Something Seriously Cool

At my age I seem to suffer from ID (Interest Dysfunction). I seldom see something on the Internet that really makes me sit up and take notice. This is especially true for web services. Maybe I’ve seen so much that I’m very discreet or I just may be too damn old!


Today I ran across a very cool mail site called Wordle. I don’t really know what to call it, except Word Art On Roids. The picture here is what it arbitrarily built when I put in the URL of the i/m blog. I’m not sure of the magic application, but I’ll bet it can be put to good use. I hope you enjoy it.


Take care…….



PS I forgot to mention that I had trouble using it with Firefox. It worked fine with IE – now there’s a switch.

Walking Eagle


Two weeks ago in up state New  York, Senator Hillary Clinton was invited to address a major gathering of the American Indian Nation. She spoke for almost an hour on her future plans for increasing every Native American’s present standard of living,  should she one day become the first female President. 


She  referred to her career as a New York Senator, how she had signed ‘YES’ for  every Indian issue that came to her desk for approval.  Although the Senator was vague on the details of her plan, she seemed most enthusiastic about  her future ideas for helping her‘red sisters and brothers.’


At the conclusion of her speech, the Tribes presented the Senator with a plaque inscribed with her new Indian name – Walking Eagle.


The proud Senator then departed in her motorcade, waving to the crowds.


A  news reporter later inquired of the group of chiefs of how they had come to select the new name given to the Senator. They explained:  Walking Eagle is the name given to a bird so full of crap it can no longer fly.

Drivel & Drool


Things That Really Bug Me
<i/m Reprint>

Companies that spend a jillion dollars on a web site, yet the programmers aren’t smart enough to strip spaces, periods, dashes etc. from phone and credit card numbers

George F. Bush

Piss ant Police departments that have so much time on their hands they do “safety” checks. Can I hear a big Bull Shit!

The Patriot Act – like its going to catch anything.

Names for employees, like “associates” and “partners” OR my new favorite From Sam’s Club – “coach”. What really bugs me most is the places that use these feel-good terms like Wal-Mart would sell their employees body parts to slave traders if it would add .01 to the quarterly income.

“Disrespected” athletes making 8 figure salaries.

Big Oil – I guess everyone saw that Exxon just made more money last quarter than ANY US company in history! I recently wrote about their blatant thievery and some douche bag commented that it was a supply issue – China- India and other palaver spewed out by the American Petroleum Institute. I said then – just wait for the quarterly report. If anyone thinks we got rid of all the fucking bandits and crooks when Enron and Worldcomm crashed you’re fooling yourself. American business is corruption on corruption. We can no longer entrust our well being to “free enterprise”. It doesn’t exist.

Wall Street – speaking of crooks. The Exxon quarter “disappointed” the MBAs, CPAs and CFUs and the stock went down. What a joke our financial system has become.

Alan Greenspan – he’s screwed up more times than George F. Bush II and no one seems to know.

Escalades – the ultimate prickmobile.

Ten thoughts to ponder for the rest of our lives


Number 10
Life is sexually transmitted.

Number 9
Good health is merely the slowest possible rate at which one can die.

Number 8
Men have two emotions: Hungry & Horny. If you see him without an erection, make him a sandwich.

Number 7
Give a person a fish & you feed him for a day; teach a person to use the Internet & he won’t bother you for weeks.

Number 6
Some people are like a Slinky……….not really good for anything, but you still can’t help but smile when you shove them down the stairs.

Number 5
Health nuts are going to feel stupid someday, lying in hospitals dying of nothing.

Number 4
All of us could take a lesson from the weather. It pays no attention to criticism.

Number 3
Why does a slight tax increase cost you two hundred dollars and a substantial tax cut save you thirty cents?

Number 2
In the 60s, people took acid to make the world weird. Now The world is weird and people take Prozac to make it normal.

We know exactly where one cow with Mad-cow-disease is located among the millions of cows in America , but we haven’t got a clue as to where thousands of illegal immigrants & terrorists are located. Maybe we should put the Department of Agriculture in charge of immigration????
