Random Observations

Feeling a little bit better about things – momentarily, I’m sure, sigh – but I loved this and want to share it. For those of you with a memory like mine, the song is Sweet Dreams by Annie Lennox. You can’t imagine how long it took me to remember the name! I think my hard drive needs a re-boot. Enjoy this…

Just to make peace with Nancy Pelosi, I will tell you this story. For Christmas, I sent my child who has a penis two big food packages of meat, cheese, and a selection of sweets and breads. Also, for my person-in-law, who is married to my child who has a vagina, I purchased a food processor. All the children were pleased.

Every once in a while, you strike gold. I did this morning. I have to share this with you because – well – just because I HAVE to! You need to walk around in my shoes to fully appreciate the things I do to inform you (I know, you never asked me to but hey – it’s my job) of all that is happening in the world. There’s this:

but there’s also this, Feral pigs flummox Puerto Rico, infiltrate communities | Honolulu Star-Advertiser. And finally, just so we don’t get tickled by these stories, here’s a real wake-up call Biggest Wild Hogs Ever Killed – The Outdoor Trip.

Audre’s articles are nearly perfect, so I rarely have anything to add but this reminded me that the phrase ‘Root hog, or die’ goes back in American history at least to the early 1800s. Pigs were commonly left to roam the first growth forests in the Old Northwest and Old Southwest. The result was Cincinnati’s early nickname ‘Porkopolis’. We may not be Pepperidge Farm but we remember in our folklore, like this [Neo]

In the final analysis, we all know he pissed off too many people – there was no coming back from that. But more than that, even if nothing happened on January 6th, the size of the crowd was frighteningly huge. It was the culmination of the campaign rally season and it scared the hell out of people on both sides of the divide. It’s one thing to think a person has power, it’s quite another thing entirely to see digits converted to human beings. Our job now is to figure out what comes next and how to deal with it. We’ve lost a battle – not the war.

Here’s a question – I don’t have an answer and maybe you’d like to make some suggestions (just remember, it’s physically impossible for me to do that! [wink]) … am I the only one that has noticed that suddenly there’s no talk at all about “voting irregularities” (just in case Big Brother is watching) since Jan. 6th? Hmmm …

    I love the lollipop stick piano. Shows what you can do when you recycle well.

    As for your question, Neo, I don’t watch mainstream television so I can’t answer that. However, those questions are still being asked online, not only by commenters but by vloggers. I doubt those questions will ever go away.

    To NEO: Rudy is not going to stop. Will it make a difference? I guess we’ll see.

    All I can say in comfort is that the LORD hears your groans and makes intercession on your behalf. The kingdoms of this world will one day become the kingdom of our LordJesus Christ (Revelation 11:15) where He will rule with a rod of iron (Psalm 2).

  4. That popsicle stick piano is amazing. I need to show that to my Music students next week. My middle schoolers in particular would enjoy that.

    I’ve just have to say something. I’ll just hummm…through my comb. Oh, and try drilling all those holes in the board on your good table top. 🙂

    Random questions but: 1 have any of the regulars here seen the Clint Eastwood-directed film, Breezy, and 2 what did you think of it?

    • audremyers says:

      I haven’t even heard of it Nicholas; is it a new movie?


      • Nicholas says:

        No it was made in the 70s. I think a lot of people might call it sleazy, but I found it relaxing and I think we all need relaxing things these days.

          I resemble that remark! Meaning needing relaxing things. I’ll check it out.

          But speaking about Eastwood movies, have you seen Gran Torino?

        • Nicholas says:

          Yes I have, a few years back. He also said Million Dollar Baby, which is similarly sad. I think he takes an interest in the marginalised and outcast, thus the Hmong in GT and “trailer trash” in MDB.

    Nicholas – What struck me most – and has stayed with me all this time – is it’s a redemption movie. He said, in an interview once, that he could understand how people came to that conclusion but that it wasn’t his intention and yet – I wonder if it was without him even realizing it.
