12/24/09 – 12/31/09



The snow surprised us this morning. Even FjL was surprised when he woke up. After Ro made her snowman, we went back an hour later and there was a baby snowman next to it. Something weird going on in that yard….


I’m not an astrophysicist or anything like that, but, this idea that Russia wants to deflect an asteroid concerns me. If you deflect it, doesn’t the remaining orbits it makes change, making it more possible for it to hit something else, that then hits something else, and so on ? We ought to be thinking about ‘catching’ it and holding it some place ? Shit, tie it down to the moon.


Saw this posted on a news blog.

President Obama just completed the UNHOLY and ANTI-AMERICAN TRIFECTA:
1st president in 110 years to miss the Army-Navy Football Game.
1st president to not attend any Christmas religious observance.
1st president to stay on vacation after a terrorist attack.


TR sends us the funniest joke of 2009. And possibly the last one as well. Enjoy. You racist you !!!

Everyone is in a hurry to scream ‘racism’ these days!

‘In what aisle could I find the Polish sausage?’ The clerk looks at him and says, ‘Are you Polish?’

The guy (clearly offended) says, ‘Well, yes I am. But let me ask you something. If I had asked for Italian sausage, would you ask me if I was Italian?

Or if I had asked for German Bratwurst, would you ask me if I was German? Or if I asked for a kosher hot dog, would you ask me if I was Jewish?  Or if I had asked for a taco, would you ask if I was Mexican?’ ‘If I asked for some Irish whiskey, would you ask if I was Irish?’

The clerk says, ‘Well, no, I probably wouldn’t!’ With deep self-righteous indignation, the guy says, ‘Well then, why did you
ask me if I’m Polish because I asked for Polish sausage?’

The clerk replied, ‘Because you’re in Home Depot !


Regarding this van bomb scare. Here are pics provided by our roving photographer ScoobyFitz. How the heck did a van, with blacked out windows, no plates end up not being towed in front of the Times Square Tower building ? If someone stops for 3 seconds there’s a cop pushing them along. Sick shit. Disgraceful.


I’m just wondering to myself, there’s a bomb scare in Times Square and our man ScoobyFitz is in the area with other people, one of whom is clearly trying to hide their identity and I go, hmmm…..


Work at the new bocce ball courts is slow, but steady. The brickwork is going along nice.


The new doors were installed at the bank. They are now replacing the sidewalk stone, and buttoning things up. Our glass canopy will be worked on next.


I don’t want to come off as a heartless SOB, but I am done with that fat woman, who lost all her fingertips and toes to her addiction to cigarettes. Am I the only one asking who paid for all of these operations ? She says she had 8 already. What sort of health care does she have ? What incentive did she have to stop smoking after the first fingertip operation ? If she’s on Medicaid, then I’m fucking pissed off. She should be left to die and stop draining my pocket.



As the end of the year nears, I’m beginning to review my 2009 photos. Here’s a nice collage I put together to reflect on part of the experience known as 2009.



Happy Birthday to my momma. I Love You and we love you.


Frankie V and Rosanne were tossing the football yesterday. The kid’s pretty good.



We had a wonderful Christmas Eve dinner with Ro’s side of the family, and then Christmas day with mine. Food was great, and people had a great time. Thanks to our hosts, DA and AtA. Enjoy our Christmas 2009 pics.


Happy Birthday Sparky.


Merry Christmas everyone. May your day be merry and bright as you enjoy your families today.



AlT-L and the gurls came to the city the other day. It was good to see them all.


Also got to see Johnny5 at Bryant Park.


You can visit the NORAD Tracks Santa site to keep track of the latest sightings and locations of that jolly fat bastard as he makes his way to America.


Are HP computers racist ? I report, You decide.
