POTPOURRI

Well, as expected Willard Mitt(ens?) Romney won the Florida primary.  Leroy Newt Gingrich was a distant second.  Which just goes to prove one thing about American politics: the dirtier your campaign, the more success you're likely to have.

After watching CNN project the winner the instant the polls closed, we quickly lost interest.  Tried a show on the Comedy Channel but it was too obscene for SWMBO and I wasn't paying attention.  Switched over to PBS and watched an entertaining program on Annie Oakley and a second one on Jesse James.  SWMBO is related to the Missouri outlaw but this program didn't make her feel proud.

Had seconds of Chicken Piccata and Fettucini Alfredo tonight and it was just as good as the other night.  SWMBO cleaned up a loaf of white bread I made the other day by turning it into excellent garlic toast to accompany the meal.  Butter pecan ice cream for dessert.  Damn!  We just eat too good.  Which may explain why we're both constantly nattering about how to lose weight.

My friend, Tom, was on his horse again today about Facebook and how we, the contributors, should share in the wealth the company is making because we provide the content.  I didn't get it when we went around about this awhile back and I still don't get it.  I seriously doubt if anything I or Tom might contribute to the conversation could be worth a sou.  But we have agreed to disagree.

I hear the Indianapolis Colts absent quarterback Peyton Manning has said today that he is not ready to retire.  That kind of statement usually means he's about to retire.  We'll see.  Thank goodness baseball season is only a few weeks from beginning.

The Stupor Bowl is Sunday.  I'm picking New England over New York.  But, as I have said often, I don't really follow professional football.  Tom Brady just looks to me to be unbeatable.

My computer has been running erratically slow since it was last worked on last Friday.  I found some instructions to change the size of virtual memory and did that tonight.  We'll see what happens.  I may need more RAM (random access memory - you didn't think I knew that, did you?  'Course I have no idea what random access memory means.)

Oy ve.  I think I'll call it a night.

  2. I cannot believe the circus that is going on with the Republican Primary, if it wasn't so sad it would be amusing.
    Tell your buddy he may soon be able to buy Shares in FB, I wouldn't be surprise that before long they may charge us to use it. I hope not, it is a fun way to keep in touch with family and friends around the world.
    Your dinner sounds so good, you do eat well at your house.....:-)Hugs

  3. Hey you ... I just wanted to pop over and say thank you so much for your kind comment on my blog yesterday - very much appreciated :) x

    American politics seem so very complicated compared to the system here in the UK - but we watch the whole circus with interest anyway.

    I put extra RAM in my laptop and the desktop myself - if I can do it, anyone can do it. Just buy yourself the sticks and look up how to do it on google or via YouTube. My systems are both Dell, and the good people there were kind enough to email me with pictures!

  4. Thanks for the computer lesson. I always wondered what a male sheep had to do with my computer.

    I didn't watch a second of the FL coverage last night. Why should I? What more can they yap about?

    I'll probably watch the Stupor bowl, if for nothing more than the commercials. But, like you, I'm not into pro football. College FB is my thing.

  5. We watched a series about spies in WWII - it was pretty interesting - especially the part about Lucky Luciano (sp?).

    I can't wait for baseball!
