~ Packers! ~ Entertainment? Ha! ~ Feutticini Alfredo ~

Good 36ยบ very very foggy morning.

PACKERS WIN!!! Whoooooo hoooooo!!!

What a game. 31-25. Up down, up down, up down. Awesome. Sorry Steelers.  Conversions! Hello Roethlisberger, they sunk you. Three of them!

A couple of things I didn't like .. one was Christina Aguilara singing the Star Spangled Banner. Crap! Stick to the song, the melody, the way it was written, and for God's sake ... know the words! It's NOT all about how many high notes the trashy looking blonde can hit!

Don't get your shorts in a knot, it's my opinion. I'm entitled. But, I'm not the only one upset with this rendition. It's on the news. The only worst singing of our National Anthem was when Rosie O'Donnell sang it off key and grabbing her crotch! Ho! Not laughing... she's one! (***Ok, I have been corrected by my dear friend, O, who reminded me it was Rosanne Barr, not Rosie who sang and grabbed! Both are pigs, anyway!)
Then there was the Black Eyed Peas half time. OMG, what junk. Again, my opinion. I like music, not crap that has a beat.

The things I did like were little snippets of people attending the game... Jennifer Aniston, John Travolta, Ron Howard, A Rod with his current gf Cameron Diaz feeding him popcorn (!), and Bushie and Laura. She and he both always look perfect. Cute couple! And also Condoleezza Rice sat in Dan Rooney's booth with them. Interestingly enough, Dan Rooney, the "boss of the Steelers" and a lifelong Republican, voted for Obama! Imagine. LOL, didn't see BO sitting in his booth! Ya think he's a little upset with the current administration and BO's politics????
I also liked the Budweiser commercials .. but, not as good as previous years. And, liked the Dorritos commercial where the guy house-sitting forgets to feed the fish, water the plant, and knocks over grandpa's ashes off the mantle. Everything revived, even grandpa, with Dorritos! LOL

Atlas laid on his bed...

Maggie laid on the couch....

And while Harley sat next to me....
Atlas was eyeball to eyeball with him occasionally...

Ok, so historically this date..... 
1935 – The classic board game Monopoly is invented.
   I have one made in the 1940's with "hotels" and "houses" made of wood and metal playing pieces. This is one our family used to play.
1962 – The United States bans all Cuban imports and exports.
     Ahhhh.... those luscious cigars a lot of men (and women) loved! So, my darling being a cigar loving/smoking man, he got his 'hand rolled' Cuban (Cuban tobacco seed grown) cigars from Rau, down in Los Angeles. We'd go once a month and get him a box of cigars and Rau would give us a cup of Cuban coffee. OMG. Talk about concentrated caffeine!!! WOW. He had a room full of Cuban ladies hand rolling the cigars. Interesting to watch!
1986 – Twenty-eight years of one-family rule end in Haiti, when President Jean-Claude Duvalier flees the Caribbean nation.
1990Dissolution of the Soviet Union: The Central Committee of the Soviet Communist Party agrees to give up its monopoly on power.
    Ha ha ha ha... on the anniversary of Monopoly, the game!!!!
1991Haiti's first democratically-elected president, Jean-Bertrand Aristide, is sworn in.
    And shortly thereafter he was thrown out by a coup. What a country of stupid stupid people! Nothing works there!!!
