    OAK BLUFFS (CBS) – A man is accused of going on a very strange crime spree on Martha’s Vineyard over the weekend. Oak Bluffs police say Felix Reagan committed a series of crimes that left a dog painted purple on Saturday afternoon. It all started when officers responded to Firehouse Lane for a report of a stolen motor vehicle that crashed, with the suspect fleeing on foot. About 5 to 10 minutes later, police were called to a Pinewood Lane house that had been broken into. A resident there said they arrived home to find a ground level window forced...

    Remember the special frock that Lady M donned to return to the prison of the White House last Sunday? It’s been driving me crazy. I knew it reminded me of something other than my Aunt Irene circa 1952 butt couldn’t quite put my finger on it. And then, while in sleep mode, it popped up on my server! It’s from the August 21, 2010 post, Big Guy, All Books, No Grapes. Sure enough, there she was, Lady M  play-acting the role of Imogene in Paper Moon.Imogene and Addie – Paper MoonIn case you don’t recall the movie it’s a 1973...

    Hillary Clinton dropped by the resort island of Martha’s Vineyard over the weekend to pick up more than $1 million in campaign contributions during an elegant party at the summer home of one of her most devoted supporters. Thirty people contributed $50,000 apiece to attend the Saturday night function at the home of Lynn Forester de Rothschild, a wealthy investment manager so committed to Clinton that she couldn’t bring herself to vote for then-Sen. Barack Obama after he defeated her candidate in 2008. President Obama and First Lady Michelle Obama were on the island at the time of the Saturday...

    Democratic Presidential Nominee Hillary Clinton is getting ready to celebrate her husband’s 70th birthday this evening on Martha’s Vineyard, according to a Clinton aide speaking to CNN. Obama is also vacationing on the island, although it is unclear whether he and Michelle Obama plan to join the Clintons for the momentous occasion. Clinton’s trip coincides with Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump’s visit to Louisiana to highlight the suffering of local citizens after the state was hit by unprecedented flooding in the area.

    In case you missed it, Louisiana is underwater and currently experiencing the worst natural disaster since Hurricane Sandy in 2012. Before Sandy, the worst natural disaster was Hurricane Katrina in 2005. Thirteen people in Louisiana are dead, thousands are displaced and nearly 90,000 people have registered for federal disaster aid. From the Red Cross: The devastating flooding in Louisiana has forced thousands of people from their homes with just the few things they could take with them. The American Red Cross is there, providing food, shelter and relief supplies to those affected by the largest natural disaster to hit the United...

Try seven rounds of golf (so far), 5 nights out (Sunday Down Island, Tuesday State Road, Friday L'etoile, Saturday Red Cat Kitchen, Sunday Lola's) and a fundraiser for his heir apparent: The President said while the first lady is strict about him actually taking a vacation when they are on vacation, he was there because it is “absolutely critical that we have a capable, hardworking, diligent, smart, tenacious leader in the Oval Office.”“I ain’t no ways tired” And now this breaking news from the Gateway Pundit: Exhausted Hillary Is Taking...

We rolled up the carpets and everyone boogied down till the sun came up. And while there was no sit-down dinner, don’t worry; there were enough “snacks” to feed all the starving children in America as well as the rest of the world - for a year. Butt as you know, no pictures. The most transparent administration ever is wrapping up their last year the same way they started: no outsiders, no photographers, no press, and no social media...

[*alchemy - a seemingly magical process of transformation, creation, or combination. It was concerned particularly with attempts to convert base metals into gold.] It was a quiet dinner with some of the folks (Eric Holder and his wife, National Security Advisor...
