Chart Topper

Colonel’s Blog, Earthdate 25 August 2023…

Hey Y’all!

Good evening and happy Fast-Jet Friday!! The pic today is the Mighty-Mighty F-15E Strike Eagle performing an unrestricted climb during takeoff this past week from RAF Lakenheath, England. You guessed it, the weather is hot. Tomorrow is going to be a bit better and then Sunday the high will be in the 70s. The animals are all doing well with nothing significant to report. We purchased tickets to attend the Ozarks Homesteading Expo today and tomorrow. It is about an hour and fifteen minutes from here at a fairground. During our morning staff meeting, we decided that we didn’t want to endure the 115 degree heat index with a few thousand people sitting around tents at the fairground, so we hung out here. I spent some time with the weed-eater in the garden trying to get some of the grass under control. Even by mid-morning it was oppressively hot and it was time for a shower. We are going to skip the expo tomorrow also and go to the farmers market. We really enjoy hanging out with folks, especially our recurring customers.

I’ve really enjoyed the AI discussions but am going to take a break from it in the blog. I’ll throw an update at you if I see something really cool or important. An unrelated story that I think is pretty cool is that a gentleman just had a song debut at #1 on the Billboard Top 100 chart without any prior chart history, ever. That has NEVER happened before. Oliver Anthony’s “Rich Men North of Richmond” seems to be in tune with the sentiment in the country right now. I can tell you that around here, from the conversations we have every week, folks are not happy and do not trust the government. If our local area is any indication of the overall sentiment in the nation, it shouldn’t be surprising that the song rocketed to the top. If you haven’t heard it, I recommend you listen. I think you will see why it is resonating with folks.

Ex President and Ex network commentator hit it out of the park with 257 million views, Oliver Anthony came up with a radical right wing anthem according to the media and

“Am I The Only One” by Aaron Lewis (another shameless plug)asking a question that I think is being answered right now. Good times.

P.S. Tom MacDonald been killing it for a while with some booming tracks. Million views in 10 hours today.

We the people are pissed!
