Yer Friday Funny:  That Song’s About WHAT?!!

Here ya go: listen as Uncle John sings us “The Dildo Song”. OK, people: get yer minds out of the gutter. The song’s about a community on Newfoundland. Seriously. Don’t believe me? Here’s a picture of the road sign for the community. And here it is on Google Maps. Per Google Maps, there’s also apparently […]

A Blast from the Past, Rarities Edition – Part 9

Nothing new from DPAA this week regarding accounting for US personnel who had previously been declared MIA/POW. So this week you’re stuck with this instead. Read on at your own risk. (smile) . . . Just about done with a 4,500 mile trip well west of the Rio Grande and back. I’m at the final […]

“The Boss” to Leave US

Bruce Springsteen What do Whoopie Goldberg, Snoop Dogg, Cher, Miley Cyrus, Lena Dunham, Babs Streisand, Jon Stewart, and now Bruce Springsteen have in common?

A Long-Distance Dedication . . . .

Nothing new from DPAA this week – their only news release concerned a Marine they’d previously identified on their “Recently Accounted For” web page a couple of months ago and included in a “No Longer Missing” article at the time.

A Blast from the Past, Advertising Edition (Part 2)

Some people don’t like commercials. I can’t say I care that much for most recent ones; I find most recent commercials boring or stupid. But a few I’ve seen over the years are classics.

A Blast From the Past – So, Just Who Was That Old Coot?

If you grew up in – or spent much time in – the US South, you probably heard the phrase “drunk as Cooter Brown”. I know I have. But just who was Cooter Brown? And why was he immortalized as the standard by which drunks are judged? Until fairly recently I didn’t know. The story […]
