Serve it once and annoying relatives will disappear forever!

That’s the ONLY way we serve turkey in MY house.

The threshold for male passions was much lower 100 years ago.

Thanks to Weird Vintage for this look at pinups of 1910.

Just guessing, but:

Librarian, housewife, spinster aunt, spinster aunt’s best friend, headmistress, nurse, burlesque dancer. And not even the headmistress stirs my pulses.

I want to see Janae Sergio on the cover of Maxim.

From the Military Times:

Janae Sergio spent her high school years on the streets of Los Angeles, in and out of homeless shelters and programs for at-risk youth.

So, when the 36-year-old Navy veteran heard about a competition that donates money toward building homes for wounded warriors, she knew she wanted to take part.

From troubled youth to financial manager for the US Navy. Quite a career arc!

Janae is in the running to be a cover girl in 2019 for Maxim. And she has the backing of the Pin Up Princess herself – Gina Elise.

You can vote for Janae here. Take a moment to read her story. Oh, and there are pictures, too.

But the antidote will cost me $100, right?

Looking through my emails I find

Halloween treat for you! Free Sample Bag with your next order – Only while stocks last.

It’s from an online pharmacy…

A date whose historic associations go beyond trick or treat.

Another fine piece of military art by Ian Coate.

From the Australian War Memorial, first hand accounts of the charge.

We got mounted, cantered about a quarter of a mile up a bit of a rise lined up along the brow of a hill paused a moment, and then went at ’em, the ground was none too smooth, which caused our line to get twisted a bit . . . Captain Davies let out a yell at the top of his voice . . . that started them all we spurred our horses . . . the bullets got thicker…three or four horses came down, others with no riders on kept going, the saddles splashed with blood, here and there a man running toward a dead horse for cover, the Turk’s trenches were about fifty yards on my right, I could see the Turk’s heads over the edge of the trenches squinting along their rifles, a lot of the fellows dismounted at that point thinking we were to take the trenches, but most of us kept straight on, where I was there was a clear track with trenches on the right and a redoubt on the left, some of the chaps jumped clear over the trenches in places, some fell into them, although about 150 men got through and raced for the town, they went up the street yelling like madmen – Trooper Edward Dengate.

We were all at the gallop yelling like mad some had bayonets in their hand others their rifle then it was a full stretch gallop at the trenches . . . the last 200 yards or so was good going and those horses put on pace and next were jumping the trenches with the Turks underneath . . . when over the trenches we went straight for the town – Private Keddie.

Incredibly, despite riding head on into gunfire, the 4th Light Horse lost only 35 men. Another 39 were wounded, against far more severe losses for the Turks. The low number of casualties echoes another battle: Long Tan, fifty years later, where the Diggers taught the Viet Cong not to take them lightly.

Mister President, your Christmas present has arrived early.

She’s back!

“I’d like to be president,” stated Clinton. “I think, hopefully, when we have a Democrat in the oval office in January 2021, there’s gonna be so much work to be done.”

Mrs I Don’t Think My Husband Should Be America’s Only President Clinton has a score to settle with the man who won the votes she disdained as deplorable.

God help the Democrat candidate who takes the nomination away from her in 2020.

“Hillary Clinton is the kiss of death and she represents the part of the Democratic Party that led to historic losses and that elected Donald Trump president,” said a leading Democratic strategist who requested anonymity due to fear of political retribution, per the Washington Examiner.

Hillary – the gift that you almost wish would STOP giving.
But not just yet.

A great air show in south central New South Wales, hosted by the Temora Aviation Museum! Their fantastic collection of World War Two and Cold War era aircraft is the basis for the show and as the name predicts there were plenty of warbirds on display, accompanied by modern day RAAF aircraft including fast jets bringing that glorious noise!

Perth, and the architecture of decay.

Dirty demolitions have been a regular feature in my part of the city.  There was the old backpacker premises at the top of William Street in Northbridge. That was left unoccupied and rotting for at least a decade.

Residentially speaking the record belongs to Demo By Neglect, an old house which finally came down last summer. DBN was allowed to deteriorate for fifteen years or therabouts.

This building doesn’t appear to be another dirty demo. But it had a close encounter with a moving vehicle in August of 2017 and repairs have yet to begin. So far there’s nothing more than the tin sheeting nailed up to close up the rear.

Possibly, that’s as far as it will go. The building is in an old industrial area that’s only a few miles from Perth’s CBD and it’s slowly shutting down. In another ten years the car repair shops will be replaced by high or low rise dwellings.

At which time pedestrians like myself will say ‘Damn, these buildings are ugly. That old place looked so much better!’

But hell. If people want to make up outrageous rape stories about Brett Kavanaugh…
It’s their game. I’m just playing along.
