Oh Snap! Mooch Puts The Dawg In The Pound

After hittin up on the Danish PM, taking selfies and having a good time during Mandela’s funeral, Mooch puts herself between da fool playa an dat ho. Oh snap, you just KNOW there was some head shaking, finger pointing, shoe banging, and some words later. Uh huh. In da pound witchu dawg!



Obama creates international incident with ‘selfie’ at Mandela service
Among the enduring images from Nelson Mandela’s massive memorial service in Johannesburg Tuesday will be one of a jovial President Obama taking a cell phone pic with his seat-mates, Denmark’s Prime Minister Helle Thorning-Schmidt and Britain’s David Cameron.

As the three of them smile for the camera, a stern-looking Michelle Obama can be seen staring straight ahead, hands clasped. As if to remind anyone who sees this photo years from now that it was, after all, a memorial service for one of the great human rights leaders.

The tsk-tsk-ing could be heard for miles.

Interpreting a series of photos taken at Mandela’s memorial service Tuesday, it looked like President Barack Obama was having fun posing for a selfie with British Prime Minister David Cameron and Denmark Prime Minister Helle Thorning-Schmidt, while wife Michelle Obama wanted no part of it.

In another series of three photos, Obama is seen chatting with a smiling Thorning-Schmidt, with the president touching her on her shoulder. In the third photo, the president and the first lady switched seats. While it is not known who suggested the seat change, Twitter users clearly feel it was the first lady’s call.

At least she didn’t have to cut a bitch. This time.

And I’m just so glad our President was the model of gravitas and dignity at this important and solemn international event. Makes me proud to be an American.

In the middle of the night

Guess I’m not sleeping so well lately. Oh sure, after a certain point in your life, getting up halfway through the night to use the potty becomes routine. Even getting up twice a night for that sometimes. No, lately I wake up, wide awake. Sometimes it takes me awhile to get back to sleep, and that’s really odd. Usually I can just close my eyes and I’m off to dreamland.

But sometimes late at night I make the mistake of coming downstairs to get something to drink, and oh hey, I’ll just go online for a minute. Because the middle of the night is when you really find out the unusual corners of the internet.

Did you know that conch is a nearly perfect source of optimum protein? All the benefits of saltwater fish, high levels of Omega- whatevers, compact mass, low harvesting cost, and so on. Plus it tastes great. And they live on algae. Problem is, they’ve been seriously over-fished, and not much has been done about it. In the middle of the night I find that there is just one fish farm operation for conch in all the world, down in the Turks and Caicos. Good for them. Ought to export the technology and make farm growing a thing on all the islands and shallow shores in and around the Caribbean and the Gulf. All that used to be wall to wall conchs, but there are 90% fewer of the big sea snails now than there were back in the 80s and 90s. Several countries have already outlawed conch fishing, including the USA. The Florida Keys used to be rife with them, but no more.

Free associative thinking gets you into those odd corners. I started out with a link to a really cool giant R/C airplane Doc sent in, and wound up looking into cabin pressure standards for various jet models and airlines. I did not know that the cabin pressure on a Boeing 737-7000/800/900 is set to around 8000-8400 feet when you fly. While that pressure level doesn’t cause immediate hypoxia in most people, it does give you only 75% of the oxygen you’d get at sea level. If you have COPD or any lung trouble, it can be pretty exhausting and hard to breath. No air in the air! The new Airbus A380 runs at a “cabin altitude” of only 5000 feet, plus has special humidification systems built in to fight the really dry air you get in jets. This gives you 98% of the oxygen you’d get at sea level, plus the higher inside pressure makes the flight seem quieter. Overall, it’s a much less tiring experience. The new 787 from Boeing is quite similar, running a cabin altitude of about 6000 feet. It really does make a huge difference in comfort.  Here’s a neat cabin altitude oxygen calculator.  I think higher cabin pressures and MUCH higher humidity, plus less recycled air, will make flying a lot healthier and more comfortable. Plus your ears won’t pop half as much.

Yup, odd stuff late at night. Although I think the above is an excellent idea!!

Bit of an early winter miracle at Greed League tonight; we actually managed a 3-4 split. This bunch has been Team Loser so bad this season. Ouch. But tonight it seemed we finally had our ducks in a row. Ok, fine, we lost the first game by 120. But then we got it together and took the second game by 180. I rolled a 223 and was actually low bowler for our side! Unreal. Our opponents, experts at points management (sandbaggers), had to bring out their A Game to win the third one, which they did by only 6 pins. We bowled them hard, running the scores up and over 1200 pins for the 5 man squads. I stayed relaxed and didn’t force the ball, and only moved to a more outside line halfway through, so I threw a 228 for that, which gave me a 645 series for the night. I’m more than happy with that. I didn’t have any big string of strikes for the 228 game like I did for the 223 game, but I closed all my frames, and that makes all the difference.

Ok, that’s enough. Back to bed. Well, nearly enough ...

all better now. Hey, wait a second ...

mandelamania sweeps the world. yawn. the word commie gets the boot

Just to show you a small example. I won’t bore anyone with any lengthy copy/paste of the article.

What interests me as it always does, is the absolute certainty that auntie (BBC) knows all and speaks for ALL Brits.

The BBC has defended its coverage and said Mandela’s death was of ‘considerable interest’ to audiences in the UK and across the rest of the world.

BS!  It’s of considerable interest to the BBC and libs and lefties and ppl who want to be seen as “caring” and a part of the parade.

And another thing ......

It’s the BBC license payer who is paying for it all, I don’t doubt.

BTW .... the number of complaints is 1500. 

image

In other really interesting news. Seriously folks.

The Labour run Birmingham (England) city council has invoked a ban on some words.  Remember only recently I asked what words or phrases would be banned next?  Well .....
The city council apparently has banned the word “Commie” in staff email.
Hey .... no way I could dream that one up.
Workers who use the term will see their messages blocked.
However .... and strangely ...  words such as pinko - red - Bolshevik - and leftie will survive.
And naturally words considered homophobic, racist, sexist are all no-nos.
Now then ... it’s a four page list which naturally has examples of the no-no words and so; it is only available as a printout because of course, it can not be emailed to staff.

SOME HISTORY OF INTEREST AND A BREAK (BRIEF) FROM THE USUAL MAYHEM

Something interesting on TV tonight I might catch on puter tomorrow.

It’s called “Hidden Killers: The Victorian Home”

Here’s a brief list of things. Some is old news and a few items were unknown to me. I think I’ll have to see the documentary cos it seems like an interesting subject. Sure is a different post for me at bmews.
I won’t list all ten.  If you’re curious there’s a link below.

image

1. Bread adulterated with alum

When basic staples like bread started to be produced cheaply and in large quantities for the new city dwellers, Victorian manufacturers seized on the opportunity to maximise profit by switching ingredients for cheaper substitutes that would add weight and bulk. Bread was adulterated with plaster of Paris, bean flour, chalk or alum. Alum is an aluminium-based compound, today used in detergent, but then it was used to make bread desirably whiter and heavier. Not only did such adulteration lead to problems of malnutrition, but alum produced bowel problems and constipation or chronic diarrhoea, which was often fatal for children.

3. Exploding toilets

Source: BBC History

The bathroom as we know it is a Victorian invention, but at first, it was a dangerous place. Besides horrible cases of scalding in the bath, newspapers reported deaths from cases of lavatories spontaneously exploding. The reason was that flammable gases such as methane and hydrogen sulphide, emanating from human waste, built up in the sewers and, in early toilets, leaked back into the home, where they could easily be ignited by the naked flame of a candle. It wasn’t until Thomas Crapper invented the siphon valve that such gases could be kept out of the house.
-30-

5. Flammable parkesine

An oft-forgotten British inventor is Alexander Parkes, who invented the mouldable material that we today call plastic. He christened it parkesine but it quickly became known by its American name of celluloid. Such early plastics were highly desirable because they allowed everything from brooches and hair combs to billiard balls, previously only available in expensive ivory, to be made cheaply. It was even used to make collars and cuffs that could be easily cleaned. Unfortunately, parkesine is also highly flammable - as it degrades, it can self-ignite and is explosive on impact. Not ideal for a billiard ball.

tasteless jokes about mandela can get you arrested

I haven’t a clue but might guess, what the Mandela machine is like in the USA at the moment.

Over here, you’d think it was akin to the 2nd coming.  I do believe there are some libs that are waiting for him to rise. Every damn time I tuen on the radio and the papers are still banging on and it is soooooo tiring.

I think there’s lots of folks and mostly white, who could care less but .... think they should and so they too have jumped on the bandwagon.
Lots of different reason for lots of different folks.
So with that said .... here’s my favorite columnist who I don’t think is ever wrong. And he is right on target with this subject, and in few words too.
Take a look.

Me, Me, Me Nelson Mandela

Richard Littlejohn
Daily Mail

Production of Porta-shrines was stepped up at the weekend as people rushed to make the death of Nelson Mandela all about themselves. In Glasgow, they even had a candlelit vigil, complete with teddy bears and flowers.

The BBC went berserk, clearing the schedules. If they’d approached the death of Mandela in the same way they handled Mrs Thatcher’s funeral, they would have invited on a few white supremacists in the interests of ‘balance’.

In Rugeley, Staffs, the Keystroke Kops arrested a sandwich shop owner who cracked a couple of tasteless Mandela jokes on the internet. Neil Phillips was questioned for eight hours, fingerprinted and had his DNA swabbed. Police also took away his computer.

What was utterly predictable was that football would have to get in on the act, too. It was Pray 4 Muamba time all over again.

At grounds around the country, there was a compulsory minute’s applause, largely because they can’t rely on football fans to stay silent for 60 seconds.

We were treated to the ridiculous sight of mascots — grown men dressed as giant cuddly toys, in XXXL football shirts — clapping away merrily in staged tribute to the great man. It’s what he would have wanted.

-30-

And btw .... what does the following tell you about immigration and the inability to deport those who overstay or don’t belong to begin with.

Plans to celebrate Christmas by holding a Moroccan street market, complete with camels, in Stoke-on-Trent have been cancelled. Immigration officials refused to issue visas to 40 Moroccan ‘artisans’ invited to take part, fearing they wouldn’t go home again.

Try to imagine the council meeting which decided the best way to celebrate Christmas in Staffordshire would be to hold a Moroccan festival.

Earlier this year, the writer A.N.  Wilson revisited Stoke, his home town, and claimed it had been transformed beyond recognition by mass immigration. If a few dozen Moroccans had disappeared, would anyone have noticed?

and again

Round 2 of “winter storm Dion”.

I think the cloud watchers are getting a bit full of themselves; now every rain storm and snow storm is getting a name, as if it’s historically significant? Oh please.

So anyway, here comes round 2. The snow started falling in earnest - and here in Clinton too - around 7am, and is slated to fall all day. We’ve already got more on the ground than we got on Sunday, but we didn’t get the ice underneath this time. So that’s good.

And it’s a solid heavy snow. You can tell from the absolute silence outside, and the blanketed feeling the house gets. So I’ll put on a nice heavy sweater and pour myself a nice hot cuppa.

Hey, a bit of a miracle last night. My whole team was present for Late League last night, we all bowled well, and we won all 3 games - 13 out of 16 points. We even wont the beer frame. I was feeling very positive and relaxed, and rolled 9 in a row in Game 2 for a 258. It coulda been more, maybe a 268 with 10, but I tried too hard and went XX0 in the 10th. Oh well. So I came out with a 596 for the night, and I’m more than happy with that, especially since I threw the Butterscotch Bomb the whole night.

murder? not guilty. why? because i’m a soldier of pisslam so killing isn’t murder. trial continues

So I sat down to breakfast this morning, a nice steaming coffee in front of me, passed over the pages of yet more (and more and more) coverage of Saint Mandela and landed on page 5 or perhaps it was six.
btw, one somewhat conservative paper said under a large headline declared that Mandela was a colossus. Well, if he wasn’t the media have sure made him one.

So anyway there I am with a page open to the trial of these miserable no account black sombitches who quite literally and in broad daylight, butchered a Brit soldier on a street after first running him down with their vehicle.  Poor guy didn’t stand a chance, I saw the video where he’s walking across a street and the car turns in behind him and knocks him down.

Why are these niggers worthy of a trial?  Isn’t a trial supposed to be where guilt or innocence is determined?  One of the scum is pleading not guilty, this in spite of the fact that there he is in full view, it was even posted here at bmews at the time, with bloody hands and clever. He’s even explaining to the person shooting the video why it is that the deed was done and that he was a soldier of pisslam.  Which of course is why it was not murder and so the innocent plea.  And the system goes along with the expense and anguish to the family of the fallen soldier. 

It has been further reported that the two were trying to cut out body parts.
But in spite of it all they get a trial. And that isn’t all.

They also get to be referred to as .... Mister.  WTF?

Lee Rigby murder trial: ‘I am a soldier of Allah,’ says Michael Adebolajo and insists he has no regrets over killing

image

The man accused of killing and trying to behead Fusilier Lee Rigby declared his love for al-Qa’ida in court on Monday and claimed he was a soldier for Allah in an ongoing war against the British military.

Seated just yards from the family of his victim, Michael Adebolajo, 28, told the Old Bailey that he had no regrets about launching the attack on the defenceless soldier as he crossed the road near his barracks in Woolwich, south-east London. “I will never regret obeying the command of Allah so that’s all I can say,” he told a packed courtroom. “I’m a mujahid, I’m a soldier: I do what Allah commands me to do. I can’t do anything else.”

Mr Adebolajo, who denies murder, claimed that at the end of his trial he should be killed, freed or ransomed back to Islamist fighters in Afghanistan or Iraq. During his evidence that ranged through his Christian upbringing, his teenage conversion to Islam and his radicalisation into a jihadist fighter, Mr Adebolajo claimed he would have been cast “into hellfire” if he had refused to fight because he “loved my wife and children”, the court heard.

“I’m a soldier and this is war,” said Mr Adebolajo, who is married with six children. His last son was born four days before the attack. “I’m a soldier of Allah and I understand that some people might not recognise this because we don’t wear fatigues and we don’t go to the Brecon Beacons to train and this sort of thing but we are still soldiers in the sight of Allah.

“To me, this is all that matters. Basically it is a war between Islam and those militaries that invade Muslim lands. One of them just happens to be the British military and therefore the war continues even to this day.”

And so, like all brave and good soldiers who have faced death more than once in battle, these vermin ram a car into the enemy, from behind him, disable him entirely and then proceed to butcher him. In full view of the public.  But it’s okay cos they are ... ‘soldiers’.  They soil the word while a genuine soldier has been found guilty of murder for deleting a wounded taliban terrorist who also wore no uniform.  He got life and must serve a minimum of ten years, and the Brit public is outraged. Except of course the libtards who continue to preach tolerance and respect for life blah,blah.

With five prison officers sitting close to him around the dock, Mr Adebolajo told the court that he prayed to Allah the night before the attack to ensure that he and his co-defendant, Michael Adebowale, 22, targeted a soldier rather than a civilian. He claimed that the original plan had not been to run him down, but “Allah caused” the 25-year-old to cross the road in front of them.

Mr Adebolajo claimed he saw the soldier moving before he attacked him with a meat cleaver, prompting Fusilier Rigby’s widow to leave the court in tears. Mr Adebolajo said he tried, but failed, to cut off his head with another knife sharpened at his home before the attack. During comments directed towards the Rigby family, Mr Adebolajo accepted that he killed somebody that they loved. “I just hope that soldier’s life and his death might prevent the deaths of other soldiers who are being sent to die in unjust wars and save the lives of Muslims who are being bombed and killed by British forces,” he said.

He told the court that he was raised as a Christian by his family and during his childhood in Romford, east London, most of his friends were white, including one who became a soldier and died during the Iraq war.

He said he converted to Islam during his first year at Greenwich University and had attended a number of demonstrations organised by the banned Islamist group al-Muhajiroun. Mr Adebolajo was jailed for 51 days after one protest following his conviction for two counts of assaulting a police officer in 2006.

Mr Adebolajo and Mr Adebowale both deny murder and attempted murder of a police officer. The case continues.

Oh Happy Day

Stoopid ape, that’s the last time he ever plays the Knockout Game by himself. Next time, bring yo gang to be sure!


A knockout game gone wrong in Vegas has caught the attention of many as a guy tries to knock down a girl and ends up getting beat up by her instead.

A video that was uploaded to World Star Hip Hop shows one major failed attempt at the deadly game known as knockout. Knockout, a game that involves randomly knocking down unknowing pedestrians, has been on the rise amongst young adults and teens in the United States.

Traced back from link to link to link, and I think the source is here.

First, let me correct the PC BS in the above quote at one of the intermediary sites: “Knockout, a game that involves randomly knocking down unknowing WHITE pedestrians, has been on the rise amongst BLACKS in the US. “ Almost always, the groid has at least 3 accomplices to aid in the beating. This fool only had one, the idiot “friend” who was taking the video. You can hear him counting out the paces as the Chimp Chump runs across the mall to start the attack, then in typical moron style the idiot so gleefully chimps out when the blow lands that he nearly drops the camera and muffs the shot. But it’s too late then, because this time the white girl saw it coming and avoided the blow, and proceeds to instantly go into counter offense mode. Good for her. Of course, the guy she’s with then tries to get a placekicker job withe the Giants, using Chimp Chump’s face as the ball when he delivers a 40 yard attempt. And the two of them continue to wail the crap out of the would be attacker, as other white folks stroll placidly by doing their shopping.

Oh, and I’m pretty sure I’ve got the right source, as comment #3 reads

as black folk we need to do this to all white folks the right way!!

and it goes downhill from there.

Too bad this woman wasn’t armed. Drawing down on this beast and flattening his melon head with a .45 lead hammer would have been entirely justifiable. Shame we don’t have a few hundred videos like that one. Yet. But this one’s a start.




And since the video ends before “Mall Security” shows up, we can only assume Chump gets up and runs away. Which means he totally lost face, in addition to his injuries, so he’ll be back, looking for revenge. Police better put a collar on this hater before he kills someone. Probably going after some little white granny next time, just to be sure.

This Can’t Be PC

I’ve heard of this tune for ages, but until this afternoon I’d never actually heard it. So I had no idea it was Christmas music.

Definitely a late 50s, early 60s vibe. Italian music, via Brooklyn NY.

Funny, her family is Italian. Jersey Italian. Which is NOT at all Snooki and the Gang. No. So we do the Christmas Eve thing every year. The fish! The food! The music! The booze! The dozens of cousins! And this song has NEVER been played, or even mentioned. Not once. What, it’s forbidden? It’s not PC? What’s up with that?

It’s such a fun tune, you want to wave your hands around, talk loud, sing along and act all stereotypical. Eh! Needs a few more verses though.

The Big Fizzle

Major Snow Storm Slams East Coast

It’s The End Of The World As We Know It

A powerful storm that crept across the country dropped snow, freezing rain and sleet on the Mid-Atlantic region and headed northeast Sunday, turning NFL playing fields in Pennsylvania into winter wonderlands, dumping a foot of snow in Delaware and threatening a messy Monday commute in the northeast corridor.

The storm forced the cancellation of thousands of flights across the U.S. and slowed traffic on roads ...

so my wife ran out to the stores and got us bags full of essential things to eat, because the big storm was going to smash us.

so I went out a few hours later and got us bags full of all the good stuff to eat, cakes and pies and chips and salsa, ice cream on sale for half price, cheese and crackers, sodas and beer, because the storm was going to smash us. Filled up the gas tanks, had flashlights and batteries ready, extra blankets and so on.

It’s midnight. It’s been snowing since around 3pm.

We’ve had ... oh, about 3/4 of an inch. Maybe a bit less. And it stopped snowing around 8 or 9. And tomorrow it’s going to warm up and melt away.

Garrrggh. This almost always happens. The storms either move up the coast and we’re too far inland, or they come in from the West, but to the North of us. And we get ... diddly.  Sure, I should say a prayer we’re so lucky. I know. But it sort of feels like we were ripped off.

just too darn young to die. but they do.

Damn if this and too many others like it aren’t too sad for words.

This young girl bullied for red hair?  A yr or so ago, maybe 2 years by now, I heard about ppl with red hair were being picked on but had not realized the extent of it. It’s nothing but plain crazy.  Throughout this year of 2013, this is not the 1st or the 2nd, not even the 5th time I have read about young kids, in early teens and some not even in the teens, who have committed suicide over issues involving bullying over looks or weight and red hair.
As of Sept. 11 there were at least 9. One was a 12 year old girl.  Then a boy of 14 and the list just seems endless.
Most bizarre aside from how depressing it is, is that first of all, most are young girls and almost all (male as well as female) are young white kids.

Some girls have killed themselves over a boy.  Some are picked on for .... ??????  Hell’s bells.  For no particular reason at all.
AND ... this really does have me wondering if there isn’t something in the water after all, there are kids who are bullied on the net. On the net for gosh sake.  So why don’t they just drop Twitter or Facebook or block or ignore the trolls?  Apparently, they are not able to.  So they kill themselves.

I have read that sometimes they will post a photo of themselves and trolls will start telling them that they should die and they are worthless and ugly, and they buy it. 

I just think it’s damn sad that young kids and young adults feel deeply enough about what trolls say, that they believe the only relief is to die.


Make ginger taunts a hate crime, says father of girl, 15, found dead in the woods after being bullied

What a sad waste. And one of the surprising things about this is that the kids and young adults who do top themselves, are not necessarily dumb people.  School grades in many cases are above the average, or so I have read. 

I wonder why so many more white than any other group.

to be or not to be a jerk. that is the question. whether tiz smarter ta be just stupid or >>?

Honest. I am telling the truth and the whole truth. Or very close to it.

I do not go looking for things to upset myself or get me seeing imaginary and unmanageable red curtains. Maybe I should simply ignore those columnists who I know damn well will bother me.  Actually, there are a few I do avoid for that reason.  It isn’t just what they say alone but how. And I also started some months back to avoid those who I know have an anti American slant without knowing a thing about us, outside a visit or two.
Well anyway ....

For reasons that really do escape me, I will on occasion take a quick look at the Piers Morgan column in our Sunday magazine edition of the Sunday Mail.  This morning was one of those occasions and while I didn’t see any bright red curtains, I did have the thought that ppl like him and that fool Sean Penn, really must believe that the general public are know nothings and easily fooled.  OK I can buy easily fooled like during presidential elections.

What got my goat this early morning was the idea that he thought he could easily pass off something so old as something brilliant and new.

Are most of you folks familiar with an old movie that stared Peter Sellers called, “The Mouse That Roared”?

Some readers will have seen that very funny movie, but there might be a number who never heard of it. So for those who are not at all familiar, here’s the basic idea.

An impoverished backward nation declares a war on the United States of America, hoping to lose, but things don’t go according to plan.

The idea is to immediately surrender and then become the recipient of American foreign aid to help their recovery.
That’s it.  The movie dates to about 1959, so not too recent you will agree.

And that friends brings me to the reason for this post. Because ha,ha isn’t he the clever one, Piers appears to credit Penn with being, well, funny and clever.  Even a Brit audience might recall that movie.  So while Morgan is writing for an essentially UK audience, he must think all of them are easily fooled.  But enough of what I think.  Here’s the subject of this post in his words.

Sean Penn’s a whirlwind of intensity and passion - but great fun, too


By, Piers Morgan

The text message was intriguing: ‘Want to come to a small private house party and meet the Haiti Prime Minister?’ asked Sean Penn.

I befriended Hollywood’s most firebrand actor after several interviews.

He’s an extraordinary whirlwind of intensity and passion, on and off screen. But great fun, too.

The Haitian PM, Laurent Lamothe, was an impressive man – he’s driven through a series of bold initiatives to try and pull the country out of the chaos caused by the 2010 earthquake.

But it was double Oscar-winner Penn who impressed me even more.

He spoke powerfully and eloquently about what more needs to be done.

Now here’s the brief bit of bs that is the reason for this post.
How phony can he get? 

He told a hilarious story about the notorious former Haitian dictator Papa Doc Duvalier.

‘He was urged to attack America by some of his advisors, on the basis that, after they won, the Americans would then pay for reconstruction of the country as they did with Germany and Japan.

He thought for a few seconds, then shook his head and said, “I can’t risk this.”

‘When his henchmen asked why, he explained: “Because we might win the war!”’

Penn fell about laughing.

‘That shows you the incredible, unique, fighting spirit of the Haitian people.’

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.
