Soundings New Pool

Here are a couple of photos taken this past Thursday of the current progress at the The Soundings Resort on Cape Cod in Dennis Port for the construction of the new indoor pool and rest rooms. As shown, the new pool will be to the left of the former pool so that guests can walk straight through the lobby and  a path and entry through the new rooms under construction out to the outdoor pool and ocean. The former pool was "super well built" with tons of reinforcing rods in the concrete making it quite a project to remove.

Soundings Resort Lobby Flooring

 The Soundings Resort in Dennis Port just had their lobby floors refinished with new coatings of urethane to make them look like their original gleaming condition. The lobby floors are made of some sort of Brazilian hardwood with maple inserts to resemble a boat floor. The new carpet runner connects the front door to the lobby exit door towards the ocean. The "Compass Rose " insert is very helpful in giving directions so that everyone can determine the correct direction and has been a great success as no one has ever to date driven their car into the ocean by mistake.Everyone should have direction in their life and ideally proper direction.

De Plane! De Plane!. Where is The Plane?

What the heck happened to the missing Malaysia plane? It is sure a mystery so far. How can a plane simply be unaccounted for days on end? How can a plane be "off the radar"?  You would think there would be some indication by now as to whether this plane landed somewhere, crashed somewhere on land or sea, exploded in air or entered some type of "time warp" similar to the alleged "Bermuda triangle" or somehow entered a portal to a different dimension.Was this plane hijacked by a passenger or pilot, diverted to fly "under the radar"? Not to make light of the situation and hopefully there will be some sort of happy resolution to this mystery. I sometimes think of the "Fantasy Island" television show when thinking about planes when Ricardo Montalban  as Mr. Roarke would say "Places everyone" and HervĂ© Villechaize  as "Tattoo" his side kick would say, "De Plane, De Plane". What the heck do you think happened?

I Stand with Rand

Kentucky Senator Rand Paul won the recent "straw poll" of the CPAC (Conservative Political Action Conference) for the 2016 Presidential Race. This is something I agree with and I "Stand with Rand". It will be interesting to see how the "Main Stream Media" propaganda machine will try to tear down , distort and throw mud on Senator Paul's image and ideas. Jeff Kuhner of radio station WRKO in Boston this morning discussed his support for Senator Paul on his "Kuhner Country' radio show. I myself have thought since the 2012 election that I would support Senator Paul for the 2016 presidential election and will vote for him either as the nominee of the Republican party, as a third party candidate or as a "write in " vote.

In 2012 the "Main Stream media" played up the allegation that Mitt Romney cut some kid's hair when he himself was a kid and then later in life put the family dog on top of the roof of his car for some vacation trip. Now, these actions of course are so serious that we as a country could never elect Mitt president whereas Obama was an admitted cocaine user, "Chum gang ganga smoker" and as self confessed dog eater which of course are very minor issues compared with letting a dog get some fresh air.

Rand Paul, hopefully never did anything wrong in his life or we for sure will hear about it. Hopefully he never cut in line at the movie theater or dropped a piece of popcorn accidentally on the floor at the movies. A transgression like that I'm sure would preclude him from being president according to the media democratic "lap dogs". The media will try to portray Senator Paul as the "founder of the KKK' even though it was Southern Democrats who founded this organization. All the Republicans did was fight and die during the Civil War to end slavery. Prominent leaders such as Martin Luther King and baseball's Jackie Robinson were both Republicans as were most blacks until about the time of LBJ and his "Great Society" where the government cranked up the welfare handouts and created a government dependency which in many cases can be viewed as a new form of slavery.

Rand Paul will also be labeled as an "extreme right winger" who believes in crazy outlandish concepts as freedom, liberty, the rule of law, the United States Constitution, and a limited role for government. The governmental parasites and leeches will fight "tooth and nail" to defeat anyone who wishes to try to limit the power of government or the size and scope of government.

Rand Paul perhaps will consider Susana Martinez, governor of New Mexico, Nikki Haley, governor of South Carolina, or Bobby Jindal as his Vice Presidential running mate. I for one will not vote for Chris Christie (AKA "the Thin Man) if he were to become the republican nominee (I don't want him, you can have him, he's too fat for me.)

It will be interesting to see if old Hillary Clinton will try to run again for president in 2016. When the call came from Benghazi for support from our Libyan Consulate when under attack no help was offered. Oh well, "What difference does it make?" was her response.

Yes," I stand with and for Rand" in 2016. Where do you stand?

RSPECT Means Nothing to Me

Obama Misspells ‘Respect’ While Praising Franklin Before White House Concert « CBS DC  Are you "Rspected" in your daily life? President Obama in introducing Aretha Franklin said that Aretha sang
"RSPECT" on behalf of women and African Americans who just wanted a little respect in the lives. Now, I don't know which of the "57" states President Obama was speaking in or he probably was in the District of Columbia but I do know that "Ali G' (AKA Sasha Baron Cohen) spells the word (RESPEK) and lamented that there is so little of this that "respek" is not even in the dictionary anymore. I don't know if I respeck a president who doesn't even know how to spell the word. I mean, the next thing you know he will be spelling potatoe as "potato", something a bird brain (or Quayle brain) would do. Respectfully submitted: Mr. Rick Shaw

Ice Prints

  Photo of a frozen "coy pond" reminds me somewhat of a set of fingerprints. The ice whorls or swirls also somewhat look like what would happen if you "flash freeze" throwing a few pebbles into the pond with the frozen ripples. The dark shapes are similar to a "Rorschach test" and to me some of the dark shapes look like a few of the "enemy ships" in the movie "The Matrix".
