I feel like I had a Saturday stolen from me

Had some issues  today, and I wrote a post about it,  but it came off more like whining, so I deleted it before putting it up.  The problems I had today really weren't that much in the overall scheme of life.  Here we are at 6:21 pm and they are done.  The bottom line is my Saturday did not turn out like I had envisioned it when I woke up this morning. 
 I did get a little bonus problem right when I thought all the issues I faced today were done.  My Right Rear Brake light has failed.  Not a biggie,  but there is no way I can take off the taillight enclosure to access the bulb, so I will have to take it to the shop eventually.  For now I just plan on driving around with it.  Its just one of the two bulbs on the right side, so it will still show any drivers following me when I am braking, and the left side is fine. 3 out of 4 bulbs should be enough. Other than the money it will cost, and the inconvenience of having to take it into the shop, it is certainly a very solvable problem.

From "Happy Endings"

The Butterfly effect - led to Ashton Kutcher making a bunch of bad movies.   --- See, it  not only was a movie called "the Butterfly Effect " but it also created a butterfly effect.

Taylor Swift Killed it at the Grammys

Watching the Grammy's tonight and once again finding myself loving Taylor Swift.  Its this simple,  She is singing her song that asks the question "why you gotta be so mean"  and she is killing it.
If you are living somewhere under a rock and have not heard  it,  the song is about Taylor Swift  singing a song and tonight she is strumming a banjo to make it happen and its like a banjo is the most normal instrument you could ever think of to play because she makes it that way,  And she is slaying a grammy audience.  then when the audience gives her  a standing ovation ....she looks over everyone and her face tells a story of someone who is proud and grateful and it is so beautiful.

You GO Ralph!

To laugh often and much; to win the respect of intelligent people and the affection of children; to earn the appreciation of honest critics and to endure the betrayal of false friends. To appreciate beauty; to find the best in others; to leave the world a bit better whether by a healthy child, a garden patch, or a redeemed social condition; to know that even one life has breathed easier because you have lived. This is to have succeeded.”
Ralph Waldo Emerson

So True!

Yes!  I embrace the premise behind this cartoon!  Let the free market and mans ability to reason be what determines how we go about life!  NOT the Government making those decisions for us! And Yes, There are consequences! (Wiley Miller's Cartoon)

Does Warren Buffet need more money?

Super bowl Sunday is almost here.  It truly is one of my favorite days of the year, and one of the people playing this time around is Tom Brady.
That guy is living the life.  He is a good looking dude,  He is one of the very best quarterbacks in the world.  He makes tons of money, and he is married to a Brazillian Super Model who actually earns more than he does!   Imagine having all of that!   So very happy for his success in life.
His wife even sent around a sappy E-mail to all his friends asking them to think positive thoughts on his behalf.  I wasn't on the list but someone leaked it to the press and now people are ragging on them. 
I get rooting for a team playing against Tom Brady,  I will be doing that this Sunday myself, but hating on Tom Brady because he has it all is just wrong.  Ragging on his Super Model Wife Cause she is sending it out to the universe also strikes me as being petty, but I do like that line in the article comparing her e-mail to wishing Warren Buffet financial success.  .
