Finally, comedian Joan Rivers was rushed to New York’s Mt.

- 2015 Friday: According to Brainy History, Greek judge Vassiliki Thanou takes the oath of office as the nation’s interim prime minister after last week’s resignation of Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras; new elections for the position will take place in September.
- 2016 Sunday: At Glasgow Airport in Scotland, police arrest two United Airlines pilots for being intoxicated. They were preparing to leave the airport with 141 souls aboard their aircraft when someone alerted the police to their possible inebriation and police responded.

Meanwhile, clashes between Syrian Kurd forces and Turkish-backed thugs endangers U.S. assets in the region who are on the ground, fighting with the Kurds to beat the ISIS thugs running amok.
- 2017 Monday: In a show of force, North Korean thug dictator Kim Jong Un orders his military flunkies to fire off a battery of missiles which overfly Japan.

Elsewhere, Barack Obama’s home country of Kenya puts into law the world’s toughest plastic bag ban, one that will cost a person a fine of $38,000 as well as possible four years in the hoosegow. Wow.

- 2018 Tuesday: In Detroit, at the Charles H. Wright Museum of African American History, the Queen of Soul Music- Aretha Franklin[vi]– lies in state in a 24-carat gold coffin. We miss you, Aretha! Meanwhile, Puerto Rico upgrades its death toll from the 2017 Hurricane Maria from 65 deaths to 2,975.
- 2019 Wednesday: Much to orgasmic frenzy among U.S. climate change activists, little Greta Thunberg, the Scandinavian global warming crusader, arrives in New York City after sailing across the North Atlantic in an emission’s free vessel. She would return home via jetliner or, so we were told. What a gal! Elsewhere, U.S. Senator Kirsten “Whitey” Gillibrand, D-N.Y., throws in the towel on her bid to win the Democratic Party’s 2020 presidential nomination. She tossed her panties into the ring un-officially on Stephen Colbert’s show on January 15, 2019, but did not make it official until Sunday, March 04, 2019. In dropping out, she announced her bailout via Twitter and became the fifth Democrat to leave the race following behind (1) Eric “Farts” Swalwell (July 08, 2019) [vii]; (2) John Hickenlooper (August 15, 2019) [viii]; (3) Jay Inslee (August 21, 2019) [ix]; and (4) Seth Moulton (August 23, 2019) [x].
- 2020 Friday: The death toll in the United States from Hurricane Laura now rests at six and the town and surrounding environs of Lake Charles, Louisiana, suffered the brunt of the landfall what with being mostly destroyed and at least 1 million people in the region with no power. Meanwhile, a racial equality march in Washington, D.C., is set to commence purportedly in honor of the 57th Anniversary of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.’s famed “I Have a Dream” speech. We shall see if it devolves into mob violence as last night in the nation’s capital, following the final night of the Republican National Convention, violence exploded shortly after midnight. As attendees of the RNC convention tried to make their way to where their vehicles were parked, violent mobs assaulted them as they left the White House grounds. Screaming mobs surrounded Sen. Rand Paul and his wife and for several minutes, it got pretty hairy Elsewhere, Japan’s longest-serving Prime Minister Shinzo Abe announces his resignation due to poor health. God bless! Next, United Airlines announces that 3,000 pilots will be grounded by October if the country does not begin reopening. Finally, Lord & Taylor clothing stores announced they will be closing down and laying off their employees six years short of hitting the chain’s 200th anniversary. How sad.
- 2020 Friday A: Sadly, “Black Panther” star Chadwick Boseman died at age 43 after a four-year battle with colon cancer. Meanwhile, sadly today, we do not have the stock market or the current COVID-19 statistics due to an attempted Chi-Com attack into our systems that shut us down for nearly three days. Sorry.

- 2021 Saturday E: U.S. National Debt and Gasoline Prices in the Four States in which we have Chef-Authors– Thanks to the Biden administration, gasoline prices continue rising by the day and NOTE- these prices are sans TAXES- in California, gasoline prices have risen to $4.397 per gallon, $2.945 in Florida, $4.071 in Hawaii, and $3.899 in Washington state. [xix] Let us look at one other location- Utah: $3.823. We are going to do something else that could be fun- gasoline prices around the world going from cheapest to highest. The next country on the list has the next lowest gasoline price in the world- Austria: $5.856 per U.S. Gallon.[xx] Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $28,696,517,002,798 and the Democrats are adding TRILLIONS of dollars to it, not BILLIONS but frigging TRILLIONS.[xxi] Cloward and Piven causing problems like they always do which is not good- those two bastards should have met their ends on the chopping block. As for holders of U.S. debt, after Thailand, the next largest holder of U.S. debt is Germany with $75 billion of U.S. national debt (it is important to note that these numbers vary every day with one nation after another jockeying for top position.

- 2022 Sunday: This past Friday, the U.S. Department of Justice released yet another embarrassing attempt at justifying the raid on Mar-a-Lago. Sadly, with all the redactions, it said nothing other than that this is yet another attempt at destroying Donald Trump. What is wrong with these people? Everything they do to only makes things worse for the Democrats. All this talk about the ‘red tidal wave disappearing’ is little more than a false narrative. Every Republican I know is voting against every Democrat. Many Democrats are voting against Democrats. Independents are voting against Democrats. NO one wants the garbage these socialist-communist losers are pushing, NO one. The funny thing is, they are absolutely oblivious to it. OBLIVIOUS. And that’s good. The groundswell is growing, the Dems are facing a cataclysmic loss heretofore unseen in American politics. The only thing is, will the Joestapo come to their rescue and corrupt the 2022 Elections? That remains to be seen. We must stop them. Chef Goldie McNamara.

Hanging in private and public galleries and followed by many fans encircling the globe—her works instill awe because of her artistic brilliance and personal beauty.

You will not be disappointed so please: do yourself a favor and go there as quickly as your fingers can tap the letters on your keyboard.

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:
The Beach Boys did it again: released an updated version of an older album- “Friends”- on December 07, 2018. Here is what we said: the Beach Boys continued struggling along what with Brian Wilson- principal songwriter, falsetto vocalist, and guiding light now being in a mental state of malaise. Thus, the other Beach Boys had to step up and tackle a larger portion of the songwriting. Still, Brian Wilson’s name shows up on many of the tracks as well as his vocals, but the album suffered poor sales. This is not to say that the album is not a joy because it is, albeit an extremely short one. Some say it’s the band’s first ‘TM’ or their ‘transcendental meditation album’ as it has a spiritual, upbeat flow. The lineup on “Friends” (June 24, 1968) features Brian Wilson (bass, piano, organ, vocals), Mike Love (vocals and saxophones), Carl Wilson (vocals and guitars), Dennis Wilson (drums and vocals), Alan Jardine (guitars, bass, and vocals), and Bruce Johnston (vocals and bass). There are some wonderful songs on this album to be sure: the title track, “Wake the World,” “Be Here in the Morning,” “When a Man Needs a Woman,” “Passing By,” and “Busy Doing Nothing.” Well, you get all this and a whole lot more. We hope you will seek this one out as it is a delightful record, one we wholeheartedly love, enjoy, and recommend. Back in the 1970s, one could find it packaged with “Smiley Smile” in a two-for-one. Now, you can get an expanded edition so check it out.

[i] We hope to promote the music of the Soft Machine at some point within the next 3-5 years. We hope you will be with us when that celebrated day arrives. We thank you.
[ii] We will present the music of Chicago sometime in 2030 so we hope you will remain with us until then.
[iii] Not clear as to when we present the music of the Fairport Convention and of Richard Thompson, their famed guitarist but we sure as heck hope we do within the next decade.
[iv] We look forward to doing the music of Ike and Tina Turner as well as their separate solo efforts one day.
[v] We expect to do the music of Jethro Tull, Wild Turkey, Ian Anderson, and Paris sometime in the next 5-6 years. We hope you will still be with us.
[vi] Not sure as to when we will get around to doing the great Motown acts but when we do, we will do ALL of them including Aretha Franklin.
[vii] Congressman Eric Swalwell, well-known for his lack of intellect, entered the fray on Monday, April 08, 2019, and was among those sorry low-end losers who had to beg for donations so he could appear on the debate stage. There was no way in hell that anyone would ever vote the so-called ‘Farter-in-Chief’ for anything higher than the House seat he now holds.
[viii] Colorado Governor John Hickenlooper entered the race on March 04, 2019. His most notable contribution to the Democratic Party’s nomination process was an admission that he ‘took his mother to see the porn classic, “Deep Throat,” not knowing fully what it was,’ he claimed mom asked to see the movie. Think what you will. STRANGE.
[ix] Governor Jay Inslee jumped into the running on March 01, 2019, and his big thing- and only thing- was that he was going to devote 100-percent of his time dueling with climate change.
