Let it burn?

Thugs gonna thug, I guess. Leave it to idiots to celebrate by destroying stuff.

“Making crap up” is not a wise strategy

This “news” story is flying around Facebook, Twitter, and various e-mail chains:   Rick Santorum most definitely did not say that being a woman is a mental disorder. The site “quoting” Santorum is a parody site. No, I will not link to them.

Stunning photos of volcanic electrical storm

It looks like a scene from Mordor in LOTR: Return of The King.

After the storm

The symptoms of a tuna coma

Predators, my foot. They’re too lazy even to chatter or growl at the birds. They’re literally snoring.

Any Taliban seeing this …

… would wet his undies.

Those stripes mean something, dummy

I took this picture on July 28th just outside Fat Head’s Saloon (click for full size): I’m pretty sure that car belongs to one of the owners of the brewery. What a jerk.

Ahhh, Autumn

Y’know, sometimes you’ve just gotta leave the laptop, go outside, and enjoy the brisk air. Here I am out on my patio enjoying a cigar a few nights ago. My co-blogger and irredeemable commie best friend TooShort took the picture. This, of course, is the culprit himself.

Southern California wildfire photographs

Created with Admarket’s flickrSLiDR. Taken 10/23/07 by my cousin, who writes: “So far the devastating California wildfires haven’t caused us any major problems here in San Clemente. The smoke and ash has been horrible, but the fires have kept their distance. I went on a hike and took a few pictures, which I’ve attached to […]

Just crossed paths with Laura Ingraham

Laura Ingraham’s “Power To The People” book tour pulled into Cleveland today. Here I am at the WHK Meet & Greet over on the East Side. The lady radiates energy. She’s on her tenth stop in this book tour, and won’t get a break ’til the middle of next month. A three day break. She’s […]

Friday catblogging: catnip harvest

Found in my sunroom this afternoon: “Why the surprised look? It’s what we do.”

Contrails over NE Ohio

Although Mike Trivisonno is going bonkers about fighter jets and dastardly chem trail conspiracies on the air at WTAM, his histrionics did serve a good purpose. I took some lovely photographs of the interlaced contrails overhead this afternoon. Click the pic to see all seven. Enjoy! Update: Nice shots by “USAgent” here, and a NewsNet5 […]

Is that a walrus or a cat?

Can this cat … … be real? I honestly don’t think that’s photoshopped. Geeeez, my two are positively microbial by comparison.

Friday catblogging II

Bo and Taffy, lounging sisters I had to do this again at some point, you know.

Flags in the rigging

Michelle Malkin put out a call for favorite photos of the American flag, so here’s mine. When I was still in the Coast Guard, I snapped this image looking up into the rigging of USCGC BITTERSWEET at her decomissioning ceremony on August 18, 1997. She’s now named the Valvas, and serves in the Estonian Border […]

Friday catblogging

I’m going to buy a second Burmese cat in about 3 months to keep my current Burmese female company. Here’s a pic I just got from the breeder, who tells me that this litter had 4 champagnes and 2 sables, sex as yet undetermined. They were born on Christmas Eve, and one of ’em will […]
