The Rolling Stones — Far Away Eyes.
What’s on your mind?
RIP Johnny Maestro
Am I the only person who likes “Some Girls”?
hey mr why — and oh crap
hey newton — i like that tune. how ya doing?
I’ve been outed by Glenn Beck.
“Well, you know what kinda eyes she got…”
and I meant the album…
hey boomer — gotta be logged into facebook to see the video
how ya doing (besides that outing thing)
We’ve lost a couple this week and he’s another.
the stones really experimented with a lotta genres. i admire that about them — their willingness to expand beyond just rock and roll.
i’m eh. tis a windy rainy night tonight.
Hated that album, love this song!!! Always loved this song!!!!
hey larue — how’s sac tonight?
Yes they did, as much as any band in the days of the 60′s, 70′ and 80s’s!!
The Stones were working with their R&B roots, and then all kinds of US impressions, and beyond, just as the Beatles and other bands of the time did!
I love this one, it’s a fav!!! *G*
Thanks for posting it Suz!!!!!
They are so young, and so spot on music wise and the snark runs high!!!
i love the look mick gives the camera when he’s talking about running 20 red lights
Oh, cripes. Nice choice, Suzanne!
hey ppd – how’s the south south bay?
hey transparait — how ya doing tonight? glad ya liked the tune
Sac, Suz, had unexpected winds, clouds, and rains today, last night but it SHOULD be clear tonight, if not colder.
A late spring, already . . . often it’s 80′s or more by now . . .
We’re in the 60′s now, 70′s last week . . go figger, NO global warming!!! ;-)
How’s it up there with you? Thought I’d seen major winds on radars?
winter storm blowing in (or maybe its blowing out). windy rainy — sure don’t feel like spring today.
Pretty cranky, but the tunes make a big difference.
I think, that one, and Mic thru it all, is likely the best bad boy Mic we ever saw . . . *G*
The band woiks thru it all, too, with the eye rolls, head shakes, and more.
All in parody, all done in PERFECT note, note for note . . . hard not to like just for the musical sake.
Add the comedy/parody, it’s perfect!!!
well, thanks Suz – how’s everyone at your house tonight?
Not EVEN.. one of my favs… & Sharks WIN!!
i hear ya — the waters at the lake have been turbulent lately and its taking its toll on everyone i think
late late nite is all about the taking a break — music helps as does the laughter on my sat nite cartoon posts
Nor here, ma’am . . . but we got all the starters goin on, and all the major plants and pots goin.
I have NO idea where honey is gonna put the 50 flowers and the 50 herbs she’s sprouting where the sun will shine, but hey, it’s better to have too much than too little!
N I had a routine, too . . . she’s the Gracie to my George, I guess . . ;-)
token and bailey are on opposite sides of the wood stove trying to ignore the storm outside.
Heh, after 9 losses, are they in the league, hoss?
hey nahant — so its a happy dance night for you? :)
hey bb — how’s your bay tonight?
Wind and rain ragin Suz?
not blowing in the 90′s tonight.. just some good gusts in the 30′s and steady in the teens.
Well Puck You Too BB!
love in vain
I love that album. “Miss You” is just perfect.
This song great, Suz! Take 2 Stones songs and call me in the morning.:)
Dat was only six… six losses and now it is two wins in a row… sheesh.. hope they got that losin shit over and done with…
hey margot — how’s ohio tonight?
We got the tail end of what you are getting Suz…
sure do miss those high 70′s of a few days ago…
Oh well Climate Change… ya think???
You hazzed 90′s Gusts this week???
it won’t be safe to put stuff in the ground until after mother’s day so i guess its just a typical oregon spring
I’m still replayin the vid up top, now ya do this to me . . .
Sigh . . . ;-)
You got good taste, all I can say . . *G*
My conclusion after several years of politics is that it is a very low form of consciousness. I am reading about brain waves. UC Berkely and UCSF did a neurology study as did other Universities and determined that Buddhist meditators had the best organized brain waves for optimum mental coordination of mental tasking. Their theta waves coordinated well with alpha beta delta waves. http://berkeley.edu/news/media/releases/2006/09/14_theta.shtml
Slow brain waves play a key role in coordinating these capacities from local to brain wide activity. So we can become “smarter” if we work at it.
One good puck deserves another no doubt.
Well, I think we’re getting ES’s weather. Lotta rain.
not this week but this winter — sure. it gets windy when the storms blow in == i like that — wild mother nature and i have a great seat in front of the windows to see it all.
better than snow tho :)
back when in Maine nothing but peas went in the ground until after the first full moon after Memorial day… growing season was short.. now here in deadwood city is a whole different game… sun flowers are already sprouting… Basil in the pots… Peas & green Beans planted… starting to spout….Strawberries on the vine… think I will stay here..
I’m surprised the Pups aren’t more alighted on the Far Away Eyes, of The Boys.
That Suz Posted . . . It’s one of my favs of all time, and I’m a phreak for The Stones.
I mean, I was listenin to the gospel colored radio and I ran the next 20 red lights?
I mean? Hello? Pups? This thing on?
Sigh, I must be old . . . Nahant??? Please? ;-)
bay area has some fine weather — which is why it is so forking crowded :)
if ya click on the song title in the post — it will take ya to the utube page — the person who posted the video on utube also posted the lyrics on the right hand side (click more info)
Oh sure. Not complaining.
Lord, Nicky Hopkins on piano, Ian Stewart, Mick Taylor on the slide!, and all the rest that were the heart of the studio scene in them earlier daze.
And a great song, and it’s still a camp jam song late at night at fests I frequent.
Dang you got an eye and ear for that 70′s stuff, ma’am . . . *G* Thanks. *G*
Says so MUCH!!
sorry — i was too in touch with my inner pollyanna there — trying to counter-balance that it was a dark stormy night thing i got going
…and I’ll raise you Wild Horses…
Bless Da Sharks, but sadly . . . like da Warriors . . . and A’s . . . and Raiders (ad infinutem).
still under 80k here Suz… Can’t build where there is no land…
Although Cargill wants to build 30k + units on their old salt flats… fuck sure hope they don’t… should go back to Bay Marshes as it once was… let Mother nature take back what once was hers…
under my thumb
DANG! Such vista’s at 90mph!!! Whooooo!!!!!
its all over now
my my my its another of my fav stones tunes….
And house is haunted as ghost have returned when the critters start to howl. The old board are a creakin and the wind is whining throughout the eaves. Strange lights emanate through the night. The Northwest wind is cold. We had a bit all day today.
Thanks, I have the lyrics n chords in my song book . . . and yes, truly one of the greats IMHO . . . my camp mates can’t seem to get the changes, but the chords are easy!!! Ahhh well . . . lol
Jane Hampsher is the girl with faraway eyes.
like a rolling stone
A pretty good imitation from The Ramones.
hey loohoo — how’s socal tonight?
it really is :) thanks
Here is the letter I was talking about yesterday. I wrote a diary about the letter. Check it out.
SF Radio Host: Okay to Meet Government Employees With a Loaded Shotgun

Under My Thumb
Good ole shit man..
Heh, when I was a cook and there were waitresses . . .
Your part of town had a lot of our types, we ended up in Deadwood, often.
And of course, I’ll moan and whine about Barney Steele’s . .
When You And I Were Young, Nanant . . . . . ;-) (an old bluegrass song, hoss)
Not Fade Away
Laure??? no Stones to add??
hey spocko — i recommended your diary
how ya doing tonight?
Dang, ok, that one is a keeper!! I’m so busted . . . sigh, took YOU to do it though . . .*G*
Great song, hoss, great lyrics. Long served, too.

Oh no another one I love and missed, this could go on forever!!! *G*
And yeah, that’s a huge camp jam tune, still . . .
Dang, I’m about to think all of you PUPS are not only festers, hippies and wanderers, but yer pickers too!!!
Sigh, another great camp jam . . . it’s never ending this camp jam . . .
some times you just have to listen to those lyrics… damn life meaning stuff… oh well getting older has it’s moments the wonder about all of it…
I know. Thank you I’m now at the top of the list. Woot!
I’m a bit annoyed that I have gotten no response to the letter.
I’m A Man
nah just an old bass player… ya know the one at the bottom keeping rhythm along with the drums…
Here is the other link to the Buddhist study. http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/articles/A43006-2005Jan2.html
Davidson concludes from the research that meditation not only changes the workings of the brain in the short term, but also quite possibly produces permanent changes. That finding, he said, is based on the fact that the monks had considerably more gamma wave activity than the control group even before they started meditating. A researcher at the University of Massachusetts, Jon Kabat-Zinn, came to a similar conclusion several years ago.
In other words if people spend more time meditating than fighting they would have better outcomes. What do you think?
i’m a woman
was an excellent diary spocko — glad it got the recognition :)
“And I Won’t Forget To Put Roses On Your Grave!”
Writ by Townes van Zandt, made history by Mic N The Boys.
Lord. Dead Flowers . . . Country Stoned Indeed . . .
Oh Lordy, spocko. This is getting scary. Keep up the good reporting, please.
We’re expecting more rain next week
What about the brains of people with ADHD? Is that permanent.
Did I mention we do this in camp up tempo?
One of my favs, and I LOVE this bid of Keith, thanks!
Dang, this was to #57, my bad somehow . . .
congrats on snaggin the 100 larue
Love that clip and it’s a fav for our camp jams . . . great share, that clip.
Dead Flowers was written by Townes van Zandt? Really? I didn’t know that.
Another crummy day in paradise, eh nahant?
hoochie coochie man
Lord, you got it goin on, one of my first favs on vinyl in ’64!!!!
Dang, yer good gal . . .*G*
Whoo Hoo on your 100! I know you said it didn’t matter to you, but really…does it?
Dang, that’s a good clip with the intro, and such . . . yer all over it!!
You don’t SAVE this stuff, for nights like this, do ya?
BTW, for all you who care, that big ass mic that Mic’s sangin into and is positioned in other places it’s an ElectroVoice RE-20, one of the greatest vocal mics and insruments mics of all time.
Just sayin . . . remember that RE-20, it makes gods out of sounds . . . we used them in radio back in the 70′s and they are still one of the best in the recording biz, I’ve been told recently. *G*
Neurofeedback, which is a form of biofeedback, has been used for over 20 years to treat concentration related difficulties associated with ADD/ADHD and LD. In general, Neuro-feedback is a modality which uses an EEG recording system along with training software to enhance brain wave activity that is instrumental for improving concentration.
Brain Wave Activity and Attentional Shifting
The brain produces different frequencies for different levels of attention. They include the following:
Delta – sleep state
Theta – between sleep and awake, also a meditative state
Alpha – relaxed state
Beta1 – focused concentration
Beta2 – alert state
Beta3 – very alert, vigilant
Beta4 – Hyper vigilant
The ability to produce the right states, especially those associated with focus and attention is paramount to be able to perform a variety of cognitive tasks. In addition, the ability to shift from one state to another when required, offers tremendous mental flexibility, which results in enhanced performance in every area of life.
The short answer is treatment is available for attention deficit disorder.
I’m A Woman too
*blowing smoke off my keyboard*
i’m your man
Time for bed, rather than All Night Long
g’nite mr why
Home from work – my Friday night.
Beautiful day today – in the mid-40s and sunny with no wind. Some of my starter tomatoes and peppers are getting 4 inches tall. Planted 18 mint units today.
Recovering from surgery well.
Another great Stones Tune, hoss . . . Brian Jones originally on marimbas.
What a sound they had . . . sigh.
No way… G)
Started doing power cleans tonight along with regular progressive resistance training. Weaker than I had thought but responding well. All that hot yoga takes a lot out of you along with the tight spots. So you have to go back rebuild power aqnd mass. (between comments)

Congratulations nice to here a good recovery so you can use both limbs.
hey emerson — how ya doing tonight?
What surgery, ET? Hope all is well.
hey et — glad to here your elbow is healing well. spring?
you are in amazing shape dood
they cleaned out a bursa in my left elbow that had infected. My left arm is useful in some ways, useless in others. it will be better next week. I need to lift a tuba by tuesday. in this operation, they don’t stitch the work back up. they leave it bare and open.
i know a hothouse flower is high maintenance but that is outrageous
Why? My favs are covered so far!!
I’m in listinen heaven, hoss . . . *G*
Anything I’d add would be so obscure no one would know . . . ;-)
Sittin On A Fence, 2000 Lightyears From Home, Citadel, all the blues covers from the first two albums, Back Street Girl, She’s A Rainbow . . . nah, I’m good with what’s goin on!
Tickled, too!!! *G*
we call it “breakup.”
THERE’S one Nahant nudged me on I woulda hit!!
GREAT STONES SONG!!!
*laughing* has your lake broke yet?
Ok, I give up, that whole album is full of covers and camp jam tunes.
If I did, I did it all for you . . . ;-)
It will be a while. The ice is still about 30 inches thick.
Wow. I like to read stuff about the mind and the brain (with a name like Spocko’s Brain, duh).
One of my favorite books was about this stuff was
The Mind and the Brain: Neuroplasticity and the Power of Mental Force
I was reading it and a SF book about quantum brain states at the same time. It was like they were both using the same science as the source for their books and took them in different directions.
yikes – when is your safe to plant in the ground date?
1. 3. 1 .3. 1. 5.
Thump it dawghouse!!!!
Open, so it will drain properly?
Don’t forget Sympathy For The Devil
on that note nite nite Pups keep the music going for when it stops… so does all else…
I Like this side of the Daisy’s…
sleep well pups..
In other words if people spend more time meditating than fighting they would have better outcomes. What do you think?
I think it depends on what one means by “better.” ;-)
(And that reminds me of the funny old bumper sticker “Meditation is not what you think.” :-) )
It’s also helpful to understand that everything one does is a meditation. Meditation is anything that stabilizes one’s consciousness in a particular way. So everyone, everywhere is meditating, 24×7, usually rather reflexively doing the meditation that has them experience themselves in the way they usually do.
But that’s still a meditation.
So since everyone’s always meditating all the time, the only question is what kind of meditation one chooses to do. A laughing meditation is different than a fighting meditation is different than a heart-centered meditation. They all do different things. What do you want?
And the encompassing evaluation is whether the meditation one chooses to do (for example, the “post on politics website” meditation) is in alignment with the outcomes one wants, both in the short term and in the long term.
To return to your original question, if it can be re-phrased to mean “More Buddhist meditating would mean less fighting,” then it’s sort of tautologically true, since the only alternative is all-fighting. But that doesn’t mean meditating is “better,” it’s just different.
And most important to understand of all, meditation as a way of rejecting fighting is still fighting. It’s fighting against fighting, using meditation as one’s weapon. Oooooooops. :-)
Open to everything.
I would encourage anyone who’s interested in meditation to learn some different kinds and practice. An intentionally consciousness-stabilizing meditation like a heart-centered meditation can be utterly transformative.
Even a simple breathing practice (paying a little attention to one’s breath, always in the background of one’s awareness keeping one’s breathing slow and regular, breathing deeply into one’s body, then relaxing on the exhale) will over time completely re-balance one’s consciousness.
Then again, even being happy and content all the time isn’t necessarily “better.”
But I like it.
Enough people learning to choose their relationship to the world, rather than simply be stuck in the reactions of their limbic system, is what will change our society and our world.
hey eternal — how ya doing tonight?
Naw, only if it saves Suz from something . . . -;)
Memorial Day weekend. A lot of the starters I have going are for the greenhouse, which is now getting warmed.
it amazing me how late ya put in and how much ya get — all that sun :)
when do ya expect the lake to break up? sometime in late april or early may?
Other than being somewhat anxious from trying to squeeze the beauty of meditation into a little text box, not too badly. :-) Thanks for asking.
I’m especially encouraged by how fucked up things are getting in this country. We’re getting closer to the point where enough people will actually do something (that’s the value of the Tea Partiers – I don’t agree with all that they want, but goddamn the “progressives” could do a lot more good in the world if they had the Tea Partiers’ willingness to act).
And I’m happy there’s a little more sun and warmth here (sorry Southern Hemisphere!).
How are you?
I can’t keep up, Suz has created the best evah RS thread, and I thought I’d be here till the sun comes up!!!
I swear, You Pups know every Stones Song I Ever Knew, and more!
But I can’t stay, I got stuff to tend to, and sleep to catch.
Suz, you Pups, what a great first vid, what great Pups who know The Stones front and back as I thought I did, and know MORE!!!
“So I’m just sittin on a fence.
You can’t say I got no sense.
Trying to make up my mind,
It really is so hard to find.
So I”m sittin on a fence.”
(what pups knew this was about Mic’s bi-sexual confusions)
Thanks, all, but I gotta run and zzzzzzz . . .
its been a rough couple of weeks on me — i moderate most nights and it got pretty ugly for a while. had several times when i had to walk away from the keyboard and just breathe in and breath out until i got myself under control again.
i’m enjoying living where there are all 4 seasons (instead of the 2 and a half the sf bay area had). more sun and warmth is great after a cold gray winter.
My bad, missed that one, a keeper!!
YOU, m’lady, are the queen of The Stones!!!
And now, teh zzzzz’s . . . ;-)
Back for this.
Yep, I learnt that thru festing and such, others knew Townes Songs real well.
Enough people learning to choose their relationship to the world, rather than simply be stuck in the reactions of their limbic system, is what will change our society and our world.
nice. So often I hear something and I instantly go to the same place. It’s not usually a good place. If I’m conciouse of my thoughts I can see that my thought response is not always correct. They call it errors in thinking.
One that I do is to predict the future, and it is often a bad one. It is helpful sometimes but after awhile it gets tiring. That is why when someone offers hope and good things in the future I fall for it at first and the, if things don’t turn out good my cynical side is rewarded.
Ok, my LAST comment tonite.
Suz, that is sooooo beautiful.
I have some LIVE Lenny Cohen from two dates in Australia in 2009, in January I think.
Pure great audio, and both nights with at least 20 or more songs.
And the cut you chose, to show him? Pure gold.
Dang I love Cohen, this song, and you nailed it in the LLN Patios . . .
Nice, gal. *G*
Quick, too, on the draw.
With that, and some Lenny in my ears, I’m goin sandman now, like I thought I was half hour ago.
First we take Manhattan, then we take Berlin, I’m yer man, zzzzzzzzzzz
Sorry to hear life – or at least moderating – has been a challenge. I hope things will improve now that the hyenas have a carcass on which to feed. (Too bad that’s us!) :-/
And yeah, it’s nice to have 4 seasons, rather than just fire season and mudslide season. Though this was always my favorite time in Marin – everything’s so wonderfully green….
i’m hoping the waters become more placid.
i lived in sf bay area from 64 to almost 2 years ago. in co co county at the foot of diablo and then alameda county and finally santa cruz county. spring was always great because it was green — and not that ugly baby shit yellow brown the hills turned when the dry season began.
dood you are gonna be mad at me when ya have to answer that alarm clock in the am (laughing)
night all – be well
Ever present to paint the pretty mental picture!
But I know exactly what you mean…
g’nite ppd — stay dry dood
sorry — what would ya call that color dood? its forking ugly with a capitol ug
…that ugly baby shit yellow brown…
it’s right on the money
is what my mom always called it (but she did lower her voice to a whisper when saying shit)
Hey Sister Suzanne, what’s shakin’ in the kennel tanight?
weird flash when you mentioned mom…
I walked into a client’s home a few months back. I smelled ammonia and immediately flashed on that smell from my childhood, but I didn’t recall right away about what.
Suddenly, I had it. I turned to my client’s wife – they are about my mom’s age, and said, “You have combs and brushes soaking in the bathroom sink.”
They looked at me like I was nuts, and then walked me to the guest bathroom, where… there were combs and brushes soaking in the bathroom sink.
These children of WWII are all cut from the same cloth.
citizen norske — nothin — whatchu doing up so late? how ya been?
oh man — i remember my mom doing that. ya could smell it all over the entire house (and it was a great heads up that mom was on a cleaning binge)
I wouldn’t necessarily say any particular reaction is not “correct.” I find it much more helpful to trust my psyche and ask “what is it my psyche is trying to show me about myself by having me see and feel this?”
And it sounds like your “cynical” side is actually what saves you – otherwise you’d just gently float off into happiness and lose yourself.
Your cynicism and re-discovery of “bad” things is like the string on a balloon that keeps it from drifting away. It keeps you connected to the earth.
So I’d say your cynicism deserves a sincere thanks, since it’s always, always, always remembering to look out for you, even when you forget.
And if you want that Icarus-like return to earth to be less painful, try keeping just a small awareness of your unpreferred outcomes as you go through your day. Not to fixate on them, or to avoid or control them, but to make peace with them. They don’t want to control or dominate your life. They just want to make sure you don’t forget them – because when you forget them you’ve forgotten yourself.
Most of all, the “negative” outcomes all have a positive side, like a glass that’s half-full is also half-empty. When you find yourself stuck in your cynicism, ask yourself what positive thing your cynicism is trying to show you (works the other way, too). And whatever happens either way, keep breathing. It’s what connects our mind to our bodies, keeps us centered and balanced.
Free analytic psychology while you wait! ;-)
Thanks for reading my earlier comment, too. Have a nice night!
wow i’m gonna have to try this. thank you
That will be $450 please.
bout time for me to fade away — g’nite and thank you for all the music and conversation tonight.
Pups woke me up…had ta settle ‘em down before they pissed off Mrs. Norske…our Corgie snores somethin fierce sumtimes and wakes up the Westie and we get 2 part harmony from the kennels…doesn’t make for great domestic relations in the AM.
Substantially more helpful *and* affordable than than Dr Van Pelt *G*
Awe shit…I missed ‘er…oh well, nite folks…remember that what’s bad is bad except when it’s good and then it’s REALLY bad (now THAT’s some “analytical phychology” from Grampa Ole).
nite you guys
bad is bad
*poofing for realsies*
I’m really frightened of the violence that seems to overcome this nation. I do fear for myself a tiny bit, but for my children and yours, Is there a chance that the Democrat “leadership” is going to do something about it? Or are they afraid of the political implications. i.e if we crack down, the nutjobs think “oh my the commies are coming.?
You’re welcome, Suzanne. Thanks for all you do here.
Since you’re going to try it, it’ll probably help to also consider expanding your definitions of positive and negative. Simply trying to force the current experience into your old ways and preferences will just hurt. You might get lucky and find something you like in the old way that you like things, and that’s great, but you’ll generally get more pleasant results if you can just relax and open.
For example, the current health insurance debacle could be seen as a horror and a hastening of the death of America. Finding positive things in that, or your moderation during it, might be difficult.
But what if the old America wants to die, because it knows its time is over and it wants to make room for what comes next? Then hastening death is a good thing, and it’s the holding on to the old (that we thought was a positive act) that’s really the problem.
It’s like a disease – are the painful symptoms bad or good? They’re bad because they hurt, but they’re good because they’re trying to tell me something I’m doing is injurious and I need to change. They’re the height of the disease, but they’re also the most important moment of healing – if I open to them and accept them.
At every moment, everything is always both. Whole.
When you try whatever you try, remember to take 2 or 3 nice, deep, relaxing breaths before you do. Don’t start until you can feel yourself connected to the ground and balanced and relaxed in your body, letting go of whatever tension you can. You want to start looking for balance and wholeness from a place of balance and wholeness. Starting from a polarity will tend to have you only see polarity. What we see “out there” is just a a reflection of what we already are inside.
I suppose you could look at it as an exercise in moderation, in the best possible sense of moderation as keeping things balanced and whole.
Maybe all this night work was just practice for what you’re going to try in the rest of your life.
Huh. Who knew? ;-)
and if the fbi gets involved, with the patriot act in mind, will they have carte blanche to harass all of us?
If history is a guide, lookin’ at Weimar Germany, the “liberals (what I think you refer to as “Democrat ‘leadership’”) will be afraid to confront the violent lunatics in the street because they then give up the “authority” of civil government and the ruling elite wait until the violent, minority thugs in the street have crushed the “democratic” majority and then implement a strong father totalitarian government that leaves control of wealth and the means to makin it in the hands of the few and the civil power of social control in the hands of the sociopaths and prison guards.
Thanx for the tunes, dear, and keep your head on straight…there’s a lotta bullshit bein thrown around at everyone around here lately, ya gotta have yer boots on and your shit detector on “high”…take a couple a tokes a the good stuff before ya venture on in the “moderator” role.
well norske if I read that right I’m more afraid that the thing that the teabaggers are screaming about will come to fruition. That is they are pushing us into an authoritarian control
But I’m not an essential part of a beloved Christmas TV special, so…it all evens out. :-)
And it just occurs to me that Lucy helped rather rotund Charlie turn cluelessness and an absolute unwillingness to learn from the past into healthy exercise and a big, big pile of money.
Well, at least I’ve still got the affordability thing. ;-)
ps norske, I’m ‘coming out” after lurking for a little more than a year here
Welcome. New this evening, and now that you have ventured in there is no going back. (That is a good thing.)
Glad you decided to de-lurk!
Lol, suzanne ‘baby shit yellow-brown” Don’t forget the green after it had just a touch if H2O!
perhaps that is true Mr/Mrs/Ms Mod, but I am not predictable.
Ah B.S. I’ll probably comment more now. THANK YOU!!
Welcome to the swamp, Citizen, and you are correct that I believe unless our “liberal” domestic, civil authority uses the power that the fascists left ‘em in the Patriot Act and declare right-wing violence as domestic terrorism…unless Obama finds the right “moment” to bring the hammer down on the bastards, then we are in for domestic violence between citizens with private,corporate mercenary troops tippin’ the balance. We hafta put the pressure on our elected government to get our GI’s and National Guard troops back in the country and back to their neighborhoods…they are, after all, the “well regulated militia” that the Founders talked about and I know there are a lotta veterans of Iraq who would love ta get a shot at the Blackwater and Xe snoteaters.
Tough call… free shrink v. cheap one who may make me rich.
I’ll sleep on that. g’nite :-)
Okay Norske, That is what I don’t want. The gov’t should crack down on the seccessionists or terrorists, but will they stop there or if the gov’t will decide to, once again, smack down us DFH’s who only want our country back!
Townes included Dead Flowers on his Roadsongs album, but that was pretty well a cover record, and it is credited there to Jagger/Richards.
