[The Conspiracy Corner] The beginning of Saturday’s woven sky looking West.

|[“Yard sales”]. This time of year, the majority of people going to yard sales are snowbirds. They are bored and just want something to do. Most of them rent so they really don’t want to buy something they have to schlep back north. And if they do want something, they tend to be cheap, very cheap
[“When are line dancing classes”] Line dance classes are Monday & Wednesday at the Senior Center on Big Pine.
|[Computer Improvements] I was out of town when my laptop broke. I took an Uber to Best Buy, plunked down $1100, took another Uber to the hotel, turned it on, entered my Google and Microsoft passwords to their clouds, and all my files and settings were automatically uploaded to the new laptop! Wow, times sure have changed. It used to take me about a week to set up a new computer. Another wondrous improvement is with the new cloud version of Office 365. I entered the email address I wanted to set up and it automatically set it up. I entered all the other email addresses I wanted to use, and it automatically set them up too. Setting up email used to be such a technical chore that everyone hated.

|[Sex Ring] Hidden in plain sight; coming to a town near you? How Florida police snared nearly 300 — including Robert Kraft — at spas used for sex trafficking The investigation, which ensnared nearly 300 alleged suspected johns, including New England Patriots’ Robert Kraft, sparked a national conversation.

|[Restaurant Review] I had a long chat with the owner of China Garden. It turns out, their cook will take any standard menu item and prepare it according to your every wish. That includes even the main ingredient.
Line Dancing is at the BPK Sr Center every Monday & Wednesday. The Beginner Class is at 4 with other levels earlier. Classes are free. Yee, haw!
|[Fear of Being Rich] ] We quit playing the big lotteries, not so much because the odds are nuts, or that they might be fixed, but because what happens to people after they win big. It is not worth the fear and circumstances.

I disconnected my computer mouse the other day and scrubbed it clean. I forgot it was once white, not yellow!
|[“Clean energy”] I laugh at the stock holders of oil and coal who knock clean energy. They never knock water powered dams or deep well steam generator plants which are all owned by them, big oil, on their land. As for solar power, the Sun gives us more radiation in one day than the planet could use to make electricity for 100 years. Follow the money and watch us poison ourselves into history.
|[I’ve No More F**ks To Give] I want this song played at my funeral. Video
Car Show & Shine this Sunday March 17th 2019.
|[Hangovers] Anyone else been getting terrific hangovers or headaches from dinning out at some of the local beaneries lately? Could be from bad booze, bad ice, bad dish washing, bad food or bad AC filters. Whatever causes this kill the fun of Keys partying!
|[Global Warming] It frustrates me to no end how immature the people are becoming on global warming, the Left and Right politico agendas, and letting the media propaganda machine run the world today. People have become too lazy to think and analyze what is really going on. The N.W.O. and World Bank making changes to cull the useless eaters, and the tyrants who want to own and master it all, they do not have to be the richest or the most powerful, but the most influential to steer the crowds and control all. Wait until the junta turns off the electric, the water, the sewers, the food, and then watch the military industrial complex raise its ugly head again as it did to start WW2. Yes, they want another world war to play their sick chess games and clean out the riffraff. I’m glad I’m old enough and will not last to suffer when all hell breaks loose and this planet crashes back into the dark ages. The real danger is global poisoning!
|Not to brag, but I’m pretty good at not getting involved.
|[The Skye Blue Café Wall Illusion] This illusion, created by the artist Victoria Skye, was one of the top entries in the 2017 Best Illusion of the Year Contest. Believe it or not, the horizontal lines are all perfectly parallel. To prove this to yourself, just squint at the image or look at it from the side. Victoria Skye builds on the previous insights of the famous illusionists Richard Gregory and Akiyoshi Kitaoka, to show that or perception of rectilinear lines is a matter of opinion. You determine whether edges are parallel through a brain circuit that uses the lightness and darkness of edges to help establish the relative orientation of the lines. Presumably this is because your brain relies a lot on shadows to see where objects lie, and how they interact with the surfaces around them. So here, when Skye throws in a series of white/black diamonds at key transitions between surfaces, this causes havoc in the brain circuits, leading to misrepresentation—in perception—of the position and angles of the edges.
|[Green Deal] Greenpeace founder, Patrick Moore says that AOC’s Green Deal would be a disaster for all and lead to the end of civilization. Video
|[Pray For Whorehouse] What an interesting turn of events in Pahrump, Nevada. Diamond D’s brothel began construction on an expansion of their building to increase their ever-growing business. In response, the local Baptist Church started a campaign to block the business from expanding — with morning, afternoon, and evening prayer sessions at their church.
Work on Diamond D’s progressed right up until the week before the grand re-opening when lightning struck the whorehouse and burned it to the ground! After the brothel burned to the ground by the lightning strike, the church folks were rather smug in their outlook, bragging about “the power of prayer.”
But late last week ‘Big Jugs’ Jill Diamond, the owner/madam, sued the church, the preacher and the entire congregation on the grounds that the church “was ultimately responsible for the demise of her building and her business — either through direct or indirect divine actions or means.”
In its reply to the court, the church vehemently and vociferously denied any and all responsibility or any connection to the building’s demise. The crusty old judge read through the plaintiff’s complaint and the defendant’s reply, and at the opening hearing he commented, “I don’t know how the hell I’m going to decide this case, but it appears from the paperwork, that we now have a whorehouse owner who staunchly believes in the power of prayer…. and an entire church congregation that thinks it’s all bullshit.”

|[“Line dancing classes”] Oh joy, looky Ma, I’m going to buy me a Stetson and shit-kickin’ cowboy boots to look like I belong here with the rest o’ these people. Please, somebody cut BPL loose![?]

|[“Amazon Prime”] I love this subliminal advertising the CT sticks into our local blog. How much do they pay? Don’t forget, Amazon, Twitter (for twits), Facebook, and all the information hording sites are there for one reason, to get your data and sell you something and to control you.
