Once Again, The One And Only Post

April 9, 2021

Doing pretty good today after the tooth extraction yesterday. My dentist is one of the top rated guys in the state year after year.

I slept through most of the night, got up to use the potty at some point before dawn, went back to bed and slept late. Used another ice pack, took my pills. Jaw feels pretty good. Might not need another pain pill after this one. Still, I’m going to take it easy today, and just hang out and read a book. And give my bowling ball the full cleaning treatment for tonight’s league.

Add another state to the Freedom List. That makes it 20 so far I think.

Tennessee Now Has Constitutional Carry

Tennessee Gov. Bill Lee (R) signed a bill on Thursday that will allow most adults to carry a handgun without a permit.

The Tennessean reports the bill, which will go into effect on July 1, allows people 21 and older to carry handguns open and concealed without a permit. Members of the military aged 18 to 20 will also be permitted to carry handguns without a permit under the new law. The law does not apply to long guns.

The Tennessean notes that the legislation is backed by the National Rifle Association (NRA) but is opposed by Tennessee’s leading law enforcement groups who argue the bill could potentially increase crime and officer vulnerability.

“I signed constitutional carry today because it shouldn’t be hard for law-abiding Tennesseans to exercise their #2A rights. Thank you members of the General Assembly and @NRA for helping get this done,” Lee wrote on Twitter.

The bill will remove misdemeanor offenses for most people who carry a handgun without a permit while also increasing punishments for other gun crimes such as increasing a theft of a firearm from a misdemeanor to a felony.

State Democrats are largely against the bill, the Tennessean reports.

“It seems that more is never enough when it comes to gun laws in this state,” Democratic state Rep. Larry Miller said according to the newspaper.

Did you get a load of the hypocrisy from (D) Miller? 20,000 gun laws in the country and the libs are always pushing for more, more control, more convoluted “common sense”. But when a state moves to support the Second Amendment’s “shall not be infringed” it’s suddenly ”they always want more laws”. What a carbuncle.

I’m scenting a trend here. While 41 of our 50 states are Shall Issue, 20 of those are now permitless carry. I haven’t looked it up, but I’m betting most of those are Republican lead.

Prince Charles has died. He was 99 and ill for a long time.

image

LONDON — Prince Philip, the Greece-born royal who as the husband of Queen Elizabeth II was the longest-serving consort to a British sovereign, died Friday. He was 99.

“His Royal Highness passed away peacefully this morning at Windsor Castle,” the royal family announced. “Further announcements will be made in due course. The Royal Family join with people around the world in mourning his loss.”

The Duke of Edinburgh’s death came 12 days before Queen Elizabeth’s 95th birthday on April 21, two months before what would have been his 100th birthday on June 10 and on the 16th anniversary of the marriage of Prince Charles and Camilla. Under a long-standing plan known as “Operation Forth Bridge,” his death ushers in a period of national mourning.

The royal family webpage was replaced with a tribute page in black in memory of the prince, who was married to Elizabeth for nearly 74 years.

New Covid term: breakthrough cases. Because the vaccine isn’t 100% and people are catching the ‘rona more than 2 weeks after their 2nd shot, when their immunity should be at maximum and past the system stress from the injections.

At this point most of the new cases in the US are of the more contagious UK variant type B117, although NYC has it’s own personal variant.

https://www.clickorlando.com/news/local/2021/03/29/dozens-in-central-florida-contract-covid-19-after-being-fully-vaccinated/

Oh, and the more basic Jansen-19 vaccine from J&J/Merck is also having problems. A vaccination site at a Dick’s Sporting Goods in Colorado was shut down after they gave out 1700 injections in a day and 11 people felt dizzy and quesy. 2 went to hospital, the rest got a juice box as treatment.

April 8, 2021

Ok, I survived the tooth extraction. I took one of my last Vicodins an hour before the appointment, from a 4 year old prescription. So I was at least half numb going in. Got the swab, got the shots, couldn’t feel much. Then he started pulling. Then I needed a couple more shots.

I sat in that waiting room
It seemed like all afternoon
The nurse finally said doc’s ready for you
You’re not gonna feel a thing we’ll give you some Novocaine
That tooth will be fine in a minute or two
Then he stuck that needle down deep in my gum
And he started drilling before I was numb

After the 5th shot took effect and half my tongue felt as big as a grapefruit, doc got back to work. All I could taste/feel was the taste of ice cold chromed steel and this strong rocking sensation. By the time I was levitating out of the chair he was done. A bunch of stitches that I couldn’t feel, an ice pack and a couple scrips. No new oxycontin, just acetominphin with coedine. Rats. 4 hours later and I’m coming out of Zombie Mode. Can’t eat, so of course I’m ravenous. But I’m not in pain. Life is a Beach after all?

And it was so nice out today that I put on shorts, took off my shirt, went outside and got my first dose of natural vitamin D in 7 months or longer. Damn, I can’t have a drink either. Grrr. I’ll manage and just mellow naturally. So I made fudge brownies with extra walnuts.

Totally unexpected. Not. Par for the course in the Negro Felon League as far as I’m concerned.

Former Jets Player Phillip Adams Killed 5, Himself

The gunman who killed five people including a prominent doctor in South Carolina was former NFL player Phillip Adams, who killed himself early Thursday, according to a source who was briefed on the investigation.

The source, who spoke on condition of anonymity because he wasn’t authorized to speak publicly, said Adams’ parents live near the doctor’s home in Rock Hill, and that he had been treated by the doctor. The source said Phillips killed himself after midnight with a .45-caliber weapon.

The York County Sheriff’s Office said they had searched for hours before finding the suspect in a nearby home.

Adams, 33, played in 78 NFL games over five seasons for six teams. A safety and special teams player from South Carolina State, he joined the 49ers in 2010 as a seventh-round draft pick.
Rarely a starter, Adams also was with New England, Seattle, Atlanta, Oakland and the New York Jets, finishing his career with the Falcons in 2015.

Looks like there is one survivor in critical condition, and that a couple 911 calls came in. Cops have no idea at this point why this happened.

A motive behind the murder of five people in South Carolina, including a prominent doctor, remained scant Thursday as authorities continued their investigation into suspect Phillip Adams – who later turned the gun on himself – and played two 911 calls.

York County Sheriff Kevin Tolson said at an afternoon news conference that investigators were still on the hunt for a motive. He said there was no indication there was a doctor-patient relationship between Adams and Dr. Robert Lesslie when the former football player broke into the man’s home, allegedly killing the doctor, his wife, their grandkids and an air-conditioning tech.

Another wounded victim was in critical condition, Tolson said.

Cuomo Best Governor In USA !!!

Best at driving small businesses out of business that is.

Just three days after New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo unveiled a plan to hike taxes on big business in the Empire State comes disturbing statistics about small business there.

According to new data from Facebook, New York tied with Pennsylvania for having the most small business closures in the country during the coronavirus pandemic,

The social media giant’s first-ever Global State of Small Business Report, which surveyed over 35,000 small businesses impacted by COVID-19 across 27 countries, finds that the Empire State and Keystone State had the highest reported small business closure rates in the U.S. at 31% each, followed closely behind by Massachusetts with a reported closure rate of 30%.

NY, PA, and MA are all run by progressive commie democrats. They had some of the toughest lockdowns in the nation, and they’re all in the Top 10 for highest taxes. Minority owned businesses disproportionately impacted of course. Did you expect anything different from any of that?

Private Dobbs from F Troop has passed away. Is there anyone from that 60s TV show who is still living?

James Hampton, 84, Parkinson’s

Actor and Director James Hampton, best known as bugler Hannibal Dobbs on “F Troop,” Caretaker in the original “The Longest Yard” and the father in “Teen Wolf,” has died at age 84.

The Hollywood Reporter, citing a family source, revealed that Hampton died at his home in Fort Worth, Texas due to complications from Parkinson’s disease.

Born in Oklahoma City in 1936, Hampton was mostly raised in Dallas until he attended the University of North Texas and was ultimately drafted into the U.S. Army. THR reports that he was in the cavalry at Fort Knox before being sent to active duty overseas. When he returned home, he studied acting with Sidney Lumet’s father, Baruch Lumet at the Knox Street Theater in Dallas.

Eventually, he moved to New York and found a job on the Oscar-nominated movie “The Cliff Dwellers.” Due to its success, he went to Los Angeles where he landed a role on the TV show “Gunsmoke” in 1963. On the show, he met Burt Reynolds, which launched a friendship and working relationship that would endure until Reynolds’ death in 2018.
...
Independent of Reynolds, Hampton studied with Leonard Nimoy, who helped him land the part of Pvt. Hannibal Dobbs on “F Troop,” which only ran two seasons (65 episodes) but lived on in syndication.

I hope someone plays Taps at his funeral, in a excreable, talentless, barely recognizable way. It would be fitting.

Stupid Joe* Wants To Use EO To End Run 2A Gray Areas

Bite me plugs. GOA and NRA will drag you through the courts forever. Not that they’re even slightly reliable anymore.

On April 7, 2021,“> the White House released a fact sheet announcing that President Joe Biden will use the Department of Justice (DOJ) to publish model red flag “legislation,” address AR-pistols with stabilizer braces, and issue a rule to “stop the proliferation of ‘ghost guns.’”

Breitbart News reported that Biden planned to put forward executive action on gun controls Thursday, and the fact sheet provides an outline detailing what those actions may entail.

An arm stabilizer brace is not a shoulder stock, by the BATF’s own rules. And “ghost guns” is such a crock. Anyone can build their own gun, either from parts or by machining one yourself. It’s legal everywhere. My online gun buddy John Jay even built a wooden AR-15 and it worked just fine. And of course, if you built it, you own it. And if you own it you can sell it. Even if it doesn’t have a serial number. But doing this kind of thing as a basement business is a big No No.

Wyoming Gov Signs Voter ID Into Law

Wyoming Gov. Mark Gordon signed a bill into law Tuesday that will require residents to show some form of identification when voting in person in the next election.

While some state Democrats criticized the bill as “voter suppression,” state Rep. Chuck Gray, a Republican, called it a “victory for the citizens of Wyoming,” according to the Cowboy State Daily.

“It is a necessary function of our Republic to provide our citizens with confidence that our elections are secure, fair, and valid,” he said. “I am proud that we were able to meet this important milestone for Wyoming.” Gray was a sponsor of the bill.

Rep. Dan Zwonitzer, a Republican, said he doesn’t believe the bill will suppress anyone’s vote because of amendments added to it that allow voters to use alternate forms of ID, such as a Wyoming student ID, Medicare ID or a tribal ID card, according to the Oil City News in Casper, Wyo.

...

The bill comes amid the fierce debate over Georgia’s new voting law that requires an ID to request an absentee ballot and spurred Major League Baseball to move its July All-Star Game out of Atlanta. The decision has made some Republicans, including former President Trump, call for a baseball boycott.

State Sen. Anthony Bouchard, a Republican and sponsor of the Wyoming bill, wondered after it was signed into law, “So which #woke corporation will attack our state next?”

I’ve been going on about this for well over a decade. Pity that it took such a fiasco as the last election to finally get even a couple of states to do something. I hope their new law requires the voter rolls to be kept up to date continuously, subject to examination with consequences. Registration ought to close at least 60 days prior to an election to allow plenty of time for ID verification. Getting the dead, the absent, and the illegals off the rolls is the very first cornerstone of a honest election system. Georgia is on point with their ID for absentee, making it an in person request. And it’s nice of Wyoming to allow several kinds of ID, but I hope the requirements for those are stringent. Proof of citizenship, proof of address, proof of primary address, criminal background felony check.

Update: Maybe make it a 3fer?
PA to exhume the dead ...  off the voter rolls.

Pennsylvania, one of the top battlegrounds of the 2020 election, has agreed to remove the names of about 21,000 dead people from voter registration rolls before the general elections this year.

The agreement was reached last week, according to the Public Interest Legal Foundation, an election-integrity watchdog group that first identified the names of 21,000 dead people who were still registered to vote a month before the 2020 election.

The organization provided Pennsylvania state officials with the names of 21,000 dead registrants who were not removed from the voting rolls after their deaths.

The suit, filed in U.S. District Court for the Middle District of Pennsylvania, said Pennsylvania failed to update voter registration records—violating the federal “motor voter” law. Pennsylvania law requires election officials to reject ballots cast by individuals no longer alive.

Of course PA has no way of ever figuring out how many of these stiffs voted at least once.

We played Frank’s team last night at Old Guys league, and two of his guys were out. The absentee penalties gave us 20 extra pins effective handicap. I like Frank and we enjoy being competitive with each other. So I threw a 234 in the first game to his 178, haha. We took that one. We took the next one too, opening our lead to a bit over 100 pins. My guys didn’t come through in the final game, so we lost that, but held onto total wood to go 5-2 for the night. I rolled a 564 series, averaging 188. So, not bad. I’m seeing that my DV8 ball does real well when very clean, but falls short after picking up 2 games worth of oil and dirt. If I don’t clean it for a couple weeks it’s pretty much worthless.

The 5 point win might be enough to keep us in 3rd place in this league. We’ll have to see how the other teams did, as the pack is very close with only 4 weeks left in this half season. I’m thinking half seasons is the way to go, as it keeps the two top teams from locking down the entire year after 9 weeks or so.

[ Update: we slipped to 4th by a single point. And we face the best teams for the last 3 weeks of league. Please team, don’t be like the Mets and cave at the last minute. ]

I heard that Rich is over the ‘rona and back at Monday night league, but his son Brian is in the hospital. Prayers for him. He’s rather overweight and a bit developmentally challenged, which is a bad combination for the But Covid. He’s a really great young man and we get along. I mentioned Ivermectin and Fluvoxamine to them a few weeks ago; they’d never heard of either one. I’m guessing they didn’t remember.

Still here. Still not dead. Been pulled back into this Covid posting thing. I am an advocate for out-patient early treatment, which barely exists in this country. So I keep my eye on a number of sites that follow drug developments and trials, and other sites that follow case levels and similar. Lots going on in both realms lately, with NJ’s Patch forum posting on NBC’s analysis of USA Today’s analysis of the Johns-Hopkins data that shows big case spikes in Michigan, New York, New Jersey, and Florida. Trying to drill down to the demographic and county levels, finding that ... no surprise ... it’s primarily two or three groups in the low income urban areas of at least 3 of these states. But even though the NY case rate is going wild, hospitalization and ICU is still quite low. NJ doesn’t seem much different.

https://www.democratandchronicle.com/story/news/2021/03/29/covid-cases-soar-new-york-by-county/115649718/

But the MSM is doing their best to jab the panic button as hard as they can, crying “Third Wave!!!”, blaming lower mask usage and “unsafe” opening of these states, 3 out of 4 run by progressive commies Democrats for ages, with the most stringent restrictions in the nation.

Meanwhile, most of the rest of the country is like “Covid? What Covid?”

It gets tiresome.

We had a nice time visiting with everyone for Easter. Loads of good food. Wifely and I have to learn how to bake small. She made her cheesecake for dessert, and I took down a full sized quiche as a side dish. Everyone said they were wonderful, but they barely got eaten on. We came home with 3/4 of a quiche and half a cheesecake. At least they drank up all the wine we took.

It was interesting talking with S, who works at a doctor’s office. She was the first person we knew who caught the But Covid, and was over it by early March last year. She’d had what she thought was a mild cold for a few days, but later on when her whole office was given an antigen test she had the antibodies. But when the vaccines came around, she got both injections. I asked her why, since she had natural immunity from having the virus earlier. “It seemed like the right thing to do, and nobody knows how long the immunity lasts, and the antibodies don’t stay around forever.” No they don’t, but the T cells remember. And I’m pretty sure that the T cells are not ultra specific; close enough is good enough, and immunity to one variant is immunity to another variant. But I could be wrong. Some people get the flu every few years, even when they’ve had an earlier strain and even had the flu shot every year. So maybe her approach is right. But I do wonder how many millions of us are getting these vaccines after already having had the virus, which seems like a waste of time to me.


~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Had the vaccine? Good, now have it again. And again. And again. Forever

A National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID) new Phase 1 clinical trial was launched recently to investigate the safety, reactogenicity and immunogenicity of Moderna’s mRNA-1273 vaccine against the South African SARS-CoV-2 variant known as B.1.351.
...
Vaccine makers are now modifying their formulations due to the emergence of what can be problematic variants. But of all of the variants emerging thus far, the South African variant appears to cause the most concern. It appears to be 50% more infectious, and the mutant is more adept at evading natural and vaccine-induced immunity.

Moderna has initiated this study along with support from NIAID as a potential way to develop a booster shot or as a stand-alone vaccine. This study is organized as a reaction to the imminent threat posed by variants, such as the one from South Africa. During this study, the sponsor will also look at different dose scenarios in addition to mixes of two different formulations.

While Dr. Antony Fauci was recently on record that the existing vaccines are still effective, “…out of an abundance of caution, NIAID has continued its partnership with Moderna to evaluate this variant vaccine candidate should there be a need for an updated vaccine.”

Once you submit, you will be a guinea pig forever. Not only you, but your unborn child as well. This will never end.

HAPPY EASTER !!!

We’ve got all the baking done and packed, and we’re about ready to go to the SIL’s. So there will be Ham!™ at some point, but that’s after hours of nibblies and wine. I made a really nice full size quiche for that, mushrooms, ham, and cheese. I didn’t make bread for once. I would have, but SIL said I didn’t need to. Fine by me.

And it’s not even freezing cold or raining here today. Miniature Easter miracle.

Only a small Easter basket this morning here. We’ve been nibbling on jelly beans for several weeks now anyway. Shame that there were no bags of the spicy kind this year, or any of the licorice only ones either. And no dark chocolate Lindt bunnies, which are the very best but often very hard to find after February.

Constitutional Carry Now The Law In Iowa

Gov. Kim Reynolds has signed legislation to eliminate a requirement that Iowans obtain a permit to acquire or carry handguns and loosen other state restrictions.

House File 756 “protects the Second Amendment rights of Iowa’s law-abiding citizens while still preventing the sale of firearms to criminals and other dangerous individuals,” the governor said in a statement Friday afternoon.

The law also takes “greater steps to inform law enforcement about an individual’s mental illness helping ensure firearms don’t end up in the wrong hands,” she said.

“We will never be able to outlaw or prevent every single bad actor from getting a gun, but what we can do is ensure law-abiding citizens have full access to their constitutional rights while keeping Iowans safe,” the Osceola Republican said.

HF 756 enacts permit-less “constitutional carry” provisions similar to those in 18 other states that gun rights advocates say will enhance individual rights while removing what sponsor Rep. Steve Holt, R-Denison, called a requirement that they get a “permission slip from the government” to exercise their Second Amendment rights to buy and carry a firearm.

Iowa is now the 19th state to enact what Vermont has had since even before it was a state. This is what “shall not be infringed” means.

There are currently 41 shall-issue states, including permitless-carry states that issue permits for purposes of reciprocity (allowing residents of their state to carry in other states with favorable reciprocity). Also, there are states that may be identified as shall-issue that, in practice, operate on a may-issue basis.

image

So roughly half (19 of 41) of the 82% of the country that is shall issue is also permitless. Bet they don’t have “high capacity magazine” bans either. And that right extends to many of the other states, as it should. That’s what reciprocity is all about. Any right is universal, and any permit or license goes with you. Everywhere, or at least it should. After all, if you’re married in Arizona you still count as married in Virginia, and having a New York driver’s license let’s you drive in Oregon.

Bowling Blogging !!!

Friday night from Hell at Cheap League. Our team was abhorrent. Their team was abhorrent, but slightly less bad. Scores were down across the league, with all kinds of ugly splits all over the place. Blame it on the lanes, which were oiled very long and wide. This leads to a lot of gutter balls for people who throw an “out and back” hook, and almost no hook from those who throw a “down and in” kind. I should write myself a note and keep it in my bag: throw a straight ball from the right when conditions are terrible.

We managed to win just a single game, 2-5. I threw the best series on my team by 21 pins, a pathetic 434. Mr. & Mrs. Newbie threw in the mid 300s. Awful.


~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Here’s a link to Dr. Levy’s new free ebook on hydrogen peroxide. LINK.  Somewhat similar to the older The One Minute Miracle ebook, it talks a lot about nebulized H2O2 for the prevention and cure of many viral infections. While I do do some of this nebulizing stuff once in a while, I’m not a super believer in it. Call me a light adherent. A couple times a week for a few minutes. But the concept is simple: H2O2 is known to be a very effective disinfectant when used externally. It is also created and used by your own body, in significant amounts. While your nose does create Nitric Oxide, another potent disinfectant, it can only make so much. So getting some H2O2 mist in your nose, throat, mouth, bronchial passages and lungs is going to help. A little is all that’s needed; I can’t repeat often enough that we’re talking about very dilute solutions, <=0.25%, of food grade H2O2 which does not have the stabilizers and preservative chemicals in it that the 99¢ jug you get at the dollar store does.

There is no money in H2O2 therapy. A nebulizer is not expensive, and you don't buy one from the pharmacy with a prescription. Amazon. Even the $20 you spend on a small bottle of food grade H2O2 is enough to last you for a year. A gallon of distilled water is a buck, and if you make some of it into saline solution by adding a bit of uniodized salt, that salt is less than a penny's worth. So there will never be a giant double blind randomized controlled trial of thousands of people, because no one other than a purely beneficent government would sponsor it. And we don't have any of those on earth.

But what if it works? What if this would cure you of the Covid when you first get it, or if a few minutes a week would keep you from getting it ever? What if hundreds of millions of people did this? Goodbye pandemic? Given that it's completely safe, it's worth a try.

The Kakistocracy of Suckageddon

At some point, the art of graceful, intellectual, elegant writing becomes not just superfluous but counterproductive. Bluntness becomes the norm, but when the message is reduced to over used and unimaginative strings of vulgarity, the message is lost. This essay doesn’t go quite that far, but seems to be a new low from The American Spectator.

Let’s face it: Joe Biden sucks.

Everything about him sucks. He sucks as a messenger, his economic policies suck, he completely sucks as a truth-teller. He sucks in the integrity department.

And people suffering from the debilitating effects of old age can tell you that absolutely sucks. You are not the person you used to be, and you can’t do the things you used to do.

Joe Biden sucked before he became increasingly, cruelly incapacitated by the decline of his faculties. Thursday’s Potemkin sham of a press conference, in which pre-written questions and scripted answers replaced an honest dialogue with the American people over the state of our union, made that clear.

That press conference sucked. It wasn’t a press conference; it was a book report. We shouldn’t have been forced to embrace Biden’s suck.

It sucked for eight solid years of the Obama–Biden administration. Everybody knew it. The Democrats blamed it on George W. Bush. They weren’t completely wrong in that. But Obama told America to embrace the suck. He said there was no magic wand to bring back economic prosperity, at the same time he told the world America sucks, then proved it by starting and prolonging wars around the planet that were neither in America’s interest nor the interests of the people affected by them.

And the Democrats’ auxiliary suck-meisters in the media made it their livelihoods to explain the suck. Obama was a great president, they said, and if you don’t agree you’re a racist. Or a deplorable.

For four years in the interregnum from the Obama–Biden suck-fest, Donald Trump told America it didn’t suck and that we had a right not to suck. And for a good chunk of those four years, we didn’t. Then came a Chinese virus and the needless and pointless loss of our liberties, livelihoods, and quality of life, most particularly in places Democrats govern, and everything sucked again.

Doubly so once Black Lives Matter and Antifa, the paramilitary wings of the Party That Sucks, got to work on our cities on the basis of lies — that our police are out hunting down black men to murder.

I don’t disagree, but I don’t see a good way out either. Ok, two bad ways out: one would be a massive civil war with tens of millions of leftist casualties, a bloody purge of most of the government structures and the entire education system; the other would be to break up the nation into Red and Blue areas. Red would have all the food, all the people with productive skills, most of the opioid addicted trailer trash, and all the intolerant “religious extremists”.  Blue would have all the money and all the intolerant superior elites who are so life-smart they don’t know which end of a screwdriver to hold or even what one looks like, plus most of the welfare leeches and nearly all the uppities and sexual oddballs. There would be no God, and they’d quickly switch over to some crypto-currency to further inflate their artificial wealth, until the utilities break down and the food runs out. After that, bloody autophagia, perhaps literally. Zombie apocalypse.

Either way would totally suck, but in new, exciting, dynamic ways!

Without bothering to vote, WHO recommends Ivermectin only be used for covid clinical trials. Because there haven’t been enough clinical trials yet ( only 49 so far, involving >15,000 patients, covering usage from prophylactic to all stages of the illness, or because not enough have be run by white people? ) Or because patient health and survival can go to Hell; the only thing that matters is a fat profit margin for TPTB.

The suckageddon is strong in the medical elites too.

Mother Nature got her own April Fool’s joke in on us. It was 27° out this morning when I got up. Brrr.

Bowling Blogging !!

We won 5-2 in a position round night at Old Guys league. The team we played usually has 4 really strong bowlers, but R is still out with the Covid - 3 weeks now!! - so they brought back old Pete, who is on their roster but doesn’t bowl very often. And with the crazy weather we’ve been having, lane conditions were pretty strange, and we were on the end lanes, which are notorious for weirdness. I was using my most basic throw and working on getting my axis more vertical. The more vertical a side roll you can put on the ball, the more it will hook and the more dependably it will hook. If you rush through your release, odds are the ball will spin horizontally, which means almost no hook even though the ball will dig through the pins fairly well. It’s a spinner ball, but not the Asian kind that they use on their hot and dry lanes. So I threw a 140 in the first game, which we lost. I finally found the grove in game 2, and rolled a 203. Game 3 I made a 213, winding up with a reasonable 553 series. I gave the guys my little pep talk, all about being positive and paying attention to each other’s rolls, and being willing to make adjustments sooner than usual. Maybe it did some good, maybe I’m a hoser. D did better this week but still didn’t break a 400 series. I so want to coach him a bit. He doesn’t hardly swing his arm and his hand comes around the ball 180 or more degrees before his release. This means he throws the ball really really slow with a reverse roll on it that slows it down even more. Come on, he’s 85, so we make allowances, but maybe I could get him to try something different. The changes I got V to make a couple weeks ago have helped him a lot; he was making most of his right corner spares, and pulled a 200 in the last game. Actually, 3 of us went 200 or a bit over, while D threw a 130. We won anyway. Our 5-2 win will boost us to 3rd place, perhaps even 2nd place if the better of the two leading teams took at least 4.

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

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.
