Other than the fact that he was the Governor of Maryland,
I don’t know too much about Martin O’Malley.

So I did a quick Google for his campaign Website.
This is what I was FACED with. Amused me.

For a better view of his bum — and I have never been able to tell whether a MAN’S BUM is cute or otherwise given I am not a bum person in general — click image to access … (come on did you think I would be that puerile?)

Am I SUPPOSED to check out his bum? Honestly? I really am confused. Very strange picture. Yes, yes, I understand (especially since I have covered this ‘so called bus driver’ issue as it relates to priests performing the Catholic Mass), but this is V. strange. What do YOU think?


Bernie Sanders — I Had No Idea That He Was Not A Christian.

I had no idea as to his religion. Just assumed, given that he was from Vermont, that he was Christian.

I LIKE BERNIE. Have done for years. I would like to see him as President. I think he will make a damn good President. Better than Obama. (Did I just say that? Moi, who campaigned so ardently, in 2008 and 2012, for Obama.)

I am shocked that I, an avowed political junkie, did not know this. Was having dinner with a bunch of non-Christians last night, some from Israel, when this came up. I thought they were pulling my leg.

Do YOU think Donald knows this?

I am not sure whether the U.S. will go for a non-Christian in 2016 AFTER their bold experiment with Obama. But, I could be wrong. I hope I am wrong.

It is just that I was taken back.


Polar Grill Fest, January 26, 2013, In Portsmouth, Supposedly To Aid ‘End Childhood Hunger’ (in the U.S.)

Click to access the ‘Polar Grill Fest’ Web site with all the information, plus option to buy tickets … albeit with a 25% FEE.


I happened to pick up a flyer for this on New Year’s Day when we went to the ‘Gas Light Grill‘ in Portsmouth for dinner. Looked interesting though we are not beer drinkers. It is said to be an event to raise funds to end childhood hunger in America. That always gets me interested. That we have childhood hunger in the U.S. just confounds me to distraction. This is supposedly the richest country in the world. Just does not seem right. Not sure what the situation is like today, BUT when I was growing up in Ceylon in the 1950s and 1960s we did NOT have childhood hunger. Everybody, irrespective of wealth, income, age, sex, color, religion, got free rations! Yes, there would be an outcry here that that was socialism. Our politicians, justifiably, were very proud of it. Yes, we had free health care and education too. That is another story.

Not sure whether we will go. It is at the Brewery, but kids are allowed. Beer has no appeal to me. I am a wine drinker. It is kind of sad, but I don’t even know how $5 for a beer compares because I cannot remember the last time I ordered a beer. I know I pay, being cheap, between $6 and $9 for a glass of wine. So, I guess $5 for a beer must be ‘OK’.

Pretty irked at the 25.4% fee for online tickets. That is a rip-off.

I bought tickets for the Loudon, NH Speedway Christmas Lights: ‘Gift Of Lights’ online. No service charge. They actually gave you a $2 discount! Printed the tickets, with bar code, at home. That is THE way to do it. So, I am a but miffed about that.

It is 3 weekends away. The Thursday before I have my dreaded inquisition with my cardiologist (though he is very nice). As ever I will get told off for all that is wrong with me, though much of it is genetic since both sides of my family have it. So, I might not be in the mood to go out to eat. IF I get a reprieve, I might think about it. It could be fun. There is supposed to be two bands, neither of whom I have heard of. I will keep you posted.


The parent ‘Share Our Strength’ Web site. Can’t find this event on it! Seems strange. They are advertising a February 6, 2013 event in Portsmouth instead.

Just for the record I am not a financial donor to the President, the Democratic Party or any candidate, though I have given plenty of time, lots of food, use of our vehicles and Internet bandwidth to the Obama campaign in 2008 and 2012. I think they have my name and address from 2008. Though we did a fair amount of campaigning this year, I don’t think that I ever registered my name or signed in at the office when we did a shift. They just kind of knew me.
