Somali pirates vow to kill American Sailors.

“We will seek out the Americans and if we capture them we will slaughter them,” said a 25-year-old pirate based in the Somali port ofHarardhere who gave only his first name, Ismail.”

Okay, so when are we going to let the US Marines go in and kick their pussy ass?


General Mills Retro Cereal Boxes



Silly rabbit. Trix are for kids


Right on the heels of Pepsi releasing two retro sodas, General Mills is starting to use their classic retro cereal box designs again. I enjoy these retro designs much more then the silly over-the-top current designs. From TheDieline.

Hang in there, Ford Motor Company

Ford Motor Company 


Ford Motor Company

My grandfather worked for Ford, my father worked for Ford, I worked for Ford, and many of my friends like the Mustos, the Krafts, and even long time childhood friend Butch Kirkham worked for Ford. It is good to see that Ford is doing what it can to keep it’s integrity good during these hard times for the big three motor companies in the US. I’ve always known Ford and the United Auto Workers union worked together much better then those other two companies.

Even though Ford is not borrowing money from the government, it had been expected to seek and receive whatever concessions that the U.A.W. granted G.M. and Chrysler, which are now asking to borrow a total of $39 billion. As it has turned out, the union has had better luck negotiating with Ford first and then asking G.M. and Chrysler to accept similar turns.

Earlier this month, after talks broke down between the union and G.M., Mr. Gettelfinger reached a deal with Ford on issues other than retiree health care and used it to broker terms with G.M. and Chrysler several days later.

Hang in there, Ford Motor Company! 🙂

Pepsi throwback

Pepsi throwback

Well, this was unexpected. I am a Coke drinker, but if this makes it easier for me to get a real sugar product (like Wrigley’s chewing gum), I’ll give Pepsi a try. I have been drinking the Mexican Cokes when I want a good soda.


Strawberry Fields is not forever

Strawberry Fields shut down: 31/05/2005 21:52 London – The Strawberry Field children’s home, immortalised in song by John Lennon, finally shut down its operations on Tuesday after 69 years.”

That is kind of sad. My father grew up in a children’s home for while.

FBI agent W. Mark Felt is a squealer

FBI Agents Alternately Criticize, Back Felt: “Felt, 91, broke a three-decade silence Tuesday, revealing himself as the famous source [of Watergate] in an article in Vanity Fair magazine. His family said they wanted him to come forward so that he could be recognized as a true patriot…”

I agree with others who “…said Wednesday that they did consider Felt a turncoat.” I would have called him a squealer.

How do jerks like this get to such important positions in our society?

Life cannot be put to a vote
