TMI Tuesday.....

A Mr. Joseph Montana from South Bend Indiana asks.."Dear Mr. Knowitall, You just don't hear of people finding images of The Virgin Mary on Grilled Cheese sandwiches anymore. Do you know why? And can you share any Signs from Heaven that I may have missed?"
Dear Joe...Of course I can!
It seems that JC himself is making more Cameo appearances than his Mom these days, and even though he occasionally pops up (pardon the pun) on a piece of toast now and then. His food canvas of choice appears to be The Tortilla! Now thats not to say that you won't find his smiling face on a Latte swirl, or a gob of Marmite, but the next time you order a Burrito, look closely, you may be eating the worlds largest Communion Host.
Good Question Joe...Thanks!
Mr. Knowitall has been quite busy these last few days and grows very weary. And I apologize for being a bit remiss in my visiting fellow Blog Peeps. But work has been crazy, and the days are getting shorter. Thank You one and all for visiting me, I really appreciate it.

Even years after their break-up, it still irks me that Frickin BILLY BOB THORNTON was tappin Angelina Jolie!!!
He must have some sort of "deformity"...if you catch my drift.

Retro One Shot.....

Apples, Hot Dogs, Hot Chocolate, Cider...
Autumnal aromas trigger a nostalgic Time Warp.
Burning leaves rekindle memories of an exciting... turbulent time!
Hell NO...We won't go!
We wanted to make Love...Not War!
We were Young
We were Idealistic
We could make a Difference!
All we were saying, was give Peace a Chance.
Tune In, Turn On, Drop Out...
Were you a Hawk?...Or a Dove?
But there was, and IS....
One Glorious Place
Ann Arbor Michigan
On the corner of Stadium and Main
On most Saturday Afternoons in the Fall
A place where Ideology is NOT allowed
Where the ghosts of Past Heroes
Guides yet another class of Maize and Blue Warriors into Football Valhalla!!
This year the new and improved "Big House" will be Re-Dedicated.
And once again, (as it should be .)
We will be part of THE Largest Crowd in America, Cheering their team on!
Amid'st the Throng
Amid'st the Caucophony
Amid'st the Organized Chaos....
You take it all in
You smile to yourself, as you have for 40 years
Because you know in your heart
At this time and place
There is NO Where else on Earth, where you'd rather be!
God I Love It So....Hail, To The Victors!
We all have our Passions...
I'm not here to cram mine down anybody's throat.
This is just how I feel about Football Saturday!
For one day...I'm 21 again.
Please let me have my fun, I don't have that many more left.
Please pay a visit to the One Shot Poetry crew...Here.

TMI Tuesday...

Mr. Knowitall is distressed tonight, and TMI Tuesday is temporarily suspended! When I turned on my Homepage Yahoo at work today, The Headlines just jumped out at me... "Zsa Zsa requests last rites!!" Zsa Zsa was Catholic ? Plus wasn't she married about 8 or 9 times? And how did she get 8 annulments? I think when Zsa Zsa was young, she was married to one of the Medici Popes. But thats beside the point, when I was growing up she was the Queen of Glam! She was the Paris Hilton of her day, famous for being famous. In fact, Zsa Zsa was married to Conrad Hilton in the early 40's. So technically Zsa Zsa is Paris Hilton's Step Grandma! So poor Zsa Zsa is getting fed by a tube, just got Extreme Unction, and is fading fast. Personally I prefer NOT to remember her like that. The above pics is how I choose to remember her.
God speed on your next Jet-Set trip Honey....
"She always wears charms, diamonds, pearls galore.
She buys them at the 5 and 10 cent store.
She wants to be just like Zsa Zsa Gabor.
Even though she's the girl next door."
(Dion...Donna The Prima Donna)
PS...She was NOT the Green Acres Gabor.
That was her sister Eva.
Pax Vobiscum Zsa Zsa....!!!

Friday Flash 55.....


It was a quiet moon-less night, in a city that keeps it's secrets.
The occasional honk.
The haunting wail of a distant siren.
There's not much intelligent conversation at 3:00 AM.
After four years of pounding the pavement.....
Abby smiled at the thought of 'entertaining' her last stranger.
Tomorrow she flies home to Iowa.

If you or anyone you know has written a Friday Flash 55
Please come tell The G-Man!
I will visit, read, enjoy, comment....Then BOOK!!!

TMI Tuesday.....


A Mr. James Morrisson of Paris France asks......

"Dear Mr. Knowitall...I've heard that Paul McCartney is DEAD! Can this be true? And can you shed a little light on this old rumor"?

Dear Jim...Of Course I Can!!

I remember this incident very well back when it originally started in 1969. I was a sophomore in college. FM-Stereo was just a fledgling technology at the time, and a couple of Detroit stations were going to air programs discussing the "Paul is Dead" controversy. The key was to get out all the Beatles Albums you had, and have a turntable that you could play the records backwards with. And let me tell you this, I'm merely scratching the surface of all of the clues regarding Paul's death.

* First pic, cover of Abbey Road. Obviously a funeral procession. John is the preacher, Ringo the pall bearer, Paul the corpse (you are not buried with shoes), and George the grave digger. If you could blow up the license plate of the parked VW 'Beatle' on the street, it says 28IF. (Paul would have been 28 IF he were alive)!!

*2nd pic...Magical Mystery Tour. Notice the outstretched arms of The Walrus, as in crucifiction? One of the lyrics of a later song named "Glass Onion" states..'Here's another clue for you all, The Walrus was Paul'. Up to that point, everyone assumed it was John!!! Plus read the name plate of the military man that Paul is dressed as in that Album..I WAS!!!!

*3rd pic..Sgt Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band. Everyone is obviously standing overlooking a Funeral Bier. A very ominous hand is placed over Pauls head. On the Bier is an array of flowers shaped like a Left Handed guitar...Paul was a Lefty! A patch on Paul's arm reads OPD. Officially Pronounced Dead!!!

There are overt clues as well in the lyrics...

*As I said before in the song 'Glass Onion' The walrus is a symbol of death, and a Glass Onion is a coffin with a clear top.

*Eleanor Rigby.." Father McKenzie, wiping the the dirt from his hands as he walks from the grave". The original verse was supposed top be Father McCartney...hehehe

* "Strawberry Fields Forever"..At the end end of the song there is a line of mumbling that sounds like...'I Buried Paul'. John always claimed that he said..'I'm very bored'..

* the song..'A Day In The Life'...."he blew his mind out in a car, he didn't notice that the light had changed, a group of people gathered stood and stared....

* 'You Know My Name"...After the cuckoo clock chimes 5 times, a phone number is read off, if you were to call the number a voice says..'Beware of Abbey Road".

Backward Clues...

*Blue Jay Way'...Played backwards...'Paul is Bloody'.

*Revolution #9...When the words..number 9, number 9, number 9, is played backwards... 'Turn me On Dead Man'..Turn me on dead man, turn me on dead man.!!!

*I'm so tired...When the mumbling at the end is reversed, it says..."Paul is dead, miss him miss him miss him!"

*"I Am The Walrus'...When the ending is played backwards, it says..'Ha Ha Paul is Dead'!

Wow!!!! That brought back some memories!!
Good question Jim!!
You can draw your own conclusions, or you can read this...here!
All this remembering has made Mr. Knowitall weary!
I bid you Adieu...
