Got Postman Pheromones?

So yesterday I was messing around on my cheap POS phone and seeing what else I couldn't do online with it. (like... "This page is too large to load..." -you don't have enough internal memory),
And I came across a news article about a dog in Tennessee ripping off a Squad cars front bumper.

And get this, not only that but deflated a few tires in the process!

It becomes even more quirky when you notice the 2 dogs on the sidelines seemingly cheering the Pitbull 'Winston' on as he goes on his tirade.

Thankfully, the Police Officers had enough restraint to not kill the dog like most places around were I live.

And a judge took pity on him since he was a model prisoner for about 2 weeks.

But the question on many persons minds is; What induced this Sweet Pitbull to go a little mad, And what Postman -or- Woman is getting a good laugh privately somewhere!?

Check out the 2 minute video!!!

St. Patrick's Day Parade: Chicago Mar. 13th, 2010

So I fared the weather with Anne today to see the St. Patrick's Day Parade in Chicago, IL.

It was Overcast, Dreary, and with a cold wind off the lake, quite miserable.

But I couldn't let those people in the parade have all the fun for themselves!

I even had a ABC 7 News camera pass me over while live, I'll see about getting a still or video of that.

I was dressed head to to toe, well nearly in Irish gear, even though I don't have a lick of Irish in me. But you have to come out in respect of the Irish who made Chicago and Illinois what it is and the accomplishments they have brought to the World from Chicago.

Besides, if you live in or in the vicinity of Chicago and don't celebrate St. Patrick's Day, you missed something along the way.

I could get into a long discussion about what it is and what it means to whomever, yet all that matters here today is that you go out, have fun, and be safe while doing it.

Now although March 17th is the Official U.S. holiday for St. Patrick's Day, Chicago Holds the Parade the Saturday before, (Sometimes St. Patty's falls on this Saturday), Mostly to keep kids in school during the week if it falls during that time.

I met some people enjoying themselves and encountered Galaxy Goose from Facebook!

Either way I will leave you with some links and some photos.

I hope everyone has a Happy St. Patricks Day!

Traditional Sense

Freedom is by no means free but to trade it for security, is apathetic absurdity.

A reminder of the Power within our grasp.

"Sometimes we have withheld our power to destroy, and have left a threatened species like the Buffalo, a threatened beauty spot like Yosemite, or Yellowstone, or Dinosaur scrupulously alone.

We are the most dangerous species of life on the planet, and every other species, even the earth itself, has cause to fear our power to exterminate.

But we are also the only species which, when it chooses to do so, will go to great effort to save what it might destroy."

~Wallace Stegner


Words to think about, for everyday life, whether it be Nature, Family, Faiths, Rights, and or Politics.
