This is breast cancer awareness month, and the NFL had its players wearing something pink to show their support; one of the commentators during the Giants/Bears game added, "It's nice to see that a lot of the 'ladies' are watching the NFL," the inference being that only women get breast cancer. Men also get breast cancer. Show your support. Give to a charity, or just wear something pink. It all works. You might look gay wearing pink, but then, you probably are gay, so embrace it, cuz this is your chance to be gay by wearing pink and attribute it to being your support for breast cancer awareness. No one will know so get out there with your pink shirts and enjoy your flaming self.

On something much less important, I bought a new toaster this month. My old one broke when my wife cleaned it and shook it to death to get every last bit of toasted debris off the bottom of the toaster. The shaking part worked, the old toaster was clean, but she broke it, so we had to buy a new one. The new toaster, made by Black&Decker, had a lot of buttons on it so I opened the directions to get an idea of what those buttons were supposed to do. Turns out they were there to toast bread. On the troubleshooting section they had information on what to do in case your toaster wasn't working as planned. These were the possibilities, and their fixes:

1) unit is not heating - the fix: toaster is unplugged
2) toast is too dark - the fix: setting on toast is too dark, lower the setting
3) bread is jammed - the fix: the bread is too thick, so slice it thinner
4) you smell burnt toast - the fix: remnants of food in crumb tray, clean the crumb tray (don't shake it too hard)

The California Supreme Court issued a ruling a couple weeks ago to temporarily suspend the execution of Albert Greenwood Brown, held in San Quentin for the 1980 rape and murder of a 15-year-old Riverside, CA girl. For the record, I am not a fan of the death penalty, for two reasons. One, killing someone doesn't solve anything. And two, it costs too much. The average cost for each execution is 2 million dollars. The average cost to house an inmate is approx. 35 thousand a year. You could hold someone in prison for about 50 years and it would amount to considerably less than 2 million, so it makes economic sense to keep that person in prison.
One of the reasons for the stay of execution was because the condemned was given two choices of drugs for the execution, but was unable to decide which one he wanted. That's kinda funny when you think about it: a convict who doesn't want one or the other drug offered him is rather odd. The second issue was that the drugs used for the execution were about to reach their 'expiration' dates. That got me to thinking, "suppose they gave him the drugs a short time after they had 'expired', what's the worst thing that could happen? He dies?"

Oh, before I forget, I neglected to mention that the black guy pictured above was the one up for execution and the other guy was the judge who made the ruling to stop the execution, in case you there wasany confusion.

My golf handicap is down to 4, and I recently shot my lowest round at my club, a 74. This is significant because my course has a slope rating of about 1000.
I had the pleasure recently to be hooked up with a wonderful couple, an older white gentleman and his wife, a Thai beauty named Sopa. I had never played with them before and I thought I knew all the good players at my course, including the woman. However, Sopa turned out to be a little known secret, and demonstrated a swing that should really go into the books as something superb. She is 60 years old, and has been playing golf for just 5 years. I was so impressed I asked for permission to videotape her swing with my Iphone, and she gladly agreed. Check this out. You'll need to be on a computer with QuickTime player, which most have by now.

Stephen Colbert was on Capital Hill recently speaking on the hearings for the issue of illegal immigration employment, and this is what he had to say to the American gov't. "This is America. I don't want a tomato picked by a Mexican. I want it picked by an American. Then sliced by a Guatamalan and served by a Venezuelan in a spa where a Chilean gives me a Brazilian." Keep it up, Colbert.

This is Mig porn. It's awesome, and the interesting thing about this file is that it is non-nude, but you'll have to go to confession after watching it and you won't quite know why. Here is Ayana, Jennifer and Kumiko. Turn it up, and enjoy. Thanks for visiting.
