    Body shop

    Need some minor body work done. Would like to stay away from dealer owned shops. Anyone got someone they think highly of? Thanks in advance.

    Just one of my favorite music video's and more.

    Two great tunes here also. Poncho and Lefty was written by Townes van Zandt - great singer songwriter who met an early demise.

    Whoa, great remake of an old Flying Burrito Brothers tune. I had never heard of her - I’ll definitely check out other stuff by her. Thanks for this one.

    The Pour House restaurant on Watson Blvd

    Stopped for Lunch Tuesday- it was very good. Should be a great new addition to the area’s restaurant scene.

    Over Reaction at SUNY

    An incorrect fact is not an “opinion”. It is simply incorrect. The current state of the art in terms of gender identification is exactly as m_sable describes I.e. both gender identity and sexual preference seem connected to timing of exposure to hormones during the prenatal period. It is confusing and there appear to be some environmental factors at play also. The DSM diagnostic info was changed because the DSM is based on the best science available. Our tools for understanding issues like this have improved markedly. The XY chromosome info is correct as far as it goes, but like many things in life it doesn’t reflect the full complexity of the human experience. Kind of like folks who believe that auto insurance rate are based solely on your history of speeding tickets.

    Spectrum planning to drop 23 channels

    I have switched to Directv now - the streaming version of directv (no dish). I use an antenna for local channels. The service includes access to network apps for most networks in your package. It’s not perfect but overall has been a good move. If there were choices for internet providers I’d dump spectrum entirely.

    Why Are We On BCVOICE?

    As long as we are doing Intro to Psychology, let’s try the ultimate attribution error. From Wikipedia: Ultimate attribution error is the tendency to internally attribute negative outgroup and positive ingroup behaviour and to externally attribute positive outgroup and negative ingroup behaviour. So in other words, ultimate attribution error arises as a way to explain an outgroup's negative behaviour as flaws in their personality, and to explain an outgroup's positive behaviour as a result of chance or circumstance. It is also the belief that positive acts performed by ingroup members are as a result of their personality, whereas, if an ingroup member behaves negatively (which is believed to be rare), it is a result of situational factors. For ease of example, Ingroup can be those of your political persuasion, out group are the “others”. They do bad stuff because they’re evil, we do bad because the situation pushes us to it. We do good stuff cuz we’re good people, they do good stuff cuz we held them accountable. The findings hold for other groups, such as race, religion, immigrant vs citizen, etc. Once you begin looking at posts with this framework, it becomes amazingly apparent. It’s a really fun game to play and happens whether you believe in it or not. Psychology 101 in your life...

    Trump is right, yet again.

    Not to hijack the thread, but I just watched the Ken Burns documentary about Vietnam and had a similar reaction. I knew much of what went on during the 60’s and early 70’s but had huge gaps in my knowledge either by having missed info (my priorities were WAY different then!), different focus in how Ilearned about it, or outright miseducation. The parallels to today were striking, which was both depressing and at the same time comforting. I would recommend the series without hesitation, despite the 18 hour investment required. I heard it said that history may not repeat, but it sure rhymes.
  9. Its amazing how many things I am aware of from childhood. I was a faithful fan of this show. Ill have to read the book. https://youtu.be/ADesK3Wa_D0

    RIP Tom Petty, I'm not kidding, CBS reports

    I’m a bit foggy on this but I’m pretty sure the one I saw had Paul Carrack of Squeeze and Nick Lowe as the warmup. One thing for sure, They were smokin hot!

    Thanks! Is there a trick? I don’t see an option to do that (I’m on an iPad so I may not have all of the options of a PC).

    RIP Tom Petty, I'm not kidding, CBS reports

    I saw him a couple of decades ago. I didn’t know much about him at the time. The warmup band was really good and I wondered if they were stealing the show. Tom Petty came out and totally killed that idea. From the second he took the stage, there was no question who was the star of this show - and why! I’ve been a convert ever since. RIP Tom Petty...

    Trump is right, yet again.

    Sorry, I hear and understand your concerns about deep states, globalists, and others ancestry. I see it as proof of mission accomplished, although that may be giving too much credit to social media. We will just have to agree to disagree on this one.

    Trump is right, yet again.

    This is way bigger than slanted coverage of one election. It’s not about Trump. It’s about disrupting a nation’s faith in their institutions, and it’s working. From the Washington post: The roster of figures who have signed onto the new project, called the Alliance for Securing Democracy, is a who’s who of former senior national security officials from both parties. The advisory council includes former Homeland Security secretary Michael Chertoff; former acting CIA director Michael Morell; former House Intelligence Committee chairman Mike Rogers; Adm. James Stavridis, former NATO supreme Allied commander, Europe; Jake Sullivan, former national security adviser to Joe Biden; and former Estonian president Toomas Hendrik Ilves. The project will be housed at the German Marshall Fund (GMF) and will be run day to day by a staff led by Laura Rosenberger, a former senior State Department official in the Obama administration, and Jamie Fly, former national security counselor to Sen. Marco Rubio (R-Fla.)
