*** No Rant Tomorrow. Traveling***

HEAT WAVE .. European Style ..

If you have a trip to Italy planned for next week .. Bring suntan lotion and shorts .. or light sundresses !! .. They are experiencing a heat wave and temperatures are expected to hit 113 degrees .. and..

Ukraine: I think I like the UK Defense Secretary .. (although they write it Defence, with a "C") ..."Ukraine should adopt a less demanding tone when speaking to nations that are arming it to fight against Russia", UK Defence Secretary Ben Wallace has suggested. “We are not Amazon,” he said. .. HAHAHAH...

So, you're saying its OK to use a demanding tone with Amazon?...

Also in Ukraine: A high-ranking Russian general has been killed in a Storm Shadow missile strike in an occupied Ukrainian city, according to reports from both countries. Lt. Gen. Oleg Tsokov died Monday when a barrage of cruise missiles obliterated the Dune Hotel in Berdiansk in the southern Zaporizhzhia region, where Russian military commanders had been quartered.

In Da Swamp:

The Charge of the Gaffe Brigade .. President Biden didn't go to the opening dinner of the NATO meeting because he was tired and had 4 days of meetings coming up .. So, he needed his rest.. .. It didn't help ..

Biden gave a speech and called Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy "Vladmir, .. then .. "Russia could end this war tomorrow by withdrawing its forces from Ukraine and recognizing its international borders and ceasing its attacks – its inhumane attacks – on Russia" ... (uhh.. Russia attacking Russia?) .. He caught himself and said .. "No.. Ukraine" ..


Back in the USA..

Your Vice President got wrecked on Twitter after posting: "The majority of domestic flights do not have accessible restrooms. This is absolutely unacceptable." . "Our Administration will soon announce a solution to help end this inequity." .. The responses ranged from:

"So when seating capacity is diminished, do you plan to deploy the government to solve the pricing problem the government created," and "Oh f’n lovely. Get ready for trans bathrooms big enough to hold a baby whale and the increase in ticket prices for the rest of us to make up for the missing row of seats" .. to ..

"Yeah, forget the border and all the important stuff and get on that .. " to ..

"I honestly had to check to see if this was a parody account," ..

My question is: "What do you mean 'accessible'" ? As in. .. Wheelchair people can't get in them? .. or.. there isn't one for trans people? (Aren't they all "both sexes"?? ) ... also..

Isn't this Transportation Secretary Pete Booty Juice's area .. (If you missed the reference, Biden thanked Buttegieg at a speech saying, "Thank you Secretary Booty Juice") ... Airplane bathrooms aren't really on a VP's "to do" list, are they?? ..and..

So much for the "It" girl.. ..CNN show “The Source with Kaitlan Collins,” drew 540,000 total viewers and 83,000 in the advertiser-coveted 25 to 54-year-old demographic, according to Nielsen ratings data. That marked a 13% dip in total viewers for the same day last year, and a 44% decline for viewers aged 25 to 54 — the lowest for a 9 p.m. show on Monday for the already ratings-challenged news channel since January ...

...and the creepy BBC broadcaster is..... Huw Edwards .. See.. I told you he'd be identified in a few days .. His wife is going with, "He is dealing with mental health issues and we are concerned about him" ... Yeah lady, a 60 year old dude paying a 17 year old drug addict for naked pictures DEFINITELY has some issues .. and...

Happy BIIIIRRRTHHHDAAYYY to Krispy Kreme Doughnuts .. Today in 1937 the first Krispy Kreme store opened in Old Salem, NC in order to sell to local grocery stores .. passers by smelled the doughnut wonderfullness and walked in asking to buy them.. The rest is history ..


GOLF: The DP World Tour: Scottish Open: Rory McIlroy with the early lead but there are a ton of great golfers within a shot or two ..

PGA TOUR: Barbasol from Kentucky is almost a JV event .. The highest Fedex ranking player in the field is Justin Lower at 93 .. Everyone else is 100 or more .. I'm going out on a limb and calling a Lucas Glover win. Got a new putter recently .. Hoping he ends his long drought.. and..

Get Well Dicky V !! Basketball Legend Dick Vitale revealed a vocal chord cancer diagnosis .. He should be OK with a few weeks of radiation .. So, we wish the beloved announcer well !!!


..aaaaannndddd.. The SOFA-WILL WINS!!! A judge has ruled the 2014 handwritten will in Aretha Franklin's sofa is the governing will because the will in her desk was dated 2010. The dispute caused a family war.. ... Again folks .. If you don't have an Estate plan in place.. make one.. NOW..

Braxton Berrios hit the red carpet with his girlfriend Alix Earle .. HERE.. which of course .. means.. RANT CONTEST. !!.. With a BIG twist this time ..

Berrios broke up with girlfriend of 2 years Sophia Culpo recently and now dates Earle .. .. so.. WHO YA GOT ?? .. Sophia Culpo ..HERE.. HERE.. or Alix Earle ..HERE.. HERE.. and...

Here is the twist to the story .. the THIRD "or" .. is.. OR Alix Earle's STEP MOM .. who is none other than Ashley Dupree the former "Elliot Spitzer-Client #9-hooker" that hooked up with Alix Earle's dad and ended his marriage (to Alix's mom).. then married him and had a few kids !! ... HERE.. HERE..

Yes, in a perfect world the answer is "All Three" .. but .. we don't live in a perfect world .. so... WHO YA GOT ??!?!?!?
