Carlisle, PA— Actually, I’m a little closer to Harrisburg… but whatever. GREAT TO BE BACK– Yes, it took a while, but we’re back. I simply got fed up with the antics at the webhost I was using.  Far too much downtime, usually caused by them.  And always without notice. For a while there, I didn’t […]

Sloatsbburg, NY–  I’m making the last 500 or so miles today, of a week that’s seen me crossing a dozen or more state lines, and running nearly 3000 miles, from the midwest to New Jersey. A productive week.  I also managed to get my internet connectivity working, finally. The snow has started.  This pic was […]

I note with some degree of interest with a resurgency  of Newt Gingrich in the early polling for Iowa.  There seems a good deal of objection to his showing up, particularly among the press who like Rick Perry and Herman Cain before him (and Michelle Bachman and Sarah Palin before him… ) is now the […]

Corning,NY– I’m dropping a load off and taking a break. From here I’ll run back to Harrisburg and then back into NY again. Kind of a weird week for routing, really. Beautiful day for a drive, though. Crisp fall day, 60 degrees not a cloud in sight.   More on “Occupy Wall Street”– I spoke […]

Westbury, Long Island, NY– A frequent stop for me… dropping off some drinks to the thirsty club shoppers. Nearly 80 here… you’d not know it was fall. Today, I’m going to do a one subject Ramble.   Some observations on the GOP races and faces: Romney:Certainly the favorite of the GOP establishment. That alone, given […]

Auburn,MA– Came in around 0130. I’m dropping a load of foam plates as this is written and will go from here to Newburgh,NY, and then who knows where. It’s been a fairly easy week so far, and as a result of some dumb luck, I’ve managed to rack up most of my base miles for […]

Rochester, NY— I’m home today, but will leave for Allentown PA tonight, for a couple of short hops. Four or five days out., in total. It’ll be a little cooler, and my truck is running well, so it should be a couple of fun days. Today is “Labor Day”. If you’re looking at your paycheck […]

So we see Ann Althouse was assaulted just recently.The story is here.  Here’s her comment on it. Does anyone not understand that this is part and parcel of the riots we see around the world in response to the setbacks the left’s been seeing? The social welfare state is coming unglued the world over, and […]

Port Chester, NY– I’m north of New York City, making a very early AM delivery. from here, I’ll drop down into Jersey to make a pickup. OBAMA OUT OF CLICHES:  When even the increasingly left-leaning POLITICO takes notice, you know Obama’s got a serious problem. Well, if you’re payong attention, at least. Obama is so […]

Albany, NY— I’m herewaiting as usual, to et the trailer unloaded. From here, I’ll go to Horeseheads, NY and then to up around Rochester. I may end up with another run from there but it’ll likely be a simple out and back. Truck’s running well, and all seems well.   Striving for Mediocrity: Over at […]

Dumbo’s Economics, more on yesterday’s Scramble theme of Barack Obama’s economic ignorance.  First up, from Robert R. Baker, American Thinker: [President Franklin] Roosevelt responded to the recession he inherited with a combination of massive spending on new government programs and sweeping controls over private industry, (sound familiar?).  His thinking was that government spending would get […]

Brooklyn, NY– I’m at a store, waiting for an offload. I often forget how crowded it gets down here. All it takes is five minutes worth of driving here to remind me.   Obama: The latest example of how socialism doesn’t work no matter who’s in front: I note with interest, David’s Scamble, this morning, […]

Watching Breitbart crush Weiner beneath his heel like an insignificant weiner, it occurs to me that Breitbart’s genius – and he really is an information genius – consists almost entirely of two pieces of knowledge: one, leftists will lie knowing the media will back them and two, the media will back them.  With those two […]

Middle Village, NYC,NY– It’s an OK place, but I don’t know as I’d want to live here. Too damned crowded for one thing. I’m here unloading at a mall, after having driven in in the small hours of  the morning… which if you’re driving anything larger than a pair of roller skates is decidedly the […]
