Waiting to Exhale

Avian bird flu or the return of the beast, it doesn't matter if your end of the world is secular or spiritual, you need to be around and take a deep breath when it's all over.

As a former service man and certified atomic/hazardous material worker, I can appreciate a good respirator (gas mask to you lay persons); and, you should too! So surf on over to and stock up.

If you've got the money check out the PAPRs (Powered Air Purifying Respirators) the best in mobile filter protection. After all, why make it your last breath when it's only money.

Don't forget the kids! They love air too.

Life Lessons

An important note to you fellows out there. Whatever you do and no matter how much you've had to drink do not, repeat DO NOT, buy the champagne! A poor fellow has had his life and career ruined by letting the heat of the moment suspend his good judgement.

An Almost Better Shave

My old microscreen Remington was ready to bite the dust. I was considering the various brands and features when I came across this rather simple design from Panasonic that has an option of using the shaver in the shower and/or with shaving cream.

I bought the Panasonic. I found that this strikes a neat compromise between slower shaving with a blade and a fast past with an electric shaver.

I'm not saying the Panasonic gets as close as a safety razor, but it does cut wiskers close and does so with reduced irritation.

P.S. I'm not getting any money for this just trying to help my fellow guys out.

R-M (Rated R for Military [Violence and Bombs])

It ain't U2, but I like this video Bombs Over Baghad--Crank the bass up.
Oh, was that a little too militant and scary? OK, here's a funny little cartoon to cheer you up--Nancy boy!

Viva Bardot

Thanks to the King Country Library system--the only thing that King County has ever done right--I came across a film from my murky past when I was an over stimulated junior high student "Viva Maria" starring Bridget Bardot.
For some reason, Viva Maria had stuck in my mind as one of those hot films I was too young to see in 1965, so it gave me some joy to check off one more item on my list of boyhood prurient goals.
The plot and acting are pretty much what you would expect for a mid-1960s comedy/action/naughty film. The main hook of the story is that Maria and Maria inadvertently develop the strip tease and then help to lead a revolution in a central american country. (This is why I could never make it in Hollywood. I would break out laughing trying to pitch this script).
Bardot is pretty, but unfortunately doesn't spend enough time stripping or singing. Also, the Maxim machine gun doesn't get enough screen time either. However, it's worth a watch if you would like to get a taste of what made the 1960s cheesey, and what got your dad's heart beating faster.
Added bonus, George Hamilton plays a supporting role for an extra touch of lounge lizard nostalgia.

When the Legends Die

From the "Everything You Know Is Wrong" Department, some information regarding the famous last helicopter out of Saigon photo:

Hu Van Es ... has long had a problem trying to explain to people that his famous picture of a helicopter evacuating refugees shows the roof of an apartment block, not the US embassy.

If any person out there knows of a accurate historic photo, please contact me.
