The 2nd Amendment, the NRA and Pro-RKBA Black Leaders

Here are both the long and short versions of an excellent video in support of the 2nd Amendment. I recommend watching the long version  (over an hour) but if you only have a few minutes, the short version can convey the message, albeit in brief.

Going To See Willie...

...Nelson on June 7th, the night before my daughter gets hitched. Brendan is coming with me. I picked up two early sale tickets today for the show at NYCB Theater at Westbury. I saw him once back in about 1977 or so, in NM, in a place called the Palomino Club (or something like that) and did not even know who was playing at first. That was great, I was passing through some town in New Mexico, on my way to NY, and stopped in there for a beer. Almost got my butt kicked, by a gorilla in a Hoss Cartwright 10 gallon hat, because of the length of my hair and my beard, but had some cowboy hat wearing bouncers protect my skinny arse and then got to enjoy the show and had quite a few beers while at it.

Then, I saw him in NYC a few years ago, after he had canceled a tour stop somewhere in PA and changed it to New York Shitty. I bought a ticket online, and went to the show straight from my office. That was one of the best musical performances I have ever seen. I am hoping that the upcoming one will be good and that the seats I was able to get are likewise. They are in a section behind the orchestra pit, row E seats - and -. I am guessing they ought to be good seats.

All the best,

The Repaired HP Laptop Arrived Today

I received it, on the street, truck side, from the FedEx delivery man, whom I had just missed at my house. I was driving down the street and saw a FedEx truck turn off of my block onto the road I was on. I went around the corner to see a FedEx delivery attempt notice stuck on my front door. I hung a u-turn and pursued the FedEx truck in the blind as it was nowhere to be seen. Luckily, I made a turn and it wound up being the same way he had turned. I found him a few blocks from my home. I asked if I could get the package from him and immediately showed him my driver's license for identification. No problem, I signed for it, brought it home and am now typing on it.

The best I can make out from the less than very informative paperwork that was enclosed with the computer was that HP changed a hard drive cable, some other unidentified cable and upgraded the BIOS. I guess it was not the hard drive, that was faulty, after all. I ran a systems diagnostic Tune Up test which runs most of the available tests at start-up and all passed, including the previously failed Hard Drive Long DST test. Funny, HP techs stated to run that test yesterday, then cancelled it, so I am wondering how they knew they has solved the problem! They also seemed to have fixed the problem with the graphics controller, maybe that was solved when they changed the hard drive cable or maybe they did something else they did not list on the paperwork. Oh well, seems to be working better but not completely right yet. It may have to go back again if they cannot solve the problems that happen when I attach an use a mouse, any mouse - I have tried 3 or 4 now and they all have problems when attached. I guess another call to HP tech service is in order.

All the best,
