I got my NYC notice of property value the other day. How come all mortgages are failing, house values are dropping, and don’t equal loaned principle, but our house INCREASED in value ??? I guess the city can collect more tax from an increase in the value of a home, versus a decreased value…

Try this out at home yourself. See if u can land a plane in the Hudson river

This is from LF, and is one of the funniest videos I have ever watched. It’s probably all over the news by now. 2 New Zealand prisoners who escape and run into a pole while still handcuffed. F@!%k#ng Hilarious … Enjoy

Something to ponder –

I’M CONFUSED…………………………….

How can 2 million people get into Washington DC in sub zero temps in 1 day when 200,000
couldn’t get out of New Orleans at 85 degrees with four days notice ?

Roving Reporter came across this in her travels. There’s no one as Irish as Barack O’Bama – by the Corrigan Brothers

bullet

Here’s a good article by Walter Williams that tries to lay out the risks with the stimulus plan. There is no Santa Claus.

I came across this gaggle of canadian geese by Shea Stadium. I immediately thought about Flight 1549, and I have to tell you, these geese ain’t so tough when a 3,000 pound Camry is smacking them around. Hey Sully, I’m reporting a multiple bird strike…. That’s for you dude ….

A Happy Birthday shout out to the net’s latest blogger, EP. and our retired Navy friend JgA. Happy Birthday guys.

It’s a good thing it wasn’t George Bush who mistook a window for a door at the White House. Barry did, and no one noticed. Hmmm. Where’s Jon Stewart when you need a chuckle ?

bullet

Why is everyone up in arms over Citicorp buying a $50 million dollar plane ? Everyone should we jumping up and down over spending $400 million dollars for naming rights to the Mets new stadium…. Save the $400mm, rename it CitiZens Field, and let them keep the jet as a consolation prize. My we we save the taxpayers $350mm.

SAY had his beautiful young son CAY at work yesterday. Boy has he grown. He’s also quite happy for a kid who don’t sleep.

We did some cleanup at work. This room hasn’t been this empty since we built it over 16 years ago. Here’s a few of the boys as well.

This comes to us by way of AT. Who better to receive inspiration from than this woman, who contributed greatly to both people and process wherever she be. A truly amazing video. Are you going to finish strong ?

I’m a believer that our future energy needs lie in our making efficient use of available energy producing sources that are earth natural. Here’s a gadget called the wavereaper. I believe that something even simpler, and potentially ‘perpetual’ is available quickly, cheaply and effective today. I believe what the Romans and Persians developed centuries ago would work quite well. It involved water and a wheel, and once it started, it went on indefinitely via self-propulsion.

We had our Annual RNB Friends Holiday Lunch 2009 today. It was great to see everyone again. We once all worked very closely, and today we look forward to seeing one another at least once each year. I think it is a great tradition, and we all enjoyed seeing one another. Have a great year everyone, and see you all soon. Here are the RNB Friends Holiday Lunch 2009 pics @Flickr

Here is one wild story. You read it and judge for yourself. A bizarre ‘creature’ in some guys spine.

TR came across the FAA photo of what really took down flight 1594.

This comes by way of newly-married ALTL. Good to see you are still around. A cute image from the local Walmart. How come these women never visit when I’m there ???

From our own GrumpyVP, a glimpse into my Christmas with my wifes family. Step into Christmas with DA. Hey, remember one thing, I MARRIED into this….

Here’s an interesting story. Will Barry, Joe and Rahm take pay cuts too, and lead by example ? One wonders, doesn’t one ?

Checkout the inauguration crowd from space.

Well so much for Rev. Lowery’s prayer for yellow to be mellow….

Here’s a story from a Palestinian Doctor at the Gaza hospital.

Seems our Al Qaeda friends have been busy cooking up nasty surprises for us. On the plus side, at least 40 more are dead and swimming in the river of honey, with their ugly virgins.

And here’s an example of the coming Obamanomics. Sure sounds fair to me, how about you ? Wake up WORKING people. We shouldn’t be calling ourselves Republicans or Democrats. How about we now call ourselves Earners and non-Earners. I am sure us Earners can figure out a truly ‘fair’ way to help our fellow American non-Earners, without it raping the Earners. Where I come from, a ‘long-term unemployed‘ person is a bum. Charlie Rangel is crazy.

A top economic adviser to President Obama has told a congressional panel the billions of dollars in the proposed economic stimulus plan should be allocated with social issues in mind, to make sure the money doesn’t go to just “white male construction workers” or the highly skilled.

Check out Langans on St. Patrick’s day. I hear there may be some local personalities (in the media and law enforcement fields) And a well known ScoobyDoobyDooo is a patron too….

Good luck to our new President. God knows he will need it, and God Bless You President Bush for your service to our country.

We had a pretty snowfall today. Rosanne even made a snowman.

We went to the wedding of my boy Johnny 5 and DD. DD persevered and finally hooked the boy after about 14 years trying. Congratulations guys, DD looked beautiful and Johnny 5 looked debonair. Now make some babies…. Here are John & Danielle Cantone wedding @Flickr and my standard pics of John & Danielle Cantone wedding.

An ex-RNBer stopped by the other day. It was great to see RH, and I even showed him we still have some of his ‘things’ around. Stay in touch my friend. Some may recognize him as their boss at NB.

Roving Reporter sends in a funny. Enjoy.

The Geography Of A Woman…

Between 18 and 22, a woman is like Africa, half discovered, half wild, fertile and naturally beautiful
Between 23 and 30, a woman is like Europe, well developed and open to trade, especially for someone with cash.
Between 31 and 35, a woman is like Spain, very hot, relaxed and convinced of her own beauty.
Between 36 and 40, a woman is like Greece, gently aging but still a warm and desirable place to visit.
Between 41 and 50, a woman is like Great Britain, with a glorious and all conquering past.
Between 51 and 60, a woman is like Israel, has been through war and doesn’t make th e same mistakes twice, takes care of business.
Between 61 and 70, a woman is like Canada, self-preserving but open to meeting new people.
After 70, she becomes Tibet, wildly beautiful, with a mysterious past and the wisdom of the ages, only those with an adventurous spirit and a thirst for spiritual knowledge visit there.

The Geography Of A Man…

Between 1 and 90, a man is like Iran, ruled by nuts.

Here’s some big talk from the little man that runs Iran :

“…The new US administration has made some comments about changing its stance on Palestine. These changes had better be to condemn the Zionist regime not supporting it,” he added….”

He directed these comments to our new President Barack Obama. He best be careful how he talks to us, especially how he talks to our President.
