On this day: 13 Jan 2005
A report showed that more songs had been written about Elvis Presley than any other artist. It listed over 220 songs including: ‘Graceland’ by Paul Simon, ‘A Room At The Heartbreakhotel’ by U2, ‘Calling Elvis’, Dire Straits, ‘Happy Birthday Elvis’, Loudon Wainwright III, ‘There's A Guy Works Down The Chip Shop Swears He's Elvis’, Kirsty MacColl, ‘I Saw Elvis in a UFO’, Ray Stevens. ‘Elvis Has Left the Building’ by Frank Zappa and 'My Dog Thinks I'm Elvis' by Ray Herndon. via thisdayinmusic.com

Nothing wrong with asking for directions. A tough lesson learned by this Genius Award Winner.

A St. Paul community college student who threatened to “grab a shotgun” and shoot two women in the face when he couldn’t find the right classroom on the first day of school was placed on probation.

Ramsey County District Judge Nicole Starr also sentenced Paul James Mouton to 360 days in jail, but she stayed the execution of the jail-time so long as the 40-year-old remains law abiding during his two-year probation, court records say.

The sentence, which was imposed on one count of gross-misdemeanor level threats of violence, was handed down Wednesday. He pleaded guilty to the count in November.

Wanting to go on a quick trip, this Flatlander thought outside of the box. Tonight's Feel Good Story of The Day.

Tommy Mecher stops to gas up in Wisconsin while traveling from Chicago to Bessemer, Michigan, last weekend. Mecher didn't have a snowmobile trailer and didn't want to pay for the extra gas to tow a trailer on the trip. (Photo: Tommy Mecher)

In what might have been the most Wisconsin thing to pop up on Facebook last week, photos and video of someone driving through the state with a snowmobile strapped to the roof of a car created a bit of a stir.

Turns out it was a guy from Illinois who was too cheap to get a trailer and pay for the extra gas to tow his snowmobile up north.

Bernie Sanders will have the most delegates going into the convention, but not enough for a first ballot. The superdelegates will pick Biden, and then go into hiding after the first debate with Trump.

Beto O'Rourke will run for something, and he will lose.

TV is Unwatchable today.

1. They now add mini informercials (5 minutes long) in the ad packs.
Most of them are for makeup or the "legal helpline" where that idiot lady tells me to sue Johnson and Johnson or Monsanto.

2. They speed up the playback of older tv shows to compress them. They jam in 20 minutes of ads per hour, by my estimation.

3. They do not care when they cut to commercial. It can be, and often is, right in the middle of a climactic scene. No fade out, just an abrupt cut to commercial. And when they come back from commercial, it's the next scene!

I thoroughly disagree. The GOAT is John Riggins, and not just for being the MVP on a Super Bowl winning Redskins team. Riggins gets the nod because he was at some formal Washington D.C. banquet, drunk, and said to Justice Sandra Day O'Connor: "Loosen up, Sandy, baby!" Then he promptly passed out.

As we enter the last year of his first term it may be helpful to reflect on just what the man has gotten done.

This can be done by accessing the web site magapill.com--it's a running compilation of his accomplishments to date.

Trump's European Tariffs Could Be Devastating for the Portland Restaurant Industry

With a new proposed tariff on European wine imports, the entire food scene is facing a disruption of seismic proportions


Key quote:

Dana Frank, the owner of SE Clinton natural wine haven Bar Norman, has similar concerns. "85 percent to 90 percent of our wine sales are European, and I sell pretty much all of our wines at $12 a glass because we want wine to be accessible," she says. "If I have to see wine going to $18 or $20 a glass... who is going to come in and spend that kind of money on wine? [...] I would say that the heart and soul of the bar would be diminished."

Will no one think of the poor people spending $12 for a glass of wine at a Portland wine bar?

Guy said, in a Southern Drawl, 'where'd ya come from'.

I told him, and he said, 'well, ya can't get there from here, ya need to go back from where ya came from'.

Once he explained on a map, he was absolutely correct, it was easier to start over.

I'm having to deal with the aftermath of my accident Saturday when I skit on ice and ran over two sections of the wrought iron fence at work. Oh and the funny thing is they give you a drug test afterwards because it happened going to work. I wonder if that's legit cuz I hadn't really punched in yet.

I hit the brakes leaving the street to enter the grounds driveway and skidded and took out two sections of the fence. Thank God I miss the telephone pole by about 2 ft. Filled out the cops form and talk to insurance but still don't know who's going to have to pay for the fence. What a great way to start 2020.

280 Dana Frank, the owner of SE Clinton natural wine haven Bar Norman, has similar concerns. "85 percent to 90 percent of our wine sales are European, and I sell pretty much all of our wines at $12 a glass because we want wine to be accessible," she says. "If I have to see wine going to $18 or $20 a glass... who is going to come in and spend that kind of money on wine? [...] I would say that the heart and soul of the bar would be diminished."

Oy vey. A couple of things:
- You could eat the cost and keep it nice and "accessible" if you wanted to. Or you could move up-market and go exclusive. You don't. That's fine.
- You could look a bit south and get some fantabulous wines from right here in America. You do know that America has the best wine, right?
- If you want to keep your exclusive foreign pretensions, you could consider some of the increasingly good Australian wines, or consider other international sources. There are many wines from more ethnic parts of the world that you could be promoting, you racist.

The article (in "Portland Eater") is hilarious.

After all, if European wines are blocked from the market due to a tariff, they'll never come back, purely out of spite:

"It's not as though if the U.S. didn't buy the wines, they wouldn't have someone to buy them," says Brian Martin, the import brand manager for Mitchell Wine Group, a local distributor and importer. He shares concerns that Garcia and others have: that once producers find new markets, there would be no incentive to return to the U.S., especially after the uncertainty raised by tariffs. "We would be cut off from wine that would never be back again. Some of it might get back, but the bulk of it never would."

Barbarian!

A common suggestion that restaurant owners have heard lately is to pivot to a greater focus on domestic wines. After all, Oregon wines are definitely a source of pride, and often make their way onto restaurant and bar menus. However, Oregon wineries rely on small, independent companies to handle their distribution. Few of those distributors primarily work with local wines; most rely heavily on European imports for their business. "The distribution chain is going to be threatened," says Scott Frank, owner and winemaker for Bow & Arrow Wines. "It's an ecosystem, and European wines are a keystone species. For most of our distributors, retail shops that carry our wine, and restaurants that do... European wine is the centerpiece that keeps the lights on. Domestic is not the core of anybody's book. It's a small category."

The bartender that posted about it told a story of a customer that asked for two straws and she denied him a second one, because #woke.

She said her guest ate one bite of his food then got pissed off, got up and left.

This goes against anything I've ever known about bartending. The younger generation of west coast people must be unbearable.

There was a "woke" person in Portland who protested in a restaurant , because someone was wearing a "Luftwaffe" t-shirt, which obviously meant that the person was a Nazi. She asked management to throw the guy out.

Dana Frank, the owner of SE Clinton natural wine haven Bar Norman, has similar concerns. "85 percent to 90 percent of our wine sales are European, and I sell pretty much all of our wines at $12 a glass because we want wine to be accessible," she says. "If I have to see wine going to $18 or $20 a glass... who is going to come in and spend that kind of money on wine? [...] I would say that the heart and soul of the bar would be diminished."

Will no one think of the poor people spending $12 for a glass of wine at a Portland wine bar?

435 That touchdown is dubious. I know evidence has to be "incontrovertible"
to reverse the call on the field, but that was super narrow. I want LSU
to win, but that call was iffy for sure.


LSU clearly stepped out of bounds twice on the last drive of the first half.

This game was pre-decided by these willfully-blind West Coast zebra whores.

I caught from age 5 through college, faggit. You couldn't carry my jock strap.
And head back eyes up face mask planted in the center of the chest is form tackling. That's how you get leverage. Shoulder is used when the target is not straight on.

You would think. But first you have to get past the gatekeeper, the Oregon Liquor Control Commission.

He did get success with the Ginger wine.

524 Today, at my Doc's office, I picked up a copy of Rolling Stone. What a truly sad rag. It was a 'Best Of 2019' issue, January, 2020 issue.

It was filled with dozens of reviews of albums. People I certainly have never heard of, but aside from that, the reviews were universally vapid, vacuous, meaningless bullshit.

I did a long paper on the Servant Songs in grad school. It can mean lots of things, but I think primarily, to the Hebrews, it meant that God would never harm the downtrodden. IOW, it could be worse, but not because of Him.

Red Mountain Pass is a challenge, especially in the winter! Most

into Ouray. All we had was the emergency brake and engine. That was
very interesting!

Did that one on the Gold Wing, 1994. The GL-1500 had altitude compensating carburetors, so at least the mixture was right, even if a bit down on power at that altitude.

Still, had plenty of power to pass white knuckle flatlanders. Problem was a lack of suitable stretches of road to see far enough ahead to determine if a pass was feasible, or safe.

That road is called "The Million Dollar Highway". They say it cost a Million Dollars per Mile to build.

Now days, just the guardrails would exceed a million per mile.

But the views are certainly Million Dollar Views. So much so that I'd roll off the throttle, pace behind the white knucklers, and take in the scenery.

One of the most beautiful roads I've ever ridden, and yearn to ride it again.

Yes, the Servants Song is very long, and poetic passage which speaks of the downtrodden and God's desire for justice and truth. I mentioned it because I frequently deal with people who feel broken and bruised and I think it is a word of encouragement in their spiritual life.

Agreed, if actual shoveling is involved. The flat blade, straight handle type is good for pushing snow, but for pitching it the bent handle type with a bit of a scoop on the blade is the way to go.

Yep, you need an entire selection of snow shovels for best results.

Giant flat blade: good for light fluffy stuff, as you said.
Smaller flat blade: same, but for heavier snowfall.
Bent-handle scoop: when the snow needs to be thrown for some distance.
Giant ground-based scoop, the kind that sits flat on the ground and is pushed from behind with both hands: for heavy snowfalls.
Long-handled spade: for breaking up plow berms (a pickax is also useful here).

I think this may be what we call an "ice chipper" locally. I've got a flat one and a semi-circular one. The semi-circular is better on thick/tough ice because it concentrates the force on a smaller area. On the other hand, it's slower than the flat blade, in conditions where the flat blade will do the job.

710 Well, spent the day at the Barrett-Jackson car auction in Scottsdale. Fun day, all in all. Just looked at cars; never registered to bid. First-generation Broncos were everywhere.

Notable sightings: A Batmobile clone, several General Lees, a clone of the Griswold Family Truckster, A Tupolev airboat, a Taylor Aerocar, and The Dred, Owsley Stanley's '49 Studebaker one-ton pickup that was the Grateful Dead's equipment truck for many years. It's one seriously rusty truck.

They had some woman "famous Arizona singer-songwriter" perform the National Anthem; the Emcee gave her a huge buildup, and then she sang so softly and weakly that we could scarcely hear it. Sad.

713 666 Yep, you need an entire selection of snow shovels for best results.

Very apropos for TMOTB.

When I left Chicago forever, I gave away my snow shovels, ice scrapers, calcium chloride etc etc.

Now, on the very rare days it snows on the Gulf Coast, I just stay inside until it melts. And if there is frost on the windshield (also rare) I crank the car and run the heater until it melts.

Retirement has its benefits.

Usually I don't ever see mice. I turn the garage floor into a trap minefield if I even think there is one, and most times the traps just lay there. The most I ever caught was 2, and thats only after I actually saw one, so I knew there was one to be had, and the traps never fail me. I was gone for a week and got home yesterday, so maybe the little bastards are a new arrival.

They generally won't kill each other unless they're starving, but they do eat their dead. Carrion smells attracting predators, or something. Not sure how something with 9 neurons figured that out, but beings with fewer get into Congress...

All rodents do this, as far as I know. It was a great lesson in the circle of life when the hamsters we had in grade school science class ate all their babies. They seemed less cute after that.

Meh. It's NPR. They found some muzzies and Leftards to interview. It's what they do. Myself, I expect that few, if any, of the "canadians" killed on the plane were native-born, and that those who were, they were second-generation Iranians, raised as Iranians. And probably all friendly to the current mullahcracy, since I doubt the regime allows those it perceives to be enemies to come and go freely.

All in all, no loss to Canada, and possibly a net benefit, if any of the goat-fuckers were on welfare.

The one I have is virtually identical to the flat blade, other than blade shape. About a 5-6' handle, like a long shovel.

I'd guess they probably sharpen them up a lot more when they're using them for butchering whales. No point in putting a fine edge on something you're just going to be bashing into concrete.

I was a huge RUSH head, I still am, but not really for anything after the moving pictures album. Too much of a change for me. I liked the older stuff more. I still play the shit out of that stuff. Its my only real departure from metal, well besides classical. I promised myself to dig out the rush gear and have a rush fest once I got back. Tomorrow maybe.

888 Thoughts on prayer

Think about the great privilege and responsibility God has laid on us through prayer. If we are to be co-workers with Him in the fulfillment of His will, prayer must be a constant practice., It is not enough to pray for what we want or what we would like. Our prayer must be a kind of grace filled labor to bring our desires in line with God's desires, so that His will be done "on earth as it is in heaven". This is a foretaste of our heavenly life, and it is our highest privilege as His Children while we are still on this earth.

944 Greta and her handlers (father, etc) are playing out very well known and ancient medieval personas. She's the "heavenly child' who is brought into the town square to terrify all the townsmen and peasants with her Visions of Angels and Demons and DOOM FOR YOU ALL BECAUSE GOD HAS JUDGED YOU BECAUSE IT WAS IN THE VISION!! And then there is always someone standing right behind her, collecting all the Donations of the Wicked and promising them salvation in return.

Now they're moving into the stage where the act is getting old, and the money is starting to dry up, and so the accusations get wilder and more personal, more directed. (ie, Federer) This works, at first, but like a drug, they have to do more and more, and eventually everyone decides well, this was just more Witchery, and To the Stake with ye!

... and, just like a community organizer's resume is padded with trivial "accomplishments", so, too, the ONT staggered over the 1000 comments line.

1017 Important to note: VA SB16 - the one containing the assault firearms ban and >10 rd magazine ban - was shot down in committee. Also important to note - another magazine bill is still in process.

However, I remain amazed at the sheer incompetence of the media, including the local media, in reporting this. AND that the pro 2A organizations are not filling in the gap here.

Because the defeat of the bill is hinky. Every Democrat on the committee voted against it. Every Republican on the committee voted to...abstain.

WTAF? There is a little bit of detail in local media saying there was some argument about whether the bill could be "dismissed" from committee, and that the Republicans said that the deadline had passed for dismissal and that is why they voted to abstain. That is a teasing amount of info. What actually happened? No one seems interested in telling us.

Why would the Dems want to dismiss it? Why wouldn't the Republicans? These seem at odds with the political winds, so as Ayn Rand says, check your premises.

I think it is something like this - that the bill may not have had enough votes to pass the committee with all Dem votes And that if the bill is defeated in committee, it can't be brought up again in the committee this session. But having been dismissed, it can be brought back.

I am not sure on that, but I seem to recall something like that in the emergency session on guns that Northam called when the General Assembly was still controlled by Republicans.

But anyway, this seems like actual news that actual people would want to actually know.
