All The Best


I want to thank everyone who participated in the Elephant Bar over the past twelve years. We had millions of visitors from all around the World and you were part of it. Over the past dozen years, two or three times a night, I would open my laptop and some of you were always there. I will miss that.

My plans are to continue my work with technology and architecture. You know my interests and thoughts.

At times, things would get a little rough in the EB. To those of you that I may have offended over the years, I apologize. From all of you, I learned and grew.

An elephant never forgets.
Be well.

Pretty Thing Isn’t it?


  1. My Christmas card to one and all, Christian, Jew and my favorite Pagans. All the best! - Deuce

  2. I wuz afraid to click on it. It might be more beauty than my poor heart could bear. :)

    1. Okay, I did. Old Bing had a nice voice, didn't he?

    1. Another pretty thing (in Swedish, this time)


  4. Whoa! If you didn't go all mid-life-crisis a few months ago and take down the entire side bar, this would be my post for the year. My all time favorite

    Peace on earth, can it be...

    One can always hope.

  5. I will address the so called gun show loop hole (doesn't exist) tomorrow when I am not on my confounded iPhone. It is a beautiful night in North Texas. I am sitting next to my fire pit with my bride sipping on a nice chianti. Peace out.

    1. Looking forward to it. Please address the "background check" part of it.

    2. Good God Rufus, you're silly. People buy guns, at least here, out of the newspaper all the time. And there is always an underground market that would spring up if the need arose. You've about as much chance of controlling gun sales as you have of controlling that home brew swill you make and drink illegally. Besides, it is easy to make a gun if you need too. As easy as fermenting barley.

  6. Oh, along with HER shitass 14 year old Jack Russell.

    1. Thank you, Melody. :)

      I didn't have any "brownies, or magic dust," but it went nicely with my Charter and Coke. :)

  8. Ah, Deuce, I think we found a justification for your favorite government program.

    We're Not Dinosauers; We Have a Space Program, and We Have a Vote.

    1. We're fortunate. We are tucked in behind Jupiter and Saturn which over the millions of years have sucked up much of the space junk with their huge gravities. Otherwise, we might not be here.

      Barky will not do anything about this. NASA is now for outreach to barbarians, haven't you heard?

      Like all the other of his programs, utterly idiotic.

      I am working up to giving a medical report on my friend D. The VA has really screwed his pooch. He may well be gone before he even gets any chemo. Or, they may just tell him it's hopeless, the hell with it.

      Total bureaucratic folly and misdiagnosis and malpractice from the git-go, he is going through what everyone will go through with NoCare.

    2. I’ll take a NEOCam any day over a Neocon.

  9. It's getting about the time of year to watch Ernest Saves Christmas again.


    "Don't worry mister, we'll make that plane, I have lived my life in the fast lane"

    1. Christmas without Ernest is unimaginable.

  10. Two competent Doctors took two days to correctly diagnose two problems fiddled over for 6 years by two clowns for her stomach problem, and six months for a misdiagnosed "back problem" which turned out to be a metastisis on her leg.

    ...leading to so many opiates for her leg pain (cancer still produces "break through" pain from time to time that the opiates can't touch)

    The opiates completely stopped her digestive tract, leading to starvation.
    That, plus opiates, plus anesthesia, proved fatal.

    Completely unnecessary:

    The head of radiology said the pain would start to subside after the first or second treatment!

    The first treatment was scheduled for the next day, but never happened as vital systems shut down from the drugs and malnourishment.

    As BHO says, "Sometimes it's better to take a pill."

    Saves money for all those important things he spends it on.
    ...all of which kick back a pretty penny or two to The Won.

    Do You Hear What I Hear?

    Washington Square

    I'm writing a letter to say I still care

    And I wish you would hear it's Christmas

    And it's way past the ???

    I'm saying a prayer I can picture you here last Christmas

    I know you're so far from home

    But you know that you're never alone

    I know you're so far away

    Till you're home safe again I'll just pray

    Oh, it's Christmas again

    But it won't be without you

    Oh, it's Christmas again

    I'm so lonely without you

    I'm turning my collar to the cold and the wind

    Till you're home safe again

    And it's Christmas

    We're saving your present, it's under the tree

    When you're with me, you'll see

    It's Christmas

    I know you're so far away

    But you know that I still feel the same

    I know you're so far from home

    But no matter how far, you're never alone

    Oh, it's Christmas again

    But it won't be without you

    Oh, it's Christmas again

    I'm so lonely without you

    I'm so lonely without you

    I'm so lonely without you

  13. Carolla on Obama's "Fair Share"
    aka: Community Organizer inciting class warfare while POTUS.

  14. MIAMI (CBSMiami) – Jon Hammar, the 27-year-old former Marine from Palmetto Bay, is now back in the United States after spending almost five months imprisoned in Mexico.

    Hammar was released Friday night from the Matamoros jail and driven over the U.S.-Mexico border into Brownsville, Texas.

    The release was met with relief from the Hammar family.

  15. Several conservative House Republican members are contemplating a plan to unseat Speaker John Boehner from his position on January 3, Breitbart News has exclusively learned. Staffers have compiled a detailed action plan that, if executed, could make this a reality.

    The Republicans, both conservatives and more establishment members alike, are emboldened after the failure of Boehner’s fiscal cliff “Plan B” on Thursday evening. Dissatisfaction with Boehner is growing in the House Republican conference, but until now there hasn’t been a clear path forward.

    Those members and staffers requested anonymity from Breitbart News at this time to prevent retaliation from Boehner similar to what happened to those four members who were purged from their powerful committee assignments a few weeks ago. Their expressed concern is that if Boehner knew who they were, his adverse reaction toward them would be much more brutal than losing committee assignments, such as a primary challenge in 2014 by a leadership-sponsored candidate.


  16. Today we should reflect on the warmth of the sun and know how fortunate we are of its return.

    The sun returns! The light returns!
    The earth begins to warm once more!
    The time of darkness has passed,
    and a path of light begins the new day.
    Welcome, welcome, the heat of the sun,
    blessing us all with its rays
