Libya.....the most oil rich nation in Africa....hmmmm.....

The opportunistic, shape-shifting buffoonery of this once-admirable man is shocking, saddening and scary.....just imagine if he and Palin had been in the White House the last few years. John

My Dad Sent Me This Link About Probiotics

Dad knows I've long eaten probiotically, and ever since I turned him onto Lifeway kefir that has put his LONG time GERDS and Acid Reflux into full remission, he is a believer too. He won't even let his dentist or doctor give him antibiotics!    John

This David Lynch 'Twin Peaks' Spoof is Priceless! John

the remarkably enigmatic dream sequence from 'Twin Peaks'

Way back then in Denver (1991?) I had heard about 'Twin Peaks' but had not bothered to watch it. But after this now-famous episode aired, Donna in Gainesville called me to say I HAD  to give "Twin Peaks' a try as she knew how much I love trippy surrealism. I took her advice, caught the rerun and as anyone in my life will testify, I was immediately hooked by, and obsessed with, 'Twin Peaks' for the next few years, mainly the incredibly melodic theme song I still love to this day. While 'Twin Peaks' is way too dark for me now for the last dozen years, I loved seeing this iconic clip tonight and  so am sharing it. Having the actors speak their lines backwards, then playing the sequence backwards for the show, was sheer genius by  David Lynch, right up there with The Beatles in 'Tomorrow Never Knows' and 'I Am The Walrus'. Enjoy, John

John and Yoko on David Frost

I'd forgotten just how edgy and out-there John Lennon could be until I stumbled on this clip. Yoko is virtually silent. What a treasure!  John

I love this brave live performance of my very favorite song. John

Iodine Followup from a Gardening Forum I Belong to.....

"Be cautious with iodine; many people have bad reactions to such a high dose. In order to protect your thyroid from the radioactivity you must completely saturate the thyroid with iodine. I believe the dose would be a whole bottle of high potency pills. The body only normally needs iodine in parts per billion, so please be very cautious!


My intent was to get the word out about an option that protected millions of people in Poland with VERY few negative reactions, so that folks can then look into the matter and decide for themselves. I have researched iodine HEAVILY for a few years now and have seen amazing benefits for pets and people, including full reversal of hypothyroidism, Hashimoto's, diabetes, breast and uterine cysts, heart palpitations and more. Iodine is a CRUCIAL human nutrient...the endocrine system can not function correctly without it. Doctors are very poorly trained in nutrition; for one to tell us we are "allergic" to iodine is equivalent to telling us we are allergic to vitamin C or oxygen. I have friends told this by doctors...... one DEVELOPED hypothyroidism DUE to following the doc's advice to avoid ALL iodine...of course he's made a fortune "treating" her and giving her T3 and T4 tests. Turns out my friends are allergic to SHRIMP, LOBSTER and CRABS due to proteins in them, not the iodine. I've looked into this matter and over and over I see it is compounds associated WITH the iodine that causes the allergy, NOT the iodine itself. Again my hope is that in case a radioactive plume crosses the Pacific, people know how Poland benefited from these tabs that Japan is now giving its people as we sit here in case they choose to protect themselves and their loved ones similarly. John

Oral iodine in case of radioactive plume from Japan

Hey folks,

The horror in Japan just might lead to a wind-driven radioactive plume heading east from at least one nuclear reactor, with the U.S. a likely early landfall, then Europe then the Middle East. So I thought I'd share this data I learned of about three years ago.

Poland gave their citizens tabs of 130 mg. iodine RIGHT after the Chernobyl nuclear reactor meltdown...the Soviet Union did not.....Soviet citizens have since seen HUGE increases in thyroid and other cancers, but not the Polish. I and friends some years back stocked up on Life Extension brand of these 130 mg. iodine tablets in case Bush/Israel attacked Iran....I took my first of 14 daily tabs this morning even though I supplement my diet with iodine due to its many health benefits. My Dad told me he saw on the news yesterday morning that the Japanese gov't has begun distributing iodine to folks within a certain distance of the reactor. Better safe than sorry plus most folks are grossly deficient in iodine anyway. Any excess gets peed out....just pee in your gardens so your crops can absorb it so as to not waste this vital nutrient.

The scale of the devastation in Japan is numbing, and my heart goes out to them. Please pass this iodine data on. John

The Hypocrisy of the U.S. is Breathtaking

NOT A PEEP in our corporate-controlled media about Iraq using deadly force against its own peaceful protestors, and the blood on the Bush regime's hands is a tsunami compared to Qadafi's.  John

Why Budget Cuts for EVERYTHING except Israel?

Very well written!   John

Time to protest like an Egyptian.......

Excellent piece by Michael Moore, who faced death threats during the deeply embarrasing "Freedom Fries" era by being one of THE earliest voices pointing out that the unelected Bush-Cheney regime lied us and the world into war in Iraq.  John

Nissan Ellure sedan

I hope this is a sneak peek at the next Altima....a real stunner!   John

Nissan Esflow concept sports car

I LOVE the front end of this car....looks like a futurized Cord from the 1930s! I hope this is a very accurate glimpse of the next Z car. John

'Beat It!'

This is one of my very favorite Michael Jackson music videos, not so much because of the song itself but due to the exquisitely choreographed sinewy dance moves between both gangs near the end, in particular that cool moonwalk-like reverse sweep they all do together. John

VERY cool concept cars!

Thanks to my long time Denver friend Michael Mowry for sending me this link......I belong to    where much has been posted about this show so I thought I'd seen them all....NOT!  I LOVE the Abarth Scorp-Ion both mechanically and stylistically, and am moved by the cool grace of the Citroen Metropolis. I'd seen quite a few pics of the truly bold Nissan Eslow, and love the front end that strikes me as a heavily futurized Cord for the 21st century....I hope it really IS a sneak peek at the next Z and that for production it is NOT watered down. Enjoy, John
