  1. The wonder of it all.

     

    Not only could we build a helicopter that can fly at the equivalent of 100,000 feet (that according to some NASA spokesman),  we could then pack it up,  transport it safely 173,000,000 miles, unpack it on another planet,  have the programming and hardware work after that long journey, and then send back to Earth very clear images of it.   

     

    I was comparing it to the quality of the broadcast from Apollo 11.  Amazing.

    Birdgun's fractured scripture interpretation.

    Genesis 3:12 (CSB)

    3:12:  The man replied, “The woman you gave to be with me — she gave me some fruit from the tree, and I ate.”

     

    And there is the true sin.  If Adam had fessed up, said something like,  "Yes, Lord, I broke your simple rule,  please forgive me."  everything would have been fine.   But he tried to pass the blame.

    WARNING:  NOT FOR WEAK STOMACHS

     

    My dad loved Peanut Butter and yellow Mustard sandwiches.   Dad would spread a thick layer of PB on one slice, and a thick layer of Mustard on the other. 

     

    But, one day I saw Dad excel.  After layering each slice of bread in his typical fashion, he stuck his head into the refrigerator, grabbed a bowl of Mom's leftover cold Sour Kraut, and slapped a big bunch of that cold Sour Kraut between the PB and Mustard. 

     

    It was a one of Dad's new creations.  A Peanut Butter, Mustard, and Cold Sour Kraut sandwich!!!

     

    That sounds interesting.   

    I can see how the flavors will work together.

  4. Our toy poodle came with the name April.  It's even on her papers from the breeder.   We didn't want to confuse her by trying to change her name. 

     

     

     

    We have nicknamed her "Little Miss" for when we need to talk about her but don't want her to hear her name.   We did that as a take on "Young Miss" from the movie "Serenity, "  when the bounty hunter has caused some official to fall on the bounty hunter's sword.

  5. A thoroughly inspiring piece of music!

     

     

     

    Beautiful!  Meaningful!

    EH CUMPARI (English lyrics)
    Archie Bleyer / Julius La Rosa  1953

    as rec by The Stargazers  1950's


    Eh cumpari, let's make some music,
    What'll I play?  The piccolino!
    But how do you play it, the piccolino?
    Wi wi wi wi, the piccolino,
    Chippity chippity tah!

     

    Eh cumpari, let's make some music,
    What'll I play?  The saxophona!
    But how do you play it, the saxophone?
    Toot toot toot toot, the saxophone,
    Wi wi wi wi, the piccolino,
    Chippity chippity tah!

     

    Eh cumpari, let's make some music,
    What'll I play?  The violino!
    But how do you play it, the violino?
    A zing a zing, the violin,
    Toot toot toot toot, the saxophone,
    Wi wi wi wi, the piccolino,
    Chippity chippity tah!

     

    Eh cumpari, let's make some music,
    What'll I play?  The valchapata!
    But how do you play it, the valchapata?
    Pap pap pap pap, the valchapet,
    A zing a zing, the violin,
    Toot toot toot toot, the saxophone,
    Wi wi wi wi, the piccolino,
    Chippity chippity tah!

     

    Eh cumpari, let's make some music,
    What'll I play?  The slide trombona!
    But how do you play it, the slide trombona?
    A pume a pume, the slide trombone,
    Pap pap pap pap, the valchapet,
    A zing a zing, the violin,
    Toot toot toot toot, the saxophone,
    Wi wi wi wi, the piccolino,
    Chippity chippity tah!

     

    A pume a pume, the slide trombone,
    Pap pap pap pap, the valchapet,
    A zing a zing, the violin,
    Toot toot toot toot, the saxophone,
    Wi wi wi wi, the piccolino,
    Chippity chippity,
    Chippity chippity tah!

  6. Several quotes:

    “The prohibition is general. No clause in the Constitution could by any rule of construction be conceived to give to Congress a power to disarm the people. Such a flagitious attempt could only be made under some general pretense by a state legislature. But if in any blind pursuit of inordinate power, either should attempt it, this amendment may be appealed to as a restraint on both.”  Wm. Rawle, A View of the Constitution 125-6 (2nd ed. 1829)

    "The very purpose of a Bill of Rights was to withdraw certain subjects from the vicissitudes of political controversy, to place them beyond the reach of majorities and officials and to establish them as legal principles to be applied by the courts. One's right to life, liberty, and property, to free speech, a free press, freedom of worship and assembly, and other fundamental rights may not be submitted to vote; they depend on the outcome of no elections."
    : Robert H. Jackson, US Supreme Court Justice West Virginia State Board of Education v. Barnette, 319 U.S. 624 (1943)
     

    The Second Amendment does not apply to semi-auto rifles, nor does it apply to bolt action rifles, pistols, or revolvers. The Second Amendment RESTRICTS GOVERNMENT. The technology of the firearm is irrelevant

    The restrictions on government remain the same, regardless of the firearm.  The Second Amendment was not written to grant permission for citizens to own and bear firearms. It forbids government interference in the right to keep and bear arms, period. The right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed. (Source unknown)

    Why watch it?

     

    Like it or not he was a major player on the world stage for over half a century. 

     

    More than that, as has been pointed out,  he was a combat vet, devoted husband and father, and, from what I've read about him, an all around decent person.   The world is lessened with his passing.

     

     

    Then there are some of us who enjoy watching well done ceremony and pageantry.  Gives a sense of continuance and stability to things.
