HAPPY NEW YEAR!!
GEEZ, HOW TIME FLIES! Wasn’t Y2K just yesterday?

New Years Eve always reminds me of my little, uh…brush with the law many years ago.

Yes, I was one of many that ‘fateful’ New Years Eve, when they decided it was a good idea to try to catch people driving under the influence by, SETTING UP ROADBLOCKS!! (THE 1st YEAR they did this, mind you!)

There were two key factors leading to my DUI. The MOST important one was, FORGETTING to take a taxi!! Oh sure, I had good intentions and even had the cab fare in my ‘other’ pocket (away from my’ getting drunk’ money) And the second one…. well, just let me say this, a roadblock is NOT a bad thing UNLESS you are so inebriated that you FORGET there is going to be a, "WELL ADVERTISED" roadblock on your usual route home!

And, if you are like me and think they are going to give you a "GOOD DRIVING AWARD” just because you don’t hit any of those BRIGHT ORANGE CONES on your way up to the check point, well… You can forget about that! Hell,  when I saw all those blue lights FLASHING I was thinking for a brief moment that it was a, ROADSIDE K-MART SPECIAL!! WRONG AGAIN!!! Believe it or not the cop didn’t enjoy my sense of humor either! Imagine that!?! Anyway, I just thought I would share this VERY expensive lesson and hope that none of you had to endure this humiliation. I realize I should have warned you about this LAST week, right? (but, I was too busy drinking!!) KIDDING FOLKS!  Cause, when you wake up in the ‘pokey’ on New Years Day you just KNOW it isn’t going to be a good year!
 
ROSIE TRUMPS TRUMP!!!

Does anyone else think that Rosie is going to end up ice skating in "concrete shoes" soon? Don’t get me wrong, I agree she has a ‘beef’ with "The Donald", but Rosie keep an eye open at all times! I am sure that you all have heard by now that Rosie and Trump have been going at it, right? They are reminding me of ‘high school kids’ with their remarks, My personal favorite was when, after “The Donald” threatened to, “SEND SOMEONE OVER TO TAKE ROSIE’S GIRLFRIEND AWAY”, she replied the next day by saying, that she was up all night, scared that someone with a “bad comb-over” was coming to steal Kelly in the middle of the night from her! Stay tuned, you never know WHAT …"THE VIEW" has in store these days!

The PREDS had a tough loss last weekend when the referee was for the opposing team (I believe it was the Dallas Stars) Anyway, unlike football I guess when the coach has a ‘beef’ with the Hockey Refs, he doesn’t have any flags to throw in. I think at one point, when Trotz got so frustrated with a call I saw him throw in his jock strap! heehee


DON’T READ ANY FURTHER IF YOU PLAN TO SEE THIS MOVIE (ROCKY BALBOA)


Caught the movie, “ROCKY BALBOA” this week. Not sure just exactly WHY Stallone decided to even make another Rocky Movie especially THIS one! None of it made much sense to me. I mean really folks, just how many boxers can Rocky find on the shuffleboard court??heehee And, why did it take so much longer for Rocky to get into shape in the first Rocky Movie, (when he was no doubt in his 20s) compared to how long it took this time? (now that he is in his 60s) AND…WHY… Did they do away with ADRIANNE’S character only to have him sitting in the graveyard 3 quarters of the movie? And WHY…doesn’t he go down for the LAST count?  On the ‘bright side’, he does have some pet turtles Johnny.


A few interesting facts that have taken place in the last hundred years;

In 1906:
The average life expectancy was 47 years.
Only 14 percent of the homes had a bathtub.
Only 8 percent of the homes had a telephone.
There were only 8,000 cars and only 144 miles of paved roads.
The maximum speed limit in most cities was 10 mph.
