We'd all like to vote for the best man, but he's never a candidate.
~ Kin Hubbard ~


Why pay money to have your family tree traced; go into politics & your opponents will do it for you.         ~ Author Unknown ~


Politics is supposed to be the second-oldest profession.  I have come to realize that it bears a very close resemblance to the first.       ~ Ronald Reagan ~


If God wanted us to vote, he would have given us candidates.
~ Jay Leno ~


The problem with political jokes is they get elected.
 ~ Henry Cate, VII ~


We hang the petty thieves & appoint the great ones to public office.            ~ Aesop ~


If we got one-tenth of what was promised to us in these State of the Union speeches, there wouldn't be any inducement to go to heaven.   ~ Will Rogers ~


Politicians are the same all over.  They promise to build a bridge even where there is no river.
   ~ Nikita Krushchev ~


When I was a boy, I was told that anybody could become President.  I'm beginning to believe it.  
                                  ~ Clarence Darrow ~


Politicians are people who, when they see light at the end of the tunnel, go out & buy some more tunnel.    
                                           ~ John Quinton ~


Politics is the gentle art of getting votes from the poor & campaign funds from the rich, by promising to protect each from the other.
~ Oscar Ameringer ~


I offer my opponents a bargain: if they will stop telling lies about us, I will stop telling the truth about them.   ~ Adlai Stevenson ~


I have come to the conclusion that politics is too serious a matter to be left to the politicians.  
                                  ~ Charles de Gaulle ~


Instead of giving a politician the keys to the city, it might be better to change the locks.
 ~ Doug Larson ~


A politician is a fellow who will lay down your life for his country.    ~ Tex Guinan ~

Some Hallowe'en Trivia and Fun Facts 

Because of the unknown, Hallowe'en is one of the most captivating holidays, often celebrated by both adults and children.  The element of surprise makes it fun and unpredictable. 



     Hallowe'en Holiday Trivia

Orange and black are Hallowe'en colors because orange is associated with the fall harvest, and black with darkness and death. 

Jack o' Lanterns originated in Ireland where people placed candies in hollowed-out turnips to keep away spirits and ghosts on the Samhain holiday.

Pumpkins also come in white, blue and green.  Great for unique monster carvings!

Hallowe'en was brought to North America by European immigrants who would celebrate the harvest around a bonfire, share ghosts stories, sing, dance and tell fortunes.

Tootsie Rolls were the first wrapped penny candy in America.

The ancient Celts thought that spirits and ghosts roamed the countryside on Hallowe'en night.  They began wearing masks and costumes to avoid being recognized as human.

Hallowe'en candy sales average about 2 billion dollars annually in the United States.

Chocolate candy bars top the list as the most popular candy for trick-or-treaters, with Snickers #1.

Hallowe'en is the 2nd most commercially successful holiday, with Christmas being the first.

Bobbing for apples is thought to have originated from the Roman harvest festival that honors Pamona, the goddess of fruit trees.

Black cats were once believed to be witches' familiars who protected their powers.


Signs of a werewolf are a unibrow, hairy palms, tattoos, and a long middle finger with claws.

In 1962, the Count Dracula Society was founded.   

To this day, there are vampire clubs and societies with people claiming to be real vampires (give me a break....).

There really are so-called vampire bats, but they are not from Transylvania.  They live in Central and South America and feed on the blood of cattle, horses, and birds, a few drops at a time, often without the animal being aware.

Many people still believe that gargoyles were created by medieval architects and stone carvers to ward off evil spirits.  Gargoyles, architecturally, are actually rainspouts.  If they don't serve as rainspouts, then they're called grotesques.  Some are said to have resembled people the carver didn't like.

Hallowe'en is on October 31st, the last day of the Celtic calendar.  It was originally a pagan holiday honoring the dead.  It was referred to as All Hallows Eve and dates back over 2000 years.

Creepy Snippets 

If you see a spider on Hallowe'en, it is said to be the spirit of a loved one watching over you.

Worldwide, bats are vital natural enemies of night-flying insects.  The common little brown bat of North America has the longest life span for a mammal its size, an average of 32 years.

In about  1 in 4 autopsies, a major disease is discovered that was previously undetected.

Now, who is this handsome dude?  



There's Picasso, there's van Gogh, & da Vinci ~ now there's

Of all the residents of Rio Vista, June is the award-winner!  She entered a coloring contest in town for senior citizens only & used watercolors on a picture of the local police force.  To honor the winner, they showed up in a 1953 Buick police car driven by a 79 year old lady named Dotty, escorted by a current police car, complete with sirens blaring.  Imagine the neighbors & June hasn't lived there a year.

Dotty had to shift gears & even used hand signals (remember those?).  Dave loved it!

Maybe you've seen it, maybe
not, but it's worth watching
again ~ a heart-warming way
to spend the 2020 quarantine.
  Here's a trailer.



Just because you've seen it before doesn't
mean it's not still funny.


Get ready, Baby Boomers.  A new survey will be posted soon, asking for movie recommendations ~ movies that perhaps many have NOT seen, but it's one of your favorites.  Mine, for example, is "Finding Forrester," a surprisingly fine movie with Sean Connery.  Another favorite is "Music & Lyrics," with Hugh Grant & Drew Barrymore.  You be a-thinkin' on it, ok?




Below, the Doo Wop collection.  You were, maybe, 5 or 6.



Thanks a bunch, Barry!



(Thank God there's a name for this disorder!)

Age-Activated Attention Deficit Disorder

This is how it manifests:

I decide to water my garden.
As I turn on the hose in the driveway,

I look over at my car & decide it needs washing.    

As I start toward the garage,
I notice mail on the porch that I
brought up from the mailbox earlier.

I decide to go through the mail before I wash the car.

I lay my car keys on the table,
put the junk mail in the garbage can under the table, 
and notice that the garbage can is full.

So I decide to put the bills back on the
table & take out the garbage first....

But then I think,   
Since I'm going to be near the mailbox
when I take out the garbage anyway,
I may as well pay the bills first.

I take my checkbook off the table
and see that there's only one check left.
My extra checks are in my desk in the study.
So I go inside to my desk where
I find the can of Diet Coke I
'd been drinking.

I'm going to look for my checks,
but first I need to put the Diet Coke aside
so that I don't accidentally knock it over.


The Diet Coke is getting warm, and I
decide to put it in the fridge to keep it cold. 

As I head toward the kitchen with the Diet Coke,
A vase of flowers on the counter
catches my eye--- they need water.


I put the Diet Coke on the counter &
discover my reading glasses that I've
been searching for all morning.
I decide I'd better put them back on my desk,
but first I'm going to water the flowers.

I set the glasses back down on the counter,
Fill a container with water & suddenly spot the tv remote.
Someone left it on the kitchen table.


But I won't remember that it's on the kitchen table.
So I decide to put it back in the den where it belongs,
But first I'll water the flowers.

I pour some water in the vase,
But quite a bit of it spills on the floor.
So I set the remote back on the table,
Get some towels & wipe up the spill.


Then I head down the hall trying to
Remember what I was planning to do.


At the end of the day:
The car isn't washed.
The bills aren't paid.
There is a warm can of Diet Coke 
sitting on the counter.
The flowers don't have enough water.
There is still only one check in my checkbook.
I can't find the remote.
I can't find my glasses,
And I don't remember what I did with
the car keys.

Then when I try to figure out why nothing
got done today,
I'm really baffled because I know I was
busy all day,
And now I'm really tired.


I realize this is a serious problem, and
I'll try to get some help for it;
but first I'll check my email.


Don't laugh ~ If this isn't you yet,
your day is coming!

you're looking for something to drink a cup of coffee by, this

(according to the guy who put it together).  Nice reminiscing.
