Bath Salts Shorties

Bottom line: “Even healthy oils are not calorie free.” “You only think you need medication for that”: 5 psychiatric disorders with probable genetic basis. Ancient Sea Creature: “The fossilized animal, an arthropod called a fuxhianhuiid, has primitive limbs under its head, as well as the earliest example of a nervous system that extended past the head. The primitive creature […]

To the Lady in Workout Clothes ahead of me at the Grocery Store

Published on November 25, 2012 By bmagnus

Hey dear, let me tell you why you’re never going to lose that 10 to 20 pounds around your hips and waist and why your hubby is never going to lose the gut unless you change your ways. I’m not going to put all the blame on the expensive whole wheat crap that you think is […]

One heck of a life

Sad news today. Andy Griffith has passed away. Maybe you knew him from television? The man only had two monstrous TV hits and 6 decades of acting credits! What I didn’t realize is that he had a degree in music. Rest in Peace. In Closing: it’s more than a “sex” scandal; the bad idea of a […]

Music Monday: Everybody Knows a Little Place like Mexico

Published on July 1, 2012 By bmagnus

I like that it’s fun, playful, and displays a level of knowledge you wouldn’t expect from a song whose lyrics include “pack your bags real good”. It does strike me as a modern, urban version of Kokomo…. Unfortunately, the place described by the Beach Boys (and Kermit The Frog) doesn’t actually exist. Fans of the […]

I don’t think Rudolph would approve

  Personally, I don’t know whether Sniper Rifle Santa is creepier than Football Hero Santa, but it’s got to be close. In closing: So much for Republican hating on Romney; screw the TSA, everyone’s driving; on domestic oil; flat population growth; picky!; a fun game.

ShortWoman’s Musings on Travel

Published on December 9, 2011 By bmagnus

Last week, I was out of town. Having grand adventures. You know, the usual. I’m home, and things are back to normal, so let me tell you what I think about travel. On Packing: Pick your battles when it comes to your quart zip-top bag of liquids. Would it kill you to use the shampoo […]

The End of the BAMTOR Principle?

Published on February 26, 2011 By bmagnus

Alas, I can only hope. However, I do know better. Somebody’s actually going to jail for fraud at a mortgage company that caused another bank to collapse. I’m quite pleased that finally, somebody is actually being punished for a crime. But frankly, we need a lot more bankers being escorted off premises in handcuffs. The […]

Shorties in the Sky

Published on October 19, 2010 By bmagnus

Impressive: America needs roughly $2,200,000,000,000 in repairs to things like roads, tunnels, bridges and the like. You don’t suppose doing something like that might result in some kind of fiscal stimulus? Stick to feeding the poor and preaching peace: young people increasingly turned off by the hateful political crap spewed by many churches. Do Not […]

What I did on Summer Vacation

Published on August 9, 2010 By bmagnus

You probably weren’t aware that I spent most of the last week in San Francisco. Something that few people will mention to you is that takeoffs and landings from McCarran in 110+ degree heat can be a little, um, bumpy. When we arrived at SFO it was substantially cooler. I do have to give Virgin […]
