Interests: Fishing, obviously. Lately I have gotten into vegetable gardening, with mixed success so far. I love works about history, American and otherwise, cooking good food and accompanying that with some good drink, if you know what I mean. I love a good political debate when people of different perspectives, but good will, talk in good faith. Er, or I mostly miss that.

My buddy Mark sent me an old photo the other day from a trip some of us took to Isle Royale in the early to mid-1990s: Early October and the resorts had shut down. (L to R): My friends Ray,... Continue reading

The only thing I remember about Schlitz was the "If you're out of Schlitz, your out of beer commercial." I'm sure I drank it baqck in the day, but then, back in the day we weren't too choosy.

It's not as popular as it used to be, but it has a loyal following still.
I think you got me there. I probably saw it when it made it to broadcast TV a few years later.
I think he'll get a couple of years at most from the US and then we'll see if he goes back to his old tricks. He may have had his fill of celebrity.

Could see 71 on Saturday. I think we're finally done with the snow. Could still have some flooding problems. There's a lot of water headed your way.

Yeah, the gay people I know don't want to go there. They may choose not to go to Chick-fil-A, but they don't make a big deal out of it. The battle is over and they won after all.

Apparently the San Jose city council is now the go-to place for really futile and stupid gestures: Then we have Pete Buttigieg ginning up a spat with Mike Pence. It seems some people want to fight culture battles they won... Continue reading

So far not as much snow as predicted, but it's wet and heavy glop. A good old fashioned "heart attack" snow. This afternoon we've been treated with a couple of rounds of thunder sleet: And no, that's not a black... Continue reading

The Mohamed Noor trial opened today and the Strib story on it has another one of those weird things that drive me crazy: Earlier, during the opening statements, [prosecutor]Lofton said that ballistics testing and an autopsy found that the 5-foot-7... Continue reading

Pretty much every announced Democrat candidate for president spent the weekend kissing Al Sharpton's ring and pledging support for the "study" of slavery reparations in the US. Clearly the best path to improving the lives of blacks in the US... Continue reading
