    I saw this tweet, cracked up super hard, and thought of Bob. Bob? I don’t know why, but here you go.

    Thanks for the laughs, Nerdy Wonk! I especially liked the Ramos girl’s “Arizona was probably home schooled.” Obviously this does not include DF and all the wonderful TOD people in Arizona. I’ve been nudging DF to think about moving to CA.

      Love, if I could afford to move to CA I would already be there! When that day comes, and it will, you’ll see me with a big smile on my face. Happy to see you, and sanity

        DF, you are right about the cost of living in CA. When that time comes we will welcome you with open arms.

          Thank you ! I’d settle for a small shack close to the beach:) kidding…. Only it dreams . What I have now would be way out of my price range on CA… I’d have to downsize to a tent or something

            “Thank you ! I’d settle for a small shack close to the beach.”

            How close? Is 30-45 minutes drive to the beach close enough? Here in SD, the prices for all the places very close to beach is prohibitive.

        Thank you very much, Bro! The surprise and excitement of seeing me name at the top almost sent me to the coffin. I hope all is well with you in your frozen tundra. From what I read here, you folks are having a crazy and tough winter.

            You are so right! We certainly could use some of your snow and rain to deal with the terrible draught we are going through.

              If only there were some way we could pack-up some of this snow and ship it to you folks. Now there’s a pipeline that folks wouldn’t gripe about, I bet. Dump snow in and get water out.

                I sent you my e-mail address! If you didn’t get it let me know. I would definitely love to hear from you. I am sure I will like everything you share with me. You obviously already know how I deeply appreciate everything (music, humor, history, personal experience and words of wisdom) you share with us at TOD.

      Wasn’t it John McCain’s campaign manager that also was some sort of advisOr for the Country Georgia? I was always suspicious of the eruption between Russia and Georgia towards the end of that campaign. It seemed like an October Surprise kind of move to me. John McCain polled having more confidence in the foreign relations category. His manager had Georgia as a client. The International skirmish occurred at an opportune time for McCain. I remember that it happened prior to Senator Obama choosing his VP and that Biden made a trip to Georgia to de-escalate the situation. I also remember Hillary’s advisor also advising some S American Country.

    Why isn’t Gov. Christie attending the Governors Dinner tomorrow night at the WH.? I don’t care if he doesn’t attend.

      Maybe he is keeping his distance from POTUS, he don’t want the only people who is supporting him to see him in a picture with POTUS. You know how those racists righties are.

    • 59 99ts
      February 22, 2014 at 8:49 pm

      He’s somewhere else raising money for the GOP – they like people like Christie who ignore democracy and lead via favors to those who support the party and hit hard on those who do not.

    Good evening TODville. Thanks for the laughs NW!!! We need them right now. We are preparing for a winter storm. They say we could get anywhere between 8-24″ of snow tomorrow.

    I have been inside flipping thru the channels and I found this wonderful series called “Dancing on the Edge” it’s about the Louis Lester Band in England in the 30’s. There are 5 1hr shows at the end of the series they interview the real members of the band. Has anyone here heard of this band? I am in the 3rd of the 5 show series.

    “Even long time activists, who have seen their stately capital Kyiv rapidly cross-hatched with barricades and lines of burning tires, are stunned by the changes that have transformed the city over the past 48 hours.

    Gone—almost—is the tension. There are grim reminders everywhere of battles just ended and the deaths of close to 100 demonstrators: blood still visible amid the debris of fortifications; cases of Molotov cocktails; the pervasive smell of soot.

    But the police and security forces have simply melted away, leaving the scarred centre of Kyiv entirely in the hands of protesters and ordinary people.

    Remarkably, there is no triumphal violence and looting, or even disorder. Traffic flow is maintained by volunteers, as is security in and out of major public spaces. Medical care, along with food and drink, is provided free of charge. Volunteers sweep garbage from highway curbs. It feels as though the regular political hierarchy has been replaced by a collective revolutionary one. Drivers at intersections obey young men wearing haphazard uniforms and helmets not because they are afraid of them, but because they believe in them, and want this experiment in self-government to work.”

      • February 22, 2014 at 8:58 pm

        Worthwhile perspectives ….

        ” Out of Hell, a new hope for a proud people

        Like many of you, our friends, my wife and I have been literally rooted to our chairs as we watched events in our beloved Ukraine roll out, ever since those terrible days in Kyiv last November when Ukrainians began to die because of the brutality of Yanukovych’s Berkut. Since then, many, many more innocents have sacrificed themselves to protest injustice, tryanny and corruption. Ukrainians have been incredibly brave throughout all this. They have withstood freezing cold, Militia attacks, titushki beatings, kidnappings, torture, murder, Berkut Molotov cocktails and finally, an ultimate horror, the cold-blooded, merciless snipers of their own government’s security forces …

        Clip

        “One little known fact most Americans are not aware of is that Ukraine’s 40 million citizens legally possess more than 2 million private firearms: 400,000 of them are in Kyiv alone. And yet, even in the face of murderous provocation and killings by the police and Berkut, very few of those privately owned firearms were ever raised in anger, even against their tormentors: the ratio of citizens killed to police casualties was over 10 to 1. It tells us that Ukrainians are a people possessing extraordinary restraint and respect for life, because if every private gun in Ukraine had been fired in anger, the dead would be in the many thousands by now. But Ukrainians are not ordinary people. With few exceptions, they are gentle, friendly, kind, loving and welcoming to strangers. They understand firsthand what it is like to suffer at the hands of others. In short, Ukrainians define what it means to be a civilized people. They paid for this label with the endurance and restraint they demonstrated even as they suffered injustice after injustice.”

      Thank you Bob for keeping us informed about the situation in the Ukraine for months, long before the msm (as usual late and incomplete) starting mentioning it because they were so concerned with Justin B. and Miley C. These days the national media seems to get its info. from blogs and twitter. In this new information age they have never been first or accurate about anything of import like the Arab Spring and the euromaiden crisis. You and others have been a life-line to those in other countries who are fighting for freedom and dignity. I really appreciate all that you do to make the world a better place. Information, getting the story out, and enlisting aid for freedom’s cause is an ambassador’s role that you beautifully uphold.

    “Sunday 23 February 2014
    This crisis is about what’s best for Ukraine, not Russia

    …. We must remember that this crisis began in November, when President Yanukovych walked away from an agreement with Europe that would have granted Ukraine access to the EU’s single market. Given the desire of the Ukrainian people to seek closer ties with Europe, it would be wrong for the EU to close the door on that possibility. Despite the current uncertainty, the high-level EU team of mediators, including the French, German, and Polish foreign ministers, should stay engaged, and should try to work with all sides to prevent a further flare-up of violence as events develop on the ground.

    The UK government has had a noticeably low profile as the crisis unfolded. But we must recognise that the number of people killed in Ukraine last week is a tragic expression of the gravity of the crisis. The streets of Kiev have revealed a geopolitical fault line between Russia and the West.

    President Obama was right to say that Ukraine can no longer be seen as part of a “Cold War chess board”. More than 20 years after the Berlin Wall fell we should not see a new era of 20th-century satellite states take hold on the 21st-century European continent. President Putin is known for his zero-sum approach to foreign affairs – but what happens in Ukraine cannot just be about judging what makes sense for Russia. It must be about what works for the people of Ukraine.”

      Mr. Bobfr, thank you for keeping us informed here on what is going on in Ukraine. The death of so many people is heartfelt. Our President knows what to say in crucial times here and foreign countries as well. I am grateful.

    Hello TOD!
    Watching the N.A.A.C.P. Image Awards.
    This makes me so proud because it is a time when you feel love and not tension. But most importantly you feel the artists are glad to be there not competing with each other only glad to acknowledge their professions and what hard work, determination and sacrifice it took to get there. It is one time when I feel they do not need the validation of the Acadamey Award!

    Watching house of cards… Not sure if I like this show because it seems to have a heavy anti-Union bias. Is the main character supposed to be a democrat? If so Kevin Spacey isn’t as good of an actor as I thought.

    Time is like a river.
    You cannot touch the water twice, because the flow that has passed will never pass again. Enjoy every moment of life. As a Bagpiper, I play many gigs. Recently I was asked by a funeral director to play at a graveside service for a homeless man. He had no family or friends, so the service was to be at a pauper’s cemetery in the Nova Scotia back country.

    As I was not familiar with the backwoods, I got lost and, being a typical man, I didn’t stop for directions.

    I finally arrived an hour late and saw the funeral guy had evidently gone and the hearse was nowhere in sight. There were only the diggers and crew left and they were eating lunch. I felt badly and apologized to the men for being late. I went to the side of the grave and looked down and the vault lid was already in place. I didn’t know what else to do, so I started to play.

    The workers put down their lunches and began to gather around. I played out my heart and soul for this man with no family and friends. I played like I’ve never played before for this homeless man. And as I played “Amazing Grace”, the workers began to weep. They wept, I wept, we all wept together. When I finished, I packed up my bagpipes and started for my car. Though my head was hung low, my heart was full.

    As I opened the door to my car, I heard one of the workers say, “I never seen nothing like that before and I’ve been putting in septic tanks for twenty years.”

    Apparently I’m still lost… :lol:

Bob is one of the people who make TOD such an enlightening place. Bob’s knowledge of the world, combined with his wisdom and his fearless passion for justice and humanity inspires me so much.
