NEW ORLEANS SAINTS THE NFC CHAMPIONS!!!

The New Orleans Saints are the NFC Champions and they are going to Miami for the Super Bowl....

CONGRATULATIONS SAINTS! CONGRATULATIONS CAROL, MARY & THE WHO DAT NATION!

Carol said...
Well Mary and I are proud also to have our Saints in the Super Bowl. Like I've mentioned before, we have some friendly, happy people down here, some great food, even though it's a little high in fat and salt, some interesting scenery if you like our swamps, but we don't have much else we can brag about. Now we have our Saints and I do think the Universe wanted us to have that win. I want to say that that Favre really impressed me. Not being a avid football fan, I've never watched him before. That man has a lot of heart. I think if he lost a leg, he would have still hopped back into that game and given it his all.

Again there is much joy and pride in New Orleans and Louisiana...Well deserved...so once again....Congratulations everyone....

Coreen said...

And I brought Carol's comment about Elizabeth Warren over, just in case anyone wants to discuss....

Carol said:

'Same thing I was thinking:

The Woman Democrats Need

This is exactly the kind of person we all need to save us, not just Democrats.'

Coreen said...

Here's a working link to the Boston.com about Elizabeth Warren...

As Carol said, I couldn't agree more....

The Woman Democrats Need

Carol said...

Thanks for the post Coreen.

Can you imagine if all the people who represent us in our government were just like Ms Warren. Someone who really gives a damn and I don't think she could ever be bought.

Coreen said...

You are welcome...

I would have done it sooner, but wanted to have your thoughts & the latest pics of the new 'America's Team'....

And how about if all the people who represented
us were more like you....

Chloe said...

"Like I've mentioned before, we have some friendly, happy people down here, some great food, even though it's a little high in fat and salt, some interesting scenery if you like our swamps, but we don't have much else we can brag about."

Carol, I think you had plenty to brag about before this win. What can be more important than 'friendly, happy people, great food, and interesting scenery'.

This win just gives you even more to be proud of, and will bring people together in a common goal 'and' pride. Not to mention a whole lot of excitement.

On to the Super Bowl Carol!

It comes to pass: Saints vs. Colts
"How you start is a footnote. How you finish is history.

The best starts in the NFL this season belonged to the Indianapolis Colts at 14-0 and the New Orleans Saints at 13-0." http://www.usatoday.com/SPORTS/usaedition/2010-01-25-nfl25_cv_U.htm?csp=34

Chloe said...

Nice post Coreen. You caught the excitement.

Coreen said...

Thanks Chloe,

Caught the excitement from Carol...

And the rainstorm is here this a.m., its pouring, windy, & dark still...need to go out
& get the papers & feed the birds...see you later....

Chloe said...

Mary, Are you as excited as Carol? I bet you are, huh. Congratulations!

Chloe said...

"Caught the excitement from Carol..."

... me too Coreen.

Sounds like you're in for a little extra work this morning Coreen.

Thursday, we have another cold front coming in. It's supposed to be 26 Friday night, so we're going to have to get ready to go into emergency mode again. I also saw rain for us in the next few days, but I think it's before the cold. Oh well, what comes must go.

don1one said...

Yay Carol. Though it would be really nice if the Super Bowl was actually help in NO with the injection of money.

What's wonderful about Warren is not just her injection of common sense into the discussion on monetary policy but her ability to communicate that with everyday people. I'm really glad to see her and Volcker getting a voice in the administration.

don1one said...

Now this is a way to celebrate a wedding.

Coreen said...

And who says Harold Ford isn't running for the
NY Senate seat....

Practical, realistic views that may not be
well received by the so-called 'dem base', but
if NY doesn't want Harold, I know CT would welcome him big time.....

Democrats, Get Down to Business

Chloe said...

Don! That wedding video you link was 'so' funny! Wherever did you find it? (You weren't there taking the pics, were you?)

Wouldn't it be great if all weddings were that original, and took into account the couples (and their friends) personality and sense of fun.

Thanks for linking it. Hope you're enjoying the nice weather and Florida.

don1one said...

I wish it had been one of mine. Just a youtube video making it's rounds. But after seeing all of the weddings where people made themselves miserable by having everything perfect, it was nice to see.

I have a new room with a southern exposure. Nice soon, cool breeze, and overlooking a pond. If you have to work, this is the way to do it.

Chloe said...

"If you have to work, this is the way to do it."

The 'only' way to do it. That room sounds great!

I love parking myself in rooms on the south side of my house throughout the winter. On sunny days, it's gorgeous. In the summer I head for the north side though (ain't easy to stay cool in Houston during the summer months), and the view of greenery, birds and any animals I can spot is what keeps me going.

Solar said...

Out the door, but peeked in and want to say hi......A year later, and not they realize that E. Warren, has something to say.????

Carol,

There are a lot more people that are going to go through what the people of Haiti are going thru.

As Jamie likes to point out so often: We are overpopulated, the world is ..and we build homes and cities in the way of the areas that mother nature releases a lot of pressures that build up over time....

Cat Man Do, the Capital of Nepal, is build in an area, that when the earth is ready to release it's pressure there.....it won't be pretty....what Jamie never say's but has hinted at several times, is that if we weed out, by plague, or by other means, the overpopulated countries that doesn't look like ours, or our allies, that will solve out problem.....some of our own cities are not in a good area either. California comes to mind, right away, glad that I didn't build a million $ house on top of a mud slide, ...,,,over and over again, just cos I like the view....

don1one said...

Of course that should be 'sun'.

That sounds wonderful Chloe. You're in a great place for birdwatching, relatively close to the Gulf and all of its estuaries.

Solar said...

Don,

Thanks for taking us with U on your interviews for work. Good luck on all of them...more details of what U see of interest on the road....are the gals wearing short skirts yet?? short hair, long hair, legs...what about legs.....you know give us the local scenery....oh and if you want, you can tell us about what the area looks like also....

don1one said...

Interviews are over Solar. I'm just staying here because I like the weather. I get more done, and since I'm paid hourly that easily pays for the motel room.

I took some photos from the Sunken Gardens yesterday. I'll get them up when I'm back home on my better computer.

I've seen a few ladies whose legs go all the way up to here, but low 70s is chilly for this area. Not much skin showing. :^)

Solar said...

Thanks Don,

I didn't have to go out after all, sometimes a timely phone call can solve a lot of problems, and my two way radios, I just couldn't be with out .....it is the best way of being on the job, without being there....That is why I train, all of my workers, in the way that i do things...they are allowed to vary, only when something is not working right....I don't have much work right now, but some is better than nothing...

Coreen, The dancing Machine...don't put on that mini skirt just yet...its getting colder again, and will be at your door soon...get out those warm jammies again....pic please.!

Solar said...

I haven't read all of this article yet, but found it very interesting already.


outbursts put him in conflict with the Treasury Department under Larry Summers, who reportedly forced Stiglitz to resign (2000), presumably for not being a team player. Notwithstanding his government career setback, Stiglitz was selected as a recipient of the 2001 Nobel Prize for Economics.

Despite heavy pressure from the Treasury to silent him, Stiglitz has been the courageous voice of progressive economics, criticizing the structural defects of central banking, deregulated free-market fundamentalism and predatory globalization. Stiglitz is now a University Professor at Columbia and one of the world's most respected and cited economists as a courageous defender of the defenseless.

As Professor Stiglitz knows, the "moral depravity" he so detests about the current financial crisis began much earlier.

I wrote on this site almost seven years ago (see The Dangers of Derivatives, Asia Times Online, May 23, 2002): "The financial crises faced by newly industrialized economies (NIEs) in the 1990s were significantly different from the foreign debt crises in the developing countries in the previous decade. Different forms of foreign funds flowed to different recipients in developing countries during the two periods. More importantly, derivatives emerged as an integral part of fund flows in the 1990s.

"The Dangers of derivatives"

Solar said...

Don, U have me thinking ( will turn the swamp into a little bit of MAN, talk today..so watch out pinkssssss.!!! oops looks like I do have to go...later.

Solar said...

Forgot, Don, with your leg up to here comment, you made me think of that old song...legs.

Long beautiful legs, down to here, give me long beautiful legs, as long as I can wear .......something, something.......
Love-Rock Musical lyrics by James Rado & Gerome Ragni ...

Solar said...

That should make Maria change her diapers a few times, until i get back huh???

Chloe said...

"You're in a great place for birdwatching, relatively close to the Gulf and all of its estuaries."

Yes, I'm becoming more aware of that all the time Don. Beautiful birds through here, and tons of them.

I just looked up exactly how far we are from Galveston (on Yahoo) and it says 95 miles. Houston is about half that distance, so I guess we're only about 45-50 miles from Houston. I thought farther, because it takes forever in heavy traffic. Our temp here is real close, usually just a couple of degrees cooler.

Actually, the temp in Louisiana, where Carol lives, is almost identical to here. We're far enough north that hurricanes don't get us, aside from some rough weather they bring with them, and I'm most grateful for that. I'd never be able to handle the stress, with the amount of animals I have.

don1one said...

I lived near the Pacific in California. Salt water marshes with fresh water near are very productive. There were always lots of visitors around.

Our temps didn't change much year round.

Ivy Green said...

Not sure how long the wireless service will let me stay on...it's been either knocking me off or not letting me on since I got here. I am the little spot on our map that says "Castle Rock."

Congrats to the Saints Fans...we got here in time to see the "fifth quarter." That was really exciting...all here were rooting for the Saints.

One bit of sad news is putting a damper on our jollity...our Mom's dearest friend passed away from cancer yesterday evening before we got to see her. She had been in pretty good stead until Wednesday and then declined quickly. We had hoped to spend time with her this week, but it will sadly not happen.

The secret to a long marriage is keep your promises, and to stick together through the hard times long enough to remember what brought you together in the first place. The wife is always right, but she knows the husband doesn't always need to know that. lol

jan said...

"The secret to a long marriage is keep your promises, and to stick together through the hard times long enough to remember what brought you together in the first place."

Ivy, very well said! Great advice for any relationship.

jan said...

Ivy, I am so sorry to hear about your mother's best friend, and that you were unable to spend time with her.

Carol said...

Hi Ivy, I see you over there. I'm waving. Do you see me?

Fifth quarter huh? I'm not that sport's savvy so I thought there were only 4. I bet I turned off the game before it was over. Did anything happen after that kid kicked that awesome field goal? Oh, that was during the fifth quarter, wasn't it?

Interesting secrets for a long marriage. I'll try to remember them for my next life.

Sorry for the loss of your friend.

I saw that wedding video Don when it went viral. The Office, that sitcom, even did a take off on it when one of the characters in that show got married. I noticed that many of the guys on that wedding video look like they need to do a little more dancing. I am.

Yep Chloe, we in for some more cold stuff this week. I got so spoiled with our recent warm weather that I was a little too cool today even though it got up to mid 60s. Got to keep remembering it's still January.

jan said...

Don, thank you for the link to the celebrating a wedding. I agree, that is the way to do it. What fun.

jan said...

RETARDED GRANDPARENTS:

After Christmas, a teacher asked her young pupils how they spent their
holiday away from school.

One child wrote the following:

We always used to spend the holidays with Grandma and Grandpa. They used to
live in a big brick house but Grandpa got retarded and they moved to
Arizona. Now they live in a tin box and have rocks painted green to look
like grass. They ride around on their bicycles and wear name tags because
they don't know who they are anymore.

They go to a building called a wreck center, but they must have got it fixed
because it is all okay now, they do exercises there, but they don't do them
very well. There is a swimming pool too, but they all jump up and down in
it with hats on.

At their gate, there is a doll house with a little old man sitting in it.
He watches all day so nobody can escape. Sometimes they sneak out, and go
cruising in their golf carts.

Nobody there cooks, they just eat out.

And, they eat the same thing every night --- early birds.

Some of the people can't get out past the man in the doll house.

The ones who do get out, bring food back to the wrecked center for pot luck.

My Grandma says that Grandpa worked all his life to earn his retardment and
says I should work hard so I can be retarded someday too..

When I earn my retardment, I want to be the man in the doll house.

Then I will let people out, so they can visit their grandchildren.

I have just turned in my letter that I will be retiring effective May 7, 2010 - so I will soon be a "retarded grandparent"

jan said...

The last paragraph in the previous comment is my own, not part of the story.

don1one said...

I've seen it before Carol, but since we're on the subject thought it was appropriate. I think it's a good reminder that we're way too serious most of the time. Like comparing children to adults on percentage of time laughing.

Today turned out to be an absolutely splendid day. It was bright and sunny, I opened the window and just typed away all day.

jan said...

Don, you have the kind of job I want where I can have - "a new room with a southern exposure. Nice soon, cool breeze, and overlooking a pond"

don1one said...

I think you're going to have more fun jan. Congratulations on the retirement.

Sorry about your friend Ivy. I remember going to Castle Rock about 40 years ago. My cousin lived there. Just a little wide spot in the road back then. When do you head north?

Carol said...

Congrats Jan. I can't wait until I can be retarded too.

I came close today with one of my patients. He was a young fellow in for some sex related charges, serious ones. I saw that listed on his allergies was "green pigmented vegetables". I didn't even need to ask since I was 100% sure that was BS. When I asked, letting him know I wasn't buying it, he admitted he was just trying to be funny.

I let the guy know that the medical department was not amused when inmates give false medical information. Then he went off on this thing about mother nature and something about eating vegetables was an insult to her. I asked him what he ate. He said "meat". I said so you think that slaughtering furry cute animals is OK but killing a cucumber violates mother nature? I don't think he had a response to my question and I wasn't in the mood for him to try to come up with one.

I reminded him that he was in jail and was free to either eat or not eat whatever showed up on his tray. If he starts hearing his turnip greens holler, they better not call me.

Chloe said...

Ivy! Glad you were able to slip in a post. So sorry to hear about your mom's friend. Sounds like she was your friend too. I hope everyone is doing OK.

Ivy, loved your relationship advice, and agree too. My hubby and I have been married 36 yrs - even I can't believe it! (I don't think I've ever been 'not' married.

Chloe said...

"Today turned out to be an absolutely splendid day. It was bright and sunny, I opened the window and just typed away all day."

You've got the life of a writer (I know you're designing web sites, but you have the same freedom and creativity)! And you can live anywhere you want. You've got it made Don.
(no wonder you love Florida, with open window weather in January)

Chloe said...

Jan, Loved your grandma and grandpa story.

I was surprised to see you've moved your retirement a little closer. You've got barely over 3 months to go. You're going to be so happy Jan, and free as a bird!

don1one said...

It's back to the real world next week. Going to get the house ready to sell.

I did have one rough patch. One customer interrupted my nap with a system crash. They sent out an email blast without warning me.

Chloe said...

I know everyone's probably already seen most of these pictures, but this one and a few others are just to cute to miss, if you haven't.

Jan, Picture 33 is in your neighboring state of Arizona (which I assume has a very similar client), and is a shot of beautiful rainbow and unbelievably beautiful dark blue sky. (The American flag is a nice touch too. :)

Chloe said...

oops, client=climate

Carol said...

36 years Chloe, I think you can offer your advice for a long successful marriage. What are the most important factors, in your opinion?

Carol said...

Great pic Chloe, those little animals are so cute, even the human ones.

Carol said...

I want one of those Dik Dik's

don1one said...

I was just going to say 36 years sounds amazing. I can't imagine doing anything for that long. :^)

Chloe said...

Ha Carol, I'm not sure if you're looking for a magic ingredient in long relationships, or what, but I sure don't think there are any.

I think it depends on the two people in the relationship, and that every relationship is different. You've been in relationships Carol, you know how much work they are, and what they involve. If things aren't going well for one or the other, then one may decide to leave. I sure don't think that's the fault of the one being left though. If one feels they'd be better off alone than together, then I guess it will fall apart.

It actually ends up being a very long friendship, a comradery. And so, I think if I had to come up with just one important ingredient necessary for a long successful marriage (and we are very happily married), I'd say it's COMMUNICATION ('all' caps!).

What happens is, that after you've been married a looonnnng time, then that expression: 'you complete me' becomes true. Then you're never alone.

Carol said...

Do you think it ever comes down to just being very lucky in making your choice? Most people don't really know their partner until they have spent a certain amount of time with them. Something could show up later. I bet Lacy Peterson thought she made a good choice before she ended up at the bottom of San Francisco Bay.

don1one said...

I've been wondering about boundaries. For those in long term relationships, do you find yourselves setting boundaries?

In other words, my spouse does this better, I do this better, and let the other handle what they do best. Or does everything become a grey area, with no real distinctions in who does what?

Carol said...

Your selection of a partner is pretty much dependent on who you come in contact with and that might not provide much of a selection to choose from.

don1one said...

Carol, I've had a lot of Indian friends that have been very successful in arranged marriages. They're both permanent citizens or green card holders here and don't have to stay in the marriage.

Other than having their horoscopes read, they have no way of knowing if they're compatible as they may have only known each other a couple of days before they get married.

A friend put if very poetically. Anglos fall in love and then get married, Indians get married and then fall in love.

Chloe said...

I think you may be on to something there - a lucky choice may very well be involved.

Hey guys, we all make different choices, and that's what makes it interesting. I sure don't second guess mine, at this point in my life. You know that I always say it's all about trade offs - well, I strongly believe that. Who we are is the sum total of all the choices we've ever made.

Why would we want to change that? I mean, if we change things, it needs to be done in order to get what we want in the future.

If you really want a relationship, then you'll find it (I don't care what age you are). If you don't think putting up with someone else is worth it, then that's a good choice too.

Carol said...

In my family, circle of friends and acquaintances, I haven't found too many partnerships that I envy or would even be able to tolerate. I do think there is a lot of luck involved. Some people are very fortunate to find their soul mate.

Chloe said...

"do you find yourselves setting boundaries?"

You better believe it! That's why I said communication is the most important thing. There are 'no' gray areas. Everything has to be agreed on. And each person needs to stand their ground.

Chloe said...

I do not think you 'find' your soul mate. I think you work on it until you get it right.

don1one said...

I find the very thing that makes women good at relationships makes me better off single. I love to travel, and moving into totally new environments keeps my mind very stimulated.

Chloe said...

"Indians get married and then fall in love."

... that sounds so romantic. And it stops them from making hasty decisions through emotion.

I sure don't like the idea of someone else making my decisions for me though.

Chloe said...

Right Don! You're better off single, if you don't have something important to gain from a relationship. It wouldn't be worth it otherwise.

Carol said...

My older sister is like that Don. She loves going to new places. Once we counted up how many times she has moved. I can't remember what number we came up with but it was amazingly high. I, on the other hand, am uncomfortable with change.

Chloe said...

"I haven't found too many partnerships that I envy or would even be able to tolerate."

Ha! I had to smile, because it all started on that Halloween night Carol (remember the one you told us about?). You don't want to put up with a guy. What's wrong with that?

If you want someone around as you get older, then it'll happen. Stop worrying about too much in the future. We can't control it anyway.

Carol said...

With some of those Indian relationships Don, if the women does get stuck with a real loser and decides to divorce, she can't remarry.

Chloe said...

Me too Carol. We just don't need that stimulation of too much travel. We find joy and comfort right where we are. That's the way I like to live. And it's 'not' boring.

Chloe said...

It's so sad the way women are treated in some cultures.

Carol said...

I don't worry about it Chloe, but I do often ponder it. Why your life might not have turned out as you imagined it as a youngster. I don't have any serious regrets. I never really tried to make things happen, I think I just rolled along in the direction the Universe pushed me in.

Chloe said...

I just noticed that Coreen has an unbelievably beautiful new picture for her avatar.

I love that picture Coreen!

Chloe said...

"I think I just rolled along in the direction the Universe pushed me in."

Are you joking? All that schooling, all the things you made happen. Your camp. You're in complete control Carol. You must that!

don1one said...

I find it very cathartic Carol. You're forced to relearn everything. Otherwise we devolve into living our lives through habits.

The women could remarry in the US. I haven't been to India, so I don't know about over there.

Chloe, the Indians believe that their family are much better at picking a mate for them then they would be themselves. They're more objective about their (usually son or daughter) relative's characteristic, so they can make better matches.

BTW, you'd feel very at home at the motel I'm at Carol. The sheriff constantly seems to be coming by. Certainly not a business crowd here.

Chloe said...

"the Indians believe that their family are much better at picking a mate for them then they would be themselves."

... and they're probably right Don.

But you know how 'independent' the women in our culture are. My way or the highway, and all of that. :)

Carol said...

Coreen's pic reminds me of one of the posts from that Grumpy Gardner Blog Ivy turned us onto. One post is titled "These flowers love the cold". I thought they were so beautiful until I learned they were all plastic flowers. My lazy link: Go down and look for that post with that title.

http://grumpygardener.southernliving.com/grumpy_gardener/

Chloe said...

"Otherwise we devolve into living our lives through habits."

Yeah, but Don.... you were saying the other day you're starting to think about that time in your life when you want to settle down and get comfortable. Isn't that one of the attractions of Florida?

Carol said...

Nope Chloe, I may have had a dream but when it was right, it just popped up. My career was somewhat the same way. I just paid attention to the signs of what to do and when to do it. Actually Jan had a hand in my going to the first grad school and in my teaching at the U.

Chloe said...

Oh yeah Carol, way too perfect. I like to see nature in it's natural state: sorta messy.

Chloe said...

Carol, that's just the way you prefer to look at it. I do the same thing, look for signs - all the time. And then I listen to their warnings, or let them urge me on.

But that's just the way we fit it all into our belief system. Yours is pretty spiritual, so you look at it through that filter.

Ok, this is just the way I think the psyche works. I really like the way you think, 'but' you are in the drivers seat, whether you want to know it or not.

You get complete credit for all your success, in my mind. In my mind, 'you' did it.

Carol said...

I would have never gone into teaching or gone to grad school if it weren't for Jan. I'm kind of glad she moved before she got her PhD. I didn't want one of those because there would be nothing that I would want to do that having one would help. But if she would have been down here when she did it, I probably would have also.

Chloe said...

... we see what we want to see.

No doubt in my mind about that.

Chloe said...

Pumpkin time.

Carol said...

Remember Chloe, I do a lot of pondering and I have pondered all this for many years.

Chloe said...

.. one last thing.

You do have a long relationship. You and Jan.
All those years, and you're still together (with that break in between).

Marriage and relationships and friendships are all the same thing in many ways. Minus certain benefits. :)

Chloe said...

I know you ponder. That's what affirmations are!

We think and think about things, until they manifest. Everything that happens in our life, begins with at thought we had. The better you get at pondering, the faster you can make things happen.

Thoughts are everything. That's why I love communicating here the way we are, without the clutter of physical contact. All this energy is just thoughts.

Chloe said...

LOL Carol. I just went to check our little map before I leave, and those little pictures that go across the screen from our previous posts stopped on that guys butt, from that big butt post I did. It was just so ironic and funny.

See you tomorrow.

Carol said...

Ali Velchi, or however you spell his name, of CNN is trying to tract down, in a 5 foot pile of papers, where the stimulus money went. He's going to try to determine whether any jobs were created. Good luck! He said he found one place where 16 million was spent and no jobs created. That sounds about right. Stop spending my money on shit!

Carol said...

Well, at least CNN is trying. It would have been nice if they would have been doing their homework over the last 10 years and maybe we wouldn't be in such a mess. All MSNBC does is talk gossip and call people names.

Carol said...

Nite, time for bedtime chores.

don1one said...

Only 1/3 of the stimulus has been spent. $500 billion still in the bank.

I can attest lots of road projects have been created, I had to drive through them.

jan said...

"You get complete credit for all your success, in my mind. In my mind, 'you' did it"

Carol, I agree with Chloe. You did it yourself. You have done so much. I am envious with your feelings of contentment in where you live. It sounds like you have good relationships with your sisters. You make good friends where ever you are. That is such a gift.

Chloe, I agree with the thing you said about relationships too. I too don't believe we find our soulmates. We make those too.

jan said...

Chloe, thanks for posting the link to the 50 pictures. My favorite is the one of the mother gorilla looking into the face of her baby. If that isn't true love, I guess I don't know what love is. The one of the rainbow over Arizona is beautiful. Isn't it amazing but those saguero cacti only grow in that area of the U.S. They are just amazing to see. I also liked the pics of the guy on the cycle with his dog - so cute.

jan said...

Chloe, How wonderful that you and your husb have been married 36 years.

jan said...

Ivy, I think Castle Rock is where my son and DIL stop on their way to Wellington, Colo. Is Castle Rock where they have the outlet malls? My DIL loves to shop there.

jan said...

Carol,
"You do have a long relationship. You and Jan.
All those years, and you're still together (with that break in between)."

Chloe is right - you and I have known each other 40 years. Hard to believe, isn't it?

jan said...

It's almost 10:30 here and my pumpkin is falling apart. I lost my glass slipper a long time ago.
Good night.

Ivy Green said...

Jan,
Yes the outlets are right here where we are.
