatomical discovery.
Ted Nugent, at the NRA convention Saturday:
“If Barack Obama becomes the president in November, again, I will either be dead or in jail by this time next year.”
A Secret Service spokesman, responding accordingly:
“We are aware of the incident, and we are conducting appropriate follow-up.”
DNC Chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz, going on the offensive today:
“Mitt Romney must condemn Nugent’s violent and hateful rhetoric immediately, as it has no place in our political discourse or this campaign.”
Romney spokeswoman Andrea Saul, forced to play defense:
“Divisive language is offensive no matter what side of the political aisle it comes from. Mitt Romney believes everyone needs to be civil.”
(Let me look and think about this, the New Black Panthers offer a $10,000 reward in writing on a man’s head and nobody does a fucking thing about it, but let Ted Nugent say something rhetorically about the Obamessiah and the Secret Service is investigating him? Sounds like the racist machine run by Holder is moving again against whiteys.)
This goes with the story above. Only the democrats would try to connect dots that don’t exist.
Democrats are trying to tie Mitt Romney to over-the-top language by hard rock musician Ted Nugent, drawing attention to his words through emails and a new video.
Speaking at a National Rifle Association convention this weekend, Mr. Nugent gave Mr. Romney his vigorous endorsement, calling the Obama administration “vile, evil, America-hating,” and saying that the president and attorney general don’t “even like the Constitution.” He continued with a veiled threat: “If Barack Obama becomes the president in November again, I will either be dead or in jail by this time next year.”
That got the Secret Service’s attention. “We are aware of the incident and we are conducting appropriate follow-up,” said spokesman Brian Leary. He said that could include interviews and other steps.
But the Democrats smell political blood and are using the comments to rile up their supporters and to try and draw Mr. Romney into the story. Mr. Nugent had said via Twitter that he decided to endorse the likely Republican nominee “after a long heart&soul conversation.”

Better be more remedies available than just this.
(The Washington Times) — Senate Republicans on Tuesday turned to Miguel Estrada, a man whom Democrats denied a presidential appointment in 2003, to be their lawyer as they fight to overturn some of President Obama’s own appointments.
The move escalates the simmering constitutional battle between the Congress and the White House over several appointments Mr. Obama made in January, when the Senate was still meeting every few days and considered itself in session.
Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell, Kentucky Republican, said he and his colleagues are filing friend-of-the-court briefs in an ongoing challenge to Mr. Obama’s appointments, and said Mr. Estrada will be their lawyer.
“The president’s decision to circumvent the American people by installing his appointees at a powerful federal agency, when the Senate was not in recess, and without obtaining the advice and consent of the Senate, is an unprecedented power grab,” Mr. McConnell said.
At issue were Mr. Obama’s recess appointment of a head of a new consumer protection board and several members to the National Labor Relations Board. Republicans had signaled they would block the nominations, and had forced the Senate to remain in pro forma session even as most lawmakers went home for the Christmas and New Year’s holidays.
But the administration argues that with most senators at home, the chamber was not able to give “advice and consent” on nominations, so even though the Senate considered itself in session, he did not accept that determination. Under provisions of the Constitution, if the Senate is in recess he can appoint officeholders.
Nearly a year went by before the mysteriously blow-dried coif of Ensign Chuck Hord, “lost at sea in 1908,” caused journalists to question the Navy man’s claim to perpetuity at the Pentagon — his portrait hung in a hallway alongside the likenesses of Patton and Eisenhower. Turns out that “Ensign Chuck Hord” is really a 1982 portrait of Navy retiree Capt. Tuck Hord. Wait… what? As far as the Pentagon goes, the backstoryreveals what might be the best prank ever.
