He had the bad judgement to relate his concerns to a newspaper reporter. Apparently he was unaware that bacteria break down the coffee grounds.   The second occurred several years ago.  There was a TV movie titled The Morning After or something similar.  It was about the aftermath of a nuclear explosion on the US.  This idiot proclaimed to the media that the good citizens of Turlock did not have to worry because we were not downwind of any military targets.  How he came to that conclusion no one could figure out.  At that time there were active military installations to be found to the north, south, east, and west of us, and some of them were within a very few miles.

Hey Cassie, I didn't know you were in the central Valley! I grew up in Denair, my first boyfriend lived in Ripon...all those little towns....and yes, I remember Castle AFB, it was pretty close. Not big, but sure had some cute soldiers ;)

As a truck driver's kid I thought a mule was something else. I thought it was a motorized fork truck....

I told my friend we will have some chicks this spring, and she's like "Aw, congrats! They are pregnant!"  LOL!!!!! I didn't correct her. It was too funny! :gig

~I will love you forever Honeyma 1908 - 2013~ "It's not "goodbye", it's "I'll see you later"....."

 

 

 

 

 

The other day my mom asked if I got her e-mail, I said "no, not yet" she looked disappointed, and said "Oh! I get it, you're too busy on 'backward chickens!" Ha Ha Ha Ha Ha!!!
