Amazing Homeland Security

Tuesday, November 09, 2010

LOS ANGELES — A mysterious 'missile' streaked across the sky off the Southern California coast Monday night and was caught on video by a local CBS News helicopter camera. KCBS said the trail was visible from Los Angeles. The helicopter crew described the missile's location as 35 miles out to sea north of Catalina Island.
14 hours later…10:30 am Tues…Still no word on the source or purpose of the mystery missile. Lots of speculation (Sizable missile with substantial fire power) but the Pentagon and Navy have no answers.

news-security/#slice-2


Are you kidding me…..So much for homeland security.

I want a cookie

update 3 hours later....U.S. sees no threat in mystery missile
Pentagon, NORAD say device wasn't theirs, but otherwise, officials say the are baffled.
Oh well that just gives me a warm fuzzy feeling. . emoticon

to hell with the cookie...I want brownies with ice cream

    The latest report is that nobody is claiming the missile as their own - but the government says there's no safety problem for us.

Do you think this is in any way related to the fact that the United Nations has created an official position whose role is to greet any visitors from outer space?

Did someone say brownies? ice cream?

Pole Dancing

Monday, November 08, 2010



THIS GIVES ME A WHOLE NEW MEANING TO POLE DANCING.

IT HAS ACTUALLY BECOME A RECOGNIZED FORM OF EXERCISE IN WHICH
PARTICIPANTS RECEIVE BOTH AN AEROBIC AND ANAEROBIC WORKOUT.
WHERE DO I SIGN UP emoticon

Hey...what are you laughing at. It could happen

I still remember Jamie Lee Curtis in 'TRUE LIES' doing her pseudo Pole Dance. the only move I've mastered is at :52 seconds

    I don't need to worry about it anymore, but I used to always take frozen entrees to work with me for simplicity's sake, then add a piece of fresh fruit. Other than being high in sodium, you can find some pretty good options like Smart Ones, Lean Cuisine, and Healthy Choice. But of course -- homemade is always so much better!

HEY....HE'S A CAT
YOU DON'T THINK HE PARTIES WHILE YOU'RE AWAY ?

UH OH....BUSTED ! ! !

I'm still amazed when someone tells me they don't think animals have intelligence or personality. Having owned a dog, a cat, a parrot, and a capuchin monkey...I know they each teach us how to be more human.

So here is something to make you smile...tell me this doesn't remind you of a kid playing with a parent.

I'm getting better and better with my soups and stews. I keep making vegetable based dishes flavored with a little chicken or meat, and plenty of beans. delicious. The added value is that they really satisfy me and keep my craving way down.

    My former cat threw lots of parties when I wasn't home. Like the one where he dragged the frozen chicken off the counter and he and the dog ate the entire thing. For some odd reason no one greeted us when we got home and didn't make eye contact and guts were very bloated.

Do Dogs go to Heaven?

Friday, November 05, 2010

two churches face each other across a busy street...


ALL DOGS GO TO HEAVEN


ONLY HUMANS GO TO HEAVEN...READ THE BIBLE


GOD LOVES ALL HIS CREATIONS...DOGS INCLUDED


DOGS DON'T HAVE SOULS...THIS IS NOT OPEN FOR DEBATE


CATHOLIC DOGS GO TO HEAVEN...
PRESBYTERIAN DOGS CAN TALK TO THEIR PASTOR


CONVERTING TO CATHOLOCISM DOES NOT MAGICALLY GRANT YOUR DOG A SOUL


FREE DOGS SOULS WITH CONVERSION


DOGS ARE ANIMALS...THERE AREN'T ANY ROCKS IN HEAVEN EITHER


ALL ROCKS GO TO HEAVEN

I would love to meet the priest at Our Lady of Martyrs.
He's my kind of people. emoticon emoticon emoticon
Love his sense of humor

UPDATE: Someone went thru the trouble of sending me a notice from snopes that this story never actually happened . The church billboards can be done with a photoshop type utility available on the web. But knowing how people can be...it is entirely possible for me to believe it could happen.

One of the ones in the post is design number eleven at the next link:
