Merry Christmas

Palace of Saint Nicholas in the Moon
Christmas Morning ~ Mark Twain

My Dear Susy Clemens,

I have received and read all the letters which you and your little sister have written me . . . . I can read your and your baby sister's jagged and fantastic marks without any trouble at all. But I had trouble with those letters which you dictated through your mother and the nurses, for I am a foreigner and cannot read English writing well. You will find that I made no mistakes about the things which you and the baby ordered in your own letters--I went down your chimney at midnight when you were asleep and delivered them all myself--and kissed both of you, too . . . . But . . . there were . . . one or two small orders which I could not fill because we ran out of stock . . . .

There was a word or two in your mama's letter which . . .I took to be "a trunk full of doll's clothes." Is that it? I will call at your kitchen door about nine o'clock this morning to inquire. But I must not see anybody and I must not speak to anybody but you. When the kitchen doorbell rings, George must be blindfolded and sent to the door. You must tell George he must walk on tiptoe and not speak--otherwise he will die someday. Then you must go up to the nursery and stand on a chair or the nurse's bed and put your ear to the speaking tube that leads down to the kitchen and when I whistle through it you must speak in the tube and say, "Welcome, Santa Claus!" Then I will ask whether it was a trunk you ordered or not. If you say it was, I shall ask you what color you want the trunk to be . . . and then you must tell me every single thing in detail which you want the trunk to contain. Then when I say "Good-by and a merry Christmas to my little Susy Clemens," you must say "Good-by, good old Santa Claus, I thank you very much." Then you must go down into the library and make George close all the doors that open into the main hall, and everybody must keep still for a little while. I will go to the moon and get those things and in a few minutes I will come down the chimney that belongs to the fireplace that is in the hall--if it is a trunk you want--because I couldn't get such a thing as a trunk down the nursery chimney, you know . . . .If I should leave any snow in the hall, you must tell George to sweep it into the fireplace, for I haven't time to do such things. George must not use a broom, but a rag--else he will die someday . . . . If my boot should leave a stain on the marble, George must not holystone it away. Leave it there always in memory of my visit; and whenever you look at it or show it to anybody you must let it remind you to be a good little girl. Whenever you are naughty and someone points to that mark which your good old Santa Claus's boot made on the marble, what will you say, little sweetheart?

Good-by for a few minutes, till I come down to the world and ring the kitchen doorbell.

Your loving Santa Claus

To the woman in the plaza standing under the patio umbrella having a smoke. I just wanted to share the umbrella. It's raining. You don't have to be all offended by everything either. There is a reason you remain unmarried. You might as well have a "NOW" bumper sticker plastered on your forehead. BTW ... You're better looking from the backside anyway. Try being a little nice now and then. You're just embarassing your Mother.

UPDATE: A Response
To the man with the audacity to approach me under the umbrella on the plaza. Are you some kind of occufreak? This is my umbrella and you swagger about as if you've just given birth to a litter of kittens. Can't you see I have these earbuds in? I'm not responding. Good Morning? ...Really? ... Is that the best you can come up with you moron. There's a vacant umbrella at the far end of the court. You can occupy that.

Need to make a political contribution to your favorite libtard without union dues or affecting operations? Giganto Corporation (The Company) Board members came up with a plan to "save money" The plan is simple. It's a shared experience. Give everyone 3 days off at Thanksgiving. Unpaid by default unless you have something over 40 hours of PTO. For each 1000 employees you score approximately 300,000 dollars to donate to SCOAMF.

Sounded like a great idea in the boardroom. Right?

Implementation = FAIL. The SCOAMF couldn't have done a better job.

Is there anything not blindingly stupid about this? You put yourself in a position to take from someone and resentment is the only result. For the individual this represents 30% of the net income for the specified pay period… just before Christmas. The default selection as unpaid leave cannot be changed. If you worked that period before the holiday as developers often do. it's unpaid. Have well over 120 friggin hours of PTO, Trying to support 2 friggin households, Child Support, trying to payoff the friggin lawyer so you can get heck out. It's unpaid by default and cannot be changed.

Congratulations Giganto Corporation. You did it.

If you're not already spitting nails Go read another one over at IOTW

UPDATE: There is no "Christmas" Party here at Giganto Corporation either. Just so you get a sense of how it is here.

Very Rare and Unusual Sixteen-Shot Brass-Barreled Ring-Trigger Percussion Pepperbox Pistol by M. Cerwenka, c. 1860
3 1/4-inch brass barrels, framed of a single piece of brass, each barrel with a slight taper (an arrangement or orientation pointing them towards a fixed point some distance from the shooter), inscribed on one barrel M. CERWENKA, each engraved at breech with numbers surrounded by scroll-work, floral engraved muzzles, the barrels mounted with a loading-rod, iron-breech with tang engraved with a hunter and his game, walnut grip set with brass plates, ring-trigger



To the woman in the VW Passat with the Tolerance and Obama 2012 bumper stickers. You sidled up 2 lanes of traffic before cutting me off near the top of the hill. Did you see that? I keep a car length or two open in front of me because its raining and because of the traffic. Weaving back and forth between lanes is not helping either missy. The bumper stickers you wear so proudly on your car tell me everything I need to know about you. Your version of tolerance is different than mine I guess.

Nice Rides

1969 Camaro RS/SS buyers could choose from five V8 engines ranging from 350 CID to 396 CID, with between 300 to 375 horses beneath the hood, all with a three-speed manual. However, buyers could also opt to have their dealer install a 427 CID engine able to produce 430 HP.

69 RS/SS models had special vacuum-operated headlight covers with three translucent louvers, as well as headlight washers. Fender striping, back-up lights below the bumper, chrome wheel-well moldings, simulated rear louvers, a black grille and rocker panels, and accented air vents and taillights distinguished the RS package. Both the front and rear quarter panels as well as the grille and steering wheel bore special RS badging.

SAN DIEGO ---- A 75-year-old man confessed Saturday to robbing a Clairemont Mesa bank branch twice in the past month, according to the San Diego Police Department.
But San Diego police made it clear that their 75-year-old confessed robber was not the "Geezer Bandit," an elderly man who is believed to have robbed 16 banks across California in 30 months, most recently a week ago in San Luis Obispo.
Police said Albert Wallake walked into the U.S. Bank location at 5407 Balboa Avenue about 10:25 a.m. and told the manager he was turning himself in for the past armed robberies, which occurred Dec. 2 and Nov. 15. The bank's manager called police and Wallake was arrested without incident, police said.

Nice Rides

The 1970 GTO could be had with engines displacing up to a full 455 cubic inches. The basic 455 was rated at "only" 360 hp, but it made a stout 500 pound-feet of torque. That's more twist than in any previous GTO, and other driveline components were strengthened to withstand the punishment, including the adoption of GM's "12-bolt" rear end. The 455 was also available with Ram Air, though it wasn't part of the Ram Air III and Ram Air IV family (both of which continued in '70 on the GTO in 400 cubic-inch form, with the III rated at 366 horses and the IV at 370). The two-barrel 400 was excised from the GTO program for '70, and the base engine became a 350-horse 400 four-barrel.

As the 1966 GTO's body was a revision of the '65's, so too was the '70's an extensive reworking of the '69's. It had the same dimensions and window shapes, but was more voluptuous in the details. The new front end took the four headlights out of the grille area and set them in deep bezels to either side. The front bumper continued to be made of the color-keyed Endura material.

Bloggy Stuff

Being minuscule and conservative is not so bad. As the one who's name shall not be mentioned here would say, "We're all Doomed". Not so much I say. There was an ebook going around a while back with interviews of seriously heavyweight bloggers explaining how to make it in the blogosphere. I'm still waiting for my copy. "Hello". While I'm waiting I thought I'd do a list of bloggy stuff for the minuscule blogger to get noticed occasionally.

1 Read the News
Read everything you can find off fellow bloggers, big or small does not matter.

2 Write
Learn to write well. Make your point and be done with it. It serves no purpose to make your writing over complicated. A bit of humor on occasion isn't a hinder at all. Try to post something everyday.

3 Swiping Content
Properly attribute the source of the content you have stolen unless it can't be traced.

4 Your Picture
A recent photo of yourself on the sidebar doesn't hurt. It lets your occasional passerbys know you're not an axe murderer.

5 Links and Comments
Link em up. Pick a couple blogs with similar interests. Comment occasionally and you'll hit the blogroll. Also ... don't be butthurt if no one comments at your place

That's it. If anyone wants on the The Association of Minuscule to Middling Conservative Bloggers blogroll, just let me know in the email on the side bar.

What is a BOSS 302? It's a car, right? No, it's an engine. Well, yes, it's an engine and a car. Actually, it's car, a Ford Mustang, named for an engine, a special purpose built race engine. The Ford BOSS 302 Mustang, built for model years 1969 and 1970, is named for its engine.
So which came first the car or the engine? The car. The Ford Mustang was introduced on April 17, 1964. In the 1960's, Ford was heavily involved in racing. The catch phrase was, "Win on Sunday, sell on Monday." In 1966 and 1967, Ford, with the help of Carroll Shelby and his Shelby-American company, raced Mustangs in and won the Sports Car Club of America (SCCA) Trans-American (Trans-Am) Sedan Racing series.

General Motors' Chevrolet division introduced their Camaro Z/28 to compete with the Mustang in the 1967 model year. Not only did Camaro compete on the street and in the sales showrooms, it competed in the Trans-Am series as well. In 1968, Camaro won the series championship. It was a dismal year for the Mustang. Mustang's failure to win the 1968 championship was blamed on a new engine known as the "Tunnel-Port." For 1969, Ford had to do something to win back the Trans-Am championship.

Actually, something was already being done even before the 1968 Trans-Am race season started. Ford was in the process of developing a new 351 cubic inch engine known as the "Cleveland" for 1970. It was so named because it would be produced at the Cleveland engine plant instead of the Windsor engine plant. Someone in Engine Engineering came up with the idea of putting the Cleveland heads on the Tunnel-Port block. It was tested and the results were good enough to continue development of the new 302 cubic engine as the Tunnel-Port started show its shortcomings.

One part of the SCCA rules stated the manufacturers had to sell what they raced. It was Larry Shinoda, a former GM stylist, now working at Ford who created the car's unique styling and came up with the name BOSS 302 for the car and engine that would go into production so Ford could race it in 1969 and 1970. The BOSS 302 was offered in the 1969 and 1970 Mercury Cougar Eliminator as well. The Eliminator was also styled by Larry Shinoda.

Ford came close but did not win the Trans-Am title for 1969 with the BOSS 302 Mustang. The BOSS 302 Mustang did win the Trans-Am championship in 1970 and entered the history books.

WASHINGTON (AP) -- A newly discovered planet is eerily similar to Earth and is sitting outside our solar system in what seems to be the ideal place for life, except for one hitch. It's a bit too big.
The planet is smack in the middle of what astronomers call the Goldilocks zone, that hard to find place that's not too hot, not too cold, where water, which is essential for life, doesn't freeze or boil. And it has a shopping mall-like surface temperature of near 72 degrees, scientists say.
The planet's confirmation was announced Monday by NASA along with other discoveries by its Kepler telescope, which was launched on a planet-hunting mission in 2009.

Gather up all your environitwits and go. Don't come back. Nice knowing you. Don't bother writing. Have a nice time.

Sunday Morning Reads

In his time, there was no more popular national figure than Theodore Roosevelt. It was not just the energy he brought to every political office he held or his unshakable moral convictions that made him so popular, or even his status as a bonafide war hero—the man who led the Rough Riders up San Juan Hill in Cuba during the Spanish-American war. Most important, Theodore Roosevelt was loved by the people because this scion of a privileged New York family loved America and Americans.And yet, according to Bill Brands, if we look at the private Roosevelt without blinders, we see a man whose great public strengths hid enormous personal deficiencies. His highly exaggerated, and often uncompromising ways drove many of his business and personal friends crazy. His historical writings, which Brands quotes from extensively, are nothing if not a portrait of a boy’s endless macho fantasies. He was often so full of himself that his speeches and writings were the frequent subject of fierce satire in their time.Even more revealing, according to Brands, was Roosevelt as son, brother, husband, and father. According to Brands, to understand both the public and private Roosevelt one must understand the impact of his father’s death while he was still a child, denying him the opportunity to come to terms with his own manhood. When his first wife Alice died of complications from childbirth, leaving behind a baby daughter Alice, his response was to run away to shoot Buffalo in the west, leaving the newborn infant to the care of his unmarried sister Bamie. When his second wife Edith was seriously, perhaps fatally ill, he left her to fight in the Spanish-American war. His only concern when his brother Elliot, who had been his only friend as a child, became an alcoholic was to hide the news from the public. Determined that his four sons would not dishonor his belief that men, to achieve their manhood, must test themselves in war, he arranged for each to serve, often in the frontlines, during WWI. His youngest son Quentin would die in that cause.Beautifully written, powerfully moved by its subject, TR is nonetheless a biography more appropriate to today’s critical times.

Picking Lemons

A woman of Coral Springs , Florida decided to take one of the jobs that most Americans are not willing to do.
The woman applying for a job in a Florida lemon grove seemed to be far too qualified for the job. She had a liberal arts degree from the University of Michigan and had worked as a social worker and school teacher.

The foreman frowned and said, "I have to ask you, have you had any ...actual experience in picking lemons?"

"Well, as a matter of fact, I have! I've been divorced three times, owned 2 Chryslers and voted for Obama.
