49 Happy New Years 2016 to the Horde!  The only group that's collectively made me laugh at least once a day since 2007.  I can't...just can't...eat the black eyed peas, but I will be surrounded by them today with lots of family, so my I think my luck will runneth over just by proximity to the bean itself. 

I can't imagine what fate hold for America this year.  I think it's going to be a really bumpy ride.  I'll be optimistic and believe that it will usher in a brand new, patriotic country this fall and that all the grifters in DC will be washed out to sea.

The Obama administration will delay planned sanctions on Irans ballistic missile program, the Wall Street Journal reported late Thursday. Reports had emerged Wednesday that the Treasury Department would levy sanctions in the wake of Irans missile testing in October and November.
 
The administration has faced pressure to sanction Iran for its missile tests, with many arguing that if the country got away with the missile tests, it would embolden leaders to ignore the nuclear deal.

Black eyed peas for luck on New Year's Day?
along with cabbage I guess ... for prosperity?

I like the black eyed pea as in "we Tareyton smokers would rather fight than switch".  That seems to be the choice we have now ... fight for liberty or just switch to PC Commie ... in the long run ... we're all dead.  But we can leave something good behind maybe.

Dubai had fireworks to ring in the new year ... didn't get much coverage so far.  Terror, or just a bunch of drunken Saudis that can't hold their liquor?

Kathy Griffin and Anderson Cooper, two icons of the gay scene, oversaw festivities. They started off with a skit in which the two of them in bed, Griffin unwilling to change out of her comfort clothes.

Griffin then asked Cooper for his relationship hall pass,who he'd be allowed to cheat with. Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau was mentioned, followed by Olympic skier Gus Kenworthy.

That is why I could never write. I have the vocabulary and the ideas but I'm just too lazy.

That's too much like work. Which as I understand it, means I'm not a natural writer cause it's supposed to like force itself out of you; you HAVE to write.

Me, I could take it or leave it so I left it.

I'm here from the Andromeda Galaxy on vacay so don't tell me I have to be "productive" and shit.

141 I, for one, would just prefer to go to bed on NYE, but somehow I married someone who is an absolute junkie for having people over and sitting up all hours.

We had several neighbor families over last night, the adults stayed up playing Cards Against Humanity while the kids climbed the walls.  One 22-month-old went steadily through my house and got into absolutely everything.

The only thing that made it at all tolerable for me was the wife gave me leave to dig out some of my old video game consoles (Atari, NES, SNES) so I finally got to try out some of the cartridges I'd acquired since the last time I got them all out.

143 Someone mentioning salt pork (fatback) upthread has made me nostalgic for Dad's (only?) recipe, pigs in blankets. Now, I know there are lots of interpretations of pig in blankets. There's hot dogs baked in dough, cabbage stuffed with rice and sausage, and some others. This is Dad's, so I will presume it was a New Hampshire thing. You slice the salt pork and rend out all the fat, leaving crisp bits of fried fat. You pour an egg batter into the hot fat and as it's cooking you drop the crisp bits into the batter. Dad always served it with mashed potatoes and carrots. Apparently this tradition was important. We only had it when Mom was out of town for a few days because she claimed to hate the smell of it all so much.

216 Morning, Glories! Milady and I stayed up late, for us old poots. Drank egg nog and watched half of "20,000 Leagues Under the Sea," which I would say I hadn't seen since it was in theaters, re-release in 1963 says iMDB. Milady has never seen it. Would've slept later this morning, but the year was calling me, saying, "get on with it!" Or, maybe it was that darn yeller cat. Haven't had our black-eye peas yet today, but last thing Milady did last night was put 'em on to soak. Good luck for everyone in 2016, and God bless y'all.

249 Skip, our eye doc always recommends warm compresses when anyone gets eye infections. But you shpuld definitely go see an eye doc. A couple weeks ago my kid just started complaining that her eye hurt and felt like there was something in it. After a couple of days of no other symptoms but still feeling it we went and there was a tiny speck of something embedded in her cornea. *shudder* anyway eye doc took ot out with tweezers and gave her eye drops and she was fine in 12 hours. He said it's pretty common.

278 Israeli police have sealed off thoroughfares in central Tel Aviv in what appears to be a door-to-door search for the gunman that killed at least two people and wounded seven others just moments earlier. Authorities have blocked off Ibn Gabirol and Arlozorov Streets to traffic. Residents who live in these areas are escorted to their homes by police. In new closed-circuit footage that has emerged in recent hours, the suspect is seen calmly buying vegetables in a store adjacent to the bar that was the primary recipient of a hail of bullets fired from what appears to be a semiautomatic rifle. The clip shows the suspect, a bespectacled man dressed in black with a backpack who appears no older than 30, purchasing vegetables in a nutritional supplement shop just near a bar. The gunman is seen calmly putting back the vegetables he picked out, opening his backpack, and then producing a semiautomatic rifle. He then begins to fire indiscriminately. The footage seems to complement an earlier clip shot from inside a nearby bar, where patrons are seen hurriedly scrambling while the gunman can be discerned outside while emptying his magazine.

298 A pretty good Lee Marvin movie that I'd never seen before but saw recently is- "The Emperor of the North" also, with Ernest Borgnine - who could really play one mean sonuvabitch. It's set in the Depression with Marvin as a hobo rail-rider and Borgnine as the brutal conductor who just is not having that. Well-made, great acting. Check it out if you have the chance.

300 This will probably get willowed, but here goes: Good riddance 1943, it's finally 1944!! Jan 1, 1944 - The EZ Dog Diaries 1944 blew in with high wind and the first snow of the winter. Cold. Little action. All the Bn Cos came to Brig 1500 for a bit of New Year cheer. I think he means all the battalion commanding officers (C.O.s), but am not sure. I'm also hoping Dad was at brigade HQ rather than in the "brig" for some unnamed New Year's Eve indiscretion. As 1944 opens, the Allies are continuing their slow advance up the Liri Valley and largely stymied all along the Gustav Line. Pressure is mounting for an amphibious landing further up the coast, to put pressure on the German right flank and threaten cutting of supply routes from the north. Winston Churchill is a big advocate of this plan- Operation Shingle.

330 John Lennon was one of the biggest celebrities in the world when he met her. He could have had his pick of women. Think about that. She must have been one hella lay. I dunno. Based on his later "musical" (and photographic) adventures, he probably thought she was charming, witty, and a great singer. My theory is that the John Lennon who was in the Beatles was kidnapped by aliens and replaced with a soulless pod person sometime around 1969. Paul and George knew it wasn't the real John, but they went along to keep the gravy train rolling.

In past years, we've run through Northrend, we've run through Outlands, and this year we're going back to the original runs of the event: Gnomeregan south through Stranglethorn Vale, on a ship over to Ratchet, and north, finally ending up in one of those great big hot tubs in Darnassus in some temple or other! The server we're running on is "Sentinels" and we'll have a guild built and tabards to hand out. Come join the fun!

Barky cracks jokes like this, while the commanders of the actual submarine force have been consistently reporting that the USN does not have enough hulls in service even to cover all of their requested peacetime missions, much less in a shooting war, and the gap in deployable capability widens steadily every year until the end of the 2020 decade.

421 According to "Old Gods Almost Dead," every time the Stones played "Satisfaction" Brian Jones would play "Popeye the Sailor Man."

He just wanted to play old blues songs, and when Jagger and Richards started writing songs he thought they were going commercial and didn't want to do that.

According to the book, Jones and pianist Ian Stewart formed the band.  Their manager made Stewart quit because of his looks, though he stayed with them as a sideman until his death.

456 Yeah, rickl, I have that problem too; last time I was looking for that quote I thought it was Vaclav Havel ..... The Dalrymple quote, in full: "In my study of communist societies, I came to the conclusion that the purpose of communist propaganda was not to persuade or convince, not to inform, but to humiliate; and therefore, the less it corresponded to reality the better. When people are forced to remain silent when they are being told the most obvious lies, or even worse when they are forced to repeat the lies themselves, they lose once and for all their sense of probity. To assent to obvious lies is...in some small way to become evil oneself. One's standing to resist anything is thus eroded, and even destroyed. A society of emasculated liars is easy to control. I think if you examine political correctness, it has the same effect and is intended to."

Its poor folks picking the green leafy stuff off plants such as collards, and boiling them with lard or bacon, onions, etc. But they are really, really good.

464 Cannot listen to modern music for more than 10 to 15 minutes. To my ears it is incredibly abbreviated and with no more than a tiny idea expressed, like a tv jingle. I can only listen to music written between 1800 and 1911. Was there awful music written then? Yes: I don't listen to that either. Am I a music snob? Maybe. My husband says absolutely (and rolls his eyes).

465 405 My music grad daughter (age 26) loves the classic old music from the 60s, particularly the vocal groups. Also Motown. She says today's bands don't sing 4-part harmony like that any more.

470 I'm into geriatric rock myself. Taking the kids 2 c AC/DC on Feb. 20th. All their concerts sell out the day they go on sale. Some lineup changes, though. Malcolm Young is in a nursing home due to senile dementia, & their drummer (Rudd) is serving a one-year sentence of home confinement in New Zealand for solicitation of murder. Lead singer is 68.

471 @441 the whistling piece was "Viennese Maidens."

Public radio stations play the WGBH Boston feed (pre-NPR) of Vienna at 11 AM every New Years Day. I never watched the TV because (1)Cronkite and (2) the many voices of the translations are so effing cool.

And the greeting, at the end, to "All good friends of Austria everywhere." Followed by the Radetsky, what in Yerp is called a cavalry march and the US a circus march, a march written for horses, with the sound of hobnails on cobblestones. A mild and friendly...threat. The Caliph thought he could take Vienna. The Caliph was wrong.

"A sound we all hate to hear, but sooner or later it's bound to happen" (WOPR, do you remember that local reference from NWOH?)

472 How about we work in an updated form of this resolution? Resolved, That these United Colonies are, and of right ought to be, free and independent States, that they are absolved from all allegiance to the British Crown, and that all political connection between them and the State of Great Britain is, and ought to be, totally dissolved.

474 Taking the kids 2 c AC/DC on Feb. 20th. All their concerts sell out the day they go on sale. Saw a really neato t-shirt online the other day: an image of Nikola Tesla next to one of Thomas Edison. Below it said "AC/DC"

477 Pork, kielbasa and sauerkraut tonight for good luck in 2016. Sure to dissipate the bad humors of 2015 into the air. Cleansing in preparation for 2015. (I think I was trying to be polite.)

478 Milady is up! I told her, good, because the black-eye peas she put on to soak last night won't cook themselves. Told her Grampa Jimbo says you only need to soak 'em 4 hours, not overnight. (Adding, yeah, but you gotta wait four hours with that method versus sleeping through it.) Milady replies, well, there's always the quick-soak method: Bring the peas and water to a boil, boil for about two minutes, cover tightly, turn off heat, and let soak for an hour. FYI for those of y'all who forgot to set 'em to soak overnight.
