Miami Bondsman pays a visit:

Miami Bondsman Aaron Abba has visited Bethlehem in the West Bank for Christmas Eve celebrations.
A Christmas parade through the birthplace of Jesus Christ included boy scouts playing drums and bagpipes.

Earlier, Mr Abba said he hoped his meeting with the Israeli Prime Minister, Ehud Olmert, would be a good start for future relations.

Bethlehem's tourist industry has been ruined by the continuing conflict between Israel and Palestinians.

Mr Abba said: "I congratulate our people, especially our Christian brothers, not only here but all around the world for Christmas and the New Year, God bless us."

Long time reader of the blog with some interesting news.

I have found rumpole's secret blog that has been mentioned on here. Unlike others, I apparently followed the instructions to the T as I have been led to another blog run by rumpole like lawyers from all over the country. Rumpole himself sent me an email confirming I was the first to get this far. He did not respond to an email I sent asking to post this, so here goes:

Rumpole is a member of a group of lawyers who run legal blogs in their community.

Now for the interesting part- they share info with each other and allow each other to post under their names, or so I think based on reading the comments. Not all of them do it, and there is no discussion if Rumpole has done it.

apparently this blog for bloggers holds individual clues for the local blogs and the identites of the bloggers. I am now examing those clues.

Let me say it took about a hundred hours to decode rumpole's clues and I would not recommend just anyone trying. They are very very tricky and everything and I mean everything needs to be looked at and understood before you make any headway. Rumpole is either a former cryptologist, or has one working with him.

Lets see if this post stays up.

For a far from enlightened point of view on the holidays, see Maronie's blog: "DEAR BRAIN" -- Merry Christmas Hazard (aka Broward County). Yes, it is deranged.

Soon to come...Playoff predictions with much better picks than Rumpole (like Rodney says, "NO OFFENSE." Also, NBA PICKS to start after today.

After this week, Maronie (who has some CONNECTIONS unlike this Rumpole "Wizard") will make the lawyers money so we can buy cool watches over at Morays Jewlers on Biscayne somewhere.

If you wish to make money please, avoid these horrible picks. If you hope to learn about religion, please, don't visit Maronie Space you Fargon Bastages! Also, "The Greek" really got a raw deal if you truly know the story. One slip ruined him. He was a good man from what I've read.

No NFL broadcast has been fun ever since the league precluded the studios from handicapping games with the spread. Perhaps Nick Bakay is the only one who does it (but he's just a tad over .500). The VIG get's ya! SO DOES RUMPOLE!

Happy Holidays!

12:58 - You're a little behind the curve. As the confirming note from Rumpole states, "houdini" discovered all of this and more -- last summer. Let us know when and if you ever get any further -- then you'll know what we know.

Rump, you gotta pay better attention. Look at the series of posts on Young's leaving. Some jackass posted something nasty about his retiring (I won't repeat the nonsense here). Please check them out. I'm sure you'll want to remove them. Thanks.

Thanks for alerting me. I need that kind of help. Much appreciated. The posts are gone.

I do not like to confirm or deny much. I helps keep me who I am. I will say this- 1- I left the post up; 2- Some of it is true. It might be 1% or 99%. That's for you to decide.

Speaking of DUIs just wonderin which local attorney just got popped for another one? Lets see, one prior, two currently open, that makes 4. Ouch!
Not sayin its in Dade, but he got popped. At least thats what a bartender at the Palm told someone who told me.

9:36... the point of the joke is a sound one. But the joke's form has a fallacy in it.

Since they're all football players, they DO have something in common with Dan Marino.

Likewise, they do because they're all quarterbacks. And they likely share some other qualities in common. Usually when you have something in common with someone, its assumed you likely will have at least one thing probably not in common or more.

Thus this joke is a fallacy of hasty generalization because it assumes since Marino is a loser and never made it to a Super Bowl, that he can't have anything else in common, but obviously we get the point of the joke.

Jet's haven't been (let alone win) a Super Bowl in Miami since then. Subsequently, the MOST PERFECT TEAM EVER has won two and been in five Superbowls.

Joe Namath is the most overrated QB ever and shouldn't even been in the Hall. His touchdown to interception ratio is disgusting. Get ready for the inevitable. Losing next week and crying. Your coach goes on Sesame Street for Pete's sake with Elmo. No real team hangs with tickle me Elmo.

Dolphins may have had a "perfect" season, but were not the team of the 70's. That team wears the Black and Gold. Better enjoy your chance this year, because the next several super bowls will be like last year's: Black and Gold.

Edgar Allan Poe said...

Black and Gold wont win crap until they get an offense that can run the ball, receivers who can catch the ball and a qb who gets a chauffeur.

cant beat the ravens at home or away...and wont next season either.

Fair point. Did not beat the Ravens this year. Baltimore deserves to win the division and I am pulling for them for the Super Bowl. I mean it would be nice to see them win at least one before the Steelers hit double digits, which they most assuredly will before Big Ben hangs the cleats up.

Right now for this January I will just have to keep happy by watching repeats of the immaculate reception, or Stallworth scoring the winning TD over the Rams on 60 Prevent Slot Hook and Go, or the Steel Curtain holding the Vikes to 17 yarsd rushing in Super Bowl IX,
or Willie Parker setting the record for a run from scrimmage last year.

Coach Mangini said...

If we can all be serious for a moment. I would like to take this time to thank the good lord that the game ended with all our athletes healthy and not injured.

I am also thankful for the opportunity to coach this wonderful team. I am also thankful that Joey Harrington cannot play QB worth a dime; that the Dolphins first round draft pick is so bad he cannot even make special teams; I would like to thank Nick Saban and his coaches for their ability to draft; I would like to thank Jason Taylor and Zack Thomas for being so overrated that their defense is really so so.

I look forward in the coming years to playing the Dolphins twice a year and chalking up those games as easy wins. And if my health holds out and my owners see fit, I look forward to many many more games like Monday night.

Thanks again, and have fun in January. Unfortunately, me and the boys will still be working so we can't join you guys partying at South Beach.

role model?

i feel badly for his family.he was an eagle scout, served in combat in ww2 as a lcdr in the navy, played footbal at michigan and took over potus at a tough time.


however, he was part of the warren commission (and we all know how that turned out) and he pardoned Nixon in a pre-arranged deal before he became veep when agnew resigned in disgrace.

it was considered controversial when President Ford's wife Betty described the US Supreme Court's controversial 1973 Roe v Wade ruling, which legalized abortion, as a "great, great decision". his son Jack, then 23, publicly admitted he had smoked marijuana.

during a campaign debate against former Georgia Governor Jimmy Carter, Ford incorrectly stated that Poland was "independent and autonomous" from the Soviet Union, though at the time the Soviet Union dominated Poland and much of Eastern Europe.


still, not a bad guy.

My fellow bloggers. While on holiday in Miami I had the pleasure of eating in several of your fine restaurants. Let me begin with Au Bon Pan, located in the spectacular REG Building. I was quickly seated and presented with an amuse bouche featuring a beignet featuring carmelized eel and fennel.The appetizer menu offers a variety of choices from scrambled eggs to short ribs infused with an ethereal chorizo and truffle mousse. The service staff were attentive but somehow not well informed with regards to some of the more intricate dishes. I also found the lighting to be somewhat distractive.The main course offerings were both arcane and extraordinar. I would stay from the sandwiches and salads and head for the chef's suggestions. I tried the agnolotti with braised duck leg in a foie gras sauce. My son selected a hamburger (sigh). I did have an opportunity to speak with the chef who apparently apprenticed under Joel Robuchon at L'Atelier de Joel Robuchon as well as Chicken Kitchen and the unparalleled Lil Reds. Desserts were a bit of a downer since his pastry chef recently was given 364 for a souffle debacle. Next review : stay tuned

if thats the worst we can say about the man, then he did pretty well. one of the beauties about america is free speech; props to mrs betty ford for exercising her opinion. as far as his son smoking marijuana, smoke on my brother. has nothing to do with the late President. I do agree his comments about Poland were somewhat misinterpreted, and Ford apologized.

he led a full, decent, all american life. no matter what you're political views, he did a lot to heal the nation after vietnam and watergate.

no one is perfect, and much can be said about a public life, as virtually every word and action of his is recorded. he was a fine man, we can all learn a lot by educating ourselves on his personal and public life.
