Well, the weather station in the back yard is reporting 66.6 — cue evil music. Looks to be a good but slightly cooler than normal week here. Looks like I can avoid the hated A/C. Read more…

I doubt if the President is reading your phone’s output but you never know about those lower on the pecking list.  We’ve all said something we thought innocent that came back to haunt.  What to do?  Seems like every blogger I know is off to Vegas. Read more…

Dave’s final table was devoid of the paste on logos that were a secondary revenue source back in the good old days.

Times change!

What is Mojo?

June 11th, 2014 2 comments

Bloggers and friends can quickly give an answer.  Dave Smith has never hid behind the MemphisMojo name.  And, after the last few days,  that should be an added solace.  He’s been outed by name on a big stage.   Read more…

Strange New World

It was a Roddenberry book that was made into a movie.  A hibernating space crew returns to an Earth unlike the one they left.

Yall be careful out there

Last evening I watched a Frontline special : The United States of Secrets.   It was sad.  It provided the detail that we missed or didn’t put together as well.  It showed the anguish of many people that anguished over what they were seeing.  Some good people left government.  One was destroyed when he was prosecuted and then used up his retirement and the rest to defend himself.  Then, the government dropped the case before it could go to trial.   Despicable.

I haven’t really followed this Sterling brouhaha.  I guess he said some very nasty things to his biracial girlfriend in the privacy of his home.  He is a billionaire.  He donates to the NAAPC and Democratic party and has a biracial girlfriend.  Not the typical source for spewing what he spewed.

S O B — State of the Blog (and hamburger)

April 24th, 2014 7 comments

Haven’t been around much.  Got so bad Linda sent me a note to see if I was OK.  The thing is, I started seeing myself as a cracked record.  To much of what I was saying sound too familiar.  Worked for a poker blog but not in the new era.  So, I’ve back off to avoid being the most boringly repetative blog on the net.

Parrot Lovers covered by Obamacare

I look at many thing and scratch my head.  It part of that raised in another era thing that separates the generations.  But, every once in a while, there is something that can give a laugh or tears across generation.  It is something that is so stupid that it’d only seem normal on The Big Bang Theory.

Mass Hysteria

March 24th, 2014 No comments

Hysteria comes and goes like we’re  somehow bipolar.  It is an adjunct of the information our brain processes.  It shows up at the polls and in late night bar discussion.  Euphoria is so much more fun — even if it is processing flawed data too.  Were is Spock when we need him so badly?  How do we prove we are the rational being the text books describe?
