Sunday Roast: Music Sunday!

Okay, I admit it:  I’ve got no ideas for today’s post, so it’s a Music Sunday.  Yay!

This is our daily open thread — Knock yourselves out.

  1. Good morning campers! I tried to post on yesterday’s thread but got a message that said my comment could not be posted. It wasn’t sent to the spam bin – just disappeared into cyberspace. Any thoughts?

      • Try: clearing your temporary internet files and running an anti-virus scan; or
        depending on what you mean by ‘much longer refreshes’…

  2. Ronald Reagan Gave Iran 1,500 Missiles for Hostages. Obama Trades Five Guys? GOP Heads Explode.

    I don’t want to hear another word about GOP lawmakers chest-thumping and foaming-at-the-mouth about the fact that Obama traded, without the requisite 30-day notice to Congress, five indefinitely detained prisoners for the release of Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl.

    You know why? Because history:

    If we are truly exceptional, isn’t one of ours worth five, any five, of theirs? Obama wants to get rid of them anyway.

    • “At heavens gate”
      made me laugh for a good five minutes.
      another gem: “Last picture of Bob”

    • My neighbor K. was a Florida State Trooper who made sure she was assigned for the Daytona 500.
      She follows Danica almost as closely as you!

      • Good thing I put the cats up early. The cable and internet has been off for three hours and counting. Danica finished 23rd, 4 laps down, at Dover. I had to listen to a scratchy FM station to follow the race.

  3. In Norfolk, evidence of climate change is in the streets at high tide

    At high tide on the small inlet next to Norfolk’s most prestigious art museum, the water lapped at the very top of the concrete sea wall that has held it back for 100 years. It seeped up through storm drains, puddled on the promenade and spread, half a foot deep, across the street, where a sign read, “Road Closed.”

    The sun was shining, but all around the inlet people were bracing for more serious flooding. The Chrysler Museum of Art had just completed a $24 million renovation that emptied the basement, now accessible only by ladder, and lifted the heating and air-conditioning systems to the top floor. A local accounting firm stood behind a homemade barricade of stanchions and detachable flaps rigged to keep the water out. And the congregation of the Unitarian Church of Norfolk was looking to evacuate.

    “We don’t like being the poster child for climate change,” said the Rev. Jennifer Slade, who added that the building, with its carved-wood sanctuary and soaring flood-insurance rates, would soon be on the market for the first time in four decades. “I don’t know many churches that have to put the tide chart on their Web site” so people know whether they can get to church.

    • How long before our homeowners’ insurance adds an exclusion for damage caused by “climate change”?

      • Floods are already excluded. Insurance companies have already discontinued writing policies in high risk areas along the coast where hurricanes are prevalent. I believe some areas here in North Alabama that have had frequent tornadoes already pay higher premiums.

        If a clause were included in a policy that allowed for denial of claims for losses due to climate change, banks would start foreclosing for not adequately holding them harmless against loss.

    • I think it would be the best choice if
      Grumpy Gramps was put out to pasture.

  4. It’s a little bit ironic that today is Alanis Morissette’s 40th birthday.

  5. Its been a dreary, rainy day here. The weather has exacerbated a writer’s block that I hope is short term. Its the kind of night a dragonfly dreams of butterflies. I’ll drift off into sweet slumber envisioning alighting atop a big bubble (from the finest Honeybump soap) drifting steadily westward, up over the mountains, gently wafting its way to the …. to the… zzzzzzzz.

  6. Only took them nine hours to fix whatever was wrong with my cable/internet!
