And just when you thought... couldn't get anymore ridiculous.  Ladies and Gentlemen:

Crying Over You

Some artists are the soundtrack of our lives...

Rest in peace, dear man. I can close my eyes and imagine your voice gracing heaven.

I Was There

Such a privilege to see this man live.  Saw him at Expo 86 in Vancouver.  Brother Ray has no equal.

Lana Del Rey - Love

I continue to be impressed with the lovely and talented Ms. Del Rey. The appeal of this song to folks of a certain age should be evident.

Just go see it.  In IMAX.  Brilliant movie.  The soundtrack and cinematography are superlative.  Should be compulsory viewing for anyone born after 1980.

I had a recurring thought throughout this movie, that the horror of WW11 could almost be justified.  That is until Europe caved without resistance to the islamic invasion of their continent.   For shame.

I Was There

Palate cleanser.  More from concerts I've seen...Johnny Mathis:

Chances Are...

Begin The Beguin...

Matt and I saw Johnny Mathis at a dinner concert venue about 8 years ago.  He was fabulous.

Emmy nominated kid's show. What. The. Actual. Fuck.


 Evil lives. THIS is the face of our opponent. Reject them. Fight them with every weapon at your disposal, with every ounce of your strength.

Open Thread

I've written five posts for TCKT which I've deep-sixed because fast moving events make them redundant and stale. My head has been whirling with so much winning! Even Trump's crass comments about Mika and Joe made me laugh out loud. Unpresidential? Yep. Spot on? Yes. He's not afraid to roll around in the muck and I love it. Mika and Joe can kiss my deplorable tush.

CNN has been handed their hat and shown the door. It appears that AP is standing in line behind them. Good. Fox News can get in line too, AFAIC.

I've been working on building the new chicken coop. I'll post pictures when it's finally done. Between work and grandkids and my mom being sick I've been going 90 miles an hour lately. I had to plant my garden a THIRD time, after frost killed my first plants and hail hammered the second batch. I'm settling for a few tomatoes and some squash. All my fruit was killed by the frost. Bummer.

Matt, I just heard that you've been under the weather. I'm glad you're home now, and I'm sorry I missed commenting on FB. I've been rather disgusted with FB as of late, and been spending my time on other things. I'm working on a snail-mail letter to you and Fay, watch your post! Also, you all's grandkiddos are SO cute!  Little Miss M and wee Master L are adorable!

Dances, I'm so relieved that your news is good.

What I'm reading.

What's next.

What I've pre-ordered.

My state is working hard on overhauling the medicaid program. Unfortunately, they're considering across-the-board cuts with lifetime caps, which will be devastating to sick/disabled children who need ongoing care. I read the other day that 1/3 of my state's residents are enrolled in medicaid. That's ridiculous.  We need to get adults back to work instead of sitting on their backsides whining. We need tort reform and we need to prosecute those companies who overcharge the system. There are MANY things we can do to get costs down without abandoning sick kids.

So, what are you all up to?
