Coming To A City Near You

Saturday afternoon and the weather is warm and humid…..I have been hanging with the newest member of the family and puppy named Mojave….MO for short.  Damn!  I wish I had half the energy as this little girl.

Training a new puppy is just frustrating at times and other times it is just fascinating…..and a lot of fun.

But I need to move on to today’s second post……keeping with my tradition of posting stories that are not in the headlines is difficult at times for the MSM drives the conversation and does not like stories that bring them no notoriety…..

So onward,,,,,,,,

The digital age is approaching the climax (in more ways than one)…..you see sex is everyone’s favorite past time and droids are making it interesting….and I have written about this on several occasions…..

All this is the introduction to the “dolls” because very soon they are coming to a city near you…….

“Sex Robot Battle” sounds like the name of a B-movie one might stumble on during late-night channel-surfing, but that’s actually how KTRK depicts a war brewing between the mayor of a Texas city and the owner of a “sexbot business” out of Canada. The owner of KinkySDollS, which already has a location in Toronto—where patrons can pay for a private room and sex doll for anywhere between 30 minutes and two hours—tells the station he’s bringing his sex shop to Houston, and KHOU reports that Mayor Sylvester Turner is definitely not in a welcoming mood. “It’s not the sort of business that we advertise for, or we seek to attract,” Turner says. “Or quite frankly, from my point of view, the sort of business that I want in the city of Houston.”

A petition that so far has more than 9,000 signatures lays out the underlying issues—namely, that bot brothels will “ultimately harm men, their understanding of healthy sexuality, and increase the demand for the prostitution and sexual exploitation of women and children.” It also notes health risks, as there’s “no proven safe way to handle the disinfection of the humanoids.” But there may not be much the city can do to stop KinkySDollS from setting down roots. “There’s a difference between human prostitution and artificial prostitution,” a KHOU analyst says. “And therefore, there’s no law, that I’m aware of, that prohibits this.” Lawyers who talked to KTRK agree, though Turner says he’ll at least try to update local ordinances and make sure the business isn’t located near schools, day cares, or “faith-based institutions.”

I guess anything one can find to relieve tension is a good thing because tension can lead to gun violence (sorry just had to make the connection between sex dolls and gun violence)……

And now for a small musical interlude…….

May your Saturday be as relaxing as you wanted….peace out my friends…..chuq

Reading Is Essential!

Autumn began last week……that much closer to some cooler weather and down here that is important……

One of my crowning achievements is imparting my love of reading and books onto my daughter and now onto my granddaughter.

I have about 2500 books in my library and less then 10 books of fiction.  To say I love reading is an understatement….I like the feel of the pages, the smell of an old book….all in all I love books.

Recently the push has been for “books on tape” (audio books) this lets people “read” a book while driving, jogging, even when having sex (but I would not try this if one wants to keep breathing)…..this lets people expand their knowledge and their enjoyment of literature.

I admit it that I have been a critic of “books on tape”……well the truth is I have been a book snob.  I felt that something was being missed by listening to your book instead of reading it.

Well, like everything someone has done a study on this subject……

Even for people who love books, finding the opportunity to read can be a challenge. Many, then, rely on audiobooks, a convenient alternative to old-fashioned reading. You can listen to the latest bestseller while commuting or cleaning up the house.

But is listening to a book really the same as reading one?

“I was a fan of audiobooks, but I always viewed them as cheating,” says Beth Rogowsky, an associate professor of education at Bloomsburg University of Pennsylvania.

I will withdraw to the “War Room” and kick back and do whatever the Hell I want…..I love being retired.
