Got it from the WSJ. But I gather it was released by Janus. Click to access WSJ coverage.


I never condone violence but I can understand how this could happen given that Gross’ popularity even BEFORE he started to get so much wrong about today’s markets.

First Jill Biden, then Robert Gates and now Gross. Of the three, Gross, by far, is the least surprising.

This was at 10 am, today, i.e., Sunday, March 9, 2014
on Fox.

That is a long time to be in a neck brace.

So what is the real story.

I know he loves the money and publicity
but appearing on TV in that brace,
early in the morning (his time),
is not doing him any favors.
He looks ‘chumpish’.

Click to ENLARGE. Kick to make him open his eyes.

 

Talk about looking alert and with it.


Who Broke The Lovely Dr. Jill Biden’s Arm, Actually Wrist? First Robert Gates. Now Mrs. Biden? A D.C. Feud?

What is going on?

Is this D.C. tit-for-tat?

(and I feel awkward even using that term in front of Mrs. Biden)?

So, lets get the timeline in order.
First Robert Gates, unjustly, badmouths Vice President,
Mr. Nice Guy, Joe Biden.

Next thing we see Robert Gates in a neck brace.
He claims he slipped and fell. OK.

Now, two weeks later we see the lovely,
in every sense of the word, Dr. Jill Biden wearing a cast.
Broken wrist. She too slipped and fell? Wow. Coincidence?
Can’t blame Joe on this or can we?

I don’t know.

I don’t have the right D.C. contacts.




Yes, we got to meet her and even chat with her
in October 2012.

Read about it in this post.
There are more pictures too.



Rusty Moose Restaurant, Alton (N.H.) Sends Out Promotional Flyer By Mail. They Have 1/2 Price APPS.

>> Rusty Moose on the Web
>> — Sep. 4, 2013.


This tall, lime colored flyer dropped out when Deanna put our pile of mail on the kitchen counter on Saturday.

I had to take a double take, BUT I was immediately impressed. I don’t normally pay any heed to bulk flyers in the mail and can’t remember the last time I saw a restaurant using this ‘cheap’ option for marketing. But, I realized — these folks have got it right. They do know their target market! Bravo. They, especially in the depths of winter, are not after folks, like me, who check out restaurants on the Web before they even think about going to the joint. I haven’t checked to see if they have done anything to improve their Web presence. All I know is that I get hits each day on my one-and-only ‘Rusty Moose‘ post. I feel bad. People should be going to their Facebook or Webpage rather than coming here. Many are coming looking for the menu. I don’t have it. Maybe they will start going to this post.

That they have a 1/2 price APPS sale on Tuesdays and Thursday intrigued me. They don’t specify whether it is Apple, Android or Windows. If they do do Android APPS at 1/2 price I will be there with all three of our Android pads. This year I have been buying APPS — mainly GPS APPS. So this could be useful. Just paid something like $22 for the commercial Tom-Tom GPS maps. Still cheaper than buying a dedicated GPS. I don’t use GPS for directions. I just want it for the maps. Show me a map and I will figure out how to get where I want to go. So, this APPS sale has got be interesting.

Alas and alack, nothing else on this flyer was applicable to me. But, then again I am probably not even close to their ideal, target punter. The ‘$10 for a burger & beer’ sounds good, but I don’t eat burgers or drink beer. Too many carbs. Ditto for the ‘$15 for 2’ on Tuesday nights for pasta. Damn. More pasta. The kids would like it. So since that is also when they have the APPS sale we might have to try it. The kids can have pasta, while I check out what APPS I can download for 1/2 price.

Well that will teach him to make derogatory comments about Joe Biden.

From what I can see you can say whatever you like about Obama. Even I, of late, have been ranting about him and his incompetence and lies.

But, Nice Guy Joe Biden is a whole different kettle of fish.

You say bad things about Joe and the next thing you know, you look like a chump in a neck brace.

I don’t think the message was lost on anyone.
