  1. My favorite espionage author died today. Bummer. SW1 is really sad. "The Hunt For Red October" was the 1st book of his I ever read. CIA Agent Jack Ryan was a fantastic character BTW. All Intelligence Agencies should lower their flags half mast today IMHO.

      Thanks my friends for chiming in on this topic. I appreciate it. True, I didn't know Mr. Clancy personally usually when a favorite musician of mine dies I play a medley of their best known songs. I can't really do that here. Options: Do musical scores from the blockbuster films or watch my favorite flicks based off his books. It helps me grieve or cope with the loss I guess.

  2. Today in my travels, this old cowpoke was assisted by 3 individuals named Dalton, Colt, & a very pretty woman named Cheyenne...I'm not sure what all the Western symbolism means exactly, but if I come across a guy named Dusty next who offers me a shot of whiskey & a horse does that indicate a "Happy Trails" ride into the sunset? I'm just curious...Thoughts?

      Nice to have you back mom terp. Yeah, the transition from day shifts to nights shifts & back again can throw anybody off their game, mess up their body clock, & make them wonder which end is up sometimes. Hang in there. I have nothing against horses or the people that ride them BTW. SW1 has a goofy personality & I joke around a lot; it's in my nature. That's who I am. :) Have a nice day...

      Thank you for your thoughtful words as well mom terp. I appreciate that. I knew you weren't being cruel my friend. I was just clarifying my statement & eliminating any ambiguity that's all. Yup, personal preferences sometimes take a backseat to paying the bills. I hope that you & your husband get some quality time together just to chill, decompress, & relax once in awhile though. :D

  3. A very well written blog divineprodigy! Running the ball & stopping your opponent from running does indeed win several games in this league & it does secure & solidify championships. Nice piece there.
  4. Last night, I was watching recorded episodes of my favorite late night comedian, Conan OBrian, on TBS & he always cracks me up. He will do a joke slamming Dominoes pizza or Corona beer & then find out they are a sponsor selling ads on his show. LOL! Then he scolds his producer Jeff Ross for not stopping him from telling the joke. HA! HA!

  5. I was watching my nephew Matthew yesterday. He comes into my room, steps on the bed, gets flat on his back, stares at the TV upside down & asks "SW1 why are we here? What's your favorite cookie? Oreos or Chips A Hoy? & What do you like better the cookie or the creamy center? HA! HA! It made me chuckle. Little ones have a great perspective on things IMHO...

      This reminds me of when my daughter was only 4. I was driving down the street and watching her in the mirror, in her own little world in the backseat. She was smiling and starring out the window. I asked her "What are you smiling about?"

      She answered ......."candy".

      How awesome is that? To be a child again. That simply thinking about candy could make them so happy.

  6. You know, considering that Rome has a new Pope Francis & the Vatican has their own bank, do cardinals, bishops, & nuns that work for the Roman Catholic Church get stylish new Pope checks now & free Communion wafers too? How bout 3 free confessional pardons too? Just Kidding! What NFL team does Francis favor anyway?

    1. HungarianColtsFan

      HungarianColtsFan

      I think Cardinals or Saints...

    2. southwest1

      southwest1

      Yes, I agree HCF. But, if you backed me into a corner & forced me to pick only 1 NFL team for Pope Francis to support, I'd go with the AZ Cardinals since the College Of Cardinals actually selects the new Pope.

    3. HungarianColtsFan

  7. A bank located in Cyprus on an island country in the Eastern Mediterranean Sea, east of Greece, south of Turkey, west of Syria, Lebanon, northwest of Israel and north of Egypt is seeking European Union bailout money despite alleged ties to the Russian Mob. I have never heard laundered money called "hot & dark money" before. Have you?

      Gramz always talks about the places these status updates often go. "Early withdrawal - I won't go there!!!!!!" "Two roads diverged in a wood, and I I took the one less traveled by, And that has made all the difference." --Robert Frost "The Road Not Taken." Sometimes 100GFB, I really wanna go off road away from the Interstate. HA! HA! But I digress... :) Good one my friend...

      Tide & laundered money eh? I'm detecting a whole line of TV Commercials catering to a small, but very wealthy population demographic Brent & MCF...Start showing these new ads on President's Day too just to see if the public follows Presidential Profile, Greenbacks angle too.

  8. This Conan OBrian joke made me laugh: "Sadly, Kiss Guitarist Ace Frehley is facing foreclosure on his house. He will only rock-n-roll half the night & party every other day." Apparently, he went to "Detroit Rock City" & told every woman there "I Was Made For Lovin' You"

  9. The 2013 Oscars were interesting...Argo won Best Picture, Jennifer Lawrence won Best Actress, & Quentin Tarantino won best Original Screenplay...Nice!!!

      I'm a huge "Les Mis" fan, and I "knew" that Anne Hathaway would win best supporting actress from the moment I saw the first trailer in early December. Unbelievable. Haven't actually seen any of the contending movies yet, but the Oscars (as always) help you focus and make a list. I'll take a top nomination as a recommendation over a reviewers comments any day.

      Personally, I thought Macfarlene did a fantastic job, and although there were a couple of awkward moments, the show flowed well and he was very funny. He should be brought back.

  10. The older I get, the more I think the phrase "based on a true story" means artistic license on steroids or accuracy almost entirely abandoned for movie sensationalism & pure entertainment alone...

    1. southwest1

      "classified, and so important to people. They should put a huge disclaimer up at the beginning and end." Good point MAC. Redaction brought to you by a black sharpie. HA! HA! For those who don't understand the joke, classified documents from the FBI, CIA, & NSA are often concealed from public view without the right level of security clearance. Any material released to the public deemed 'sensitive' is often blacked out line by line or paragraph by paragraph.

      We could go all over the board with this one...Even war movies....based on the Normandy invasion. Pops always said: "Not even close." He even waited to see Private Ryan and said the depiction of the war on Omaha Red made D-Day look like Walt Disney. Just tells us how bad it really was.

      "He even waited to see Private Ryan and said the depiction of the war on Omaha Red made D-Day look like Walt Disney. Just tells us how bad it really was."

Don't insult the memory of the veterans please, especially those men who never made it home. Thank you.

  11. Just once I wanna hear a SB winning Championship QB say in reference to this question: "Joe Flacco you just won the SB,what are gonna do now?" " I'm going to Universal Studios, Buckingham Palace, & Cairo Egypt. Anywhere but Disneyland that place blows & Mickey Mouse is a prima donna man." HA! HA! I love throwing a wrench in the works...

      I just would love to see ESPN sweat & feel uncomfortable since that company is owned by Walt Disney. I'd love giving off the wall answers to commonly anticipated TV & media reporter questions. No need to be harsh or mean just delightfully odd & unconventional. That's exactly how I would roll anyway.

  12. Earlier today, I was sent a new Digital Video Recorder from Dish TV since my old one died. UPS drops of the package, I put the old DVR in the box, place the free mailing label on it, & then I notice the label is a Fed EX label. Does that make any sense? UPS drops it off, but I must send the DVR back thru Fed EX?

    1. MAC

      MAC

      location than the new one was sent from, and Dish simply chose the cheapest route for each trip. (And HCF, it's free to SW, not to Dish. Nothing ships for free.)

    2. southwest1

      southwest1

      " it's free to SW, not to Dish. Nothing ships for free.) " True Mac. Just out of curiosity, I took the old DVR to a place for pickup without realizing that the location in question only picks up UPS packages. I had people at this location weigh the box just to see how much the postage would cost. $18.75. Yup, there's no such thing as a free lunch these days is there MAC. HA! HA!

    3. BrentMc11

      BrentMc11

      Could have to do with inbound rates vs. outbound rates. Mac makes a good point....returns usually go to a totally different location/facility. There are some other odd reasons such as rates. Even though they are using each other...sometime with as many shipments returned, the FedEx rate may actually be free.....amazing how that can happen with multiple shipments/rating.

  19. Okay, this is a pet peeve of mine especially around Christmas time. Buy $75 dollars worth of our merchandise & get a "free" $100 gift card...The word "free" means you are under no obligation to buy anything right? When will companies understand this factual reality? Sigh...

      Rebates are another rip off too. Send in a receipt/proof of purchase & then wait for an eternity to get a check etc. etc. Just take the discount off the top of the big ticket item okay. Again, not a real deal here or savings either in a timely & prompt fashion either.

    3. FireJimCaldwell

      FireJimCaldwell

      Staples seems to be the best with their rebates. The last two times I bought something that was supposed to have a 10dollar visa gift card attached to it, it arrived in about 10 days. Sure it would be easier just to knock the 10.00 off at the * and let Staples collect it, but I was able to use it elsewhere so that was a plus.

      Death is very expensive no doubt. Why does it seem more expensive to put you underground vs spread your "essence" AKA ashes over the top of the ground anyway? Hmmm...

  20. I just paid my car insurance online for this month. I have a question: How does an insurance company calculate the value of a pet anyway? Income potential/earning potential is out. Is it based on specific breeds & medical care as the dog or cat ages? Are reptiles excluded from insurance protection too? I ponder peculiar items like this a lot. It's how my mind is wired I guess...

      Cute SW. I love the idea of pets medical needs from an accident being insured, but am seriously turned off by the cynical "cost of adopting a new pet" coverage. Please. Do they cover "cost of adoption" of replacement children as well? Just rubs me the wrong way.

      " Do they cover "cost of adoption" of replacement children as well? Just rubs me the wrong way." No argument there MAC. It seems condescending & cruel to me too. Well said my friend! When I thought my calico cat named Gypsy had died in the 1984 tornado that destroyed our home, I would have been insulted by a check designed to buy a new cat myself outraged actually.

  22. Okay, this is a pet peeve of mine. How come when you are watching a TV Program they break for a commercial, come back on the air, just to say they will be right back? What is the point of this exactly? It's both funny & incredibly irritating at the same time...The older I get, the more foolish TV seems to get. Strange IMO...

    1. southwest1

      southwest1

      Yes Brent, that is extremely frustrating especially when you miss watching down & distance as a football fan. It's like watching a murder mystery on TV. They break to a commercial, come back, & then the end credits roll down the screen. Wait...What just happened man?! Huh? Who killed the billionaire in the study with crowbar?

    2. southwest1

      "I was just thinking the same thing while watching a show the other day! It's pretty annoying to me." I know exactly what you mean ColtsSouljah...Sigh...It's like when your download speed on your computer slows down & says "buffering"...You are stuck in limbo & there's nothing you can do but wait, and wait, and wait...and wait.
