Henry Kissinger dead; age 100.

Henry Kissinger 1923 - 2023
CNBCHenry Kissinger dead.

One less globalist in the world. Huzzah!

Henry Kissinger Song - Monty Python (Eric Idle)


Henry Kissinger
How I'm missing yer
You're the Doctor of my dreams
With your crinkly hair and your glassy stare

And your machiavellian schemes
I know they say that you are very vain
And short and fat and pushy but at least you're not insane
Henry Kissinger

How I'm missing yer
And wishing you were here

Henry Kissinger
How I'm missing yer
You're so chubby and so neat
With your funny clothes and your squishy nose

You're like a German parakeet
All right so people say that you don't care
But you've got nicer legs than Hitler
And bigger tits than Cher

Henry Kissinger
How I'm missing yer
And wishing you were here

Happy Thanksgiving.

Make a joyful noise unto the LORD, all ye lands.

Serve the LORD with gladness:
come before his presence with singing.

Know ye that the LORD he is God:
it is he that hath made us, and not we ourselves;
we are his people, and the sheep of his pasture.

Enter into his gates with thanksgiving,
and into his courts with praise:
be thankful unto him, and bless his name.

For the LORD is good;
his mercy is everlasting;
and his truth endureth to all generations.
– Psalm 100

Remember those who - for so many reasons - are unable to be with their loved ones, especially our deployed Troops. 
Remember those in need - help them if you are in a position to do so.


Travel safely.

Kool & The Gang Drummer George Brown Dead at 74.

Breitbart: Brown, who had been battling stage-4 lung cancer, died at his house on Thursday night, a representative told TMZ.

“When asked to describe his music, Brown always replied, ‘The sound of happiness[.]”, the rep added.

"Celebration", from 1980's Celebrate!

"Too Hot", from 1979's Ladies' Night.

"Jungle Boogie" from 1974's Soul Train.

"Get Down On It", from 1981's Something Special

Kool & The Gang (Wiki).

Don't pretend that in 1980 you didn't get out on the dance floor with your girlfriend when "Celebration" was played, because you know you did. Hopefully your unbuttoned shirt wasn't showing excessive amounts of chest hair and gold chains. White Shoes, too? Oh Noooooooooooooooooooooooo! 🤣

TV Sitcom themes without lyrics.

Don't know where this meaningless bit of trivia floated into my brain. I can tell you it occurred during a marathon clean and toss session. My physical labor=wandering, mindlessness hating every minute of it.🤣

Without doing a Search, these are the sit-coms I could think of that don't have lyrics. Voice-over narration doesn't count (i.e. Soap). No animated or cartoon series allowed. (i.e. Simpsons).


Barney Miller




I Dream of Jeannie 

The Ropers (Lowest budget ever.)

Police Squad

Sledge Hammer!

Archie Bunker's Place 

What's Happening


The Bob Newhart Show 



Fawlty Towers

Keeping Up Appearances

Monty Python's Flying Circus 

That's all I got. There has to be way more. Which ones can you think without searching? Drop a comment.

Monday's Friday Morning Music Video

"Angry" by The Rolling Stones, from 2013's 2023's Hackney Diamonds.

Decent single, imho, that harkens back to their style from 1980 & 1981's Emotional Rescue and Tattoo You. I'm hearing the album is getting good reviews.

Kind of funny the video using CGI to de-age them about 50 years.😏 Who made that decision?

The girl in the car is easy on the eyes.👀

What's new?

Made a valiant attempt in getting caught up with everyone on the blog roll. Didn't quite make it all the way but everything and everyone is still around. Everyone okay out there? Hope so! 

Anything new? Besides Biden's Handlers driving head-on into World War 3 involving every nation on earth? Is Build Back Better working now? Someone said the DJIA closed at over 55,000 on Thursday and I overheard someone I don't know saying BitCoin is at One Billion Dollars. I've been away for so long.

A few chilly, under the average, days here but a warm up is supposed to happen this week. Joy!

Still in a process of sorting, tossing, keeping. Just a different area, not the garage, although there's more to do there. This is going to be a while.

The My closets in the basement...ugh. Boxes, stacked atop others. Ugh...ugh. If I do it inebriated does that make the task and decision-making process easier?

I keep waiting for Hillary to announce her run for president. C'mon Hill, don't disappoint me. I made sizeable wagers, dammit, that she'd enter the race.

There's a video ready for Monday Morning Music! Ooh-Ahh! But I'll be AFK for a while. Feel free to drop comments. I'll check in sporadically. Stay Safe out There!

Veterans Day.

by Charles M. Province, © 1970, 2005:

It is the Soldier, not the minister
Who has given us freedom of religion.

It is the Soldier, not the reporter
Who has given us freedom of the press.

It is the Soldier, not the poet
Who has given us freedom of speech.

It is the Soldier, not the campus organizer
Who has given us freedom to protest.

It is the Soldier, not the lawyer
Who has given us the right to a fair trial.

It is the Soldier, not the politician
Who has given us the right to vote.

It is the Soldier who salutes the flag,
Who serves beneath the flag,
And whose coffin is draped by the flag,
Who allows the protester to burn the flag.
