“The 500!” The Movie? No! The Blog!

A representative sampling of my followers.#

After four months of blogging…a milestone of sorts. You see, about three and a half months ago, somebody who was a blog stalker of sorts unfollowed me with a vengeance.

Must have been something I said in a reply to one of her comments. At the time I had less than 30 followers. Her final words were basically:

Nobody wants to follow you because you are mean, negative and stupid!

Well! I must have a lot of mean, negative, stupid followers!

Whoever or whatever you are, thanks for following me and your likes and encouraging comments!

NOTE: # Yes! Most of my followers are AI EMOJIs!

Yes! What’s it all about, Postie!? Is it just for the ‘likes’ that you live?🎼🎷🎹

Only the Shadow Really Knows!

When someone asks a question in a post reply, I sometimes quip, “Only The Shadow Knows!

What does that mean, anyway!?


The Shadow is the name of a collection of serialized dramas, originally in 1930s pulp novels, and then in a wide variety of Shadow media. One of the most famous adventure heroes of 20th century North America, The Shadow has been featured on the radio, in a long-running pulp magazine series, in American comic books, comic strips, television, serials, video games, and at least five feature films. The radio drama included episodes voiced by Orson Welles.

Today, The Shadow assumes various identities for his crime fighting work, most notably that perpetrated on the Internet!


Yes! All’s well and good what you have said. But again, what does The Shadow Know!?



Only The Shadow Really KNOWS!

Eat Your Cake and Have It Too!


Isn’t the expression,

Have your cake and eat it too?

Or in the hood

You can’t have your cake and eat it too!

Are you the Unabomber# who was tracked down based partly on his misquote of this quote!?

The Meaning of the expression:

Well. To do or get two good things at the same time, especially things that are not usually possible to have together: 

I worked at home so I could raise my family and still earn money.
I guess I wanted to have my cake and eat it too. But in my case, I did eat my cake and have it too!
# Unabomber: Theodore John Kaczynski, also known as the Unabomber, was an American domestic terrorist, former mathematics professor, and anarchist author. A mathematics prodigy, he abandoned an academic career in 1969 to pursue a primitive lifestyle. Between 1978 and 1995, he killed three people and injured 23 others in an attempt to start a revolution by conducting a nationwide bombing campaign targeting people involved with modern technology. In conjunction, he issued a social critique opposing industrialization while advocating a nature-centered form of anarchism.
The bombs were sent through the mail. You just don’t mess with the U.S.Postal Service and expect to get away with it!
