Juanny Cash

15 year-old boy sounds an awful lot like Johnny Cash. His name is Vince Mira.

Here he is on Good Morning America.

I don't know the lady's name interviewing him, but she screws up a few times. Also, I can't stand it when there's a lag in the sound. Drive's me nuts. Boy, I'm bitchy today.

Here's a link to a better quality video.


Never Mind

Thanks to Miss Cellania, I figured out that the problem was SiteMeter. I thought that's what it was, but wasn't for sure. I'll delete the code until they get it figured out.

Still Having Problems - Comments, Please

Can y'all open my blog in Internet Explorer? I don't know if y'all read this in a RSS reader or on Firefox or IE. But I still can't open it in IE. I used Firefox for years until I had a problem and then I started using IE. Not having a problem in Firefox. But every time I try to open it in IE, it says Cannot open it - operation aborted.

If you have the time, could you let me know if you're having any problems?

I don't know what's going on, but Internet Explorer won't let me open my blog. Hopefully it will work itself out because I don't have a clue.

** Update ** Copper Theft Suspect Rescued From Utility Pole

Who in their right mind does crap like this? What the hell was going through this guy's mind? I need me some serious crack, so I'm just gonna shimmy up this pole, cut a few wires, snip, snip, nobody will see me because I am invisible, wrap the lines around my shoulders and then gently climb down the pole and go sell the copper. Oh, whoops. I thought if I was invisible I wouldn't get jolted with 7,620 volts of electricity.

This guy had to be peeled or cut way because he had adhered to the metal. I wonder how much burnt skin is going for these days?

**Now I feel like crap for making fun of this whole ordeal. He didn't make it. Here's a link to a video showing the firemen taking him down off the pole.**

I know it's bad luck for a black cat to cross your path. That being said, what good could come out of the scenario below?

A black cat in an empty Bud Light Lime box next to a Sesame Street coloring book.

Oh, the pain, the horrors. Please don't turn me into the authorities.

WD-40...Who Knew?

All you need to know about WD-40 and more!!

A guy bought a new pickup, and got up very early one morning and saw that someone had spray painted red all around the sides of his beige truck. He was very upset and was trying to figure out what to do, probably nothing until Monday morning since nothing was open. A neighbor came out and told him to get his WD-40 and clean it off. It removed the unwanted paint beautifully and did not harm his paint job that was on the truck. I'm impressed! WD-40 who knew?

Water Displacement #40. The product began from a search for a rust
preventative solvent and degreaser to protect missile parts. WD-40 was created in 1953 by three technicians at the San Diego Rocket Chemical Company. Its name comes from the project that was to find a water displacement compound. They were successful with the fortieth formulation, thus WD-40. The Corvair Company bought it in bulk to protect their atlas missile parts.

Ken East (one of the original founders) says there is nothing in WD-40 that would hurt you.

When you read the 'shower door' part, try it. It's the first thing that has ever cleaned that spotty shower door. If yours is plastic, it works just as well as glass. It's a miracle! Then try it on your stovetop... Voila! It's now shinier than it's ever been. You'll be amazed.

43) If you sprayed WD-40 on the distributor cap, it would displace the moisture and allow the car to start. Boat owners take note!!!
44) Keep a can of WD-40 in the kitchen, it is good for oven burns or any other type of burn. It takes the
burned feeling away and heals with NO scarring.

** Update ** Baby Jackson Is On His Way

I'm so excited. My niece (who lives in Lubbock) called me this morning at 8 to tell me her water broke at 3:00 this morning. She wasn't due until August 12th. The last update I got about 10 minutes ago, she was dilated to a six. I wish I could be there. I can't believe my sister is going to be a grandma. Everyone is so excited and can't wait to meet the little guy.

** He's here and I hear he's precious. 8 lbs., 20.5" long. She wound up having to have a c-section but mama and baby are doing fine.**

White Trash Mom Handbook

My buddies over at White Trash Mom - okay, okay, I call them my buddies even though I've never laid eyes on either one of them. They're buddies in spirit because they crack me up.

They have a new book coming out next week called the White Trash Mom Handbook.

About the book:
Taking advice from a book with "white trash" in the title is usually not a good idea. But new book "The White Trash Mom Handbook" turns conventional wisdom upside down. Far from trashy, "The White Trash Mom Handbook" has fans from Silicon Valley to Washington D.C. to Hollywood. The book gives irreverent but wise advice for parents of school age children.

Go, go, go buy this book here. Tell them Shelley from Shelley's Snippets sent you. That won't get you crap but it will make me feel special!

Baby Dolls versus Scary Ass Monkey Children

I just read this post over on Ohdeedoh. Let's face it, I didn't read the whole post, I just skimmed it. I had posted about these baby dolls before because they basically scare the bejeezus out of me. Here's a pic of one of them:

Anyway, I remember watching a TV show a few weeks ago and I can't remember the name of it or what channel it was on - but it definitely wasn't on Noggin - wow, I was actually watching a TV show that wasn't on Noggin - can I get a hell, yeah?

Anyway, where was I? Oh, yeah, there was a show about this couple who didn't have children and they didn't want to adopt a child so instead they got a monkey and they ripped all its teeth out and dressed it in baby clothes and they take it to the park and shit.

They should have bought one of these baby dolls - although the reaction at the park would be a lot less dramatic. But the positive side is people might not think you're as looney as you really are - and there would be a lot less flinging of the monkey poop.

Gitcha Momma

A redneck family from the hills of Arkansas was visiting the city and they were in a mall for the first time in their lives.

The father and son were strolling around while the wife shopped.

They were amazed by almost everything they saw, but especially by two shiny, silver walls that could move apart and then slide back together again.

The boy asked, 'Paw, what's at?'

The father (never having seen an elevator) responded, 'Son, I dunno. I ain't never seen anything like that in my entire life, I ain't got no idea'r what it is.'

While the boy and his father were watching with amazement, a fat old lady in a wheel chair rolled up to the moving walls and pressed a button.

The walls opened and the lady rolled between them into a small room.

The walls closed and the boy and his father watched the small circular number above the walls light up sequentially.

They continued to watch until it reached the last number and then the numbers began to light in the reverse order. Then the walls opened up again and a gorgeous, voluptuous 24 year-old blonde woman stepped out.

The father, not taking his eyes off the young woman, said quietly to his son, 'Boy.................go gitcha momma...............'

Thanks, Tim

Shorty Is Potty-Trained

I'm so excited! Shorty is potty-trained. I was kind of waiting around on getting the Boon Potty Bench from DadLabs thinking that was when I would really get after potty training Shorty. Well, since it has been two months since I won the potty bench and I still haven't gotten it, I just gave up on that. I'm so glad I did.
Hip, hip, hooray for Shorty!
