Everyone around me, family and helpers, are in the Trump bubble. Only exception my cleaning lady and one or 2 others.

'No pizza!?!?! What did you guys EAT??'

A few yrs ago I told a group of college kids that I 1st had pizza my freshman yr in college (fall 1957) and that there had been no pizza places in the city where I grew up.

One young woman, who had been checking her tms, heard my statement and responded with this horrified question.

She and the others could not imagine such a pitiful, deprived existence.

Anyone remember playing jacks? We played all the time in the 50s. Do kids still play jacks?

The best ball, we thought, was a discarded golf ball.

Bad Moon Rising 1969-- prophecy or on a loop that gets worse ea time around??

Some shots could have been from my life. The older woman standing then walking looked so much like my gramma.

Quote from In the Way, a novel written in 1897 by Grace Livingston Hill (a popular conservative Christian author of the era).

T wants to withdraw security clearance of Brennan, Clapper, et al. See Adam Siverman at

See Adam Silverman post today at balloon-juice.com. He explains what T can and CANNOT do and the consequences of what T wants to do.

Strongly recommend Adam's post. (And his other posts at balloon-juice.com.)

'Die Luft der Freiheit weht' 1styr student translated:'the air of freedom hurts'

Stanford's motto is the German phrase for 'the wind of freedom is blowing.'

Wehen is infinitive for 'to blow/wave' -- weh is German for 'hurt/pain', as in es tut weh for 'it hurts'

This PAINFUL mistranslation was made in a 1st yr German class at Stanford in the early 60s.
