    Today’s painting is a very interesting 1910 vision of future flight by the artist G.A. Coffin

    Gil, here are the final 4 paintings for the little guy. One is a redo of a prior post you said he liked with improved colors.

    I could not read the signatures on the 1st two, the 3rd is the William Aylward redo, and the 4th is by NC Wyeth. I hope they bring a smile to the little guy’s face πŸ™‚

  7. These guys were unbelievably Satanist. Like for real. Laurel Canyon, Charles Manson, John Paul Jones Satanist. Anton Lavey, Aliester Crowley Satanist. They literally worshipped the Devil.

    They were really good in the studio, too. Like The Eagles.

    ELO had backward masking on the beginnings of their albums. Fully available on YouTube. “We give our souls to Satan for the music” sort of talk.

    The funny thing about Satanism is that it wouldn’t exist without Christianity. Totally dependent upon Christ and the Cross.

  10. Having escaped war-torn Somalia to come to America, was she grateful to live in a nation of peace and prosperity? No. She says upon arrival in America, she was confronted with β€œmy otherness” as a Muslim and black. She and her family were granted asylum, and her first impression is the β€œotherness” she feels? She is exactly the kind of immigrant we do not need — a perfect ingrate.

    She was barely sworn in as a citizen when her resentment surfaced. β€œI think back to the [citizenship] orientations I went through a little over 20 years ago,” says Omar. β€œ…they did not have people who were homeless… There was an America where prosperity was guaranteed…,” She added, β€œI wasn’t comfortable with that hypocrisy.”

    She should have failed her citizenship test. In America, it is up to each individual to make the most of our gifts and abilities. Our Constitution secures our God-given freedom and fundamental rights. No one is β€œguaranteed” prosperity.

    Indeed. Make yourself, woman. Don’t demand we give you our money. Make it. You have that freedom, here. We don’t care if you’re playing bass in a band or making cakes. Just make yourself. Freedom doesn’t involve you coming here and demanding we give you sh^&.

    • Imagine if I moved to Japan with a white American family, and demanded that they all call us Japanese people?

      How many decibals would the laughter be? Exactly how loud?

      Guess what, Somalis in Minnesota? You’re Somalis. In Minnesota. Not Americans. Your great-great-great grandchildren won’t be Americans, either. They’ll be Somalis, living in America. Just like my great-great-great grandchildren in Japan will be Americans, living in Japan, and never Japanese people.

      I am considered a whacko for espousing these truths, on most of the internet,

      Sad, and true.

      As to the one who is “uncomfortable in her otherness” there is a simple solution go where you are comfortable, don’t let the door hit you on the bitt on your way out.

    • “More beautiful than anything I have in my home.”

      That’s high praise.

      I sent my mom a link to what is now my desktop background (a winter pic Stella posted a couple of weeks ago), and she texted that she had to catch her breath when she saw it.

      It’s one of those that need to be matted, put under glass, and framed, and hung on a wall.

      I have a program called Desktop OK. It deletes your mouse in n seconds, then deletes all your desktop icons in n more seconds. All you see is your desktop wallpaper, like a work of art, with no computery stuff cluttering it up. For years mine has been something Stella or one of you have posted. I am thankful for this program, and for your aesthetics.

    Emmy Tries Bull TESTICLES For The 1st Time – Rocky Mountain Oyster Recipe & Taste Test


  16. I just wonder who the genius was who figured out if you cut the nuts off of a bull, he becomes more meaty and sells for more. How did someone figure this out?

    Liked by 1 person

    • When I worked a farm in NH, we had an Elastrator. No cutting. It looked like a gun, only when you pulled the trigger, it greatly widened an elastic band at the end of four levers. When you released the trigger, the whole band shrank to no size, and you could remove the device. Poor cows. In a couple of days, their nuts just drop to the ground.

      Until now, i didn’t realize it was so they could be more meaty.

      I’m not even mad about it. I think it’s a great idea.

      I always thought that the castration was breeding-control. I never knew it made more meat.


      • stella says:

        If a bull isn’t kept for breeding, it become a steer, then beef. It only takes one bull to service a whole herd of cows.

        In the old days, at least one calf was killed while still nursing in order to provide the enzyme (rennet) for making cheese. I don’t know, but I think they use artificial enzymes now. ADD: Here’s the answer:

        Limited supplies of calf rennet have prompted genetic engineering of microbial chymosin by cloning calf prochymosin genes into bacteria. Bioengineered chymosin may be involved in the production of up to 70% of cheese products. While the use of bioengineered enzymes spares the lives of calves, it presents ethics issues for those opposed to eating foods prepared with GEMs.

      Eating beef has been around for many thousands of years. If they had cattle, maybe the ancient Sumerians, since they invented so many things. Or maybe the Spaniards when they brought their cattle to the new world…or the Brits on the east coast.

      Perhaps the Chinese since they were the first or among the first to have slave eunuchs who were physically and politically powerful…check out this interesting article…having NOTHING to do with bull balls…

    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.

    and do you, O prince of the heavenly host,

    who prowl about the world for the ruin of souls.
