      I am trying not to be fooled again but this time I am going with muskrat. I think I see his whirling skinny tail. And he has no tree limbs in his mouth.

Korea. I’m not saying the US is preparing a preemptive strike, but the heavy metal is out and being brandished an prepared for possible use though you wouldn’t really know it unless you pay attention to such things.

    There’s more, plenty more, but you get the idea. This is not normal fun and games with that puke nor the PRC. We just sent a lone destroyer near the Spratly’s which pissed the PRC off Royally since they have claimed that those oil rich little islands, plus some that they have actually built, are within their security zone.

    I would hope all of that would give even a madman some second thoughts.

    Well life is good and will continue to be as long as work does not call me. Pork chops that have been marinating are on the grill. Freshly picked Indiana sweet corn on the cob boiling along with large crap stuffed portabella much room caps in the oven. Early dinner since I tend to be called to go out on Sunday nights these days.
