Freyniac Friday

Posted By on Fri, Sep 1, 2006 at 9:59 AM

Bonjour, mes amis!   ***Check FRIDAY UPDATES below****

9:45 am - Just listening to Republican Lt. Gov Brian Dubie on “The Mark Johnson Show” on WDEV. Can only get it online down here near the Big Lake, and Ol’ Dana didn’t flick the online switch for the 7:05 morning news this morning, so I gave up and went to VPR.

Missed anything the Doobster might have said about wind power policy and his recently announced disagreement with his running-mate, the guy at the top of the ticket - Gov. AntiWind.  Anybody listening?

More coming re: our lovely U.S. House Race!

***UPDATE*** RE: Dubie's wind comments on WDEV. We quickly got this report from some "one_vermonter" person who listened in:

"I listened to bits of it. Mostly it was Dubie doing his trademark rambling routine. But one part you'll be interested in:

"Mark asked the Doobster if Global Warming was a man created problem.

"Dubie dodged and weaved. He even said that rotting trees create some global warming.
And then Mark asked the question again. Doobie's answer, "Yes, I believe that it is a man made problem."

"Somebody should tell his buddy Marty Rainville."


"The Doobster said that he thinks global warming is a man-made phenomonon."

Thanks, blogo-mate! This is fun and gets results, too!

Anybody else catch the 'DEV broadcast?


11:20 am - Congresswoman? Or Congressman?

That is the question and it should be decided sometime before midnight on the evening of November 7, 2006.

Will the winner be the Pisces Fishes?  Or will the Taurus Bull be victorious?

Here's the necessary information:

"Pisces is the twelfth Sign of the Zodiac, and it is also the final Sign in the Zodiacal cycle. Hence, this Sign brings together many of the characteristics of the eleven Signs that have come before it. Pisceans, however, are happiest keeping many of these qualities under wraps. These folks are selfless, spiritual and very focused on their inner journey. They also place great weight on what they are feeling. Yes, feelings define Pisceans, and it's not uncommon for them to feel their own burdens (and joys) as well as those of others. The intuition of the Pisces-born is highly-evolved. Many people associate Pisceans with dreams and secrets, and it's a fair association, since those born under this Sign feel comfortable in an illusory world."

Hey, I'm a Scorpio, and actually read up on astrology during those atheistic Seventies. Was living on the West Bank in Minneapolis. That's the "West Bank" of the Mississippi, which was looking pretty cruddy in 1972. The river, that is.  The West Bank was in the process of being town down for progress-purposes.

I respect astrology for its insights into human personality and the perspective it offers. It's truly ancient human knowledge and awareness. The fundamentals of the four elements etc. and so forth. I've learned some things about me from it, and have considered it an ally.

Does it help predict the future?

If it did, I'd be at the ponies in Saratoga today.

And Taurus the Bull?

"Taurus, the second Sign of the Zodiac, is all about reward. Unlike the Aries love of the game, Taurus loves the rewards of the game. Think physical pleasures and material goods, for those born under this Sign revel in delicious excess. They are also a tactile lot, enjoying a tender, even sensual, touch. Taureans adore comfort and like being surrounded by pleasing, soothing things. Along these lines, they also favor a good meal and a fine wine. The good life in all its guises, whether it's the arts or art of their own making (yes, these folks are artistic as well), is heaven on Earth to the Taurean-born."


Martha the Bull and Fishy Pete?

Or vice-versa?

Answers & More coming.

No cheating!
