Spooky Halloween Card & Matching Stamps

Well, these cat eyes aren't really all that spooky. They are lovely.

The eye colors that I saw in her gallery are yellow (gold), red, and amethyst.

You can get a halloween card, matching stamps, stickers, T-shirts, mousepads, etc...

I put the stationery "set" on my Halloween Card page.



PS to those crafy types ... I saw some great counted cross stitch patterns on http://www.jaenne.com/ (freebies).

Sexy Sarah Palin T-Shirt (Dark) by sarahpalingear

Designer says: "Looking for sexy Sarah Palin gear for the upcoming 2008 November election? This cool design is covered with hot pink lipstick, making it a stylish Republican gift idea."

Me: Sexy. Gee ... whiz. Guess they used the word "sexy" to gain a few visitors to that Tee. I think it it detracts from Sarah Palin being a smart, successful woman. I like the pink lips though, so I pointed to it despite the references to "sexy".

Miss Whitlock Lilac Keychain by annaleeblysse

I found a pretty vintage "nude" image that I souped up. I suppose back in 1902, placing flowers over a naken woman's body and taking pictures was fairly racy. There are currently four versions in the works. The "original" (though all have been alterred from the LOC image I found), this lilac and purple colorized version, and then fuzzy edged frames on both of those versions.

Description: A 1902 glamour photograph of the head and sholders of a beautiful woman with flowers in her hair. She is holding a bouquet of flowers as well. It is a very lovely image from 1902. This vintage image has been digitally reworked. There are no known restrictions on the original version from LOC.

Vote Anti-Celebrity T-shirt by traci_designs

A Funny Slam Against Outspoken Hollywood Celebs

Shirt reads: I'm Just Voting for the Guy that Causes the Most Celebrities to Move to Canada".

LOL!

Here is a great two-long list of celebs willing to move: Celebrities who promise to move out of the USA when McCain wins

I know a woman that had threatened to move down to Australia if Bush got a second term. It was a threat, and not a promise. She never did move. Darn it! I was kind of hoping she would have followed through. I had wanted to go visit.

Black is the New Green T-shirt by traci_designs

Black is the New Green T-shirt by traci_designs
A "Drill-Here, Drill Now" Activist T-shirt

Designer says: "Show your support for drilling in the US with this "Black is the new green" t-shirt. Bottom reads, 'drill here, drill now'."

I say: Cool shirt. I've been supporting drilling oil in Alaska since the beginning. I lived in Valdez during the final phases of construction of the Trans-Alaska Pipeline. We needed oil back then when in the '70s, and that was long before most Chinese nationals had a car sitting in their driveway. There are hundreds of millions of extra vehicles driving around the planet these days. Needing alternative resources of energy is a given. We all know that fossil fuels won't last forever. But, the fact is that tomorrow I need three gallons of gasoline to make it to work tomorrow so I can keep paying my bills. Me and 150 (approximate) other million workers here in the USA. We need to start drilling tomorrow on US soil to keep up with current demand.

Designer says: "The shirt reads, "Read My Lipstick" and has a red "PALIN" graphic scribbled with a lipstick brush." This is a very attractive design. I like the lipstick font addition.

What Are the Chances?

You know, you'd like to think that your neighbors are honest people. Decent people. About a week ago the post office mis-delivered mail and all I got was mail that belonged the right of me. I assume that means the box to the left of me got my mail. Two Netflix were due that day. They never have arived.

What are the chances that they haven't checked their mail in 8 days? I think the chances are higher that they are thieves.

Iif Netflix cares to analyze my viewing habits they'd probably notice I've already watched all the other Denzel Washington movies and didn't steal those ... so I'm probably not lying about these not having showed up.

So, what the the chances that my next door neighbor at the Post Office likes Denzel Washington movies too and is a thief?

You'd hope it would be low.

But, in my case it is 99% certainty.

I Love Nowhere T-Shirt by annaleeblysse

In Alaskan Governor's acceptance speech for the Vice President position on the Republican ticket at the GOP Convention, Sarah Palin talked about a "bridge to nowhere".

I love nowhere. My brother used to be one of the approximately 50 people that lived "nowhere". No kidding. When I lived at the top of the hill in downtown Kethickan, Alaska, he lived across the Tongass Narrows on Gravina Island.


For those of you that are interested, the bridge wasn't ever intended for people like my brother that actually lived "nowhere". In fact, in one plan (if I recall correctly) they were going to claim/buy a few houses to build a road over to the airport (which is located on Gravina). That airport is the main reason anyone ever considered building that bridge. Currently the only way to the airport is via a tiny ferry. Even in the winter there can be long lines, but in the summer....

Well, in the summer, tourism is really, really big business in Ketchikan. The years I live there consistently had 10+ fully-packed planes a day and 5 fully-packed cruise ships at the City Dock. Thousands of people waiting for this tiny ferry caused headaches.

I personally loved riding the ferry back and forth from town to the airport because it was uniquely Alaskan. There are very few towns in the world that don't have any flat land, and having the airport on another island was ... different.

Anyway, for those of you that read the US Today report that Sarah Palin changed her mind about the "bridge to nowhere", even though I wasn't in Alaska to witness her actions and reactions to that bridge, I am here to tell you that...

The powers that be supporting and/or not-supporting the Gravina Island bridge have little to do with political party lines, and everything to do with money. The deal with Alaska is that oil financed more than was needed for decades. For instance, Californians get used to bumping along on highways due to budgetary constraints. But, Alaskans get used to bumping along on highways because new potholes form a week-and-a half after the paving crew passed by. Alaska always had plenty of money.

HAD was a key world in that sentence.

Not anymore.

The idea for that bridge in Ketchikan was hatched when oil money flowed freely. The reality today is that oil production has dropped and the state is facing harder times.

Hurray to Sarah Palin for stopping the ball from rolling, and stopping that bridge. It doesn't always happen that way because I'm sure she was reminded that the people in Ketchikan needed jobs at least once or twice because ... they do need jobs. Ketchikan's economy has been suffering for the better part of a decade, which is about the time Al Gore was practicing up for his current role as environmentalist extrordinaire.

Mooses for Obama/Biden T-shirt by Greengallg

And now for words for support for Obama/Biden....

Cute political tee, but ... the moose of Alaska be safer with Sarah in the White House! Here is why I think that ... way down at the botton of this page of my Web site.


Note: I eat moose, or rather, did when I lived in Alaska. I don't consider hunting a violation of animal rights because I'm an omnivore that needs to eat. I'm not anit-hunting, but I am against the idiotic dog owner here in Reno that let their poor little poodle pup run around on I-80 last week. I cried for ten minutes, solid, thinking of that poor little dog and how unfortunate it was to be owned my morons.

The Great British Duck Race

I Couldn't Get Myself Out of Bed

This weekend The Great Reno Balloon Race, one of the largest balloon rallies in the United States, was taking place. Unfortunately for me, I have to be at work earlier than normal on Saturdays as part of my regular schedule and since I've had that schedule I miss the best part.

This year, same as last year, I had the best of intentions of taking a nap Friday night and waking up at 3:00 so that I could stop by the dawn patrol ... and then go to work.

But, no.

I couldn't get myself out of bed. I clocked in at 7:59 even without the dawn patrol drive by.

This morning at 5:00 AM they had the same event where they fire up the special shaped balloons like the Energizer Bunny made up as the Hot Hare Balloon and make them glow.

I didn't get up for that either.

But here are some pics and a movie from another year when this early bird culd find worms....



Penne with Roasted Butternut Squash and Ham

Image and video hosting by TinyPicI found a great butternut squash recipe on Yahoo! Food today ... Penne with Roasted Butternut Squash and Ham.

I love ham and squash together, but that isn't what attracted me to this recipe. I'm curious about the mascarpone cheese. I don't think I've ever tried it, unless it was in a dish at fancy restaurant or something and I didn't know what I was trying.

Until today, I didn't even know what mascarpone cheese was. Thanks to this page, I know where to find this speciality cheeese because they do have a Trader Joe's somewhere in town.



Description from designer: "Harvest these two cute butternut cartoon squash and personalize this text to make your own custom postage... Great for fall, autumn, Happy Harvest times, Happy Thanksgiving, gratitude greetings, "Let's get squashed", or for vegetarians celebrating squash soup recipes. A fun stamp to personalize for garden hobbyists and organic farmers."
