Friday [9 to 11]

Afternoon all.

11.  This is an older couple on Gab

… not really the type to be internet rats like your humble blogger, more just another couple who see the wrong and want it righted.

Howver, in this one, they’re repeating something Toodles wrote about the wind changing and the first signs of Fall appearing.  Our temps have dropped over here too, not sure about France.  The south of France just now seems to be like this:

Wonder if our expat boys chase French fillettes through lavender fields?  Hmmmm.  Meanwhile, here’s the US sitrep:

10.  Talking of train wrecks

… there’s an episode of a 70s series I liked when I was young and dunb and it’s playing at Cinema Jimbo at 5 p.m.  McCloud.  No doubt at all they played up the vaguely southern drawl McCloud versus the NYC cop chief, which was not a bad idea but …

Dennis Weaver actually was from Missouri … Denver I think from New Mexico but that’s where the hokey southernness ends.  Read Weaver’s bio, his activism.  Southerner?  He goes on about how anyone could possibly hurt one of these poor li’l moo cows for human greed and cruelty or whatever, then stars in this episode.

It gets worse.  The beef cattle the sophisticated operation rustles are Holsteins.  Yep, look them up too.  And how does the scheme work?  They’re driven into a long loader truck and about four men slaughter all 25 head in the truck zooming along the road, no blood, no guts, just 50 perfectly cut sides of beef at the other end.

Whoever dreamed up and wrote this McCloud series … I’ve not a lot to say to them.

9.  Another train wreck of a movie

Only this time, it gets pulled just before it’released.  By the way, usual profanity warning:


  1. Sunny and rather warm here in western France.

  2. "In order for victims of Jeffrey Epstein to receive compensation from the Epstein Victim's Compensation Program set up by his estate, they have to sign away their right to testify against Ghislaine Maxwell.
    The Epstein Estate has paid out $125 million (so far) to about 150 individuals through this court-approved "voluntary compensation program".
    Meaning for slightly less than a million dollars a piece, they have silenced 150 witnesses that might have otherwise testified against Ghislaine Maxwell, or in one of the other 7 lawsuits still active against Epstein.

    They are buying off victims."

  3. I think Autumn's almost on us - the nights have been cooler and i've been using both quilts! The next sign will be a dew on the grass (this year?) and then camping's over. I hope we stay dry for a while longer as I've still a lot of outside work to do!

    1. A two quilt night … that’s getting coolish.

    2. "No quilts" nights here. That makes the average one. :)

  4. Steve
