You'll be glad to learn that I had 6 months' of ground-in caked-on guck scraped off my teeth and that they feel a lot better. Tim Tebow is a do-gooding Virgin and is doing quite good with the Denver Broncos as he had while winning the Heisman Trophy at Florida. Tennyson's Galahad possessed the strength of 10 for his heart was pure, he had never known a woman in a carnal sense of his 2 companions one was like Galahad while the other had once but he had repented (as long as you repent). Everything about Tim is unorthodox, despite his rugged play he's seldom hurt, I saw a photo in the paper last year of him bending a D-Lineman. I've seen you women before and I know what you're like many of you would like to get your hot hands on Tim so that he's no longer this way, well, you can just forget about that and try to think better thoughts for a change (if that's possible). I blame the parents of the TV Media for them being the way they are as none of them had any propers brin gins' up (shameless whores for that paycheck). The History Channel has forgotten its original purpose and now shills mindless pap for the unwashed masses, it should change its name. Jerry Sandusky and Bernie Fine have had all this fall on them while not having been convicted of anything, it's the Monkey Majority Mob Mentality so prevalent in this country today. Merry Christmas.

The cottage that Hoover (1874 to 1964 living to be 90) was born in to Quaker parents is on the grounds and I really enjoyed the fine museum that illustrated a mostly very successful life. Herbert Hoover claimed to be the first student at Stanford graduating in Geology in 1895 it was there that he met his wife Lou who also graduated in Geology. At 24 his company sent him to Western Australia where he found gold deposits he persuaded them to buy for a mil and they mined 60 mil in gold. He and Lou went to China and then back to Australia (when President, Herbert and Lou would converse in Mandarin Chinese when they wanted their conversation to be private). During and after WW I Herbert Hoover did suberb work with humanitarian food efforts and then was Secretary of Commerce under Harding and Coolidge (March, 1921 to August, 1928) where he did much to cut waste in business and industry such that many consider him to be the best ever Sec. of Commerce. The prosperity and feel good era of the 20's won him the Presidency in 1928 and even taking much of the "Solid South" as Al Smith was derided as a Papist and a "Wet" being against Prohibition. His Vice President was Charles Curtis (1860-1936) former Senate Majority Leader from Kansas who was three-eighths Indian, growing up on a Reservation with his maternal grandparents (sort of like Barry) he arose from humble origins to great prominence (only in America). Within 8 months of his Inauguration the Great Depression began and Hoover's efforts (Smoot-Hawley, etc.) to combat it were ineffectual. Everything that Herbert Hoover did in his life was superb until he became President. Herbert and Lou Hoover's graves are way out back and when I went to view them (I always say a few prayers) there was an educated-looking young guy trimming the grass and I ventured to say that it was sort of like the Peter Principle where you advance until you can't do it anymore and he agreed, looking back maybe I shouldn't have been discussing this at their gravesite.
I went to Springfield Massachusetts and saw the International Basketball Hall of Fame where a team is prominently featured that my Old Man played on, I must admit to being a mite proud of this, my Sire, welllll, I can crank out good downhome Telepathy 24 hours a day and that's a whole lot more important, I'm the best at Telepathy since the World began. An accomplished Family. On to Buffalo where I saw Niagara Falls for the first time in 50 years if you want to see real falls go to Iguazu the most waterfall in the world (ehhh the Devil's Throat). Buffalo is very old but well kept-up, I thought I'd go to Toronto for a day or 2 the mental instability of the Canadians should concern you. To Ann Arbor where I was inside Michigan Stadium the 3rd largest in the world, seats 115,000 (the Big House) and Crisler Arena next door. The Gerald Ford Presidential Library is at U. Michigan. To Grand Rapids to see the Gerald Ford Presidential Museum which chronicled Ford's 2 years 5 months as President, Gerald was buried behind it last April when I was there and now Betty has joined him. To Iowa City where I was briefly on the Campus of U. of Iowa and then to the suburb of West Branch ($70 RT taxi) to see the Herbert Hoover Presidential Library and Museum the 12th and last of the presidential libraries that I've been to that is all of them although they're completing the Bush the Younger's outside of Dallas (I don't go to do any research in the libraries I just see the museums).

I had been to Boston before, in Colonial Times there were many hangings on Boston Commons of Pirates, Indians, Religious Dissenters and other rogues. I walked about in the Capitol Building was there before. I went to Breed's Hill in Charlestown where most of the Battle of Bunker Hill took place there's an obelisk and a museum. June 17, 1775 the British assaulted the Americans at their fortified positions on Breed's Hill succeeding in driving the Americans off only after their 3rd attempt and only after the Americans had run out of ammunition. The Americans had only a few casualties whereas the British suffered a third of their soldiers being killed or wounded and it was higher amongst the officers, American General Nathanael Greene commented I'd like to sell them another hill for that price. Previously I had toured the USS Constitution in Boston Harbor on August 19, 1812 the Constitution slugged it out with the British frigate HMS Guerriere whose cannon balls bounced off the sides of the Constitution seeing this the American Sailors cried Huzzah She has Sides of Iron. The Guerriere was totalled and its crew taken prisoner. Little boys called Powder Monkeys carried the gunpowder from down below up to the cannon, Marksmen aimed at the officers and the little boys. I had taken the Boston City Bus to Salem to see Gallows Hill where the convicted witches were hung and the House of Seven Gables. The John F. Kennedy Library and Museum is the only one of the presidential libraries that I've been to twice. President Kennedy was very inspirational and although he made a hash of the Bay of Pigs in general he was quite good had he lived there would have been no Vietnam War a tremedous debacle like all these unconstitutional wars we've had since WW II.
That upscale woman who did charity work in Harlem and had the shopping cart dropped 4 stories on her reminds me of a storyline from Zap Comics---A Honkey Goes Into the Ghetto and Makes a Fool Out of Himself (I Really Love You People). We all make our own problems. They crucified Ohio State over some guys getting a free sleeve of tattoos this thing at Penn State is a lot worse. I don't get it I went to St. Sebastian's through the 8th Grade and if some priest had said or done something untoward I would have gone home and told my parents and Thunder would have Rolled and I don't mean the next day. Why these horrible things would continue on for years makes no sense to me. Jerry Sandusky was one of the most highly respected coaches in the country. Most men are turned-off by tattoos on a woman, lips of a tattooed woman shall not touch mine. Not only are the roads terrible in San Diego now often their traffic lights malfunction that is you might be stuck on permanent red light, the brains of the people of San Diego are scrambled eggs what are you laughing about. I've walked the track at Daytona and it's hard just to stay upright when you're on the 31 degree turn.
