About Me

65 years old. Lifelong democrat. Saw JFK in New Haven CT on election eve 1960. I was all of 5 years old. Cast my first vote for Jimmy Carter. Stayed up all night at the English Speaking Union I London to watch the returns. We celebrated the results about 9 AM London time. I cried the morning I learned Bobby Kennedy had been shot. I don't think I ever quite recovered, although President Obama's election helped a lot. These days I'm a moderate democrat and a cultural conservative. I miss the world of good manners, fancy dress and dancing cheek to cheek. Big TCM fan.

Journal Archives

American Patrol- Glenn Miller

We won the War because we had songs like this!

Summer Wind - Frank Sinatra

Not too much of a Sinatra fan, but this one's pretty good.

Dedicated to twogunsid!

There are those of us who love what you do!

I think vaccinations should be mandatory

I don't agree with mask mandates, but the solution is obvious. Every employer should require them. Every venue should require proof of vaccination. WWII could do mandatory rationing. The casualties are about the same.
Every where you damn go you have to carry your vax card like a driver's licence. The damn things should have been smaller to fit into your wallet.

It's Been a Long, Long Time - Bing Crosby

It was December 1945 and ever so slowly the boys were coming home from all over the world. And everyone was singing this song!

Gran'ma Plays the Numbers - Sy Oliver

In the 70s and 80s Sy Oliver led the house band at the Rainbow Room high above the streets of Manhatten. This one from 1949 is just for fun.

Moonlight in Vermont - Ella Fitzgerald and friend

Touring New England today.

Old Cape Cod - Patti Page

Can't drive to Provincetown without thinking of this one

The Arizona Audit is apparently doing a recount of their recount.


Apparently they have figured out that their first recount by hand was inaccurate and are doing a machine recount which is matching the original official results.
Ken Bennett, the liaison from the state Senate. to the Cyber Ninjas, has been banned from the floor where the audit is taking place.
The new recount is counting ballots not votes. But if it differs substantially from their sloppy hand count, I would think they will have to do another hand count

Elusive Butterfly- Bob Lind

Basically the poster boy for one hit wonders in the mid 60s.
Pretty good song though.
