To The Rescue!


Are any of you gentle readers concerned over the world financial meltdown and resulting economic downturn negatively impacting your retirement plans and causing your 401k to do a disappearing act?

If so, here's an item that will relieve the pain somewhat by improving the taste of the cheap swill you will be forced to drink in order to drown your sorrows.

The Ultrasonic Wine Ager, which looks like an ordinary ice bucket, takes 30 minutes to work and has already been given the thumbs up by an English winemaker.

Mr Jones, 53, [the inventor] said: "This machine can take your run-of-the-mill £3.99 bottle of plonk and turn it into a finest bottle of vintage tasting like it costs hundreds.

"It works on any alcohol that tastes better aged, even a bottle of paintstripper whisky can taste like an 8-year-aged single malt.


Due to the deflationary pressures of the looming economic downturn the projected cost of this item is bound to be reduced from the projected £350 (US $396) unless of course, the Federal Reserve or U.S. Treasury elect to do another "bail out".

:) Gallows humor, my friend!

We’re advising our kids to get together a disaster kit and enough money to get out of the city should the unthinkable happen, and Obama loses in a tight race. The riots and the meltdown will make anything we’ve seen in the past look tame. You think Bush derangement syndrome has been bad.

We hope we’re wrong.

And by the way - here's hoping for a HUGE decisive landslide upset surprising amazing McCain/Palin win!

You have that right, my dear Rose...you should be okay up there in the woods...get the kids home.

On the other hand....if you like vodka....run a medium to fair grade through a mita filter three times.

You will be astounded at the difference in smooth....almost a Belvedere out of dreg vodka...

It's the filtering with distilled spirit.

Former Ambassador under President Clinton, Mark Erwin, wrote today that he is endorsing John McCain for President. Click here to read the entire article.

Sen. Obama does not yet have sufficient leadership experience. He has never led so much as a Boy Scout troop. I am not comfortable thinking of him as the leader of the greatest nation on earth as his first real executive job. In 2007, his running mate, Sen. Joe Biden, said, “I think he can be ready, but right now I don’t believe he is. The presidency is not something that lends itself to on-the-job training.”

More than 100 former American ambassadors are endorsing John McCain and Sarah Palin for president and vice president.

Then again - New 8th Grade English Textbooks Now Contain 15 Page Section on Obama! (No Hillary, No McCain, No Palin, No Bush)

Obama's doing more than picking out the drapes...
