I went to a jam session today that had a bass player (acoustic/stand up) who toured with Wayne Hancock (old school country dude) and he was really good. Made my day. We did a bunch of Johnny Cash tunes amongst other. I pulled off a couple of leads on slide guitar that I was happy about and got complimented by a few people so I left with my head held high. My retired lfe seems to revolve around cooking, eating, music and of course drinking. :D Things could be worse......

Came upon this Timothy Leary quote today.
“Admit it. You aren’t like them. You’re not even close. You may occasionally dress yourself up as one of them, watch the same mindless television shows as they do, maybe even eat the same fast food sometimes. But it seems that the more you try to fit in, the more you feel like an outsider, watching the ‘normal people’ as they go about their automatic existences. For every time you say club passwords like ‘Have a nice day’ and ‘Weather’s awful today, eh?’, you yearn inside to say forbidden things like ‘Tell me something that makes you cry’ or ‘What do you think deja vu is for?’. Face it, you even want to talk to that girl in the elevator. But what if that girl in the elevator (and the balding man who walks past your cubicle at work) are thinking the same thing? Who knows what you might learn from taking a chance on conversation with a stranger? Everyone carries a piece of the puzzle. Nobody comes into your life by mere coincidence. Trust your instincts. Do the unexpected. Find the others.”

Always gobsmacked by China's progress I read this in the American Conservative site

Last month ... a mammoth Chinese cargo train arrived in Turkey en route to the heart of Europe. It will be remembered as the first freight train to pass from China across central Asia and under the Bosphorus Strait, using the Marmaray tunnel as part of China’s historic Belt and Road Initiative (BRI).

A noise or something woke me at 2 AM and I haven't been able to get back to sleep. :x

We’ve got new neighbours. One of them has the same name as my cat, which probably confused them totally over the weekend as I implored him loudly to come in at 9pm.

Then it follows that ∀ k ∈ K: K ∈ U ⇒ k ∉ D

Look at me coming home at 1 a.m. from a jam session at a friend's house. I can't remember the last time THAT happened. :D

We were at T- Berry’s Xmas party on Saturday. I wish y’all could have seen him dressed as a reindeer.

I check my post office box a few times a week and to do it I have to walk across the capitol grounds and a few blocks down Congress Avenue. You see a fair bit of crazy shit around the Capitol—there are parties thrown by lobbyists under tents and frequent protests/demonstrations/rallies. One dude has taken to wearing this grim reaper kind of cloak and walking around the perimeter of the grounds, blowing a shofar. There was a time or two when all these obese gun nuts were parading around trying to look like badasses with their machine guns.

Today there was what looked to be an impeach trump rally in front of the Capitol Christmas tree where Congress Ave. dead ends into the Capitol grounds. A few dozen people standing around with signs and cars passing by, honking in approval. When I was walking back, I saw what looked to be an armored black Humvee or some sort of tactical vehicle with two American flags on the back and Infowars signs on the doors (and professional looking cameras mounted on top). It was in the parking lot across the way, in front of the Governor’s Mansion. As it began to creep out onto the streets, I heard a very loud “Trump 2020” over and over again. Had there been more than one, it would’ve been really chilling. As it was, it was just a little silly. Yuck.

I'm cooking some blackeyed peas at the moment which will become a bean soup when they are done. With the garlic and onions cooking with the beans the house is smelling wonderful.

I was surprised to find the soup recipe in an Italian soup book (Zuppa!). I'm going to use some jowel bacon in the soup phase and add some Tokyo turnips with the greens at the end to add some more veg to the pot. Carrot and celery didn't seem to be enough.
