Good morning readers.  Thanks for coming by for a read this morning.  Someone sent me the pic above and I figured I might as well share it with you.  My guess is that it’s some artists depiction of how Paul Simon, Leonard Cohen, Keith and Chuck will look if they don’t OD or die in plane crash before they get old.

Inadvertently found myself on a Yahoo News page when I was trying to check my email this morning.  At a glance it appears different things are happening all over the place. 

  • 17 people died of something or other in China, which was a shocker.
  • Wossname’s wife, or maybe ex-wife, is explaining to Egyptians what they ought to do about something, which they doubtless find fascinating and helpful.  She’s still one hell of an unpleasant looking lady.  Glad I was never married to her.  I’ll add that to my gratitude affirmations today.
  • Various countries are waving guns around at one another out in the South China Sea, which came as a surprise.  Article said they all want the same piece of geography and are working up to shooting at one another about it.
  • Shocked to see some people killed some other people in Mexico, must have been around the time some other people were killing some others in Syria.  Maybe some other places too, but you get the idea.
  • Some guy’s divorcing his wife after five years, which is cause for concern to someone, doubtless.
  • Exciting news in politics:  Various politicos don’t like other politicos and are probably telling the truth about them, while most likely lying about their ownselves.

A nice young man named Tom Timbo
Admired one king for his bimbo,
Next one for his wardom
Next one for boredom
But got all his ideas from Rush Limbo.

On the other hand, the sky was a looker this morning at daybreak.  Jupiter, Venus and the moon put on a nice show.

  2. That sums up the news for today and everyday really. I think I’ll print a copy and pin it next to my desk. I’ll label it today’s news, check it everyday and be just as informed as anybody. Not that I’m concerned with being informed.

  3. OUTSTANDING POST! Loved “Tom Timbo!” Haven’t heard—or thought of—“Bring me Dead Flowers in the Morning” in years!

  4. Never watch TV and radio channels, or read newspapers and mags, but I still get too much of ‘that’. I have an aversion to being served battery acid as a soft drink, especially as no one asked me what I wanted. Liked the old dudes, they were trying to entertain, not revolt a person.

    • Hi Kristin. I also don’t watch TV, listen to radio or read newspapers. But battery acid’s always been a part of our diets.

      The old ones used to be young. Old Jules

  5. The battles continue. Only the names of the players change. We were all once infants and toddlers, and young people filled with dreams.

  6. Think we all should spend more time looking at the sky and less checking out Yahoo News!

  7. Hey Jules, Hank Williams III is performing on the Keith Richards video to right of Willie….He’s Hank’s grandson
