Lance Bass of `N Sync -- Who Knew!?!

Lance Bass, band member of 'N Sync, says he's gay and in a "very stable" relationship with a reality show star. Bass, who formed 'N Sync with Justin Timberlake, JC Chasez, Joey Fatone and Chris Kirkpatrick, tells People magazine that he didn't earlier disclose his sexuality because he didn't want to affect the group's popularity.

Seen on a bumper sticker

Modern aircraft have heaps of redundancy built
into their design. Why do you think they have TWO wings for example?

More Bumper Stickers

Now that food has replaced sex in my life, I can't even get into my own pants.

Marriage changes passion. Suddenly you're in bed with a relative.

I saw a woman wearing a sweat shirt with "Guess" on it. So I said "Implants?" She hit me.

How come we choose from just two people to run for president and over fifty for Miss America?

A good friend will come and bail you out of jail...but, a true friend will be sitting next to you saying, "Wow...that was fun!"

I signed up for an exercise class and was told to wear loose-fitting clothing. If I HAD any loose-fitting clothing, I wouldn't have signed up in the first place!

When I was young we used to go "skinny dipping," now I just "chunky dunk."

Don't argue with an idiot; people watching may not be able to tell the difference.

Wouldn't it be nice if whenever we messed up our life we could simply press 'Ctrl Alt Delete' and start all over? AMEN, AMEN !!

Wouldn't you know it... Brain cells come and brain cells go, but FATcells live forever.

Starr Jones - House Hunter?!?

It appears that Starr Jones is hosting House Hunters on HGTV tonight.

Ah, wee, now we're cookin'!!

Google Wants All Your Data? Cool!

So, Google is working on a project called Platypus that seems to be the same as GDrive. The idea is that any work you do on a computer gets synced to your Google storage, any work that you do on the web gets synced to your computer, and if a computer crashes, the data can be downloaded from Google in a heartbeat. This is great if you work on many different computers and want the data to be the same on all of them.

This is future, and for now, Orb is doing fine for me, to allow me to get my files from home whereever I'm at.....

Joke

A visitor to a mental hospital asked a doctor how they decide whether to admit a new patient. "We fill up a bathtub and offer them a spoon, a teacup, or a bucket to empty the tub." The visitor nodded. "And a sane person chooses the bucket?"

"No," said the doctor. "A sane person pulls the drain plug. Would you like a bed near the window?

CNN Expose on North Korea

Did you see the report? Hidden camera, journalist talking, recordings of beatings, and all..... The conditions are horrible, yet NK leadership keeps telling the world how utopian life is there.

CNN sent a query about the conditions shown on the film to the government. Their reply: How can anyone be sure that the filmed footage was of North Korea?

This from a government out of touch with reality, IMO. Remember that satellite they tried to send up a few years ago, but it didn't even get into orbit? Well, to this day, they claim it is in space and broadcasting speeches from government leaders.

Too sad.

Gordon Biersch Brewery -- Beer Sampler! WooHoo!

If you're ever in Tyson's Corner, check out this restaurant in the mall. Really good food, sure.

But the beer sampler was my favorite. I tried it and found several really good beers that they make on the premises. What they do is bring a booklet with 6 beers listed, and along side the booklet, they present the beers in individual shot glasses. Gave me a chance to sample their wares, and also to order one that I really liked. One was a "coffee" beer that's really good.....

Check it out at http://www.gordonbiersch.com/restaurants/ -- or better yet, get up from behind the computer and check it out in person.
