Peter, Paul & Mary – If I Had A Hammer
What’s on your mind tonite…?
Aloha, Suz…! How’s your inlet tonite…?
I was 15 when I heard this in a music store — my brother was buying champaigne colored drums.
Aloha, Chris…! I’m getting myself pumped for tomorrow’s GA…! ;-)
How’s Ohio tonite…?
Hey, LateNighters….rainy day in south central California…. all day. Nice to just snuggle in and do homey things in anticipation of the big holiday to come.
Windy and Sherrod Brown defensive.
**peeks around corner**
This is what it’s all about… ‘We Shall Overcome’
God bless, Pete…!
I like Sherrod Brown very much (and his wife!)….I hope he’s still the good guy I think he is.
storm coming in tonight around midnight.. supposed to be very windy and wet and will be followed by another very windy and wet storm — could have a total of 4 to 5 inches of rain by tuesday afternoon. tonight should be gusts in the 50′s and tomorrow night weather doods are saying there may be gusts up to 80 mph.
Maple walnut cookies !
Aloha, Dearie…! Still Soggy here too…!
You have a good supply of wood, I think, for hunkering down and staying cozy.
Aloha, Teddy…! That was a great Late Nite, Mi amigo…!
When yer a nail everything looks like a hammer:)
CT, I’ve certainly enjoyed your enthusiasm about the GA Hilo … I always enjoy hearing about what’s happening across our diverse nation.
Suz you stole all that fluff we was hoping for.
…gusts up to 80 mph.
Wow, I hope you’re hunkered down, Suz…! Best wishes to ya…! *g*
you can have it back dood…. come get it
Aloha, homeroid…! How’s the weather now…?
strongest i’ve had since moving up here in 08 was a gust of 93…
hiya Suzzz, firegods
These times they are a-changing…
Aloha, PPD…! I hope all is well with you and yours…!
Honest we tried to grab it but it just slid too far south. We need some ground cover to go out for firewood. Hang on an stoke the fire.
So it might be sustained 80 mph gales…? 8-(
Just a heads up to all…! I just might be delayed again by Hilo’s GA tomorrow nite…!
Don’t Think Twice, It’s All Right…
here’s the current warnings
Brain freeze. What was that Fairport convention song? we will all meet on the bluff? Travel to the cliff? dang it it’s on the tip of my tongue.
Ctuttle the amazing GA stacker…we are proud of your service to our country and its freedom fighters! Go Tut go Fight Tut fight…we can’t win if we don’t participate!
traveling by steam?
One thing that does give me great hope is that the Egyptians absolutely refuse to give in…!
or meet on the ledge?
I wonder if the Big O will speak out again in defense of the protesters in Egypt? (I don’t think I’ll be able to stand it if he does….particularly after the various pepper-spraying of young Americans doing free speech.)
BINGO thank you from me having to crawl in the cold warehouse to find the tape box. Bless you.
Aloha, bb…! Ya making me blush now…! It is totally awesome to participate…! I liked that retired Philly PD Captain’s response to his #ows arrest… “proudest moment of my life”…! *g*
Some friends of mine for when you have the time to listen to it all
This is still my Fave Dylan tune… Like a Rolling Stone…
Aloha, TG…! I always enjoy your links…!
Look at the group pictures of the “Founding Father’s” They infected France to dump the “Royalty’. Thomas Paine’s revolutionary phamplet, Common Sense, that helped motivate the overthrow of British tyranny may be useful in creating Change that we can believe in may help us with the messaging. It is so patriotic and American!
I see the minds in today’s struggle dealing with issues that the “Founding Father’s” addressed. Paine was a working man I might add.
I’ve personally read all the Federalist Papers and Common Sense, too…! I totally hear ya…! ;-)
I think the only gripe I have is the ‘consensus rule’ of the GA, as opposed to the Founder’s ‘majority’ rules…
And the Dylan poetry Like a Rolling stone is oh so applicable to all the young homeless that are camping across the nation with little beyond a knapsack. More change we can believe in. How does it feel to be on your own with no direction home like a rolling stone.It spoke to me then and speaks to me now as it should them. Acoustic Bob!
It was almost earth shaking, that my local rag had headlined this story today… Homeless on Big Isle…
We did happen to have two 3.5′ers on the Seismic counter today, tho…!
Here is a pdf of Common Sense in case it becomes required reading for Firedogs. G
Tis a shame, that Obummer had spoiled the party…! This Land is Your Land – We Are One Obama…
Good link to homeless in Hawaii…thank you.
It was surprising to see it headlined…! They’ve yet to print a single Occupy Hilo letter to the editor or cover any of our events…! 8-(
If I Had a Rocket Launcher
Aloha, RonD…! How goes the Russian studies…? ;-)
*wow* Taylor Swift not only took the CMA’s Entertainer of the year, but, she took tonite’s AMA’s Artist of the Year…! Outstanding…!
Hey man…going pretty well. I’m heavily into Cold War covert ops research right now, finishing the relevant papers, prepping for the WW2 history class I’m teaching next semester, and occupying Tampa when I can, and supplying the occupiers when I can’t be there. Busy as hell, but in a good way.
Right on, Ron…! How is Tampa’s Occupy doing…?
I did see that APC that Tampa has all painted in PD Blue and sporting that rack of blue lights…! ;-)
According to this nifty distance calculator I am roughly 4200 miles from Hilo OR London (England). The time difference is 6 hours between London and here but only 4 between Hawaii and here. Also the latitude differential appears about the same, meaning if you drew a line from England to Hawaii it appears that it might intersect Illinois. What gives?
P.S. Life must be pretty good if these are the questions that keep me up at night. :)
Or you have entirely too much time on your hands, rf…! ;-)
Knowing they’re the same distance will make it impossible to decide where to have lunch tomorrow. :)
Decisions, decisions…! ;-)
Does being closer to the equator result in you guys getting roughly the same number of daylight hours year round?
Which Side are you on…
We experience only about a two hour differential in our dawns and sunsets…!
Ya gotta love Pete. He never had to pal around with Bill Ayers to scare conservatives. :)
It’s dark before 5 pm here. I wouldn’t mind but I rarely carpe diem before 4..
He’s always afflicted the comfortable, and comforted the afflicted…! ;-)
*heh* A night owl eh…? Speaking of fowls, how’s Bob these days…?
Speaking of the comfortable… 4 months away from our 4th anniversary. I think he’s a pretty happy (spoiled) feathered dude. :)
To be honest Bob has a great work ethic. He’s a shreddin’ machine.
That’s cool, rf…! Give him a peanut or two for me…!
Well, the better half is snoozing away and I’m fixing to join her…! I shall bid ya’ll a fond adieu…! Mahalo for the great conversation tonite, Aloha Oe…! *g*
Yeah. I’m sure they had no intension of intimidating anyone at all.
Aloha CT. Thanks for doing LLN duty.
Hi Ron! Hope all is swell at your end. I was just about to power down but I’ll stick around for a couple more minutes.
Dear heavens, Suz. Do you have a storm shelter?? Take good care, and thanks for the twitter hack alert!
Sounds like everyone’s having weather. Sprinkling here in Palm Springs too.
Love Peter, Paul and Mary, CT. Thanks! (Since 5th grade for me, CE!)
Take Me to the River?
Too bleary eyed to stare at computers any longer. S’pose I’ll watch some TV. :)
Wishing a splendid evening to all.
Best to you, ratfood. Great to see you again.
Love it. Haven’t heard that in a forever and a half.
The wife was weeks ahead of you! (“Hammer” is her fave these days)
Me? CSNY:”OHIO” (can’t stop hearing it in my head all day – for weeks now)
Also Dylan’s “The Times…” and “Lonesome Death of Hattie Carroll”
But then, I spent #n17 riveted to Tim’s stream – and ALSO crying. (You’ll see when YOU’re old)
-Hippie(since 1963) -now in forced retirement
Me? Toss up between “Visions of Johanna” and “Lonesome Death of Hattie Carroll.” But there are so many it’s REALLY hard… (& hard not to envy old aquaintance tony guarnier…) “The Times….?” “Love is just a 4-letter word?” Sooo many
When yer wearing riot gear everything looks like a riot
I miss Mary – alot.
Great folks, great song. RIP Mary Travers.
