The Ice Caps are Gone

Tuesday, March 4, 2014

Al Gore and his scientists were right. I cannot handle this global warming heat. If it stays this hot I am, God forbid, I going to have to move north to Canada. Yep, the Great lakes are almost frozen over, many areas from the mid west to the east are suffering record cold, the ice […]

No Search for Fred Noonan Endures, and No Film Shows He is Long Forgotten

Tuesday, October 20, 2009

Tell me about Fred Noonan. Can you without looking him up? I doubt it. This is another demonstration of how far back the idea of the disposability and unimportance of men goes. This one dates back to the 1930’s. There is no hoopla, no remembrances, no movies, no mention, no search or any thing of […]

More Evidence of Global Warming

Thursday, October 1, 2009

Here you see a picture taken today of “termination dust” a phrase used in Alaska that signals the first snow (usually in late August or very early September) and the end of summer but this picture was taken in Franconia , NH today. A little early, if I am not mistaken. b

Rich Fan, Poor Fan

Sunday, September 27, 2009

Separation of the classes, pure and simple. The rich have privilege and the more modest among us do not. You are treated differently because of the money you have or spend. If you are in the general population, for alcohol your choice is well 3.2 beer and that is it. If you are in a […]

Celebrating Mediocrity, Fire Company Boot Drive

Friday, September 25, 2009

This is a statement about society. Perhaps it is not a scientific study but I would bet that if such a study were to be done there would hardly be any differences discovered. My fire company had a boot drive today to raise funds. My oldest daughter is now a member of the fire company […]

Mulatto, Mulatto, Mulatto

Thursday, September 24, 2009

I can keep it up as long as everyone else, including Obama. As long as I am alive, I will not allow history to be written falsely. If this blog survives 20 or more years please believe me when I say that Obama was NOT the first “black” president. His mother was white; this means […]

Assemblyman Robin Schimminger’s Visit

Sunday, September 13, 2009

Robin is a good friend of mine. Despite that (LOL) he took time out of his bus schedule to visit our fire company (River Road) to present us with the pen that Gov. David Patterson used to sign a bill into law that was originally a request for a change in legislation written by me. […]

Live From Allentown

Saturday, September 5, 2009

I am sitting here in Allentown contemplating the demise of an over 50 year tradition. One of my fathers best friends Joseph Karpinski affectionately known as “Carp” is up in years and recently had a heart attack. He has been the sole proprietor and father hen of us all and of the St Stanislaus Orphanage […]

Erie County Fair

Sunday, August 23, 2009

Today, August 23. 2009, was the last day of the fair, it is the third largest fair in the country beating out almost all state fairs. People in and around the Buffalo, NY area either a very hardy lot, stupid, or both. One has got to question our sanity when so many of us get […]
