Trivia Question from Yesterday

There are four Gaelic seasonal festivals - Imbolc, Beltane, Lughnasa (Lughnasadh) and ____?____

       Samhain                                                      Source

Samhain (pronounced SAH-win or SOW-in) is a Gaelic festival marking the end of the harvest season and the beginning of winter or the "darker half" of the year. Traditionally, it is celebrated from 31 October to 1 November, as the Celtic day began and ended at sunset. This is about halfway between the autumn equinox and the winter solstice. It is one of the four Gaelic seasonal festivals, along with Imbolc, Beltane and Lughnasadh. Historically, it was widely observed throughout Ireland, Scotland and the Isle of Man.        Source

  I looked it up. I watch a lot of British TV shows, including Irish and Australian and all those other countries in the British Isles but I really don't know much about the historical culture. I watch them because the cops don't carry guns so they don't solve crimes by shooting the suspects. And the criminals don't have ready access to firearms so they have to come up with creative methods of murder and mayhem. The British and their ilk are a strange bunch, they talk funny for one thing. If I don't have closed captions running I have no idea what they are talking about, and it's even worse for places like Shetland, Wales and Ireland to name a few. The all drive on the wrong side of the road. The men mostly have very large, broad heads and a lot of the women resemble horses. All that said, I really like British TV.
  Oh and one more thing, nothing to do with all that above, I made a grave error tonight. I started watching "Stranger Things" after dark. I'll not do that again.

Michelle's Challenge

Best laid plans...

Michelle said:

In the spirit of Halloween, here's a challenge: Everybody name a movie that best describes "The best-laid plans.."

Bill Paxton and Billy Bob Thornton in "A Simple Plan" (1998)

Daniel in The City suggested:

Harold and Kumar Go to White Castle

BadtotheBoneBob recommended:

Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid

"Kid, the next time I say, "Let's go someplace like Bolivia," let's GO someplace like Bolivia."


DJ Useo added:

My offering to the challenge is the movie "Titanic". A strong parallel I think, with people insisting the boat was "unsinkable".

Maynard's much younger, more handsome brother, Ed, concurred, answering:

Bill Paxton and Billy Bob Thornton in "A Simple Plan" (1998)

Dave in Tucson replied:

In response to Michelle in AZ's challenge I would suggest A Bridge Too Far where everything really did go South.

Billy in Cypress responded:

DELIVERANCE is a good choice, and I would add WALKABOUT.

Thanks, Ed, Dave, Billy & DJ Useo!

Any other "best laid plans..."?

Suspends Production

'House of Cards'

Netflix is indefinitely suspending production on House of Cards, the company announced in a statement on Tuesday. The political drama was in the middle of filming its sixth season, which was revealed to be the last shortly after star Kevin Spacey faced allegations of sexual misconduct.

A joint statement from Netflix and Media Rights Capital read, "MRC and Netflix have decided to suspend production on HOUSE OF CARDS season six, until further notice, to give us time to review the current situation and to address any concerns of our cast and crew."

The companies released an earlier statement on Monday addressing the accusations that Spacey made a sexual advance on 14-year-old Anthony Rapp in 1986. That statement asserted that executives were meeting with the cast and crew in Baltimore to address any safety concerns in light of the allegations, which the companies called "deeply troubling."

Netflix claims the decision to end House of Cards with Season 6 is not related to the allegations. But now, with House of Cards suspended, fans are wondering if Spacey, like several men accused of sexual harassment and assault this month, will be fired from the show. At the end of Season 5, Spacey's Frank Underwood relinquished the presidency to his wife, Claire (Robin Wright). Should Spacey get fired, Wright could potentially lead the show's final season, playing America's first female president.

The season was previously set to debut mid-2018 on Netflix. It is unclear yet if and how this production halt would affect the release.

Fired From Movie

Andy Dick

Andy Dick is the latest Hollywood player facing accusations of being a sexual predator.

The bisexual actor has been fired from an independent film after people on set claimed he sexually harassed them, according to The Hollywood Reporter. Although the entertainment publication does not have statements from the alleged victims, two sources said Dick groped people's genitals and made unwanted advances such as kissing and licking at least four members of the production.

Dick, who has a well-documented history of offending people in and out of court, joked about his reputation, stating, "My middle name is 'misconduct.' They know what they signed up for." He continued, "I don't grope people anymore. I don't expose myself anymore," referencing onstage acts where he has exposed his genitals.

The actor claims that these allegations are a result of his defending disgraced producer Harvey Weinstein on set in Arizona. "They were so incensed by what I was saying. People are so sensitive," he said. The men made two films together.

The harassment claims was not the only problem Andy Dick had on the set of Raising Buchanan - he showed up a day late to the set after missing a flight, had not memorized his lines, and brought a friend who disrupted takes by snoring during shooting. Dick also admitted to asking people to have sex with him on set: "Of course I'm going to proposition people. I'm single, depressed, lonely and trying to get a date. They can just say no, and they probably did and then I was done."?

Secures Generic Drugs

Medecins Sans Frontieres

Medecins Sans Frontieres, the international nonprofit medical charity, said on Tuesday it had struck deals with generic manufacturers to buy hepatitis C drugs for as little as $1.40 a day, a dramatic reduction on original prices.

U.S. drugmaker Gilead Sciences created storm in 2013 when it launched sofosbuvir at $1,000 per pill in the United States, under the brand name Sovaldi. Bristol-Myers Squibb launched daclatasvir at $750 per pill in 2015.

Since then, increased competition has pushed prices lower for the modern medicines, which have cure rates of up to 95 percent for the liver-destroying disease.

The big drugmakers have offered discounts on their products for poor countries but MSF has long complained that the medicines are still too expensive.

MSF said the deals with generic companies meant it was now able to provide a 12-week course of treatment for around $120, against $1,400 to $1,800 available through Gilead and BMS access programs for poorer nations.

Actually Solar Eclipse

'Biblical Miracle'

A major miracle in the Bible was actually just a solar eclipse, according to a new study that also answers an ancient Egyptian mystery at the same time.

Two researchers claim to have decoded a strange reference to the sun and the moon in the Bible. It's not a miracle as suggested, they say, but rather just a spectacular but natural movement of the stars.

And it is actually the first time that such an event, the solar eclipse, was documented.

The mysterious text reads: "Sun, stand still at Gibeon, and Moon, in the Valley of Aijalon. And the Sun stood still, and the Moon stopped, until the nation took vengeance on their enemies."

Explanations vary, including suggestions that the wording depicts a miracle in which the movement of the heavens appears to be slowed. But the phrase actually refers to a solar eclipse, the new paper suggests.

Remarks On Civil War

John Kelly

Adding to the resounding criticism of White House chief of staff John Kelly's comments about the Civil War, the leader of the Congressional Black Caucus on Tuesday said the remarks fit a larger pattern of "repeated attempts to whitewash history" by President-for-now Donald Trump's (R-Execrable) administration.

Rep. Cedric Richmond (D-La.) also took the administration to task for a "continued inability to apologize when it is flat out wrong."

In a Fox News interview that aired Monday night, Kelly said that "a lack of an ability to compromise led to the Civil War." He also defended Confederate leaders and said the war was fought by "men and women of good faith on both sides."

"John Kelly needs a history lesson," Richmond said in a statement. "The Civil War was not a disagreement between 'men and women of good faith on both sides.' It was a struggle for the soul of this country. Thankfully, the right side won the war and slavery is no longer the law of the land."

Numerous historians on Tuesday scorned Kelly's remarks. "This is profound ignorance," said David Blight of Yale University.

Fresh Untruths


Mired by compromised credibility and reeling from newly revealed indictments, President-for-now Donald Trump (R-Crooked) and his White House reverted to form Monday, falsely claiming that the alleged criminal actions were completely unrelated to him.

"Today's announcement has nothing to do with the president, has nothing to do with the president's campaign or campaign activity," White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders said.

Republican media relations professionals were baffled by the approach.

"The White House's strategy is shameless, bald-faced, indefensible lies," said Tim Miller, who ran communications for Jeb Bush's Republican presidential campaign last year. "Lie about everything, admit nothing."

Rick Tyler, who worked for Sen. Ted Cruz of Texas in that GOP primary race, said he suspected Sanders was simply "reciting the answers" as she had been instructed. "It's really amazing the degree to which they think everybody else is an idiot."



There Are 'Nazis' In Congress


Former Republican Leader of the House John Boehner has claimed there are "Nazis" serving in Congress

"We've got some of the smartest people in America who serve in the Congress, and we've got some of the dumbest", Mr Boehner said. "We have some of the nicest people you'd ever want to meet, and some that are Nazis".

After presiding over a caucus fractured by the rise of the Tea Party, which propelled multiple challenges to his leadership, Mr Boehner ultimately stepped down. He has since become a critic of Donald Trump (R-Corrupt), whom he described as a "populist" without "an ideological bone in his body", but he said Mr Trump is not prejudiced.

But by labelling unnamed members of Congress "Nazis", Mr Boehner invoked a spectre that has been haunting American politics this year.

White supremacists, some of them organized under the broad label of the "alt-right", have been increasingly vocal and public in advancing their nationalist vision. Former White House adviser Stephen Bannon, who helped manage Mr Trump's campaign and for months served as a top aide before stepping down, has returned to his role managing Breitbart News, which he once proclaimed a "platform for the alt-right".

Approval Rating Hits New Low


President-for-now Donald Trump's (R-Odious) approval rating has plunged to its lowest level in his young presidency, according to a new Gallup poll.

The survey found that just a third of Americans are happy with their President's performance compared to 63 per cent who are not.

Those numbers have steadily diverged over the last few months, with the gap between a disapproving majority and an approving minority steadily widening as the Trump administration churns through regular controversies without recording a significant legislative accomplishment.

Those results were as of Sunday evening - before it emerged that a special counsel investigating potential links between Trump's campaign and Russian operatives had issued three indictments.

Based on interviews with about 1,500 adults, the Gallup tracking poll has not found a majority of Americans approving of Mr Trump since the earliest days of his presidency, when he briefly enjoyed a one-percent margin. The share of Americans who approve of his performance has not risen above 40 percent since June.

Do you have a great album no one's heard?
How about a favorite TV show, movie, book, play, cartoon, or legal amusement?
A popular artist that just plain pisses you off?
A box set the whole world should own?
Vile, filthy rumors about Republican hypocrites?

Just plain vile, filthy rumors?
