Originally posted Dec 27th 2008 and reposted Christmas Eve 2011 Woke up on the couch on the 3rd day of Christmas finding myself watching the 1938 version of A Christmas Carol with Reginald Owen. It is not the best version of the story, Alistair Sim holds that honor helped by first-rate writing. There was an … Continue reading On the 3rd day of Christmas A Christmas Carol for Me (Return engagement)
by baldilocks Every now and then I wonder how differently my life might have gone had I made different choices. For instance, I wonder how deeply I might be involved in the so-called Deep State had I remained a part of the intelligence community. But that’s one decision I have no regrets about. When I … Continue reading Forked
There are a lot of reasons to give thanks on Thanksgiving day. I want to mention one that recently came up. As you know with the Radio Show I'm just flat-out. The mornings consist of reading news and getting a few blog posts up and scheduled (in between getting the youngest to school) I'm usually … Continue reading A reason to give thanks
As you know I love the book Man of the House In it Tip O'Neill tells the story of Mrs. O'Brien during his 1935 race for the Cambridge City Council. The only race he ever lost. When she says to him that she will vote for him even though he didn't ask. When O'Neill protested … Continue reading Tip O’Neill, Beesshipping and Hallie Miller
...the reviews from listeners have been uniformly good so far, in fact I seem to be the toughest critic of the show spotting several things I would like to have done over. (I can't believe I forgot to mention the blogs web site or the show's e-mail) but so far even the most cynical people … Continue reading I can’t thank you enough…
I am really going to regret when Christopher Hitchens is gone, and I confess it will be for my own loss of a person who's writing gives me pleasure and his almost Cryanoistic honesty to his own beliefs (even when they are horribly wrong i.e Christianity) rather than for pity as he has lived a … Continue reading Christopher Hitchens nails it in two sentences
Just got back from the airport to pick up DaWife's nephew and his wife who flew in from Alabama to be here for his older brother's wedding. Since it involved a trip to the airport it also meant that a trip to Prince Pizza in Saugus was required. It was the first time I drove … Continue reading Prince Pizza for a fiver (that $5 American!)

Yesterday my brother picked me up at the airport and we as before went to Prince Pizza. As always the pizza was great and this time I didn't overeat so there was no pain later. We had three very pleasant encounters in the place. The first with the former owners of what was my wife's … Continue reading A Ray of Hope
They came from two different continents and four different countries. One had fled war, another left as a wall fell, and two of them via the visa lottery simply to make a better life for themselves. The first was born in the old soviet union in the early 60's and came to the country after … Continue reading The Four Wise men
Parts 1, 2, 3, and 4 if you missed them: By the time I had got back to the main area I had managed to miss John Bolton but managed to see Ann Coulter. She is what you would call a real pip. Not shy about saying what she thinks and even less shy about … Continue reading Mr. DaTechGuy goes to CPAC part 5
When my kids where younger I used to get paper plates and we'd have pie fights with shaving cream pies in the back yard just because. I think life needs more of that!
Did 2 miles with the wife and then sat in the car talking for a half hour. You know what the world didn't end while I was gone. The speaker may do something nasty today or we may stop her but I'm not going to let it spoil my day.
A rather silly post concerning of all things a music video and an exchange concerning it really got me thinking about the subject of what it means to be a man and what manhood actually is. Unlike most people my age my parents grew up in the depression, when times were much harder than they … Continue reading What is manhood?
As of today (March 15), my total hits this year have surpassed my total hits for the entire previous year. There are a lot of people to thank for this, most notability Robert Stacy McCain whose support really put me on the map, to Glenn Reynolds who has been kind enough to instalanche me on … Continue reading So much for Bewaring the Ides of March
