snow, no wait rain, no wait - more snow!!

Well as we get more awesome weather here in New England I just wanted to post about it. We have had a lot of snow! I can tell you that my dog really appreciates it. Generally I am a real fan of winter and I am enjoying it, on some level. But, DANG! More Snow!!!! Really!!!! Oh well, I guess it could always be worse, we could be living in Hawaii......

I present "the audition"

I really miss Mr. Show.  For those of you not hip to it, it was a comedy series that ran on HBO in the mid/late 90's.  It stared Bob Odenkirk and David Cross.  It had many young talented comedians like Sarah Silverman, Brian Posehn and Jack Black. Anyway, great funny stuff. So here is just a little ode to Mr. Show.....

Ode to the greatest picture on the internet

I believe that the title of this post says it all.  I mean really, what more can you say about this picture besides....greatest picture ever!

Guitar kid

The formula for Internet picture greatness is totally proven here:

  1. Lots of Booze
  2. Young and old in the picture
  3. Guy in background dropping trow (????)
  4. Shirtless chubby kid with bowl cut
  5. Shirtless chubby kid with bowl cut rocking out like there is no tomorrow

And that's about it (1+2+3+4+5= greatness)

Here! Here!

Congrats to us for electing our new President. We did some good with this guy. In tribute to someone who could potentially become my new favorite President I wanted to post this about my current favorite - our 7th President, Andrew Jackson.

During his term he fought against the National Bank, wanted to abolish the Electoral College, he admitted Michigan into the union, was the first President to have bodily harm done and be shot at, was a POW and he fought in 13 duels and killed a guy.

That's the whole package baby.  His nickname was "Old Hickory" because of his toughness. 

All that is going to be tough for Barack to top.  I thought his speech today was inspiring.  He could be great, if he can do the things he talks about - he could go down in history as one of the greatest Presidents in American history.  He could be right next to Andrew Jackson. 

Congratulations to President Obama and congratulations to us for electing a great new voice and a promising leader.

Love to Hate

I know that if you haven't heard of her you have probably heard her. Ann Coulter. Wow, I am going to editorialize here but she is Looney-tunes. That is one great reason why this clip rules, she tries so hard to be controversial and "cutting" and she justs ends up getting , well.......cut down. Go Al! Al for president in 2016.

Family Christmas Card

I know this is a little late in the season but it is something that we had really hoped to do and the time just slipped away. On the Christmas Eve service that we went to the pastor discussed Christmas cards and the habit of putting pictures of families on them and not the Christmas message. He concluded that he thought that it did not take away from the Christmas message and story but only helped bring the family's love and cheer to one and all.

That being said (unannounced to Sara - sorry babe), here is the 2008 Elliott Family Christmas card. Please enjoy!

Take that, and that!!!

Ok, I don't really know how to prepare you for what you are about to see. Gentleman, you may want to ask the women and children to leave the room and cover their eyes and ears. OR you may want them all to come running in as fast as possible and take a good look at this......

Go to box, feel shame!!! Shame FOR-EVER.

Happy New Year

Happy 2009 to all!

Here is to a great new year. I am eager and ready to welcome a new year of fun, changes and good times. We just got back from a quick trip to NYC. We were there on the 29th and 30th and it was more than crazy busy for me. I can not imagine being stuck there for New Years Eve. Sara also posted about this here.

Anyway, we went to a neighbor's place last night for a little shindig and had a good time with some of our "heights" com padres. We are getting so old - we were home by 11:30 and had to talk each other into staying up at least till midnight to celebrate. We made some quick calls to our families and hit the sack. Party on.

I also want to take the chance to remind folks that I make money from the ads on my blog here.
