    You just pick such amazing flowers, Denise. Simply beautiful.
    And now my ” alternate” Fbook account is blocked, and they won’t say why. That’s it, for Fuckerberg

      I wish my container gardens looked so healthy, I have the worst luck keeping them alive in the summer 😀

        Thank You Denise. Simply beautiful flowers. 😀

        For some reason When I do window boxes (well in a condo the hang inside the rail on the deck) they always turn out well. but the larger containers on the floor never do as well. However I have learned I need to do them later in the season. The darn mourning doves and finches think I set them up housing options. I can always tell when they think I am holding an open house. My deck is more like small porch so it is covered and on the top floor the eves add more protection. And they know the cats cannot get them through the windows. The mourning doves are the worst. Darn things just toss a couple twigs down and call it a day and then a storm comes along and it’s bye bye eggs. So now I use less potting soil so I cam leave a nice protective barrier for the wee ones. The robins prefer the top of the light as they can attach the nest to the back bracket. This is also along the wall of the condo so well out of storm ⛈ way. I sometimes thing they and the Baltimore oriels think the mourning doves are a bit daft. The cardinals like the pine tree next to the deck. But the daddy doves give mom breaks so I guess they are

      The uderlying problem is this is the country a lot of people think they want. My brother works for a non-profit that helps disabled people find jobs. He’s a PR person for them. Not someone who actaully finds the jobs. He was on a conference call yesterday with someone from the White House Office of Management and Budget, and he said, “My liberal heart is bursting at how much better this administration is going to be at helping our clients find meaningful work.” When I suggested a rising unemployment rate doesn’t bode well for his clients, he dismissed it. Biden is going to create jobs for the disabled in the government. I countered with, “You mean he’s going to make them work for their SSI checks every month doing “make work” jobs? Because they’re already eligible for the real government jobs and are given priority in hiring.”

      He then told me the infrastructure jobs Biden will create will have lots of jobs for his clients. When I pointed out unless his clients are joining the Army Corps of Engineers or the Seabees, the government has no employees that build infrastructure. They hire private contractors to do the work. Then I got the money quote, “Sis, your definition of infrastructure is too narrow. Infrastructure is anything our lives are built on. Yes, bridges and roads, but the trucks are, too. Education, childcare, the medical community, housing, all of that is infrastructure, and the government is going to be more involved in all of it. ” I asked him how he felt about his life being controlled by the DMV. He said, “If waiting in line for it to be your turn makes life more fair for everyone, it’s a small price to pay.”

      There was a lot more to the conversation about how capitalism has ruined our lives, but that conversation we have all the time. I was more interested in the substance of his conversation with the person in charge of the government’s “Faith Based Initiatives”. Apparently, the faith-based groups have failed, and it’s time for the government to take over. When I pointed out it’s selfish to expect the government to take care of your family so you don’t have to, he needed to get back to work.

      • votermom says:

        like talking to a brick wall!

      • Somebody says:

        Wow, but I could probably have a similar conversation with my CA sister🙄

        Apparently she heard the term “China Joe” somewhere recently, perhaps on her flight or from my BIL? All I know is she called me and asked me to calmly explain to her what that means and where it came from, she promised to listen and not say a word she wanted to understand.

        So I explain the trip on AF2, followed by 1.5 billion from the Chinese government into Hunter’s private equity firm. Go briefly into said firm’s buying up of companies with sensitive national security-defense implications. That the skids were greased with CFIUS for said sales because of the VP’s son and then mention the laptop and the money Hunter insisted be set aside for the “Big Guy” and that he peddled influence of “his guy”.

        She listened and said “Oh that crap?”, “Well I’ll tell you that crap is meaningless, I didn’t vote for Hunter Biden, nobody did”. “Besides most of that has been debunked as conspiracy theories and even if it is true, why should anybody care. Politicians and their family members make money off of their offices all the time, including Republicans”

        I mentioned the national security implications, not just of the companies bought by the Chinese, but also that the Biden’s appear to be owned by the Chinese. Her response was “So what, most of DC is owned by someone”

          “ Politicians and their family members make money off of their offices all the time, including Republicans”

          and it’s wrong when either side does it (that is why I supported Trump – and he didn’t do near as much to stop as I would have liked – but at least it was something) … and every citizen should be ashamed they allow it, that ‘serving the people’ and being paid a salary and the best benefits in the world should be enough – but no, you should be able to ‘steal’ as well with your corruption.

          … but hey, just let bygones be bygones – let them steal away…. one day they may steal your home or your bank account or one of your elections.

      • 1539days says:

        This reminds me of a Mythbusters experiment in the last season. They created a mock supermarket and had volunteers buy groceries and get in line. System 1 was a bunch of registers and people pick a line and wait to be cashed out. The other was one large queue and when a lane opened, the next person would go there, kind of like a bank.

        Turns out that the queue system led to a lower average wait time BUT customer satisfaction was lower. People generally like to be the captains of their own destiny. This is why people hate DMV and bank lines. The government loves telling people what to do because it’s easier that way. Almost no one loves being told what to do. It’s why even liberals don’t like Biden.

    • elliesmom says:

      “Nice house you got there. . . .”

      • Mothy67 says:

        I have no problem with the house purchase. Is it that expensive for the area? I detest the woman, but can see an argument for the move. There was a time when many suburbs were all white. Black families moved in and changed perceptions. Were it a ten million dollar house I’d rethink.

    • 1539days says:

      And it only took untold thousands of additional COVID deaths from BLM protests to get it.

    • lateblum says:

      I’ve been thinking about this since I first saw it on Twitter yesterday. A condo in my building just went on the market this week priced at $499k. One sold last fall with an asking price of $895k. Mine might sell for $235k. It is small and only partially upgraded – with much more to be done, which I cannot afford. Many of the houses in my neighborhood carry multimillion dollar price tags. It is location, historic landmark significance, yard size and other amenities that contribute to the “value” of the homes here. In another town they wouldn’t be half their prices, but would still be worth a lot.
      So I guess the price of the house in Topanga Canyon or wherever it is didn’t shock me. It could be a bungalow. I don’t know. (I’m just saying bungalow because around here, the term bungalow signifies a smallish rather insignificant style. I’m not casting judgment.) But I’ve read that $1M for a house in some areas of CA isn’t all that much.
      Recently, A friend in Seattle paid $1.5M for a prairie style bungalow. She’s a social worker – not a high paying profession. How she qualified for financing a house with that price tag is beyond me. So I’d guess that kind of mortgage isn’t unusual for her location in Seattle.
      Anywhooo, maybe Cullors is planning on establishing a compound for her BLM family and friends in the Canyon. And this may be the start. If she’s already letting people know where she is, her house isn’t planned as a safe haven.

    • lyn5 says:

      Is she employed?

      • Mt.Laurel says:

        The article says the property was purchased by an organization controlled by this person. In other words, she pays herself first and gets to write off her expenses (housing, travel…). This is the type of scam, I mean venture, that Mr and Mrs Sparkles set up that started their war with those pesky Brits.

        It looks like it was someone’s second home. Not much to it and looks like stock builders materials so the dollars would be for the land. I don think it is very ummmmm diverse area.

    sometimes I think I need to switch doctors…but this has been my doctor since KTE was born

    • lateblum says:

      Good luck vm. If your doc is a long time doctor, can you speak with him/her before you make the move?
      I had to switch doctors a couple of years ago when my doctor (since 1996) retired. She is/was younger than I, but was demonstrating signs of early onset dementia. 😢 I didn’t dislike my new doctor, we just didn’t connect well. Plus, the new hospital system is much larger than the one I left. I moved because my oncology team is with the new system. I still do not feel comfortable with that system despite the positive evaluations it receives across the board – except for communication. Communication with doctors is abominable.

      Anyway, my replacement doc also retired and I was able to select a second “new” doctor. I like her. She’s young and she listens. I hope this works. Otherwise, I will be like a ship with no place to anchor. A very insecure feeling.

  9. DeniseVB says:

    My favorite WH pet, so far, has been “Millie” Bush.

    • Mt.Laurel says:

      Like or dislike the Bushes but both George/Barbara and GW/Laura were true animal people and it showed.

      I always respected PT for understanding he is not an animal person but accepting that other are so inclined.

      Knowing and accepting pets just are not your thing is far better than insisting on faking it for PR (see BO/MO and Joey/Jillie). Note that both those later two couple have dogs that are problematic. No matter how many handlers you hire, pets know.

      • DeniseVB says:

        I remember when Jill bought Joe the older shepherd as a puppy when they won in 2008. I think that was a pet since I never saw or heard from that pup again 🙂 Bitey dog, Major, was being fostered by the Bidens from a breeder friend or something. When he decided to run for President they decided to officially adopt him. That ‘ceremony’ was held at the local shelter to shed light on pet adoption, and, of course, the wonderful, caring Bidens. I guess that’s sort of backfired now, but I don’t blame the dog. He was already returned to the breeder for rehoming which is the sign of a good breeder to take a pup back, no questions asked. I guess those old issues resurfaced under stress of the WH 😀

        • Mt.Laurel says:

          Nope. Not the dog’s fault and yes it shows Major came from a good breeder. . It has to have been very unnerving to move house more than once in a short span of time .. Just as he was adjusting he was uprooted again and basically put on show.

          I think McNorman would agree, when you work to place animals it is very hard to turn down someone already fostering for an adoption. if anyone pointed out this might not be the best fit for Major, and someone should have done so this is rather basic to matching correctly, they were ignored.

        Retina specialists take self-referrals. I’m glad I didn’t wait an extra day to go to my local eye doctor. I hope Crenshaw had the cataract treated, because retina surgery accelerates its growth.

        If you see a shadow in your peripheral vision, seek help immediately. In my eye, the area of the shadow also glowed orange when I closed my eye, so I thought light was leaking into my eye. There was a tear in the retina.

        Had a check up with the retina specialist on Wednesday, and with my new eyeglasses I could read the tiniest line on the eye chart. Now my left eye is better than my right eye.

    “The city, which Hawass also called “The Rise of Aten,” dates back to the era of 18th-dynasty king Amenhotep III, who ruled Egypt from 1391 till 1353 B.C.

    Now this really makes me angry. Working in transportation for 30 years I understand qualifcations and safety of the person in charge of getting any vehicle from start to finish safely and on time. I have worked with all colors and most religions and they do not matter when it comes to safety. Are you qualified, that is all I need to know. If not get the hell out of the way I do not have time to play I need to find someone who is qualified.

    • elliesmom says:

      I can see the value in a 13 year old girl having a nerdy female science teacher to set a role model that women can do science. It’s counter-productive, though, if that science teacher isn’t one of the very best science teachers she has. Then it becomes “men make better science teachers than women do.” The same thing is true in any job. If you lower your standards to hire women and blacks, it hurts your cause more than it helps. If your business hasn’t been attracting highly qualified women and minorities, it would be worthwhile to figure out why because every employer wants an abundance of highly qualified people to choose from, but lowering standards to include people you wouldn’t hire if they were white males helps no one.

      The lady with the red handbag looks ok. The rest of her outfit is conservative enough that the stockings don’t hurt it.

      The one in the leopard heels is a broken hip waiting to happen and the one in the shawl has been hitting the bourbon.

      • Mt.Laurel says:

        The woman with the red purse also has the best hair. And her stockings do not scream “hooker”. Just adding a bit of fun and likely in response to people saying hosiery are old hat but she still prefers the no blister look on her feet.

        • Miranda says:

          It’s a very old-fashioned style, which is fine if that’s what she wants. She could get a more updated style that was still dignified. It still looks better than the other styles, including Jill’s. My aunt is 75 and wears hers really short and dyed a light sandy brown it looks fine.

      What’s really stupid is how much the left is resisting the fact that the vaccine is the solution. Even if only 50% of the population takes it, any other people who still get it will add to the herd immunity. In NY, the death rate is actually very low and its a lagging indicator. Only 20% of the population is vaccinated.

      My guess is that 60% of the population (over 16) is going to get vaccinated by choice and another 10% will get vaccinated through bribery and social pressure. For now, there aren’t even enough doses to vaccinate the people who want it and all this media about variants and new spikes is more fear porn to soften people up for the next dumb restriction that has nothing to do with public health.

      • elliesmom says:

        About 45% of adults in the US get a flu shot every year. If the number of people dying from covid-19 keeps dropping, or state governmments give the go ahead for businesses to open, I expect the number of people getting the vaccine will be closer to that number, expecially if covid vaccines become something people have to do every year. Although people are still reacting to the virus emotionally and really not listening, even the strongest proponents of the vaccine have never said it will eradicate the virus. Just as people live in the midst of the influenza virus and go about their business with 55% of the population unvaccinated, people will learn to accept covid-19 as a fact of living. Thousands of people, many of them young children, die from the flu every year. We live with it.

        • 1539days says:

          In this case, we have little choice. COVID is endemic now. With the flu, people in China get it first, a vaccine is developed and the US can get vaccinated before there’s a chance to spread. Just to be a broken record, the lockdown would have a gone a long way to isolating the spread had a bunch of liberal assholes not decided to organize race riots just as the case increase was dropping.

          There’s a story that the Marines are accepting the vaccine at about a 40% rate.

  48. elliesmom says:

    The latest saga of the conversations with the idiot brother. I said people think Biden is Obama’s third term, but he’s actually Jimmy Carter’s second. The foreign policy decisions, the energy policies, and Keynesian economics are all Carteresque. There will be stagflation soon, and we’ll all be blamed for suffering from malaise. The moron response was “Biden will end up another Bill Clinton. He’s just keeping campaign promises now, but next year he’ll start moving to the center so he can get re-elected.”

    I’m trying to decide how to answer this. Biden is going to make Clinton look like a Republican. My brother was born in 1960 so he was a dumb jock teenager during the Carter years. When he started driving, my dad used to yell at him all the time for never refilling the gas when he took the car so I bet he never sat in a gasline. He doesn’t have any idea what a big deal being energy independent means. He only has vague memories of the hostage crisis and has no idea what little respect the US had in the world. I’d bet on his not knowing who John Maynard Keynes is, and I’d also put money on his not being able to explain the difference between what Keynes and Friedman’s economic policies are to AOC. He belittles “Reaganomics”, but he has no idea what it was. He took economics in college, but it was the equivalent of “Rocks for Jocks” in the science department, which he also took. I’d also bet his whole delight with Biden right now is over the bump his bank account just took from the stimulus package, He doesn’t care how much an illegal immigrant got. It’s only that he got a check. He has no grandchildren who will have to face the music later. That he believes Biden will stand for re-election is mind boggling.

      Trump hate made people brain dead. I agree Biden is more Carter than Bill or Buttrock. Biden is only another Bill Clinton in the pervert department. Biden is on his own in the SJW sociopath department.

      I haven’t seen a bump in my checking account for $2,400, but the two $600 payments not received will give me a 2020 tax refund. The value of the dollar will take a hit with stagflation.

      Biden can barely do his presidential duties today let alone plan for re-election.

        I doubt Biden can make plans for the next few minutes, let along for re-election.
        And btw, whatever happened to, “I will only run for one term. That is it”?

      This election promises are going to be like tires around his neck that even his own side will likely light on fire.

      So funny, I was just saying how looked like Carter all over again to a friend yesterday – and when 20% (or even half that) interest rates kick in, you’ll see the real divide between rich and poor as only rich people will be buying houses (and they’re already doing that now, so imagine the gluttony)… in L.A., most of Gen Z has accepted they will rent all their lives – kinda like NY, right?… it used to be the middle class could buy in the sticks, but now people only talk about being able to buy if they move out of state.

      The Biden years look as long in tooth as the man they’re named after.

    If you liked Dan Brown’s DaVinci Code fiction, you’ll like this real life Vatican intrigue.

    It’s a translation from Italian, with a few jarring misspellings & the wrong word now & again.

    As a generic Christian, I was impressed by what writings of Benedict I’ve read. It was in common with Protestant & Orthodox beliefs. He was truly speaking for all believers in Jesus Christ.

    But Francis is a leftist.

    Benedict was forced out of power, but he never properly resigned, so Francis is not really the Pope, and people are waking up to that fact. Benedict is playing the long game.
