Nothing to do w/ dentistry, but some cute photos of my brand new nephew, Henry Phineas Swanson.

Here he is sleeping:

Here he is with Rasput... er, Papa Steve:

And here's a charming knit ensemble!

I like the obvious hand motion, like, "Yo, peeps...H-Phin in da hizzie...ya'll feelin ' me?" Or whatever it is babies think.

"Babies," according to Rev. Grayson Atha, "Are proof that God thinks that Life is Good and wishes for it to continue." (I think someone else may have said that first, but I'm sure they didn't sound as auspicious as THIS minister during baptisms...

Fun Signs

Hello, O Bloggites! Tragically, it has been another busy month. Apparently, everyone who was holding off on a crown until their insurance renewed likes to show up in January, PLUS the weather, and I had (in one week) the excitement of the College BCS Championship, New Hampshire Presidential Primary and my Birthday. This resulted in three straight days of disappointment, as the Ohio State Buckeyes, Barack Obama and The Last Vestiges of my Youth (respectively) all performed a bit below expectations.

Speaking of presidential candidates, please take the time to skip down two posts - I've added new VIDEO of the Hillary Encounter. (Hmm...that sounds like something new at the Museum of Natural History...)

For a truly whimsical look at the candidates, please check out this Best of Craigslist Entry.

Lastly, for your amusement... I have lately become mildly obsessed with, ever since their rendition of "Street Fighter: The Later Years." Lots of funny videos and pictures, and I find it MUCH easier to browse than YouTube.

In the newspaper business we call this "tombstoning:"

Bad Molar? We'll chop it out! Hiiiyahhh!

And people DO sometimes pray.... (Rev. Wallick? You out there?)

Free Bible with Every Cleaning!

Mad props to the guy in the photo who is brilliantly emoting the simutaneous concepts of, "Hallelujah!" and " tooth!" (Any guesses, however, on the source of the stains on his shirt?)
