Waco: What is in the past is present. Part 1.

Didn’t he play the banjo or something?

Sadly, we lost B. B. King on Thursday night. Died in his sleep, age 89, taking a huge chunk of musical talent to the other side. Bet there is a epic jam session in heaven about now. Learned a lot of random facts about him from obits, I had no idea he was a certified […]

Dropping like flies…

Percy Sledge left us Tuesday, at 74 due to liver cancer.  Left behind a dozen kids, so he must’ve had a busy life. At this point I think we just need a general obit post, it’s getting hard to keep up. (At last look, Abe Vigoda’s still hanging in there….)

How Stupid Can You Get?…..

Malaysia Airlines 370, Please Phone Home!

OK Here’s my opinion on the whole Missing Plane thing. ( I know no one asked for it but here it is anyway) 1st. I do not think the Malaysian Officials are Hiding anything, I feel that they are In so far over their heads that they don’t know how to conduct this investigation and […]

All This…..

I don’t usual forward anything…..  Of course, I had to add my two cents worth when I forwarded it……  YES, I got replies!…..  Thought I would share the whole […]

“The Russians are Coming”….

During the “Cold War”, Nuclear, Biological, or Chemical attacks by Russia were a real threat…. The following is a tri-fold, card stock, six page, wallet size pamphlet issued to ALL Army personnel… This is the one I was issued in 1966…. It goes into detail of what to do when an attack is imminent, what […]
