Jerry didn't get to see the eclipse...đŸ˜„

#SolarEclipse You owe it to yourself to experience a total solar eclipse...



Of course, if you are looking at hours of backed up traffic, it might not be so appealing: Colorado/Wyoming, Oregon, South Carolina--and bad traffic could continue on to Wednesday.

#GameOfThrones : Season 8 Script Spoilers or Fan Theories?


We are not even though Season 7 yet, and now Season 8 script leaks are out there? Are they real? They could be real. They could be fake. So if you don't want to read spoilers, don't read these links.

If they are fan theories, they are interesting. It is certainly a plausible way to end the series.  










Rule 5 and FMJRA

Separated at Birth: Arya Stark and...?

Ayra Stark and Steve Bannon: They both have a list...


Proof Positive: Bannon: "Hold my beer..."

Stabbing attack in Turku, Finland


Hot Air: Mass Stabbing Attack in Turku, Finland (possibly more perpetrators)

Initial reports strangely silent on motive (other than mental health)


I am disgusted and concerned. The media (at least in the USA) is sickly obsessive about Trump and Charlottesville, yet this looming threat in Europe and the West continues to march on. Roger Simon is right, the problem is not Nazis. There is a far bigger threat out there.  




Is Steve Bannon finished?


Update:  While not officially confirmed yet, it looks like Bannon is going gone. He may have already resigned and that interview he did was just to sealed the deal. Still, Bannon may be more effective for the Trump agenda outside than in.  

A lot of NeverTrumpers are predicting Bannon goes out for revenge against Trump. They then nuance that by saying he will be attacking Kelly, McMasters, etc. I guess we will see what happens, but I do not get the feeling Bannon wants to destroy Trump. Bannon does unleash, however, on the GOPe.

Rush Limbaugh is stepping up to act as 'chief strategist' to President Trump. Rush recommends that the President focus on the economy. Will Bannon now become a media hero? 







Hot Air: Fantasy/Reality and Mitt/Trump










This works too

Roanoke: The Lost Colony

The ship returned on August 18, 1590, only to find Croatoan carved on a post

The Lost Colony

Okay there are lots of theories what happened: Abducted by aliens?The Lost Colony of Roanoke, and the Mysterious Lost Colony

Wilder theories aside, and given no bodies were found, the most probable is the most likely: They were attacked by a nearby tribe. They had valuable things (like metal) the tribe would want. Tribes often attacked other groups. Either the colonists were all killed, or the natives killed the men and took the women as captives.
