Have You Seen This Redhead?
The lovely young lady to your left is Kassidee Kennedy. She is a missionary doing noble work among the lowly heathens in the Czech Republic. She was last heard from by our Publisher when she talked about going to Berlin Germany for Thanksgiving break. She has not been in contact since. Jerry Hinkle, courageous dynamic Publisher of the Holabird Advocate is only slightly worried, because it has been reported that she may have been in Wyoming during Christmas. Be that as it may, you can keep up with Kassidee on her blog:kassideeprague.blogspot.com, when she posts a report. She does that about as often as Mavis Kennedy wins at bingo. All of us here at the holabird advocate sure wish Mavis would fill another card soon so we can here from Kassidee again.
There is a destiny that makes us brothers,
No one goes his way alone;
All that we send into the lives of others,
Comes back into our own.

The Fox Reality Channel is part of this months free preview. So far the only show that has impressed me was "Corkscrewed: The Wrath Of Grapes". It "stars" two Brittish guys who have more money than brains. They are involved with "American Idle" somehow. If you've ever wanted to start your own vineyard, grow your own grapes and bottle your own wine, watch this show. If you still want to do it, go ahead!
CBS has an interesting premise for a Reality show. Find some quasi celebrities, and some has beens, put then through the Police Academy, then turn them loose and stick around to watch the fun. The show is called, ironiclly enough, "Armed and Famous". Erik Estrada from "CHiPs" right by himself is worth the price of admission for me. They also have Michael Jackson's sister (NO! Not Janet!), Ozzy Ozbournes son(NO! Not Kelly!), and some midget called Wee Man who I've never even heard of before. I guess it'll do until CBS brings "Jericho" back on Wednesday night were it belongs!

Wives tend to be extra sensitive about germs and bacteria and any unseen microorganisms that can hurt their family members. If a perfectly good T-bone steak gets a little paint on it, or a handful of mashed potatoes drops onto a gravel driveway, they quickly scoop them up and throw them into the trash. Men are much more resilient. If food is relatively chewable and more or less in the same range of color it started out in, they'll eat it. And they'll eat it quickly, before their wives confiscate it. Many wives are food police. Many husbands are repeat offenders. And the biggest law that separates the two sides is the "Best Before" date. How many tons of perfectly good food have been thrown out by a food cop just because it reached an arbitrary date, stuck on there by some marketing genius who realizes that once it expires, you'll need to buy more. Whenever you see a man in the middle of the night, sitting alone in a chair with the fridge door open eating everything in sight, you know that tomorrow is "Best Before" day.
