America's Quiet Anger

24 comments:
By

There is a quiet anger boiling in America.

It is the anger of millions of hard-working citizens who pay their bills, send in their income taxes, maintain their homes and repay their mortgage loans -- and see their government reward those who do not.

Tax Refund

17 comments:
A tax refund or tax rebate is a refund on taxes when the tax liability is less than the taxes paid. Taxpayers can often get a tax refund on their income tax if the tax they owe is less than the sum of the total amount of the withholding taxes and estimated taxes that they paid, plus the refundable tax credits that they claim. (Tax refunds are money given back at the end of the financial year.)

Entrecard vs Boating

19 comments:
I've been in the number one spot off and on for quite some time now in Entrecard. It's been fun getting there and trying to stay there. I've had lots of time over the winter months to devote my time is seeing how well I could do. I know this is a senseless waste of time, but I love doing this every single day. Okay I'm addicted to Entrecard!

Father Joseph

21 comments:
Little Johnny was on his way back home from the store with a loaf of bread in one hand, and his other hand in his pants pocket.

Off in the distance, Father Joseph sees little Johnny and realizes this is the perfect opportunity to go preach the gospel of the Holy Bible to the young boy.

This is a great big thank you for last weeks advertisers. For those that I honor each week/month I'm well aware of the dedication you show. In order to stay in the top of the heap you're dropping EC every single day. Many of you have more than one blog and that's 300 drops per day per blog.

The Water Hole

18 comments:
One day, Little Johnny's grandmother sent him to the water hole to get some water for cooking dinner.

As he was dipping the bucket in, he saw two big eyes looking back at him. He dropped the bucket and ran back to grandma's house as fast as he could.

Glenn & Lucinda

12 comments:
Spring was in the air and Glenn wanted nothing better than find a big log of wood to chop down and get the load of wood ready to get the still running. The maple sap is being rendered down and almost ready for distilling. timing is critical for this step, because once the weather gets warmer he has to complete his primary, secret mission to get all that moonshine to the farmer's market.

Perfect Man

23 comments:
A man is an adult human male. Like most other male mammals, a man's genome inherits an X chromosome from his mother and a Y chromosome from his father. The male fetus produces larger amounts of androgens and smaller amounts of estrogens than a female fetus. This difference in the relative amounts of these sex steroids is largely responsible for the physiological differences that distinguish men from women. Source: Wikipedia

These two videos were taken on Friday afternoon just after we got to the boat and unloaded. We thought it was raining pretty good in the first video, but the second video the rain was really coming down. We so love hearing the rain on the tin roofs of the sheds. We were warm and comfortable inside the boat. What do you think of our view?

Four men were bragging about how smart their cats were. The first man was an Engineer, the second man was an Accountant, the third man was a Chemist, and the fourth man was a Government Employee.

Comment Game

26 comments:
It's time to play the comment game again. We are at the boat for the weekend (what else is new). Now play nice okay, and have a terrific weekend.

Here's how it goes: I'll start the game off at the bottom of this post by choosing two words or phrases, like coffee or tea, and which ever one you prefer you choose. You can also explain why. When you have done that you do two new words or phrases for the next commenter to choose from. Feel free to come back as often as you like. Just have fun. If someone derails the game will one of you put it back on track? Thanks.

2010 Census

18 comments:
The rumor mill is churning with different questions that the census questionnaire will ask. In some corners of the www it was downright frightening what the questions might be.

Well, I decided to find out for myself if any of those questions were true. You'll find all the information you need @ United States Census 2010. I'm not a fan of our government so outside of the phone number part, I might not have too much trouble with these questions.

Thank You

24 comments:
I just want to thank all of my wonderful friends for your educational e-mails over the years. I am totally screwed up now and have little chance of recovery.

I no longer open a public bathroom door without using a paper towel or have them put lemon slices in my ice water without worrying about the bacteria on the lemon peel.

The Trucker

20 comments:
A trucker who has been out on the road for three weeks stops at a brothel outside Kalgoorlie. He walks straight up to the Madam, drops down $500 and says, I want your ugliest woman and a burnt chop.

The Madam is astonished. But sir, for that kind of money you could have one of my finest ladies and a lovely three-course meal.

The Perfect Woman

22 comments:
An extraordinarily handsome man decided he had the responsibility to marry the perfect woman so they could produce beautiful children beyond comparison.

With that as his mission, he began searching for the perfect woman. Shortly thereafter, he met a farmer who had three stunning, gorgeous daughters. They positively took his breath away. So he explained his mission to the farmer, asking for permission to marry one of them.
