Laughed so hard I had tears in my eyes!

Those of you that come around here know that from time to time I take offense to the raccoons that populate my neighborhood and do my part to de-populate the masked criminals. So when I found this tale of backyard warfare, I just cracked right up! read it yourself, it's hilarious and a tremendous read.

I'm going to have to check out Kent thomas regularly now!

Is Maj. Frank Burns now serving in the Pentagon?

Because anyone that would claim that the killing of 13 soldiers and the injuring of dozens other at Ft. Hood in 2009 was related to "workplace violence" is a lily-livered, weak chinned, spineless, chicken shit pissant missing the intestinal fortitude to call islamic extremist violence what it really is. Words just fail me describing the revulsion I feel towards whoever decided this bit of political correctness should be ascribed to paper and to the senior leadership manager who approved this document.

Really, when a madman with an anti-American agenda that has been acknowledged was openly known and ignored opens fire on soldiers after shouting his praise to allah, that's enemy action, not workplace violence.

The Department of Defense needs to move the cowardly individual who wrote this document and their supervisor and show them the door- immediately! They'd leave with a reducton in rank before their departure if I was the Secretary of Defense!

Well isn't that a hoot?

So sitting down this evening I started reading through my blogroll and noticed that Tam had linked to my thoughts about celebrating J. Stevens' invention of the 22 Long Rifle cartridge. First, it's a surprise that such a celebrated blogger as Tam stumbled over to this humble blog and second, that little mention on her blog busted my stats average in a huge way! I went and checked and I'm up to 174 visits today compared to the usual average of about 17.

It doesn't take too much to really make my day and seeing my visit count spike due to a link by somebody I really like reading everyday does make my day. Even better, Tam's readers and commenters seem to be in favor of my idea of celerating Mr. Stevens' birthday every September with the purchase of more of his celebrated invention.

Thanks Tam!

Weather? Yeah we get a little of that here-

So the weather guessers predicted yesterday that we were going to get some high winds last night and today. That's not really so unusual for this time of year but what was unusual was the level and extent of the high winds. It has been blowing since about 3 AM and the damage in our communities is greater than anyone can remember seeing before.

There have been trucks tipped over on highways, roofs blown off, trees broken off or tipped over all up and down the Wasatch Front today. You can see the story and a huge album of submitted photos on KSL. Click through the pictures in the gallery, (there's 202 pictures there right now) to see what has happened.

At our house I had to put a hay bale on Harry's new cat house to keep it from scooting around the carport. I'm also pretty certain we are never going to see his food dish again!
