i haven't had a good martini since I left New York's "advertising jungle", many years ago, so I decided to have one a few, just for auld lang syne, or whatever. I'd had more than a bellyfull with the Massacre of Tuesday, September 11th, 2001, and I wanted revenge, retaliation, justice. But I wanted to temper the anger and hatred of murderers with a little lot of extra smooth premium gin. Sure, I coulda stopped by bin Laden Liquors, gotten what I wanted, and mixed up my own drinks, but I'd rather have a pro make and serve a proper martini in the correct stemware. Finding someone who knew what s/he was doing with Gin and Vermouth, in the myriad of "gin joints" in York (PA), wasn't easy; I did finally locate an establishment and settled in for a 3-4 martini stint. Wow, what a drink; I'd forgotten the wallop the first one packed. The second went down smoothly and temporarily assuaged my anger at extremist Muslim terrorist filth. By the third, I was on the way to solving the world's many problems and dilemmas. At the fourth, I had gotten pissed off again and mentally nuked 95% of the Middle East, obliterating the bulk of the lowlife scum, and turned the oilfields over to Israel. All in all, a full day's work; heck it took God 7 days to create the world as we know it today. I was tired and bleary-eyed. Needless to say, I took a cab home.

Around The Garden Center.
Gas prices in the mid-state (PA) have dropped to $1.28.9/gal (89 oct) in the past 3 weeks, I'm guessing, since many people have postponed travel as a result of the Massacre of Tuesday, September 11th, 2001, and demand is down.
Storms came through the mid-state and Mid-Atlantic region, albeit briefly, and dropped just enough rain to wet the roads; nothing of any help. Temps dropped Saturday morning from the low 70s into the 40s; snow and ice is flying in the upper Midwest, we're expecting frost any night, and soon I'll give the order to begin moving container nursery stock into the 6 30ft x 100ft Greenhouses for the Winter. Looks like an early one and without the usual moisture-replenishing Fall rains. Bummer.
I'm still installing apps, configuring and tweaking my home machine, after the Intel motherboard and 1Ghz upgrade of last week. The difference between a 933 and 1Ghz is marginally noticeable, since I'm running a 10,000rpm Ultra-Wide, Ultra-Fast LVD2 SCSI hard drive with all SCSI hardware. The vast majority of hard drives are of the slower IDE 5,400rpm or 7,200rpm ilk. But the home machine is very fast and "clean"; devoid of all kinds of unnecessary *.dll and other junk files which have accumulated over the years, even with Symmantec SystemWorks 2001 weekly maintenance. A clean machine, unburdened with lots of large apps is always faster and more reliable. I'm not going to be installing MS-Office (Word, Excel, Publisher etc), MS-Works and a host of other programs; they're firmly ensconced on the office 933 SCSI system, so there's no need to duplicate the apps. It'll be 3-4 more days until I get all the HTML, Browser & Email Clients, FTP programs up and running to my satisfaction.
Deer Season is fully underway here in Pennsyl-tucky, and once again, entire businesses, industries and communities shut down for a week so employees and residents can shoot up trees, buildings and each other, in search of venison. Oh, some do "get a deer", but some out-of-shape hunters suffer heart attacks and die; hardly worth the price. Me? I don't like the taste of venison and believe that properly-trained professional hunters should cull the oversized herds of deer to prevent many from starving during the coming Winter. 'Nuff said.
My A-Team Landscapers are back up in Danville (PA) again for Phase 2 of the large, high-end job we did back in July; the final Phase 3 will occur in Spring 2002. I just wish the job wasn't so far away, as I'd like to be able to show this one off to customers. After I get the digital pics back, I'll put the whole thing up on the Ongoing Projects Page of the Corporate Website. My B-Team Landscapers are here all week doing tree installs; with the once-a-year 25% Off Fall Sale, we've sold 300+ large trees and are booked for installations into December. I hope the weather holds out long enough to get them completed. It was snowing all weekend just 100 miles north in Bradford (PA) and State College (PA); frost is imminent and was very heavy Tuesday, they said. They returned a day early after successfully completing the job.
Very interesting article about why so much of the world's wealth is concentrated in countries located in temperate rather than tropical regions, and many have suggested that weather must play a part, but this is the first time that economic progress has been linked directly to frost.
No rest for the weary. Since making some major personnel changes last month, not having any time off is taking its toll. I'm dragging on a 13x7 schedule; it was nice having Thursdays off to sleep in and get personal stuff done. With the once a year 25% Off Fall Sale nearing its close, I'll be looking forward to the Daylight Savings time change and an extra hour to sleep in each morning. Okay, okay, I'll stop whining.
Yesterday, Thursday October 11th marks 30 days since the Massacre of Tuesday, September 11th, 2001; a lot's changed. Here's a recap. Memorials and moments of silence and prayer were held across America for the thousands of dead and injured. I paused for a moment, to remember them all.

Liberalism Is A Disease.
For years, I've ranted about how all liberals and many democRATs have undercut, deceived and ruined America and her Citizens. Their insidious brand of liberalism is really socialism and communism in disguise, plain and simple. It has caused the rapid degeneration and continuing decay of society's morals and family values. Deviancy and perversion is lauded over the Boy Scouts, abortion and infanticide are considered "women's rights", subhuman murderers have rights and victims and their families don't, suckerfish and crickets take precedence over human livelihoods, prayer and the Pledge of Allegiance are a no-no in public schools; I could go on and on. But I digress.
Bill Kaliher, an astute conservative contributing writer to The, has penned a must-read article called The Death of Liberalism: A Plan, which should be required reading for every Conservative and GOPer, of every stripe. Bill must have worked on it for some time; it's a masterpiece. Wish I could write that well.

September 11, 2001.
Read this: Rampant homoism and pedophilia in Islamic cultures between young boys and men; that might explain why Arabs in general, and the rump-raiding, fudge-packing Arab Islamic men in particular, are so f*cked up screwed up, angry and fanatical about their perverted, deviant gutter religion, Islam, and hate the US and Western Worlds.
I guess the American People are getting over the shock of the Massacre of Tuesday, September 11th, 2001; what else would explain this article?
Has the Massacre of Tuesday, September 11th, 2001 narrowed the racial divide in America? It'd sure be nice if it did, but I think lowlife race-baiting, misery-profiteering scum like Jesse Jack-scum and Al Sharp-scum wouldn't allow that to happen for very long; they'd be outta business and have to find real jobs.
Like TWA Flight 800 and 26 commercial airliners before, the Russians lost a passenger airliner to a missile. Should we be getting used to this by now?
I've always liked the Conservative Firebrand, Ann Coulter; her view on deportation is right inline with mine.
Is OKC connected to WTC? Read this by a US Congressman and decide for yourself. I already know.
Great article on the pork-sucking garbage Islam religion's terrorist network worldwide. The only thing that these lowlife subhuman diaperhead sandidiots would truly understand are nuclear weapons obliterating the Middle East cities by the dozens. I'd gladly push the requisite assons to start and finish the unholy war and send 'em all to Hell.
I don't know about you, but I'm beginning to believe that, after over 4 weeks from the Massacre of Tuesday, September 11th, 2001, it's gonna be a phony war, after all is said and said and said and said.
Two men, both billionaires. One develops relatively cheap software and gives hundreds of millions of dollars to charity. The other sponsors terrorism. That being the case, why is it that the US government has spent more time and money chasing down Bill Gates over the past years than Osama bin Laden?
Say what? Authorities are monitoring "known and suspected terrorists" with the same patterns as the subhuman towelhead scumbags who massacred 6,000+ innocents at the WTC and Pentagon, and they're doing nothing? Just watching? Why aren't they rounded-up, imprisoned and executed deported?
I was working on some landscape estimates on Sunday, helping customers select trees and schedule installations, when the news came across the TV — which I'd hurriedly bought on Tuesday, September 11th, to watch the WTC-Pentagon Massacre — that we'd started bombing the Islamic towelhead fanatics and extremists in Afghanistan. Bravo; it's about time we start sending as many of the filth to hell, where they belong. Kick ass, W. Take no prisoners.
whack the towel-diaperheaded, pork-sucking, pig-dog homo boy, angry from too much ass-f*cking rump-raiding, when he was a boy, bin Laden, the FBI says, or risk catastrophe. f*ck the towelhead subhuman garbage pig-f*ckers. I agre; let's whack him and as many of of the diaper-headed, towel-headed subhuman garbage, as we can. Millions upon millions.
A demand by the American Civil Communist Liberties Union that Breen Elementary School in Rocklin remove a "God Bless America" sign prompted angry parents, students and administrators to rally at the school Friday evening. Personally, I'd have been there with a Rent-A-Terrorist, to exterminate the ACLU and anyone who'd agreed with those commie-socialist-lib-dem-subhuman filth. There, all dead; problem solved. Can you say, "f*ck Screw you, ACLU?"
Hey US Gov't, use the hacker-crackers to our advantage, IF they can do the job and trace or destroy bin Laden's financial network. If they can't and it's a scam, imprison and execute them.
The US terror investigation that has hauled in hundreds of Middle Easterners is being conducted with closed court hearings and sealed documents on a scale legal experts say may be unprecedented. As part of what Attorney General John Ashcroft has called the biggest criminal investigation in US history, federal authorities have detained more than 500 people without releasing the paperwork that usually accompanies nearly any type of court proceeding. Bravo, I say: detain and imprison millions, if you need to. Whatever it takes to get the job done.
The bombings began Sunday around 1pm and were successful; W is riding a 92-94% approval rating. Kick ass, W. Wasre as much of the lowlife subhuman extremist Muslim towelhead filth as you can.
Day Two of the airstrikes continued, successfully.
Here's a towelhead website advocating Jihad, but nothing works; guess the FBI shut 'em down.
When W finds out who in the US Congress is leaking classified information to CNN, he ought to expose that person and bring treason charges against them. Disgusting scumbag.
Syria, one of seven countries Washington designates as a state sponsor of terrorism, was elected Monday as a non-permanent member of the UN Security Council? Huh? How f*cked screwed up is the UN for a stupid act like that?
The first biological terrorist attack — anthrax spores — is now documented in Boca Raton, FL, and requires a nuclear response. That's a WMD (Weapon of Mass Destruction) and its use demands a nuclear response against the country who initiated it. Waste the filthy Muslim shithole country, W.
Now, the second case of a biological terrorist attack — anthrax spores — is also documented at American Media Inc, in Boca Raton, FL; same as the first.
And a third. A nuclear response (WMD) is definitely called for.
Here's W's "hit list" of the 22 lowlife, pork-sucking, towelhead filth most wanted criminals.
Oh gee whiz, we're all quaking in our boots: the OIC (Organization Islamic Conference) is "warning the US" not to attack any more Muslim countries. My, my, my, aren't they going to be surprised when we obliterate Baghdad in Iraq, Damascus in Syria, Tripoli in Libya and Teheran in Iran? Those are four major terrorist-fomenting countries and we're going after them all. It's a war, folks; all's fair.
Sen. Dianne Feinstein, a notorious femi-Nazi-nag (NOW) and San Francisco liberal-socialist-communist, proposed yesterday that the National Guard be transformed into "a kind of homeland defense force" that would protect everything from airports to aqueducts. Well, of course the left-wing wacko slut does. She wants to nationalize the Nation, as Co-President Hitlery Rotten Clintoon tried to do, with "Hitlery-Care", the scam which would have nationalized 17% of the Nation's economy. Thanks Newt, wherever you are, for preventing that horror.
What the f*ck hell heck are these three towelheads doing in this Country speaking no English? Opening an emergency hatch on an airplane? Deport the filth, INS.
Last week's Journal was about Swiss Cheese Security; I wish this Walter Williams article had been out by then, to include it as a link. It wasn't, so I couldn't.

"Yes, But..."
The scum and filth of Canada are blaming the US for the terrorist attack, like this ugly subhuman Sunera Thobani femi-nazi lesbian slut. Here's hoping a raging case of ovarian cancer catches up with the lowlife real soon. And still more of the stupid Canucks blaming America. Well, here's one Canadian voice of reason in a "blame the US first".
Two major polls find that African-Americans are more likely than other racial groups to favor profiling and extra-thorough airport checks for Arabs and Arab-Americans. Surprised at the hypocrisy? Not me; blacks are loaded with it.
Hypocrisy also flows heavily from our so-called "allies" in the Middle East, notably the scumbag Saudis. Citing the US policy toward towelheads as the cause for the massacre, there were more than 5 Saudi scum among the 19 hijacker-murderers. What does that tell you? Volumes to me.

Lowlife lib-democRAT Scumbags.
Janet Reno — the lowlife alcoholic, coke-snorting, lesbian bitch, lying criminal — dismantled the InJustice Department’s Criminal Division, making it possible for terrorists to penetrate the United States. Now she has her sights set on being the next governor of the Sunshine State.
I'd imagine the lowlife, guilt-riddled, hand-wringing, bed-wetting liberals are dancing in the aisles about now, with Rush's announcement that he's going deaf. Hey Rush, that's what CC (Closed Captioning) is for; learn to read lips. I have a hearing loss, too. From very different reasons, but a hearing loss, nonetheless. And I'm coping. Get over it and move on.
I've always thought the so-called US Congress is populated with lowlifes, subhumans, criminals, degenerates, murderers, rapists and traitors. I was right. Natch.
I lay the Massacre of Tuesday, September 11th, 2001 right at the feet of the Clintoon-GoreBore criminals; they aborted air safety for campaign contributions. The changes to airline safety are still not implemented from the '96 recommendations, and the damming report is still unavailable for public consumption.
The disgraced, impeached, lying ex-president Bubba Jeffy Clintoon refused to recognize that we were at war; he did not alert the nation; he did not call us to arms; and he did not mobilize U.S. security forces to prepare the nation (or even the World Trade Center) for a defense against these attacks. Instead of crushing Arafat and Hamas and their comrade Osama Bin Laden, the Clintoon Administration forced the Israelis into the Oslo "peace process," which legitimized the terrorists, provided them with billions of US dollars in aid, and gave them an army with tens of thousands of weapons. Far from preparing America for the war it was already in, the Clinton Administration pretended we were at peace. It even acted as though America itself was the threat. Government security controls were removed on sales and transfers of high-tech instruments of war. Missile and satellite technologies and super computers were passed to China by the Clintoon Administration and, through China, to North Korea, Iran, Libya and Iraq. Through these transfers, the Clintoon Administration took away our military edge and disarmed our high-tech defenses. Ergo: the Massacre of Tuesday, September 11th, 2001.
After the 1993 World Trade Center bombing, which whacked six and injured 1,000, President Clintoon promised that those responsible would be hunted down and punished. After the 1995 bombing in Saudi Arabia, which whacked five U.S. military personnel, Clintoon promised that those responsible would be hunted down and punished. After the 1996 Khobar Towers bombing in Saudi Arabia, which whacked 19 and injured 200 U.S. military personnel, Clintoon promised that those responsible would be hunted down and punished.
After the 1998 bombing of U.S. embassies in Africa, which whacked 224 and injured 5,000, Clintoon promised that those responsible would be hunted down and punished. After the 2000 bombing of the USS Cole, which whacked 17 and injured 3 U.S.sailors, Clintoon promised that those responsible would be hunted down and punished. Maybe if Clintoon had kept his promise, an estimated 7,000 people would be alive today.
An interesting question: This question was raised on a Philly radio call-in show. Without casting stones, it is a legitimate question.There are two men, both extremely wealthy. One develops relatively cheap software and gives hundreds of millions of dollars to charity. The other sponsors terrorism. That being the case, why is it that the US government has spent more money chasing down Bill Gates over the past ten years than Osama bin Laden?
It is a strange turn of events. Hitlery Rotten Clintoon gets $8 Million for her forthcoming memoir. Bubba Jeffy Clintoon gets about $12 Million for his memoir. This from two people who have spent the past 8 years being unable to recall anything about past events. And America endured this shit for 8 horrible years, and will for another 6 for the Hitlery bitch's US Senate term.

Lowlifes and Other Scumfilth.
The Paula Poundstone Piggy is baaaaaaaaaaaaack! This time, the US Legal System, shocked and awakened by the Massacre of Tuesday, September 11th, 2001, did the right thing with lowlife, lib-dem, alcoholic lesbian filth, unfunny bitch. Prison would be the preferred prunishment; put the Poundstone Piglet in with the 450lb lesbian s in "The Blocks"; she'd never come out alive. And good riddance.

American Picture Palaces.
Seeking to add context to the history of American movie theaters, this site explores the evolution of the makeshift, storefront nickelodeon into the extravagant picture palace. From the consumer culture of the late 18th and early 19th century to the growing popularity of television and America's move to the suburbs in the '40s and '50s, the site offers a scholarly look at the social, economic, and technological forces that shaped the rise and fall of America’s picture palaces. Make sure to visit the "palace tours" sections of the site — they feature amazing photographs of some of the most majestic and excessive theaters from this period. As a kid back in the 50s, I can remember seeing movies in a few of these places.
