Friday Morning Flashbacks

4:30am...not the time to be conscious...nor the time to feeding a cat that doesn't understand it's too early to be meowing for food. Worse yet, he's my in-law's cat who has been allowed to speak freely. If he were mine, I would have "shoed" him multiple times before he ever thought free speech was allowed. Oh, don't even suggest a shoe or other non-lethal device to throw at him now. Living in a townhouse offers a strategic advantage to the animal - all he has to do is sit on the stairs and propel his annoying meow-venom until someone responds.

It's easier for me to awake these days with a web relaunch project, news HD conversion project, and way too many other projects. It's "The Great Push" that I anticipated when I got here.

Rainy morning drive...even at that hour, there's still plenty of obstacles - errr, people - on the road. Radio offered a strange journey down memory lane...first, Guns 'N Roses "Welcome to the Jungle" - a late '80s flashback that seemed appropriate enough a song for DC and that it was playing on DC101, the local rock station that sometimes stops my radio dial...
Then, a familiar tune - Blink 182 "I Miss You" - I first heard the tune here (http://www.angelfire.com/jazz/rebeccaglahntribute/rebeccamix.mp3).

Wow, it's been just over a year since Rebecca Glahn was murdered. I realized this last week and was pleased to know that Q107.5 in Memphis was doing a tribute. Having a friend murdered is a first for me.

Finally, for those in Jackson who went to a Jackson Bandit's hockey game...you likely heard the opening to "Intergalactic" from the Beastie Boys. Whoa, talk about a where-are-they-not-now moment. Of course, I never have heard the song after the "roboto"opening...yeah, there's no need to suffer that pain again.

I've loaded some more pics of "G" in the Photos/Georgia On My Mind folder. More to come. As always, let me know if you have trouble opening anything.

It was wonderful returning to Jackson briefly last week to see Kim and "G" - my baby girl keeps growing! Also, it was nice to visit JTV with my two girls and see, if only briefly, some great friends. It was Georgia's first visit and she was quite the attention-grabber.

No new news on the house...as with all things, there is a reason.

I Can Honestly Say Jon Is My Best Friend

At the beginning of this year, these were Kate Gosselin's words in an interview with Today's Christian Woman: "I can honestly say Jon is my best friend."

Kate also says, "When the babies were born, I was well aware that our marriage could crumble. It was close to doing so at times. But we survived that first year. And then the second one. And then each year after that. Even though the issues have changed, it's never gotten easier.
"But Jon and I are more determined than ever that we're in this together. We've told our kids many times that we're always going to be a family. There are no other options. Sure, Jon and I take our stress out on each other, and no, that's not always good or healthy. But we work hard as a team every day."

Why The Hate For Jon & Kate?

This is a bit odd for me to write a post about "Jon & Kate Plus Eight." The only reason I watch the show is if Kim has Netflixed a season (we don't get TLC) and I'm relaxing with her. Kim's a fan of it and has read Kate's book. But why this post?

This family lives in our neighbor-state Pennsylvania, Kim and I concluded that Jon's personality is very similar to mine, and I'm sick of all the trash about them on the web and in the blogosphere.


Die Rush Limbaugh!

On the Eve of New Year's Eve, Rush Limbaugh is rushed to a Hawaii hospital with chest pains. News reports mention his condition as "serious" but little information is available. Hours later, it's reported that he's "resting comfortably" at the hospital.

The hours in between paint a pathetic picture of our country:

New York Daily News described Limbaugh as a "radio loudmouth" and a "right-wing talk show host." The article also mentions that Rush's "nemesis" President Obama and "target of Limbaugh's bile" Nancy Pelosi were also vacationing in Hawaii this week.
