Early Warning

Good Morning.

We've hit the busy part of the season here at ol' Trolley Shop. A year ago, I was a newly-minted conductor, making my way through my first month giving tours and managing the crowds.

Being new to the industry, I had no "history" and just plowed along, trying to make sense of it all as we went through the ebb and flow of a typical tourism year in this city.

For What its Worth Friday

I don't listen to commercial music radio that much. So I have no idea what the kids are listening to to stoke the fires of revolution in their hearts. Here, however, are some older songs from various genre's and decades that speak to a message of change.

I can't write about it today.

I have not and will not give up, but today, please forgive me, I can't.

These are horribly dark times. Don't give up. They want you to give up. Don't give up.

What a GREAT Time to be Alive!
Author: velveeta jones    Date: 06/17/2018 16:52:24

Congrats to everyone for living during this exciting time period! Look at how we are making America Great Again, from crying over raccoons scaling tall buildings to the sweet, sweet sounds of little children ripped from their parents! Oh, and a happy Fathers day to them. (As well as to our President).

Still Alive

Good Morning.

This past week, a childhood friend of mine lost her husband to the "Big C". She was the youngest of our 'posse' in those days - the baby sister of my then best friend, and the youngest one in the neighborhood.

She's perhaps the most serendipitous of those Facebook connections. I saw her name pop up in a feed belonging to one of my Scouter friends in another city. I wasn't sure it was her, but then I saw her brother on the mutual friend list. Cornering my scouter friend, I discovered that they were next door neighbors. Of all things.

Holy Crap this has been a epic week of, well, crap. Take a breather for a tiny kitten cam or puppies, or whatever other cam you find that brings you a bit of joy this Friday.

To Hell in a Handbasket
Author: BobR    Date: 06/14/2018 14:37:50

We have a common saying around here that every day seems like a week and every week seems like a month with this administration. This past week has been no different. Every day seems like the country is descending further into a fascist dictatorship, as congressional Republicans seem content to let tRump freely trample on everything this country has stood for. There are 3 major areas that have dominated my conscious observations.

The G-7 summit is supposed to be easy. We get together with our allies and discuss how to move trading and human rights forward for everyone. The occupant of the White House seems to take a special joy in pissing in everyone's corn flakes, and so he called for punitive tariffs on all of them. Once there (showing up late, of course), he warned them all not to retaliate. Of course they will, and Canada said so after tRump had ducked out early. Naturally, tRump had some nasty words for Trudeau and Canada, our longest and closest ally. To add a moldy cherry to the rancid whipped cream on top of the shit sundae, he called for Russia to be added back into the G-7, seemingly completely unaware as to why they were booted out in the first place.
