Pebble Mine (4/22/09) Obama Administration: Tick Tok, Tick Tok…………

Ken Salazar….que tal? Carol Browner….well?  Pebble Mine? So much fervor while Bush was in office. Where is the fervor now? Salazar held hearings in Alaska on April 14th re off shore leases, etc. One Google post by Alaska PRN about off shore leases signed in by the evil one in his last days….no mention of Pebble Mine in the post. Did it come up in the Salazar hearing? I wonder if anyone has access to recent intell on efforts by the Obama Administration to review Pebble Mine or recent Administration comments upon this mega project? Salazar took the time to travel to Alaska, so he must be briefed up on this issue.

Northerner’s & Southerner’s (Differences & Definitions)

Ok, this is one of those annoying deals you get from a consistently attentive friend that sends you emails with all manner of dogs, cats, flags, touchy feely stuff and wants you to pass it on to 6 friends thereby spreading the love and peace via visuals…you know those types right? Well, I got this one and there were no visuals, just text and it was a bit humorous. Because my dad was a bonifided hillbilly from up the holler near Panther, West Virginia, I thought I would pass along this piece, but I won’t send you any picutes of dogs kissing baby fawns or three  yellow lab puppies snoozing. I promise.

AND FOR NORTHERNERS MOVING SOUTH . . .In the South:  If you run your car into a ditch, don’t panic.  Four men in a four-wheel drive pickup
 truck with a tow chain will be along shortly. Don’t try to help them, just stay out of their way. This is what they live for.

Don’t be surprised to find movie rentals and bait in the same store…do not buy food at this store. Remember, “y’all” is singular, “all y’all” is plural, and “all y’all’s”  is plural possessive. Get used to hearing “You ain’t from ’round here, are ya?”
 

 Don’t be worried at not understanding what people are saying.  They can’t understand you either. The first Southern statement to creep into a transplanted Northerner’s vocabulary is the adjective “big ‘ol” truck or “big ‘ol” boy. Most Northerners begin their Southern-influence dialect this way.  But all of them are in denial about it.  The proper pronunciation you learned in school is no longer proper.

Be advised that “He needed killin'” is a valid defense here. If  you hear a Southerner exclaim, “Hey, y’all, watch this,” you should stay out of the way. These are likely to be the last words he’ll ever say.

 If there is the prediction of the slightest chance of eve the smallest accumulation of snow, your presence is required at the local grocery store.  It doesn’t matter whether you need anything or not.  You just have to go there.

 In the South, we have found that the best way to grow a lush green lawn is to pour gravel on it and call it driveway.
