    It's the TV Year in Review.

    We've got the scoop on fashion via the "Victoria's Secret" fashion show; that awful McDonald's sex scam via "20/20", plus "American Idol" and "Dancing With the Stars" 2006. Much more.

    Also, a recap on cooking in 2006 which includes, we're not making this up, meatloaf with peaches and butterfinger cookies.

    Don't forget my fine Katrina compilation that I've been updating since the storm ended.

    Also, a link to my Harmony database translations in both SUBJECT and DATE order.

    All together with pics and links to your subjects of interest as we review the year 2006.

    It's time to review True Crime for the year 2006.

    If it was a stupid criminal, a bizarre crime and, of course, the major True Crimes, it's covered on this Blog post.

    We have, of course, plenty of links to posts on that Duke rape as I've dutifully documented all the events since it happened.

    Then there's the horrific Colorado and Amish school shootings. And please don't forget pervert Mark Karr or the idiot who delivered him to us, John Ramsey.

    And Neil Entwistle killed his wife and baby then fled to England. His trial will be coming up soon and we've got it all covered.


  • Wednesday 12/27/06

    We're going to review the year 2006 in Political Tidbits and we've covered most everything.

    We begin with the new Jesus Christ, Superstar-Barack Obama. Let us not forget poor Mark Foley who got run out of town and office when he committed no crime.

    Remember those fake Mideast pics? Oh, and Tookie Williams...he's dead now.

    Also, it was covered on this Blog back when it happened but the trial is coming up soon. I speak of the travesty of Haditha.

    All this and more in this Blog post which covers the entire year in politics.

    The year 2006 in review for a lot of subjects in this Blog Post.

    First, plenty of Book Reviews, including "Heart Full of Lies", "Bitter Harvest", "Every Breath You Take" by Ann Rule.

    A Guest Writer compilation included as well and we have microwaved teddy bears, dogs lost and Honda Hybrids.

    Of course the Blog's namesake, Kaitlyn Mae, got a year older this past year and we've got documentation of her hilarious career choice now that she's all of three years old, her Halloween kitty costume and her first overnight visit to Mom Mom.

    Finally, some Delaware posts including a review of a local theater's presentation of "It's a Wonderful Life" and a restaurant review for "Jake's Seafood".

    Much more.

    Let's review the year 2006 in the Pop Culture arena.

    Princess Diana died in a car accident, or so the five millionth investigation into her death reports. Also, crocodile star Steve Irwin killed, Brad and Angelina have a baby, Britney wears no underwear and is short on her motherhood skills.

    Lots of weird and unusual, blind items-ASKED and GUESSED-all embellished by my fine, somewhat sarcastic, commentary.

    Quote(s) of the Week
    Classic Quotes by Andrew Carnegie (1835-1919) U.S. industrialist and philanthropist

    "And while the law of competition may be sometimes hard for the individual, it is best for the race, because it ensures the survival of the fittest in every department."

    "As I grow older, I pay less attention to what men say. I just watch what they do."

    "Concentrate your energies, your thoughts and your capital. The wise man puts all his eggs in one basket and watches the basket."

    "Concentration is my motto - first honesty, then industry, then concentration."

  • Monday 12/18/06

    Been catching up on some old and not so old movies during this Christmas TV nothing season.

    This week, a review of "Cheaper by the Dozen -2".

    As a child I loved the book. I'm not at all sure Steve Martin captures the spirit of the book's character.

    And a short touch on a movie about those Australian parents whose baby was killed by a dingo. The movie did not deal at all do that possible True Crime in terms of parents as perpetrators rather than a dingo.

  • Tuesday 12/19/06

    It's time for some True Crime. An acting Baldwin is arrested and it's not the first time.

    Hey folks, isn't it time someone put that Duke rape prosecution to rest? I've some ideas on why no one's doing anything to stop this travesty of justice.

    Dr. Death, AKA Dr. Kevorkian, soon to be out on parole, soon to kill again. Dear Dr. Kevorkian isn't as noble as many think he is.

    Either a pet ferret or a puppy chewed off an infant's toes and no one knows what to charge the neglectful parents with or even which animal did the deed.

    Finally, she tried to save her husband's most private part AFTER he was dead. Did you know this was against the law?

    TRUE CRIME UPDATE 12/19/06

  • Wednesday 12/20/06

    Time for some Political Tidbits and we can't resist the Barack Obama story about those big ears. He doesn't want the press talking about his big ears. Which means it will be all I must talk about up until he is elected President.

    Got some scams involving politicians, now a NY Senator who stole charity money can you believe? And famous skid row has a neat little food stamps scam going on, God Bless Us Taxpayers who pay for this.

    An update on Tim Johnson and his stroke implications and a political cartoon bound to make you smile.

    Bah, humbug.

    It's Pop Culture Update time and folks, Princess Di…the driver was drunk, the tunnel was dangerous, they had on no seatbelts and were going on almost 100 mph.

    Time to put on our common sense hats and look into what might be behind this constant attempt to blame the wayward princesses' death on conspiracies.

    Jennifer Aniston caught topless again, Sharon Stone causes an international incident and yes, the guy really got drunk and fell asleep on the railroad tracks.

    Gotta DVR folks and plan reviewing some really old movies.

    This week we've got a newer offering in the form of that infamous prime time girly show known as the "Victoria's Secret Fashion Show".

    Indeed these scantily clad models parade the runway. The lingerie features every sort of fantasy known...well man. Er, make that "male".

    It's a bit of a hoot but we're not fooled. We know risque when we see it, even during prime time.

    And a review of the "40 Year Old Virgin", a movie almost not as ridiculous as its title might sound.

    It had its moments.

  • Tuesday 12/12/06

    Time for some True Crime and there's some true crime percolating under the radar which we must visit.

    First, what's behind that shooting of the NY Bridegroom? There's way more to this story than being reported. And some notes on the politicos getting involved in this sticky matter.

    And how about that mall terrorist no one in the Lamestream media is talking about? Yes, in fact he IS a Muslim.

    This week, we've got a STUPID VICTIM, yes we do.

    How about those parents who kidnapped their own daughter to prevent her wedding?

    A hero mayor, a criminal steals to impress her boyfriend, and hey, the Judge let him go and surprise, surprise...he killed again.

    Good comment on that Las Vegas Controller murder.

  • Wednesday 12/13/06

    Some Political Tidbits and this week, what with the politicos busy awarding committee memberships to their friends, we've got a few lighthearted notes on the political scene.

    Which is not to discount my very serious discussion of superstar Barak Obama and the one thing that will surely shoot him dead as to his political future.

    Updates on the Iraq Surrender Group, and Ted Kennedy's bash for Hillary and Obama. Heh.

    And the four ladies in red who shook D.C. gossip mavens to their core.

    Political Tidbits 12/13/06

  • Thursday 12/14/06

    Guest Writer Michelle buys some new clothes without once consulting me re her fashion choices.

    No offense as to the illustration, Michelle. Just couldn't resist.

    And a Delaware post with a review of a local theater group's musical rendition of "It's a Wonderful Life", yes indeed, it's not a live musical.

  • Friday 12/15/06

    Catching up on some holiday Pop Culture, we, of course, must discuss Gwynith Paltrow's attempts to bring snobbery to new heights.

    A couple of surprises. One, a group nominated for a grammy surprises and next, why on earth was opera star Placido Domingo booed recently?

    We've got a pic montage of very ordinary women transformed through the power of combs and makeup, to superstars.

    Finally, heh, a new form of jellyfish discovered on the planet and you've just got to see what this creature looks like. It's real, I swear, but it resembles something very manlike.

    Here's some TV tidbits.

    This past Friday I watched a "20/20" episode I can't get out of my mind.

    A young, vulnerable teen is forced to strip for an alleged search then for three hours is continually humiliated and forced to do unspeakable things.

    This while her horrible boss at McDonald's allows it to go on although the teen begs her for mercy.

    It really happened. And a whole bunch of people were so despicable, stupid and immoral that it boggles the mind.

    And the real perpetrator walked off completely free.

  • Tuesday 12/5/06

    Time for some True Crime and this week a couple gets brought up on terrorism charges for, ahem, making whoopie in an airplane.

    Also, update on missing Trenton Duckett and that murdered NY Actress brings illegal immigration problem to public spotlight.

    We've got a really, really stupid criminal and a shocker, just a shocker that will boggle your mind.

    For a woman really did, yes she did, she microwaved her baby.

  • Wednesday 12/6/06

    Some Political Tidbits and let's talk about that so-called "Iraq Study Group". Is it a political ploy or for real?

    While on the subject, let's check in on what the Iraqs think. Oh, and the Iranian President writes Americans a personal letter, snort.

    Mental patient threatens to castrate President Bush and what's John McCain doing at a Governor's conference?>

    More on those airplane Imams and hey, exactly how many protesters were there in Beirut?

    Finally, mine own fine rant on Walmart and the nuts who hate this very sucessful business. From a dedicated Walmart shopper, who would be me.

    Kaitlyn pays Mom-Mom a three day visit and hey, Mom-Mom is very tired.

    But we baked cookies, took an amazing boat ride, and attended a Christmas celebration in Delaware's city of Seaford.

    And goodness, you'll never guess what the child wants to be when she grows up!

  • Friday 12/8/06

    Time for a bit of Pop Culture.

    Danny DeVito…we have the video and I'll never quite forget the pride he showed at admitting that he and his wife wrecked the Lincoln Bedroom. During the Clinton reign this happened, of course.

    We've got some blind items, a heroic rescue of a homeless man from the jaws of an alligator, and goodness, what's going to happen to the Wiggles now?

    Finally, yes I do have a scathing opinion of Britney Spears and her crotch shots for attention.
