Comedian Bernie Mac dies of pneumonia


FoxNews is reporting the death of actor-comedian Bernie Mac, 50, who died suddenly today of complications from pneumonia.  “Sarcoidosis”, a lung condition is given as the possible cause of death.

Rumors of Mr. Mac’s death have been circulating on the internet for several days, with refutations coming from his publicist and other sources.

The comic born Bernard Jeffrey McCullough could cut an imposing figure. He stood 6-foot-3, was built like a fullback and carried himself with a bouncer’s reticence. But perhaps the strongest weapon in the Chicago comedian’s arsenal was that voice, that amalgam of thought and a delivery that could rise like a tidal wave, outpace a Gatling gun and remained, to his last days, loud and unapologetic.

He wasn’t scared, he told us time and again, to tell anyone what he thought, to say what others were afraid to say. That fearlessness wasn’t always welcome, considering Mac didn’t get his big break until his 30s. But when he did, the comic skyrocketed to success in stand-up, television and the big screen.

Shopping Spree…what’s in your emergency kit part 4

My latest adventure in on-line shopping landed me several items that will come in handy at the camp-house/retreat.
First up, from Home, a couple of fine kerosene heaters.

Next, from St. Paul Mercantile, several items that are bundled together for a nice price savings, including a stove, oven, and lanterns, all powered by kerosene, a portable SW radio,spare parts, and last but not least, a very cool water filtration system.

This kind of shopping has caused Mrs. Nuke to chuckle more than once. I told y’all earlier about my greenhouse, and her reply that “at least it’s cheaper than a sports car.”

He Hee.

So, now she’s asking me, “But Honey, do we really need 500 gallons of kerosene?”

Hope y’all have a great weekend.
