“Easter says you can put truth in a grave, but it won’t stay there.” – Clarence W. Hall

Happy Easter to everybody!

Today I’ll be spending time with family, and hopefully you all get a chance to do the same. Later today we’ll come back here to the family compound and try to locate that one egg that the kids still can’t find. The “Easter Bunny” can’t recall where he hid it either because the “Easter Bunny” was up a little too late last night.

In other news this weekend…

–Mike Wallace dies at 93. Almost everybody remembers Wallace from 60 Minutes, but not a lot of people know that in the 1950′s he was a game show host.

–Jesse Jackson marks Easter by claiming Jesus was an occupier.

–The White House is trying to figure out how to commemorate the one year anniversary of Obama’s “gutsy call.”

–Dissecting an enormous ant colony.

–Saturday Night Live mocks Romney as a panderer. It was funny because as SNL was preparing that skit, Obama was shamelessly sucking up to a group of women.

–Bill Gates funds machine that turns toilet waste into drinkable water. Who wants to test it first?

–NBC has purportedly fired the producer (aka “fall guy”) who edited George Zimmerman’s 911 call to make him sound racist. Oh, and they said it was an “honest mistake.” Uh huh…

–Mike Huckabee launches a radio talk show on 200 stations tomorrow. He’ll go head-to-head against Rush Limbaugh — probably not for long though.

    Wow…Happy Easter to "Powerettes?" I like that SignPainterGuy..I guess that's why you're the SignPainterGuy…clever with words, and signs…

    My neighbor put dozens of plastic colored eggs on her front yard, brought out her new two- year- old granddaughter…and the little bunny looked, and turned around and went back in the house. (Ha!) Why should she WORK for the eggs? They are all hers anyway.

    What she needs is some competition..like a brother.

    Marxist Easter lesson.

    Hope you find your lost egg Mr. Powers! At least it's just an egg, not a Corzine "I have NO idea what happened to the money."

    Thanks Joyanna; I`d like to be able to take credit for it, but someone else coined "Powerettes" quite some tome ago.

    Yes, a little competition helps to teach that things not only must, but can be fun in earning ! Today`s comic, "Family Circus" showed the four children hunting Easter eggs. The littlest boy found the most, aided by the spirit of his Grand Dad !

    I hope the last egg is found, especially if "eating it" is in the plans. Today`s "Baby Blues" showed the kids claiming they had found ALL the eggs, but Dad pointed out the one on the porch light ….. that had been there since last year. Apparently, that year over the light had "altered" the flavor of the foil-wrapped candy egg; Dad`s expression changed quickly from "accomplishment" as he popped it into his mouth to "I`m gonna hurl" !!

    Still no sign of the lost egg. Maybe we'll start to smell it by July?

    Be careful with it if you find it in July … or later !

    In first grade, while playing on the playground, I chased a ball into the bushes and English Ivy. I found the ball AND an Easter Egg that still had a hint of color. Just as I was about to show it off, the teacher called us in from recess, so I did what any kid would do who wanted to maximize the "surprise effect", I put it in my pocket ! NO, not my shirt pocket ….

    Once in the class, several of us got into a chase match around the room. I don`t remember why, but I do remember the feeling of hitting the table corner and the sound of eggshell crunching AND I will never forget the awful smell that filled the room !

    Do you know the teacher was mad at me for finding her egg ? She wanted to see how long it would stay hidden under the bush ! Apparently, "That long" did NOT make her happy !

    The audio recording of Zimmerman`s 911 call prior to his shooting Martin was altered so that the audio evidence lied. NBC has reportedly fired someone over altering evidence.

    Locally about 3 years ago, the VHS video surveillance tape showing a convenience store robbery was being held in the prosecutor`s office. Of all the hours of recording, only the 2+ minutes that showed the actual robbery was recorded over …… with a soap opera. To this day, no one has been identified as the person who altered the tape, nor has the real robber been found, since the one convicted of the crime was released after his attorneys won an appeal and he was acquitted.
