Back To Hollywood



  Good morning folks on this snowy (yes, it IS snowing right now and I have to go to work today) Monday, February morning.  This is the kind of day I yearn to be back in Hollywood.  We (me and my Canadian Travel Buddy) Pat visit Hollywood every January, but only for ten days.  I'm trying to talk Pat into staying longer than the ten days we stay but after ten days with my I tend to become annoying.  Hey folks, that me.  Only one person can stand me longer and that's my hubby Bill.  Perhaps that's why we've been together lo these 52 years.  But Bill doesn't like to travel, hence my Travel Buddy.  

This morning I was going to do my rant on the death of the Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia and the Republicans decision that our president (that would be president Obama) is only a three year president and thus unqualified to name a replacement to the Supreme Court.  Of course the president is adhering to the Constitution, which the Republican as so fond of spouting all the time except when the Constitution interfere with their nefarious plans to take over this country.  They says "let the people decided" and wait until the next election is over.  Uh, didn't "the people" already decide when they elected Barack Obama? Well, seems like I'm ranting anyway doesn't it?  

So I decided not to post one of those "rant" posts and instead post something that will bring a smile to your face.  Here is another video I took of that Giant Tourist Mecca at Hollywood and Vine.  Man oh man, was that ever an experience.  I tried to capture the Flavor of the Moment, including Brad Pitt who was disguised as a homeless person.  


Oh that's Brad Pitt. You can't fool me Brad!  I know you change your hairdo all the time and do research. 
My apologies for scanning the taping so fast, I get nervous when I'm in a crowd.  I don't want anyone confronted me for taking their picture without their permission.  But I have to admit the only time I've encountered that problem is with police (who almost always will confront you and I HAVE been confronted - what are they worried about anyway?) and, occasionally someone who has outstanding arrest warrants (how am I supposed to know)?  Oh, and the other folks who are nervous about me taking their picture are the Mexicans who help me with my yard work in the spring and summer.  Gee, I wonder what that is ALL about?  So, I am sorry for the Quick Scan.  I'll try to slow it down a bit next year.  Hey, wait until you see my video of our ride through Beverly Hills.

    1. Thank you Dr. Spo, but I don't have the temperament to be a judge. I'm too immature, even though I am an OLD man now. I'll always be immature but you know what? I am what I am and I am not ashamed nor do I offer apologies. At this time of my life I have accepted myself for who I am.

  2. Thanks for the visuals (only) of H'wood, Ron.
    I am NOT a fan of Adele and can't understand why half the world is. I keep wondering if she'd be noticed as much if she didn't wear her 'embonpoint' so freely (and that I DO approve of) - but in this case for me, at least, the absence of sound was a 'plus'.

    Re: the late Justice Scaley (or whatever it is he's called) - is it not the case that your Supreme Court is decreed (by God, no less!) to have an eternal conservative majority. At least that's the impression I've been getting. So it seems to me that the Republicans' demand that that a new appointment should be delayed until November or later is eminently reasonable. (I do jest, of course, in case you were wondering).

      The Republicans want to "give the people a choice". LOL. Gee, I thought "the people" already made a choice when they elected Barrack Obama as president, who incidentally will be president for another eleven months. Their stand on refusing to even give President Obama's nominee a Senate hearing will backfire on them. The irony here is that the Republicans are all about "the Constitution" until implementing the law of the Constitution affects their right wing agenda.
