      Celebrity story! My friend Chrissy and I went to the Electric Factory to see Neil Young and Crazy Horse, and we got invited backstage. We were too naive to know why; we thought they were being nice because we were fans. So we’re standing there in the dressing room while everyone was getting high, and […]

    • Britain Starts The Process for Leaving the EU
      Article 50, which starts a 2 year negotiating period, has been triggered. In principle, this is irrevocable, in practice, perhaps not so, but it’s hard to see May changing her mind. The EU negotiators primary goal will be to make sure that Britain is worse off after leaving than before. It’s not that this has […]

We’re in the pink! Winter storm but not a blizzard


Woot! Woot! Woot!

It’s not actually that bad here in Pittsburgh. The snow is still falling but we didn’t get a white out, the cows ain’t freezin’ in the fields and the children aren’t stuck in the schoolhouse overnight.

But I’m not going anywhere today. I have Netflix and iTunes and Amazon Prime. You know, the three ingredients necessary for subsistence during a weather emergency. Also some fig and olive crackers from TJ’s along with a creamy feta cheese spread.

Maybe we should get together later and discuss Iowa and what’s really going on and why the Democrats are so hung up on the idea that perfectly reasonable people, who are also Democrats who are not Republicans, are still racists or something like that. There’s some obsessive thinking going on there.

I keep toying with the idea of a podcast and have a name for it all picked out. Anyone want to chime in about that?

In the meantime, check out this video by John “Cedars” Lloyd, on his critique of the Jehovah’s Witnesses latest broadcasting video. An apology in advance to my relatives who still believe this stuff. I just don’t know how they can watch this without a drinking game. Too funny. By the way, you don’t have to sit through the whole video. Just the first 4 minutes should be enough.

Take it away, John.

  1. We got a little snow here so I’m pretending I’m snowed in. But actually, I tripped in it while bringing in my parent’s trash cans and smashed my face on the driveway. I got two lovely fat lips. …. Then a Crown on a back molar yesterday. Good times…..

  2. Somehow every place within 50 miles of me has a foot or more but we only got a few inches, but unfortunately mucho ice. One degree too warm.

  3. Stay warm and dry, NE’ers! Has anyone heard anything else today about Bloomberg entering the race as an independent? The BBC reports he’s planning on doing so in March if Bernie Sanders appears to be the nominee at that point, or “if Hillary Clinton is weakened by Bernie Sanders.” He “sees a gap.” The BBC calls that “disastrous for the Democrats,” as he is likely to pull support from them in a close election.

    • I have the opposite suspicion from the BBC.

      Bloomberg may be a safety valve for Establishment Reptilians, who don’t want to lose control of their party to the minions of Trump or Cruz, but don’t want to defect visibly to the Dinocratic Party.

      I’m just barely old enough (53 in May) to remember “Democrats for Nixon” ads back in 1972. The Establishment Rs may be willing to lose this Prez election, rather than lose their control over the R party to a bunch of vulgar upstarts–just as the Establishment Ds were willing to lose the Prez election in 1972, rather than lose their control over their party to a bunch of vulgar upstarts.


  4. At least you didn’t say Snopocalypse

  5. Yikes! katiebird! ( hugs!)

    The Obama love is killing Hillary’s campaign . Does anyone else remember how often those Dems who hitched their wagon to his star on the off years were defeated? Or how often Dem candidates asked/ begged him NOT to appear with them? Obama is a vote generator for Obama and always has been. Peroid.
    Hill should be talking about how she’s going forward, not how great he is and has been ! Surely Trump and Berine’s success shows that the status quo this time around is the kiss of death.
