Quote of the day

For the Empire, it is, as Elvis sang, “now or never.” Lenin spoke of “useful idiots.” Ours aren’t even useful, but they call the shots.

Quote of the day

“Tragically, our nation has now, for the second time in a few years, seen a president afflicted with Alzheimer’s. Bill Clinton’s fabled memory has broken down. During his August 17, 1998 grand jury testimony, it failed him dozens of times.  It’s a shame, because he really needs his memory now. He’s been the victim of so many lying and designing women: Gennifer Flowers, Paula Jones, Kathleen Willey, Linda Tripp, and Monica Lewinsky. He has disputed their accounts of his behavior with as much vigor as a memory-impaired person can, but it’s tough. On the other hand, one advantage of having Alzheimer’s is that you keep meeting new women.”

The chippy’s great! RIP Victoria Wood

The chippy’s great! And so were you, Victoria Wood (1953 – 2016).

A multi-talented woman: she could sing, dance, play and write music and created some of the funniest comic scenes and characters of British television from the 1980s onwards: the “Dinnerladies”, Margaret of “Pam and Margaret”, Mrs. Overall. She liked to work with a certain set of actors, here are many of them singing and dancing with her as they go to the “chippy”.

All is well

My father passed away recently. I was with him in his last days. I played this song over and over during those days. It gave me strength.

The words, or very similar ones, crop up in most parts of the world. The original may be from the Upanishads, I’m not sure.

If you know someone who might be comforted by this song, please go to www.johnadorney.com for a free download. It is also available on Youtube with subtitles in various languages.
