    Incardona is a Wise-ass

    You won't believe how that rascal insulted me. We were at Bogies in Houston for one of the Senior tournaments. The day before the tournament I was watching Incardona and Bill Rowsey playing a set. Tall Jeff came in and said, "C'mon, John, I'll buy you a drink." I said, "Thanks anyway, Jeff...

    My ruminations about Covid 19

    This is just some stuff I'm observing and thinking about. I'll probably want to add to it later. Make of it what you will; I don't know myself how much of it is relevant to the way we should be guided. USA 50 million +/- tests Worldometer Corona virus USA says: 3,926,000 alleged positives...

    PCR Tests

    I'm not a doctor, I just play one on the internet, but I found this stuff interesting Quote: Bulgarian Pathology Association Though the whole world relies on RT-PCR to "diagnose" Sars-Cov-2 infection, the science is clear: they are not fit for purpose: From Engelbrecht and Konstantin...

    The Gosford Glyphs

    A friend of mine recently told me that he wasn't nearly as interested in this ancient stuff as I am, and he doubted that many people were. :D Well, in case you are one of that few, here ya go: It's 56 minutes long, but you'll get a good idea of the subject matter -- the story of an ancient...

    Advanced stonework in ancient Peru

    I'm not selling anything, I just figure that what fascinates me will fascinate some of you. Enjoy it or fuggedaboudit! :D Here's a 16-minute video that makes me doubt that much of the old stone shaping could have been accomplished with the primitive tools we are told the people had who did the...

    Atlantis? Really? Nah, but...

    The likelihood that there might be elements of truth in the story of Atlantis has gained in recent years as ice cores and study of other geological features have increased knowledge of the centuries before and during the period known as the Younger Dryas, roughly 11,000 to 9,000 BC. Around...

    Politically Correct (Or NOT!)

    Our valued compadre Unpaid Bill (vapros) raised the issue of political correctness and brought to mind a piece of Canadian legislation passed in 2017 I read about lately that is a little scary. Bill C-16 purports to be about hate speech, as such a thing might relate to " gender, pronoun use...

    "Jerry" Stories.

    My friend Jerry is a character. He has a talent for coming up with the kind of lines that I think of hours later: "I should have said...." I've got three for ya; one he said to me, and the other two he claims he said at the "right" time. He was tired of his job and was looking around for...

    Cliff is Playing the Scotty Townsend

    Unfortunately, he drew Pagulayan in the first round, and lost 4-0, but he's playing reasonably well. Hitting about 85% of his shots as well as ever, 10% substandard and 5% poorly. He still has weakness and diminished control on his left side, but he's managing the bridge OK and looks to me that...
