My most popular Google searches (Top Ten List, Part I) per my Site Meter - - - and another Ugly Foot Contest winner

Did you know Google is now an offical verb? (Check here)

The list:

  1. DanActive and its active ingredient, l. casei defensis, or variations. Put the word 'constipation' after and it comes up first with a Google search.
  2. JIM'S LITTLE BLOG. I think this is done mostly by people who get to me the easy way without bookmarking.
  3. Beverly Hillbillies' truck. Rember, it was a 1922 Olds sedan modified by George Barris.
  4. Shrimp boat for sale. These are just about all from folks along the Gulf Coast. I hope they can read the phone number on the for sale sign.
  5. Kelly Ripa tattoo. [original post, go here] A Google Blog search, this speaks for itself. After this post, you have to click more results to find the original. I didn't dare use a picture of her, I'm sure that's what people are looking for. Google (regular) puts me second in the list if you add the word 'blog,' right ahead of 'Kelley Ripa Naked.'
  6. Jim Bunch. You'd be surprised how many search for him. Mine is always one of my 'Jim Bunch Eats' or the likes posts.

Ugly Foot Contest or "ugly foot contest". The first is doing by Google Blog, the second a straight Google. This was my cute foot photo in the post, 'My Infamous Feet -- Contest Winners.' (link) People sure do find me this way.]
  • Buna, Texas, [original post go here] on the Google Blog search. I don't know why anybody would want to Google that, let alone write a blog. Now, after this post, you have to click more results to find the original. Before today it came up Number 2 in the search, I got beat out by CBS News, with only a small picture of a 110 pound young lady in shorts puting a 230 pound generator into a pickup truck bed. Hurricane Rita related, as was mine. Better was the building contest picture at "Zoned Industrial" but that doesn't Google well. The picture, well here it is.
  • Continued here as Part II.

      Did you miss something tempting?

      The trouble with resisting temptation is it may never come your way again. [Korman's Law, author unknown]
      I missed out on free love, it never came my way in the beginning.
      What did you miss out on that is gone now?

      What Goes Around Might Not Come Around Much Longer Britain debates extradition of Enron bankers

      Will England Parliament change its mind? They just might suspend their Extradition Act, a part of the new Terrorist Act. The British action today is probably too late to prevent the extradition of the so-called Natwest Three, allegedly connected with our famous Enron tumble to the tune of $7.3M.

      It was hastily passed just like our (U.S.) Patriot Act. Lots of human rights and liberties knocked out cold in both places. The U.S. did not reciprocate as we agreed by passing a similar Extradition Act here. [see my previous July 6 post on topic]

      Thank goodness and our Congress for not passing that one. But, we still want England to honor their reciprocation agreement and we are using it to get these three bankers back to the U.S. pronto. We will see.

      How badly will our Supreme Court whittle away from the Patriot Act remains questionable too, since it is now packed with Bush appointees.

      From the Houston Chronicle A.P. Article:
      "Several opposition Conservative Party lawmakers joined the criticism, and lawmakers voted to adjourn the Commons early as a symbolic protest against the extradition. That followed a 218-116 vote Tuesday in favor of suspending the Extradition Act in the House of Lords, the upper house.
      "The three bankers have said they would be willing to face a court in Britain, where the alleged offenses were carried out."

      A last caveat: This blog is not political. Please, any political sounding remarks I would like posted at this same article on my more political blog, JIM'S LITTLE BLOG (THIS). Thanks.

      Just in case you needed one, a new (to me) calculator for you

      One gallon of gasoline has the energy of
      77.948 megatons of TNT

      Ever want to figure out the amount of energy in your gob of matter, say a gallon of 87 octane gasahol were completely converted to energy?. Of course you want it measured in joules. Albert Einstein has given us a formula.

      Easy, it is E=mc².

      ** Example, one gallon of gasoline has the energy of

      77.948 megatons of TNT, what the calculator says!

      If all it's energy could only be obtained. This calculation is based upon the old saying, a pint's a pound, the world round. Thus the gallon of gasoline would weigh eight pounds, or close enough.

      Incidently, a gallon of water has the same potential, how to release all this energy is the question/problem. We need Edison for that.

      And that is easy with this new (to me) calculator, just enter your mass number and have at.

      Bookmark it and you can always have it. I really don't need to do this anymore, so at first I didn't even try it out.

      Engineered hormone in milk may be linked to twinning

      The Union of Concerned Scientists
      sends me things.

      Would you like to be on their mailing list? This came in an e-mail from them:

      "1. Engineered hormone in milk may be linked to twinning

      A recent study found that women who consumed dairy products were five times more likely to give birth to twins than vegan women.

      The study suggested that the use of engineered bovine growth hormone/bovine somatotropin (BGH/BST) to boost milk production in dairy cows may be related to the higher level of twinning.

      BGH is known to increase twinning in dairy cows. In addition, the rate of human twinning is twice as high in the United States, where BGH is used, as in Britain, where BGH is banned.

      BGH affects twinning rate by increasing insulin-like growth factor (IGF), a protein produced in the milk of both animals and humans, that promotes ovulation and may help early-stage embryos survive.

      A separate study found that levels of IGF were 13 percent lower in vegan women than in women who consumed dairy products.

      Read a press release about the study, which was published in The Journal of Reproductive Medicine."

      Now this sounds like Texas had it first, see my Texas Holstein blog of July 1, 2006. [Note: Google says, "Results 1 - 10 of about 1,840,000 for texas holsteins (0.05 seconds), that my blogs are Nos. 1, 2, and 3. I've got to put a disclaimer there, suppose some poor school kid tries to do a research paper and quotes me.]

      Scorpions -- Scary?

      3. And out of the smoke locusts came down upon the earth and were given power like that of scorpions of the earth.
      4. They were told not to harm the grass of the earth or any plant or tree, but only those people who did not have the seal of God on their foreheads.
      5. They were not given power to kill them, but only to torture them for five months. And the agony they suffered was like that of the sting of a scorpion when it strikes a man.
      6. During those days men will seek death, but will not find it; they will long to die, but death will elude them. (Revelation 9, Verses 3 - 6)

      This week's devotion by Mike Davis, First Baptist Church, Conroe talks about scorpions (Link to Weekly Devotion). Do they exist here around Conroe? We've never run across any, I though they were a West Texas varmint [2 : a contemptible person :
      In the Bible, the scorpion's sting is an instrument of divine retribution. When the fifth trumpet of Revelation sounds, locusts with the tails of scorpions come out of the bottomless pit to sting those people who do not have the seal of God upon their foreheads. They are allowed to punish humankind for five terrible months
      Rev 9:3-10).

      Verses 7 - 10 Continue:
      7. The locusts looked like horses prepared for battle. On their heads they wore something like crowns of gold, and their faces resembled human faces. 8. Their hair was like women's hair, and their teeth were like lions' teeth. 9. They had breastplates like breastplates of iron, and the sound of their wings was like the thundering of many horses and chariots rushing into battle. 10. They had tails and stings like scorpions, and in their tails they had power to torment people for five months.
