The Rolling Stones – Lady Jane
Ahh, to be young again…!
And just because I can…
Jefferson Starship- Jane
What’s on your mind tonite…?
Aloha, Aitch…! Congrats…! How’s life going…?
While My Guitar Gently Weeps…
Maybe I should brew up a pot of Black Coffee for ya’ll…! ;-)
Thanks, my FIRST! Good to see you, CT! *g*
Isn’t It A Pity?
Obama Sends Three Trade Deals to Congress
US President Barack Obama on Monday sent long-stalled free trade deals with Colombia, Panama and South Korea to the congress and pressed lawmakers there to approve them “without delay.”
The Colombia accord stalled on US concerns over violence against labor activists, the Panama agreement faced hurdles tied to alleged money laundering and worries about opening South Korea’s automobile market held up that pact.
Aloha, The robert…! How’s So.Pa. tonite…?
Obummer and congress is completely oblivious to our plight…! 8-(

Btw, ya’ll… Hippo Birdies to SRV today and may he R.I.P…!
Pride And Joy
Remember this (from one of your ‘local’ papers)?
Am I the only one who smells the sulfurs of another European war off in the small distance?
Aloha, oldgold…! Always a delite to see ya at LLN…! Aitch jinxed ya with his first Zed…! ;-)
With who…? the Turks…?
pff, euro too small for Endless War. think china!
what ditch weed are you smokin’?
The whole thing will start with a Greek-German incident when Greece takes Germany’s bailout money then tells Germany to go fuck itself by defaulting. Both nations despise each other….
Edited . I meant Greece….
Aloha, tw3k…! Any new pics to share…? ;-)
Aloha, tuez…! I wouldn’t knock my ‘ditch weed’, it’s still pretty potent…! ;-)
How’s Floridaze tonite…?
Aloha! Nope, made a cigarbox guitar tho but no pic. :)
The Greeks and Turks have been feuding for millennia, I should suppose they’ll keep at it…!
Germany has sent its own tax collectors to Greece to teach Greece tax collectors how to properly collect taxes.
A few German tax collectors found hanging from streetlamps will seriously inflame German-Greco relations….
The Greeks should tell Angela Merkel to go, well you know where…! 8-(
Aloha, Suz…! How’s the Inlet tonite…? *g*
Of course, so the Turks will side with the Germans in the mini German-Greco dispute: the match to the gasoline that ignites a third European war….
I’m not knockin’ your ditch weed, don’t doubt it’s potent. PA’s ditch weed??
Floreeda is absolutely beautiful. Only, and I mean ONLY 81 degrees for the past 3 days. Spent yesterday afternoon outside, lazily smokin’ stuff that wasn’t ditch weed, some drank, puppies played, life was good. Then Monday happened.
Of course France will side with the Greeks as cover for their own insolvency….
European nations have been warring for decades, though no shots have been fired. The maxim still holds, that ‘democracies’ do not wage wars against democracies. Last year (?) Iceland did pretty much what Russia did in 1917 when it withdrew from the Great War.
Mondays always suck…! And It never seems to disappoint one’s low expectations for it…! ;-)
am hunkering down — gotta storm off the coast and is gonna come ashore tue and is supposed to be a wet one. weather dood said it may give us the first snow in the cascades for the season down to mt pass levels. also said if this storm doesn’t do it, there’s another one nipping at its heels that will.
Why are my comments on the potential powder keg in Europe being held up for moderation. I’m just expressing my sense of the dangerous situation over there, and not at all encouraging violence….
“Is this the phase that launched a thousand defaults?”
I’d expect Greece to follow suit, along with Ireland, Portugal, Spain, etc…!
Hey, visitor! Early little snows in the Cascades lead to ice age glaciers?
Why not…? That House of Cards will surely fall sometime…!
Okay, the mod won’t let me predict the circumstances of a new war in Europe, so I guess I’ll comment on how very tasty my homemade deep dish apple pie is….
*oof* Hunker down indeed, Suz…! Tradewind patterns have returned with a vengeance here…! Morning showers, followed by steamy noons, and, capped with soggy evenings…!
What? My praise of my own self-baked apple pie can’t pass mod filtering either?
I’m a paying FDL member who will not continue being so if I can’t even brag about my apple pie….
Seems it’s time for the Pope to send a sternly worded Encyclical… *g*
it can snow up in the cascades any month of the year, just like the rockies. tis a la nina year so it is forecast to be wet, windy, and wild.
My deep dish apple pie turned out more yummy than ever before. Topped with vanilla ice cream and a cup of hot chocolate….
I did mention that Mauna Kea even had a ‘dusting’ in August, right…? ;-)
Paint it Black…
Turks are saber rattling. As an emerging leader with it’s very special geography, with everyone around them on the ropes or floundering – economies, revolutions, refugees, isolation – it behooves Turkey to step forward and show a card or two. To show it’s in the game and knows how to play. They won’t start a ‘war’, they’d still rather be seen to prefer to be in the EU. But they will position themselves to show they are still in a strong position whether the EU sticks around or not.
Goodnight, pups. I’m being moded out of here….
Aloha, k-pop…! Exactly…! After all, they might know a thing or two about ruling ‘empires’…! ;-)
I really like finban’s offerings to the toobz…
Don’t let me be misunderstood…
Late to the thread hoss, no surprise?
Great Stones vid, one I’ve never seen.
Always loved Brian Jones, n there he is on a dulcimer, my first instrument in ’71, Jones in 67 or so before he dies.
Incredible clip, a great tune, an incredible vid, nice catch!
Awesome . . . . thanks dude!
Nutin like Old Stones ’65 or earlier, Lady Jane, yeah, I bow and sang this to Mz Hamsher, too.
Not lost on me.
We bow to our leige n lordesses we do . . . ;-)
For purpose, we do.
:) pretty sure they know their history better than we know or act like we know our own or european history.

Oh my, ERIC as a kid, at his best.
Nother great catch, what, you gone back in time?

It’s raining here — trouble for vineyards in the middle of this year’s harvest, though
Yer flyin, n off the chart.
Hell is awaiting for war amongst the middle east where oil and dope pipelines are at.
Iran hoss, that will be the planet’s death.
If it’s done by Israel or USA, the planet’s done.
Greece and the economics are of it all are but a portend of what is to come.
I disagree with ya.
So you think it’ll be a ‘bad year’ this year…?
Yeah, Dude’s a bit way off of this chart and reality IMHO.
I have disagreed with him often in the past.
I’ll try and not engage any further from this.
I get stupid wicked ugly on this reality, I do.
Lower AC costs!
Life is GOOD SUZ!!!
My fear is a pissed-off ISI agent going rogue with a Paki nuke…! Let us keep ramping up our Rhetoric (and Drones) against them…! *gah*
And Drone attacks…! 8-(
I found today’s senate blathering about China’s currency manipulation refreshing — just what Goldman Sachs & PIMCO want — a trade war induced world wide depression to suck all the remaining real asset value into the financiosphere…
For What It’s Worth…
No doubt, PPD…! Those Vampire Squid will suck blood from stones…! 8-(
Larue, was that a necessary comment…? 8-(
The vampire squid won’t stop until it’s extracted all asset value from the real economy into the phantom derivative universe.
I remember that clip of the Stones doing Lady Jane on the Ed Sullivan Show in 1967. The ever dapper and eclectic Brian Jones on dulcimer with his busted left hand. Great vid great memory!
Well, I shall bid ya’ll a fond adieu for the evening…! Mahalos…!
For my Grandson… Danny’s Song…
Rain? Depends on how long it lasts, whether there’s a strong, warm breeze to dry out the vines to prevent mold and other pests on the crop.
Produce markets have been very strong with the price of everything going up this year.
night CT – be well
