No Guarantee

None at all.

If I don’t post now, it won’t get done later!

Yesterday, was a rather ignoble start to the World Cup; the first goal of the cup and it was a contra (own-goal) by Marcelo putting the Croats in the lead until Neymar pulled them out of the shit.

Minimal contatc it may have been, butFred was clearly pulled backward preventing a possible goal

Oh, and aren’t the Croats kicking up a din about the penalty.

I saw the game, I saw the penalty, I am a football layman, and even I could see that it was a penalty.

Maybe the Croats should embrace their threat and go home.

However, this is not a football blog.

I was pleased with the result 3-1.

The opening ceremony was rather grand.

The 'live ball' and dancers during the opening ceremony

I loved those trees.

There are three games today. The first just a little more than an hour away. Guess where I’ll ne? (no prizes)

That’s why I must make the most of this hour, dishes, lunch and wrap up here for the day.

Headline news: Harrison Ford breaks his ankle. Everybody needs to know this! Once again, the mainstream media are failing to report real news.

Oh, and Obama is in excellent health; that’s so nice. Nobody reports my annual check in the news, I am stunned.

Jamaica is thinking to relax marijuana laws, another country, Mauritania, was thinking of the same thing last week. These thoughts, along with Uruguay’s example of decriminalisation will not please the USA, except California and Colorado. Just goes to show that the ‘drug war’ is all but lost. Personally, I think it’s great that people are starting to wake up, and I have never used the stuff.

Well, lunch is next on the agenda, looks like the dishes won’t be.

Already had my nap.

Later.

 

 

 

Been a warm sunny day

Coffee-Mug-Quotes-12And, that’s about the news.

Truly, nothing has happened today, it could be that I haven’t been outside the gate to see if anything has happened.

I’ve been as far as the gate. But only to see if the power bill has arrived; it hadn’t.

Today is the 12th, usually the pay-by date is about the 8th, so as sure as hens lay eggs we’re going to get hit with a late payment fee again for the third month in a row. This is how our power companies make a profit. The bastards!

I still have to go and pay the internet provider acct. So you can guarantee that the power bill will come tomorrow, so I have to make the trip again. Honestly, the deck is stacked against us.

I see in the news that new evidence has come to light over the Pan Am flight that was blown up over Lockerbie in Scotland. It appears that Libya and Gaddafi had nothing to do with it. The new evidence points heavily toward Iran arranging Palestinians to do their dirty work in retaliation for the US knocking an Iranian civil airliner out of the sky a few weeks previous. More egg on the face for America.

Colorado is smiling all the way to the bank. The first tax collection since the sale of marijuana was made legal netted $2 million on sales. I wonder now how many states will be rushing to make a profit?

It’s getting-ready-for-work time again. I have to leave early to pay the net bill.

Later.

Friggatriskaidekaphobia

friday13Friday 13th is supposed to be ominous for some reason.

The fear of Friday the 13th has been called friggatriskaidekaphobia (Frigga being the name of the Norse goddess for whom “Friday” is named in English and triskaidekaphobia meaning fear of the number thirteen) – Wikipedia

For me it is just another day. I can’t recall that anything dastardly has ever occurred to me on that day and date. Apart from the fact that my last bottle of fizz ran out this morning, so I am fizzless.

Cool and cloudy today; no rain.

Headlines in the papers this morning, Prince Harry reaches the south pole, who cares.

Much more interesting reading about the swathe of executions this week. The Japanese have been at it, although clandestinely, Bangladesh has had one, and North Korea, Kim Jong-un got rid of an uncle. No doubt other less notable heads rolled as well. We are so civilised.

Interesting reading the United Nations reaction to Uruguay’s legalisation of marijuana, they say it’s illegal. Since when has the UN been able to tell a country that its law is illegal? Obviously the UN is siding with the US on this.

I had half planned to have a nap after this post. My last for the day, but my email box keeps filling up and I feel behooved to reply or visit other blogs. I’m not complaining, I love comments and emails, but why does it all have to happen at once and just when I had planned a nap.

Do you think this has any surreptitious dastardly thing to do with the date?

*Looks over shoulder*

Just a bit of waffle

uruguay-map-2Uruguay said: Let’s legalise cannabis…

The pope said: Don’t legalise cannabis. Because he was told to say that.

The UN has said: It is concerned by the approval by Uruguayan MPs of a bill which would legalise marijuana. Because it would be a dangerous precedent in proving that the USA was wrong… again.

The italics are my views.

“Now we come to an unassuming man, a humble man, one José Mujica, he is the president of Uruguay. José Mujica is the antithesis of nearly every president in the world, he is the president that we all deserve instead of the arrogant power hungry bastards that we are saddled with. Previous post on The World’s Poorest President”The Pot Pot Rots today’s post on Tomus Arcanum

If the bill gets through the Uruguayan Senate, which it stands a good chance of doing, Uruguay will become the first country in the world to fully decriminalise cannabis. This shows the wisdom of the world’s poorest most unpretentious president when compared to the bombastic bastards we have elected in the west.

I know this is not a political blog, but I am overjoyed that Uruguay has shown it is not afraid of the bullies.

Like José Mujica, I have never used the stuff, but also like him, I see the damage that criminalisation has done to our world; more damage than if it was never criminalised.

It’s time for work. Happy reading.

Later.
