    Amazing! I share Laura's sentiments about Mrs. Bush - she always supported her husband, no matter what! She is such a rarity in public figures.

    That is kind of ironic - from the top to flying with those on the bottom, yep, that's you. (Hey You disqualified me!!!)

    (if you say "No" to "Have you beaten your wife lately?" it makes it sound like you used to beat her. And you obviously can't say "Yes." So its supposed to be a lose-lose scenario as a yes or no question. Its a joke. No insolence intended.)

    it's an old joke, and sorry for not being clear, but the "insolence" was also intended as a joke, a reply in kind I guess, but not very clearly so apparently.

  • kerux
    No, I didn't disqualify you; I disqualified Josh! Or rather, I didn't disqualify Josh; it was just a joke, but he didn't know it, because he didn't know that I knew the joke about beating the wife. This is getting nonsensical.

    Ah, good, I was hoping you were already familiar with it ;)

    very exciting... how do you always get to see these VIP's? One time, shortly after we moved here, President Bush came here for the races, but they had any street even remotely near the one he was on blocked off! I couldn't have gotten close if I had wanted to!

  • snickers63
    Whew, what a relief that I was not disqualified!

    you owe an explanation about the "waving when she saw you"! Okay, you don't really OWE an explanation, but humor us anyway.

  • kerux
    Response to question and explanation owed to bro:No, didn't get to speak to her. She was in row 2, I was in row 4. She boarded right at the last and due to a bulkhead between 1st class and 2nd class (between rows 3 & 4), most on the plane were unaware she was there. I asked the flight attendant to pass her a note, just thanking her for being a classy first lady, but was told the crew had been instructed not to allow anything be given to her from the other passengers. With that, and the secret service guys, I thought best not to approach her! But when we arrived at the gate in Philly and we all got up to de-plane, she turned and looked back as she got up, I smiled and waved to her, and she returned the gesture. That's all.

    That is sooo neat!!

  • enyek
    Wow wow wow! You should have crumbled the note up and threw it over the seats to her - it was only 2 rows up!

  • enyek
    Hmmmmm.. do you think it could have led to some contacts though?
    by enyek at 05/08/09 12:48PM
  • aprilstarr
    Wow! How neat!! Too bad you couldn't pass the note, though I understand the precaution. Very nice that she waved back at you though. :)

    I thought spaghetti was a root like carrots. Are you sure this is not an Aprir fools gag?

    Shared spaghetti tonight with Julio and fam. He would have enjoyed this!!

  • kerux
    Shane has it right. This was an april fools joke by the BBC in 1957.
    by kerux at 04/03/09 2:32PM
  • shaneg
    You mean spaghetti is actually a root? Oh! You mean it was a joke.

    per below- can't tell for sure, but when I first saw it I took it for a Lada (russian).

    Funny! My dh on a flight into Huntsville, AL once told a flight attendant who had come into the cockpit (in answer to her question regarding all the "white" she was seeing in the fields) told her they were "grits plants" and it was almost time for the grits harvest. Well, upon her return to the cabin, she promptly made an announcement to the passengers (many of them natives of Huntsville) about how beautiful the grits plants were. (Just in case we have some non-Southerners reading, the fields, of course, were fields of cotton ready for picking.)

GM (Government Motors)

The Soviet block used to produce cars in government run factories. This is what we can expect as the government takes over our auto manufacturing, financing the companies, firing a CEO, passing judgment on business plans and production focus...

  • shaneg
    Funny!!! Right now anyways. If it come about it will be sad.

    Maybe we will drive more carefully if our cars do that.

    Thanks for letting me borrow your house/a bed/breakfast this past weekend. I missed seeing you guys, but I hope that you got everything and more done while you were in VA.

    I turned on the outside light Friday night for you... and then realized an hour into my drive back to NJ on Saturday that I forgot to turn it off. Oops! Sorry about that. :(

    Have a good week. :)

Obama's approval rating, Rasmussen Tracking Poll



  • daddio6
    Getting closer. Trending towards parity (between + and -)? Or could he end up like an upside down mortgage? And if so, will he be eligible for a bailout?
    by daddio6 at 03/16/09 9:33AM
  • merryrose
    ^ Can you use tax payers' money to buy more votes or higher approval ratings?
    by merryrose at 03/17/09 6:42AM
  • laurar209
    This is as far removed from Obama and taxes and anything political as anything can be, but it *is* pertinent:

    do you and/or Libby like brussel sprouts?
    (this is a serious question :)
