America the Right Way -Staying Vigilant- December 20 , 2014 – December 21 , 2014 Remember 9/11 ( Weekend Edition)

“Tis the the last weekend before Christmas.

Fa la la la la la la la la

Posting this song to reminisce.

Fa la la la la la la la la

Grandpa, tell me ’bout the good old days
Sometimes it feels like this world’s gone crazy
Grandpa, take me back to yesterday
When the line between right and wrong
Didn’t seem so hazy

Did lovers really fall in love to stay
And stand beside each other, come what may
Promise really something people kept
Not just something they would say

Families really bow their heads to pray
Daddies really never go away
Woah, oh, grandpa, tell me ’bout the good old days

Grandpa, everything is changing fast
We call it progress but I just don’t know
And grandpa, let’s wander back into the past
And paint me the picture of long ago

Did lovers really fall in love to stay
And stand beside each other, come what may
Promise really something people kept
Not just something they would say

Families really bow their heads to pray
Daddies really never go away
Woah, oh, grandpa, tell me ’bout the good old days
Woah, oh, grandpa, tell me ’bout the good old days

Next Up: the liberal retreat Am. Interest

Protestors get their wish… NY Post

OK AG destroying 0Care? George Will

    G’day everyone. Lysie, that ‘grandpa’ song has always been a fav of mine. Jemian, so happy you have the entire family together. You are all separated by such distances most of the time as you pursue your various missions. What a precious time for all of you Rav, getting them tother for Christmas dinner is pretty good! We did our family Christmas yesterday. In an hour or so, DD and SIL take off for Munich; they’ll be in Germany ad Austria thru New Year’s. His French grandfather got a terminal diagnosis last Summer, so the family decided they should all spend this Christmas with him while he’s still with us.

    I’ve been trying to sort out my emotions over the NYPD assassination. Not sure if I’m more angry than sad. All because some guy couldn’t afford to buy hissef some Swisher Sweets, then bullied a little India shop keeper, then gets hisssef killed. To the rescue another dude who was once all decked out in his tux at a formal affair when asked by an obvious racist to fetch coffee. I’m torn between hoping the NYPD union and forces hold their ground in not having deBlasio at the funerals and insisting he be there to see the suffering and grief he and his comrades have caused. Best he stay away. I guess it’s a little personal since one of my bros is retired NYPD, and I’m familiar with the generally unspoken fear the families live in every day when dad (or mom) goes off to work.

    Today is the Winter Solstice, longest night of the year. I read that this will be the longest night in history, as the rotation around the sun is reduced a milli-second each year. At least now the days will be getting longer, roughly at a minute a day. By 2/1 it’s usually light here till 6pm. Just HATE when it’s dark before 5p. The Winter sun will come up tomorrow ….

      Hi ED…thanks for mentioning the Winter Solstice….I was thinking of that earlier.

      Awhile ago, shopping, I could have sworn I heard this message via some song : “have a merry macaroni Christmas”…. Maybe my hearing is going…

    • The Raven says:

      Whats bad is the reactions are way over the top. The Dem’s have incited to riot over broadcasted lies and misinformation. Sick

  2. lysie says:

    Good morning everyone. Let’s knock off the low carbs for a few days. Within reason…:-)

  3. Jemian says:

    Well, on a different note, all our children, spouses and grandkids are here now for the week. One of the grandkids is still inside, though. The Youngest did have her hubby take her in to see if amniotic fluid had been leaking. It hasn’t and she, Carissa, and the husband are back in this house.

    Today JT and his daughter put together a gingerbread house. He did not read the directions first, but I jumped in and suggested they wait and let the icing motar harden at various times and that they should perhaps use glasses ir cans as scaffolding until the joints dry. It looks good now and a very enjoyable time for all concerned.

  4. Molly Pitcher says:

    What a way to start Christmas week. My heart goes out to the families. In cleveland the word is out that one gang has declared war on the police who are supposed to be very, very vigilant.

  5. Molly Pitcher says:

    Speaking of dogs, we have a service dog missing in the area. An article in the local paper will hopefully help locate him. Those dogs are a real blessing to their owners, and not easy to replace. Earlier in the Fall, my husband met a new student at the university…an older woman…she is a survivor of the Twin tower 9/11 attack, and uses a service dog now to help her cope with whatever trauma still affects her.

    • lysie says:

      You know I feelings about dogs. They comfort. They alert. They protect. They love. They humor.

      Back from Al’s and Lucille’s house. At 90 years old, Lucille could hold her own with many younger people. She has a delightful sense of humor and a contagious laugh.

    • The Raven says:

      Our lab decided to play in the middle of the night. For some odd reason, he grabbed the dish towel from the oven handle and did who know’s what with it. I found it in the living room alongside a paper towel scrap (dumpster diving in the trash?)

  6. tillacum says:

    Thanks Rave. The cartoon depicts the strength of this pRESIDENT. A pity.

  7. Molly Pitcher says:

    Well, we had fun last night….since it was a Christmas party, I heard little or no politics, but did exchange a couple of understood knowing looks with a fellow conservative when the week’s events and “troubles” came up by chance.

  8. lysie says:

    Good morning everyone.

    • lysie says:

      Later today we will be going to our dear friends from Monday music, Lucille’s and Al’s house, to help them pack. Their landlord raised the rent…..drastically. They will be moving to a Senior Housing apartment.

    • The Raven says:

      Love that Judds song!- see Bill’s Talking Points……….and I’d love to help my neighbor pack 🙂

      Morning quote:

      In the past four years, the Democratic Party and the progressive movement have been dealt devastating losses at the ballot box, in large part because voters rejected their policies as violations of fundamental liberties.

      Yet rather than debate the merits of their policies, many on the left responded with a coordinated campaign to suppress free speech—primarily by intimidating, demonizing and silencing the people who opposed and defeated them.


      This is the year that the Democrat party voted for a Constitutional Amendment to repeal the First Amendment. Absolutely absurd and Marxist.

    • lysie says:

      Thanks for that video. I pray Bill is right.

      So, there’s a little …ahem..tension in your neighborhood? He must be a LIB.

    • Molly Pitcher says:

      Aw . That’s great that you can help them. Hope it all goes with the transition, too, for them.

      Thanks for the breakfast and song, thoughts. I find myself thinking about the past, and probably, no, I am sure…idealizing it. That’s pretty easy to do, but there sure were some better habits, norms, standards then, even if they weren’t always lived up to by us, fallen creatures that we were, and are.

    • The Raven says:

      I changed the quote to something akin to your song. My neighbors are OK…it’s their darn dog…….constant barking.

    • tillacum says:

      A lovely breakfast.
