Here we go!!!
This will be the most interesting week in a long, long time.
Good theme song for this week:
For Those Who Protect Us
Almighty God, I commend to your gracious care and keeping all the men and women who put themselves in danger for our protection. Defend them day by day with your heavenly grace; strengthen them in their trials and temptations; give them courage to face the perils which beset them; and grant them a sense of your abiding presence wherever they may be; through Jesus Christ our Lord.
If you are so inclined, might be a good time to pray for a peaceful and safe convention.
Trump/Pence is the “A” Train.
Duke Ellington’s version of “Take the A Train”:
Melania speaks tonight—she has been practicing!
Speaking of which, anyone see Unruh?
nikos, yer gonna have a busy day/night ;-)
What time does the convention itself start, and the speeches?
Love Train - O’Jays
[ anyone see Unruh? ]
Yes I unfortunately have. And she’s horse-ass ugly!
Will be checking in from the office. Here’s hoping for a great day!
How to upgrade an Egg McMuffin!
A big thunderstorm rolled through Cleveland about 6 AM this morning. Lots of lightning too. Wonder how the “campers” down in tents by the lake liked that!
Let’s go for 10,000 posts total (between the four daily threads this week).
Been waiting for this week all year. Next week, I go off the grid for a while as I cannot stomach the Democrat convention.
Where 1269 is the designation for US drilled, fracked, pumped and transported US CRUDE OIL.
And when the Green River Formation comes on line....another 1 Trillion Barrels of crude available in the US.
