buffet table knows nothing of the Christmas spirit. In fact,
if you see carrots, leave immediately. Go next door, where
they're serving rum balls.
2. Drink as much eggnog as you can. And quickly. Like fine
single-malt scotch, it's rare. In fact, it's even rarer than
single-malt scotch. You can't find it any other time of year
but now. So drink up! Who cares that it has 10,000 calories
in every sip? It's not as if you're going to turn into an
eggnog-aholic or something. It's a treat. Enjoy it. Have one
for me. Have two. It's later than you think. It's Christmas!
3. If something comes with gravy, use it. That's the whole
point of gravy. Gravy does not stand alone. Pour it on. Make
a volcano out of your mashed potatoes. Fill it with gravy.
Eat the volcano. Repeat.
4. As for mashed potatoes, always ask if they're made with
skim milk or whole milk. If it's skim, pass. Why bother?
It's like buying a sports car with an automatic
5. Do not have a snack before going to a party in an effort
to control your eating. The whole point of going to a
Christmas party is to eat other people's food for free. Lots
of it. Hello?
6. Under no circumstances should you exercise between now
and New Year's. You can do that in January when you have
nothing else to do. This is the time for long naps, which
you'll need after circling the buffet table while carrying a
10-pound plate of food and that vat of eggnog.
7. If you come across something really good at a buffet
table, like frosted Christmas cookies in the shape and size
of Santa, position yourself near them and don't budge. Have
as many as you can before becoming the center of attention.
They're like a beautiful pair of shoes. If you leave them
behind, you're never going to see them again.
8. Same for pies. Apple. Pumpkin. Mincemeat. Have a slice of
each. Or, if you don't like mincemeat, have two apples and
one pumpkin. Always have three. When else do you get to have
more than one dessert? Labor Day?
9. Did someone mention fruitcake? Granted, it's loaded with
the mandatory celebratory calories, but avoid it at all
cost. I mean, have SOME standards.
10. One final tip: If you don't feel terrible when you leave
the party or get up from the table, you haven't been paying
attention. Reread tips; start over, but hurry, January is
just around the corner.
I got these tips from Gailsie who is currently doing Missionary work with orphans in Tanzania
She won't have these options in Tanzania but I know she is making Christmas better for those around her!!
Merry Christmas Mama Gailsie!!

actually he introduced himself with a stabbing pain
in my back...I went to the ER where it took an hour
to register, even though I was in obvious discomfort.
I should have told them I had Chest Pains, exploding
Kidneys don't count..Anyway a little Morphine and
then a Cat Scan confirmed that I indeed had a 3mm stone
with a long way to travel before I'd be rid of him.
While I waited in my room for the Doctors orders, I
switched on the TV and Rocky Balboa was fighting Mr T,
I named my stone Rocky, I just hope there are no sequels!!
My stone is 1mm smaller than the one pictured above,
The Rabbit below had it much worse than I,
but he looks happy now!!
I Can't wait!!

With exception to the numerous commercials, Heroes is a great show. Last night a new hero was in the mix, until Sylar ripped her brains out....Will Hiro be able to jump back in time and save her? Will he be back to Save Claire "The Cheerleader" next week........Interestingly Mr. Bennet, Claire's father, may not be the scoundrel he appeared to be...while he will stop at nothing to save his daughter, he does still have a dark side.....Can't wait till next week, but I may tape it first, then speed through the commercials...If you haven't seen the show you are definitely missing out, heck it's so good they will probably cancel it.....

Arnold "Red" Auerbach died suddenly on Saturday Oct 28, 2006 near his home in Washington. He was 89.
He was known for his hot tempered coaching style, and his ability to acquire players who would ultimately be superstars -- like Bill Russell and Larry Bird.
"Red Auerbach was the consummate teacher, leader, and a true pioneer of the sport of basketball," NBA Commissioner David Stern said in a statement on www.nba.com.
"The NBA wouldn't be what it is today without him."
He led the Celtics to 10 Eastern Division titles in 16 years, and his string of NBA titles from 1959-1966 remains unmatched in U.S. professional sports.
You have to do something special or they don’t craft a bobble-head after you!!
Miss You Red RIP 1917-2006

St. Louis fans celebrate the Cardinal's, 2006 World Series Champs, while in the dugout the Tiger's party is over. As a Red Sox fan I understand how Tiger's fans feel this morning......Blame me, I picked them to win and I'll tell you that's been the curse of every sporting event I've bet on this year......

A Greek and an Italian were sitting down one day debating who had the superior culture.
The Greek says, "We have the Parthenon."
The Italian says, "We have the Coliseum."
The Greek says, "We had great mathematicians."
The Italian says, "We had the Roman Empire."
And so on and so on for hours, until finally the Greek lights up and says... "We invented sex."
The Italian nods slowly and thinks, then replies, "That is true -- but it was Italians who introduced it to women."

The parade ended with a brilliant spectacle of fireworks which lit up
the sky.Reuters News , photos from China Daily
My observations: They had quite a turnout, everyone dressed the same, Sanctions don't dampen their party spirit and they really like to light it up, I wonder if the signs that you can see from above say anything about where the WMD's might be more likely they're just giving the satellites that look down on them the finger.
Final impression...scary bastards

Here is a song called Mary's Phone Machine that was written by my friend Allen Estes. He called our house after hearing about Mary's Death and wrote the song shortly after...Mary is actually in the song at the end and she would be proud to know it was put on a CD for Katrina Relief Titled "After The Storm Volume 1"
She would not have agreed with the song, but then she was in denial....

There's a flood watch For Cape Cod and Southern New England coastal areas. Ted Kennedy jumped off the SS Pork Barrel which was anchored just off Hyannis MA where Kennedy was dining on large quantities of food with some unknown lobbyists who were attempting to gain favors out of the over-sized Senator from Massachusetts. One man, who would not give his name, reported that "after Kennedy jumped, the boat nearly capsized"

Happy Birthday to http://www.current.tv/ I found the place yesterday and posted the web address, after I found it on Comcast Digital cable I watched it for a couple hours. The worst thing was an ad for ringtones but that was outweighed by so many great things I think I am hooked. The videos on Glaciers, Lebanon, Bikes oh and Burlesque were great...Tune in watch let me know what you think.

Current TV is working with Comcast, here is how they say it works:
Anyone who wants to contribute can upload a video. Then, everyone in the Current online community votes for what should be on TV. You can join in at either stage -- watch & vote or make video. (We've also got online training to help you get the skills you need to make TV!)
This isn't a "cut the crap button but possibly a good trend in television.
Okay, This isn't about TV but have you ever wanted to go to space? Currently, I don't see too many ways short of alien abduction, that a "regular person"(whatever that is) can get there. Celestis will take you there, but only if your dead!!
Finally, The epic drama "Heroes" chronicles the lives of ordinary people who discover they possess extraordinary abilities. Find the rest of the write-up at The Futon Critic Maybe we'll get hooked on this show and they can cancel it!!!

I am sick of the programming that is coming my way. Networks and
many viewers, are stuck on "Reality" shows.
What "reality" are they presenting.
Watch people cat fighting, lying and being unscrupulous so they can win.
I try to avoid people like that.
When I watch TV I want to be entertained.
That happens now is when I rent a DVD.
The past season had some good prospects, but they were short lived.
The Invasion Series and The Surface series were both cancelled.
Too much money? Had to pay writers and actors!!
I am mystified by the popularity of shows like American Idol.
I mean these performers aren't even doing original music.
Do any of these people ever listen to the radio?
Whatever happened to Music Videos?
MTV's programmed music out of there schedule.
I gotta go, Pimp My Ride is coming on. AHHHHH

Googles Blogspot Making the News

San Francisco resident Jesse Thorn, 25, champions the underground
comic with his blog. The site features a popular podcast where Mr.
Thorn interviews some of the nation's top talent and comics
occasionally perform sketches. "With only a couple of mass-media
outlets for comedy, one of my goals is to help get all the great
comedy that's bubbling up from the underground noticed," says Mr.
Thorn, who produces the podcast from his living room.
The blog revolves around the podcast, offering Mr. Thorn a platform
for news, commentary and "other bits and bytes that wouldn't work on
the air," he says. Sometimes readers offer dispatches from the field.
For example, one reader wrote about comedian Dave Chappelle's recent
surprise drop-in show at The Punchline in San Francisco.

When you were 9, playing your armpit was a cool trick. Now, as an adult, you can still appreciate a good body-based feat, but you're more discriminating. Take that tickle in your throat; it's not worth gagging over. Here's a better way to scratch your itch: "When the nerves in the ear are stimulated, it creates a reflex in the throat that can cause a muscle spasm," says Scott Schaffer, M.D., president of an ear, nose and throat specialty center in Gibbsboro, New Jersey. "This spasm relieves the tickle."
