Lately I've been under a lot of stress.

My father (the original Fuming Mucker) passed away this past February. Since then I've had to be there for my mother both emotionally and financially. Along the way some of my emotions got rather carried away with one of my friends of the so-called "tender gender". This friend happened to be dating another good friend of mine at the same time.

Long story short, it's still a freaking mess.

I have a lot of hopes and desires for said friend, however, I feel my friendship to the man in this situation needs to be honored. As such, I've done a lot lately to limit my contact with said lady, even though I really don't want to. Let me be frank, if my male friend was not in the equation I would be all about this possible relationship.

That said, I'm perfectly understandable of my male friend's position of not wanting me or the female friend to interact alone with one another. Our track record has proven unreliable. Mainly to do with both of us sharing a lot of affection for one another.

In light of this, I am not happy with some other actions of my male friend. He has said on more than one occasion that he does not think the female friend knows what she wants. He has said on more than one occasion that she needs to have decisions made for her.

Needless to say, I'm not happy with this. His treatment of her has to stop and he needs to realise that his relationship with her is over. She needs to also be more vocal about what she wants. At this time, I have no idea what her intentions are.

Overall, I'd hate to lose two more friends, but at this rate it seems like it would be a lot simpler and pleasant on my life.

Entry Ends.

War Profiteers.

I think there needs to be more attention on a certain group of people that go by the name of "Blackwater".

Here's a link:

Here's another link:

I don't like the second one so much, simply because it's overly dramatic. However, it's still a terrifying concept. What are the roles of a privately owned military? Where do their loyalties truly lie? I don't like the idea of wasting hundreds of millions of United States dollars should be spent on what appears to be a bunch of cowboys.

Isn't there something else we could spend our money on?

The "little" mucker is in the house...

This is actually Fuming Mucker's son, Michael. I have inhereted my dad's live journal... so now I'm free to do what I want with it, bwa ha ha ha!

I know my other livejournal kinda of fell off of the map, but that's not going to happen with this one. Be prepared to see me rant about thieveries, conspiracies and charities just like the last mucker, nothing changes there.

I'm sure you'll all notice my own flare though, so keep in touch.

A cold camping trip...

The souvenir was this fever/cough thing that I promptly shared with my wife. She appreciates me.

Health of the Planet

Get over it? The lying, cheating, bumrushing and warmongering? Well, we already knew that.

There's no metaphor to adequately make one understand that a warmer ocean is a deeper ocean. "We have never seen this in the past," a concerned resident tells the BBC. "We have never seen water coming in this far."

Carbon dioxide makes for an acidic ocean, and that kills coral. But we knew that already, too.

God help us..., because corn can't save us.

It being Friday...

...the standard routine applies: two medium pizzas, pepperoni & sausage and Canadian bacon & pineapple.

Then..., wrestling with the cat and the dog. Let it be said that hand puppets are a superior pet toy (especially puppets with big chomping teeth--and some "google" eyes).

Circles of control, people. I can raise some happy pets.

Tomorrow..., toxic waste pick-up and I get the garage open for the cars.

...maybe some pix, eh?
