State of the Union

Yes.

I ALWAYS watch.  Whoever is in the big White House, I watch.  Watching is more bearable when you hang out with Steve Green at vodkapundit.com

So off I go.

UPDATE

Most disturbing camera shot of the night.

Al Franken with the Joint Chiefs.

How arrogant is this guy moment?

Calling out the Supreme Court, in front of them, on National TV.

Ongoing Visual Disturbance of the night.

The Dems stand and applaud, the Pubs stand and applaud.  Pander to the left, pander to the right.  It made me sea sick.

Biggest (Really?) Disappointment of the Night.

The Republican response.  *sighs*.  What's with the practice/pretend State of Union set?  Can we just get the dude sitting in a chair thing?  At least it's over sooner............no applause.

Quality Not Quantity

One Starbucks Venti Latte a week is better than a McDonald's Latte everyday.

Happy Birthday Elvis!!


Happy 75th Birthday Elvis.

Yes, I'm out of the closet here.

HUGE Elvis fan.  Tired of being embarrassed about it.  The Husband knows and tolerates it well enough. 

I love Elvis.

A little clip of the best song in the best Elvis movie.

Why I Love Colorado

Today was one of those days when I realize how deep the roots in me run into my beloved state, Colorado.

Yesterday was grey and cold.............foggy in the morning, snowing by noon.  The temps dropped overnight.  My car thermometer said 4 degrees when I headed to work this morning.

But the sun was out.............not a cloud in sight.  Everything was covered in a blanket of powder snow.............like someone had scattered glitter everywhere.  Yes, it was freezing cold all day and the snow made that squeaky sound when you walked.  But somehow with all the sunshine............it didn't seem so cold.

 I know...............the traffic was terrible and made most of us late to work.  I don't work outdoors like many do..........I sit in a warm office and drive a car with a good heater...........

When March comes I will grow weary of the cold, and long for the gentle warm spring and the hot summer evenings.

But to me.........the best part of my native state, is the contrasts and changes.  Today was a crisp, clear, freezing January morning.  The foothills covered with a white blanket, rugged peaks in the distance.

I smiled all the way to work.
