My son Joe turns 23 years old today. Simply saying we’re proud of him isn’t enough. A newly minted NYPD Police Officer, he makes his family proud each and every day. He has compassion, honor, modesty, energy, hope and willingness to serve. An all around good man, who has strong friendships, a healthy love life and a wonderful girlfriend. However, the most significant reason for his personality and well being is the bond he maintains with his 2 brothers and mother. When one things of the value of strong family bonds, his relationship with mom and bros are at the core of his success. I Love You Joe, we love you Joe, Happy Birthday !!!

The USS New York gets commissioned today in New York City. It’s a time to reflect upon the many sacrifices our young mean and women who have fallen in defense of our liberties.

One such hero is 1st Lt. Ronald W. Winchester. Please visit his memorial page if you have some time today.

Happy Birthday to my beautiful niece GAs puppies. They’re nine today and are still as cute as the day they came home.

Someone let their kid play hooky today so they can go to the Yankee ticker tape parade. I ain’t complaining, they brought me back a great 2009 World Series hat. Thanks guys, your secret is safe with me.

Classic Pins has some nice looking pins to mark the NY Yankees 27th World Series win. Good prices too.

Anyone surprised that the Fort Hood gunmen was a religion of peacenik ? But, shush, don’t mention all the other recent ‘events’ perpetrated by other religion of peaceniks. It’s only OK to piss on Jesus, or destroy Christian symbols in movies. Perhaps the Christians should follow the lead of the religion of peaceniks. Threaten violence if they are insulted, and issue ‘curses’ on the infidels. God is Great !!!

Happy Anniversary to Boom Boom and the missus. 15 years of bliss, and still going strong. God Bless !!!

Congratulations to the New York Yankees on winning the World Series for the 27th time. I don’t watch the games all year, but enjoy the playoffs and series games, when the Yank are there. It was nice to see them win in the new stadium and continue the tradition in a new home. Sorry Scotty …

This week began our 2010 health benefits open enrollment period at work. We were warned about significant increases and cuts in benefits, and they ain’t kidding. So far, my costs for the same coverage jumped by 121%. That’s right, doubled for one year period. They added a deductible, co-insurance, and out of pocket maximums. Shame on you all. Mind you, we haven’t had a pay increase in over 3 years, so with everything else going up around us, how is this supposed to work for us ?

Here’s a piece from Joseph Farah that basically states how the planned socialist leaning Obamacare is worse than terrorism.

bullet

And watch the report that got good ole John fired from 20/20. About Obama’s anti-American ‘health care plan’

bullet

Here’s a good article by John Stossel, who gives us the truth about journalists’ bias. The hypocrisy of these people is amazing, they have no shame or sense of honor or dignity. And it ain’t just the journalists, you know who you are …

Here’s an interesting bit of news coming out of Iran. Iran opposition to apologize to US for embassy siege.

PPOJaL and his wicked nurse KP visited the Top of the Rock today and took this stunning pic at dusk.

From TR, we have an international news item.

Yesterday Mexico celebrated the “Day of the Dead”, where people believe
the dead rise and again walk the earth. Or, as the Committee to Re-Elect
Barack Obama call it, “Voter Registration Day.”

Oops, gets even better for Republicans, or is that worser for Socialists ? Congratulations Mayor Mike !!!

bullet

Big election news. Looks like Republicans won governor in both Virginia and New Jersey. The 2 states where Barry made several visits each, and yucked it up with his fellow Maoists. Hmmm…. A vast right wing conspiracy perhaps ?

I almost blew the house up last night. Wifey asks me to roll over  the BBQ, so I did and even started it for her. Went inside, we both got caught up in USS New York coverage on the news, I tell her I smell something burning, she asks if I started the BBQ and boom, we got a huge blaze in the yard. And the lesson learned ? Don’t bother helping the wife. She’s better off without my help.

bullet

Be sure you get out and vote today. I was actually going to skip it. Came home, got on the couch, and the phone rings. It’s Mike Bloomberg telling me he knows I didn’t vote and asked me to go vote, so I did.

bullet

My AJ sends this in, and it’s quite funny. Heck, it’s election day, so check out Rowan Atkinson’s sketch about the Devil Welcoming People to Hell

bullet

My honey snapped this pic and me and LF hanging outside. LF just made 29 years at the Bank and is one of our senior leaders on our team and a close friend of mine.

This lady hawking AM New York newspapers outside the 5th ave subway station sure looks familiar…

Rosanne and I got to see the USS New York come home to NYC today. What an experience. It was great to see that ship come to our city. Rosanne also saw it dock next to the Intrepid and got some additional great shots of her. With some luck, we may even get tix to her commissioning on 11/7.

Here are a few videos of the USS New York, as it entered New York harbor this morning for the first time.
