Harpoon Harry’s! My favorite place for breakfast and lunch.
I frequently mention Harpoon Harry’s. The food is outstanding and reasonably priced. The staff friendly. The decor/atmosphere warm old time diner.
I headline Harpoon Harry’s today for a special reason. They have a spread on Facebook. Tons of pictures.
My “special” favorite meals are lasagna on tuesday and turkey dinner on wednesday. Lasagna like my grandmother made. Turkey dinner is Thanksgiving every wednesday.
Paul Newman’s posthumous memoir The Extraordinary Life of an Ordinary Man was recently published. . I have had the opportunity to read excerpts. Especially good. Particularly the sex life he and his wife Joanne Woodward shared.
Their daughter Clea shared a funny recollection re Newman’s sexual reputation: “I was walking through a supermarket with my Mom. We were paying, and there was a magazine at the checkout. Mom looked over and it was Dad on the cover – and it said, ‘Sexiest Man Alive,’ or whatever. By that time he was like 75 or 80. She looked at me and said, ‘Oh, for Christ’s sake, still?'”
Bob Woodward’s new essay is being released tomorrow. Eight hours of audio of interviews he had with Donald Trump. It is reported Woodward’s comments are not “coy about Trump as a danger to American democracy and to the future of the country.”
Certain of Woodward’s comments.
In 2020 when “Rage” ended: “Trump is the wrong man for the job.”
Two years later: “I didn’t go far enough, Trump is an unparalleled danger…..Trump was overwhelmed by the job.”
After 4 years in the Presidency, the record shows: “Trump – led and continues to lead – a seditious conspiracy to overthrow the 2020 election, which is an effort to destroy democracy.”
Trump brought a lawsuit last week against publication and dissemination of the audio in which he also seeks damages. Claims any monies his because they are his words.
What a smuck!
Pope Francis continues to be under serious attack.
Catholic hierarchy are split as in the U.S. and rest of Europe. Far right Cardinals have wanted to depose Francis since he was elevated to the Papacy. A question continues whether the good man can survive the schismatics. Francis’ opponents continue their efforts to gather like-minded Cardinals in conspiratorial meetings not known since the Medieval Ages.
I have addressed the issue several times over the years. Mentioning each time the involvement of Steve Bannon and Newt Gingrich on the side of the anti-Francis group.
Bannon has sought to overthrow Francis since day one. Received Trump support big time when Francis compared Trump’s election to the rise of Hitler.
Bannon was joined in his efforts by Newt Gingrich. Gingrich got a front row seat. Even shared offices in the Vatican with the U.S. Ambassador to the Holly See. Trump appointed Calista Gingrich. Newt’s wife, Ambassador.
The dynamic duo, Bannon and Gingrich, had it knocked during Trump’s Presidency.
Eminem is an American rapper and record producer. Some acclaim him the greatest rapper of all time.
I am not particularly a fan. His beliefs and mine run in different directions. However every now and then someone I do not necessarily agree with comes up with a saying I do subscribe to. Eminem has: “The truth is you don’t know what is going to happen tomorrow. Life is a crazy ride, and nothing is guaranteed.”
Enjoy your day!
