NYC Mayor Vows to Protect His Municipal Identification Program from Donald Trump — Observer

November 10, 2016 § Leave a comment

I’d be interested in how “Mr. Do-Nothing” plans to accomplish this. Is he willing to go up against the US Justice Department and the Attorney General? Doubtful. It’s still politics as usual for this incapable bag of fail. He’d better get his empty promises in before January, because things are going to change, if anything goes as planned.

Bill de Blasio promised the identities of undocumented applicants for the city’s IDNYC program will be protected under a Trump administration.

A new pair of boots is a big deal in my life. I tend to keep these things for decades and have them resoled and conditioned regularly. I don’t buy them often in other words. These will probably be on my feet when I finally croak.

Grateful Dead Graphic

October 2, 2016 § Leave a comment

This is a graphic that was a tag on a commemorative edition guitar that Alvarez released. I’m fortunate enough to own one, which I’ve modified to play like butter. The front of the guitar is screen printed to resemble this graphic, with the sound hole where the lightning bolt is. The dancing bear is on the backside of the headstock, and there’s a mother of pearl lightning bolt inlay on the 12th fret. It’s a lot of fun to play and sounds awesome. I suppose I could take a photo, instead of being lazy.

My Favorite Car of All Time

February 17, 2016 § Leave a comment

I grew up around cars and although I don’t know as much as some mechanics that repair cars for a living, I can hold my own in a garage. And through the years I’d estimate I’ve gone through about 20 cars, and driven a lot more than that, whether that’s me being a designated driver of a Rolls Royce or in a rental car as I was last week, and drove a Jaguar XF for several days.

But if I could only have one car, this would be it. Guards Red Porsche 356n with tan interior. Perfect. Of course, I’d also need the cabrio for those days you can’t have a top. Birthday’s in May.

Did I Mention I Like Dogs?

Finding Your Purpose

Another inspirational and thought-provoking post from Byron worth sharing.

What Matters Most

boysprayer_finalThe following entry is the sermon given on Sunday, January 10, 2016 in St. Andrew’s Chapel by Headmaster Byron Hulsey:

“These are the times that try men’s souls. Winters here are awful. Regardless of how much fun your break was, how awesome your spring break plans are, in this stretch from now until early March, more than any other time, you will wonder what you’re doing here.” So writes our friend Publius in a recent edition of The Anarchist. Now Publius and I don’t agree on everything, but he’s certainly right about this: winter at Woodberry is tough. It’s cold, it’s dark, and it’s gloomy. Guys don’t feel well, struggling to shake a cold before it turns to bronchitis, doing everything possible to avoid the stomach virus when it starts to rifle through the dorms. The academic load can seem unrelenting, the teachers unceasing in their high standards…

A Must Have Show for Your Grateful Dead Collection

August 6, 2015 § Leave a comment

Exactly a month before yours truly was hatched in Atlanta way back in the Dark Ages, The Grateful Dead were up in Boston, performing this classic, epic show at The Ark. They were on sort of an East coast tour, at the time, with Woodstock coming up in August. The actual day of my birth they played at a Seminole Village down in Florida not too far away, and it was an amazing, weird show. Even moreso than usual for the time.
