About Me

I thought I knew a lot, and I found out... how little I knew about what I know. And how much more there is to learn, if I listen and read what others have to say.

A couple of ideas why Donald Trump has lost and is going down.

... Of course Donald Trump thinks he is "so smart". And Donald has so much business experience that makes him think he is even "smarter." Of course, Donald "thinks he is smart".
...Actually there are two truths that prove Donald is going down. A: Pelosi and Schiff have a lot more government experience than Dopey Donald. Therefore, they know a lot more about the business of the federal government than Dopey Donald could possibly imagine.
... B: Real smart people don't go blabbing all the time, and don't go around telling everyone that they are "smart." An example of "B" is our last President, Barack Obama. Obama is really smart and highly respected. One of the most respected individuals in the entire world. Does anyone remember Obama going around telling people, "I am smart"? I don't recall that one, do you?
...Being "smart" involves not blabbing all the time about everything. I think Dopey Donald does not pass that test. Does he? Donald Drump is going down. He has already fallen off the cliff in my opinion.

Monument Valley Utah has something to do with modern films (last 75 years)

Yes, this is a "trick question"..and it is also sort of "fun question" If someone gets it, I will let you know.

What does Monument Valley in Utah have to do with modern films of the last 75 years?
..........hint: relates to animated films...

Need help sending pictures by email..

...Never had this problem before, but today I have it. I looked at pictures stored in Picassa before I went on the internet. Found the one I wanted to send, and then hit the section of Picasa that says "Email the picture" I filled in my email address, and then my correct password. ..All I got was "cannot access account information"..I have never had trouble sending my photos before, but today it doesn't seem to work.
Yes, I have sent them in the past with no trouble. But today, for some reason the system is not working..Any ideas at all?
... I retried the account at gmail, not from the picassa folder, but from the account itself without the picture, on the internet,.and email went through..Any ideas? Perhaps I am doing something wrong..I don't know what? It has worked before..Maybe my computer is screwed up...But, I you can read this email sent from Illinois to wherever DU machines are located, something must work..
...I do want to send the pictures in my Picasa folder. I got 2000 pictures from locations like Tokyo, Maine, Florida etc.etc.etc. Please help if you can. Thank you for any ideas at all..And thank you for the time you took in posting those ideas..

The bottom line is Pelosi, Schumer, and Schiff will get them.

So, you and I are pissed to hell about Dodging Donnie. And Dodging Donnie thinks he can gat away with it. But Pelosi, Schumer and Schiff are also pissed. They don't use those words, but Nancy said it will "take time." Do you think she knows what she is doing? I do. And I think those three are more pissed then us. (hard to believe?) They will get him. I don't know how or when, but Dodging Donnie and his gang are coming down. James Bond, Wonder Woman, and the Lone Ranger are on the way. Dodging Donnie and the "Liar Gang" are coming down, one way or another. That is how this movie/show/drama ends.

This is the Constitutional Crisis We Feared: Washington Post

_______________________________________________________________________________________

For nearly three years, President Trump’s critics have warned that there might come a point when we face a genuine constitutional crisis, one that threatens our very Democratic system. That constitutional crisis has arrived.

The White House has released an extraordinary letter from White House Counsel Pat Cipollone to congressional Democrats, a document that will live on in infamy from this day forward as evidence of how profoundly Trump corrupted the office of the president and everyone around him.

Despite the fact that it appears under the signature of the chief lawyer of the White House, the letter reads like some combination of a deeply misinformed seventh-grader’s social studies paper and a rant from Sean Hannity, randomly tossing around terms like “civil liberties” and “separation of powers” without any apparent understanding of what they mean. And when they can’t, they will then go to the courts.”

Boiled down to its essence, the letter asserts that Trump is beyond the reach of oversight, of impeachment and of any checks and balances from the legislative branch. Because he thinks Congress is not treating him “fairly” (the word “fair” appears eight times in the letter), Trump has decided that he can issue a blanket refusal to “participate in your partisan and unconstitutional inquiry.” All requests for documents and testimony will be rejected, and all subpoenas will be thrown in the trash.

To put this in context, there are regular disputes between Congress and the executive branch over particular subpoenas or other ways Congress exercises its oversight power.

“The executive rarely if ever is willing to give up everything Congress wants on the terms that Congress wants,” Professor Melissa Murray of New York University law school told me. But the usual procedure is that after some negotiation, “they reach some compromise that’s mutually acceptable. And when they can’t, they will then go to the courts.”

Very Strange Experience.

Last night, Monday Oct 7, I was at a party for a 3 month old baby. Very cute, but at the end of the evening the host played a video of me being on Candid Camera in 1964. Now that was 55 years ago. So I was a delivery boy and I went to an address, and saw a sign on a door that said "Nudist Convention Colony all entrants must be properly attired." I scratched my head and said, "Can I take off half my clothes.?.. And that was on coast to coast TV on a very popular show in 1964. ( And the host of last nights party went to a lot of trouble to get that video..believe me..)

What was strange for me, (I had seen that before) but how I looked when I was 18. A young, handsome, thin fellow delivering packages. I ain't the same now, but yes, I was on Candid Camera in 1964..

Sheriff's Deputy Delivers Baby After Pulling Over Speeding Parents: A 'Reasonable Excuse'

Nice story from Florida:

https://people.com/human-interest/sheriffs-deputy-delivers-baby-pulling-over-speeding-parents/

As a Florida sheriff’s deputy in law enforcement for nearly three decades, Robert Pounds has delivered plenty of speeding tickets over the years. But prior to this week, he’d never before delivered a baby.

Pounds put his many years of training to work early Tuesday when he helped deliver a baby girl on the side of the road after pulling her parents over for speeding

The deputy had noticed a car going 63 mph in a 45 mph zone on Airport-Pulling Road in Collier County, and conducted a traffic stop around 4:30 a.m., the Collier County Sheriff’s Department said in a Facebook post.

As footage from the dash-cam shows, the car’s driver, Wilfrid Jean-Louis, explained the situation, prompting Pounds, a father of three, to spring into action and helped deliver a baby girl

The Bully in Charge is Going Down.

..All he had to do is shut up. He couldn't. Like all bullies, he thinks he is indestructible. He is not. He is going down and that is the truth. When? I don't know. How will it happen? I don't know. Maybe impeachment. Maybe resignation. Maybe some other way. It doesn't matter. He is going down. Watching this bully go down is invigorating. Trump is acting like he knows he is going down. That doesn't matter either. What matters is he has lost and is going down. We won, and the bully is going down.

I look for things,here there and everywhere. I discovered a trick that helps a lot.

I leave things, and then can't find them. It may be over here or over there, or in here or in that drawer. ...

Here is the trick......6 step approach. (NO, you do not have to read a book, and this ain't costing anything, so do not blame me if it does not work...)

Step 1. Try as best as you can to keep surfaces clean..We have all kinds of surfaces in our places, and if you can
keep them clean, and empty of stuff, then you have a better chance of finding it.

Step 2. Once you have as many clean surfaces that you can manage. please try to keep those surfaces clean
and clutter free.

Step 3. You got a thing and it is important, you want to use it again soon, or it is important to know where it is.
.............So, you place it on one of the clean surfaces, where you can see it and say to yourself..This is
.............is where the stapler is. Look at it. Walk away.

Step 4 Now when you look for the stapler that staples papers together, you look around to those surfaces and ,you know where you put it.


Step 5.. You are looking for the stapler, and don't know where you put it, you look at the surfaces where stuff is, and there is the stapler.

Step 6...If you are sure you are concentrating, on that item, perhaps you can put the thing in a drawer, and say to yourself. I put the stapler in that drawer in the kitchen. or I am putting it on that surface over there.

_______________________________________________________________________________________

I know, you don't think this one will work..OK. I understand..Sounds kind of silly. But, if you have an important note, or thing, and you don't have enough time to put it away, putting that note or thing in a place that is easy to see will save a lot of time. Of course, things do have their place in drawers and closets, yes, this is for people like me who are in a rush, and don't want to put it away,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,

...THEN PUT IT SOMEWHERE WHERE YOU CAN SEE THAT THING. PUT IT AWAY LATER IN A PLACE WHERE YOU ARE SURE YOU WILL FIND IT, LIKE IN A CORRECT DRAWER OR CLOSET.

Guess what? That is it and that is all. What the hell am I doing up on the computer at 3:27am my time, Central Time..???? talking about loosing and finding stuff... ??got to hide
