[Immigrants] The problem is our nation’s, but only the southwestern states suffer. The best idea in a long time is to bus them to America’s top resorts. Send them to Martha’s Vineyard, Hilton Head, Telluride, Mount Snow, Aspen, etc. That’s where the rich, educated and powerful people are, and the rich people will do something about immigration if it’s in their face and interfering with their pleasure. Plus, as an immigrant, I’d rather be stuck in a beautiful resort than plopped down somewhere in Detroit.


I told my wife I wanted to be cremated. She made me an appointment for Thursday.

[Philanthropy] Patagonia’s $3 billion now belongs to the climate change fight. ‘Earth is now our only shareholder.’ Yvon Chouinard, the “reluctant billionaire” and owner of outdoor apparel company Patagonia, as well as his spouse and two adult children have given away their ownership in the company.

In spite of all the evil attempts and law suits of politicians to keep healthcare from citizens, almost all Americans now have Obamacare or private insurance. Only 8% of Americans are not covered.
[London] It was a funeral fit for a Queen.
[Always On Display] Apple’s new phone allows you to keep the display turned on. You can set it down and see notifications without touching it. Abouit time. Have you ever tried to follow an online recipe and have the phone turn off every minute.
[Movies] How come the characters never wipe or wash-off the blood on their face?


When slicing bagels in half, put your finger trough the stabilization hole to keep it steady then cut.

[“Few people sent in comments”] Have no fear, you are doing great! To prove my point go to the Full Menu page and look at 1st one (advertising Information) 60,000 ppl per month. Then look at the line that reads “60 people per month” You need to change 60 to 60,000. Good luck buddy! (Editor: Again, readers prove they are smarter than me. Thanks, kind reader, I changed it.)

[Young Remote Control] Rare photo of a remote control from the 1970’s. I wasn’t just the remote controller but I was the clear reception engineer adjusting the aluminum foil on the rabbit ears.

My wife tells me she’s off for a “blow and tease”, which I understood to be haircut and style. Until her truck was parked down the road at my neighbor widower’s house for 3 hours.


[Batteries] The best electric car ad so far. Video

[Seacamp Celebration Of Life] Grace Upshaw  & Caroline Childs. We hope you are able to join us September 23 – 25, 2022 for a Reunion and Celebration of Life for Grace Upshaw and Caroline Childs.  We look forward to having family, friends and alumni join us here at Seacamp.


Where else but Walmart!

[Bussing] Whomever thought of the idea of sending an entire bus load of books to Florida really stole the thunder from DeSantis’ immigrant bussing stunt. $15,000 per person going into his family member’s air transportation business? Suckers!


[Bizarre Turn Signals] How to replace blinker fluid. Video

Funeral fit for a Queen had a herse fit for a queen– the only Jaguar Herse in existance. It was a thing of beauty.
[Horseshit] The horses pooped on the Queen’s funeral route. Everyone was so percise and precisioned that I wonder if they stepped in the poop or stepped around it. I watched but they changed camera’s just before the many poop encounters.
[Gay Birds And The Bees] I feel bad for parents nowadays. You have to be able to explain the birds and the bees. The bees and the I bees. The birds and the birds. The birds that used to be bees. The bees that used to be birds. The birds that look like bees. Plus, bees that look like birds but still got a stinger.

[Bussing 2022] You got to love illegals being sent to Martha Vineyard by our Governor.
[Conductor Wanted] The Lower Keys Community Choir and Keys Chamber Orchestra are looking for a conductor for rehearsals and performances of our Christmas and Easter Cantatas. We volunteer our time and talents, rehearsing Sunday afternoons at the Big Pine Methodist Church beginning the end of October. The conductor is needed for orchestra rehearsals 2:00-4:00 p.m. followed by choir rehearsal 5:00 – 7:00 pm on Sundays.  Three concerts will be performed in December.  We then repeat for Easter starting mid-February. No need to be a full time resident if you are in the Keys from late-Oct to mid-Dec, and mid-Feb until Easter. It’s lots of fun and a way of giving to the community. Please contact for more information.

[Antlers] Does anyone sell key deer antlers? I have access to a hollowed-out antler, and I would like to have a pair of antlers to make an antler headset with lights on the tips.
