People of Walmart, Part II

Here we go again...courtesy of an email forward, credit to People of Walmart.

"He is like a parachute slowing down that drag-racer!! Seriously, pick the kid up or buy him the candy bar he wants. I’m not sure what point you are trying to make by dragging him across the floor of a Walmart."

 Manny Ramirez's twin brother.

When you got it, flaunt it!!

Who doesn't want a picture with the Easter Llama??

He's a big Daisy Duke fan. (He must work out.)

I hear you can get a great deal on these kind of skirts.  Hundreds of them for just a few bucks!

Meet Al Bundy's sister.

"It’s like a garbage bag filled with creamed corn and door knobs." 

It's never hot enough to wear that out in public sweetie.

She's here asking if there are any more shampoos/conditioners in the back.  

 "This guy looks like he just had sex with a rainbow inside a bag of Skittles."

What's Worse

Sad story all around on this one.  A Las Vegas "pack rat" went missing, or so the husband thought.  As the story unfolds, the missing wife was found in the house...FOUR MONTHS LATER.  

Despite help from the local police force and search crews, the missing wife was not found.  It wasn't until the husband spotted her feet while he was walking around the house.
So I ask you, what's worse:

1) You go through all the efforts, worry, etc trying to find your wife, only to find out she never left the house.  (That's a lot of...stuff, to be able to not notice her).

2) Living with a corpse for FOUR MONTHS.  Wow.

3) How bad is the "normal" odor in this house so that a decomposing body could go unnoticed for that long?  In the story, there is mention that police dogs couldn't even pick up the scent from the body.

More From Jack

Recently I was bathing Jackson and apparently he was not in the mood to be bathed.  Here's our conversation:

Jackson: "Daddy, can you not use soap to wash me.  I don't want you to use soap."

Me: "Sorry, I'm using soap."
[PAUSE for dramatic effect]

Jackson: (huffs) "This is ridiculous!"

Me: (trying not to laugh) "What's ridiculous?"

Jackson: "THIS BATH!"

Happy birthday son!

There are some funnies plates found here.  I kept the rating on this post at an appropriate level.  Here are some of the ones I found funny.

The 1 mpg is on the freeway.

I hear this car backfires often.

You know you just sang this song in your head.

If you don't get it, there is an M and an A added on.

I know a few people who could claim this plate.

These are tame compared to some others.

And is fun to drive too.

I like this one the best.

Interesting Quotes

BAD:  From Nancy Pelosi (direct quote found here) on the Health Care Bill: "But we have to pass the bill so that you can find out what is in it, away from the fog of the controversy."

It's always best to pass legislation prior to reading it, right?

GOOD:  From JFK: "Ask not what your country can do for you; ask what you can do for your country."

You mean making a career of living off of welfare isn't a good thing?  Don't rely on government support.  Do it yourself!

SAD: From OUR President Obama (direct quote found here): "It is wonderful to be back in Oregon," Obama said. "Over the last 15 months, we’ve traveled to every corner of the United States. I’ve now been in 57 states? I think one left to go. Alaska and Hawaii, I was not allowed to go to even though I really wanted to visit, but my staff would not justify it."

President George W Bush had his famous dumb quotes.  This has got to be one of Obama's worst.

SO TRUE: John Wayne: "Life's tought...it's even tougher if you're stupid."

Education is a good thing.

40 Billionaires Donated Half Their Wealth to Charity

How amazing would it feel to be able to donate half of (at least) a BILLION dollars to charities?  Hope that the 40 people on board to give away an estimated $600 BILLION stay true.  Buffett says he's giving away 99%.  

Out of the 40 billionaires listed, not many names are listed.

Tiger Woods is giving away half of his wealth too.  His charity of choice is The Elin "Keep Your Mouth Shut" Nordegren Fund.

Way to go Tiger.

Best Burger Joints

If you are ever driving through Pasadena and you find yourself craving a burger, man are you in luck.  Pasadena has a variety of great burger joints. 

Here are a few to check out:

1) In-N-Out.  A classic place to grab a double-double, animal style, fries and a shake.  We have two locations in Bakersfield...which is nice.

2) Lucky Boy.  Another very popular place with my high school friends.  They also have good breakfast burritos.

These are good, but I prefer my breakfast burrito from another location.

3) Wonder Burger.  This is the another good alternative to the national fast food, but I'd rank it last out of the places listed here.

4) TOPS.  This is my favorite.  Growing up we went there A LOT!  I try to figure a way to go there every time I'm in the Pasadena area.  I highly suggest the 1/4 lb. Bacon Cheeseburger.  During my college years, I'd always take my friends to TOPS to eat.  Never a complaint...except that their AMAZING breakfast burritos are too hot to scarf down right away. 

MMMMM, breakfast burritos from TOPS!!

If you are in a little further east of Pasadena, they have another location in Azusa, T Burgers.  Different name, same great food.

Oh, one more thing...when you go to TOPS (or T Burgers) and order fries, onion rings or zucchini, only order one for you and your family or friends.  They are BIG.

Bon appetit!

Fight for More Rights!!! (Expand Civil Unions, Leave Marriage Alone)

So Prop 8 is overturned by a judge today.  Here is my understanding on the Biblical purpose of marriage:

Marriage was originally designed, by God, for a man and a woman to be wed.   Not man-man, woman-woman, man-women, men-women, man-animal, woman-animal, etc.  In Genesis 1:18-25, God brought forth all the animals and none met the criteria.  So He then made a WOMAN, not another man, to fulfill His design for marriage.

Marriage is a covenant, sacred in nature.  As the Bible says, "They shall become one flesh." (Gen. 1:24)  Here's a link that discusses the question, "Is Marriage a Covenant?"

God talks about husbands/wives throughout the Bible.  There is no mention about husband/husband or wife/wife.  There is mention of man/man, woman/woman sexually involved, but it is an abomination (Leviticus 18:22,23).

As far as gay marriage being okay with God...my understanding of scripture does not allow for that.  My understanding is the Bible does not give any indication that choosing to be gay is okay.  I try to know right from wrong based on the Bible.  My understanding of the Bible leads me to the conclusion that homosexuality is a sin. Lord knows my sins, mistakes, screw ups, and flaws are numerous. Being gay just is not one that I struggle with.  

Switching over to our society today, disregarding any Biblical implications...

Our government has attached benefits to being "Married".  Gays have been fighting for "equal rights" compared to hetero married people.  So my question is...

...why don't they fight to expand their "Civil Union Rights"???

Why do they want Marriage as the title?  If it's due to the rights the government allows for married people, doesn't fighting for expansion of what gays already have make more sense?  Or does it come down to wanting the title of "Marriage" because you want it to be more socially acceptable?
