Today is the first game of the World Series. I like major league baseball and enjoyed watching the Arizona Diamondbacks with the National League Pennant. Now, we will see how they do against the Texas Rangers. The Philadelphia Phillies and the LA Dodgers, before them, underestimated Arizona.
** BREAKING: Allegedly Mark Meadows worked for the FBI as an informant and wore a wire to record all conversations with President Trump, while he was the Chief of Staff to him. This is not only unconstitutional, but it’s criminal.

“Black Bandit” sounds a little racist to my worke and wounded and reparation oriented cultural bent. It suggests that inner city people are at it again, carjacking, etc. Yet no. Not the case. How can that be?
Which brought this to my mind:
As I was a goin’ over the far famed Kerry mountainsI met with captain Farrell and his money he was counting I first produced me pistol and I then produced me rapier Saying “Stand and deliver” for he were a bold deceiver
I counted out his money and it made a pretty pennyI put it in me pocket and I took it home to Jenny She sighed and she swore that she never would deceive me But the devil take the women for they never can be easy
I went unto my chamber, all for to take a slumberI dreamt of gold and jewels and for sure it was no wonder But Jenny drew me charges and she filled them up with water Then sent for captain Farrell to be ready for the slaughter
‘Twas early in the morning, before I rose to travelUp comes a band of footmen and likewise captain Farrell I first produced me pistol for she’d stolen away my rapier I couldn’t shoot the water, so a prisoner I was taken
If anyone can aid me ’tis my brother in the armyIf I can find his station in Cork or in Killarney And if he’ll go with me, we’ll go roamin’ through Kilkenney And I’m sure he’ll treat me better than my own me sportin’ Jenny
There’s some take delight in the carriages a rollin’And others take delight in the hurly and the bowling But I take delight in the juice of the barley And courting pretty fair maids in the morning bright and early
There’s whiskey in the jar

** Wasn’t there a song about this? Quantum foam, take me home, to the place I belong? Maybe I got it wrong. Don’t think of me as “weird” – but wherever you are there is quantum foam because it’s you – me – and everything else. And that’s weird. God needs clay to work with…I guess.
“Thus, at the tiny quantum level, empty space isn’t empty. It’s actually a vibrant place, with tiny subatomic particles appearing and disappearing in wanton abandon. This appearance and disappearance has some superficial resemblance to the effervescent behavior of the foam on the top of a freshly poured beer, with bubbles appearing and disappearing — hence the term ‘quantum foam.'”
** The US has plenty of mineable lithium (sustainably mineable if you must) It was created by the hotspot that is now active in the Yellowstone National Park area. That hotspot began kicking out calderas (high silica content volcanoes) in the 55 million years-ago range as it marched across Northern California, Nevada, Idaho and now Wyoming as the North American plate moved over it. It’s not a secret in the mining community. McDermitt Caldera, straddling the border of Oregon and Nevada, may hold 20 to 40 million metric tons of extractable lithium, which would make it the largest known lithium deposit in the world. And that’s one of over 50 calderas in the daisy chain. Some are more easily mined at a profit than others.
