Well...all is not happy in Blogland, and I'm ready to spit nails...big 'o honkin' cement nails!

Seems Barbara Bauer, the famed scam artist who calls herself a literary agent has suceeded in getting Jenna Glazer's Absolute Write website kicked off the air! Not to worry though...Jenna is looking for a new host as I write!

Bauer called Absolute Writes webhost and sounded threatening enough that the poor girl who owns the site pulled the plug on one of the best writer sites on the internet. You can read more about it over at Miss Snark's Blog. She's also got links for other pertinent reading.

Now for something lighter!

Will Rogers, who died in a plane crash with Wylie Post in 1935, was probably the greatest political sage this country has ever known. Enjoy the following:

1. Never slap a man who's chewing tobacco.

2. Never kick a cow chip on a hot day.

3. There are 2 theories to arguing with a woman...neither works.

4. Never miss a good chance to shut up.

5. Always drink upstream from the herd.

6. If you find yourself in a hole, stop digging.

7. The quickest way to double your money is to fold it and put it back in your pocket.

8. There are three kinds of men: The ones that learn by reading. The few who learn by observation. The rest of them have to pee on the electric fence and find out for themselves.

9. Good judgment comes from experience, and a lot of that comes from bad judgment.

10. If you're riding' ahead of the herd, take a look back every now and then to make sure it's still there.

11. Lettin' the cat outta the bag is a whole lot easier'n puttin' it back.

12. After eating an entire bull, a mountain lion felt so good he started roaring. He kept it up until a hunter came along and shot him. The moral:
When you're full of bull, keep your mouth shut.


First ~ Eventually you will reach a point when you stop lying about your age and start bragging about it.

Second ~ The older we get, the fewer things seem worth waiting in line for.

Third ~ Some people try to turn back their odometers. Not me, I want people to know "why" I look this way. I've traveled a long way and some of the roads weren't paved.

Fourth ~ When you are dissatisfied and would like to go back to youth, think of Algebra.

Fifth ~ You know you are getting old when everything either dries up or leaks.

Sixth ~ I don't know how I got over the hill without getting to the top.

Seventh ~ One of the many things no one tells you about aging is that it is such a nice change from being young.

Eighth ~ One must wait until evening to see how splendid the day has been.

Ninth ~ Being young is beautiful, but being old is comfortable.

Tenth ~ Long ago when men cursed and beat the ground with sticks, it was called witchcraft. Today it's called golf

And finally ~ If you don't learn to laugh at trouble, you won't have anything to laugh at when you are old.

"I fell asleep, and now I feel like an episode of Gulliver's travels!

    I've got to say, if this web hosting chickie was that easily swayed, better off elsewhere. Unbelievable.

    I hate doo-doo heads.

    Gee, Bonnie, thanks for the split side. I'll do you a favor some time. In case you didn't catch the mirth, I'll state it plainly: My wife and I laughed our heads off at those Will Rogers quotes.
