    I didn’t see EBL on there at all despite her all-out effort.  Was she disqualified?  Did she try to hack Bob’s site?

     EBL keeps not sending me her links, and they don’t show up on the weekly WordPress dump. As I said in last week’s FMJRA, “They that tooteth not their own horns, the same shall not be tooted.”

     Yeah, I remember that when she asked the first time, and figured she had certainly corrected that defect.  Oh, well, when we ASS-U-ME . . .

    Just because the Redcoats didn’t understand the Minutemen’s tactics at Concord and Lexington doesn’t take away the glory of their victory.

     One could be charitable and speculate that  she was in training on Friday for the Main Event on Saint Paddy’s Day. Or not.
