Cheney: indecent exposure

I really wanted to post volumes about our dear Vice President but the more I read the more depressed I feel so I've decided just to mention how indecent he is. That's the only word right now I can use. I'd rather be more eloquent but "motherfucker" keeps coming to mind so I'll stick with indecent. The definition of the word, "offensive to public moral values, immodest," seems to stick to him like glue so indecent is what I'll call him for now. Just read any news article about him for the last three days I think you'll agree he has exposed himself for what he really is, indecent. You can almost hear his teeth grinding as he back-peddled about the Murtha incident. Face it Dick, this is an immoral war you and the other henchmen dragged us into.

What I actually wanted this post to be about was being thankful. So what if we only get mushy this time of year and collectively voice our thanks; I'm thankful for being able to live in a country that allows me to voice my opinions about anything. I hope we'll be able to do it forever.

Ya gotta spend a grand to look grand

The granite came yesterday, much earlier than expected but we did not tell them no. The grief of working with plywood counter tops can only be measured in the number of splinters so I was more than thrilled to get the granite.

The kitchen isn't big but my plan was for more than enough counter space. Not that I have much out, I evaluate each item on it's "counter worthiness" before it finds a permanent home. When I cook I spread out and this will be a great kitchen to move around in. The big deep sink will hold all those pots, dishes and pans I like to dirty and the trash is close to the prep area.

The granite was a tight fit and needed some modification. I felt sorry for the installers because what they thought would be a quick job turned into six hours. I wasn't in labor that long though you thought they might be birthing something the way they grunted and groaned. This stuff is heavy, even the small pieces.

When they left I noticed a not-so-much-of-crack but a fissure. After a call to the salesman I was relieved to know this was no problem, happens from time to time and someone would be there to "heal" this fissure. I wasn't all that sure and I spent the rest of the evening going back to look at it. Nothing I could do, maybe I thought it would heal itself spontaneously.

They arrived at about 2:00 p.m., sanded, polished, filled, polished some more and in an hour they were gone. You can't see it and only I know it's there and now everyone that's reading my blog but I dare anyone to find it. Hey, that could be a party game for my open house. My big concern was what would it look like in ten years but everyone assured me the joints are stronger than the actual granite so nothing to worry about. Being a somewhat trusting soul I believe them. What else can I do.

I am thrilled, so far, with the granite and if anyone is looking to invest a bit in your kitchen, go for it, it does look grand.

Who's on Frist?

Majority Leader Bill Frist is more concerned with the security leak than he is with the secret prision. Hells bells, without the security leak, latin for someone with a conscience, we'd never know about this stuff. You think Frist would have said anything? No.

Also in this comedy skit we call politics, Pat Robertson is calling in the "wrath of God" for the poor folks in Pennsylvania. Not unlike when he warned Orlando with the same biblical threats when they flew rainbow flags in support of sexual diversity. Either God didn't care or he doesn't have a map because Orlando has pretty much been spared of any hurricane activity.

If God didn't strike that old fool dead for calling for the assassination of Venezuela's President for being a critic of Bush then he's surely not listening to Robertson, too bad the Christian Coalition does. Take a clue from your creater, don't listen to Pat Robertson.
