We have some great speakers lined up for the summer series, so be sure not to miss a single one! These events are held at the Innis Arden Clubhouse. Refreshments are served at 6:30 and meetings begin at 7:00.
Please join us next Tuesday, June 21st (not Thursday this month), to hear State Auditor Brian Sonntag speak. Sonntag is a very humorous and engaging speaker (most accountants and auditors are like that, right?), and you will definitely enjoy this event. Please bring a friend – they won’t be disappointed!

One of my liberal friends posted this on Facebook. Thanks Sheila!
This unusual recording contains two tracks:
1. The natural sound of crickets chirping
2. The sound of the crickets slowed down to match and mirror the length of the average lifespan of a human being.
The angelic chorus you hear accompanying the sound of the crickets is NOT a synthesizer or a chorus singing. It’s the crickets themselves (slowed down) creating the effect.
This gives me shivers! I had my sound engineer son verify. It’s for real.
Thank you Linda! Here is a Nightline Report on new face recognition software used on every single picture posted on Facebook, to be saved forever. This demonstrates how the software works, how your face (or your family or friends) can be picked out elsewhere in a crowd.
I received this email today:
On Monday, I played the Disney, Lake Buena Vista course. As usual the starters matched me with three other players. After a few holes we began to get to know each other a bit. One fellow was rather young and had his wife riding along in the golf cart with him. I noticed that his golf bag had his name on it and after closer inspection, it also said “wounded war veterans”.

When I asked more about his injury, his response was “I’d rather not talk about it, sir”. Read more »

I was instrumental in establishing the Israeli National Skin Bank, which is the largest in the world. The National Skin Bank stores skin for everyday needs as well as for war time or mass casualty situations.
This skin bank is hosted at the Hadassah Ein Kerem University hospital in Jerusalem where I was the Chairman of plastic surgery. This is how I was asked to supply skin for an Arab woman from Gaza , who was hospitalized in Soroka Hospital in Beersheva, after her family burned her. Usually, such atrocities happen among Arab families when the women are suspected of having an affair. Read more »
….for a song he wrote and played. Read about Bryan Glover.
From the Washington Examiner:
Members of a Service Employees International Union (SEIU) chapter in Los Angeles turned out arm-in-arm with members of assorted Communist Party and socialist groups last month for their annual May Day demonstration.
If that sentence strikes you as jarring, be forewarned that the photo-essay reporting the demonstration by Southern California citizen-journalist Ringo will quite possibly make your head spin.…
Some important qualifiers are in order here: Police estimated the crowd at about 10,000, while Ringo put it at 4,000, so this clearly represents the fringe of the fringe on the Left. Still, the photographs speak for themselves. And suggest some very troubling questions about SEIU. Read more »
