6 Gotta admit, this is a first for me. usually the EMT has drifted by long before I roust myself out of the rack. But my insomnia has been unusually bad of late.

Good morrow! (Insert lame LARP fake English accent)

Things that have changed in Delaware: when you see a caravan of three or more black SUVs out on the roads, some with flashing red and blue lights, you wonder which of the grifting Bidens or their associates are out and about and playing at being swells.

It was your comment in the previous thread (trucks on highways, occasional freight train horn), that inspired me.
I find those soothing as well. Lately I've been feeling nostalgic about my ailing country.

Instead of letting this linger below at the tag end of the ONT ...

Early awakening on a day that promises nothing but rain. Perhaps it is time to tackle the accumulation of items not put away and those no longer needed in our basement. Weeded one of our garden beds yesterday after assisting with two scouts' Eagle leadership projects.


Eagle leadership projects is the term I use for scout Eagle projects because the primary thrust of such endeavors is to have the youths demonstrate and exercise their leadership skills. I am staying on with my troop as its Eagle Coach when I step down as Scoutmaster at the end of August.

36 I went about a week with good nights sleep, but last night we had some storms roll in and I started aching. I was supposed to be basking in the Arizona desert sunshine by now, but Biden* took care of that. Where I was going to settle is like a Fulda Gap for illegals.

42 Morning Ron's.

This visit with my 80yo mother and I am realizing she has lost a step. Or two.

The decline is obvious after two months. At this pace she won't be able to live alone in a year.

And she's stubborn. And I am an only child who lives 500 miles away. And we are going to have to have a very difficult talk.

Don't even read the sports pages anymore. They went woke and I went away. Move the MLB All Star game and I am gone completely. Not that I care about the game, just go woke and bye bye

88 I have heard that the late Larry McMurtry hated his earlier books that put him on the map.

You see the same thing in later Waylon Jennings shows. In his case - I think it may have been a hatred of himself rather than the material. Jerry Reed and Tom T Hall never did that - they always exuded a genuine humility and desire to give the crowd what they came to see. I was never good enough to play at their level - not even close - but if I was, I'd want to emulate them. Ot George Thorogood - another cat that always brought it, rain or shine.

89 McMurtry was a self loathing Texan. As for Goodman, when he wrote "You Never Even Call Me By My Name" for Coe, it was both a parody of the style and a poke at how Nashville keeps outsiders, like Goodman, outside.

Yesterday I was on my hands and knees weeding our rose bed. There were basically 2 kinds of weeds in it:
- Purple Dead Nettle who's roots go like a mile into the ground
- Chickweed which spreads everywhere

Preen, the "preemptive weed control granules" don't do shit.

The teacher's union problem is a microcosm of the entire civil service. You cannot have a group so large, unelected, with so much power decide that only one party is the way the truth the light with all the protections of the union movement.

They want to be partisan they need to be patronage jobs and we need to admit the Wagner act failed.

Second, maybe check-in with POTUS? He's been pledging 100% schools back in-person in April.

McMurtry hated his fans, a lot like Kathleen Kennedy vice Star Wars fans and the current retard parade running Star Trek. He wanted Woodrow Call to represent every reader's distant hardass father in their mind's eye. Instead what he wrote was a ruthless driven hardass who was fair to a fault and selfless.

Pet is a Marxist, and he knows exactly what he is doing. Pretty much every car-related thing the Left does is designed to phase them out, force us to move to bug cities and be dependent on public transportation.

Taxing by the mile is a great way to install trackers on cars (easier to gather travel data than license plate reading), and to penalize people for commuting and travel. Agenda 21/hate of the suburbs, make it costly to live fare away from densly populated areas.

Cars = FREEDOM

what gripes me about people going on about geothermal is that you've got to be on top of a real hot shallow magma pool for it to have any chance of working - Iceland, Hawaii, the volcano belt in northern California and Oregon. Outside of that, the crust is too thick and it won't work.

I recall that Hawaii had a real successful geothermal plant. Then in the last eruption, it got buried under 30 feet of lava. Oops, occupational hazard.

179 >>Yep. IIRC some moron posted that his dad was a hardcore Marxist professor.

So hardcore he was one of the world's formost expert on Gramsci and founded the International Gramsci Society.Also thought the Communist Manifesto was the best thing ever, taught it in his literature classes at Notre Dame.

182 those of us who know what Pantone color charts are,
they are standardize colors. The governments will use them to determine
where you fall on the person of color list. Above a certain color you
are entitled to more benefits that someone who is whiter.

I used to look forward to the announcement of Pantone's Color of the Year. One year it was a lovely Emerald Green. The next year it was an "are you kidding me" shade of bilious maroon. I'm not sure how they would racialize that, but it won't be for lack of trying.

Ugh.

Oh well. The path is chosen and the streets are clear. We're putting obviously mentally ill people in charge of Health and Human Services and the courts are reinforcing three to six different kinds of law depending on who you are or know.

Pedal to the metal, America. Get it over with.

Depends, if you are willing to go the factory refurb route I would suggest getting a Xeon workstation and coupling it with one of the actual "working" graphics cards like a Quatro.

"Did something happen?"

SAY HER NAME!

"Oh you mean the chick who threw down on cops?"

195 From the Gramsci link:

"and returned home to lead the resistance against Italys Prime Minister Benito Mussolini, on the orders of Lenin, while his new wife and children stayed in the USSR.

Those efforts landed Gramsci in an Italian prison..."

---

Another moron pointed it out and it was a fantastic observation.

Lenin won. He took over America. Pro-Lenin Gramsci was imprisoned and that's when he wrote all of his work that America then embraced and incorporated.

Pretty neat when you think about it.

Also COJ if you are willing to go "not off the shelf" I think you can build a 12 core 24 thread processor that would sledgehammer your work for under 2500 without the graphics card.

Your graphics card solution would be the real cost determiner for a CAD system.

The trades say you need a Xeon or Threadripper to do the job, but I'd contend that a properly configured Ryzen 7 or 9 would see you through.
