More RE: Super Bowl commercials.

I thought the Planters unibrow was really odd.

And the Doritos mouse one very creepy!

DITTO! Actually, most of them left me shaking my head. Some of the worst ever, I thought. Left me thinking,"They paid that kind of money to air these!?"

I did like the Bud one with the horse being trained by the dog, and the one with Will Ferrell as the basketball player, and the one with the folks nodding off/spoof of the old SNL skit with Will and Chris. But again, worth millions? .. hmmmm, I don't know about that ...

Oh, and the water one with the dancing lizards has major logo-identity problems -- everyone in the room I was with thought it was a Geico promo at first...

A... and then the monopoly held by the Demos and Repubs might have been cracked and America might actually have been on the road to true democractic elections -- and a true three, four, five. etc., party system in the future. ...Sure, there are all kinds of parties out there and occasionally a Libertarian gets elected, but the reality of it is, America is a two-party system (that's my opinion and I'm sticking to it!) by design, by intent, by historical maneuvering, and by the money factor. So I can be quoted all the facts out there, but I know in my heart it's still a two-party system...

B-C. ...I'm proud to be an independent and I don't thinks it's right to blackmail me into picking a party in order to be part of the primary process, but hey, that's the American way (at least in Arizona where I'm registered to vote)  ...


To A: Yes, we have what is essentially a two party system. And it slikely to so remain because, based on history, a soon as a counter-movemnet gains any traction, their main positions are incorporated into one or other of the main parties - positions from the left (like many of those from the early socialists) get aborbed into the Democrat Party, positions from the right (like many of those from the Libertarians), into the Republican Party. Since both parties modify themselves to address popular positions, they are likely to be around for a while. Democracies like France and Italy that have suffered under the varies of a multi-party system envy the stability the the US and Great Britain enjoy with their two party sytems.

To B: I don't think its "blackmail" to say you must join my party if you want a voice in our nominee.

Yes, I know you think the present sytem sucks - but I have yet to hear you propose a better one! You can't run a nation of 300 million people from a Townhall, and even if you could, the result would be mob rule, not an orderly government.

Good Afternoon!

Well, I believe they found an Eva, or at least an Eva cover.

In any case, it was nice to the ever-youthful, Larry Fuller, again today.  And in leather pants too!

As for the Topic of the Day...

I think out of the all the DVDs I've watched, I think I've only watched and/or listened to about four or five of the commentaries and special features.  I guess I just liking not knowing who is behind the curtain.

I appreciate the links to YouTube because I never go there just looking around. I only go when specifically directed by one of you thoughtful people here who suggest things of interest for us. So, I did want to express my thanks, and I hope the treasure-finders will continue to keep us informed here.

I spent most of the afternoon watching SOUL FOOD. I got through five episodes. I now have only three to go.

The show isn't big on guest stars. Terrence Howard guested on a couple of episodes as a feisty big-time basketball star, and Diahann Carroll was on one as the aunt of the show's three sisters.

There was one with actor T.J. Thyne ("Bones") who was pleased with some (insurance?) quote or other.  He had brought a head shrinker with him in case he didn't get a quote he liked, and one of the workers asked to go home 'cause he had a small head.

It was SUCKY and YUCKY!

Sorry, not in my kitchen, DR der Brucer.  I did season the English cut roast with Beau Monde and pepper before browning it.  It's now simmering nicely in my electric skillet.  The key is to keep adding water, but let it almost burn a time or two.  That just happened for the first time.  In an hour or so I'll add carrots and potatoes.  When they're cooked, I'll remove the meat and veggies and add some Kitchen Bouquet to the juice.  Yum, one of our favorite meals.

I've done four pages, will now take a lunch break and then do three or four more.  I'm beginning to think I chose the right path and I think I should be able to slog right through to the end by mid-week.

It's been a profitable day: both the new filing cabinet and the storage tubs arrived.  My biggest fear was that the storage tubs would be damaged and they were fine. I've unwrapped and vacuumed more books, started setting them out, and I think I will order one more filing cabinet before the week is out.  I also got several checks tody but not, alas, the large amount I'm expcting from one of my cabaret singers who oes me a third of her invoice at the moment.  The irony is that she sent me an email a week ago saying she owed me; so, where the hell is it?

I think when it comes in, I will buy a plane ticket to Ohio for a week and chill out.  Maybe I'll take the Macbeths a peace offering of some bedding I have no use for.

DR Ginny, I wish I were dining with you and Richard tonight!

DR Jose, would you like a margarita?

Challenge Churchill! One in four think Winnie didn't exist (but Sherlock Holmes did)
By REBECCA CAMBER - Last updated at 21:12pm on 3rd February 2008

Never, in the field of human ignorance, have so many known so little about famous Britons.

A quarter of the population think that Winston Churchill never actually existed, a survey suggests.

While a poll recently named him the greatest Briton of all time, the wartime prime minister is seen by many as a mythical figure along with the likes of Florence Nightingale and Sir Walter Raleigh.

According to the survey of 3,000 respondents, many believe the inspirational Indian leader Mahatma Gandhi, Cleopatra and the Duke of Wellington are also characters dreamed up for films and books.

Some think Charles Dickens was himself a character in fiction rather than the creator of David Copperfield, Oliver Twist and Martin Chuzzlewit.

In a damning indictment of the nation's historical knowledge, many of those surveyed said they believe Sherlock Holmes was a real person, along with the pilot Biggles and even the Three Musketeers.

Almost 50 per cent were certain that Eleanor Rigby existed not just in the imagination of John Lennon and Paul McCartney.

And they were in no doubt about the existence of King Arthur, Lady Godiva, Robin Hood and Dick Turpin.

Ann Coulter Vows to Stop 'President McCain'

Quote
Newsmax: Do you really plan to campaign for Hillary if McCain is the GOP nominee?

Coulter: I will campaign against John McCain until Inauguration Day, which, God willing, will not be his.

Question: does this hurt Mc Cain, or help him?
