The Tale of the Swans and El Gato

The Tale of the Swans and El Gato

(KlR) The Water was so warm as I swam in the creek full of minnows and swans. I jumped in the water and…

(KB) the swans started to chant my name. I was in awe of the hospitality & kindness of my new friends.

(CK) I jumped into the pond to swim with the swans. Suddenly, a thunderstorm came into view

(KK) As the storm approached I gathered all the swans to save them.

(JK) Swans being swans, they scattered willy-nilly throughout the park. I gave up and sat down and had a Coors Lite

(DK) The Coors Lite pushed me over the edge, I’m DRUNK. I grabbed my salt gun, put on my shoes, and began the hunt.

(NS) It was so itchy in my bumhole! Suddenly, it was just so itchy!

(AK) Anyway…

(JcR) Then a big gato started crawling out of my bumhole and it started meowing at me. I offered it a Dos X Equis and we chilled on the porch in Uvalde on the Las Nueces River for the next 30 days and we lived happily ever after.

(JsR) The gato started to become unfaithful. I would wait at home for them to come home, praying that they weren’t out on the town preying on the young puss of Uvalde.

(SR) The gato was in fact preying on the young puss of Uvalde…but she was just providing for her young gatos.

(KrR) By morning the gato was found drinking the leftover wine and was super drunk

(KlR) El gato had an intervention, with his feline cousins & Apache who has intervened with his master family and told him to start dipping & smoking cigars and do less drinking & do this.

Why Democrats are losing the Latino vote

Why Democrats are losing the Latino vote

Flip District

Bill Maher explains why latinos are voting Republican more and more. Pandering to them using “latino” issues doesn’t work. They want the same things every American wants. Same for other minority groups. Watch the New Rules episode that lays it all out

“Hispanics by and large are a middle-class, hard-working people,” said Abraham Enriquez, founder and president of Bienvenido US, a conservative Hispanic group that backed Flores. “They’re thinking, ‘Which political party is really driving the economic conversation?’”

Nobody movie poster

Nobody **** 4.8.8 Very satisfying action/revenge/bad-ass-from-previous-life-comes-out-of-hiding movie. Not a deep plot but plenty of action. Stars Bob Odenkirk of Breaking Bad & Better Call Saul fame; 2 of my favorite series.

Osmo Action Camera

I have always wanted a hands-free camera. This one reviewed better than the GoPro 9 at half the cost ($199). It has tons of features and the video quality is terrific. Has great stabilization, can shoot time-lapse, Slow Motion, HDR, even 4K. It can shoot 1080P at 240fps! It has a large screen for a camera this size including one in the front you can switch to (as pictures above).

Here is some sample video using a clip for my belt

My favorite setup is to use a selfie stick (closed) and use 2 small bungie straps with 2 plastic balls at the end, to secure the selfie stick to a fence post in order to record an HCU beach volleyball match at Third Coast Volleyball Club



Why did I wait so long to enhance my new TVs with a Soundbar? I haven’t had good sound from our TV since we lived on Santee Drive in Lake Pointe. Moving into our very first home we had it wired for surround sound. Now what to do with my old Denon component system and speakers I’ve been holding on to.

Did some quick research and settled on two different bars. One for our primary living room 65′ TV and one for our downstairs media room with the 75 TV. Ordered them from Amazon this past Sunday and the first came in one day

VIZIO SB36514-G6 36″ 5.1.4

The VIZIO SB36514-G6 36″ 5.1.4 Premium Home Theater Sound System with Dolby Atmos and Wireless Subwoofer was $350. It was easy to setup, came with 26ft wires for the back speakers. Installed a phone app for it and had it setup pretty quickly. Sounded great. Not only sports, shows and movies but this system is going to make playing on the XBOX rock!

SAMSUNG 3.1ch A650 A Series

The SAMSUNG 3.1ch A650 A Series Soundbar – Dolby 5.1/ DTS Virtual: X (HW-A650, 2021 Model) was a bit more modest at $298. No back speakers but 3 primary along with the subwoofer. I didn’t want to mess with back speakers in a well trafficked area in our living room. The instructions were horrible, no app. Still fairly easy to setup and with the subwoofer connecting wirelessly, I had it up an running quickly as well. It sounds great and I’m happy with both purchases

Samsung Bluetooth Pairing: Press Source until BT Ready appears. Hold down for 5 seconds until BT Pairing appears. You can now pair with device.

Checking back on Amazon to copy the full name of these soundbars, I notice that the Vizio Soundbar I purchased is now going for $500!
