Granddaughter update

I wish I had more to discuss today. This will be a short post (please hold all applause until after the conclusion of this message).

My granddaughter now has 7 (count 'em!) teeth - four on top and three on the bottom. According to my daughter's phone report today, there is also a 2-year molar waiting in the wings and ready to pop out prematurely. Of course I advised her that I want pictures. A grandma can never have enough pictures, in my opinion.

Bailout Blathering

I have decided (for today at least) not to comment on the bailout, especially on those bailout sums already extended to (and misspent by) the banking industry. I may reconsider if I run out of things to talk about, but this particular topic gets me all hot under the collar (and we're not talking about hot flashes here!). My disgust for the avarice shown by some of those recipients borders on making slanderous comments alleging misappropriation of funds, greed, and thievery, and once I get started I am inclined to suggest all manner of medieval torture methods to first divest them of those ill-gotten gains and then divest them of various bodily parts. Tis best that I keep quiet for now, methinks.
