Army officer training school

Friday, August 03, 2012

In this particular branch of the Army's officer training school, the instructor was returning a test. The students identified their work by the last four digits of their Social Security number.

In the early hours of a morning, the instructor was calling the numbers. “Four-seven-seven-zero?” he asked.

“Here,” replied one half-awake lieutenant-to-be. Taking the paper, though, he realized he had mistakenly asked for the wrong paper.

“Seven-zero-seven-five?” asked the instructor.

“Here,” repeated the student, gearing for trouble.

“I thought you were four-seven-seven-zero, soldier,” spoke the teacher.

“That's right, sir,” answered our hero. “I have a nick-number.”

IT'S SO HOT...

Thursday, August 02, 2012

IT'S SO HOT in Texas.....the birds have to use potholders to pull the worms out of the ground.
.....the trees are whistling for the dogs.
.....the best parking place is determined by shade instead of distance
.....hot water comes from both taps.
.....you can make sun tea instantly.
.....you learn that a seat belt buckle makes a pretty good branding iron.
.....the temperature drops below 90 F and you feel a little chilly.
.....you discover that in July it only takes two fingers to steer your car (one on each hand).
.....you discover that you can get sunburned through your car window.
.....you actually burn your hand opening the car door.
.....you break into a sweat the instant you step outside at 5:30 A.M.
.....your biggest motorcycle wreck fear is, "What if I get knocked out and end up lying on the pavement and cook to death"?
.....you realize that asphalt has a liquid stage.
.....the potatoes cook underground, so all you have to do is pull one out and add butter.
.....the cows are giving evaporated milk.
.....farmers are feeding their chickens crushed ice to keep them from laying boiled eggs.


IT'S SO DRY in Texas that the Baptists are starting to baptize by sprinkling, the Methodists are using wet-wipes, the Presbyterians are giving rain checks, and the Catholics are praying for the wine to turn back into water!

    Chicago area has felt a lot like TX lately. In fact, we even had a few days where we switched weather entirely with It being hotter here up north. Lake Michigan is on average, 11 degrees warmer than normal and we are breaking records for plus 90 to 100 degree days.

I always said I couldn't live in the south but, the south has migrated north.

Dubious Bank Account Practices!

Tuesday, July 31, 2012

My friend has a bad habit of overdrawing her bank account. One day before we went shopping, I complained about my lack of funds and lamented, "Guess I'll use plastic."

Unconcerned, she whipped out her checkbook and said: "I'm using rubber."

    Ugh! No way I could do that.

I actually round up the amount of every check I write (if it's $23.15, I enter it as $24) as I enter it into my check register. After a few years, I have an over $450 buffer sitting in there.

    I'm not an American but I do follow international news and politics and I think President Obama has substance. Sometimes its quite sickening when you have someone trying to do right and everyone else just jumps all over the little 'mistakes/misunderstanding' and make a mountain of a mole hill. Thinking you can do a better job and actually doing it is a VAST difference.

It's also why I've stopped voting for Republicans in general. The obstructionism, the lies, the attacks, stepping on the poor to give to the rich, the outright racism.......they would rather take the country down than give President Obama a legislative victory.

That tells me all I need to know.

    I like your manifesto! I'm supporting him too. I think he is the best choice for uniting our country, and despite not being perfect, he is a lot better on the international stage than Romney. I'm afraid there will be WWIII if MR is president because he as much as encouraged Isreal to use nuclear weapons on Iran--not good policy!

    In case you can't read it:

Why I support Obama---

1. For 30 years I've heard politicians talking about health care reform, and he's the first one to do something about it. The Affordable Care Act removes restrictions on pre-existing conditions, makes health care more affordable for small businesses, raises the age at which children can be on their parents' policies, remopves lifetime caps, and more. With the possible exception of insurance execs, who would not want these changes?

2. He ended the war in Iraq and is drawing the war in Afghanistan to a close. Like he said he would.

3. He thinks women should have access to free preventative health care. Why is this still an issue?

4. He believes in equality for all people and signed the Lilly Ledbetter Fair Pay Act to help women get equal pay for equal work and the repeal of the military's "Don't Ask, Don't Tell" policy.

5. He is promoting and investing in clean energy jobs. Finally!

6. He supports education by giving more flexibility to No Child Left Behind (thank you!) and my making college aid more available.

7. He thinks millionaires and billionaires should pay their fair share of taxes like the rest of us. Really, this is a no brainer.

8. Despite inheriting one of the worst economic messes since the Great Depression, h addd 2.6 million private sector jobs to our economy, and indications are that the economy are slowly improving. To anyone who thinks it's been too slow - don't you know you can't turn the Titantic around in a day?

I voted for him before and I will vote for him again!

Romney's England Gaffe

Monday, July 30, 2012

COULDN'T RESIST ADDING THIS ONE!

Romney – a.k.a. America’s crown prince of running for president, really grabbed England by the crumpets when he said he found London’s preparations for the games 'disconcerting.' That is the same classic Romney charm he used to woo his wife; 'Roses are red, Violets are blue, There are a few things that are disconcerting about your hair.'

Stephen Colbert

    It sounds like Colbert has his priorities straight. I'm more interested in unimportant matters like the national debt, unemployment, a dilution of religious freedom, fast and furious, and politicians wasting our tax dollars. I guess I just don't understand what's important.

    It's far better than the opposition's bowing and making obeisance to opponents of our long standing moral values. We NEED a president who will call a spade a spade and not bow to anyone.

AND I agree that England, who can usually put up a grand show, did little to launch the Olympics this season--shame on them.

DON'T YOU KNOW WE ARE NOT SUPPOSED TO GET INTO POLITICS HERE ON SPARKS???
