Tuesday Post: D.C. Dog Run Boston Bar Band

I'm so tempted to talk politics... but I don't wanna... but it bothers me so much! WHAT THE HELL IS WRONG WITH OUR GOVERNMENT?!?!

Tax crook Tom Daschle (former Senator from South Dakota) withdrew his name from becoming the next Secretary of Health and Human Services. It's still amazing that had he not withdrawn (or wasn't forced to withdraw) he would have been confirmed.

Ethics, for this new administration, had been thrown out the window. Through it all with Geithner and now with Daschle, many Democrats completely stood by their men. "Just a harmless mistake" has been said concerning the tax problems for both men. "Just mistakes." These [insert bad name here] tax cheaters aren't being held to a higher standard than the American citizen. The only reason Daschle isn't going through isn't because he's a crook but because it would be a distraction to the Obama administration. It's all just sick.

Happier stuff: check out this Bernese Mountain Dog...

I love this breed!

Probably can't (very easily) find these puppies in a shelter.

Check out tons o' pics here.

The North Face trail running shoe -- good for use in the Appalachian Mountains ... but seriously, they are rather small compared to the Rocky Mountains ... Sierra Nevada are sweet, too.  Would definitely use 'em in the Alps, that's for sure.  One thing's for sure -- Jerry Garcia or Bob Weir or Phil Lesh or Blaise Compaoré probably never went running in Liberia, Burkina Faso, Ouagadougou, Pyongyang, 평양 직할시 조선민주주의인민공화국 平壤直轄市 朝鮮民主主義人民共和國, Türkmenistan, Kyrgyzstan, Кыргызстан, Киргизия, Uzbekistan, O'zbekiston, Ўзбекистон Республикаси, Tajikistan, Тоҷикистон.  Probably the same with Brent Mydland.  At least that's my gut feeling.  I could be wrong.  I mean, there were a lot of drugs at Grateful Dead shows and the good Lord above, He knows I did my share!

I didn't spend a whole lot of time out on the trail today -- out and back. Good news: I added on to my chopped down time from my previous run. Bad news: I quite possibly shouldn't have run due to a somewhat nagging sore throat that may turn into me being sick again. But more good news: I ran! Since I keep track of my running time on a monthly basic, at the beginning of each month when I start over at 0 minutes and 0 seconds, it feels like a tremendous climb to an endless mountain to be able to top my previous month's running time. Today I started at 0:00 and I have a long way to go to hit the three hour mark... but it's not just three hours that I want to run in February -- I want four. We'll see.

Old Aerosmith is not exactly my bottle of beer. Using this album for running for 23 minutes -- it worked just fine. But overall, I'm not really loving this.

One song on here -- Dream On -- lasted through the decades but other than that, nothing else had a ton of radio success. Now radio success doesn't an album make, I'm just a-sayin'. Steven Tyler's voice sounds so weird on a bunch of these songs, more like Ian Astbury of The Cult than like himself. Mama Kin is interesting in that I never heard it by Aerosmith before, only the cover version by Guns 'N Roses. I think I prefer circa 1989 GnR but it's not bad here. Judging by a few songs here, it's a wonder that Aerosmith ever made it out of Boston bars and into national limelight.

Hey, Zoomma, thanks for stopping by my blog and leaving your comment. Fellow Mets fans always welcome!
I think Many would behave in NY. But, Omar pretty much said at the Perez connference today that the Mets aren't negotiating with him.
I'll stop by and check in here now and then; hope you'll do the same.

I never liked Aerosmith. I'd take The Yardbirds or Rolling Stones every time. On the other hand, Liv Tyler is alright....

one says one number and the other another
but they were set at the same time. Hmmm...
