Picking up

Saying for the day: A tidy blog is a good blog.

This is Wednesday and I thought I’d use the space to just tidy up a bit.

First of all there is the PRIZE BOX thing.
I never thought it would take this long to get a winner.
But if we don’t have one today we will draw four names tomorrow and if any of them match the one drawn today it is finally over.

Next I am getting ready for the next blog marathon which will be next Wednesday.
I am checking all the names to make sure the links work.
I am laying out a plan to count the results so we don’t have the trouble we had last time ( of course I am not responsible for AT&T or blogger).
You will have more links to choose from than last time.

Then Margaret wanted to know what my favorite song or artist is.
That is a hard question but I narrowed it done to two possibilities , Amy Grant singing “El Shaddai” or Gene Autry singing “Back in the Saddle Again”.

Somebody asked how they could become a “link for the Day”.
That is not easy to answer.
First I have to find your blog.
Then it must be interesting.
It must not be a primarily commercial blog.
After that it is placed on a pending list.
A blog is chosen each day from that list by using an advanced equation developed out of chaos theory.

I think that’s all the loose ends.

Now the blog is tidy.

News from Pigeon Falls– The little town in my backyard where the trains still run and old ladies carry shotguns– Well we may have seen the last of the White Rabbit. Yesterday evening they blocked off the main street and set up the beer drinking contest in the very center of town. Six tables with kegs of beer. There were 30 contestants. The idea was too see who could drink the most glasses of beer in ten minutes. Five minutes into the contest there was the sound of a shotgun blast at the end of the block and then thick black smoke poured around the corner. Everybody , including the contestants ran to the end of the street to find Mrs. Trumble with her shotgun . She was covered with little pieces of stuffing from the inside of a stuffed Easter rabbit. She said she expected the White Rabbit would show up today and so she waited for it. When it came out of the woods she jumped out but as she raised her gun the White Rabbit threw the stuffed rabbit toward her and her blast hit the stuffed rabbit. But she thinks she hit the White Rabbit as well since all this black sulfur smelling smoke suddenly appeared and when it cleared the Rabbit was gone. “ I sent the demon back to where he came from”, she said. ”He won’t bother us any more” . She explained that she had special shotgun shells that had silver pellets and a drop of Holy Water in them. She got them from a catalogue that sells things to protect you from the supernatural. Eino says he is convinced that the White Rabbit is a mechanical device and that when she shot it is must have caught fire .That would explain the dense smoke. But there were no ashes, the forest didn’t catch fire, and there is nothing left of the rabbit. How does one explain that in a rational manner?
The beer drinking contest went on and Fredrick Hemingras , a tourist, won. He drank one glass more than anybody else inside the ten minutes. After all the excitement with the White Rabbit nobody really seemed to care who won except for Fredrick who liked his fancy shirt that said “Best Darn Beer Drinker in the World” on the front and back.
Nancy says that Mrs. Turmble has become Pigeon Falls equivalent of Buffy the Vampire Slayer. She is now Mrs. Trumble the demon destroyer. Tommy says he still thinks the White Rabbit was nice and that if Mrs. Trumble did kill him it’s a bad not a good thing.

Today's Link: Insanity Reigns Supreme..Because we've all had days like this-Remember to put the words Dr.John in the comments to get those listless JCPOINTS. Check your total HERE.
Yesterday we drew Cindy. If her name is drawn today she gets what's in the PRIZE BOX.
Now we wait for Betty to get up and draw.

Well Betty is up. She has cut in today's slips.

She draws and......

The name drawn is CHANA. Sorry Cindy (sorry Bree) Tomorrow we draw four names if Chana is one of them she gets what's in the Prize Box.
We spent mostof the day waiting for Patrick. We did get the Monday prizes mailed out.Patrick and boys arrived and will stay until Friday. I need a breathing treatment.

Definately, El Shaddai -- one of my all time favorites. Almost everytime I am called upon to lead worship this song is somewhere in the service.

One rabbit down, one dragon to go ....

Hi, Dr. John!

Man, it's good to be back, but I've missed so much; it'll take days and days to catch up! You're incredibly prolific and when I'm here, that's a good thing. However, when I've been away -- oh, my, I'm so out of the loop! And you know I can't stand to miss a thing . . .

I like both of those songs a lot. Though I must admit it has been a good while since I have heard that second one.

I hope things are going well for you.

Amy Grant and Gene Autry, great musicians. Everyday I learn something new about you and I think that is fantastic.

So the bunny might be a mechanical bunny, huh? That is some crazy stuff. Who could be controling the bunny, I wonder?

If I get nothing else done today, I will come and catch up on all that I have missed while I was away. This is my retreat. I look forward to Pigeon Falls.....bless you.

I am not worried about the white rabbit........he got away. I am sure of it......

I'm fairly sure I have El Shaddai around here somewhere - but Autry?

Let's see here....

Red River Valley and some Christmas tunes but lacking in Back in the Saddle.

(Still working on your surprize and sorry it's taking awhile.)

Generic Viagra is used in the treatment of Erectile Dysfunction (impotence), but it is not a cure. Impotence can be caused by a number of factors, either physical or psychological. Viagra can help maintain an erection but it will not stimulate arousal.Generic Viagra is a prescription drug, commonly used to help treat men having erectile dysfunction (ED) problems, also known as impotence. Generic Propecia comes in tablet form and should be taken only by men without liver problems. It should be taken regularly and needs to be taken with water - food is optional. Viagra contains Sildenafil and it is a prescription drug used to treat erectile dysfunction. Erectile dysfunction is the inability of the penis to become rigid, or stay firm long enough to complete the sexual act.Generic Cialis is the buzzword prescribed for all patients suffering from impotence.
