I Used To Like Boris Johnson When He Was Mayor Of London, But He Has Prime Minister SCARES Me.

This really scares me. He is another Trump — and not just that mop of hair. Yikes. What have we wrought?

This could be the end of the civilised world. I kid you not. This is serious. I am real concerned.

I had never heard of it, or the firm — though I now realize that they among other things are the folks that do all the ELABORATE embroidery work and uniforms required by the Royal family and the British Establishment (including, of course, the Armed Services). Basically, they are:

You have to check this out. Pretty amazing stuff.

Rhode Island (R.I.) Motorists INGENIOUSLY Registering Cars At An Empty Field In Maine To Avoid Fines!

by Anura Guruge


Click to access the ‘Boston Globe’ original.


The sheer damn INGENUITY of humans — and their innate nature to be deceive — never ceases to amaze me.

What is mind boggling here is that they can get away with it in Maine. Basically means that the Maine folks do not realize that the address is that of an empty field and that ‘100’ cars are registered against that address.

You have to read the story.

NO can DO in strict, law-abiding (Live Free Or Die) New Hampshire. To avoid out-of-staters (i.e., flatlanders) from abusing the system, we the residents have to jump through hoops to register cars. Have to show proof of residence, electricity bills etc. etc.

This is wild.

But, you have to hand it to them. Damn clever. I take my hat off.

Trump Campaign Selling PLASTIC Straws To Defy Liberals Is Morally Wrong To Planet Earth! Period.

This is so wrong at so many levels.

Yes, I know he and his administration have been doing their level best to screw it, but our environment should not be trifled with.

All plastics, especially plastic straws (which we can easily do without), need to be used in moderation, realizing the consequences. We are actually, demonstrably harming aquatic life and even birds that spend time in water.

This is WRONG.

Don’t be suckered in. This is NOT a game. This is NOT a joke.

I was lucky enough to spend much of the day, today, at the always delightful and tranquil ‘Kimball Jenkins Art School‘, in Concord, New Hampshire. When I got there just before 9am it was bright and sunny. But, without taking any pictures, I went for a extremely gratifying one hour walk along the disused tracks by Horseshoe Pond. I did NOT take my camera or my phone. I wanted to enjoy the solitude and I did. When I got back the Sun was GONE. It started raining a bit later. So, this wasn’t the best light. But, it was still OK.
