580 Ride

Yesterday I was behind a beautiful blue truck on 580.

On the tailgate was some writing and I read it

Our business is based on Satan.

Or at least that was what I thought it said.

When I looked again, it actually said

Our business is based on Service.

I guess that is better.

Happy Birthday to me

Today was my birthday. My beloved and I spent it in San Francisco with friends, not too many better ways to spend it.

Oh, there was this little parade. About, some estimates say, a million people at this little parade, some dykes on bikes, women in uniform, drag queens that look better than I do in heels, lots and lots of stuff to look at.

But the best part? Just being surrounded by people that love me.

Of course, there was my beloved.

Chief Matron-Mare-son, friend without end.

Irene, need to see more of you.

Spouse A & Spouse B visiting from North Carolina.

Joyce & Candice, always a pleasure and never often enough.

Susan & Anne, friends forever, especially since Susan made that vegan cake! Yum.

Putting those ugly shoes to work

Today my beloved I take a ride to Yosemite, one of the most beautiful places on earth.

Tomorrow is my big hike for the LLS to find a cure for blood cancers.

Thanks to everyone that donated to this cause.

Hopefully I'll post some pictures when we get back.

Now I am pissed off

OK, I get spam from every dating site on the internet and I have blogged before about getting mail from:

Meet other Young Christians


Meet other black singles


Meet other Jewish singles

I am none of the above, but now I am really pissed off with this one:

Meet other big beautiful singles!!

Now you have crossed the line - leave me alone.

As millions of of gallons pour out of that well in the Gulf Coast some people are actually suggesting that a "small" nuclear explosion be used to seal the well. A "small" nuclear explosion?

A "small" nuclear explosion?

Somehow the words small and nuclear just don't seem to go together to me.

Money, money,money

Just watching the news and a report on the election coming up next week. There are three people running in the GOP senate race. All three have raised about the same amount of money, around 2.5 million dollars. One of them has stopped his advertising in the week before the election, some feel due to a lack of funds. It seems that one of the candidates has pumped 5.5 million dollars of her own money into her campaign.

In the race for the GOP nomination for governor both candidates have poured millions of their own dollars into the race. I think one of them is out about 5 million and the other a lot more.

Now this race is just to get the nomination to run in November. How much of their own money will they come up with when they run against somebody from the other party for the actual job.

It just makes me think that a candidate should not be able to use their own money to finance their campaign. They should have to raise every dime from the people they want to represent. I just think that eventually only the rich will hold public office if this continues. Oh, am I too late in this concern?
