Some members still have a profile photo wearing a mask. Most places have dropped the mask requirements.

Formed in 1969, Lynyrd Skynyrd had gone through changes over the years but Gary had been the last surviving member of the original lineup.

News via Facebook said he passed away at the age of 71 and now he's in heaven playing with his Skynyrd brothers.

Let the smears begin...

An upcoming election and DeSantis is leading Trump in the polls for Republican front runner. Today's news has the kettle calling the pot black with Trump posting a photo of the Young DeSantis as a teacher partying with his students. Reader comments thought it was a funny smear as Trump was known for the same activity.
The important thing is actually getting Republicans to actually have Trump win the primary. In my recent blog the Koch brothers are supporting the 'NeverTrump' movement in an effort to deny him the republican party nomination. Donald may smear himself off the the vote.
Who knows, there's always time to create his own party and lose the support of the Republicans.

Drone ON...

For years, I've been reading about Amazon making deliveries by drone. for the record, it's not perfected yet. Good idea or not, something on a large scale must get the approval of the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) which is the same government agency that hasn't allowed flying cars. Remember those?
I'm reading some drone companies have plane-like aircraft that drop their cargo from 10 to 12 feet and not land to release the package. Tell that to your Rolex vendor.

People who make flying cars often depict someone stuck in traffic and like a transformer, opening wings and taking to the sky. Read my lips: It ain't happening.
Airplanes (real or converted cars) have to get approval from a flight tower and have a prescribed flight plan... with the exception of a crop duster in Kansas, they all have to be 'on the radar' and takeoff and land from a runway. That includes manned drones.

While Amazon drones have great merit, you cannot fill the sky with drones dropping $200 Yeazy sneakers across town. What are they good for? In my opinion, special emergency authorization like a 20 minute direct flight transporting a heart (on ice) to a hospital 50 miles away where an ambulance transport could be more than one hour getting through one busy city to another busy city. Just like an ambulance helicopter transport, a designated heli-pad is where the package would be received. Logically, there would need to be a fast charge station for the return flight.

I am here a few times a week and find some new members using stolen photos of models. What do I do? Report them as fraud. But, they are not removed. I find this frustrating as they are here to deceive the other members.

I have reported one fake a few times but the profile is active.

To the THAI woman who looks at my profile daily...

More than two years ago, a young woman from Thailand would look at my profile every day. Some of you guys may remember. Her profile only had one photo and she was wearing mirrored sunglasses.
Last year, she added a second photo, but eventually, she faded away and I didn't see her looking at my profile.
Not to worry. Another young woman from Thailand took her place. Like clockwork, she was there every day and sometimes adding me to her hot list.

She faded away too and a new young woman from Thailand took over doing the same thing as the other two.

Is this a coincidence?
Are they scammers working together?
