So, Andy Pettitte takes it like a man and Miguel Tejada decides "No puedo hablar de los esteroides" - telling reporters his lawyers have told him not to speak on the subject...guess which one will have an easier time with the fans this coming season?

Long night ahead of us...probably will be sleeping on the couch here at the plant as we have had some mechanical difficulties have slowed us down, but once we get up and running we have calculated that we should be able to do the 13 different approvals by about 2:00 am on Thursday morning and then I will sleep for two hours and head for the airport.

BUT..then I am off for two days - plus the weekend - and accompanying darlin' Nancy to Philadelphia, MS for a trade show....

Already made Friday evening dinner reservations for a real nice place...

Well, Travis will probably be posting this, but we thought the list of stars announced for the new season of "Dancing With The Stars" was pretty interesting.

Do they feel the need to have one star with a physical ailment each season? Last season, they had on the ex-Mrs. McCartney, Heather Mills, who has on e prosthetic leg. This year, they are having Marlee Matlin, who is legally deaf.

Along with Ms. Matlin, the competitors will be:
Priscilla Presley
Adam Carolla - former "Loveline" and "Man Show" host
Cristián de la Fuente - Former "CSI: Miami" lab tech
Shannon Elizabeth - who played the exchange student in "American Pie"
Steve Guttenberg
Mario - R&B singer ("Just a Friend")
Penn Jillette
Monica Seles
Jason Taylor - Miami Dolphins defensive end
Marissa Jaret Winokur - Tony winner for "Hairspray"
Kristi Yamaguchi - Olympic figure-skating champ

Well, we had a down printing press, so we got to appear on The Radio Happy Hour..If you missed it, check out the archives... ya know how weird Scientologists are? Well we were bombarded with calls from Anti-Scientologists, one of whom claims that the Scientologists had offices in 7 WTC and that they blew up that building because the 'elders' are experienced in metallography and the destruction of metal...or some such crap...they came out of the woodwork and even though we stated we thought the 'religion' was unbelievable...because we did not jump onto their bandwagon they got all weird and nasty and ...well weird...

Made for a great freakin show... Evander had to cancel, but will be on next week...

OH and don't forget to go over and wish

OK, we will give this a rock...found it over at Travis'

25 Of Your Sparks

  1. Weirdos will find you regardless of where you are. All they seek is a public forum.

    As for the drink recipe, I'd say either one fits you fairly well! I thought mine was pretty amusing.

    I'm going with the second, because ELEGANCE? Seriously? hee.

    I'm tired just reading your post of late nights, early you get naps?

    I LOVE Penn...this should be an interesting season!

  9. Good luck with your marathon printing session and your approvals.

    I have never been a fan of the Yankees, but I have a newfound respect for Andy Pettite. Roger Clemens? Miguel Tejada? Nope. Not a chance.

  10. Angell Says:
  11. Both those recipes fit you well my friend. :D

    I'm not impressed with this season's line up. I think Priscilla will do very well (wanna bet she dances to an Elvis tune?). I can't STAND Adam Corolla. I hope he's the first to go.


  12. Meribah Says:
  13. Awwww, thanks, Vinny! You're tops! **Dives into the cake, snout first** :P

  14. Julianne Hough is being paired with Adam Corrolla....LOL. I can't wait!

  15. katherine. Says:
  16. good luck with the gig....Philly will be great fun!

    dancing with the stars line up should make for an interesting show....although an olympic figure skater learns a great deal of dance....

    Finish off with a squeeze of lime juice

    This suits me... :) That was fun!

    Hope you are havin' a good day, Vinny!

  19. DrillerAA Says:
  20. It does appear that DWTS is exploring Dancing With A Disabilty. They also seem to be determined to have a female winner this year. There are two figure skaters in the mix and they will have a definite advantage. They also got three male guests 5'-4" pros. In dancing, size does matter, and if one partner is considerably taller than the other...not good.

  21. Unknown Says:
  22. All you need is love...and a psycho on your show. I'm going to listen now!

  23. Dude, it is ALL about the chug =)

  24. TUG: But I do like the panache part in the first one...and the splash of warmth

    RWA: TY Sir...He did himself proud, Mr. Pettitte did...

    ANGELL: I like Penn...but he is so danged tall...

    MERI: Enjoy the cake it is ALL for you

    KYRA: He is a clod...

    KATHERINE: Not sure which other you are not commenting on ...heheheh Kristi has a huge advantage me thinks

    KB: Moxie...yup...Impish...yup...Love...yup Imagination...yup


    DRILLERAA: I think you are right about the wanting a woman to win thing

    DANA: LOL...There were multiple psychos last night


  25. Maggie Moo Says:
  26. I think that Kristi will have a good shot-she's already kind of a dancer, just on the ice.

    And also-Adam Corola is going to be hysterical!

  27. Tug Says:
  28., my friend, are too kind. ;-)

  29. Travis Cody Says:
  30. The bigger guys could certainly be at a disadvantage. We have seen taller pro men with smaller celebrity partners...Jonathan with Heather Mills comes to mind. The key will be grace and elegance...if they are clunky then they might be able to learn to make it work.

    As for the disability thing, Ms Mills was much better than some of the clutzes that have been on the show in past seasons despite only having one leg. It'll be interesting to see how Ms Matlin does with rhythms.

    YAY for the new computer!

  31. PYB Design Says:
  32. Let me order a "Vinny" first and a "Bond" thereafter *hiccccc*

    I know you´re busy... but please do me the favour and play with me:

    Tag! You´re it!

  33. AtriaBooks Says:
  34. They got me rooting for the Scientologists!

  35. MAGS: It will be interesting

    TUG: No really..honest..the definition of panache is you dear

    TRAVIS: You know better than I my friend...I am an amateur compared to you on this

    PVB: I am going into the dungeon on this one dear

    DOC: Well..not really...but almost

  36. TopChamp Says:
