A Minivan Minimansion Tour

ditto..and these photos below, well they were added a few days later when the camera battery worked again
And so I found myself on another one of those tours with a friend on this day in search of that mega mini mansion of a neighborhood with one of those New York New Jersey minivans to get me there as one of those tourists in the state of New Jersey with The Palisades cliffs and that skyline of Manhattan to be found in that State of New York as its backdrop. And this one was one of those planned tours via the internet with enough reason to drag that camera out of the closet again with enough battery to get a whole ten photos out of it before the camera batteries died again. And so those photos that I found myself taking in my blogaholicness find themselves as posted above. Happy holy dayze.

The Headline News Again

Hey again bloggers or whoever could be reading this blog. And on this day finds itself as Occupy Wall Street Day 461.  And Occupy Wall Street and Occupy Together, those global revolution of a movements, are still moving fast. And it also finds itself a day before that Mayan Calendar End Of The World Countdown thing, and a few days after that unfortunate Connecticut School Shooting that has since ignited the issue of gun control and gun violence and has spawned online groups such as Occupy The NRA. And so I find myself attempting to find something to blog about on this day in an attempt to maintain content for this blog and my other blog whenever blaghers block possible and also when that Google page rank update wants to send me in search of a fifth full time job. And so I find myself pulling out this vanilla folder stuffed with torn out newspaper clippings of headlines from months and I think even years ago that I once thought that I would blog about on this blog that never happened. And so I attempt to I guess mini blog those headline news clippings without commentary as if to rewind headline news time with headlines that read something like as follows in an attempt to just put this stack of news clippings away again:

1.  College students targeted in online music piracy crackdown.
2.  Take Out the Plastic and Kill it.
3.  National Guard will help protect PATH. hugh????

11.  Gov urges gun ban for violent mental patients.....How about urging a gun ban for every human being on planet earth.
12.  Bored? Tired of going to the same old places.  Try This! Rent a .22 Caliber Rifle...Safety Lessons Included.

14.  Big Bang re-created.
15.  Post-election Iran divided.
16.  Clinton Hill.  Fight for convent's site.

39.   For what reason does Penn Station and Port Authority Bus Terminal seem like a war zone with polizei in camouflage with dogs and machine guns as if awaiting world war four and one is supposed to pretend that they cannot get killed by some guy standing next to them with a machine gun. Guns are the worst invention ever.  If only guns could be banished from every human being on planet earth.

Wednesday, December 12, 2012


Hey again bloggers or whoever could be reading this blagh. And in case you haven't heard, today on planet earth finds itself of that date December 12th, 2012 or 12.12.12 according to that Gregorian calendar on the wall, the last repetitive date we'll see in our lifetimes, or according to those doomsday sayers, 12/12/12, the last date before the end of the world 12.21.2012 Mayan calendar date, or something like that. And so what else is there that I can say about this date that has not already been said in 12 12 12 time. Well, CNN finds itself posting articles with headlines that read Once-in-a-lifetime 12/12/12 date spawns mass weddings, superstitions and RT finds itself with articles that read something like 12/12/12: Twelve must-know facts about last once-in-a-lifetime date this century with a text that reads something like as follows. Have a great 12.12.2012 day.

12/12/12 –– the day of Harmony ... or Doom?

Twelve facts about the last, once-in-a-lifetime date, this century …

1. Wedding bells will be ringing in Hong Kong and Singapore, where couples are keen to tie the knot on a day which they say symbolizes love. But it’s not just Asia which will see an increase in love birds heading to the altar. A survey conducted by US-based David’s Bridal estimates that around 7,500 brides will be getting hitched in America – a 1,446 per cent increase from the less significant 12/12/11. The surge comes as no surprise, considering the sharp increases in marriages which took place on 11/11/11 and 10/10/10.

2. For some, the day will be anything but joyful. Many doomsdayers believe 12/12/12 will be the end of the world, thanks to an interpretation of the Mayan calendar. But, most of the end-of-the-world believers are convinced that the actual doomsday is on 12/21/12, when the Mayan calendar is set to end.

3. In response to “end of the world” preparations taking place across the globe, the Astronomical Society of the Pacific has declared 12/12/12 “Anti-Doomsday Day,” in celebration of rational thinking and reasoned discourse.

4. Palindrome lovers will rejoice in the fact that at 1:21:02 am, they can celebrate the second which marks a date-time combination which will be read the same both backwards and forwards. 2012-12-12 1:21:02 = 201212-1-212102.

5. Those who wish to take part in yet another time-based phenomenon but find themselves snoring away at 1:21:02 will be given a second chance. At 12:12:12 pm, the number 12 will be given a “sixer” – 12/12/12 12:12:12.

6. Number crunchers have a profound respect for the number 12, mainly because of its divisibility capabilities. After all, it can divided into halves, thirds, fourths, sixths, and twelfths. So it can only be assumed that mathematicians will find 12/12/12 to be three times more exciting than a normal “12” day.

7. According to Chinese numerology, the number one is a yang number which is ruled by the sun and represents independence and individualism. Two is a yin number which is ruled by the moon and represents symmetry and balance. When placed together, the number 12 brings harmony to the yin and yang, balancing the feminine energy of the moon with the masculine energy of the sun. So, what we can gather is that 12/12/12 equals lots of harmony.

8. Three is generally considered a heavenly number and often represents the soul or godhead. Four is the number of earth and mankind – for example, there are four elements (earth, air, fire, and water) and four cardinal directions (north, south, east, and west). Because of this, the product of the two numbers, 12, has been said to encompass both the secular and the sacred. So 12/12/12 should mean that both sides will be represented more than usual.

9. December 12, 2012 is exactly 6 years, 6 months, 6 days from June 6, 2006, or 06/06/06.

10. From culinary cuisine to calendars, 12 has been a significant number since its creation. Just think about it – 12 months in the year, 12 hours of night and day, 12 astrological signs, 12 Olympic gods and goddesses, 12 days of Christmas, and Shakespeare’s Twelfth Night. Oh, and let’s not forget about eggs – which are cheaper by the dozen! With so much significance on its side, 12/12/12 was seemingly destined to be a meaningful day.

11. Kiam Moriya of Birmingham, Alabama will turn 12 at 12:12pm on 12/12/12. Since approximately 267 babies are born every minute, many other people will share the same moment – in their respective timezones, of course!

12. Students at Moscow State University have been given motivation to study after their professor posted a sign on his door stating, “The last chance to retake your History of Foreign Literature exam will be 12/12/12. If you choose not to take it, it will not only be the end of the world…but also the end of you.”

A Mill Creek Marsh Trip

Well that was pretty neat to find myself on one of those unexpected ten minute day trips to Mill Creek Marsh today after running into a friend at the supermarket with one of those cars that she could drive to this infamous dumping ground oasis that finds itself in the middle of Secaucus, New Jersey Meadowlands. And that place was like a trip to the country in the middle of the city with the skyline of Manhattan as its background and the smell of sulphur around it that comes from somewhere. And it was a great excuse to grab that camera out of the closet to get a whole five photos out of it before the camera batteries died to post those photos that find themselves posted above. And seeing those white cedar stumps in the swamp in person that I have read about on the internet, on that one and a half mile Mill Creek Marsh nature trail was nature trail interesting. And where does that sulphur smell that finds itself around this Mill Creek Marsh come from. And this marsh still bears witness to the aftermath of hurricane Sandy with its multitude of trees that have fallen and lay on the ground. Oh, and then there's Hoffa. Where are you.
