Tick, Tick, Tick....

That is the sound of the clock...if you couldn't guess. The clock on what? Who knows! There is soooo much that could go wrong right now, so many things making headlines, that it's virtually impossible to choose.

It could be the clock ticking on world currencies (not just the Dollar and the Euro, btw).

It could be the clock ticking on yet another North and South war that we (the U.S.) will naturally have to dabble in.

It could be the clock ticking on the slow, oily death that is the BP mess.

It could be the clock ticking on a North v. South war of our own...or pro v. anti...or gov't v. the people...whatever the hell it gets called.

Tick, tick, tick...wonder which alarm will sound first. Doesn't matter, I don't think there are too many more that will wake up. Most will just hit snooze and drift right on back to sleep. Those of us that have been awake since 10 minutes before the alarm will be the ones to watch the scramble once the others realize just how late they've slept.

I can hyear the same ticking...and it may just be not only a clock, but a ticking bomb!

Too many things going on!

Too true HJ, too true....throw a little Isreali hard-headedness into the mix (ongoing Gaza blockade, AI report accusing of war crimes, etc) along with all the issues already at play there and you have a slew of things that are tick, tick, ticking!

Nice to see ya my friend!

So long as you hear it Momma, that's all that matters. The rest will get a rude awakening...
