Garry Moore on a Stratocaster Ibanez? BLASPHEMY!! :)

Timmons makes it sound great, though. As usual.

ETA: Miller ain’t no slouch, either. Damn.

BTW Dumbass Trump, we got Osama in Obama’s first term after he was the world’s most wanted man for Bush’s entire presidency and you have some of the same people that were part of his team like Bolton but yeah you know so much better than Admiral McRaven. Fuck you douchebag.

I knew Trump would be horrible. But it still shocks me how horrible.

After he’s gone, we’ll be left with the people who supported him. Even after all the horribleness. They will forever wear that albatross around their neck.

You know? The thing that scares me is they may finally someone worse. I thought Bush was the worst the GOP could offer. He wasn’t just like Trump may be replaced by someone even worse.

Let us not forget that many Evangelical Trumpers think he’s bringing the End Times.

Time for a bit of a rant. What gets me about these people is that they don’t care about how bad it gets, because they believe they have an out. They believe Jesus is going to come back for them in the Rapture before the shit hits the fan. And then they’ll watch us from heaven while we get tortured for 3.5 or 7 years (depending on how you read the chicken entrails that are the apocalyptic works in the Bible) before Jesus comes back for realsies and lays the smack down on us.

The fact that we have so many of these crazies in the highest levels of government should alarm everyone but we don’t even have a discussion about it. *sigh*

I was fortunate to have seen Moore in Thin Lizzy at the time he was filling in on their American tour in ‘77 for Brian Robertson. The speedy double leads were coming at us fast and hard with Moore and Scott Gorham. And Phil Lynott was a rock star, just not enough people knew it.

Moore did a whole album of Hendrix material Blues For Jimi that is pretty good and shows he is a master.

A taste of him doing Jimi.

And Trump knows that. It is why he still has a burr up his ass over the WHC Dinner, Obama, all the people in the press that laughed at him.

Also probably why he downplays Obama catching up and taking out Bin Laden. How could he be making fun of Trump (goofing off) and still be responsible for Bin Laden.

I loved Phil. I got to meet him on the Chinatown tour and tagged along on a few dates.

He told a story about how he was on a talk show with Sean Connery and Rodney Dangerfield (for some reason he kept calling him Roger Dangerfield), and none of the three of them could understand what the other two were saying. The idea was funny enough, but to hear him tell it was beyond hilarious.

I’ve still got a signed copy of his book of poems, and a single of ‘Jingle Bells’ that he did in a one-off band called The Greedies with Scott Gorham and Cook and Jones from the Sex Pistols.

Going to have to disagree. Not all of us can be Ben Franklin and write everyone we know at all hours of the day.

Telephones, Skype were also mentioned in there. And if you’re keeping contact on Facebook, you’re writing (unless it uses some sort of text-to-speech transcribing system).

It is no more work to write an E-mail than it is a Facebook post.

Email doesn’t have real time chat which is very helpful. We had no idea how to contact one of my cousins when I heard her father died, I found her on FB and we’ve gotten to each other through that platform. Even met up for coffee when I was in her neck of the woods and we exchanged stories about our grandmothers and aunts/uncles. Would never have been able to do that without Facebook. Same thing with my dad’s cousins who helped me so much learn more about my dads father’s family. You don’t like FB and that’s fine but it’s not useless as a platform.

And all because I tagged you! I’m so sorry! LOL! It won’t happen again. FB does make things harder and harder, and yes, I’d get rid of it, too, but I’ve built relationships with a lot of people over the years that I can’t let go.

It’s more than that. It’s hard to email every single person.

I’m in a few secret communities on FB that helped me through deaths, my daughter, my divorce, etc. I wouldn’t have gotten that with just email. I wouldn’t have ever met many of these incredible people without it. It allowed me to know that an online friend and her son needed help when she was sent home on hospice to die.

Personally I find social media incredible in that it in a lot of ways brings us closer. I believe Ski has talked about getting replies on Twitter from musicians and or skiers he likes. That’s really cool imo. When I was a kid not even that long ago, people in the spotlight felt more distant. It’s not like that now. And as I’ve said helps so much with genealogical stuff. I’ve met cousins from three different countries who I would have never met otherwise without modern social media platforms. It’s unfortunate that it’s used for negative reasons but we didn’t stop phone calls as people used it for threats nor did we film after the Nazis used it as a propaganda outlet. Regulate absolutely.

I suppose it goes to the way some approach the Internet versus other people.

It’s more than that. It’s hard to email every single person.

BCC: line of an E-mail. Put in one, two, one hundred E-mail addresses. If you want all of them to know what you’re writing, the To: or CC: lines will work for that.

With FB, one can stay in touch with numerous people and see what is going on in their lives and it’s easy to keep others posted on you and your life.

As are all those other methods I mentioned.

I’m in a few secret communities on FB that helped me through deaths, my daughter, my divorce, etc. I wouldn’t have gotten that with just email. I wouldn’t have ever met many of these incredible people without it. It allowed me to know that an online friend and her son needed help when she was sent home on hospice to die. I needed to meet her in person and I had the skills to take care of her and actually do something for her. That never would have happened without FB.

I am also on “secret” platforms (and not so secret ones) that have helped me with things (including the recent death of my sister-in-law), none of which are Facebook.

I received support here when my sister-in-law was dying, and with my step-father in the hospital now. (He went back to the hospital last night.)

I will certainly grant that Facebook is the eight hundred pound gorilla as far as connecting people goes … you can seek information from a whole lot of people very quickly there. But the idea that something could “never happen without Facebook” seems to be a bit much.

I think that is where the wheels fall off. And that would be making money off the people that are members by using it for commercial ends.

As a social idea Facebook is fine. But Zuckerberg couldn’t stop there, though he/they probably never intended it to be any other way.

They saw it as a huge human database to be used, they just sold it as “social” when it really is “commercial” and uses the social aspect to collect the data.

Would they ever have been able to sign up all those people if right up front they said: You can keep in contact with other users, but all of your data will be recorded, saved, used to sell to commercial, news, education and political entities?

Even though that is all in that huge “I accept the terms” text that no one reads.

GOP’s Mississippi Senate candidate is in real trouble

Her handlers are telling her just to shut it for a another two weeks. Meanwhile, the NRSC is now being forced to spend $700,000 for an ad buy in freaking Mississippi. Cindy has zero accomplishments, so the ads will focus on attacking her Democratic opponent. (I can guarantee they will be very ugly. …
Besides the ad buy, Trump is holding not one, but two separate rallies right before the special election on Tuesday, November 27.

Why is the GOP so worried? Cuz this:

Espy remains the underdog in the conservative state, but Republicans with access to private polling say Hyde-Smith’s lead has narrowed significantly in recent days.

Dem strategists say Mike Espy only needs roughly 30% of the white vote, and the candidate is going hard after the demographic that strongly rejected Trump this past election—suburban women. His campaign, Rise Above, has been a very positive contrast over Cindy Hyde-Smith’s.

“It turned the whole thing upside down … I knew who I was going to vote for before this. Now I don’t,” said a man named William, a white Republican and self-described “Trumpster” who voted for Hyde-Smith two weeks ago. He declined to provide his last name because he didn’t want to publicly disclose he was considering voting for a Democrat. “Mike Espy is a good guy. Nothing wrong with him.”

Fair enough but my point is any type of communication is going to have its pitfalls and frankly with respect to AM, I think he doesn’t understand how FB’s format helps people like myself who definitely are more shy in phone calls or more conventional matters of communication. I’m not saying FB shouldn’t be regulated. I’m saying the poo-pooing it gets really old especially from someone who has by their own admission not had an account. By all means regulate the hell out of it, I don’t mind that as an idea but to act like it does no positive social good is being short sighted IMO.

My grandmother was born and raised in Kansas. She was French-Canadian.

I participate in politics on Twitter, along with skiing and music and such. I put my own name on it. It’s honest.

I’m a little reticent about it but then again I do use my own name on FB to contribute to discussions on sports, genealogy, and on the pages of the policy stuff I get from the SPLC. But I don’t feel unsecure. I think TBH we’re seeing a little bit of a generation gap on this in a way. I’ve had a FB account for 95% of FB’s existence and it’s never caused me any worry. I do think it should be regulated and there are fair criticisms but that’s life. I think the good outweighs the bad.

Our Thanksgiving is typically: turkey, green bean cassarole with onion strings, mashed potatoes, sweet potatoes, rolls, stuffing, and cranberry sauce with apple and pumpkin pie for dessert. We don’t do Mac and Cheese which is a shame because I love homemade mac and cheese.

With the exception of the green bean casserole, that’s pretty much a typical Thanksgiving meal as far back as I remember. About the only variation is when my grandmother would make her version of broccoli casserole or one of the in-laws brought dessert. And yeah, homemade mac and cheese is good stuff, provided it’s the real deal and not the “experiments” I’ve been seeing on twitter and facebook. Goldfish crackers? Green beans? Can we just not “white folk” for one day, please?

We traditionally had these sides: stuffing, mashed potatoes, cranberry sauce, broccoli casserole or green bean casserole, sweet potatoes of some sort, and assorted olives and pickles.

Don’t you have to use your real name and address to create a Facebook account?

I’m not talking about screen names and all that once you have the account.

How hard is it for a computer to link your “private” sign-up with all of your data?

There is the what you see online as far as privacy settings and the confidence it gives you.

But in the background and what we have learned about Facebook, do you trust them to not be able to link who you really are with all your data and all your communications and then figure in who all you communicate with is really too?

I bet Facebook could print out a report that would send shivers down most people with what they know.

And don’t forget, they have admitted they connect to your phone and record who all you communicate with and then use that to further build your life record.

And if they can do that, they can take those names and phone numbers go back in to their database and link through your name all those others and build database on all kinds of things.

What other ways do they reach out into other databases and build and build the data. How about your school records, medical records, police records, voter registrations, other social networks, etc.? Maybe they don’t do that now, but they could if asked by a court order.

I am not trying to sound like a conspiracy nut or trash people that use Facebook. I find it all fascinating because I don’t use “observer” in my name for no reason.

I love observing the human experience. And Facebook is a powerful tool that impacts that experience.

I am also a freedom lover. And I worry some of this stuff takes away from that freedom when they are working unknown in the background as they proved with the 2016 election.

And then there is the what we don’t know thing that Zuckerberg is just fine not telling anyone about.

Traditional Thanksgiving when my grandmother was doing it: Turkey and homemade gravy, mashed potatoes, potato stuffing, homemade bread stuffing, some sort of green vegetable (peas or green beans, but not that green bean casserole crap), celery with peanut butter, olives, jellied cranberry sauce, maybe some dinner rolls, but not sure about that. Dessert was always pumpkin pie. When my grandpa became diabetic, my mom figured out how to make a sugar-free pumpkin pie. When my dad stopped eating fat, we figured out how to just put pumpkin pie filling made with fat-free condensed milk and egg substitute into individual baking dishes (frankly, that’s my favorite because I prefer the filling more than the crust).

And then I realized that they were all FB friends of my wife, and friends of their friends. I had to unfriend her in self defense.

There is the connection then. The problem with digital data is how easy it is to connect it all together so quickly and efficiently.

Just think of Facebook, Twitter, Google, ATT, Verizon, Comcast, Charter and others all working together to build the Big Database we know nothing about? If those entities join hands and share with the government that is a lot of power.

The way they act, I guess I don’t trust them. And even without Facebook, I too would still fall into all those connections. We all do.

And if you want to go sci-fi/dystopian movie, they could create human bots running around doing what we do based on all that knowledge.

Say skiguy is standing at the bar in Utah at a ski resort he never skied and he hears some “guy” at a table behind him talking about teleskiing, being from Colorado and he likes Umphrey’s McGee and posts at a political site called Little Green Footballs.

Robert Mueller was appointed by the Deputy AG, who was confirmed by the Senate after you nominated him, you mutant doorknob. Special Counsels have never been subject to Senate confirmation, though I’m sure Lumpy forgot to tell you that while he was blowing you on live TV.

Meanwhile, you are putting any actions by the DOJ in jeopardy because your hired goon is likely signing off on shit that he has no legal authority to even be touching. And the Senate GOP are letting him and you get away with that because they’ve totally abdicated their jobs. Say, perhaps that’s the reason why Senate confirmation is not required for Special Counsels…

I never did understand this. I was hoping that my daughter would be born early, around Christmas, but she waited two weeks more before she was forced out. Just because Christmas just happened, I refuse to skimp on her birthday. It’s a totally different celebration.

I’m sure of that. And I’m sorry if I sound dismissive but those communities really aren’t representative of our country. Some stories about them are fine but where the hell were the stories about counties that Clinton won and actually in fact outperformed Obama. Not to take anything away from Obama’s accomplishments but the media ignored that there were quite a bit of places where she in fact did better than he did.

The big thing is the shift in focus, from the early day “These are the communities Dems need to win back!” to the current “These are the communities that still cling to Trump despite his being a total fuck-up.” By this time next year, it will be “These are the communities that are totally going to give Trump a second term!”

There is the connection then. The problem with digital data is how easy it is to connect it all together so quickly and efficiently.

Just think of Facebook, Twitter, Google, ATT, Verizon, Comcast, Charter and others all working together to build the Big Database we know nothing about? If those entities join hands and share with the government that is a lot of power.

The way they act, I guess I don’t trust them. And even without Facebook, I too would still fall into all those connections. We all do.

And if you want to go sci-fi/dystopian movie, they could create human bots running around doing what we do based on all that knowledge.

Say skiguy is standing at the bar in Utah at a ski resort he never skied and he hears some “guy” at a table behind him talking about teleskiing, being from Colorado and he likes Umphrey’s McGee and posts at a political site called Little Green Footballs.

And he just bought a car you get to pay for.

Sounds like the only way to handle that possibility is to remain off the grid completely…no job with W2s or 1099s, no utilities, nothing. I’m not willing to live like that.

Right and i don’t delude myself about the white working class either. I know that men like my grandfather worked their asses off for their families but I don’t delude myself about the real reasons those groups have become solidly Republican and it’s really frustrating seeing a Senator from fucking Vermont lecture Democrats about it as if he has any clue what the white working class really thinks. Places like WV, rust belt PA, and others have gone Republican because they don’t like social liberalism and they’re willing to grudgingly accept right wing bs on the economy over social liberalism. Do I wish more working class people voted for Dems?

Those are fair points. Anyhow, you don’t have to use the FB mobile. And FWIW it does rub me the wrong way that anyone I’ve ever corresponded with shows up as a potential contact person but is what it is. I just think FB just is. It’s like most things we encounter.

“We are not the ones to blame. We are not in charge of managing the forest,” another evacuee, Ryan Belcher, told The Guardian, adding, “I hope he sees how this community has come together… People are still here helping us. It’s an amazing thing and I hope he sees that.”

I don’t know why the narrative ‘leftists think Trumpers are dumb that’s why he’s going to win in 2020’ bugs me. It’s just plain dumb.

‘I’m voting because people insulted me.’

What’s funny is it’s a self own.

Conservatives are a bunch of snowflakes who think they’re a bunch of tough guys but a lot of them are a bunch of overly sensitive assholes who can’t think critically to save their life.

Those are fair points. Anyhow, you don’t have to use the FB mobile. And FWIW it does rub me the wrong way that anyone I’ve ever corresponded with shows up as a potential contact person but is what it is. I just think FB just is. It’s like most things we encounter. Positive, negatives, neutrals, etc. I think Ski gets frustrated because AM refuses to see any of the positive benefits that people like him and I have gotten from modern social media. I guess it’s a touchy subject for me because it’s due to modern social media and stuff that I have my best friend.

Well, ‘mouse is mouse and I think he knows those benefits, he just thinks they can be done in other ways and he works with what he has and wants to remind there are other ways.

I must emphasize that xenophobia too because so much of the crap directed at Obama was also because of his father being from Kenya and his international upbringing.

The racing blog I walked through earlier was pretty blase about this injury - inexpert but sport-savvy opinion was that half the indycar field has had this injury during their careers. Six months of not-so-fun spinal reconstruction and rehab, then back in the car.

Open-cockpit racing at this level is primarily dangerous due to the head being exposed. If you don’t take a direct plow/penetration of the helmet or an outright decapitation, the protective tub inside the chassis will probably keep the injuries down to broken bones from decel and compression.

re: #274 William Lewis

Mac and cheese. Recipie was from the Creamettes macaroni box. Basically cheddar, milk and a little powdered mustard melted together, mix in cooked macaroni and bake at 300 for about an 1/2 hour. Ate a lot of it while growing up - cheap and filling.

I make my own version so it is creamy. I try not to eat it too much because it is rather rich.

I start with cooking the macaroni but not fully cooked. Then putting that into a casserole dish that has been buttered on the bottom and sides. Put in some cheese that is either shredded or chucks and a dusting of flour. Not a lot, it just helps make it from being runny.

Then get a pan with milk and a little butter in it.

Get that to almost boiling and start mixing in some cut up pieces of American cheese since it melts well. Then I start mixing in cheddar that is finely shredded because it melts better when it is not chunks. You have to keep stirring to keep it flowing.

When all melted and like a thick sauce (it can be thickened with some corn starch to make sure it is creamy) pour it all over the pre-cooked macaroni, cheese and flour in the casserole dish.

Then bake all that for maybe 30 minutes. Creamy thick, cheesy and rich.

I don’t really have exact measurements. I wing it. You can get a feel for how much sauce to make and how much macaroni that will completely cover.

Ouch.

I saw that earlier today. It was one of those perfect incidents. She lost her brakes at full speed, tried to scrub speed against the guard rail and that caused her to start to spin when she hits the other car backwards, she gets launched off his wheel and that puts her into the air.

Those are formula 3 cars. They have about 250 horsepower in a 1200 lb car. Top speed about 165 mph.

That structure she hits is for photographers and the safety fence is open there for them and the flagging corner workers and that is exactly where she went off. Most races there is only slit at the bottom of the fence for photographers. It is Macau and the do things their own way.

Others were injured too. I think I saw a corner worker, a photographer and the driver she went over.

I’ve gone to a lot of races, and I’ve been right behind those fences on special access passes. To get those, you have to sign a waiver stating you know the dangers.
