There is something about Russel Brand that just intrigues me. Tonight I watched “Russel Brand, In New York City” on the TV while catching up on my emails and other computer related tasks. It was the first time that I have seen him as a stand up comedian for more than the 5 minutes or so that the stand ups all get for the short gig on all the late night TV shows that he has been making his rounds on a lot in the past few years.
He was born in the early part of June in 1975, an Englishman and is very well known as an actor, comedian, singer, columnist, author and radio/television presenter who is pumping out the movies left and right lately. I guess that is why he is on all the late night talk shows (as well as many of the daytime talk shows). I’ve seen a couple of his flicks and look forward to seeing the last couple that I haven’t had a chance to catch yet. But as to watching him for a full 42 minutes on The Comedy Channel doing his New York City stand up bit was just a bit over the top for me. He is funny, in an odd and freaky way, but he was far from having me rolling on the floor and/or holding my ribs and stomach in pain from a hard core belly laugh. After I just typed this I realized that there really isn’t that many stand ups that make me really laugh all that much these days anyway, but there are plenty that are hilarious and are always good for a laugh or two, hopefully more. I do enjoy good comedy, not much to laugh about in real life these days.
Is it just me or does Russel Brand bare a resemblance to the 1960′s and 1970 hit singer Tiny Tim, from Laugh-In?
This picture was on my Yahoo homepage a few weeks ago, I’d like to say “when all of this crazy weather started” but there doesn’t seem to be a starting point nor any ending in sight with all of this crazy and extreme weather that is all around us, virtually everywhere every single day.
Anyway, this photo was taken in a trailer park, you can see how the home made wooden stairs to the trailor are perfectly in tack whie the entire trailer, anchors and all were completely ripped up and taken away by he winds. Another oddity is the fact that the flowers in the flower beds beside the old wooden steps are still flowering, not a petal was found missing.
I have to agree with the wife in the fact that some nice enclume potracks would look great in the kitchen and it would free up some valuable cabinet space for all the other utensils that have found their way into our house and kitchen. It is amazing what they have come out with to help make the task of fueling our bodies easier, faster, healthier and safer. Much like today’s man whose garage’s are generally over flowing with tools and gadgets that have been invented and produced for us that are into using all (or as much as) of today’s wonderful mechanical products that we all have become accustomed to having at our disposal.
Anyway, back to the enclume pot racks that are on the wife’s wish list for the up and coming gift giving event on May 8th this year. Once again Mother’s Day is fast approaching us. This leaves me but a short amount of time to produce this gift idea that she really wants and could use this year. Now it can’t be just any pot rack mind you, it has to be a enclume pot rack(s). Apparently her mother, aunts, sisters, cousins, all have some sort of premiere enclume metal product(s) as well as other family members and friends and nothing else will do.
So I have spent the evening looking at the various enclume pot racks on their (Enclume’s) and I can honestly say that these pot racks are top notch and would certainly add a nice touch of class,that along with some practicality to any kitchen, I know this Enclume Large Basket Rack would look pretty darned good in ours. I can get it just in time for Mother’s Day after all! Not having to pay any shipping for this hand wrought 25 pound piece of steel that will be durable and guaranteed with it long-life finish, certainly is just a plus. It’s all good at this point!
With all of the rain that we have all been experiencing this spring it has been difficult getting much of the yard and outside work done that is usually being done this time of the year. There isn’t much space left in the yard that isn’t soaking wet, the ground just not able to take anymore of it in. There have been a few afternoons that the shine has come out, just enough time to get a few things done, my main concern being the gutters. They have not been cleared and cleaned in over 4 years, I’m embarrassed to say, and boy are they clogged up. With all of this rain having the gutters running smooth they way they were designed to do would make such a difference. So that is one of things that I’ve managed to get done. The ladder that I’ve been using managed to stand on dry concrete, which is the only thing that saved my butt, in many ways!

As my mother gets on in years, I find myself at a loss at how to let her know how much I love and appreciate her. That’s why I was really delighted when my wife suggested that we sign her up for a flower delivery for a year service where every month she would get flowers from us. What a great gift idea!
