“Where you used to be, there is a hole in the world, which I find myself constantly
walking around in the daytime, and falling in at night. I miss you like hell.”

Good Article:
Who really saved the White House? - Dave Ross Blog -

Omar J. Gonzalez, the retired Army vet who ran through the unlocked front door of the White House on September 19, obviously should never have gotten anywhere near the building.

But there's a part of the story that's been lost in all the focus on how incompetent the Secret Service was.

This wasn't the first time Gonzalez had shown up on the radar. He had been stopped by the Virginia State Police for reckless driving last July, at which time the cops searched his Ford Bronco and found not only a map with a line pointing to the White House, but 11 firearms.

The secret service was informed, but as Director Julia Pierson told Congress Tuesday, he explained the map was just a sightseeing map.

"And that he had planned to go on camping trips," said Pierson.

He was just a happy camper.

Which meant there was no legal reason to detain him, and so he was released on bond.
But not before the Virginia State Police had confiscated all 11 of his weapons. Which is probably why when Gonzalez sprinted into the White House on the 19th, all he had was a knife.

His 11 guns, including two sniper rifles and a sawed off shotgun - are right now sitting in a state police storage locker.

So Congress can go right ahead and flog Secret Service, as Rep Matt Cartwright did, "This was a stunning, outrageous, disgraceful breach."
... I think we ought to at least take a moment to congratulate the agency that DID do its job: the Virginia State police, who achieved something all too rare these days - they successfully separated a mentally ill person from his arsenal before it was too late.

   YOWZERS-WOWZERS! Thanks so much, Jay Sweetie - and for all your service as well!

From My Friend, Erik, of NC - 10/04/14 - "Your Cell Phone Has a Name!":

  My phone has a name, it's Ryan Nelson. What is your phone's name?

*Note: I tried doing it on the computer and it didn't work. Once I did it with my phone, it worked.

   Thank you, Erik! I was really looking forward to this. My new phone - which makes me nutsy on a regular basis - is still nameless. I have thought of a few names for it, but they weren't very nice...

    Apparently a phone has to be smart enough to have a real name; mine not only has no "enter" button, it has no brackets. But I'm extremely grateful to have it; it texts and calls, and that's what's really necessary.

    I'll keep working on a name - and yes, I'll be nice!

You Forgot All the Words

Words by Bernie Wayne (06 Mar 1919 - 18 Apr 1993)

Music by  E. H. Jay (Eve J. Zeserson)

Recorded by Frank Sinatra (12 Dec 1915 – 14 May 1998), 1956

Love was like a song
A lovely melody
Our hearts would sing along
In perfect harmony
But you forgot all the words
While I still remember the tune

Each time our lips would cling
I heard a serenade
Of love and youth and spring
Forever to be played
But you forgot all the words
While I still remember the tune

We used to dance
Instead of walk
We used to sing
Instead of talk
That used to be
Only the start of the blues for me

But songs are funny things
They never really die
And so my hope still clings
That someday you will try
To just remember the words
For I still remember the tune

When lonely lights are lit
And midnight songs will start
Our song I must admit
Still fills my hopeful heart
So please remember the words
For I still remember the tune
