Looks like we have a rominee named Money.  LOL.  I was going to vote for Santorum if it came to Texas but I don’t know.  If there is an open primary in Texas it would be bad luck for Obama if I were to vote for one of these guys. Why because that person would win the election in 2012.  My vote has not missed yet.

Romney keeps invoking his wife Anne Romney.  Who  the heck is she? They say she is his secret weapon but don’t know.  My question is when will the other guys get out of the race.

A dozen tornadoes hit the Metroplex

That’s what I just heard on the radio.  We locked the school down today and all the schools across the area locked down for at least half an hour.  The students were wild and calm at the same time.

In Fort Worth everything is fine.  Arlington, TX was hit on the south west side.  The Ballpark is fine and Six flags is fine.  There were some planes damaged at the airport and it was also shut down for a while too.

Overall for a lot of tornadoes there were no deaths or injuries and people were mostly put between the hours with the most danger that was the good news.  But lots of homes were damanged in a few complexes and in Lancaster TX.  But this was one for the books.  Thanks for worrying about us it was a dangerous situation.

He reported multiple tornado touchdowns across the county, including in the city of Cleburne, south of Fort Worth and southwest of Dallas.

A new tornado warning was issued about 2:45 p.m. CT for Arlington, which is between Dallas and Fort Worth.

Former Gov. Sarah Palin graces The Today Show Tuesday

Katie Couric ignored Palin and her debut in Katie’s old seat.  She now hosts GMA.  Sarah seemed fired up. I taped her debut but have  not watched it yet. Had to leave early this am and  I have a hot yoga class tonight.  Gotta keep the yoga booty going LOL.

 And in case you were unaware a person keeps the title for life once elected to any office or if they have earned a degree such as MD they are always referred to as Doctor even if retired.  BTW only MDs are doctors the PhDs are “doctors of philosophy” but not doctors. They hold a doctorate–

MD means medical doctor no other degree says that.

And within the first few minutes of NBC’s popular morning program, it was clear that Palin had a strategy for handling the show that was once hosted by Couric – plenty of self-deprecating humor. By contrast, Couric’s approach was to completely ignore Palin; she made no reference to the 2008 race or her blockbuster interview with the then-vice presidential candidate that many credited with dooming the GOP ticket.

The first glimpse viewers of the “Today” show got of Palin was her head buried behind an open newspaper.

“Oh, man, she’s doing her homework!” co-host Matt Lauer said.

Did OJ’s son kill Nicole and Goldman? New book says Yes

O.J. is Innocent and I Can Prove It: The Shocking Truth about the Murders of Nicole Simpson and Ron Goldman at Amazon

“You’re dealing with a young man who just weeks prior had checked into a hospital where he said he was out of his medication and was about to rage,” Dear said. “I have no doubt he had no intention of killing her, but [he] confronted her and, as a result, something happened.”

Dear said the diaries he obtained, which were allegedly written by Jason Simpson, refer to the young man’s obsession with knives and the problems he was purportedly dealing with.

One entry allegedly reads, “It’s the year of the knife for me. I cut away my problems with a knife. Anybody touches my friends — I will kill them. I’m also tired of being Dr. Jekyll [and] Mr. Hyde.”

Apple’s decided you really, really want one of its new 13.3-inch MacBook Pros — more so than one of its new 15-inch models, and so it’s ordered many more of the former than the latter as it ramps up production for a spring/summer release window. So sayeth that bulwark of overseas tech tittle-tattle, DigiTimes.

That’s assuming these laptops actually exist, of course. The story goes something like this: Apple’s allegedly working on new 13- and 15-inch model MacBook Pros that either look the same as or something like the company’s slimline, front-tapering MacBook Airs. How they’re planning to market them against the Airs — whether they’re planning to maintain the Pro/Air family delineation or just roll the two into one — is anyone’s guess.

Both 13- and 15-inch models are on assembly lines now, according to DigiTimes

Is this a good idea? I get lots of ugly comments but you can’t kill or stop the troll who writes it IMO.

Being obnoxious on the Internet may soon cease to be a fundamental right in Arizona, where lawmakers approved a measure that effectively makes trolling illegal.

As Gizmodo reports, Arizona House Bill 2549 passed both legislative houses last week and awaits approval by Governor Jan Brewer. It states:

It is unlawful for any person, with intent to terrify, intimidate, threaten, harass, annoy or offend, to use ANY ELECTRONIC OR DIGITAL DEVICE and use any obscene, lewd or profane language or suggest any lewd or lascivious act, or threaten to inflict physical harm to the person or property of any person.

Like so much other knee-jerk technology legislation, Arizona’s bill is noble at heart. Its goal is to stop cyber-bullying by outlawing threats and intimidation delivered via Internet.

That’s RIM CEO Thorsten Heins talking yesterday, as he discussed some of the measures that the company is taking in the wake of its dismal quarterly earnings report. Some observers — including me —  interpreted the comments as indicating that the company planned to step back from the consumer market, thus ending its longtime strategy of going after both big companies and individual consumers.

Except that RIM is now saying it’s not that simple. With RIM, it often feels, nothing is ever simple.

Patrick Spence, its managing director of global sales and regional marketing, told British news site Pocket-Lint that “The claim that RIM has…

Dude, where’s my iPad? Varietyis reporting that Ashton Kutcher will play Steve Jobs in Jobs, an indie film about the late Apple co-founder and CEO, who passed away last October.

Joshua Michael Stern, who directed and wrote 2008’s Swing Vote, will direct, and Matt Whiteley will write the script. The film, according to Variety, will “chronicle Steve Jobs from wayward hippie to co-founder of Apple,” though it’s not clear how much of the movie will cover Jobs’ later years with Apple. The resemblance between Kutcher and young Steve Jobs is pretty strong, at least.

Jobs is not to be confused with the big-budget biopic that Sony Pictures is working on. That film will be based off Walter Isaacson’s official biography, and according to a rumor from last November, will feature either George Clooney or…
