About Me

Henderson (Las Vegas suburb) now has recreational mj! Info if you want to go to Vegas and enjoy your stay even more: There are several stores around town that sell rec mj. Google to find them. Apparently there are a couple of them on The Strip. The problem is that there are no places a tourist can smoke it - unless you have friends in town. Try getting edibles. Stores are quite busy, but not too bad on a weekday. Wait time to get in: half an hour. Another wait in line to get a "budtender." The clerk takes your ID and a container for your stuff. Tell'em what you want, they get it, and put your container in a line of containers behind checkout. They call your name when you can pay. There is a lot of tax, like 18% above and beyond the 8% sales tax. The budtenders know that people are new to this and they are very nice. I watched and I did not see anybody photocopy my ID. You can buy the equivalent of 1 ounce per person per day. Each product has an ounce equivalent. Relax! How many mass shootings take place twice in the same place? Casinos and hotels have upped security a lot lately and that won't be going away.

100 Years Ago Today

The Bolsheviks slaughtered the Emperor and Empress of Russia and their children.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Execution_of_the_Romanov_family

I really don't know how I feel about it.

I'm Recovering from the Flu

I don't think it was food poisoning because I hadn't eaten anything new or unusual in the 24 hour preceding. And I looked up the symptoms and they were a bit different.

I started getting chills and fever yesterday afternoon. That's very off because I usually run warm. I was upstairs, which is noticeably warmer than downstairs, but I had to put a blanket around me. I was very tired and slightly nauseated.

I went downstairs to watch TV and I slept some, watched some. I finally woke up around 11pm, sweatier than I have been in years, but not feverish. Yaayy! The fever was broken!

This morning, I'm feeling a bit weak and like a wrung out dishrag, but waay better than I was yesterday.

If there is something going around, good luck to everybody. The only good news is that the worst of it will last about a day.

Two Questions on the Trump Tower Security Videos

That I haven't seen discussed here.

1. Where did he get them? Building security videos aren't easily accessible by just anyone. Somebody had to send them to Avenatti.

2. What else does he have? This one may have been just a warning shot. I'm hoping that there's one with chumpy himself with another shadowy player with a damning timestamp.

Weird Weather Forecast

I went to weather.com to check the conditions today and something strange is going on.

It's partly in German.

The line where you can see hourly and for the next ten day forecasts reads
Heute Stündlich 5 Tage 10 Tage Wochenende Monatlich Karten

Huh.

There's more:

There's a Lokale Pollenwarnung (pollen warning, as if I didn't know)

Today's gefülte is 58 degrees.

Jetzt conditions are Feuchte 59%, Taupunkt 44 degrees, Luftdruck 29.89 and rising, Sichweite 10.0 mi.

The Nächste 36 Stunden shows Today 68, Tonight 54, DO 80, DO Nacht 61, and FR 87 (these are obviously Fahrenheit temps, starting off in English then switching to German).

Has this ever happened to anyone else? Are they having fun with me because I refuse to turn off the adblocker?

Cute Penguins!

What happens when you tickle a penguin?




Turn the sound DOWN!!



This Is My First Time Seeing It

Let me add these wise words by Lawrence O'Donnell:

What did Liberals do that was so offensive to the Republican Party?
I'll tell you what they did. Liberals got women the right to vote.
Liberals got African Americans the right to vote.
Liberals created Social Security and lifted millions of elderly people out of poverty.
Liberals ended segregation.
Liberals passed the Civil Rights Act, the Voting Rights Act.
Liberals created Medicare.
Liberals passed the Clean Air Act, the Clean Water Act.

What did Conservatives do?
They opposed them on every one of those things, every one. So when you try to hurl that label at my feet, "Liberal," as if it were something to be ashamed of, something dirty, something to run away from, it won't work, because I will pick up that label and I will wear it as a badge of honor.


This Song Cracks Me Up Every Time



Hallelujah Parody - Letter to Wayne LaPierre, NRA

Good lines and great harmony.




Note: I have no connection (except a 3rd on LinkedIn) to this guy. I just think he deserves to be seen and heard.

A Song about the Parkland Massacre

Usually Parody Project does funny songs, but this one is properly serious and respectful. It is based on Shakira's Illegal and is called The Country's Heart (The Parkland Eulogy).




I have no connection to the people who do Parody Project, but I think they deserve links and likes.
