Hey Sophie, You describe Italy perfectly. One question, how do you dry home made pasta. Grazie Mille


Dan Kuechenmeister 5 days, 21 hours ago on Our View: Responding well to kerfuffle

Somehow or another I am thinking that those who were impacted by the city council decision to mess up the transit system never used the term kerfuffle. That is just the Pilot's way of saying move along, move along, nothing to see here


Dan Kuechenmeister 6 days, 8 hours ago on Book Review: 'Secret Six' for those fascinated with the Revolutionary War

From a speech made by David Stockman on Jan 20, 2015.

"My humble thesis tonight is that the entire 20th Century was a giant mistake.

And that you can put the blame for this monumental error squarely on Thomas Woodrow Wilson——-a megalomaniacal madman who was the very worst President in American history……..well, except for the last two.

"By so altering the course of history, Wilson’s war bankrupted Europe and midwifed 20th century totalitarianism in Russia and Germany.

These developments, in turn, eventually led to the Great Depression, the Welfare State and Keynesian economics, World War II, the holocaust, the Cold War, the permanent Warfare State and its military-industrial complex.

They also spawned Nixon’s 1971 destruction of sound money, Reagan’s failure to tame Big Government and Greenspan’s destructive cult of monetary central planning.

So, too, flowed the Bush’s wars of intervention and occupation, their fatal blow to the failed states in the lands of Islam foolishly created by the imperialist map-makers at Versailles and the resulting endless waves of blowback and terrorism now afflicting the world.

And not the least of the ills begotten in Wilson’s war is the modern rogue regime of central bank money printing, and the Bernanke-Yellen plague of bubble economics which never stops showering the 1% with the monumental windfalls from central bank enabled speculation."

A bit lengthy but interesting

When you enter Eagleswatch at Stagecoach signs say leash laws and dogs barking laws are enforced. Enforced by whom. What a joke. Dogs run free and bark when they want to.

1700 private jets to and from Davos to discuss climate change/global warming. You just can't make that stuff up. The good news is with the Swiss National Bank removing the Swiss Franc peg to the Euro, the cost of their stay is suddenly 15 - 20 % higher, not that it matters to them

George, Your comment came back. i am a big believer that the days of the jackboots are not that far off. The good news is i am of your vintage and so things tend to not be as important for me. My kids, well that's a different story. Chive on!

George, This is the Pilot's playground and they decide who gets to play on it and when. Just ask Steve Mendell. Banned because allegedly one of our playmates complained.

Eric, Lots of homes in Eastern Europe purchased using swiss franc denominated mortgages. Their monthly payments just went up 15+%. OOPS
