Slow version (just OK) of an all-time classic:

Busy, Busy, Busy

Things have been a bit crazy lately.  Work has been busy, but that's pretty much a constant, isn't it?

Beyond that, for this week I've participated in two board meetings, took four hours of training in curling (oh yes I did), and overall been on the go.  Writing has suffered, but in terms of rounding things out, my life has not.

It's nice to have choices, instead of things that I HAVE to do...

Saturday Song Share: Bob Dylan - Standing in the Doorway

This is easily one of my top ten Dylan songs of all time.

Kind of crummy camera work, but let your ears enjoy

Where's Woody Allen?

Hollywood is going through its purge of sexual deviants, attempting to clean itself of its longest and deepest rooted sins.  The witch hunt is in full swing, and the witches are burning, baby.

Except one.

Woody Allen continues to skate.  HE MARRIED HIS DAUGHTER.  But he continues to skate.

Sorry, but whatever the torrid story du jour hits, it won't stack up to Allen and what he's done.  Yet Hollywood still hails him a genius.

These are the EXACT same people that demanded that we "move on" from what Bill Clinton did multiple times to an intern.  

Until things get serious there, and guys like Allen (and Roman Polanski, for Pete's sake) are made to pay for their crimes - and I most certainly mean crimes - I view what's happening in Hollywood to be nothing but pandering for the politically correct crowd.

What a cesspool.

Sam - Life with a Gun Dog

To those of us that have hunting dogs, this tells the story very well:

Burger King Bullying Ad

I know we talked about Burger King already this week, but this ad needs to be called out.

While it is a little over the top, it does provide something for us to think about:

Thinoptics Comes Through

There are a lot of things to dislike about ageing.  Perhaps the biggest one is not being able to read anymore without glasses.  I went from having incredible eyesight to Mother Nature snapping her fingers and not being able to see a damn thing.  

It's super frustrating.  Beyond the challenges at work, reading menus, ingredients at the grocery store, deposit slips at the bank, or anything for that matter is an impossibility unless I have some glasses hanging from my nose.  And if I don't have those glasses?  I'm screwed.

Then I found Thinoptics.  Basically, if you have your phone, you have glasses.  Here is how they work:

Beyond their incredible utility, they get even better.  They have a lifetime guarantee.  So when you drop your phone and this happens:

all you do is email Thinoptics and a new pair is in the mail, no charge.

It's hard to describe how much this product has helped me.  I'm now on my second case and third set of glasses, all for my original fee.

This product is flat amazing.

I'm a Tony Romo Fan (in the Booth)

I admit that when I first heard Tony Romo announce, he rubbed me the wrong way.  I didn't like his delivery, and I didn't like how he sounded.

Unfortunately, I was concentrating not on what he said, but how he said it.

Once I started listening to what he was saying?  Incredible!  Nobody had covered the NFL like this before.  It was like he was doing color commentary from the field itself.  

Here's an example:

I couldn't have been more wrong about the guy.  He's incredible in the booth, and I'm a big fan.
