New Years Resolutions

Should Auld Acquaintance Be Forgot?

It's that time of the year again, to send all those old habits packing, and to ring in new ones. Here at the Metro, we'd like to know what your New Years' resolutions are...

Your Name:

Submitted Resolutions...

Kristen McCarty: To give birth and survive it.
Larry Wendt: No pessimism or cynicism.
Kelly McCarty: To be more patient, or to be a patient more (I haven't decided yet)
Brad McCarty: To watch as much TV as possible.
Austin McCarty: Not to start smoking.
Mike McCarty: 1. Go to my Fortress of Solitude and get in shape. "Rocky" soundtrack and Gilad tapes will be helpful. 2. Learn to play the banjo, especially "Foggy Mountain Breakdown" or anything else from "Deliverance."  3. World peace and health for all. 4. Draw the rest of Popeye's body, not just the head. 5. And last but not least, set a limit when lost: Ask directions after two hours.
Margaret McCarty: To be a better person.
Jerry McCarty: To spend more time with my family.
Bev VanWallegm: Try harder to help Margaret control her scrap booking addiction.

Metro Sound Off

I downloaded "Our Car" and it sounded strangely familiar to another Cockroach hit "Bar Car". Is there any similarities? 
Plag R. Ism
ED NOTE: I can't hear any similarities at all. I do think the songs "Styrofoam" and "I'm Diggin' Holes" are eerily the same. I smell a lawsuit.

Dear Editor: I'm sorry that you had to go to the emergency room, but I'm sure eating 80 of those .10 cent hot wings doesn't have anything to do with it.
ED NOTE: Good thing I held back... huh?

This website rocks...love it! Oh yeah and Jerry's World is hilarious! 
ED NOTE: Thanks Chris

Why Not Sound Off To The Metro


On your Christmas Movie page in December, someone stated that the singer in the Grinch Who Stole Christmas was Tony the Tiger. I don't believe it. The next thing you'll tell me is that Hermey the Elf was the voice of Captain America, Spiderman, and the Hulk. Fiddle Foey!!
-Christmas Toon Watcher
ED NOTE: I'm not sure of the names you mentioned, but a little known fact is that Barney Rubble accompanied Tony the Tiger in the Grinch on a Stoneway piano. The Tony was quoted as saying, "Not only can he put Elton John to shame on the keyboards, but that Barney Rubble is one hell of an actor

I want to read more about the entire "alleged" scandal involving David Seville and Brad Savage!
ED NOTE: In his memoirs "All Funked Up", Brad admits that it was jealousy over the fact that Seville's 3 singers had better voices than any of Brad's Cockroaches, combined with the fact that Simon on the bass guitar was, and still is, the best in the business.

How come I wasn't in the name draw? I buy good gifts. Plus all I ever ask for is socks. That way I'm never disappointed.
-Reuben Mathers
ED NOTE: Even if there are holes in them socks (I like to use items then re-gift)

Has any genealogy been associated with McCartyMetro or is this site a "generic" McCarty group?? (not to demean you'all as generic). I've traced my forebears to the Wisconsin area after originating in New York and Connecticut..nevertheless, I still love your web site.
-Dale McLellan, Las Vegas
ED NOTE: Don't bet on it!

Why does Jocko always have to work blue? I'm afraid Peanut is going to go postal on dumb cartoon character!
-Lake Speed
ED NOTE: I don't think Jocko works blue. If anything, it's Peanut that should get the PG13 rating. However, if you are convinced Jocko is the troublemaker, why not SPANK THE MONKEY right now!

Kelly... Thanks again for letting me steal a few ideas from your site. My site is up and running and we'll see what the families think over the holidays. I kind of rushed it I was trying to have it done before Christmas. Next month will be a little better I hope. Anyway, I hope you and your family have a great Christmas and New Year. Oh yea, here is my family site, for better or worse www.pigletnews.com. P.S. my kids want to know if I can use your pig riding the bicycle gif?
-John Nugent
ED NOTE: John... The site looks great. You can take the pig, as long as you don't bring him back.

This is one of the strangest things I have ever encountered. Left brain, right brain. While sitting at your desk, lift your right foot off the floor and make clockwise circles. Now, while doing this, draw the number "6" in the air with your right hand. Your foot will change direction and there's nothing you can do about it.

Joke Of The Month

A tour bus takes off with a full load of seniors, when a little old lady taps the bus driver on the shoulder. She offers him a Handful of almonds, which he gratefully munches up.
After about 15 minutes, she taps him on the shoulder again and hands him another handful of almonds. She repeats this gesture many times. He asks her why they don't eat the almonds themselves, whereupon she replies that it's not possible because of their false teeth. We're not able to chew them.
"If you can't chew them, why do you buy them then?" he asks puzzled, 
whereupon the old lady answers: "We just love the chocolate around them!
