Governor Cuomo issues a very bad line item veto! (MEDIA REPORTS INCORRECT, APPROPRIATION NOT VETOED)

CORRECTION!

The media got it wrong. I have just learned that it was a different onion approp that was vetoed. The $50K remains. My sincere & humble apologies to Governor Cuomo!

Original post follows:

One of the items that Governor Andrew Cuomo has vetoed was the $50,000 for onion research. Growers in the state are utterly saddened and dismayed by this. Attached is an old piece I wrote about this appropriation many years ago that explains the purpose of this investment and the value of it. The Governor’s veto has not only hurt farmers but also Cornell University researchers.

Sad, very sad to see. It appears that Governor Cuomo has limited concern for upstate residents of this state.

More pictures of the 2014 season (part 4)

This post concludes the 2014 growing season in pictures. Once we finished packing and selling our onions we moved on to field work and finishing insulating our barn.

Please enjoy the pics:

Nalan, who looks exactly like Hungarian porn star Eva Angel, now knows I’m a time traveler with temporal issues

Here is my 4th reply to Nalan … enjoy!

Dearest Nalan,

First, thank you for sending me the new pics as well as the minutia of certain aspects of your existence.
My first question … are you cooking onion in the one picture? I sincerely hope so. They are extremely good for your digestive system!
You live with mom and dad? No way! Anton I hope never calls Gika a dingbat or threatens to send her to the moon!
Money is not the most important aspect of life. Though it is quite important, according to the British philosopher Pink Floyd. As Mr. Floyd once said:
Money it’s a gas
Grab that cash with both hands and make a stash
New car, caviar, four star daydream,
Think I’ll buy me a football team
Money get back
I’m all right Jack keep your hands off my stack.
What do you think about that poetry?
If you were to climb into a mailbox that has to be a pretty big mailbox … like this:
mail-theo
That one you could fit in for sure!
You concluded your e-mail by asking:
For what purpose do you start dating on the web to me? You just want to be friends or looking for your soul mate? I’m tired of being lonely and looking for a serious relationship, I dream of a good family with good loving husband, a reliable partner in life. Maybe I want too much? But I still believe in love. I want you to trust me and I think that we should be honest with each other. I’m waiting for answers to my questions. This concludes the letter. It is waiting for your answer.
First, you contacted me! Second, I too believe people should be honest between each other. I especially appreciate honesty from internet suitors that look remarkably similar to hot Hungarian porn stars! But … I digress. Why am I continuing to speak with you? Remember in my last e-mail when I said this:
Currently I am working on a very important/special project. You see, I fear that our entire planet and existence on planet earth is threatened by a dangerous temporal anomaly! You see, time travel research must take place so that centuries down the road we have trained time traveling soldiers and technicians who can deal with any threats to our current time line. To do this time travel research needs to be funded now. I firmly believe that I am the person that funds it. But I am currently broke. I needs funds to do this. So I am pleading with legitimate time travelers to get to me winning Powerball numbers, so I can amass a huge fortune and fund time travel research. This isn’t about me getting rich, this is about protecting the timeline and humanity being the dominant life form on the planet.
Well, here is the honest truth. I really am a time traveler. Here are pictures of me suiting up and prepping to engage in a temporal jump:
IMG_20140707_090446 IMG_20140707_090539 IMG_20140707_091432
When you successfully return from a time jump you typically land on the top of Ford Bronco:
IMG_20140705_152952
I am currently stuck in a very dangerous temporal paradox that threatens all of mankind … not just now but in the past and thousands of years in the future. You see, though I am currently making jumps in time, time travel research has not been funded now. That means with a lack of funding time travel research will not take place and not lead to the creation of the “Titor Device:
Do you get the import of this? I am in a loop and I cannot escape.
Further, I am now dealing with ravenous creatures from the Beta Quadrant. They are from our time but a number of parsecs away. They feed on human flesh, and Cheetos. They pose an incredible treat as well.
Do you know hand to hand combat and can you twerk? The twerking has nothing to do with this other stuff … just curious.
Please reply with what weapons and hand to hand combat training you have and how much working capital you currently posses and can obtain in the near future? Can you obtain technology that will allow you to scramble future transmissions? The National Security Agency has been compromised and is aware of some of these activities.
The following is a coded transmission for my friends in the resistance:
Lavender Blue, Dilly Dilly
Gordie Howe with the hat trick
Silly rabbit, tricks are for kids
If I kill all the golfers they will lock me up and throw away the key
To the Batcave
End of coded transmission
Anxiously awaiting your response!

Nalan replies again … sending me even more pictures of Eva Angel!

Here it is … my reply will be posted shortly!

Subject: Hello!
Hello! I’m so glad to see that you have written to me! It was very
nice to see from you. I think we will have a long acquaintance. I have
a feeling that I was drawn to your letters. Do you have the same
feeling? I thought a lot about you, and decided that perhaps you can
trust. Today I want to tell you about my family. My father – his name
is Anton, his 63 and he was in the military. Now my father retired, he
was a war all my life. My mother’s name is Gika – her 57 years, she is
now retired, and is engaged in household chores. All her life she
worked on the farm, because he loves animals. I love and respect my
parents. As a child, I, like all children to attend school. I liked at
school, so how could I learn something new. I finished the 11th grade
with honors, receiving a gold medal for academic success. I live with
my parents, and I have my own room. Sometimes I want to have to find a
man and start privacy. So how to live with their parents well, but I
want more freedom. I always have an opinion, and to achieve the very
most. Now look back at that time and I understand that in addition to
the difficulties and hardships life taught me a lot – be independent,
just to achieve in life itself. I’m not one to rely! So I was a good
student, which gave me a chance to go to university itself. I was
educated teacher, so I now work in a profession. A lot of effort spent
on it to learn English, but to me it still needs to improve. Now I
have an interesting job and I am self-sufficient in itself. In the
West, for some reason, there is a misconception that all girls tend to
marry a foreigner because of the money. As if the money – it’s the
most important thing in life. I wonder what you think about this? You
know, I now sorely lacking an understanding person who could hear me
and understand what I feel. I have had a relationship with the guys,
but unfortunately, most of my fans was only sex. They saw me as just
an attractive figure, and no one wanted to know what is in my heart.
As soon as someone I trusted and hoped I changed and broken heart.
That’s why I decided to communicate via the Internet. Perhaps through
correspondence will be able to better understand the man. I am very
glad that you came into my life. I find it interesting to talk to you,
I would climb into your mailbox to read your messages. Tell me,
please, and you have had a relationship with the girls? For what
purpose do you start dating on the web to me? You just want to be
friends or looking for your soul mate? I’m tired of being lonely and
looking for a serious relationship, I dream of a good family with good
loving husband, a reliable partner in life. Maybe I want too much? But
I still believe in love. I want you to trust me and I think that we
should be honest with each other. I’m waiting for answers to my
questions. This concludes the letter. It is waiting for your answer.

Hi Nalan,

 
Wow, that was a fast response!
 
That is an interesting school you went to! Pushkin is the name of a character in the James Bond movies. He replaces General Gogol as head of the KGB. Here is the Wiki entry: http://jamesbond.wikia.com/wiki/General_Pushkin
 
I too learned such English words when I first went to school, including table, chair and dog. My first word I ever spoke was “truck.” You and I are like twins we are so similar!
 
I have many workers from latin America so I never fear the accent. Is yours scary? Can you send some sort of voicemail message to me so I can evaluate it?
 
What did you like about me based on my reply to you? Do you mind if I have a wife already? What are you thoughts on that? Can you weed onions and pick out rotten onions on the grading table?
 
In fact, what are you thoughts about onions? Do you eat them? Do you love them? Did you know that they are great for your digestive system, although they may give you bad smelling poopy gas.
 
Yes, you do have quite the beautiful body. In fact, I would say you have the body of a porn star. I hope I am not being too naughty in saying that.
 
Ooh, please send me more photos! I love photo shoots. Do you take selfies too?
 
I do enjoy the side story about your one time photographer now insurance agent with a family friend named Anna! Does he look like a porn star too?
 
I like tv shows and movies too. I also love Bugs Bunny cartoons! They are so real that sometimes I think those cartoons are really documentaries! Do you think they are based on true stories?
 
I hate Madonna! Period! End of discussion!
 
I never go to the bars. My wife won’t let me. I don’t blame her.
 
I currently have 3 cats. I love them!
 
I too greatly admire and respect honest people.
 
Currently I am working on a very important/special project. You see, I fear that our entire planet and existence on planet earth is threatened by a dangerous temporal anomaly! You see, time travel research must take place so that centuries down the road we have trained time traveling soldiers and technicians who can deal with any threats to our current time line. To do this time travel research needs to be funded now. I firmly believe that I am the person that funds it. But I am currently broke. I needs funds to do this. So I am pleading with legitimate time travelers to get to me winning Powerball numbers, so I can amass a huge fortune and fund time travel research.
 
This isn’t about me getting rich, this is about protecting the timeline and humanity being the dominant life form on the planet.
 
What do you know about the gray space aliens? Are your transmissions secure or do I need to scramble them. The NSA is listening.
 
Talk with you soon,
 
C

letter! I hope to open the mail and see your message. It was nice to

little more. English I began to learn more before school, about a year
before I went to school. In kindergarten we were taught simple words

university I went to the English language more thoroughly. I finished
“Tbilisi Pedagogical Institute named AS Pushkin” in my country’s

and important work, which I want to do. And then, I love children. I
can speak fluently in English. But sometimes I make mistakes. I have
my difficulties, that would be correct to write. Sometimes I look in
the dictionary, if I can not find the right word. I have concerns
about my accent. Perhaps for you, my focus will be fun. =). You could
tell how you will treat my accent? You will not scare it? It would be
interesting to know what you think about it. I like you already knew
from our correspondence, I love sports. This allows you to be healthy
and keep your body in shape. But it is important for every woman –
many are sitting on a diet, pace yourself to lose a few pounds. To me
this easier, I am engaged in fitness and twice a week I go to the
pool. Therefore, I can say without false modesty that I have a
beautiful body, which I’m not ashamed, unlike many girls with
complexes (there are such, I hope they will not come across). I love
the photo shoot, and if you want, I can send you some of the most
successful in my view photos. Just want to warn you that my photos
will be at the level of a professional. After university, my best
friend, her name is Anna, bought a good camera, and wanted to become a
photographer. So we did a lot of photo session with her, and these
photos we have no one to show, and they were stored on the computer
Anna. My hard drive on the computer recently broke and I lost all my
pictures, so I had a photo taken from Anna. I think you’ll like.
Unfortunately, Anna was not able to become a photographer, because a
lot of competition, so she had to sell the camera in the future. And
now she has a family and children, and it works as an insurance agent.
Please tell me how you feel about the sport, practiced anything? I
spend free time mostly at home, reading books. Very fond of novels and
adventure. I watch soap operas, really like “Interns” is a hilarious
movie about the life of physicians, has just received a diploma and a
trainee in the hospital. From music I like to listen to Madonna, by
her beautiful songs are very incendiary dance! I am pleased to go to
the movies or cafes with friends, love to chat. Although, of course,
sometimes at work so exhausted that no strength to go anywhere. And
how do you spend your leisure time? Perhaps with the guys at the bar?
I think you are interested in my character. Itself is difficult to
assess, but friends say that I am a very quiet person. In people I
value integrity and honesty, and I did not like, if you suddenly find
out that the person lied to me. What are the qualities you like in
people? What is important to you in a woman in the first place? For me
the main thing – that was a good man. Such that he could take care of
others. Do you love cats? Or dogs? Well, now I’ll bombarded with
questions. I am writing you a letter from my friend Anna. She has
access to the Internet, and I’ll write to you from it. I want to make
our acquaintance continued. Maybe sometimes I do not get to answer you
quickly. But I will try to write to you often. Ok? Now I finish the
letter. I am pleased that we continue to chat, I’m waiting for your
letters! Your passionate girlfriend Nalan!!!


The latest reply from Nalan!

Nalan has responded to my reply to “her” … sort of. She actually sent one long paragraph containing all sorts of irrelevant information about all sorts of stuff and didn’t address anything I sent at all. “She” also sent 3 more pics of herself … well, they are of her if she is a doppelgänger of Hungarian porn star Eva Angel. Below is the text of the email and the 3 pics.

How do I know they are pics of Eva? Once again I searched the images via TinEye and Google image search. What I also found were some forum websites that others posted about this same scam. The text of the pitches are a bit different but the pics appear to be the same. Here is one link:

http://www.romancescam.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=6&p=380065&t=75900

This link is even better because this poor schmuck who started the thread states:

“Hi All, My gut says that Anna is a scammer but my optimistic side wants to believe otherwise. I have been chatting with Anna for at least 6 months.”

Six months? holy cow, that’s persistent!

http://www.romancescam.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=1&start=0&t=12461

It seems when viewing this thread that a set of scammers really like using images from this specific porn star for their scam.

According to how she ends the email she is now officially my girlfriend. Wow, that was easy!

Enjoy her reply and soon I will post my follow-up reply to her!

The plot thickens …

I love the internet!

I love it for many reasons but one in particular is you can now search almost anything. In fact, one of the neat things you can search now are images. In fact either via Google image search (https://images.google.com/?gws_rd=ssl) or a website called TinEye (https://www.tineye.com) you can search a see if an image matches something already out on the internet.

With that in mind I decided to search the 3 images sent to me by my new potential Georgian girlfriend and guess what … two of the images got hits and they are evidently of Eve Angel!

Who is Eve Angel? Don’t worry, I had no idea either. Evidently she is a Hungarian porn star and model. (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Eve_Angel) I must admit I’m not too up on my Hungarian porn so it slipped past me. I am a bit disappointed though. Remember what Nalan said to me in “her” e-mail:

“I must say that I do not want to cheat a friend, hiding behind fake online nicknames. You know, many people want to look better than they really are, and for that choose a some exotic, completely ridiculous names…”

Hmm … I guess that doesn’t include using pics of a porn star to be pics supposedly of you. Nothing too fake about that … lol.

Do I out her? Not yet … Let’s see what “she” sends me in reply to my ramble to “her.”

This sort of reminds me of the scene from the Dirty Harry movie “The Enforcer.” Just fast forward to the 3:10 of this video clip. I bet this is what is taking place.
