[Drug-fueled Murder Plot] The co-owner of the Marathon Boatyard, Dennis Zecca, the former commander of the Coast Guard Station in Islamorada was arrested after he hired a fake hit man to kill realtor Bruce Schmitt. Zecca found the hit man while trying to buy 10 kilos of cocaine.

[Big Box Store] County planners are limiting the size of the proposed retail space on Rockland Key. I wonder why? As it is now it is a no-man’s land anything would be an improvement. The bigger the space the more national retailers would come and Rockland Key is the perfect and only place for them. Rockland is the only key that doesn’t look like the Keys so it can’t be ruined. Target may be interested.

an_gauge_indicator[Running on Empty] I’ve been trying to figure the fuel efficiency and range of my boat so I let the tank empty to where the fuel gauge started flashing EMPTY. I loaded the boat with three 5 gallon cans of gas and set out to run the boat’s tank out of fuel. I drove 81 miles (that’s a lot of miles in a 21′ boat) around Big Pine Key, No Name Key, Bahia Honda, Big Spanish Channel, Hawks Channel, Harbor Channel, Bogie Channel and the sucker never ran out of gas. I finally gave up for the day, docked the boat, left the gas cans aboard and will wait until I’m refreshed and try again. I conclude that the only time you run out of gas is when you don’t want to.

[“If the guns had of been locked up the shooting would not have happened”] Another illogical approach to gun safety. What good is a self-defense firearm if it is locked up? “Excuse me, Mr. Burglar, can you wait until I unlock my gun safe and get my home defense weapon ready?”

An ion thruster produces small levels of thrust relative to chemical thrusters, but does so at higher specific impulse (or higher exhaust velocities), which means that an ion thruster has a fuel efficiency of 10-12 times greater than a chemical thruster. The higher the rocket’s specific impulse (fuel efficiency), the farther the spacecraft can go with a given amount of fuel. Given that an ion thruster produces small levels of thrust relative to chemical thrusters, it needs to operate in excess of 10,000 hours to slowly accelerate the spacecraft to speeds necessary to reach the asteroid belt or beyond.

rover27[Curiosity Rover] In late October, NASA’s robotic Curiosity rover stopped near a place dubbed Rocknest as it continues to explore Gale Crater on Mars. Rocknest is the group of stones seen near the top left of the above image — just to the left of Curiosity’s mast. Of particular interest was the unusually smooth patch of soil named Wind Drift seen to the left of Curiosity, which was likely created by the Martian wind blowing fine particles into Rocknest’s wake. Theabove image shows part of Mt.Sharp in the background to upper right, and, oddly, almost the entire rover itself, digitally reconstructed from 55 frames while digitally removing an extended arm. Curiosity scooped several sand samples from Wind Drift into its Chemistry and Mineralogy Experiment (CheMin) and the Sample Analysis at Mars (SAM) laboratory for a detailed analysis. Preliminary data from the soil indicates a small amount of one-carbon organic material the origin of which it presently unknown. Although the organic signal might be just contaminants from Earth, the exciting possibility that it could be from Mars itself will remain a focus of future exploration and research.

traps27[Howard Livingston] I had my boat out of the water getting some annual service and put her back in the water a couple days ago. It is a short cruise from the KOA boat ramp to my house and I could tell she (my boat) did not want this journey to end so quickly.  Being the caring captain I am, I just had to oblige and looked for a reason not to go back so soon. And then it hit me; I have not put my crab traps in the water yet. My friends Dave and Mark had helped me launch her and drive the trailer back, so a quick phone call informed all of the new game plan. Instead of meeting me at the dock to put the boat on the lift, I told them to get the traps ready to load on and let’s go out to sea!

Heading to pick up the traps I passed the house of Dr. Vaughn, who is the director of Mote Marine Laboratory, and as luck would have it, he was in his yard. I yelled and asked if he wanted to join us and without hesitation, he said “yes.” Our crew was growing. I keep my traps at our daughter’s house and as I arrived at the dock my grandson Michael was peering and waving at me from the house. I yelled up and asked if he wanted to go. Michael didn’t answer but came charging down the steps still in his pajamas and bath robe, grabbed his life jacket and jumped on the boat, I guess that was a yes. We loaded the traps and headed out to find the perfect spot where all the crabs might be. I will let you know in a week or so if any of the crabs agreed with our location.

On our return trip Dr. Vaughn asked Michael if he would like a tour of their laboratory and we all chimed in with an affirmative. What happed next was nothing short of amazing. Mote is at mile marker 24 just a stone’s throw from my house and Dr. Vaughn has been a friend for a long, long time. However, I had never taken the time to visit their facility. What they are doing is nothing short of astonishing. The coral reefs of the world are under a great deal of stress and the Florida Keys is not immune to that. Twenty five percent of all the worlds’ reefs have perished and that trend continues. Mote is working to help end that by replenishing our reefs. They are actually culturing and growing coral reefs in their lab and then transplanting them in the ocean. Their success rate is over 90%. They can grow in a very short amount of time what otherwise would take hundreds of years. This is one of the most impressive things I have ever seen. A large portion of Mote’s funding comes from a very simple program, their “Protect Our Reefs” license plates. These plates are available to all Florida drivers and $25 from each plate goes to support Mote’s reef programs. I can tell you what my new plates are going to be. For more information visit Link

toiletpaper27[Captain Doom and Gloom] A friend just flew in from the Midwest and was delayed for many hours due to the storms. That was not the problem. The problem was the rise in ticket prices if you wanted to get home for Xmas. What was a $320 fair in some cases, went up to $3000. That is price gouging if there was was.

…is religion more powerful than governments?

…do we have armies?

…are people trying to be all the same color?

…do we not have one language?

Opinions run rampant, imagine that! a poster takes those signing a petition to get rid of Mr. Morgan for his bullying ways of treating folks with a different view than his on his T.V. show proclaims these perpetrators are suffering from blindness caused by cataracts and should be treated for their malady, then the poster offers his own opinion on the U.S. constitution claiming that the second bill of rights is outdated and should no longer be relevant, those people are better known as folks believing that our constitution should be a “living constitution”,don’t know if the poster would agree with that definition or not, but his words bear this fact out, one must question why our constitution has survived intact as long as it has, it is now the longest living constitution in history. 

Opinions, opinions; their are perhaps as many opinions as their are stars in the sky. Trying to improve the most profound document ever produced by man with a myriad of differing opinions is surely an invitation to utter chaos, regardless of our ability on the world stage, everyone wants to get into the act.



Exclusive CT photo of this breaking story. “Mrs FTR called and said FTR is stuck in the chimney.”

As I try and read the hate filled diatribe that comes from Mr FTR I can only assume that he is just a Right fighter. He believes that he is correct and that the world is wrong. He issues statements that are false and when shown that they are he just dances away from them. The other day he commented about the Clinton gun laws and how the crime rate has gone down after they were changed.

The only problem is that President started the crime rate going down by adding police, equipment and training along with monies to implement the changes. It was President who began changing the gun laws, starting with the assault rife ban. FTR probably missed it while he was celebrating George W’s ending of the war (beginning a war is not the same as ending one). As a Right fighter he will never be bothered by facts, his mind was made up long, long age. He is what he is, a sad lonely man. He hasn’t figured out that if you keep going to the right all you will do is end up going in circles.

From the Right

[Wounded Knee] Deer Friends my apologies for being AWOL. On 12/11/12 I had surgery to replace a worn out knee.  The surgery was a rocking success.  Very little pain, and was walking without a walker nearly immediately after the surgery I developed a couple serious complications.  The complications required extending the hospital say for a few days. They released me Sunday, and as of today, both complications are basically unchanged. There’s been a trip to Fisherman’s Hospital, they kept me for about 10 hours then released me.  As of this writing both complication are still in full bloom. I’ll do my best to return as soon as possible.  Thanks for the notes and e-mails.


an the end b-wDecember 21st 2012 was not the end of the world as many had feared. This was another fear campaign just like all the others, by the negative forces that dominate our culture on a daily basis. The truth of the matter, is what these forces didn’t want us to realize! All ancient civilizations around the world have 12/21/12 as an important date for humanity, but not as a negative doomsday, but as the complete opposite. I wondered why all the shows on TV rarely spoke of the true significance of that date. I figured it out!

All ancient civilizations were aware of the repetitive 26,000 year cycle, which is divided into 4 ages. On 12/21/12 at 11:11 am, the Iron age ended and the Bronze age began. Many believe the age of Aquarius began this day, but actually, it won’t be for another 100 years for the age of Pisces to end. The Iron age is an age of complete negativity controlling the Ego of humanity. The Iron age is the age where man is lost to everything you’ve seen for the past 6,500 years. Religion, economics, war, government, the patriarch mentality, denial of consciousness and spirituality, etc. The age in which human beings have lost touch with true consciousness and true spirituality!

The Ancients were fully aware of this, as we today are not. But we will be! The Bronze age is spiraling in the positive direction this time. I’ll explain it to you! You have a circle. The circle is divided into 4 equal parts. The whole circumference is 26,000 years in total. Each divided part is a total of 6,500 years. At the top is the Golden age. 6,500 years later it ends, and the Silver age begins. 6,500 years later, Silver age ends, and the Bronze age begins. 6,500 years later the Bronze age ends and the Iron age begins. That’s the negative rotation the Ancients described. Now it’s the positive rotation in which the Iron age ended and the Bronze age began, ending 6,500 years from now and entering the Silver age and then the Golden age. Then it begins to again rotate negatively to Silver, Bronze then back to the Iron age.

We are now transcending into the positive mode of the rotation. The Bronze age, is an age where human beings will consciously and spiritually behave with more positivity than when we were in the Iron age. The Iron age is always where man behaves the most ugly and barbaric. The Iron age is the complete opposite of what humanity achieves during the Golden age. We will rapidly begin to see drastic change and acts on behalf of human beings towards  positive consciousness and spirituality. We will begin to realize the true power of thought! This is what Ancient civilizations all around the world believe, and believed it so much, that they left this information to be discovered, for us today. Yet, this was avoided and the lie was focused on.

Physics and it’s laws are now being debated by some of the greatest physicists today, because they believe that Quantum Physics is controlled by the power of thought. Not only through human beings, but, by all life and matter through out the entire universe. An experiment was done a few years back, in which hundreds of students in a leading University, were told to hold the positive thought, while focusing on the crime rate in D.C., which has the highest crime rate per ca-pita. These students were told to focus on the people living in the neighborhoods with the high crime rates, and to visualize the people in that area doing something productive other than criminal activity. The students did exactly as instructed in unison.

When the crime stats for D.C. came out 6 months later, it showed that the day following the experiment conducted by these professors and students, showed a drastic drop in crime, in the Washington D.C. area of 25% for 3 weeks straight. According to D.C. law enforcement, they’ve never seen such a significant percentage drop in crime within 25 years. The crime rate in D.C., if ever, dropped between 1 to 3%, but that was extremely rare. Usually the crime rate always got higher and higher. The experiment was a success! The scientists and students who participated in this experiment, decided to repeat the same experiment on Detroit, Los Angeles and Philadelphia. The results were absolutely incredible in each experiment taken.

We, as human beings have been led to believe that we need to rely on prayer and other forms of nonsense to achieve what they want us to believe are miracles. When in fact, we are the true miracle. The miracle lives in all of us! The telegraph has thousands of daily readers. If a hundred or so people were able to cause a positive reaction with just thought alone, imagine what all of us on the telegraph will be able to achieve if we get together and focus on something positive! The media bombards us on a daily basis with nothing but negativity and poison for our brains. This is why there is so much negativity around us.

I haven’t read the telegraph within a few days, but when I saw what Deer Ed posted, I realized that he too is tired of the negative nonsense. The answer to end negativity lies only in all of you. Ask yourselves this question. Compared to the years you’ve been around on this earth, how hard will you make it on yourselves to practice positive thoughts, on a daily basis for the entire year of 2013?

card_sugarplumdreamsIn a nap dream Christmas Eve, I dreamt I was talking with an older woman who might have been my 7th and 8th grade science teacher, Mrs. Bagley. She was to my right. Directly in front of me behind a desk was the young psychiatrist who’d had the unenviable task of trying to treat me during a killer dark night of the soul which rose up from out of a warm sea in a dream and ran from February 1997-June 1998.

The good head doctor, whom I liked even though he was killing me with his pills, had never heard of the dark night of the soul. When I left his care, I told him that he’d never had another patient like me, had he? He said that was true. I asked if he knew why? He said he didn’t know why. I said, because there wasn’t anything wrong with me but God messing with me.

In the dream, I told the elderly woman that God had turned me every which a way but loose so many times that I probably should just go ahead and say I’m crazy, since everyone already believes I’m crazy. The young psychiatrist burst into friendly laughter. The dream ended.

His wife was a psychiatrist, too. They were Methodists.

I told a mainland woman friend last night that Christmas in America is nothing about Christ. She agreed. She said she dreamt the night before that the sea was really angry, the waves were acting crazy. I said that was in keeping with an apocalyptic dream I’d had the night before.

My recollection is it was that kind of angry sea on which Jesus reportedly walked, and then invited Peter to join him there, and Peter took a step or two out of the boat and lost his nerve and started to sink, and Jesus chided Peter and he regained his nerve and joined Jesus standing on the waves in the angry sea. Then, the sea calmed, as I recal.

I imagine most Methodists today think, believe Jesus and Peter actually walked on that angry sea. I imagine most Christians today think, believe that.

After coming out of the killer dark night and leaving my psychiatrist, through an elder Christian intercessor I met a country minister who said he agreed: the Bible is an inside teaching and if you approach it as an external event you miss the whole point.

The sea is massive, it represents the emotions, the unconscious, spirit. It is very angry in there today, maybe even angrier than in Jesus’ time. I really don’t see the coming of the light making many Americans sing joyfully; but don’t put any stock in what I say, I’m crazy; and Jesus was born in Capricorn (late December) and not in Pisces (early March), and had nothing to do with fish or the sea therefore.

Several times on Christmas Eve, I told the angels that I hoped what I got for Christmas was that I didn’t wake up on Christmas Day. That it was over. I must have been a bad little boy this year, I’m still here the day after Christmas.
