My meanderings about politics, space exploration, cars, cats, tech things and whatever else strikes my fancy. To the current occupant of the White House, we will not be taken into war on anyone's leash.
It’s not like Ted Cruz has been a wallflower. He has made his disdain for the Gay community quite clear. I’m all for apologies, but hosting an event for a Presidential cabinet should come with some homework. I understand that this might be hurting their businesses and why they have put out the apology.

I’m an early adopter, so yes I would love to have a Bomber. Just don’t have the garage space. nor do I have the multi billion dollar budget that one needs or really do need for one, but neither does the United States . So why is your media being bombarded with these ads? Well it all comes to the fact that sees bombers were built to fight wars against the Soviet Union and are little used except in very rare occasions. but the government contract to continue. Hence the ads which supposed to evoke a sense of pride in America. Instead of spending money on stealth bombers , perhaps the government should start spending money on NASA again. China is, Russia, but NASA’s budget is down to its lowest point since NASA’s creation, based on our gross national product. NASA is an innovator, NASA brings much neede pride to our nation and NASA will be the reason that we are not extinct as,hopefully, NASA will be the reason we have a two planet civilization. This is the time to pick up your pen, get on your keyboard, or use the phone and contact our leaders. We’ve had enough with bombers and we want NASA’s budget to be at a reasonable level again. There is no reason white Northrop Grumman could not benefit from this so if they bring up the fact that jobs will be lost, that’s a bogus argument. I know what I’ll be doing tomorrow morning I hope you do the same. AVB
I was on the subway in Los Angeles on Wednesday and standing next to me was a good looking 20 something guy. He was looking down perplexed so I looked down to see what he was looking at and I noticed we are both wearing the same sneakers. He must of thought “Wow I screwed up buying those sneakers”. On the other hand I was please that I was wearing sneakers a good looking 20 something would wear. so the moral of the story I guess is, it’s how you look at the world. although I’ll be 61 next week I still see the world through the eyes of a 25 year old man and I hope that never goes away.

“Tatau” Saturday nights on BBC America after Orphen Black is an interesting tale of the supernatural. The lead, British actor Joe Layton, is very handsome and has a certain charisma. when he got the role his mom asked actually that is not get a tattoo. So the tattoo he sports on the TV show his one apply to stay on the set. In one C he fail to use his underwater equipment correctly and nearly drowned. He was rushed to the emergency room in New Zealand where the show is filmed. If you get a chance to watch it I think you’ll enjoy it.
President Obama was at his comedic best tonight. The jokes for raw but his timing is perfect and even those who were the brunt of the jokes were laughing. He end of the night in a more somber note talking about members of the press corps that I lost their lives and then ended with a first-time toast to the White House Correspondents. AVB
