IT’S FRIDAY THE 13TH!…….

I don’t guess you would actually call it a Holiday, but, oh well, it is in the Holiday season…….  I been out and about, but, with this touch of flu, or whatever bug I got, I’m going to call it an early day, watch a DVD for a while and then let it watch me […]

Friday, November 22, 1963 -er- 2013…..

It’s almost 50 years now since our Government went down the tubes (My Opinion)……  Where were you (if you were alive then)?……  It’s ironic that the 50 year mark of Kennedy’s Assassination hits on the exact same day of the week…..  My irony in the whole matter was that I was a junior in High […]

Rainy Day Women #12 & 35…..

We recently did our version of this Bob Dylan classic from the mid-’60’s…..  It’s fun to play and we added our own twist to it……  What really interests me most, though, is the title…..  There’s no mention of women, rainy or not, in the song or any numbers…..  By all rights the title of the […]

911…..

Sorry, I missed making a Post on “911” on the 11th due to the fact that I was in the middle of having some dental work done on the 10th and 12th…..  I don’t enjoy visits to the Dentist, and this one turned out to be a Lu-Lu with many problems (still going on as […]

Wind Of Change….

As I told our newest member, Maj7b5, we usually stay away from politics on this Blog…. Boy, am I having to eat those words, but, this came to me in the form of an e-mail to be forwarded on and on…. I hate to do e-mail chains, but, believe this as something important enough to […]

Australian President – #1 Asshole…..

I try to stay away from Politics as much as possible, but, this one just got to me in the wrong way….. Yes, it was a very sad event….. The taking of a life for no other reason than being bored, but for the President of Australia to blame the incident on our “Lack of […]

Book/DVD Report. The West Memphis 3

This is a subject that I have been interested in since the beginning 5 May 1993. I was actually in West Memphis, AR. and Memphis, TN exactly 7 days before the Murders and saw first hand what the atmosphere was like at that time. And Passing through many times in the ensuing years I have […]

Comedy Can Be Dangerous….

Here’s a little known fact I picked up while watching a retro TV station…..  The Three Stooges were the first comedy group to satirize Hitler in the 1930’s…..  In 1940, Hitler added The Three Stooges to his personal “Kill List”…..  It appears jokes can be Dangerous….  Better keep your April Fool’s Day pranks to a […]

Book Report: Area 51 An Uncensored History Of Americas TOP SECRET Military Base

Here’s another good read. The author gives us a very good insight into the “Base that Doesn’t Exist.” Many equate Area 51 with Aliens, that Is just a SMALL part of the Big Picture out in the Nevada Desert. The Base was started as “The Nevada Test Site” for somewhere that we could test our […]

Book Report: Legacy of Ashes An uncensored history of the CIA

Tagged as “This is the Book the CIA doesn’t want you to read.” Well I just finished this very fascinating book. I have always said ” If we actually knew what our government was really up to it would scare us to death” This is one of those books but, It actually didn’t scare me […]

08 Dec. 1980. 2012

Today we celebrate the Life of John Ono Lennon Taken from us 31 years ago so violently. I had just got home from Night School that Monday Night and turned on the TV waiting for the news, The NE Patriots were playing the Miami Dolphins. I was just half listening when Howard Cosell announced: Howard […]

7 Dec 1941 2012

Today we remember the brave souls who gave the ultimate sacrifice on that Day that will live in Infamy.          

Another 13th…….

I didn’t realize it was Friday the 13th until I turned on the TV to watch the news/weather…..  Usually F-13th’s have been fairly good to me…..  I don’t know about this one, just have to wait and see what comes around…..  Anyone have F-13th stories?…..

Jim Marshall – R.I.P.

On April 5th, 2012, the Music World lost one of it’s most famous people…..  Not for being a musician, but for the creation in his garage of one of the most famous line of guitar amps known…..  Made even more famous by it’s use by Seattle’s own Jimi Hendrix….  Again, we have to say goodbye […]
