»I am still SO disgusted about this family having their dog shot at a highway stop by Tennessee State Troopers. I gave the troopers my "Dickhead" award Jan 5. That post can be found if you scroll down below. Also on CNN. I hope this story doesn't die until everyone else is as disgusted as I am and the troopers are held accountable for their fuck-up. Good Morning America and the Today Show had this family on today. [They live about 20 miles from me in Saluda, NC]

»The music industry STILL owes you $20! Every US resident who bought a CD in the US between 1995 and 2000 is entitled to up to $20 from the music cartel as part of a court-mandated settlement over the labels' illegal price-fixing, which is one way that the music industry has ripped off the public. All you need to do is sign up at this site, and the RIAA will mail you a check. If so many people sign up that the settlement ends up getting spread too thin, the RIAA will mail charitable organizations the checks instead. You can't lose! Unless you don't sign up.

»Anyone remember Captain Beefheart? They were a strange band in the seventies that were in the same humorous intellectual vein as Frank Zappa and the Mothers of Invention. A 1970 album, Trout Mask Replica, is a record that repeatedly makes it onto critics' lists under headings like "Most Important Recordings Ever Made" and "Albums That Make You a Music Loser If You Don't Own Them." He runs a few businesses now. Online is Clamazon, a Web site for rare and weird new and collectible music you can buy or sell if that's your thing.

»The Rolling Stones will be doing their first live concert event on HBO on Jan. 18 from Madison Square Garden. And let us see. This emailing list is good if you like all things Stones. Clothes, pics, obscure interviews, etc. These folks are serious Stones fans. They follow them to concerts and attend the after parties with Mick and Keith. And now there's a blog about inner Stones info called Under-Cover.

Just Blog It!
Shirl has written her perspective on the color "lilac". From lilac's point of view. Part of the weekly assignment from Wednesday Wonder, by Hestia. Kathryn has filled in the gap of other Wednesday memes that have dropped off the planet. Stop by and bring your thinking cap. Kane, in Hawaii, mentions that it's Aloha Friday today and has added some nice pics to his Visuals section. My other Hawaii pal, from Louisana, Ailina, sounds off on bad manners today. Jenny from Texas glad she's made it through a 5 day work week. Alexandra has a loving tribute to her Mother today. Maggie is having problems with noisy neighbors. Arghhh! Brenda is wondering about the connection between Turkey's reluctance to comply with the US on their airspace and their recent plane crashes. Rhonda is going in to work despite still feeling sick. Does everybody have that damn flu? (((Sending healing vibes to you.)))

Thanks so much for all the kind words and well wishes on my new home here. I'm very touched by your sentiments. Now, go out and have a BLAST today/tonight!



The Simpsons' Treehouse of Horror VIII


It wasn't long after 9/11, September 11, 2001, that I began this website. I felt compelled to connect with other people around the globe. I had recently heard about "weblogs" or "blogs" and I dove right into I searched for others to connect with online and I found Ageless. It led to meeting many great friends to discuss events of the day. From then on it snowballed. Most importantly we offered one another support and friendship across the globe; finding that we were just a few keystrokes away.
