Keep calm and drink cider


Picture is from about a year and a half ago at Borough Market.  Three Americans, two Brits.  We were strangers but bonded around closing time at New Forest Cider, where they ended up letting us buy an extra pint.  And we spent an hour teaching each other British and American slang equivalents.  Most memorably deciding that “wanker” equaled “douchebag.”    I’d go back tomorrow if I could.


If US is “the land of the free & the home of the brave” how come English are so much more defiant & less afraid after terrorist acts?

As Americans send our thoughts and prayers to London…our President’s initial reaction “We need the travel ban.”  Or the whole tweet  – “We need to be smart, vigilant and tough. We need the courts to give us back our rights. We need the Travel Ban as an extra level of safety!”

But apparently “extra level of safety” doesn’t include sensible gun regulations?

Today’s “crooks are stupid” story: In Northern California, two people were arrested for allegedly stealing computer equipment including 18 GPS devices. Guess how police found them.


Pence said today that Trump “is more concerned with Des Moines than Denmark” Uh, Hillary won Des Moines as well as Pittsburgh.



There are clearly more important things in the world, but the #StanleyCup finals aren’t even on network TV in the US? #WTF?

So many punches thrown tonight in Stanley Cup finals game between #Predators and Penguins you’d have thought Hunter  Strickland & Bryce  Harper were involved.


Marlins #EdinsonVolquez threw the first no-hitter of the year today. Amazingly, it wasn’t against the #SFGiants.

Jerry Colangelo: “I think (Lonzo) Ball is a terrific prospect and could have an outstanding NBA future. Think it’s going to be challenging with the people around him…”
“People.” Right.

Thinking free speech means Bill Maher has a right to use the “N” word. It also means we have a right to say it was f*cking stupid.

You cannot make this stuff up: Today’s (small) “Pittsburgh not Paris” rally by Trump supporters in Wash. DC was held in Lafayette Park.


Nikki Haley “President Trump believes the climate is changing and he believes pollutants are part of the equation.”.. But “we’ll do it under our own terms” So pulling out of Paris really just was a middle finger to the rest of the world. #Becausehecan


Trump trying to privatize air traffic control. So if planes don’t move fast enough on the runways, ATC can just start dragging them off?



In Texas, a man who got a “Jesus is my Life” tattoo, and was warned to avoid sun and swimming for 10 days, promptly went swimming in the Gulf of Mexico, got an infection, and died.

Even God is going “Jesus Christ!”

From Marc Ragovin “Some advice for all those going nutso over Trumps decision to pull out of the Paris Accord: sit back, relax, take a deep breath …. oh wait, we can’t do that anymore:”
