I've been enjoying a little downtime, so I've got just a few goodies for you this week. Short, brief and to the point:
During Seattle's recent snowfall, the mayor decided that the city streets would NOT be salted because it would be bad for the environment. So, let me get this straight: you're afraid it's going to drain into the Puget Sound, a rather large body of salt water? The next time I think of spinning my wheels, I'll remember the mayor.
Maybe we should have tried pepper?
Illinois Governor Rod Blagojevich has appointed former Illinois Atty. Gen. Roland Burris to fill the U.S. Senate seat left vacant by Barack Obama. You know what this means: the check must have cleared.
Temperatures in parts of Alaska have dropped to 50-below zero….which is down there, but still above President Bush’s approval rating.
It’s so cold in Alaska, Governor Sarah Palin said she could see Russia from inside her house.
The Chinese Year of the Rat is almost over and later this month, we’ll start up the Year of the Ox. The tough thing, of course, is always trying to remember to write “Ox” on your checks instead of “Rat”.
I got a little behind during the holiday season this year, but I'm determined that this is going to be the week I get my Christmas cards out!
Here's hoping for an amazing 2009 for all of us!
After 2008, we could use it.
LAUGH A LITTLE, WOULD YA?
PS--Don't miss this week's E-Mail of the Week if you didn't get your Christmas card from Sarah Palin
