ShowMe Blog PodCast – My first one hour podcast on PodBean

If you listen to this podcast you will hear that I planned to talk about another subject.  But, I got sidetracked and talked about something else.  
Hell, I forget what I talked about.  I sure am not going to listen to myself for one hour now.  I am 77 years of age and I do not want to spend one hour listening to me.  Smile

  This podcast is about my first computer my first modem.  It about my TRS-80 model one.  I talk about setting up a bulletin board system (BBS).  

   I talk about Catholic high school, Ground Observer Corp, Civil Defense and so much more.
   If there is an award for being dull I think I might be in line to get the award.

Trump Hugged an American Flag

Is there one single person in the United States that thinks Donald Trump loves anyone other than himself?
Trump does not love the United States.  He does not love the American people.

Trump does not know how our system of government works. He knows nothing about our Constitution.

Larry, Jerry and me at Fairyland Park 1958

I was a junior at De La Salle Military Academy 1985.  Two of my friends, Jerry and Larry Winship and I went to Fairyland Park in Kansas City (MO) and made this 45 RMP recording in a small booth.

I forget how much it cost to make the recording.

Larry and Jerry Winship were identical twins.

Jerry L. Winship passed away August 29 of 2010.

Larry Lee Winship passed away November 20 of 2013 at age 72.

The thumbnail with this podcast is me, Jim Howard at age 77.

Larry and Jerry Winship and Jim Howard in 1958

This recording was made in a booth in 1958.  

 

“…Fairyland Park was an amusement park, located at 7501 Prospect Avenue in Kansas City, Missouri. The park operated from 1923 to 1977, at which time it was closed due to lack of attendance to the park and storm damage in late 1977.
Marcia Brancato Accurso’s grandfather, Salvatore “Sam” Brancato, a Sicilian immigrant and blacksmith by trade, came to the United States in 1896. After settling in Kansas City, he went into the grocery business, then began buying up real estate. He opened Fairyland Park in 1923.[1] It would be in the family until its closing in 1977. A year after “Sam”s passing in 1976. Admission to blacks was only to private groups and employees, until 1964. After protest marches, demonstrations and arrests for blocking the entrance, was general admission not segregated. Admission cost to the park was kept low (25 cents by 1971).[2] A storm in late 1977, which by some accounts was ‘a wind storm’, and by others ‘a tornado’, caused extensive damage to the park. This, combined with the nearby park Worlds of Fun caused the venerable park to shutter for good.
During the 1950s and 1960s, Fairyland boasted 3 roller coasters, an 8 story Ferris wheel(which was bent in half durina g tornado), a swimming pool(double Olympic size)(closed in late 50’s), bumper cars, a shooting range, and even a petting zoo at one time. “Sam” loved children smiling, and bought the “Kiddeland” at 85th & Wornall, moving the rides to Fairyland. Fairyland and its owners tried a number of gimmicks throughout their later days trying to compete with the newer and shinier Worlds of Fun built in 1972. Summer Jams included REO, Dr. Hook, Blue Oyster cult, Charlie Daniels, and many others in the final summers. In 1967 arsonist failed to burn the wooden rollercoaster, The Brancato family commissioned the construction of a new roller coaster, The Wildcat, in 1967. It would not be enough. The Wildcat was the park’s biggest ride, and helped the park stay competitive. Other promotions included advertising saying “Where “Fun” is Still Affordable”, keeping their admission at fifty cents while Worlds of Fun was charging five dollars, in addition to parking.
With attendance dwindling, the park suffered major storm damage in the winter of 1977–1978, and never re-opened. Whether or not the park really was damaged was always questioned, with some believing the park was just deciding to shut down and needing a reason. The Brancato family tried unsuccessfully to redevelop The Fairyland parcel as many things after the park closed, a swap meet and a zoo were mentioned. But in the end, the park would never again entertain guests…”  From Wikipedia

Dear Trump Voter

Trump promised to “Make America Great Again,” but seven months into his presidency he has done exactly the opposite: stoking hate and division, selling out to lobbyists, and profiting at the public’s expense. Robert Reich explains that for the good of the country, it is time for all of us to speak out against him.
