There is an issue with reaching the deadpool site at the moment. You can get there from here: http://deadpool.hookersandbooze.com/. Apologies…

Happy Armed Forces Day
They may wear different uniforms, but they’re playing for the same team. Happy Armed Forces Day to our brothers and sisters in the US Army, US Navy, US Air Force, Marines, and US Coast Guard.
Thank you for having our backs. Rest assured we have yours.
…..just want to watch the world burn.
Yes, y’all have seen it before, but I love the way the artist manages to stick it to the AGW dolts
Some of y’all may know, last weekend I got to meet Chef Curtis Stone. That was a total blast! Several friends have expressed complete jealousy over that, but it really was pure luck how we got to meet him. Thank you, Lady!
Anyway, it got me to thinking…. Mr. Stone is not the most famous person I’ve ever met. I got to meet Cheap Trick (volunteered as a backstage hand freshman year), Stevie Ray Vaughn (bus broke down at college after a concert and he came out to entertain students), Emmitt Smith (he came into my store to shop for his mom), among others (*cough* Troy Aikman *cough*). I will just say I never stood in line to meet these people. It just happened. But none of the meets were weird, save one.
I was twelve at the time, and our class was on a school field trip to our state capital, to tour the Capitol. See what I did there? Anyway, I was a curious little bugger, and wanted to read every. little. plaque. posted around the place. Next thing I know, I am wandering a different floor, and in desperate need of a bathroom. While looking around for a sign, two gentlemen exit a big room and come towards me. One of them, the older one, asks if I’m ok. I tell him I am lost, and need the bathroom, so he tells me to follow them and he will show me the nearest one.
In retrospect, that sounds like the beginning of a nightmare. But this is the Capitol.
Anyway, he escorts me to the bathroom on the floor below, then gives me instructions to where my class is probably headed. A little concierge is standing nearby with her mouth open. I tell the gentleman thank you, and he tells me I am welcome and to have a great day here. Afterwards, I come out of the bathroom to find the little concierge still there. I tell her hello, and she asks me, “You know who that was??” in a very thick Asian accent.
And as I shake my head, she says, “That was the GOVERNOR!!”
That’s right: Governor Bill Clements escorted me to the bathroom. Talk about Outer Limits.
And what was your most famous weird encounter?
And we get the present!
NASA’s Hubble Space Telescope has snapped a spectacular new image of an iconic nebula to celebrate its 23 years of peering deep into the heavens.
The Hubble observatory, which launched on April 24, 1990, captured the Horsehead Nebula in infrared light, peering through obscuring veils of dust to reveal the object’s hidden features.
I don’t know….doesn’t look like a horse’s head to me. Looks like a man with his back turned towards me, his arms out, and head looking down. Like a Calvin Klein astronomy ad.
Hope y’all have a great Sunday!!
Well, today’s HOTW is exceptional and not along the H&B norm, but ArmedGeek ain’t here, so here you go:
Thanks to Conservative Hideout for the inspiration
Well, it’s Sunday, and I really don’t feel like yapping about politics, so here is a poll for you:
I’m off to take the kidlets shopping for Mom Day
There has been a bit of a tweak in the time-space continuum.
Soylent Green had to rebuild his blog over at
the other platform from hell Blogger, and his deliciousness can be found at several places, including Soylent Siberia, The Soylent Sage, and Soylent Green.
Just stick with Soylent Siberia for the most part. Even though it’s Blogger.
And I have now been informed that our blogger friend, XBradTC, has a new (well, “new” in that he is now actively posting stuff there) blog. His deliciousness can be found over at The Captives. A sample:
He likes tushies, and so do y’all.
Consider this my public service announcement for the week
While battle raged at the Alamo 177 years ago, a free Republic was born when delegates from across Texas met to declare their independence from a Mexican government that had “ceased to protect the lives, liberty, and property of the people, from whom its legitimate powers are derived.”
The men who declared Texas Independence knew with every fiber of their being what the price of liberty was, and that same appreciation of liberty still guides the Lone Star State today. We owe it to those who sacrificed it all to fight back whenever freedom is threatened.
I hope you have a happy Texas Independence Day, remember the brave Texians who laid it all on the line, and always stand for liberty. — Senator Ted Cruz
Texas will always stand for Freedom and will always push back against tyranny. Y’all would do well to remember that.
Well, it’s Lent, so I’m not imbibing. That usually means I don’t have a Girlie Drink. But since I forgot to let ArmedGeek know, I shall feature what I have been drinking.
Ever since I got the Keurig from Hubby, it has been that bad. Except no coffeepot is actually involved. Nor fang-like nails. But the ease in which one can acquire a cup of coffee is directly proportional to the amount one consumes in a day.
Anyway, how do y’all take your coffee?
