CH:
I will meet you halfway downtown and you can bring any food you don’t want.
We can donate it to the hunger center or I will see if my boys want it.
They will eat anything.
Keep me posted on events around town you will attend.
I might meet you in passing
Going on April 19th to Severance Hall to hear Dvorak’s New World symphony for my husband’s birthday.

I wonder if they tested the England and Wales Rugby teams before today’s 6 Nations match because there is a whole lot of touching going on.

Re ZH, speaking as one who for a time placed a moratorium on linking anything from there, I find it useful if I put a stout filter on.
The Tyler Durdens are several different people and they aggregate a lot of stuff I wouldn't see otherwise. Some of it is commie crazy, some of it is paleo-con crazy, some Russkie disinformation but some of it is very good, both the political and the economic.
Anytime you mine you end up with a lot more tailings than you do nuggets.

I wonder how much she had to pay the Mad Man who came up with that.

Solar noon. When we first started spending our summers out here on the rock over 25 yrs ago I rediscovered an astronomy/navigation principle that I doubt 1:100k people have a clue about. Sitting on our front deck looking East at lunchtime, I started wondering whether the house was precisely square with the world. We happen to be right on the 123rd Meridian so that (head math) works out to be exactly 8 hrs and 12 minutes behind Greenwich time. So, with DST I waited to see the sun cast a shadow across the deck at 1:12 pm. There was a little sliver of a shadow, so I calculated that angle. Flash forward to several other attempts at checking that around the year and I started getting quite different answers. So I fired up my recently acquired theodolite (with military base circle!) and refined my observations down to a few seconds accuracy. Whaa??? The answers were all over the map.

Voila! I discovered the Analemma curve. Ok, why did I drag you through all that? To remind you that all those years ago when you dabbled with the globe down in the school library and probably wondered what that funny figure 8 curve they put in the South Pacific was all about. That’s the Analemma curve. And it shows that Solar Noon swings +/- about 20 minutes throughout the year.

The small gift that it brings us in the Northern hemisphere is that starting about the winter solstice as the days start to get imperceptibly longer, all the extra daylight is added to the evening. Small favors in the north country where we get down to about 8 hrs of daylight.

I noticed that looking at the sunrise and setting times.

Driving Teddy to various parks in the late afternoon/early evening is a good way to tell just how far the sun moves related to the tilt of the earth north and south. Right now I'm looking almost directly into it when driving west as it's setting.

POTUS is funny.

"While speaking to the press at the White House on Friday morning, Trump briefly touched on the topic of Elizabeth Warren’s shocking exit from the 2020 Democratic presidential race and dismissed the notion that her failure to clinch the nomination had anything to do with her gender. “I think lack of talent was her problem. She had a tremendous lack of talent,” the president explained. “She was a good debater, she destroyed Mike Bloomberg very quickly like it was nothing, it was easy for her. But people don’t like her."

Kute Korner Krack Dealers: They’re Baaaaaaack!

Who let them out? Why are they everywhere? On the corners, by the entrances to supermarkets, at the crossings, and all over the place. They swoop into the neighborhood in massive SUVs driven by classic MILFs. They pull in, tumble out giggling, and yank their card tables and their boxes of contraband from the back. Then they set up their offerings in stacks, and slap crude handmade signs with a heavy helping of glitter on the tables. Then they don their gang colors and get to work on you.

They are the most ruthless retail agents known to man. They are virtually irresistible in their peddling of their wares. They do it with cutting edge cute, and they have no scruples concerning your desperate attempt to diet away the winter flab.

They are the Girl Scouts and no matter how I try I cannot avoid them...

Remember how everyone claimed Truman was a straight talker as he inflicted his daughter's horrible singing on the country like Ted Mack running The Gong Show? The Golden Scalpweasel could blow that henpecked hack out of the water.

Just a damn minute, CH--I was a kid, and loved Truman for threatening to punch Hume in the nose.
And while we're at it, may I say your affection for Teddy belies your screen name?

Captain Hate

Marie Antoinette was unfairly maligned by the predecessors to our unfree presstitutes, the pamphleteer vermin; so it's appropriate that our contemporary dumbasses make the comparison and continue to reveal their lack of understanding of history.

Good afternoon! Jane,did you hear about the shooting on I-75 southbound in Northport in the early hours this morning? The exits between Sumter Blvd. and Kings Highway just reopened. Someone was shot and killed driving along that stretch of I-75. Yikes! If it was random or road rage or whatever,very scary.

Sorry, not sorry: Hillary Clinton retracts apology for using private email server, breaking gov't rules

"As I look back at it now, even though it was allowed, I should have used two accounts. That was a mistake. I'm sorry about that. I take responsibility," she told ABC News in Sept. 2015.

However, Clinton now admits she regrets offering the apology.

In a new Hulu documentary about her life that released Friday, Clinton said she regret the apology because it failed to quiet critics and hurt her 2016 presidential campaign.

"We'll just say what you did was a mistake. It was dumb. It's over. And that will end it. I wasn't convinced of that. But I understood the frustration of my campaign," Clinton explained. "So against my better judgment, I said, 'OK, fine.'"

"It turned out to be a mistake because look at all the oxygen it was sucking out of my campaign. But it didn't end it," she continued. "It didn't end it at all. And it never ended, it never ended."

Gee, why are these people all of a sudden in the news?

Truman was a machine hack who got elevated when Henry Wallace went too far commie for even Saint Delano. He wouldn't have to had re integrate the military but for Woodrow Wilson's racism, about which public schools don't teach.

Brandi Carlisle is not someone I would go out of my way to listen to, Grammys or no, but when she teamed up with these gals, pretty impressive.

So somebody could teach Joe the Wuhan Shuffle and he'd get it quick. The question is when the opportunity to perform the Wuhan Shuffle came up on stage an hour later, could Joe remember it?

I don't think so.

Barbara martin

She was the Pete Best of the Supremes--she left the group early on, before any of their big hits. Ballard, Mary Wilson, and Diana Ross were the group.

Mary Wilson's still alive and Florence Ballard died a long time ago (Detroicided? I don't think Ross liked her).

Ballard maybe never got over being shoved to a supporting role behind Diana Ross (apparently she was a tremendous singer in her own right), became an alcoholic, and was fired in '67, probably drank herself to death in her 30s (though officially a heart attack).

Extraneus,

This is her apo!ogy? "I did it. I broke the silly law — even though I could have gotten away with it because who cares. What was really, really wrong was the big fuss those deplorables made about it. I mean — it hurt MY CAMPAIGN! So what if the leader of every European country, China, Putin, the Taliban, Ghadaffi and their intelligence services were reading documents restricted to eyes only at the highest level of our government. The air was sucked out of MY CAMPAIGN! MY INEVITABLE PRESIDENCY!!!"

Who is pushing the BS story of Biden’s cognitive decline?

That is no "BS story"--it's an indisputable fact.
He is absolutely, unquestionably at a MINIMUM cognitively impaired.

I suspect he is demented, but I haven't seen what happens when you ask him to draw a clock face showing 2:40, or give him five objects to remember, then five minutes later, ask him to give them back to you.
But I would not be surprised in the least if he can't do either.

On page 221, Biden recalls his nomination for the Nobel Peace Prize 2009.

Further on, on pages 330-334 he shares with the readers his recipe for no-raise biscuits that won him an honorable mention in the 1978 Betty Crocker Bake-Off, and further on in the book he recounted his induction to the United Kingdom’s Politician Hall of Fame.

My wife tells me it takes five pairs of gloves to follow proper mask protocol at work. Not the cheap masks, whatever the designation is for the kind that can exclude stuff like Coronavirus and TB. In one way I wish I had kept my mask from the O2 delivery job I had. On the other hand I lied to the dude doing the mask fitting because I was about to have a panic attack with the hood over my head.

@SJimons

Panic buying is a symptom of a dysfunctional society diseased with individualism

Isn't Joe Lockhart a Clintonista? I'd say by feigning a Biden defense he's trying to keep the issue front and center, as will other Dems angling for a position with the Hillary campaign and presidency.

Republicans shouldn't push this until after the convention.

peter

jimmyk @ 4:19 and cap'n @ 4:19--I once wasted several precious hours of my life reading a book written by a Supremes roady about Flo Ballard and how badly Diana Ross treated her. At Flo's funeral, they played "Some Day We'll be Together" which was really an insult because Flo wasn't even on that record.

I don’t understand the run on toilet paper.
