I suppose I could fill up this post with a lot of information about Valentines Day. But I won’t. I will post this History channel link which contains considerable information about Valentines Day including survival tips, quotations, history’s romantics, famous couples, historical romances, presidential love letters, quizs, games and much more including this link to the Biography.com game called the Love Machine (Yikes, my celebrity match was Bette Midler! Maybe I should have clicked on the robot option!) Plus similar to an earlier post I am including another 3-d image from the Magic Eye pictures I have collected. In this image of flowers if you click on the image and enlarge it then look closely a special Valentines Heart Image will pop out in your mind’s eye.

My satellite system was down for repairs the other night so I missed the also-ran contender’s assailing attempts to knock Hillary Clinton from the wide lead primary lap position she holds. Still I have been hearing some interesting conjecture and rumors concerning the overall debate. One rumor I am passing along concerning a secret post debate conclave created by POTUS candidate Dennis Kucinich along with currently residing immigrants Dr. Dick Solomon, Laura Vasquez, Samuel Francisco, Jack Jeebs and illegal alien sympathizers/former INS agents Gorman Seedling & Eli Turnbull, plus MIB special envoys Jesse Ventura and Alex Trebek. Details are sketchy, but evidently Kucinich, in a desperation move to save debate face and his POTUS candidacy, is seeking their advice on the plight of illegal aliens, many of which are in hiding/costume to avoid detection, in this country and how they can help to get him elected. In return he is supposedly promising full pardons and legal documentation for all those illegal aliens currently stateside. I am not sure how he could pull this off much less the actual cultural affects once the widespread appearance of so many dissimilar illegal alien inhabitants. I worry that the culture shock would be enormous, though since most are located in NYC it might not be as damaging as in other US locations. But I suppose it does not surprise me that Kucinich, or any other POTUS wannabe, would be willing to sell out our country for the title of POTUS and personal verification of his UFO accounts. The colossal ego is often the drug dependence that is the hardest to overcome
Historical background of the secret enclave member:
Cold weather is one of life’s reminders that your body is getting older whether or not you are. Here are theScoundrels ten signs a man is getting older.
10–> You start selecting your soaps by allergic additives rather than cost.
09–> You are swearing at your bifocals in the same manner your father does.
08–> Your plate of food in front of you looks too enormous to finish.
07–> You choose vehicles by rating comfort over sporty.
06–> You prefer to watch sports on your TV rather than participate in the fun.
05–> You actually start combing your hair, out of necessity to cover up those deepening furrows in your field of follicles.
04–> Midnight finds you tucked in your warm bed rather than heading out on the second leg of your Friday Night party run.
03–> Your body creaks and pops when you get up like Nick Nolte’s in the movie “North Dallas Forty“.
02–> You would rather talk about romancing the pretty ladies than actually romance the pretty ladies.
And the theScoundrel’s number 1 sign you are getting older:
You are more excited about your morning bowel movement than your morning wood!
Looking for exhilarating activities? However has bungee jumping off bridges lost its thrill? Maybe shooting the river rapids, climbing tall mountains and normal skydiving for your thrill-seeking adventures has left your blood tepid instead of burning with the passion of excitement! Well no need to fear, because coming to thrill-seekers around the world (where expense is not an issue) in the near future will be the ultimate adventure of taking skydiving to the next level! According to an article by Michael Hanlon in the Daily Mail, a group of thrill-seekers are working on an attempt to duplicate the 1960 feat of former US Air Force Capt./Col. Joseph Kittinger. In 1960, Kittinger was part of a study in high altitude parachute jumps called Project Excelsior. The third jump of the project involved Kittinger jumping from a helium balloon platform over twenty miles above the Earth’s surface. According to the article that is over three times the cruising height of commercial jet airliners. (I wouldn’t know – and yes you can just call me B.A. Baracus, because the only way they are gonna drag me on a plane is doping me out of my mind.) Kittinger was estimated to have reached speeds up to 714 mph as he traveled the twenty-mile distance, before parachuting safely to the ground in thirteen minutes and forty-five seconds . Hanlon’s article goes on to state that the group of entrepreneurs planning on chasing and breaking Kittinger’s 1960 record are planning to attempt to expand the record jump to as far as sixty miles above the earths surface. I am assuming they will use totally equipped space suits, if not, then hopefully they will supply “Depends” to wear inside the suit! Hmm, sounds like fun but I think I will wait for the video game version! Story link below.
I highly recommend reading: Hanlon’s article on Kittenger’s jump and the newly planned adventure to break his forty-year old record!
