Mixed Bag

 LG has not been posting much lately, as you may have noticed.  A bunch of things have been going on, including snow, blackouts and work issues, plus, LG is losing some of his blogging momentum.  We'll see how it goes ... In the meantime, here's a photo from LG's trip, currently in progress, to Southern California. 
As you can see, the airlines are not only cheaping put these days by charging for checked luggage and on-board meals, but they're also flying closer to the ground to save gas.  This was while we were flying over Denver's airport on our way to San Diego.
Now on to some recent Facebook postings. Only the highlights (yes, there were plenty even less funny than these!)
This is how bad the economy is these days: Went to see a filming of "Who Wants to be a Millionaire" yesterday and learned that they've now changed the name to "Who Wants Extra Foodstamps?" Seriously.
"Slow Down" traffic signs annoy me. How do they know how fast you're going in the first place? They don't. To make my point, I always slow down to 1 mile-per-hour whenever I see one of those signs. I think the people behind me support my principled stand because they always honk their support enthusiastically. Some even give the bird to the sign.
Man, I'm tired today. I was at a three-way last night, it was wild.

The people at the other two stop signs almost collided, neither stopped fully. It was crazy, nearly a huge wreck. I was talking about a three-way stop intersection, of course. What did you think?!
When you think about it, the name "Pottery Barn" makes no sense. When was the last time you heard someone say "That's like closing the barn door after the pottery gets out?"
This is going too far now. A bunch of pre-schoolers in my town are mad at the new PBS schedule of shows, so they've started an "Occupy Sesame Street" movement.
Steven Seagal is going to patrol the U.S. - Mexico border (see He'll do a great job of keeping illegals out of our country if he uses the same acting skills that help him keep people out of theaters. 
 As always, thanks for stopping by!


  1. We understand that life gets in the way sometimes and blogging just isn't on the list of priorities, but it's good to see your sense of humour hasn't taken a dip, along with the dip in frequency of posting :)

  2. You are still funny...even when short of time!

  3. HA! How about "Slow Men Working?" Just how slow are they and can't they work any faster?

  4. Lost blogging mojo or not, you're still funny.

    And I think we all are struggling a little bit with blogging. Life man....


  5. Sometimes our sense of "loss of momentum" is the beginning of something better. You clearly haven't lost your touch. I am still laughing at your Steven Seagal comment. Keep up the great work. EFH

  6. How about "slow children"? And why are warnings on the street written upside down? OK. I get "only turn left", but "ahead stop"?

  7. Great post LG...Especially about Steven Seagal! What a hasbeen.

  8. How could you even THINK about not blogging anymore???? There would be a huge hole in the blogging world. You are one of the funniest people out there and I look forward to every single one of your posts. I loved your FB messages, especially the "Slow Down" one. Ha!! You're right! They don't know how fast you were going!


The LG Report appreciates all comments, thanks for taking the time; Karma will probably award you a winning lotter ticket or something. The "or something" being more likely. But thanks again!
