    Persons living in northern Michigan are well aware that the Great Lakes have a profound impact on local weather patterns. Examples include heavy lake effect snows in winter, and cooling lake breezes in summer. As the end of the summer season approaches, another type of unique Great Lakes weather phenomena is possible — the waterspout. The following photo is of a waterspout over the Great Lakes.

    Today I listened to just about every YouTube version of WHAT ARE YOU DOING NEW YEAR’S EVE? Narrowed it down to one male (Art Lund), and one doo-wop…


    Ward (1921-2002) was a child musical prodigy, winning an award for a piano composition at the age of 14. [3] Following military service with the Coast Guard Artillery Choir, he studied music in Chicago, and at the Juilliard School of Music in New York…

    Frankly, I’d never heard of Art Lund before and his voice is really good. Lund (1915-1990) was a baritone lead singer in the Benny Goodman Orchestra in the early 1940’s and then rejoined after serving with the Navy in the South Pacific in World War II. In addition to his work with the King of Swing, he sang and recorded with bandmaster and trumpet king Harry James. He also created the role of Joey, the foreman, in the 1956 Broadway musical ”The Most Happy Fella.” Lund earned five gold records for songs that included ”Blue Skies,” My Blue Heaven” and ”Mam’selle.”

    Honorable mentions: Johnny Mathis, Ella Fitzgerald and Dick Haymes/Les Paul–which I’m posting at CTH.

    Most of you have probably already seen this but just wow. The NewDemocrats are certifiably crazy. If this cat doesn’t already have a diagnosed psychiatric disorder (I’m guessing that he does not) then logically we can trace his incarnation to the Clinton/Waters/Obama/Lemon/Anderson/Acosta/A.Ryan/P.Ryan/Pelosi/Schumer font of evil disinformation.

    ****Warning ****Lots of Language*******

    Second video from Ian Furgeson, happy that he put they out there immediately afterward and took away the MSM’s counterpunch. “I’m a 5 time felon. A convict.”. Ian has definite skills of lowering his own temperature in the face of a lunatic.

    Well there is a second video where Ian goes to a second Xhale Vape store and has a little chat with a liberal who doesn’t lose her mind. It’s on facebook but I can’t get a copy to post here.

      I’d like to know what the guy in the Trump shirt said before he started filming. Something had already happened that aggravated the guy behind the counter.You can tell by what they both said in the exchange.

        I think the Trump supporter (Ian) simply had on a Trump T-shirt and hat. Ian said as soon as his camera was running something like, it started out well, he greeted me, but then he saw my Trump shirt and told me he wouldn’t sell to me.

        Ian wouldn’t have walked in filming (to what end?) he’d never had a bad experience at the vape store before. But as soon as Ian was told by the lunatic that he would not sell to him because of his Trump shirt/hat Ian knew he was in a situation.

        I think that it is likely that Ian told the lunatic that he had no choice but to sell to him and it is likely that the unhinged man simply exploded. That is how it looked to me.

        In all honesty I would have handled the situation as Ian did. I would have provoked him once I was videotaping, these lunatics need to be exposed.

        The unhinged lunatic is who the democratic party and MSM is turning its emotional base into, rabid unstable people, a hares breath from violent lunatics.

        People need to know this.

          I totally agree about unhinged people. They are on both sides. The man behind the counter did become off the charts angry. However, we still don’t know what caused his anger in the first place and while it could have been the shirt, I did find it suspect that the filming started after the the initial contact. I also believe the man behind the counter would have spotted that shirt when the guy first came in the store, and would never had been originally nice were that the case. Something is not right about this.

            Respectfully disagree Tessa.

            The unhinged man was refusing to sell to Ian, he was threatening to call the cops on Ian, in his phone call to someone the unhinged man does not mention anything other than he will not sell to a Trump supporter, the black man waiting to make his purchase had no problem with Ian. The salesman could have easily not noticed the Trump attire when Ian first walked in.

            The greeting could have simply been a distracted welcome.

            Ian went to another shop afterward and introduce a young liberal democrat employee to the viewer and said that he and she had no problems with each other. She gave Ian a hug,

                    I’ve no problem with people having different opinions or reads of situations. Especially something like this where we are just sharing opinions.

                    I’m not a Treeper, I left another blog where all people did was fight (I don’t know if that happens at the Tree because I don’t read there, but just from the off comments here it does not sound like a pleasant place to be anymore, which is really a shame.)

                    Thanks for reminding me of this song! Time to put it on my iTunes !

    lilbirdee12’s prayer:

    Our Heavenly Father, Your children come to you tonight to ask for healing and peace throughout our country so that we may return to being One Nation Under God. Guide us to be leaders in Your Kingdom, spreading Your Love and Salvation to all. Forgive us our sins and deliver us from evil.

    Lord, we ask for a blanket of protection over all our troops and law enforcement who serve to defend and protect us. Bless our representatives with the strength and wisdom they need to achieve the path You have chosen for us.

    Please place Your Guardian Angels of Protection around Donald Trump and Mike Pence and their families as they seek to lead America back to You.

    Grant us patience, Lord, as the evil ones try to anger us and cause us to fall.
    Spread blessings over Israel and Netanyahu.

    We humbly ask that You please comfort those who are grieving and in pain.
    Thank you Father, for Your Love and the gift of Life.

    In Jesus name, we pray. Amen.

    A prayer for Justice Kavanaugh and Col. Flynn:

    Prayer to St. Michael

    St. Michael the Archangel, defend us in battle;
    be our defense against the wickedness and snares of the devil.
    May God rebuke him, we humbly pray;
    and do you, O prince of the heavenly host,
    by the power of God,
    thrust into hell Satan and the other evil spirits
    who prowl about the world for the ruin of souls.

    In Jesus name, we pray. Amen.
