Clicking the header will take you to a strange land called Nano Photography. Only it isn't. Photography. See the comments to discover what it really is. (Scientists with too much time on their hands?) . I'm still on my revolutionary kick. About salt and why we're being poisoned by it and by who(m). Have a look at this: . A world convention of brewers was held in Amsterdam. The presidents of the world's greatest breweries were on hand. As usual, a convention dinner brought them together on the first evening. When asked what they would like to drink, the CEO of Miller said, "A Miller Lite, please."The president of Anheuser Busch said, "I'll have a Michelob." Adolph Coors requested a Coors. And so it went, around the long table, each president requesting a brew from his own company. Finally, the waiter came to Arthur Guinness. "And you, sir?" he queried."I'll have a coke," was Guinness's reply. The waiter was shocked. "A COKE?!? Wouldn't you rather have a Guinness, sir?" Arthur looked at the waiter, then gestured at his companions. "If they're not drinking beer, then neither am I". . Oh, yes, been meaning to put this up: Most Dangerous States 2008 - AOL Money & Finance Be sure to view number 3. . And this one: Unhealthiest States 2008 - AOL Money & Finance Look who's number three here. . One Friday morning, a teacher came up with a novel way to motivate her class. She told them that she would read a quote and the first student to correctly identify who said it would receive the restof the day off. She started with, "This was England's finest hour." Little Suzi instantly jumped up and said, "Winston Churchill." "Congratulations!" said the teacher. "You may go home." The teacher then said, "Ask not what your country can do for you." Before she could finish this quote, another young lady belted out,"John F. Kennedy." "Very good!" exclaimed the teacher. "You may go home, too." Irritated that he had missed two golden opportunities, Little Johnny blurted out, "I wish those girls would just shut up." Upon overhearing this comment, the outraged teacher demanded to know who said it. Johnny instantly rose to his feet and said, "Bill Clinton. I'll see you Monday!" . Some rules I found hidden in one of Schotzy's beds:
  • Always give generously. A small bird or rodent left on the bed tells them, I care.
  • Climb your way to the top. That's why the drapes are there.
  • Curiosity never killed anything except maybe a few hours.
  • Find your place in the sun. Especially if it happens to be on that nice pile of warm, clean laundry.
  • If you're not receiving enough attention, try knocking over several expensive antique lamps.
  • Life is hard, then you nap.
  • Make your mark in the world. Or at least spray in each corner.
  • Never sleep alone when you can sleep on someone's face.
  • Variety is the spice of life. One hour ignore people, the next hour annoy them.
  • When in doubt, cop an attitude.
  • Never give a human an even break
. Have a fun weekend.

With all that open space, how can you be an unhealthy state?

I really liked the beer joke. But I'm more of an ale guy than a fan of stout, Guinness or otherwise.

The nano-photo link is verrah cool, as well. As for NM and its low rankings... well, "eye of the beholder," and all that. Not to flog a dead horse, but things don't seem all that bad here at the end of the zia, so to speak. Rural vs. metro, methinks... reservation life, aside. (Can one still say "reservation?" Or is that not-PC? I'm afraid I don't know the politically correct term, if there is one...)

"Querkey charged with a salt."

Meanwhile back at the salt mines, Cat; you might want to avoid the Farmland brand of various mystery meats. They used to have a fair product but seem to be loading up deteriorating quality products with salt across the board. I think I might use the 8 remaining rolls of their sausage for varmint control. I damned near killed our 2 dogs by letting them have the fat off my multiple boilings desalination experiment. Maybe Farmland bought in to a desalination plant or is owned by a cardiac facility conglomerate.

Thanks for the blog and the entertainment it provides.

I don't know if its nano photography, but I like the idea of using grass as photographic film. (grass is light sensitive).

I hear you Moose, but when you have a state where 40% or more of the children can't afford to see a doctor, where illegal aliens bring their diseases to share with us and the governor soends moree than a yer out of state ignoring the citizens, its easy to be number 3.

Catmoves said...

Buck I prefer real beer, too. But the joke was too good to pass up.
On this site, Buck, PC is not only not recognized, it is reviled.

Catmoves said...

GROAN. Lin, you're pretty salty yourself.
As for the Farmland brand, It is their bacon that has become to salty for us to eat.
Mebbe you're right about them buying a water supply company.
What happened to the dogs? Are you doing a post on your site about it?

Catmoves said...

Yesbut, I thought it was pretty great stuff, too. And thank you for your kind comment.
