Urgent weather bulletin from the channel 5 Kismet trackers

…A Defensive Prominence will be moving through the area over the next few days.

The front is being fueled by unusually low expectations and visibility reducing myopic perspectives.

Use caution if going outdoors at it is expected to rain vitriol then freeze over with resentment…

Odd Thought

Have you ever come down with a case of the giggles at the same time as your significant other is putting the Move on you. It sure explains why you never see baby clowns!



1983 Beirut barracks bombing

October 23, 2008

Today marked the 25th anniversary of the bombing.  241 US service-men were killed.  Please take a moment to remember them.  Then take a moment to remember all service-men & service-women who have sacrificed their time & lives for us.  Then tip one back for those who didn’t come back.

Laurie Anderson & Lou Reed

They are my all time favorite couple.  I would love to experience Lou’s New York City and have a conversation about anything with Laurie.

I subscribe to some blogs because they offer poetry, others for inspiring photos, many for shared life experiences. Well Melinda from Inspiraculum has Poetry, Photos, & my favorite experience, food. She posted a recipe for Bacon & Egg Pie. “If your happy and you know it clap your hands!” So, with much groveling & begging I got The Wife to make it for me. Why didn’t I cook the dish? I burn water that’s why. Moving right along . . Melinda calls for a single sheet of Puff Pastry. We, or The Wife that is, used two sheets so as to be enough for four servings. The dish was a Home Run and will be seen again and again for years to come. Thank you Melinda. *For those about to Indulge. We salute you*


And for Harley….

Pass it along…

December 8, 2007

So I’m out driving around today. Among the other cars on the road is a white truck hauling a horse trailer. It seems to be circling me; first on a side road then going the other direction. A while later I finally find it in front of me. When I catch up to it I see that there is a name written across the back. So surprised was I by the name I took a picture as evidence.


First allow me 3 statments:

1). I do not believe in luck

2). I believe coincidence is nothing more than 2 people wearing he same hat.

3). When it comes to our purpose and path Life will give to us: subtle road signs, nudges, & tests.

So this then is to Hawk, from Hawk’s Place. *May your Wind not carry you away but bear your weight when you wings are tired. May your Rain not drive you from the sky but cleanse your eyrie. May your Sun not bring drought to your land but reveal the ground beneath your talons. May your Land not be empty of quarry but forever provide for your needs. And may you know Solace when you want and Joy when you need.*

And if that just happened to be you on the road today… Speed the hell up! you’re blocking the road!
