Yesterday we celebrated my daughter’s 24th birthday by having a picnic in the park in the afternoon, but I spent the majority of the morning working on “The Blog that Ate Poughkeepsie”.
I got home about 9:00 PM and was up until 12:30AM last night finshing it. Then I had to get up at 5:30 this morning so I could run my IHMSA pistol match. (Every 4th Sunday of the month at Tucson Rifle Club.) I got back home about 2:00 PM and took a nap. Right now, my wife, daughter, and grandkids are over at my in-laws. The silence is nice. I’ve been catching up on my reading.
Steven Den Beste has a post up concerning England joining the EU that I find worrying. Hell, I find the EU worrying, because as far as I’m concerned there are no checks and balances to restrain the power of the EU government with relation to the member countries, nor the individual citizens of those countries. A “United States of Europe” it’s not.
Rachel’s grandfather died. Drop her an e-mail with your condolences, if you would.
Michelle’s prepubescent husband had another birthday. What is he now? 16? :^)
Emperor Misha is on a roll with his continuing phillipics concerning the Islamofascists™
The Volokh Conspiracy has moved. Change your bookmarks.
Instapundit has links to two articles concerning Germany – one on the political ramifications of its opposition to the war in Iraq, and one on Germany’s collapsing economy. And, Glenn, I’m no econoblogger either – but it worries me too.
Kim du Toit has contributed again to the American economy by finding a reasonably priced M1 Carbine. And lots of ammo for it. (Why couldn’t I have married Connie? Ah, well, I don’t think it’s possible to have done better in the wife department than I did. I’ll just have to envy Kim’s gun collection.)
Clayton Cramer hasn’t posted since Friday, but what he lacks in quantity he makes up in quality.
Ravenwood has some good stuff up. Scroll down to “Government Schools at Work.” Then weep for our lost children.
Acidman is on hiatus. He’s gone to illegally fish for trout. (At least he’s not using dynamite.)
Comments are still open over at Bill Whittle’s Eject! Eject! Eject! for his most recent post Magic. He has over 300 now on just that one post. I will not envy, I will not envy, I will not envy…..
Frank at IMAO is offering the really cool “Nuke the Moon” T-shirt.
And finally, Courtney has a truly evil plan to stuff Acidman’s e-mail while he is gone fishin’ with – and I quote – “every annoying e-card, pics of cuddly kittens, and e-hugs we can find. Want to join in?”
BUWHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!! Um, no. No I do not. Really. No, I’m not kidding…..
I’m off work tomorrow, but I’ll have honeydo’s to get done. Hopefully I’ll get some blogging in. And I can’t WAIT to see what Jack will have to say in response to my last two posts to The Commentary. Hopefully I didn’t blow one of his frontal lobes.
