Honey, I Got Some Hair

Scott over at Honey, I Fed the Kids! earned my sympathy and a few minutes of my time today. It's just not fair that Scott has such a beautiful family, all with rich, full heads of hair while while he can only dream of what used to be. So, I fixed it. Enjoy...

Yes, it's been a slow day at work today.

Something Is Wrong With the Universe!!!

Well, maybe not...but that was my first thought when I realized that my sister-in-law and brother-in-law officially started a blog. And unlike my blog which really serves no purpose they are setting out to do something extraordinary. Tom and Tif feel God leading them to grow their family of five to a family of seven. They are pursuing an adoption of two children from Ethiopia.
You can read about it yourself here...


If you're in the giving mood, I encourage you to donate to their cause. I think the total cost is around $36,000 and they're just a bit shy...around $36,000!!!!

These are good, God-fearing people who want to provide a great home for a couple of children. Of course, they also get the benefit of a really great uncle.

What's the Deal With THESE Guys?

I'm a regular reader of my local newspaper's web site ( I like being able to stay caught up on news throughout the day. Obviously, the newspaper has to make money by selling ads and I don't fault them for that. I'm pretty good about ignoring them, but the ads supplied by Adblade always get my attention. Their strategy, it seems to me, is to grab the reader's attention with bizarre pictures that seem to have little to nothing to do with the product being advertised. Let's take a look...

Since the ads are in a newspaper, they are designed to LOOK like news. That's an old trick. But take a look at those pictures and illustrations. Apparently, Jesus either has a low credit score or is the guy who can help me lower mine--or both. I'm sure Jesus could help me lower my credit score and so much more. Kudos to Adblade for being pro-Jesus!

And what's with the guy who failed to refinance?

It looks like he also FAILED to pick out his glasses and properly insert his false teeth uppers. Not only that, but I'd be willing to guess that a 747 could fly right into this man's nose hole without clipping a wing (provided his nasal passages are properly irrigated).
