Happy St.Patrick’s Day


 

 

Irish Quotes

“Irishness is not primarily a question of birth or blood or language; it is the condition of being involved in the Irish situation, and usually of being mauled by it.”

—Conor Cruise O’Brien

    Rand Paul is a sell-out to the big business/security industry establishment.

    Say NO to a Rubber Stamp for New Trade Deals

    The North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) badly hurt the American middle class, sending untold thousands of our jobs overseas and eroding wages for others — while benefitting huge, multinational corporations.

    Sup everybody?

    So Netanyahu has claimed victory? Aside from the bluster, he had warned that “high Arab turnout” might endanger right-wing rule in Israel. I can’t but help to notice some parallels to our own system here. If Bibi actually wins they may institute some form of “voter ID” to quell dissent, lest democracy take root. We can’t have that now can we.

      IMO Klein is making a somewhat sardonic statement about the complacent state of Democratic party politics and it is obvious that Reason, a libertarian outlet, doesn’t quite get that.

      • MSolomon2 says:

        libertarians, /em spit!

          “But I’m pointing you to his piece anyway, because I thought you might want to see what clickbait looks like in technocratic center-left circles.”

          Hence, Jesse creates yet more click-bait himself.

          • fancykat says:

            I think I got you Darth. Your saying there’s web content generating advertising. I went back and took the bait. One I clicked on took me to Al Gore. In that I clicked on another that took me to gore and climate change. Interesting.

    Tomorrow’s capers are a 45 mile bike ride (five mile ascent on Kings Mountain Road out of Woodsides to meetup with a group for a 7.5 mile hike thru the Purisima Creek Redwoods Open Space Reserve.
    Here is the trailhead off Skyline Drive –

    • Darth says:

      Wait.. what now? you’re going on a 45 mile bike ride?

      • Lizard says:

        Roundtrip from my place is probably 45-50. Curious to track it with the gps tomorrow.

      • thedood says:

        I’ve always said one nice thing about cycling is that when you’re tired and stop pedaling to rest…..you’re still moving forward (usually)!… When you stop running….you’re just standing there! 😉

    • thedood says:

      Hiya Lizard! Wow! That looks sweet!! Enjoy!

      • Lizard says:

        That five mile ascent is a bit of a killer. Haven’t done it in a couple of years.

        • thedood says:

          Ouch! What kind of gearing do you use? Do you have a triple or compact crank? I’ve got the standard 53/39 on my bike and I’m not geared too low in the back….I’d be sufferin’!

          • Lizard says:

            My ride in Cali is a Trek Madone 5.2 carbon frame. Two sprockets up front and 10 in the back for gearing. Have to wear a larger fanny pack with repair kit, lunch and water and snacks for the hike too. Hiking tennis shoes, not carrying an extra pair for the hike. Seemed ok the other day, this setup but did not have that big climb.

            • thedood says:

              I’m guessing a 53/39 then. What about one of those bigger Camelbacks…with the pockets for storing stuff? I have one but it wouldn’t be big enough for shoes, but I could carry extra snacks and stuff in it. I have a saddle bag that has my repair stuff in it.

              • Lizard says:

                Have a camelback on my kayak vest. They are nice. And one for my big backpack. I will just use my standard bike mounted bottle tomorrow I think Refill it and throw it in my fanny pack for the hike.
                53/39 refers to the teeth counts on the sprockets? Never much of a bike gearhead. Its the standard build for that model.

                • thedood says:

                  Yep….53/39 is the standard sprocket count for the front chain rings. Not the best for climbing but it’s all in the legs, right!? 😉
                  Can’t wait to gent out more on the bike!

    Can barely keep my eyes open. Sweet Dreams.

    Happy St. Patricks Day everyone…again! 😀
    I’m having a whiskey because I don’t have any green beer!

  10. Hey !!!!!!

    I’m just editing the St. Patrick’s day parade vide I took—you bet I was there.

  11. I’m trying to stabilize the video a bit, but it will be shaky. So whose having a pint now? I’m trying to draw a shamrock on my Guinness.

  12. I’m Irish, so I’m used to odd stews. I can take it. Just throw a lot of carrots and onions in there and I’ll call it dinner.
    ~Liam Neeson

  13. Finally the video is ready to up load—yah that means 30 minutes to go.

  14. I saw batman today, I trust him more than the cops to keep me safe.
