Whatever I want Wednesday…BABY EDITION!

For today’s “whatever I want,” I’m going to dedicate a song to the newest little Earp!  Congratulations, Wyatt and Mrs. Earp!

A beautiful day for a beautiful little girl.  🙂

Welcome to the world, Miss Julia.  You know, I seriously did pray for a quick delivery.  I think God is trying to encourage me regarding my prayers, because dang, that was a quick delivery.

“It’s a Beautiful Day”–U2



a-jeff2Approximately 2,700 years ago, a Yeuzhi shaman was buried with lots of pot.

“It was common practice in burials to provide materials needed for the afterlife,” lead author Ethan B. Russo, a practicing neurologist and prominent medicinal-marijuana advocate based in Missoula, Mont., tells the Canadian Press. “No hemp or seeds were provided for fabric or food. Rather, cannabis as medicine or for visionary purposes was supplied.”

Really?  Ghosts are smokin’ bud and getting the munchies in the afterlife?  How do they do shotguns?

But the researchers couldn’t tell if the weed was meant to be smoked or eaten. No pipes, bongs or rolling papers were found in the tomb.

Dude, all ya need is the cardboard from a roll of paper towels, some foil, and….oh….heh…never mind.

The ancient Greek historian Herodotus relates how the Scythians, Iranian-speaking nomads who roamed the steppes to the west of the Yuezhi in the first millennium B.C., liked to throw marijuana onto bonfires to induce trancelike states. It’s possible the buried shaman followed similar practices.

Wow!  The Grateful Dead was touring even back then?  Dang!  Those are some dedicated (and smelly) fans.

What? Did no one apply for the job?

a-gregFirst, David Gregory has been named to replace Tim Russert on Meet the Press.  Really?  Oh, well, I guess it won’t really matter since he is in the tank for the incoming president and others.

Here’s what else made me laugh:  he’s 38.  I thought the guy was pushing 50 or so.  All that grrr, anger, and pissiness really ages a person doesn’t it?

Eh, whatever.  Of course, the writer of the article found a nice comment from Ari Fleischer:  Former White House press secretary Ari Fleischer said Gregory would be “an excellent choice”: “No one was a tougher, more aggressive questioner in the briefing room than David Gregory. But when it came time to go on the air, he was always nothing but fair.”

Sorry, but I’ve always seen Gregory as an immature, high-strung twit.  But that’s me.

So…is he going to be tough on the incoming administration?

Yeah…this guy will be level-headed and balanced enough for someone to watch and learn something from his program.
