LG continues to post infrequently during the summer, as you may have noticed. He also hasn't been able to read others' blogs as frequently as he'd like, although he's trying. We do have an interview coming up soon, however, with Bouncin' Barb of This & That (click there to be transported). It promises to be a doozie, especially since she's consulting with her good friend Sandra of Absolutely Narcissism.
And at some point in the not-too-distant future, we'll have an interview with Carol of Facing Fifty with Humour, focusing on her hot new book Mini Skirts and Laughter Lines. But until all of this happens, we'll just hit you with some of LG's recent Facebook postings, which he enjoys (even if nobody else does.)
[Note: LG is not an avid Facebooker, although he does dabble in the medium. If you'd like to be friends with LG on Facebook so that you can read these cutting-edge postings when they first come out, e-mail him by clicking HERE and include your Facebook name. He'll friend you because he's not very discerning...]
Here now, are some of LG's recent posts:
Anthropologists in Brazil just discovered an ancient tribe of 300 people deep in the rain forest. These people had no previous contact with civilization. They had no running water, no electricity and only 2 Starbucks.
|These Starbucks have bigger straws than we're used to.|
Those hoarder shows fascinate me. I just bought a DVD set of a season of "Hoarders." Actually, I bought 655 DVD box sets, every room of my house is full of them, stacked to the ceiling right along with all those books, clothes and newspapers. Those nutty hoarder people really have mental issues. Glad I'm not like them.
New tourism motto: "Aruba: Where your troubles (and your traveling companions) disappear."
Being an interesting person = Good. Being a "Person of Interest" = Not So Good.
The US Postal service trying to layoff 120,000 workers. But they're going to mail out the layoff notices, so they only expect 90,000 people to receive them.
|The U.S. Postal Service is a bit behind the times; this stamp was part of the "New Cars" Series last year.|
Pennsylvania, like most states, is really getting desperate for tourist dollars. They just changed the state motto from "You've got a friend in Pennsylvania" to "You've got a friend with benefits in Pennsylvania."
U.S. troop pull-out in Afghanistan is expected to proceed according to plan. In unrelated news, U.S. Air Force drone planes mistakenly bombed Standard & Poor's headquarters.
The Dow Jones Industrial Average and the average American family's combined IQ had something in common on this day of "The Jersey Shore's" premiere episode in Italy: Both plunged more than 500 points.
I see a ratings agency affirmed America's AAA rating but with negative implications. One day they love you, the next they hate you. Man, those ratings people are Moody.
Our Congress is ridiculous. That bunch of procrastinators puts everything off until the last minute. Who do they think they are, me? PS I meant to post this last week but got sidetracked.
Copying what's successful in TV has always been in vogue but is going too far. "Mad Men" has been such a hit for AMC that they're now rolling out "Slightly Perturbed Men."

The manager of my local KFC was held up last night. As he left the store with a bag of cash, a robber held out a gun and said "I know you have a lot of money in there, spork it over!"
|Me, answering the door.|
