If I owned a dairy that made cottage cheese, I'd call it "bungalow cheese" instead. Cottages and bungalows are both small houses, but "bungalow" is more fun to say.

"Cottage" sounds like a noise a frog or insect would make. "Bungalow" sounds more like an incantation that would open a magic door or lure a genie from a bottle.

Because of what I call Forest Gump like coincidence I have known Mob bosses all my life starting with the big boss meeting in my hometown of Appalacain NY , between Owego and Vestal. I have seen bosses get away with crimes via witness tampering or murder, but only at first. Eventually the boss gets caught red handed or eliminated.

As a therapist in pre Soprano times I had a Mob boss from Irondiquoit as a client during the A team B team wars in NY. He brought his body guard with him for his session. When my secretary came in the back door with McDonalds there was a dramatic moment.

I even heard the long drawn out roar of an explosion of the car that killed a different boss, I accidently learned that the police knew of the hit ahead of time. Later a nurse who treated the boss who was car bombed told me he was in one piece but died slowly of pressure induced massive capillary bleed.

A previous tenent left a list of victims that had already been eliminated and the list was found under the sink. Against all odds I even met Mr. Gambino and others via car dealership associations in Buffalo NY.

There were more shocking coincidences that I hesitate to mention that the police wanted me to cover up. It involved the mob stealing back evidence and heroin from a State Police station. I had the recording of the details off a special radio receiver that preceded microwave telephones. What seemed to stop these string of coincidences
was simply getting married and retiring from hypnosis.

Anyway Trump is a bit like a mob boss and I expect he will face a similar fate once loyalty becomes too costly.

Mom!

It's February First! Does that mean idiots will finally stop wishing me Happy New Year?

Has it ever occurred to you that years don't get to have birthdays? When they get to be a year old, POOF! They're gone!

Just when we've gotten* used to having a year around, someone kills it off and foists a new one on us.

Don't plan on making a cake that says, "Happy Birthday 2020!" You'd be wasting your time.

What if they did that with puppies? "Here's a cute little puppy, kid, but don't get too attached to it. A year from now, we're gonna kill it and give you a new one!"

I wonder if 2020 knows that it's doomed? Eleven months from now and it's gonna be defenestrated.


* Have you noticed that our British cousins have abandoned "gotten" as the past participle of "get" and use "got" for both past and past participle? Still sounds wrong to me.)

Yes, on December 31st, they'll coax 2020 way up high in some skyscraper overlooking Times Square. "Come one, 2020, you've gotta see this cool disco ball! And this is the best viewpoint in the world!"

And as soon as that glittery ball starts dropping, they'll push poor old 2020 out a window. And nobody will notice or care. They'll be so busy being all goo-goo over cute little 2021 that they won't even see 2020's poor carcass lying on the sidewalk smashed so flat it'll make a pancake look like a major mountain range.

We live in a bungalow. (Everyone in UK calls our type of house by this Hindi/Urdu word, derived from 'bangla') Bungalows used to be regarded/disparaged as houses for the elderly, being on one floor only. But I've seen recently that young families prize them, having no stairs and quite large gardens. Ours has gone up considerably in value during the last ten years. (up by £50,000!!!)
There are dozens of words from the Raj days in our language. Gymkhana, juggernaut, chutney etc.

What's unique about 02/02/2020 is that it's a palindrome in all four date notation formats. It doesn't matter if you use dd/mm/yyyy, mm/dd/yyyy, yyyy/dd/mm, or yyyy/mm/dd.

Next year, there'll be a palindrome date (12/02/2021) but it will indicate December 2nd in mm/dd/yyyy and February 12th in dd/mm/yyyy, and doesn't work in either year-first format.

The next "universal" palindrome date will be 03/03/3030. I don't plan on being around to see it.

"Bungalow" is a very good word. But I don't see it replacing "cabin" as a trope in American country and bluegrass music. "There's a bungalow in the pines..." doesn't quite have that bluegrass thang goin' on.

I suppose we could make a concerted effort to have The Beatles' "Bungalow Bill" elevated to bluegrass standard status, but we'd probably meet some resistance from the Bill Monroe worshiping hardcore purist crowd.

Mom!

There are going to be thirteen full moons this year! I know this because some Internet news site's headline made a big deal out of it.

According to my calculations, based on an average lunar month length of roughly 29.53 days, there will be thirteen full moons in about one year out of three.

By that website's criteria, I suppose the fact that the last day of this year falls on a Thursday is an even bigger deal since it only happens one year out of seven.

Corinthian leather
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Corinthian leather is a term coined by the advertising agency Bozell to describe the upholstery used in certain Chrysler luxury vehicles. The term first appeared in advertising in 1974. Although this is merely a marketing concept, it suggests that the term—not the product—was inspired from the more elaborate and impressive ancient Greek column of the Corinthian order.

While the term was first used during the marketing campaign for the 1974 Imperial LeBaron, it is usually associated with the marketing campaign beginning with the 1975 Cordoba and that campaign's celebrity spokesperson, Ricardo Montalbán, who described the thickly-cushioned luxury of seats "available even in fine (alternately, "soft" or "rich") Corinthian leather".

Much of the leather used in Chrysler vehicles during the era originated from a supplier located outside Newark, New Jersey.

Some sources say the term refers to the combination of leather seating surfaces and vinyl seat sides. However, most cars worldwide with "leather upholstery" have matching color vinyl seat bases and often the rear faces of the front seats, the head rests, and the door facings. The standard term in period car catalogs was "leather with vinyl", and sometimes "leather seat facings". When Montalbán was asked by David Letterman on Late Night with David Letterman what the term meant, the actor cheerfully admitted that the term meant nothing.


You mean rich Corinthian leather was a lie? A fabrication? A big bucket of marketing bullshit?

No wonder the subject seems so at home here on the MOAB.

Funny; I was talking to a guy at Petsmart the other day about pickup trucks. He had an old one that turned out to be only 1993. I had a 1980 three-in-the-tree F100 I finally sold in about 1997. As he remarked - it had a great straight six - around which I had always thought there was enough room under the hood to store luggage (if it had been enclosed in a way to keep it in).

I had two F-100 pickups, a '64 and a '77. Both had straight sixes, three-speed column shifters, and enough room under the hood to pitch a tent. But neither had rich Corinthian leather upholstery! In fact, I'm not sure the '64 had any upholstery at all. It had seats, but what was on top of those seats might well have been a dog's blanket that the dog threw out.

That truck had rather high ladder racks on it that once caused it to get stuck in a parking garage. I had to let about half the air out of the tires to get it unstuck.
