World's Oldest Santa Figurine Believed Found
By Jennifer Viegas
Mon Dec 14, 2009 09:15 AM ET

Archaeologists working in Akron, Ohio, claim to have found the world's oldest three-dimensional representation of Santa Claus.
Known as the "Blue Santa," the object was made circa 1884 by The American Marble & Toy Manufacturing Company, which burned to the ground in 1904. The figurine is 2.5 inches tall.

Project leader Brian Graham said, "It's a wishing Santa. You hold it in your hand and wish for the present you want for Christmas."

Razor Claw RANT for the Vi-Spammers ~

Kayelle, thanks for the heads' up... no, I don't mean that kind of 'head'... whatever...
Yeah, those spammers seem to think everyone in the universe is interested in this particular drug. The sneaky ads for Vi***agra get by my email spam filter. I always report them as SPAM!!! And they are disgusting.
Come on, get a life... Vi-Spammers... and not as in 'come' as the word is used in erotic romance novels... not all of us give one good damn about this kind of in-your-face pornography (no, I don't want it in the face). Because that's what it is. Legalized ad pornography.
Anyone who truly wants to use this drug can find it by doing an internet search or by going to their doctor. You know, with some kind of discretion involved.
Personally, I wish Mr. Dole had never discussed his dick deficiency in a national TV ad, lo those many years ago.

Yes, gentleman, oh gee, this kind of ad pornography is just so sexy I can't stand it... yeah, give me more... more... MAY MY SARCASM SLICE IT OFF ~ ONLY AFTER THE USE OF SAID ABOVE DRUG, OF COURSE!!!


Now ~ FIRST! just for the big cool cats ~

Happy Courtship on another Earth

X-Serial Flash in Two Hundred ~ Sylva and Zeke’s story continues...

Part 354 ~

Sylva reached her breaking point. Her panic moved out of the way, replaced by a tide of anger that surfaced as if pulled by the new moon. Mentally, she shouted, “Okay, if you’re so smart, where the hell am I?” Her rage growing, she waited. “Just as I thought. You don’t know where I am. You want me to tell you. Well, screw you! Screw you!” Sylva calmed herself a bit, focusing on ‘wherever’ she was. Performing a gradual spin, she looked up and down, as well. Now, there were no more mountains. Only an eerie dark gray floating mist.

Zeke squeezed his eyes with some relief and a great mountain of gratitude. At least, his precious Sylva had warmed up, her skin temperature feeling closer to normal. Still, she remained lost to him, her body unmoving. As the thought popped inside his head, Zeke did it, he concentrated on joining his mind with his wife’s consciousness. Nothing seemed to happen until he saw a grayish substance, as if clouds of heavy smoke combined with a dense fog. “Sylva.” He yelled her name over and over in his mind. Hoping. Wishing for anything. “Sylva, where are you? I need you!”
