Protecting our nation
This New Yorker article shows some details.... (warning... very long, but insightful)
You can find a short version at Washington Monthly... (for those in a hurry)
I'm all steamed up about this now... and cannot find a nice non-political link... so for the locals out there... check out Eric Perkins Blog from the Olymics (from Perk at Play on KARE 11). It's kinda fun, even if you are like me, and not following the Olympics at all!

An old picture
This photo was mailed to us from a relative (Darlene Erickson) of Velma's today. It Merrill, Velma, and Janet at about one year old.
From the side...
It's been years since I've walked on a frozen lake. It always kind of nerve-wracking taking those first steps, listening for creaks, looking for cracks, and trying to feel if the ice is going to give way. I guess if hundreds of snowmobilers can ride on it, I should be able to walk on it.

Funniest Cheney shooting post yet...
From "The Daily Show"
Jon Stewart: "I'm joined now by our own vice-presidential firearms mishap analyst, Rob Corddry. Rob, obviously a very unfortunate situation. How is the vice president handling it?
Rob Corddry: "Jon, tonight the vice president is standing by his decision to shoot Harry Wittington. According to the best intelligence available, there were quail hidden in the brush. Everyone believed at the time there were quail in the brush.
"And while the quail turned out to be a 78-year-old man, even knowing that today, Mr. Cheney insists he still would have shot Mr. Whittington in the face. He believes the world is a better place for his spreading buckshot throughout the entire region of Mr. Whittington's face."
Jon Stewart: "But why, Rob? If he had known Mr. Whittington was not a bird, why would he still have shot him?"
Rob Corddry: "Jon, in a post-9-11 world, the American people expect their leaders to be decisive. To not have shot his friend in the face would have sent a message to the quail that America is weak."
Jon Stewart: "That's horrible."
Rob Corddry: "Look, the mere fact that we're even talking about how the vice president drives up with his rich friends in cars to shoot farm-raised wingless quail-tards is letting the quail know 'how' we're hunting them. I'm sure right now those birds are laughing at us in that little 'covey' of theirs.
Jon Stewart: "I'm not sure birds can laugh, Rob."
Rob Corddry: "Well, whatever it is they do ... coo .. they're cooing at us right now, Jon, because here we are talking openly about our plans to hunt them. Jig is up. Quails one, America zero.
Jon Stewart: "Okay, well, on a purely human level, is the vice president at least sorry?"
Rob Corddry: "Jon, what difference does it make? The bullets are already in this man's face. Let's move forward across party lines as a people ... to get him some sort of mask."

Time for Night-Night!
How big is Maeve...

Hooking up the remote control...
Dinner with the Burfeinds
We also tried doing the scalloped potatoe recipe... first tip, 5 pounds of potatoes is a lot of potatoes, enought to feed a dozen and then some... I think also I might have let them sit out too long before putting them into the oven, as they came out black and icky looking. We'll try them again someday soon.
