    For Saturday night:

    “Lord Jesus, stay with us, for evening is at hand and the day is past; be our companion in the way, kindle our hearts, and awaken hope, that we may know you as you are revealed in Scripture and the breaking of bread. Grant this for the sake of your love. Amen.”
    –Book of Common Prayer–

    For Sunday morning:

    “Lord God, almighty and everlasting Father, you have brought us in safety to this new day: Preserve us with your mighty power, that we may not fall into sin, nor be overcome by adversity; and in all we do, direct us to the fulfilling of your purpose; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.”

    Remember the 94-year old female WW II Navy vet who was beaten back in December in a South Side Chicago robbery? She out of thebhospital, feeling better and the hospital/ambulance companies have decided to adjust their rediculous charges. Latest scoop is here:

    On the idiocy of WaPo, and everyone else in the entire photograph:

    Literally everybody in the photo is an idiot. And everyone in the building where they print stuff. And the person with the camera. And the people with the lights and those big umbrella things they use. Everyone involved. They’re all idiots.

    Morning Figments!
    25F here in Myrtle Beach.. the weather people are calling it bitter cold. I covered two plants.. the rest are on their own.. Yesterday we had a kinda storm, and I think I might have seen two snowflakes. This morning I took my sweet old dog out, then she practically scurried back to the house on her own… (she doesn’t actually run any more) Hope everyone stays warm and safe.

    Good morning Stella, crew,
    43 today with loads of rain. Yay. We need it. Snow was a blast yesterday, more the consistency of a dry Slurpee. Wicked heavy snowballs but highly throwable and accurate.
    Darn if my Raiders didn’t get whupped, guess they were tired of winning. On the other hand, I am not.

    Have a great day out there across America!

    Lloyd Marcus on AT today:

    If Obama had a dad, he would look a lot like Lloyd Marcus. Yeah, I went there.

    Marcus is an amazing man.

      FTA: Will this horrific incident of blacks torturing a disabled white man cause the left to abandon lying, sowing seeds of hate, fear, and violence? Quite the opposite. The left is fast and furiously seeking new ways to broadcast their seeds of destruction to greater audiences. This is the satanic evil we are dealing with folks.

      He was never one to mince words, or beat around the bush.

        Yeah, I know about that. CA makes one more giant leap down the slippery slope of degrading legal pronouncements.

          Slippery slope? Downward spiral? We were told that wasn’t the case!

          CA doesn’t have too many things left to legalize.

          What’s next to be legalized in CA? Place your bets, folks:

          – Animal prostitution and/or marriage

          – Slavery

          – Kidnapping and torture

          – Cannibalism

          That’s about all that remains on their menu.


        • Wooly Phlox says:

          Remember when the proto-alt-right, thirty years ago, said that gay marriage was a slippery slope? And the left said we were full of it?

          Yeah, we were right. As always.

    There’s a lot of good threads over next door. I hardly recognize anyone, but since the election ended, discussion seems to have got more sane and witty, again. Finally.

    Sure, there’s still almost half-a-thousand comments per thread still — Go Sundance! — and I wouldn’t want to be a moderator even for cash money and hookers and blow — but normalcy seems to be returning to the CTH.

    “I decided to have eggs for breakfast this morning right after Putin called telling me to have eggs for breakfast. Now just settin by the phone, can’t wait to find out what I’m ;sposed to do next.”

    LOL @ AT commenters & Ed Straker.

    This year, Iowahawk can be himself again. So can zombie.

    Satire is back, folks. It’s been a long 8 years.

    • Wooly Phlox says:

      The comments on this new song are a wonderful window into today’s youth, and into the world, and most of them give me hope.

      I’m almost 46, and the comments bring me back almost as much as the song.

      Ed Sheeran is back with a new album soon, he just released 2 tracks, but I hope he dials it back, and doesn’t become another George Michael or Whitney Houston.

      I love a lot of new, current music, and will always be looking for it. Some artists will live to their 70s, making great music because that’s their goal. Some will seek fame instead.

      I like to guess. Is this artist, who is rising fast, going to become a great musician for a long, long time? Or are they going to become a pop star and then burn out or die?

      I think Sheeran’s going to go the distance, and screw fame.


    • Wooly Phlox says:

      And when I say “go the distance”, I don’t mean “become an ancient, doddering propped-up sycophant for a political party” like so many old rockers today have done.

      Hi, James Taylor! Hi Bruce Springsteen! You’ll never be Bobby McFerrin or Chick Corea! and Hilary Clinton will never be President!
