Fun with Fallon

OK y’all. Here’s a change-up post from the The Daily Cap(s). Jimmy Fallon  is just a funny guy, and talented in so many ways….

If you can, give your political attitudes a break for three minutes 21 seconds and enjoy this for just being funny several times over:

I’ve always like both genres of this music…now I’ve got them mashed! Who wants to form a quartet with me?

This one is a hoot…and it brings back several childhood musical instrument memories too boot (I think I could have played anywhere in the band had I saved the “toys”):

Just the facts, ma’am

In reading a work-related on-line article about effective presentations, one forwarded from our marketing department with professional development intent I’m sure, I found myself nodding in agreement and chuckling with one particular exerpt…

“Never Let Facts Speak for Themselves

Facts need interpretation. According to Mark Twain, “There are three kinds of lies: lies, damned lies, and statistics.” If you don’t believe this, tune in to the next political campaign. People can make facts and numbers mean almost anything. Interpret yours so that your listeners draw the same conclusions you intend.” Continue reading “Just the facts, ma’am”

The Daily Cap (3)

Ironicially, today just so happens to be the Iowa Republican Caucas. I would imagine many political opponents to the former Massachuetts governor can most likely relate to this...this...message. But wait...is this all the Governor's doing towards them? (1/3/2012 during the morning commute @ southbound Hwy121 in Fort Worth)

Favorite “cheese” of 2011

Believe it or not, I’m photo’d out…for the year.

And it has been yet another active year exercising the Canon, FugiFilm, and on occasion, the in-a-pinch iPhone camera.

In looking back at my 2011, I see that I did a lot of birding and flowering with the photos taken (or at least those that are my “favorites”). And I certainly threw in a few sunrise/sunset photos…after all, what would a set of my pics be without those kind of photos?

Take a look – let me know what you think. This has been a fun year and it has taken me several places in order to capture the handful of photos here and there…and along the way.

Giving the slip

I have officially decided that I will no longer post pictures on this blog for fear it might incite some people into not providing me comic relief opportunities (my silly every-day-America photos). It just might also cause my faithful readers to question my genuine intent, trustworthiness, integrity in bringing you the most authenitic photographs possible…believe me, I really ought to take a break from the camera and learn Photoshop if I’ve got to start doctoring photos for you guys from here on out.  Continue reading “Giving the slip”

Well I would…one day.

Got this question from a Disneyland commercial this evening: “What would you do if you had one more day?”.

So like I usually do, I twist the question a bit, take it out of context (maybe not so much), think about all that is carried in my bucket, and re-ask the question without any thought of Disneyland. This question is intended to stir the deep, soul-reaching responses you have with good friends or close family (more times than not when an adult beverage has influenced your boldness and confidence, among other things). So what would you say (do) if the question was posed to you? Gut-check!

Voted

Done voted today and proud of it. Don’t try to convince otherwise.

Here’s to watching our voting voices be heard by new and old politicians.

This election day we had 34 choices to consider at my polling place (no propositions). It took me a while to get through each choice as I wanted to vote “for” a candidate and not for “a side” had a straight party ticket vote been punched (who came up with that lousy idea anyway?). I also wanted to vote for the friends I have and know running for office as they genuinely put their heart and soul into their election and service…and knowing that of them personally, I cared less of the party label behind their name on the ballot.

Know your elected officicals Call them. Write them. Talk personally with them. Then elect them if you know them well.

And just in case it need be known, I voted for 25 Republicans, 4 Democrats, and 5 Libertarians…or if you want to look at it another way, 21 men and 13 women. Label me as you see fit…I prefer the “Proud Voting American” personally.

Let’s make a difference by voting our conscious…and be better off for it.
