The pressure cookers one made me laugh out loud! That woman really is a piece of work, isn't she?

I'm going to consult my Canadian newsfeed (oh, wait, I didn't have one, guess I'll have to create one) and then I'll tell you which one of these cartoons is my favorite. :)

I really liked that one too.

I liked the last one. Being one with nature on an ATV.

Without consulting my Canadian news, though, I did like the one with Jackie Robinson and Jason Collins.

So, does this mean we won't see you again until the Stanley Cup playoffs are over?

No, I actually having been watching it, even though Ottawa's still in it.

Why do I get the feeling that Girl Scout not only didn't sell any cookies, but also ended up owing taxes on her sales to date?

My Back Pages - October

Well, folks, I read seven (count 'em) seven books in October. One I didn't finish but even at that I hit the magic number 50 I estimated for myself by the end of the year.

I''m a bit of a political junkie so I get off on this stuff but still it kinda struck me as one long whine over losing.
Next up was the excellent Canyon of Dreams: The Magic and Music of Laurel Canyon. Laurel Canyon was the fabled area outside of Los Angeles where many musicians and artists lived. Known as a 60s enclave, the book takes a look at just who lived there over the last 80 years. A fascinating read.

I ended the month reading yet another biography, this one of the man behind Rolling Stone magazine,. It was called Sticky Fingers: The Life and Times of Jann Wenner and Rolling Stone Magazine. A fascinating read.

So last month I hit the magic number 50 I'd imagined for myself back in January. If I roll this month into my yearly total I'm at 54 books. And I still have Decem…
