Well, our first grandchild got married Saturday with many tears of joy and copious amounts of booze afterwards.
A great time had by all and two families melded together.
The groom's family turned out to be wonderful people with one of them bringing a mason jar of genuine moonshine. It's been awhile since I indulged in that.
thanks lotilizard for the reminder

Over at RBN they posted this short, six minute video:
a response to Cassiodorus' article about the West campaign.
West has hired one Peter Daou (PD) as his campaign manager. I wonder who is paying PDs salary. His lengthy interview with Sabrina did not convince me that he has seen the light. I think he is still an operative who wants to be important. I rather suspect that he has found that his status as exotic immigrant does not carry quite the clout that it once did.
A study finds that Sanctions imposed by the US are nothing but war by other means. Ironically US sanctions are backfiring as nations dump the dollar and trade in their own currency...$114,500,000,000 in US Treasuries Dumped By China and New BRICS Member Saudi Arabia. All as US debt soars to the point that just interest payments are a trillion dollars a year and going higher.
There's a plethora of blues this week, there are albums from Junior Wells, Lil Ed & The Imperials, delta slide player Mississippi Fred McDowell and Charlie Musselwhite.
In the rock vein, there's another Spirit album and then you can get all folked up with albums from The International Submarine Band (Gram Parsons - Byrds, Flying Burrito Bros) first successful band, the Grateful Dead (acoustic) and serious folkie, Jody Stecher.
Have a great weekend and enjoy!
