CNN: When you read the script, were you at all concerned about the nature of the language?
Clint Eastwood: No, I wasn't. If you're going to learn something and progress in the movie as a character, you have to start as something else in order to learn tolerance. And your character obviously is never too old to learn that, so he has to be a certain way.
But I -- being politically incorrect -- I find [it] fascinating because I hate the so-called PC thing. I think that's one of the things that's damaging our generation at the present time. Everybody is taking themselves and everything so seriously. If they just relax a little more and take themselves and everything else a little less seriously, they'd have a lot more fun.
I could not agree more with that. People are getting way to wound up on the little things. Everything you say, do, or wear is going to bother someone. Get a life, live a little.

According to the Alaska Department of Fish and Game, while both male and female reindeer grow antlers in the summer each year, male reindeer drop their antlers at the beginning of winter, usually late November to mid-December. Female reindeer retain their antlers till after they give birth in the spring. Therefore, according to EVERY historical rendition depicting Santa's reindeer, EVERY single one of them, from Rudolph to Blitzen, had to be a girl. We should've known... ONLY women would be able to drag a fat-a$$ man in a red velvet suit all around the world in one night and not get lost.
This does not surprise me in the least.

Caylee Anthony, 2, has been missing since June in a case that has received national attention.
The announcement marks the end of a six-month search for the 2-year-old.
"It is with regret that I'm here to inform you that the skeletal remains found on December 1 are those of the missing toddler," Orange County Medical Examiner Dr. Jan Garavaglia said.
She said the cause of death was homicide, but she could not determine how Caylee was killed.
Casey Anthony, 22, faces charges including first-degree murder in the June disappearance of her daughter. Remains described as being those of a small child were found last week a half-mile from Casey Anthony's parents' home, in the area where a meter reader first directed police.
I know the mother was arrested but has yet to be convicted. The evidence hasn't been brought out yet, and everyone is presumed innocent, until proven otherwise. But when they do convict someone, I hope they have a very slow, very painful death. Whether it be by the government or other means. I don't believe in vigilante justice often, but when a child is involved, All Bets Are OFF.

Your result for Test Who You Are in the Steampunk Ether City of Salmagundi...
Arcanist-Major Edmund Ras (the Sorcerer)
37% Cerys, 74% Ras, 20% Bell, 28% Wilde, 57% LeClerc, 13% Kendrick and 8% Fuzzy!
You are Arcanist-Major Edmund Ras of the Praxian Alliance, assigned as liaison to the Legion of Peace. You are a scholar, a scientist, and a sorcerer, in a city that distrusts the first two and despises the third. Though you are kind-hearted and concerned about the betterment of others, the hostility you routinely encounter has left you jaded and sardonic. You have a sharp tongue and a very dark sense of humor, and you delight in mocking those with irrational fears and prejudices. Your outlook on life teeters between the optimistic and the resigned, and you still can’t decide if humanity is worth the trouble. Still, even if humanity is doomed to self-destruction you are willing to risk your life to give it just one more generation.

They are calling for a major snow storm starting sometime tomorrow into Tuesday, with accumulations heading towards the 8 to 10 inch mark. I just love having to be on the road at 4 a.m. after a big blow like that, because the plows usually haven't been out. It's a contest between me and Mother Nature to see who retains control of my jeep. So far I have been extremely fortunate in winning. But then I also only drive at a snail's pace. Don't want to give her any more advantages then she already has ;)
Living way out in the middle of nowhere, we might see a plow sometime on Thursday, by then most of the snow will be packed down and polished to a high glass shine. By then end of December our road should resemble Wyatt's hockey rink. Bring the skates boys, it's party time.

I am so ready for summer. The hotter the better. Not a good sign seeing as how winter hasn't even really started here yet.
(thinks warm thoughts, the kind that don't land you in jail :P )

As I was prepping and cooking for Thanksgiving, I found an unusual item in the garbage. At first I thought I was seeing things. Upon closer examination, I realized I really was seeing what I thought it was. There was a cat curled up, sound asleep, in there. I had been tossing things on top of him as I worked. Why he never woke up I have no idea. This is the same cat curled up with the dogs on the recliner in another picture.

You are walking around, or sitting, with a LOADED weapon. Please pay attention to where you are aiming. Don't make that spur of the moment, adrenaline rushed shot at that trophy buck. I have heard of no less than 3 hunting related accidents already, 2 of which, one member of the same hunting party shot another one. The third one was a self inflicted accident. (in my opinion stupidity)
There have also been reports of 2 bodies found by hunters. One was a badly decomposed female. The second one just a skeleton. Let's hope they find whoever these people belong to, and bring some closure to a couple families out there.
Make sure if you're hunting alone, someone knows where you are and when to expect you home.
Stay safe out there!
Recently I added Dennis DeYoung - The music of Styx, live with full orchestra. Let me tell you, if you are a fan of Styx, or that type of music, you NEED this collection. The first song I listened too from the set was Grand Illusion, it was absolutely fantastic! In my opinion, it blew away the original hands down. The other stand out for me was Show Me The Way, he sang it with no music what so ever. His voice was crisp and clear. Fabulous.

Yes, I took over a four dollar an hour pay cut at the new place. Yes, I lost 3 weeks of vacation. BUT, and this is a big one, I found a new job less then two months later. I am back up to two weeks vacation, and I have health insurance again. The ones getting laid off now are entering a job market that is way worse off then when I was looking. I feel absolutely terrible for those just now getting the ax, and I wish them all well in their search.

Soon we will be a$$ deep in the white chit here, and once again I will have to wrestle mother nature for the right to remain on the road for my 60 mile round trip to work.
I really think I may have been switched at birth, and somewhere down south there is someone who absolutely loves cold weather.

89-Year-Old Woman Accused Of Theft Over FootballBLUE ASH, Ohio -- An 89-year-old Ohio woman faces a charge of petty theft because neighborhood children said she refused to give back their football.
Edna Jester was placed under arrest last week and taken to the police station in Blue Ash.Police say there had been an ongoing dispute over the errant football and a child's parent called to report that Jester kept the ball after it landed in her yard again.
“I'm 89 years old and I want a little piece of mind,” Jester said. “This is my life here in this chair, looking out that door, and all I see is playing the ball down and all over and all over. If it doesn't come in my yard, OK, but if it comes in my yard, I'm going to get it. No trespassing.”
Blue Ash Police Capt. James Schaffer said Monday that police warned Jester twice and finally arrested her after she refused to accept a citation."She chose to take a stand," Schaffer said, saying she told police to handcuff her, but they wouldn't do that.He said Jester wasn't a troublemaker, but that police had been to the neighborhood several times to try to mediate similar disputes.
“The actual rule is if you take the property of another and convert it to your own use, it's theft,” Schaffer said. “She was told by the police two times, give the ball back or you face criminal charges, and she refused to do so.”
Jester must appear in mayor's court next month.“I'm not giving the ball up, no,” Jester said.
“That's the only protection I have. They know if it comes in my yard I'll get it, and that keeps them off of me a little.”The football, valued at $15, is being held for evidence, Schaffer said.
The potential maximum penalty for a petty theft conviction in Ohio is six months in jail and a fine of up to $1,000.Schaffer said he suspects the mayor or presiding magistrate will take into account her age and lack of criminal record when the case comes up.“We don't like arresting 89-year-old women,” Schaffer said. “We don't like going into neighborhood disputes like this, and taking them to the extreme, but some times you're backed into a corner.”
Maybe its just me, but it seems a little extreme, for her to be facing 6 months in jail, plus a fine, when the little brats were repeatedly caught trespassing.

Thanks, says the guy, "It's the cutting edge of technology. I can telepathically ask this watch anything I want to know, and it'll answer me, telepathically."
"Rubbish," says the girl.
"No, it's true," says that guy. "Look, tell you what, I'll prove it. I'll ask it if you've got any panties on."
The guy scrunches up his eyes for a moment, as if concentrating hard to talk to his watch, then opens them and says, "Nope, it says you haven't got any panties on."
"Well, it's wrong," says the girl, "I do have panties on."
"Damn," says the guy, slapping his watch, "it's an hour fast!"

Poison – Every Rose has It’s Thorn
in the dead of the night
Although we both lie close together
We feel miles apart inside
Was it something I said or something I did
Did the words not come out right
Though I tried not to hurt you
Though I tried
But I guess that's why they say
Every rose has its thorn
Just like every night has its dawn
Just like every cowboy sings his sad, sad song
Every rose has its thorn
Yeah it does
I listen to our favorite song
playing on the radio
Hear the DJ say loves a game of easy come and
But I wonder does he know
Has he ever felt like this
And I know that you'd be here somehow
If I could have let you know somehow
Though it's been a while now
I can still feel so much pain
Like a knife that cuts you the wound heals
but the scar, that scar remains
I know I could have saved a love that night
If I'd known what to say
Instead of makin' love
We both made our separate ways
But now I hear you found somebody new
and that I never meant that much to you
To hear that tears me up inside
And to see you cuts me like a knife

How much time off do you really need in a year?!
