projectus interruptus
Friday, September 3, 1999

i hate coming back to a partially finished project regardless of the cause of the initial interruption because trying to find the common thread of where I left off is often more tedious than starting over. If there's one thing I've learned in 10 years of owning and operating this 20acre garden center & nursery, it's that constant interruptions are SOP (standard operating procedure). The other thing I've learned is that I can't change SOP. So I either get in very early before the phones start ringing and people walk into my office, or I stay late after the hubris has abated. I prefer early. The drought does have a positive side: it's slowed the calls and walk-ins down so that I can get things done without many interruptions at all. The "25% Off Fall Nursery Stock Sale", which started Wednesday, negated that and the place is busy once more.

Around The Garden Center.
Sure, I gripe-whine-moan-bitch-complain about the drought and diminishing groundwater levels throughout the region, but last Thursday evening we finally got some of our due: 2.5" of rain from a very powerful thunderstorm. It knocked out power and phones and laid surprisingly little of the nursery stock in containers, over flat. My multi-million-gallon-plus retention ponds filled up quickly and overflowed, all kinds of debris flowed down the driveways. I had already left for the day, but the telltale signs of water were evident the next morning. Friday was a clean-up day.
Friday was also set-up day for the 48th Annual Shrewsbury Flower Show, which we've been involved with for the past nine years. It runs Saturday and Sunday. Technically, it's one of the finest shows I've ever seen. Imagine that: way out here in south central Pennsyl-tucky, something as marvelous as that. Our display greets all visitors to the show, isn't entered in the category judging, but always wins Best of Show ribbons; a "gratis" thing from the Show Committee for our community service efforts. Thanks, ladies.
It poured 2/10" rain after closing at 5:25pm Friday, while heading to The Paddock Bar & Grill to get my triple-decker "Turkey Club" sandwich and head for home and several glasses of '96 Sebastiani Cabernet Sauvignon. The benefits are amazing.
Last week, we completed two of the smaller ($10,000 range) landscape jobs, clearing the way for all the larger ($20,000+) jobs I've booked through November to be installed without hindrance. All get either drip irrigation or soaker hose systems installed; mandatory to maintain my 5 Year Warranty. The smaller jobs were fine when I had two landscape crews; the work could be split up between the "A & B Teams". Now they just get in the way, since I've had to lay-off the "B Team" due to the unending Drought of '99.
My General Manager, Lynn, finally got her Front Counter P-200 working again by re-installing Win95; apparently the older motherboard and chipset couldn't handle Win98. That's all that can be surmised at this point. Installing a v.90 modem shouldn't have made the entire unit crash two weeks ago. With Windows 9.x, who really knows? Lynn and Bob, her husband, took their daughter, Jessica up to the University of Pittsburgh at Bradford PA Campus to start her freshman year of college. Jess and her sister Ashley, have worked here part time for a couple of years.
In a Lions-and-the-Christians type mis-match, Penn State made all the locals happy. Me? Nah, I don't follow sports anymore. Too many Dennis Rodman-Magic Johnson-Pete Rose lowlife slime involved, in all colors of the spectrum.
Looks like Hurricane Dennis won't give us the moisture we need afterall. A Cannuck high pressure system brought very cool weather to the northeast and mid-atlantic regions, but in doing so, pushed Dennis further out into the Atlantic. I'd much rather have the hot weather and rain than the cooler weather. All we've gotten is clouds and more clouds; no rain at all. Bummer.
I took Tuesday off and went shopping for much-needed "stuff", cleaned the Jeep's interior, and did some minor projects around the condo. It sure was nice sleeping until 11am; I could easily get used to that.
They're getting closer to that magic number of 800mhz cpu: the 700 PIII is soon out, and the 800 won't be too far behind. The instant the 800 hits the market, I'll be on the phone to SAG Electronics placing an order. Zooooom!
We're still deeply into a drought emegency and the idiot democrat governor of neighboring Maryland lifts the water usage restrictions? Huh? Tell me that's not political. They're in worse shape than Pennsylvania is, currently.

Grist For Serious Thought.
Cohen used to be a trustworthy Republican, but since he's fallen in the Clinton as Secretary of Defense, I'm not so sure.
For the Secretary of Defense to write this cogent and scary piece, makes me think he's conditioning the American People to get ready for an onslaught of terrorist attacks, or WW3. What do you think?

Y2K Violence.
Yep, I'm ready with enough firepower and food to last 6 months. But I only expect it to last for 3-4 days. The so-called utility companies will have it repaired by then. Actually, there's nothing wrong with their systems; it's their way of controlling you and me. Pavlovian Response Theorem. Get it? I do, all too quickly.

Clinton Slime.
Trying to "buy" Puerto Rican votes for the carpetbagging Hitlery bitch by letting 16 convicted, murderous terrorists go is just another example of how Bubba subverts US Law when it suits his needs. Opposed by dozens of law enforcement organizations most notably the FBI the Clinton moron intends to go ahead with allowing murderers and terrorists back on to the streets, pandering to the PR community in New York City. Out-f*cking-rageous that he can get away with this. The US Supreme Court needs to step in and convict him of numerous crimes and remove him from office, something the lowlife sons and daughters of bitches in the US Senate didn't have the guts to do.
Why anyone would ante up from $5,000 to $25,000 to have dinner with a nauseating deviate, rapist, liar and criminal like Clinton is beyond me? He should be a pariah to everyone. The most logical answer is that liberal democrat scumbags have no ethics or morals, just like the Clinton filth.
There goes the neighborhood. The lying, criminal Clintonoids are planning to install themselves in an innocent New York neighborhood, so the Hitlery bitch can run for the US Senate from New York state. Talk about ruining property values and lowering a neighborhood's overall equity. Ummm, I don't think the Jews in Crown Heights are too fond of Hitlery, either.
There goes the neighborhood, part 2. The pentagon's former intern slut and oral sex bunny, Monica you-know-who, is also taking up residence in the Village section of Manhattan. It's so full of deviates and degenerates she'll probably be unnoticed. She's renting an apartment owned by the US Government, ironically appropriate considering she used to polish the president's knob and dutifully swallowed his DNA on many occasions. Isn't the world sick of that manic depressive, fatso bitch by now? Not so fast: the Monica slut has her own line of handbags and gladrags. Won't you contribute to maintain her sluttish lifestyle?

Bore2000.
The Gore-Bore is at it again, trying to make people think he can handle the job of president, when in fact, he can't get anything of any consequence done. His own party members are shunning him; they know what a moron he is and they don't want any part of a loser.
Gore is a pandering ass-licker, trying to get racist scum like Jesse "gimme alla ya money whitey dogs" Jackson and Bill Cosby to endorse him. Like those two scumbags will make any difference to voters. Both should be dragged to death behind a pick-up truck, along with ultra-racists Sharpton and Farrakan.
shit for brains Gore has another problem: Russian crime syndicates laundering $10+ billion through NY banks also begs the question of whether Clinton and Gore have paid too much attention to a government riddled with corruption. Methinks he has a tricky road to walk on this issue.
Taking a whole chapter from Danny "I can't spell wortha shit" Quayle, here's just a few of Prince AlGore's major mis-statement, f*ck-ups I could find in search engine reservoirs:
"If we don't succeed, we run the risk of failure."
"Democrats understand the importance of bondage between a mother and child."
"Welcome to President Clinton, Mrs. Clinton, and my fellow astronauts."
"Mars is essentially in the same orbit... Mars is somewhat the same distance from the Sun, which is very important. We have seen pictures where there are canals, we believe, & water. If there is water we can breathe."
"The Holocaust was an obscene period in our nation's history. I mean in this century's history. But we all lived in this century. I didn't live in this century."
"I believe we are on an irreversible trend toward more freedom and democracy, but that could change."
"One word sums up probably the responsibility of any vice president that one word is 'to be prepared'."
"Verbosity leads to unclear, inarticulate things."
"I have made good judgments in the past. I have made good judgments in the future."
"The future will be better tomorrow."
"We're going to have the best-educated American people in the world."
"People that are really very weird can get into sensitive positions and have a tremendous impact on history."
"I stand by all the misstatements that I've made."
"We have a firm commitment to NATO, we are a *part* of NATO. We have a firm commitment to Europe. We are a *part* of Europe."
"Public speaking is very easy."
"I am not part of the problem. I am a Democrat."
"A low voter turnout is an indication of fewer people going to the polls."
"When I have been asked who caused the riots and the Killing in L.A., my answer has been direct & simple: Who is to blame for the riots? The rioters are to blame. Who is to blame for the Killings? The whackers are to blame."
"Illegitimacy is something we should talk about in terms of not having it."
"We are ready for any unforeseen event that may or may not occur.
"For NASA, space is still a high priority."
"Quite frankly, teachers are the only profession that teach our children."
"The American people would not want to know of any misquotes that Al Gore may or may not make." "We're all capable of mistakes, but I do not care to enlighten you on the mistakes we may or may not have made."
"It isn't pollution that's harming the environment. It's the impurities in our air and water that are doing it."
"[It's] time for the human race to enter the solar system."
"As many of you know, I was very instrumental in the founding of the Internet."
Nice going AlGore-Bore, you shithead. And we all thought Quayle was an idiot; the Gore-Bore is a cretin and makes Quayle pale in direct comparison.

Lying Reno Bitch.
Claiming she was misled by the FBI about Waco, the most politically compromised and sexually challenged attorney general in US History, Janet Reno, again lied to America as her liar and rapist boss has done for the past 7 years and vowed to get to the bottom of it all. Sure thing, bitch.
She's dirty and guilty in the Waco Mess mess; she'll have to resign. Unless... she can again get away with dumping the responsibility on to several subordinates and getting their collective heads on a platter. That's the liberal scumbag way.
I hate religious cults does Charles Manson (Tate-LaBianca murders 1967), Jim Jones (Jonestown Africa mass suicide), Sun Yung Moon (Moonie Chink criminals), L. Ron Hubbard (Scientology filth), Jim & Tammy Baker (Religious Right criminals) et al, ad infinitum, ad nauseum ring any bells? so I feel no remorse at Waco or Ruby Ridge. f*ck the libertarian and liberal scumbags. Fringe cults and deviate religions have no place in this society; waste the scum.

Bullshit Dept.
Why doesn't the US have the fastest fiber optic network, rather than the Cannucks up north? Instead, we have dozens of moron phone and cable companies who grudgingly accept bandwidth standards and charge far too much for connectivity. They drag their feet on access and milk the consumer for every dime they can get for poor service.
Nothing is secure forever in the cyber world. Now, a group of scientists has cracked the RSA-155 e-commerce encryption code used worldwide and has proven that with time and money and equipment, nothing is secure. Great.
Guess it paid to be 15 years younger, in this case. Survivability in youth, and all that shit. Do the math.
Who the f*ck cares about who won the Alabama Straw Poll, anyway? Bush has got it sewn up. He's not my candidate for 2000. Who's yours? Write me.
Many thousands of blacks dying from AIDS than from guns. Wake up, people. People gotta take responsibility for their own actions. It's preventable death through behavorial modification. Simple stuff: don't ingest someone else's bodily fluids.
The world is so f*cking sick of the US-client state, Israel, lying and delaying the Wye Peace Accord.
The Paducah Nuclear Mess threatens to get much worse. Past employees and are dying by the bus-load. The US Gov't is seriously complicit in this crime.
Fire these overpaid, whining, liberal teacher scum for walking out on their students, in clear violation of the law, on the day before classes were to start. This is another example of why unions have ruined American business and should be abolished.
Aw gee whiz, fellas: no one feels sorry for you ex-multi-millionaire child TV stars who squandered away your money. Quit your f*cking whining and get a job and get on with life. Work through it, stupid misfits, all.
That this piece of white trash slut would threaten others is obscene; jail the lowlife piece of garbage. A f*cking cheerleader team, she can't make? Oh boy, is she in trouble for the rest of her pathetic life? Yep.
Allowing this idiot racist a permit for the Hate March is a very bad idea, in spite of First Amendment guarrantees. He hates Jews and Whites and other African Americans; he's filth and garbage and muslim, the religion of hate. Read about this idiot and his politics of hate. He desperately needs a bullet in the head.
This shit clearly doesn't belong in the schools.
Look at the fat, stupid, waddling sweathog, Madeline Albright, sticking her crooked nose into the again failed Middle East negotiations. She's f*cked up everything she's touched since day one.

Waste The Scum.
Why the hell are we speaking collectively as a Nation worried about murderers, rapists, child molesters and traitors' rights? After they've been convicted and sentenced to DEATH, why are they permitted to live 10-20-30 years? The victims are still dead, aren't they? Of f*cking course.
Murderers can strike anyone, anywhere; rapists violate your bodily sanctity; child molesters violate a child's innocence and traitors violate the Nation's security and law. To my thinking, they're all worthy of Capitol Punishment The Death Penalty and the sooner after conviction and sentencing, the better.
Instead of coddling the 3,700+ subhuman pieces of shit on Death Row, the gas chambers ought to be dropping and plopping cyanide pellets, the electric chairs ought to be merrily buzzing away, the firing squad ought to be close to running out of ammo, the hangman's noose ought to be about frayed and worn through, and the lethal injection hypodermics ought to be plunging and lunging into myriad veins. Bang zoom! Why spend $416 billion of our tax dollars to keep this garbage alive, already having been duly convicted and sentenced? No f*cking reason I can think of. George W. Bush R-Gov of Texas is the most prodigious "executing state", but I could blow him away in a heartbeat. If elected.
Hey, try, convict, and sentence this misfit, grinning piece of subhuman shit to death. I don't understand why we're reticent about inflicting due punishment upon people duly tried, convicted and sentenced to death.
Just a reminder, NAACP racists: blacks whack blacks, not guns. They're merely the weapons of choice.
What are they waiting for? Try, convict and execute this piece of filth for the rapes and murders of four women in Yosemite. No life in prison; execution sure and fast.
Child molestation should have no statute of limitation, as California's decreed in this ruling. I support it 1,000%. Any shit for brains liberals who want to comment, either way? C'mon cowards.
This is why prison guards should carry M16s and shoot to whack any prisoner who causes any kind of a problem. Heck, I'd have no problem with just shooting and Killing prisoners at random, just for the sport of it.
A drunken DUI bum whacks 27 people in an accident and only gets 9 years? Isn't that something. The piece of shit should have gotten death.
f*ck you Timmy; time for you to die, convicted OKC bombing murderer.
This Maryland, murdering lowlife, hiding in Israel from US Justice, should be deported to the US and tried and convicted and executed here.

Diana, Who Cares?
Now that the world's found out that Diana was a bulemic, anorexic, philandering slut, manic depressive, commoner, adulterer piece of shit, no one I know gives a flying rat's ass about the bitch and her f*cked up past life.
She was as much a sleazy whore-dog as Charles was for carrying on with that lard-ass, zit-faced, pocked-face Camilla scuzbag.
So what? No loss. Big f*cking deal. Ahhh, that's the ticket.

Another Scum Cult.
As I've said before, I hate cults, and Hasidic (ultra-orthodox fanatics) Jews are a cult, pure and simple, hugely apart from the mainstream Reformed Jews. Specifically, they are the prime reason Israel is a unstable, f*cked-up Nation, politically; they are all nutcases and should be shipped back to their homeland, en masse.
Interferring in NYCs law-and-order affairs is unacceptable; if I were Dictator For A Day, those lowlifes would be gone. Shipped home in a heartbeat.
Since these Hasidic fanatics are indeed a religious cult, they need a religious state all their own; apart and away from established civilization.
New York City is the safest place in the Country. After working there for 17 years and carrying a Colt Trooper MKIII 6" in a Bianchi 'Quickdraw' Shoulderholster under my suitcoat, everyday during the lowlife, corrupt, pandering, liberal scumbags Lindsey, Koch and Dinkins I wouldn't even bother today. The crime rate is negligable, thanks to Rudy Guilanni. I have no problem with what he and the NYC Police do. Eh, a few errors, no big deal.

Wasting Time.
You'll need a java-enabled browser for enjoying this manual or auto Kaleidoscope; heck, what else have you got to waste some time on?
