Nanepashemet Peep of the Year - 2013

It's that magical time of year again, Peeps.....
~
At the stroke of midnight, the reign of Kerry Russell D'Orio as the 2012 Peep of the Year comes to a crashing end, and the power shifts to a new, hapless yet fortuitous POTY.
~
As you now should be so painfully aware, the Peep of the Year selection criteria is identical to the weekly standard held for the POTW.
~
The successful candidate must ....

Have been either particularly annoying or inspirational,
Not be an Animal,
And not be Dead.
~
That leaves the field pretty wide open.
~
There are also a couple side rules that bear mentioning...  You can never ask who the POTY is going to be, and if you suggest a POTY, that candidate is banned from the award/disgrace.   And the most important criteria of all.... You can never ask why the candidate was chosen.  That is an immutable, final rule.
~
Pretty simple, but you would be amazed at how many Peeps can't seem get this simple criteria straight.
~
Usually, the Peep of the Year experiences events during his/her reigning year that are life transforming.   Sometimes this is obvious, and other times is it is imperceptable.  In the case of reigning POTY, Kerry, she did seem to blossom this year in her steadfast committment to Motherhood, Republicans, and Brendt.
~
This year will bring change to the new POTY as well.
~
Many of you think that you know the reason for this choice, and you may be right, but can never be certain.
~
The Peep of the Year for 2013 is.....
BRADY BOYLE.
Use your Power Wisely, Brady.

Feel free to Congratulate/Console Brady for this ultimate Honor/Disgrace.
It will be a memorable  Year for him and for us as well.
~
Brady now joins an elite cadre of individuals whose lives will never be the same.

  • Lauren Rathbone ~ 2008
  • Michael "Murph" Murphy ~ 2009

    Congrats Brady. I can't believe looking at the dates that I have been reading this blog for six years, time flies.   ~  Lauren Rathbone


    Brady Boyle Said....
    My oh my, holy crap what an honor,
    The Peep of the Year title is nothing to ponder.
    Without hesitation I gladly accept,
     The responsibilities ahead will all soon be met.
    To Kerry D’Orio, your time has passed,
    You served the post well, but now kiss my ass.
    The Mayans were wrong, there's nothing to fear,
    Hope everyone else has one hell of a year.
    ~

    POTY Poetry -
    I don't know about you Peeps, but this has got me all misty eyed.
    You have begun your Reign well, Brady.

    New Year's Resolution - 2013

    So many of you Peeps have been nagging me to disclose my New Year's resolutions.
    ~
    I can tell you that one of my key resolutions is to be more patient with your foibles and annoying requests.  So I'm not as irritated with your pesky probings as I normally would be.
    ~
    I guess I could wait until Tues. to lay out my 2013 resolutions, but I have them all in tow right now, so I might as well drop some heavy duty, Mountain of a Man, Wisdom on you in this posting.
    ~
    Simply stated, I'd like to dedicate the entire year of 2013 to a singular effort.   To take each moment in it's present, without judgement.

    That means, I will strive not to label everything that happens with a past experience.  Nor will I define the present based upon the concerns of what might happen in the future.
    ~
    If the present moment suggests action, I will move forward.  If it suggests restraint, I will hold back.  Both with the faith that the present circumstance is the cosmic best of all possible outcomes. 
    ~
    The Sages tell us that perfect joy is the natural order of things, and the harmony of joy rests in the present moment.  
    ~
    So my resolution is to stay focused on the present, and trust that the present will provide harmony, joy and abundance amid a chaotic and constantly changing world.
    ~
    This doesn't mean that you'll see me sitting around with a sappy smile on my face all day.   It means that I won't be chastising myself when I am angry, or lazy, or stupid.  I will be accepting those states as the natural reaction to the present without judgement.
    ~
    If this doesn't work out, I can always revert to my normal cantankerous, abrasive self in 2014.

    Progressive Herd

    Congressman Ed Markey has announced for the Senate Seat being vacated by the elite John Kerry.   Kerry gave his blessing to the notion.
    ~
    So that's it Dems.   Herd yourselves to the Polls to make it official.   And please try to end these incessant "Baa, Baa, Baa" utterances.
    ~
    You may act like sheep, but you don't have to bleat like them.
    ~
    And I wish you wouldn't  call yourselves "Progressives".   That's just another perfectly good term gone down the shithole.
    ~
    But then you'll have to deal with the evil Scott Brown.  More people voted for Brown when he lost to the Indian than when he beat Martha Coakley.  The Presidential vote and tons of national "Progressive" money brought a high tide of votes for the Warren Cherokee Lady, so our boy Scott came up on the short end.   But that's no guarantee that Markey won't get the Coakley treatment from Scott Brown.
    ~
    So the Elite Progressives can't just swat him away.  Very Inconvenient.

    Hapless Helmsman

    Peeps...
    The so called "Fiscal Cliff" is a construct of the Federal Government.  It was created by the Feds, and now the big drama to avoid it is being carried out by the Feds.
    ~
    It is a series of laws that they can legislate away.... just like the way they spend your money on massive amounts of debt that they have no right to accrue.
    ~
    Don't you feel like the state of the US Federal Budget is a runaway juggernaut, and that nobody has the balls or expertise to take the helm?    The President is the Leader.  It is ultimately his responsibility.  History will never even footnote who was the Speaker of the House when the ship went up on the rocks.

    Getting Platonic

    "Be Kind, for everyone you meet is fighting a hard battle."
    ~ Plato

    The old Greek is on to something, isn't he?
    ~
    No matter who you are, you have your problems... and everybody that you look at has theirs.   So don't try to pile your shit onto others.  Shoulder your responsibilites.  Face your adversities.
    ~
    At least you are not alone.

    Acquired Taste

    I took Joanne and Grandsons Will and Ethan over to the Northeast Animal Shelter in Salem yesterday, and we came home with Henry, a 1 year old, short haired, Black cat.
    ~
    Henry pooped and peed in the litterbox last night, but other than that, he seems to hate us and has stayed hidden since we brought him back to the Sundance house.
    ~
    Whatever Henry.
    ~
    The Nestor Family is an acquired taste, as many of you Peeps can testify.  It takes a while.

    POTW Week 51

    Peeps....
    Do you hear that steady Thud, Thud, Thud in the background?
    ~
    That's the drums beating for the nomination to the year's Peep of the Year.   The reigning POTY, Kerry Russell D'Orio's special year is almost up, and she will shortly be passing her crown to another fortunate yet hapless Peep.
    ~
    Who will it be????  You know I can't answer that, yet the choice is so freaking clear this year that I can't believe that you don't already know.

    ANNOUNCING....
    Nanepashemet Peeps of the Week for the 51st Week of 2012

    Mayor Tom Mennino
    Joanna Stanton
    Tony DeFillipo
    Bob Wojcik
    Alex Watts
    Jill Phillips

    Christmas shopping is done, but I'm thinking to going over to the Northeast Animal Shelter in Salem and getting a cat to start off the New Year and celebrate our continuing survival.

    Joy of Giving

    With three days to Christmas, I'd like to wind things down... ratchet back a bit.   But I have a ton of Nanepashemet Telecom financials to get out before the end of the year, and haven't gotten any substantial shopping done.
    ~
    Glad that the Mayan prediction was a bust.
    ~
    So now we can empty our wallets and experience the joy of giving.

    Beat Back Buzz Kill

    Peeps....
    With only a few hours to go... I think we made it.
    ~
    The only disaster seems to be President Obama's nomination of John Kerry for Secretary of State.
    ~
    Although the huge silver lining on this is the chance to see our man, Scott Brown, get the seat that he was outspent on by the first ever Native American Senator from Massachusetts, WhatsHerName.
    ~
    I hope he runs.
    ~
    Other than that, the nation gets to see our boy, "Do You Know Who I Am" Jawn "Purple Heart" Kerry wield his lovable , entitled self on the international stage.
    ~
    Peace on Earth, Goodwill toward Dems.  At least we beat those buzz killing Mayans square in their tracks.

    Doomsday Prediction

    With the Mayan last day set for tomorrow, I guess I should sound in on the Doomsday predictions.
    ~
    Peeps... I'm not scared.   It takes more than a Mayan and his stone calendar to run a shiver up the spine of this Mountain of a Man.
    ~
    And I'm no Prepper. Won't see me stocking a concrete bunker in the backyard.  If everything goes haywire, I'll be looting and scavaging like the rest of you Bastards.  I won't be trying to fend off Peeps trying to steal my hoard, because I'll be out there trying to steal yours.
    ~
    But I kind of hope that I can scarf up a case of Scotch, build a bonfire, and sing Kumbaya at the top of my lungs with any hapless Peep that wanders near.   Then I will find a boat, and go for a long row.
    ~
    Someday this world is going to come to an end.
    ~
    But not yet, Peeps.    Not yet.

    Want v. Need

    Peeps...
    There is a difference between want and need in our society.
    ~
    And the firearms control issue illustrates this perfectly.
    ~
    I feel like a jerk saying that at least one teacher in Newtown should have been able to bear a concealed weapon.  It's not something I want, but it obviously is something that was needed.
    ~
    I don't want teachers to have weapons... I don't want anyone to have weapons.... but this isn't a wish for "world peace" at a beauty pageant.
    ~
    Until we can control the mentally ill, and the sociopaths, and the criminals... we need to arm ourselves.
    ~
    This is an imperfect, flawed society.  You have to deal with reailty, and take responsibility for your needs rather than wish them away, or delegate to others.

    Smith and Wesson BodyGuard 380


    At first I was moved at President Obama's speech in Newtown.  But then he said that "we haven't done enough" and "we must change".
    ~
    Sorry Peeps.... that is classic Bullshit.  It is not our fault if lightning strikes.  And more people would die if you banned lightning rods because they attracted lightning.
    ~
    I'm sure that a lot of people smarter than me could poke holes in this analogy, but my fear is that the knee jerk reaction of Obamanistas will be to try to take legal firearms away from law abiding citizens, when the reseach  shows that to defend ourselves, and lessen crime, more firearms, responsibly licensed, is the answer.
    ~
    I'm all for banning automatic assault weapons - the guns with large bullet firing capacity that spray hundreds of rounds as the trigger is depressed.   Here in Massachusetts, and also in Connecticut, this is the case.   There is no need for this type of firepower in the public domain.
    ~
    But I'm also in favor of arming responsible citizens with concealed handguns.  In Massachusetts, you can't have a magazine of more than seven rounds.   But this would have been enough to halt the mental case in Newtown.
    ~
    Somehow, I don't think that our President had in mind that we must "change" by developing programs to insure that our citizens can defend themselves and their children.   I fear that he will call for measures that will make us more vulnerable and put our families in greater danger.
    ~
    Brave teachers in Newtown put themselves in the line of fire to save their students.  Their only weapon was the flesh of their bodies.  What if just one of them had a Smith and Wesson BodyGuard 380 and knew how to use it responsibly?
    ~
    We can't wish or legislate that sociopaths and criminals don't harm ourselves and our families.  Unfortunately, in this imperfect world, we have to take realistic measures.

    Non-Political, Common Sense

    Morgan Freeman's brilliant take on what happened at the Sandy Hook Elementary School:

    TURN OFF THE NEWS.......

Morgan Freeman's brilliant take on what happened yesterday :

"You want to know why. This may sound cynical, but here's why.

It's because of the way the media reports it. Flip on the news and watch how we treat the Batman theater shooter and the Oregon mall shooter like celebrities. Dylan Klebold and Eric Harris are household names, but do you know the name of a single *victim* of Columbine? Disturbed
people who would otherwise just off themselves in their basements see the news and want to top it by doing something worse, and going out in a memorable way. Why a grade school? Why children? Because he'll be remembered as a horrible monster, instead of a sad nobody.

CNN's article says that if the body count "holds up", this will rank as the second deadliest shooting behind Virginia Tech, as if statistics somehow make one shooting worse than another. Then they post a video interview of third-graders for all the details of what they saw and heard while the shootings were happening. Fox News has plastered the killer's face on all their reports for hours. Any articles or news stories yet that focus on the victims and ignore the killer's identity? None that I've seen yet. Because they don't sell. So congratulations, sensationalist media, you've just lit the fire for someone to top this and knock off a day care center or a maternity ward next.

You can help by forgetting you ever read this man's name, and remembering the name of at least one victim. You can help by donating to mental health research instead of pointing to gun control as the problem. You can help by turning off the news."

    POTW Week 50

    I had a birthday celebration with the family last week, where I was presented with my favorite gift, Lagavulin 16 year old Single Malt Scotch by my kids and their significant others.

    Usually, when someone makes this special effort, it is singular in purpose and designed to attain the status of being named as an Automatic Peep of the Week.   But this is clearly a group effort, so it's the first group nomination... probably ever.
    ~
    ANNOUNCING....
    Peeps of the Week for the 50th Week of 2012

    Ryan Nestor
    Katelyn Nestor
    Mike Nestor
    Brady Boyle
    Pam Georgian
    Kim Hause

    Birthdays at my age can be depressing events.  This definitely took the glint off.

    Newtown Never Again

    Our hearts go out to the families in Newtown, Connecticut.
    ~
    A random sociopath kills a complete classroom of kindergarten kids and adults... including his mother.
    ~
    It makes you realize that despite all outward appearances, we still live in the state of nature.... No, we don't get eaten by bears, or have neighboring tribes steal our crops and try to kill us.... but we still can't let our guard down.
    ~
    There exists every day, the infintesimal chance that some sociopath can attack you and yours, and virtually destroy your life.
    ~
    A while back, I felt that gun control was the answer.  Eliminate the Weapons.  But then, as I researched the controls and process that the various state governments, including Connecticut, has in place, it has become apparent to me that the proper governmental measures have already been instituted for law abiding individuals to bear arms as our constitution prescibes.
    ~
    But you have to agree that criminals and the deranged sociopaths will always get the guns.   Could this have been lessened if some responsibly licensed school officials in Newtown had their own handgun?   And could take responsible countermeasures.... i.e. cap that crazy bastard?
    ~
    You hate to think that we still live in the Wild West... but it is what it is. 
    ~
    When I had my Massachusetts Gun Permit renewed a few weeks ago, I asked the desk officer if the Marblehead Police Department had an increase in applications.   She held up a bowl containing about thirty licenses that were ready to be issued.  Then, the other day, when I was purchasing some target ammunition at the Middleton firearms store, I asked the owner if sales were up.  He said the volume had ballooned recently.
    ~
    So I'm not behind the curve on this one.
    ~
    I don't carry a concealed handgun with me everyday... because I travel throughout New England on a moment's notice, and I'm only licensed in Massachusetts.  But there's a good chance that I'll apply for licenses in the neighboring states.
    ~
    Because I'd hate to be in a situation where a stoked up mental case was pumping rounds into a classroom of 5 year olds, and I couldn't put a hollow point cartridge square into his body mass and out the asshole.

    Satisfying Sojourn

    Another Sojourn by your own Mountain of a Man down to New Haven County today.
    ~
    Although the ride was a Bitch, it was worth the trip as I surveyed one site, pulled a permit on another, met with City officials on an innovative third build, picked up some Engineering Certifications on the ride back through Central Mass, and had dinner with son, Mike, and Super Peep, Matt Lyons.
    ~
    After 13 hours on the road, this MOAM was one hurting buckaroo, yet justifiably satisfied by the fruits of a rich full day, when I finally landed back in Marblehead.
    ~
    Tomorrow is Friday.  I will ratchet back a bit.

    End of the World Time

    OK... I'm sure that most of you Peeps realize that the end of the world according to the Mayans, Nostradamus, Hopis, Merlin the Magician, Edgar Cayce, and others is supposed to be right around the corner.... Dec. 21, 2012 to be exact.  That would be about nine days from now.
    ~
    Peeps.... if we all go together in a cosmic cataclysm such as hit Brontosaurus and his Bros..... what is the big deal?????  If the Asteriod hits and takes us all out at the relative same time, then all of our daily machinations and worries will all be for naught.
    ~
    No drama, no revenge, no come-uppance, no triumph of ideologies, no happily ever after... all of those hours at the gym.... all over.  For Nothing. Nada.  Zilch.
    ~
    Our Destiny?  Poof!   No Trajedy, no Triumph.  Every one of  our. striving goals... Gonzo.
    ~
    Glad I never passed on the last piece of pizza.

    Broadened Horizons

    Peeps...
    You can't just sit in the house all Sunday, post stuff into Facebook to see if you can aggravate anyone, watch cable movies, fart in the couch, and get yelled at by your wife.
    ~
    You have to spread your horizons.
    ~
    So by 3:00 PM, I summoned the energy to put on my shoes and socks, pull over a sweater, meander out of the house and stroll down through Gerry Playground to the Stramski Beach.
    ~
    Salem Harbor was a panel of glass, punctuated by empty moorings and the occasional duck or sea gull.   It was freaking tranquil at the Beach and not another soul was around.  There wasn't a wave in sight and the water at the shore's edge rested placidly in one place, hardly shifting.  A clam squirted a thin fountain of water out of the course sand and the ducks kept a safe distance from me as I advanced to their position.  Even the ugly power plant across the harbor seemed to be acceptable in the calmness.
    ~
    Obviously everybody else was too busy sitting around and farting on their own respective couches. 
    ~
    Not your MOAM though.   My horizons were getting broadened until nature's call had me hot stepping back to the house.  I guess you could say that I was moved, then interrupted by the need for a movement.

    Working Out Workouts

    So many of you Peeps have been asking me about my workouts at the Marblehead-Salem YMCA lately.... what's the big deal?   How can my workout routine be of any possible consequence to any of you???
    ~
    But I know that if I don't tell you, the whining and stupid annoying questions will keep up until they reach a roaring crescendo of mammothly irritating proportion.
    ~
    So here's what has been going on at the Y.
    ~
    At first the staff people were really nice and friendly to me.  Smiling and pretending to think my jokes and quips were funny and stuff.   But slowly their attitude has been changing to the point where they are now downright antagonistic and hostile.
    ~
    Peeps...  Is is my fault that their cheesy exercise machines can't keep up with my pace???  The treadmills are just too damn slow and the elliptical machines start to smoke and make funny noices after just a couple of hours on them.  And the bike pedals are all bent and twisted after just one Mountain of a Man pedal session.  Plus, they don't have enough weight on the barbells to give me any challenge whatsoever.
    ~
    So after just one morning workout, with the machines all bent, smoking and twisted, the Y staff gets all huffy and stuff. 
    ~
    So, being considerate to the feelings of others, I turned my attention to the pool for a little swimming workout.   The lifeguard seemed cheerful enough when I asked her for a lap lane to be assigned to me.
    ~
    Right off the bat, I get yelled at for using my signature cannonball entry into the pool.  Ms. Prissy Lifeguard didn't like a little splash coming her way it seemed.   Then, once I settle into my favorite stroke, the Australian Crawl, she starts all pointing and yelling at me.  I can't help it if my wake starts to wash everyone else to the side of the pool... and contrary to her curse words, those bubbles coming from my ass are not from farting.  It 's just the way the water courses past my body apertures and has nothing to do with internal gas.
    ~
    So there you have it.
    ~
    I can't workout with the machines, and have been banned from the pool.  And none if it is my fault.  Then, the people at the front desk whisper and snarl as I leave their precious YMCA.
    ~
    That's how my workouts are working out.

    POTW Week 49

    Peeps -
    That earthquake in Japan this week has me a little queasy.
    ~
    Edgar Cayce  predicted that Japan would fall into the sea, and the Mayans and Nostradamus are also chiming in dire  scenarios that involve dramatic geological palpitations.
    ~
    I'm not worried or anything.... but that hasn't stopped me from packing some beef jerky, canned peaches and cans of Diet Coke in the Columbia Herreshoff Tender.  I'm thinking that if the sea suddenly rises, I should have enough time to unhitch the boat from the trailer, break out the oars and float out the surge.
    ~
    And don't be trying to climb into my boat.  I've warned you, so go prep up your own.

    ANNOUNCING....
    Nanepashemet Peeps of the Week for the 49th Week of 2012.

    Even though you can't get in the boat, if I row by, I'll let you hold onto the side.  Kind of like Leonardo DiCaprio  in the Titanic Movie.

    You may have noticed that I have been trying to entice you with offerings for Nanepashemet to help you purchase land and build a new home for you.
    ~
    Very perceptive of you.
    ~
    It's not just that we are grubbing for business (which we are), it's also because we feel that real estate in this region is ready for a new surge. 
    ~
    This has nothing to do with Obama, or Fiscal Cliffs or anything political.  It has to do with the economic cycles that have naturally occured for decades in this country.  People get sick and tired of worrying and hunkering in, and start to spend and take risks.... and the economy starts upward.
    ~
    My own experience is that when a real estate  upswing is in full force, you have missed the boat.   The real winners are those who get it before the upswing is a newsworthy event.  Once people are rushing to buy, prices skyrocket.... which is a good thing if you get in now.
    ~
    So Peeps - these latest posts are really for your own economic well being.   Plus,... how cool would it be to do business with a Mountain of a Man???
