Man Oh Manischewitz!

How did it get to be 5 p.m. Thursday? I had a 3 1/2 hour meeting and a couple of phone calls (I can't believe there are people who still haven't gotten the funding help from FEMA, but Bernie's office is in it now) and one person drop by and the day's gone. Am totally pissy over $40,000 of our taxes going to every little town in the US for new machines to read license plates. You wonder where the money goes? Stupidity like that, that's where. Thanks for nothing, "Homeland Security". When some rat bastid comes along and cuts our Social Security can we cash that shit in to stay in housing? I thought not.

Anyway, I have some ghostly goodness today.
Here is a site that's been around for a few years. It publishes ghost photos that the public sends in and generally does a good job of pointing out the BS from the unexplainable. It's got an immense gallery to peruse for free and if you're feeling solvent, has an extended site for a fee. I've never seen it but I'm told it's great. The free gallery is more than enough for me. Some of it is amazing.

And here's a news clip that nobody's been able to explain yet:

Off to assemble lasagna. Have fun ghosting!

The gallery is kind of fun. Th you tube video looks like someone was acting it up.
Enjoy your lasagna!

You have a way of drawing me into your posts, Austan. As to Homeland Security, its primary function is now its own perpetuation. We can accept it as a permanent tax drain created in panic, like TSA, and now too big to abolish.

More interesting is the junkyard "ghost", circling in a search pattern for valuables in wrecks. Kathy Henley said, "There warn't nobody back there...Alarm was on so nobody jumped the fence back there."

Back there.

Kathy doesn't go "back there" much.

Kathy sent somebody "back there" to check it out but there were lots of places to hide (or live). Ghosts have not the metabolism to produce a buttcrack heat signature for infrared cameras, or broad shoulders from which to hang overalls. I don't think we need apply to the next world to explain someone's skulk in this one.

Lasagna? My Italian friend Willie's 75th b'day is Saturday in Sonoma. Lasagna! Do you think I shall get some?

Okay, how the heck did it get to be two in the morning on Friday? Time zones, eh :)

Homeland Security doesn't makes things more secure when it comes to your own home. Priorities or what!

Those ghostly links. I could see right through them! :)

You take care, Gary

So is a used car dealership heaven or hell?

The Elephant's Child said...

I am still firmly in the dunno camp. Dunno either way, but am keepiing my options open. And, in response to Starting Over, a used car dealership is hell. For everyone. Alive or dead.

Munir! Where have all the Cronkites gone? All we have now are Vanna Whites and David Hasselhoffs reading teleprompters! Nobody does real investigative reporting anymore. :p

Austan said...

Geo.- Hey did you get lasagna yet? It's Saturday, we're waiting on a report of the birthday bash!

Austan said...

Gary- "Homeland" makes my regions twitch. This entire shambles of a world that Bush & Corps. created makes me pray for early death without reincarnation. I plan to haunt rich people.
Enjoy the weekend,

Austan said...

Arleen- I'd say Hell. Or at least Purgatory.

EC- I don't go so far as cashing in with Pascal's Wager, but we don't know. What we don't know will someday fill books. Or programs. Or whatever they read by then.
