Pic of the day:   Bords de l’Oise, prés de Pontoise, temps gris, by Camille Pissarro


Fiction is Truth’s elder sister. Obviously. No one in the world knew what truth was till some one had told a story.

Twitter was ablaze yesterday with talk of the debate.  Everyone was there cheering for their candidate.  Everyone.  There was fun to be had for everyone.  Except for fans of Romney.  They seemed kind of quiet most of the debate.  In the beginning they were talking a good game but they grew quiet as their guy began to get his ass handed to him.   By the time things got to the bayonets and horses phase of the debate it was almost as if Mitt Romney’s people had simply walked away from their computers.

It was not until afterwards that they came back to claim victory.  Which was curious because they’re were only a few of them and those few were the only people who thought that he had won.  Even Glenn Beck thought R-money got his ass handed to him.

Had a few people talk funny at me, mostly claiming that Romney had won and that Obama got smoked, mostly.  Funny what people will hear when they want to hear it.  Rather than take my word for it, hit the C-span website and watch it again for yourself.

Romney’s foreign policy can be stated in a very few words.

Whatever Barack does, Romney likes.  Except for the parts where Obama schooled him.

Romney has no clue about the Navy.  He has no clue about what American forces can bring to bear with a lighter yet stronger armed forces.  He seems to think don’t pay attention.  Says he’ll kill our enemies and a few minutes later says we can’t kill our way out of situations.  Really?  Hard to pull that off, son.

Mitt don’t know shit.  But then again, he never has.

But people will vote for him, tens of millions of people will vote for him.

He might even win.

Proof that you can be a complete imbecile and still make it in America.

Ain’t America a great country?


I went for a walk today to take pictures of the woods I live near.  Took around 150 pictures.  I’ll drop a few of them here when I get them downloaded.  Right now they are on a sim card on my wife’s computer.  I haven’t had a chance to see them yet.  I’m sure they aren’t all winners, but since I’ve done this the last few years, I’ve gotten better at it.

I know I got a large number of really good ones.  You’ll see them soon enough.


The framework for the novel is coming out nicely.  Got seven chapters planned out, storyboarded, and the characters are fleshed out pretty well.


That’s it from here, America.  G’night.
