From Scones to Scrotums


Sometimes I have to giggle as I cruise around my favourite bloggers in the morning.

Diverse they surely are. And I imagine all of us are truly unique in the selections we read. Here’s a little sample of some of mine.

Today I can read about Wicklow trekking and grumpy old men.

And colourful birds in back yards.

And a once a week post from one of my faves, James Howard Kunstler and this week he’s into:

General Motors is reduced to lunch meat on industrial-capital's All-You-Can-Eat buffet spread.
I just love that man’s turn of phrase.

Here’s another sample:

Now, their incomes have stopped coming in altogether and they are sinking into swamp of entropy already occupied by the tattoo-for-lunch-bunch. Of course, this has plenty of dire sociopolitical implications
.

And I should pay attention to my horoscope while I'm drooling around the favourite spots for it cautions:

Monday, May 25
Don't forget to focus some attention on your most important goals and priorities today. You could be so distracted by what's going on with everyone else around you that you forget to tend to your own needs right now. Just be sure that some people don't try to take advantage of your generous spirit today.

And yeah, you're dying, admit it: I know you are.

Here’s Scones

And here’s Scrotums

  1. Hey WWW, you pointed me to a really neat weblog. I'll let you take a guess as to which one of these appealed so much to me that I became a follower. It's not a straight forward one.

  2. Oh, I recognise that poster, it's an updated version of the Rosie the Riveter poster that was very popular in the sixties. Good to see Rosie has updated her feminist activism via the internet.

  3. I introduced my American wife to scones of the English variety. (Mind, judging from Grannymar's recipe there's no major difference.) Now, I have to bake them every weekend.
    I doubt I introduced her to scrotums, though, given we were both in our fifties when we met.

  7. Oops, RJA, I read the 'scrotums' part of your comment as 'scones'.
    Makes my previous comment rather redundant.
    My bad.

  8. An eclectic group of blogs there, WWW!

    Mmmm scones - I miss 'em! hot with fresh farm butter, and a nice cup o' Typhoo. Manna from heaven.

    Scrotums - can't say I miss 'em as I never had one of my own - borrowed one or two, but can't say I ever found 'em things of beauty. That Bete blog is a hoot though! :-)

Some of you are having trouble, I've removed captcha and verification so we'll see how that goes. My apologies. Blogger is putting up far too many roadblocks. Thanks for the emails alerting me.
