  Obama Surprise Cookies ?

few weeks ago I posted a picture of the Turducken of Cookies—Choc Chip Oreo Surprise.  Today I had a hankerin'.  Took 20 minutes start to finish using Pillsbury cookie mix.

Thanking God for abortions? JFC!

When Democrats are in charge

      They made the unusual decision, for Democrats, to begin the event with a prayer. This was likely in response to a prayer vigil being conducted by pro-life activists at the same time nearby.

    Des Moines activist Midge Slater took the podium and spent five and a half minutes thanking God for abortion rights, abortion doctors and taxpayer funding for abortions. She also referred to the decision to have an abortion as “a blessing”.

    During the entire prayer, State Senator Jack Hatch and Rep. Tyler Olson, both of whom are running for governor, kept their heads bowed and eyes closed, joining in the group prayer.

Nobody yet has told me how we might have a conversation with Democrats, and this is why.  There are none. No way.  Nada.  Let me define "Democrat," so there is no misunderstanding about whom we speak.  A Democrat voted for Obama.  The stain is indelible.

  Went to a couple's place last night for cocktails, after dinner.  This guy is a German, who took an early retirement working for US Forces in Europe, then "retired" at the age of 53 in Arizona.   Since then, he and his wife moved to Salinas, Ecuador....didn't like that (I could have told him) and now has been in Cuenca for a couple of years.  He is now 65.

Anyway....this guys is a TV nut.  He turned me on to HMA (Hide My Ass) VPN......... for a monthly fee you can re-route your IP  (actually, it gives you a new IP) through thousands of servers all over the world.  Right now, I'm operating through a proxy server in Miami..... after just leaving a server in Denver.

Res Ipsa LoquitorThe advantage there, is that a lot of content (about 90% of Netflix content) is restricted for distribution outside North America..... I just logged on to my Netflix account after hooking up to HMA..... and now 100% of the content is there!  The same holds true for PBS, the History Channel, etc....

Anyway, none of this helps any of you unless you are outside the country....but he did turn me on to two Android apps.  One for TV (Called TV Portal) and one for Movies (Movie Maze).  Through TV Portal, it looks like he can pull up pretty much any TV show that's been aired in the last few years.  Movie Maze is even more interesting.... he fired it up on his Toshiba Tablet, and started playing the new Mat Damon movie (Elysium), which is currently in theaters in the US. 

Since I had my Samsung Tablet stolen in Buenos Aires.... I'll have to rely on my Samsung phone for now.... but I'm going to give it a try in a few minutes.  Just thought you'd be interested in the VPN capability, AND the two Android apps (Apple might have similar apps, for all I know).

This guy really knows what he is doing, and he is DEATH on anything Apple.  On the other hand, I've run into people that are just as committed to Apple, and wouldn't have anything but.....

Since Rick and I still have our teenage hair, it must be maternal genes.  Of course he is 30 tears my junior.

Professor's Response To Angry Gay Marriage Supporter

Res Ipsa Loquitor

Excerpted from Clash DailyDear Edward:

I want to take the time to thank you for writing and telling me that I should be fired from my position as a tenured professor because I am “the biggest embarrassment to higher education in America.” I also want to thank you for responding when I asked you exactly how you arrived at that conclusion. Your response, “because you insist that marriage requires one man and one woman,” was both helpful and concise.

While I respect your right to conclude that I am the biggest embarrassment to higher education in America, I think you’re wrong. In fact, I don’t even think I’m the biggest embarrassment to higher education in the state of North Carolina. But since you’re a liberal and you support “choice” – provided we’re talking about dismembering children and not school vouchers for those who weren’t dismembered – I want to give you some options. In fact, I’m going to describe the antics of ten professors, official campus groups, and invited campus speakers in North Carolina and let you decide which constitutes the biggest embarrassment to higher education.

  • In the early spring semester of 2013, a women’s studies professor and a psychology professor at Western Carolina University co-sponsored a panel on bondage and S&M. The purpose of the panel was to teach college students how to inflict pain on themselves and others for sexual pleasure. When you called me the biggest embarrassment in higher education, you must not have known about their bondage panel. Maybe you were tied up that evening and couldn’t make it.

  • At UNC Chapel Hill, there is a feminist professor who believes that women can lead happy lives without men. That’s nothing new. But what’s different is that she thinks women can form lifelong domestic partnerships with dogs and that those relationships will actually be fulfilling enough to replace marital relationships with men. I can’t make this stuff up, Ed. I don’t drop acid. Well, at least not since the late 1980s. But I promise this story is real and not an LSD flashback.

  • At Duke University, feminists hired a “sex worker” (read: prostitute) to speak as part of an event called the Sex Workers Art Show. After his speech, the male prostitute pulled down his pants, got down on his knees, and inserted a burning sparkler into his rectum. While it burned, he sang a verse of “the Star Spangled Banner.” I believe that stripping incident was almost as embarrassing as the other one involving the Duke Lacrosse team.
There are seven more examples given.  Mike Adams is a criminology professor at the University of North Carolina Wilmington and author of Letters to a Young Progressive: How To Avoid Wasting Your Life Protesting Things You Don’t Understand\.   This earns the Tag "Best Ever"

Flight Tracking Everybody

TECHNO THRILLS                      

"Tell Uncle Harry His Plane Made it Over The Border"
And look at all the pretty colors

I've been using some version of Flight Tracker since the Battle of Britain when we tracked during the Blitz, but this is staggering.  I'll leave it you you to fool around with it, but it does raise a question.  Who is it that wants the capability to monitor every single plane in the air?  Just wondering.

A pool closer
It seems like it was just last week we had the season pool opener here; and, wow,  this weekend we had the pool closer.  I can't believe it.  It seems like just a few years ago that we celebrated Frank's B'day at the pool closer   It seems like a hundred years ago when we had a constitutional government.
