There are some REALLY funny things in literature, from Europe,
about St. Martin's feast time.
Like Friedrich Rückert's poem ...
I'm mightily tempted to post it ...

"O heiliger Martine ... "

it's a hilarious description of getting the parish feast going,
right down to the goose for dinner,
the pouring rain outside,
and how
'Saint Catherine is coming next,
so put the fiddles away already.'

"Get Posting! Do it in memory of Amos, at the very least!"

Really? I know we all have selective memories but I vividly recall the last of Amos posts. He deeply regretted the time he spent posting so much to the exclusion of time spent with family and priorities.
When time is short we all could do bargaining such as wishing 30,000+ hours back to use differently, but to attribute it to "do it to the memory of...", it should at least be a true memory.
There is nothing wrong with taking a word from the wise and managing time more wisely.
Besides, the posts of the past have virtually disappeared for reasons I do not fully understand.

$1,700 for a TASER® 7 CQ Home Defense Shooting Stun Gun w/ Laser Sight isn't a poor person's toy. Then you have to buy two-packs of air propellant AND more Taser reloads after each use.

For that kinda money I can buy a couple of GOOD pistols* and ammunition -- or put a a down payment on a BiPAP ST, such as was provided by the VA. Moreover, they're not all that expensive, and a factory refurb would work fine. But I take what I'm given.


*Should I want to, which I don't as I have enough firearms and ammunition for a LONG hunting trip or a small war. If I wanted to spend that sort of cash I'd buy something else entirely, like a surprise for my wife (who, BTW, inherited a .22 rifle, a 7.65mm FN 10/22, a 1917 .45 Colt Autorim Revolver, a .22 revolver, and a .22 air rifle from her father).

I have a personal theory about PTSD I don't talk about because I could be wrong. Those with a conscience-empathy suffer from PTSD and those without a conscience/empathy, glory in not having variable degrees of ptsd. The more sociopathology the less prone people are to have recurrent PTSD.
There it is, but like I say I could be wrong.
A second Capitol policeman who fought on Jan. 6th has committed suicide this month. Perhaps other factors are more important.

Ane Prayer for the Pesty lance

by Robert Henryson
O eterne god, of power infinyt,
To quhois hie knawledge na thing is of obscure
That is, or was, or evir salbe, perfyt,
in to thy sicht, quhill that this warld indure;
Haif mercy of us, Indigent and peure;
Thow dois na wrang to puneiss our offens:
O Lord, that is to mankynd haill succure,
Preserve us fra this perrelus pestilens.

We the beseik, o Lord of lordis all,

We ask remeid of the in generall,
That is of help and comfort desolait;
bot thow with rewth our hairtis recreat,
We ar bot deid but only thy clemens:
We the exhort, on kneis law prostrait,
Preserf us fra this perrellus pestilens.

We ar richt glaid thow puneiss our trespass
be ony kind of uthir tribulatioun,
Wer it thy will, o lord of hevin, allaiss,
that we sowld thus be haistely put doun,
and dye as beistis without confessioun,
That nane dar mak with uthir residence.
O blissit Jesu, that woir the thorny croun,
Preserve us frome this perrelus pestilens.

Use derth, o lord, or seiknes, and hungir soir,
and slaik thy plaig that is so penetryve.
Thy pepill ar perreist: quha ma remeid thairfoir,
bot thow, o lord, That for thame Lost thy lyve?
Suppoiss our syn be to the pungityve,
Oure deid ma nathing our synnys recompens.
Haif mercy, lord, we ma not with the stryve:
preserve us etc.

Haif mercy, lord, haif mercy, hevynis king!
Haif mercy of thy pepill penetent;
Haif mercy of our petouss punissing;
retreit the sentence of thy Just Jugement
Aganis us synnaris, that servis to be schent:
Without mercy, we ma mak no defens.
Thow that, but rewth, upoun the rude was rent,
preserve us frome this perrellus pestilens.

Remmember, Lord, how deir thow hes us bocht,
That for us synnaris sched thy pretius blude,
Now to redeme that thow hes maid of nocht,
That is of vertew barrane and denude;
Haif rewth, Lord, of thyne awin symilitude;
Puneiss with pety and nocht with violens.
We knaw it is for our Ingratitude
That we ar puneist with this pestilens.

Thow grant us grace for till amend our miss,
And till evaid this crewall suddane deid;
We knaw our syn is all the cause of thiss,
for oppin syn thair is set no remeid.
The Justice of god mon puneiss than bot dreid,
for by the law he will with non dispens:
quhair Justice laikis thair is Eternall feid,
of god that sowld preserf fra pestilens.

Bot wald the heiddismen that sowld keip the law

Thair wald na deid the peple than owrthraw:
bot thay ar gevin so planely till oppressioun,
That god will not heir thair intercessioun;

There has been skepticism expressed about the Idaho Legion's place and activities in defending Earth from the Minions Of The Galactic Overlord (MOTGO). Here is photographic proof taken from the International Space Station (Legion Forward Observer Post "India Sierra Sierra") of a bolt shot from a MOTGO "Conqueror" Class intergalactic dreadnought at a city on Earth. You can see other Earth cities burning and destroyed.

This is never reported in the main stream (or even obscure trickle) media to prevent global panic.

This is an oldie-and-goodie, so here goes:

HOW TO PLAY AND SING THE BLUES
1. Most Blues begin with: "Woke up this morning..."
2. "I got a good woman" is a bad way to begin the Blues unless you stick something nasty in the next line like "I got a good woman with the meanest face in town."
3. The Blues is simple. After you get the first line right, repeat it. Then find something that rhymes, sort of: "Got a good woman with the meanest face in town. Yes, I got a good woman with the meanest face in town. Got teeth like Margaret Thatcher, and she weigh 500 pound."
4. The Blues is not about choice. You stuck in a ditch, you stuck in a ditch. There ain't no way out.
5. Blues cars: Chevys, Fords, Cadillacs and broken-down trucks. Blues don't travel in Volvos, BMWs, or SUVs. Most Blues transportation is a
Greyhound bus or a southbound train. Jet aircraft and state-sponsored motor pools ain't even in the running. Walkin' plays a major part in
the blues lifestyle. So does fixin' to die.
6. Teenagers can't sing the Blues. They ain't fixin' to die yet. Adults sing the Blues. In Blues, "adulthood" means being old enough to get the electric chair if you shoot a man in Memphis.
7. Blues can take place in New York City but not in Hawaii or anyplace in Canada. Hard times in Minneapolis or Seattle is probably just clinical depression. Chicago, St. Louis, and Kansas City are still great places to have the Blues. You cannot have the blues anyplace that don't get rain.
8. A man with male pattern baldness ain't the Blues. A woman with male pattern baldness is. Breaking your leg 'cause you were skiing is not the blues. Breaking your leg 'cause a alligator be chomping on it is.
9. You can't have no Blues in a office or a shopping mall. The lighting is wrong. Go out to the parking lot or sit by the dumpster.
10. Good places for the Blues:
a. highway
b. jailhouse
c. empty bed
d. bottom of a whiskey glass
Bad places for the Blues:
a. Nordstrom's
b. gallery openings
c. Ivy League colleges
d. golf courses
11. No one will believe it's the Blues if you wear a suit, 'less you happen to be an old ethnic person, and you slept in it.
12. Do you have the right to sing the Blues?
Yes, if:
a. you older than dirt
b. you blind
c. you shot a man in Memphis
d. you can't be satisfied
No, if:
a. you have all your teeth
b. you were once blind but now can see
c. the man in Memphis lived
d. you have a 401K or trust fund
13. Blues is not a matter of color. It's a matter of bad luck. Tiger Woods cannot sing the blues. Sonny Liston could. Ugly white people also got a leg up on the blues.
14. If you ask for water and your darlin' give you gasoline, it's the Blues. Other acceptable Blues beverages are:
a. cheap wine
b. whiskey or bourbon
c. muddy water
d. nasty black coffee
The following are NOT Blues beverages:
a. Perrier
b. Chardonnay
c. Snapple
d. Slim Fast
15. If death occurs in a cheap motel or a shotgun shack, it's a Blues death. Stabbed in the back by a jealous lover is another Blues way to die. So are the electric chair, substance abuse and dying lonely on a broken-down cot. You can't have a Blues death if you die during a tennis match or while getting liposuction.
16. Some Blues names for women:
a. Sadie
b. Big Mama
c. Bessie
d. Fat River Dumpling
17. Some Blues names for men:
a. Joe
b. Willie
c. Little Willie
d. Big Willie
18. Persons with names like Amber, Jennifer, Tiffany, Debbie, and Heather can't sing the Blues no matter how many men they shoot in Memphis.
19. Make your own Blues name Starter Kit:
a. name of physical infirmity (Blind, Cripple, Lame, etc.)
b. first name (see above) plus name of fruit (Lemon, Lime, etc..)
c. last name of President (Jefferson, Johnson, Fillmore, etc.)
Examples: Blind Lime Jefferson, Jackleg Lemon Johnson.

To wake up in a jail cell?

I drank your gin

And woke up in a jail cell.

Then a guy started calling you names,
Names that brought you shame.
He said you were worse than Carrie Nation,
With a manure fork I sent him to perdition.

I shouldn't have done it,
But his words, they bit
And I woke up in this jail cell.

Tomorrow morn, at half-past eight
With a rope and drop I'll leave this jail cell.

I do not see the jailed insurrectionists as political prisoners...
I do not find America irredeemable and condemned to be forever ignorant and militantly bigoted just because conservatives went off the rails for Trump.
A 'I alone can fix it!' guy is bound to come along again. We are more resiliant to mistakes time and again. We are starting to tone zealotry down. When we will see 'cancel culture' as bad as 'Trumpism' we will find a sensible balance. I see this miniscule forum an early example of larger changes to come. People do not want to live always by hatefullness and toxic invectives. The pendulum will eventually drop to the middle.

Mom, the radon test went bad. Seems like the test kit was outdated. So the local public health people sent me two and I've hung them up in two places here in the basement. The results of the first said that lab test "demonstrated the possibility of excess radon."

But then, you can pursue health here.

Radon.


Radon gas is a known cause of lung cancer. Many areas with karst bedrock are composed of limestone. Phosphate minerals that occur naturally in limestone contain small amounts of uranium. ... As a result of the uranium degrading into lead, small amounts of radon are produced as a byproduct.


Gotta love it. Much of Central and East Texas and the coast is perched on a slab of limestone.

When she was 7 my wife helped her folks clear the lot upon which their house was built in Silver Spring, Maryland. She got a BAD case of poison ivy, so much so that she couldn't even wear shoes. Her uncle, a doctor, got her into Georgetown University Medical Center in DC. She was given several doses of whole-body x-rays and the rash cleared up nicely. (X-rays were used to treat many things, including common acne.)

Fast forward 10 years and she's all set to go off to college (in Philadelphia, of course). She has a physical and ends up again in Georgetown Med Center with thyroid cancer. She is quite annoyed that her college education was delayed six weeks. Of course, she had a total thyroidectomy and parathyroidectomy with 72 lymph nodes removed and was (and is) scarred all over her throat and shoulders.

Fast forward to today. FIVE different cancers (not just locations, but types).

Don't fool with any radiation.

I'm in Silver Spring and still get poison ivy.
The biggest dose of radiation I got was from the 3 mile island initial radiation cloud release. It felt like my spine wanted to throw up.
The biggest dose my sister got was in an Army experiment of drinking 2 oz. of radioactive iodine. At the time of her death she had no digestive organs from the esophagus to the rectum. She survived on ATP alone. The Army learned people should not drink radioactive iodine.

PS If you get solar storm warnings its best to stay inside since Xrays can exceed tolerable levels outside.

Instead of driving from Finland to Sicily you can simply drive to Butte Montana where there is always a room at the Finland Hotel. Then ask anyone there where to eat a 5 lbs. stromboli. Its free if you eat the whole thing in an hour.

'Butte' is a kick 'ass' fun loving town compared to the actual Finland where joy is just the shadow of the all too cold dim damp depression from 10 months of winter.

If you need to eat like a true omnivorious cowboy you will have to head down to Denver and go to the Buckhorn Exchange. Buffalo Bill and Teddy Roosevelt have eaten there so rest assured, its authentic.

Buffalo Bill ate Teddy Roosevelt in Denver???

The distillery in Butte turns out some GREAT booze! Pricey, but you get what you pay for. Try "Neversweat" or "Speculator."

Vegas is holding a sweepstakes of who will be the first to reach 100,000 casualties first; people executed by the Taliban, Hatian earthquake victims or Trump antivaxers. The 100 day clock is ticking.

I casually object to the casual treatment of casualties.
