Oddest Couple

Dick Cheney and Shirley Schmidt dancing on the balcony. Denny Crane, whose gun goes off prematurely, as Cheney in hunting clothes. Allan Shore in drag as the hot Ms. Schmidt. That's funny. That's Boston Legal.

Religious satire

I pretty much confine my religious rants and raves to one of the other Canary Feathers blogs at If you think religion is a fit subject for satire, there's a great magazine, The Wittenburg Door. Check it out. It's a holy hoot.


I just noticed that the kitty litter bag carries a Toxoplasmosis warning. That's a very serious disease that can cause blindness. If you are pregnant or there is anything wrong with your immune system, stay way from the litter box. Have someone else change it for you. And of course, wash hands thoroughly if you have cats. My daughter had it when she was quite young. We were very frightened. It was treated in time with strong drugs and she is OK.

Favorite Cats

My very favorite cats are those that swallow canaries and grin broadly, licking their whiskers as they burp canary feathers.

Great Blogs

There is, in my never to be humble opinion, but a tiny handful of blogs that justify the existence of the blogosphere. The rest of them, including my three, just take up space.

CSI: Miami Babes

EMILY PROCTER, the blonde, has a high voice I can't handle. Sounds like a 10 year old kid. KHANDI ALEXANDER, who is not blonde, can purr in my ear any time. Looks as good as she sounds, too. Is that her real name? Should be if it isn't. She is candy for my eyes and ears.

Matchmaker, make me a match

Do couples that found each other through a high-compatibility matchmaking service stay together longer than those that just stumble into each other? Are there any studies? Seems to me that people and their needs change so much over the years that long haul success is just a crap shoot.

I Love Cats

I don't mean like. I mean love. I love cats. Cats are more fun than anything. Cats are a lot more fun than people. There is something seriously wrong with people who don't like cats.

Ben Stein

I like Ben Stein because he's low key. He may be the only media star who doesn't get all hyper and shouty. My last years in radio were most unhappy because there's none of the rock jock in me. I couldn't talk loud and fast enough to make it in the profession I loved. Very depressing.

Miss Peggy Lee

I've been thinking about Peggy and her songs. No other singer can get right in my ear and let me know she's singing just to me. And that haunting "Is that all there is" packs a pwerful emotional punch. She kept on turning out hits from her big band days with Benny Goodman right up to the time of her death. One fine lady.

Nurse Ratched's Place" ( gets my vote for the very best of the blogosphere. It's personal, it's funny, it's caring, it's literate. It's all that without being preachy, pedantic and self-important. Great writing and wonderful pictures. Oughta be more nurses like her. And more blogs like that one, too.

Thank you Graham!!

I must publicly thank Graham, who works for the blogspot support team, for his patient and lengthy correspondence that finally got this blog up and running again after I messed it up with countless changes of username and passwords. You're a good man, Graham!
