    We had a tough winter in the Great White North!

    This winter began October 23, 2017 with a blizzard that never really went away.

    In 2016 the winter began on November 18th with the same type of blizzard.

    I woke up this morning at 3.00 AM CST.

    It was below zero.

    Good Bread

    It’s the evening of December 31, 2017.  ‘Round these parts it’s currently nine degrees below zero outside, but it’s toasty warm in the kitchen now that the bread’s done.  Smells heavenly … a good loaf.  Must admit to the addition of pineapple juice, butter, ginger and brown sugar to the proofed yeast and flour that gives it an official Hawaiian bent, but it’s a loaf just the same.  The man in the house says dinner is around the bend now that I’ve told him the kitchen is his; he makes a mean cast-iron steak and mushroom gravy.

    We live in strange times

    Repubs run for the old days

    Days of slavery

    (Moore) is much less

    Families flourished

    America was once free

    Free to enslave some

    The Bird, the Bear, and the Elephant in the Room

    Above the dissonance the people sigh

    The Russians hacked the right wing’s foul deceit

    The Elephant inside the power lines

    Retorts to post his glower’d circus tweet

    I have resided at this turret for over 11 years.

    I keep to myself.

    Basically, I feel that most folks feel better that I keep to myself.

    Every time the Repubs and the Dems discuss problems with our nation and our children and....

    Well....those pols always stress the importance of education.

    New hampshire in autumn.jpg

    So the Spring has sprung

    And our Summer is just gone

    Autumn has arrived

    Red and yellow trees

    So many colors abound

    Dead leaves on the ground

    Dead leaves on the ground

    And dying leaves on the trees

    Crispness in the air

    Twelve hours of sun

    And then twelve hours of dark

    Equal Equinox

    But it rains all day

    So its gray or dark all day

    Unfair Equinox

    I can take half bad

    A dark icon of Jesus

    It is a pity

    That in this sad cap city

    There just is no truth

    And so it has been

    For over two hundred years

    Just a DC swamp

    He shall drain the swamps

    So sez our esteemed leader

    Jackie Brown70's.jpg

    I believe that I have viewed the film Jackie Brown ten times over the last two decades. Usually on Cable. 

    Netflix just added this gem with its repertoire for the month of August.

    I wrote about water on the moon 8 years ago.

    The only reason I bring this up is because there
    were 'hits' on this old blog this morning. hahahah

    I thought that something like this comment should be posted at Creative Corner since it really discusses subjects better described as entertainment.

    I just felt that Maher did a good job last night.

    A good job apologizing.

    I have mentioned many times my love for Plato and his Apology.

    Here's To Us!

    Hi there, come on in.  No, it’s okay, there aren’t too many of us yet so you’re good.  Thanks!  That looks fabulous!  I’ll take it to the kitchen while you find a place to settle in … yeah, I know, my thoughts exactly.  But there’s plenty of time for that.  Oh!  You snuck in on me!  I’m so glad you’re here, I was really hoping you’d stop by tonight but I wasn’t sure.  You brought who?  Wonderful!  It’s been so long … give me a hug.  Okay!  You all know where to plant yourselves so head on in while I get everything together.  It’s food, drink and conversation tonight, folks … but if anyone touches the TV it’s gonna get ugly, just as a warning.

    Don't Ya Think?

    Hi there, come on in.  A bit blustery tonight, isn’t it?  Well, at least it’s not pouring down rain … what?  Yeah, it’s weird when that happens.  Anyway, come inside and get comfortable while there’s still plenty of room on the couch.  Hey!  Look at you trying to sneak in with that yummy looking stuff … I promise it’ll make it to the kitchen in one piece … really!  Very funny, just give it to me and grab a seat.  Somebody save me a spot on the floor and put some music on!

    Where Are Your Albums?

    Hi there, come on in.  It is, isn’t it?  It feels like such a long time since we’ve been able to share a lovely night like this … hmm?  Oh, that would be wonderful, but I doubt we’ll get that lucky.  It’s still just January!  Who?  No, I haven’t now that you mention it.  Did you hear something?  Is everything okay?  Yeah, you’re right, it’s just me being paranoid because of, well, you know.  He’ll show up eventually, so in the meantime let’s get inside and grab somewhere to plop and something to eat – not necessarily in that order!

    Waiting for Tuesday (or Godot) on Wednesday

    Unknown journalists recently reported (by courier pigeon) dangling electric lines in the hinterlands where some people had strung up Christmas lights around their dilapidated houses. Christmas was actually over, but why worry about facts?
