A new Contest

Saying for the Day:Of the making of internet contests there is no end.

A Brand New Exciting Contest

Despite the under whelming response to our Friday Contest.
Despite the complete lack of enthusiasm for any contest.

We still offer you a new contest.

This one has a bigger prize.

This one depends on your ability to think ( sort of)

First the prize.

A Christmas train.
To go around your tree.
To go around your Christmas village.
To go around anything that really
needs something to go around it.

All you have to do is guess the date of our 953 blog entry.
Even I don’t know the answer , yet.
Put your answer in a comment.

Only one guess per day.

First person to give the right date wins.

Winner will be announced in the 953 blog entry.

So start your guessing.

@@@@ News from Pigeon Falls-The little town in my basement where the trains still run, dragons fly, and it is colder yet.-The temperature in Pigeon Falls dropped to ten below zero today with a light dusting of snow. Everything is such a pretty white.
The scientists packed up and left today. They left instruments to collect data and one man to watch over them. They said they were going back to Washington to consult with colleagues. The other group is leaving as well. They said they think the government scientists have discovered something that links this to Global Warming and are covering it up. They are going back to insure that they don’t get away with it.
Petrovich has invited several experts on old Coptic to come and go over the driblets with him to see if he missed something or if some other translation might be helpful. There aren’t many experts on old Coptic but he has gotten two of the best. He did some favors for them some time ago and has now called them in. He will post variations or new translations to his website.
Poor Jack is going to have to close up his Sauna. The pipes are not shielded against below zero weather. Every year when the really cold weather came he drained the sauna and went to Florida for a couple of months. At the moment his is running the sauna night and day to keep the pipes heated but he is losing money. Of course more people are taking saunas trying to shake the cold so that helps a little.
Kivi & Maki have brought in some fantastic winter jackets that are light but still keep you warm. They have some kind of new miracle insulation. It will also stop a bullet so it’s good for deer hunting.

Today's Link-I'm Just Saying-- This is about a cat and a car and the Old Fart would like it.
I had a good day. In the afternoon Betty and I worked in the basement. We are now making progress. I would guess in another three weeks we will have gone through all the boxes. Some of what I put on free cycle has been picked up. We can now get car in the garage. Life is good. Now I need a breathing treatment.

December 12th

Maybe they need a woman who works for the electric company to come and sing. She would be a woman of power and the lightning bolt would fit with electricity.

Those jackets sound like a good idea. Wonder if they come in blaze orange.

October 19th, 2007 will be the date of your 953 blog entry. I tossed a dart at the calendar and you know that method is never wrong!

And only in Pigeon Falls would sudden, inexplicable sub-zero weather be considered global warming.
