Paul Solmon: "Land of the Free, Home of the Poor"

Did you see this on Leher? I saw it last night, and thought the it was right on the point... Solmon's charts drive home the point. Take a look...

Ron Fairly Talks about Old Ballparks

This is from Shannon Drayer's Mariners Blog... I haven't watched the whole thing yet, but it definitely looks like it's something Rik especially would enjoy... (It's pretty long!)

New Geezecast Feed on the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau

I’ve added a new “gadget” to the Geezecast page, on the left side: the RSS feed for the new US gob’mnt “Consumer Financial Protection Bureau”, headed by Elizabeth Warren, one of the few good guys in the world of gob’mnt and punditry. Also, check out this article (“Five Reasons Why Banks Hate Elizabeth Warren”) on the Reuters page by John Wasik, giving some background on Elizabeth Warren. I think it’s worth a look. We’ll see if the a’holes in congress allow the CFPB to see the light of day.

Nancy Wycoff Cools Off - Sunbury, Ohio - July, 2010

This is a 2010 photo of my sister, Nancy Jo Wycoff (born Oct. 19, 1954), at a Sunbury, Ohio swimming party of the Delaware Library Book Club. She probably took a drink or two of the pool water, don't you think? My, how this takes me back to our summer swims at the the Stevens' pool over near Kilbourne, Ohio. The tune is from Kate & Anna McGarrigle's self-titled album of the 1970s, with their version of the Loudon Wainwright's song.

1940 Delaware - Heart of Ohio Baseball League , R. B. Foster, player-manager

Lower left in photo is Bobby Burns "Chesty" Foster, born & died in Delaware, OH (1898-1980). He was owner-proprietor of Foster Paint & Wallpaper in Delaware, was my Mom's dad. Grandpa's 2 baseball gloves wy first mitts- on lucky days I'd get Dad and him to play ball with me until it was too dark, or they were too tired. Fireflies and a hazy farm summer night, a peach-colored sunset are gentle in my mind, as I gaze again at this photo. Note: I also have to wonder why Granpa snipped off the heads of the top row players. Probably to fit in the frame it was in, I suppose. Probably. But maybe he had a chuckle as he was making silent comments on their playing! You have any suggestions? Could be fun to ponder. Maybe that was part of his little joke, too .NOTE: The song, "Friendly Competition" is from John McCutceon's 2010 CD, "Passage."

Karen & Mary (daughter, mother) Dec. 15, 2009

This photo, I took with Karen's Cannon digital camera. I think it's the only one I ever took of the two of them. It captures one of countless evenings in our kitchen, with the old clock marking time. Mary died on March 29, 2011, age 90. She moved out to Montana in October, 1989. Among many stories she shared, one was how She had attended the 1948 World Series in Cleveland. Got all gussied up, and took the bus from Warren with her cousin. She could at one time name many of the players, when we would reminisce on baseball memories. Good times. NOTE: The song is by Dan Reeder. "The Walk to the God House" from his 2010 release, "The New Century."

Hi Guys,
I thought you might be interested in the suggestion below from somebody at my work:
 I'm a news junkie. While I still skim the Washington Post and New York Times online, I look to news aggregators like RealClearWorld for a broader perspective. This site "selects the best international news, opinions and analyses from English-language publications in over 50 countries and all six continents." Current topics include international coverage of the war in Libya, Middle East unrest, and the disasters in Japan. There are three connected sites worth reading too: RealClearPolitics, RealClearMarkets, and RealClearSports.
I will also add the RSS feed to this blog, on the left side...

Excerpt readings from Life & Times of Martin Chuzzlewit (35 minutes)

The reader of my edition of The Life & Times of Martin Chuzzlewit was pretty entertaining at times with his readings. For your ears, I recorded some excerpts. The reader is Patrick Horgan. It is the Oxford Univ Press edition, not sure what year.

The Introduction (Life & Times of Martin Chuzzlewit)

I just finished reading The Life & Times of Martin Chuzzlewit. I re-read the INTRODUCTION of my Oxford University Press edition, written by Jeffrey Russell. In case your edition did not contain that, I post it here. Hope you may enjoy it.

PHILLIP GLASS : Renfeld (from Dracula solo piano)

from the CD, "Orange Mountain Music Sampler" ("Whatever happened to the Transylvania Twist?")

BLAZE FOLEY " If I Could Only Fly"

from the CD "Sittin' By the Road" (2010) demo collection, rec. 1970s.... "Champion of the downtrodden. Friend of the working girl. Truth seeker. Atmospheric disturbance. Tender caring person with a big ol' bag of deep-rooted troubles stuffed down into one of his pockets. Blaze could cut right through the bullshit, or he could be the cause of it. The funniest person I ever met, and also the most tragic." (TX songwriter, producer, and friend, GURF MORLIX)

Krugman: "Eat the Future"

Another right-on article by Mr. Krugman, on the repub's plan to sacrifice the future to allow them to have a nice rosy fake plan in the present.

Scott Burns on "Front Door and Back Door Tax Increases"

This is a new article by Scott Burns, my favorite financial columnist. I think he's right on target, especially his point about the way all the politicians play constant games with semantics. (No Audio on this one; you gotta read it.)

Reading Light Bright

Another technical breakthrough (realized I had phantom power for mics on in two places) fixed that, did midi bass and some double-tracking. With apologies to Jerry Jeff Walker, and the composer (can't remember his name). geezer rob

And now for something really different Geezer Rob does his rendition of that old classic, Robanova. Sit back, relax and plug your ears.  Here it comes, ready or not.
