I hope everyone is having a great day!
But don’t forget we have a lot of work to do here in Wisconsin…
“SCIENTISTS have warned that Christmas lights are bad for the planet due to huge electricity waste and urged people to get energy efficient festive bulbs.
CSIRO researchers said householders should know that each bulb turned on in the name of Christmas will increase emissions of greenhouse gases.”
H/T: Watts Up With That?

Sorry about that so here is the week in review:
Monday, December 8, 2008
A big thank you to all of you that contributed to the Arthritis Foundation, because of you I was able to raise $475!!! Now I know that it was short of my goal but in tough times you just have to face facts!
The Las Vegas Marathon was a perfect race for me the weather was great for running (50 degrees and overcast) and due to the training I was able to put together a new personal record…even after completing 4 other marathons this year!! My time was 4:45:05.
Racine County received $3,877,000 in USDA subsidies in 2006.

Last week was pretty easy with those nice big blue roofs and CU got it right they are Culvers!

Woodward announces for Caledonia Village Trustee, vows to run aggressive campaign to earn seat
I know that the Obama camp (set up behind the fictitious “office of the President Elect”) is saying that Obama is clean but a shooting star in the Democrat party, out of Chicago, with ties to the Governor, an unrepentant domestic terrorist, and a felon (can you say Rezko?) can not be as clean as he has stated.
Think about it…the guy that will soon be president has gone to a church and has been baptized, married, and had his children baptized by a pastor that says “God da** America!” but then claims that “that isn’t the pastor I knew.”
How long before the ties between the Chicago machine and Obama really come to light?
Interesting…New Scientist: Hot landslides may have set off mystery wildfires
Democrats don’t do that!
What is going on here?
Have I lost my mind?
Yeah…Obama isn’t part of the Chicago machine…and I’m an Olympic Sprinter.
“In 2007, Toyota sold 9.37 milion cars world wide.
They MADE 17.7 BILLION dollars.
In 2007, GM sold 9.37 million cars world wide.
They LOST 38.7 BILLION dollars.
We’re talking bailout WHY?”

I need to give credit once again to CU for hitting this one out of the park! I just want to know how CU figured it out?!?!
The country was Luxemburg!
On my 1-10 scale this week’s country is only a 3.
Clinton for Sec. of State
Holder as Attorney General
Richardson as Commerce Sec.
Orszag as Teasury Sec. (although I like this one!)
Same old names not a lot of “change” here.
UAW not willing to work a deal…no bailout.
I do have a big question though…shouldn’t the auto execs have done this years ago? You know what I mean…say NO to the UAW?!?
Well this year I will not be in town to run it since I will be in Las Vegas running my 5th marathon of the year!
Since the Arthritis Foundation is important to me I’ve decided to dedicate the last 5k of my marathon (a marathon is 26.2 miles or 42.2 kilometers!!) to the cause. I’d like to raise $750 and I am half way there with less than a week to go!!!
So I ask you to please click on the picture below and donate to the Arthritis Foundation!
Didn’t anyone check?!?!
Wow! Now that was a hell of a feat! At least it wasn’t here in Wisconsin.
20 year old student…I’m thinking alcohol was involved!
Reuters: Obese have right to 2 airline seats
