Full Metal Jacket Reach Around: The Catching Up on a Sunday Edition
Steve and I have been trying to take advantage of a kicked back weekend; I went out to see my mom yesterday for a bit, then Steve and I went to Prime Rib night at the Barksdale Club for dinner. We called it an early night and today I worked on those webpages until I thought my head would explode and then headed out to the grocery store. This afternoon I still have a little more work to do, but mostly I hope to get caught up on some reading and blogging.
Speaking of blogging, let's see what I can sift out of the web this morning:
Pirate's Cove has a personal account of the Glenn Beck rally. How in the world can the numbers estimate vary sooo widely? Doug Ross attempts to nail that one down. Left Coast Rebel has LOTS of pictures. No Sheeples Here adds her own perspective as well.
American Power takes on Obama's weekend address in which he claims credit for Iraq.
Mind Numbed Robot had quite the birthday celebration!
Sister Toldjah has Rubio's Republican response to Obama's weekly address yesterday in case you missed it, and I did, so I'm glad she posted it.
I'm glad I'm not the only one struggling through August; Professor Jacobson has similar feelings. He did pick up on an interesting piece of subliminal deception, howerver. Ed Driscoll joins in that discussion.
SWAC Girl has got fall fever.
And then there was the discussion at Adrienne's place over the unfortunate photo of Obama on his bicycle. Little Miss Attila nails it as does Bride of Rove.
The Camp of the Saints is spinning some good tunes. And speaking of....A Cop's Watch went to see Meatloaf!
The Daley Gator picks up on a post on The Green Police. Woe to the flunkie who has to dig through my garbage...
Sandy has met her limits with the Shreveport Slimes over their editorial cartoon today, and echos what I hear many folks say. I haven't taken the paper since 2003 and have not missed it.
Carol's Closet also noticed Charlie Crist's duplicity.
Grandpa John succeeds in simply grossing me out.
I've often wondered about Red's blog's name, and now I get it. THAT's a corndog!
Pundette has an excellent roundup of newsy bits.
Wyblog is marking his calendar for Obama's next speech to schoolchildren.
And with that I've got to cut it off; I've been on this laptop all day long and need to get my dog's tennis ball out from under the couch; he's crying like he's lost his last friend.
