The wunderblogs Last Stand

By: Patrap , 2:34 AM GMT on March 03, 2017

WunderBlog's last Stand'

It was an April 3rd morning when they told us we should go
As I turn to Nea, you smiled at me
How could we say no?

With all the fun to have, to live the dreams we always had
Oh, the comments to sing, when we at last return again

Sending off a glancing post, to those who claim they know
Below the streets that steam and hiss,
The CO-2' is from the coal'

Oh to sail away, To sandy lands and other entries'
Oh to touch the dream, Hides inside and never seen.

Into the sun the south the north, at last the GOES have flown
The shackles of wu's commitment fell, In pieces on the ground

Oh to ride the wind, To tread the air above the din
Oh to laugh aloud, Dancing as we fought the crowd

To seek the man whose pointing hand, The giant Hockey stick unfolds
With guidance from the curving path, That churns up into stone

If one bell should ring, in celebration for a king
So fast the heart should beat, As proud the head with heavy feet.

Days went by when you and I, blogged in eternal summers glow
As far away and distant, Our mutual child did grow

Oh the sweet refrain, Soothes the soul and calms the pain
Oh Albion remains, sleeping now to rise again

Wandering & wandering, What place to rest the search

The mighty arms of Master's, Holds the CO2 Denier's from the Earth

The mighty arms of Ricky Rood, Hold the CO2 Denier's from the Earth
From the Earth...

I know the way, know the way, know the way, know the way [X2]

Oh the mighty arms of WU, Hold the heavens from the Earth.








Patrap P' is the name
And I served on the wunderblog train
'Till IBM's's cavalry came
And tore up the blogs again

In the winter of '17
We were the blogs, just barely alive
By March the 10th, the main blog had fell
It's a time I remember, oh so well

The night they drove the wunderblogs down
And the bells were ringing
The night they drove the wunderblogs down
And the people were singing
They went, "Na, na, la, na, na, na"

Back with my wife in New Orleans
When one day she called to me
Said "Patrick, quick, come see,
There goes the Dr. from wu you see!"

Now, I don't mind blogging wood
And I don't care if the comment's no good
You take what you need
And you leave the rest
But they should never
Have taken the very best

The night they drove the wunderblogs down
And the bells were ringing
The night they drove the wunderblogs down
And all the people were singing
They went, "Na, na, la, na, na, na"

Would it be too much to ask people to pull their weather stations offline for a week or three?

No blogs. No more WU photos. How bought no free data to the Volgons.

I had the opportunity to see Levon at his house in New York performing at one of his Midnight Rambles. Definitely one the musical highlights of my life. Twenty foot away.

That Zeppelin knock-off is pretty spot on. Great job! (And thanks for name dropping me in the first stanza!) Yeah, things do seem like:



But, still, I'm not ready to let go of the handlebars just yet. I've been a longtime member of a lot of different Disqus forums, and while some things will definitely be lost, other things will be gained, (He says with fingers crossed.)

.And thanks to you and your wit and wisdom as well chi'...


Oh, let the sun beat down upon my face
And stars to fill my dream
I'm a traveler of both time and space
To be where I have been
To sit with elders of the gentle race
This world has seldom seen
They talk of days for which they sit and wait
when All will be revealed

The past is the now as the future was yesterday.

ValleyForge has seen the Landlords.

They come for communion, not battle.

The old one will set the course for Mankind.

He has left the path long ago.

The Earth as you call it is much more than a Home for you.

Arrogance is not a endearing quality for a Higher being.

It is with a heavy Heart that we at Portlight are sad to report the passing of a true New Orleans Legend and Entertainer.
Midge Jones passed away and we were informed just now by His good friend Claire Hartley Grogan. I met and shared a few days with Him after this entry from 2013. I will always think of the people He moved and smiled with. A life well lived and a True American Gentleman.

Fair Winds Midge.

You will be fondly remembered by thousands Sir.

Hi Pat~ Thanks for yet another perfect tune and lyrics to post that reflects the closing of our individual WU blogs!

I found another old tune (with some parodied lyrics of my own) that seem to also mimic both our lot in life here on WU and sometimes life in general.



Big Yellow (WU) Taxi
Joni Mitchell,



They paved paradise
And put up a parking lot
With a smaller website, one blog
...a dwindling hot spot!
Don't it always seem to go
That you don't know what you've got
'Till it's gone
They paved paradise
And put up a parking lot

They took all the (BLOGS)
And put them in a (BLOG MUSEUM)
And they'll charge all the people
(Quite some dollars) just to see 'em
Don't it always seem to go
That you don't know what you've got
'Till it's gone
They paved paradise
And they put up a parking lot


Hey (blogger, blogger)
Put away that D.D.T. now
(We've got new blogs on Flickr, Disqus,
And the New Ark, please go see 'em)
Please!!!!!
Don't it always seem to go
That you don't know what you've got
'Till it's gone
They paved paradise
And put up a parking lot


Late last night
I heard the screen door slam
And a big (corporate giant)
Took away my (WU fans)
Don't it always seem to go
That you don't know what you've got
'Till it's gone
They paved paradise
And put up a parking lot

Don't it always seem to go
That you don't know what you've got
'Till it's gone
They paved paradise
Put up a parking lot

They paved paradise
And put up a parking lot

They paved paradise
Put up a parking lot


Songwriters: Joni Mitchell

Days slow by my window
World slows down as it goes
Goodbye to last night
Lost my eyesight

Can't you help me see?
They won't get right

Loving every minute 'cause you make me feel so alive, alive
Loving every minute 'cause you make me feel so alive, alive
Alive, alive

Waking in the snow
Tracing steps with you
Swimming through the snow
Wrapped in blow we go

Can't you help me see?
They won't get right

Loving every minute 'cause you make me feel so alive, alive
Loving every minute 'cause you make me feel so alive, alive
Alive, alive

Can you describe to me
All the world that you see?
Oh, I need it so much
I'm just waiting

Freedom is within you
Giving makes us feel good
Hello to more people
Say hello to the future

Freedom is within you
Giving makes us feel good
Hello to more people
Say hello to the future

Loving every minute 'cause you make me feel so alive, alive
Loving every minute 'cause you make me feel so alive, alive
Alive, alive

Loving every minute 'cause you make me feel so alive, alive
Loving every minute 'cause you make me feel so alive, alive
Alive, alive

Quoting 132. no1der:

Trump’s budget calls for seismic disruption in medical and science research
"a budget that takes a sharp bite out of some programs and kills others outright. Those targeted for termination include an EPA program to clean up the Cheseapeake Bay, the accident-investigating Chemical Safety Board, and a NASA satellite program (long ago known as the GoreSat, after the idea was promoted by then-Vice President Al Gore) that monitors solar storms and Earth’s climate."
"The blueprint does not mention the National Science Foundation, which provides more than $7 billion annually in grants. That may fall under the category of “other agencies,” which are not detailed but which the blueprint puts down for a 9.8 percent cut."
"The Department of Energy’s Office of Science would see a $900 million cut. The administration is asking for cuts to a program devoted to energy efficiency and renewable energy. Targeted for elimination is the Advanced Research Projects Agency-Energy (ARPA-E), which underwrites innovations in biofuels and batteries."

Thank you for the kind words and if I did my homework right, you have done over 2 hours of parabola's in France? Now thats a cool thing as in all my 57 years, all I ever wanted was one orbital flight to experience zero G. As a child of Mercury, Gemini, and Apollo, yes indeed.

I'll be still posting in the CAT6 entry or Masters & Hensons blog here .

Thanks again!

First time on your blog, mostly see you on what is now Cat 6. Hope to still see you there. Joined PCroton's folks who have set up a FB page. He will be posting his analyses on twitter which I enjoy.

To answer your questions I suppose we owe the 217 trillion to each other. Engaged in a Ponzi scheme we do not fully understand.
