Ya gotz to laugh.....

Four guys have been going to the same deer camp for many years.. Two days before the group was to leave, Darwin's wife puts her foot down and tells him he isn't going. Darwin's friends are very upset that he couldn't go, but what can they do. Two days later the three get to the camping site only to find Darwin sitting there with a tent set up, firewood gathered, and dinner cooking on the fire. Dang man, how long you been here, and how did you talk your wife into letting you go? Well, I've been here since yesterday.

Yesterday evening, I was sitting in my chair and my wife came up behind me and put her hands over my eyes and said, 'Guess who?' I pulled her hands off, and she was wearing a brand new see thru nightie. She took my hand and pulled me to our bedroom. The room had candles and rose pedals all over. On the bed she had ropes! She told me to tie her to the bed, and I did. And then she said, Do whatever you want. So, Here I am!!!!

Meet Hank- our new tribe mate!!!

Hank was a shelter dog rescued from the Roscommon area as an owner surrender. He is very well behaved, a little scared at times, and has the softest ears going for a dog. He is the first boy dog added to the tribe's history so we will see how that goes. His first play was to climb the kids clubhouse and slide down the slide.

The cats are not impressed.

Over the past forty years, public school employment has risen 10 times faster than enrollment (see chart). There are only 9 percent more students today, but nearly twice as many public school employees. To prove that rolling back this relentless hiring spree by a few years would hurt student achievement, you’d have to show that all those new employees raised achievement in the first place. That would be hard to do… because it never happened.

Picture of oil well in Gulf

Amazing that the technology exists to do this. Stopping the leak may only be possible with the relief wells.
