Poor Ol' Norward J. Brooks

Norward J. Brooks, Ph.D - Executive Dean

Too proud to ask competent computer people either on the Seattle Vocational Institute campus or the Main Seattle Central Campus. He knows/knew nothing about computers but still hired two scam artists to start and manage their own programs. The first mistake was hiring Michael Baker to teach a Computer Tech course. This guy was total bullshit but at least he had a few students and the program lasted a few years.

The real character misjudgment he made was with Steve Mulligan who accomplished absolutely nothing but a paycheck for himself. At least his big fat failure only lasted a year. A grand plan for an IT educational department my ass.

Then you have people like Portia Carter who ran her little fiefdom of special needs kids and financial aid. Great program but Portia was a bitch who operated mostly at the top of her lungs. She was second in seniority to Norward so he could not have gotten rid of her but could have tried to tone her down ... like when she made a public accusation I was deleting her files. The problem was trying to get people to save their files on the server instead of "who knows where" on their PC. Norward did not like to rock the boat and I had the feeling that is how he got the job. The way Norward handled a few other personnel issues that came up I can't help think there was some racism involved. Very ineffective as Dean of a Campus

Oh well ... I've been gone for 10 years and the four I mentioned are all gone as well. The new website does not list employees or teachers so I don't know who is there now. There were a lot of good people and some are still there I'm sure.

The Donald piñata

Not only did NBC Universal and Univision dump The Trump
but now you can bash him as a piñata

Let the Donald Trump bashing begin – Mexican artisan launches piñata

After Donald Trump’s Mexico-bashing comments this week, Mexicans are engaging in a little Trump-bashing of their own.

Artisan Dalton Avalos Ramirez has launched a Trump piñata, featuring The Donald’s inimitable hairstyle and a big, big mouth.

The papier-mache figure will come in a variety of sizes. The first was on display Friday at the Pinatas Ramirez store in the border city of Reynosa.

Avalos Ramirez says he created it “because of the hatred Trump expressed for the Mexican people”.

Two of my favorite assholes

OK .... all four of these right wing nut jobs

The assholes of Duck Dynasty and right wing nut job Alfred E. Jindal. One of the Duck Dynasty jerks just endorsed Bobby Jindal after his announcement he has joined the presidential race. "He's a great dude" says Jeb Robertson. Look a little further and you find Louisiana has been subsidizing Duck Dynasty with a very bizarre entertainment tax credit. Duck Dynasty can't make it on it's own.

Louisiana’s state budget is in shambles under Republican Governor Bobby Jindal. The Governor’s dogmatic anti-tax ideology, coupled with dropping oil prices, has put Louisiana 1.6 billion dollars in the red. The state has become an economic basket case, and Governor Jindal’s approval rating has plummeted to just 27 percent, according to a March 2015 Triumph Campaigns poll.

Despite the state’s economic woes, however, Governor Jindal has made no plans to cut millions of dollars in subsidies to the Duck Dynasty TV show. Louisiana has the nation’s most generous entertainment tax credit program, which doles out generous sums to subsidize filming, including funds for filming the show Duck Dynasty.

Feeding Time Productions LLC, the producer of Duck Dynasty, is seeking 11 million dollars in new tax credits for the next four years to subsidize costs for filming the show. Since Governor Jindal has proposed no changes to the entertainment tax credit program, that funding is likely to be approved.

Now we got photos just incase

Actually if Elke was halfway intelligent, tended to be an agreeable person and was innocent of the charges presented here ..... she would laugh it all off or correct my interpretation. Instead she won't reply to a reasonable retorts and resorts to explosive name calling on TomZap message board.  Sorry Elk ... you have to prove your worth with your mind not just what wealth and expensive gadgets you have accumulated.

Then you have the Moron Dryhouse (John Jankovsky) who only likes to stir things up in the negative direction posting links to this Blog (as an Elke supporter) so everyone can really see what a crazy person Elke is. Got nearly 150 hits that day thanks to DryHouse.

From Alice's Restaurant
They took twenty seven eight-by-ten colour glossy photographs with circles and arrows and a paragraph on the back of each one explaining what each One was to be used as evidence against us. Took pictures of the approach, the getaway, the northwest corner the southwest corner and that's not to mention the aerial photography.

A couple idiots ignoring the facts to the point they may contest the whole issue.  Book 'um Dano

Cleaning House

More like just cleaning up my life. I used to love playing the harmonica but have only played a few times since moving to Mexico. Musicians come and go, groups come and go ... and friends come and go. Just tired of looking for the right people to play with.

So rather than letting my collection sit around gathering dust I put them up for sale on Facebook. Someone that plays at Palapa Joe's in La Manzanilla wants them and will meet me today by Roosters with the money. 1500 pesos will be spent on paint for the house and I can say goodbye to an occasional urge to play.

The Wicked Witch of Melaque

Just a refresh so we don't loose track of the post ....

This very unhappy woman has mental problems and seems totally unaware she has them.  Spewing her hatred in public as though people can't see right through her.  It's really sad people can't enjoy their retirement relaxing and enjoying such a pleasant place as Melaque, Mexico - but this one can't.  She's been stalking me for the last few years and it's impossible to follow her logic why ... because she either lies or bends the truth to the point of being ridiculous.   Just after I saw her last attack this morning I noticed the cartoon below, which does not really fit but the bit about "good thoughts can't be ugly" sure does

Here is the message board post she made last night at 3:30 in the morning and made her last of 4 Edits at almost 6 in the morning.   She must have insomnia along with her other problems.  Elke Gasvoda is a very sad case.

must be an IMPOSTOR - according to Sparks - he does NOT drive at night. Sparks lived with Shoe while his house in Pinal Villa was being built and couldn't be bothered to drive after dark! When Shoe couldn't breathe and needed medical attention, he called us and Vern drove Shoe to Echauri Hospital in Manzanillo, because Sparks wouldn't drive at night.
Shoe died the next morning at 11 AM...
So - could not have been Sparks, taking those photos and posting them - he doesn't drive in Mexico after dark.

TomZap message board is a lunatic asylum

Fast Eddie - our local crackpot
In Melaque/Barra Mexico

The latest is a number of people don't like negative restaurant reviews and others think diners experience should be shared. They end up being quite rude to each other .... and then a bunch of new people accuse them of acting like 12 year old's (which they are).  Amid all the mayhem in comes Fast Eddie with a totally non related and nonsensical post about me getting him Moderated. He's right because he was carrying on like an idiot.  Retired Gringos in Paradise

Fast Eddie's crazy post .....
it seems as though im being moderated because of a certain poster and he knows who he is complains to nancy and zap im moderated,, i asked him to put my post on hide messages but he is to nosy i guess and he didnt like what i argued about and of course he has more influence than me with nancy . i really doubt that this post will get posted but there are some on the board that carry alot more weight than others, its a crime to to argue with some posters and yet some posters can argue as much as they want willow, you had better watch your words, f---ing idiot, name calling not aloud and d&d you are may get moderated by above poster if he doesnt like what you write, of course its toms formum so they can do what they want but like i said before DONT RUFFLE some posters or they will get you moderated by complaing to nancy , oh and by the way i asked him to hide my messages but he just could not resist to see what i had wrote, THIS IS DIFFENTLY not a forum of free speech,, there is a old saying STICK AND STONES MAY BREAK YOUR BONES, BUT WORDS NEVER WILL,, not so the case on this forum no cuss words , and dont argue with certain posters.

Poster #1
What a happy little place. Sounds like not everybody has a Feliz ano in Melaque. A poster complains about service in a restaurant and everyone jumps all over them !

Poster #2
When physically in Barra/Melaque it seems like the average gringo/expat is around 65. When I read some of the posts here, it seems like a bunch of 12-year olds, lol! Not referring to the original post, but the rather juvenile responses of some. Sigh.

Poster #3
Hola, everyone.....this is my first/virgin post...and what a thread I chose to read FIRST!!!!! Made me nostalgic for the old days on What's Up Maz (a Mazatlan forum, which has now pretty well died). Seems things do not change, wherever expats get together and one up each other. Yup....a bunch of 12 year olds.
I'm on this forum for the information it can provide; hope there will be lots of that. :))
Feliz Ano!

Starting this Blog so I don't have to post my personal life and trivia in my other Blogs that mainly are concerned with Mexico

The original reason for this Blog has changed a bit towards being political and exposing a few jerks that we run across in the news or in person. Hope some of you find it interesting.
