KY....... .........

Here's some Monday feel-good for ya.....

Guy’s security camera catches kid tearing it up on his driveway almost every day, so he decides to do something about it.

For anyone who can't open the Twitter page or play the video, this kid on a small bike goes along with the adult dog-walker each day and makes a habit of doing a diversionary loop around this neighbor's big concrete driveway. The owner sees it on his security system camera, so he paints the kid a cool track on the driveway, then the thing goes viral and even NASCAR gets involved.

Thread unroll, see: https://threadreaderapp.com/thread/1299074699385663488.html

Public plea: I’m trying to find the guy that has the driveway, and the kid. I’ve got NASCAR drivers who want to send them stuff! If you know who they are, please DM me.
UPDATE: All of you are amazing! Thanks to your input I’ve identified the guy in the video with the driveway. I’ve reached out to him directly, he wants to remain anonymous. One person found the driveway- it’s in Salt Lake City. Still looking for the kid, NASCAR has gifts for him!
SECOND UPDATE: Neighbor just sent me this photo taken about an hour ago. Guy is still doing the chalk track, and the kid was there riding it!
THIRD UPDATE: Video is by @CanyonChasers, with the goal of improving rider education.
FOURTH UPDATE: Have finally identified the guy in the video and the kid on the bike, and connected them with the amazing @KurtBusch. Kurt’s going to be sending then some cool racing stuff! 🏁🏁🏁🏁🏁
FIFTH UPDATE: @NASCAR Driver @JHNemechek has some great racing stuff he wants to send the homeowner and the kid too! Connecting them now.
SIXTH UPDATE: Superstar race car driver and all-around nice guy @ClayMillican is sending the homeowner and kid some racing items too. Thank you Clay!
SEVENTH UPDATE: Shift Auto Society @SHIFTSOCIETYFUN, a private country club for auto enthusiasts (how cool is that?!), wants to send the guy in the video and the kid some stuff too. Making it happen now.
EIGHTH UPDATE: You’re looking at the “garage” of a future NASCAR driver or motocross champion. The kid’s father sent me this photo of his son’s gear standing by at home, ready for the boy’s next roll around the neighborhood and on the chalk racetrack. Start your engines!
NINTH UPDATE: CBS News reveals homeowner and kid- meet Dave and Quinn, and here’s there story!

This is what's in the kid's garage....

That's what I call good human community!


Got an email from James Taylor today inviting me to watch an inaugural concert.....

online at 8:00 p.m. Eastern tonight. Requires a minimum of $5 contribution to the inaugural committee via ActBlue.

See: https://secure.actblue.com/donate/pic2021_fr_01172021concert

Love James Taylor and also gives me an opportunity to pitch in a little for inauguration costs. Apparently, they email us a link tonight to access the concert....

As I'm sure you saw, we'll be joined by a lot of special guests tonight, all performing music and speaking about the truths our country was founded on and what unites us -- not what divides us.

I'm excited to appear, virtually, with Keegan-Michael Key, Debra Messing, AJR, Michael Bivins, Connie Britton, Sophia Bush, Jaime Camil, DJ Cassidy, Cher, Fall Out Boy, Ben Harper, Carole King, Kal Penn, will.i.am, and more. And the highlight will be the chance to hear from the incoming President and Vice President.

I believe this will be an important and much-needed event, and with the virtual nature of this inauguration, it doesn't matter where you are. If you can chip in a few bucks to inaugurate our 46th president, you can be a part of this event, making it the most accessible inauguration concert in history.

So please, join us tonight at 8 PM ET. Click here to chip in anything you can afford or to select a special grassroots package if you would like some commemorative gear, and the team will send you the link to access the event in your receipt.

Also, this memo....

Thanks for joining our team! Inauguration Day is fast approaching and we’re so excited to have you on board.

When President-elect Joe Biden and Vice President-elect Kamala Harris are sworn in on January 20, we’ll usher in a new era of building our country back better -- and it’s all thanks to supporters like you.

As we prepare for the big day, check out the Presidential Inaugural Committee store to make sure you have everything you need for the historic day and follow us on Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, and YouTube for more on the Inauguration.

Thanks again!

On edit: For anyone that contributed but did not receive an email receipt, send an email to info@bideninaugural.org and they will respond with the link. When you start the video, it will place you in a cue with some random recorded music for a while and it then gives you the concert. I had that problem and they responded within 15-minutes.

Breaking Down the Police Response to a Pro-Trump Riot Vs. a George Floyd Protest

Breaking Down the Police Response to a Pro-Trump Riot Vs. a George Floyd Protest
NBC New York

As the world watched the breach of the U.S. Capitol in shock, many couldn’t help but wonder why the underwhelming police response to President Trump’s rioting supporters was so different from the massive show of force seen this summer at a Washington D.C. Black Lives Matter protest following the death of George Floyd. NBCLX’s Fernando Hurtado talked to Frank Straub, an expert in critical incident responses at the National Police Foundation, for a breakdown of the police reaction to both events.

If we had other than right-wing fascist leadership in charge, police would have been adequately manned to control this crowd.

"There was an inadequate number of law enforcement officers to protect the perimeter."

Capitol Police chief to resign; arrests linked to attack still coming

This is a good overview article on the current status of issues related to the fascist riot in D.C.:

Capitol Police chief to resign; arrests linked to attack still coming

The head of the U.S. Capitol Police will resign, effective next week, after Wednesday’s violent riot.
As the cleanup continues, D.C. police on Thursday posted the pictures of people of interest in Wednesday’s attack on the U.S. Capitol, hoping the public can help identify them. The Capitol Police later called the violence “criminal riotous behavior,” and D.C. Mayor Muriel Bowser called the events “domestic terrorism.”

More than 90 people have been arrested so far, with more arrests likely.
Later Thursday afternoon, the head of the Capitol Police union also called on Sund to resign, saying the riot “should never have happened.” Gus Papathanasiou said in a statement that a lack of planning led to officers being exposed to violent protesters storming the Capitol and that officers lacked the backup and equipment needed to control rioters.
4 dead in attack

A woman identified as Ashli Babbitt, 35, of California, was killed by a Capitol Police officer in the building as people tried to force their way into the House chamber, Sund said in the statement.

Three others died of medical emergencies in the chaos. The D.C. police identified them as Rosanne Boyland, 34, of Kennesaw, Georgia; Kevin Greeson, 55, of Athens, Alabama; and Benjamin Philips, 50, of Ringtown, Pennsylvania.

Some personal details on the Nashville bombing suspect....

on the Nashville Tennessean via Knox News.com:

Anthony Quinn Warner, self-employed computer guru ID'd as lone Nashville bomber, killed in blast
Natalie Allison
Nashville Tennessean

Link: https://www.knoxnews.com/story/news/crime/2020/12/27/anthony-quinn-warner-confirmed-person-interest-nashville-explosion/4052711001/

Who was Tony Warner?

Warner grew up in Antioch and attended Antioch High School, graduating in the mid-1970s before settling down in the same community and working various IT jobs. But in just the past month, Warner appeared to put his affairs in order.
Yearbooks from Antioch High School show Warner, a short teenager with glasses, played on the school’s golf team.
Steve Schmoldt and his wife have lived next door to Warner for 25 years. He described Warner as “low-key” and friendly, though “some people would say he’s a little odd.” “You never saw anyone come and go,” Schmoldt said of Warner’s home. “Never saw him go anywhere. As far as we knew, he was kind of a computer geek that worked at home.”
The neighbors never talked about politics or religion. Warner never gave any indication of any closely held ideology. “I can tell you as far as politics, he never had any yard signs or flags in his window or anything like that. If he did have any political beliefs he kept, that was something he kept to himself.

The article also said Warner does not have a public presence on social media or other websites.


Impact on communications and air traffic potentially caused by Nashville explosion.

Hell hath frozen over....

Right Wing Watch @RightWingWatch

Televangelist Pat Robertson declares that Biden will be president and that Trump "lives in an alternate reality," "is very erratic," and should not run again in 2024: "You've had your day and it's time to move on."

KY...... .....

Politico & Mary Trump: Trump's lost before. This time's different.

Trump’s lost before. This time’s different.

12/18/2020 07:13 PM EST


Donald Trump has never had a week like the week he just had. On the heels of the Supreme Court’s knock-back and the Electoral College’s knockout, some of his most reliable supporters — Mitch McConnell, Vladimir Putin, Newsmax — all acknowledged and affirmed the fact of the matter. Trump is a loser. This is new territory for Trump....

“He’s never been in a situation in which he has lost in a way he can’t escape from,” Mary Trump, his niece and the author of the fiercely critical and hugely bestselling book about him and their family, told me the other day.
The only moment in his life that remotely compares to what’s happening right now is early 1990, when Trump was mired in a high-profile marital breakup and billions of dollars in debt. That spring, according to Vanity Fair, Trump ordered in burgers and fries and stayed up late in bed, staring at the ceiling. Sometimes, he paged through periodicals looking for his name.

But even when he was all but broke, he got to keep living in the penthouse of Trump Tower, the building that had made him famous. “He was always there in his castle,” Alan Marcus, Trump’s publicist later on in the ‘90s, told me. This time, he’s getting evicted.

This is the collapse of one of the world's worse psychopathic narcissists EVER, in line with those like Saddam Hussein and Napoleon.

Some fear he may be on the way to a complete mental breakdown. Fingers crossed that he won't do something even more extreme and insane before inauguration day. We just want him gone for good.

Excellent explainers on energy-related topics here...

The narrator for these YouTube videos speaks clearly and in a not too complex fashion:

Just Have a Think



Why don't we all just use Geothermal Energy?

I sent this link to my daughter the school teacher for use by her students, although they are excellent for any adults having an interest in the energy sciences.
