One Step Back (PR4.5.1)

I had thought by now I would have good news like the house is done. BUZZZ, Sorry one wrong answer R-POC. Seem that Homo Depot and the manufacture of the counter-top, fucked up once again. I say both because Homedepot failed to call anyone and let us know that there was a problem with the said counter-top, we only found this out when asking why it had not been delivered as promised for today. So this all means we'll be eating out on Thanksgiving. Out of all of the holidays to fuck up they picked my favorite, the mother of all the Good Eats holidays. Well at least I do have an oven, though I don't what I'll cook. Well I'll figure something out. As you guessed there is no new progress, hopefully Home Depot will make good on their screw up.

On a side note I was treated to a show, our neighbors two sons are home for college. They were both out in the yard in shorts and Under Armour throwing the football around. Yum. I was polite enough not stare but they looked damn hot. ;-)I couldn't resist stealing a few peaks. So here's some football related eyecandy...

On this rock, a myth was built

Just a pre-Thanksgiving history lesson for everyone. I grew with this story since growing up in Massachusetts and as a kid I can't tell you how many elementary schools field trips I took there. It's a cute little video with some pretty corny graphics. Out of all of the holidays on the calendar Thanksgiving had been my favorite.

Weird Dream and Progress Report 4.5

I really don't dream that much at least not many that I remember anyway. Well last night I had a dream I was drink either with some football hooligans or a rugby team. It definitely did not take place in the US. I'm not sure which, I didn't recognize the bar/pub and I'm not sure if they are gay or straight, it was pretty much just guys drinking and watching a game. It was a pretty festive time. So I guess over all it was good but the hell does it mean, it was pretty random? If your good at interpreting dreams just leave me a comment and please explain what the hell it al means.

On a side note the contractors are here, why they have to show up at 8am on a Saturday is beyond me. But the house is probably at 95% they are finishing a few touch ups, the kitchen cabinets and stretching the carpet. Unfortunately the kitchen won't be 100% until Tuesday, the counter-top had been delayed. Which is cutting it close to having a kitchen to cook for Thanksgiving, I've pretty much said I'm not eating out on the holiday. The sofa is going to be delivered this afternoon. Tuesday I'm going to talk to someone about getting the dining room chairs re-upholstered and finding some fabric for those since our roomate doesn't seem to care and has been dicking the dog. I decide to hold off on the photos and until there is a finished product.

Sethy here's another Yellow guy for your little trip through the color wheel.

Dolly Parton Voices Support

I always knew there was a reason I loved Dolly Parton. I had thought it had been because of movies like 9 to 5 (which rocked) or maybe it had been The Best Little Whorehouse in Texas (also hilarious). But it's nice to see her speak her mind no matter what back lash it could have. Oh wait the didn't some group boycott Dollywood, I'm sure that worked as well as the Boycott of Disney. But, I especially love the way she layed the smackdown to religious zealot pastor Joel Osteen. The CNN's Joy Behar interview is at the bottom of the post.


Dolly Parton Voices Support for Gay Marriage - The Boot
by Stephen L. Betts

The always candid Dolly Parton has revealed that she's in favor of granting gays and lesbians the rights to marry.

"Sure, why can't they get married? They should suffer like the rest of us do," the outspoken superstar told CNN show host Joy Behar. When Behar suggested Dolly's Southern roots might not mesh with the idea of marriage equality, the singer agreed, "I know that's true."

Dolly's not alone. This year, Reba McEntire surprised some of her conservative fans when she spoke in support of her gay fans and "many gay friends." "Don't judge me and I won't judge you," she said. "Keep an open mind."

Sugarland's Jennifer Nettles, too, recently celebrated her gay fans. "I've always had a large gay following," the singer, who has performed at Gay Pride in Atlanta three times, said. "Particularly in the lesbian community. I am grateful for that ... It also means that I'm a cute girl singing a rock song in an alto voice!"

As for Dolly, the flamboyant entertainer admits she feels a certain kinship with her many gay and lesbian fans."I think it's because they know I'm different too, and it took me a long time to be accepted," she reasons.

"Plus, a lot of my gay guy friends love to dress up," she adds. "I think they just appreciate the fact that I love everybody for who they are."

Dolly did have some strong words, however, for Houston megachurch pastor Joel Osteen, who earlier this month stated that "homosexuality is not God's best work." "I don't want to talk about him," she said with a laugh. "I think God made us who we are and how we are, and I don't think if [Osteen] was a religious person, he would be judging people."

Dolly herself has weathered gay rumors. She and assistant Judy Ogle are constantly spotted together, and their close friendship (they've also been best friends since the third grade) eventually fueled speculation about whether the two were romantically connected, as well.

"We're totally honest, open, and comfortable with each other," Dolly told AARP magazine of her friendship with Judy. "We've been accused of being lovers. We do love each other, but we've never been like that."

Dolly shrugs off the rumors and insists that the "I dos" she said 43 years ago with husband Carl Dean were meant for life.

"I know we'll never divorce," she says. "He always knows I'm coming home."

Dolly's 'Live from London' CD/DVD was released last week.

Happy Veterans Day

On the eleventh day of the eleventh month at the eleventh hour of 1918 the armistice was signed to end the war that was to end all wars. We are still waiting on that. . . .

I just want to thank all of my fellow veterans for the sacrifices they made. Also I want to salute and a thank to all of the active duty Sailors, Soldiers and Airmen at home and overseas. So if you know a Veteran thank him or her and shake their hand.

Below are some photos of the Congressional Medals Of Honor, most recipients never receive the award, it is given posthumously. I f you'd like to find out more about the medal or the stories of the recipients go check out http://www.cmohs.org/

Damn Them Yankees

Well I didn't do to bad with my final analysis of the MLB playoffs and though I forgot to commit to the World Series winner. Though I had been hoping to the Phillies would win, but alas the Yankees took it all. I hating the Yankees only comes natural for me being a Red Sox fan ;-) But my hat goes off for the Yankees they played a hell of series and it just shows that A-rod has shaken the riod stigma. They have a some great bats and had been surging since the All-Star break. They didn't miss a beat even into the playoffs. It's one hell of a way to christen their new stadium in the Bronx.

Now we start with the off season and free agent filings. I believe players can start filing today and then there is a 15 day exclusivity period with their current clubs after that it's free game for the rest of the league. I haven't looked over the whole field to see who is out there but I think Matt Holliday (Cardinals), Jason Bay (Red Sox) and Johnny Damon (Yankees) are all eligible. I would love to see Matt and Jason in Red Sox's uniforms in the spring. Once all of the filings are in I'll try to keep you up to date on who is going where.

Progress Report 4.0

Things are moving along at the house, slowly but surely. Yesterday the HVAC units were replaced so things are bit more comfortable. Today they are mounting the kitchen cabinets, though they haven't finished grouting the floor 1st, don't ask me why they haven't. The carpets and floors are the biggest hurdle to moving back downstairs. We spent last Sunday looking at more furniture, mostly looking for side tables. I think we are also close to purchasing those. We did buy the couch; we got the Troy sofa from Crate and Barrel with Mushroom Micro-fiber that will come in a week or so. Ryan has an idea which TV and stand he wants to get.

We next have to find someone to re-upholster the dinning room chairs and clean up the rest of the furniture. We have been waiting to do that until the kitchen floor or there is less dust. We are pretty much in the home stretch now it's a matter of getting things finished up. Then we can really get picky about fine tuning things.

So the biggest out standing issues are the kitchen stairs and floors. I know I promised photos but I still haven't gotten around to taking them. I'll try to remember to take some tomorrow on my day off and then get those posted.

On a side note Serv-Pro rep came by last night to address a letter that was sent to them. Little was done about the quality of service we received. So if you are ever flooded and live in the Atlanta area DO NOT call Serv-Pro of Chamblee, call Service Master.
