Looking forward to the November elections so Obama can have that second term he's worked so hard for. Hawaiian Ninja 2012!! Also to the Dems taking the House back from the teapublicans so he can get his stuff done.

I'm just hoping I have a better gardening season then last year and spend as much quality time with family as I can. Especially those who are sick.

So, anyway, it's the end of 2011, and I'm reading these flash cards, silently, the answer implied. Up comes the card that says, "When will the fantasy end...?"

... the world stood still I watched as I held my breath a silhouette I thought I knew came through and someone spoke to me whispered in my ear this fantasy's for you fantasies are "in" this year....

Getting the heck out of KS. The worst decision I ever made. Have been severely abused and have PTSD thanks to all of the yahoos and southern-justice dishonesty here.

A friend and I both had BeerTenders. Two thumbs down. I got mine from Amazon.com on the cheap. I gave it a grade of C and sold it on Craigslist. I'd say just get an old fridge that works, drill a hole in the door and rig it with a tap.

Google Ben Breedlove if this link don't work. If this ever happens to you it changes your outlook on life and after. It happened to me.

I am looking forward to commenters leaving politics out of the OTS. And opening the bottle of Jack Daniels I got for Christmas. Good to see Whitney back

Wow, the "natural medicine" guy cracks me up! I'm also expecting a lot of physical changes to the planet, you know, like spring, followed by summer, followed by autumn. And those coriolis winds moving the clouds all around! Tragedy looms...

I am looking forward to spring, longer sun light with spring and warm weather. Looking forward to Cotton Bowl as well.

Looking forward to Obama winning so I laugh my --- off at the conservatives who have not figured out that the republican candidates are more whack then Obama and cannot carry middle American on the East or West Coast.

(By the way, I support Obama by default because while I am liberal, I think Obama proved to be a wimp and should have fought harder against the tea party dweebs. Bill Clinton would not have backed down).

Also, for the local conservatives that think Obama has no chance, clue in you idiots, you live in Kansas. So, that is not reflective of the rest of the nation......as Kansas is full of stupid red necks, conservative pretenders, and a foolish religious jokes wanting to tell you how to live and that is not what it is like on either Coast where everyone lives with enough votes that calls the shots....

(I have been trying to be more mellow but will go with the above)

Well, and considering that I'm going to Hawaii in 3 weeks, the rest of the year may be downhill after January!

I'm also looking forward to the gems of wisdom that surely will come from Kim Jung Un, the new guy. And the startling epiphanies of Hugo Chavez. Now that the U.S. has developed the cancer causing ray gun maybe we take some of these loonies out. Does Kim play golf like his father did?

In other 2012 news: "...As of Jan. 3, 2012, interstate and intergovernmental access to your child’s personal information will be practically unlimited. The federal government will have a de facto nationwide database of supposedly confidential student information...."

If things keep going the way they have over the last three years you can count on it, Dork...Plan on getting in line. But, then again, you DO have to qualify for unemployment benefits - Odeo.

The looks on those faces when the sun comes up Dec. 22. I also look to raise the consciousness of young people so they are aware of buffoonery and quacks out in the world purporting to cure illness. There are snake oil salesmen behind every tree these days.
