Cosmic Bizarre

by Bonnie Calhoun

I'm just going to chalk yesterday up as a bizarre cosmic aberration that is never to be repeated.

It started with Upstate New Yorkers waking up to the Nor'easter of the century. There is more than a foot of April snow out there. I know the snowbells usually come up through the snow but at this rate it will be June before the snow even melts. There are widespread power outages, and poor Debbie Brand was without power for most of the day. Thank God that up where I am, our lights only flickered a few times!

Next it moved onto the report of Britney Spears and her latest antics over the weekend, making a photographer tape her outside a Hollywood tanning salon acting high and like a Valley Girl as she sarcastically dresses down her fictional audience...and once wasn't enough, she made the poor guy tape it twice.

Then we moved on to the tragedy at Virginia Tech University in Blacksburg, Virginia. My heart goes out to the families of those 33 souls that were lost.

And last but not least...the Google/Blogger Help boards. I don't know how many people, other than the ones that are having problems, ever go over there...but I'm gonna' tell ya! Boy are there some crazy and bizarre stories going on!!!

From people being stalked by irate people that they have annoyed on other blogs, to people trying to get all of their blog pages to disappear because they are being sued for telling too much...FYI...when you delete a blog there are still cached pages out there on the search engines. You should overwrite the pages before deleting them.

And then you have the people who are threatening Google/Blogger with lawsuits if they don't take down blogs that these people feel are slandering them.

Let's have a joke from my friend Ric whose going on vacation to sunny Florida!

Tom was in his early 50's, retired and started a second career.

However, he just couldn't seem to get to work on time. Every day, 5, 10, 15 minutes late. But he was a good worker, real sharp, so the boss was in a quandary about how to deal with it. Finally, one day he called him into the office for a talk.

"Tom, I have to tell you, I like your work ethic, you do a bang-up job, but you're being late so often is quite bothersome."

"Yes, I know Boss, and I am working on it."

"Well good, you are a team player. That's what I like to hear. It's odd though, you're coming in late. I know you're retired from the Marines. What did they say if you came in late there?"

"They said, "Good morning, General."

    Man, I didn't know all this stuff was going on.

    I'd better take a gander at Google's help boards...
