Gaming Night

April 16th, 2011 (11:26 pm)

Wonderful Saturday night regardless that it was just myself, Ginna and Tim, the sheer pleasure of a gaming night, Stalking the Night Fantastic in 1860 Virginia. Maybe we'll do something in the 1880's wild west next time?

Yep, the ones in position of power still makes me believe Absolute Power Corrupts etc etc

Proverbs 28:2

Where there is moral rot within a nation, its government topples easily.
But wise and knowledgeable leaders bring stability.

Please read and react.

Monday on Fox news they learned that the staffers of Congress family members are exempt from having to pay back student loans. This will get national attention if other news networks will broadcast it. When you add this to the below, just where will all of it stop?

35 States file lawsuit against the Federal Government.

Governors of 35 states have filed suit against the Federal Government for imposing unlawful burdens upon them. It only takes 38 (of the 50) States to convene a Constitutional Convention.

This will take less than thirty seconds to read. If you agree, please pass it on.

This is an idea that we should address.

For too long we have been too complacent about the workings of Congress.
Many citizens had no idea that members of Congress could retire with the same pay after only one term, that they specifically exempted themselves from many of the laws they have passed (such as being exempt from any fear of prosecution for sexual harassment) while ordinary citizens must live under those laws. The latest is to exempt themselves from the Healthcare Reform... in all of its forms. Somehow, that doesn't seem logical. We do not have an elite that is above the law. I truly don't care if they are Democrat, Republican, Independent or whatever. The self-serving must stop.

If each person that receives this will forward it on to 20 people, in three days, most people in The United States of America will have the message.
This is one proposal that really should be passed around.

Proposed 28th Amendment to the United States Constitution: "Congress shall make no law that applies to the citizens of the United States that does not apply equally to the Senators and/or Representatives; and, Congress shall make no law that applies to the Senators and/or Representatives that does not apply equally to the citizens of the United States ."

You are one of my 20.

Green Light (1937)

August 9th, 2010 (09:01 am)

current mood: awake

Just finished another Errol Flynn film I have never seen. Great story (although the names are changed) about the doctors that found the cure for "Rocky Mountain Spotted Fever." Flynn plays Dr. Newell Paige, who sacrifices his career for the mistake of the doctor who taught him everything he knows, when a well known and beloved patient dies. After speaking to Deacon Harcourt played by Sir Cedric Hardwicke (another actor I was never hugely fond of but am developing an interest in), he joins his friend and colleague Dr. John Stafford who left to join the fight against the spotted fever.

An interesting point is made in the film when Dr. Stafford points out that the men before him are largely forgotten for their role in the research as were such doctors as Robert Cooley and Howard Ricketts who were foremost in finding a cure. Of course there is a romance included, it wouldn't be an Errol Flynn film without one, however like more than it's share of films from the past I enjoyed the light this film brought upon those brave selfless doctors that are long but forgotten, if not memorialized in names but in the actions in this film.

TCM Jungle Classics Mini-Marathon

August 5th, 2010 (08:41 am)

This morning TCM is running four jungle classics back to back. First off, Johnny Sheffield, who co-starred with Johnny Weissmuller in seven Tarzan films as "Boy", starts the morning as Bomba the Jungle Boy

in "The Lion Hunters" (1951)

and "African Treasure" (1952). Sheffield would make twelve appearances as Bomba.

Next up is Tarzan's Fight For Life starring Gordon Scott.

Ending the jungle fest is "Tarzan's Three Challenges" starring Jock Mahoney.

While you'll never find any Oscar nominations among this group, it is a fun filled morning of summers gone by when I watched Tarzan and jungle movies during the summer of my youth and ran around in the back yard in shorts only with a bow and arrows shooting everything from a bale of hay to trees and such playing Tarzan. Oh to be young again!

First off, I know I sound like a wuss, but day 3 with 90+ degrees and no AC. Still waiting on the repairman, second time btw. What I wanna talk about is extremes, I just took another cold shower and now the towels are warm to the touch. I remember 100+ degree when I was a kid and it was never like this. btw, the guy said morning and its almost 2pm. He had 2 people ahead of me. UGH!!!

November 30th and Lawn Service?

November 30th, 2009 (01:36 pm)

Okay, now I really know that I am getting too old. I just put "The Bishop's Wife" into the DVD player and it seems the minute I did that I hear the roaring hum of a lawn mower. I should be hearing a snow blower!
