Well this is my new WeeklyRoundUp, I thought I would wait until Friday morning to type it up and just write about what I could remember about the week but it seems I am having trouble remembering things to put in. So next week I will write them as they go and then put it all together on Friday. The WeeklyRoundUp will be a way for me to comment on the fly so you can see exactly what I’m thinking, in fact I will not even go back and proofread the text so it is as genuine as possible.
This week was for the most part a good week. I celebrated Independence Day with some friends, and was told I got somewhat gitty although I don’t remember much of it. And that I don’t remember much of it was odd since all I had was Cheerwine* and snack food, but anyway. I saw the new Tom Cruise movie “War of the Worlds”, say that ten times fast, and I thought it was a great movie although the ending leaves you with questions of how and why.
Then on Thursday I woke up to a surprise. Some man woke me up that went by the name of Tiger, said the same way as the Pooh character’s name, he wanted to know about a storm door quote that he had left. He had woken me up from a deep sleep and I was not happy right then, I couldn’t go back to sleep for a while so I turned the TV on and saw what had happened in London. I was still half a sleep so the news didn’t really hit me at that point, I knew what happened and understood it but it didn’t affect me for a while. I soon turned back over and went to sleep, when I woke up this time it hit me what had happened. Terrorist had struck in the heart of London! Many had been killed, hundreds injured, and more deaths were coming. My heart and prayers go out to the people of London and the UK, this is further evidence we need to hunt down and destroy those who strike with these cowardly acts of terror against the innocents.
I was watching a rerun of the Daily Show with Jon Stewart this morning and he had an interview with Howard Dean. I noticed something when Dean was asked what the plan was that the Democrats had that was better than the GOP’s he couldn’t answer the question. He changed the subject a little, enough you couldn’t notice, but he never actually answered the question of what the plan was. So does this mean the Democrats have no plan, just don’t know what it is, or don’t know how to say it?
I thought since I was drinking Cheerwine and its not available in most areas I would tell you what it is. It is a soft drink with as they say, “ a unique cherry taste and rich burgundy color”. L.D. Peeler first created Cheerwine in Salisbury, NC in 1917. It is one of the best drinks I have ever tasted and you haven’t lived if you’ve never had a Cheerwine. For more information on Cheerwine check out Cheerwine.com, and if you want to try some Cheerwine you can order it online here.
