Waukesha Carnival – Happy New Year

by thoughtfulconservative

Welcome to the first edition of 2009.

Let’s see which posts made the cut for me.

New Year’s is the time of year when we review stories, check on last year’s predictions and predict for the coming year. James Wigderson does all three in three posts. You can find his prediction results, his look back, and his predictions for the coming year all at Wigderson Library & Pub.

On that theme, at Practically Speaking, Kyle Prast shares what she feels were her best posts of the past year.

Cindy Kilkenny is also reflective of the past accomplishments and future directions over at Fairly Conservative.

Huckleberry Dumbell, publisher, editor and writer at Spring City Chronicle, gives his opinion of what the Packers need.

Food is always popular this time of year and we have Scott Feldstein giving a thumbs-up to downtown Waukesha eating places.

We also have MommaBlogger over at Homemaker’s Guide to the Galaxy, talking about something called Iron Cupcake. No, you’ll have to click the link to find out.

As to that web site for the Wisconsin GAB that has the Minneapolis skyline on it, The Asian Badger says that’s not the real problem.

Tom Gehl at Brookfield Basics reviews the book Flowing Streams by Stuart Briscoe, minister at large, at Elmbrook Church.

Alexander at A little off Main gives us Reason # 247 to love mass transit…

Bryon Houlgrave got up early New Years morning (stayed up late?) to give us Good Morning, 2009.

Trisha (Mrs. silent E) over at DaBubbler reposts an old article entitled The Green Conservative which is still well worth reading. Her blog was formerly named “life artist,” so take note.

Speaking of silent E, he gave a report of the Bloggers Christmas Party at silent E speaks. You can see the predictions they made for the coming year and some pictures at Fred’s place.

Finally, Dad29 comments on one of those little-heard economics items, M1 the multiplier. He’s got a chart, too, and says,

The period from ‘the end of 3.2’ to 2008 was kinda ‘sticky-gooey’ economically, come to think of it…

In fact, it looks to me that “the end of 3.2” corresponds to Alan Greenspan becoming head of the Fed. Coincidence?

That’s it for this week. You can always add your choices in the comments. You can also submit a post for next week’s carnival in the comments also, or you can e-mail them to me at thoughtfulconservative [at] yahoo [dot] com.  Past editions can be found on our here.

Warren Sapp officially retires

by thoughtfulconservative

Two of my favorite players retire the same day (a tip of the conservative ball cap to grumps, who as a Packer fan, obviously doesn’t think as highly of Sapp as we Buccaneers fans do).

Warren Sapp’s 13-year NFL career officially ended when his retirement was posted on the Oakland Raiders’ Web site.

Sapp said immediately after last season that he was through playing, but did not file the paper work. The posting on the team’s site was the first official word that the star defensive tackle was done.

In January, the 35-year-old Sapp posted a two-word message on his Web site: “I’M DONE!” He had told teammates and coaches his plans after the season finale against San Diego.

Packer fans are understandably upset at Sapp for what they consider a cheap hit that injured tackle Chad Clifton.

But when the Bucs were in the “Black and Blue” division, I enjoyed watching Favre and Sapp trash talk back and forth.

The game will be duller without these two great players.

Favre retires

by thoughtfulconservative

From FOX Sports

The most storied quarterback career in NFL history is coming to a close.The Green Bay Packers have confirmed a story first reported by that Brett Favre, the NFL’s all-time career passing leader, has decided to retire.


Why now? After perhaps his best seaon in a while? Maybe he doesn’t see the team going farther next year. Tougher schedule. More teams gunning for you. Maybe he’s just tire of getting hit.

Some wonder if something else was involved. Who knows? We’ll have to wait and see what comes out.

I thought something was up when Chris Mottram at The Sporting News spotted a page on the Packers web site announcing Favre’s retirement.

And then I saw an interview the last couple of days with Mike McCarthy (I wish I could remember which Milwaukee station did it. Anyone?) where he gave the oddest answer to the retirement question and again I thought something’s up.

I’m not a Packer fan. But #4 was one of my favorite players and I will miss him.

Just a thought

by thoughtfulconservative

If we’ve had this much hype for the NFC championship game, how much will we have if the Pack go to the Super Bowl?

Apparently, even the criminal element are dedicated fans according to an article in today’s Metro section.
