Rowan Atkinson — Invisible Drum Kit.
What’s on your mind?
Romney is committing suicide with his selection of Paul Ryan as VP. Can you imagine if his budget be comes LAW?? There will be armed insurrection in the whole country!
hey teddy — how ya doing tonight? you sure got that rmoney announcement up fast — your fingers musta been flying!
hey nahant — how’s deadwood city tonight?
holy crap, Romney might pick Ryan as VP? WTF. Does he not remember Dan Quayle? The stoopid……it burns!!!!
hey dearie — dood is desperate to get the tax returns issued buried by something… anything…. anybody
how’s the so central ca coast tonight?
Hey Pups! The stoopid…
hey ce — how’s cleveland tonight?
And, then again, the whole charade makes me wonder…… who is the puppet master in this silly game? I don’t think Obama wants to keep on keeping on, but I also don’t think Romney wants to deal with the ridiculous.
Costa Rica seems like a nice place to enjoy my retirement…… or maybe Sicily….. or Slovenia.
Hey Suz how ya doing? Deadwood city is doing great after a nice warm pleasant day it is already down to the low 60′s … great for sleeping… Tucker sends a W00F W00F to Token now that he is back with his Moma☺ ☺
So cool and cooling — just wonderful!
i’m once again giving more thought to where i would go…
It rained off and on, and frequently all day. So wanted.
I spent a wonderful four days in Montana with my girls and their offspring. It was, gotta admit, grandma heaven. My kids seem to be on good paths … and way less angsty than I am. Time for me to settle back, as it were, and just enjoy. If my one vote could change the world, well then……….. but I’m a realist.
Aloha, Suz and lln pups…! How on earth did Msnbc’s Chuck Todd get that scoop, and not Faux Spew…? ;-)
we are in for a warm up starting tonight.. its still 70 outside and the low is forecast to be 60 tonight – not great sleeping weather. mid to high 80′s until thur when we are forecast to hit the 90′s (and maybe a 100 or two).
token would give a tail wag back but he’s snoozing on the sofa
Everyone who wanted this race over by Labor Day just got their wish …
yay! ya’ll deserve cooling after the hot ya had last month
aloha tut — how’s paradise tonight?
petro! how’s toronto tonight?
We’ve gotten a ton of rain these past couple of days, and temps are comfortable.
If anyone can make Palin look semi-sensible, it’s Paul Ryan …
Well wake his little ass up ☺☺☺☺☺
As usual the Bay Area weather is just fantastic!
Can you believe what Romney is doing?? He just lost ALL the SENIORS who know that if Ryan’s budget becomes law they will have to pay thousands more for Medicare,, Like they can afford it..
has rmoney written off florida?
jon stewart is gonna have a forking field day moonday
Hard to know just what the fook RMoney’s thought pattern is on any day, but I think he’s counting on the TeaParty’s support to lift him up.
OTOH, I wonder if the investigation into whether or not Mitt was evading taxes will be enough to make him step down.
‘Scuse me, but who in their Right mind thinks Ryan is ready to be president? The very idea is bizarre. WTF???? And Palin had more white-guy-fantasizing-who-he’d-really-sleep-with appeal. I mean, really!
Two smarmy White Guys is not a Game Changer.
his veep pick is not going to make the tax return issue go away
hey hackworth — how ya been?
Well, he was Prom King!
Fine, thanks for asking. You?
Ryan as the VP is ludicrous. Of course Romney as the GOP candidate is ludicrous. So, hey, a big Whatever………….
i’m hanging in. over did on sun when i went up to mt st helens with a friend but am slowly recovering from that.
I think he has written the whole election off…. Who in their right mind would vote for them and risk losing everything in their Golden years?? Which would turn into a time of abject poverty for millions and millions of citizens… As Alan Grayson said “Hurry up and die” would be the Republican plan! They don’t want to spend a penny on the masses even though they all paid into the benefits they are entitled to!
i don’t think his heart is really in it. i think he knows he’s gonna lose and is just going through the motions is my guess.
he’s NOT liking all the attention to those pesky little details, like taxes, that his candidacy brings
Ryan’s got his own “Budget” named after him.
The GOP might as well throw in the towel. Why bother? Just wasting their money. They’re not even trying to beat Sydney Poitier.
Methinks he’s hoping that picking Paul Ryan now will activate the Tea Party, and have them drive the conversation …
Jon Stewart called Obama the Usain Bolt of politics and Karl Rove’s lapdogs are gonna face a very long 3 months.
i can’t wait to see what jon does monday night
The only way to defeat Obama is to attack him savagely and relentlessly. Mitty just doesn’t have the juice for it, so they’re bringing in Ryan to be his attack dog, that’s all.
colbert’s gonna be a hoot too
The fireworks are celebrating the end of our wonderful County Fair…. and I love the county fair. It’s the little things in life that bring pleasure. It’s the big stuff that is going to make our lives so difficult.
Stephen is going to go full bore as well …
hey robert — how’s southern PA tonight?
Wotcha drinkin’ tonight … *g*
i hope to attend ours next year when i’m walking better. ya learn so much about your area when ya attend the county fair
A bit like an early Fall….
a vanilla double latte with dense foam and foam art please…. i took a pain pill earlier so am abstaining tonight
And, really, I don’t think that Romney or Obama matter at all. The oligarchs will run the show in any case. The left (at least MY left) doesn’t care for Obama, and the right (my neo-con relatives) don’t care for Romney. None of us matter at all. Ease on back, folks……this is not about us!
feeling that way here too. tues when i took token to tilly for his doggie beauty appt i noticed the maples leaves in the coast range had changed from green to green with a yellow undertone… and then noticed the same cast to the maples here
On its way … with Caramel art on the foam !
sweet! thanks dood *slurp*
Hi Suz, you feeling any better today? I am still turning the last corner on getting the fencing up, have just one more section, could not do it myself.
Niters pups time to snuggle with my sweetie!
Oh I forgot I added a bunch of pictures from our camping trip! http://www.flickr.com/photos/28832312@N06/sets/72157630776460788/
hey bg — yay for the fence almost being done!!! today was better than yesterday but i’m still pretty sore. gonna take it easy (per instructions) and kick back until next week. how’s nm tonight?
Eddie Munster is running for VP? bawwwhaaahaaa….dummies.
hey senator — the richie rich/eddie munster tag team of fail
how’s sac tonight?
I feel hot tonight. I picked a nice bin of tomatoes a bit ago, lots of Romas and a few round ones, got some Black Krims on the vine almost ready to pick. I need to concentrate on getting grapes tomorrow. I missed a couple of days of fighting off squash bugs and they hit me, dang it.
mule and grace
whatcha gonna do with all those ‘maters?
Listening to local news saying that Ryan will, indeed, be the VP nominee. Bye-bye Romster! Insanity.
How crazy can crazy get? Stay tuned, I guess.
gonna be stupid crazy… i’ve been getting anti-obama ads demanding the democrat’s nomination a real candidate on the teevee machine — they want folks to call a number to sign the petition
I guess I’ll be making sauce. . .
nothing like getting the taste of summer on a chilly winter day
Good evening all.
I am sooooo jealous, bgrothus. I’ve given up on tomatoes in our region and concentrated on tomatillos, which have a better chance. I’m ordering tomatoes from E.Wa next week for canning through my favorite local farm. Just put my peach order in for Elbertas after Labor Day.
Just found out the picking cukes are ready, but I’m not!
They Want Stupid Crazy.
hey openhope — how’s the sound tonight? you gonna make more of those garlic pickles? they were forking yummy!!!
hiya Suzzzz – how’s everyone tonight?
hey ppd — how’s the monterey bay tonight?
I like growing tomatoes, I don’t seem to do very well with things that grow on vines except grapes. . .I’d sure like some fresh green beans, a real summer treat.
Yes, ma’am. My garlic is awesome this year. I’m hoping the cukes are better, last year wasn’t kind on cucumbers here.
I need to talk to the Canning Queen at the farm. I’m going off the grid this year and NOT pickling in distilled white vinegar. It’s a petroleum by-product designed by the fucking brilliant minds-of-men in recent history to better preserve food and have an outsource for another Petroleum product. Which leaves apple cider vinegar or…..????
It’s hard being a pioneer, it hurts your body and your brain. :)
apple cider vinegar has lots of health benefits
Yeah,….but,…it’s pickles! Oy, the quandary!
yeah, i’ve not heard of it being used for pickling… am interested in what the canning queen says
pretty good, thanks — just watching the olympic coverage with the mute button deployed, the NBC commentwankers
that aforementioned pain pill has my typo to word ratio all outta whack — a sure sign that its time for me to say g’nite. hope to see ya tomorrow night for cartoons.
The Canning Queen is old school, she’ll say white vinegar and [ I'm projecting] a pinch of Alum [ aluminum]for crispness, I’m thinking. We’ll see. She might have tips on cooking with cider vinegar because it’s used in sweet pickles. I think I have 4 days to figure this out because it’s best to get the produce at the early prime of the season for preserving.
Sweet dreams, Suzanne and Token.
I did not know that about vinegar.
Good morning, pups. We’ve got Blow, Nocera and Collins today. In “Wrong Track Romney” Mr. Blow says current polls don’t look so good for the Republican presidential candidate. While they may not be predictive, they reveal some high hurdles in Mitt Romney’s path. Mr. Nocera, in “Down With Shareholder Value,” explains how a company’s stock price became the be-all-end-all in the modern-day corporate culture. Ms. Collins has a question in “Become a Star Tracker:” Ever think of going into politics without having to run for office? Nothing is really happening, after all, unless the opposition has it on tape!
Here they are.
The coffee and tea are ready, the cold drinks are in the fridge, and I’ve got French toast with cinnamon for breakfast. Christmas may have come early this year. The Zombie-Eyed Granny Starver for veep? Hilarity ensues… Have a great day.
Good morning to anyone who’s here. I haven’t had a computer for months (just my droid) so I haven’t been around. Maybe I’m repeating something that’s been said a dozen times but…..why are you all so confident? I know the polls say Obama’s ahead etc. but who can believe the polls when you don’t know who’s going to be allowed to vote? To me, the whole key for Romney is voter suppression and just like during the 2 Bush victories, I think that’s what Rove and company are working on. We all remember the Kerry loss where the polls (all election day) said Kerry would win. Then it shows a clip of Rove on his cell laughing. He knew they had it. That’s my fear for this November.
Good morning solai. Welcome back.
I think you are correct re voter supression. (look what’s going on in FL and OH to name but 2)
Hope to see you at PUAC in about 20 minutes
