Links et al.

Check out these strange old black and white photos titled, appropriately enough, “Unexplainable Black and White Photographs.” The first ones are pretty weird.  Towards the end I was ‘getting’ a lot more of them.

Do you like Karaoke?  Have you ever wondered what might constitute the ‘perfect’ karaoke song?  Matthew of Defective Yeti has, and he did an amusing little write-up about it.

Party Central Update:   And here’s the great room, ready for a party, except I don’t have the balloons in place yet, will wait til tomorrow so they don’t wimp out before everyone gets here.
You can’t see the big table in the back on the left in this picture, but it’s there, with 10 more seats.  We moved most of the furniture around, some of it is in the bedroom and I will have to crawl over it to get to the bed. 🙂
Goob is in the front, showing us what a party animal he is.   Actually, he’s wondering how to get over to the rug so he can take a snooze.

Welcome to Panic Central

Um, we now have 37 RSVP’s in the affirmative.  Did I mention I’m not that great with crowds?

Looks more and more like it’s going to rain buckets.   If that happens we’ll have to ditch the tables and just plop everyone into rows of folding chairs crammed around the furniture.  What should I do with all the balloons?  Do people mind being crammed together like sardines at a party where they don’t all know each other and the age ranges are from 16 to 70+? With no booze?  Oh yeah.  This is hilarious.  Frankly, I think there WILL be a little booze, if only in the hostess and the hostess’ helper.  Thank jeebus for Corey, she is an industrial-strength organizer.  But she can’t make the house any bigger or control the weather.  Hey, internet, you want to come, too?  Why not?  The more the merrier.  🙂  HAHAHAHAHAHA.

Yep, losin’ it.

Quotes

If men were angels, no government would be necessary. If angels were to govern men, [no] controls on government would be necessary.

In framing a system, which we wish to last for ages, we should not lose sight of the changes which ages will produce.

The means of defense against foreign danger historically have become the instruments of tyranny at home. [can you say Homeland Security?]

Wherever the real power in a Government lies, there is the danger of oppression.

Crisis is the rallying cry of the tyrant.

If man is not fit to govern himself, how can he be fit to govern someone else?

The essence of Government is power; and power, lodged as it must be in human hands, will ever be liable to abuse.

–James Madison, 1751 – 1836
This was one smart, insightful human being.
