G'day all.

You should have heard Northwind blow in last night. Around 2200 Sierra time, and I listened to it till I drifted off into dreamland. Take a howler to have such stage presence.
Nearly dead calm now so just cold. Winds like listened to last night make a 70F day seem chilly. Were they still howling the windchills would be single digits- maybe negative numbers brrrrrrrrrrrrrr...

Posted before, but think it be my favorite tune over the last 5 years.
Next up on the playlist

Hope Ma smiles on us all; especially those too stupid to not just stay home when Ma be suggesting it is a good idea.

My brother took a test, the results of which I've kvetched about before at some point.
Half English.and Scottish?
Our American adventure has been well documented, so if any haggis-related cross-pollinating took place, it had to have taken place on your side of the pond.

All I know is I saw an 18th century statue of one of my ancestors and he had that same large, irrepressible, slightly misshapen nose.
Go figure...
:lol:
You are more British than me then..:laugh2:

I know that on my mother's side, some left Switzerland for Pennsylvania, Ohio , Indiana, perhaps Mennonites. I'll have to look into that in more depth as I will with my dad's side where some also went to America.

Loved em both. Never heard of either but that Aurora vid had 63+ million views (guess it is a much bigger world than some would like to think).
So sick of so much pop music that I listen to Mongol Metal and the Russian equivalent to 'Americana' on the tube and have no idea of what is current on any cultural phenomenon. Both reinforced my opinion that by and large, the kids are alright.

not ALL of the kids are alright . the 2 women that I posted above are mostly popular in other parts of the world ( meaning : not The States ) . as far as female performers that have gained momentum in this country lately

street thug seems to be the theme


40 million views for Jesse Reyes ( I will admit that I like her voice )

g mornings and afternoons . and Happy Holidays to those who are celebrating :applause:

The Sun is just starting to rise here . and the high temp for today is lading at 36F/2C . no wind outside __ so the kitchen windows are wide open while I'm having coffee . Laura was up for one cup with me , but decided to lay down for a couple of hours . she doesn't always share my excitement in the morning . no matter how obnoxious the music selection is


for anyone here that has a Netflix subscription . a friend turned me on to a documentary about the Laurel Canyon ( California ) music scene during the late 60s and early 70s . the name of the program is " Echo In The Canyon " . many guest appearances . including Tom Petty __ so it must have been made a few years ago . very interesting . I watched half of it last night , and will finish it sometime this weekend

Speaking of the Laurel Canyon scene, you might like a darker take by this investigative journalist. Roberteaux turned me on to this blog (which I Read in one sitting!) and later sent me the book that it became, "Weird Scenes in the Canyon". Pretty cool. Don't agree 100% with his conclusions (cause I'm not an idiot) but lots of obscure factoids and strange connections. If you were ever an acid head, it's rather mind blowing.

In bed now so will give those music vids Charlie and Art posted a listen tomorrow.

Anyone heard from Frank since the accident?
I hope Mel is on the mend after breaking her arm.
Melinda says thank you! She was fitted for a brace after seeing a specialist. So a cast wasn't necessary. Even though the break was nasty (broke into more than two pieces, with at least one shard) it was not as awful as the x-Ray looked. (She saw it). If immobilized the humerus will heal by itself in 90% of cases. She'll go back next week for another x-Ray to make sure it's knitting as it should. If not, surgery might be called for...which she dreaded. So fingers crossed.

A friend of ours worked for the transportation cabinet in accident reconstruction. She said it was nothing short of miraculous we escaped with so few injuries and in fact even survived. Trying to feel lucky this Thanksgiving. :oops:

After a week of Internet shopping, correspondence and haggling I found a serviceable used truck with relatively low mileage, good Carfax record, newish tires and a reasonable price from a dealership with a good reputation. Will pick it up tomorrow. In the meantime I'm driving my son's sporty Mitsubishi Eclipse. :laugh2:

Thanks Dom. Still haven't had time to digest it all. I'm doing everything right now as Mel's in a lot of pain. She detests painkillers but at this point the pain is debilitating and she can't sleep because of it. So understandably her energy is low. But, it's a little better every day.
At first I felt guilty for injuring my wife. Irrational I know. But we tend to find ways to punish ourselves when we lose control of reality. I really don't understand how someone could intentionally injure their wife or children. It's bad enough when it's accidental.

Thanks for posting that link . will have to read it tomorrow __ as I don't want to just skim the page . I wonder if it will match up with things that I've heard or read about the start of the hippie movement

I dunno. It's pretty out there, but not unbelievable. He's done some other investigative subjects, the last of which was The Pedocracy. About institutionalized pedophilia in churches and governments. Basically elite deviance and how entrenched it is.

And Epstein didn't commit suicide. *cough* :laugh2:

Still not had time to catch up today but have just popped in before hitting the zzzzz's to say hello.
Glad to hear Mel is on the mend and tell her to take it easy while it's healing.
Feet up gal while Frank prepares some culinary delights.
As you said, luckily you both came out of it pretty much unscathed which is at least something to be thankful for I suppose... :cheers: Also good news that you managed to find a decent set of wheels as a replacement.
I've been cooking this evening and had we had access to a teleporter I could have beamed you both over a Kashmiri chicken Rogan Josh with Pillau rice..:laugh2:

Ooh. Looks yummy!
Hm. Food might be the next big paradigm in 3D printers. :hmm:

You could just give me the recipe and voila. :laugh2:

Nothing fancy from me this evening. Roast chicken breasts with rice and steamed veggies. I'm flat-out beat from dishes, laundry, vacuuming and then my other duties. It's been a rough week. Kinda frazzled.
