Okay, I never applied to the school in question. Half my high school attending was a good part of the problem. However, I freely admit that I probably could have gotten in had I done so. Now would be tricky.
Not keen on the football team, but the mascot could be considered cute. Although I believe the reason bulldogs are chosen has do to do with tenacity than looks. Know Yale and Mississippi State have this furball, yet they look more like bulldogs tend to, with double colors of brown and white.
Oh good grief. This man should have a double charge since he called out the fire department on false charges. Cats climb, people. If they got up, they can well come down.

Get over it people. You packed too heavy to begin with, and London is better at security. When media decides the people have a right to know, the terrorists are one step closer. Law abiding citizens are of no interest to federal agents.
Islamic extremists. Let me define that for you. Muslims with an Islamic faith + behavior so far off typical that attention must be paid.
NOW: Folks, terror is created by people FEW not majority. On Sept 11, Muslims in this country (and we do have them) were horrifed at events. Same for the London bombings. Are ALL Muslims guilty of terrorism? NO. Are most? NO. I agree those two could have, and should have, waited their turn patiently. Boarding has a pattern made to get people on quickly. If you have to question whether Arabic is being spoken, you don't have ANY right to make the call. Besides, there's a good chance an air marshal is on the plane. Which reminds me-they need to overhaul their system, they aren't as invisible as they think. In fact, they make themselves spotted way too easily.

Planned to do this last night, but computer caught spyware and threw more than a few fits. Kelley had her baby this week, making her the Blightess of three. Mother and baby doing fine, now in recovery mode. Jawga Bloggers are going to have their hands full-it takes time to develop a taste for Artillery Punch ; )

Egad. I realize this family is one of great faith, but I have to take issue with what the father said. Loud noise the most effective guard against the devil? WRONG!!! The prayers are the most important part, not how loud one says them. The landlord would be justifed in this case to evict this family. They obviously only care about themselves.

Tried to update my link list, and Blogger finally stepped up. Three blogs, and two had spam messages. Not from me. Dax had to approve my comment, due to my name being on a list. okaaaaayyy........ One comment went through, but is awaiting approval. Another refused to let me leave a comment due to high amount of spamming.

Changed template, and lost customizations. Took me a minute to figure out those were links and the comment banner. Never fear, comments are still there, but where Blogger has a link, not where I tired to put them. And why is my URL above the Blogarama? Not sure what that last thing is, but working on the redo.
Links disappearing gave me a chance to consider which bloggers should go on it. I use some as jump-offs. Such as Kelley. I read hers, and look at her sidebar to see who updated their blogs. (Not sure how to set mine up to) She is busy with a job and new baby on the way, so Chrissy serves the purpose with her comments. Occasionally, I get introduced to new bloggers, like Lisa. So I made my list, and made notes where double checking needed. Eventually, I will get added to more blogrolls.

Awww! As you can see, although I am one of the Jawga bloggers, I do not share in the same university where the funky spelling came from. In fact, my mascot was another dog entirely-the St. Bernard. Go watch Beethoven for a visual of that critter.
Tomorrow is various political runoffs for legislative positions in Georgia. Not all places, but certain state and national seats. Let's see-how many dodo brains will put Cynthia McKinney back in office? My phone already rang with someone volunteering for Jim Martin- Dem challenger. Doesn't anybody realize votes can switch between primary and November? People did exactly that to ensure Ralph Reed did not get office.
Am reminded of the commenter in AJC where someone said voting is privilege, not right. People got upset, and quoted relevant parts of Constitution. Ahem. Let me step in here. You have to be 18, number one. A U.S. citizen (assuming legal preferred) for another. Now, having said these things, I find it hard to consider "rights" as such when they can be taken away. Ever heard of a felony, folks? Two immediate consequences are lose the ability to cast a vote, and own a firearm. Which means the 2nd Amendment is out the window as well.
