Had a freeby weekend.
First, my son had some tickets for a dinner cruise up the Willamette River on the Portland Spirit that he suddenly couldn't attend.
So he gave us the tickets and we had a wonderful time with a great steelhead dinner and a lightning show on our return to Port on the upper deck.
This was an excellent documentary. So I decided to find charts that show how this happened.
Western powers are losing their grip on global dominance. The rise of the BRICS+ provides other countries (especially in the global south) with an alternative to the IMF slavery through indebtedness program. Will these countries be paying off western debt with yuan? I understand the IMF is now accepting yuan as payment (as are the Saudi's and many others). However, this slip of power accompanies a rising sense of desperation, and desperate times lead to desperate measures. Suddenly there's a new strain of omicron COVID (which manifests like a cold), but be afraid, very afraid. Leaders blatantly lie...Ukraine is winning our proxy war! Indict your leading competitor and suppress your crimes using the DOJ. Rational voices are suppressed, and the censorship industrial complex goes into high gear. So today let's look at these stories and more below the fold...
Afternoon folks! I hope that you're all having a great holiday weekend.
This week in the blues category there's a Jimmy Dawkins album, a UK import album from Billy Boy Arnold and a Clifton Chenier album. In the blues rock category there are live albums from Ten Years After and Johnny Winter, an album from The Electric Flag, an album from Tracy Nelson and we finish up with a some rock from The Pretty Things.

In 5 weeks irrigation season will be over. I can tuck all the equipment away until next spring. Then take a bit of a break.
