Be advised PERSONAL RANT FOLLOWING:
People, if you don't want your babies...give them up for adoption. I don't really know if this mom really microwaved her 3-week old infant but the horrifying stories of what people do to their babies simply because they don't want them just infuriates me. It's a life...not an object to experiment with and kill. Growl. RANT OFFICIALLY OVER.

Apparently in Maine women are stepping up to the plate and bcoming sportpersons. (Huntresses). Anyway, I am pretty sure this will not be me. I do not have problem with others hunting, and even eating their loot, but I do not want to do it. I just cannot bring myself to kill another animal. I do, however, enjoy shooting bluerock and clay pigeons. Have you ever done that? It is so fun! You throw a disk out shoot it and watch it blow away into millions of pieces. And the best part? NO BLOOD ANYWHERE! The best thing that we ever did was shoot at fudge. Yes...fudge. I made a batch of fudge and must have done something wrong. It came out hard as a rock. We shot at it and the bee bee's just ricocheted off the fudge. That was awesome! Anyway, happy hunting to you.
Wow! I am sorry it has been so long since we have posted anything. Thanksgiving was busy and quite relaxing. We had all of Drew's siblings over and his parents and Grandma. We made a ham, a turkey, and all the trimmings. So, now we are officially into the Christmas season.

One last story of the day. The Lane family of New Jersey had an unexpected guest this last week. Apparantly a turkey did not take off very well from the ground and crashed into the second story window of their home. The article says the turkey had "relieved itself" all over the place and it was a real mess. Hmmm...I would probably relieve myself too if I were a turkey inside someone's home a week before thanksgiving. I bet he scared the poo out of himself too when he went right through a window!
The news is just full of interesting things today. This report is almost too bizarre for me. This woman wants to be compensated by her doctor for her unplanned pregnancy! What! How on earth is this situation the doctor's fault? What's more, the judge agreed and the doctor has to pay 18 years worth of child support at $769/month.
"Man Accidentally Shoots Himself in the Groin" NOW THAT'S A HEADLINE! When I logged into yahoo news this morning and saw that headline staring me down, I lauged hard. The first thought in my head is BWAAAAHAHAHA. Shortly after that I was thinking...how on earth does someone shoot THEMSELVES in the groin. I mean........really?
I love cheeseburgers. I mean, REALLY love cheeseburgers. If you ask anyone who knows me well they will tell you that a really messy cheeseburger is like my mecca for all foods. I try to limit my cheeseburger intake and I try to take into consideration that they are so completely unhealthy for me, but....I think it is interesting what the Spanish government is doing in Spain. Apparently they launched a campaign to combat obesity by encouraging limiting portions in restaurants. The government feels that a commercial for a Burger King XXL burger needs to be pulled off because of it's enormous fat and caloric intake. (971 calories to be exact) I guess that is an interesting approach. Don't you think that people will just buy more of the smaller burgers?

Okay, I have spent numerous hours with young children and have said a lot of "Dont put that (whatever) in your (whatever)." Usually this sentence is about putting something into your mouth. This guy must have never had anyone around to tell him not to put foreign objects in your body orafices. I would like to send a sign to him that says "Don't put lit firecrackers in your bum!"

As you know, yesterday was election day. In our state the mudslinging was ridiculous this year. Anyway, at my designated voting location, they gave me a sticker! Yes, you heard it right an actual sticker for my time. It felt like I was 5 and getting a sucker from the doctor after the shots I had to endure. I guess that was the payment for the 2 pages (both 2-sided) of ballot in this election. The funny thing was that Drew came home from his civic duty and...no sticker. I asked him where his sticker was and he told me they didn't give him one. Hmmmm...did just the women get stickers???? Did anyone else out there get a sticker?
How well do you know your logos? I, apparently, do not know them very well! At this site, you are asked to look at 6 different versions of 10 logos. There are subtle differences and...well...I scored 37%. I am pretty observant, but I guess not that observant! lol You give it a try.

Do you know anyone who looks like Kenny Rogers? This morning on the radio, I heard the annoucers talking about this website that is dedicated to men who look like Kenny Rogers. I thought, "Interesting." I checked it out and hahahaha...it has recipes, galleries, and more! I guess the Kenny Rogers look is a popular one!

A rancher/farmer in South Dakota had an unexpected visitor to his cows this last week. Apparently, a young bull moose decided to move in and stay for a few days. He didn't wan to leave and was, presumably, lonely. The cows just accepted him and went on their merry way of doing things. I think humans could learn a few lessons from this bunch of cows.
