Me Fail Geography? That's Unpossible

They grow them real smart up there in Laverne and Shirley land

This is Milwaukee County Supervisor Peggy West. Let's all give her a round of applause.

First heard about it from KFYI
Expect this to go viral... I hope

Let's have some fun with demographics

Here's an interesting interactive map from Forbes. It shows graphically the migrating patterns across America, using data from the IRS. (See, they are keeping track of you.)

Here's what the Phoenix area looks like. Black lines are inmigration, red lines are outmigration.


















I'm not surprised to see all the black lines from the northeast and upper midwest. We also get more than our fair share of California refugees. I am surprised to see as many red lines. I suspect our 20-year population boom has slowed or ended. Or there could be some snowbird migration showing, particularly to the north.


Oh, here's the map for State College, PA


















Hmm, mostly red lines. But I can see a black line moving from Pima County, AZ. Wonder what would have caused that??

Go to the website and have some fun with other counties. If you want a real laugh (or cry), be sure to click on Detroit and Los Angeles. Gives new meaning to the concept of hemorrhaging.

I do want to thank Ace Of Spades HQ for alerting me to this.

Perhaps some people took all that talk about ass-kicking literally?

Summer's here, the time is right
For jumping in the pool.

It's triple digits, that means the water is warm enough for me to get in.

Enjoy your summer

Tears for Fears (and a jaunt to Palm Springs)


Welcome to your life
There's no turning back
Even while we sleep
We will find you
Acting on your best behaviour
Turn your back on mother nature
Everybody wants to rule the world



It's my own design
It's my own remorse
Help me to decide
Help me make the most
Of freedom and of pleasure
Nothing ever lasts forever
Everybody wants to rule the world



There's a room where the light won't find you
Holding hands while the walls come tumbling down
When they do I'll be right behind you
So glad we've almost made it
So sad they had to fade it
Everybody wants to rule the world


I can't stand this indecision
Married with a lack of vision
Everybody wants to rule the world
Say that you'll never never never need it
One headline why believe it ?
Everybody wants to rule the world
All for freedom and for pleasure
Nothing ever lasts forever
Everybody wants to rule the world
