“When free men have been milling about….

Disclaimer:: Usually at the beginning of the websites I have had a disclaimer that says for example is a journalists’ resource where a journalist informs us by electronic broadcaster of something they think other journalists might want to know or they wish someone to point them to info about some occurrence – that is they need background on something.

Obstinate Bowery boy:

How many ways
Can you say
‘Start walking around
But don’t look around
Until you’re seven leagues down.’?

The Truth can match wits with anyone!

I’m starting to have flashbacks. I just saw my website name on a search engine ( August 2, 2022

My Cinnamon Blue (Megan Marie) and my Cinnamon Red (Michelle) have placed my poem “Beauty” on their website for awhile.




So here I am listening to this in really high fidelity on my headphones and what happens? A war happens!!!

Some ladies from the women’s group “femme” in Ukraine by what I call a ‘New York Times broadcaster’ told me in 2010 that the Klitschko brothers – the champion boxers – were the most popular Ukrainian politicians but I note I still cannot hear them after all this time. I notice however that they are the mayor of Kiev.

On April 25 there is the important rumor in the Euro presse that Interpol has intercepted neutron weapons being smuggled into Ukraine. Russia told the U.S. before the fighting began that if they were bombed with nuclear weapons from anywhere they were going to shoot the U.S. with nuclear weapons.  The Euro Union is asking their members to not let their territory be used for transport of lethal weapons to Ukraine.

Another rumor I have heard is that the Russians discovered a warehouse in Poland with about 10,000 high powered computer workstations.  They are said to have turned the electricity off in the city and then absconded with about 9,000 of the workstations.  So what would a government do with all those workstations.  If the government relied solely on mainframes it would only take two or three attacks to put the government off line.  But if one had a couple of workstations in an Internet network in several thousand homes as long as the Internet was working the computer services of the government would be available even if a few hundred homes were damaged and the government could have considerable time to replace the missing workstations in the network.

On May 25 I note there is a report in the Washington Post that was formerly restricted by the military. They [the military] estimate that the Russians have been maintaining a blockade of food and other commodities in an out of Ukraine.  This morning I have heard that Russian radio is reporting Kiev has fallen because they [the Russians] are maintaining a food embargo into Kiev.  Then the host stated that Russia feels they can do the same to Warsaw and Helsinki when they wish. A lot of us feel that NATO played improperly and led Ukraine into a more recognizable untenable position with a cost of lives and property as a result.

“I dunno Michelle. I’m worried. Black Oak Clinton sold Ukraine an invisible curtain to replace the iron curtain.”

So now NATO moves to try to control Chinese expansion into open countries. The media in South Korea and Philippines tell the story that the U.S. put nuclear weapons in their countries at U.S. military stations located there about nine years ago but have only admitted doing so since the Russians have begun trying to annex Ukraine.

As an attempt to hurt the Chinese economy they have aimed coming restrictions at the Chinese computer and Internet industry.  The U.S. wishes that no one sell gold which is used in abundance in modern electrical equipment to China.  Will that work? Platinum works even better than gold and modern computer and Internet equipment using platinum that is compatible with world specifications is now on the assembly line for equipment destined for the Chinese government and I suppose in a few years for their public. So – how much platinum does China have? Reportedly more platinum than the U.S. has gold with which the U.S. tries to manipulate standards to U.S. desires.

July 16 –

The Russians are reporting in Europe that the purported union organizers with the Ukrainians are actually U.S. navy commandos. They claim that they have 40,000 prisoners of war and that the Ukrainians might have 3,000 prisoners of war.

The report is a big scandal with the everyday Europeans wanting to know how long their governments have had reports like that.

Sunday, July 31

I don’t doubt Jong il in North Korea if he says North Korea has an H-bomb but people listening in my apartment this morning are assuring me that the picture above is from Russia.

Three times in the past two months some camels have awakened me by yelling that a nuclear war had started in Ukraine as though I was kidding when I expressed caution  on both sides about making it alright to use little neutron bombs so that they would not need to suffer a lot military casualties.

On Russian radio in Moscow this morning the newscaster said that high officials in the Russian Federal government had told the United States to immediately recall their Navy commandos back to defend Germany from their positions in Ukraine and Poland.

So our host is playing “The Hardest Cut” now at 3 a.m. my time.

August 3, 2022

In behind the scenes reporting in Europe the younger men say that the U.S. decides who gets to widen their job search under E.U. employment rules to countries other than their own.  A high percentage of them state they will not honor a call up because the U.S. allowed one and a half million  men from Ukraine their full E.U. privileges that they had promised them when Ukraine membership was finalized.

August 4

I could hear my lady Michelle for several minutes this morning. She said that President Macron of France said that he was asking tourists and business interests around the world to cancel trips to Europe indefinitely – from Stockholm to Athens. It’s his opinion that both sides are making unreasonable demands.

August 8

I hear that the Moscow newspaper Pravda (Truth in English) bought space in the major newspapers in Kiev, Warsaw, Helsinki and Stockholm for publication this morning and the papers actually ran the Pravda supplied news articles.

I’m a Church lady and am I ever glad we finally have a Supreme Court that believes in God.  I never wanted or want to be told I have to have an abortion.

Now what about my pocket book.  I don’t see how I’m ever going to buy computers for both Massachusetts and Berkeley.

My news Internet needs help.  I heard that West Coast CNN has been making phones calls to talk radio in San Francisco about Governor Mills.  We only have what’s his name’s brother saying things like, “Kelly Ayotte? Who’s that. I’ve never heard of her.” I heard she said that since the staff replacements at East Coast CNN she has straightened out the false stories about her and she’s planning on running for the House of Representatives. I haven’t heard any news about our Susan Collins since it was LePage 39%, Cutler 36% and some Massachusetts democrat 19%.

War, war, war. Endless war. Which came first – the chicken or the egg? National should put their hands in the air. We’re the real Minnesota state prison hospital multiphasic exam ‘too smart’ top 50! All Trump said about the media is that National embellishes his public comments and that Hunter does more deals with billionaires money than he does.

I’ve been huddling with my friends and we’re ready to make our predictions for the 2024 elections.  All we need to make good is two more years of this crappe diem.  Independents 40%, Biden and the Navy 30% to 35% and Trump with his right wingers 25% to 30%. I get so excited when I hear in the radio background that 30% of California voters want to hear possible candidates speak about running as West Coast Independents and that 10% to 12% of voters from Houston to Gainesville would like to hear possible candidates speak about running as Gulf Coast Independents.

I am very sympathetic to Michelle as I know that both the swaggers and union swaggers would like to force divestiture of her husband Steve for various self-interests.  Sometimes I can hear them threatening her gruffly.

Daily Mail

We’re still doing it the same way — just three times as fast!

These early submarines unfortunately were not flown by HAL 9000 workstations.  I’m not going to test my AMD 5000 series ‘Net ripper workstation and photo-like Philips display by throwing them off of a three story building and I’m sure they’re faster than an ex-President’s HAL 9000 workstation. AND my hundred dollar a year subscription to the Washington Post and New Yorker are even more tech oriented than a two pound a day subscription to the London Times premium edition.

Now here is the funny part of my comment – my kiosk is free!


[[Oh, look!  My sons have renamed my website to //  My sons have a website blackmuskettechnologies.]]

You might be wondering where ‘Irony and Absurdity’ went.  My Megan Marie is drawing a cartoon called “Irony Loves Absurdity.”

Megan Marie and her mother Michelle are maintaining websites named “Ink Smudges” and “Blue Cinnamon’s Thursday.” Megan Marie publishes her cartoons with her mother Michelle on Blue Cinnamon’s Thursday ( in French and English since I’m told PEI is French first like Quebec.) The Quebec Faith and Writers’ Guild has offered them admission. Megan Marie assists her mother Michelle who is a Deaconess conduct homily Mass on Saturday mornings.

Megan Marie’s grandmother is a PhD psychologist and a really nice lady.  Megan Marie hopes to be a psychologist someday and hopes to write about the things she has witnessed happening to her father.

[Megan Marie (flute), Steven Matthew (clarinet) and Lynn Robert (piano) are an accomplished jazz band I might add.]

My Steven Matthew and Lynn Robert chase the bandits that try to hit my computer.  [[ My sons have started another website as well – “Gun Check.”  They intend to present features of interesting news such as comes into a news media throughout the night, opinion and humor [especially humor.]] ]] My Lynn Robert is 15 and his brother Steven Matthew is 13.  They have been reading professional documentation for several years already.  Mother Michelle’s friends have a computer services company and they advocate ECC memory for your equipment especially on the Internet. They have everything optimized and they catch “snowballs” from someone trying to hit my computer which they analyze.  They are junior Interpol Internet security agents already and Interpol has legal suits against a couple of groups. [My sons say that since I am always making my workstation available to them that I am an honorary Interpol Internet Security Agent!!!] They are accomplished at programming in Qt to which Linux is being converted.  When I get updates now frequently they are written in Qt5. Most Unix OS’s which are used on the Internet are written in C programming language.

My sons tell me that government research laboratories have highly advanced two thread utilities to break into another persons computer but they [my sons] have been writing advanced four thread tracer utilities which report to Interpol laboratories which help make  the international business Internet safe for consumers banking and etc. They write in the advanced Qt and PythonQt languages which run more securely and faster than C and C++ languages and languages based on C. They have set my computer up as a test bed so now I can listen to music and read news sites while my computer traces bandits trying to break into my computer or send me look alike sites with false news. Or so we hope. My sons also tell their Internet friends that their new AMD 5800X3D CPU makes their workstation 14% faster and their new Philips 32″ Momentum display with HDMI 2.1 another almost 5% faster.

Cal lifestyle dreaming

I don’t have a condo or a bowl of black cherries on a table in the dining room but I have a pretty good lifestyle on Social. WalMart delivers my groceries right on time.  I don’t need to worry about weather like tornado alley while hiding in my basement and it does sprinkle once in a while in the maritimes forest in Maine and so far it has only reached 90F once this year. I was just hearing that Cal has asked that Internet servers be optimized for 300 meg downloads from 125 meg. I had Spectrum download optimized downward to 300 meg about an hour ago and I note that the music on DI.FM is richer and even higher fidelity. I have some of my sons personally programmed software on my net ripper now and it runs about 50% faster than just a month ago.

There are rumors about the Baidu Gamer’s Distro which the Chinese company Baidu Technologies authors. It however cannot be seen from the U.S. Baidu is also a browser and search engine author. They write in Qt and PythonQt for their Linux distro version and they claim their software is 27% faster that Ubuntu and that versions of all the games on the market can be downloaded from their website for $10 U.S. per game and they run about 15% faster than on Microsoft. My sons company Black Musket Technologies consults for Bombardier and as of this time there is no plan to release a public version of their in-house distro.

I can barely contain myself waiting for my sons to start writing “computerized gedanken” in support of their A.I. projects when they have them.

Jennifer Aniston and friend (Because of the white breast my sons think the bird is a 9 pound lady musket – sometimes referred to as a sparrow hawk but it is actually a kestrel. The male, mostly black, sometimes weighs 17 pounds and dives at 170 mph. [from info I found on the Net about 9 years ago – about 2014.]) The music for this beautiful photo is from Klaus Schulz’ masterpiece album “Mirage.” I imagine ‘Crystal Lake’ to be a tale of a white bear hunting men on a frozen lake.  It absolutely puts “Ride of the Valkyries” in its place.

  “Crystal Lake” — Klaus Schulz


I am sitting around and daydreaming about poems I will write someday.

While I have been daydreaming Michelle and her sidekick Megan Marie have won recognition from the Church for a Christian spirited poem they have written.  Our family foundation INK Smudges Family Foundation has won recognition for the websites they are sponsoring and in which they are publishing.  Thanks guys – you’re great

So Star Trek is a huge world-wide phenomena.  I have some nominees for shows and movies that are a lot more plausible which I hope to add to my collection as well over the next year – “Voyage to the Bottom of the Sea,” “Wild, Wild West” and “The Avengers.”

I suggested to you some time back that you try hot chocolate and tea for your breakfast latte if you are a tea drinker rather than coffee as I am.  I wanted to tell you that I think some of the herbal teas are good for a latte as well.  For instance hot chocolate and St John’s wort tea or mint tea are good and they are very relaxing. As I pointed out in another place on this website St John’s wort is a precursor for serotonin, mint tea is a precursor for acetylcholine and chamomile helps brain cells expel the byproducts from thinking so much. I have three hot chocolate breakfast latte’s and two chamomile (vanilla and honey version) refrigerated teas every day.



La Croix

I wrote this poem then asked for support and a man tells this statement from Saint John in Red, “I am over one hundred twenty years now and I have outlived all the other Apostles. I remember the good times more that the bad times. I can barely remember Jesus’ death but I remember every word of the Sermon on the Mount like it was this morning.”

   “So What” — Miles Davis

  “Circle Game” — Joni Mitchell

When you’re on the run
Do you know who won?
When you’re on the run
Can you still see the sun?
Do you still remember
The ladies on their bicycles said
“Have fun. You’ll remember having fun.”

The question remains the same.
The ladies aim was great.
If you had fun
They know you remember the Son.
I wish my sons to have fun.
When I hear them laughing together
Then I know they know I know
They will remember forever.

(Have Fun)


In celebration God lets us realize we are free.

  “Chain Lightning” — Rush

  “Silver Scale” — Tangerine Dream

Let me spring forth
To ride the tranquil air currents
For all they are worth.
I am free in the sky
As in the sun I glide
Until I turn the tide
And make myself God’s pride.
What a ride it is
Being in touch with the Lord
In his open air cathedral
Where I often fall
But never strike the earth.
I proudly pray silently
That I enjoy abundant prey
For my family
While I bask in celebration
Of another strike for dinner.
We are not sinners
For eating well as we dwell
On the requirements of our Covenant.
How will I survive
Until I revive my lost innocence
That protected me
As before my family
I hunted the exhilaration of sport.

Amateur poet (~2018) armed with Cross and ‘Net Ripper works in this SOHO. (Eye saver version) (Modern Cross purchased from Shrine Sainte Anne.) “… … if no one tries, then the TV rises … …” At 73 with a haircut 8 years ago that finally finished me completely. The quote was heard on the weekend edition of NightStream.
