HAPPY NEW YEAR 2012 AND THE ENGINE OF TIME

My Christmas and New Year season has been largely devoted to reading as much as possible about the antiquated and quite destructed cities of Pompeii and Herculaneum, Italy, as also the surrounding areas that included other equally destroyed settlements (Stabiae, Opiontis, Boscoreale with additional architectural remains and explorations found in the neighboring area at Boscocetrasae, […]

“THE LAST CENTURION”

Reading an online publish of THE LAST CENTURION by author, John Ringo. I’ll buy a copy of the book but for tonight, reading it online. Suggest others do so, too. Caution: not PG-language, should that sort of thing bother anyone. But the fascinating story and blunt, harsh-talk is set in a very credible, possible near-future […]

CAP’N’TRADE & NATIONALIZED “HEALTHCARE”: GOVERNMENT GONE NUTS

How many voters does it take to get the United States Congress (and Executive Branch) to respond to the voters’ opinions? Democrats — and Barack Obama — “won” but their concept of that “win” is to do whatever they want to do without regard for anything (or anyone) else. They’re running over the American public […]

CONGRESSIONAL DEMOCRATS INSANE OR CORRUPT. ONE WAY OR THE OTHER, THEY ARE ALL IRRATIONAL TODAY.

The wrongly-named “Stimulus Package” gets out of the Senate today, an hour or so ago, and Harry Reid is at this moment lying before the world that “the one thing we can’t do is do nothing” right after he mumbles, “the American people are suffering.” Yeah, we’re suffering alright.

NOT POLICY, NOT SECURE, BUT OBAMA SAYS HE CAN DO IT IF HE WANTS

This is becoming worse than the National Nightmare Pie, it’s loose and irresponsible to a point of way-past-scary: Barack Obama is told to lose the Blackberry (d’oh — it’s not a secure means of communication and, d’oh, he’s supposed to be, soon, the President of the United States of America, and, d’oh, connect those two […]

MICRO NEAT

Called the ‘micro car,’ the vehicle has an overall length of 1.99 meters and works on lithium-ion batteries. The company, based in Toyama, northern Japan, said on a full charge, it can cruise a […]

IMAGINATION, STARS and STITCHES IN TIME

“Imagine” by Bette Haddon, First Place Winner, National Quilting Association’s 2003 Show The Earth has once again been saved from a burst of doom, given that by this hour, the “small asteroid” that was headed our way passed us by at 2:08 PST. I heard about the incoming event only this morning, just about daybreak, […]

MANY HOUSES

SUBSETS AND SUNSETS The announcement yesterday about the discovery of “Sedna” planetoid orbiting our sun, at the known edge of our solar system, had me wondering earlier this morning: discovered last November, announced this (mid) March, and all that dialogue going on in the interim, dialogue I’d be interested in reading a record of. If […]
