AND IT BEGINS HERE
Tonight begins the seventh season of
Game of Thrones.
If you have not watched this program from the beginning I would advise you to skip it tonight, until you have a chance to view it from the beginning.
The books are a fantastic read; and the series is every bit as good as the books.
My wife and I are making supper early, as last year’s Season 6 episode 9 rerun begins at seven-o-clock, followed by Season 6 episode 10; and then the long-awaited Season 7 episode 1 – the final season. We plan to binge watch.
Like The Godfather and the Hobbit and Harry Potter, Game of Thrones is destine to become a classic.
The temperature today was 84 in Maine; but

It is raining today and I can’t work outside, so I am taking the day off.
That’s my excuse and I’m sticking with it.
Time to catch up reading blogs and sharing what’s on my mind.
Bill Maher is always complaining about the ignorance of a large percentage of American voters; and the sometimes maddeningly political correctness and fantasy obsessions of liberals.
A program on Public Radio this past week-end told the story of an environmentalist movement that decided to try to reverse evolution on one of the islands that was visited by Charles Darwin in the Galapagos group - restoring the island of Pinta to the condition Darwin found when he landed.
A number of these islands are home to giant tortoise, but on the island of Pinta there was only one tortoise left: Lonesome George.
Now a tortoise is a tortoise is a tortoise, but the liberal environmentalist and college biology departments involved decided that not just any tortoise would do, but the replacements should be from the blood line of Lonesome George.
For forty years they tried to get Lonesome George to mate, but he wasn’t interested. One College professor and his female assistant went so far as spending two years trying to jack off ole George for his semen, but to no avail.
Finally, Lonesome George died. One of the scientist said he was ready to shoot him anyway.
This is the type of obsessive bull shit that liberals are known for. Probably hundreds of thousands of dollars and many hundreds of man hours were spent on this project so tourist could visit the Island and experience it as Darwin did – what a waste of time and money.
Now as to the dumbing of the voting population:
What can I say?

I am busy as hell with summer projects...
But had to post this.
Dwarf porn - really? I think it is time for the Liberal Red Neck to leave California.
It is hard to say what the Republicans are going to sneak under the radar while we are all focused on Trump the Clown.

I have a routine I try an adhere to each morning. Right out of bed I go downstairs and drink a small glass of orange juice to add electrolytes to my body; then back upstairs, stretch out, and workout twenty minutes on my Total Gym. I go from one exercise to the next without a break in-between and by the time I am finished I am in an aerobic state.
I turn around on the gym seat and place both my feet firmly on the floor, place my right hand in my left palm with thumbs touching, close my eyes and focus on slowing down my breathing. After about a minute I am conscious of my heart beat and I focus on slowing down my heart rate. That done, I focus on breathing for a few breaths and then totally blank my mind. I spend no more than five minutes in meditation after workout – and I don’t time it.
Anyone can do this with a committed practice. It begins with finding a quiet, private place to meditate. Sit comfortably on a pillow, a stool or a chair. Close your eyes and focus on your breathing: visualize the breaths going in as you expand your stomach and visualize the air exiting as you release the breath. Breath with your diaphragm. Relax. If your mind wanders bring it back to your breaths. Spend no more than five minutes – but don’t time it. When you feel totally relaxed open your eyes, focus around you and then gradually, comfortably, move your body and continue your normal day.
With a minute’s meditation (even in a doctor’s office) I can bring down my blood pressure ten to fifteen points. And you can too.
As meditation becomes natural to you, you will find you can control anxiety, and relax your body, and focus your mind in times of stress; and with five minutes morning practice you can begin each day in a better frame of mind.
