Joan Blondell 525 < Yeah, 5 o'clock somewhere - I'll drink to that; As he pours his 7th Gin & Tonic of the night, erh..early morning - Breakfast < yeah that it!
- I have it on good authority, it was Bob Marley not Jacob Marley, who visited Joan on Christmas 1979. He played his lead song, which put poor Joan into a panic, and lead to her death. Bob followed but a few 3 years later, two greats 1 of film the other of music, never to live again, but in our hearts.

I was going to make the usual comment about only knowing her from her role as the middle-aged housekeeper on My Three Sons but when I looked that reference up on IMDb, I got a cramp in my mouse wheel finger scanning down through every thing she'd been in. Prolific!
[Garowe] At least eight people have been confirmed dead in Mogadishu following a suicide explosion that targeted a convoy within the insecure capital, which has been witnessing several terrorism incidents in recent days.
Eyewitnesses said a jacket wallah driving in a car let 'er rip along the 21st October streets in Waberi district of the capital, just near the busy Aden Adde International Airport, further raising questions about the security of the capital.
Sources claimed the bomber targeted a convoy of "white officials" but their identity is yet to be established. There are several aid workers from foreign countries in Somalia, with some also attached to diplomatic missions.
The al-Shabaab ...... the personification of Somali state failure... terror group has grabbed credit adding that it targeted some "foreigners". The group further said it achieved the target according to its proxy media outlets, which often announce such attacks.
Tens of others were critically injured and have since been taken to various hospitals within the capital for treatment. This is the first major attack by the Lions of Islam this year in the troubled Horn of Africa nation.
Mogadishu resident Mohammed Osman said the shock of the blast hit the walls and roof of a mosque he was praying in nearby, causing massive damage that "I have never seen in my life". It's not clear if the convoy was headed to the airport.
"When I came out of the mosque, I saw several old houses collapsed, body parts on the street, hands, legs," Osman told Rooters. "Destroyed cars, burnt Tuk-tuks (rickshaws); all this mess and loss of lives in a minute, I survived."
The Lions of Islam still control huge swathes of rural central and southern Somalia and have killed thousands of people including innocent civilians, security forces, and government officials. The Lions of Islam were flushed out of the capital in 2007.
Currently, there are talks to have African Union ...a union consisting of 53 African states, most run by dictators of one flavor or another. The only all-African state not in the AU is Morocco. Established in 2002, the AU is the successor to the Organisation of African Unity (OAU), which was even less successful... Mission having a joint mission with the United Nations ...an organization conceived in the belief that we're just one big happy world, with the sort of results you'd expect from such nonsense... in Somalia. The current tenure for AMISOM is set to expire in March this year and there are concerns that al-Shabaab can spread wings further in the country.
A large explosion outside the international airport in Somalia's capital killed at least eight people and wounded nine others on Wednesday, a local doctor said.
Dr. Abdulkadir Adam with Medina hospital shared the toll with The Associated Press. Witnesses at the scene said a passing U.N. convoy appeared to be the target in the Mogadishu blast near a checkpoint leading to the heavily fortified airport.

[REGNUM] Over 200 Iran's Houthi sock puppets ...a Zaidi Shia insurgent group operating in Yemen. They have also been referred to as the Believing Youth.

The legitimate Yemeni government has accused the them of having ties to the Iranian government. Honest they did. The group has managed to gain control over all of Saada Governorate and parts of Amran, Al Jawf and Hajjah Governorates. Its slogan is God is Great, Death to America™, Death to Israel, a curse on the Jews They like shooting off... ummm... missiles that they would have us believe they make at home in their basements. On the plus side, they did murder Ali Abdullah Saleh, which was the only way the country was ever going to be rid of him... rebels (Ansar Allah movement) were killed in one day in Yemen ...an area of the Arabian Peninsula sometimes mistaken for a country. It is populated by more antagonistic tribes and factions than you can keep track of... as a result of the actions of the Arabian coalition led by Saudi Arabia ...a kingdom taking up the bulk of the Arabian peninsula. Its primary economic activity involves exporting oil and soaking Islamic rubes on the annual hajj pilgrimage. The country supports a large number of princes in whatcha might call princely splendor. Fifteen of the nineteen WTC hijackers were Saudis, and most major jihadi commanders were Saudis, to include Osama bin Laden. Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman quietly folded that tent in 2016, doing terrible things to the guys running it, and has since been dragging the kingdom into the current century... . Al Jazeera TV channel reported this on January 12 with reference to a representative of the alliance.
According to him, the coalition was able to conduct 17 operations on the territory of the republic in the Yemeni province of Marib, where 90 Houthis were eliminated, as well as 16 attacks in the province of El-Beida. In the second region, Arabian forces killed more than 110 Death Eaters.
As reported by IA REGNUM , earlier the al-Masirah TV channel broadcast that the Houthis declared their readiness to stop the offensive of the government army and the Arabian coalition forces in the south of Yemen. A front man for the Ansar Allah movement claims that the rebels have killed at least 515 Emirati mercenaries.
[THEPOSTMILLENNIAL] In response to Portland ...a formerly lovely city in Oregon, governed by an unholy alliance of communists, anarchists, and incompetents.

"On 8/22 PPB chose to not engage. They later announced that they'd make arrests in due time. Tiny's arrest, if related to that day, may be the start of follow through," the group wrote. "If so, I think we'd be wise to consider that fash might not be the only ones going down for that event."
"If you were there that day & haven't burned your bloc yet, or deleted your comms, now would be the time to do so. As well tighten up on any other loose ends, OpSec or otherwise, which may be used to incriminate you," they continued.
"As of Sept 1st of last year, according to the previously attached article, PPB was interested in 6 people associated with 8/22, half of whom are presumed to be antifascist ...anybody you disagree with, damn them... s," they added.

The police’s Hate Crime Task Force said it charged Othman Suleiman with third degree assault and aggravated assault, and listed both charges as suspected hate crimes.
