My uncle passed away on Monday morning. He was a good, proud man..

His role in this planet, for what I can take from his life, was to be an inspiration for his children, his wife, his co-workers, and his extended family. Even though cancer ravaged every part of his body, his attitude was steadfast and his mission was strong: To live another day, and die some other one..

His battle was lost.
But he was still the victor..

Sometimes death is not a surprise, nor is it the worst case scenario. When someone is destroyed by a vicious circle of disease that never ends with radiation that kills, living becomes more difficult. The possible becomes less likely: To recover fully..

The man I knew on this planet has now met his fate.. The reaction from those who find out: He is in a better place.

And I hope he is..

For those who have read any of the text presented on this website since its inclusion into the World War superhighway web of lies and endless websites that offer up opinions, you may already know: I don’t know what happens when someone dies. And neither do you..

You can assume you do, pray you do..hope you do. But until you actually succumb to the fate you’re meant to, you will not know what door closes and which opens.. You won’t know if the light is where you go. Or if that’s just a trick, and the hillbilly with a bug zapper awaits your arrival on the other side.

So with that being said.. Nothing else can be.
Death gives inspiration for tears, fears, emotions, and grief.. but it does not equal easy words to heal. Healing comes with time.

As it slips away..

I do know this, though: My Uncle was filled with enough spirit to move a mountain. His mind was a pillar of strength and love. His body was a symbol of health until sickness took that away.. And his core soul was kind and amazing.. The sort of person that fills a room with joy just by a smile, and happiness just with his kind words. There’s no way that a soul like that just vanishes into an abyss of nothing. No way at all.

So may he rest in peace.. He left in peace. He will stay in peace.



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 …
