Pushing back the frontiers of ignorance.............
The "Big Dig" in Boston was named for Tip O'Neil this week - and rightfully so. It was the most expensive public project in history. Billions of dollars in over-runs. A decade late in completion. A real scandal even in this day and age. Yep, just like Tip O'Neil ! Conceived in dishonesty, raised in scandal and graft, and buried, strictly for looks. And not one cent of his own money!
Mary's Marvelous Mutterings.....................
I have CDO. It's like Obsessive Compulsive Disorder, only in alphabetical order like it should be.
The secret of a ideal marriage is incompatibility. He has the income, she has the patability.
The trouble with a three-day weekend is that it turns Tuesday into Monday.
Do you know the three times that most people are in church? When they are hatched, matched, or dispatched.
I tried to take out a loan at the bank today and they pulled a real attitude with me. Apparently, they won't accept the voices in my head as references."

More Why, Why, Why...............................
Why do mothers always say that their child cannot play until their room is clean? What will the room look like after the child plays?
How come we as children will fight tooth and nail not to have a nap only to find ourselves as adults wishing with all of our hearts that we could?
Wouldn't it be nice to be able to forgive each other as quickly and effortlessly as children forgive each other?
Didn't the guy who laughs last had to have it explained to him?
Laws of life................................
Law of Dirty Rugs/Carpets: The chances of an open-faced jelly sandwich landing face down on a floor covering are directly correlated to the newness and cost of the carpet/rug.
Law of Location: No matter where you go, there you are.
Law of Logical Argument: Anything is possible if you don't know what you are talking about.
Well, that's it from deep in my underground bunker on the outskirts of Absurdia, the capitol city of People Republic of Absurdistan where we kill the un-born because our state legislature will not pass a law to protect them once they are born.
And On The Other Hand - Be kinder than necessary, for everyone you meet is fighting some kind of battle. . . .
