UFO Welcome Center Erected in Fairfield, CT

little green alien and UFOMarch 2015

In an attempt to bolster tourism and a flagging economy, the tiny New England state of Connecticut has opened its arms to extraterrestrial aliens. The Nicola Tesla UFO Welcome Center was unveiled this weekend in Fairfield, CT. The new 5 acre rest stop features a semiconductor charging station, ovoid parking spaces, an electronic-disruption-free zone, 8 landing pads, and a dozen plasma refueling stations. This state of the art facility also offers a variety of fast food fare including KFC, Subway and a Cracker Barrel.

Town folk in the abutting neighborhoods came out in force to protest the Drive thru KFCUFOs and the aliens inside them. Carrying posters declaring, “This is Our Planet, Not Yours”. Spokesperson, Ray Walston, said,”Our microwave ovens are on the fritz, our pets are levitating and our lawns have large burnt patches of interlocking circles.”

When asked to comment on the neighbors concerns, Governor Malloy poo pooed what he called “hysterics” and donned a shiny, aluminum foil hat to cut the ribbon.

Happy Chinese New Year! The Year of the Sheep/Ram/Goat

year of the sheepAccording to Chinese Astrology,tomorrow ushers in The Year of the Sheep (aka The Year of the Goat or The Year of the Ram). I’ve always been a sucker for Chinese food and get way too excited by those paper placemats that list the 12 animals of Chinese astrology.

I read up a bit on “sheep”. Those babies who will be born between Feb.19th, 2015 and Feb 7, 2016 will be amiable, easy to get along with and tend not to rock the boat. Herding instincts! Sheep’s lucky flowers are pansies, primroses and carnations. They’ll get along just fine with snakes and horses and will butt heads with tigers, dogs and rats. Their element is wood. Not sure what that means.

So I’m a fire monkey. Not surprisingly most of my friends are fire monkeys (we share a chinese new yearbirth year). Here’s a good Chinese Astrology site.  So what sign are you?
