A friend posted a photo of this sign on Facebook.  I may have to make one up for our front door.

I particularly like the line about thin mints.

It is definitely autumn in Arizona.  Here's the evidence.

Only 10 more days until this year's election season is over.  Joy, joy, joy.  I only watch the evening news and while I read a lot on the Internet and look at a lot of political polls, I only put my trust in Nate Silver, who has a magnificent blog on the New York Times.  He is much less hyper than Fox News or MSNBC or the two campaigns.  And he correctly picked the winner in 49 of the 50 states in 2008 as well as picking the winner in each of the 35 Senate contests that year.  So rant away, supporters of both sides, I'll take Nate Silver.

What follows is a gratuitous critter picture.

"Uh, what are you looking for?"


  1. The promise of thin mints would definitely prompt me to move my fat ass off the couch to answer the door.

  2. As we live in an apartment with controlled access for residents only, we don't have problems any more with solicitors. But I do remember how it was with our last house.

    I should look up this Nate Silver fellow. Thanks for the tip.

    Smart monkey. *wink*
