Fruit of the Loom alert

I have a missing sock; it has been traveling in my car for the past 3 weeks. I know that it is scared and cold; it misses the nasty feet that it protected for its entire life. Would the owner please call 1-803-555-7781 to find out how we can return this missing sock. It has gone almost three weeks with out the funk of its owner’s feet.

I know you can’t have more the two pairs of socks, if you would like a single sock you left in my car three weeks ago after golf please call and I will send it with someone on there way to Charleston.

Stay tuned for the story of the other sock, which is some where in west Columbia near Murray’s family bar.


Hey it may just be the NIT to some but nonetheless it is a postseason tourney that USC has won again this year. First team to repeat as champions of the NIT since the 1940's. Congrats to the team, coach and fans. My hope now is that we can build on this victory and win some conference games next year and go to the NCAA tourney. What ever the game plan was the last 10 games needs to be the game plan next year. Add some good recruits to the mix, hopefully a big body to fill the middle and let's not only compete in the SEC (we have now for a while) but start winning in the SEC (have not finished better than 8-8 in SEC play since Odom has been there)!!! On a side note, did anyone notice that USC only had 2 cheerleaders at the NIT finals and no band??

helping people out

So I am talking to this chick at work and she is talking about how hard it has been since she got her new puppy, how she hasn’t been sleeping and the dog whines all the time. She was asking me about how to crate train the dog. So I look at her and say “Puppies are a pretty big responsibility; you might want to stick with just having babies,” since she is like 18 months pregnant or something like that.

Terrorist in Connecticut...

Well this is crazy...seems a cat named 'Lewis' has been labled a terrorist by residents of Sunset Circle in Fairfield, Conn. The Cat,Lewis, a 5-year-old, black-and-white longhaired cat, attacked at least a half-dozen people on the cul-de-sac and even took on the local Avon lady, neighbors say. The Animal Control Officer was called in and "was so concerned about Lewis' attacks in the neighborhood of neatly kept homes off High Street that she placed a restraining order on him. It was the first time such an action was taken against a cat in Fairfield and possibly in the state. In effect, Lewis is under house arrest, forbidden to leave his home. (House Arrest????)

They arrested the cat's owner, Ruth Cisero, of High Street, first for failing to comply with the restraining order and then for reckless endangerment. At first, the restraining order allowed the cat limited freedom if Cisero gave him Prozac. But the cat refused to take the drug and it got out of the house and attacked another neighbor.

This is a great read and hope you will read more about this be on the watch out!

Lt. Gov Bauer on

It seems that Bauer can not keep his nose out of the media recently. First we learn that he has a thing for driving fast and now the media is getting wind of his site. I mean this guy is running for re-election, you would think his campaign team would advise him not to do things like this because he has some stiff competition this year with Jordan, Barber and Campbell. But Bauer must think different and he must think 'bad publicity is good publicity.'

I ran across this from another site and decided that it was something that this readership should look at. It seems our Lt. Gov is a myspace member and seems pretty active on the site with a great fan base (notice all the young ladies as fans). I am glad that the state's second in command is using his time wisely. I hope he is time 'on the clock' when updating his profile or on the site..... I found it interesting and you guys check it out and let us know what you think...

Lt. Gov. Bauer will now be known as 'speed demon'...

Seems are Lt. Gov has a heavy foot...I mean 101 mph while using a police radio to communicate to the cop chasing you.....that takes some serious skills (and balls!).

I saw this article today at YGA Today (part of The State Paper) is the text:

Lt. Gov. Andre Bauer was pulled over - but not ticketed - by S.C. Highway Patrol doing 101 mph on the night of Feb. 25, after using the police radio in his state vehicle to try and communicate with the trooper pursuing him, according to documents obtained by The State this morning.
The failure of the trooper to give Bauer a ticket for speeding prompted Jim Schweitzer, director of the Department of Public Safety, to issue a memo last week to all officers that the "driver's status as a public official or prominent individual ... should never dictate the enforcement action taken."

Efforts to reach Bauer early Tuesday afternoon were unsuccessful. He was presiding over the Senate's session. When asked last week by The State if he had been pulled over by highway patrol in Chester County in the past several weeks, Bauer said, "Nope. I don't know why it's going around."

Bauer also was stopped, but not given a ticket, by Highway Patrol on Dec. 26 in Laurens County. According to the video of the stop obtained by The State, Bauer was told he was driving 77-78 mph. In that instance, he was driving a silver 2006 BMW, and told the trooper, when asked for his license and registration, that he might have a gun in the glove box.

A 'Gamecock' loses his job...

A fellow Gamecock lost his job today, by choice though. I hate to see him go but with Bush's poll numbers dipping below 40% and the media eating away at Iraq coverage, immigration and other 'hot topics' was just a matter of time before someone in the aministration was replaced. Seems that Josh Bolten will get the nod to be the new Chief of Staff. Card was there for close to 5 years which is unusal for a Chief of Staff, the longest serving Chief of Staff was President Harry Truman's (served six years).

Testing in Golf....

I recently read this article discussing the issue if the PGA Golf Assoc. should 'test' for steroids in the wake of different sports scandels involving particpants cheating to advance themselves (i.e Bonds???). I think it is time for the PGA to look into something like this. Not saying that any player is cheating but you have to have something in place to discourage 'potential' abuses before they happen.

You guys read the article and you guys respond....
