You Thought You Had Heard It All? ***

 Uh, uh, oh  no.  Here is the latest headlined fiasco between two of the human specie.

Cookies? Woo, it is escalating, people.

Let us be prepared. Keep close watch is my good advice to you.

Look at those beady, unrepentent eyes!  Makes me wonder what she might do over a Thin Mint patty.  I'm partial to thin mints. hmm.

Police: Dispute over Thin Mints gets physical

Fla. (AP) — Police say a brawl between roommates over Girl Scout cookies led to assault charges against one of them. According to the Naples Daily News, the Collier County Sheriff's Office reports that 31-year-old Hersha Howard woke up her roommate early Sunday and accused her of eating her Thin Mints.

They argued and deputies say that it turned physical with Howard chasing her roommate with scissors and hitting her repeatedly with a board and then a sign.

Police say the roommate's husband tried to separate them. The roommate said she gave the cookies to Howard's children.

Howard is charged with aggravated battery with a deadly weapon and aggravated assault with a deadly weapon. She was released Monday on $10,000 bail ...

Over To Your Left ***

in 'My Blog List' is Dahr Jamail's newest posting.  It deals with the crisis from the Gulf Oil spill of last spring. Words from those who are suffering.  This is a fearful crisis that still exists.  I know of several, family and friends who continually have been sick for several months with pneumonia, bronchitis, flu, cold, pain, nausea. All live in Florida. Their doctors give a look of consternation; never heard anything of the situation.  Duh!!!  Lack of communication going on.  Read it; you will be concerned as I am.
You won't catch me eating fish but rarely.  Salmon, yes but where is it coming from? Commercially raised.   Cod is mentioned as toxic - cod is a very popular fish on restaurant menus.  Mr. Jamail writes of other specific areas where the waters are teeming with toxins/pollution.

Nothing is Worth This, Nothing! ***

Gaze into the eyes.  Then remember Albright's and others response to "Was it worth it?"

Something is terribly wrong.  Terribly.

People I Have Read About ***

People I Have Read About

It was February 16, 1959.  A man with a big cigar becomes Prime Minister of a small island.  I remember this. It was the middle of my last semester of high school-working toward graduation.   Ahead was jubilation, freedom.
Who can forget the emotions felt when walking off stage holding that document?  Along with a feeling of freedom though was this fear.  Fear of the unknown future.
I wed in August of that year but always woven into a happy life were the threads of world-size chaos, somewhere or other. You know, it has always been the situation in each of our lives.  War.  All the way back to just short of the beginning, I would surmise.

Reading this news item is a supplement to a biography of Fidel Castro I read a couple of years ago.  By the time I'd finished this biography, I was very impressed and also "on his side "for justice".  He was on a crusade from the way I saw it.  I see he was up against unfair players.  Yet the picture I'd gotten from our news waves, Castro was "Bad"; easy way to say it.  Same way it is today; we aren't getting the true picture of all affairs when it comes from the controlled media, controlled everything.  Ah, to feel freedom in all ways!
Castro is aged now, an old man.  From his picture I see much of who he is.

Emperor Norton
Funny, when I read the first line, I thought of someone else. Have you heard of "Emperor Norton"?  I don't know that he smoked a big cigar.  He did make royal proclamations to the citizenry though.  The emperor type should be smoking a big cigar to make him look serious - and Mr. Norton was serious - I think - in a happy go lucky way. The city well remembers him  still today.

Found "Emperor of San Francisco" in Wikipedia.  Very interesting.  He was a pauper and surely had a mental aberration: then again, maybe not.  He was a crusader too in my opinion.  Yet you know how I and my opinions are at times.  Anyway, if you get a chance, read about this character.  A real part of history.

There is also "The Leatherman", another personage in real life.  Hermit posted about the Leatherman yesterday. Hermit always posts well.  I don't know how he locates all his tidbits of information.  He'd make a good school teacher; that Hermit.

The one called Leatherman wore a complete suit of clothes made from pieces of leather that he had created for himself.  Another very interesting character from real life in the past. You can find him at Wikipedia too.

This dayin February 2011 is ticking right along, too fast perhaps. I see it is afternoon already.  What a glorious day it is too.  In moments I will go hang a couple of blankets outside to dry.  Luxurious sleep tonight! Smell that airy freshness.

Frying a couple of sweet potatoes - experimenting.  Put a few slices to dehydrating, just to see how they do.  Got another idea of a project using the sweet potatoes but won't speak of it yet.  I'll see about it after the drying is finished.  If the idea works, I'll show you the result in a picture one day.

Well, I must get in gear again.  Time's awastin'.  Oh, let's hope we see no more snow this winter.  A sunny day like this one spoils me rotten quickly.

Humorous Remarks ***

 Getting up at 2 am doesn't bode well for a functioning brain, so this is all I have to share.

I read this article that said the typical symptoms of stress are eating too much, impulse buying, and driving too fast. Are they kidding? That's my idea of a perfect day!

Just when I was getting used to yesterday, along came today.

Sometimes I think I understand everything, and then I regain consciousness.
