There's a recent concert in London by Leonard Cohen that plays on PBS. The man is old, maybe there's still hope for my musical ambitions?

Argh, my cable connection went t/u for two days. They're working in the building and the signal to the modem became too hot. Always something.

Above us spin Pin points in infinity brightly shining their lives away in cloud Nebula, Nurserys for the Solar engines pouring out the star dust our bodies our made of, Dead Stars shinning more brightly in her eyes than ever they did in the perfected heavens.

George Beauty does not wait, she never waits, but rushes into our up lifted arms, our open hearts... and swings open every door and tosses aside the curtains to greet a new and beautiful word being eternally reborn this very morning!

With a great big George right in the middle of it all! Don't wait for death to become alive.":O}

Forty years ago today I climbed onto my freedom bird and flew away from Viet-Nam. On my uncle's birthday, he also was a veteran of that out of place war. Happy Birthday Ken, wish you were still here.

"Money won't change you. But time will take you out." Sang James Brown. A friend met his band at a truck stop in Washington state. He called me about it and was quite chuffed. Me too.

You mean I'll have to turn the heat on? Oh noes, electric heat is expensive. Quit complaining, there's way too many folks without heat and too many more without a place to need it.

The attraction of the antipodes beckons. After you realize you'll still be the same old you anywhere, the travel agent will move on to the next customer.

Thinking about it, I suppose Mars is the antipodes today? Yet there's no point in going there, robots do it nearly as well as people could. Not to mention that the amount of money needed would be unreal. Not to worry, a new war will probably take the place of that expense and effort.

Gotta destroy that excess capacity. Too bad that people aren't kept away from production areas that will need to go.

Everything is beautiful in its own way. Bah, humbug. I disagree.

Wouldn't it be great if politicians had no real power? Too bad that running a country is such hard work. That gives us a good excuse to leave it in the hands of the unworthy. Argh.

They don't. They gave up the power to govern in favor of personal wealth...they sold out.
