1151 - Miscellanea

1) Just got in another XM receiver, this time for the house. At a price of $29.95 after rebate, I couldn't pass it up. It's waiting to receive the activation signal now. I do have to do something different for permanent mounting of the antenna, but that will have to wait till after I get back from the Dominican Republic (assuming I go, which still isn't confirmed yet). Right now, it's sitting on the front porch, with the cable dangling out the front office window.

2) One guy commented in the alt.books.tom-clancy newsgroup that the French should quit complaining about 400 Americans killed in Iraq, since they had 12,000 people die needlessly from heat last summer. Clancy's reply:

"Once on Hill Street Blues Belcher is concerned that his mom is suffering from the heat. A hood tells him to tell her just to sit in the bath tub with tepid water and shazaam, the problem goes away.

Can the French be so averse to a bath tub as this?"

current mood: [mood icon] giggly
