For The Lady Lurkers ( I know you are out there…)

I really like this song. Why? Because it has honesty in it.

Who is Lily Allen? How can she have had following on 3 continents? Well, let’s just say she had a moment in time. A Brit, near as I can tell, who “Made it” in America, Australia, and the UK. How? By singing what women were thinking, mostly.

For what it is worth, the Porter Wagoner show was a staple of the Country Western World when I was a kid (and a while there after).

In 1967, he introduced singer Dolly Parton on his television show, The Porter Wagoner Show. She became part of a well-known vocal duo with him from the late 1960s to the early 1970s.

Known as Mr. Grand Ole Opry, Wagoner charted 81 singles from 1954 to 1983. He was elected to the Country Music Hall of Fame in 2002.

So, yes, an alternate sub-title for this would be “blast from the past”. What, you kids out there (yes, I know some of you are out there too…) didn’t know Granny and Granddad had a wild youth too?

Oh, alternate title? “Well what made you think Country Folk were not horny, darlin’?”

At another time she did this one too:

Perhaps one ought to ‘look her up’ and find her stuff… It’s pretty contemporary in oh so many ways,

    She is a good singer and very smart, but she’s horribly woke.

  2. She is a big proponent of taking drastic action to curb the “climate emergency” whilst being involved in all those things that generate the carbon footprint of a thousand people. Definitely very woke but a good singer

    After her 3rd (or so) hit, she fell prey to the belief that she is some how important and understands politics, science, and the little people should do as they’re told.
    Pity as she started out so well. Definitely not in the same (musical) league as Dolly Parton

    I just judge a song (and the singer of it) as the song. Not with a political ruler.

    Maybe that’s wrong of me, but were I to reject every performer based on their non-performance activities I fear I’d be devoid of music….

    I use to have that philosophy. About not letting politics intrude on my likes. Until they got nasty. And hateful. Now? Sorry, get woke, go broke. I only watch movies pre 1980. I am not going to support jerks that want to “deprogram” me. Indeed, I just bought 2 WAPs from a non-Amazon source. I would have saved a few bucks (free shipping, list was the same), but sorry, I do not support those who want to deprogram me.

    “How Dare YOU!” (in my best little girl Ballsy-ford voice).

    “I just bought 2 WAPs from a non-Amazon source”

    What’s a WAP? If I do a search, the new slang dominates and I’m pretty sure that not even Amazon sells those.

  8. E.M.Smith says:

    Well, White Anglo-Saxon Protestant came to mind first, but ….

    I think it means Wireless Access Point (i.e. a home wifi router). Maybe…

  9. philjourdan says:

    @YMMV – sorry, forgot about that slut’s song. But EM is correct. Except I will call a router a router, but this is only a wireless access point (no routing involved).

  10. E.M.Smith says:

    Ah Hem!

    By definition, a wireless access point is at a minimum bridging a WiFi network segment and a wired one. That is most often achieved as different IP ranges, so routed.

    Just sayin’, your AP is probably also a (admittedly trivial…) minimal router too. Unless it is just using the same IP range as the wired side and bridging it and I’ve only seen that on WiFi extenders…

  11. philjourdan says:

    AHEM. Not any more. WAPs do bridge, but do not route. They accept the VLAN’s router assignments and shove them out for the WIFI clients. I specifically chose the bridge so that I would not have to come up with a bunch of different subnets for what is essentially the DMZ. Just replicated over a long building(for the Parishioners pleasure). The Church office is firewalled off,

    These things change faster than democrat cheating! It is the Netgear WAC104. It can do DHCP, but not routing as all its ports are in the same “vlan”. And a steal at $45 + Shipping and taxes

  12. philjourdan says:

    BTW: Thanks for allowing me to introduce some new tech? :-) Well, old tech, new application. I do read all of your tech blogs, but you are way over my head, so I read and learn.

  13. E.M.Smith says:

    Interesting. In their docs they do show pictures of it labeled “switch” which would be bridging.

    Not really seeing the benefit of that, but hey, it ought to be cheaper…

  14. philjourdan says:

    Benefit is conservation of IPs Subnets. We do not want to firewall off that WAP from the rest of the DMZ. We just need to extend the DMZ Wifi beyond the limits of WiFI. And this does it. Why complicate it with multiple DMZs?

    Extenders suck! As you get half the performance at best. But if you have a wire drop, add a WAP and go to town! Better performance and extended range
