Well in the last two days been busy on and been looking for my Aunt and Uncle out in Arizona. Decided to call my sister Cheryl and ask some questions about the family tree and she says she is on the phone with our niece Chrissy asking about the same Uncle we are looking for, seems he contacted her looking for us.

Identical searches from both ends and now we are in touch with each other and looking forward to a reunion in the winter when they come to Florida.

Uncle Paul welcome to Steve's Wacky World. Small world when you start connecting the dots.

Shamu Attacks

This just makes no sense to me, This is the 3rd death attributed to Tilly and they hope to work with the "KILLER" whale again. I know I preach common sense and this sure doesn't sound like that.

Keep him in the viewing pool and thats it before someone else loses a mother, daughter or sister.

Dear Tiger

Well must be the new thing in saving marriages, tell everyone you are sorry and sound like a robot reading a script while doing it.

There was no reason to come on tv and all other kinds of media to apologize when you could have called all those that needed one. Now you are opening yourself up to more criticism from the goody two shoes that have sinned, but havent been caught yet.

Tiger save your marriage then your career, you have enough saved away to keep going for awhile, while I sit here and make approx. 1/100000 of what you make in a week for a years work.

Sorry to hear you have problems, my news conference hasn't been scheduled yet so I can tell the world of all my problems. See you there.

Good old climate change

Meetings in DC cancelled due to inclement weather, including the Global warming meeting on Cap and trade. lol

Did you see in the UK criminals are switching from burglaries to muggings because of the influx of "cheap" chinese goods.

from the Atlanta Journal Constitution

ILBURN, Ga. – Police in Georgia say a 23-year-old man grabbed a baseball bat inside of a Walmart and smashed 29 flat-screen televisions. Police in Lilburn near Atlanta have charged Westley Strellis with 29 counts of criminal damage to property in the second degree. Witnesses tell police he grabbed a metal baseball bat from the sporting goods section Wednesday, walked to the electronics department and destroyed the TVs on display.

He was arrested not long after that.

Police say the televisions are valued at over $22,000. Police say they do not know whether Strellis has an attorney.

Must have missed his favorite American Idol episode.

Football is over and a week till Pitchers and catchers report.....

So in Florida you have to wear a seat belt in your car, but if you are riding a motorcycle you DO NOT have to wear a helmet. All for the greater good. More stupid laws later.
