Diplomad is well worth reading.  He runs the gamut from amusing and offbeat personal anecdotes from his long diplomatic career to insightful analysis of the current socio/political trainwreck that is our beleaguered nation.

He would write an excellent book/memoire if he chose to, and I hope he does.

Merry Holidays!!

Being PC in this new era...ugh.

Anyhow here is a pretty song, on a capitalist commercial, pretty female voices sooth my errant soul...

Does anyone remember my third album: "A Dog Will Lick Your Tears"?

Sales were lackluster.

Update: it did contain the critically acclaimed and melodic "If Every Turtle Made It To The Sea...(it would actually be a bad thing)" single. Never gained traction however.

Green Dot Money Cards

So I had a need to get a debit card at CVS, which I have done in the past.

This time however the card needed to be confirmed.

Weeeellll, o.k., a pain, but I made the call.

The level of information they claimed was federally required was stunning.

When I finally got an operator on the line I asked where she was and where the company was located.

She was in the Pillipines, the company HQ?

Correction: it is Monrovia, Ca, not Liberia, my mistake, the operator did not correct me. I will leave the below so as not appear to whitewash my mistakes. The scams are rife, however. Don't use them.

( NOT: MONROVIA AFRICA!!!! Please see above. Monrovia California affluent U.S. municipality. Scam notice still applies. Seems like a less than ideal Corporate letterhead to me none the less. Better Business Bureau advisories are easy to find.)

Sure, give Africa your social security number!!

Well it turns out to be linked to scamming, go figure. They will cut you a check or have 10 million if you just kick out a little.


Will email CVS, it's the only Mastercard/Visa they have, go Amex giftcard or go elsewhere, whatever you do...Don't take my word, go look, you can start here:

Jimmy is reviewing his ONE THOUSANDTH brew?

See for yourself:

They're what's for Dinner!!

(I need a better camera phone...They were delicious!!!)

Update: There were a couple of questions regarding the puppies. They were German Shepherd Dogs, their bitch of a mother is named Kitty.

Puppies! So adorable and so yummie!

We sauteed a delectable little number out of teeny tiny little medalians sliced from the pads of their little feet.

Their vitrious humor reminded me of some more exotic sushi that I have had, only with notes more Earthy...

Beyond Nixon

This scandal has enormous legs. The problem is timing and dissemination. The NRA and GOP etc. should be patient and methodical, and when the MSM ignores this, hardcore, which they will continue to do, and after enough info has leaked out (get a plumbing team and a slush fund just to get the info), spend a gazzillion on commercials to inform the public.

Spend some time looking into Fast and Furious.

Spend some time looking into the culture at the BATFE.

Spend some time looking into the culture regarding the choices of A.G. since Clinton.

One party continually chooses a dullard patsy for the job.

The other party gets excoriated by the media when they chose stronger more independent personalities.

Don't take my word for it, just think Reno and Holder vs. Ashcroft, and lament liberties lost under all three.

The Dems corrupt style is all consuming...The GOP's has vile implications as well...

"...snapping or popping sound" refers to your tendons. This medicine may weaken or ruin your tendons for months after taking.

I seem to have had the peeling skin and some abdominal issues, but the ears are getting worse, and that is why I started...

Oh--haven't slept much but when I did a dreamt a lovely melody, could just be me though...

Feel free to forward any info...
