OMG! It’s Hot as Fuck Outside

The Summer of 2013 is going down in history as “Toasty”. Records are being broken all over the Southwest. The forecast for Death Valley this weekend is 130 in the shade. FOUR degrees short of the all time high. Phoeniz Arizona might hit 120. Two degrees off the record. Las Vegas will top out at 117. This heat wave is expected to last through the weekend when it will cool down to what we call “Sweater Weather”. You folks might call it 90 degrees.


The Only Flying Focker Wulf FW190

A crashed FW-190 was found in a birch forest outside of Leningrad back in 1989. It was recovered in 1991 and passed through a couple of owners. Paul Allen funded the final restoration and the aircraft took to the air again in November, 2010. If the Me-109 was a Corvette, then the FW-190 was a Buick.

Who was Alex Okrent?

I have a confession. From time to time I peek into barrackobama.com. Today, I found this little blurp at the bottom.


Three Shots at Fathers Day

When I was eight I remember being on the business end of an ass whooping and as I cried myself to sleep I vowed to be a better Dad than what I got stuck with. FYI: Dad delivered said ass whooping right after I burned down our basement. Feel free to judge.


Hey Barry, Guess What Happened in Egypt Today

Remember when Obama and Secretary Clinton and the rest of the gang were touting “The Arab Spring”? That the green shoots of democracy were growing in Egypt and around the Middle East.
