The ONT is an awesome destination IMHO. However, the Kung Flu has made it a difficult daily project. Honestly, I'm tired of the coverage. So tonight's ONT will once again feature some non-current event stories.


The history behind London's Windmill Theatre.

It was reported last year in London’s Evening Standard that the Windmill Theatre, once celebrated for never closing and still remembered as a major symbol for London’s Blitz spirit, was to be ‘reborn’ as a ‘celebrity cocktail bar’. The building, a stone’s throw from Piccadilly Circus and Shaftesbury Avenue, had actually been empty for a year. The Windmill International Lap Dancing club that advertised itself, improbably, as ‘probably the most exciting men’s club in the world’ had lost its adult entertainment licence when its dancers were found to be flouting the “no touching” rules.

The Windmill Theatre started life in 1931 after the Palais-de-Luxe, a former cinema on the corner of Archer Street and Great Windmill Street, was bought the year before and turned into a small theatre by Mrs Laura Henderson. The street, and thus the theatre, had taken its name from a windmill on the site first recorded in 1585 and demolished about 100 years later. Mrs Henderson’s husband, a Bengal Jute merchant, had died in 1919 and left her everything in his will. It was not an insubstantial sum not least because it was estimated that 1.3 billion jute sandbags had been needed during World War One.

The camera hat. 1945 cool.

How Pabst Blue Ribbon survived prohibition.

IN THE EARLY 1900S, PABST was a paragon of success. What started in 1844 as a tiny Milwaukee brewery had become the largest beer maker in the nation by 1874, producing more than a million barrels a year in 1893. That same year, the company started claiming that one of its lagers had won a blue-ribbon award at the Chicago World’s Fair. It was pure malarkey. But the blue silk ribbons they tied around bottle necks put some prestige behind the brand, and helped turn the Pabst family into millionaires.

Okie dokie, just a couple of stories that raise my BP into the 188/95 range.

If you see anyone violating the mayor's order, you can call 311. Fuck you. Fuck you to tears.

He said the car wash did not listen and still is not listening. The mayor's staff said city crews would check out the situation.

Strickland said 140 businesses have been reported for violating his order. 134 were called on and all but the car wash complied. He also said the health department received 15 calls about churches and Memphis police received reports about 41 crowds in public or at their home.

"It is going to take time but we will get through this together," Strickland said. "We must come together to stay apart."

If you see anyone violating the mayor's order, you can call 311.


And when you leave the house, don't forget your identification and travel documents.

A York County woman this week was the first person in Pennsylvania to be cited for violating Gov. Tom Wolf’s stay-at-home order, according to state police.

The 19-year-old woman was given a nontraffic citation for allegedly “going for a drive,” according to the citation obtained by Pennlive.

State police spokesman Ryan Tarkowski said Friday the woman initially was pulled over because of a vehicle code violation. Warnings have been issued by troopers in Troop A, which includes Westmoreland County, and Troop E in the Erie area, he said.

Troopers can use their discretion to decide if a citation is warranted, but they have been encouraged to use contacts with the public as a way to promote voluntary compliance, Tarkowski said.

The Village of Sleepy Hollow is frightened of its own shadow.

The Village of Sleepy Hollow is temporarily banning the use of leaf blowers to make sure residents are safe during the coronavirus pandemic.

Effective immediately, all leaf blower use is banned for the duration of the pandemic.


Village officials say since the virus is a respiratory condition, having things blown into the air could create a hazmat situation.

So I guess kissing my ass is out of the question.

A kind and caring Genius Award Winner.


Today marks the day that Law&Crime has seen it all. A suspect dropped a baby off part-way through a police chase in Detroit, Michigan on Monday. No, really! We’re not kidding!


You can see it in the video above.

The driver in a red sedan slowed down near a woman in a white shirt. The woman made her way to the vehicle, opened the passenger-side rear door, and pulled out what looked an awful lot like an infant car seat.

Well, guess what: There was a 3-month-old baby in there, according to sources cited by Fox 2 Detroit. Cops pulled ground and air units off the scene, but officers attempted to box the red sedan about an hour later. Even so, the driver escaped.

It's a pain in the rear end, I have beaded lap siding and peeling it and patching it is rough work.

Holy cow! One opf the secrets of zombietime revealed!

I thought that I was the one who invented the world's first camera hat. I had no idea someone already did it in 1945!

I actually made two of them. The first one was really seat-of-the-pants primitive. But it worked and I used it several times in crucial situations.

The second was much better and slicker. But I finished it right around the time that I stopped zombietiming, so I only ever used it about three times. Still have it, for the future, if needed.

The hardest part was "jailbreaking" the camera's operating system allowing me to operate the shutter by remote control attached to my ring. Very very slick.

96 "It is going to take time but we will get through this together," Strickland said. "We must come together to stay apart."

I guess their version of "we will get through this together" and "we must come together" is: DO WHAT WE TELL YOU OR WE WILL CRUSH YOU WITH OUR FASCIST JACKBOOTS!

Sorry for the all caps but I get upset about the police state shit.

I had a client who's house was primarily made with hand tools, it being out in the sticks at the time...early 60's. The designer/architect used some Oriental influences in his design.

Of course, I had to cludge a lot to replace sections of trim and siding, as well as rebuilding some windows. Thankfully I collect antique and vintage woodworking tools so I was able to do a bang up job on his house.

178 So, it's pouring rain here in the Central Valley of CA. For the third day in a row I might add.

Unusual? You bet.

And my wife voices some concern about the patio flooding.

No big deal, says I, because, backyard drains that drain into the front yard and into the street.

Everything is cool, right?

Then, I decide, after looking again, no, not cool.

Crud,

Grab coat, shovel, start trenching and uncovering backyard drains that have grown over. Still working, but, enough water coming out of the sky that I'm not taking any chances.

Then, I walk around the side of the house, where a small lake has formed. I can't decide if I should canoe across the lake or see if I can get it drain properly.

Quick work with a shovel, nice trench to another drain, incipient backyard lake is being reduced in size rapidly.

Oh, I wouldn't have worried so much, but, it's supposed to keep raining for the next few days.

192 House #2 without a doubt. Great evening conversation and laughs-wise. With Jimbo, Sammy and Cassavettes yammering away, Rita would think Rick and Greeley are a couple of nerds. Morrison would start strong, she'd love him, but he'd end up raging drunk and end up pissing her off or passing out. Probably both. I'd have to time it right, but one good deep insult to Cassavettes would cripple him . Hopeless neurotic. He'd shut up and brood. So it'd be down to me and Sammy in a charm off for Rita. I like my chances.

The siding has sections that are 16ft long and are a foot tall with a 1/2 inch bead.

It's very hard to get top quality board stock that's 16ft long.

So I have to get by with 6 to 8 ft sections that I make myself because nobody has these boards ever.

When I can get genuine boards they come from Washington State.

thank you. funny thing, her decline was rapid, only during the last year or so. hard to watch.

She knew how to open doors. When she was young we lived in an apartment with lever handles. She would jump up and open the door and go chase skwerls.

288 I have of course grown up with John Prine woo-woo, John Prine , John Prine was at Fitzgerald's, etc... as if he were something special. But I never found his music compelling: not fun, interesting or beautiful. Maybe he is some kind of natural-born songwriter, but I just didn't care, or want to hear more. And honestly, from this bio he sounds like someone I personally wouldn't like.

But to his fans, condolences.

380 OK, I was just perusing jobs on Indeed, and saw the strangest description of the physical demands of the job. Here it is in all its glory!

"While performing the duties of this job, the employee is regularly required to talk or hear. The employee is frequently required to stand, walk and sit. The employee is occasionally required to use hands to finger, handle, or feel; reach with hands and arms; climb or balance; and stoop, kneel, crouch, or crawl. The employee must occasionally lift and/or move up to 50 lbs, frequently 5-10 lbs. Specific vision abilities required by this job include close vision, distance vision, peripheral vision, depth perception, ability to adjust focus. The noise level in the work environment is usually quiet."

414 I thought that I was the one who invented the world's first camera hat. I had no idea someone already did it in 1945!

I actually made two of them. The first one was really seat-of-the-pants primitive. But it worked and I used it several times in crucial situations.

The second was much better and slicker. But I finished it right around the time that I stopped zombietiming, so I only ever used it about three times. Still have it, for the future, if needed.

The hardest part was "jailbreaking" the camera's operating system allowing me to operate the shutter by remote control attached to my ring. Very very slick.
Posted by: zombie at April 07, 2020 10:04 PM (N9G0H)

Good for you! Funny, that 1945 camera hat looks more like it should be 1915. Bellows cameras had pretty much gone out of common use by then. Thirty-five mm was pretty popular amongst the more dedicated hobbyists, and fixed-focus cameras in 120, 620, 127, and 828 formats were in the popular price brackets. Heck, you could even get a Minox, an actual spy camera.

420 John Prine was born in Maywood, IL, in that huge soup of towns we call Chicagoland. Maywood is due west of the loop way out past Oak Park.

Did you know Chicagoland is the biggest single collection of cities anywhere in the country? And that the Mexican community there goes back to the 1940s. Route 66 was the holy road that led from the deserts of New Mexico all the way to the promised land of work and money.

425 Unintended consequences....

We have clients on the dreaded "Lockdown" in our housing units that are run as part of our comprehensive rehab models as mandated by DMH (Dept. of Mental Health.) This alone has been triggering some of the clients with emotions of being back in prison. Can't fault them there. My unit's job is to "re-insert them" back into society on productive pathways post incarceration. Now they find themselves feeling like they are back in the cell blocks.....just an Effin no win here right now in spite of our best efforts to bring them food and other authorized distractions..."Board games??? thinking not ...PS2...3? works some.


And then last Friday, he walked out of housing stating "I'm going to get a coat." Staff told him he could not come back without medical clearance which was the latest protocol..

He never came back.

Instead, he did the head dive from a fatal high structure the next night....

I'm praying he was an anomaly...he was getting better/healing so we thought.....How many more weeks?

437 Pug, so sorry for your loss. 21 years is amazing, we had our cat Sally for 20.

I've told the story before, but when we came home from vacation she was dead under the coffee table. So I dug a hole and picked her up and as I exited the house heard a noise. I thought that was just the air coming out of her lungs like they say. Put her in the cool fall ground and her leg twitched.

Took her inside and petted her and she seemed to revive. But then I realized it was hopeless and stopped and let her go. She was gone in about 10 minutes. It's like she waited for us to come home and then my touch revived her. Very weird, she has a big place in my heart.

445 I'm sorry to hear that Nightwatch. Poor man.

So we have been locked down a bit longer, since the day after Ash Wednesday, so we're in our 4th week.

I would say that people are cracking this week. Mostly things seemed ok last week. but this week is apparently when the wheels fall off.

just everyone is walking around in a daze and the stores are looking shabbier and people seem really "off"

the longterm affects of this on the people of PA will be...interesting. not good. If we really go like this until April 30 that's over three more weeks!

and we have nothing open - no construction is allowed so people are living with ripped-out kitchens and bathrooms - no liquor stores - no garden stores - nothing but grocery stores which are now limiting hours. state parks closed. I think we have the most onerous lockdown here. I'm sure Wolf will come up with new ways to punish us soon too.

I have a story kind of like that. I worked at a vet clinic and there was a dog we saw regularly. She had cancer, and the owner brought her in to have her put to sleep; owner's husband was out of town but she was suffering and they didn't want to wait. Anyway, vet gave the dog the shot, and nothing. Gave her another one, nothing. Gave her 2x the normal dose, still nothing. Finally owner said, she's not going to let go until she hears husband's voice. She called husband and put him on speakerphone, and as soon as the dog heard his voice she let go. Vet said she had never seen anything like it.

Re the phrase "stinks on ice". I got to wondering where that came from and deduced it must be some reference to terrible ice skating extravaganzas. There was a period where they would take just about any production and try to make an ice show out of it.

I thought it must be related to that. No. It goes way back before then.....

Yeah, I found out back in college when I brought some friends home a time or two that folks are indeed different. One guy, born and raised in the city or dense suburbs therearound, just couldn't handle being out in the country with the quiet and open spaces. He was used to hustle and bustle and lots of external stimuli.

Me, that's what I like. I'd go crazy in such an environment. And these folks going crazy in this stay at home thing reminded me of that.

514 Thinking my understanding of the word "jazz"is incomplete. When I hear the word jazz I think of a bunch of guys blowing instruments back and forth with none of the riffs bearing on any of the others. Desmond's music (and Getz' and Brubeck's) have some structure. But the free-flowers would have you believe that's not jazz.
Posted by: creeper at April 07, 2020 10:29 PM (XxJt1)

Jazz has a long history, going back to before music recording was invented. The different forms can be quite unlike each other. The hallmark of jazz is "collective improvisation".

Take an hour with the EweToobs, and listen to a bunch of different renditions of "Muskrat Ramble" from different eras. Lots of improvising going on, but they never lose the essence of the tune, which you have probably heard before, even if the name is unfamiliar.

Here, I'll start you off with Sydney Bechet:

Still getting headaches and the shortness of breath is worse. Gave in and went to the health clinic. Stuck a swab up my nose and told me they'll know in 9 to 14 days. Told me my lungs sounded moderately bad. Gave me an antibiotic rx. Told me to quarantine until I got the results. I laughed at them.

I have ordered Dr. Dean and all members of DNC to corner the market on hydroxychloroquine and all related drugs as my medical emergency directive. After all hydroxychloroquine has been procured by the democrats it will be distributed first to all democrat politicians, TV talking Heads and important democrat donors. Next, if necessary hydroxychloroquine will be distributed to all democrat voters including those in cemeteries and those with multiple absentee ballots. Last, the remaining hydroxychloroquine supply will be impounded to ensure no republicans will get any. Once, the repubs cough their way into the fourth dimension or use my new CO ventilator to achieve eternal tranquility you will be surprised with the voting results. Good Night.

The "Baby Graflex" was by design, a roll film camera. 620 roll in it's original design. Later marques were 120 roll, but otherwise, identical.

Still had the bellows and adjustable front standard.

But a 3/4 scale Speed Graphic, for all intents and purposes.

Which made it perfect for taking pictures of dolphins, of course.

Thing is made of Bakelite. Very solid; uses 127 film, which all but unobtainable now. The shutter doesn't work. I suspect there is a broken spring, but I have not messed with it. No need.

I know all about the L' elle thing Insom.
She got herself banned on purpose.
Tired of being attacked for something she did not do concerning two jackasses.

Certain individuals could have, and should have, put a stop to it that night. Cleared the whole thing up. They had the inside info and the power to do so.
They punted.
Still in contact with her and spent a couple days with her when she came to visit and hear the trio. I very much enjoyed it.


She's a great gal.

Plus, No Regrets is one of the greatest songs ever writen.

Well, for the first time in nearly 30 years, since before Average Wife and I were married, we're moving more than 10 miles away... SF bay area to San Diego north county. Tomorrow the POD arrives. Hopefully we'll get it loaded by the weekend, then have it sent down Monday. Average Brother and I will drive down 4 days later, taking a U-Haul with AW's '69 Bug in tow, to unload the POD. Average Daughter will drive herself and her pets down, to start her new job on the 20th. I'll drive back, move my tools and some other stuff into storage, and start prepping our house to be rented. AW will go down May 2 or so to start her new Job. I'll stay here through May, at least, to get the house rented (hopefully) while getting as many inspection jobs in as possible, because I'll be starting my business from scratch down there and won't be making a lot of $$ for some time.

Anyway, it's gonna be crazy, and there are a lot of unknowns. Wuhan Flu hysteria won't make it any easier, except for the driving.

Anyway, prayers appreciated. If any of you know real estate professionals in the SD area & wouldn't mind making a referral, hit me up: the dot oeys at sbcglobal dot net.

705 ..Thanks, my friend! Don't know about the hawt sexretary part yet. One can hope. I had a secretary years ago who was a serious MILF. I was the envy of the office for quite a while.

Posted by: Insomniac - Ex Cineribus Resurgo at April 08, 2020 01:01 AM (NWiLs)



When I was in the Fortune 1000 world, my secretary was a Hispanic lass, hailing from El Paso, TX.

4'11. AFTER breast reduction surgery, she was still 40 DDd.

Cute as hell, but with eyes a bit bulgy like a chihuahua.

But I'll tell you this. She was the most wickedly effective Admin I've ever seen. Loyal as hell.

Confidentiality was NEVER an issue with her. Corporate strategies? She wasn't a leader on that, but once I'd explained my plans, she grokked every word and nuance, and rode HELL on the herd of 50+ employees under my charge.

I've seen faster typists, but then, I've always done my own typing, anyway.

But she could make Lotus 123 cry for mercy, and even the Executive Suite in MA was respectful to not cross her.

I paid her every penny and then some, that I could wrest from the Corporate Budget. And even then, she was worth twice that and more.

Having her at my side in that world, was like having Jerry Mickulek covering your back in a shooting situation.

And the two of us were the fastest of PROFESSIONAL allies and friends.

Never once though, crossed a professional/personal boundary.

Closest it came to that, was when I introduced her to a Bexar County Sherriff's Deputy that I rode with in the Gold Wing world.

Minor spark, but they didn't ignite.

Not to worry. Five years later, she landed a VERY successful construction contractor.

Age 42, and that was her first (and still ONLY) marriage.

Insom. I hope you get a clone of her.

She was a WARRIOR.

It's been raining real nicely here since last night, off/on, but steady and light, no downpours. Which for this desert is the perfect scenario, and we have to be well off last year's numbers, probably more "average" (8-10 inches/year).

I got this handle a few years ago when I cracked some joke about an item in the content about what the average guy likes vis-a-vis the relative plumpiness of a woman (i.e., stick-thin vs. tastefully soft & curvy).

731 Today I went through 2 gallons of that roll-on ceiling texture to do slightly more than half the ceiling in my guest bedroom and adjoining hallway. The stuff is so thick, I could not pour it out of the pail, and resorted to using a soup ladle to place dollops in the roller tray. It went on quite easily over the primed bare wood, but the pre-existing popcorn ceiling soaked it up like a sponge, and some of it flaked off, but I got all the divots fixed. Had something bleed through, and stain small strip light brown. I will see if I can get an aerosol can of flat white oil-base paint, which ought to fix that. Does Killz come in spray cans?

The trick with the old popcorn finish is, don't work the roller too much. Load the roller, do about a square foot with N-S strokes, then finish it off with E-W strokes to get a pleasing texture grain. Then leave it. Roll too much, and it starts to lift the old texture. Trying save paint just winds up wasting it.

And a lot of the cracks, splits, seams, and nail holes in the old ceiling have either disappeared, or become inconspicuous. So, a win in my book.

735 Classic Firearms in NC, known to many gun nut Morons, just sent me an email pitching a new product ...... the XM42 flamethrower. Uh huh. They also have a soda can launcher that uses 5.56 blank rounds.

Amurrika, f**k yeah!

Flamethrower looks to use continuous ignition of the fuel stream with a butane torch, unlike a real flamethrower, that sparks ignition just to get the party started (I think - I need to rewatch the excellent flamethrower episodes by Gun Jesus on Forgotten Weapons UToob to refresh my memory).

I guess you can't actually say, in this case, "perfect for home defense". But still. Want.

Those are worldwide numbers. Compare that to Swine Flu...

CDC estimated that 151,700-575,400 people worldwide died from (H1N1)pdm09 virus infection during the first year the virus circulated.**

Interesting that we had very wide range of estimates for that and other past pandemics yet for Wuhan Virus we have precise numbers.

866 Apparently, the Chinese War Lord Government has reestablished a lockdown in Wuhan, due to a resurgence in new cases of the Wuhan Attack Virus. Some of yesterday's stories were just nuts, like Navarro saying the ChiComs bought the entire world supply of N95 masks in December-January even while having their mouthpiece at WHO tell everyone the disease was no big deal.

873 Thank you Lord for another day.

Off this morning for a doc follow up and may just take the rest of the day off. Mid-week day drinking sounds like fun.

We had storms go thru about 7 PM yesterday. They were promising us tennis ball size hail. I wanted to see that, but luckily we didn't get that.
I moved all my lawn stuff around so I could get the other car in the garage though

Sounds good. I had my knees replaced in September and am looking forward to trying to play again. Of course our shit for brains Gov shut down gold courses too. I wanted to at least get to a driving range

882 All the golf courses in our area are closed, by government fiat. So are all the parks. My dogs and I use them anyway since we walk all over the woods together but I worry I'm going to find myself accosted by some busybody copper when I finally trudge back to the car. Then I'll be forced to go all Sovereign Citizen and that never ends well.

884 Shalom, Mike here.

Your website and business look great and both seem well established.

I am messaging you today to compliment your business + to give you a headsup about the unreasonably low pricing I am charging (for a limited time) to new clients interested in my graphic design services.

Reply back to say Hi, ask to see my portfolio, or check out my site.

885 I reached out several months ago about how explainer videos help and the unique issues they solve.
My team has created thousands of marketing videos including dozens in your field.

As you know, Google is constantly changing its SEO algorithm. The only thing that has remained consistent is that adding an explainer video increases website rank and most importantly keeps customers on your page for longer, increasing conversions ratios.

Simplify your pitch, increase website traffic, and close more business.
Should I send over some industry-specific samples?
