Bill Clinton Turns 64 With Big Hamptons Bash, Paul McCartney Serenade
Bristol Palin, the unmarried teenage mother of Sarah Palin's first grandchild, is being paid $14,000 to speak at a benefit for a Christian home for unwed mothers in Louisville, Kentucky.
A video has surfaced showing Sarah and Todd Palin reacting with apparent frustration to a man filming them at Alaska's Valdez airport, with the Palins asking the man to identify himself and taking video and photos of him as he films them
Bill Clinton was the most investigated president in US history and all the Republicans could find was a blue dress, which in their minds was enough to impeach him. And all the while he was being investigated he led this country through eight years of relative peace and prosperity, including job creation and higher incomes.
Happy Birthday Bill and thank you.

Racism Keeps Rearing Its Ugly Head

A group of conservative activists slammed the Obama administration Monday for allegedly planning to use its administrative authority to undercut immigration restrictions in the wake of congressional inaction on a comprehensive reform bill.

Hi Lisa, I hope you are doing well. I read in the Tico Times about a horrible bus accident there and how you ride the buses and immediately thought of you. Be safe. Can't you drive yourself?
We need you.
Thank you Jamie.
A chicken was trying to cross the road in front of my bus yesterday and ended up splattered on the drivers side windshield. I was sitting directly behind the driver. Yikes! Lots of hooting after that happened followed by a variety of pollo frito jokes throughout the bus.
Last week there was a bad accident where a mother was pushing her child in a stroller on the sidewalk and they were run over by a bus and killed. The bus then plunged down an embankment and into a stream. Everyone made it off the bus safely.
I don't have much choice in riding the bus. In fact, it is a great way to travel.
And the four hour bus ride is very scenic. Actually, the bus drivers are quite good as evidenced in the above photo.
I sold my broken car to finance my stay in San Jose for my 6 week radiation treatment. I really didn't want to drive myself to San Jose, anyway.
Today, I am in San Jose to get a post radiation cat scan. I couldn't post an edition yesterday because my ride to San Jose fell through and I had to make last minute plans to ride the bus.

To Help You Deflate Photo
In this Sept. 2008 photo provided by SICS (Scuola Italiana Cani Salvataggio-Italian School of Canine Lifeguards), Mas the dog, jumps from a helicopter ahead of his lifeguard and school founder Ferruccio Pilenga, during a patent test at Lago D'Iseo lake Italy. Hundreds of specially trained dogs form Italy's corps of canine lifeguards, deployed each summer to help swimmers who get into trouble in the nation's popular seas. Unlike their human counterparts, these lifedogs can easily jump from helicopters and speeding boats to reach swimmers in need of a rescue. With millions flocking to Italy's crowded beaches each summer, the Italian Coast Guard says it rescues about 3,000 people every year — and their canine helpers are credited with saving several lives.
