A very sad day.....Goodbye Czarina
As anyone who has ever owned a pet knows, there comes that day when you must part. About a week ago our Wolf/Dog, Czarina became very ill and we immediately took her to the veterinarians office. I won't go into what was wrong with her but it was very serious, and after a week of administering 9 various medications to her several times daily, her condition did not improve and worsened, and her quality of life was non-existent.
When you own and love a faithful pet, watching them suffer is absolutely terrible, and so is the decision you must eventually make if you want the animal to stop their suffering. In my life, I have just about always owned a dog, and have had to endure having them put to sleep at least 6 times, and it DOES NOT get any easier. This morning at 9:00 AM, my wife and myself had to have her put down. Our only solace being that she suffers no more.
She had been a family member for almost 10 years, and even though she was registered hybrid Wolf-Dog, her disposition was very loving and faithful. We have 6 grandchildren and one great grandchild, and if she had been dangerous in any way, we would never have allowed her to be around our grand children, but she was a very loving companion and protective to all of them. She will be missed dearly by the entire extended family.
If'n Y'all have ever seen or been on a modern Aircraft Carrier you know how huge they are, and how high the flight deck is from the water-line. When one is bein tossed around like this, and the waves are breakin over the flight deck, you KNOW how rough the ocean is. This might also explain to Y'all why I joined the Submarine Service...we go under this kind of shit where its nice and calm.
Speakin of rough seas...HOW BAD IS THE ECONOMY??
The economy is so bad:
1. I went to buy a toaster oven and they gave me a bank.
2. I got a pre-declined credit card in the mail.
3. CEOs are now playing miniature golf.
4. Hotwheels and Matchbox cars are now trading higher than GM.
5. Obama met with small businesses to discuss the Stimulus Package: GE, Pfeizer and Citigroup.
6. McDonalds is selling the 1/4 ouncer.
7. People in Beverly Hills fired their nannies and learned their children's names.
8. The most highly-paid job is now jury duty.
9. People in Africa are donating money to Americans.
10. Mothers in Ethiopia are telling their kids, "Finish your plate. Do you know how many kids are starving in the U.S.?"
The photo below captures an unsettling trend that is beginning to affect the behavior of wildlife in the U.S.
Animals that were formerly self-sufficient are modifying their behavior to take advantage of what they expect to be a new set of societal norms in the next four to eight years. This black bear has ceased hunting and, instead, has begun to merely sit outside a U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service office, waiting to be fed and to have his winter den dug by government employees. In honor of what is believed to be the cause of this behavior, area residents are calling him "Bearack Obama."
A Catholic Heart Attack
A man suffered a serious heart attack and had open heart bypass surgery.
He awakened from the surgery to find himself in the care of nuns at a Catholic Hospital.
As he was recovering, a nun asked him questions regarding how he was going to pay for his treatment.
She asked if he had health insurance.
He replied, in a raspy voice, 'No health insurance.'
The nun asked if he had money in the bank.
He replied. 'No money in the bank.'
The nun asked, 'Do you have a relative who could help you?'
He said, 'I only have a spinster sister, who is a nun.'
The nun became agitated and announced loudly, 'Nuns are not spinsters!
Nuns are married to God.'
The patient replied, 'Send the bill to my brother-in-law.
Well Sir, t'day, my good friends John & "Buster" Yowans frum out Chanute, Kansas way, sent me this E-mail containin the following write-up regardin a toy that was sold for only about 1 year or so back in the early 1950's.
Now, what was so excitin to Cookie after gettin this mailin frum John was that after I had performed every experiment in all the Gilbert Chemistry Sets, I wanted this set so badly that I bugged my parents literally on a daily basis to get it fer Christmas. Even though I was only about 6 or 7 years old at the time, I had a very intense interest in Chemistry and Nuclear Power. Hmmm....maybe this explains why I eventually went on the "Nuke Boats" in the Navy.
Now Sir, I never did get it fer two reasons, one being that my hard wurkin folks couldn't afford such an expensive gift back in those days, and even though I managed to eventually save up the $50.00 by mowin lawns, shovelin driveways and sidewalks fer folks, and just about any other hard yard work that earned me a buck or two, they stopped sellin these kits, precisely because most folks couldn't afford to get them fer their kids. I cain't help but wonder how many kids would do that in t'days world??
Maybe one or two of Y'all out there remember these toys....
This was the most elaborate Atomic Energy educational set ever produced, but it was only only available from 1951 to 1952. Its relatively high price for the time ($50.00) and its sophistication were the explanation Gilbert gave for the set's short lifespan. Today, it is so highly prized by collectors that a complete set can go for more than 100 times the original price.
The set came with four types of uranium ore, a beta-alpha source (Pb-210), a pure beta source (Ru-106), a gamma source (Zn-65?), a spinthariscope, a cloud chamber with its own short-lived alpha source (Po-210), an electroscope, a geiger counter, a manual, a comic book (Dagwood Splits the Atom) and a government manual "Prospecting for Uranium."
Other Gilbert sets (e.g., the No. 11 Atomic Energy set) continued to carry the spinthariscope, the ore and the manual. In addition, the Geiger counter could be purchased separately.
Now Sir, after ya get done laff'n yur ass off at this completely inept criminal, ya gotta know two things.
First, this idiot was not only solidly convicted because of this video, BUT, after he later claimed that all the cuts, bumps, bruises and contusions all over his inebriated body were caused by...guess who...the cops, IAD (Internal Affairs Division) and the court dismissed all claims against the arresting officers and the jail deputies he accused.
Gotta thank me good bud, John Yowan from Chanute, Kansas, and "Chicago Charlie" fer sendin that one along to us....
Airport Security...here be a little sumthin fer both men and women folk....
...and speakin of Airline Security. Our Savior and Charismatic President has struck agin, and did it quietly as he usually does when he wants to slip somthin by us. Here's a re-post of a NewsMax article I just read. I'm so sick and tired of this guy and his no common sense liberal policies.... **sigh**
OBAMA TO LEAVE PILOTS UNARMED
Obama Effort to End Armed Pilots Program Is an Outrage!
A revelation by the Washington Times that President Barack Obama is trying to quietly end the armed pilot program, making air travel more vulnerable to terrorist attack, should outrage travelers, the Citizens Committee for the Right to Keep and Bear Arms said in a statement.
"The Washington Times nailed it," said CCRKBA Chairman Alan Gottlieb, who proposed arming pilots just hours after the Sept. 11, 2001 terrorist attacks and championed the armed pilot program. "What Obama is doing is risking public safety, as the newspaper put it, 'in the name of an anti-gun ideology'."
CCRKBA has brought pressure on this issue and the TSA is backing away and making denials about disarming pilots but according to an Airline Pilots Union statement the "Government representatives acknowledged that the program needs additional funding to achieve these goals."
We Just Do Not Believe Obama or His Administration!
We respect the airline pilots union who said they "met with TSA executives and were told in no uncertain terms that TSA embraces the FFDO program, that there are no plans to reduce or restrict its growth, and that in fact the agency fully intends to grow and expand the program."
But Barack Obama has already deliberately and repeatedly lied to America's 90 million gun owners across the country when he insisted that he would not try to take away anyone's firearms and said "I'm not going to take your guns away."… "Lawful gun owners have nothing to fear …I think people can take me at my word."
Even Eric Holder said Obama "knew he was lying to the nation…" about the ban on semi-automatic firearms Why should we believe that limited funding for the pilots program not already in the budget will be added.
"I wouldn't take Obama's word if he said it rains a lot in Seattle." Alan Gottlieb - Chairman CCRKBA
Select Here to Reject Gun Bans and Fax to All 100 Senators and All 435 House Representatives Why Does CCRKBA Need You To Pay To Send Faxes?
The cost associated with faxing is a donation that covers the timely coordinated delivery of faxes to Congress on key issues providing a fast and effective tool to Send emails, create faxes and send them directly to Senators and Congressmen. The cost also pays in part for all the overhead to run CCRKBA so we can be here TODAY and 100 YEARS from now to protect Second Amendment Rights.
CCRKBA is leading the fax attack on Congress. Effective YES but FREE NO! We have sent of over 400,000 faxes in mass faxing to Congress is very effective and works.
It costs us to provide tools to directly put massive numbers of faxes on the desks of Senators and Congressmen. We have received reports that the faxes actually effect the voting in Congress like the recent Federal attempt to restrict carrying a hand gun on Federal Land for protection. We have jammed the fax machines and they must weigh the faxes there are so many to count.
Paid faxing works as Congress can tell that you care enough about guns to spend your hard earned money to send them.

The Washington Times reported in its Tuesday edition that President Obama is "quietly ending the federal firearms program" by diverting some $2 million from the training program to hire "supervisory" staff, whose job, it appears, will be to harass armed pilots through unnecessary field inspections.
"How dare the president, or anybody in his administration, take measures to erode the safety of air travelers," Gottlieb questioned. "The armed pilot program provides a guaranteed level of security to the public. There may or may not be an air marshal aboard every airplane, but there is definitely a pilot in the cockpit.
"We trust commercial airline pilots with $500 million aircraft," he continued. "We can certainly trust them with $500 pistols to defend those planes, and the lives of their passengers.
"Certain individuals have never liked the armed pilot program," Gottlieb acknowledged. "These anti-gun, anti-self-defense bureaucrats seem more interested in their own power, and protecting their little empires, than they are in protecting the public. And now, Obama is catering to their anti-gun bigotry."

I couldn't get the links to work when I reported, so....
I'm just an old Vietnam era Disabled Veteran Seabee, (and an old "Diesel-Boat" Sub-Sailer ) who's just a killin time...till time kills me. After retiring from many years in Law Enforcement as a Detective Sergeant, I now spends most a m'time a cookin fer feller sportsmen(and m' Wife) & writin a cook'n column fer a Fish & Game Magazine. I Hunt & Fish and don't care much fer liberals or ACLUers. I live in a small northern NY town on Oneida Lake, and like it that way. I can be as cantankerous as a Grizzly Bear with a tooth ache, or as cuddly as a Teddy Bear...mostly the former...
