The National College Football Championship ended up being between two SEC teams; Georgia and Alabama. Living in Georgia made me aware of that fact, and having no affiliation with either team, I literally had no "dog" in that fight. I was gripped by a mixture of anger and nausea as I watched the pretender to the Presidency walk onto the field, flanked by marines, but I endured.
So, watching two evenly matched, undeniably talented,teams should have been exciting, but I turned the T.V.…Continue
The Worst Ever
You told me that I'm the worst you ever knew
And I haven't a clue
When I never laid a hand on you
And I never raped you,
1947 Part III
The year of 1947 was not only a pivotal year in terms of political and classified terms for government security matters, but with the advent of the Roswell Incident in which the recovery of a crashed alien flying disk by the 509th Bomb…Continue

The creek wound around at least half of the farm. A row of trees lined the banks of it on both sides leaving a long shadowy trail that left the water dark and ominous looking by the time late afternoons rolled around. I hated ever getting in there much less when the…Continue
It seems just like it all happened such a short time ago as I look back on my childhood. Living thirty miles from the nearest town put us quite a ways out from the heart beat of the general public.

We Are The Borg
Those of you who are Star Trek fans will remember Jeri Ryan’s character, Seven of Nine. When captured Seven of Nine was a member of the Borg, a collective of humans who had been fitted with devices that made them androids, unquestioning subjects of the queen, and always a member of the collective, always in sync as a single great mind.…Continue
Got to start with the appropriate lead in a review about a show sometimes fun, but never great, had an acceptable host with occasional clever bits, didn’t have big surprises for most of the awards, including announced winner La La Land for Best Picture.

“Good morning, the entire world was at peace last night. Not one war happened. There were no shots fired. There were no bombs blowing up anything. There were no abandoned, abused or kidnapped children. There are no violent deaths to report. The…Continue

SHOCKING! and this is not an april fools joke! (hefner is almost 90 now...)

How ‘bout that Holiday (rimshot!)!
Why the signing matters: only rock-solid stone would be a stronger (known) medium for this purpose than mere paper.
