INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) - Gift certificates have become a popular holiday gift option, but a controversial new one, already has people talking.

For the first time, Planned Parenthood in Indiana is offering gift certificates. The organization said a big increase in calls and visits from newly unemployed and uninsured Hoosiers prompted what it calls the unusual, yet practical gift option. " Gift certificates for Planned Parenthood

The certificates come in $25 increments. They can be used for everything from birth control to $58 examinations that include breast exams and pap tests. Men who receive healthcare at Planned Parenthood can use them too.

Hum, "they can be used for everything", including abortions!

Why do some in my family still vote democrat?

There Are Good Educators

From a friend on E Mail.

I do not know if it is true but sounds like a good lesson in life.

According to a news report, a certain private school in Washington recently was faced with a unique problem.

A number of 12-year-old girls were beginning to use lipstick and would put it on in the bathroom. That was fine, but after they put on their lipstick they would press their lips to the mirror leaving dozens of little lip prints. Every night the maintenance man would remove them and the next day the girls would put them back.

Finally the principal decided that something had to be done.

She called all the girls to the bathroom and met them there with the maintenance man. She explained that all these lip prints were causing a major problem for the custodian who had to clean the mirrors every

To demonstrate how difficult it had been to clean the mirrors, she asked the maintenance man to show the girls how much effort was required.

He took out a long-handled squeegee, dipped it in the toilet, and cleaned the mirror with it. Since then, there have been no lip prints
on the mirror.

There are teachers, and then there are educators

Is there some way to curve sexual intercourse among teenagers.

Black Friday

My first shopping trip on black Friday with Mrs. Berry Laker and favorite grandson ( so far only have one grandson).

Pulled into Fleet Farm at 5:55 a m. Honest to God, there must of been 250 people at each of the two doors going into Fleet Farm all waiting to get in at 6:00.

Stayed in the truck with favorite grandson.

Parking lot lights didn't come on till 6:12.

You would not believe the people that went in the door at Fleet Farm to get a free stuffed dog to the first 500 people and went right out the door and bought nothing. Cheep @#$%^&* people!

With an over filled parking lot you would not believe how many men and women forgot where they parked their cars. It was funny!

Breakfast at Julies Cafe Green Bay. Good food!

Even Shopko had a good share of cars in the parking lot, not full but impressive.

Looking at Best Buy ad, where is the consumer protection? Where is Steve Kagen on deceptive advertising? T V's each modal 5 per store no rain checks , computers 10 per store no rain checks, vacuum cleaners 4 per store no rain checks and on and on. How can they advertise such low limited numbers for thousands of people.

Menards are pro active, good prices and a lot of toys and electronic items at a lumber store, who would of thought. Kudos to Menards.

Looked for a curio cabinet, found the best price at the Wood Shed in Bonduel.

Didn't look like a troubled economy to me!

Sorry, I am not that crazy to do it again soon!

Thanksgiving On Berry Lake

Thanksgiving at Berry Laker's House on Berry Lake Wisconsin.

Pilgrims - the pilgrims learned a commune wouldn't work and tried Reaganomics and turns out it worked.

Native Americans - We live a half mile from the Menominee County. Menominee is a sovereign nation. I may not agree with how most of the county votes but I have learned to admire and respect the Native Americans of the Menominee Nation. I also like to donate at the casino in Keshena. They are truly blessed with a beautiful part of Wisconsin. As they say, they are a proud people. The many people we know we are truly grateful and thank God for their friendship.

Family - We have only one family left, It so happens to be mine. With most being on the left side of politics I have learned to accept their stupid idiotic beliefs and just relate some in my family as "flakes". We don't see other family that live in Colorado. Our wish is to visit them next year. There is my daughter (learning to be a conservative) , my favorite son in law (I only have one) and our grandson (what a boy). Then there is Son # 1 going to UW Milw, dam proud of him. Son # 2 who is a senior at Gillett High. Son # 2 has a great girlfriend Penelope. They make a nice couple. The Mrs. is making her old fashion turkey recipe. Now a big T V star (judge on Food Network), how could I make it through this world without the love of my life. To all my family good or bad, left or right I truly thank God for the great gifts of my great family.

Friends - we have had, may I say an adventurous year. We have so many good friends and neighbors. How can we thank you for your friendship. God Bless you and yours.

It's after 8:00 and Mrs Berry Laker is listening to "Alice's Restaurant", it's her thanksgiving yearly treat. She has to listen to Alice's Restaurant. Thank You Lord.

Thanksgiving Parades - I remember when I was young, I couldn't wait for the Macy's parade. Oh boy, the old guy just can't get into it any more. No on watching the parades. God bless all who enjoy the parades.

Bloggers - I do want to mention even though I may not talk directly to or see them directly, I need to thank the blogging family for all they do. The good , the bad, the funny, Thank God for all your work.

Black Friday - at 51, this may be my first black Friday shopping experience. God bless all those looking for deals and remember it's not the size , the cost , the model. "It's in giving that you receive." We pray to God for all who brave tomorrow. May you protect us and watch over all shoppers on Friday.

To everyone in this world, dear God, we thank you for the goodness you have given us. Thank you Lord for our family our friends and this day you have given us. We thank you God for the food you have provided. Bless this house and bless this family.


'Giving Thanks'

The H/T came from Rush. Jennifer was on his show.

"A time to pay tribute to the Pilgrims of Plymouth Rock.
'Giving Thanks'" 'Giving Thanks' - Los Angeles Times

By Jennifer James
November 23, 2008
It was Thanksgiving, and for the first time our whole family was together. Mom and Dad had to drive all night just to get here, but boy was it worth it! The Grandsters really know how to do it up right. The Grandsters being Grandpa and Grandma. We were all seated at the table, and I couldn't wait to dive into those mashed potatoes and gravy. And the smell of the turkey -- I thought I was going to faint with happiness.

"What's that, Mindy?" demanded my little cousin Sam. He can be such a pain. He is 8 years old, two years younger than I am.

"What's what?" I asked.

He pointed to a little paper cup containing just three kernels of corn beside Grandpa's plate. I opened my mouth to answer and then realized I didn't know. Ugh! How I hate admitting that I don't know something!

Grandma answered, "It is to pay tribute to the Pilgrims."

"But why three kernels?" asked the always curious Sam. Give it a rest, I thought.

Grandpa answered, "It reminds me of what a tough time the Pilgrims had. In the beginning, three kernels of corn was each person's daily food ration." The table got real quiet after he said that.

Grandpa continued, "Against all odds, they made a life for themselves in the wilderness. Let's talk more about it after dinner."

Sure enough, dinner was over and Sam wanted to know more.

" Squanto taught the Pilgrims to grow corn!" Sam exclaimed. He's never going to forget that -- he played Squanto in the Thanksgiving Day play at school.

"That's right," Grandpa said. "But at first the Pilgrims were terrified of the Indians, as they called them. Then one day a tribesman named Samoset ventured into their encampment. He was tall and dark and by many accounts quite handsome. Loudly and plainly he proclaimed, 'Welcome!' in perfect English."

"The Pilgrims must have freaked!" shouted Sam.

Grandpa laughed and agreed. "I'm sure you're right. He had learned the language from English fishermen. For the Pilgrims, life was a constant battle for survival. Later, Governor William Bradford made a decision. Instead of the colonists sharing their crops equally, he assigned a parcel of land to each family and told them they could keep whatever they produced for themselves."

"Then what happened?" asked Sam.

"At last the Pilgrims began to prosper. Governor William Bradford wrote in his book 'Of Plimoth Plantation,' 'This had very good success, for it made all hands industrious, so as much more corn was planted than otherwise would have been.' "

"Shoot! If you can keep everything you make, of course you're going to work harder. Everybody knows that."

Grandpa answered, "The first seed had been planted for the American Revolution. People were free to practice their religions as they saw fit and were free to keep the fruits of their labor. This had never happened before in the history of mankind. In the words of William Bradford, 'As one small candle may light a thousand, so the light here kindled hath shone unto many, yea in some sort to our whole nation.' "

"That William Bradford sounds like a pretty cool guy," said Sam.

"He was a pretty cool guy," Grandpa said with a chuckle.

"Invasives Rule Would Allow DNR To Enter Private Property

From The Lakeland-Times

"Invasives rule would allow DNR to enter private property
Legislative council seeks constitutional justification" Invasives rule would allow DNR to enter private property

Richard Moore
Investigative Reporter

A proposed rule being promulgated by the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources would allow DNR wardens to enter private homes and properties to conduct searches for invasive species.

The wardens would have the right to enter property whenever they "reasonably" believed an invasive species was present on the premises.

The rule has passed the public hearing stage, and a legislative council review has been forwarded to the agency. The next step is for the DNR to submit a final rule to the Natural Resources Board for approval and forwarding to the Legislature.

Boris And The Goat

Goats or sheep, there are a lot of gullible people out there.

AN old Russian fable tells of two poor peasants - Boris, who had a goat, and Ivan, who didn't. One day, Ivan came upon a strange-looking lamp; when he rubbed it, a genie appeared. She told him that she could grant him just one wish, but it could be anything he wanted.

Ivan said, "I want Boris' goat to die."

This fable may tell us something painful about many Americans today, when so many people are preoccupied with the pay of corporate CEOs. It isn't that the CEOs' pay affects them so much. If every oil-company executive in America agreed to work for nothing, that wouldn't be enough to lower the price of a gallon of gasoline by a dime.

But too many people are like Ivan, who wanted Boris' goat to die.

It isn't the general public that singles out CEOs for so much attention. Politicians and the media have focused on business leaders, and the public has been led along, like sheep.

The logic is simple: Demonize those whose place or power you plan to usurp.

Politicians who want the power to micro-manage business and the economy know that demonizing those who run businesses is the opening salvo in the battle to take over their roles.

Those who want more power know that giving the people somebody to hate and fear is the key.

This isn't just a question of which elites win out in a tug of war in America. It is the people at large who have the most at stake.

We have just seen one of the biggest demonstrations of what happens in an economy when politicians tell businesses what decisions to make.

For years, using the powers of the Community Reinvestment Act and other regulatory powers, along with threats of legal action, politicians have pressured banks and other lending institutions into lending to people they would not lend to otherwise.

Yet, when all this blows up in our faces and the economy turns down, what is the answer? To have more economic decisions made by politicians, because they choose to say that "deregulation" is the cause of our problems.

No matter what happens, for politicians it is "heads I win and tails you lose." If we keep listening to them and their media allies, we are all going to keep losing big. Keeping our attention focused on CEO pay - Boris' goat - is all part of this game. We are all goats if we fall for it." POLITICIANS, CEO PAY & THE TALE OF BORIS' GOAT - New York Post

Marriage, Food For Thought

E mail joke of the day.


1. Two times a week we go to a nice restaurant, have a
little beverage, good food and companionship
She goes on Tuesdays; I go on Fridays.

2. We also sleep in separate beds.
Hers is in California , and mine is in Kentucky.

3. I take my wife everywhere....
but she keeps finding her way back.

4. I asked my wife where she wanted to go for our anniversary.
'Somewhere I haven't been in a long time!' she said.
So I suggested the kitchen.

5 We always hold hands. If I let go, she shops

6. She has an electric blender, electric
toaster and electric bread maker.
She said 'There are too many gadgets, and no place
to sit down!' So I bought her an electric chair.

7. My wife told me the car wasn't running well
because there was water in the carburetor.
I asked where the car was. She told me, 'In the lake.'

8. She got a mud pack, and looked great for two days.
Then the mud fell off.

9. She ran after the garbage truck, yelling, 'Am I too late
for the garbage?' The driver said, 'No, jump in!'

10. Remember: Marriage is the number one cause of divorce.

11. I married Miss Right.

I just didn't know her first name was Always.

12. I haven't spoken to my wife in 18 months
I don't like to interrupt her.

13. The last fight was my fault though.
My wife asked, 'What's on the TV?'
I said, 'Dust!'

Dodge County Wisconsin, Holding The Bag

"Road detour for Depp movie shoot costs county

County officials in Wisconsin are holding the bag following a movie shoot involving Johnny Depp as famed bank robber John Dillinger.

During filming of "Public Enemies" -- Wisconsin's first film under the governor's new movie incentives -- state highway traffic was diverted away from the center of Columbus, 70 miles northwest of Milwaukee. The detour road couldn't stand the load -- and collapsed.

Dodge County was left with a $116,000 repair. It's filed a claim against the city of Columbus that could lead to a lawsuit.

But Columbus Mayor Nancy Osterhaus says talks are ongoing between the city, county and film studio NBC Universal, with hopes that they might split the bill for the March mishap.

What Happened

51-29 ? and 5-6 ? From JSOnline

What going on?
"New Orleans - A shootout broke out at the Superdome on Monday night and the Green Bay Packers got gunned down.

Indomitable Drew Brees fired four touchdown passes through the Packers' heretofore stingy secondary in the Saints' electrifying and stunning 51-29 victory.

The Packers (5-6) fell a game off the pace in the NFC North Division race behind the Minnesota Vikings and the Chicago Bears, both of whom went on the road a day earlier and emerged victorious.

On the other hand, Green Bay dropped its third straight road game for the first time in coach Mike McCarthy's tenure. It was the only the second time since November 2006 that the Packers weren't even competitive in the second half of a game. " Road to destruction - JSOnline

Astronauts try to work out kinks in urine machine

HOUSTON (AP) -- Astronauts hope they have a solution for getting a pivotal piece of equipment working so it can convert urine and sweat into drinkable water and allow the international space station to grow to six crew members.

Flight controllers asked station commander Michael Fincke on Sunday to change how a centrifuge is mounted in the $154 million water recycling system. The centrifuge is on mounts and Mission Control asked Fincke to remove them.

Maybe my friends and relatives can understand this! Nice job and great blog

"Explaining The Bailout
22 November 2008, 10:16 pm. No Comments. Filed under Economy.

Once upon a time a man appeared in a village and announced to the villagers that he would buy monkeys for $10 each. The villagers, seeing that there were many monkeys around, went out to the forest and started catching them.

The man bought thousands at $10 and, as supply started to diminish, the villagers stopped their effort. He next announced that he would now buy monkeys at $20 each. This renewed the efforts of the villagers and they started catching monkeys again.

Soon the supply diminished even further and people started going back to their farms. The offer increased to $25 each and the supply of monkeys became so scarce it was an effort to even find a monkey, let alone catch it!

The man now announced that he would buy monkeys at $50 each! However, since he had to go to the city on some business, his assistant would buy on his behalf. In the absence of the man, the assistant told the villagers: “Look at all these monkeys in the big cage that the man has already collected. I will sell them to you at $35 and when the man returns from the city, you can sell them to him for $50 each.”

The villagers rounded up all their savings and bought all the monkeys for 700 billion dollars. They never saw the man or his assistant again, only lots and lots of monkeys!

Now you have a better understanding of how the WALL STREET BAILOUT PLAN WILL WORK !!!!

From Breitbart

Trying to kick a cold yesterday I ended up watching the ADT Championship on the golf network.
" Suzann Pettersen topped the leaderboard after the third round of the USLPGA ADT Championship.

"I still think the best golf for me this week is ahead of me," Pettersen said.

Pettersen led the way as eight players qualified for Sunday's final round of the event that features a first prize of one million dollars. Scores will be reset and Sunday will be a mad dash for the big prize.

Pettersen fired a four-under-par 68 despite a triple-bogey on the par-four fourth hole.

She carded seven of her eight birdies after the miscue at the fourth and wrapped up a spot in Sunday's final round with four straight birdies starting at No. 13.

Looking for her first win of the season, Pettersen had just two birdies in her first two rounds combined at Trump International Golf Club.

Angela Stanford shot 69 while Paula Creamer and Seon Hwa Lee each fired a 70 to move on. Ji-Yai Shin and Jeong Jang advanced with rounds of 71.

A three-way playoff decided the final two spots with Karrie Webb and Eun-Hee Jee earning a spot in Sunday's final Sun Young Yoo three-putted the par-three 17th.

Creamer can win the money list title with a win Sunday becoming the first U.S.-born player to do so since Betsy King in 1993.

The field was trimmed to 16 players after Friday's second round. " Pettersen seizes lead after third round of ADT Championship

Pettersen has the lead, Paula Creamer has a lot of guts ( she was playing with a possible appendicitis) along with the others who qualified.
