Reality Exists

         Two conscious Breaths and there she is;  reality.  Up here in the hills above the bay the highway noise is not impossible to hear but easy enough to ignore. A strong reminder, just in case. I need reminders.

          I need to remember to breathe consciously.  Breathing consciously tunes my perspective into a universally shared energy stream  that I forget about. The hardest part of reality is remembering that physics is real. American Culture does all it can to bury…

LEGO

I’ve got a trade show in Orlando starting tomorrow so I drove my family down to Disney. We were at the big shopping area here, Disney Springs, this afternoon. One store that’s there that we always hit is the LEGO store, where they actually sell LEGO blocks in bins with scoops. They do some cool things. I took a few shots of their main display outside, different angles to show detail:…

I Own That Too

         As we wind down to the end of Lorianne’s thankless tenure, for which many of us are thankful, I am endeavoring to create closure for myself in this space, from which I have thoughtlessly projected into cyberspace to save myself from a bad block post the SCOTUS pick in the fall of 2018

         I hardly require such attention. Yet I returned to OS to get what I got from OS in 2009, Maybe more 360 bits, worse then these recent ones...two editors picks out of all of them. I…

American Fascism and Choice

             So, the soccer moms moms got their contraceptives, and then cracked a bottle of Chardy and went to Suburbia of the I Sing into the sunset, bras burnt, and that was that. 

             Meanwhile coffin loads of agency dope were killing of all who were black, poor, and ignorant enough to want a ticket to ride the H train out of poverty for a few hours, courtesy of the White right.  Roe verses Wade brings them out, those college girls...but for decades ethnic…

Better minds than mine drew highways, painted lines, hammered bridges.

Trump Appears To Think Our Moon is Part of Mars

Trump Appears To Think Our Moon is Part of Mars:  President Trump appeared to be seriously confused, after stating that he felt “NASA should forget about the moon and focus on the much bigger things we are doing - including Mars - of which the Moon is a part.”  Hell, no wonder Trump supporters think the moon landing was faked. …

Soldiers of the Non Sequitur

I DUCK, COVER

On April 16, 2010 a meteor cascaded (flashed, suspended and swooped actually) crashing as I recollect, near Sparta, Wisconsin.

Though newsworthy and documented, there's surprisingly odd archive of the event and what appears to be varied record, along with nearly two million multifarious reports.

Raytheon5: Sore Spots

           Charlie Abel, my Captain Charlie, chief of civilian personnel, “out at the fort” survived D day. I never knew he was in France, until he died, and I knew him since I could walk. I never knew they gave him the bronze star, either. 

            I went to work for Charlie in 1972, after volunteering. I never worked for the GSA or the Army. I worked for Charlie. I don’t think there is a record of this, anywhere. I never knew Charlie was the chief of civilian personnel. I was a…

No Photography Allowed

That's what the sign on the wall says in the room in Buckingham Palace where the Trump children, and children-in-law, posed for this 'family portrait' in violation of British  protocol at the expense of American Taxpayers.

Who invited them to the official state dinner anyway?

Most if these people have absolutely no role in the government…
