1992 Tribute Concert

Contains this amazing rendition of 'Somebody to Love' performed by George Michael.
Again, a phenomenal talent who did NOT lip sync.
He had the range to sing this song, which I imagine few do...Freddie Mercury had the most unusual voice, and Queen songs are difficult to reproduce because of his distinct sound.
It was a tribute, and a benefit for Aids awareness, with various singers performing Queens songs, with Queen as the band. This is another clip that gives me goosebumps. George Michael sings the song true to the original, and at one point you see the always stoic Brian May with a big grin on his face. Magic.
Lets remember, when Freddie died of Aids, it was still a time when famous people who were infected, did NOT come out with the news.
So sad, with todays medications, he may well have lived a long long time.
Back then, not so.
Watch the crowd...the amazing response and simultaneous hand claps...and then the
Freddie downward treble...loooovvvveeeee......


Any trouble with Youtube links, just go to the damned site...
Love em and hate em..

Live Aid 1985

If you are a Queen fan, you will LOVE this clip.
Gives me goosebumps when I see it, every time. They absolutely wowed the crowd, and according to Bob Geldoff they were THE best act that day.
If you aren't familiar with Queen, and especially Freddie Mercury, watch and see what a real talent looks like singing live, NOT LIP SYNCING and understand my utter contempt for the Britney Spears of the world..
This is live. God I still miss Freddie Mercury.

Utah: Where the Bird and the Antelope play

Pictures courtesy of a web search....not my work sad to say.
For both of these sightings, we were on the way to Wendover Nevada from Salt Lake City...I was startled by the shock of color..and suddenly saw many of them, sitting in reeds by a small pond.
Marc wasn't sure what they were, I just did a websearch and found the pic of them, and incidentally, the picture was taken just north of the airport here in Salt Lake.
I'm not sure where we were when I saw the birds...Yellow Headed Blackbirds.
I also saw my very first Antelope in the wild. It was on the side of the highway out to Wendover, before we hit the Salt Flats. Again, just gazing out the window, and presto!!! There it was just chillin' in the desert flora.
I surely wish I'd been able to see an Elk, maybe another time.
The pic I have here of the antelope was also taken near the Salt Flats.
These are actually Pronghorn Antelope, a species that exists only in North America.
I've never seen an antelope outside a zoo, and its the first new bird I've I.D'd in quite some time.

Neda....a symbol of us all

Watching this young woman die, was like watching myself...she could have been me...or you...anyone at all.
This poor child will be the symbol of the rising struggles in Iran.
Another thing I realized quite quickly, the signs people are holding during the protests are in english.
They want the world to know...they NEED the world to know what they are saying..so we can understand what they are fighting and dying for.

TEHRAN, Iran (CNN) -- The young woman who last weekend emerged as a powerful symbol of opposition to the Iranian government embraced life in many ways, but there was little about her that would have led her friends to predict she would become a martyr, one of them told CNN.

Neda Agha-Soltan, 26, enjoyed music and was looking forward to learning how to play the piano.

Neda Agha-Soltan, 26, rose to prominence within hours after a crudely shot video documenting her final moments was uploaded to the Web shortly after she died Saturday from a single gunshot wound to the chest.

"It's heartbreaking," President Obama said Tuesday in Washington, referring to the video of the woman the world has come to know simply as Neda, which means "divine calling" in Farsi. "And I think anyone who sees it knows there's something fundamentally unjust about it."

Since Saturday, the Iranian government has sought to minimize the impact of her death, but one of her friends on Tuesday described her to CNN in an attempt to inject life and context into what has been -- for much of the rest of the world -- just a few seconds of powerful, if grainy, video.

Much about her remains unclear, but here is what CNN has learned from at least one source:

The second of three children, Neda lived with her parents in a middle-class neighborhood east of Tehran.

She was a happy, positive person. Though she studied philosophy and religion at the Azad Islamic University, she was more spiritual than religious. She also loved music. She once studied violin but had given it up and was planning to take up piano next. She had just bought a piano, but it had not yet been delivered.

Her demeanor was typically calm, even serene, but she had a quirky, playful sense of humor. A friend recalled that once, when Neda was visiting her friend's house, she picked up a white Teddy bear, took off her big, purple-studded earrings and put them on the bear. Then she removed a necklace from around the neck of a friend and put it around the bear's neck, taking delight in the bear's transformation.

She liked to travel, having visited Turkey three months ago with a tour group. And she believed in human rights, her friend said.
That may have explained why she was at an anti-government demonstration in Tehran on Saturday afternoon. After being stuck in traffic for more than an hour inside a Peugeot 206 -- a subcompact with a poorly working air conditioner -- Neda and a family friend decided to get out of the car for some fresh air.

Shaky video captured on a cell phone shows her walking with the man, a teacher of music and philosophy, near an anti-government demonstration.

The two are near where protesters were chanting in opposition to the supreme leader, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, whose calls for an end to anti-government demonstrations have sparked defiance across the nation.

Neda, wearing a baseball cap over a black scarf, a black shirt, blue jeans and tennis shoes, does not appear to be chanting and seems to be observing the demonstration.

Suddenly, Neda is on the ground -- felled by a single gunshot wound to the chest. Several men kneel at her side and place pressure on her chest in an attempt to stop the bleeding. "She has been shot! Someone, come and take her!" shouts one man.

By now, Neda's eyes have rolled to her right; her body is limp.

Blood streams from her mouth, then from her nose. For a second, her face is hidden from view as the phone camera goes behind one of the men. When Neda's face comes back into view, it is covered with blood.

Then, the teacher pleads with her by name. "Neda, do not be afraid, do not be afraid," he repeats.

Another man curses as the first man begins to wail. "Somebody come and get her in a car and take her away!" a voice pleads.

She was taken to a nearby hospital and, within a day, she was buried at Behesht Zahra, the city's largest Muslim cemetery, on the outskirts of the capital.

A friend of hers interprets the fact that her body was released so quickly as a tacit acknowledgment by the government that the killing was carried out by government forces. That theory is supported by the fact that Iran's strict gun-control laws mean private citizens cannot carry firearms, the friend said.

Since her death, public displays of mourning for Neda have been prohibited, the friend said.

A gathering of about 60 people at a mosque was broken up by members of the Basij, the pro-government vigilantes blamed for much of the violence against demonstrators, according to New York Times columnist Roger Cohen, who observed the incident. iReport.com: Share your views on unrest in Iran

Neda's family has not been allowed to post a black banner of mourning outside the family's house, the friend said.

Yet Neda's influence may not diminish soon. Under Muslim tradition, the seventh and 40th days after someone dies are devoted to mourning and reflection.


Doesn't appear to be functioning, at least from where I'm online here in Utah...

Pay for your own murder weapon??????????


Morgue Demands 'Bullet Fee' for BodyAOL News
posted: 12 HOURS 29 MINUTES AGOcomments: 442filed under: Iran, World (June 23) - The family of a 19-year-old Iranian man killed during clashes between security forces and protesters in Tehran said morgue officials demanded they pay a $3,000 "bullet fee" before they were allowed to take his body, The Wall Street Journal reported Tuesday.
The fee was assessed to pay for the bullet that killed Kaveh Alipour, relatives told the newspaper. But Alipour's father told officials that all of his property combined wouldn't even amount to $3,000. He argued his case and said that since he was also a veteran of the Iran-Iraq war, the fee should be waived.
Morgue officials agreed, but demanded the family bury Alipour outside of Tehran. His body was eventually taken to Rasht, where the family has relatives.
Alipour was shot in the head on Saturday when he was returning from acting class -- apparently an innocent bystander during the protests in Iran's capital city. He was to be married later this month.
"He was a very polite, shy young man," a neighbor said.

The Rockies and The Great Salt Lake

Roses....freshly cut

His front yard is awash with Rose bushes. Every color, every size.
They are old bushes, with huge fragrant blooms.
We went outside yesterday and today and cut blooms to put in a vase.
They make the room smell heavenly. There is no comparison between purchased cut roses and freshly cut ones from the yard.
The perfume is unbelievable.

Money out of Gold

He took me to a local refinery where I sold my gold crown that I had removed, and mine and ex's wedding bands.
Got good money for them too.
What else was I to do with them? I hadn't worn my ring for a year or more towards the end of our living together, and he didn't want his when he left..
I ended up getting just what we paid for them in 1992
Now thats a good thing.
Any money comes in handy, thats for sure.
Sad...but I didn't feel the slightest twinge about it.

In Utah

After a very, very long trip.
Arrived at FLA at 3:20
Flight delayed till 5:10
On tarmac until almost 6:40
Needless to say I missed my connection in Chicago.
I stood at the Southwest counter and cried. No sobs, just tears rolling down my cheeks.
Thank God they gave me a hotel voucher for Hampton Inn.
I called DH and gave him the bad news..sigh..
Got to the hotel where I had to get toiletries from the front desk (our luggage was kept at the airport) , showered and climbed into bed.
I tossed and turned, ended up getting about 3-4 hours sleep.
I was dressed and in the lobby at 4am to catch the shuttle to the airport.
Plane left at 6am for Denver, yes another stop, then on to Salt Lake where I finally arrived about 10:30 am.
I met a nice couple who had also missed their Salt Lake connection...it was comforting to have the company.
But I'm here now thank God, and slept good last night.

Terrifying stuff

This crazed whack job is going to cause a nuclear war.

N. Korea May Fire Missile Toward Hawaii By HYUNG-JIN KIM, AP

South Korea (June 18) - North Korea may fire a long-range ballistic missile toward Hawaii in early July, a Japanese news report said Thursday, as Russia and China urged the regime to return to international disarmament talks on its rogue nuclear program.
The missile, believed to be a Taepodong-2 with a range of up to 4,000 miles, would be launched from North Korea's Dongchang-ni site on the northwestern coast, said the Yomiuri daily, Japan's top-selling newspaper. It cited an analysis by the Japanese Defense Ministry and intelligence gathered by U.S. reconnaissance satellites.
The missile launch could come between July 4 and 8, the paper said.
In this photo taken on Monday, June 15, 2009, and released by Korean Central News Agency via Korea News Service in Tokyo, North Korean military participants gather at a rally at the Kim Il Sung Square in Pyongyang, North Korea. Tens of thousands of North Koreans rallied in Pyongyang on Monday to condemn the U.N. rebuke of the country's latest nuclear test amid concern the communist regime could conduct another one. (AP Photo/Korean Central News Agency via Korea News Service) ** JAPAN OUT **

While the newspaper speculated the Taepodong-2 could fly over Japan and toward Hawaii, it said the missile would not be able to hit Hawaii's main islands, which are about 4,500 miles (7,200 kilometers) from the Korean peninsula.
A spokesman for the Japanese Defense Ministry declined to comment on the report. South Korea's Defense Ministry and the National Intelligence Service — the country's main spy agency — said they could not confirm it.
Tension on the divided Korean peninsula has spiked since the North conducted its second nuclear test on May 25 in defiance of repeated international warnings. The regime declared Saturday it would bolster its nuclear programs and threatened war in protest of U.N. sanctions taken for the nuclear test.
U.S. officials have said the North has been preparing to fire a long-range missile capable of striking the western U.S. In Washington on Tuesday, Gen. James Cartwright, vice chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, said it would take at least three to five years for North Korea to pose a real threat to the U.S. west coast.
President Barack Obama and South Korean President Lee Myung-bak met in Washington on Tuesday for a landmark summit in which they agreed to build a regional and global "strategic alliance" to persuade North Korea to dismantle all its nuclear weapons. Obama declared North Korea a "grave threat" to the world and pledged that the new U.N. sanctions on the communist regime will be aggressively enforced.
In Seoul, Vice Unification Minister Hong Yang-ho told a forum Thursday that the North's moves to strengthen its nuclear programs is "a very dangerous thing that can fundamentally change" the regional security environment. He said the South Korean government is bracing for "all possible scenarios" regarding the nuclear standoff.
The independent International Crisis Group think tank, meanwhile, said the North's massive stockpile of chemical weapons is no less serious a threat to the region than its nuclear arsenal.
It said the North is believed to have between 2,500 and 5,000 tons of chemical weapons, including mustard gas, phosgene, blood agents and sarin. These weapons can be delivered with ballistic missiles and long-range artillery and are "sufficient to inflict massive civilian casualties on South Korea."
"If progress is made on rolling back Pyongyang's nuclear ambitions, there could be opportunities to construct a cooperative diplomatic solution for chemical weapons and the suspected biological weapons program," the think tank said in a report released Thursday.
It also called on the U.S. to engage the North in dialogue to defuse the nuclear crisis, saying "diplomacy is the least bad option." The think tank said Washington should be prepared to send a high-level special envoy to Pyongyang to resolve the tension.
In a rare move, leaders of Russia and China used their meetings in Moscow on Wednesday to pressure the North to return to the nuclear talks and expressed "serious concerns" about tension on the Korean peninsula.
The joint appeal appeared to be a signal that Moscow and Beijing are growing impatient with Pyongyang's stubbornness. Northeastern China and Russia's Far East both border North Korea, and Pyongyang's unpredictable actions have raised concern in both countries.
After meetings at the Kremlin, Chinese President Hu Jintao joined Russian President Dmitry Medvedev in urging a peaceful resolution of the Korean standoff and the "swiftest renewal" of the now-frozen talks involving their countries as well as North and South Korea, Japan and the United States.
"Russia and China are ready to foster the lowering of tension in Northeast Asia and call for the continuation of efforts by all sides to resolve disagreements through peaceful means, through dialogue and consultations," their statement said.
The comments — contained in a lengthy statement that discussed other global issues — included no new initiatives, but it appeared to be carefully worded to avoid provoking Pyongyang. In remarks after their meetings, Medvedev made only a brief reference to North Korea, and Hu did not mention it.
South Korea's Lee said Wednesday in Washington that was essential for China and Russia to "actively cooperate" in getting the North to give up its nuclear program, suggesting the North's bombs program may trigger a regional arms race.
"If we acknowledge North Korea possessing nuclear programs, other non-nuclear countries in Northeast Asia would be tempted to possess nuclear weapons and this would not be helpful for stability in Northeast Asia," Lee said in a meeting with former U.S. officials and Korea experts, according to his office.
Associated Press writers Shino Yuasa in Tokyo, Jae-soon Chang and Ji-youn Oh in Seoul and Mike Eckel in Moscow contributed to this report.

Countdown clock is wrong?

Don't ask me how I messed up...and it didn't become very obvious until just now.
I am leaving at 430, so its really a countdown to when my flight leaves, vs when I'm actually standing in the Salt Lake City airport hugging my man.
Oh well...lol...

Morning faithful

Well I felt crappy yesterday. Sore throat and yes yes YES....I admit it, a hangover.
I was downright exhausted after those three days of intense work..so I dran
Also had a sore throat and was all froggy voiced etc.
Last evening I ordered Papa Johns "Meats" special, ate till I was stuffed and took a cold tablet..climbed in bed.

I'm going to start packing soon as I finish my coffee, and I also need to go to the bank and get some money.
Why not, I don't have enough left to pay the property taxes, and its almost the end of my buffer zone of money.
Its going to get to the point where I can't make my credit card payments soon...
At that point, I don't know what I'll do.
Prayers for me would be greatly appreciated.
Don't want to be rich, just want to stop worrying all the time about money.

It should be sledgehammer...but it ain't
will work on that

Sex changes everything Part 2

When you are my age...50..sex is nothing new.
When you are my age, sex is something you've experienced and learned.
When you are my age, sex is something blase....unless you've fallen in love at my age.
Sex is a wonder, a passion and a gift.
Falling in love in your fifties is a gift that cannot be reproduced.
Falling in love in your fifties with someone who acts like a damn kid just like you do...
Its a wonderful , blissful thing.
And a gift that noone can reproduce.

Regular readers of my bloggy

I always wonder why regs don't comment..
Only Rhapsody does, and damn I've known her since I was four.
I guess its ok if you don't comment.....
I'm guessing some folks find my life interesting enough to keep coming back and reading.

He's my Eddy

This is Edward....relaxing in one of the recliners.

Sex changes everything

You don't see that when you're 16.
But it does.
Sex changes everything at that age.
I'd protect her if I could, but I can't.
Sex changes everything at 16.

Stephen Colbert ROCKS!!!!

You can watch him on Comedy Central, or at his website...www.colbertnation.com
The full Iraq episode is on that site already.
I really adore Colbert...and his show is worth seeking out.
I think those men and women in Iraq liked him...lol...
What do you guys think?

Monday, June 08, 2009

It's definitely not phone sex

When you're in your fifties like we are, to have romance and passion and silly nonsense like a pair of teens, that's a gift.
Being apart, and having our reuniting only days away, that brings out the sixteen year old in both of us.
Thank God!!!!!

Lil one

I was a wall flower.
I had a sister a year older than me who was a cheerleader...popular...and in with the IN crowd.
I had a small circle..
I had a friend, a good friend , who suddenly stopped talking to me.
We were lab partners in science, but she suddenly wouldn't talk to me.
I asked her why.
She told me she was trying to be popular, and if she was talking to me, she couldn't be.
Lil one is popular. She has tons of friends, socializes and has an active life with her friends.
I'm so happy.
I remember when she was a baby, holding her in my arms..and praying..don't let her be like me.
Let her be different than me.
And she is.
I thank God for that every day.
I wouldn't wish my childhood on anyone..the shyness, the lack of dates.
Noone asked me to the prom, I never went out on a date in highschool..noone asked me out.
I was nothing...and it lead to my lifelong belief that I was homely and worthless.
Who cared if I was smart...funny.....any of the things I am.
Noone did.
I followed a star...and I was nothing but a blot on mankind.

YouTube SUCKS!!!!!!!!

I was looking for a video to add...and haven't done that in a while.
All embedding for music videos appears to be gone now...even for ancient stuff like Devo....
When you embed, you link directly to YouTube, so its not like you're pretending its yours...and I'm certainly not making any money on it, nor trying to.
That means all the videos I've added in the past are likely not working..
That just sucks, and so does YouTube
Whats the harm in me wanting to embed a video on my blog?
Got me
The other videos work, cartoons and home videos like Snowball..thank goodness.


How could I have left out The Tubes???
I saw them at the Palladium, don't remember the year...prolly around 1977 or so..
A concert??? HELL NO...it was an extravaganza ...a performance...an act like one I've not seen since..
I saw the Tubes again in Maryland when I was living in Washington D.C. prolly around 1980...
This is a pic of the fabulous Fee Waybill playing his rock star character, Quay Lewd..lol lol
And the first song I heard of theirs, White punks on dope...I was sold
I had no idea till I searched a bit for them just now, that Fee was back with the Tubes and they still tour..as a hobby...Contemporaries of The Clash, and I'm sure an inspiration to those that followed.
Sorry for you if you don't know this band.

White Punks On Dope

Teenage had a race for the night time
Spent my cash on every high I could find
Wasted time in every school in L.A.
Getting loose, I didn't care what the kids say

We're white punks on dope
Mom & Dad moved to Hollywood
Hang myself when I get enough rope
Can't clean up, though I know I should
White punks on dope
White punks on dope

Other dudes are living in the ghetto
But born in Pacific Heights don't seem much betto

We're white punks on dope
Mom & Dad live in Hollywood
Hang myself when I get enough rope
I can't clean up, though I know I should
White punks on dope
White punks on dope

I go crazy 'cause my folks are so fucking rich
Have to score when I get that rich white punk itch
Sounds real classy, living in a chateau
So lonely, all the other kids will never know

We're white punks on dope
Mom & Dad live in Hollywood
Hang myself when I get enough rope
Can't clean up, though I know I should
White punks on dope
White punks on dope

The Clash

Hands down, my favorite punk band, altho I don't really think of them as punk.
If they were around today, they would likely be considered grunge/alt or something like that.
Joe Strummer died way to damn young of a heart attack....
Considering the presence of a Buzzcocks post and song on my bloggy...ya figgered I liked punk? LOL..
I have a Buzzcocks Tshirt, and the kids that pass me when I'm wearing it...oye the looks I get..LOL

Clampdown (Strummer/Jones)

Hey, hey!
the kingdom is ransacked
the jewels all taken back
and the chopper descends
they're hidden in the back
with a message on a half-baked tape
with the spool going round
saying im back here in this place
and i could cry
and there's smoke you could click on

What are we gonna do now?
Taking off his turban, they said, is this man a Jew?
’Cos working for the clampdown
They put up a poster saying we earn more than you!
When we're working for the clampdown
We will teach our twisted speech
To the young believers
We will train our blue-eyed men
To be young believers

The judge said five to ten but I say double that again
I'm not working for the clampdown
No man born with a living soul
Can be working for the clampdown
Kick over the wall 'cause government's to fall
How can you refuse it?
Let fury have the hour, anger can be power
D'you know that you can use it?

The voices in your head are calling
Stop wasting your time, there's nothing coming
Only a fool would think someone could save you
The men at the factory are old and cunning
You don't owe nothing, so boy get runnin'
It's the best years of your life they want to steal

But, you grow up and you calm down and
You're working for the clampdown
You start wearing the blue and brown and
You're working for the clampdown
So you got someone to boss around
It makes you feel big now
You drift until you brutalize
You made your first kill now

In these days of evil presidentes
Working for the clampdown
But lately one or two has fully paid their due
For working for the clampdown
Ha! Gitalong! Gitalong!
Working for the clampdown
Ha! Gitalong! Gitalong!
Working for the clampdown

Yeah I’m working hard in Harrisburg
Working hard in Petersburg
Working for the clampdown
Working for the clampdown
Ha! Gitalong! Gitalong
Begging to be melted down
Gitalong, gitalong
And I give away no secrets – ha!
More work

Mott the Hoople

Ian Hunter leadman...another group that I listened to as a teen
I really developed a fondness for the non mainstream genres of the time. Some Glam..and as for PUNK...YES!!!!!!!
I was in love with punk from my first time of hearing God save the Queen, I wanna be sedated was a song played at the club I went to every weekend...and that pulsing angst...
I went on to love grunge, now I listen to a vast variety but with a particular fondness for alt metal..and alt period..

All the way from Memphis

Forgot my six-string razor - hit the sky
Half way to Memphis 'fore I realised
Well I rang the information - my axe was cold
They said she rides the train to Oreoles

Now its a mighty long way down the dusty trail
And the sun burns hot on the cold steel rails
'N I look like a bum 'n I crawl like a snail
All the way from Memphis

Well I got to Oreoles y'know - it took a month
And there was my guitar, electric junk.
Some spade said "Rock'n'rollers, you're all the same.
Man that's your instrument." I felt so ashamed.

Now its a mighty long way down rock'n'roll
Through the Bradford Cities and the Oreoles
'N you look like a star but you're still on the dole
All the way from Memphis

Yeah it's a mighty long way down rock'n'roll From the Liverpool docks to the Hollywood Bowl
'N you climb up the mountains 'n you fall down the holes
All the way from Memphis

Yeah its a mighty long way down rock'n'roll
As your name gets hot so your heart grows cold
'N you gotta stay young man, you can never be old
All the way from Memphis

Yeah its a mighty long way down rock'n'roll
Through the Bradford Cities and the Oreoles
'N you look like a star but you're really out on parole!
All the way from Memphis

Music I grew up on..

Marc Bolan of T Rex..Died too young.

You're so sweet, you're so fine
I want you all and ev'rything just to be mine
'Cos you're my baby, 'cos you're my love
Oh girl I'm just a jeepster for your love

You slide so good with bones so fair
You've got the universe reclining in your hair
'Cos you're my baby, yes you're my love
Oh girl I'm just a jeepster for your love

Just like a car you're pleasing to be hold
I'll call you Jaguar if I may be so bold
'Cos you're my baby, 'cos you're my love
Oh girl I'm just a jeepster for your love - oh

The wild winds blow upon your frozen cheeks
The way you flip your hip it always makes me weak
'Cos you're my baby, 'cos you're my love
Oh girl I'm just a jeepster for your love - oh

Your motivation is so sweet
Your vibrations are all burning up my feet
'Cos you're my baby, mmh, 'cos you're my love
Oh girl I'm just a jeepster for your love
I said girl I'm just a vampire for your love
I'm gonna suck you

Oh-o-o-o-o-o-o-o-o-o-o-o-o wow
A-a-a-a-a-a-a-a-a-a-a-a-a-a ow, wow yeah, vampire!

Fond memory # 1

I'm wearing a swimsuit and surf shoes, wandering thru the shallows on a Caribbean island.
I'm picking up shells, the girls are so young, and the day is gorgeous.
I pull a shell out of my pocket to admire it, and see lil feets sticking out!!!!!!
I place said critter back in the water.
It was a hell of a great day


Is money, truth is pain and tears.
Truth is love, passion pounding thru your veins.
Truth is the precious moments spent lying in my love's embrace.
Warmth and laughter.
Morning coffee.
Truth is no more or less than these.
And the love I share with Lil one and DH.
Different, but equally passionate.
Truth is, I'm blessed.
Now back to money....................

New link: Army of dude

I was looking at the 10 most controversial sites...don't remember if it was AOL or CNN...doesn't matter.
I clicked on Army of dude, another blog here on blogspot.
I added a link to my link section...and hope ya'll will check it out.
DH is a Vietnam vet..fought in the battle of Hue, Tet...and has the scars to prove it.
My daddy was a WWll vet...its something I'm intimately thoughtful of.
Iraq and Afghganistan are not my generation, but still a painful thing to me.
And this Blog is well written, funny sad and informative.
And likely how most of the men and women "fighting" feel.
War is hell???
Damn straight, especially when it was started by a sad ass sack of shit like Dubya, who failed to make sure our troops were cared for properly, and cared for upon return.
Oh wait, there is no return here, they keep going back "over there" At least when Daddy came home, it was for good, with no threat of being sent back.
Check it out faithful

A bit of Quagmire...

David Carradine

I was so shocked, and horrified about the ever changing story of his death.
From the initial "found dead of natural causes" to suddenly saying he was found with rope around his neck and genitals? Hands tied behind his back?
R.I.P dear David.
I adored you in Kung Fu, and Rhapsody and I used to watch it, then compare stories about what kind of adventures we would have him experience on the show.
Found you fascinating in Kill Bill 2....
Oddly enough, last night on one of the channels they had Revenge of the Nerds with Robert Carradine...haven't seen that movie in years.

Snowball the dancing Cockatoo

I smile whenever I see this, enjoy everyone.
Nothing like a dancing Cockatoo to cheer you up..lol..
