My FAVORITE bit is right at the end, when the dog behind the door puts his paw up on the wire like, “Wait! Aren’t you going to let us out, too?”

    Hey Chrissy! Looks like the auto post didn’t work, so I published this – I hope that’s okay! It looked like it was ready to go so if it wasn’t I’m so sorry! I saw that you had it scheduled to publish at 2am, but it didn’t for some reason. Huh.

      Thanks, Dee! I goofed up big on this one … published it yesterday when I made it, realized my oopsie, then tried to unpublished and schedule it. Clearly, WordPress is not bright enough to deal with my brain farts LOL.

    South Carolina legislators are making a stand against federal ban on incandescents!


    This could NEVER pass in New York but maybe New Jersey where we have relatives. I will NOT bring those CF bulbs into my house!


    • Amen to that, Chrissy! There will be big profits to be made in smuggling light bulbs if/when that ridiculous ban actually goes into effect.

      A couple of days ago I was attempting to change a burnt-out bulb in a table lamp in my living room. My son was sitting on the couch reading just a few feet away, and several cats were napping in the vicinity, when (you guessed it) that slippery little bulb just jumped out of my hand and hit the end table and shattered into a bazillion pieces. One cat opened his eyes and looked up at me reproachfully, then went back to sleep. My son looked up from his book long enough to ascertain what had happened, then went back to reading. I cleaned up the mess quickly, searched the area for shards of glass, then got a new bulb and put it in — all the while thanking God in heaven that it hadn’t been a curly-fry bulb, and that I didn’t have to evacuate the kid and cats and don a hazmat suit and open all the windows and go through the ridiculously complex ritual required to safely clean up a broken CFL … and then replace the couch, the carpeting, my clothes, etc., and haul the contaminated ones to the nearest hazardous waste disposal site.

    Get a load of this piece of … ahem.

    US farmers dodge the impacts of global warming — at least for now

    “Global warming is likely already taking a toll on world wheat and corn production, according to a new study led by Stanford University researchers. But the United States, Canada and northern Mexico have largely escaped the trend.”

    LIKELY? In other words, “We’re really REALLY sure global warming is doing bad things to wheat and corn production, even though we can’t find any evidence of it in North America.”
