The latest Mitt Romney side-step/misstep started less than 10 miles from my house during his Cincinnati visit.
I admit it: I found the Herman Cain ad with the smoker amusing, especially since it sparked many parodies.
Recently seeing Rep. Charlie Rangel (D-NY) reminds me of this question: Are the House Ethics Committee and Senate Ethics Committee oxymorons?
Congratulations Congress on reaching the single-digit approval level! That’s ok Senator McConnell (R-KY), just keep blaming President Obama. Oh wait … Ohio’s 9th Congressional District has the answer: Send Joe the Plumber to Congress! Oops, I meant Sam I am, but does he like green eggs and ham?
If I understood Speaker Boehner (R-OH) correctly, no agreement by the Super Committee is unacceptable and any increases in tax revenues is a nonstarter. Of course his answer to the “cake or ice cream” question is, I want the whole damn buffet and the ability to determine what’s on it.
By the way, I remind Speaker Boehner that it is Week 42 of the Boehner-led House without a jobs bill. To quote Speaker Boehner, “Where are the jobs?” Meanwhile, I’m getting tired of these reminders.

Thanks for the feedback this week on a possible new theme/layout/template for this blog. Time is tell what happens, meanwhile, it’s back to the original.
Hip, Hop – Hooray! A new annual rainfall record for Cincinnati!
I continue to maintain that the bias of the listener is a major (but not the only) contributor to media bias. FOX News is about as fair, balanced, and predictable as a fight between Popeye and Bluto. Nonetheless, see this article about FOX News by Bruce Bartlett. Then again, the comments following the article are not only interesting, and support my point.
I have not played night golf in over 10 years, but this past Tuesday was an interesting twist to an already difficult game. Trying to hit a ball without normal depth perception is an interesting challenge – let alone a ball that does not travel as far. Nonetheless, we had fun.
An Oregon kindergarten was using a pit bull to teach how to avoid dog bites. Hmmm…….
I do not actively look for artists, but sometimes I stumble across interesting treasures that continue to show the creative human ingenuity. See this work by Alex Queral. Thanks to Kay for the discovery. For those who like storm photos, click here.
It’s time for me to take a break from my daily routine here, just a break for 7-10 days. Although I am in a minor cyberfunk, nothing serious, a break is good – but it also means I could miss the debut of a long-awaited blog – simply one of those a person can look back and wonder, “I remember _ when _. I wonder if _ remembers me?”
Y’all come back now and enjoy this great commercial.
