"Thirty Days of Night" is a pretty good vampire movie. Josh Hartnett and Melissa George.
abt2: May Day in England had more to do with Socialism (Marxism) as I remember it years ago. Marx is buried in Highgate Cemetery there in London (have you ever been to his grave?) I remember a movie ("Morgan!") that portrayed London as distinctly headed in that direction with their unions. Morris dancing? (Is that with a cat? Over here Morris was a cat who advertised for 9-Lives Cat Food. Haha--I just remembered--my best friend dated Morris the Cat's "secretary.")
abt3: Yes, Ferguson had a small role in Season One of "Red Dwarf." Maybe he and Capaldi are related. Maybe it's time for me to watch "Red Dwarf" all over again. Ferguson was in a situation comedy here with Drew Carey (comedian--flattop haircut and horned-rimmed glasses.) I think he loves it here, although he is leaving his stint as Late Night Talk Show host where he's been for many years. I think he's great in whatever he's done!
abt: Maybe you know it as Labour Day? J/K, no, Labor Day is our May Day, a celebration of the Labor (union) Movement in this country. Canada also celebrates it today but as Labour Day. Capaldi reminds me of Craig Ferguson who has emigrated from Scotland and who does a Late Night Talk Show here in the U.S. He might also make a good doctor.
They're still borrowing $3 million from China to "study" why so many Lesbians are Obese. Obama wants to know.
Federal Government to tell deported aliens they can now come back. It used to be that they were automatically deported if they were convicted of committing crimes. Obama wants them back in time to vote in November. The ACLU (bunch of lefties) sued the Fed Govt on their behalf and the Fed Govt (Obama) bent over and "settled" the suit. While you may think the ends justify the means, just wait till you get on the short stick of the ends. They are mocking the "Rule of Law."
Here's another article on Antarctica ice melting that conveniently neglects to mention there are volcanoes in Antarctica--Mt. Erebus, for instance, that last erupted in 2011. Mt. Erebus also is one of the 4 spots on earth with a permanent molten lava pool. The insinuation being left with the reader is that this is CO2 Global Warming, which it is not. Likewise with Iceland and Greenland and other such glacier spots that sit on top of volcanoes. They keep spreading this propaganda as they're hoping to build of reserve of deluded people who believe in this.
Arctic Ice Myth. Plus, keep in mind there are active volcanoes in the area.
DaddyCatALSO1: Peter Capaldi, who plays the new Doctor Who, played a W.H.O. [W(orld) H(ealth) O(rganization)] Doctor in the Brad Pitt movie "World War Z" (the Z is for Zombie.) Good movie, if you like George-Romero-type Zombie movies like I do.
DaddyCatALSO2: Would it help if I had started asking Question 5 as "The Oriental person from Question Number 4." (who I had established has a multi-syllabic last name.) The point is that if an Oriental person DOES have a mono-syllabic last name, he probably is Chinese; whereas if he has a multi-syllabic last name, he probably is Japanese.
Reading my latest Medicare-Advantage Monthly summary bill, there's a Chiropractor charge on there that's not mine. I used to have all kinds of horrible back problems, years ago, but they all ended when I forced myself to sleep on my side.
Enjoying Season One of "Hannibal" the TV Series, having taken the DVD's out of the Library. Mads Mikkelsen is a great Hannibal Lecter.

How (the magic formula of) Hiring More Minority Police Officers Will (only) Produce More Black Murders. Note: Ann Coulter also explains in this column how the real estate bubble burst in 2008 and what caused it (and, no, it was not George Bush.)
Do you think Lois Lerner (of the IRS scandal involving discrimination of Tea Party Groups--hey, it could just as easily been you) suffered losing her e-mails because her hard drive crashed? Do you believe that Progressive story? It's a lie. Just as we thought those e-mails are archived somewhere, despite the Director of the IRS swearing he looked into the matter and they were destroyed (her Blackberry WAS scrubbed clean however [to delete any evidence] right after the investigation was launched.) Her e-mails, of course, DO exist, and hopefully the lies will stop and we can put this creepy woman in jail.
Yes, Russia DID invade Ukraine territory, in case the Mainstream Media doesn't report this to you and would rather talk about Obama's beige suit.
4W: I think the following is pertinent to your discussion:
David Greenwalt was:
Co-Executive Producer 1997-1998
Executive Producer 1998-1999
Consulting Producer 1999-2002
Executive Producer 1999-2002
Consulting Producer 2002-2004
Joss Whedon was:
Executive Producer 1997-2003
Executive Producer 1999-2004
I think what you are saying is that "Buffy/Angel" was better WITH Greenwalt actively involved. Consulting producer is often an honorary position and not necessarily involved. Greenwalt was off developing other series including "Miracles" and "Moonlight" both excellent, although he did come back to direct an episode of "Angel" in 2004.
KAM: Yes, Yay, you! Well, my construction point was that I hired two contractors to do fairly complicated things and screened them by using Angie's List and was mostly happy with the result. You were bemoaning finding a good contractor. Angie's List includes detailed reviews of the contractor's work provided by Angie's List members who hired them.
Obama says he doesn't have a Strategy to address ISIS. What has he been doing for the last year or so? Besides golfing? You know, when he DOES come up with a Strategy, he will give a speech and announce it so that all his supporters are encouraged. In the meantime he will tell our enemies exactly how to outflank us. You don't reveal your strategy--you force your enemy to prepare for ALL contingencies, rather than to be able to skip certain expenditures.
Surprise: Robert Downey, Jr., says "Guardians of the Galaxy" is the best Marvel movie so far.
KAM: I started getting water in my Family Room which was added onto the house, by the people before me, at a low point at the back. I had a contractor dig what I think is called a French Drain besides the one side of the room, and he put some perforated sock pipe (covered with a fabric that prevents a lot of dirt getting in and clogging it.) It's worked well so far, although I haven't yet had the money to replace the carpet, and subflooring in the family room (but it's stayed dry.) Anyway, I got him AND my roofer (who I have no complaints about) from Angie's List. I forget what I paid for a membership but considered it worthwhile; they do give reviews of a contractor's work and encourage you to also report on their work. I would think this makes contractors think twice about doing shoddy work.
Okay, Obama declared his own version of the Dream Act (people who had been brought illegally to this country as children could stay) and this precipitated the current Border Crisis with all the "children" (actually most are in their teens and probably in gangs.) Now, he's expected to announce some kind of Amnesty Program and, with 1/3rd of the people in Mexico wanting to come to the U.S., they'll all come here for the Welfare Benefits (there's no jobs.) Obama doesn't care if those people degrade this country and cause crime and spread diseases. He just wants more Democratic voters. Methinks the existing Democratic voters should think about this. I know the old saying is that Republicans are for the Rich and Democrats are for the poor, but, think about it, when Business is doing well, there are jobs, whereas the Democrats need to KEEP people poor to keep the votes coming in. All this illegal immigration will just depress wages, they will compete for jobs, and we will run up more National Debt (which must eventually break the dollar) and the people will be on our streets creating crime. Allow Obama to get away with this and he will have all the poor Muslims here (and they will slit your throat.) Obama is recruiting Democratic voters.
KAM: Sleeping problems? I always advise unclenching your fists (flatten your hands) and say (silently) the word "Love" on the exhale. (The point is to stop your internal voice from talking to you.) If this doesn't work, you might have some muscle or nerve irritating pain problems, so take two aspirin. BTW, another cold winter coming up; if I had any money, I would add to my attic insulation.
Deadguy QOD: An OPEN Southern Border would be unexplainable to ANYONE from ANYTIME. It is so stupid; it must be criminal. A recent poll of Mexicans turned up that 1/3rd of all the people in Mexico would like to cross the border (they're probably packing as we speak.) So, what does the President concentrate on: making heroes of teen thugs and spending money on Global Warming (of which there is none.)
When the reporter James Foley was beheaded, our government put out an announcement that, actually, an attempt HAD been mounted to rescue him, but that it went to the wrong place and he was not there. Why would anyone in their right mind reveal this? It would certainly make any future actions that much harder as ISIS would be on alert; they only possible reason Obama would announce this is for domestic consumption, trying to prove to voting Americans that he had done SOMETHING, no matter how foolish. You don't announce your strategy and/or tactics. Like as a person, you never announce that you don't have a gun and don't know judo; you let others believe you do.
