When you see this image, comment with the FIRST word that popped into your mind.

worst job?


What is the very worst job you can think of? What is the worst job you personally have ever had?

My list of bad jobs may not sound that bad: 
  1. Turkey catcher. At harvest time, before Thanksgiving you go into vast pens, catch really angry huge turkeys and haul the flapping bird whipping the amonia-smelling turkey dust to a trailer bounded by a very tall wire fence that encloses it. You must toss the turkey into the air over the top of the fence and down into the trailer. Usually there were 3,000-4,000 turkeys to enclosure.
  2. Root cellar digger. Of all the jobs this may sound like the best but you had to do it under people’s homes and shore up the walls so they – and the floors of the old homes – wouldn’t collapse on you and bury you alive.
  3. Docking sheep and cattle (before they had the elastic bands). It involves gelding the animals, putting tar-like disinfectant on the wound and putting a hot iron to new horns. Sheep brands are done in paint. Cattle brands are done on the flesh. The sheep and cattle are none too fond of the process. And yes, I know what Rocky Mountain oysters are.

New Urban Landscape


A view of the future, a view of an alternate universe or simply a view?

Test Cat


This is an example of the latest in monorail technology – a mechanical cat on a test rail to determine whether or not it would be practical for humans to travel this way in the future.

Tres Cool


I saw this photo, thought it was “way cool” and simply had to post it. I wish I had the eye to create things like this. Sadly, I don’t. 

Make Your Own Posters


There is nothing quite as fun to do as to make fun of the motivational poster industry. You can make your own using this template and Adobe Photoshop.

Mid-Life Crisis


Odds on the guy who owns the Viper and lives in the mobile home that’s not mobile is:

(a) Single
(b) Dating attractive women.
(c) Having a lot of fun.
(d) Maybe going through a mid-life crisis. (because most young guys can’t afford a Viper)
Which brings me to the subject of the so-called mid-life crisis. What is a mid-life crisis when one speaks of men? (I can’t address the woman angle but there is one) I’ll answer my own question.
Guys go through life doing what it is they think they’re supposed to be doing until one morning they wake up and find that the hour glass is less than half full. They weren’t able to do what it is they wanted to do, there isn’t all THAT much life left and they are left to decide what is important to them. For some, it’s a girlfriend half their age, a Viper, a divorce and so forth. For others its a grim wake-up call that they can’t cheat the reaper but they go with what they have. And unless a guy is a happy idiot, he’ll go through that thought process sooner or later.

Awkward Easter Posting


Yes, I wanted to step away from the politically correct for just a minute on Easter Sunday. For those of you who know me, you understand that I’m not at all afraid to be politically INCORRECT.

Hillary Clinton


In the past, I haven’t seen much good in Hillary Clinton. Yes, she’s a scorned woman. Yes, her husband performed the entire Kama Sutra with 10,000 other women while married to her. Yes, she has the reputation for being more attracted to women than she does to men. Now here’s a motivational poster that explains it all to me.



Turn down the lights, turn down the bed,

Turn down these voices inside my head.
Lay down with me, tell me no lies,
Just hold me close, don’t patronize.
I can’t make you love me if you don’t.

I can’t make your heart feel something it won’t.

Ardor Cools


Is this true?

Frankly I never found this to be the case, but I thought I’d put the question to you all for your consideration.



California prohibits smoking in buildings open to the public. You get used to it if you live here.

When you are in many US states outside California or are in Europe or Latin America people smoke in restaurants, and more or less everywhere including medical offices or hospitals. 
I visited a Chinese hospital a couple of years ago and literally everyone including the medical staff were smoking. There was no ventilation on the ward and the place felt as if somebody was piping automobile exhaust directly in. I found it odd.
I don’t smoke, so there you have it. My prejudice is exposed!
Where do you feel your rights begin and a smoker’s rights end (if you don’t smoke). If you do smoke, do you feel that there are places where it would be better not to light up? Have you ever considered smokeless tobacco? If you are a non-smoker, have you ever had the urge to kiss somebody who is chewing tobacco? (curious)

I think the squirrel is a Democrat. There is that Nancy Pelosi/Joe Biden thing going on.

99% of lawyers give the rest a bad name.

It’s simply how I feel this morning. Shakespeare was right when he wrote, “The first thing we must do is kill all the lawyers.” (Henry the Sixth, Part 2, Act IV, Scene 2)
For those of you who don’t know me personally, I retired from the District Attorney’s Office in Orange County, California two years ago. Orange County is located south of Los Angeles and people make reality television shows about people who hang out there. (Real Housewives of Orange County, The OC, Laguna Beach: The Real Orange County) So I do know lawyers. I simply have a stone in my shoe at the moment for the profession.
PS – None of the reality shows on television reflect reality – this comment has nothing to do with lawyers, but I felt that I needed to have some fine print in this blog.

New Moon

Don’t you think it’s sad when a lady can’t afford a pair of jeans that fit and don’t have tears in them? 

I’m not an apologist


There is something about going to war on a horse, encased in armor that appeals to me. I’m sure I’m not the only one. Well, I know I’m not the only one. Somebody drew this picture (left) and it wasn’t me. 

Dealing with Mexicans


Yes, it’s always manana…
