    Finally Friday all. It’s been quite a first week, if I do say so myself. President Trump playin’ whack-a-mole with the lamestream media. They’re gonna be so tired by Memorial Day it won’t even be funny. Last day of our work-week, so coffee up y’all. πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€

      Is this porch a fully enclosed four seasons sun room? I (few friends) installed a few years back a full sunroom, heated tile floor, gable roof, now my porch opens into the dining room. On a cold winter or hot summer day that’s where I enjoy my morning coffee…..

        Nope. This is small, very small. They took out the screens and installed 4 track vinyl windows… Considering that there are only 3ish seasons here, with a good heater you could sit out… We might put in a small gas heater. We had a 4 seasons sunroom in NY with the bent glass top that looked like a greenhouse… It was something like 6 x 18 we called it the Atrium Lounge, we had our bar there…. sweet memories. πŸ™‚

    Good morning all! A lot going on today, but then in the new age of President Trump we will be hard pressed just to keep up!

    Big on the news front are the March for Life in Washington DC, and the joint press conference between President Trump and Prime Minister May. We will cover both.

    On the personal front, I am waiting for my Fed Ex delivery of Honeybells from Florida. It’s on the truck for delivery and will be here any time now! A few rays of sunshine.

    I’ve been sitting here looking at a small article on the Chinese Dongfeng mobile nuke ICBM, same one I mentioned China had deployed to the Russian border.
    The Dongfeng is remarkably similar to the Russian Topol system, a system that they would use a lot to send us a message. We would constantly be looking at overheads of their depot areas to see if they were in garrison or had been deployed. If they were out it was almost impossible to counter them and where their primary purpose was defensive they could be used for a first strike. Sending them out was a sign the Kremin was unhappy.
    The US was going to develop its own mobile ststem, the Midgetman to those who remember, but even that was to be deployed in a rather limited area, while Russian and Chinese systems can go by road or by rail. Midgetman was killed by progskis even though we had solid intel that the Russians, broke as they were, were continuing to develop the Topol series and the Chinese were working hard on the Dongfeng. Both countries were also developing, thanks to US technology, their own GPS satellite systems that could be used for targeting.
    Now the international progs have us with a defensive land-based deterrent system whose positions have been public knowledge for decades, an aging air attack system and SLBMs that Russia and China are working hard to neutralize. They are both working hard to make their systems stronger, harder to deal with and deadlier while we’re wallowing in denial.
    I would say to watch for China to develop scary space-based weapons systems, they have so much of our space technology they won’t have to play much catchup, that’ll make Russia nervous too. Trump’ll have problems setting programs in place that will live long enough to withstand not only Rat intransigence in keeping us paramount, but the building international pressure from ‘friends’ and foe alike. They smell our national weakness and are gathering to exploit it.

    Holy Cow. It’s been a busy week, but today I feel like I am hanging on to a speeding train going downhill at breakneck speed. I was trying to watch the march, and then the meeting with PM May broke in, and I thought there were some things I could get done today. On FOX they are talking about so many different things that the POTUS has done this week I am dizzy. O_o

    An elderly couple had dinner at another couple’s house, and after eating, the wives left the table and went into the kitchen.
    The two gentlemen were talking, and one said, ‘Last night we went out to a new restaurant and it was really great. I would recommend it very highly.’
    The other man said, ‘What is the name of the restaurant?’
    The first man thought and thought and finally said, ‘What’s the name of that flower you give to someone you love? You know, the one that’s red and has thorns.’
    ‘Do you mean a rose?’
    ‘Yes, that’s the one,’ replied the man. He then turned towards the kitchen and yelled, ‘Rose, what’s the name of that restaurant we went to last night?’

    A little old man shuffled slowly into an ice cream parlour and pulled himself slowly, painfully, up onto a stool… After catching his breath, he ordered a banana split.
    The waitress asked kindly, ‘Crushed nuts?’
    ‘No,’ he replied, ‘Arthritis.’

    Morris, an 82 year-old man, went to the doctor to get a physical.
    A few days later, the doctor saw Morris walking down the street with a gorgeous young woman on his arm.
    A couple of days later, the doctor spoke to Morris and said, ‘You’re really doing great, aren’t you?’
    Morris replied, ‘Just doing what you said, Doc: ‘Get a hot mamma and be cheerful.”
    The doctor said, ‘I didn’t say that.. I said, ‘You’ve got a heart murmur; be careful.’

    Trying to discern the unique stupidity of EU, U.S. Congress, EU media. Reading article on Infosecurity referencing Pres Trump’s EO re: immigration, EU has assumed the EO also includes data of EU citizens. “This raised fears that European citizens’ data stored by large US multinationals in America could be at risk from prying from agencies including the NSA and FBI.” (sigh)

    Reading further, “…the US Congress adopted a new law last year, the US Judicial Redress Act, which extends the benefits of the US Privacy Act to Europeans and gives them access to US courts.” This law goes into effect 1 Feb.

    Article’s conclusion – “…the Trump administration’s β€˜America First’ policies could yet jeopardize the data sharing agreement.”
    Article – https://www.infosecurity-magazine.com/news/trump-order-sparks-privacy-shield/

    I may be crazy, but at least I’m not stupid. Sure miss IT. ‘Puters only do what you tell ’em to do. And some hackers are (/were) the good guys stay cool

    50 years ago today, Grissom, White and Chaffee perished in a fire in the pre-launch of Apollo 1. Their courage and bravery, and those of the men who followed them, sparked a renaissance in scientific understanding that continue to reap spin off benefits today. Perhaps we will be blessed again to have a nation, and an administration, that is willing to take big risks for unknown rewards.
    RIP gentlemen. Thank you for your service to our Nation.
