Saturday Comments


 
 


I go out about three times a day and empty the frozen animal water bowl and refill it.  Good time just to search the internet or read a book.


Coming up is an interesting auction http://www.amauctions.com/2-17-16-online-only-absolute-restaurant-liquidation-auction/
   Besides the kitchen equipment at Laurel Junction (Bargin Bills) there is the stuff upstairs in the bar,  like 20 tvs, beer coolers, kitchen knives, good stuff you can furnish that man cave but even worst this time they have an 18% buyer premium.  It would have to go awfully cheap for me to pay that kind of premium.

This week my youngest daughter had a birthday so she and her sister combined it with Amber's birthday and Megan, Susan, Amber and Kelly are off to New York City for the weekend.  One of their planned trips to go to the empire state building on valentine day.  Popular since Sleepless in Seattle 
we will see if they can get there.



I watched the Democrat debates this week.  The one in which Hillary was dressed as a minion. 


There was a number of disturbing things they said but what bothered me most was;

9:32 p.m. A question is selected from an undeclared voter on Facebook: How would you address the disproportionately high black male prison population?
Sanders says that the criminal justice system is broken and must be reform. He adds that "over-policing" in black communities needs to end.
Clinton says she agrees with Sanders and begins to highlight problems in Wisconsin, where the debate is being held. She talked about Dontre Hamilton who was a young black man, unarmed, "who should still be with us." A white police officer fatally shot Hamilton in 2014


I just don't understand it, black or white they are in jail for breaking a law,  are they implying if they are black the police should let them continue to break the law?

Speaking of crime;  over the years since I have lived in Delmar I have had my vehicle windshield smashed about three times, the car tags have been stolen also about three times, tag stickers stolen, all the vehicles have been rummaged thru and items stolen, porch furniture stolen, hanging flower baskets stolen, bicycles stolen, the outside unit of my heat pump was tampered with breaking a fan, I guess they were trying to steal copper or Freon. and various items in the yard were stolen.  Interestingly rarely was a tool, to do work with, stolen.  Naturally with the exception of the broken windshield none of those items were covered by insurance so I had pay out of pocket to replace them. 

Dontre Hamilton mentioned above by Hillary Clinton, was a mental ill person sleeping on a park bench, when the police tried to help him he resisted and was shot 14 times.  Over kill no doubt but that is what happen when you let mentally ill people roam the streets.  In surveys I have looked at about half the homeless veterans have some type of problem from substance abuse to mental problems.  Mayor Houlihan would welcome those people to Delmar - Ignoring the safety of the community. All for some politically correct agenda he has. Since Mayor Houlihan is a member of both the VFW and The American Legion I question rather ethically he should be on the Delmar Board Of adjustments when the Homeless shelter case is brought before the board.  Likewise for the other members of the Board of Adjustment if they are also members of any group that backs homeless shelters or homeless shelters for veterans. 

Delmar has gotten so bad that when I go for a walk around the town the possibility of being mugged and robbed is so great that I mark all the money ($15) I carry with me so at least I can testify against them in court if they are caught with the money.




As I have said before the main social life old people have is doctor appointments and funerals.  Again this week someone else I knew died.  It is like everyone was holding on to get pass Christmas and then said to hell with it and died.








yes it today



There are a number of strange things the Japanese do.  One of which is some of the costumes the young people like to wear.  This is more of a commercial aspect but in Akihabara they have "maid cafĂ©" in which the waitresses dress as French maids.  http://muza-chan.net/japan/index.php/blog/akihabara-maids-uchimizu
But everything in Akihabara, or “Akiba” as most Japanese call it is special

 Currently circulating on Facebook, it is real and apparently it was given some press coverage.  It stands at the end of the former Military Ocean Terminal in Bayonne, NJ, and was dedicated on September 11, 2006, in a ceremony attended by former U.S. President Bill Clinton and the President of Russia Vladimir Putin

I have been looking at Change.org,  an online petition website,  they have a zillion petitions including
 "Make an ice cream flavor in honor of Vice President Joe Biden letter to ben and Jerry."

Letter to
Ben & Jerry's
Make an ice cream flavor in honor of Vice President Joe Biden

Vice President Joe Biden is clearly a fan of ice cream. He can be seen in photos eating ice cream with everyone from President Barack Obama to your average, everyday American. In honor of America's Happy Warrior and everything he's done for our country (both during his 36 year tenure as a U.S. Senator from Delaware where he was legendary for bipartisanship, and as Vice President of the United States), an ice cream flavor should be created in his honor, and who better to do it than Ben & Jerry's, the most famous American ice cream creators?
 
What you say that is not a picture of Joe eating ice cream? are you serious? you would really like to see him eat ice cream instead of these two girls.  You people are strange.
There is also a petition to remove Delaware as a state and add it Maryland https://www.change.org/p/barack-obama-donald-trump-when-becomes-president-remove-delaware-as-a-state-add-to-maryland





1968 superplaid run wild sometimes you are glad the 1960s are gone.



  The Star Democrat in Easton is reporting that the Golden Corral in Easton has closed.  It seems to be an outcome of a confession of judgment against KTS enterprises by BankUnited.  The place had been open about four years.  It may just be temporary but you figure for the time being that makes more people unemployed in Easton.  Its a shame my wife and I would use it as a half way point to meet friends from the western shore when we just wanted to have lunch with them.
 


and in the Sussex guide this week was another 37 people applying for a conceal weapon permit
 
 
A guy walks into a crowded bar, waving his un-holstered 

handgun and yells,
 "I have a .45 Colt Auto with eight rounds in the clip and one in the chamber,
 and I want to know who's been sleeping with my wife."
A voice from the back of the room calls out, "You don't have enough ammo!"

TGIF

Big Black Cloud Over Delmar

Back in the 1960s and depending on the type of telephone exchange you had you could dial a number you knew would more than likely be busy and talk over the busy signal to other people.  Called various names "The Beep Line" is the one I seem to recall being used most.  When a busy signal is heard it comes from a central location on the telephone exchange.  All the people who are calling that number at the same time would all be hooked into the same device generating the busy signal.  So if you called your favorite radio station WJDY it was usually busy so a number of teenagers discovered that between the beeps they could talk.  Like;  Beep "who Is" Beep "out there" Beep "want To" Beep "Hook up?"  Beep .  Yea it was cutting edge social media in the 1960's.  Eventually telephone exchanges came up with a method where this would not work but I recall it worked in Salisbury, later out in Ajo, Arizona and later still in Huntsville Alabama.

Very interesting results for this little test I have put some of the answers under it 
There were no survivors



 
“It’s no big deal.”
“I don’t love you.”

“Then there was one.”
The timing was wrong.
you owe me money
He’ll never pick me.
Forgotten, he died alone.
He never understood why

She is not yours.
Too long. Didn’t read

Never saw her again.
It was never real
I never loved me


what did I do?
Parallel lines never meet

Yet I said, no.
Sometimes I just cant
There was no pizza

i went too far

Hello? Is anybody there?

But nobody ever came…
What’d I do wrong?

We could have won
Depression prevails once again.
I am still alive

Brady and his staff will be available by appointment Saturday, Feb. 13, and Sunday, Feb. 14, to perform marriage ceremonies at the County Administrative Offices building on The Circle in Georgetown.

 
“The Marriage Bureau has what I call an ‘open hearts and open door’ policy – we’re here to welcome in couples with love and care, and we’re here to do it no matter the time of day,” Mr. Brady said. “What better way to spend Valentine’s Day weekend than to be surrounded by so much love and help people make memories that will last a lifetime?”

Obama


Tuesday







The media is giving Clinton the win in Iowa, I don't see how Clinton won as both of them seem to have had an even split on votes.  Oh well on to New Hampshire.

umm  umm  good from the 1950s



Well February 16th at 7:30 you can express your opinion on this topic.  You can also write a letter to Mayor Mike Houlihan Delmar Town Hall and your letter will be read at the meeting if you don't think you can be there.





Love will always find a way to overcome problems
