Tuesday Tidbits...
If you prefer clouds to sunshine, today might be right up your alley.
Then again, it does tend to make one feel as if the clouds are following you around, and that's something else to discuss on another day.
(I know the feeling)
Our Hooiserland weather will see us with partly cloudy conditions to start off with, followed with a bit more sunshine by afternoon, and a high today into the lower 60s once again, with light breezes. A shame we can't always get a nice sunrise at ground level, isn't it?
Still,  its another day...another "gift" as it were, and we meed to make the best of it, hmm?
Let's all get a nice drink parked alongside us as we see what's been newsworthy and on my mind of late.
*** First off of the sidewalk is our "What the hell happens today, Bob?" feature:
(and do we have a goodly amount of things going on)
April 14 - 
---Today is EX SPOUSE DAY.
Wow...argue much?
Some splits turn out somewhat okay..others, not so much.
(My ex passed away a couple years back, so it's just a day to remember for me)
"That's a side-splitter, Doc!"
(I don't suppose this is in conjunction with the ex-spouse thing?)
---It's also LOOK UP AT THE SKY DAY.
Good reason for THEM to look up.
(like some people don't have anything better to do?)
Wait, they MUST be referring to our "neighbors"...lol)
Just don't stare at the sun (unless you're taking an LSD trip)
A wonderful day for pie (pecan that is)
(didn't we JUST have one of those?)
Is this a "vertically-challenged" day?
(which for me is every week at the grocery, when what I want ALWAYS seem to be on the TOP shelf...in the BACK)
Just don't EVER let your reach exceed your grasp...a life lesson there to be sure.
Moving on...
*** Time once again for ALL the SHOTS FIRED calls and armed robberies that the media WON'T disclose to you (but I will...as a public service).

Yes, the assholes (especially on the SE side) HAVE been (very) busy this week, haven't they?
Always happens when those EBT cards get "recharged", doesn't it?
*** Everything OLD is always NEW again...sooner or later, right?
Welcome back....(sing along)
Case in point, please refer to my blog post from a LONG time ago (17 October, 2006 to be exact) where you will find a story about CHEYENNE MOUNTAIN closing down...sort of.
Well, the people that closed the facility to all but a skeleton staff have decided that in the interest of national security, they will REOPEN the place.
This is due mainly to the fear of attack from something ELSE I have mentioned here over the years...the dreaded EMP (eletro-magnetic pulse), which can render ANYTHING electronic into a bunch of nifty paperweights in mere seconds.
Here's the story:
Leave to the Israelis to know more about our stuff than we do.
One HELLUVA blast door!
Here's another similar article:
Okay, so WHY (exactly) did we close the place to begin with?
Pays to keep your "pass"
Back in 2006, I made rather light of it in lieu of the TV show Stargate SG-1, which was based IN Cheyenne Mountain (level 27 to be exact).
Guess the plan to shut the facility down was premature?
Thankfully, it was never TOTALLY "closed", but now, all this "Space Command" gear will have to be installed and the lights turned back on. Better to be SAFE...than sorry, right?
Here's the WIKI on the complex:
Guess that EMP stuff carries some weight to it, after all. Nice to see that the concern I (along with others) voiced for years is getting some traction.
Well, I'M ready....
Wonder if that means the STARGATE will open up as well...I've been hankering to go "off-world" again and see some REAL aliens...LOL.
*** Next up, a black guy gets busted for murder of a store owner.
Here's the story:
Once a thug...
Sanchez Williams, 26, of Fort Wayne has decided that his life isn't worth a damn...that's why he killed a store owner late last year...and finally got his sorry-ass charged with murder one. Bite marks were a key element in getting this dumbass charged.
Well, tips to police helped a bunch, too.
I wonder how THIS case will be plead down to "aggravated assault", or at worst, involuntary manslaughter?
Maybe he's just a victim of poverty and whitey keeping him down in life. I'm sure he's the life of parties, has a great sense of humor, and had turned his life around and found God (who was never lost in the first place).
No, I think he's a product of the culture of "thuggery"...and claims "victicratic status" as a minority who wants everything, but has NO desire to obtain any of it by ETHICAL means.
Sound about right?
Williams frequently donated plasma to a local plasma center (we know the type)
Last Friday, after compiling a case, a warrant was served at Williams' house, located in the 4800 block of Spatz Ave (southeast side...where the hell else?) Inside, police found clothing matching that on surveillance video.
Now, nothing was said about him being CAUGHT (just charged), so I'm not sure if he is STILL AT-LARGE.
Some media sources are saying he's in custody.
Hope that's the case.
Funny thing, Williams was CONVICTED of a burglary by a jury in October 2007, and was sentenced to TWELVE years in prison.
(now, boys and girls...do the math here)
His EARLIEST scheduled release was supposed to be JANUARY 2015 (and he committed the murder late in 2014.
Guess he got out "early"?
Not a good thing for ONE store owner, was it?
*** Next up,  Indiana looks to PR firm to shore up flagging image.
Here's the story:
For a NON-issue (RFRA) that was gunned up by the LEFT?
And the firm is from OUTSIDE the state/
(just to be "objective"?)
Who knows this state BETTER than those that LIVE here???
Certainly not those who DO NOT.
Why not take all that (soon-to-be-wasted) PR money and build a few more PRISONS to house the growing number of human refuse?
*** And speaking of human refuse, did you know that "singer" John Legend wants to SHUT DOWN PRISONS. Here's the story:
Not "ready for prime time", folks.
Cripes, this is becoming a "Martin World News" worthy scene with these loons...lol.
This guy must WANT anarchy, because that is what you will have.
"It's destroying families, it's destroying communities" Legend states.
NO, it's the CRIME that does that...prison is where bad people GO when they get caught AFTER the crimes are committed, you moron.
Crime destroys families (perp and victims alike) and it ALSO destroys communities...(I know, I, like Remo WIlliams,  "live the adventure")
Get a grip, get off the dope, and look REALITY in the face for a change, instead of bloviating such nonsense.
*** Next, and definitely on the "lighter" side, we bring you THE most photographed squirrel in Fort Wayne - Mr. Wrinkles:
...And the camera loves ME.
Okay, so it's NOT a beach chair
In "stealth" mode
Also, now that Spring has sprung, we have another "friend" who has returned and is THE most photographed RABBIT in Fort Wayne - Clover!
Checking out the new grass.
Right up to the patio door
There you go then...two of our critters that keep Wifey and I centered, and provide times of solace and joy.
(and we only have to feed them peanuts...and bird seed)
*** Last back to the patio...I'm always telling the lovely Mrs. Bobby G. how blessed we are to have the birds and other critters stop by our place...sure beats the TWO-LEGGED variety of flotsam, who have demonstrated time and again that THEY have less of a future than the cardinals at our feeder.
We have tried to create a place where these birds and small animals can come in relative peace and eat...and allow us the chance to see them up close and "personal" (well, not THAT personal...lol).
It's an added bonus if you will, to all the flowers and plants we have around our "Fortress".of Reason.
Uh, oh...
And it says a lot about the state of the human condition in general these days.
I alluded to it a bit yesterday when I spoke about HOW people now behave, especially in PUBLIC.
That's the cool thing with woodland creatures...what you see IS what you get, and to a city boy like me, that's pretty damn awesome.
With people, it's not as easily defined, because people LOVE to hide stuff (about themselves)
Other people are totally PREDICTABLE...like the :"locals" infesting the ghettohood around us.
Nature tells us much, and not just about itself, but about US, if we take time to pay attention.
There is nothing better than having your eyes opened to a larger vista...or universe, as it were.
Nothing wrong with that at all.
Be well, make a difference to someone, and...
Stay SAFE out there, America.

"Ex-Spouse Day?" Whoever came up with that one can come see me on KMA Day...

I thought they closed Cheyenne Mountain after the X-Men kicked Nefaria out and Thunderbird I got killed...

On Sanchez... leave it to the Blonde Phantom. I wonder if she'd feel different if one of her family got killed by some such recidivist moron.

PR firm- watch us hire someone from Frisco or Seattle...

Yep, none of these empty-headed libtards want to dig all the way back to the disease. Gibb's rule #70- Keep digging till you hit bottom. (actually made up by McGee)

At least Mr. Wrinkles HAS a brain, unlike a certain swamp dweller I know...

Bob G. said...

--I DO love that cake...lol.
KMA day...LMAO!
(sure they have one)

-- Nah, they closed Cheyenne after Stargate SG-1 went off the air and the DVDs came out
(The X-Men thing was the "cover-story")

--I thought the SAME thing..."rainbows everywhere...flowers in her hair" (sing along, Fort Wayne)...ROFL!

--Glad you made that NCIS call!
(And someday the leftards will figure out WHICH end of the shovel to use...heh)
You'd think with all their BS, they'd be PROS by now

--I will say ONE thing about Wrinkles - HE has ME trained VERY well.

Thanks for stopping on by today to comment.

Stay safe up there, brother.
