This week’s TV-Hero Award goes to Big Jim Rennie in CBS’s Under The Dome. Big Jim continues to impress critics and naysayers alike.
In last week’s episode, Big Jim rescued the entire town from the Cave-Pods. After that he “took care” of the evil scientist who was experimenting on The Egg (the source of the dome’s power, of course). And during that time he took in a hungry, lonely stray dog. He gave him food and water, and named him Dog.
What happened to me last week had nothing whatsoever to do with my writings on this site. I know, I was also completely surprised upon learning this. I had offended no religious groups. I did, however, manage to chap the hides of the local Cattleman’s Association. I overheard them last night (they thought I was passed out) arguing about whether or not they should be called Cattleman’s Association or Cattlemen’s Association. They must have seen one of my recent letters to the editor in the local paper commenting on the state of our local cattle industry. I drive by those cows every day, I feel as if I know every one of them.
What can I say? I love cows! Or is it “I love cattle?”
Have you noticed how many women are going into labor on TV shows lately? Every show I see these days has the same scene somewhere in the story line: A pregnant woman yelling “My Water Just Broke!” It’s either that or someone saying “It is what it is.” What’s up with that?
Yesterday was a noisy day in my neighborhood. There were chain saws going on end of the street, wood chippers on the other. I tried watching a Netflix show with my headphones on, and the show I was watching had a jack hammer going for 30 minutes. What’s up with that? It is what it is.
I think I have what may be a million-dollar idea. A bouncy-house sweat lodge. Who says we can’t get a little exercise when we go on a spirit walk? What do you think? It’s a good idea, right? I am just worried that it might not be politically correct. What do you think? Is it all good? Is it what it is? What’s up with that? Hmmmm?
Do you know what magnetism is? It is the unexplained universal force that attracts objects to refrigerators.
Scientists say that judgment is the first thing people lose when they drink alcohol. That doesn’t seem right to me. Every drinker I have ever met has never had any trouble judging me. And I have known many!
Did you know that over 20 million balloons will be filled with helium for this year’s New Year’s Eve celebrations? Personally, I think that number is overly inflated.
A friend of mine claims to have perfect pitch. However, his hitting and fielding needs work.
Have a great Christmas, everyone! Don’t drink too much and lose your judgment. (Or get arrested and see what real judgment is all about!)
Last month I wrote about a bad experience I had with Acorn TV. They had the wrong email address listed for me, and I was being charged for something that was becoming impossible to cancel. I am happy to report that they did finally cancel my account and gave me a full refund. So I take back what I said about them. And they do have many good shows for only $4.99/month. Just make sure you have the correct email address listed!
I finally figured out why the San Diego Chargers lost so bad last week to the Miami Dolphins: Antonio Gates was unhinged.
I was reading that Pizza Hut may start using unmanned drones to deliver pizzas. I wonder how much you are supposed to tip an unmanned drone?
Have you noticed that many Sci-Fi TV shows these days have supercomputers that have human voices? I wonder why they always have a British accent?
I recently watched a bootleg copy of the Tom Hanks film “Captain Phillips.” In other words, I watched a pirated video about Somali Pirates.
Did I ever tell you the story about my friend’s Great-Great Grandfather? He came to the U.S. in 1920 with nothing but the shirt on his back. He was promptly arrested for indecent exposure. Apparently he didn’t know it was illegal to walk around in this country with no pants on.
Did you know that everyone has their own unique set of dimples? It’s true. Would I lie to you? However, some exceptions to this rule have been known to occur. These people are known as “Dimplegangers.”
Do you have nerves of steel? Me too! Although lately mine have become more like steel wool. But I have a few days off, I plan on sleeping a lot. I am way backlogged in that department. Aren’t we all?
The drought continues in California. The town I live in has strict water restrictions. You aren’t allowed to use a hose to water your plants. Instead, you use the hose to fill a bucket, and then you pour the water on the plants. For our upcoming wedding anniversary I have asked my wife for a 50-gallon drum of drinking water.
