Nenana Ice Classic - TriPod down!

Happened yesterday but it’s hanging on. Pretty sure it’s gonna stop the clock today.


Ice cam at link.

I have five guesses today starting at 2:26pm AK time. Beginners luck may help me win. Hope so!

On edit: time is Standard time so…per KTUU—

“As a reminder, the winning time is posted in Standard Time. Since Alaska is currently in Daylight Saving Time, one hour must be subtracted from the current time. Clocks in Alaska were advanced one hour on March 13. For example, if the anchor and rope cause the clock to stop at 5 p.m., the winning time will be posted as 4 p.m.

This year’s jackpot is listed at $222,101.“

Dangit! Now over an hour to wait till my first guess of the day is viable. And the tripod seems to be slowly moving.

In case you missed it Pastafarians


Found in DU Lounge forum.

Who dunnit?!

Duncanpup why?

Are you making pancakes for the dogs?

…they don’t know how!

Bow Wow!

Will Rep. Dave Eastman survive "disloyalty" charge?

The Oathkeeper who did not participate in Jan 6 is on trial because the Oathkeepers are domestic terrorists. AK has a law preventing a person from holding office if they are a member of an organization that promotes overthrowing or tries to overthrow the government.

Unfortunately, I bet he will survive this nonjury trial. According to the article he easily won re-election so obviously his constituency doesn’t care. If it is up to just one judge, it is likely the judge won’t take his office away. We will see.


Pelosi In The House

I watched this HBO documentary last night. Recommend.

Alexandera Pelosi filmed (over 3 decades), produced and directed this “in the life of” story of the first woman speaker of the house AND the first person to be re-elected to the position after losing control in midterm elections.

Personally, I had mixed emotions. It made me feel so proud for her …and it triggered my tRump PTSD.

I am proud of her accomplishments and her will to do the work of the people and super proud of her love for children. I am so glad she was in this position during the tRump debacle admin.


Idiocracy averted?

For now?

Really, I thought tRump was the tip of the iceberg.
But Herschel Walker as a candidate for US Senate is preposterous! Yet, he was. And the people of GA hopefully have taken us a step in the right direction.
Thanks to all those in GA that voted.

Or else…. A tiny reminder…


Another One Bites The Dust!



Watching the 2022 Rock N Roll Hall of Fame induction on HBO

One of the best parts was John Mellencamp introducing Allen Grubman’s induction.

John said “ fuck antisemitism “ ! And a few other things. Here’s an article about that and it includes a link to video of John if you haven’t seen it.


Also, Allen Grubman is Jewish by the way…AND a co-founder of the Rock N Roll Hall of Fame. We wouldn’t have the hall of fame without this Jewish lawyer.

And BTW…Fuck you YE (or Kanye) or whoever you are today and tomorrow. Fuck all of you pieces of shit that hate.

Another vid here.


Big sigh of relief yesterday

Mary Peltola won her seat again. I felt confident of this.

But holy crap. The first results on the Senate vote was very alarming! Good thing Lisa Murkowski pulled it out. Sorry to say on the Republican side but Tshibaka is a F.R.E.A.K. Like maybe worse than MTG. REALLY.

SO GLAD! These two strong women kept their seats.

Tshibaka. No no no no. Please no never

Magnitude 5.0 quake near Anchorage!

My first.

Dog hated it!
