The top image is from the SONO Switch Tower Museum. A treat little place to visit in South Norwalk CT. I occasionally volunteer there from time to time.
I think that I need to update the sticky post. And add some rules. First the rules.
Comments are very much welcomed. . If you choose to remain anonymous you MUST provide a actual email address and a real, not Tor IP. I want to talk to real people who have real personalities. If you want to not have your comment posted just say so and it will never escape moderation. If you want to find me offline my linked in profile is in the “about” post.
Baen books had a contest and they wanted a one hundred word story about independence and monsters so I wrote up a little thing with Noro and Dori. Noro is telling Dori how he saved the Declaration, or Thomas Jefferson from a British spy vampire.
Sarah Hoyt recently posted this in response to a friend commenting that the “moderators” of her secret group “Sarah’s Diner were control freaks. Sarah, I hate to tell you this, but Niki Kenyon, Amada Green, Kate Paulk and the other moderators in your group are control freaks and petty tyrants. How do I know? Because I was summarily thrown out of the group as a result of a fight that Niki and Kate started.
I wasn’t going to say anything about how Sarah and her friends treated me. they didn’t seem to care and their ostracization of me is probably something that doesn’t bother them that much. On the other hand, if Sarah wants to bring the topic up,I think that people should see the people that are her moderators and judge for themselves. I wasn’t going to bring this up Sarah, but since you blocked me on Facebook, I’m no longer a member of the groups and I imagine that any comment I make on your blog will be deleted, I’m going to say my piece on mine.
I was watching the hearings with Special Agent Peter Strzok and some questions come to mind. That is if the all so convenient FBI council would let him. Frankly if I were Director Wray at this point my orders would be to give the joint committee everything. The longer that the FBI stalls, the worse it’s going to get for the FBI. If heads must roll at this point, the heads must roll and the faster it gets done the better it will be for the FBI and the country. If things go too much longer the FBI’s reputation, what is left of it, as a viable law enforcement institution will be essentially gone. All the talk operations and ongoing investigations at this point is nothing more than a very tattered cover for something that is truly ugly.
I had always wondered if my grandfather had traveled Japan as none of the slides I had were from Japan. That question was answered when my dad gave me a rather large slide case that, among other things was marked: Japan. The slide case had some wonderful pictures and I put some of them up on flikr. Enjoy.
Turning and turning in the widening gyre | The falcon cannot hear the falconer | Things fall apart; the centre cannot hold | Mere anarchy is loosed upon the world | The blood-dimmed tide is loosed, and everywhere | The ceremony of innocence is drowned | The best lack all conviction, while the worst | Are full of passionate intensity. -- W.B. Yeats, The Second Coming
