That's ok, BariJerry; I certainly won't dictate what anyone should like. I just toss them out there, usually because it's what I'm listening to at the time, and maybe it will click with someone. If it doesn't that's fine, but thanks for at least giving it a listen.

It's got this really improvisational core which is the heart of jazz.

Manuel Transmission

Don’t remember whether I posted about it from a couple weeks ago, but I rented a brand new E300 Merc for my Front Range excursion. Normally consider Mercs as frumpy from the days when they were the Checker Cab of Yurrup. Anyway, the new beast was extraordinary. Ran from 85-105 mph for about 250 miles. Never a hint of any mediocre behavior. My only bitch was the OL curse of stupid controls of all the dash features. My DIL has a recent Merc SUV, so she could give me a clue of the stoopid whizzing knob functions, although I mostly ignored all that given my earnest desire for speed. Overall mileage for the speedy trip was 25 mpg.

Car-wise, it's primary purpose is efficient and inexpensive transportation. My wheels are a 2006 Toyota Matrix I named Red Pill. Red Pill has 162,000 miles and is going strong. I've had it to the dealer twice; once for brake work at 142,000 miles and then again to replace the ECU and air bag (recall).

My most favoritest car was my '89 Honda CR-X which was totaled in a freak accident in '93.

All 6 cars I've owned in this lifetime have been manual transmissions (Hey, MT, is your bird back from the paint shop?), the last three brand new.

Lara Logan is on Fox's Levin show.

As someone on here mentioned a few days ago, she is a 'hot mess'.

Posted by: bubarooni | April 13, 2019 at 07:26 PM

This is how far behind I am.

I was always suspicious of CBS's quick apology for the 60 Minutes segment Lara Logan did on Benghazi. The show aired on October 27, 2012. On November 8th CBS apologized eventually removing the show from its archives and sending Logan off on a leave of absence. Media matters was given credit for debunking the story.

I think CBS staged the whole thing, allowing Logan to produce the show, all the while knowing they would torpedo it in the end. The CBS apology and repudiation of its own work would put an end to discussions of Obama's and Clinton's responsibility for the deaths of four Americans. The media could then just put all that stuff in the rear view mirror and never look back.

David Rhodes, brother of Obama's close advisor Ben Rhodes, was president of CBS News at the time. So I suspect CBS News planned on the retraction and apology while the 60 Minutes segment was still in production, and I suspect the White House was in on it.

I'd like to be able to contact Lara Logan and ask her if she thought that might be true. I tried a message to an old Facebook page of hers, but I didn't get a response. Really didn't expect one.

hoyden

MM, that's an oldie and goodie I found a long time ago. I was searching for schadenboner and asking for a friend if girls can have them, and it was there in the collection of images. It fit right in with Clarice's Pieces.

clarice

Good morning, JOM!! And thanks.

hoyden

From MM's WE link,

During the 2016 election, WikiLeaks hacked into email accounts belonging to Democratic National Committee staffers and Clinton’s campaign chairman, John Podesta, releasing thousands of embarrassing and unflattering electronic communications.

Isn't that opinion presented as fact? Unfortunately Seth Rich is unavailable for comment.

hoyden

Thank you, Clarice, for this week's Pieces.

The Whitr House put up a thread about healthcare and Obamacare:

https://twitter.com/WhiteHouse/status/1116364492013752321

The responses are full of people who think Medicare for All is a swell idea. They have no idea what it means, no idea how insurance companies function, no idea what the National Health Service in Britain is really like. They are ignoramuses.

I was listening to Dan Bongino's podcast and he said the democrats keep saying that private treatment is allowed. However, you are NOT allowed to do so for "emergency treatment." So, if you want to pay for your own nose job or face lift, no problem.
If you need heart surgery or cancer surgery, you have to wait in line.

I assume the exceptions will be for those who are politically connected to the democrats.

MM-the healthcare company I was gc at had an english sub for people wanting to get mris, ct scanning, and ultrasound as private pay to gauge the seriousness of what ailed them and bypass nhs.

IIRC, the better jobs in the uk come with access to non-nhs providers. It was also mentioned in some of the pd james mystery novels where characters had access to non-nhs healthcare.

Storm at three???
No way are they going to make it til three. Who's reading their radar???
(It's been such a gift to us IRT to taking the boats out, esp sailing. Though we've made some boo boos--had the scariest trip home of my life two summers ago from my cousin's place three miles across the lake. Thank goodness for the island! I did not want to die by electrocution.)

The "yellow rain" is going to be there by noon. One at the latest.
And there is plenty of red in with all the yellow (the colors on my radar app).

What do they stop play for? Who makes that call?

How do they evacuate all the fans when that happens?

amom,

They will stop for lightning or a tornado. Will not halt play for rain only. But that storm coming is not rain only and the winds are already up. The leaders are on 4 & 5 now. Pretty much on time for a 4 hour round which should finish between 1 and 1:30 pm.

They will stop play around one-ish. The rain is moving quickly.

If there is a lightning strike w/in 10 miles the warning horn will sound automatically. At least, that is how the thing works at our club. Mandatory 30 minute pause after the last strike.

The daughter's HS state championships were played at Reynold's Plantation in a driving rain storm. They got 3 inches that day. I don't think ANG will allow the course to be abused like that one was with that idiocy. If the rain starts pooling, they will stop play before the lightning detector signals, IMO.

If the Fed had done its job properly, which it has not, the Stock Market would have been up 5000 to 10,000 additional points, and GDP would have been well over 4% instead of 3%...with almost no inflation. Quantitative tightening was a killer, should have done the exact opposite!

Re: course abuse---would they call it to get the people off the course before they had to walk on rain soaked grass???

I live about 2 1/2 hours from August and we currently have moderate to heavy rain with lightning and thunder. (Emma is under the bed!)

Clarice - what a great round up this morning! It was so good I read it twice, then starting sending out links.

Missing church on Palm Sunday as I recover, but I also remember when it was a bigger deal than today. Do they still hand out little palm branches to the children?

Atlanta radar shows the rain in Macon/Milledgeville now, less than 100 miles from ANG. No way it makes it to 3 pm. The embedded red line of storms is breaking up as it travels across the metro area, but storms tend to reform as they travel across lake country.

Jack is Back!

Well, Steph, you know Georgia better than I do. All I am relying on is the Weather Channel's radar for Augusta, that I linked above. I hit the future button and it keeps showing the storm getting there between 2:30 and 3:00 but then that channel has been wrong before, like our hurricane Michael.

They really are disgusting. And now New York and New Jersey are pushing physician assisted suicide. Let's start with Cuomo.
