The title is quite literal... I really stink right now.
Earlier this evening, I went outside to get something out of my SUV, and it was dark. That's fairly normal at night, so they say.
As I opened the rear hatch, I noticed something moving out of the corner of my eye, between the rear of the SUV and the corner of my house, just a couple of feet away. All I could see was a flash of white.
Then the smell hit... Ugh... I quickly figured out that what I'd seen was a skunk. It got me
Teenagers in Iran tortured and executed in Iran, for being gay.
May they rest in peace.
Let it not be forgotten that those two executed gay young men were not alone; there have been at least hundreds executed in Iran for homosexuality in recent years. There's a word for that, it's called genocide.
For anyone who doesn't know, Iran's president recently said that they don't have homosexuals in Iran. He and his ilk are trying to make that into a fact, one gallows at a time.
In my prior blog entry, I described some of the storm damage to my house. Well, the good news is that I found a roofing contractor willing and able (they have 4x4's) to drive out this far. The bad news is they have only one 4x4, a pickup, and so it's been one or two guys working on the roof.
Sadly, none of them fit the stereotype of hot young shirtless roofers. Oh well.
There has, however, been an unexpected fringe benefit; I have house guests! Yes indeed, unexpected v
In a normal year, Arizona's Monsoon season (summer thunderstorms) starts in mid-july, and ramps up by mid August, often resulting, here in the high mountians of northern Arizona, thunder daily, but rain once ever few days at most.
This year, a years-long drought has broken, and we've had rain daily, over a foot between mid_July and yesterday.
Yesterday, I had major damage to my house (wish I was joking on that). A thunderstorm hit, and in the mountains they can be very violent. This on
CONFIRMED: The President's National Security Advisor stole, and then destroyed, an unknown number of classified documents destined for the 9/11 commission BEFORE the commission had a chance to examine them in it's 9/11 investigation.
Shocked? You should be. But, hold off on the Bush Bashing for a minute, becuase the aforementioned President is Former President Clinton. The National Security Advisor is Sandy Berger.
Berger was given sole access for "vetting" top secret Clinton-era docu
I've often been told that "homosexuality is an abomination, because the Bible says so."
My first response to that is that no one has any business forcing their religion on anyone else A man by the name of Bin Laden is a prime example of those who think otherwise, as he, like some extremist Christians, want the USA to follow his version of religion.
Furthermore, I usually remind the person citing the "biblical homosexuality" issue that the word "homosexuality" cannot be in the bible, f
Yep, I've decided to take the plunge and start blogging. My plan is to post on a variety of things, prety much anything. For example, my first real blog post will be sort of political as it will be about Daylight Savings time.
So, welcome everyone (assuming that anyone but me ever comes here! ).
Now, on to my Rant of the Day: Daylight Savings Time!
I live in Arizona, and one of the things I love about Arizona is that we are not burdened by Daylight Savings Time. We don't have to ch
