America — Ventura Highway (1975).
What’s on your mind?
Hi Suz. I hope you had a restful weekend. Ventura Highway, indeed!
Aloha, Suz…! Never a dull moment I tell’s ya, the lil Momma had a fender-bender today and she’s hard pressed to make left turns…! *sigh*
If it wasn’t for bad luck, we’d have no luck…! ;-)
hey dearie — i did, thank you. how ya doing tonight? i thought of you when i selected tonight’s song
oh noz tut!!! is she ok??? perhaps mrs tut should not be driving since she doesn’t have use of that arm….. oh my
all’s well. i may be here just for a short time….. tired from activities today.
horse with no name
that first week returning to work is always a tough one…
My middle’un was driving, and it was between her and rockwall she didn’t see when she tried to turn around when she’d realized she was going the wrong way in a one way…! No harm to anyone but the fender(and left tire)…! ;-)
I was ready……. but both of the depositions got cancelled and rescheduled to early Sept. So glad that the office manager caught me before I got on the road! And I did get to the county fair yesterday. So it all worked out wonderfully.
*whew* sorry for misunderstanding who was driving… i bet traffic is a bitch and getting worse as the storms approach
yay and yay!!! its always better to push off that return to work date as long as possible – esp when pushing to regain a full range of motion….
woohoo!!! so… how was the fair?
The Better Half said it was her side of the family’s bad luck coming thru again…!
sister golden hair
My Son got a taste of it today, and couldn’t believe it…! ;-)
saw some footage on the local news — whoa huge lines and empty shelves at the stores
I love the county fair! And I got lucky and got there on FFA/4H showing of pigs day. I do love the pigs! Also Seniors&Disabled get in free day. Got to review numerous kinds of motorized wheelchairs and scooters, which I will discuss with my dad when I’m next up to visit. The quilts were fabulous. Wonderful pickles and pies. Tony Orlando was the afternoon talent. I didn’t go see him do his thing, but I did see him being driven into the area in a car with totally blackened windows. I wanted to say, “Hey, Tony, it’s just Ventura County…. and it’s the 1 p.m. show……. you’ll be fine!”
The sh*t is getting real…! Btw, I’ll keep y’all posted on my status as much as possible, I may not be able to host Sunday or more, with Julio expected to hit about then…! 8-(
i saw him at the circle star theater in the west bay back when his tv show was big… performing in the round
sounds like a fun day (and an informative one).
shoot ellie and i an email and be sure to keep us up to date on what’s going on with ya….
I’ve already warned Ellie, but, I’ll most certainly keep ya both in the loop…! *g*
kewlio dood…. so i assume you are all stocked up on provisions and necessaries for just in case….
Stay safe, CT. I’m sure you have laid in supplies and water. Just hunker down and know that we’ll all be thinking about you.
Btw, it was an absolutely gorgeous day, today, with gentle trades blowing…! ;-)
The calm before the storm. Glad you enjoyed it!
Hey, baybay, I’ve been thinking about you, Suzanne. We have a shy black koi baby that surfaced, didn’t know it was there. Watching it reminded me of your incredible photos of the little pond.
the proverbial calm before the storm?
Mahalo, Dearie…! It will take a hurricane, or two, to keep me away…! ;-)
hey openhope — how forking kewl! i heart your courtyard pond as you know… how’s your chicken butts?
Totally black, open…? I’ve seen a lot of Koi, but, I’ve never seen a black one…! ;-)
Oy, I’ve been thinking about you and yours,too. It sucks to have too much advanced hype about storms. How’s that supposed to make community in a storm more functioningly calm.
We used to have the roof humming for days at a time. It makes you stronger. And restless. Sorry about restless. It sucks waiting through a storm.
Surfs up hope you have a two week supply of food water and batteries. Hope the storms go Sooth of you 600 miles away?
And nice post below.
the picture of the raindrops on the pond has a wee orange one in the upper center
Not as pretty as I imagined they’d be by now. There are 2 that are affecting my Egg Image. I’m going to do another dusting tomorrow, now that they’re used to it it’s just turn ‘em upside down and dust an incredibly ugly chicken butt, then fluff the dust into those feathers and all forward feather’s, remembering to hit the armpits.
This is funny, actual farmer in KS,
Callin The Cows Home: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qs_-emj1qR4&
I’m fine, we had a couple waves of T-storms tonight. A big branch fell and bounced off house. No discernable damage.
It’s been a mighty cool summer here in KS w/ maybe one day eaching 100.
Sorry to hear abt yer wife CT. Hope it didn’t aggravate her rehab & that she mends soon.
I thought of you, open, while wandering through the chicken/rabbit barn at the fair. The chickens were quite fluffy and lovely. Didn’t seem that dusting their butts would be all that hard. :P) Hope your chicks are doing well…………and you, too, also.
kinda like powdering a baby bottom eh….
Dark gray to the point you can’t see them in shadows ? I bought these at PetCo, so they could be some invasive species that does well in small habitats. Then when set free they grow to be river monsters.
Because it was PetCo.
Our old gold fish/koi ( we paid PetCo for koi) had black babies that turned color at 2 inches.
hey ks — how ya been? thank goodness there was no damage …
And nice post below.
Always a pleasure to lead into a Suz lln, bb…! ;-)
Those are Mind Controlled Chickens. My chickens are free and have opinions about dusting!! :)
honey, your chickens have an opinion about everything *laughing*
Mahalo, kpop…! The Better Half thanks ya…! So what happened with your recent KS Primary…? We’re about to primary Abercrummy right out of the Governership, a first for Hawai’i…! ;-)
I would expect no less! Love openhope and her chicks!
hangin in there barely, Suz!
hope you are well!
Completely gray, open…? I’ve seen a handful of Albinos, but, never a completely dark Koi…!
i need you
Jeez, the young deer have decided they’re going hang out closer than the original agreement.! Deer are not docile animals willing to lay down their life for humans. No matter what cuddly thoughts we may have. Trust me. The deer does not share those cuddly thoughts. The truth about hoofed animals is that the back feet Hurt, the front feet Kill.
These 2 young deer have decided we’re their habitat recently,and I’l come around a corner to find a 200 pound deer right there. This is distressing.
On the other hand, I’ve been working on learning to make Jerky. Starting on beef with the plan of deer jerky. I just got my method ready to try, and deer start walking through my yard. Oh no!! Is Kill The Deer in my recipe??
token ran up to a mama deer when we still lived at the cabin… getting between her and her bambi… i was so scared and kept yelling no baddog etc at him and he just ran right up to her tail a’wagging. i swear her hoof was bigger than his head (and certain his brain)…. i guess she picked up on his friendly vibe and didn’t attack…. gives me shrudders at how close he got wanting to ‘touch noses’
I refuse to offer false hope,…so I can only offer comfort in the storm.
peace and respect, :)
I know 3 people who lost their dogs to deer. Razor sharp hooves and the reactions of a Prey animal. fast,frantic
Still laughing! Yes, Step One: Kill the deer, gut it and skin it and portion into sections you can handle. Then donate it to local food pantry!
Primaries were disappointing. Brownback, Kobach, Huelskamp, had moderates run against them, who all lost. Roberts, Jenkins and Pompeo, all won primaries had tea partiers run against them. So, if D’s thought to be able to get some easier races running against a moderate or a tea party candidate, in each case, no such luck. So we didn’t catch any lucky breaks there.
But, the tea party didn’t win any more chances to run. So that’s a plus as lots of money was spent uselessly.
i hear ya on the hanging in barely…. tis a sucky place to be
http://www.prh.noaa.gov/hnl/pages/HLS.php Interesting advise for storm behavior and safety.
he did the same thing to a skunk while we were living there…. thank goodness he slammed on his brakes as he got close to it….
I’m an optimist. I have to be.
The other way leads me to paralysis.
So I keep my smile stuck
and keep moving forward.
I once saw a deer attack a small dog; it was horrific. But they’re still such elegant creatures.
hey sanssouci — how ya doing this morning?
So, if D’s thought to be able to get some easier races running against a moderate or a tea party candidate, in each case, no such luck. So we didn’t catch any lucky breaks there.
I was hoping Pompeo would lose, at least…! Btw, Abercrummy is about to be ousted exactly for his ‘Moderate’ stance…! David Ige ran a ‘radical’ Left campaign and has a 18 point lead in the polls, heading into the Aug. 9th Primary…! I am worried about DLC’er Colleen Hanabusa, supplanting our current Sen. Schatz…! 8-(
i’m worried about hawaii holding the primary during the hurricanes
My super DoubleAA Plus happy surprise this week?
was when I realized after many months, that my external hd’s full of 1000′s of hours of music… weren’t crapping out on me after all.
It was the plug in transformer box that I was feeding them thru…
So after many months of not wanting to touch the things for fear of disappointment, they all actually work just fine and I lost NOTHING!
It’s these sorts of things that keep me going. I need work.
Hey Suz. I got nothing but spit and venom thinking about Janes post about CCA and all that. So glad you got back to me about the shelves. I want to build you one. Small but very different. It would be my honor! We are so busy this summer that i am fried and waisted. so will just say later at this point. Now i will read before nitie night.
woohoo!!! i just unpacked my old monitor and desktop and booted it up and it works… all my music is there. haven’t found the speakers tho
fingers and toes crossed for ya ks
Hey, Sans. Getting ready for work? The deer…. yes, they are able to take care of themselves….. except, I once passed 30 flattened deer while driving north through Ohio…. big rigs did what they did. And I once bounced a deer down the dark, dark, dark road through Cape Cod at midnight on Christmas Eve when a herd turned and looked at me. It was …. bounce one down the road or take the SUV into a cranberry bog. I bounced the sucker. The rental car came up totaled. My son, who was asleep in the ‘way back’ didn’t even notice that it happened.
hey homeroid — i’m still pissed about the idea of those assholes running shelters too….. ohmystars really? wow, thank you!!! how’s homer tonight?
I’ve already voted myself, and, current reports say many have already taken advantage of our expansive early voting system…! ;-)
The Pompous one still may fall in election. fingers crossed.
Great news about Ige!
I was confused abt Schatz, thought he wasn’t yet in office. Thanks fer setting me straight.
I assume people already know abt ks pols because they get a lot of press…
thanks goodness…. still all those folks who haven’t and who are busy getting ready for the storms are not gonna have voting high on their list… lard knows what the weather will be like on election day — that’s sat right?
And I once bounced a deer down the dark, dark, dark road through Cape Cod
Cape Cod…? I doubt Cape Cod has very many these days, Dearie…!
On the subject of animals, whilst mowing the lawn yesterday,I discovered two molehills about 30 inches high (or maybe they were only 3 inches high, I did not measure them) gracing my garden. This has been an ongoing battle for years now. I tried metal traps, gas, water. I read aloud to them from “Diseases and Parasites of Subterranean Mammals”, but I could hear them chuckling over it in their earthy voices. We had an agreement that they would not venture out from the flowerbeds, but they have breached this contract. I think I’ll take them to court.
We just had to scramble to turn in our ballots while moving my parents out of there house. I was “on-the-fence” because I’d voted for our fuckingfuckedfuckermotherraper Congress Critter The Honorable Rick Larsen for decades, while beating my breast over his relationship with Israel, as a servant to Zion.. I had to Not Vote for an Israel servant this time.
I called his office and told his young,possibly drunk intern, according to scandals of the past…………..
I told this 20ish girl/woman that after all these years…,probably 20 years?……,that I first supported and then just voted for Rick Larsen. My journey going down the Painful Rabbit Hole towards Truth pretty much makes it impossible to VOTE as I once felt compelled, to hold back the Hounds Of Hell.
fuck i was such an easy tool
oh no…. mole moves house
Deer or dark roads? No lights. Many deer. And now coyotes. Cape Cod is the jungle, CT. I am all for deer hunting in Ohio because there are too many to count. Same on Cape Cod. It’s a jungle, I’m telling you! And Lyme disease is comfortably situated.
I’m fine, Suz! On the way to Munich, where I hope the weather is better. But I can’t dare complain when I hear what’s brewing in Hawaii.
“I just got my method ready to try, and deer start walking through my yard.”
This is just the sort of thing I praise the gods over. :)
Ironically, Suz, for the first time since Statehood, not only has the historical ‘Grand Rally’ been cancelled in Hilo, but, it’s being cancelled by the first Guv to be ousted…! ;-)
“In the interest of the safety, health and welfare of the people of Hawai‘i Island, I am calling upon the Democratic Party of Hawai‘i to cancel its Grand Rally scheduled for Friday, August 8 in Hilo. I do not do so lightly; I understand fully the history and tradition of this event. However, my primary responsibility is to ensure that residents stay safe.”
Gov. Neil Abercrombie in a media release
i hear that — i’m thankful my heat wave is broken for a bit and temps are more tolerable here… temps in teh 90′s can’t hold a candle to what tut and his fellow islanders are facing…
they should just postpone everything for a week ….
We really are in weekend mode already…! ;-)
Find the mole hole and stick a garden hose in and fill with water. they will come out then trap and leave at your local golf course.
Openhope, all the best for your moving project!
token’s giving me the evil eye — guess i had better take him out
g’nite all — happy dreams
I’ve had to confront extremely dark paintings my talented/true artist Mother created. We can’t ignore the Truth, After the fear,tears,anxiety,tsunami of emotions,..after that comes strength and clarity of emotion. Much more encompassing emotion than I used in my life. I tend more towards incrimination than inclusion.
Fuck, I know that’s deep. But, I’m wrapping my mother’s painting. A major voice you can’t even Google. A major player who would require me dedicating myself to bring her art into this space in time.
I’m having interest in all things 1960′s in our history. With all the implications if you’re paying attention to the releases of information.
All this stuff I’ve been amused by/frightened by/exploring life myself in those strange times. It was strange.
I considered declaring myself repub to vote in primaries this year. But when I called in ahead of time, they told me I wasn’t on the list.
I said that was impossible, here’s my card. They said they’d look into it.
When I went down there and showed them they were surprised.
They showed me as one struck off the list of registered voters, due to our recent law. I showed them on the card how I had registered BEFORE the cut off date. This is what surprised them. That I was BEFORE the date and still struck off. They said I MAY have to vote with a ‘provisional federal’ ballot. I said, this is y’all’s screw up, not mine.
When I voted yesterday, they let me w a regular – not federal – ballot. Like I could expect.
My voter card still says undeclared.
If this is any indication, there will be problems come November!
I tried the hose method, but they just donned their swimsuits and acted out “Beach, Blanket, Bingo”.
This is a good idea!
This is also a good idea!
Sweet dreams, Suz…!
*heh* Party-hearty, dewd(ette)…! ;-)
Thank you, Sanssouci. The hard part is I couldn’t throw the essence of these 2 people who were active intellects, all their lives. How do you discard? I thought I was a ruthless,angry bitch daughter who was worn down by needed to care for them for 8 years.
I was wrong.
I was their daughter amazed by the articles of their life, things I’d never seen. Discussions we’d never had. And now, it’s over, just guessing.
I’m going to inherit a silver serving spoon. Beaten and thin. It was owned by an actor, supposedly “a big talent” Robert Klein in Germany. It was the only thing that tied him to his family, it was his grandmother’s. I wanted Mom to let me take it, but she said it’s not time.
I’m sorry for your travails in government. I should warn you,..western states people are suspect of Kansas. In general.
Did you know that? Like, you’ll keep your women complacent, amirite??????
I’m slowly losing connectivity as we head into the foothills, so cheerio, all!
*ugh* Iselle is still a Cat. 1 hurricane…! Most predictions said she’d be T.S. by now…! 8-(
Sweet dreams, Suzanne and Token.
Leo is doing his Hunter Thing. It’s so much fun to watch him come into his own!! He’s a handsome cat! And he never threatens me or makes me feel that I’m at risk of being hurt by him anymore.
Cheerio. Sweet dreams, even though this is your morning.
Sweet Dreams aren’t for the Sleeping. :)
That’s really hard, not to be able to find out the history of all their stuff.
My mom died a couple years ago and us siblings got all the stuff. We decided on a process that we all agreed on and worked for us. But we had her and all her stuff we could ask about for the last twenty years. We could all talk out our stuff etc before she left. So it was so much easier when she did.
The sixties were a time of big change for the world. We are living through those now, too.
Last comment before I fade out – boy, have I been there! It really stirs up all sorts of emotions. When we cleaned out our parents’ home, I discovered the newspaper obit of my dad’s best friend, who had been like a second father to me. I just sobbed and sobbed. But, this too shall pass. On a lighter note, I’ll check out the German actor.
:) I like the way your mind works! Homeriod!
Congrats on the 99, open…! ;-)
As I compulsively dig deeper, my dad was not working for what I thought he was. Ergo, the spooks asking questions they don’t think children will hear.
Life is always a deeper and more interesting tapestry than we were trained to explore and embrace.
Very cool. He was a strong and true person.
We catch a lot of flak for being kansans. Some legitimate, like our current round of demogogues.
But by far the biggest is the Dorothy and Wizard of Oz jokes.
But everybody knows the wiz in the emerald city is probably a charlatan.
And the girl had all the courage and brains and heart she needed. The whole time. And she found her way home after all.
Is it true? Like in anything, some yes, some no. Sometimes we have to make stuff up to make sense out of whatever happened. Right? When we find out more later on, life gets richer, as you describe, but also more questions come. To me, that’s just the way it is. If we stay curious and engaged.
She can be a B*otch, open…! ;-)
My mother and father are still alive She’s 90, the artist. He’s 88, the technical writer.
in the “real world”, if one wants to go with Real World
fake rule wise………..kspopulist IS THE TRUE WINNER OF THIS NUMBERS GAME.
because, technically, 99 is an issue with me. It used to be 100.
so there’s that.
I want kspopulist to be the ” voice recognized”, because we’re all voices recognized because We Are The Voices Of The People.
Howard Zinn began this and we need to carry on.
karma. if karma is a true “thing” to consider….I question that. Karma is conveniently a TOOL. oy, i’m thinkin’ i’m maybe burnin’ in HELL
Heh. Good evening.
Someone’s still up. I did hours of sleep & woke up & can’t get back to sleep. Will hang out for awhile,
Okay. I’m still here. Let’s test Karma with Truth.
Israel was an Invention of the tapeworm Rothchilds . We are all dealing with the ramifications.
DEAL WITH IT. Israel is not what it was cracked up to be.
Hey. I’m not sure I’ll EVER get to sleep after the last 5 days!
That’s right up eCAHN’s alley, open…! ;-)
Sorry to go all aggressive. It’s been a tough few days.
I can do soft. Also, I appreciate your voice on FDL.
So, is it in your alley?
Im pretty sure it’s time to call Truth. However, I’m not sure that’s your job, might be mine……………
that’s so lame
Had a craftsman come over dinnertime to discuss the fine points of hanging a silk tapestry of Silk Road. One of those multitalented people who have mechanical, artistic, other skills I am so bereft of.
He’s also extremely smart, both intellectually and people-wise.
We got drinking wine & discussing the sad state or world events. Several glasses of wine later, much later, he left, I had a salad, konked out. Which brings us up to the hour.
What I haven’t asked him in detail about is that he is now working for a corporation. Said corp. makes theater sets, for Bway for example. In a huge tent, located about 20 miles south of here and 60 miles north of Times Square. He told me a few tales, but I don’t have details, like how many workers, what will they do in the winter, name of company, etc.
Love people like him. So much that is interesting to talk about that the conversation jumps around and only later do you realize that you didn’t get the fundamentals, in lieu of more interesting tidbits.
Sorry openhope that karma is not your friend these days. Hope that changes soon.
I’m sure that comment came out completely different the commenter meant. I am the commenter. It only just hit me that what I said was Rude.
It’s a problem I have and I’m sorry for that.
I am still collecting info on origins of Israel. Here’s a Meyssan version on the origin of Zionism. Has twists & turns I didn’t know before.
So many versions, I have little fundamental knowledge, still assessing all ideas to see what makes sense. Need to find good book on subject.
Thank you, dear. I needed that!
It’s a community that makes life interesting.
My take on the culture wars here in ks – the short version – is that all this demogoguery is short lived. The old testament thumpers are dying out. The new testament thumpers are divided. The waves of leg and court cases etc shutting down planned parenthood, the goosing of people to get guns, the cuts in budgets is all that war, between those people. Fed by the misinfo generated far, far away, by evil wizzes with greed in their eyes.
The pagans and other affiliations, meanwhile are growing up like weeds. Fifty -thirty-twenty years ago, this was a great place to come and raise your kids up. But they got bored by the time they were 12 and moved away when they could. Or went to the cities, where it is harder to live, but at least you can be yourself. No more wars over dogma and control and the shame and guilt crap.
The old testament thumpers and their greedy associates will soon be like dust in the wind. And that’s why they batten down the hatches. They know it too. I can’t tell you how many old churches around here that have been repurposed into homes, law offices, and art collectives.
The other night, I met a couple gals that are running our third burlesque troop in town. Yanno, where the women are the center of attention and run the house, and instruct the audience in how to behave. ‘Hootin and hollerin is encouraged, but you will not touch the ladies and they will not accept your money!’ They know exactly what they are doing. Pretty cool.
Speaking of books, reading Agee on CIA. MUST READ. Diff betw Agee & other books is that he was there, 12 years–60ish to 70ish, long time ago, reveals all. Became disillusioned, wrote tell-all book, published in UK in 1975 (used copies available).
Nothing has changed except technology. Must read to understand how subversive CIA is, how it worms its way into most petty of leftie orgs.
The lesson for today is that lefties think spying, infiltration, other dastardly deeds, were invented yesterday, but they were actually developed by cave people to protect hunting grounds, ag plots, dwellings, from real or imagined threats.
How is demagoguery dying out if OT jerks can still make points after x,000 years?
While I’m at it, where did I store my dinosaur saddle? I thought I left it in the shed, but upon cleaning that out, I find saddle is not there.
You and me both, sister. I can’t bring myself to believe that my ignorance of considering converting to being a JEW could lead me to these Goya troubles of consciousness.
I WANTED TO BECOME A JEW. The people closest to me in my confused young life were JEWS. JEWS who would NEVER bomb Palestine.
So, who the fuck are these JEWS?!!!
Is that an inappropriate question?? Because, I can’t ask that of my childhood friends and their parents. They’re dead.
Who are the Jews committing genocide on the People of Palestine? Please, I want to know. Did I break bread with them?
I am still collecting info on origins of Israel.
Palestine before 1948…!
I’m laughing out loud. I’m intriqued about the “Third Burlesque Group”. Very fun!
How do they do it? Fear mostly. And you know as well as any, fear is a liar.
There was a great photo going the rounds of a woman w/a walker, wearin a smile and her sweatshirt says, “Putin is my sex slave”.
I laughed for a week.
Yeah, I’ve been going there and it’s a horrific new vision of every motherfucking thing I’ve ever been taught and trained to believe. With all my Goya heart. I kept the “Myth” going for 50 years, in my own mind.
what a dumb c*nt
*Edited and freed from filter*
I’m sorry I’m still the problem child I was years ago. I plugged your filters with the c@nt word. I don’t know why I need to free that word. Problem Child
I’d totally do Putin!!
“A country without people for a people without a country.”
One of the three lies for the foundation of Israel. Can’t remember the other two right now.
Liked the symphony orch shot in particular. Everyone “knows” the A-rabs have no culture. None of their own, too primitive to be aware of HIGH western culture.
No appreciation for Islamic preservation of Greek civilization.
But I rant.
Got the fear thing on 9/11. Was 5 miles away. Didn’t make me more afraid.
What scared the bejessus out of me was nuke drills, duck & cover, in elementary school in 1950s.
Terrorism is like acne. Will die of it if don’t die of something else first.
Turns out getting nuked is now on front burner. Should have taken 1950s model for life instead of being diverted into thinking that MAD made the world “safe.” U.S. nukers much in evidence these days.
Excuse me. Are we having a meeting of the minds and freeing a simple complicated word from the filters of Male Oriented Language. Yes!!
Or, is there a glitch??
and once again my dreams of equality are smashed into the image of male comfort?
so, can we say c*nt? Probably pushing it. Right?
*Edited and freed from filters*
Rant on, baybay. I hear so few true arguments, you’re right on!
I’ve heard of this, not read it. Will go check it out.
There was an influential zionist – can’t think of his name – basically applied Weberian social models to Judaism, around WWI. These ideas got picked up and applied, as central bit to kibbutz models. Rest is history.
Idea being the socialist ideas of Weber were fine, but as he suggested lacked a ‘spiritual basis/goal’. Insert Judaism. Result is strong, hard-working, group thinking, success driven, waspy-jews.
Like the people who build settlements on other’s land, etc. Hard nuts to crack. They won’t change their mind unless shown what they are doing doesn’t get them the results they want.
You were that close during 911?
When you said you worked on Wall Street I didn’t connect to literally Working On Wall Street.
I’m so sorry. I was assuming the “Wall Street” without the physical.
Iran & Russia only voices of sanity today. Maybe China, but Chinese English language TV not well enough produced to allow U.S.ian to gain info.
Craftsman I referred to earlier is married to Taiwanese woman. Interesting interjection of realkultur into everyday life.
WRT tapestry (2′X3′), I was explaining at party that it was Silk Road, when Iullia came up & pointed out that’s what Chinese characters on tapestry said.
I think we’re facing a huge conflict between people of the Judaism faith and the powers that corrupt that faith. We’re all dealing with it. How do you tell your Jewish friends who pretend nothing’s happening that All Hell’s Breaking Loose for children who have no frame work for All Hell Breaking Loose because YOU psycho assholes just unleashed this on them.
fuck why the fuck are you doing this, Israel?
children need their families, you know that. Mothers need their children, you know that. Fathers need to keep their families safe,you know that. The Jewish People need to free themselves from the claws of evil, you know that.
I agree. It’s hard to know where to focus. And that’s the Key Indicator for a ” We’re Fucking With You” event.
Tried to figure out what happened on 9/11 in months that followed. Went the “official” story route. Was a good diversion bc I learned much about Islam & other matters I had no connection to.
Do you know that Islam won the Crusades, for example?
Now know official version the big lie. 9/11 in 5 minutes.
Best explanation I have found. 46 drills.
Possible terror alert. Intel sez that Ukies plan to bomb water purification plants to release chlorine, killing x,000. Blame Rusksies.
Time to turn in again, I think.
Be well, and don’t let the bed bugs bite.
It didn’t make you more afraid. I’m certain you are more informed than most – which allays many fears off the bat – and have experience with your own sceptical mind that is used to chewing on things. These two things put you far ahead of most who had no idea how to assess so many ‘new unknowns’.
MAD made people feel safer. Like w/ cartoons as spy vs spy? I can see that. But wasn’t it really Sean Connery and all his gadgets? :-)
The town I live in was the one prominently displayed in The Day After. The silos got emptied over a decade ago. No longer being a target makes for easier breathing. Now, with potentials for ‘loose nukes’ increasing every year, I figure everybody in US has an equal chance. If you live in a city, you’re more likely to be instantly vaporized. If on the outskirts of a targeted city, we’ll die slowly from fallout. If in the country, still more slowly. But the media doesn’t talk about these things so freely anymore. Fear has another name/
Day After must view.
Went down into silo in AZ, near UAZ. Thought it was time warp, ca 1999. Had I only had perfect future vision.
I know the Crusades are a dark and twisted example of Why We’re DNA Fucked Up. According to my version. I always assumed I was destined to die badly do to my temperament ! :)
Sweet dreams, eCAHNomics. better yet, quiet sleep.
