We're Going to Casablanca

I love the nightlife. I love to boogie. On the disco.....

I don't know the rest.

What I do know is in a little less than two hours we'll be at Casablanca restaurant in Warrington eating an 8 course meal with our neighbors while watching the bellydancer do her thang.

I'm not as much into the whole belly dancing's a little sensual for my tastes, but the food is fun and so is the atmosphere. AND we have a coupon provided courtesy of our neighbor who by the way invited us to come along tonight.

The Wogger

Have you ever "wogged"?

Wogging is a hybrid form of walking and jogging. I like to think I made it up. Who knows? Maybe I did.

When you're too out of shape to jog, let alone run, you can wog.

You stretch, you jog, and when you can't jog another step, you walk and catch your breath. Once you can breathe and talk again, you pick up the pace and start jogging again. Hence- the wog.

You should try it sometime. You might eventually graduate to jogging and dare I say, running. Now THERE'S something to think about.

Instead of giving billions of dollars to companies that will squander the money on lavish parties and unearned bonuses, use the following plan. You can call it the Patriotic Retirement Plan:

There are about 40 million people over 50 in the work force. - Pay them $1 million apiece severance for early retirement with the following stipulations:

1) They MUST retire. Forty million job openings - Unemployment fixed.

2) They MUST buy a new American CAR. Forty mi llion cars ordered - AutoIndustry fixed.

3) They MUST either buy a house or pay off their mortgage - HousingCrisis fixed.

It can't get any easier than that!

P.S. If more money is needed, have all members in Congress and theirconstituents pay their taxes..."
