Well the deal was Impish was to write the openings and I would do the rest. However “Twinkletoes” our very own “Lord of the Prance” did his “best” Brian Boitano imitation (Just think about a dragon trying to ice skate, much less gracefully to music!) on a patch of ice yesterday afternoon culmination in a “double dignity dip” flat on the ice. Ergo no comments from Dragon for opening…well ok there WERE multiple ones about winter, ice, lack of sanding and his intense dislike of gravity, but none that were fit for publication at least.

Little known facts about the Catholic Church in Las Vegas :
There are more churches in Las Vegas than casinos. During Sunday services at the Offertory, some worshipers contribute casino chips as opposed to cash. Some are sharing their winnings – some are hoping to win. Since they get chips from so many different casinos, and they are worth money, the Catholic churches are required to send all the chips into the diocese for sorting. Once sorted into the respective casino chips, one junior priest takes the chips and makes the rounds to the casinos turning chips into cash. And he, of course, is known as ‘The Chip Monk’.
I Hear the President’s Last Visit to the Troops Didn’t Go So Well
Thanks to K-Squared for that one.
Houston suffered some fairly serious (for this far south) icing on Friday. When we finally thawed out there had been over 1000 accidents (most of them multi vehicle) and 700 Emergency Services calls all for less than a 1/4 inch of black ice. Just imagine if we had gotten conditions like are show above in Brazil Indiana!

Why Men Wear Earrings
Did you ever wonder why earrings became so popular with men?
A man is at work one day when he notices that his co-worker is wearing an earring.
The man knows his co-worker to be a normally conservative fellow, and is curious about his sudden change in “fashion sense”
The man walks up to him and says, “I didn’t know you were into earrings.”
“Don’t make such a big deal, it’s only an earring,” he replies sheepishly.
His friend falls silent for a few minutes, but then his curiosity prods him to ask, “So, how long have you been wearing one?”
“Ever since my wife found it in my truck!”
(I always wondered how this trend got started.)
and now we know….
The Mount Vernon Statement
We recommit ourselves to the ideas of the American Founding. Through the Constitution, the Founders created an enduring framework of limited government based on rule of law. They sought to secure national independence, provide for economic opportunity, establish true religious liberty and maintain a flourishing society of republican self-government.
A Constitutional conservatism based on first principles provides the framework for a consistent and meaningful policy agenda.
* It applies the principle of limited government based on the rule of law to every proposal.
* It honors the central place of individual liberty in American politics and life.
* It encourages free enterprise, the individual entrepreneur, and economic reforms grounded in market solutions.
* It supports America’s national interest in advancing freedom and opposing tyranny in the world and prudently considers what we can and should do to that end.
* It informs conservatism’s firm defense of family, neighborhood, community, and faith.
* If we are to succeed in the critical political and policy battles ahead, we must be certain of our purpose. We must begin by retaking and resolutely defending the high ground of America’s founding principles.
Sounds like a decent platform for a presidential campaign!
