housekeeping and issues in blogging


1. As expected:

2. The hopelessness of them all:

Brighton’s i360 tower closed again due to fault.

Quite conscious of Ivan in this who is pro-tech and I’m not anti, myself, but these human foibles come into it far more today, to the point you’d not get me up there, not with my opinion of their competence.

3. ‘Dilbert’ has some good things at times:

I have been predicting this story arc for some time now. So far, we’re ahead of schedule.

4. How are your lungs? Seems they’ve been working overtime:

Three hours in the life of …

Tales of 4 a.m. to 7 a.m. Wednesday morning – not an important post. More important for us is 11 a.m.

Anyway, for the hell of it:

There are 24 hours in the day of which at least 14 are taken up with ‘other matters’, plus there is the factor of age and declining ability to process information, something I’ve noticed with my input and subsequent output, with errors creeping in where once there were just the occasional.

This takes me back to my ‘overemployed days’ of two jobs – that was not fun. Bottom line is that there is only so much that one can do, though having increased ‘disposable time’ certainly helps.

Into this come innocent requests and I’d not want them to cease, otherwise I’d stop learning and stop presenting interesting things [to some]. However, one must judge what is time-effective or not.

An example was someone from the other side in the Knox case some years back who sent a list of 100 questions, as if I had time for that.… More here ...

Revamping of series on who rules the world

Distant Relative illustrated [not deliberately] that I had some of the parts out of order and numbered wrongly, there was a bit too much guff [it was posted in 2010] and it needed to bring in the atonalism post [2014], which led to other aspects of aesthetics linked from there.

As this was pretty much what this blog has always banged on about, it was worth editing and fixing the navigation. Here ’tis now:

Part 1: Letter from New Zealand
Part 2: The world is in good hands
Part 3: Sovereignty – who actually owns this nation
Part 4: Wheels within wheels
Part 5: The Venetians and the concept of oligarchy
Part 6: The assault on science and the great climate scam
Part 7: Atonalism and the assault on society
Part 8: Understanding is half the battle
Part 9: The resistance
Part 10: Who rules the world – further readingMore here ...

Saturday already

1. We knew it but nice to see it confirmed:


Members of the Donald Trump transition team, possibly including Trump himself, were under U.S. government surveillance following November’s presidential election, House Intelligence Chairman Devin Nunes (R-Calif.) told reporters Wednesday.

Nunes said the surveillance appeared to be legal but that he was concerned because it was not related to the FBI’s investigation into Russia’s meddling in the election and was widely disseminated across the intelligence community.

1.  Trump must get rid of them:

Mere days before Gen. Michael Flynn was sacked as national security advisor, FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe gathered more than a dozen of his top FBI disciples to plot how to ruin Flynn’s aspiring political career and manufacture evidence to derail President Donald Trump, according to FBI sources.

2.  Jury is out:

Now, the hacking collective “Anonymous,” known for its activism against big corporations, security forces, and governments, has decided it wants to get in on the massive central bank scores and is actively recruiting new hackers that can assist in the effort.

3.  This Handler woman is the one swimming beside a boat with men urinating on her:… More here ...
