Well, we’ve had some volunteers to help fill out our weather from across the country. We’ve gotten everything from just a couple word answers to some pretty interesting sends. So, here, for out first group issue is our inputs:
North: Still waiting for someone to volunteer
Northeast: Still waiting for someone to volunteer
Southeast: Dad in Bonita Springs, FL was very concerned about the excessive cold to hit his area. It got all the way down to 68 degrees and only made it up to 84. If it was a little warmer out it would have been a great day for golf. Clear skies and a light wind. Dad, this one is for you:
South: Lethal Leprechaun himself has the southern report from Houston Texas. Houston was a bit cooler than you’d think for being so far south. 67 for the high and 46 for the low doesn’t sound like south Texas weather to me. But, it looks like he had no rain and basically, a nice day.
Southwest: Jack Daniels from Yuma, AZ has this to say:overnight low 58 degrees, projected high 84, NW wind, 4-5 mph, mostly cloudy. Not bad Jack, looks like you’ve got the high temp for the day.
West: Still waiting for someone to volunteer
Northwest: comes to us from Tom in Turner, OR. Here’s what he had to say, complete with pictures!! Good morning from the Pacific Northwest. After a week of heavy rain and high winds we’re going to have a weekend break. Of course the rain will return Monday to start the new work week. Here in the Willamette Valley we’ve had a little over three and a half inches of rain in the last week. Add that to the recent snow melt and the ground gets very soft. Then when the wind blows, this happens;
Central: And finally, the central comes from yours truly, everyone’s favorite mythical creature…I know, there are you Leprechaun fans out there, but let’s just let that go for now, shall we?…Impish Dragon! Our high was supposed to be near 50 today, but only reached 36 and our low was right down there at 29. Which I thinks gives us the unwanted distinction of having the coldest day. It rained, it snowed, it sleeted, the wind blew with gusts over 50 mph and overall it was a crappy day! We’ve had rain over the last couple of days and now our rivers, streams and creeks are past flood stage and way over the banks due to the melting snow (oh, which is now ice, by the way) and the 3 inches of rain we’ve gotten. You know what they say about the weather in Indiana? If you don’t like the weather, just wait a couple of minutes.
So, you saw where we are still looking for volunteers (North, Northeast and West). We are also looking for guest commentators from the rest of the world (I know you’re out there) and anyone else who might have a picture or such to contribute. Like this beautiful picture from Garrett in NW Oregon:Thanks buddy! Now, what do you say we all get a laugh on!
This is bloody brilliant!!!! You will not believe how intelligent this bird is!
The mother-in-law arrives home from the shops to find her son-in-law Paddy in a steaming rage and hurriedly packing his suitcase.
“What happened Paddy?” she asks anxiously. “What happened!!
I’ll tell you what happened. I sent an email to me wife telling her I was coming home today from my fishing trip. I get home… and guess what I found: Yes, your daughter, my wife Jean, naked with Joe Murphy in our marital bed!
This is unforgivable, the end of our marriage. I’m done. I am leaving forever!”
“Ah now, calm down, calm down Paddy!” says his mother-in-law. “There is I something very odd going on here. Jean would never do such a thing! There must be a simple explanation. I’ll go speak to her immediately and find out what happened.”
Moments later, the mother-in-law comes back with a big smile… “Paddy, I told you there must be a simple explanation…..
. . . she never got your email!”
Being the bigger mythological creature, you’ll notice I did not take the obvious route of substituting Lethal Leprechaun for Paddy in the above joke. I have to tell you, as often as I’ve been getting run over by buses lately, it was sorely tempting. Then I thought, gee…who’s it really picking on? And the thought of pissing Molly off scares me to death!
LOL! Hi ya Molls!
We need to classify this next video under the category of “It ain’t fair!” This little chickadee is SO cute and adorable! A definite Olympics contender say in 2022 or 2026. What’s the “ain’t fair” part you ask? Granted, I have a bum knee and all, but this little girl can do more on the ice, than I can do on solid ground with my best sneakers on! Ah, you’ll see:
And another great video. I don’t have a fear of heights, but watching this gave me butterflies in my stomach! Climbing The Shanghai Tower (650 meters or 2,132.5 feet) the second tallest building in the world and it’s still under construction. These two Russian kids hopped a fence and scaled this building going all the way out …. well, you’ll see.
Spain may have the running of the bulls, but this stampede of cuteness cannot be out-done!
And what a perfect segue into our next section. This little bunny has the heart of a hero!
Older Employee Notice!Due to the current financial situation caused by the slowdown inthe economy, and the mass export of US jobs to Asia and the developing countries, Congress has decided to implement a scheme to put workers age 50 and above on early, mandatory retirement, thus creating jobs and reducing unemployment.This scheme will be known as RAPE(Retire Aged People Early).Persons selected to be RAPED can apply to Congress to be considered for the SHAFT program (Special Help After Forced Termination).Persons who have been RAPEDand SHAFTED will be reviewed under the SCREW program (System Covering Retired-Early Workers).
A person may be RAPED once, SHAFTED twice and SCREWED as many times as Congress deems appropriate.
Obviously persons who have AIDS or HERPES will not be SHAFTED or SCREWED anyfurther by Congress.

Here is a great 13 question science test. It’s quick and fun and you get to compare yourself to others who take the test. See if you can beat the dragon. I got 12 out of 13 correct. The one I missed? It could have gone either way. I actually had the correct answer marked and then changed my mind. And they always say, go with your first response. Oh well. I had fun all the same.

No shit! And that’s got to be bad whiskey. Good whiskey doesn’t do that shit to you!
An Arab was seated next to our dear Lethal Leprechaun on a flight from London. After the plane was airborne, drink orders were taken. Lethal asked for a good Irish whiskey, which was promptly brought and placed before him.
The flight attendant then asked the Arab if he would like a drink.
He replied in disgust, “I’d rather be savagely raped by a dozen whores than let liquor touch my lips.”
Lethal Leprechaun then solemnly handed his drink back to the attendant and said, “Me, too, I didn’t know we had a choice.”
