SNL Hillary skit…

leave a comment »

I haven’t watched Saturday Night Live in years,  but  this skit  of Hillary becoming a hermit in the woods is too amusing not to pass along.

Socialist food fails…

leave a comment »

What a surprise it is that a restaurant supposed to run on socialist,  collective principles is now  going out  of business,  even though it didn’t run on the principles it espoused and even though it apparently had interesting food.   Of course,  the owner  is nattering on about the principles nothaving been followed faithfully.   You’d think he would know better, being the owners of other businesses,  which presumably are for-profit.

Smiley sun…

leave a comment »

NASA has released a photo of the sun with active spots and plasma which look  like a smile.   There’s a scientific explanation for all the features,  but a smile will suffice for me.

Yuletide miracle?

leave a comment »

A man who lost his eyesight twenty years ago has  now regained  nearly all of it,  and doctors have no clue as to why.   I don’t know if Kevin Coughlin’s diet,  prayer,  and meditation are the reason,  but I wish him the best.   He is getting the most sonderful Christmas present,  isn’t he?

Chocolate lovers rejoice!

leave a comment »

If your favorite chocolate had only half as much sugar,  yet tasted the same,  would you be happy?   I’d do cartwheels,  and the Nestle company has found a way  to achieve  just that by altering the structure of the sugar.   My taste buds and I will enjoy every extra morsel in a little more than a year,  but we will be the final arbiters as to whether the promise of the claims is met.

You’ve seen Boston Dynamic’s Atlas humanoid robot before,  but they have now added a new algorithm which stabilizes it  to handle  rough terrain.

Truly American charities…

leave a comment »

Newsmax has put together  a list  of charities which perform in accordance with what we hicks in flyover country,  we deplorables,  will recognize as generally American cultural values.

I would not call it the definitive list,  and there are a couple I might have a small quibble with,  but it’s a good starting place for your charitable giving.

Dolly Parton steps up…

leave a comment »

Singer Dolly Parton is putting  her money  where her mouth  — and heart  — is by having her Dollywood Foundation establish a fund to provide $1,000 a month to the families in her area affected by the devastating fires in Tennessee.

Compare this to the big celebrities who make grand statements and do next to nothing.

If you aren’t aware of the fires in Sevier County, Tennessee,  this will give you an idea of the destruction.   Do note the one thing which survived the total loss of this home.

Here’s another  found treasure  which will astonish.

Carlson boosts ratings…

leave a comment »

I told you what a good fit Tucker Carlson was,  and  the ratings  prove my point.   If you haven’t watched and want to know why,  this segment with a Black Lives Matter activist should explain it nicely.
