Meow meow, the Gypse King is back on his wagon. Hurry, get on. Joe's been a small change schmoozer from day the pocket of the DuPonts, Rockerfellers and BigCoal the blackened copper river king salmon fish crowd. Rest assured..Joe will keep his hands on the Ouija Board Golda Meir gave him. So it seems out here on the Hood Canal. ted
Pat to make an 11 (right now anyway) luck is about all we have going for us. Best 2021 to all here. ted

Hi again (your meat preps). Pat, first: what did you use for spices on top/bottom of the swordfish..I'm assuming you didn't marinate it, but... Second, Moroccan spice territory. Do you buy it "whole" or put it together yourself? Get back when you can, thanks, stay well, ted

What's the "good stuff formula" more or less?

Really! sad numbers Pat. Your "El Muerto" story was a refreshing start to Sunday morning. Thanks. ted
Pat I pulled up/scrolled the Nueske Family site. Interesting/thanks! Their selection takes me back as a kid going with my "baba" up to the Ferry Market and saugage shops on Chene St in Hamtramck (late 30s/40s). Do you have any "taste experience" to share with their Kielbasa or Brats?

Re who gets can'r come on line soon enough. Reality check, even on a good day, T & B with be in the ground looking up before NFR's will be spitting kws our way.
Pat ton appel (if): the country would be hugely prosperous and Trump would have clear sailing to re-election. Agreed a hugely prosperous country (read the Dow at 30k plus) a better than even chance he's in. The Dow & Economy as is today its a hard way crap shoot IMO. Pat he has a second RE-ELECTION card not to be discounted. It's "the war of some dimension" floating at the top of his chanber pot. Punt.
Pat..come on. Tweaking the Obamas, Clintons and me the Cone Head Family are other subjects. I was addressing your inference that the Trump family is running the country in a well and prosperous manner. Hardly. Running the country on an overnight 4 trillion dollar plus credit card charge and dribbling out dixi cups Less Taxes Kool Aid is pushing the standard definition of a well run prosperous country.
Come on Pat.. the Cone Head family runs a "well run country."
Good pencil, thanks.
Re: A lot of people die every day of a variety of causes. This virus is a reaper that culls the population, eliminating the weak and the old. The great majority of healthy, productive people survive infection with little or no apparent effect. The last or only time this brushed me was with polio in Detroit in the 50's. Following your "re-open the country, all of it" swimming pools and Belle Isle would never have been closed would have remained open in August and September to allow nature to thin-out Detroit's/the country's weakest. That's your C19 call as I read it.
Given with all the mickymouse going on..I'd go with "just sits." Justa nice bit of reflectioning/writing. Thanks, ted
96 Senate votes for Socialism..not a single vote against. Democratic socialism/call it what you will, comes to the rescue of Democratic capitalism. As for 2 Trillion (and ciunting!) ... Congress/POTUS are putting it on our and our kids CCs. The buggers in Congress have drilled an election financing hole (in only a week 10 days!) that makes Citizen United look like pocket change. PS: If Nancy wanted to sink Biden she got it done. Just who she has in mind I can only guess but I'd bet good money it's not Bernie. The "old lady" knew two things "going in." One: that before it was over Hunter would be front and center. And Two: her chance was weak to none that she could get McConnell to call up witnessess in the Senate. Just where she and the Dems go from here is her/their problem. Appologies for the sour note. Stay well all, ted
Pat thanks for the remembrances the Chet Baker and Julie London pieces are untarnished gold.

Gradual, tentative, conditionally, proof test period = 7 days...IMO more gypse talk for the hard of hearing. What are the odds that next year this time the combined troop and contractor numbers in Afghanistan will be in the multiple Ks?
Bingo..Pat. Neocon kabuki is back for a run. Rats. Can the US budget support the realities of Belt to World China? Or have we already been sucked in?
Vet, Respectfully: "The Afghanistan Invasion was necessary." MIC-Cold War Kool-aid talk, come on, you're better than that.
Soban's "far left" opinion it goes. For me Matt Taibbi and his dad wear 12s
Good on you Diana..well spent time indeed.

"....they don’t wish to admit that the drones are Iranian-made and were able to dodge the radars that are deployed in the region...." Incoming cloaking or dodging seems to be central given our/Israeli silence re publishing (surface or stelllite) telemetry. Perhaps it doesn't matter..diversion or not. That the Aramco installation got seriously ripped I suspect does. lAC does anyone have a clue if Aramco itself or under DOD contract posess "the best" 24/7active air defence cover whatevers?
Gypse King has still got (us-a) by the short hair. Lets see if he will comit the USAF-DOD to "dome" Aramco? Ie one has to (a) wonder if DOD has more of its eggs (or MIC head) in the offensive or defensive basket and (b) where the Rational Actor Model fits in
The stcrict enforcement of a Made In America for all US GOV and private contractor defence and security purchases to include component parts and leaseholds. A Made In America policy similar to/not unlike that for WW2 aircraft purchases.

Fair enough..and the end isn't in sight.
