Brattleboro Selects BFD For Trash Collection

The Town of Brattleboro received four bids for the new trash collection and recycling service. At Tuesday’s meeting, the Selectboard chose the Brattleboro Fire Department to do the job.

In a close vote Tuesday, Brattleboro Representative Town Meeting representatives have decided to add a new layer to town government in what will surely represent a new era in governing the municipality.

Brattleboro Town Manager Statement on COVID-19 Rumors

I have been advised this morning that some rumors of significant COVID-19 impacts are circulating in Brattleboro.  Examples include “hospital staff have been instructed not to report to work” and “police officers are wearing masks whenever they are in public.”  These rumors are not true.  Please continue to monitor the situation on the Vermont Health Department’s website at  Please also continue to encourage members of the public to use that Health Department site as their source of reliable information about COVID-19 in Vermont.  The link to that site remains posted in the “News” section on the right side of the Town’s homepage.  The Health Department is updating the site at least daily and some days it is updated multiple times.

Extraterrestrial Life

The universe holds an enormous number of planets having conditions capable of supporting life. It’s mathematically more probable that some actually do have life than it is that humanity is the only one. Such life may or may not resemble us.

Here on Earth, life proliferates from the deepest depths of the oceans to the highest mountain peaks; from the icy poles to the hottest, dryest deserts. There’s life everywhere. However, high probability does not equal certainty, but its close.

Long Live The King!

The rumors are flying already:

1. Epstein is alive and well and living in Patagonia.

Conspiracy Theory – Elites

What you have to understand is that sometimes there are forces and events too big, too powerful, with so much at stake for other people or institutions, that you cannot do anything about them, not matter how evil or wrong they are and no matter how dedicated or sincere you are or how much evidence you have. That is simply one of the hard facts of life you have to face.

Moon Shot Anomaly

Cernan is standing next to a large rock outcropping with a small instrument sitting on the dusty lunar surface in front of him.
Attached are some close-ups:

Pictures of Bush?

Today, a friend sent me a set of photos taken on the day of President Kennedy’s assassination. I have seen them before.

The pictures depict the Texas Book Depository, and purport to show GHW Bush standing in front.


From the intro to “Armageddon”, a 1998 science fiction disaster film:

“At a time when the dinosaurs roamed a lush and fertile planet, a piece of rock just six miles wide changed all that.

It hit with the force of 10.000 nuclear weapons.

New Hat

I just got a new “Tinfoil Hat” and I’m itching to try it out. The Las Vegas incident seems like an ideal opportunity.
