Party On


While we still wander in the wilderness, mi casa es su casa.
Craig will advise when crawfordslist.com is ready for a housewarming party.

Feel free to prowl through the rooms, rearrange the furniture to your liking and plump the pillows.

Time to feed the pooches...Science Diet canned beef for the Lab and a fried hamburger patty for the Jack Russell terrier.

i kinda like Porpoise under Cool Colors

Dexter said...

I vote for Forest Green or Purple Crush.

Dexter said...

Vicksburg Teal is very nice, also.

julia said...

Hi kids! *waves*

Forest Green or Tickle.

Jamie said...

Am I the only one who likes the simplicity of Masala, but with a blue or green banner unless you can get something distinctive totally you.

Jamie said...

I take everything above back. The Stevenson is beautiful.

Sheila said...

Jamie and Craig,

I like Stevenson too. Yummy!

I'm going to bed. Have a great night everyone!

rebellious renee said...

I like Stevenson or Masala...

white lettering on a colored background might be pretty for a short while, but I think would be tiring on the eyes....

Craig: Check this link out for fonts available for your blog that aren't available ANYWHERE ELSE. These fonts are by "font legend" Chank Diesel. He has been designing fonts for the IT Community for 20 years. Many of the fonts are free for download and they are unbelievable:

here's Frank Rich for today, in case anyone missed it:

colorado bob said...

Blue Crush

Classy ...... has a "newsy " look

Sublet .......another good Professional look

tiptoe said...

Craig, for us really old folks, BLACK FONT on WHITE is the best. Pale Palettes, while initially nice, would be hard to read. Bob, blue crush is good.

So the cost of the that blog is about the same as owning your own domain name. Hummm, and it appears to give your own domain name by the URL. I'm thinking of developing a web something - page - site for work, and certainly would want to distance it from my blog here. So this is a thought.

Mad, I slept off and on again today. Like you, I'll probably be up for days.

colorado bob said...

In the fonts ... Go Font Yourself good, ....it's hand writing The Page would have the look of someone at the kitchen counter writing out ''"Crawford's List " on the Tickle template which is papery looking almost a report's note book look .

I like the idea of a reporter's notebook .

tiptoe said...

sixapart is a big production. Who knew?
Thanks Craig!

colorado bob said...

The Simpsons ..very funny …. Best line :
The Professor : “I thought I heard the sound of a woman measuring .”

Dexter said...

c-bob...Bart sure has issues with Skinner! Taunting him, prodding him with a giant peanut on the end of a stick...making Skinner eat garbage...bad Bart! The poor old roller coaster! Finished...even Marge could not save it.

colorado bob said...

So, I get this new software today that generates shapes and animates them ...I put it on U Tube as a test . ..Then I take to the movie studio and start clicking through the 48 different effects on in the movie program and if I put it out as movie with almost every effect laid over it ...It'd be the most interesting thing I ever make ....... Here's Donuts, is there anything they can't do ?

tiptoe said...

c-bob, you're really getting into this, aren't ya?

That's a very busy page, but not necessarily in a bad way.

Sheila said...

Morning everyone.

Clinton gettin DOWN

I thought if some hadn't seen Clinton throw down on Fox, you might want to. MSNBC's Mike Taibbi has done a nice job on it.

Clinton did a nice job too. It's about time someone came to Clinton's defense, even if it was Clinton.....

blueINdallas said...

Hey jamie - Thanks for the e-mail.

Craig - As a fellow Magoo-ite, the Beckett & Folio seem a little difficult to read. I don't quite need anything in braille yet, but please pick something that is kind to our eyes.

Anybody else think Imus & Mr. Newsweek are reading the Clinton/Wal-less interview all wrong?

I didn't think there was anything wrong with Clinton calling it like it was; a Fox lemming doing what he was told.

Ignoring it, playing the part of the politician, would only have made Clinton seem cold & uncaring. Emotion is not unprofessional, it is human. We are not Borg yet.

Sheila said...

Look Blue,

I'm as usual. disgusted with Imus and Company. I hate him and I don't take the word hate lightly.

His MO for the last 20 years is to say, "I like the Guy Personally BUT....." And then tear the person another !@#$%$. He's a smear monger and this morning was nothing more than another example of right wing prejudice gone wild again.
The men in his employ are even worse than IMUS. Thats what makes him so bad. He even stated that he is liberal on many issues.....BS.

He's liberal in his right wing opinions and that is all. If he had an ounce of fairness, this moderate voter (me) would not be commenting.

WHEW! Ok Off the platform for this morning.

Jamie said...

Morning all. Did you leave me any coffee or do I have to punish you once the eyes are open?

CBob, Did you get your clock?

Jamie said...

Interesting column on the problems of the mentally ill in jails Poynter

colorado bob said...

Jamie .....Sorry that was a dead link It glowed, but it didn't go ....Up late making the donut spectacular

Pogo said...

Mornin' all, so Craig's et up by beta blogger? Hope things get back to blogger's normal screwed up state soon. There's a little ditty out there in medialand about the NIE that has to have Bushco cringing - it verifies what those of us foulmouthed liberal bloggers have been saying, that we are at greater threat from a stronger bunch of islamic radicals than we were before we set up Iraq as a recruiting tool and have given afghanistan the go ahead to up opium production and house and protect the Taliban and al quaeda (complete with fearless leader UBL). I just hope the Dems take this and run with it for the midterms - best I can tell, the idiots are trying to run on the economy in the face of falling gasoline prices and a housing buyer's market. (Hmm, let's see"deficit" or "terrorist" - which one has a better ring? Sorry boys, it's the T word - embrace it and run on it). By the way, isn't this stuff supposed to be secret?

Oh, and jamie, thanksfo rletting us sleep on your couch.

Pogo said...

An open letter to Howard Dean(please feel free to add your own suggestions)

OK, Howie, listen up. You have two issues to run on this fall - don't screw this up. The first is the NIE report from April saying that we're less secure and that terror is at a higher level than it was before 9/11. Please at least mention this. In fact, have every dem running for a seat make it a centerpiece of their campaign. The second is that the Repugs can't do shit when they have the opportunity. Congress has fiddled with stupid crap like Terry Schiavo and keeping the french from eating our horses, but can't seem to address the issues people who vote but don't hod office care about - like passing budgets or bills on immigration and border security, or lobbying reform or just about anything else that might actually have some effect on the issues that threaten us most. You might also point out that one of the major reasons nothing happens in Washington anymore is that the Repugs who have half a brain are stalling the legislative process by joining with Democrats (remember the group of 14?) or by outright defying the White House torture merchantsand keeeping anything other than torture of prisoners from being discussed and acted upon. It appears you are considering trying to make the economy the centerpiece of the fall congressional elections. How should I put this? DON'T DO THAT. Most people's wages have not gone up in the 6 years Bushco has had to f*ck up this country, and the rich have gotten much richer in that time period, but gas prices are falling along with housing prices and mortgage interest rates, so if the vote their pocketbooks, voters may just be happier than you seem to think. I know you're very smart and all, but you didn't win your last election, and it would be nice to reverse the trend that you were a part of and get something that looks like balance back into Washington. Hope this helps.
Sincerely, Pogo

P.S. If you read this at jamie's place, here's an article about the do nothing congress. Feel free to use it.

Congress dont do sh*t

Jamie said...

Cbob

Here's the Clock on the web.

Enjoy the toy everyone.

Jamie said...

WEll try this again

Clock

Pogo said...

Craig,
For what it's worth,
Masala or Sunburned look pretty good. The Green one is very soooooothing, but I'm not crazy about it, and I don't like the dark backgrounds - too goth.

colorado bob said...

Pogo ...Roger that ..... Bush went to Iraq with a 5 gal. gas can, and a book of matches. He poured the gas all over the country and started lighting matches .Then he stood in the middle of the flames and repeated. " Stay the Course..Stay the Course."

colorado bob said...

Jamie I can get to the page that tells about the clocks but I can't get any of the links there to open .... just blank pages with the address in the window. My donut movie is up. I used Homer Simpson as a tag . So when it came up the first time there are all the Simpson clips too .... 196,732 of them .

Jamie said...

CBob,

It must be something on your end. I go to the page and it works perfectly. Very Weird.

Has anyone else tried the clock?

Jamie said...

Just so you know what it is supposed to do: When you move your cursor everything starts flying around. When you leave it still, the date spins around the outside. The clock tells the time for your area, and the hands move.

colorado bob said...

He seems to be behind Yahoo ...I'm not Yahoo ...

I did get to some of the links at the bottom of the page and this one is pretty cool :

click here

And it seems to be easy enough for us to do ....sent you an email with instructions.

Pogo said...

jamie,
That's what the clock did when I clicked on it - I thought it was pretty cool.

Pogo said...

jamie, did you ever get a list of predictions for Rove's October surprise, or did it die of disinterest? BTW, I'm predicting a blogger meltdown today. It's acting real funny.

rebellious renee said...

Booger?....in a meltdown....
ooooohhhhh nooooooo....
say it ain't sooooooo....

Just dropping in to say Hi....
mucho busy for the next few days...

Chinese politicians really have the hang of this whole capitalism/greed/graft thing

ps - Good news: Some of the travel restrictions have been lifted, but we still have to buy the overpriced water at the airport - none of the cheap stuff from home.

Hi Bob

Oddly enough I'm in the same boat as you. When I wrote the clock page I was running OS-9 and I was able to arrange for a nice Java environment in several of my browsers. Since I have moved to OS-X I can't make anything work. If you figure out a way to see them I'd appreciate hearing about it and I'd give you credit for the explanation on the clocks page. Downloading and installing the Java module doesn't seem to help -- apparently there are "dialects" of Java and they are mutually incomprehensible, or something.

Goodness I may have put you on the road to fame at Rutgers. Do you suppose they will give you an honorary doctorate if you figure it out?

I can see it now. Cap and gown over jeans and cowboy boots.

It is too quiet here today. Here is an interesting item to liven it up. Class Action Status was given to the landmark "Light Cigarette" lawsuit:

Looks like the RJ Reynolds Stock may be a "sell" on E*Trade today....

Jamie said...

One section of the Department of Defense is refusing to submit a budget. Apparently, Rumsfield has authorized a $25 Billon shortfall (Can't let the American public know how much this is really costing).

Apparently this is the first time there has been an outright refusal to submit a requested budget.

It is slow. We're missing PoP, Sheila, Renee, Vanilla Birdies, 9/11 ... who else?

Pogo said...

Here's the news from Crawfordslist- it's back.

So, "the devil himself" would be Bush according to Chavez & others

Sadly, so many people, on all sides, buy into this extreme language without giving it a second thought.


tlr - I don't think you're gonna get any static on the tobbacy today, as the smokers seem to be otherwise engaged.

blueINdallas said...

Dems had better figure out how to get out the vote, because the other side is so easy to incite.

Maybe they should stir up the immigration debate right before the election to ensure those new registrants show up at the polls.

horsedooty said...

Jamie,

thanks for the hosting duties again.

yo soy Horsedooty!

Dexter said...

pretty neat-o...the clock !

Here's another cool timepiece that I have used for several years now

Dexter said...

I was walkng the dogs a short while ago in a section of the park that I usually don't get to. I found a Buckeye tree and tried to find a few buckeyes for my daughter, a grad of The Ohio State University. Someone had beat me to it! The ground was covered with the outer shells...empty of the nuts. I did manage to find five buckeyes...that's all. I guess I shouldn't be surprised as the OSU Buckeyes are #1 in the land of college football and I am in Ohio. The football fans make necklaces of buckeyes around here. I live where Indiana, Michigan, and Ohio all come together. I went to Indiana University and I root for the Michigan Wolverines of Ann Arbor. They're good at football this year, too. During the televised Wolverines game Saturday, they showed a few scenes in and outside of my fave deli in the world, Zingermans. Great...make that fantastic sandwiches and even the broth and matzoh balls are special.

Dexter said...

of course! After YEARS of flawless operation, now the clock I linked for yas won't load !! That's life!

Jamie said...

Dexter

You had to link that picture!!! I love Matzo Ball soup and Kishka and all sorts of other stuff I shouldn't be eating. :-)

Jamie said...

Time to go home folks. Old Crawfords List is back up for the time being.

Craig will let us know when to move to the New Place

In the meantime, if the old place crashes again, just bang on the door.

It's been nice having the company

Colleen said...

Jamie, you have been a most delightful host...can't thank you enough!

{{{hug}}}

Dexter said...

Thanks for the welcome mat! I'll take out the trash on my way out...coffee grounds, tea bags, stale crullers and croissants, and a big old jar of mustard...OOPS! sorry, Mad!!
