I thought that today we would start with some well-armed women … Any complaints ? … I didn’t think so …
What’s better than a Pistol-Packin’ Mama ?
Not much … except perhaps a Full-Auto Female …
But nothing compares with Women Warriors …
And for our finale … how about a Sexy Sniper …

” A Baytown, Texas, teen recently saw a police car parked in a fire lane near her apartment complex and wrote the officer a ticket.
” He was parked on the side of the building. It said it was a fire lane all the way around,” 14 year-old Annie Jones told KPRC-TV.
Officer Tommy King found the ticket on his windshield and started laughing.
Jones’ ticket asked King to pay $10 to the apartment manager. He was so impressed that Jones didn’t ask for the money to be paid to herself, that the officer paid the manager and gave Jones a $40 gift certificate to Toys ‘R Us.
” I have a new friend. I think the lesson is not to be afraid of law enforcement, we’re here to help,” King told KPRC-TV.”
Thanks to CNS News for reminding us of how cops used to behave back when they served the public and not the State .

” A New Hampshire store owner is starting to believe in the supernatural after she had a ghostly encounter in her store that was all caught on tape!
The surveillance video from the Ellacoya Country Store in Gilford NH shows a glass tray thrown from the table after the employees leave the store.
After the tray crashed, a store employee, Heidi Boyde, runs back into the room to investigate and found the glass shattered all over the floor.”

” There were more mad scientists than normal at COSI Columbus Saturday morning.
Eight high schools – including six from Ohio – sent their Rube Goldberg teams to complete a simple task: Zip a zipper. But in Rube Goldberg fashion, their goal was to include as many extra steps as possible to make the zipper move.
“A Rube Goldberg machine is a series of different machines doing a very simple job but in a very complex way,” said Reno Sith, one of the West High School competitors. Goldberg was an early 20th century cartoonist known for drawing elaborate, complicated machines that resulted in everyday tasks being finished in a comical way.
The regional competition was won by Columbia Central High School in Brooklyn, Michigan. Columbus’ Centennial High School placed second. Other area high schools included Metro, Beechcroft, Reynoldsburg’s eStem Academy, and West. “
Continued … LOL … The Rube Goldberg way of taking a simple task and making as difficult as possible reminds us present day government … think about it . The difference being that Rube Goldberg inspired creations are funny were disfunctional government is not .

” The Lockheed SR-71 “Blackbird” is the fastest jet ever built, a machine so far ahead of its time even its own pilots thought it looked more like a spaceship than an airplane. It is an engineering marvel, powered by innovative engines that operated most efficiently at Mach 3.2, its typical cruising speed. From 1966 to 1998, it operated in secrecy, flown only by a handful of the Air Force’s most elite pilots. Rick McCrary was one of them.
SH: How did you end up flying that thing?
RM: Well, I’d be lying if I said there wasn’t a lot of luck involved. I entered the Air Force in 1970, and was accepted for pilot training. After I completed that, I was a pilot instructor for about five years in the T-38, the supersonic trainer the Air Force still uses to this day. Subsequent to that I flew the F/B-11, the Aardvark, up at Pease AFB, New Hampshire. Then I was actually on nuke alert up there when I got a phone call from a fella I flew T-38s with who asked if I was interested in “a new position.” I was due to rotate, so I said sure.
I was anticipating a desk job, which is just part of the rotation cycle as an Air Force officer. I can’t say I was looking forward to it. He said that he’d been out with the SR-71 program, and that they were looking for a pilot. Of course, that was an easy answer. They said, “Well, why don’t you come out and have a look,” so when I got off alert that tour I flew out to Sacramento and drove up to Beale AFB to meet everyone.”

Send A Message To Clayton
Yesterday we posted about a young Texas man , Clayton Allen, Jr , who was photographed outside of Jodie Smith middle school paying his respects to the flag as the Pledge ceremony went on inside the school . It was a heartwarming story and it led a reader to email us with contact information for the school where Mr Allen works , so if you would like to show your appreciation or make a comment to the school and/or Mr Allen you may do so here : Cypress-Fairbanks I.S.D.
” A master chef can think about a combination of two, maybe three ingredients at a time. Watson, the same IBM supercomputer that won Jeopardy in 2011, can crunch through a quintillion. That’s a one and 18 zeroes, as the IBM researchers like to say. But does that make their computer a good cook?”
” For about two years, IBM’s cognitive computing group has been working to apply Watson’s vast processing ability to food. The system analyzed about 35,000 existing recipes and about 1,000 chemical flavor compounds, which allows it to make educated guesses about which ingredient combinations will delight and, just as importantly, surprise. From there, it tries to encourage unconventional combinations — like chocolate, coffee, and garlic — in order to produce dishes that have never been made before.
” Creativity is the crowning achievement of human intelligence,” says Steven Abrams, director of the Watson group. “Can we make a computer be creative?”
