Woke up to this today and it really bummed me out. Had been praying that Phil would recover from his stroke but I guess that wasn’t in God’s plans for him.

The Deadliest Catch is a terrific show and a huge reason why is Captain Phil. He was just a straight up down to earth guy and I loved watching the interaction between him and his sons.

RIP Phil…You will be missed by a lot of people including me and my family

"It is with great sadness that we say goodbye to our dad – Captain Phil Harris. Dad has always been a fighter and continued to be until the end," sons Josh and Jake Harris said in a statement released by the network. "For us and the crew, he was someone who never backed down."
In a statement, Discovery Channel senior vice president Elizabeth Hillman says, "Phil was a devoted father and loyal friend to all who knew him." "We will miss his straightforward honesty, wicked sense of humor and enormous heart," she said.

To steal phrase from Rush: My favorite President the great Ronaldus Maximis would have been 99 today and God knows we could use the Gipper now.

Happy Birthday to Elvis – Jan. 8th 1935

Posted in Music on January 8, 2010 by frankenstrat

Today, January 8th is the King’s birthday so happy birthday Elvis! Hard to fathom he was born in 1935 and would have been 75 if he had lived! Unreal…

I’ve always been a huge fan due in no small part to my parents playing his records from the day I was born. Even watched his Aloha from Hawaii TV special when I was 5. I really like almost all of his music but my favorite I think will always be…

I posted this last year and all but a few things hold true.
I still love Rush and just listened to his annual Thanksgiving story today.

What’s changed from last year is we did have another terrorist attack on US soil, Fort Hood, my mom is in town this year & both my in-laws went to Florida so hope they have a great time.

As for everyone else hope you have a great turkey day, know I will!

Reagan’s historic Berlin wall speech

Posted in Politics on November 10, 2009 by frankenstrat

The great Ronaldus Maximus giving one of his best speeches. Pity the current crop of ‘world leaders’ and state run media don’t give Ronnie his due for the part he played in the wall coming down.  But we lived through it and know how it really went down.
