BARR AND 1918
You of course saw that even Barr has now put the lie to Trump’s constant assertions of election fraud.

Not to be missed.
“Trump is bragging about the Dow Jones topping 30,000, which only happened after it was clear he wasn’t going to be president anymore.” — Middle Age Riot
I remember when the Dow briefly crossed 1,000 in 1966 before dropping back. It would be 16 years before crossing it again.
Not to say it will be 16 years before the Dow again crosses 30,000 — it could be this morning.
But don’t think it’s impossible.

This 90-minute event last night featured planetary hero Mark Plotkin, co-founder of the Amazon Conservation Team, discussing everything from shamans to mapping 80 million acres of rain forest . . . from wine (a popular plant-based drug) to the time he was bitten by a vampire bat.

A celebrity you’d instantly recognize lives upstairs from me. He has a beautiful wife. I gave her a box of French Royal. She left me this note: “As a person who has now smeared myself with the products, I can vouch for them as luscious. Thank you. Luxury feels extra-wonderful this year.”
Step right up, dear reader, if you’re looking for an extravagant holiday gift, and make me rich.
Independent studies of BrainHQ have shown many positive results for older drivers, including: 38% fewer dangerous driving maneuvers, faster reaction time (equivalent to 22 feet more stopping distance at 55 mph), greater confidence driving in difficult conditions, 48% fewer at-fault crashes, 30% lower overall crash incidence, and maintaining safe driving later in life.
Drivers insured by AAA in many states can get Drivesharp training from BrainHQ through their insurer without charge and can receive a discount on their premium.
In other words, AAA is so confident in its effectiveness, they will pay you to use BrainHQ.
It also reduces the incidence of dementia and makes you a better SuperBowl quarterback.
The perfect holiday gift for anyone “of a certain age” (Tom Brady is 43) . . . or who will one day be a certain age.
