Happy St. Paddy's Day

The day was almost half over before I realized it was anything other than another ordinary day. Since I didn't even leave the house, no, there was no celebrating. I do have a little Irish ancestry, mostly Breckenridge on Dad's side and Clark on Mom's but neither was even within the last 200 years. There's probably a few others undetermined at present. The vast majority is German and English. Still, it's a nice little holiday; and I'm sorry I wasn't prepared with the corn beef and cabbage.

I finished up the job I had started the first part of the week, and TC came by to get it, promising we're going to get into high gear come Monday. She doesn't even know if she has a job Monday, but I hope she's ready to start cranking out some work.

Good news for me finally -- little event that it is. I was able to get my cell phone to download to the computer. I'm not even sure what I did, but just messed around with it, and -- surprise -- it works now! So, all seems to be in good form.
Of course, good news is always flanked with bad, and that is that the eMachine is getting more and more sluggish and every now and then I'll get a run.dll and app has encountered a problem and some other error messages, which generally means, start getting things backed up and ready. It's not far a' comin'. (sigh)

I watched Lou Dobbs - God bless him!! - and then went outside to work a little on my flower bed. I'll have to catch Olbermann on the 11:00 rerun - if he even will rerun tonight. The bed is now right at 20 feet and long enough, I think. I spent some time breaking up the clay -- (as opposed to real dirt - lol) into small clumps to put back and then top off with the top soil and sand I bought. A tiller would have been handy - if it could have cut through the gumbo. Oh, well. What clumps are too hard to break I'll use in low spots in the yard; but my wheelbarrow is still broke. Hopefully I can at least get the sweet peas planted this weekend since they're just about ready to get in the ground.

An Internet acquaintance of mine who is active with the Democratic party in Nevada, circulated an email today. Thing of it is, I suppose this is supposed to be funny -- but it's all too true! Here's a few:
"Things you have to believe to be a Republican today."

Jesus loves you, and shares your hatred of homosexuals and Hillary Clinton.

Saddam was a good guy when Reagan armed him,
a bad guy when Bush's daddy made war on him, a good guy when Cheney did business with him, and a bad guy when Bush needed a "we can't find Bin Laden" diversion.

Trade with Cuba is wrong because the country is Communist, but trade with China and Vietnam is vital to a spirit of international harmony.

The best way to improve military morale is to praise the troops in speeches, while slashing veterans' benefits and combat pay.

Providing health care to all Iraqis is sound policy, but providing health care to all Americans is socialism. HMOs and insurance companies have the best interests of the public at heart.

A president lying about an extramarital affair is an impeachable offense, but a president lying to enlist support for a war
in which thousands die is solid defense policy.

Friends don't let friends vote Republican.

Have a great weekend. I'll see you tomorrow.

Oh, I just read the Republican story and I'm still laughing! I cam up with a great nickname for these conservatives and their so called values--Repugs!

Ah, yes, "Repugs" is good! But I try to be polite - (ah-hem). I also restrain myself from calling Bush "Bush-it" too - at least in public! :)
