Death Penalty for Suspect in the USS Cole Attack?

"American military prosecutors Monday asked a senior official to approve charges against a Guantanamo detainee for his alleged role in the attack on the USS Colein Yemen in 2000. That and a variety of other terrorism charges against the man could carry the death penalty."

"The prosecutors have requested the charges against Abd al-Rahim al-Nashiri, a Saudi citizen of Yemeni descent, who is among 14 men the U.S. government considers "high value detainees." The men were held by the Central Intelligence Agency in secret prisons before being transferred to the military-run detention center on the U.S. Naval Base at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba two years ago."

Ah.... Guantanamo... you know!! The place where we house all kinds of innocent people just because we are mean nasty Americans!

Make no mistake... the war on terror is not over... it ain't done.... We are still chasing and catching the bad guys... and by God despite the liberal lefties among us...

Sunday Song, Higher Ground

Sunny - Hi 112 Lo 89 for Baghdad, Iraq
Scattered Thunderstorms - Hi 105 Lo 76 for Qandahar, Afghanistan
Scattered Thunderstorms - Hi 79 Lo 59 for Northern KY, USA

Song of the week: Higher Ground, Stevie Wonder or remake by Red Hot Chili Peppers

I love this song... the music... I am a purist when it comes to music... I prefer the original version but in this case I like RHCP version just as much... Flea's bass gets in your bloodstream and just pumps through your veins. Now... the lyrics are about reincarnation and it would be really nice if my faith allowed for do-overs... and trust me... I could use them... I've done some things in my life that I wish I could change or even tweak... but my Christian faith does not allow me to dip into other religions and certainly doesn't give me the luxury of a Groundhog Day... so, I've got one shot while I'm here.

Happy Independence Day... Do we have as much freedom as we did last year? as 5 years ago? 10? 20? 50? 100? Are our liberties still intact or have we allowed them to be taken 1 little liberty at a time? Hardly noticeable, but step back and take a look from 28,000 ft... What have we allowed our government to do? This past week has convinced me that I have no choice but to vote for John McCain...

Have a great week everyone!

Sunday Song, Proud Mary

Sunny - Hi 110 Lo 86 for Baghdad, Iraq
Sunny - Hi 108 Lo 75 for Qandahar, Afghanistan
Isolated Thunderstorms - Hi 78 Lo 59 for Northern KY, USA

Song of the week: Proud Mary, Tina Turner

No one does a cover the way Tina does. Even though this is a Creedence Clearwater song.... Tina owns it. What a performer.


I haven't posted any photos in a while. Michael and I spent last Sunday being absolutely lazy--- best day ever. We went down to Rabbit Hash, Kentucky which is just a few miles down the road and sits on the Ohio River. From there we drove down to Big Bone Lick, Kentucky and visited a place called Jane's Saddlebag. Rabbit Hash is the real deal... Jane's Saddlebag is trying just a little too hard-- Just a little sidenote... If you have ever visited Thomas Jefferson's home, Monticello-- There you will see some woolly mammoth bones given to President Jefferson by George Rogers Clark-- kinda cool... So laugh at the name... we do... but know that the area is rich in American history.

Rolling down the river.....

Have a great week everyone!

Sunny - Hi 104 Lo 85 for Baghdad, Iraq

Song of the week: Father and Daughter, Paul Simon

Happy Father's Day!

P.S. I will be making some changes to my sidebar. Wonder Woman is on a temporary hiatus and the Angels aren't writing as much...nor is Kimosabe and my Scootertrash Husband has actually posted a couple of things recently, but they are few and far between. The Jedi has more important things to do with his time... like raise a daughter... These are still my favorites and will still be listed on my blogroll, but at some point, I'll be pulling them down to hopefully make this blog load a little faster...

I will also be cleaning up my blogrolls... lots of bloggers have moved on...

In the meantime, I have also have added some music playlists... I plan to add more... my fix of pop, Motown, 70's classic rock, bluegrass and country has yet to be captured... Anyway, currently I have 5--- Before the First Cup of Coffee, Caffeine from the 80's (a slight misnomer- as there are a couple of new songs in the mix), Morning Metal, Where's the Mosh Pit?, and Chicks, Man... Just go to my sidebar and find the Finetune player and click on the green button in the top right corner of it to view all my lists...

There are enough songs currently loaded to last about 12 hours... and YES... I hand picked all the songs. Let me know what you think...

Have a great week everyone!

Song of the week: In Your Eyes, Peter Gabriel

Seventeen years ago today, we promised each other "for better for worse, for richer for poorer, and in sickness and in health for long as both of us shall live..." We have experienced it all... and I can't imagine sharing my life with anyone else.

Happy Anniversary, Michael.

Have a great week everyone!
