turkey dinner wineThe vultures are here in great numbers. They appear to be about turkey-sized but a lot easier to shoot. Has anybody ever cooked one up? Yeah, I know they eat dead smelly stuff, but so do stone crabs and mutton snapper. One guy said they taste more like manatee than Key deer. He might actually know, but that doesn’t help me.

cortana22Microsoft 10’s new voice recognition feature called Cortana is a Siri killer because it is near artificial intelligence quality. Cortana “learns” from you. You can ask it follow up questions after your initial query. No one else can do that.

I do feel uncomfortable with them calling Cortana “her”. It is more accurate for those of us still trying to hold onto the English language to call Cortana “it”, but I digress. Also the spelling of Cortana is in my SpellCheck automatically, put there by one of the Microsoft updates no doubt. Video

The panther seen at the Cudjoe Transfer Station access road was brown, as is typical of Florida panthers.
In the early 1970s superstar Donovan performed at the Hollywood Bowl and it rained. He was so full of himself that he raised his arms (he used to dress like a guru too) to the skies and called for the rain to stop. It did! That was the talk of the town for a long time. He was riding high with at least ten hits under his robes at his peak. So with the poorest of timing Donovan declared that he would no longer use drugs. He didn’t and he never had a hit record again and faded into obscurity. Video

box knife22[“Conspiracy theorist”] It is refreshing to see that a few CT readers actually sought the truth about the 9/11 false flag attack/murder. The facts are out there and none of the people making the information available are getting rich by doing so. Nearly all of it is free, and you decide if its legit. Deciding that it is bogus without even reviewing the evidence is the true sign of a brainwashed puppet.
Naturally, a few people just dismissed the notion of any explanation other than the official conspiracy story that they heard on CNN. Hijacking planes full of people with only a box knife? Right. Flying another commercial airliner right into DC and the Pentagon after the Twin Towers were hit? Right. Squeezing a 140′ wide aluminum plane into a 16′ hole that pierced 3 very thick steel reinforced concrete walls of the Pentagon without leaving a wing or the 37′ tail behind, and without even breaking windows adjacent to the hole? Right. You just keep believing the official fairy tales. Keep freely surrendering all your American rights so that your government officials can keep you safe from bogey men by having TSA check everyone’s underwear for bombs. Not everyone who disagrees with official stories wears a tin foil hat (I once knew a schizophrenic who said tin foil hats work much better than pills. Keep that in mind. She was not always schizophrenic and you could be next!).

Sorry to hear FTR’s right wing out of commission for a while. Hope he makes fast recovery, and when he gets back, he starts slamming Republicans as much as he slams Democrats, because they both are responsible for the mess America is in, as are the people they voted into office. Saying it another way, maybe if FTR had been more flexible, maybe if he had been more ambidextrous, his right shoulder would not so stove up with arthritis and worn out. Maybe skiing naked, instead of watching other folks do it (the video FTR provided) would loosen us all up a bit.

For FTR, that in italics was the most important part of what I submitted. If he’s as tough as you say, he needs no protection from you. What you are doing by protecting the cheap shooters’ anonymity, is telling every kid who reads the Coconut Telegraph to do the same. Ongoing I deal with people who want me to jump on something that’s bugging them, but they don’t want their names on it. They wave their American flags, they go to church, they curse the establishment and politicians, but they don’t want any of the heat. One or two of them are the brains behind Dump the Pumps, you never see their names in public, they fear retaliation from their employer, FKAA or MC

free upgrade avis[Windows 10 Will Be a Free Upgrade for People Running Windows 8 and Windows 7] Price was not the reason so many people did not upgrade to Windows 8 or 8.1. Many Windows 7 users like that interface and do not like the Windows 8 or 8.1 interface. Those people, including myself will probably not upgrade to 10. I needed to purchase a new laptop and desktop this year and insisted on purchasing a Windows 7 machine. This year the word is that manufacturers will not be loading Windows 7 on their machines any more, so if you want a Windows 7 machine you have better purchase one while they last. After they are gone people will be switching to Linux. Sorry, Microsoft you screwed up with Windows 8 and 10 does not seem to reveal that you learned anything. Stop thinking that you can push people into what you think they want. Otherwise we will all be using Linux machines in the future.

If you are thinking about upgrading to Windows 8.1 or Windows 10 when it comes out, think again. If you have Windows XP, Vista (later editions) or Windows 7, keep them updated and backed up to a external hard drive and make Windows Repair discs and a Rebootable set of operating system discs. Then go to this site and open the Comment Section after the article and read each fully. Microsoft screwed up again with Windows 10 it seems. Link

[“Conspiracy Man”
] What if conspiracies are made up by corporations to sell more tin foil?
I would just like to add my condolences to FTR on his health problems. Who ever said that getting old was fun or called it the golden years? It is happening to all of us as time goes by. In my case it is my fault. I’m going blind, but I knew it was going to happen. When I was 10 or 11 years old Father O’Malley told me that I was going to go blind if I didn’t stop playing with myself. Now as I get closer to my 70’s it’s finally happening.

Etta James – I’d Rather Go Blind

[Sewers] There exists a “Final Programmatic Environmental Impact Statement” (PEIS) for the “Florida Keys Water Quality Improvements Program”. This was produced by the Army Corps of Engineers (ACOE) and South Florida Water Management District (SFWMD) in 2004 and was based on representation by FKAA and the County that the Wastewater Master Plan of 2000 would be followed and that vacuum sewers would predominate. Both are false premises in the Cudjoe Regional Wastewater System (CRWS). Other alternative systems to gravity collection were said to be under consideration, but an LPS system that did not simply pump septic tank effluent was not included as a possibility. Therefore, the currently designed CRWS project was never evaluated for environmental impact in even a cursory manner by environmental regulators. Evaluation at the Federal level is required by the National Environmental Protection Act (NEPA) for Federally funded projects such as the CRWS. We also know that the required project-specific evaluation was not done for the CRWS, but was done for Key Largo, Islamorada, Marathon. Not only have CRWS citizens been deceived, but the deceit has extended to the ACOE and SFWMD. Perhaps fortunately, Federal prison sentences are a possibility for the perpetrators of this fraud and crime against the environment.
cortana22[Windows 10 Preview Released yesterday] I just read the details about the new Microsoft Windows 10 operating system and got really scared. It seems to be good up front until you realize it is not an OS, but a service. What is a service? It is the cloud system where everything you do on a computer has to be online connected to their master servers through the cloud. This is just about what is happening now, with the Web, but you still have a chance to unplug the wire from the wall and be your own person. Wireless is the same as the wire except they are listening another way. This W10 and cloud stuff is 100% Big Brother. What is next Microsoftie Spy Pills with Windows 11 stuck up your port?
[Sewer Newbie] I’m interested if someone could point me in the right direction for information about the new sewage system. Currently I’m on septic, haven’t had problems with it.

[“Conspiracy Man tell us how the Pentagon plane crash was also planned”] What Pentagon plane crash? It’s quite evident that a 767 or any plane, ever crashed into the Pentagon. Where was the debris of the plane that hit the Pentagon? There wasn’t any. Not a single engine, wing, fuselage, seats, passengers, luggage or video evidence was produced. When the Florida flight instructors were interviewed, about the alleged hijackers flight performance, they said, “It’s impossible that these guys were able to maneuver these planes with precise skill that not even an experienced pilot wouldn’t be able to achieve! On top of, that these guys couldn’t even do a takeoff, solo or landing by themselves. Even more on a jetliner”  In another interview with several experienced pilots, they claimed, “that it’s virtually impossible to locate any destination or for that matter buildings, once you cut off communication with tower control.” Now, don’t forget the fact that 7 of these 19 alleged hijackers have come out on TV news and proved that they weren’t dead or hijackers, and do not have any idea how the U.S. intelligence agencies obtained their photos and accused them with false information.

Don’t also forget that on 9/11, Dick Cheney was in command of NORAD on 9/11 while running war games. ‘Stand down order’. “Of course the orders still stand, have you heard anything to the contrary?”. That’s why NORAD Command was confused because they thought 9/11 was part of the drill and couldn’t respond quickly to the event and Cheney had them standing down. What a coincidence huh? On September 10th, 2001. Rumsfeld reported $2.3 TRILLION missing from the Pentagon. ‘Dov Zakheim’ Pentagon Comptroller. Former VP of ‘Systems Planning Corporation’ (Flight Termination System). Signatore of PNAC document. The missing Trillion files were in the part of the Pentagon that had gotten hit. “Flight 93″ debris was spread out over many miles. Cheney admits to giving the order to shootdown 93. “shot down the plane over Pennsylvania” Rumsfeld, “nothing that you could distinguish that a plane had crashed there” ‘Chris Konicki. “Not a drop of blood” Coroner Wallace Miller. “there was no plane.” Mayor Ernie Stull.

The  FBI confiscated 84/85 Videos from the Pentagon. ‘Moussaoui trial’ revealed these videos. Released Pentagon Security Camera (FOIA) does not show a 757 and is clearly Missing a frame. ‘Sheraton Hotel’, “Double tree’, ‘Citgo” videos.

The evidence clearly shows (unlike the confiscated video) that the objects that hit the Pentagon and crashed in Pennsylvania had to be missiles. I’m not a “Conspiracy Theorist” I’m a “Truther”! Just like many of you, I believed that the 9/11 attacks were committed by Arab terrorists, but then I began to realize things that were questionable, and began to have doubts. As a skeptic, (unlike you), I began to do my own research. I’ve been researching the 9/11 facts for over 5 years now. I began to weigh the balance of doubt, and my conclusion is that 9/11 was a “False Flag Operation!” By committing myself to this research, I then realized that 9/11 clearly wasn’t the 1st False Flag operation conducted by our government. History of American False Flag attacks. ‘USS Liberty’, ‘Gulf of Tonkin’, ‘Operation Northwoods’, ‘OKC Bombing (Murrah Building)’, ‘1993 WTC attacks’. Project for the New American Century (PNAC) needed “a New Pearl Harbor”, “Rebuilding America’s Defenses”. 9/11 Achieved those goals.

In 1933, Adolph Hitler secretly ordered the “Reichstag” to be burned down, and he then blamed a Polish Communist National, who was tried and found guilty, and this gave Hitler the backing of the German people to invade Poland. Something Hitler wanted to do for a long time, but the German people held him back until he carried out his false flag event. Just like Nero burned down Rome and blamed it on the Christian sect, in which the people backed his decision to slaughter Christians. Well, 9/11 was the same situation in which the people backed the Bush administration into going into Iraq because Saddam was responsible, and had WMD’s, and at the same time declared open season on Muslims. So here’s your bedtime story, but I just don’t understand why you want to hear a bedtime story, when obviously you’re asleep even though you’re awake.

And to the other person who wrote on yesterdays post,  “Some people will believe anything if they look for it long enough. The best examples are ghosts & UFOs. How stupid are you? Your evidence would be laughable if I knew you did not actually believe such nonsense.” Too bad you allow the media to influence your thoughts and opinions.
