MOTHER NATURE AS EYE CANDY

I really do go bonkers over photos like this one.  I see them often here but don’t often post them.  Have no idea why I don’t.  Maybe I should pay more attention to this stuff.  Sounds like a plan. Lots more at the link of course.

Is this awesome er what?

EYE CANDY, KATE UPTON

I’ve featured Kate Upton in the past. But she’s so pretty I thought another look would be pleasing to the eye.
I guess that’s why we call em Eye Candy.

I could NOT let this one slide…

A member of the BMEWS community posted this in another venue. Well, that member won’t post it here, but I will.

Other than I’m still crying over the story (a good story, wonder if it’s true?), it made me think: How often, when bad things happened to me, was He there? I just couldn’t see Him because I’m not innocent enough?

Something to think about…

Hmm, I now note we don’t have ‘Religion’, or ‘Christian’ category. So it’s posted under ‘Editorials’.

still not dead

Still not dead. Not posting much. Online a whole lot less.

Looking for work.

Still not smoking. Not even using an unlit cigar as a chew toy at this point.

Doing a little bit of bridge hunting; very happy to report that All Is Right With That World: A) not only are there Parker truss bridges in Somerset, the next county over; B) I’ve found yet another phoenix column bridge along the South Branch. Ok, this one is actually along the Raritan Water Power Canal, a strange bit of capitalist history in itself, and was put there for scenic effect after being a working bridge in two previous locations. But the Power Canal is only a couple hundred yards in from where the South Branch and the North Branch come together; C) (and the real cause of my happiness) truss bridges are still being built in Hunterdon and Somerset Counties. Ok, they aren’t the big massive works of the middle 20th century. And they aren’t the flyweight fairy bridges of the late 19th century. But they have a peculiar modern beauty all their own that I’m learning to love. And they’re all twin span pony trusses, which fit in perfectly with the other bridges in the area.

No big pictures today.


image

The Studdiford Drive “Camel Warren”. A twin span camelback half subdivided Warren pony bridge.  This is about 3 miles up the road from the lenticular bridge I posted on the other day, with 2 other interesting bridges in between them.



imageimage
At the eastern end of the Raritan Water Power Canal is this nice old bridge, now restored and open only for foot traffic. The sign calls it a “double intersection Pratt” which is another way of saying it’s a Whipple truss. Pretty darn rare, although once common for railroad bridges. Twin span, but a through truss not a pony. Same kind of bridge as the under bridge in that domestic terrorism post the week before.
This “last” bridge in my two part walkabout is about 4 miles east of the Studdiford Drive bridge, with “only” the phoenix column between them. Another 2 miles to the east are a few Parker railroad bridges and a possibly interesting foot bridge to nowhere. But hey; D) Parkers!!!! Woo hoo!!! It was Parkers that got me started on this whole summer of bridge learning.

And yeah, there’s a double Warren a few miles to the north of me in Belvedere. Same kind as the bridge down south in Washington’s Crossing. And if I visited that one, I’d have to stop at the other phoenix column bridge down in Stockton. Hoo boy, imagine that, 4 separate phoenix column bridges in a 20 mile radius from where I live. Plus cast iron Pratts, all sorts of old pinned trusses, riveted trusses, a modern camelback, a lenticular, a Fink in a warehouse somewhere, and some genuine Parkers. As a bridge spotter, I am spoiled for riches without ever using more than a gallon or two of gas. Sweet.

england gives and the vermin take. and take. and laugh at their benefactors.

RIOTER WHO LIVED IN A $4,684,897 HOME ON THE TAXPAYER

An Iraqi who came here for asylum and was handed a six-bedroom home. In return, he joined a gang that looted shops and raided a famous Michelin starred restaurant.  Photos at the link.  Miserable sub human scum. Take a look at those faces. Should any of them still be breathing?
The govts. no matter who in power, are a nest of vipers feathering their own nests. The left is in firm control of the things that contribute to the problems here.  With their multi-culture BS and their diversity and their kow towing to anything non white, it isn’t a surprise things are this way.  And they’ll continue because the sense of national survival is absent among those calling the shots on civil and human rights and all the crap that goes with it.

You think things are any different in the USA among that group?

And when it comes to the folks we all think of as crazies like the guy who shot those poor Sikhs in Wisconsin recently, why are ppl like him always gunning the wrong damn people?  Why oh why aren’t certain left wing groups being hit? Why isn’t some of the leadership being taken out?  Why isn’t that 5th column being brought to book?  Hasn’t happened one time that I can think of.
And that’s part of the problem.  With all the guns in America among so many diverse people, nobody has yet done a damn thing about taking out our mutual enemies.  Who btw track all right wing groups and I’m not referring to Federal agencies or any law enforcement people.  Although they do track as we know.  I’m referring to those bed wetting hand wringers who are foreign in organization but openly operate in the USA.  They are all still breathing. WHY?

LAST YEARS RIOTS AND SOME WHO TOOK PART

It has emerged that one of last year’s rioters, Nasir Muhsen, 18, was living in a $4million apartment, funded by British taxpayers.

By REBECCA CAMBER, CRIME REPORTER and EMILY ALLEN

He and his family were housed in one of London’s most fashionable areas after they fled Iraq to claim asylum in Britain but he claimed to be so poor that he joined the riots to steal money for food.

Yesterday Muhsen was locked up for six and a half years at Inner London Crown Court after racking up what a judge called a ‘handsome record for violence’ after coming to Britain.

Sneering with contempt for the judge and laughing as he swaggered to the cells, he joked: ‘Obviously I want more, I want to remain in prison.’
The Mail can now reveal that Muhsen and his family trashed their six-bedroom flat in a grand Victorian mansion block in Kensington after being housed there by the council.

To the fury of neighbours, who include a naval admiral, they enjoyed a 3,000 sq ft basement apartment just by Earls Court.

The property, which if rented on the private market could command around £6,000 a month, had been refurbished before their arrival last year.
But by the time the family were evicted last Christmas for not paying their heavily subsidised rent to the council, it was in such a bad state that builders had to spend ten days on repairs.
One neighbour said: ‘They were like animals. All the wardrobes were ripped out. It had been gutted.
‘The windows were broken, the doors were off. It looked like it had been party central.  People came and went all times of the night. They trashed it.’

Muhsen was living at the plush property with his mother and brothers at the time of the riots, yet his defence lawyer, Rupert Bowers, argued: ‘He had no income, the money he took was to buy food.’
Muhsen, who a month after the riots was jailed for another robbery, has convictions dating back to 2009.
He was given a youth rehabilitation order after being convicted of wounding and possession of an offensive weapon in 2010 and robbery in June 2011.  But like many of the gang members, he breached the order to join the riots, during which he was part of a group that ransacked an off-licence, battering the terrified shopkeeper over the head eight times with a bottle of champagne.

Yesterday Judge Usha Karu jailed Muhsen for six and a half years for conspiracy to commit violent disorder and robbery.
The court heard that Muhsen was part of a mob of more than 50 youths from rival gangs who teamed up for a night of ‘devastating’ disorder.
She told them: ‘It was a year ago today that you were involved in the mob criminality that so disturbed the law-abiding members of the public.’
Today, in stark contrast to the scenes of arson, looting and damage, London is hosting the Olympics, which demonstrates the excellence which can be achieved in sport and is an inspiration to all.
‘However, those involved in these events were intent on the opposite.’
In extraordinary scenes, many of the defendants, aged between 15 and 25, whooped with joy, shouting obscenities and laughing as the judge passed sentence.

Yesterday he laughed as he was sentenced to three years in jail. Having already served a year on remand, he will be eligible for release in only six months.

SEE IT ALL HERE. TAKE A GOOD LOOK AT THE VERMIN. SEE ANYTHING HUMAN HERE?

Meanwhile, a country that does care about a little thing called border control and self survival while not perfect itself, has just cracked down on their gypsy camps and destroyed camps all across the country and is deporting them in large numbers. That country is France!
I’ve only just read about it minutes ago. 


France smashes its gipsy camps, making hundreds homeless

By SARA MALM and PETER ALLEN
PUBLISHED: 16:00, 9 August 2012

France’s socialist government has begun smashing up Roma gipsy camps across the country and deporting the illegal immigrants living in them.
It comes days after Greek police rounded up 6,000 migrants in Athens at the weekend - detaining 1,600 for deportation.
Destruction of Roma gipsy camps and deportations began in Paris yesterday and will move to other major French cities, where camps have mushroomed in recent years.

how to deport scum without violating their human rights. it keeps getting dumber.

If ever a people and nation have been taken to the cleaners time and time again, and knowing all the time that they were, this nation and these people are it.
That old and much used expression, words fail, come to mind in sharing this bit of insanity. And there’s more then just this article, which is bad enough.
No more from me. Read this from the Daily Mail.

UK pays to refit foreign prisons: Taxpayers foot bill to revamp jails in Nigeria and Jamaica so criminals can be deported without breaching their human rights

UK jails house inmates from 156 countries, including 900 Jamaicans and 594 Nigerians

Government is spending £3million modernising foreign jails

By JAMES SLACK

British taxpayers are paying to make jails in Jamaica and Nigeria more comfortable in a desperate bid to persuade foreign criminals to serve their sentences at home.

Ministers have resorted to the tactic – designed to satisfy the human rights of inmates – after it emerged that the UK’s own prison system has turned into a ‘United Nations of crime’.

Research by the House of Commons library, seen by the Mail, reveals how our jails contain inmates from a staggering 156 countries – more than three out of every four member states of the UN.

Worryingly, the total number of foreign prisoners is rising – despite pledges by David Cameron to fix the mess.

By March this year, there were 11,127 behind bars, at an estimated cost to the UK public purse of more than £420million. This is up from 10,778 in 2011.

The group, which includes rapists, murderers and burglars, now makes up more than one in every eight convicts.

The figures were disclosed as the Prime Minister faced more criticism yesterday over his foreign aid commitments.

Mr Cameron was taking part in a radio phone-in when a pensioner called to tell him it was wrong that she was denied a cancer drug while billions were spent on overseas aid.

Meanwhile, it emerged that the dire need to create space in our packed jails has prompted ministers to take the extraordinary step of establishing a £3million annual pot to make it easier for convicts to serve their sentences back home.

Splashing money on prisons abroad is certain to prove controversial. But officials insist it will be cheaper in the long run than the annual £38,000 bill for keeping a single prisoner locked up here.

Currently, money is being spent in Jamaica to ‘assist Jamaican authorities in modernising their prison service and rehabilitation and reintegration activities’.

In Nigeria, one project supports the provision of ‘human rights training for prison officers’.

THE REST OF THIS STORY

“officials insist it will be cheaper in the long run than the annual £38,000 bill for keeping a single prisoner locked up here.”

Why has it not occurred to anyone that if they want to save money, a quick and very quiet deletion might be cheaper yet. Set up a lice removal service and bingo.  Problem solved. I guess tho they’d rather put up with this.

This island is filling up, it’s drowning in scum and to make matters worse, the courts and civil rights industry do not help matters. They add to the problem.

mild joke brings forth official school “inquiry” …. 3 cheers for dead speech?

In keeping with the long standing practise and tradition of awarding Moonbats to idiots,
I offer you the following.

bat
Award presented to whoever the unnamed person is, who insisted that the board governors hold an investigation.

There are some jokes that are so bad it makes you wonder why anyone bothered to tell it or why they thought it was funny.
Then there are gags that are not so much funny as they are amusing.
There are some that are called ‘groaners’ because they are so silly or so bad, they’re actually funny. 
But only in this politically correct age of speech dictatorship can a joke that really is only mildly funny bring on an official, “inquiry.”


RABBI JOKE INQUIRY

A teacher is being investigated after joking on Facebook that a rabbi who drowned in the sea during a ritual should have taken a shower instead.
The teacher, David Reeves, made the joke after the rabbi drowned off Aberystwyth, Wales.  He then apologized when called on the joke and the school governors have been asked to investigate.

Now I ask you.  Is that fuckin stooooopid er what?  Not the joke. That was kind of amusing, sad as the event undoubtedly is.  Investigate what for heaven sake?

He should never have apologized either.  Everybody these days are either crying in public or saying they are very sorry for things I’m sure they aren’t really sorry about at all.  But sometime I guess it’s a matter of saving one’s job.
What a world.

I have a joke for the readers here. I think it’s funny and there will be NO apologies.
The gag is set in a religious school because it’s against the rules to teach this sort of inflammatory subject in the public schools.

A Hebrew school teacher was discussing the Ten Commandments with her five and six year olds.

After explaining the commandment to “honor” thy Father and thy Mother, she asked, “Is there a commandment that teaches us how to treat our brothers and sisters?”

Without missing a beat one little boy (the oldest of a family) answered, “Thou shall not kill.”

Can’t resist. Here’s a final one.

Two beggars are sitting side by side on a street in Rome.

One has a cross in front of him; the other one the Star of David. Many people go by and look at both beggars, but only put money into the hat of the beggar sitting behind the cross.

A priest comes by, stops and watches throngs of people giving money to the beggar behind the cross, but none give to the beggar behind the Star of David.

Finally, the priest goes over to the beggar behind the Star of David and says, “My poor fellow, don’t you understand? This is a Catholic country; this city is the seat of Catholicism. People aren’t going to give you money if you sit there with a Star of David in front of you, especially when you’re sitting beside a beggar who has a cross. In fact, they would probably give to him just out of spite.”

The beggar behind the Star of David listened to the priest, turned to the other beggar with the cross and said: “Moe, look who’s trying to teach the Goldstein brothers about marketing.”

I think I’m being set up…

Sorry I haven’t been posting, but job search, Church, BSA, and VA treatments have really eaten into my time.

Here’s the lastest on the Boy Scouts:

The Good News: My BSA applications were all approved. (Troop Committee, three Merit Badges.)
The Bad News: My BSA applications were all approved. (Troop Committe, three Merit Badges.)

I still have this funny feeling that I’m being set-up. I’m the only current adult in the Troop leadership that was actually a Cub Scout, Webelo, Boy Scout, Explorer. That includes the current Scoutmaster, who’s only doing this as part of his two-year-mission. He’s got a year and some months left.

I may have posted this before, but now it’s official!

Posted under ‘Personal’ unless someon wants to creat a BSA tag.

Teaser

Another bridge post. All pictures linked to much bigger versions.

image

One of the more rare early truss bridges is the one called the lenticular truss. It looks like a lens, a discus, or a UFO. It is very strong design, combining the strengths of both the arch and the suspension bridge in one. It also has a tendency to bounce like the set of carriage springs it resembles, so the popularity of this kind of truss waned pretty quickly when it turned out that the rapidly moving public wanted bridges that did more than merely not collapse; they wanted them to SIT STILL while they were being crossed. Sorry Charlie.

Only about 40 of these bridges remain in the USA. Only about half of those are still in use for vehicular traffic. And most of the ones still in use turn out to have been made by the Berlin Iron Bridge Company of New Berlin Connecticut. How about that? Pretty darned good work record, considering most of these old girls are nearly 120 years old now. You can find them from New England down to Texas, with a good number across upstate New York and another bunch scattered across Pennsylvania. New Jersey has two, so OF COURSE one of those is near where I live, and in pretty darned amazing great shape, open to regular vehicular traffic, albeit rather weight limited traffic. And where else would it be, but on the South Branch, our local little river that seems to have more antique truss bridges across it per mile in it’s 10 mile length than any other river in the country.



imageimageimage



I have a ton more pictures naturally. This is the Elm Street Bridge in Neshanic Station NJ, just over the county line into Somerset County, and is about 2 miles downstream on the South Branch of the Raritan River from the Higgensville Rd bridges in Three Bridges NJ, which are in turn about 1 mile downstream from the Rockafellows Mills bridge I last posted about.

Those nuts on those nice new shiny stainless steel pins - the Elm Street bridge is well taken care of, and is yet another example of the “rare” pin connected truss (rare everywhere but Hunterdon and Somerset Counties NJ) - are about the size of the palm of your hand. This bridge is two spans across, each span is about 140 feet.

Hidden Value

Going to take a run up-county to see some real estate. A whole condo complex we didn’t even know existed, and it seems like a third of them are for sale. Might be able to SCORE something nice, for not too much extra commute. Double the size home for less total money ought to be worth another 20 minute drive perhaps??

Economic Recovery? What’s that?? Don’t see one around here too much. For gosh sakes, the McDonald’s inside the local Walmart closed it’s doors. And the local liquor store is going out of business. When the hell do either one of those ever happen??

I swear, half of damned Warren County NJ is for sale, half of them in shorts or foreclosures. Hunterdon isn’t far behind either. All of them are overtaxed, since the counties reassessed everyone during the boom. Want lower rates? Get on line; the reassessment appointment list is probably 5 years long.

Still At It

Still working on my addictions.

Still not smoking. Has it only been 3 weeks? Feels like half a year.

Still cutting down on the internet. Instead of 6-9 hours a day I’m on for about an hour each morning and half an hour or a tiny bit more in the evening. That doesn’t leave me much time for blogging, or for visiting my 50 favorite daily sites. Still, it leaves me with much more time to have a real life, like in getting up in the morning and getting in some exercise.

And today was quite a bit cooler and dryer, so now the garage is all swept out and semi-organized.

Progress. It comes in several small cans every day. And one large won’t.

score one for better race relations?  don’t believe so.

I don’t know where everybody’s head is at on this issue.  Beautiful young (17) white girl and one of those fellows with thick lips and a somewhat broad nose.
But hey. Her choice. Right?  Thing about this case is, if it’s wrong to beat up on someone, and in this case mom and dad whupped their daughter who they found minus her cloths at home with darkie.  So they were outraged, they were PO’d big time, mommy and daddy not kindly disposed to daughter or her current primate.  Whoops. Playmate.

De judge here makes his little speech as tho that will solve anything except liberals taking comfort and joy in the arrest and jailing of the parents.  Not saying daddy should have beat up his daughter.  But sometimes ppl become so enraged they lose control of themselves. And he and mom sure did.

What gets to me are the bed wetting libtard ass-wipes making a big deal out of what is described as a race attack.  Maybe but more like plain anger and a refusal to accept his daughter crossing the race divide.  And there is one no matter how much segregation and diversity and multi-kulture is forced on people. 

Reading the comments folks are making, more about the race issue then the beating up of the girl by dad.  To be sure people are highly critical of that, but they seem more concerned that the father was so upset about his daughter’s choice of a primate for a playmate.

So mom and dad are off to jail as much for using racial slurs as for the attacks on the guy and the daughter.

Here’s where I have a problem.

As I write this there are over 300 comments on the story and that number will grow by the time you see this here.  So far, no one, nobody, not one person has mentioned the attack on a white girl by four black muslims , who beat the hell out of her, sent her to a hospital, not one of those vermin served a day in detention of any kind.
Nada, Zero. Zip. Nothing. 
Every time something like this present case occurs and the perps are white, I think back to those black girls who beat the system after they beat their white victim.  They weren’t even called on the race carpet after shouting, kill the white bitch.  And the Negro that dad went after suffered no damage as did that white girl set upon some months ago. 

The girls who got off as you regulars here at bmews will recall, had a great reason for what they did. They had been drinking.  Remember?  Sure ya do. And the judge decided they weren’t really responsible cos they were not used to the demon rum. 

Fast forward to now and a court decides the parents must be jailed in the interest of justice and especially as they used racial epithets.  THAT I suggest to you reader, was the real reason for their conviction plus they were clearly the wrong color to be allowed to get away with such an outrage against society and western civilization.

What is as bad are the comments being made by the bed wetting hand wringers all trying to outdo one another with words of condemnation for the parents and their outrage over the idea that a man could react so violently because his daughter fancied a non white.  I read in their comments the work of the left over generations. 

Prosecuting and jailing the parents and making an issue about race while ignoring the other case I brought up again, sure as hell does nothing to further or cement better race relations.  In fact, it does the reverse.

I am not posting the whole story here. For that, see the link.

· David and Frances Champion have been jailed for assaulting their daughter, 17, and her boyfriend Aflonce Ncube in a racist attack
· The Judge described their actions as ‘vile’ and ‘disgraceful’
· Mr Champion told Jane that she had brought ‘shame to the family’ while he beat her
· The Champions tried to find Mr Ncube as he hid in the restaurant where he worked while they screamed racial abuse

the night watchman

I do not recall ever seeing this before.

H/T Doc Jeff yet again. 


NIGHT WATCHMAN

Once upon a time the government had a vast scrap yard in the middle of a desert.

Congress said, “Someone may steal from it at night.”

So they created a night watchman position and hired a person for the job.

Then Congress said, “How does the watchman do his job without instruction?”

So they created a planning department and hired two people, one person to write the instructions, and one person to do time studies.

Then Congress said, “How will we know the night watchman is doing the tasks correctly?”

So they created a Quality Control department and hired two people. One was to do the studies and one was to write the reports.

Then Congress said, “How are these people going to get paid?”

So they created two positions: a time keeper and a payroll officer then hired two people.

Then Congress said, “Who will be accountable for all of these people?”

So they created an administrative section and hired three people, an Administrative Officer, Assistant Administrative Officer, and a Legal Secretary.

Then Congress said, “We have had this command in operation for one year and we are $918,000 over budget, we must cut back.”

So they laid-off the night watchman.

NOW slowly, let it sink in.

Quietly, we go like sheep to slaughter. Does anybody remember the reason given for the establishment of the DEPARTMENT OF ENERGY during the Carter administration?

Anybody?  Anything?  No?  Didn’t think so!

Bottom line is, we’ve spent several hundred billion dollars in support of an agency, the reason for which very few people who read this can remember!  Ready?

It was very simple; and at the time, everybody thought it very
appropriate.

The Department of Energy was instituted on 8/04/1977, TO LESSEN OUR DEPENDENCE ON FOREIGN OIL.

Hey, pretty efficient, huh?

AND NOW IT’S 2012—35 YEARS LATER—AND THE BUDGET FOR THIS “NECESSARY” DEPARTMENT IS AT $24.2 BILLION A YEAR. IT HAS 16,000 FEDERAL EMPLOYEES AND APPROXIMATELY 100,000 CONTRACT EMPLOYEES; AND LOOK AT THE JOB IT HAS DONE!

(THIS IS WHERE YOU SLAP YOUR FOREHEAD AND SAY, “WHAT WERE THEY THINKING?")
34 years ago 30% of our oil consumption was foreign imports. Today 70% of our oil consumption is foreign imports.

Ah, yes—good old Federal bureaucracy.

NOW, WE HAVE TURNED OVER THE BANKING SYSTEM, HEALTH CARE, AND THE AUTO INDUSTRY TO THE SAME GOVERNMENT?

Hello! Anybody Home?

Signed, The Night Watchman

more on law and disorder, an update of no surprise to anyone.

They where lead on by the events of the time, it was not their fault, carried away by the momentum of the riots, it was the fault of those they robbed, and so on went the rant of the liberals and the far left; so what will their excuse be this time?

- g/, BRUXELLES, 04/8/2012 12:54

That is one of the best comments with regard to the riots and city burnings of last year.  And those were the exact excuses made.  As well as, oh how harsh the sentences for some who only ...... blah,blah.

Anyway, this caught my eye only minutes ago and it’s worth sharing. But it will not surprise anybody. Of course the libs will never accept it and that’s a major part of the problem(s) faced by society. 

Here’s another.

If you punish an offender severely he might not offend again. That would mean that he wouldn’t be generating any more work for legal aid lawyers. The law industry would suffer. Can’t have that. Lawyers need criminals to be out here offending. Judges need criminals out here. Social workers and the probation service need criminals. These geese are laying golden eggs.

- Cynic, Lincs, 04/8/2012 12:43

And here is the story.


Almost half of those held in riots have been re-arrested for crimes including rape, threats to kill and robbery

By Rebecca Camber

Almost half of those held over the riots have been re-arrested for a catalogue of crimes including rape, threats to kill and robbery.

Days before the anniversary of the disorder, official figures show that 44 per cent of riot suspects have been arrested on suspicion of committing fresh offences within the last 12 months.

The statistics, released under the Freedom of Information Act, have raised serious questions over the penalties handed out to offenders.

More than half of those locked up over the riots are already free and thousands more have evaded justice. Police in Nottingham made 143 arrests following the disorder in August last year. Of these, 86 were charged.

But in the last 12 months, 72 suspects – half of those arrested – have been held again for crimes including rape, arson, robbery, threats to kill and breaching bail or parole conditions.

The force said some of these offenders had been arrested for multiple crimes since their release.

In Bristol, 28 of the 53 arrested have faced further police action.

They are accused of carrying out 20 thefts and robberies, two rapes, nine assaults, 16 drugs offences and 14 of them have skipped bail, gone on the run or failed to comply with community orders, said Avon and Somerset Police.

Some of the largest police forces, such as the Metropolitan Police, have been unable to calculate the proportion of reoffending due to the sheer number of cases it had to deal with.

Not that very many people ever read this far down, but this blog was the creation of Allan Kelly and his friend Vilmar. Vilmar moved on to his own blog some time ago, and Allan ran this place alone until his sudden and unexpected death partway through 2006. We all miss him. A lot. Even though he is gone this site will always still be more than a little bit his. We who are left to carry on the BMEWS tradition owe him a great debt of gratitude, and we hope to be able to pay that back by following his last advice to us all:
  1. Keep a firm grasp of Right and Wrong
  2. Stay involved with government on every level and don't let those bastards get away with a thing
  3. Use every legal means to defend yourself in the event of real internal trouble, and, most importantly:
  4. Keep talking to each other, whether here or elsewhere
It's been a long strange trip without you Skipper, but thanks for pointing us in the right direction and giving us a swift kick in the behind to get us going. Keep lookin' down on us, will ya? Thanks.

Oh, and here's some kind of visitor flag counter thingy. Hey, all the cool blogs have one, so I should too. The Visitors Online thingy up at the top doesn't count anything, but it looks neat. It had better, since I paid actual money for it.
