The homefront

Being somewhat pop-culturally-challenged, I don't claim to know much about 'celebrity'.

But I do know how to use The Google, and found the following:

Sir Paul McCartney owns six homes, and it's possible he owns four others.

Britney Spears about six.

Intensive Googling only comes up with ONE home for Paris Hilton; she can rely on a planet-full of hotels for her digs.

Brangelina - who knows. They are high-class renters.

I bet each one of these folks could come up with the exact number of homes owned.

Thurston & Lovey McCain - not so much.

Random stuff

Happy birthday to Mr. Andante! Okay, it's a day late.

I'd call him older than dirt, but since I have a few years on him - I won't go there.


Since I've been semi-incapacitated by numb hands & feet, I have to hobble along with the help of cane and I can't hobble very far without my leg muscles feeling like limp noodles. I've filled out my application for a 'handicapped' placard so I can park a bit closer to my destination.

In the meantime, I'm eyeing those handicapped parking spots enviously. Not because they're more convenient - because they are filled with shiny new cars.

I'm hoping this means a $5 handicapped placard turns my 100K+ mileage Oldsmobile station wagon into s nice, shiny, fuel efficient ride.



More of this, please!

All hail nuclear power!

SO glad to hear John McSame's plan to build 45 new nuclear plants!

And just think....we can knock that number down to 35 by building the first ten in his back yards!

So long, Skip

Those of us who wear a Braves bag over our heads are mourning the death of 'The Voice of the Braves', Skip Caray, who died Sunday. He would have been 69 years old on August 12th.

Skip was the son of Harry Caray and father of current Braves broadcaster, Chip.

Rest ye gentle, Skip.

I use3d; toi be3;pa p43t t ryt goiod typist

Which translates as "I used to be a pretty good typist".

One of the many fun things about the chemo side effects is peripheral neuropathy - the nerve endings in my fingers and toes were destroyed. They will (or hopefully SHOULD) regenerate over time.

I hate to wish away time - but PLEASE let that time be soon.

So that's my latest excuse for not posting very often or even leaving many comments around. I'm still lurking.

Well, those few sentences took about 10 minutes. But for a real thrill, you should see me trying to walk on numb feet.

Next CT scan is Sept. 5th; I'll see the doctor for the results on the 10th.

A stray thought

If Hillary Rodham Clinton were the presumptive Democratic presidential nominee and she said "Republicans would try to scare voters by pointing out that (s)he doesn’t look like all those other presidents on the dollar bills.”

...would the McSame campaign be hissy-fitting that she'd played the sexist card?

Just askin'.....
