The rain finally started around 130pm yesterday, and continued off-and-on for most of the evening.

During a brief break in the precipitation, I got Brin over to the local Supercuts for a quick hair-trim and style. We then grabbed some dinner and headed home to watch Hell's Kitchen, Sober House, and the final episode of Dr. Syn.

We DID notice the irony of eating fast-food while watching a program about a world-class chef.


The non-partisan Congressional Budget Office says that the stimulus package will do more harm in the long run if it passes.

Will anyone listen to them?


There's been something of a to-do about President Obama working in the Oval Office without a jacket. Obama boosted the thermostat to be comfortable, and took off his jacket.

Fine. He can do that. It's HIS office, so he can set the thermostat wherever he wants.

However, former Chief Of Staff Andrew Card told Inside Edition that there should be a dress code for the Oval Office:

"There should be a dress code of respect," Card tells INSIDE EDITION. "I wish that he would wear a suit coat and tie."

Card is the first member of the Bush administration to bash Obama, and he's going after him for forgoing a coat and tie.

"The Oval Office symbolizes...the Constitution, the hopes and dreams, and I'm going to say democracy. And when you have a dress code in the Supreme Court and a dress code on the floor of the Senate, floor of the House, I think it's appropriate to have an expectation that there will be a dress code that respects the office of the President."

Card continued, "I don't criticize Obama for his appearance, I do expect him to send the message that people who are going to be in the Oval Office should treat the office with the respect that it has earned over history."

Well, gosh...maybe Card should have told his former boss the same thing.


What a perfect day to hold a global warming conference...when the temperature is at -6 degrees.


A winery in Tasmania is planning to market their wares in America...which is fine as long as they do it legally, right?

It would probably be a good idea if they change their label design.

I'm just sayin'.


The rain continues. We're talking about food and other errands.

On Saturday I go back in to work...and Walter.

Have a good weekend.

Be seeing you.
