    I just love the Scottish accent. I could listen all day. I brought back a mini book of Rabbie Burns' poetry which still sits on the book shelf.

    We will go back!!!

    I worked with a guy from Scotland...Scott Birse was his name...I always had to ask him what the difference was between the Irish and Scotch/Scottish accent and he would explain it...and then the next day I'd ask him again...He was kind of hard to understand sometime but after awhile one got accustomed to it...He was the boss, interesting guy.

    The Scottish accent is very endearing.

    We are having a Full Moon gathering tonight and I am in charge of the fire.

    Been gathering up some good dry tinder because it might be rainy tonight.

    So as not to collapse the Collapse thread...

    I went to Larry Niven's site to have a gander at his biography. Good God!

    I just heard that George Floyd will be buried today in his hometown. Pearland, TX, that's less than 5 miles from where I live...it has always been a reasonably small community but is as of today considered one of the fastest growing parts of the metro area. It has a reputation as being the home of the upwardly mobile and a good community. A little perspective is all. I guess after they ran off Floyd...

    I'm watching another Texas example of police brutality. It seems a new video has surfaced from an old case. A lot of people are going crazy. I think they are mistaken this time. I think it was a legitimate accident, but it does represent a lack of training on the part of the police force. They failed to recognize the movements of the handcuffed individual were due to cardiac arrest and not resistance despite the protestations of the deceased individual.

    A really interesting new series on the mainstream boob tube: I've watched a couple of episodes on youtube.tv. this is really pretty fascinating, the key here is GEDWatch...One can upload DNA test results and compare against a national database, the caveat is that they have allowed Law Enforcement access:

    I noticed this video mentions Jon Benet Ramsey: When the last suspect was arrested I had a dream the night before that his name was 'something' like John or Mark. I mentioned it to one of my 'brainy' female co-workers, and she said, 'many people are named John or Mark', I said yes but his name was John Mark...I did get a raised eyebrow but that was the only giveaway...

    Here's a good piece showing the hypocrisy of one Mr. Tucker Carlson.

    It's a good chance to learn of his own personal elitism.

    I see Mnuchin, the resident serial killer...

    That Vox guy reminds me of a 'white' co-worker, now I know where he is coming from...for sure...

    Mnuchin was one of the folks involved in the economic collapse at the end of the Bush Administration. The Foreclosure King, he was. Amazing how folks who didn't even have a mortgage could end up losing their house to these sorts of shenanigans.
