Today is the day that Lord Jaysus Powell, aka JP III, will stand before the assembled multitudes and announce how fast he intends to kill the bulls. It will be slaughter of the most unimaginable magnitude. Only the rate is in question.
Meanwhile today is the day I pick up my Polish Temporary Residence card, another waystation on my way to ultimately reside in the South of France, which I plan to make happen later this winter if all goes well.
You might think that my living in Poland is a bit funny, but I love a bargain, and this country is hands down, the greatest bargain in Europe. If you are on a budget, and want the full European experience for less than it costs to stay home in the US, come here. Just don’t come in the fucking wintertime, or November, December, or any month that doesn’t end in June, July, August, and September. First couple weeks of October aren’t bad either.
It has been about 7 weeks since I have seen the sun, partly because it is always cloudy, foggy, smoggy, and partly because it gets dark at 3:30 PM.
Onward to Nice, where the sun shines almost every day! And its reflection off the shimmering Mediterranean makes it feel 10 degrees warmer than it is.
In honor of my stay here, where I have met nothing but very smart, very kind people, excluding the retail store clerks and the security guard at my building, I present the following.

OK, I get the joke, but think about this. Copernicus was from here. Chopin was from here. Taddeus Kosciusko and Casimir Pulaski were from here. John Paul 2 We Love You, was from here. Lech Walesa (Vawensa) was of course from here, Madame Marie Sklodowska Curie was from here. Roman Polanski was from here, OK so he’s a pedo but… the great pianist composer Paderewski was from here. Admiral Rickover was from here (from my ancestral hometown).
My grandfather and grandmother were from here and Robert Lewandowski is from here.
And lest we forget the great Chuck Bednarik who’s not from here. He’s of Slovak descent. 😄😄😄 But another Eagles great, Ron “Jaws” Jaworski is of Polish descent. [For the uninitiated, I’m a Philly guy. First and always. Yo!]
Meanwhile, the reason we are here…
Why are we here, anyway?
Above 4650 we’re going up. Below 4607, we’re going down. In between that, nothing has happened yet.
And now, we wait for the Lord Jaysus’s 18th Coming.
Meanwhile, the big picture.
