It must just be filling them to the gills. It’s all they can do not to just run up and blurt out their support for Mayor Pete, and I don’t mean just for the D primary. The same supposedly “conservative” poop-hole that supported Hillary against Trump would certainly have no trouble writing a five-paragraph essay detailing in just-so terms why they cannot possibly support that charlatan Dona – … hey where did everybody go?
We’ve had our first winter storm of the season. The surf is up and the beaches are empty, surfers excepted. There will be bigger storms and taller waves later in the winter but this is a good start. The Santa Monica Mountains are the backdrop. Click on pictures to enlarge.
I don’t want to flag any algorithms, so I want to keep it clean. I have said in the past that I like to see what the kids are up to so that I am aware of youth culture. My daughter thinks this is weird but I will have the last laugh.
Anyway, there is a new thing, that young men online are doing called No Nut November. Basically, it is for young men to agree to stop watching porn and doing the activity that goes along with that for the entire month of November. If they fall off the wagon, they have to pledge to put up this coomer meme as their avatar. It is an online accountability community. This is awesome. Online porn is a plague to society and has done a lot of damage to young men, and women too. So this kind of online support mechanism to help men break their porn addiction is a great development....

The Dems know they’re losing the impeachment battle. I wasn’t sure of that before, but now I am, because we’re witnessing the metamorphosis of their attack.
Has there ever been such a brilliant sobriquet for the entrenched bureaucrats of the deep state as “The Swamp”? Cuz you see, the river god, Proteus, from which we get “protean”, had the following MO: he could change form with dizzying rapidity, transforming in the very grip of his adversary from, say, a man, to a slippery, writhing eel! That often achieved his goal of escaping the mortal who had grabbed him. Which people kept on trying to do, because, if the adversary held on until daybreak despite the unnerving and rapid transformations, Proteus had to “prophesy”, meaning he had to surrender some boon or some important piece of information to his dogged adversary. Something TRUE. They’d hang out by bodies of water, rivers, streams, even marshes (swamps) at night, waiting for him to emerge, they’d brave the awful struggle, fight with a god! just so they could get this precious nugget of infallible wisdom.
Yesterday the Dems’ allies in the media began the metamorphosis. They’re readying us for the idea that Trump must be removed from office because of mental incapacity. I saw one headline: “White House Doctor Says Trump May Have Suffered a Series of Small Strokes”. Oh my God! I was almost shocked into loosing my tenacious hold on the monster’s tail—until I read that this “White House doctor” was B. Hussein’s physician, and a prime advocate of Obamacare. He hasn’t been anywhere near Trump. And today Newsweek has a long article that an “anonymous source” (him again!) in the WH says Trump has trouble remembering things he’s said. Oh, y’mean like poor demented Slimy Jim Comey? ... [Read More]
One of the most glaring changes from moving from SoFL to NoFL (South Georgia) is the lovely surprise of the socio-demographics of the residents. This is not only about my neighbors who are both quiet and inclined to live among natural wildlife and mind their own business, the community also refuses to install sidewalks, street lamps, allow motorcycles or even golf carts. In other words, the key word is serenity.
As with every new home, nothing ever gets done specifically right so today we had to replace our front door entry hard wear because the head designer (“Mr. Dennis” – my husband) did not get what he wanted. Complaints? No. Profuse apologies? Yes.... [Read More]
I don’t even know what to do with this commercial. The questions I had watching this was, first, what does this have to do with Sprite?
Second, what do these moms or grandma (cause I didn’t see a dad in this commercial) think their baby is going to be up to while they are gone looking like that?. I can assure you, they ain’t having milk and cookies.
I guess, for them, that is just fine but they look like they are sending their kid off to college, instead of a debauched, baccanale... [Read More]
Thanks, @seawriter, for the review of Lackey’s To The Waters And The Wild. I spent a few fun hours in the world of this YA fantasy. Narnia on steroids ( and, uh, also on hormones..)
If anybody else is going to read it, I don’t think I’ll be spoiling the plot if I reveal th@5 one of the characters is a lamia: a magical beast whose true form is of an evil hideous serpent who preys on mortals, but who always appears to us as a young maiden of heart-melting beauty, until it is….too late!
So that made me think of other lamiae I have encountered, specifically in Coleridge’s great poem Christabel. The eponymous heroine is praying alone on the grounds of her father’s castle, in the hour before dawn, when she hears a piteous cry and discovers the lovely Lady Geraldine, faint with terror and exhaustion after a churlish attack upon her person. Christabel naturally asks her back to the castle, and has to practically heave her through the gate (cold iron, a bane to all fey creatures, as we know,but poor Christabel misses the clue.) They go to her own bedroom because the castle staff are asleep and can’t be roused to prepare a chamber. And then…Geraldine looses her mantle, lets it fall, revealing her ugly scaly barbed side!
“In the touch of this bosom there worketh a spell/Which is lord of thy utterance, Christabel!” she intones, meaning the poor girl will never be able to speak of what she is seeing. Nor of what they are doing, which is not described, except that when Christabel wakes she thinks “Sure I have sinned!!…”... [Read More]
In a rather disheartening twist, Chick fil a just spit in the face of every customer they had supporting them through the LGBTQ nonsense.
It appears to me that instead of standing by their positions, they have decided to cut funding to one of the more honest charities (highest ratio of donations goes to charity) that specializes in homeless shelters, shelters for abused women and children, and drug addict rehabilitation....

The skeleton of Richard III of England was discovered a few years ago, ignominiously reposing beneath a public garage, (making him the “par-King, hee hee, sorry!) Of course there’s been a school of revisionist thought about the monarch Shakespeare so unforgettably villainized. But the deformed despot has, generally, been someone we love to hate.
And so has our last American Richard: Nixon. ... [Read More]
