Nobody told me

Nobody told me there'd be days like these
Strange days indeed
strange days indeed



enough already


Do you remember John Lennon’s song (recorded in 1980 but released posthumously by Yoko)?

These days since the election was called for President-Elect Joe Biden have been strange days indeed. It was not surprising that the reality TV president would not accept losing. But the firings within his administration and lack of other GOP leaders (lackeys) accepting the outcome is disturbing and becoming scary.

Rudy Giulaini has been busy generating scary ideas and looks. He must dream about conspiracies because he comes up with weird ones. During this sweaty press conference he apparently got so heated up that his hair coloring started to run. Rudy gave a bizarre explanation of their case by comparing it to the movie “My Cousin Vinny”. Maybe Rudy is looking to break into the comedy movie scene.

I recommend stepping away from these disturbing administration scary clowns. I enjoy science so I go over to NASA.gov for a break. Have you heard of STEVE? Steve is a rare, mysterious, glowing purple arc in the night sky. I didn't know anything about STEVE before I stumbled on a NASA story. Here’s a link.

Friggatriskaidekaphob

Friggatriskaidekaphobia comes from Frigg, the Norse goddess of wisdom after whom Friday is named, and the Greek words triskaideka, meaning 13, and phobia, meaning fear.

People that take the time to understand this long word probably don’t let its related phobia bother them much. I find the superstitions shared within cultures interesting.

Oh, I thought posting about this late in the day on a Friday the 13th would be safe for those readers suffering from friggatriskaidekaphobia and who may have forgotten to look at the calendar today.

One bizarre item I just heard about is this Goop Holiday Gift guide. In this guide (for people who have lots of cash to blow) you’ll discover a great gift for a mouse/rat family. What I’m suggesting is the glowing Bread Lamp. Most upsetting for me is that I could easily make these for less than the $210.00 price tag. In fact if anyone out there would agree to buy 4 for $200, please contact me. Here’s the link to a very expensive odd gift -

On the road to civility

Civility comes from the word civis, which in Latin means "citizen".

The last few days of post-election counting and dishonest White House statements reminded me of the Black Knight scene in the “Holy Grail” movie.




King Arthur: Look you stupid bastard, you’ve got no arms left.
Black knight: Yes I have.
King Arthur: Look!
Black knight: Just a flesh wound.

Trump doesn’t need to lose his limbs, just concede and keep quiet.

Taken from email sent today by Joe Biden:
In the face of unprecedented obstacles, a record number of Americans voted. Proving once again, that democracy beats deep in the heart of America.
With the campaign over, it’s time to put the anger and the harsh rhetoric behind us and come together as a nation.
It’s time for America to unite. And to heal.
