Speaking of the puppies:

Smoke loves to stand in the window and look for his humans and bark at the neighbor's kitty cats.

Snoopy just loves to sit and survey all in front of him. I think he's elected himself King of the House!


I don't tell my wife Kim anywhere near enough how much I love her, and appreciate what she does for us as a family. You're the greatest, my dear!


Now that my days off at work have been changed to Monday/Tuesday, we can once again take Jimmy to Mother Goose Story Time at the Palm Harbor Library. See you today Miss Sam!

Riders' Boreham surprised by trade to Argos

May 03, 2010

REGINA -- It wasn't the news that former Saskatchewan Roughriders punter Jamie Boreham was expecting.

Boreham was in Regina on the weekend for the inaugural Game Changers Kicking Clinic at Mosaic Stadium with Riders placekicker Luca Congi. After Saturday's session was over, Roughriders general manager Brendan Taman asked to speak with Boreham. Taman then told him that he had been traded to the Toronto Argonauts as part of a deal in which the Riders acquired the first overall pick in Sunday's CFL draft.

``I was shocked,'' Boreham said during a break in Sunday's sessions.

Kinda funny....The more a family tries to lift themselves out of a bad situation, the less help the government is willing to give. I keep hearing stories of families who try to remain intact, but need a little "boost" to do so. But, artificial guidelines are set so low, that even a meaningless job by one family member, combined with poverty-level unemployment compensation, will push that family over the limit and ineligible to receive assistance. But then, a person who keeps popping out babies like a PEZ dispenser has people bending over backwards offering help. There's little fairness to "the system" and goverments at the local, state and federal level should be ashamed of themselves. I'm tired of reading those stories. The families honestly trying to dig out of a hole should be able to get help. The ones who "work the system" instead of working to get out of "the system" should be shown the door.

Yup, that "hope and change" is really working out great, isn't it?


That's all for today. Have fun y'all!
