Update

Blog Post
Blogging

I bought virtual-mirage.org in anticipation of the conversion of this blog to WordPress. There are some people working on the problem. Not working hard enough by the apparent results so far, but Virtual Mirage is inching its way out from under Google’s boot and the accompanying censorship.
Retirement?
Apparently not.
I was fingerprinted for a job (live scan) today. The scan took and I asked if they weren’t going to photograph me for the ID card. They said that the photo was ‘on file’. Of course it is. But I didn’t know if they’d lost it.
New job notwithstanding, the consulting work continues apace and Virtual Mirage (the blog) will continue with the usual attacks on the foolhardy with an interspersed of personal anecdotes. 
LSP texted me because the blog has been strangely silent. Of course, he’s correct, but so far, Google hasn’t shut down the blog completely. Or, we’ll see when I hit the “publish” button.
The North Korean View
The communist party daily Rodong Sinmun published North Korea’s first mention of the meeting between Chairman Kim and the US President, yesterday.

“The respected and beloved comrade Supreme Leader said that it is because of his splendid close relationship with President Trump that a dramatic meeting like today’s could happen in just one day, and he stated that the splendid relationship between President Trump and himself will continue to create good results that others could not predict and act as a mysterious force that overcomes difficulties and obstacles encountered in the future, also.”

Some American’s Perspectives
The US Military Industrial Complex seems strangely dissatisfied with President Trump. They were so hoping for a war, and the President views it as a last ditch effort rather than a foregone conclusion. Democrats are outraged as well because they want a war, so they can blame President Trump for starting a war.

Frankly, I don’t see the Norks giving up power. Once they do that, their beloved subjects will end up dragging them down roads, chained by the heels, or driving tanks over their beaten bodies. But, hope springs eternal.

  1. have you heard anything about an American sub being sunk by the russians off alaska? i'm getting rumors, and the rooskies are saying a mini sub caught fire and killed 14 crew. they may have their war yet. God i hope not.

  2. It is difficult to retire when you enjoy what you do. Just yesterday did a repo. $500 for two hours work. Great fun!

  3. Not sure what your issues are with getting a WordPress blog.

    My business WordPress blog address costs me $18 annually, no fuss no muss, no sensorship, had it for 10 years or more, no issues. Just sign on, use some of their existing formats, many to choose from. You don't need no stinkin', high falutin' IT guys to do it.

    Yes, maybe transferring the legacy material you have over from Google might not take, but from what I've seen of your posts, just do it; the formats will support your stuff. For $18 bucks, any moron can make it happen, very intuitive. Not that you are a moron, LL, just sayin'…

  4. The more things change, the more they remain the same… Stay safe out there!

  5. I frankly love my job.
    I hope I can do it another 10 yrs.
    Retire at 75.

  6. The news (I know,main stream news) reported it was a Russian sub that sank…

  7. Be safe, LL. God bless.

    And thanks for the NK update. I expect 'Supreme Leader' won't give up power anytime soon.

  8. Study: 4th of July Parade may turn kids into Republicans!

    ps. could you please add CC to your blogroll? Thanks!

  9. Pretty sure the Russian would have to actually leave port, to have any hope of that.

  10. wordpress.com/. My rate has been $18.00 annually since around 2011 or thereabouts for a unique domain name that signs up for a wordpress.com account. Of course, you have to put up with them pasting ads into your content here and there. It's not all that obtrusive. If you want the ads to go away, they charge you more (a value added 'feature').

  11. Since the majority of Nike revenue is generated overseas, and a lot in China, I wouldn't doubt for a minute that they might consider adopting this courageous 'hammer and swoosh' symbol. And to think their CEO Phil Knight and I hail from the same alma mater (U. of Oregon). I wonder if drinks the water there, it's gotta be something in it that damages your brain. I haven't lived there since the early 1990's, so I think my brain has healed.
