A Silent Cry For Help

When words fail to convey the atrocities being committed against nature and mankind by man, the pictures show the hopelessness and the suffering and should end the speculation how large the oil spill disaster has become and the wide spread effects should leave one with chills on the future of our planet.

So You Like Your Nacho Cheese Doritos, Do You?

From the good people at Men's Health-Eat This, Not That

Read on and maybe think about it.....
Click on title for link


What's Really In … NACHO CHEESE DORITOS
NACHO CHEESE DORITOS (11 chips)
150 calories
8 g fat (1.5 g saturated)
180 mg sodium

The concept is, well, sort of brilliant: Nachos and cheese without the hassle of a microwave. Or even a plate, for that matter. You just tear open the bag and start snarfing. And as a parting gift, Dorito's leave your fingers sticky with something that looks like radioactive bee pollen. Now here's the question: Do you have any clue what's in that stuff? Here you go:

To create each Dorito, the Frito-Lay food scientists draw from a well of 39 different ingredients. How many does it take to make a regular tortilla chip? About three. That means some 36 ingredients wind up in that weird cheese fuzz. Of those 36, only two are ingredients you'd use to make nachos at home: Romano and cheddar cheeses. Alongside those are a cache of empty carbohydrate fillers like dextrin, maltodextrin, dextrose, flour, and corn syrup solids. Then come a rotating cast of oils. Depending on what bag you get, you might find any combination of corn oil, soybean oil, cottonseed oil, and sunflower oil. Some of those will be partially hydrogenated, meaning they give the chip a longer shelf life and spike your heart with a little shot of trans fat. (The reason you won't see this on the nutrition label is that FDA guidelines allow food manufacturers to "round down" to zero.)

And then, after the fats and nutritionally empty starches, there's a seasoning blend, which includes things like sugar, "artificial flavoring," and a rather worrisome compound called monosodium glutamate. Monosodium glutamate, or MSG, is the flavor enhancer largely responsible for the chip's addicting quality. The drawback is that it interferes with the production of an appetite-regulating hormone called leptin. A study of middle-aged Chinese people found a strong correlation between MSG consumption and body fat. What's more, the FDA receives new complaints every year from people who react violently to MSG, suffering symptoms like nausea, headaches, burning sensation, numbness, chest pains, dizziness, and so on. Talk about radioactive bee pollen.

Should I Be Thinking?

Sometimes as one jumps from blog to blog, I feel or get a sense of wondering and questioning of one's self. The inevitable why am I here? What is my purpose in life? Is there an afterlife?

I do not think this is a dress rehearsal, this is it. The test comes first, but it is an open book test. Millions of people have done it before you, know matter what you try to do. Most plan more for a vacation than the rest of their life. To be fair, two weeks is easier to grasp than forty or fifty years. So you can sit around and contemplate life, make sure you try your best, no matter how it works out, be satisfied.


or you can heed the words of the great philosopher Homer who once said

My Pain Is Hiding, For Now.......

I had suffered knee damage to my right knee on April 13th. I was on crutches for almost 2 months. I had written about it in this post, Do You Feel My Pain, about what I was going through. I know for many, it pales in comparison, and that was not my intent. It was just to express what I was going through. The chronic pain seems to be in remission now, and I am currently in therapy to bring back my strength in my knee. I am trying to make sure that it stays pain free. I know deep down inside, it will be back. My meniscus is torn and I have advanced arthritis in both knees.

 It is waitng for the right moment. tick tock, tick tock.

The Oil Spill is Here, But the Effect is Worldwide

This picture is an overhead picture of the Gulf of Mexico, taken by a satellite camera.


Tsk, Tsk, what a shame people say, as they read about the continuing story of the oil spill here in the states.  How sad. It is a good thing it is not happening over here.

Oh really? This is just the latest chapter in the gutting and destruction of our oceans. Drilling in the ocean is a world wide issue. There are literally thousands and thousand of rigs around the world being used to supply the crude to satisfy the thirst for oil which is insatiable and never ending.

Ocean currents move around the world in an endless cycle. The Gulf stream currents wrap all away around the state of Florida, up the coast of the USA, bringing its warm waters across to England keeping the brutal winters at bay.  It is not in your back yard yet , world, but it will be over time.

Over here, we have a hurricane season. It started on June 1st, and though so far things have been quiet, it has been predicted to be a very busy season. A storm will pick up the oil floating on the top of the water and deposit hundreds or thousands of miles away.






Fresh water everywhere, farmland, crops, animals and people will be effected.  Businesses that have been around for generations in the area have closed up for good. Tourism has slowed already, some areas have shut down, people have lost jobs, This is turning into an economic disaster and is only beginning.

The oceans are being destroyed. There are dead zones in the water, caused by pollution that robs all the oxygen, destroying the eco system, the chain of life needed to sustain life on the planet. Huge floating piles of plastic garbage, floating unseen from land, dumping of waste into our drinking water, destroying ground water, aquifers that millions of years to develop, being sucked dry. This is man's legacy, the destruction of our planet.

I read a report once upon a time that stated that 80% of our world's population would have to go away because there is way too many people on the planet of ours with our finite resources to have any sustainability for continued life on this planet. It appears we are well on our way.


Comforting, isn't?

Right Now!

Sometimes, when you have a quiet moment, you might think about all the good and the bad things happening in this world. Yes, whatever you are thinking of, it is happening right now. This video by Van Halen touches on some of it. Nicely done guys, another favorite group of mine. Give it a listen.

A Soulful Rendition of the Star Spangled Banner!

If you don't find yourself clapping in time at the end with the crowd, tapping your feet, swaying in time with Marvin Gaye during his singing of our national anthem, something must be wrong! A star of the times, impeccably dressed,a soulful rendition by Marvin, you notice the fans slowly get in the groove during the song.

A Quick Look At Why Guys Love Fast Cars! Muscle Cars Rule!

Who is funding the Tea Bag Party?

Comment

There seems to be a group of outraged voters across the country who are rallying up against the politics of the Democrats and a few Republicans.  They are organized, bringing candidates to run for office, and so on.

Where is the money coming from? Who is funding the group and controlling the action?

Pardon my suspicion, but most groups of people have trouble agreeing on a block garage sale or a picnic, let alone on a nationwide political movement.

Not unlike the large protests in Florida for the recount of the votes back in 2004, the Gore/Bush fiasco, which was found to have undercover agents stirring up trouble, something stinks about this.

Show me the money trail and you will find the usual starting point.

P.S.
Tea bagging also has a descriptive sexual connotation. They might want to change their name?

The Man That Defined Suave And Cool, oh and the car too!


Sean Connery set the standard for cool with the movies Goldfinger and Thunderball.  Guys wanted to be like him. Women wanted to be with him.  He could handle any situation and so could the car! 







LONDON (Reuters) - James Bond's 1964 Aston Martin DB5, dubbed by auto auctioneers RM Auctions on Tuesday as the "world's most famous car," will go under the hammer in London in October and is expected to fetch over $5 million.
It is the first time the distinctive silver-colored car has been available to the public to buy.
It is one of two, and the sole remaining, of the original "007" DB5s that appeared on screen with Sean Connerybehind the wheel in "Goldfinger" and " Thunderball ," RM Auctions said in a statement.
The model comes complete with its "Q-Branch" gadgets including machine guns, bullet-proof shield, revolving number plates, tracking device, removable roof panel, oil slick sprayer, nail spreader and smoke screen.
Several of the gadgets are fully operational, although the machine guns are not real.
The car is being sold by U.S. radio broadcaster Jerry Lee, who convinced the Aston Martin Lagonda factory to sell it for $12,000 in 1969, becoming its first and only ex-factory owner.
It has remained in his possession and has rarely been seen publicly over the past 40 or so years. Lee plans to use the proceeds from the sale for the Jerry Lee Foundation.
It will be auctioned on October 27.

A clip from Goldfinger, golf of course!
and the car, what about the car?

What I thought of in 1965!

There is kind of an unspoken rule when blogging, don't admit how old you are. Too bad. We all get old along with everything that goes with it. Never the less.....

This album came out in 1965. Trust me on this one boys and girls, this picture collectively filled many thoughts and minds of all the young men in school that have lingered on forever.  The main song was A Taste of Honey.

The demise of vinyl albums accompanied the death of the wonderful and creative album art covers. Was it the music or the cover?

Click on the title for more information.
A video from 1966




Later in 1979 another hit called Rise!
