I've also been told I have little tact, so if this offends you simply ride on.

 Holy Crap, it's Friday!  I can not believe how fast time is flying by... or maybe I've just had too much caffeine this morning.  Nah, that can't be it.  I'm one of those rare souls who can drink a pot of coffee and then go to bed.  Blame the Navy.  There were times cruising around the Gulf of Tonkin where our shifts were 6 and 6: 6 hours on and 6 hours off.  That's the definition of rotation hell.  Most likely it is nothing more then a side effect of the aging process.  And though it may seem to be flying past at breakneck speeds, this is not to say passing hours are always enjoyable.  Yesterday, for example, was slow and every minute seemed like a freaking eternity.  To be honest, I think those who desperately are seeking to spend an eternity in an afterlife are crazier then hell.  For them, conceiving the length of eternity is beyond their feeble little brains.  For them, the same is true about the universe.  You say universe to them and you can tell simply by looking in their eyes that their personal universe has a perimeter about 217 and a half feet (66.29 M) away from their confused consciousness.   See, I told you it wasn't the coffee.

The size of the universe is too much for some to bear

Next Saturday, some of my Navy friends are having a Zoom meeting and I plan to participate.  I have not seen any of them in 48 years.  This should be interesting.  I'm thinking about recording it and then sending them copies.  Thanks to the Pandemic, Zoom has changed our lives in so many ways.  This is a future no one quite predicted.  

The Cult of Trump began its annual meeting yesterday.  This is a group which has spent what to them feels like an eternity, or at least since Reagan's reelection, an eternity trying to wrest power away from our Democracy.  Formerly known as Republicans, their only goal is to dictate and control.  They have moved so far to the right the idea of a country that is mostly Centrist horrifies the hell out of them.  Creating a holy evangelical empire is their goal.  They have no true idea of how long eternity is, they just know they want to spend it demonizing everything they hate.


  1. mc turtle hates the dump, yet says he will support him in 2024. spineless!

    will be interested in hearing about your zoom meeting review.

  2. Did you see the Golden Statue of "him" that they wheeled in?
    Seriously crazy asshats there.

    1. I do believe the Golden Calf is trending all over the place.

  3. Hahaha I was gonna comment on the Golden Calf and I see you are up to speed. The GQP is indeed the cult of Cheeto. No ifs or buts.
    And Zoom and teleconferencing has changed the way we interact and work. Huntley was telling me yesterday they are going full-on remote. I still don't know when we are going back to work.
    Hope you have fun!


    1. Since now they can track your productivity when you're working at home, home is where many will stay.

  4. Enjoy your zoom call with your Navy buddies - and I think the idea of recording it and sending everyone a copy if great!
