This is pretty much what the Japs in Manilla might have seen in 1945

Move on. Nothing to see here.

My current blog roll lists just 25 blogs that are brilliant, or satisfy me in some fashion.  Some,  like Sondrakistan and American Digest, are so packed with content that I often leave thinking, "well, that's all there is; I can't add anything else," so I go fishing.  What I mean to say is that my blog is about what I'm thinking about at the moment ... . So that's what my focus becomes.  And it's already been handled, so what the hell.  Anyway, these from Kaiser Vanderleun are today's case in point.  I'm going to watch 8 Top Gears (81-90) .

Climate control heads People control list

Obama believes the most important issue of second term is 'climate change'

Do we have the most obtuse President ever in the Oval Office?

Res Ipsa Loquitur
Tens of millions of people out of work or underemployed; pension funds at risk; the entitlement crisis is getting worse every day it is unaddressed; the oncoming "fiscal cliff" threatens to throw us into another recession (predicted by the non-partisan Congressional Budget Office; Taxmaggedon begins on January 1st; our deficit is enormous and we have accumulated trillions of dollars of debt under his presidency with nothing to show for it other than high unemployment and high debt; and Barack Obama believes climate change trumps these concerns?

Sixty Six and Doc Martin

This is a two minute trailer

Sixty Six  Plot

Bernie Reubens (Gregg Sulkin) a young Jewish boy is about to have his bar mitzvah. Initially, he meticulously plans a lavish reception to upstage that of his older brother Alvie (Ben Newton), but as the family's finances lurch from one disaster to another, the family is forced to lower Bernie's expectations and stage the bar mitzvah reception at home in North London. When England reach the 1966 football World Cup Final, most of the guests make excuses not to come to the reception so that they can watch the game.

I so thoroughly enjoyed this 2006 movie that I think I'll recommend it to you.  A great "Father's Day" film on the order of  Field of Dreams.  For me anyway.

While I'm at it  Now that I've exhausted Sherlock Holmes and Perot on NetFlix, "Doc Martin" has become my best television series of all time.  I'm up to episode 8 of 32 (I think) on NetFlix, and as the characters firm up, each new episode is better than the last. 

It was created based after the character of Dr. Martin Bamford in the 2000 comedy film Saving Grace. Martin Clunes plays Dr. Martin Ellingham, a brilliant and successful vascular surgeon at Imperial College London who develops haemophobia (a fear of blood), and as a result is forced to stop practicing surgery. He obtains a post as the General Practitioner (GP) in the sleepy Cornish village of Portwenn, where he spent childhood holidays with his Aunt Joan .  Clunes is brilliant.
