“Many fans asked for my thoughts on the “Duck Dynasty” controversy. They pressed and pressed, but I refused to quack.
But I can’t duck this issue forever. I don’t really care feather someone on a reality show said something about gays that didn’t fit the bill. He’s entitled to his opinion, even if it’s for the birds. But the network also is worried about flocking with its base, so if it feels it should drake him over the coals for making his fowl comments, so be it.
So that’s migrate opinion.”

#56180 The sites Music Section Updates

Posted by Sanctuary on 16 July 2013 - 08:20 PM

I'll be taking some time the week of the 22nd of this month to work on getting the music section of the site back up to it's glory with all the artists taking their rightful places. Sorry it's taking so long. Re-working images, and of course finding some that are workable, is a bit of a challenge. Bare with me as I sort it all out.

 

When I'm done I'll post again hoping for some feed back and making sure I didn't miss anyone's favorites!

So this cop pulls a friend of mine over and looks at him saying, "Your eyes look all red and it smells funny in your car, have you been smoking weed?"

 

My friend looks retorts, "No. And sir, your eyes look quite glazed. Have you been eating donuts?"

 

......

 

A man will look at a woman's rear end and might go, "Wow, what an ass!"
A woman will look at a man's face and say the same thing....

 

.............

 

A woman in a hot air balloon realized she was lost. She reduced altitude and spotted a man below.

She descended a bit more and shouted, "Excuse me, can you help me? I promised a friend I would meet him an hour ago but I don't know where I am."

The man below replied "You're in a hot air balloon hovering approximately 30 feet above the ground. You're between 40 and 41 degrees north latitude and ...between 59 and 60 degrees west longitude."

"You must be an engineer," said the balloonist. "I am", replied the man.

"How did you know?"

"Well, answered the balloonist, "everything you told me is technically correct, but I've no idea what to make of your information, and the fact is I'm still lost. Frankly, you've not been much help at all. If anything, you've delayed my trip even more."

The man below responded, "You must be in management."

"I am," replied the balloonist, "but how did you know?"

"Well," said the man, "You don't know where you are or where you're going.You have risen to where you are due to a large quantity of hot air. You made a promise which you've no idea how to keep, and you expect people beneath you to solve your problems?!!"

This is a cover of "Rainbow in the Dark" that Ronnie James Dio sang. She did it as a tribute
to him. I woke up this morning and got completely blown away by how awesome it is.

I know if Ronnie were alive he'd probably enjoy this cover, and you should too.
So please check it out when you get a chance, you won't be disappointed.
