Seriously though, BILL..
Turkish commandos patrol a road near the Turkey-Iraq border in the mainly Kurdish southeastern province of Sirnak on February 25. Iraq has slammed Turkey's "unacceptable" cross-border offensive against Kurdish rebels, even as Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan justified the incursion as a legitimate act of self-defence.(AFP/Mustafa Ozer)

Still February: I slide into a curb on the ice the other day, lower control arm is bent, $550 to repair and re-align, plus a new $50 rim.

2. I have three other blogs which you can visit:
Bisikletci Murat Rantings of a soon to be over-the-hill bike racer
M1 Racing Team The elite Masters Racing team which I created and which I manage
WeeBike.com I sell high-end children's bikes here
3. I have sponsors on all of my blogs. Proceeds from them fill an account which will fund my son's education. If you see an ad which interests you, please click it. Adding some nickels to my piggy bank will make you feel good and cost you nothing. Win-win situation. And it sure beats having one of those annoying "Tip Jars". Besides I have a $5,000 boiler to replace this week and no idea where the money for it will come from.
4. The Amerikan Turks Yahoo Group now has 187 members. It's a group that I started a couple of years ago. New members are still attracted to it, but no one is posting any messages lately. Maybe it's time to just end it? Don't make me pull the plug, please. Post something for Christ's sake.
5. Any pretty girls who are interested in my professional opinion of their deep tissue massaging skills, should reach out to me. I do not charge for this service.

I had to go out and buy three more portable heaters to put into the rooms downstairs.. Out of pity for me, the gods helped me find units that were 50% off. Cool. Fortunately we have a propane fueled cast iron fireplace in our master bedroom. Lucky for that I guess. Times like this I wish I had a wood burning fireplace.

More problems for Turkey this
Yeah.. It's about that time..
Myopea reigns supreme.
Hey while we're at it, let's remove women's right to vote and make their court testimony worth 1/4 of a man's. And there's no sense making me suffer with only one wife to do all my cooking and cleaning. Why not let a few of them share the work? Go big or go home. Why only one little move in reverse? Oh yeah, because we're more easily fooled into taking metered doses of sugar coated bullshit. Would you like the red pill or the white pill, Neo?

People, seen through a Turkish national flag, attend a rally to support the ban on headscarves, at the mausoleum of Mustafa Kemal Ataturk, the soldier-statesman who founded the secular Turkish republic, in Ankara February 2, 2008. Secular Turks rallied on Saturday against a plan by the government to allow women students to wear the Muslim headscarf in university, a move they say will usher in a stricter form of Islam in Turkey.
