Rule 5: “Can You See The Real Me?”

I had enough credits to graduate high school after the fall semester of my senior year.  I had always taken extra classes every semester.  I had zero intention of graduating early, that would have done nothing for me other than having to get a job !!  I wasn’t lazy, but I knew school was a lot easier than work !

So, for the spring semester I had choir, computer science and a math class.  I think I was done every day about 11:40 am.  One of the things I did to fill the time was to take a computer science class at a local junior college.  1 pm-3:30 pm on Tuesdays and Thursdays.

I would go home and make a quick sandwich for the drive to class and there was an FM radio station that would “track” an album every day at noon.  I would throw in a 90 minute cassette tape to record it and then listen to it when I got home later.  The station was a “classic rock” station and they played a lot of cool music that I would have never otherwise hear. Two albums stuck out.  One was “The Best of Jethro Tull” 1976.  WOW !!! What a great band, what great musicians !!

105

But, the one album that was played was literally an epiphany for me.

1973 “Quadrophenia” by The Who.

WOW ! WOW ! WOW !

Blew me away!!  I think the first song I heard was “The Real Me.”

The drumming, the bass line, the never ending crescendos of guitars and the ripping vocals !

Man I was hooked !!

Up until that time I mostly listened to the “oldies” station on the radio (late 50’s, early 60’s)  and didn’t really follow popular music of the day (1980).  I was also a huge Beatlemaniac.  I had all of their albums and knew every song forward and backwards.

Like I said, this was a musical epiphany for me and I have been a life long Who fan ever since. “Genius” is thrown around way too much in the world, but the Quadrophenia album showed Pete Townshend was a musical genius.

Just How Stupid Are Facebook Users????

Facebook uploaded email contacts of 1.5m users without consent

 

Facebook has admitted to “unintentionally” uploading the address books of 1.5 million users without consent, and says it will delete the collected data and notify those affected

The discovery follows criticism of Facebook by security experts for a feature that asked new users for their email password as part of the sign-up process. As well as exposing users to potential security breaches, those who provided passwords found that, immediately after their email was verified, the site began “importing” contacts without asking for permission.

The issue was first noticed in early April, when the Daily Beast reported on Facebook’s practice of asking for email passwords to verify new users. The feature, which allows Facebook to automatically log in to a webmail account to effectively click the link on an email verification itself, was apparently intended to smooth the workflow for signing up for a new account.

 

OH DEAR GOD !!!!!

How could any person be so stupid to give their email password out???

But the real shame is on FACEBOOK !!

How many people in their organization knew of this, allowed this and accepted this idea???

CAVEAT:

I have a Facebook account only because it is the only way I can keep in contact with a few people.  Otherwise, I would never go near Facebook.

 

Two Men Beat Black Man, MAGA Hat Involved…….

 

The incident happened on April 13 in the area of the 18000 block of Cottage Garden Dr. According to Montgomery County Police, Crawford and Roberson approached the victim, who was wearing a MAGA hat, and asked why he had it on. Before walking away, the victim told the suspects that he was entitled to his own views.

Authorities say the pair then repeatedly struck the victim, demanding that he take off the hat. When the man fell to the ground, Crawford and Roberson stole and destroyed his belongings.

Oops !!! It’s not like you thought it was going to be !!!

 

 

1000 monkeys on 1000 typewriters………

1000 monkeys on 1000 typewriters will eventually write the complete works of Shakespeare.

Actually, that primate would have to just take a crap on the keys and there would be a better plan than the “New Green Deal.”

AOC and her staff are collectively dumber than a bag of bunnies.

Extraordinary claims require extraordinary proof.

It just ain’t there.

I would have to say that a great many on both sides of the “debate” are woefully under informed.  The layman being under informed is not good, but under informed people in positions of power and influence are dangerous.

I am not by any means an expert, but for the past 15 years, every day I have read about “global warming” and there is exactly zero evidence of such.  Global warming only exists in provable false computer models. Seriously, global warming is destroyed by the simple application of “The Scientific Method.”

It’s just that simple.

 

WOOOOOO !!! MARCH MADNESS !!!!

WOOOOOOO !!!!!!

MARCH MADNESS !!!!!!

So I’m at the gym for some treadmill time and I see all of the TVs turned on to MARCH MADNESS, WOOOOOOOOOOOO !!!!

 

Actually, no “WOOOOO!!!!”

March Madness ranks up there with the “Super” Bowl.

Not really interested at all.

Quite frankly, except for fans that have their respective teams in the tournament, I doubt that there would be much other interest at all without the 1.21 gigawatts of dollars being illegally wagered on the tournament.

 

Rule 5 : Maria Conchita Alonso (NSFW)

We dropped cable/dish services back around 2012.

Really don’t miss it much. Signed up for Netflix and it fills the need for watching TV along with checking out DVDs at the local library. Quite frankly, the family should do less “sitting around watching TV activity.”

So, I also just signed up for Hulu to add a little more variety to the programming.

One of the first movies that popped up and that I watched was “The Running Man.”

A decent 80’s schlock movie starring Arnold Schwarzenegger.

But better yet, co-starring Maria Conchita Alonso !!!!

WOOOOOOOOOOOOOO  !!!!

 

Maria_103

Oh what a pretty lady !!

 

 

Maria_106

Reminds me a bit of The Knack’s  “My Sharona”  album cover.

 

 

Maria_105

It would appear that Maria did a shoot for Mexican Playboy and I suspect this was from that.

 

 

Maria_100

Probably from the Mexican Playboy shoot as well.

Really glad she did not have a boob job !!

Literally the only lingerie photo I could find.

There’s a double standard with people accepting aging people, for men it is seen as being “distinguished” and it’s less accepted for aging women.  I personally don’t mind many aging women.  Maria is a couple of years older than I am and I think that she has aged well.  Yes, I know there is some makeup involved but I still think she looks HOT !!

Because I promised something NSFW !

I learned a few things while putting this post together.

  1.     There are a fair number of Maria’s photos on sites devoted to “Feet”.
  2.     Maria does not have a problem going out in public bra-less.
  3.      Despite an very large film bibliography and acting career,  I had a hard time               finding a lot of quality photos.
