Investigating Scat On The Interwebs...

For a few weeks now, some prankster has been dropping a few dookies every night in our parking lot.

In the morning there are usually 3 or so little piles of scat just waiting  for us to show up to work.

I figured they must be racoons and lo- and behold the interwebs came through. It looks just like this:

Raccoon  (Procyon lotor)

Droppings tend to be 2-3 inches long and 1/2-inch wide (like a dog's) and are often filled with remnants of what they have been eating lately. For example, if they are eating corn, you will often find corn remnants in the droppings. The same occurs when they are eating fruit etc.

Droppings frequently are found in piles (called latrines or toilettes) on roofs, in attics, in sandboxes, and areas open to the sky.


In Regards To The Political Climate Lately..

I have been thinking about the "Serenity" Prayer as a way to keep my head on straight.

 To apply this great wisdom...

 1. The past cannot be changed, so what there is to do is to accept what has been with no regrets, no resentments, and no call for vengeance.

 2. Remember that there are a million "wrong things" in the world (as well as a billion "right things"), so focus your energies on addressing with courage the few issues closest to your heart, and accept the rest of life with serenity. 

 3. Never waste your time or energy complaining. Either take positive action, or accept with serenity. This is especially true with regard to politics and money.

We Got Bumpa Stickahs!

This truck belongs to a friend of my neighbor here a work. I had to get a picture.

He's a Navy veteran '59-'63 and as you can tell a staunch disliker!

If you pass by him by chance give him a beep and a wave!

A Rich Blonde......

.....buys a new automatic Jaguar XKR Sport.
She drives the car perfectly well during the day,
but at night, the car just won't move at all.
After trying to drive the car at night for a
week (but without any luck), she furiously
calls the Jaguar dealers and they send out a
technician to her.
The technician examines the car and finds
nothing wrong with it. So he turns to the blonde
and asks: "Ma'am, are you sure you are using the
right gears?" Full of anger, the blonde replies:
"You fool, you idiot, how on earth you could ask
such a question? I'm not stupid you know!
Of course I am using the right gears;
I use D during the day and N at night."

Never Surrender.... Kinda Fitting For The Times We Are In

Out in the streets inspiration comes hard
The joker in the deck keeps handin' me his card
Smilin' friendly he takes me in
Then breaks my back in a game I can't win
Jivin', hustiln', what's it all about?
Everybody always wants the east way out
Thirty golden pieces for the Judas kiss
What's a nice boy doin' in a place like this?
Never Surrender - keep your dreams alive
Never Surrender - hold your head up high
Modern apathetics; you got plenty of nothing to say
Some are born to follow: some will make their own way
Today you found a hero tomorrow you'll forget
You're lookin' for convenient truth you haven't found it yet
You don't make commitments no time for regrets
Easy come and easy go and easy to forget
You don't ever take responsibility
Don't you know that part of you is part of me
Never Surrender, it's easier said than done
But you go to finish what's already begun
Never, that's forever, seems like such a long time
But I only got one life to live - It's gonna be mine
Never Surrender - we cannot be denied
Never Surrender - spread your wings and fly

West Branch, Mich. is an AWESOME Town.. Read Why

In my opinion this is what communities should do. Banding together to stand up against 
this crap.

West Branch, Mich. — High school student Whitney Kropp was shocked earlier this month when she was named to the homecoming court.
Her happy surprise turned to humiliation when she learned the reason. The students thought it would be funny if the popularity contest was won by someone who was unpopular.
Kids pointed at her in the hallways and laughed. The boy who was picked with her withdrew.
Students told her that, in case she was wondering why the boy had dropped out, he was uncomfortable being linked with her.
"I thought I wasn't worthy," said Kropp, 16. "I was this big old joke."
Her embarrassment was complete, but it didn't last long.

Every once in awhile the radio stations play a song you haven't heard in forever . That song that just makes you want to crank it up, open the windows and break the law. This morning I hit XM38 Ozzie'z Boneyard and what to my listening ears should I happen to hear start?
