Welcome 2023!!

Thank goodness the cats are more than happy to clean the house today, because I am TIRED, gang.

Not only have I worked a lot since you last saw me, but it occurred to me, as I was driving home from work last night, that since Thursday, I have driven 225 miles…. and 200 of those miles were simply to drive to work and back. And work and back. And work and back, etc.

Such is life when you live in the middle of nowhere.

Anyway! Even though I’m really tired, I’m also super excited because my dear friend Kara is coming over for lunch today, to celebrate the arrival of 2023. And this means that I get to bring out all my happy holiday porcelain and silver and crystal.

I haven’t had a visitor here at my house for over 3 years. (And I haven’t had a reason to bring out the good dishes in probably closer to 8 or 9 years. So that alone makes me really happy, gang.)

Okay, so. Not much news out there this morning, so this will be brief.

From James Tabor — How Paul, Not Jesus, Created Christian Baptism and the Eucharist (29 mins):

This photo on Instagram made me exceedingly happy this morning:

Jeff Beck, Victoria Clarke (Shane MacGowan’s wife) & Johnny Depp in a tee shirt…


From Derek Johnson:

“When you know the Operation and Blueprint… you can read an article a mile long and pick out the main point.

“Biden”, aka the Continuity of Operations Plan, ain’t doing 💩 for Brazil.

👉🏻45 🇺🇸”


And that’s kind of it, today.

I hope you have a beautiful New Year’s Day, wherever you are in the world. Prayers for a very eventful 2023, beginning with the complete demise of MSM to open the floodgates of actual information. Finally. We shall see!

Meanwhile, thanks for visiting.

I love you guys. See ya!


Tom Petty & the Heartbreakers, again. Fantastic version of “Refugee” live in 1987 –when Tom was still a true Southern rebel, constantly touring and hitting the top of his game. Play it loud!! Enjoy, gang.
