Best wishes for a happy and enjoyable Labor day

Here is wishing everyone a great Labor Day. Hope your day is filled with pleasure and happiness with friends and family. Always important to keep a perspective on our lives and that which does bring us joy. I have been taking a few days off from blogging, resting up for the next push!

I chose the song “Money” by Pink Floyd. It brings to mind the early days of my working career when $5 Bucks an hour sounded pretty good!

Sunday Respite: A Bible and a Bus ticket

This time of year it is not uncommon to see family members and friends set sail for the beginning of the next chapter in their lives. Always a push-pull of emotions. Happy to see them move on with their lives, and sad at losing them. I think this song sums it all up.

Hillary’s IT company: ‘Highly likely’ a full backup of device exists

When ABC starts bearing down on the Hildebeast, one has to know the it is getting warmer for the old gal. Her joke about Snap Chat erasing her comment is even more ludicrous. A joke? We shall see who laughs last. Here we go:

Platte River Networks, the Denver-based cybersecurity firm Hillary Clinton hired in 2013 to maintain her old email server, says it is “highly likely” a full backup of the device was made and that the thousands of emails Clinton deleted may still exist, ABC News is reporting.

Clinton hired Platte River to manage her email set-up after she left the State Department in Feb. 2013. Prior to that, the server resided in the basement of her Chappaqua, N.Y. home. It was managed by an IT worker hired by the State Department from Clinton’s 2008 presidential campaign.

It is still not clear why exactly Clinton hired Platte River. Many have speculated that it was a response to the March 2013 hack of the email account of Sidney Blumenthal, a longtime Clinton friend.

A spokesman for the Defense Security Service, an arm of the Defense Department, told TheDCNF that Platte River “is not cleared” to have access to classified material. Wisconsin U.S. Sen. Ron Johnson, who chairs the Senate Committee on Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs, said that the finding “raises serious questions” about how secure Clinton’s server was.

Sunday Respite – ‘Try to Remember’

It is not quite September, but the evenings are starting to become pleasantly cool here with nature’s evening voices in abundance, a reminder of what is to follow. I recalled this song from decades ago when an innocence of life and love were the order of the day. The Brother’s Four are still able to produce a sound as sweet as when they first sang “Try to Remember.” I hope you enjoy this Sunday Respite.

What if Hillary had stayed home and baked those cookies?

I have been under the weather with a bad cold, so not much energy for a post. I thought I would give you this for a little change of pace. Yes, staying home baking those cookies might have been a better idea Hillary. Here are two very short clips.

You know, it is that vast right wing conspiracy that first went after her husband and now no doubt her and her little server.

Sunday respite: ‘Anything Goes’

This particular piece seems a good choice this week for a Sunday respite. Lyrics included.

Anything Goes” is a song written by Cole Porter for his musical Anything Goes (1934). Many of the lyrics feature humorous (but dated)[1] references to various figures of scandal and gossip in Depression-era high society. For example, one couplet refers to Sam Goldwyn’s notorious box-office failure Nana, which featured a star, Anna Sten, whose English was said to be incomprehensible to all except Goldwyn, who came from the same part of Europe (though, in fact, Goldwyn was from Poland and Sten Ukraine).[2] Other 1930s society references include film producer Max Gordon, socialite Evalyn Walsh McLean and her highly promoted trip to the Russian SFSR, interior design pioneer Lady Mendl‘s scandalous predilection for performing hand stands and cartwheels in public at the age of 70, and the financial woes common to “old money” families during the Depression, such as the Vanderbilts, Rockefellers and Whitneys. Most modern versions omit these lyrics, replacing them instead with generic examples of social upheaval.[3]

Times have changed

And we’ve often rewound the clock
Since the Puritans got a shock
When they landed on Plymouth Rock.
If today
Any shock they should try to stem
‘Stead of landing on Plymouth Rock,
Plymouth Rock would land on them.

In olden days, a glimpse of stocking
Was looked on as something shocking.
But now, God knows,
Anything goes.
Good authors too who once knew better words
Now only use four-letter words
Writing prose.
Anything goes.
If driving fast cars you like,
If low bars you like,
If old hymns you like,
If bare limbs you like,
If Mae West you like,
Or me undressed you like,
Why, nobody will oppose.
When ev”ry night the set that”s smart is in-
Truding at nudist parties in
Studios.
Anything goes.

When Missus Ned McLean (God bless her)
Can get Russian reds to “yes” her,
Then I suppose
Anything goes.
When Rockefeller still can hoard enough money to let Max Gordon
Produce his shows,
Anything goes.
The world has gone mad today
And good’s bad today,
And black’s white today,
And day’s night today,
And that gent today
You gave a cent today
Once had several chateaux.
When folks who still can ride in jitneys
Find out Vanderbilts and Whitneys
Lack baby clothes,
Anything goes.

When Sam Goldwyn can with great conviction
Instruct Anna Sten in diction,
Then Anna shows
Anything goes.
When you hear that Lady Mendl standing up
Now turns a handspring landing up-
On her toes,
Anything goes.
Just think of those shocks you’ve got
And those knocks you’ve got
And those blues you’ve got
From that news you’ve got
And those pains you’ve got
(If any brains you’ve got)
From those little radios.
So Missus R., with all her trimmings,
Can broadcast a bed from Simmons
‘Cause Franklin knows
Anything goes.
