Trouble with Google

0 Comment

Today GOOGLE featured the face of Cesar Chavez, (a Mexican farmworker who organized Latio farmworkers in the 1960’s) in the middle O on the GOOGLE homepage. A furious backlash from everywhere was immediate.

Tweeted one: Congrats GOOGLE, you’ve managed to alienate all Christians in America today: instead of celebrating Christ, they celebrate Cesar Chavez.

Tweeted Another: Today I switch to bing since GOOGLE thinks Christ is less important than Cesar Chavez.

*NOTE* If you GOOGLE now, you get just plain GOOGLE. Wow!

HMMMM: 97% of people laugh even harder when they try to explain why they are laughing.

Breaking News-Joe Dogs Gone

0 Comment

Got back from dog park this morning to this. Joe Dogs at The Pat was being demolished with surgical procedure. The whole process took about 2 hours (8:00-10:00) which incidentally was about the time we waited to get a burger served to us once. It was worth the wait, they had good burgers. Sad just the same.

The Clean Up Begins

0 Comment

GARDENSCAPE was (at least for us) a roaring success. Thank you to all who stopped in to our booth. The show closed at 5:00, we were packed up and back to the store by 10:00; but the unpacking will take days..and days..and days.

SHARING: I do not claim all posts to be my own…I post the sites they are from if the source is known.

THOUGHT OF THE DAY: I will be buried in a spring loaded casket filled with confetti, and a future archaeologist will have one awesome day at work.

SAD DAY: Body building legend Joe Weider passed away Saturday March 23 from heart failure at age 93. He put bodybuilding on the map, introduced and promoted Arnold Schwarzenegger in a big way.

STOP THE PRESSES: Serial cheater and sleazebag Jesse James married pro drag racer Alexis DeJoria. This is his 4th time down the aisle. Bets anyone? How long will it be before his first ‘slip’? And will he wallpaper a room in marriage and divorce certificates? Will that appear on Celebrity Cribs? Stand by.

Last Day Of Gardenscape

0 Comment

GARDENSCAPE: Saturday was crazy busy. Brought a tray of food back to the booth for lunch and it was still there at 6:00 untouched, we were that busy. Everyone is hoarse from talking and hurting from standing but it’s a good hurt. Met some really great people. Heading into the last day 10:00-5:00, then 4-5 hours of teardown.

FOUR TOP WISHES: 1.) To earn money without working  2.) to be smart without studying  3.) To love without beig hurt  4.) To eat without getting fat.

CAUTION: When someone tells you to get a grip…apparently around their neck, is not what they meant. Who knew?

Gardenscape a Success
