Late Night Glass of Water

It’s the middle of the night. Woke up, tried to find a cool spot on the pillow, got up to pee and to get a drink of water.

I heard today that our old older friend and former co-worker Carole had passed away last Thursday. Aww Carole. So sad. She’d been battling lower abdominal cancer for years. Terrible, horrible illness. Round after round of surgeries until I swear she was hollow. Then chemo. For years. And before that a quadruple bypass. Through it all she kept her spirits up, or at least only communicated with us when she was in an up mood. She was the best. A mid-west farm girl who took no prisoners nor put up with any BS. Sharp as a tack. We had the best times at AT&T, from the buzzword bingo meetings to the fire eating lunches at the Indian and Thai restaurants. And all the shared stories of her kids, grand kids, her ex-husband, her current husband, Iowa farm life. Tales of adventure and travel. Horses. Hunting deer and rabbits with a .45. That inflammable pickup truck of hers. Her gardens. Hummingbirds. Trying to grow mushrooms in the basement. All the years she spent in community chorus. She loved that so much. Man, she packed in a full life. My God, what a great team the 6 of us were. Days gone by. We’ll always love you honey.

Clean sweep tonight at Greed League. A miracle. We took on the 3rd place team and simply out bowled them. Took all 7 points. I’d better check the tide charts and the phases of the moon; we don’t get this kind of syzygy too often. Firing on all cylinders, all of us. I threw a 629, which is about a 100 over series for me in this league. It should have been better, but I hit a really rough spot in the 3rd game - 4 opens in a row, ewww - and was “doomed” with a 149 on an open in the 8th. And we were 15 points down then too. So I asked my guys if they were hearing an aria from the obese woman. What?? Is the fat lady singing? Um, no? Good, then let’s get up and win this one. We’ve got 2 frames. Go. Bowl. Win!  And I actually put my money where my mouth is, and struck in the 9th and then X’d out in the 10th, pulling in 60 pins in 2 frames for a 209. And the other guys rallied too. We won that game by I think 16 pins. But 1 is enough to win, right? So a good night. And B, our globe trotting traveling salesman teammate, missed both earthquakes while in Chile last week, flew out via Panama, missed the earthquake there, landed in Ft. Worth and drove to St. Louis and missed the earthquakes in Oklahoma*. Pretty neat. He’s another guy who leads a full life, him and all his 400hp Audis, and can spin a great story out of daily events. So he’s back in Texas next week, so it will be just the 3 of us in Greed League, unless we can find a sub.

Hoping the weather will be nice enough to let me do an oil change tomorrow. I got a jug of synthetic and a nice Purolator filter at Walmart, both for under $22 total. Sweet deal. And I learned an odd thing ... synthetic motor oil is made from natural gas! How, what?? News to me. So is this new dexos oil standard conthing, and the new crop of ZERO weight oils for European cars?? 0W-20 oil?? Holy cats, what, do they have manufacturing tolerances down to the hundred thousandths now? 0.00005”? That’s barely a micron!

* naturally the ninnies are all aflutter in OK, claiming the earthquakes are caused by fracking. Gosh, if only it was that easy to cause earthquakes. We’d have split California off into the ocean by now. Funny how these green-panic types never look at history, or at a Geology textbook. Or a map. Duh.

Don’t See This Too Often

Drew does a UK post while Peiper is away

Not Ceremonial After All


A Queen’s Guard pointed his bayonet-tipped rifle at a member of the public outside Buckingham Palace when an argument erupted with a police officer, it has emerged.

The soldier left his post to intervene when the man refused to stop shouting at the officer outside the palace gates on Friday.

A photograph published in the Sun on Sunday shows the guard pointing his bayonet-fixed rifle towards the man’s face while standing next to the police officer.

A Metropolitan police spokesman said: “Police were made aware of a disturbance at the north-centre gate of Buckingham Palace at approximately 5.50pm on Friday April 4.

“Officers from Royalty Protection spoke to a man and he was given words of advice and there were no arrests.”

The Queen’s Guard are a contingents of soldiers charged with guarding the Palace but carry a largely ceremonial role.

The guard involved is not believed to be facing any action over the incident. An army spokesman said: “We are aware of an incident outside Buckingham Palace on Friday and while no one came to any harm and there were no arrests, we are very clear that the Metropolitan police lead on royal security arrangements including outside the palace itself.”

Buckingham Palace declined to comment.

Yeah, that’s a guy in the picture. No woman would wear pearl earrings with that blouse.

Blog Pulse Received From England !!

Lost Blogger Possibly Located


Got an email from Peiper. He and his wife are taking care of personal things they’ve got to do. Sometimes life takes up all your time. He will return when he can. Meanwhile, here’s a snip from the BMEWS Black Box (aka my email in-box) that proves his existence:

I read something interesting last week, or else heard it on radio. Someone referring to themselves as liberal and not at all in tune with the politically correct left, who they said had corrupted liberalism, were not at all democratic and were in fact, closer to Fascists and Communists.  He said there was no freedom of speech or differing ideas allowed, and that these liberals only interest was in smearing opposition and shutting down arguments.  I am paraphrasing here but that’s the nuts and bolts of it.

PS Loved the joke about the dog

Once upon a time, long ago and in a galaxy far away known as America (and also known as the Enlightenment in Europe) there was a thing called a Liberal. These days, if you really look into the history of things, you’ll find that this is now called a Classic Liberal. A Classic Liberal is actually a supporter of higher degrees of individual freedom. In their belief structure, this is done by limiting the powers of government. How limited? Protect us from the ChiComs coming in over the hill, secure the borders, pave the roads and plow the snow. Then shut up and get out of our way. That kind of limited government.

In other words, REAL liberals today, the good old fashioned kind, are people in the Tea Party. Come to think of it, only the real fringe elements of the Tea Party, the ones screaming for government so limited that it’s purely constitutional (and with the REAL understanding of what “regulate interstate commerce” means, thank you ever so much!), are truly Classic Liberals. Everyone else, everyone who feels “there ought to be a law” or “why doesn’t the government handle XYZ?” is somewhere to the Left of that.

The Marxists and oligopolians stole the term about 110 years ago, alas, to hide behind. Propaganda. Because if you keep at it, you CAN fool most of the people, most of the ... nearly forever.

A great 15 minute read ...

Joke about the dog???

Weighed Down By Life

another one gone

John Pinette, only 50

Chubby stand-up comedian and hapless carjacking victim from the final episode of Seinfeld, John Pinette has died. He was 50.

The Allegheny County Medical Examiner’s office says Pinette died at a Pittsburgh hotel on Saturday.

Pinette appeared in movies including The Punisher and had a trio of stand-up shows released on DVD but was perhaps best known as the portly carjacking victim whose plight lands the Seinfeld stars before a judge for failing to help under a Good Samaritan law.

Agent Nick Nuciforo says Pinette had been working on another stand-up project when he died.

The medical examiner’s office says Pinette’s death was from natural causes.

Actually, I’ll remember him as the hungry guy who said “nay nay”. His standup routines were killer. Sadly, I’m guessing his diet was too.

No, I don’t buy it


2 year old grabs gun, shoots and kills sister, 11

An 11-year-old girl was killed by a 2 year-old in Philadelphia Saturday after the children were left unsupervised with a gun in the room.

The children were playing in a bedroom when the toddler pointed the cocked handgun at his sister Jamara Stevens and fired, hitting her in the arm around 10 a.m. Saturday, police told NBC10 Philadelphia.

The bullet traveled through the girl chest and struck her heart, police said. She was taken to a hospital but was pronounced dead, the station reported. The little boy was found with a burn and traces of gun powder on his arm.

Tiffany Goldwire was in the home with her four children, ages 14, 11, 7 and 2, the station reported.

Police believe her boyfriend came over and brought the gun, which was left with the children in the room when she went to the bathroom, according to NBC10.
Prosecutors are investigating to determine if any charges will be filed.

The shooting occurred in the city’s Mantua section.

NBC Philadelphia reports at some point the kids located a gun left on top of the refrigerator by Goldwire’s boyfriend earlier that morning. 11-year-old Jamara Stevens is said to have removed the gun from the refrigerator. While playing, her 2-year-old brother cocked the .357 caliber handgun [with an 8” barrel!] before it discharged, striking Stevens in the arm.  Authorities say the bullet traveled through the girls chest before hitting her heart. A 14-year-old and 7-year-old were also present.
The surviving children and Goldwire were taken to police headquarters, where the mother was questioned for nearly five hours, according to reports.

After the family members were interviewed, investigators swiped them for evidence.

Sources tell NBC10 authorities determined the 2-year-old boy pulled the trigger because his arm had traces of gun powder and a burn from the blast.

Hey, I own a .357 with a 6” barrel. This is a BIG heavy pistol, more than 3 lb when loaded, and one with an 8” barrel would weigh even more. No 2 year old could cock the thing, and I doubt many 2 year olds could even lift it, much less point it or pull the trigger properly. Somebody was playing ghetto selfie or some such, putting a cocked and loaded weapon in a toddler’s hands. And then helping them hold and point it.

I don’t even have to call BS on this one. It’s pure and shining. But the baby will take the rap, and the cops will sign off and move on to more important things. Black children killing their brothers and sisters? New black boyfriends getting rid of some other dude’s kids? Doesn’t matter. Just another day. Nobody cares, not even them. Very Sad.

End of an Era

Mikey Rooney, 93


Entertainment legend Mickey Rooney, who bounced on stage before he was two and rarely left the spotlight for the next nine decades, first winning fame as the teenage Andy Hardy and then going on to appear in over 100 films, along with stints on television and in the theater, died Sunday at the age of 93.
Rooney was the consummate performer. “I’ve always enjoyed the lights of the theater,” he wrote in his autobiography “Life is Too Short.” “No wonder that even now, when I open a refrigerator door, I feel like performing.”

Along the way, the diminutive Rooney also made headlines for marrying eight wives, including sultry actress Ava Gardner. “Always get married early in the morning,” he once quipped. “That way, if it doesn’t work out, you haven’t wasted a whole day.”

But when he died, Rooney had been married for 35 years to his last wife, Jan Chamberlin, who survives him. He also is survived by eight children – a ninth died in 2006.

Rooney was the last surviving big male star from the 1930s and one of the very few actors left who had gone from silent movies to 21st century films.
Born Joseph Yule Jr. on September 23, 1920 to vaudeville actors, Rooney crawled onstage at 14 months, a little harmonica around his neck, and his father scooped him up and introduced him to the audience as Sonny Yule. By 17 months he was part of his parents’ routine in a specially tailored tux.

By 14, he had changed his name to Mickey Rooney and signed with MGM Studios; three years later he landed the role of Andy Hardy in the 14-film series that brought him fame and an abiding friendship with Judy Garland.
“I don’t regret anything I’ve ever done,” he once said. “I only wish I could have done more.”

More Focused Today

Ok, Saturday. Get things done day.

Having a late breakfast, early brunch. A bit cool and wet for yard work, but a good day to do laundry. And taxes. Eww Ick!!

Had a nice time at bowling last night, hanging with the fun couple on the other team. Nice time, and we won all 7. That puts us solidly in about 4th place on a 15 team league. Deep into the “big money” zone. hahaha, as if.

Ok, guess I can manage a quick look at the news, just to see if anything major is rearing its head ...

Crivens. It’s all sickening. I think I’ll go shopping.

Cry My Beloved Country

Hardly a citizen protested the scene
When The First was shot dead in April Fourteen

(with apologies to Longfellow)

Mourning The First Amendment

Mozilla CEO Brendan Eich forced to resign for supporting traditional marriage laws

Mozilla CEO Brendan Eich resigned under pressure after gay rights activists demanded that he step down or recant his support of traditional marriage laws.

Eich donated $1,000 to support Proposition 8, the California ballot initiative that amended the state’s constitution to define marriage as between one man and one woman.

“I don’t want to talk about my personal beliefs because I kept them out of Mozilla all these 15 years we’ve been going,” Eich told The Guardian. “I don’t believe they’re relevant.”

That wasn’t an option. “CEO Brendan Eich should make an unequivocal statement of support for marriage equality,” a Credoaction petition signed by almost 75,000 people said, per The Inquirer. “If he cannot, he should resign. And if he will not, the board should fire him immediately.”

When asked if his beliefs about marriage should constitute a firing offense the way racism or sexism does, Eich argued that these religious beliefs — and beliefs popular as of 2008 — should not be used as a basis for dismissal.

“I don’t believe that’s true, on the basis of what’s permissible to support or vote on in 2008,” he told CNET. “It’s still permissible. Beliefs that are protected, that include political and religious speech, are generally not something that can be held against even a CEO. I understand there are people who disagree with me on this one.”

On Thursday, Mozilla announced that he had resigned. “Mozilla prides itself on being held to a different standard and, this past week, we didn’t live up to it,” executive chairwoman Mitchell Baker wrote. “We know why people are hurt and angry, and they are right: it’s because we haven’t stayed true to ourselves. We didn’t act like you’d expect Mozilla to act. We didn’t move fast enough to engage with people once the controversy started. We’re sorry. We must do better.”

The guy who invented javascript. One of the shining stars of Silicon Valley. CEO of a major software house that makes a fortune from giving away their best product for free.

Given the boot - the jackboot, so to speak, although this one I’m sure was in the very latest fashion - not by the stockholders, not because he failed in his job, not because he cost the company sales. But because the Gaystapo riled up their own mob and went out on a witch hunt. And burned this guy for legally expressing his political beliefs EIGHT YEARS AGO in support of a completely legal manner, by sending in a donation for this Proposition 8 thing in California. An act that passed overwhelmingly in the state, garnering millions and millions of supporters.


Hey, remember “we’re here, we’re queer, get used to it”? Remember how you were browbeaten for 2 years to be tolerant, to be accepting? And then, to not have an opinion, to not feel you deserved to have an opinion, and then to feel guilty if your opinion didn’t follow that of the MSM driven herd?

Well now, the boot is on the other foot ain’t it? And it’s gonna kick you right in the fork.

AND DAMMMIT, I HAVE TO LEAVE RIGHT NOW. I’ve been festering and cogitating on this one all day. RCOB, depression, analysis ... all of it. Hey, imagine you go in to the office Monday and there’s a questionaire. 50 issues, check off whether you’re for them or against them. The people who don’t line up with management’s current opinion get fired. Or perhaps their careers just kind of dead end.

GAK, I’m so pissed off at this I still can’t think straight. Holy shit. And 4/9 of the Supremes came out the other day with their opinion that they felt freedom of speech was a collective right, almost solely for political discourse?? WTH inside out world am I living in?

From The Dustbin Of History

Some very old jokes, one obviously from England, from way back in the day.


A duck walks into a pub and orders a pint of beer and a ham sandwich.

The barman looks at him and says, “Hang on! You’re a duck.”

“I see your eyes are working,” replies the duck.

“And you can talk!” exclaims the barman.

“I see your ears are working, too,” says the duck. “Now if you don’t mind, can I have my beer and my sandwich please?”

“Certainly, sorry about that,” says the barman as he pulls the duck’s pint.  “It’s just we don’t get many ducks in this pub. What are you doing round this way?”

“I’m working on the building site across the road,” explains the duck. “I’m a plasterer.”

The flabbergasted barman cannot believe the duck and wants to learn more, but takes the hint when the duck pulls out a newspaper from his bag and proceeds to read it.

So, the duck reads his paper, drinks his beer, eats his sandwich, bids the barman good day and leaves.

The same thing happens for two weeks.

Then one day the circus comes to town.

The ringmaster comes into the pub for a pint and the barman says to him “You’re with the circus, aren’t you? Well, I know this duck that could be just brilliant in your circus. He talks, drinks beer, eats sandwiches, reads the newspaper and everything!”

“Sounds marvelous,” says the ringmaster, handing over his business card. “Get him to give me a call.”

So the next day when the duck comes into the pub the barman says, “Hey Mr. Duck, I reckon I can line you up with a top job, paying really good money.”

“I’m always looking for the next job,” says the duck. “Where is it?”

“At the circus,” says the barman.

“The circus?” repeats the duck.

“That’s right,” replies the barman.

“The circus?” the duck asks again. “That place with the big tent?”

“Yeah,” the barman replies.

“With all the animals who live in cages, and performers who live in caravans?” says the duck.

“Of course,” the barman replies.

“And the tent has canvas sides and a big canvas roof with a hole in the middle?” persists the duck.

“That’s right!” says the barman.

The duck shakes his head in amazement, and says

“What on earth would they want with a plasterer??!”

Freedom In The Sawdust


What is this thing?

It’s a homemade, custom sized, plywood lower receiver for an AR-15. No permits, no licenses, no serial numbers. No casting, no machining. Not even very much metal. Just precise measurements, very careful assembly, and lots of sanding. And some epoxy. Oh, and quality hardwood furniture grade plywood. And it’s going to work. As a pistol.

Follow the progress over at Summer Patriot / Winter Soldier ... John Jay is also hard at work on another wildcat cartridge, this time a .375 shorty.

Still Alive, Still Kickin’

One more of those old time rock ‘n roll bands that’s still together, sort of, that you figured broke up ages ago. The Guess Who ... in my opinion, just about the definitive sound of the 60s and early 70s ... still churning it out in the 21st Century.

Here’s 14 minutes of live show. No Sugar Tonight/New Mother Nature --> Albert Flasher --> Hand Me Down World --> Bus Rider

I was just going to post NST/NMN, which is simply the grooviest single tune with double lyrics ever, but this is better. I’d forgotten what a rocker Bus Rider was, which is a relatively new Guess Who tune from 2000, and now that I’m older I can see how it might have roots in some older tunes from the 50s. Maybe. It still rocks either way.

Grab the evenin’ paper and sit down in your chair
Grab yourself a toupee, cause you’re losin’ your hair
Doesn’t matter what you do you’ve nothin’ to lose
I’m so awful goddamn glad I’m not in your shoes
Bus rider.


I got to keep a-movin get my hat off the rack
I gotta boogie woogie like a knife’s in my back
So be my guest, you got nothin’ to lose
Won’t cha let me take you on a sea cruise?
Sea Cruise

Problem is, today’s band includes exactly nobody who was in the group in the early years. Before Bachman-Turner Overdrive went their own way. Or even anybody from the middle years, like the 2003 SARS concert in front of half a million fans. So are they still the Guess Who?, or are they really the Who Are You Kidding?

At any rate, the clip above is from 2000, when the band was Randy Bachman, Burton Cummings, Jim Kale, Garry Peterson (from 1968) and Don McDougall (from 1972), which is authentic enough. Thanks, Wiki!

A Week To Go:

Now That Spring Is Finally Here, “Winter Is Coming” Once Again

Best damn non-spoiler spoiler for HBO’s Game of Thrones ... this season’s endlessly longed for, LOUSY SHORT TEN EPISODE SEASON starts next week. Hey, they spend millions on the sets, boobs, film it in locations all over the world, costume up a cast of thousands, boobs, and build a plot that’s so involved and twisted it would make a Minotaur dizzy. Plus boobs. So is it any wonder they can only afford 10 episodes a year? Oh, and boobs.

This clip is pretty funny, but real fans of both show and book can name at least a third of those other extra characters. Mostly. Did I mention the boobs?

R + L = J ... perhaps. So will then J + D = the true Child of Light? Or would we be right back to an Ep 1 kind of incest? Because you know it’s coming ... even with what happened at the end of Book 5. And they’d be perfect together, Ice and Fire. Duh. After all, “What is dead may never die”, right?

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.
