Still trying to battle my way through this hiccup on Blogger that won't let me post imagery - so I'm trying it via my DingleBerry device; we'll see - S.L.

I'm in DC this weekend, staying at the home of good friends who over the years have provided me a quiet place to cool my heels between adventures.

Pictured here is their cottage - it is a veritable writer's sanctuary - I've done some of my best writing at that desk.


UPDATE: Glitch with imagery resolved. Stand by to Stand by. - S.L.



Blogger is acting up and not letting me post pics - until I can get to the bottom of whatever's going on, please enjoy this amazing link, sent by a good friend of the family over in the U.K.

Anyway it's Sunday so this is apropos . . . cheers, Sean

Click HERE for a virtual tour of the Sistine Chapel, done by Villanova at the request of the Vatican.

Amazing what can be done with modern technology. Simply follow the directions for fantastic views, especially the +, zoom in, icon.) use the mouse to access all areas of Michelangelo's masterpiece. To view every part of Michelangelo's masterpiece, just click and drag your arrow in the direction you wish to see. In the lower left, click on the plus (+) to move closer, on the minus (-) to move away.

This is especially spectacular if you have a large high-definition screen! Too detailed to appreciate on an I-Phone.

The Choir is thrown in free.

Now everybody can enjoy a little bit of Rome on their computer.

Rule # One:

If you pull into my driveway and honk, you'd better be delivering a package, because you're sure as Hell not picking anything up.

Rule Two:

You do not touch my daughter in front of me. You may glance at her, so long as you do not peer at anything below her neck. If you cannot keep your eyes or hands off of my daughter's body, I will remove them.

Rule Three:

I am aware that it is considered fashionable for boys of your age to wear baseball hats on backwards and your trousers so loosely that they appear to be falling off your hips. Please don't take this as an insult, but you and all of your friends are complete idiots. Still, I want to be fair and open-minded about this issue, so I propose this compromise: You may come to the door with your hat on backwards, underwear showing and your pants ten sizes too big, and I will not object. However, In order to ensure that your clothes do not, in fact, come off during the course of your date with my daughter, I will take my pneumatic nail gun and fasten your trousers securely in place to your waist. And while I'm at it I will rotate your baseball hat so the visor's in front, like it should be.

Rule Four:

I'm sure you've been told that in today's world, sex without utilizing a "barrier method" of some kind can kill you. Let me elaborate: when it comes to sex, I am the barrier, and I WILL kill you.

Rule Five:

In order for us to get to know each other, we should talk about sports, politics, and other issues of the day. Please do not do this. The only information I require from you is an indication of when you expect to have my daughter safely back at my house, and the only word I need from you on this subject is "early."

Rule Six:

I have no doubt you are a popular fellow, with many opportunities to date other girls. This is fine with me as long as it is okay with my daughter. Otherwise, once you have gone out with my little girl, you will continue to date no one but her until she is finished with you. If you make her cry, I will make you cry.

Rule Seven:

As you stand in my front hallway, waiting for my daughter to appear, and more than an hour goes by, do not sigh and fidget. If you want to be on time for the movie, you should not be dating. My daughter is putting on her makeup, a process that can take longer than painting the Golden Gate Bridge. Instead of just standing there, why don't you do something useful, like change the oil in my car?

Rule Eight:

The following places are not appropriate for a date with my daughter: Places where there are beds, sofas, or anything softer than a wooden stool. Places where there are no parents, policemen, or nuns within eyesight. Places where there is darkness. Places where there is dancing, holding hands, or happiness.

Places where the ambient temperature is warm enough to induce my daughter to wear shorts, tank tops, midriff T- shirts, or anything other than overalls, a sweater, and a goose-down parka zipped up to her throat. Movies with a strong romantic or sexual theme are to be avoided; movies which features chain saws are okay. Hockey games are okay. Old folks homes are better.

Rule Nine:

Do not lie to me. I may appear to be a balding, middle-aged, dimwitted has-been. But on issues relating to my daughter, I am the all-knowing, merciless God of your Universe. If I ask you where you are going and with whom, you have one chance to tell me the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth. My personal intelligence network is extensive and it is everywhere. I also have a shotgun, a shovel, and five acres behind the house. Do not trifle with me.

Rule Ten:

Be afraid. Be very afraid. It takes very little for me to mistake the sound of your car in the driveway for an inbound re-supply chopper. When my Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) starts acting up, the voices in my head frequently tell me to start cleaning my guns as I wait for you to bring my daughter home. As soon as you pull into the driveway you should exit your car with both hands in plain sight. Speak the perimeter password, announce in a clear voice that you have brought my daughter home safely and early, then return to your car. There is no need for you to come inside. The camouflaged face at the window is mine.

Military blogger Michael Yon is drawing all sorts of attention to himself this week, and once again, not the good kind.

Michael Yon has opted to piss off just about everyone over the past few years.

What started as a simple, balanced thread to talk about Yon’s views on medevacs and the removal of red crosses, turned into a thread all about Yon by Yon, after Yon became rude, arrogant, and threatening towards members of the forum.

The thread started on, a website that includes more than 1,000 members, made up former and active Green Berets. The site is run by Jeff Hinton, a former Green Beret who is well-known for outing Green Beret impersonators, including the now-former Pipeworks Software chief Robert Daly who I briefly wrote about recently.

In case you were on the fence about Yon, now he’s managed to piss off former and active Green Berets . . .

If you want to get more perspective on the story, jump over to Blackfive

IS IT THE RED WIRE ? . . . or . . .

. . . the BLUE WIRE ? ? ?

Last Cold War-era B-53 Thermonuclear Bomb Dismantled

Experts have separated around 300lb (136kg) of high explosives from the bomb's uranium "pit".

One of the biggest nuclear bombs ever built at a hefty 10,000lbs, the B53 was the size of a minivan and 600 times more powerful than the atomic bomb dropped on Hiroshima, Japan, in 1945.

It was first put into service at the height of the Cold War in 1962, and remained in the US arsenal until 1997.

The bomb was designed to hit targets deep underground, such as bunkers in which military and civilian leaders might be sheltering.

Known within the illicit arms dealer community as "El Presidente"

I lived in Bangkok for many years and I remember seeing Sukhumvit Road (the main drag through the newer part of the city) three feet under water with people getting to work by sampan. This report comes from a member of my personal intelligence organization, the "League of SuperFriends" - S.L.

Don Muang Airport unaffected, no noticable change in airport operations.

Route to Don Muang Airport (Vibhavadi Rangsit Rd, an elevated highway with tolls) mostly unaffected. From the northern edge of the Central Business District until the airport, in most areas (over 50%), cars were parked on the highway.

Don Muang area (North of Central Business District): there is some flooding of roads at ground level, generally to the immediate West of Don Muang airport, directly under Vibhavadi Rangsit Rd. Patches 25-100m long, down to 40cm deep, still passable by sedans.

Lak Si area (North/Northeast of Central Business District): northern road to Lak Si flooded, impassable to vehicles. (Junction of Lam Lukka Rd and Phahon Yothin Rd, approx 2km North of Don Muang airport).

Sathon area (Southwest of Central Business District, Chao Phraya riverside): water approx 50 cm below breaking banks, no indications of recent flooding, businesses continued unaffected, no indications of imminent evac by locals. However, locals expressed concern that the area may flood in 3-4 days. Defensive sandbagging (approx 25%) / concrete walls (approx 5%) were inconsistently employed.

Chao Phraya River: approx 50cm from bursting banks IVO the Mandarin Oriental Hotel and Millennium Hilton Hotel.

Chao Phraya River: minimal flooding from approx Phra Pok Klao Bridge north until Rama 8 Bridge. Poorer locals affected.

Chao Phraya River: surrounding area of the Grand Palace is flooded, palace protected by sandbags.
