Hunting Hitler Season 3 – Preview

I must say folks that season 3 is a total disappointment.  If you watched season 1 & 2 they investigated Hitler leaving Berlin by airplane on a special airport which was a converted roadway.  Then flying to Spain and getting on  a submarine and going to South America, Venezuela and other countries in the area.  They even found a lady who saw a submarine off the coast and they were in the process of finding some submarines.  They found several places where Hitler lived and many people who say him in the area.  They even talked about Hitler creating a new Fourth Reich with all his buddies who escaped with him.  This whole series makes Dwight Eisenhower look like a fool.  Remember Dwight was the top general and his command let Hitler and his boys escape.  Maybe Dwight was to busy wanting to be the Republican president.

Now season 3 is starting all over and not even close to season 1 & 2 , which is the huge disappointment because we thought 3 would be a continuation of 1 & 2, but its NOT!!  It’s like starting over completely different escape routes by Hitler and his gang of murders.  So this says to me “If you watched season 1 & 2 you completely wasted your time because it was all wrong!”.  Season 3 has already gone off track by looking to prove Hitler was working on a “H Bomb” which everyone already knows he was working on so more wasting of time on old news.  Maybe Bob Baer needs the money, but as far as I am concerned I held Bob very high on my good guy list and now we took him off the list.  Season 3 they are looking at a northern and southern route as Hitlers escape route, throwing out the flight out of Berlin as in 1 & 2.

So we are removing “Hunting Hitler” on our “be sure to watch” list.  The only reason we got interested is because its on after The Curse of Oak Island series which we never miss.  We admit that season 1 & 2 did get our interest only to have it shattered in season 3.  Do you care about where the heavy water is?  We don’t!  The entire US Army and government knew that Hitler was working on a special “atomic bomb” back in 1945 so season 3 is wasting your time with crap information, except if your looking to build one yourself then the information might be helpful.  Hey Bob!  Did you ever think you might me helping shady people how to make a bomb? They already told how to make “heavy water”.

So folks how about Oak Island?  Great stuff huh?  Do you think they have found the vault?  We are on edge every week.  As far as the Hunting Hitler series goes, we are disconnecting from following.  Maybe later when they finally get to South America we will watch again, but not anytime soon.  This is easily our disappointment of this season.

So folks we have nothing else to add at this time except we see that “mayhem” is back on the Allstate commercial.

Quit Smoking the Easy Way Part 1 (2018 New Year Resolution)

xsmokingI am happy to report that January marks 5 years since I last smoked a cigarette. An accomplishment I am very proud of and I am going to share with others who are attempting to quit smoking but struggling with the task. So if you are a non-smoker you might move on to another site, but then again you might wish to share this site to someone you know that is attempting to quit smoking.
I found that when I decided to quit, created the intention to quit smoking, and focused on the task at hand the solutions came my way quickly.

I was smoking one pack a day at the time, and I was going though a severe chest cold which seemed to a fairly regular event at back then. I also had been smoking for over five decades, yes folks, more than fifty years without ever seriously attempting to quit. So here is my solution to quitting which turned out to be easier than expected.

First I met a doctor that had organized a group of folks that under her supervision had quit smoking using a medication named Wellbutrin. The instructions were one pill a day for three days and then start with two pills a day and continue to smoke. When the third day arrived I had already cut down from 20 to 15 cigarettes a day. I found that I had a reaction to taking the second pill and the doctor said to just stay with the one a day. Within 10 days I was at 3 cigarettes a day and seemed to get stuck at three.

Then one day I was on my Facebook page when I saw a symbol on the right side that was a cigarette with a red crossed “X” over it. I stared at the symbol because I never click on those “pages you need to visit” symbols, but I went with a gut feeling and clicked on it. I then went to a page about quitting smoking by Alan Carr and it led me to a PDF download of a book named “The Easy Way to Stop Smoking” written by Alan Carr in 1985. I downloaded the file and read the book in one sitting. I have not smoked a cigarette since completing the book. (Thank you Allen)

What this book did for me was to point out that all the thoughts about why I liked smoking or why that cigarette with a cup of coffee first thing in the morning tasted so good, or yeah there is a chance of getting cancer, but not me, etc. The answer is those thoughts are coming from your ADDICTION! Yes your addiction is pointing out how much you enjoy smoking and how special you are for smoking without any issues and of course you are so special that cancer is not an option.

So the actual quitting was easy. I found the tough part was about 2-3 weeks later when I felt an urge for a cigarette when a situation occurred that when I was smoking, would smoke a cigarette. I have talked with other people who said this was the part that when they felt some stress, they automatically went back to smoking thinking they would attempt to quit at a later date. My though was “I did not quit smoking to go right back to it!” So what I did was I immediately noticed the situation that was causing the urge and then stopped what I was doing. I sat down and started a simple meditation where I focused on my in and out breath knowing that the urge would pass in about 20 seconds. Sure enough, it did and the next time the same situation came up the urge was non-existent. I did this ever time I had the smoking urge and eventually it was a rare event.

These days focusing on your breathing during a meditation is called “Mindfulness Meditation” and classes on how to do Mindfulness Mediation are being offered by most hospitals across the country (For a fee). If you are luck enough to live in or near Redwood City California the Insight Meditation Center offers classes for free (Donations are accepted). Check their web site for more information

If you are interested in on-line classes here is a link to the Google Mindfulness online course, yes folks, Goggle has a course on mindfulness and from what we understand they support their employees in using this method to meditate. You even get a certificate when you complete the course.

The 75th Golden Globe Awards – 2018

The Golden Globes is our favorite “award” show because its more of a celebration of the free press and the entertainment industry.  We celebrate the press everyday because they bring us the truth in the news they report daily at all levels.  Or president (Lower case on purpose) says it fake news, but since whats his name is a fake president we consider the source.

Tonight was a celebration of the Women!  From the fist moment to the end of the show, the powerful women were praising all the women in history who choose to speak their truth even when it might place them in peril.

I have been saying for years that we need women to take over this country because in 200 years the men have totally messed it up.  Look at the corruption in politics, and the guy at the top is an embarrassment that other countries laugh at. The “new” Womens Moment (Revolution) started gathering energy decades ago, but it took the guts of some real women heroes to bring the mens harassment, abuse, and overall degrading treatment of women by men to the current news screen.   We hope tonight is the “kick-off” of the moment taking charge and making changes for a better world.  Yes world, because its not just a USA issue, its a world issue.  Some of the other countries “get it”, they have women leaders. Maybe women have been to nice?  If they would just stop and think they would know that if they want change they have four words that could make it happen immediately. The words are “I have a headache”. Followed by “If you touch me I will call 911!” They have the power just as everyone does, but we want and will support then in anyway we can.

The highlight was Oprah getting the Cecil B De-mill Award and we have followed Oprah back in the days in Chicago when she was a cub reporter.   She brought her awesome power with her tonight and put forth an eye opening speech that had us cheering while we watched.  Oprah spread her power around and tonight she shared it with the world.  Yes the room was filled with powerful women and men and she brought forth what her prediction that its time to make the corrupt accountable and women will lead the way.  It was a beautiful moment and all the attendees cheered.  Our conclusion to all this is we think that Oprah should be our next President and her Vice President should be Michele Obama.  Two of the most powerful women in the USA.  They would make it happen and we would be a far better country for it.

We have nothing else to report except that we hope all of our great followers are using the meditations we have been posting.  We are listening to a Crown Chakra video as we place our words on this post.  Followed by Uptown Funk by Bruno Mars (Ellen Show)

Happy New Year 2018 from the AlAboutNothing Team

The team at AAN wishes everyone out there in cyberland a very Happy New Year 2018 and since the Mayan prediction was wrong and the world did not end on December 21st, 2012 and we were moving right along and then a bunch of dumb asses elected the biggest dumb ass of them all as POTUS and set us back 100 years.

Something we do annually is a “New Year wish” list, but instead of listing of several items, we poll all the team members for one line.  We then submit all the answers and then take a vote.  The winner this year comes from a slogan used in years gone by and it is:

Follow your dream!  Let NOTHING get in your way.

We have nothing else to add except once again, Happy New Year and stay safe.  We also want to thank everyone for visiting this site and we send blessings out to all.

For those on dating sites that have not met the person they are chatting with – NEVER GIVE OUT FINANCIAL INFO or SEND CASH even if you think you know them, BECAUSE YOU DON’T.

Beer Belly Karma

The people who have known me my entire adult life as 6′ tall 150 lbs. 32″ waist, I was so skinny that when I had hair curled and turn sideways my x-mother-in-law gave me the nickname of “Q-Tip”.

When going out with friends we used to go out to the bars and when we saw a guy with a beer belly we used to crack jokes like “His belly is so big, he had to have a strap of Velcro surgically implanted so he could keep his pants up!”  or “He had a bar of lead implanted in his ass so he would not fall forward for the weight of that enormous belly!”. In those days of hitting the bars in the Lincoln Park section of Chicago there were plenty of beer belly dudes that provided us with hours of laughter.

Then five years ago when I quit smoking food started tasting great.  Most people think that when you  quit smoking you turn to food to replace the cigarettes, and some probably do but not me.  Every piece of food tasted like a feast the most delicious tid-bit.  After six months to celebrate quitting smoking we went to “Sundance – The Steakhouse” in Palo alto.  I all my years of looking for the finest steak, this is where it was found.  we have been here before and we thought it was awesome, but now that food was tasting great, we wanted to go back and the meal was beyond awesome.  It verged on being a orgasmic experience and when we were done I wanted to smoke, but instead I did my Mindfulness Meditation to get past the urge to smoke.  Yes folks, everything tasted better even my favorite junk foods like Gold Fish, Lays Potato Chips (Original), M&M’s, Cheeto’s, Doorito’s, and Frosted Flakes became my go to breakfast food.

The 32″ waist is now 36″. Yes the Karma kicked in and we needed a new wardrobe.  No Velcro or lead bar, but the belt is now one of those that is easily sized.  I tell my friends that I look like I am pregnant, we even got one of those maternity T-Shirts with the arrow pointing down.  Its our way of bringing smiles when walking down the street.

So to all those beer belly guys we made fun of back in the day, we apologize for the comments, and we thank you for the laughs.  There is one beer belly we still make fun of, not because of his belly, its because he is the moron running our country.  His side silhouette is hilarious.

We have nothing else to report except our dating site scam tip is “If the lady is telling you that she is on a mission with UNICEF overseas somewhere in Africa” then lock down your wallet, because she is about to ask you for food money “because she is getting sick from the food provided and needs to buy different food and because she is a volunteer she does not get paid until she gets back home”

Got it! Scam!  Oh you say, “I will send you a check.”, she says, “No, it has to be cash”, so you say “I will FedEx it to you.”,  she says, “No FedEx here, you need to do a bank transfer to my bank account”.  If you do what she says the get ready to be wiped out of your retirement, savings account, and lose your house, wife, kids, car, motorcycle, your girl friend, your mistress, your membership to the country club, and KKK, and everything you have worked for your entire life.  The good news is you can still be a Trump supporter.

Think about it, you are chatting to what you think is a little cutie telling you that you are handsome and sexy, she is sending you sexy pictures, and tells you that as soon as she gets back you will meet and the sparks will fly. In reality you are talking to a guy is a sweat shop somewhere in the world that when he asks you a sexual question and you answer he sends your response to the big screen in the room and everyone laughs at you. Is it worth it?

To all our new followers and soon to be new followers we say Namaste and we hope you get a laugh or two from our posts.  We thank you for staying with us during the good times and the not so good times, which are good times, because this is where we learn and grow. We grateful for everyone and everything in this awesome universe we are all part of.

The nothing staff wishes all says thank you!

American Airlines Flight 1366 – DFW to Memphis – 2010 Revisited

Over this Christmas holiday I was one of the travelers who took advantage of the low airfares on priceline.com.  I booked a round trip ticket from Memphis TN to San Jose CA and started the trip on United Airlines and the return was on American Airlines (AA).

To begin the United flight had a connection in Denver, which I normally avoid during the winter months, but this trip went great. I arrived on time and spent a great week with my family.

On my return to Memphis, the first leg of the AA flight to Dallas/Fort Worth (DFW) went fine.  We arrived on time at gate 18 at DFW.  I checked the screen for Flight 1366 and it showed the gate to be A17.  I thought “Great!  I only needed to walk about 20 feet for the connecting flight.”  Because I have taken several (hundred) flights over the years, I know that because DFW is a very large airport and if your connecting gate is in a different terminal it might take awhile to get there.  I also know that at DFW if you need to get to a different terminal they have a “Sky Link” shuttle train that runs between terminals because of the lengthy distance.

So I am sitting at Gate A17 waiting for the next flight and after about 15-20 minutes the desk attendant announced that the flight that was scheduled for a 4:45 PM departure was going to be delayed until 5:35 PM and the Gate has been changed to C27.  That’s it, nothing else was said.  Now this is where my experience at DFW came into play.  I knew I need to simply take the “Sky Link” Shuttle to get there in a timely manner.  The delay was no big deal, but I think the AA Desk Attendant should have given instructions to the other passengers as to what would be the best way to get to the C27 Gate which was very far away.  I would guess that at least 80% of the passengers on the flight were first time flyers and they had no clue other than walking to get to Gate C27.  I estimate that the walking distance from Gate A18 to C27 is about a mile. Even though Terminal C is right next to A, a person would have to leave A17 and proceed to A39 (22 Gates), then cross a walkway from A to C and then continue on to Gate C27 (27 Gates).  Keep in mind this is not a straight line walk, the terminals are curved so a 48 Gate walk is quite a long walk.

When I arrived at Gate C27 I talked to a few of the other passengers and found out that one lady was originally scheduled to take a flight to Memphis at around 2 PM and her flight was cancelled and she was moved to Flight 1366 for the 4:45 PM departure and now that was changed to 5:35 PM so she had been waiting around for about 3 hours.  Then I talked with a young fellow escorting his mother and he told me that his mother needed help to walk.  She was good for a short distance, but long distance was a problem.  He said that on this gate change he got lucky and when they were starting to walk from Gate A17 to C27 he noticed the “Sky Link” sign and asked another passenger what it was.  That is how they made the gate change, and that was a strain on his mother because of the walk.  I told him that if at Memphis he needs assistance for his mother to ask the AA attendant to call for either a wheelchair or for one of those special “Golf Cart” like vehicles for assistance for his mother.  This is my point folks, all these “special” assistance services are available in probably all airports but the passenger must ask the airline attendant or look up the services on the web for a particular airport.  I would think that over holidays when most of the travelers are either first time flyers or people who rarely fly, the airlines would volunteer the information to the passengers when a special circumstance comes in to play.  In this case the American Airline people were mute.

One more final tidbit of information is that when I was waiting at C27 I called an AAN team member that is in the aviation industry and asked him to find out what was going on.  He got back to me and said that flight 1366 originated in Phoenix and arrived at DFW on time and was at the airport a good 40 minutes when we arrived from San Jose.  He surmised that AA needed the plane for something else and did not know anything else.

To wrap up, we did leave at 5:35 PM and arrived in Memphis at approximately 7:00 PM.

I really did not appreciate the “games” American Airlines were playing.  What I think they did was cancelled the 2 PM flight because it wasn’t full and moved those passengers to the 1366 Flight at what was suppose to be a 4:45 PM departure.  Then when this flight wasn’t full, they delayed the flight to 5:35 PM.  AA obviously did not care about the inconvenience to the passengers after the long holiday and decided that their needs came before passengers.

The next time you get the spiel where the pilot thanks you for flying their airline because of all the choices you have, keep in mind that American Airlines really doesn’t care.  American Airlines has gone from the top of my list to the bottom as far as choices for airline travel.  To you folks  out there in cyber land remember that if you need help, just ask.

I have nothing further to add at this time except for you to remember fly AA if you like misery.
