Mondays, what can you say?





SAN FRANCISCO (KGO) -- A glass window was seen falling from a building Tuesday as wind gusts intensified in the Financial District of San Francisco. 

The glass window that broke fell from the 555 California Street building, formerly the Bank of America Center.


I never have felt comfortable walking in the Financial District the few times I've been in the area for that reason - glass falling, not from winds but from an earthquake, which San Francisco has been known to have on occasion.

Good Morning


When you fill the wrong hole

Civil lawsuits filed on behalf of at least eight individuals with sexual assault claims against David Webb, a former Vacaville oral surgeon, went before a judge in Solano County Monday for a case management conference.

I'd be ducking my head too


Ew ew ew

During the dog days of summer, there’s just nothing quite like cracking open an ice-cold adult beverage to beat the sweltering heat. If you’re under the age of 21, the closest you can (legally) get to that feeling is opening up the fridge and grabbing a refreshing popsicle. 

But what if you could have the best of both worlds? That’s exactly what Coors Light is hoping to accomplish.

No more sorrow, no more pain

"Here, he's your problem now"

The unresponsive man was pronounced dead at Legacy Salmon Creek Medical Center, the sheriff’s office said. Officials said they were waiting to release the man’s name pending notification of his family. They didn’t say if or how he had been injured.

See, most of us learn at an early age that you don't play with guns

CHATTANOOGA, Tenn. — Chattanooga Police Department officers arrested a Walden Security Guard after they say he accidentally shot another guard at Erlanger Hospital on Friday.

Police say Ryan Howard and Jayce Jenkins were security guards working a shift at Erlanger Hospital on Friday night.

Detectives learned the two were "joking around" and calling each other names. That's when Jenkins stood up and pointed the firearm toward Howard's leg.

Burn baby burn

That's the steel hat I was issued. I don't know how old mine was, but I do know it was Vietnam era or earlier seeing as I could vaguely see where somebody scratched their name and a serial number starting with RA, meaning Regular Army, on the inside. I went into the army in 1978 and by that time we used our Social Security numbers rather than a serial number.

I was issued the damned thing but I rarely wore it seeing as I wasn't in a combat arms unit.
The only times I wore it was when we had an alert - we'd throw on our web gear and steel hats, draw our weapons and go to the motor pool to our vehicles where we immediately took them off and sat on them or chucked them into the backs of our trucks while waiting on the word to either move out or more often than not, fall out to the barracks and make formation to start our regular work day.
Even when we went to the field we didn't wear the damned things. I usually wore a pile cap or sometimes a soft cap. The helmets were hung above our cots and used as a basin for shaving or to take a whore's bath with.

Tennessee bill would stop business owners from prohibiting firearms on their property

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WZTV) — Republican lawmakers are examining more legislation that loosens restrictions on carrying firearms in Tennessee. 

SB1037/HB0746 would remove authorization for business owners to prohibit people from bringing guns on their property—and eliminate the criminal offense for those who carry.


Good, I'm glad.
At least a couple times a month I read on the Nashville news sites about how 'dangerous guns' get out on the street because the owners leave them in their vehicles which are then broken into.
Um, maybe if these folks were allowed to keep their guns on them while they conduct their daily business, y'all wouldn't have that problem, now would you?

The shit I would've posted on Facebook
