    I saw a real Buffalo was when I was driving across country from Seattle. I have no idea where I was other than driving East on a two lane road. There was hardly any traffic. I pulled off road to eat and stretch. I had walked over a rise and WOW there were 5 of them all just standing around, munching grass. I just sat real quiet and in absolute awe.

  3. Wow:

    DENVER – A suburban Denver man believed to be the only consumer to develop “popcorn lung” from regularly eating microwave popcorn and its artificial butter flavoring has settled his claims against a flavor developer.

    Documents filed Monday in U.S. District Court in Denver say Wayne Watson has settled claims against FONA International Inc., formerly Flavors of North America Inc.

    Both sides agreed to bear their own attorneys’ fees and costs. Other terms weren’t released. A phone message left after business hours for Watson’s attorneys wasn’t returned.

    Watson has said he regularly ate two bags of microwave popcorn a day for years. In 2007, he was diagnosed with a lung condition linked to the flavor chemical diacetyl, found in popcorn flavoring.

     I just went to check my public mail. There were over a dozen requests for donations from the ACLU to Media Matters. Yikes! I give to them all regularly, well most of them. I added a couple of other worthy causes to the list this month.

  4. how about this:

    “Damn! I haven’t been on a date in over a year.  Maybe I need to find a new groomer.”
