We Are Being Invaded

I guess I greatly admire this sort of activity, but fear for the worst. Interesting story on weapons that are used. Sounds like Canadian forests are really getting it!

If the weather and other circumstances permit, I will let you know how it goes for huckleberry hunting with a possible look at what I can find out about wineberries.

Men, relish this, Ladies, get mad!

then go to this.

“silver crime”

If you saw the Daily Show recently, you got some yucks about Senior Citizens on the attack. But maybe it ain't funny!

Barney gets Touchy

I think the Daily Show etc will be covering this little dust-up. Not exactly sure why Frank got so touchy, maybe because these CNBC folks seem to be showing a bias. Although I have my beefs about Frank, I found myself agreeing with him and then thinking, yep, he went off the rails.

I can tell you I pretty much reflexively vote for shareholder proposals when I see them, but don't get the feeling they go anywhere.

Art of a Killer

The guy who killed the guard at the Holocaust Museum was an artist, a painter. Website shows one picture.

I'm guessing non-smoker & vegetarian too ala Schicklgruber.

Ha! Back Off Carl-Bashers!!

Turns out Lard is making a comeback. So those who have called me a lard-monger need to give it a rest!

One thing though: Crisco now claims to be trans-fat free. From their FAQ section at their website:

Are all Crisco shortening products now trans fat free?

All Crisco shortening products now have 0g trans fat per serving for a more healthful option.

A phishing danger I was unaware of

Suggestion from yahoo, after warning that miscellaneous pop-ups should be viewed with great suspicion:

Do NOT click any button in these pop-ups,
such as a "Close" or "No" button, or the "Close" box that may appear in the upper-right corner of the pop-up. Doing this might install a virus or other malicious software on your computer. To safely close a pop-up ad, press Ctrl-W (if you're using a Windows computer) or Command-W (on a Mac computer).
