Here's your morbid article for the day ... who would do something like this?
Arizona casket mystery solved

Tuesday, June 27, 2006; Posted: 9:41 a.m. EDT (13:41 GMT)

TUCSON, Arizona (AP) -- An empty casket with a military seal discovered in the desert was discarded by a mortuary after the deceased's family requested that the body be exhumed and cremated, authorities said.

Deputies were called to the desert area near Interstate 10 Saturday after two people playing paintball found the casket, which was metallic silver with a U.S. Army insignia on it. ...

Deputy Dawn Barkman, a spokeswoman for the Pima County Sheriff's Office, said the casket was taken to a landfill after the body was exhumed in late May.

Someone took it from the landfill, then dumped it, he said."

Twenty dollars... this is SO funny

On their wedding night, the young bride approached her new husband and asked for $20.00 fortheir first lovemaking encounter. In his highlyaroused state, herhusband readily agreed. This scenario wasrepeated each time they made love, for more than 30 years, with himthinking that it was a cute way for her to afford new clothes and otherincidentals that she needed. Arriving home aroundnoon one day, she was surprised to find her husband in a very drunken state. During the nextfew minutes, he explained that his employer was going through a processof corporate downsizing, and he had been let go. It was unlikely that, atthe age of 59, he'd be able to find another position thatpaid anywhere near what he'd been earning, and therefore, they werefinancially ruined. Calmly, his wifehanded him a bank book which showed more than thirty years of steadydeposits and interest totaling nearly million. Then she showed him certificatesof deposits issued by the bank which were worth over $2 millio…

Folgers - Happy Mornings

This was inflicted on me, I thought I should share. Be prepared to be disturbed.

Ah ... firmness

Ah, the pure bliss of sleeping on a firm mattress. Of not slipping inexorably towards the middle, of not waking up with an aching back. Yummy.

background: last night I decided to change the sheets and flip the mattress, not in that order. What a difference! Clean sheets, firm mattress=good night's sleep.

Can I go back to bed now? =)

I about rolled off the bed .... but this is great creatively and has a great message.

... and I have a new one for the WNBA. Yay! Sparks are winning again after losing in OT to New York Liberty last week. But reading the scores, I almost feel sorry for Chicago Sky. They are losing to everyone they play. Though they are a very pretty team ...

Go Sparks!!!!! (Portland got rid of the wrong team when they got rid of the Portland Fire).

Improv Everywhere Mission: Best Buy

This reminds me of the costume improv group here in Portland that goes to clubs. But this looks like more fun. One guy used it as a "take your daughter to work day". =)

Missions

April 23rd, 2006
Best Buy

DV Cams: Agents Shafer, EMartin, Reeves, Carlson
Digital Photography: Agents Nicholson, Todd
Mission Inspired By: Agent Slavinsky



The idea for this mission was submitted by a stranger via email. Agent Slavinsky wrote in to suggest I get either a large group of people in blue polo shirts and khakis to enter a Best Buy or a group in red polo shirts and khakis to enter a Target. Wearing clothing almost identical to the store's uniform, the agents would not claim to work at the store but would be friendly and helpful if anyone had a question. There aren't any Targets in Manhattan, so I decided to go with the two-story Best Buy on 23rd Street."

Superchick "We Live" video

Not sure if I like it or not ... Love the song, not sure if I like the video though. Though it could be that I haven't watched MTV in almost a decade ...

You know what sucks ...

Eating delicious berries and then getting diarrhea that not even Imodium seems unable to stop. And cramps and general upset stomach. Josh has a touch of it too. Hrm, should I take this as a sign that I am meant to be a stay-at-home mom for now? Every time I try to work, I end up getting sick and doing all those things that employers tend to hate, like getting sick and being late to work. I'm a good employee … when I make it to work … urgh … tummy ….. {Annette}

FW: Women over 30

I just had to post this. I laughed out loud at the last line. =) Annette
===========
I find it interesting that the meanest life, the poorest existence, is attributed to God's will, but as human beings become more affluent, as their living standard and style begin to ascend the material scale, God descends the scale of responsibility at commensurate speed.

Thought you ladies might appreciate this, even if Annette is still a little too young. :) Sara
In case you missed it on 60 Minutes...... This is for all you girls 30 years and over... And for those who are  turning 30, and for those who are scared of moving into their 30's... AND for guys who are scared of girls over 30!!!!... This was a monologue by Andy Rooney from the CBS show, 60 Minutes. Andy Rooney said: As I grow in age, I value women who are over 30 most of all. Here are just a few reasons why: A woman over 30 will never wake you in the middle of the night t…

Google Video?

Hrm, I've been using YouTube but I might as well move things over to Google since ... hrm, I use Blogger, Picasa, have used Hello until Picasa got more integrated, use Google Calendar to stay updated with Tim use the personalized Google homepage, if I didn't download my RSS subscriptions to Outlook, Google would probably be my preferred reader .... I have a GMail account (which automatically gets me a Google Video account) and I use Google for the majority of my research ... the only thing that I didn't like/find useful was the google desktop


gee whiz, I am becoming such a Google-phile, it's not funny anymore!!!!

What happens when combine 200 liters of Diet Coke and over 500 Mentos mints?

It's a hysterical and spectacular mint-powered version of the Bellagio Fountains in Las Vegas, brought to you by the mad scientists at EepyBird.com.


Now this is a good use of Diet Coke and Mentos :)

Epiphany

Music: Imagine Me – Kirk Franklin (Hero)

I’ve been thinking about the fact that I know I have sinned against the LORD and yet feel no remorse. The epiphany – you don’t usually feel sorry about something unless you do something you feel is morally repugnant or you hurt someone you truly care for or have some sort of positive relationship with,
or you are just so amoral that you don’t care. On the one hand, I have been an adulteress for so long that I don't find it morally repungnant for myself anymore. It's part of who I am. Sometime around the time I turned 21 I destroyed the part of me that cared about that. For the second, I realized today that I may have never had a real relationship with the Lord. I feel no loss, no remorse, no ... nothing. Just the realization that something should bethere, might have been there once. 29 years of ... lip service? faking it? was it ever real?

In the whole fiasco that has consumed Tim and I for the last 8 months (wow! that long already?) I…
