"A homeless war veteran was moved to tears
in Redlands, California, on November 15 when he met a good Samaritan at a
local gas station. The homeless man approached Max and asked for
change; that was when Max invited him into his car and offered to buy
him food. Some good news has followed the emotional scene in this video:
Max’s new friend secured a restaurant job! Max has also started a
GoFundMe campaign to support other homeless veterans. Credit:
Hello and welcome back to Four for Fridays. I hope everyone is ready for that nasty white stuff that is coming our way tonight and through tomorrow. After having my surgery back in August I am ready to see how the knee holds up for the winter that is why I made sure it was done before winter came.
Just to let everyone know there will not be any Four for Fridays next week we will not be home. Here are this weeks questions.
1) What are your plans for Thanksgiving this year?
2) Are you ready for the nasty cold weather with the nasty white stuff coming?
3) Do you shop more on the computer or do you go to the stores?
4) When you go grocery shopping do you take coupons with you?
Had to go out last night with some students so I setup a camera on a tripod and let it shoot pics for about an hour and a half in the Moonlit desert. Here is a still frame with a plane passing through.
I also put all the pics together into a short timelapse. This represents about 90 minutes of pictures spliced together.
And this is about a 10 minute drive from where I live so I can get there quickly and easily.
Part of my job is escorting film crews on Kitt Peak. Last summer, I spent a couple of days with a crew doing a series called Unsung. Unsung looks at people behind the scenes who may not get all the glory but are vital to making things run smoothly.
They profiled Mike Hawes, facilities manager at Kitt Peak. The video is done and posted online so I thought I would share it with you. I think they did a nice job capturing what it takes to keep the mountain running. They were lucky since the secondary mirror of the 2.1 meter telescope was being recoated which gave them lots of good footage to shoot.
Hello, my soaked and soggy friends! How are you? I don't know if it will still be raining when this posts, but the national weather map shows a huge system from Canada to Mexico that is making it's way across the US. Right now, Wisconsin is covered with rain. It's kind of unpleasant, but thank God it isn't what they have in Colorado: the s-word. I'm dreaming of a white Thanksgiving. No, not really. I'm dreading it. Let's hope there won't be wintry conditions for holiday travelers.
What's happened to our glorious Green Bay Packers? They've lost three in a row now. This Sunday, November 22. they meet the hated Minnesota Vikings in Minnesota at 3:25 pm. Then, on Thanksgiving, they meet arch rivals the Chicago Bears. It's going to be a rough couple of weeks for our Green and Gold warriors. C'mon guys, quit fooling around. Crush your opponents.
Here are the standings for the Irregular Football League:
The Racine Irregulars are on top now, with The Mighty Bears and Half-Astrophysicists hot on their trail. I don't even want to talk about my Screaming Psychics. Oh my.
While generally I don't discuss at length political views here, I have to share this with you. It's "old" news, but it's so wrong on so many levels that I feel compelled to say something.
"Former presidential candidate Scott Walker and his friends in the
Wisconsin state legislature have figured out a way to deal with
bothersome, recurring investigations into political corruption.
than clean up their act, they have simply passed a law that makes it
harder for prosecutors to launch such investigations.
Wisconsin governor who recently dropped out of the race for the GOP
presidential nomination, has signed into state law a measure that
restricts the use of so-called John Doe proceedings. These proceedings
enable prosecutors to obtain search warrants and collect testimony as
part of investigations that remain secret until charges are filed.
Unlike secret grand jury proceedings, which are more costly, John Doe
investigations are authorized by a judge, and it is a judge, rather than
a jury, that hears the evidence.
"It’s telling that Walker and his
cohorts aren't opposed to John Doe investigations aimed at violent
criminals or drug dealers, which will still be permitted under the new
law. All Walker & Co. did was prohibit John Doe investigations aimed
at politicians and their appointees — i.e., themselves. They did this by barring any future probes into allegations of bribery, corruption and campaign-finance violations."
The audacity of Mr. Walker's actions is abominable. Essentially, he and his staff have put themselves above the law. Waaaaay above the law. How is it that no one stands up to this bully? It's sickening. I hope our Mr. Mayor doesn't try this, but it's his speed. Outlaw investigations into myself. Why didn't I think of that? Because I'm a caring human being, that's why. I think that other people are my equals, not ATMs to plunder endlessly.
I've decided to place the dreaded Zoltar Curse™ on him. This crap has GOT to stop. When his wee-wee falls off, Mr. Governor may sing a different tune.
This Saturday, November 21, male strippers will appear at Memorial Hall for Racine's "Girls Night Out." A memorial building built to honor those who fought and died for our freedoms is hardly the place for male strippers, but I've come to expect this sort of trash from the current city administration. They have no sense of, or respect for, history. Every time I see Mr. Mayor's face, I think of a used car salesman blaring his spiel on TV. Slap another coat of paint on a car, put sawdust in the transmission and black pepper in the radiator. Then sell it, Johnny boy, for a huge commission.
Well, that's enough blabbing about politics. Most politicians are born liars. I hate their damned guts. Oh dear.
But I love you and all the other readers of my blog. Thank you for taking some time to read it. I very much appreciate the audience. We are family.

"The famed Bald Eagles from Decorah, Iowa are back on their nest and ready to start a new family! World famous and live streamed via the internet by the Raptor Resource Center, anyone can view the parents raise their eaglets from egg to fledglings from the comfort of their homes. Using infrared cameras and microphones, the eagles can be seen around the clock during the nesting season, which starts in January or February and runs till June."
