"Stones" - OK that sounds much more right :) Oh yeah, wouldn't they just love to saddle up the Cruise missiles :) I really don't know enough of the current indepth politics there but I do know Russia has a lot of support by ethnic Russions living in the Crimea. Another case of a country fractured by ethnicity and culture. It has been occupied and fought over during the past centuries with the Soviet Union the winner until their independence. Apparently today the Crimean legislators have voted to leave the Ukraine for Russia. Ukaine is saying - not! This is definitely turning into an internal struggle that we should not have any part of. Seems like the Crimea should put it to the vote of the people living there with international monitoring to make sure of a fair vote and let the chips fall where they may.
Well, guess have to wait and see if she tosses it back. Brier starts tonight right? Be safe out there - those curling pucks (what do you call them?) look heavy LOL Those are the ones I should be watching for sure. Wonder what their take is on the Ukraine mess. Hope we do not now beef up our Euro posts after finally getting mostly out of the Middle East. Bu sacntons? Putin will just go Phhhffft - a pox on your sanctions!
Hmm, a bit autobiographical? :) When did we grow whiskers? I wish I had time to watch some of thenews and other talk shows. I used to watch Rchel Maddow being the liberal gal I am but haven't watched her in a long time.
-O.O- Book Club Bulletin -O.O- JeffCat's Book Club introduces: Dear Aunt Tabby -O.O- Send your lolz / letters to our very own agony aunt (look in the comments of the invitation for some great oldies or examples by Furrgetmenot and Suzi_sMom) to the book club: http://cheezburger.com/8094664960
Ah the big curling thing. Should be fairly low key I hope. I just don't picture curlers or their fans being super rowdy but then mix alcahol with any sport and it an get interesting. Me too as I cry at the drop of a hat. Commercials can make me cry :) We do not watch that many dramas because of that and only pick a few but we both want to watch that one. There's enough real life drama in the world to fill an ocean of tears. The one I remember the most crying through it and for days afterwards was "Schindler's List."
LOL on the Ford Float! I like that song - got a great beat too. But didn't connect it with your LOL. Mostly the thought that you fearlessly posted the LOL :) I find rappers amazing in their total recall of very complex and lengthy lyrics. Some long (and likely boring) shifts coming up. You are still in transition I think. Like I said before, you had a lot of stuff go down in a short time. At least those loner guys are heroes :) Oh, I find the whole Ukraine thing very disturbing. We sometimes tend to forget that Russia, for all its capitalism driven eoconomy now, is still a very repressive police state with a huge Army and a dictator for life in Putin apparently. I really think it would not be wise for them to mess with the Ukraine in terms of world and Euro backlash. I hope it is all a lot of posturing (like we like to do with big joint war exercises with So Korea. It has been difficult for Russia to give up its buffer countries. They gave a huge aid package to the former Ukraine Pres to keep them in line however, they hadn't counted on the populace actually revolting.
Paid otime to read books. How can I get a job like that? ... Tom Clancy drops dead. Cause of death unknown. Michael Hastings killed in a suspicious car crash. Andrew Breitbart goes out for a late-night walk and mysteriously drops dead. His body is described as bright red. His coroner, Michael Cormier dies with a high concentration of arsenic in his system, on the day he is to deliver his findings on Breitbart's cause of death. Clancy, Hastings and Breitbart had been communicating for some time. They were rumored to have information that could seriously affect Obama's presidency. Too many coincidences makes for a stink. WHAT'S GOING ON?
