"Davy Jones【デイビー・ジョーンズ】 (1996.1)"

From Timt49:

 "I knew I would find it again. At the end he walks past the Ventures and sits next to Bob Bogle. Another YouTube video carries on from there with the Ventures."



Unfortunately, embedding has been disabled on this video, so you'll have to click the link to watch it on YouTube. As always, Japanese TV confuses me.

What Websites Do You Visit Every Day?


I check out the JTI, Racine Uncovered, Journal Times, Journal Sentinel, and Google News.  Sometimes CNN, Reuters, and/or Yahoo News.  I visit Break.com every few days. That's where most of the crazy videos come from. After I see one I like on Break, I find it on YouTube, because I prefer their embedding. For entertainment, I visit Retrovision.tv, Hulu, Google Video, YouTube and others for movies and/or old TV shows.

Bedtime Games

Bedtime Games
Installment 35

Make your best guess and.... GO TO BED!
Answer revealed tomorrow.

Believe it or not, it took me 20 minutes to set up and capture such a crappy picture. I take great pride in my poor photography skills...  :)

I am determined to not hear, " Way too easy" this week. While the answer might be obvious,
(who knows with you guys?)  the specifics might be more ambiguous.

The winning lottery ticket is claimed by a female this week. Congratulations, Tender Heart Bear! The irregulars are far too good at this little game. Too bad the prizes can't help you into retirement.

Oh, btw, you won't find too many name brand items in my abode. I'm a very economical shopper. It is Friendly Farms, not that highfalutin Redi Whip. Where are the product endorsement offers? 


The game is never complete until orbs has a little last minute selection paranoia. 


Next week,  I'll confound you. Hmmm.... maybe I need to photograph something dirty to stump you'all? ;>

"Today’s laugh of the day – brought to you by the RJT"

From Tricky Dicky:

“Journal Times editorial 3-28: We Energies should feel the consequences

"A decade ago, We Energies made a decision about its future and rammed it past broad public opposition. That decision didn’t work out so well, and now the state’s largest utility wants to make its customers pay for that decision.

"The Public Service Commission should refuse this. It is not only a drag on the economy, but it upsets a basic idea of fairness.

"The utility wants a 3.6 percent increase in 2013 and another in 2014 to pay for pollution-control projects at the Oak Creek power plant and to cover cost overruns there because of litigation and construction delays, among other factors.

"For the typical residential customer, that increase would mean about $100 more over two years. That isn’t much in the scheme of many household budgets, but $100 here and $100 there adds up to much less consumer spending.

"In the meantime, Wisconsin Energy Corp., the parent company of the utility, reported record earnings in 2011 and looks like it will do the same this year.

"And here we are in the future which We Energies selected for us. The utility wants customers to pay more because of litigation, in other words for exercising their legal rights to object to a poor decision.

"It’s time for us to stop paying and for the utility’s shareholders to take up their responsibility. This is the risk of ownership: Make a bad investment decision, and you make less money until the results of that poor decision subside. You don’t come running to the public for a bailout.”


I’M going to HELP the JT and FIX IT FOR THEM

Tricky Dicky Editorial: John Dickert should feel the consequences.

A year ago, John Dickert made a decision and on a radio show claimed he fired a man for embezzlement. That decision didn’t work out so well, and now Racine’s Mayor wants the Taxpayers to pay for that decision.

The Racine Common Council should refuse this. It is not only a drag on the budget for The City of Racine, but it upsets a basic idea of fairness.

The Mayor of Racine wants the taxpayers of Racine to spend hundreds of thousands of dollars, or WHATEVER it takes, to defend the mouth of John Dickert because John Dickert made a bad decision.

For the typical resident of Racine, that increase in property tax levied to pay for an ever increasing Lawyers Fee has yet to be determined. It may not be much in the scheme of household budgets, but a little here, and a little there adds up to much less consumer spending.

In the meantime the Mayor and the Common Council continue to spend like drunken sailors, giving away millions to cronies and expanding spending programs like DBP’s.

And here we are in the future which the Mayor has selected for us. Taxpayers must pay more as property taxes increase, property values decline, and property becomes unsaleable in the City of Racine, in other words, for being foolish enough to be a property owner in the City of Racine.

It’s time for The City of Racine to stop paying for John Dickerts mouth. This is the risk of running your mouth. Make a bad decision and a false statement, and you pay your own legal expenses. You don’t come running to the taxpayers for a bailout!

THANX FOR THE LAUGHS JT!

U.S. Bridges, Roads Being Built by Chinese Firms



And still the politicians lie and lie to us.

Mr. Sound Effects Wes Harrison!



My only day off of work in a eight day week, Drew and I went thrift store shopping on Saturday. This is what we like to do because we can always find real good bargains.

Well this time I really found something I thought I would never see again. Yes this album of Mr. Sound Effects Wes Harrison and I got the album for only a dollar. The one and only time I seen him was at the Wisconsin Dells during a Tommy Bartlet Water Ski Show. This was over twenty years ago that I had seen him. He is really funny and I really enjoyed his show. My son was only three years old and he was sitting there laughing and enjoying the show.

He was in two wars, World War II and the Koren War. When he got out he went to the Aurthur Godfrey talent show and won. Ted Mack gave him his start in the show business, he started to appear on a lot of t.v. shows like Ed Sullivan, Merv Griffin and Dean Martin. He has also done some sound effects for Disney  and MGM shows like Tom and Jerry, Peter Pan and 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea.

I lost this album after my divorce and never thought I would see it again and then I found it. I was so happy when I found this album, I had to listen to it Saturday night when we got home. You should have seen Drew's face listening to it, the looks were priceless. I was sitting there laughing while I was listening to it.

On the album he has The Big Duck Hunt, Odds and Ends, Take a Train and Wes' Car. When you hear this you would not believe what he has done to people. Here are a couple of things from the album- On his car he put a speaker behind the grill and made train sounds going down the street, in a traffic jam he made sounds of a galloping horse with a police officer two cars in front of him, he got kicked off of two planes for making train sounds. He puts on one awesome show.

If you enjoy comedy like this it is a album to get.

Thank you for reading this and please feel free to leave any comments!♥

Dear Madame Zoltar

Hello, my diaphanous daffodils! How are you? Unfortunately, I am a little ill. I think I caught something from Mr. OrbsCorbs, as I spent most of yesterday either sitting on or hugging the toilet bowel. He knows about these things. He is plagued by them. I have seen him cycle in and out of illness for weeks, even months, at a time. He will vomit for a day, 2 days, 3 days in a row, then take longer to recover. Even my antidotes do not work for him. His gastroenterologist and psychiatrist agree that it is caused primarily by stress. Ha! I know the truth. It is caused by a blood curse that precedes my time. Thus, I can do little to help him.

I am gong to shorten my usual blog today in order to drink Gatorade and try to eat something. I’m so sorry that this happened. “The best laid schemes o' mice an' men / Gang aft a-gley.”

Speaking of diaphanous, here is a song of the same name from a group called Braving the Glacier:



Thank you for reading my blog this week. I appreciate your visit. I apologize for its brevity.

Sick and/or tired? Madame Zoltar has the cure: madamezoltar@jtirregulars.com.

Enjoy the glorious onslaught of our weather, my dears. At this time next year, we may be shoveling snow. Or we may not exist at all because of the end of the world on Dec. 21. Oh my. Just teasing, my loves. Have a wonderful week. Feracious!

Cool Homes, Part 3?



We've talked about alternative housing before. I believe someone posted a picture of a house made from a used fuselage. We may have spoken about container homes in another blog. I think this is the neatest thing: Reduce,  Reuse, Recycle. Let's add Repurpose to that mantra. These shipping containers seem ideal for this purpose. I'll take one!
