Right To Die: the next right to work for.

I agree that Jesus and the Republican Party know better than I do when it is time for me to die. Still, I want my say in the matter.

FDR ---> Clinton? R U shitting me?

FDR -- C.C.C., W.P.A., S.S., Glass-Steagall.

Bill -- Repealed Glass-Steagall. We know how that worked out.

"End Welfare as we know it." (Translate "Fuck the poor.&quot

A couple of wars here and there. Kosovo, Black Hawk Down.

The next logical progression ---

Hillary -- End ALL Welfare?

Goldman Sachs paid her $1/4mil. to run her mouth. They must expect somethin' in return.

Lets see. Iraq may be up for another invasion because of ISIS. How do you think she will decide as president with the encouragement of Republican war mongers.

Happy Mother's Day, (kind of) for me.

I started becoming serious about photography after Joyce died in June, 2013. I needed something to do to take my mind off of losing Joyce. A few thousand photos later, there are maybe 50 that are worthy of being printed.

The photos run from landscape to birds. More and more of my attention goes to photographing birds.

I sold about 50 of my prints but have not put much effort into selling. Still, twelve of my photos were sold to a restaurant in Maplewood, N.J. They hang on different parts of the restaurant and I must say that it gives me pleasure to go into the restaurant and see my work displayed.

Looking at my photo book, the restaurant owner saw a photo of a Tern that was holding a fish in her beak to feed to her chick. Chick is there with its mouth wide open, waiting impatiently. I ordered the print on aluminum and it was delivered to the restaurant on Friday.

Today, I went into the restaurant. The 11 x 14 photo of the mother Tern feeding her chick was on the counter next to the register with a stick-on note, "HAPPY MOTHER'S DAY"

It made my day.

Help - travel information

We are planning a motorcycle ride next week. Taking the ferry from Cape May to Lewis and then drive to Va., Williamsburg.

Figuring from Rt. 1 and then west to the secondary highway across the bay.

Is it a scenic ride? Heavy traffic?

Any other info?

Lost my friend yesterday, Quite a guy,

Frank was the guy whose table you wanted to be at when you were at a social affair. Funny, upbeat and always with a smile on his face, he could keep you laughing for hours.

I could tell you stories but my favorite was when he was working for A.D.P. in the '60's. Company would fly him first class from N.J. to Ca. After one of the flights, he called his wife to tell her he sat next to Harry Belafonte. Nothing more was said about that... Plane arrived, I'm safe and so forth.

The next morning, there's a knock on the door. His wife answers and there are flowers and a card,

"With my deepest sympathy,
Harry Belafonte."

I miss him.

Obama's playing 3D chess - TPP. We just gotta trust him.

Youse people bitching about Obama pushing TPP, just wait.

You recall when he was gonna renegotiate NAFTA? Well, he's going to complete the TPP negotiations and then tell Wall Street, "If you want me to sign TPP, you've got to give up NAFTA." That'l fix the bastards.

Just wait, you'll see. Obama is on our side.

He's been playing 3D chess all along.

And if you think this is a great plan, wait till Hillary gets to playing 4D chess with the banksters.
