MilesTones • Beware This Day! MilesTones Takes a Look.
Stay behind the curtain. It is Friday the 13th, the day in history (1789) when Benjamin Franklin wrote to a friend: “In this world nothing can be said to be certain except death and taxes.” Whatever you today, do NOT walk under a black cat.
Susan Boyle, the frumpy church woman who stunned the world with her singing, has officially arrived. She has a stalker and now has police protection. A real sign of the times is that…. the stalker is a….woman!
This week we have been celebrating the fall of the Berlin Wall while the ACLU is trying to put a wall around us…in Ireland, Grand National Award winning jockey, Paul Cranberry, was banned from jokeying for 30 days for riding a racing horse while drunk. It’s the second time….he’s Irish for corn sakes!
In Germany (According to the German paper,The Local) a Mexican, a Texan and an Australian put their enchildas together to open Germany’s first ‘Authentic Mexican Food Restaurant.’....a tip of the Sombrero to that.
Obama sitting in the Oval Office, who stated that we “should not jump to conclusions” after a committed Muslim was shot with his gun in his hand after he had killed 14 military personnel and wounding 35 others (how’s that again?), just signed a bill to open our borders to HIV carriers and to welcome foreigners with AIDS into our country…but he won’t let that Irishman in.
The doomsday movie, 2012, just opened, which shows everything on earth, including the earth itself being totally annihilated during a series of freak storms and earthquakes. However, there is only one thing left standing….Mecca, the Islamic Shrine…and that salvation came, according to an interview with the film’s director, through “Islamic Intimidation.” So if everything and everyone on earth is destroyed, who will come to Mecca? Maybe the 72 virgins.
Sound advice for Friday the 13th: Whatever you do about this date….do NOT be superstitious….because it is bad luck to be supersitious.
