Wichita State has been good of late, the Wheatshockers could make hay. Oh, I slightly junked-up that description of that Engineering Dept. Head, as I didn't want you figure-out his identity. I just re-visited my most beautiful Blog on martyred Archbishop Oscar Romero (Sept. 21, 2010), I was feeling my Oats that day. The reason for this Drought is that there's too many people so they're using-up too much of the water. I first wrote a U.S. Senator complaining of continued Immigration into the United States in 1979. All these Foreigners whether legal or illegal and their Progeny are using-up the water, they're using-up the Infrastructure (Interstate 5 used to be a lot-less congested), they're using-up everything. The U.S. is way-overpopulated. Italy's Supreme Court is now deciding whether to uphold Amanda Knox' Murder Conviction and then seek her Extradition from the U.S. Italy is a 5th-Rate Country which doesn't know what it's doing. Any attempt to extradite her should be forcibly-resisted. Were I she I would never leave the U.S.
March 23 I received the 3rd most Hits of my 6 and half years of doing my pretty Blog, and it was close to the 2nd most. Anybody interested in "hee hee"---You People's Mentality!! Years ago, as I was heading to Tampa, Fla. for the my first time there, I was told that as they were really building the City, that Men walking down the street would be asked if they wanted to work. So, my first morning in Tampa, I'm walking down the sidewalk and a car pulls up alongside-me with the passenger's side next to the Curb and a guy slides over from the driver's side to the passenger's side and sticks his head out of the window and asks me if I wanted to work Construction, I told him I didn't. I love to go to Parties, I consider myself to be a good-mixer, as I'm at least a little-bit interested in everything it's easy for me to find common-ground with anyone, and I like to meet people. In my youth I would go to parties all the time, but maybe because I'm old nobody ever asks me anymore, I haven't been to a party in years. McKayla throws parties and she never invites me

I'm a Hell of a Guy. Vanuatu just suffered a catastrophic Typhoon. I've been to Efate, staying in the Capital of Port Vila. English Protestant Missionary, John Williams, quickly converted all of Samoa to Christianity, the Polynesians (biggest thieves in the World tho they pay effusive Lip Service to the Love of God) took to it like a duck to water. The Rev. Williams tried the same on Vanuatu, Melanesians, where he and another Minister were Clubbed and Eaten in 1839. I was on Efate and enjoyed it. Supposedly having the best Kava in the World, I indulged at my Hotel's outdoor "Kava Bar." It tasted horrible and gave me a bad buzz. I'll try anything once, except goin' Queer and Maining Smack. Nice people, didn't try to munch on me. Formula 1 is the fastest and most dangerous, but in the U.S. many like NASCAR, and some think its next big thing will be 4'4" Rico Abreu, Nature has compensated with razor-sharp reflexes. In my last Blog, yesterday, I had noticed that I should have put the possessive at the end of Rebels rather than in front of the "s", but I was in a hurry to get finished and do something else. I should have corrected, if I'm sloppy, you will be. If I say the Sky is green, you'll be outside marvelling at the green Sunsets. Due to what he's done for Wrestling, my older brother, Bob, has Banquets thrown in his Honor, I don't get anything like that, you should Google him, you don't need meeeeee for anything

I saw UNLV lose to Reno, a much better team, in baseball. The Rebel's lst Baseman lost a ball in the sun and twice a ball fell between 2 outfielders, cohesion is needed. In the Mountain West Conference play-offs I saw Boise State beat Air Force (basketball), and Wyoming beat Utah State, barely, Wyoming won the whole thing and along with Boise State will play in the NCAA. I saw the one game, a half-hour in between, and then the next, that is from 12 noon to 4:30, I like this format of seeing 2 games (both games for the same price).
Hi Ho Everyone. I recently drove my beautiful Avalon to the Chevron at Flamingo and Maryland here in L.V. to gas-up, I probably coasted-in on the fumes. I pumped 16 and a quarter gallons, it's a 16 gal. tank. When I went to get my change I flirted with "the Butcher's Thumb" but resisted. I was watching the Big Bands on the PBS, Glenn Miller's "In The Mood" would get anybody's blood moving. Been too hot lately, 84 the other day, 3 years ago March was plenty cold. Ichiro Suzuki's great career is winding-down with the Marlins, I saw him play for Seattle in Toronto's beautiful stadium, it was "Japanese Appreciation Night." In the U.S., the Major Leaguers' time is their own when they're not on Club business, while in Japan all of the Japanese Players' time is orchestrated whether it's Club business or otherwise. In his 2nd year with the Mariners... In Japan, they treat you as though you were a child... I'm up to 213, I should weight 205, I look pretty-good if you overlook the fat, maybe pretend it's not there. When I was a Freshman at Bowling Green (Ohio), my room-mate was Vince Newlin. Vince's look-alike (6'4", muscular, same mug) younger brother by 2 years was Mike Newlin, Star Shooting-Guard for the Houston Rockets who all you old-guys remember (paired with Calvin "Dad" Murphy, at last report 14 children by 9 women). Vince put all his eggs in one basket, on football, and it didn't turn-out, Vince was very hard-working and strong-minded, probably like Mike, and I'm sure his life went well. Vince had gone to one of those Catholic Boys High Schools around L.A. and in those days they turned-out a lot of virtuous, virginal, young men. Anyway, one night Vince and I borrowed a car and drove 20 miles to Toledo to see a burlesque-show at a place called "The Town Hall." It was pretty-good and I still remember one of the Comedian's jokes. Vince had never seen anything like the way these women postured themselves and, ha, ha, was covering his face with his hands throughout. Now, it's not as though I led a virtuous, chaste, young man, into a Den of Iniquity, I don't recall that it was even my idea to go there (I sure hope he doesn't read this). That was a memorable evening, I never saw Vince again as I transferred to Ohio State and he went back to Ca., but I think fondly of his good personality and high character.
It grows and it grows... My paternal grandmother was an Ethnic German Catholic from Romania, and her middle-name was Magdalene, common in Europe, but real uncommon for someone born in the U.S. This Robert Durst thing, Jews shouldn't be killing and slicing each other-up, show restraint. Al Rosen just passed at "91." Enlisting in the Navy at the beginning of WW 11, Al was in the Assault on Okinawa, and discharged a lieutenant after serving 4 years. Advancing from the Minor Leagues to the Cleveland Indians, Al was the Tribe's star 3rd Baseman for 10 years from 1947 through 1956, winning the American League MVP as the unanimous selection in 1953 when he was less than 1 percentage point in Batting Average from the Triple Crown. In 1989, Al was the National League Executive of the Year with the Giants. An outstanding Baseball Man, Al is missed. I've Googled everybody I can think of, not on these Services, but regular Googling. A girl I used to see in College married some guy who was the head of Mechanical and Metallurgical Engineering for 14 years at a very famous and highly esteemed University. I would have thought that I was the best she could do (you're thinking, you are). It seems like she had a fine life, with children, a stable and long marriage, he must have had rodeo experience

Due to the turnout to see "American Sniper," I know that you enjoy such stories. A good book is "One Shot One Kill," and real good books are "Dear Mom, A Sniper's Vietnam," and "Marine Sniper." This last is about Carlos Hathcock, who is considered by many to be the best sniper of all-time. An Arkie from the Ozarks, and raised by his Grandmother, enlisting at "17," he found a home in the Marine Corps. Known to the N. Vietnamese as "White Feather" due to the small white feather worn from vanity on his bush-hat (he wanted them to know and fear him), Carlos had the equivalent of 3 years pay as the bounty that the N. Vietnamese placed on his head, killing every one who tried to claim it. His rationale was that he was protecting ...Those kids dressed-up like Marines that those bastards wanted to kill... If you want to read true-drama, read how Carlos went inch-by-inch (for this one he wore no white feather) towards the N. Vietnamese General's house for 4 nights and 3 days, knowing that if detected he'd be tortured and killed, at the dawn of the 4th night the General came out of his house, stretched and was shot through the chest from 600 yards, an ordinary-shot for Carlos. Carlos was given no advance information about the Assignment he was offered other than he probably wouldn't survive, he accepted. Going through his first Tour of Vietnam unscathed, during his 2nd Tour, Carlos was hitching a ride on a halftrack that hit a landmine, due to his heroic-nature he pulled Marines off the burning-vehicle and was badly-burned, due to his wounds he eventually died prematurely at "56."
I bought a sheet of Jimi Hendrix Stamps, several months ago I wanted Janis Joplin, but so did everybody else, and the P.O. was out (or stolen, the one I go to). I haven't seen Ken Jennings' "Kennections" in Parade recently, miss it. Ken tithed his winnings on "Jeopardy," makes the Mormons look good. Went down on an easy one, probably tired of doing it. Every couple weeks, after working-out, I go to "Little Caesar's" (...I'm Little Caesar, yeah, that's me...) and get their "Ultimate Supreme," a large pizza with 7 toppings, I eat most and throw the rest away. It's plenty good and only 8 plus tax in L.V., get this, in San Diego it's $3 more. Las Vegas' roads are getting like San Diego's, terrible, and for the same reason, for many years their taxpayers have allowed Public Employees to spend their tax-money on Salaries and Pensions instead of Infrastructure, the people of both locales are just stupid (the drug-scene has taken its toll). Why would this thing about Mrs. Clinton using her personal email account instead of a Federal Govt. email account, only be coming to light now? Why not years ago when Mrs.Clinton was Sec. of State? The American Media, especially the TV Media, are just stupid (...the drug-scene...). Soon they'll be walking-around with their tongues hanging-out of their mouths.
I worked with that girl. I was so kind to her that I would have even shared food with her. I'll receive my reward in Heaven. Now, on March 9 I received the 2nd most Hits of my Blog in the 6 and a half years I've been writing it, one and a half times as many Hits in a day other than Feb. 23, and I writ me no Blog since March 5 (?). Should I cease you'd shrivel-up and wither away like the Wicked Witch of the West, I'm real flattered. Margaret Rudin is being granted a new trial. She was convicted in 1999 of killing her husband, wealthy Realtor, Ron Rudin (body found full of bullets, his head cut-off) in 1994. Fleeing, Margaret was caught due to being featured on "America's Most Wanted." Ron was a patient of, yes, my buddy Joshua the Chiropractor, who liked Ron saying he was a good guy. Josh treated Ron for many years, and also treated Margaret, who he described as "Squirrely," said she wanted him to do some weird thing or the other (all in this story are Jewish). Ron was a rough guy who always carried more than one gun on his person, but at home he was vulnerable. Josh was glad when she was captured.

Dakota Johnson is the daughter of Don Johnson and Melanie Griffith and inherited her father's good looks (...There's nothing I can do, no there's nothing I can do...) I saw "American Sniper" and thought it pretty good, Chris Kyle's Widow likes it. That guy killing him, obviously he's insane, but yeah, he might do it again if ever set free. In Minnesota, they're talking about Job Programs for the Somalis so there'll be full employment amongst them, and they'll be too occupied to think about killing the other Minnesotans, ohhh. I chanced upon the Final Question on "Jeopardy" last night, I got it right, I said "Kennedy" after the time expired, all 3 of them missed it, 2 had Eisenhower and 1 had Lyndon Johnson, ohh. That's the first Final Question I've tried to answer in many years, I might start watching "Jeopardy" again, I can control myself, can't I, that sure is fun.
This past Tuesday, I went to the Bellagio to see "Faberge Revealed," the largest collection of Faberge outside of Russia. The 238 artworks were made by the House of Faberge, the appointed Jewelers to the Russian Court, during their ascendancy of 1872 to 1915 under Carl Peter Faberge, and I tried to memorize them all. Amongst them were 10 Faberge Eggs, of the 54 created from 1885 to 1915 for Czar Alexander 111 and Czar Nicholas 11, 42 still exist. Some of the 10 are the best-known, the Pelican Egg, the Czaravich Egg, the Peter the Great Egg, the Red Cross Egg (Czarina Alexandra was the Head of the Russian Red Cross during WW 1). Faberge wished to emulate the exquisite intricacies of the Scythians and succeeded. You should try to develop healthy interests.
A large portion of Mexico's population is now living in the U.S. Mexico has always been regarded as a Basket-Case unable to take care of itself, and We have all these same People here, a Pessimist might say that this Country is washed-up. Putin is desperate, leading to the demise of Boris Nemtsov. Mikhail Khodorkovsky also has no Bodyguards and he better beware, the Russian Solution is often the Final (See My Blog on Alexander Lebed, March 8, 2009, one of Ed's finest).
Ol' Eric Holder was complaining recently that Blacks are stopped by the Police more frequently than Whites, well, Blacks have a much higher propensity towards Crime than Whites. Jesse Jackson said that when he hears footsteps behind him, he's relieved to see that it's a White Guy. Our Ambassador to S. Korea being slashed in Seoul is unsurprising. Early in the 1988 Seoul Summer Olympics (been in the stadium), a Boxing Referee was attacked by Onlookers as he was part of an Decision against a S. Korean Boxer. Walker said, I'm getting out of here, and bought an expensive ticket, catching the first thing smoking back to New Zealand. At the end of the Boxing in the Seoul Olympics, Roy Jones, who nonetheless was Selected as the Most Proficient Boxer in the Olympics, was adjudged the Loser in his Gold Medal Match with the S. Korean Boxer, who was beaten badly, declared the Winner, as the S. Koreans had bribed the Judges. At the 2008 Beijing Olympics, the Chinese blatantly Cheated in Women's Gymnastics, winning their Team Gold Medal by using underage Girls for whom there was ample Documentation that they were well under "16." The Chinese were so Arrogant that they showed the World that they would Cheat in order to Win, and What of it? Both S. Korea and China spent huge money and effort on their Olympics, only to show themselves in a Bad Light as Cheats, this is how the Seoul and Beijing Olympics are remembered.
