COVID-19 numbers are going up- just like last week- which tells us Election Day is not that far away…

When one tells the truth the way this blog does, one begins to notice things that seemingly are not right such as chance encounters with people who are infected with COVID-19 or letters sent to one’s mailbox addressed to George Noory with NO return address. Why George Noory? We sure as hell didn’t open them. Something’s afoot and we are trying to discover what they are. Stay tuned for updates.

Trump Covid-19 Deaths- Note: since Joe Biden became president on January 20, 2021, there have been 450,762 CHI-VI DEATHS IN THE United States- mentally deficient old Joe, by the end of the year, you will have tied the total number seen by the Trump administration in a year of the raging coronavirus pandemic. Under President Trump’s watch, there were 404,645 fatalities from the Chi-Com Bat Virus.  From this point forward, ALL COVID-19 deaths are atop Joe Biden.  He has surpassed President Donald J. Trump’s 15-month number by 47,390 Chi-Com lab-engineered virus deaths in ELEVEN MONTHS.  Joe has accomplished this onerous task in 353 days.  He promised that he would lockdown the virus, NOT the country.

The Castle Music label compiled a ‘best of’ collection for Sandy Denny that came out on April 12, 2005: “Where the Time Goes- Sandy ‘67.”  The album features a collection of 18 glorious tracks running from her earliest days prior to her association with Fairport Convention, Fotheringay, and Fairport Convention again and prior to her final solo career.  Thus, you gets lots of acoustic Sandy mostly alone but with others including a unique collaboration with the Strawbs, another folkie acoustical group from the UK.  We hope you will investigate this one for yourselves, give it a good listen, and then consider adding it to your growing collection of music from this devoted vocalist and songwriter.  You will be so glad you did.  Enjoy.

My colleagues and I no longer share old photos of us, as the price of success means that lunatics and nuts come looking for one. Therefore, we hired local up-and-coming Bakersfield-Oildale, California street artist, Simone, to create facsimiles of us so we can remain somewhat obscure. Ah, well, I began my culinary career in 1969 bussing tables at age 12 and became a cook's apprentice in 1973 at age 17. I have worked all over California, Hawaii, Washington State, and even a brief time in Arizona. Chef Brian Carrick writes from Weedpatch, California. Chef Brian Carrick is a Conservative Republican.

    1. In politics, 10 months moves extremely fast. Who would have thought that the virus was going to derail Donald Trump?


  1. I’ve been involved in a precinct strategy organization. Are to believe we’ve been at it only a year.
    Seems like forever.
    And it seems like it is forever until November.
    But we are trying to recruit and get candidates for the Republican primary in June. Filing is March.
    So much to do. Where us Roto-Rooter, or Adee-Do (am I remembering the right ad on LA TV?) when you need to drain the swamp?
