Anyone have an ark handy?
This has just been one of those days - everything that could flood on me, did flood on me today, which is why I haven't been doing my average number of blogs around here. I'm taking a break right now to allow things to dry out at least a little (glub, glub), then I'll get back to work drying out the... Sign in to see full entry.

Interesting criminal stunts
Right now, I'm watching an American Justice episode about someone who used a rather unusual poison (thallium) to (ahem) "off" his neighbors. I had first read of this investigation in - of all places - Readers' Digest, many years ago. It took years of backbreaking investigation and undercover work to... Sign in to see full entry.

Remember the Ginsu knife infomercials?
You could even cut a tin can with one - but you wouldn't want to! So says Weird Al Yankovic in one of his famous parody songs. I was just wondering how many of you remember this and other famous products - like the Buttoneer or anything else (other than the rotisserie oven) made by Mr. Popeil. Or,...

Plastic surgery is going to cost you - plenty
Plastic surgery is one of the few specialties in which cash (well, actually a lump-sum payment in the form of a cashier's or personal check) is actually welcome. That's because insurance often does not pay for plastic surgery, in the belief that it's just something one does to oneself to look... Sign in to see full entry.

I'd originally seen this movie on pay-per-view. It stars Alec Baldwin as a corrupt Mafia henchman assigned to Demi Moore, a prospective juror who gets assigned to the trial of one of Baldwin's Mafioso supervisors. Baldwin has been given the task of tampering with Moore, who is believed to be the... Sign in to see full entry.

Good advice is free...
and it's generally worth the price. Just something I remember from an Allan Sherman song years ago - we used to have all his albums (and he made several of them). He's the guy that sang Hello Muddah Hello Fadduh (about a youngster who finds himself hating camp - until it stops raining and they start... Sign in to see full entry.

Bring back Emergency Vets!
Right now, I'm watching a special two-hour Emergency Vets episode. I'm becoming more nostalgic by the minute for what used to be one of my favorite shows on cable. It used to be on every night at 9 PM Central time, on Animal Planet. Frankly, with the amount of overt trauma they have on that show, it... Sign in to see full entry.

Well, there goes one hour of my time
Oh, well. I feel as if I just wasted one hour of my valuable time - time I could have spent wisely, doing what I really love, writing here and in other areas. I signed myself up for a course through WritersWeekly.com, in which I (and an unknown number of classmates) have chosen to write an... Sign in to see full entry.

The not-so-good old days
Whim got me to thinking with her post on the good old days. Quite frankly, I prefer nowadays, for the following reasons: 1. Modern medical care - more options are available in the doctor's office nowadays. 2. I don't have to be stuck getting along with my neighbors. I can get the same type of... Sign in to see full entry.

Doing my web surfing today, I came across something on - of all places - the One Minute Millionaire site. (I reviewed the book of the same name yesterday in this blog - look for the post, even if you have to flip through a couple of pages to do it.) It's called idea tithing - taking about ten...
