It’s a Bird! It’s a Plane! It’s “Super Moon”!

March 19, 2011


I rarely if ever drive at dusk and at night (never ate my carrots as a kid), but I had to run an errand the other evening and was out later than I thought. Both my son and I noticed the beautiful moon hanging over the horizon in the darkening sky. It seemed to appear […]

Myth or Legend? Suspending Water Without a Cup?!

March 1, 2011


Hmmmm…. tell me if you think this is possible: You filled a cup with water and turned it upside down on a smooth surface. You quickly twisted and lifted the cup, and the water remained on the counter– suspended without any support– in the shape of the inverted cup. Is this REALLY possible?! My husband, […]

People Crackers?!

January 6, 2011


Outrageous! This constitutes discrimination and encourages violence toward mailmen! Look what litter we found floating around in our yard: My husband was emotionally scarred after seeing this. He is a mailman, and he has had his share of close encounters with monster dogs. He could tell you some stories, Cujo-style, I tell ya. He’s worn […]

Deer Jump Into Grocery Store, Munch Produce

November 15, 2010


Hoh boy! I saw this story on my local news today: Deer dash into Western New York Wegman’s grocery store. Yow! Someone got the action on video. If you play the video, be aware that after the deer video is over, the video continues playing other news videos. :-p Sorry about that. I can’t figure […]

November 12, 2010


Nothing like a possum skulking around in the basement to keep you on your toes, full of vim and vigor while you exercise heartily and obtain your target heart rate for aerobic exercise! Yes indeedy! :blink: We knew something was afoot a few weeks ago, when the cats’ food in the basement started mysteriously disappearing. […]

My Sons Saw a UFO

September 24, 2010


I DO NOT BELIEVE IN “ALIENS.” I don’t believe in UFOs as from aliens, but I do believe in UFMOs (Unidentified Flying Military Objects). I have mocked crop circles and drunken alien drivers in the past. I just don’t believe in such stuff. And I’ve raised the kids to be REALLY skeptical of it, too. […]

Tin Foil to the Rescue: Defeating Big Brother’s Mobile Body Scanners

September 11, 2010


Ai chihuahua, and we thought the TSA body scanners at airports was bad enough. And we thought the Google Street Mobile, that captured the unencrypted wireless data of neighborhoods as it passed by, was bad enough. The A&E Z Backscatter Van is a nightmarish blend of both. Of course, it’s ALL for your SAFETY and […]
