My Local FOX Affiliate Chose To Omit President Trump Addressing The Nation Today On The Subjects Of Immigration And The .gov Shutdown.

I wonder how it was with other networks in other parts of the country today. I would imagine this silence was a concerted effort to torpedo the POTUS. I hope Chuck Schumer saw the speech and I hope he cried. With that said and if you missed it, here it is.

There is a need

Coffee + Web Surfing + Abandoned Russian Tanks = New Music Find.

     Morning All :)

I'm sitting here drinking my Joe and surfing the sidebar as I wait for to start prepping for 

Snowmaggedon 2019!!  

 One of the stops was over to Kenny's and this IMAGE caught my eye. It's just after the boobs.

 In one of the comments, Miles Long , noted that the tanks are on Shikotan Island.

 Scroll down in the comments and click on Miles Long's link to an article about the tanks.

  Being inquisitive, I searched for things about the island and the tanks  .

One video that I watched was this one just below. I sipped coffee, hit play and the soundtrack

music started (around the 10 second mark)... "damn" I thought to my self, 

that's some nice guitar work. Suddenly, abandonded tanks were off the list

and music took the lead.

Now I had to go track that song down.

"Siri?.. What song is this?" I asked ( Ain't modern technology great!!)

Siri replied.....

Okay, cool, Siri found it... Now off to Youtube and a search for Bertysolo!!

and another............


I can see this might lead down a rabbit hole of music......

Anyway, one of the other sites that I also happened upon was this one:

 " Behind Closed Doors Urbex"  

You can get lost spending time searching that site for sure!

Now back to reality,

It's a beautiful and sunny morning here which I know is the "Calm before the storm".


We are in the 6" to 12" range of snow that is forecast for tonight. This season, up to now, has

basically been snow free in our area. There's no trace of any snow at all, as you can see above.

More coffee is brewing and the last few preps need to be done. I already have plenty of bread 

and milk and beer of course. :) 

New England winters are what they are and for years and years I have had the privilege

of shoveling, snowblowing and plowing . As I get older, any storm that requires me to pull out 

the snowblower, feels like this :

Once I'm done though, I do enjoy the snow and winter.

 ( As long as the power stays on ).

Largest Ever Recorded Great White Shark Recently Spotted Off The Coast of Hawaii

Ocean Ramsey swimming with Deep Blue in photos shot by Juan Oliphant after it was spotted in the water off Oahu on Sunday by Kimberly Jeffries. Deep Blue became an icon several years ago during Shark Week on the Discovery Channel, through her remarkable size and age. She is 20 feet long and thought to be 50 years old. Pictures show the pair getting remarkably close to the deadly animal

Divers could identify her as 'Deep Blue' thanks to a tag she was implanted with when she appeared off the coast of Mexico two decades ago.

Her name is "Deep Blue". She is over 20' long and weighs better than 2.5 tons. She was tagged two decades ago. She was recently seen off the coast of Oahu. Read the entire story HERE. She is nearly as big as the fictitious shark in the 1975 movie "Jaws". Below is the "you're gonna need a bigger boat" scene.

 We wake up in a smaller box that is part of a larger box.

Depending on the routine, we will enter another smaller box for a time then proceed to 
another smaller box where there is an even smaller box that is cold.

We take nourishment from smaller boxes, then head back to the second box to stand
in another smaller box to be washed with water that comes from a smaller box partially 
buried in the ground upon which our larger box is built. 

Once the morning routine is done we leave our larger box and proceed to enter an aerodynamic
box that then joins hundreds or thousands of other various boxes going to ten of thousands 
of large boxes where we spend all day toiling.

Then we get back in our small aerodynamic box, commute with all the other boxes and return 
to "our" box.

There, we enter and head to the box with the small cold box and get boxes of nourishment. Some are placed in a small box that gets hot. 

Some will retire after this,and for a bit, sit in another box and watch a small flat box
that tells us what to think and how to be.

After a time, we return again to the box that has the smaller box with hot water. Then off
to the original box to sleep.

No wonder I want to spend most weekends in the woods.
