Lennon Sisters

 

Typhoons, floods, tsunamis, disasters, destruction,

I hate to see them on the tv screen.

And I hate to put images of these on my site.

Perhaps an image to soothe my sight—

And a song to please my ear—

THOR

 

Slightly longer, this video clip. It is best viewed on a large flat-screen monitor, Windows Media Player 11, Windows 7, Aero, 2 Gb. ram, stereo sound (surround sound is scary)

If you do not have these in your pc, what-the-hey, watch the clip, anyway.

Thor.mpg

Thor.wmv

This wmv clip is half as short but is the same clip as the mpg.

movies such as this one will usually come out a bit dark on the background

because the settings are not easy to visualize and fabricate.

The dark  settings are of  the fabled Asgard.

The bright settings are of earth.

These clips are however modified to enhance the brightness.

Get the Blue Ray disc for a more wholesome entertainment!

$114.5 Trillion

 

If $114.5 trillion is stacked using $100 bills, it would look like this.

The smaller stack totals &15 trillion.

The stack which is taller than the tallest buildings is $114.5 trillion,

the national debt!

La Paloma.mp3

A change of musical instruments and the application of a more adaptable tempo

makes the rendition of “La Paloma” unique and tops in my book.

Congress, according to GLEN

The English language has some wonderfully anthropomorphic collective nouns
for the various groups of animals.
We are all familiar with a Herd of cows,
a Flock of chickens,
a School of fish and a Gaggle of geese.
However, less widely known
is a Pride of lions,
a Murder of crows
(as well as their cousins the rooks and ravens),
an Exaltation of doves and,
presumably because they look so wise,
a Parliament of owls.

Now consider a group of Baboons.
They are the loudest, most dangerous,
most obnoxious, most viciously aggressive
and least intelligent of all primates.
And what is the proper collective noun for a group of baboons?
Believe it or not ……. a Congress!
I guess that pretty much explains
the things that come out of
Washington…
Best Regards,
Glen

Libyan laisser faire policy

 

Whatever it means to you, it should imply a let-alone policy.

The Obama administration has imposed this policy towards the conflict in Libya and it is proving to be the correct one.

By not sending troops to fight in Libya, there has been no American life lost in the conflict. Very little amount of aid in money has been dumped to the rebels, and whatever the U.S. have to spend has been in the form of weapons and munitions, or merchandise that the U.S. arsenal can afford to give away. The problem of logistics and support is nil. And the best part of it is that the U.S. do not have to play nursemaid to the people who will succeed Ghadaffi. This nursemaid thing has proven to be more expensive to the Americans in the past than the actual money spent in winning a war.

In the future, this let-alone policy should be considered as an alternative to the posture of being the conscience of the world.

Dr. Jose Rizal

 

Dr. Jose Rizal

Prologue by Cool_ambo

 

 When I last talked to Jose Rizal…….

No that is not true. He lived circa 1890 to I dunno.

But my grandfather did talk to him….or was it my great-grandfather? I don’t know. It’s got to be one of them, I suppose. This is what was told me by the father of my mother…or was it the mother of my father?

 Heck, my grandfather was the official bodyguard of one of the Rayadillo* Generals. Now I am downright sure that he was not, and did not really want to be a bodyguard of a Rayadillo General, nor of anybody for that matter, even though the General was his good friend. I know this for a fact. He is blood of my blood, and my blood tells me not to entertain heroic ideas such as taking a bullet for a Rayadillo general even though he is a good friend. Moreover, my grandfather was scared of guns. In this trait, he is no doubt blood of my blood, and after my own heart.

 At any rate and with not much fuss, he was pronounced official bodyguard by this Rayadillo General, most probably against his natural wishes, and he was pronounced so merely because the General happened to like my grandfather’s horse. You see, my grandfather had to go with the horse at wherever and whenever the General borrows the horse for special occasions. With this arrangement, he might as well be the bodyguard of the general, so there.

 My grandfather, whichever he was, pampered this horse of his, a “kabayong mola”.  She was a mare nicknamed Pira. She was the fastest horse in town and maybe a couple more towns over. I can imagine her being the fastest because most of the horses there were made to pull calesas or caretelas. Pira had to be the fastest horse in town by virtue of being the only horse around that is not made to pull a cart.

 Grandfather brushed her coat with mustard oil to accentuate the sheen after which he tied her tail in a knot before she comes out of the stable. This knot, according to my grandfather, displayed her most seductive anatomical property to the other horses, and as a result made herself strut more seductively. This was wistful thinking on his part but the General just about wished that he could die riding Grandfather’s horse, Pira, after seeing all of her gloss and prance.

 One fateful day, or that day which Pira was supposed to be borrowed by the General, Grandfather failed to find Isko, the Calesa driver, who was supposed to bring the special grass feed for Pira called “sakate”. This grass feed, for some reason, gave her strength in her gallop and stateliness in her strut. So Grandfather led Pira down to the “tumana” to feed on the family turnip patch instead.

 After a while, they went back to find Isko with his calesa but without a horse. The General borrowed the horse of Isko instead and went without a bodyguard. In that instant, Grandfather got on the horse and sped towards the General’s appointed place. He was too late. The General was shot dead in front of the church. My grandfather, whichever of my grandfathers he was, was completely filled with remorse. He blamed himself and Pira for the death of the General. So biting were the pangs of guilt that he changed the name of the horse. She was not to be called Coolaspira no more. Thereafter, she was to be called Coolasisi, a symbol of regret.

next….the General tells a portion of Dr. Jose Rizal’s life, that is, when the general was still alive.

The Xmas Race

 

Every year there is a race going on between radio announcers. This is all about who would be the first one to play a christmas song over the air. The winner usually is the first one that played  xmas music on September.

It is still August, but I guess I will win this race if I play one now, And here they are, choose one to listen to.
