Titanic in color…

leave a comment »

Thomas Schmid,  of 3D History, has taken black and white images from the Titanic and  colorized them  to show people the full luxury of the doomed ship.   You’ll be surprised at how much difference the color makes.

Ambassador Haley rips Security Council…

leave a comment »

For anyone worried that former South Carolina Governor Nikki Haley wouldn’t be able to cope with the sewage pit which is the United Nations, she has  already blasted  the Security Council for its anti-Israel bias and for its abject failure to address the issues which are supposed to constitute its mission and purpose.   She obviously did her homework thoroughly and was not prepared to overlook the myriad of shortcomings at the international cesspool.

Trump wine boycott backfires…

leave a comment »

The Prince William County, Virginia, chapter of the National Organization for Women held a widely publicized boycott of Wegmans Food Markets to force the supermarket chain to stop carrying Trump wines.

I doubt NOW expected that  all but  one of the ten stores in the area would sell out of Trump wines in response.

Dangerous roads…

leave a comment »

I’ve driven on some pretty hairy roads in my time,  including some fire trails in Arizona, but I’m happy to say I’ve never set foot  on any  of these.

Al Jarreau, R.I.P.

leave a comment »

In case you don’t know,  Jarreau was  a noted jazz and rhythm and blues singer.   He gained more commercial appeal after writing and singing the lyrics for the hit 1980’s TV show “Moonlighting”,  but I enjoyed him primarily for his scat singing,  which done well is one of the finer points in jazz music.

Robert Leo Hulseman, R.I.P.

You don’t recognize the name,  but you have undoubtedly drunk from one of the red Solo cups he invented more than a few times,  so raise your own fresh cup  to the design savvy and marketing genius of this man.

Eugene Cernan,  the last astronaut to walk on the moon,  has died.   That leaves only six more living who have strolled on the moon.
