Ravings and Rantings

Welcome to my cloud! It's got a nice silver lining somewhere.....Some ranting, some raving--mostly positive stuff,lots of jokes (I can't stay serious). Nothing going on here that a pina colada or mohito can't fix.

Wisdom of Youth

Custody Battle Ruling:

A seven year old boy from Toronto was at the centre of
a courtroom drama in an Ontario Superior Courthouse
this morning when he challenged a court ruling over who
should have legal custody of the juvenile.

The boyhas a history of being beaten repeatedly by both
parents and the judge had previously awarded custody to
the boy's aunt.The boy confirmed that his aunt beat him
more than his parents and refused to live there.

When the judge then suggested that he be placed with his grandparents,
the boy cried out that they beat him more severely than anyone.

The judge, in an unprecedented ruling, dramatically allowed the boy,
in spite of his youth and obvious inexperience, to make his own choice
as towho should have legal guardianship over him.

In front of a packed and cheering courtroom this morning, custody was subsequently granted to the TORONTO MAPLE LEAFS as the boy stated his firm belief that they are, in point of fact, not capable of beating anyone....and so the season begins !!!


Go Sens Go!

    I fell for that one..lol..
    My Penguins have now lost their first two with the brightest thing happening thus far being our youth, Sydney Crosby scoring the two "sweetest assists" I've ever seen in those losses.

    Loved this sooo much. Finding a hockey game on in Kansas City is like finding good pork BBQ in Isreal. And now with the TV rights being exclusive to OLN, I am in trouble. Last night, I was looking for a hockey game and OLN was just showing "big game hunting" from Africa. What the Hell?

    There you go Zomb!!

    The Senators and Leafs have this rivalry going. Almost any office around here is divided between the two teams.

    I root for Sens just to bug the Leaf folks...Bridg
