End Of The Year Post

Right now teams/movies/music and so on for the decade are being honored such as Tiger Woods being Athlete of The Decade. Only problem is the decade is not over until December 31st of 2010. All has to do with no year zero. Same issue arose during millennium celebrations.

The Red Sox have made some excellent moves lately with the addition of John Lackey, Marco Scutaro and Mike Cameron. Cameron has long been a personal favorite who I was hoping the Sox would have picked up a few years back rather than trading for Coco Crisp.

Is the economy really turning around? WOW better hope so for November of 2010.

I have a link to Mouse Print on my sidebar. I really enjoy this consumer site especially the way they track downsizing of products. Size goes down and price goes up. I imagine Suo will soon downsize bricks.

There is politics and there is government and the recent Senate vote on health care shows politics at its possible worse. All that was missing was the gun and mask from senators from Nebraska, Louisiana and Florida whose states receive payments in exchange for votes. Boss Tweed lives!

I managed to finally listen to The Billy Fallon Show and I’ll say this old “Billy” has a nice delivery. Easy listening. I wish he did have those barking dogs doing Jingle Bells.

When I get Xmas presents for my wife I usually schedule them to arrive right through January. Her highlight for this year will be a fruit cake (named after me?) that is one of her favorite treats. Company that makes them actually finishes production in May and lets them sit and “mature.”

Ford Motors Company (F) has made quite a turnaround and is now selling at a yearly high.

The climate convention had the usually suspects “lecturing” the Western World on out excesses. I really place much faith in the ramblings of Hugo Chavez and Robert Mugabe.

I’ve stopped brushing my teeth since I don’t want a DUI charge.

Lost in the ghastly vote on health care was the vote in the Senate to raise the debt ceiling to 12.4 trillion dollars.

Gaming analyst have forecast 2010 to be a “transition year” for Las Vegas. That means the outlook sucks for gaming in 2010.

Looks like Blogger Shark did not bite for the Suo inspired call out. Too bad…..$425 for the BS favorite charities. Maybe BS would have contributed it to the Green School?

I joined the Middleboro Elks a few years ago and one of my biggest regrets is that I didn’t join sooner. They do so much for charity that the public doesn’t know about that I felt the need to sing out. Our organization gives out Scholarships, feeds the Veterans each moth, feeds the hungry and gives out food basket for Thanksgiving & Christmas (and gifts) and I’m so proud to be part of this organization. I have become friends with many members of the Police, Fire & Water Departments and even the guys that pickup my trash and recycling bins. You should see how much these people give of themselves when they are off the clock, it’s truly remarkable.

For $70.00 a year you will get more out of each dollar spent by the rewards you will see in return.
If anyone is interested in joining, please let me know. (waaglendye@yahoo.com)

Placed it on the sidebar. I'll add it to my links.

Nice job for BS! $425 that he/she could have had. I see that it appears the money was donated anyways. What about the books?

I checked on that decade business and it is correct. Someone refers to it as the odometer effect.

Hopefully the plows will be on hold until next winter.

Over regulation.

Over spending.

Over taxation.

Scott Brown has summed it all up regarding Massachusetts.

Bogo

2 and 1/2 will have some real problems in Middleboro. CPA was dead on arrival and I think this one will be. I remember your poll did not have strong support for it.

Suo Mynona said...

Was I watching Saturday Live or the Dick Clark?

bogofree said...

I just have to say what a wonderful column BB wrote for this week. I just find computer talk so "sexy" when compared to baseball talk.

Suo Mynona said...

Another stellar job by Jane Lopes for the Year In Review. She really does condense the year's events quite well. When reading it you realize that quite a bit does happen in town.

The pictures she used where second only to Life Magazine.

bogofree said...

I enjoyed the picture of "Exit stage left" exiting stage left. Notice whose photo was next to his?

Blogger Shark said...

Happy New Year! Really, I mean it.

Wally et all, I gave to my own charity, you can donate to your own, if your wallet is willing.

Was it those same fat fingers that threatened to have my jaw wired shut? Happy New year to you too. Really.

bogofree said...

Nice to have you back, BS, and hope for a good new year sans any violance.

anonymous said...

Elk Vs. Shark a battle for tha ages. Horns against teeth.

Wally Glendye said...

I think I made my point Blogger Scrooge!

LMAO said...

Blogger shows up after the fact. He had the opportunity to contribute an additional $425 to his favorite charities and passed on it.

Anyways, Blogger has some interesting posts and despite his tong war with Limo some of his material can add a new perspective.

bogofree said...

More snow so I wonder how the plowing will take place?

Shark, I have a few questions that you can answer if you wish...maybe even on your site which appears to be open - again.

I'm a NIMBY with the casino. Are you? Are you against all casinos? All gambling?

I finally bit the bullet and made a post on the BB site regarding dogs. I have two and BB now has one and that translates to three potential clients for "Billy Flynn." Sometimes when BB and I go running I take our dogs along and his pup will be a fine addition to the mix. Kids are just at the right age and BB will soon see that he will sink to the bottom of "The list" on family importance. I'm on the bottom over here and can't even get past the Clarking feral cats my wife feeds.

Wally Glendye said...

How about that Bruins game at Fenway yesterday.

Suo Mynona said...

Kids have discovered that new style (coorugated plastic)campaign signs make killer sleds. Great way to recycle.

BTW Bogo, it is now politically incorrect to have dogs.

I'll come over to your house for dinner. I'll bring along a Five Star Chinese Chef that never had the benefit of a Clark CT ESL teacher.

I fully agree on all accounts. We're starting to witness the third epoch of the web (static HTML, Server Side MVC, and now true Client/Server). It's definitely time to retool.

Today I said goodbye to my first Hospice patient. She would have been 100 in December. They work hard to match up volunteers with patients, and they did a fantastic job with us. We bonded quickly and talked about everything, from how short Tom Cruise is to how worried her five-year-old self was that her
