How does greed come into play to one of mankind's greatest rule: The Golden Rule - "Do unto others as you would have them done unto you"

This tax on the financial sector has the power to raise hundreds of billions every year globally. It could give a vital boost to the NHS, our schools, and the fight against child poverty in the UK – as well as tackling poverty and climate change around the world.
Not complicated. Just brilliant.

Don't miss the movie "Margin Call" There was a stream of transactions that began with selling homes to unworthy buyers, by brokers...who immediately found the buyer a mortgage with very low interest (+very low beginning payments - to explode later) prior to this explosion - the mortgage was sold by the local banker to a Wall Street Banker... who took thousands of these mortgages and packaged them - showing future cash flow as being "big."
Unfortunately, when the payments by the orig. home buyers - elevated to a "real" payment - there began voluminous defaults - these packages were sold to investors, before the defaults - and the beginning of "The Great Economic Fall" began - watch this movie and see what happened with the "Hot Potato" mortgage packages began their collapse.  

Wall Street is the most responsible for our economic disaster - as their employees got millions in severance packages to cause the distruction of our economy for at least the following 10 years.

I guess, I'll start with this one - it looks like something that works everywhere on your body - and anywhere with some weight in your hand.

 Turkish Getup
Why it works: When people first hear of the "Turkish getup", their typical reaction is to chuckle. Then they try the exercise. No one chuckles after that -- at least not if they do it right. At its core, the Turkish getup is a super-simple movement: You lie on your back, holding a kettlebell or dumbbell above one shoulder. Then you simply stand up, while keeping the weight above you at all times. This not only helps build total-body strength -- including your core -- it’s also a great way to torch calories. But as simple as it sounds, there are plenty hard-to-notice details that can help you get the most out of this move. So watch the video to learn the seven steps of the Turkish getup. A good place to start: Do 3 reps -- or "getups" -- with each arm; rest 60 seconds, and repeat one more time. As fitness expert David Jack says: "Get this exercise right, and it will do amazing things for your body." (On the flip side, there are surprising things that can hurt your body: High Heels Can Make A Woman's Breasts Sag - check out men's health - search.) "I don't know how women can stand up in those 5" high heels - but it appears something else may not stand up for long" I like the concept - an almost "flat" woman with flat shoes.....

Not just for men - this woman does it even better - Good Girl!!!

ps. I started with 10 pound "Dumbbell (2 X 5lb)

3 reps up and down on one side - 1 minute break - 3 reps up and down on the other side... next week 3 on each side - twice....moderately increase weight to suit "That Was Easy"

You mix up your muffins and put the mix in the pan...put the pan in a preheated oven - and just before they are ready - you look in and some are fat and rounded at the top and others - yes, they failed to rise - stayed in the squat and "got cooked in the squat!! Obama....poor little muffin... he was my muffin of choice... now I'm looking at those Fat Rounded Muffins and I want one! I don't want any sour muffins (republicans) they'll make you sick to your stomach - poor little obama muffin...........

Fuckin' badshit muffins - never got the chance to rise.....

Boise This Weekend

Boise State Broncos Logo.svgBoise St.gif
Most Important activity for Boise this weekend - Boise State vs. Colorado State - Football - 4pm, Saturday, in Colorado.

Boise - City Parks Department has begun developing it's largest Park Complex (entrance out my front door On Stewart Avenue) and 5 lane road (one lane being middle - landscaped) From State Street to the I-184 extension...)
The Greenbelt has been closed between the beginning of Quinn's Pond to Veterans Park.  The Boise River will be rerouted through the eastern part of Quinn's pond and back to its main run on the western end of Quinn's Pond. Leaving a dry section to be developed into hydraulics which, when finished, will create a Whitewater Run able to be manipulated from class l thru Class V wave/turbulent system. Idaho River Sports (the store and rental of water sports equipment) will be inside the park with a future Restaurant planned.  There will be sports and recreation fields and a beach built on Quinn's Pond.
Everyone in the neighborhood is very excited - Yesterday was the beginning of lots of Heavy Equipment moving and cleaning up the vacant land awaiting this project.  This will go on for 3 months (phase 1) 6 days a week - 10 hour days.
The entire area south of the North end, East of Veterans Park, west of Ann Morrison Park bordering the Boise River to its south, is yet to be named. The Park will have a shared name - Esther Simplot Park and Ray Neff, M.D. River Recreation Park. Rezoning is being planned for the development of the entire neighborhood - including the 27th Street being down sized from 4 lanes to 2 lanes plus a center lanscape/turn lane.

What else is happening in Boise - Great Weather in the 70's full sunshine and hundreds of events described in two weekly news magazines.

Making Hay while the Sun shines.

Button down the Hatches!
As commodity prices have soared, thefts of said commodities have, too.
Church roofs have gone missing as the price of lead hit all-time highs, used fryer grease has disappeared from behind fast food restaurants and resold for biofuel, and thieves have robbed beauty salons, making off with -- not cash -- but tens, sometimes hundreds, of thousands of dollars worth of hair extensions.

For all the women looking for a "Sugadaddy!"

Rest in Peace - O Great One!

You defied All the great ones - and put them to shame! You contorted the Industry, brought the Recording Mavens to their knees, Redesigned the meaning of Quality.

Take the time to listen to his life's story 15 minutes told by himself - a masterpiece!

An afterthought:

Helvetica - Helvetica is a widely used sans-serif typeface developed in 1957
It was the "Font" , if you will, that was used by Steve Jobs from his start - to the current use
by Apple today.  It is the ultimate typeface - used around the world and has been considered
an "Art Form" - Steve Jobs was the Helvetica of our time!!

This is an example of Helvetica typeface:

Steve Jobs 1955-2011

It was the typeface I chose as the Masthead on my firm stationary, in 1969, til I retired in 1996 (I had first seen it used by "The Whole Earth Catalog" - the bible of our time in the 60's)

Silence is the Greatest Deception of All!

doing business with someone?
in a partnership?
In a Marriage?

Silence is the greatest Deception of All.  Worse than a lie - Disrespect, Dishonest, Deception.

Life would be easier if everyone were "upfront with each other!"

Some folks get off on it - Sociopaths!

Our entire Congress is full of them.  Big Business, Government Contractors - Local governments, neighbors and maybe even some or all of the people living in your home.
