CACA DO DO FOR BRAINS
es, that's what I think sometimes. Last night I was watching reruns of CSI. Inside an insane asylum a patient is murdered. The murderer is caught as usally. The murderer is talking to the victim as he, the victim, is working with a potter wheel while making a clay urn. As the urn is whirl around the wheel and the man is handling the urn as it turns, the voice is also etched into the clay... just like a old plastic record was made years ago. Labels: Twilight Zone
The CSI team take the urn, turn their computer on and picked out the voices on the clay. At the end of the show Gil Grisson made reference to the "Lazarus Bowl", whereby a woman in Biblical times was spinning a clay bowl on a pottery wheel and it was found there was voices on this urn... the language was an ancient Arabic. The make a long story shorter, it was discovered it was the voice of Jesus speaking the words to raise Lazarus from the death.
This story had a vague ring to it... I started looked through out the Internet for the Bible story. I hadn't found it. The even went to the Vatican library... surely they have this story. Nada...
I kept coming with story's from The X Files called Hollywood AD:
Scully relates to Mulder the story of the Lazarus bowl, a clay bowl made at the time Christ raised Lazarus from the dead, that recorded his words in the clay and has the power to raise the dead. Scully gives the bowl to resident techie Chuck Burks, who discovers an Aramaic voice, that appears to be one man commanding another to rise from the dead.
I could sworn I heard or read that they found this urn and and and.... oh well...
Have you ever had a situation you swore that something was true... only to come to find out it was all in your mind?
P.S. Yes, it really is 1 AM... ugh!

JUST YOU CAN'T UNDERSTAND ENGLISH...
ow I have installed the Not So Normal News in 10 different languages!! In case you've missed them, the flags noting the languages are up above where I am writing. You can run your cursor on the flag it it will tell you what country it is there for you. I am debating putting the United States as an foreign language since I don't what we speak, officially, anymore. Labels: Commercials
Also, there are just 182 days left until Christmas! That's right... 182. In an effort to help you, I have installed the "Denny's Mall and Emporium" on the left side in the Index. Now I did my part by installing it... now it's your part... that part being whereby you go to it and maybe buy something! If you're going to buy anything on the Internet... why not buy from "Denny's Mall and Emporium"? We both win here! You buy the item you want and I make a small profit so I can buy a can of tuna fish for dinner next week!
The is another reason I need your help. I really want to you and look it over and tell me if I am missing something... Meaning items or whatever I don't have in there. Or could I organize it better?
DON'T FORGET THAT IT'S STROKE DAY
HERE I GO AGAIN...
he time is now, exactly at 12:21 AM... and you know where your Denny Shane is? Yes, he's sitting right in front of his computer and typing this blog article. Yes, wide awake... not in bed like normal people... Labels: Where my damn sleeping pills?
This is what 3 nights in a row now? I even had nice clean sheets and pillow cases on the bed... About 10ish I decided I was going to hop right into bed after my shower. Which I did... MmmMMmmMmmMmm... the sheets and pillow case smelled soooo fresh. and then I turned one way, then the other way and back again. I fluffed out the blanket... it felt so comfortable and warm.... and I layed awake thinking about the sheets, pillow and blanket.... then about the blanket, pillow case and the sheets. Then the refrigerator
I did accidentally leave the refrigerator door open? That's stupid since I KNOW I closed it. Okay, I may as well check it while I am going to the bathroom... Damn it! Why do I fall for this crap. I know the fridge door is closed... but I look anyway. Yep, shut and closed securely.
Ya know... I can sit here typing all night/morning since I am not going to bed anytime soon.
Well, I'll see y'all in the morning when you get here... I might as go put a pot of coffee... gonna be a looonnnngggg night.

PLEASE HELP ME BEFORE I GO CRAZY!
ou've seen this commercial on TV... Right? The celebrities are talking about the The Members Project from American Express. Ellen DeGeneres is in the middle and Marty Scorsese, playing the Director of the commercial. Labels: Commercials
PLEASE name the other people in the commercial!!! I've loaded all kinds of info into search engines and keep coming with the commercial but none of them name the actors. I've even watched it on UTube... nada. I even went to the Amex web site... they have the commercial, but no names.
C'mon, you know the answer...
Peanut Queen = Andre Agassa, Cheryl Crowe, Rehdeaded Guy Famous Skateboard?
Me: Peanut Queen was right... it is Shaun White (red head guy)
I found it!!
The black haired beauty is Alicia Keyes. And the casual guy playing 'Tim' is David Alan Basche who played in "United #93."
HOW TIMES HAVE YOU WISHED YOU COULD...
scape to a deserted island somewhere? I was just sitting here looking over the headlines and stories from where I would pick a story to write about for the blog.
After reading for about a half hour, I was so depressed I should have taken an another anti-depression pill. What this world doing to itself? They don't ever sit down and look at the bigger picture?
I watched CNN and watched Hamas Islamist take over Gaza... I watched the destruction being done by themselves. The guy standing on a desk in Gaza city hall, raising his gun and shouting something. Can someone, anybody at all... please tell me what Hamas will bring to that region of the world?
Personally, I think the whole Iraq situation is a lost situation. How many more lives on both sides do we have bury before we pull out? We're not winning... shrug.
Then on the other side of the globe we have North Korea... big deal they are shutting down their reacter... there is anybody out there who doesn't think that the first time they don't get what they want the reacter gets turned on...
As far as Iran... we should have blown the place up when we had the chance.
And I believe we have a deal with bin Laden... you stay hidden and we won't capture you and execute you like Sadam. I don't for a minute think we can't find this guy.
And let's see... is there anything that pisses me off around the world?
Maybe I should not eat hot syrup banana splits before going to bed...
TODAY IS MONDAY, 18 JUNE 2007
es indeee it is... and all day it is... and do have anything to say? Because I have nothing to say... Oh, did I mentioned it was also 2:07 AM? But then again, it's not the time you're reading this article.... unless you are reading it over my shoulder as I type it.
You're still reading? I just would have given up a few sentences ago. By any chance you got anything you would want me to talk about? Go ahead and put it in the Comments and if I have nothing to talk about tomorrow... maybe I'll pick your subject to write about.
It's 2:17AM and I'll going to bed. Buona Sierra!
Guess how much is here? This little pile was picked up in Mexico during a drug bust.
Did you guess $207 million bucks?

Please don't forget to this weekend to come back and go to Stroke Laugh. Ok, ok... the article is already posted you so go read it now. But if you read it today then you won't have anything to read tomorrow!
WOMAN DIES WAITING FROM HELP IN ER
amily members say hospital workers ignored their pleas for help, so they called 911 from the hospital frantically seeking help. A woman is lying on the floor of a Los Angeles County hospital emergency room. She is throwing up blood. Labels: Hospitals
A half an hour later, Edith Rodriquez, 43, a mother of three, was dead, leaving the family reeling. The county supervisor is outraged, and it's all been caught on tape.
Rodriguez had been to the emergency room on three separate occasions. Each time she was released after being given prescriptions for pain.
This time, she lay on the floor of the emergency room for 45 minutes. A security video shows staffers and other patients standing by as a janitor cleaned the floor around her.
This is not the first time I have heard of that happening in hospitals in this country. What the heck is happening in this country...
What kind of medical personnel who we have working in hospitals?
AND, NOW AN IMPORTANT MESSAGE
s you have noticed I have changed some stuff around on the blog. Added a few things to hold some interest, deleted a few things I got tired of seeing and just changed odds and ends. Labels: True Lame Excuses
Do me a favor? Over on the right column, where I have the Drop List of blogs, please look to see if I have your blog. I went through the list and erased blogs that were either out of date, or out of commission... whatever. There is also the possibility I may accidentally erased you.
As of guessed... I don't have crap to talk about this morning. I had my speaking session with the speech therapist yesterday. She comes two times a week. I think I have come a long way since the last stroke. My sentences are 90% understandle now.
Know what? I am falling asleep at this desk, lol... it's 4:23 AM and I am going back to bed. Sorry for the no brainer blog article this morning. Paris hasn't even done anything interesting to blog about... I can't wait for the stealth shower pictures to hit the internet... lol

I HAVE FOUND GOD .....AGAIN
es children... Last night I once I have found God again, and even called out to Him. While walking into my office, once again I stubbed my toe... my little toe... smashing it into the desk. I called out loud, "God damn it!" And I even went further, and I begged God to smite the desk. Labels: Hollywood Insanity
And... don't laugh... if Paris told Babs Walters that she found God after spending 2 days in "prison", even I found Him again after stubbing my toe on the desk... again, and again, again, and yes... again... at least once a week stubbing my toe on this stupid desk.
Normally a prisoner discovers God after spending years in jail... death row inmates finally find religion someplace while walking that final 100 feet. Paris was set a record for finding God within 48 hours behind bars.
She even said she wanted to start a home similar to the Ronald McDonald Homes, only it is called "The Paris Hilton Home." Bang. bang, bang... <--- my head hitting my desk.
Cells in prison go for about $99 per night... Paris is living in luxury now as she moved in the hospital wing which goes for $1100.00 per night!
Now don't laugh... Paris is planning a book about her life behind bars... so young girls that who look up to her will avoid the hellish nightmare she has lived in the black jungle board!
I'm sorry guys, I am wasting more space on this story... but it this better than fiction. I never, never would believe it but I was alive to actually witness this mess..... and it's not over... and it's not over it... not by a long shot.
So come on... let's hear you really feel. Laugh!!

I CAN'T STAND IT ANY MORE!!
s you know I have not been writing a blog article on the weekends. Instead I have been writing a blog article over on my other blog at Stroke Laugh. Labels: Hollywood Insanity
However, the latest on the fiasco on Paris threw me for a loop... I am providing with her statement issued regarding her latest trip to jail. The catch here is to read the statement... and also to pretend it came from Paris's head.
"Today I told my attorneys not to appeal the judge's decision. While I greatly appreciate the Sheriff's concern for my health and welfare, after meeting with doctors, I intend to serve my time as ordered by the judge.
This is by far the hardest thing I have ever done. During the past several days, I have had a lot of time to reflect and have already learned a bitter but important lesson from this experience.
As I have said before, I hope others will learn from my mistake. I have also had time to read the mail from my fans. I very much appreciate all of their good wishes and hope they will keep their letters coming.
I must also say that I was shocked to see all of the attention devoted to the amount of time I would spend in jail for what I had done by the media, public and city officials.
I would hope going forward that the public and the media will focus on more important things, like the men and women serving our country in Iraq, Afghanistan and other places around the world."
Now I know I have a few strokes behind me... and I realize I have a few screws lose and or missing up there....
BUT come on now... is there is ANYONE out there that truly believes that Paris thinks that? ... or even knows where Afghanistan is located?

COME ON DOWN... FOR THE LAST TIME
ob Barker, came on down, the for the last time yesterday. The 83 year old MC bid the Price This Right goodbye after 35 years. The final show was taped. Labels: Hollywood Insanity
I remember, as a kid, watching Bob on Truth or Consequences 50 years ago and then eventually switching over to Price in 1972. Now I do admitting to watching the show often, but not to be a dye in the wool fanatic. As I gotten older I do admit losing interest to the show. C'est la vie.
And another show took a final bow, King of Queen. At nine seasons old, The King of Queens was TV's longest running sitcom. One of the main reasons I watched the show was Reah Remini. I just read that really surprised me... it had a laugh-track.
Wow... with these 2 block-busters now gone, there is only one show worth watching... The Simple Life, once it ummmm finished the hiatus it is on... for at the 23 day break.
And for a quick word from our sponsor...
Oh... don't forget Father's Day is coming up soon... Don't forget this year he wants a book. Oh, another thing... he wanted me to remind you that he would rather you buy from the Denny's Bookstore
Now you may return to blogging.
P.S. I am going playing commercials until you buy something!

ARE YOU READY FOR THE
FIVE CENT TEN CENT TOUR?
rass doesn't grow on any busy roads... and lately I have been a busy highway. You may have noticed a few things that I've added to the Newsstand over the past days. Labels: Boredom
Today is the day you get a Grand Tour. On the left... on top....
Want to listen to Music? This is turned off when you first arrived. Maybe you want to sit back, enjoy coffee while you read the news? You can turned the "radio" on and listen to the radio.
Then next is an expanded Index of sections of the news. First Page, Medical Page, Art Page, Library Page and last the Bookstore. Some of y'all have seen these before... and some have not. Check each page out. The Bookstore is where I can make some money. It's a Amazon store where you buy books and I can make a small profit. So now don't run to Amazon to buy your books... come here! ... and help put food on my table. lol
Next is a little widget that shows you whose had been on recently. I'm not sure it will stay. Shrug.
There are some other things but I am too tired to point them out. lol... you can browse around to find them out.
Now it's 3:50 AM and I am going back to bed! Yawn....
MY HEAD IS STILL SHAKING...
o, No, No... I can't believe what I just read. Browsing throughout the world of news, in order to you the latest in headlines and gossip, my mouth dropped so open... It's still laying on the floor somewhere. Labels: Hollywood Insanity
Remember the TV show, Big Brother? I have to admit that the first year of the show had watching every week. I also have to admit, I also never watched it again after the first year.
Once again I was reminded why...
One of the housemates, Emma Cornell, one of the contestants... father had died while the girl was in the house.
Co-executive producer Kris Noble admitted he and the show's other producers were still discussing possible options with Emma's family.
But he said she would definitely be told off camera upon her eviction.
"We haven't worked it out yet – we don't have to right now because she has not been nominated this week," Noble said.
Big Brother will not televise the moment housemate Emma Cornell learns her father has died, producers have revealed.

BUM QUIET HOLIDAY
QUESTION: WHAT DOES PARIS HILTON AND
wenty-Two Hundred other lucky females have in common? ANSWER: By midnight Tuesday-night they will all be sleeping together... kinda... Labels: Hollywood Insanity
Gone will be her diamond tiara, expensive clothings and the smug, stuckup kisser... Paris will able to add another title to her long list of titles: CONVICT
God, what I wouldn't do to be a fly on the wall of that jail cell. She'll dress like them (orange jumpsuit), and she'll eat like them (three meals a day). Paris will be housed in a so-called special-needs housing unit. (Hilton's special need is her celebrity.) The pod consists of 12 cells, combining to hold up to a 24 inmates.
Lights on at 6 a.m.
Breakfast, usually consisting of cold cereal, bread, orange juice, milk and a hard-boiled egg, from 6 a.m. to 7:30 a.m.
Lunch, usually consisting of a sandwich, an apple, cookies, veggies and a beverage, from 11 a.m. to 12:30 p.m.
Dinner, centered around spaghetti, pepper steak or perhaps macaroni and cheese, from 4 p.m. to 5:30 p.m.
Lights out at 10 p.m.
Next day, the same drill. Everyday Paris... for 23 days straight. How will she ever do it?
Inmates like Hilton take their meals inside their cells and can receive daily visits from their attorneys, and one visit a day from others on the weekend. Daily downtime lasts about an hour—precisely how long Hilton can spend outside her cell, and in the larger housing pod.
The Simple Life star will not have a TV, but she'll be near one. The housing unit has one wall-mounted set in the common area. She'll hear the "Simple Life" from only her cell.
Said sheriff's spokesman Steve Whitmore: "She can see it from her cell."
