 Drinking at the Marriott:: Some  have been known to have had brushes with the authorities on our way home from the odd social session over the years.
A couple of nights ago, I was out for a few drinks
with some friends at the Marriott Hotel and had a few too many beers. Knowing full well I may have been slightly over the limit, I did something I've never done before .... I took a bus home. Sure enough I passed a police roadblock but as it was a bus they waved it past.I arrived home safely without incident, which was a real surprise, as I have never driven a bus before and am not sure where I got it from!

Interesting Story: Country magazine According to company legend, prior to the start of the American Civil War, James Vernor, a clerk at a Detroit pharmacy, was experimenting with flavors in an attempt to duplicate a popular ginger ale imported from Dublin, Ireland.

Guist Brothers… Swamp People on History

Guatemala Looking to Cash in on 2012 Doomsday Theory. I think the Guist brothers are ready..

ONE WAY TO LOOK AT IT::::::::::::::::::::::

Let’s put (income) tax cuts in terms everyone can understand. Suppose that every day, ten men go out to dinner. The bill for all ten comes to $100. If they paid their bill the way we pay our taxes, it would go something like this:
The first four men – the poorest- would pay nothing; the fifth would pay $1, the sixth would pay $3, the seventh $7, the eighth $12, the ninth $18 and the tenth man – the richest- would pay $59. That’s what they decided to do. The ten men ate dinner in the restaurant every day and seemed quite happy with the arrangement, until one day the owner threw them a curve (in tax language, a tax cut).
“Since you are all such good customers,” he said, “I’m going to reduce the cost of your daily meal by $20.” So now the dinner for the ten only cost $80.
The group still wanted to pay their bill the way we pay our taxes, so the first four men were unaffected. They would still eat for free. But what about the other six – the paying customers? How could they divvy up the $20 windfall so that everyone would get his “fair share?” The six men realized that $20 divided by six is $3.33. If they subtracted that from everybody’s share, then the fifth man and the sixth man would end up being paid to eat their meals.
So the restaurant owner suggested that it would be fair to reduce each man’s bill by the same amount, and he proceeded to work out the amounts each should pay. The fifth man now paid nothing, the sixth paid $2, the seventh paid $5, the eighth paid $9, the ninth paid $12, leaving the tenth man with a bill of $52 instead of his earlier $59. Each of the six was better off than before and the first four continued to eat for free.
However, once outside the restaurant, the men began to compare their savings. “I only got a dollar out of the $20” declared the sixth man, pointing to the tenth, “But he got $7!”
“Yeah, that’s right!” exclaimed the fifth man. “I only saved a dollar, too. It’s unfair that he got seven times more than me.” “That’s true!” shouted the seventh man, “Why should he get $7 back when I got only $2? The wealthy get all the breaks!” “Wait a minute,” yelled the first four men in unison. We didn’t get anything at all. The system exploits the poor!’
The nine men surrounded the tenth and beat him up. The next night he didn’t show up for dinner (or, in the real world, he took his business out of the country), so the nine sat down and ate without him. When it came time to pay the bill, they discovered, a little late, what was very important. They were $52 short of paying the bill. Imagine that!
“…And that, boys and girls, journalists and college instructors, is how the tax system works. The people who pay the highest taxes get the most benefit from a tax reduction. Tax them too much or attack them for being wealthy, and they just may not show up at the table anymore. Where would that leave the rest? Unfortunately, most taxing authorities anywhere cannot seem to grasp this rather straightforward logic!’
The end

Road Trip to The John Dillinger Museum in Hammond,Indiana


Map picture

John Dillinger Museum  7770 Corinne Drive Hammond, IN (219) 989-7979


“John Herbert Dillinger, Jr. (June 22, 1903 – July 22, 1934) was an American bank robber of German descent in Depression-era United States. He was charged with, but never convicted of, the murder of an East Chicago, Indiana police officer during a shoot-out. This was his only alleged homicide. His gang robbed two dozen banks and four police stations. Dillinger escaped from jail twice.”




During the 1930s Depression, many Americans, nearly helpless against forces they didn't understand, made heroes of outlaws who took what they wanted at gunpoint.






“His father, a hardworking grocer, raised him in an atmosphere of disciplinary extremes, harsh and repressive on some occasions, but generous and permissive on others. John's mother died when he was three, and when his father remarried six years later, John resented his stepmother.” I had better tell you where I got the above info or “THEY” might come for me. LOL.Read more at FBI web site



“As a teenager, Dillinger was frequently in trouble with the law for fighting and petty theft; he was also noted for his "bewildering personality" and bullying of smaller children.”



100_7324 Dillinger may have thought he was Houdini. He was involved in three jail breaks.



“Dillinger helped conceive a plan for the escape of Pierpont, Clark and six others from Indiana State Prison (above photo). He had met them while previously in prison, most  worked in the prison laundry. Dillinger had friends smuggle rifles into their prison cells which they used to escape.”

“Among Dillinger's more celebrated exploits was his pretending to be a sales representative for a company that sold bank alarm systems. He reportedly entered a number of Indiana and Ohio banks and used this ruse to assess security systems and bank vaults of prospective targets.”






100_7362 The beginning of the end…

“Dillinger made the mistake that would cost him his life. He stole the sheriff's car and drove across the Indiana-Illinois line, heading for Chicago. By doing that he violated the National Motor Vehicle Theft Act, which made it a federal offense to transport a stolen motor vehicle across a state line.”  J.Edgar Hoover and Melvin Purvis take up the chase..


Dillinger attended the film Manhattan Melodrama at the Biograph Theater




“When the movie let out, Special Agent Melvin Purvis stood by the front door and signaled Dillinger's exit by lighting a cigar. Both he and the other agents reported that Dillinger turned his head and looked directly at the agent as he walked by, glanced across the street, then moved ahead of his female companions,  and ran into a nearby alley. Other accounts state Dillinger ignored a command to surrender, whipped out his gun, then headed for the alley. Agents already had the alley closed off, but Dillinger was determined to shoot it out.”

100_7393At the morgue


Dillinger's body was displayed to the public at the Cook County morgue after his death.

100_7394“ Dillinger was buried at Crown Hill Cemetery (Section: 44, Lot: 94) in Indianapolis. His gravestone has had to be replaced several times because of vandalism by people chipping off pieces as souvenirs.”

SPENT SOME TIME IN INDIANA and thanks for stopping by. If you are near Chicago or northern Indiana stop by the museum.


Always good for a Road Trip
