Quit My Job at CNN + Selling My House | �� SEWING REPORT BREAKING NEWS

Love CNN--Love Sewing Report.

At the end of the day we are all just trying to eat breakfast and get ready for work or school and hopefully wear something reasonable.

Good Luck to the Sewing Report--They will be very successful because they are a very good sewing show--quality, informative and interesting.

Particularly enjoyed the portrayal of Nancy Zieman who recently passed away.  There are very few showing shows on  television about making clothes and Nancy Zieman has been my go to girl for practical and quality sewing for a very long time.......her books are helpful to as in making a collar for a shirt.

Larry Hancock: Impressions from November in Dallas--JFK Lancer Conference

New post on Larry Hancock


by larryjoe2
Its hard to convey the extent of the material that gets covered at the annual November in Dallas research conference. That's partially because of the breadth of speakers but beyond that its the extent to which informal conversations and dialogs allow you to explore thoughts stimulated by those presentations.  Having been around the subject of President Kennedy's assassination for some time I'm going to share a few of the points which intrigued me personally.
First, the extent to which Malcolm Blunt and John Newman have been able to map out so much of the CIA's organizational structure and internal communications is amazing.  And while that might not seem of interest to all those who continually search for smoking guns - it should. As an example it appears not that they have traced out a routing request which directed that internal communications relating to Lee Oswald's defection were to only be circulated to Counter Intelligence - before you yawn, the second point is that the request appears to have been placed before Oswald's pseudo defection to Russia.
In another presentation, John Newman reviewed documents which showed that Henry Hecksher - a topic of previous posts here and a candidate for Richard Case Nagell's "Bob" in Mexico City - had been stationed in Havana at the same time as David Phillips and was heavily involved in security activities for Phillips, who was under commercial cover in Cuba. When you add that to travel documents showing Hecksher going to Mexico City at the same time Nagell was there and the fact that Hecksher was later assigned to head the AM/WORLD project, things become even more interesting.
Finally, I have to say that for the first time in a great many years I am fairly well convinced - by Michael Chesser's conference presentation on the enhanced HSCA skull X-rays - that there were two shots to JFK's head and that one was most definitely from the front and into the hairline, impacting at exactly the same point the Parkland Doctor indicated in his television interview that afternoon as he pointed to his own head. The presentation also confirmed the degree of post Bethesda tampering with the medical evidence which have become so clear over the years.
I can't even begin to detail the rest of the conferences, DVD's will be available from Lancer early next year. I can say that after all these years it is encouraging to see that dedicated researchers are still surfacing important new information.

Thanks, Larry, for all of your hard work and research on this very important issue.

Is Israel Destroying Palestine: J Street on @TheRonnieRe

This week, while so many of us head home to be with our families for Thanksgiving, the residents of the Palestinian village of Jabal al Baba are wondering how long their homes can remain standing.
Last Thursday, the West Bank Bedouin community received evacuation notices from Israeli authorities, ordering them to leave the village within the next eight days, after which their homes would be demolished.
Jabal al Baba, located in the important E-1 area between Jerusalem and the major settlement of Ma’aleh Adumim, is just one of many communities throughout the West Bank facing this type of threat. The development of E-1 has been a major goal of the settlement movement, which seeks to pave the way for eventual Israeli annexation of parts of the West Bank, and with it to undermine the prospects for the creation of a Palestinian state alongside Israel.
J Street U is leading our new Stop Demolitions, Build Peace campaign to defend the two-state solution and stand with the Palestinians at risk of losing their homes and communities. By opposing these demolitions, we also stand for Israel’s future as a democratic homeland for the Jewish people.
Each of our regions around the country has partnered with a particular village under threat. For myself and my fellow students in the Northwest, our partner community is Jabal al Baba.
As many of us prepare to leave campus for the holiday, we’re thinking about how the shelter and safety of home must be a fundamental right, not a privilege -- a right that Palestinians in the West Bank share.
To help Jabal al Baba and other villages like them protect their homes, we’re raising funds to help the residents battle for their rights in court. We’ll contribute every cent you give to one of the incredible organizations leading the legal defense against these evacuations and demolitions.
Whatever happens in Jabal al Baba over the next week, its residents will continue to face a struggle to defend their rights and preserve their homes.
With these contributions, we can send a clear message that as pro-Israel, pro-peace Americans, we know that standing with these communities and defending the two-state solution is the right thing to do -- and vital for the future of Israelis and Palestinians alike.
This Thanksgiving, let’s show that we’re truly thankful for the comforts of home and community -- by standing with those for whom those comforts are regularly at risk.

Arab Film Festival in San Diego--had a chance to see the movie 1948  Creation and Catastrophe.  It is not only an interesting documentary but it is also easier to understand when it comes to the issues facing Israel and Palestine and the tensions today than most historical films.

Frank Rich talks a Wake Up Call for Liberals on The Joan Hamburg Show

Always listening to the radio on The ronnie Republic Radio round-Up.......

Seriously, Joan Hamburg always gives one the idea they need to visit new York immediately for the food lovers, show goers and just plain having a good time.

After listening to Joan talk with Joanne Oppenheim about her new book The Knish War on Rivington Street I felt like I had to run right over to DZ Akins Deli and enjoy their specialties.....I love this food.  This is really one of the besst restaurants in San Diego.

Frank Rich talked with Joan about his wake up call for liberals--it was an impressive conversation about the perils of donald trump.

If you enjoy cooking Sam Sifton always has holiday tips for getting through Thanksgiving in an easier way and Joan's Ritz Cracker stuffing is lovely--it is not difficult to follow the recipe and it is a dish one can count on for flavor and being holiday-ish--it is dependable.

The NYT is one of the best organized cooking sites out there and it is not confusing.  It is a good go-to for basics.

Thanks, Joan, love your show--planning my trip to DZ Akins and New York.

A holiday tip from the cat hair cook......

Tyler Florence Holiday Feast--delicious and do-able--If I can cook it anyone can.
