    Misc Defense $39,500

    Oh, my, there’s a lot hidden under that tag. And I note they don’t list chamber of commerce, AFP (Rove), or any of the Kochtopus.

    Boxturtle 9But it’s still pretty cool)

    I’m not at home, so I don’t have it installed yet. But could you echo what it says about Mike Turner (R-Oh)? I’m really curious.

    Boxturtle (Specifically wondering if it finds the dark money I know is there)

    Ya know, in a realistic world, the idea that we consider our supposed leaders the most expendable people around would be cause for new leadership.

    Boxturtle (instead, it is cause to make laws to prevent them from being expended)

    the loss of American support could prove extremely problematic.

    As if that would happen. No congresscritter will lose an election for being a mindless AIPAC spokesperson.

    CNN’s lead story yesterday was how many brave Americans were in Israel fighting with the IDF. The kids intentionally killed while playing on a beach story is already gone.

    Boxturtle (And Kerry had to walk back the one honest statement he’s made on this)

    Yup. I bought a set of Sealand coins at a show a few years back for next to nothing, which was significantly more than their worth at the time. :-) I’ve actually had strong offers for it since then. There is something about them that attracts collectors of the odd or unusual. I dunno why [...]

    One of my frustrations was when a UI person told me “Put something together and I’ll show you what I don’t like”. As a newbie programmer, I would do that and spend ENDLESS hours making tweaks. As a more experienced programmer, I hand a display sheet to the UI person and say “Show me what [...]

    It is working excellently well on my Iphone 5s. Do I have to pay you if I steal an image for wallpaper?

    Boxturtle (If yes, do you accept Sealand currency?)

    There’s a WORLD of different between a techie and a User Interface specialist. Just because I know HOW to produce a webpage does not mean I know how to make it an intuitive, easy to use web page. Boxturtle (I’m smart enough to not use the BLINK tag and to avoid comic sans font. That’s [...]

    The huskies fell in love with the kittens the first day we had them. This doesn’t mean they didn’t find them annoying. When annoyed by a kitten, until recently the dogs solution was “nosing”. They’d stick their nose under the kitten, flip their head, and send the kitten flying. Kittens are aware of that now [...]

    I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again: Ansel Adams would approve.

    And if I were to feed my dogs in accordance with their natures, their diet would be largely potato chips, newspaper, and unidentifiable insects.

    Boxturtle (So I make ‘em eat Iams even though insects are very nutritious)

    That’s actually annoying. It is decided that the mayor if the #3 unhappiest city is needed more in Afghanistan then in his city correcting that unhappiness. Bloody Brilliant!

    McBush has declared the execution “torture”. He is likely hoping that his words will take the place of actions and once this blows over we can get back to the business of killing in whatever manner convenient.

    Tomatoes are definitely in around here. Half dozen different varieties available, though I went right for the Big Boys. I grew up on ‘em and see no reason to change, even when the Italians tell me it’s the wrong kind for sauce.

    How could you be against the death penalty? Don’t you feel much safer when someone who is never less than 6 locked doors from freedom and is kept in chains when out of his cell is executed? Don’t you feel pride when a convict is killed horribly for a hideous crime he probably committed? Isn’t it a [...]

    Ditto here, sunshine and a really nice day ahead. Tomorrow is supposed to be nice as well. First peppers are in at the farmers market, so stuffed peppers with heirloom tomato sauce for dinner tonight. There was spinach, too, that I will stirfry as a side. Boxturtle (Then the family will adjourn to the back [...]

    Good Morning All! I’m getting that plugin. The idea behind it is genius! I’ll need to increase my buffer size to handle some members donor lists. Don’t count comcast out. They’ve been working on countering that idea for years and already have some sneaky stuff hidden in bills that have passed. Expect the city to [...]

    Side note: Remember last week when C-S (I think) noted the errors at the CDC and I pointed out that the errors were being referred to as Process Errors which normally means that somebody important whom the CDC wants to protect was implicated in the screwup. Today, the CDC lab director in charge of the error [...]

    I loved her tactic: You can either be embarrassed by beating up on a woman or you can be embarrassed by being beaten by woman. Your choice. Early equality lesson for Boxturtle: I was watching the girls softball team warm up. The pitcher was LETHAL and even with her softball pitch I think she could [...]

    He MAJOR failed. MSNBC better understand that the only reason their third rate product survives is because it’s looked upon as a liberal outlet. They’re going to lose their few regular customers by firing reporters for telling inconvenient truths.

    Boxturtle (See what just one bought and paid for network executive can do?)
