Chili Cheese Flavored Corn Dogs are the perfect food.
It’s a hot dog filled with cheese. on a stick, with a chili flavored corn batter coating. Food can not get any better!
I tasted my new found love at a food show and I immediately went to a food wholesaler and ordered a case. The cost was approximately fifty cents a chili cheese corn dog.
Not bad for the perfect food.
It is Halloween and I will be Trick or Treating for maybe the last time. James is now 11 and quickly going on 12. He is very close to mandatory retirement for Trick or Treaters.
Some parents may let their children T or T as long as they want, but I don’t. One reason is; the boys in my family tend to shave at an early age and I refuse to take a mustached Ninja out Trick or Treating. The other reason is; we don’t really need the candy bad enough to go door to door begging for it.
My kids have all the candy they ever need on a weekly basis so they pick through the Halloween candy for the “good stuff” and then the rest of it sits in the pantry till Christmas.
So it’s time to retire and let the other kids in the neighborhood walk around getting the non chocolate items nobody wants.
So next year it will be a night and home followed by a day in Walmart buying all the left over candy at a huge discount.
Hey – I said the kids didn’t need anymore candy – I never mentioned me!
November 4, 2008 America again will choose a new President.
The choice is clear;
Barack Obama or John McCain
A black man or a white man (McCain)
A young man or an old man (McCain 72)
A Democrat or a Republican (McCain)
A hairy headed man or a bald man (McCain you aren’t fooling us with the comb over)
A tall man or a short man (McCain – Five foot six)
A man born in America or a man born in a foreign country. (McCain – Panama Canal Zone)
These are stark and drastic differences but do they mean anything? I would say, maybe the party affiliation means something but the rest is irrelevant.
So what does matter?
Both these men are patriots. Why else would they forgo the millions they could be earning to serve in the U.S. Senate? So that’s not an issue.
Neither of these men are socialists or communists or many of the other labels fear mongers have thrown around. So that’s not an issue.
Both these men are Christians but in America, the God you choose, should not have to be the God I choose. Our land was founded by people fleeing religious persecution and apparently the persecutors have followed us here. Let’s not allow them to chase us from another continent. Stand firm on your religious beliefs but allow me to do the same. If we do that, we can defeat the hatred of those believing to be holier than thou. So that’s not an issue.
John McCain and Barack Obama both want what is best for America. They may differ in the means to the end but they seek the same goals.
This, I believe, is the issue.
John McCain wishes to use the methods of George Bush. Barack Obama chooses a path closer to Bill Clinton.
McCain will make the rich richer. Believing the rich will share their wealth with the lower classes through higher wages and better benefits.
Obama will financially empower the lower classes. Believing the less fortunate will share their money with the wealthy by being more active consumers.
It’s a simple difference of opinion.
If you believe the Bush model worked over the last eight years then you should vote for John McCain.
If you believe the Clinton model worked better, in the previous eight years, than you should vote for Obama.
You are about to hire the next leader of the free world with your vote. You, just like any other employer, should stick to the questions which define a good steward for America. In other words -judge them by the criteria you would want judged. Not by their religion, not by their associates and especially not by the definitions of their opponents. Can you imagine ever getting a job if the employer based it on the views of the other applicants?
Judge them solely on their plan for America.
If we all do that, we can rest comfortably on Tuesday night, knowing we have picked the best man to lead The United States.
I am happy to report that the mystery sound from my computer has stopped. I neither had it repaired or hit it with a hammer so how do I explain it?
Has to be Halloween and goblins.
Normally I do not take part in such nonsense but in this case it is obviously a super natural event that has taken place inside my computer. Either that or the part which was making the noise is no longer functioning. I don’t like that option, so I am going with the ghosts and goblin theory.
Either way I can now again write with the hilarity of Twain. The yarn spinning of Hemingway. The wisdom of Franklin. The typing skills of Cheetah.
I bought my computer’s CPU (Central Processing Unit ) one year and 17 days ago. My warranty was for one year. Yesterday my computer started making this noise like a bicycle with playing cards in the spokes.
I would guess it is the cooling fan. I looked in the unit and it was still spinning. Maybe it’s dirty? I took apart the case and blew it out with compressed air. Put it back together, started it up – same noise.
It does seem to be cooling, so what’s a little noise?
Irritating – that’s what it is!
The sound is driving me nuts.
Some people would say the sound is about twenty years too late. Those are not nice people, even if we do share a common last name.
Nuts or not, I do know it’s hard to write with my usual brilliance. I must now resign myself to the fact I will have to put our mediocre blog posts, like the rest of the world, while the sound is distracting me.
So when you log in one soon morning and find one of my usual titillating posts about the merits of women golfers wearing short skirts you will know one of two things have happened.
- I have taken in the computer to be repaired
- I have had too much coffee today and hit the CPU with a hammer
One sounds more reasonable but two gets me a 320 gb hard drive 2 gb of ram and a bright new shiny motherboard.
I told you there is advantages to being addicted to coffee.
After my post about husbands not sending enough wife pictures lately a couple of readers stepped to the plate and hit home runs.

Dancing with the Star’s judge Carrie Ann Inaba got it right last night when she lamented about Cloris Leachman still being in the competition and Toni Braxton being out.
Carrie Ann was right but she didn’t mention that a great deal of blame rests on her. She was a champion of Cloris’s nonsense and gave her inflated scores helping the octogenarian to stay around long after she deserves.
at least last night carrie ann tried to make it right by giving Leachman a closer to reality - 5. maybe now we can get the old bat off the show.
In bad news, blonde cutie Julianne Hough will miss some time with surgery to remove her appendix. She will be replaced by the slinky Edyta. Not a terrible trade off but Julianne is still our favorite.
Two-time “Dancing With the Stars” champ Julianne Hough, who was hospitalized last week with stomach pains, has been diagnosed with endometriosis and will undergo surgery to remove her appendix.”After consulting with her doctor, this was the course of treatment that was recommended,” a statement on Hough’s Web site says, according to People magazine.Hough, 20, who also is a budding country music artist, announced last night that she will not dance with her partner Cody Linley in next week’s show. Instead, Linley will appear with professional dancer Edyta Sliwinska, who was voted off with her partner, comedian Jeffrey Ross, earlier in the season.Endometriosis, a relatively common – but often painful – medical condition found in 5 percent to 10 percent of women, is the development of uterine-lining tissue outside the uterus on the surfaces of organs, such as the appendix, in the pelvis or abdomen.
