I heard a boy win a local radio contest the other day. He won $30. When the DJ asked what he was gonna do with the money he said he liked to read so he thought he would buy some reading material. When asked what material he thought he would buy he replied "I'm Gonna Buy $30 Worth Of Victoria's Secret Catalogs"!USN2
Germans have later complained it was punitive to bomb Dresden.
Vonnegut describes the hell there he experienced. He said in a lecture at University of Georgia that it was absolutely necessary. He was in a documentary and the documentary was portraying him as ambivalent. He was not happy about that. University of Georgia had Kurt Vonnegut come speak. Auburn- Charles Barkley. I've never seen a school more warped than AU. Hal Moore was available, but Iraq and Afghanistan were going on, so they dedicated 280 and the student union was too libtard to have him come speak. Most of them didn't know the Student Union building named after Foy, was named after Dean of Students Foy, who was a fighter pilot in WW2. Foy was an a-hole, he hated hippies, he kicked out dopers- I think I'd liked him.
My favorite book involves Ice-9, I forget the name. His satire of organized religion, government, the law of unintended consequences.
I've been reading Major Harry Smith, Australian Armed Forces account of Long Tran and all the hell he went through afterwards.
It's an excellent book. 100 Australians vs 2500 VC. Based on body count, the Aussies won. The VC declared it a victory.
"American Lion" by John Mechum. Biography of Andrew Jackson. Got motivated to read about Jackson after reading "The Creature from Jekyll Island- a second look at the Federal Reserve". That's a real eye opener.
I bought a bunch of Curtus "Curtis" Turner's papers, pictures, and documents some time back from a writer/reporter's estate.
I've been reading them- Turner's thoughts, his methods, etc.
He was an Early of Earliest Nascar driver, friend and sometimes enemy of Fireball Roberts.
Reminded me of why I hate NASCAR now.
Man had a fascinating life.
At same time I just finished reading Fast as White Lightin' by former Charlotte Newpaper reporter Kim Chapin. I haven't watched a race since 2000.
I have an old Yahoomail Account- in it, some friends who worked in Mooresville and Dawsonville were talking about the "standardized body template". I said "The France family will use this to import a line of cars."
The person, who I think had more than a good guess- "No, they'll sell all teams a common chassis, shell, and engine. They don't want to be in the car business except as it controls NASCAR."
I'm getting tired of 50+ years of Gun Collecting, and to add insult to injury, my local Range has been Partially Closed since March due to Covid Panic.
So I just started a new Hobby, collecting Swiss Automatic Dive Watches. I had an Omega Seamaster for about 15 years but I gave it to my Son last...
Every time I watch a film with Ann Margret in it I see a Beautiful Woman that can also do many things besides acting.
Is their a favorite Woman besides your Partner that registers on the Ten scale.
Seagiant you must have at least One? ;)

I have (5) grandkids (two more on the way) and 2 of the 5 are boys. Both of the boys had birthdays recently and I wanted to restore something in my shop to give them as a birthday present.
The boys both love tractors so I decided to start looking on eBay for some vintage 70's Die Cast tractors...
