The Sunday morning sidewalk

The sidewalk is cold and covered with snow.. They say a warm up is coming. I fear the warmup won't last longer than a few days, though.. it's just been too cold and snowy to break that pattern rapidly..Sometimes weather is dramatic, but patterns get really difficult to break. Backs get broken easily when snowing feet of snow, though. And on that note: Another one is coming.
For anyone in the white shaded area—you know, the folks who have feet of snow on the ground—this is a scary image. It’s another ‘little’ storm coming for Monday into Tuesday..  Shovels and plows need to get ready one more time.
So is the news.
So get ready for that.

Sochi score: Finally a moment that the United States can be proud of as they win in a shootout with the Russian Ice Hockey team.

The future is now: VICE interviewed a man who wants to download brains..

This is a disturbing story (too close to my own home base as well for my comfort) .. Nineteen-year-old Satanist Miranda Barbour said she and her 22-year-old husband killed a man in Port Treverton, PA in a sadistic way.. she also just gave an interview to the local newspaper, the DAILY ITEM, that quotes her commenting that she killed 22 people across the country so far in a Satanist romp.. She told the paper she can pinpoint them on a map and 'stopped counting' after 22 deaths.. According to the paper, the FBI has been inquiring into the case, giving some more credibility to her claims of multiple killings.. A disturbing read..  The story is also making national attention -- it is another example of why you should be very careful on Craigslist (FOX NEWS source)

The sky is falling again: Another expired spy satellite will crash to Earth.. A Sunday impact coming..

The mystery rock on Mars solved: Scientists say it's a piece of a larger rock that broke and was moved by the Rover..

This is not the way everyone wants to start a Sunday, but here you go: Miley Cyrus' new BANGERZ TOUR starting off with a large hot dog and lots of crotch grabbing..

STRANGER THINGS 2 looks incredible

The newest STRANGER THINGS 2 trailer hit on Friday the 13th .. amazing timing as always with the fine people at Netflix..

The excitement over this program is incredible. Not only are people re-watching and re-binging the first season in preparation, but there is an equal amount of re-watching and analyzing of the newest trailers..

Before discussion.. take a glance:

My initial thought: This is actually the weaker of the teasers and trailers for season 2.. Yes, I am inclined to wonder why Eleven is more androgynous  .. why she has more hair now and no one shaved it. why she is out of the upside down and eating Eggos in the normal world..

So many questions about her. But the trailer didn't pay much attention to her--I think on purpose. Instead we glimpsed into the post-pubescent boys and now new friends of another gender planning something, just as the world is being taken over by giant squid creatures from the upside down.

Not viewed at all? Mike's mom and dad. Barb..

Forgive me…


Yes, indeed.. a hurricane-ish type storm is about to hit Ireland..

Hurricane Ophelia is the 10th consecutive hurricane to form in the Atlantic basin this year. According to University of Miami hurricane expert Brian McNoldy, the last time ten consecutive storms became a hurricane was 1893. While a very interesting factoid, the "elephant in the room" is that Ophelia is headed to Ireland. It is rare, but not unprecedented.

There are a few interesting things about this.. First off, there have been really rare occasions that storms of this nature made it as far as Ophelia may..

Actually there have been only a handful in the past years since about, oh, 1851..

From 1851 to 2010, only 10 extratropical storms, typically the tail ends of tropical cyclones, have hit within 200 miles (322 kilometers) of Ireland....Hurricane Debbie was the only tropical hurricane to make landfall in that area, clipping the far northwest of the British Isles in 1961.

But this is 2017--the year that mayhem on …


Real news has become surreal.. I find many headlines of our current day to relate back to THE STAND.. I know the comparison is a little fuzzy, and my overdoing it may be annoying to some. But when the strange similarities to me are striking.. The STAND starts in Texas. And in real life Texas is the center stage for the Ebola scare. And even worse, the endless stories of people 'coming back to life' are getting bizarre--though we can assume that parts of Africa cannot truly pinpoint the cause of death, so somene coming back to life is moot: The person probably wasn't dead. At least we hope they weren't.. Though SNOPES can tell us it's a hoax, try to explain the high strangeness of ABC NEWS filming a dead man and suddenly seeing him moving..

Continuing to the real news of the day (though it seems like fiction half of the time), focus is now turning on how Thomas Duncan got inot the United States. The Washington POST is giving us an hour by hour synopsis of what happen…
