Just Another Saturday in London

Monday, 28 June 2021

On Saturday 26 June 2021 there was a massive protest against government regulatory abuse in the UK.

Some protesters were seen throwing tennis balls at the Houses of Parliament. One protester, who did not wish to be named, said: “They have little messages on them. Most of them are not very nice.” – BBC Report

Image was assembled with screen-capped stills from a helicopter video posted on Twitter.


Update: BBC NEWS estimated the crowd size.

Confess your racism, Susie.

Teach your preschooler that skin color matters. Written by a racist for racists, it’s sold in the children’s section at Target.

I debated with myself on whether or not to post this, but then the voice in my head asked, “What are you afraid of?” The voice made a good point, so there it is.

Saturday Matinee – A NY Mom, The Paladins, The Fabulous Thunderbirds & The Stray Cats

Saturday, 5 June 2021

If you have children or grandchildren in public school, or know someone who does, watch this before YouTube takes it down.


Now for the fun stuff.

The Paladins were/are an underrated but great 3-man flat head six rockabilly band. I saw them decades ago opening for The Fabulous Thunderbirds at the original Golden Bear.

That’s the original T-Bird lineup from 1980
Jimmie Vaughan (guitar)
Kim Wilson (harmonica)
Fran Christina (drums)
Keith Ferguson (bass)
covering Slim Harpo‘s Baby Scratch My Back.

Brian Setzer & The Stray Cats did Eddie Cochran righteously in 1981. (Wanna feel old? Look at Brian Setzer now.)

That’s gonna do it for now. Have a great weekend, see you back here tomorrow and we’ll, um, you know. Do stuff.

Really?

Wednesday, 10 February 2021

I received 10 unordered face masks from the Association of the United States Navy (AUSN) today. They’re promotional, and include a request for donations.

Made in China.

FASHION MASK
Executive Standard FZ/IT 73049-2014
Safety Class B ( it’s can contact with skin directly)
Fashion dust protection, sun protection thermal mask (not medical mask)
Attention This product can be used with multiple times, washable;
No protection against toxic gases
Effect: please use with caution for skin allergy

Typos are as they appear on the package.

Should I burn them?


Update: Here’s the response from AUSN:

Sir,
I apologize for the packaging. In response to our COVID-19 survey which showed that the majority of our members were in need of PPE gear. We had hired a veteran owned company in Illinois to do the production and distribution of the masks. It was not until we received the tracking numbers once they were mailed to our membership that we realized they were not coming from the USA. They do in fact have the ability to insert a N95 filter which would increase the level of protection if desired further protection against the virus.
Thank for your understanding.
