Well, Brin is coming for another visit. About all that's left to do is get the recyclables to the center and pick up a couple things at the store.

And then, hilarity will ensue.


Hillary Clinton is at it again - calling for more taxes. This time she wants to have a clean-up tax, where companies pay to clean up toxic waste sites. Problem is, it would also affect companies that don't pollute.

She says "ordinary taxpayers should not pay" for the clean-up. Problem is, those companies will pass on the tax to the "ordinary taxpayers" WILL pay.

Oh, and she wants a $200M subsidy for professional child care providers. Where will this money come from? The taxpayers, of course...even the ones who don't have children and will NEVER have children. And what about those whose children no longer need day care, because they're grown?

UPDATE: Hillary also has another earmark she wants, to the tune of $350,000 of your tax money. See where it's going.


Today comes with the news of the passing of two women, both giants in their fields: actress Deborah Kerr and singer Teresa Brewer.

While I haven't seen any of Kerr's work, I do have Brewer's episode of The Muppet Show. I'll most likely get Brin to sit through it at some point on this visit.

Today's title is one of Brewer's signature songs. It's also known as "Put Another Nickel In The Nickelodeon".

Just so you know.

UPDATE: You know how these things always seem to come in threes? Well the third shoe has dropped in the form of Joey Bishop, who passed this morning at 89. He was the last of the Rat Pack, and a very funny guy.

My guess is that Frank, Sammy, Peter, and Dean are all saying, "NOW the party can start!"


Sorry for the short post. Time to get to the recycle center.

Be seeing you.
