Music

A couple of Automotivators inspired by the Wisconsin public employees union protests.

Photos thanks to Ann Althouse here and here.

Around the blogosphere:

The Trog has a question about the happenings.

R.S. McCain has a list of employee salaries and wonders on a Cheesehead Revolution.

General Belvedere has a few choice words as well.

Also, my favorite frugal female has found the Wanted Poster of the Day Week Month.

Update: Chris hands the hypocrites their walking papers.

American Perspective found the Dem’s a hidey-hole.

Civil discourse?

Jesse Jackson: “Someone threw a protest and didn’t invite me?”

Shamus sez: ‘Edumicashun = Indoctrinashun’

and,

speaking of Spellchek…

Now, since it’s Friday, how about some music to fit the theme of this post?

Belated Valentine’s Day greetings to my female blogging friends.

Here’s a little Heart for you. <3

First up, we’ll keep with the All Sarah-cuda February theme. (You had to know that was coming, right?):

Next, another one of all time Heart faves:

Hope you ladies had a great Valentine’s Day.

I’ll try to be a little more punctual with the gifts next year. 🙂

Cheers!

Whaddup my blogging buddies and all you lurkers out there?

Yea, I’m talking to you ‘OBammy. I know you hired a Big Brother to keep an eye on me. That’s OK, I’ve put him to work. See, last week we installed a new monitor at the studio for a stereoscopic effect. In 3D, even.

Dual monitors rule.

After tweaking the settings a bit, I’m ready for the session this weekend.

That was last week.

This past weekend, a good number of the family and I made the 3 1/2 hour (1 way) trek over the river and through the woods to Grandpa’s house for his 83rd birthday. Yours truly was the dedicated driver that day. Tuckered out was I, but not too much the next day to continue preparations for the zombie apocalypse.

Enter the Robo-Gardening mini adventure.

This was taken yesterday evening after completing the plot and framing. I was going to stand the timbers up for about 3 feet to mount a screen for a dog barrier but then I thought, why not use the entire thing as a column and put in some runners to try out some upside down tomatoes? I’ll let you know how that comes out.

Got some good soil in the plot today and will be planting in about 3 weeks to a month. I may start the UD tomatoes as soon as the nurseries put them out. We’ll see.

That’s what’s up in my little world. I’m hoping to get some *cough* real *cough* blogging done later in the week. You know how it is,  sometimes one has to put personal bidness before blogging pleasure.

Check you later in the week.

Cheers!

‘Bot

Yea! I finally issued phase one of the behemoth project for comments today. If they decide to make any changes on design principles, they’re going to have an unruly robot to deal with, let me tell ya, especially after I tried to include them in the process and was brushed off. Grrrrrr.

Oh well, such is life. Today, I’m unchained…

Continuing the mantra of “I never met a communist I didn’t like,” the Obama’s welcomed Chinese Dictator Hu Jintau to the White-house with open arms and a formal dinner this week while his Democrat cronies prattled on about China’s currency policies and paid token lip service the country’s human rights violations, all the while warning China that “If they don’t straighten up, we’re going to use some really tough language, Little Mister.”

Note to our comrades in Congress: have you looked in the collective mirror lately? Anyone noticed that China holds the majority of US debt to the tune of $1   trillion? Threatening China with tariffs at this point would be akin to telling your loan shark to take a flying leap off the nearest skyscraper, with equally horrifying and predictable results. Cement shoes, anyone? Stop with the useless posturing and set your own finances in order before you start telling others to balance their checkbooks.

Personally, I think the biggest points scored for the Obama’s were by Michelle with a tie-dyed flaming red and orange something-or-other that must have been retro-fitted from a set of movie theater drapes, which was overly dramatic and so, fit the occasion perfectly, in her own obtuse way. Hu knows? Maybe the drapes in question will be returned to said cinema and enshrined after the occasion.

I also wonder if they re-gifted those Chairman Mao tree ornaments, or if the dinner plates were leaded with Mao’s likeness. Yum!

On a related note, a classic rock band has weighed in on the situation:

Heh, sorry. Couldn’t resist.

Here’s another relevant one:

Well, as close to here as I can be and not actually be here. This is a drive by post, really.

Work has been kicking my butt lately so I’m obviously not posting as much. I am however working on updating the US Timeline page in my spare time and yesterday added some new entries mentioned in an outstanding post over at Fuzzy Logic. I’m also working to add a few more later this evening or tomorrow. The rueful thing is, there are ever more additions to make to the list. 🙁

Meanwhile, my friend Steve sent me some musical pron that I just have to share. Some Rule 5 in the form of Meytal Cohen.

This chick rocks! Check it out:

What is Rule 5 you ask?

Cool! Woodsterman found Bailey the Unknown Reindeer

KurtP has some singing signing Monks.

Joan, you are beautifully eloquent:

I’m curious. Is there some dark harm in believing in a virgin birth at that time, in that place, in those inconvenient circumstances? In believing in such a thing, am I inspired to fear and loathing, or might I share in an utterly unlikely miracle that makes me doubt my own goodness– and to look up for answers instead of around for a stone?

Also, this video, because charity begins at home and Joan asked us to share it. Visit her site for more info.

I may add on later, if time permits.

Merry Christmas, my friends and reader. May God bless you all.

Articles that caught my attention this morning. I’m just bookmarking as I read here, so no particular order. Kind of a stream of consciousness, random sampled information ingestion.

It tastes better than it sounds. Try it.

Ok, brunch is so over. Time for a Sunday drive and maybe some bar-b-que later, or something. I am not spending the rest of the day on the computer. So there.

Have you noticed what a beautiful day it is?
