    The flowers look like they are loving the rain. They are beautiful. 🙂


    What a great song to wake up to.

    what an embarrassment. just think how he will embarrass this country when he meets the Queen

    • DeniseVB says:

      They won’t want him then? LOL……

    • Mt.Laurel says:

      I feel so sorry for the Queen. She has to meet these idiots who have publicly supported those ungrateful grifters, the Sparkles, and of course her manners will be perfect but I am sure they would like to slap Biddie and jillion. Especially after that graceless stupid classmate of the Barry’s girls from Sidwell (ground zero for rich spoiled American kids in dc) caused such and embarrassing scene at Oxford over demanding the Queens picture be removed. The USA contingent best behave, I think William, like his grandad, would have a mean left hook.

        Kate has an Instagram post of her meeting with Jill. I offered my condolences.

        • DeniseVB says:

          The kids are lefties, they cringed publicly having to meet the Trumps 😦

          • lyn5 says:

            I wondered about that.

          • Mt.Laurel says:

            Charles was an early lover woke before it was called woke much to his mother’s displeasure and it has seeped into the system. But if it comes down to woke versus The Crown, I think and hope William will go with the Crown and UK. And William does not like to see Elizabeth the Queen and The Crown dishonored nor Elizabeth his grandmother defamed.

            Queen Victoria’s other half ,Albert ,was viewed as the annoying wokey dokey of their generation.

            Harry and Sparkles are just Wallis Simpson & What’s HIs Name the Next Generation.

          • Mt.Laurel says:

            I think Charles almost had seizure when The Queen personally invited PT back. I think she understood agree or disagree/like or dislike PT had a far better understanding of the world and respect for other countries ways and traditions than B(arry) and B(Bid-on).

      Remember what a hard time the media gave Dan Quayle? Kamala is so much worse than that…………

        Do not elect women who screw their way to get ahead.

      • Mt.Laurel says:

        Hard time is putting it mildly. I often wonder what dan saw that he was not suppose to see/know. It seemed someone was afraid would something come out when he put the pieces together so they ordered a hit job.

    Denise, Every day the flowers get better and better! I so love this photo of roses in the rain. I can remember being in my grandmother’s flower garden when I was visiting in the summertime. She had a large rose garden immediately at the back of the house with other flowers all around the perimeter of the yard. And this reminds me of how much I loved going out in the rain to watch the roses just loving the rain. I guess the older I get, the more I enjoy the memories that have kind of been dormant during the years.

      My son oversees the hiring of TSA agents and has to toss out a lot of new college grads because they don’t want to do the grunt work in entry level positions. He much rather hire h.s. grads with a little real life experiences, preferably military 🙂 It’s not just the ivies either, all the colleges seem to be cranking out special snowflakes.

      • Mt.Laurel says:

        One use to be able to look to community college grads. However so many peter pan types refused to leave school and keep earning extra degrees then want to teach at the college level that many discipline are oversaturated with JilJil Bidons. They then end up at the community college level hoping for an teaching opening elsewhere down the road. That also pushed out a lot of people who use to teach at community college level that had practical experience and expertise in their field but no advanced degree. So now many of those students are getting a far worse education because their instructors have never lived outside academia.

      Someone where I work saw this on Fox News and thought it was about breaking a computer screen. We have a lot of interaction with broken CRT and LCD monitors.

    I betcha NY has all kinds of poorly thought through plans to re-open the city in a way providing more “equity”. Meeeeechelle alluded to as much at the beginning of the lockdowns.
    Coogan’s decided last spring to shutter for good. The owners had built an extremely successful business in ” the Heights” ( yes lin Manuel was a regular) starting during the crack epidemic decades ago. They saw an unmet need and took a huge risk. The bar/restaurant is on what is essentially Columbia-Presby campus. An Irish pub, in a barrio on an Ivy League campus. Washington Heights has changed a lot over the last 35 plus years and Coogan’s played a role.
    Rent was more than 40 a month plus insurance, equipment rental, and other costs. They decided to close for good. Economically it made no sense to weather. I have heard whispers that an attempt is being made to have it become minority owned. Okay. It will require a yuuuge investment. I’d say minimum of 700 thousand. It’s not something you just hand over to an upstart. I can’t see it not being sold to an already wealthy minority owned interest. How does that help the community at large. It took the previous owners decades to create a place that became an institution. I can see a connected person getting a great deal and being kept afloat by subsidies, but eventually closing. In my neighborhood there are four convenience stores essentially given to refugees. No way they make enough to stay open. Only one has parking. Try going to a bank and getting a loan to open a convenience store next to a convenience store? You would be laughed out. Yet these programs do no research just hand over wads of cash. A very nice guy from Nepal opened a fro-yo shop at the top of my street. There was an attempt to cry racism when he had to cease business after less than a year. There was no foot traffic and all the place sold was frozen yogurt. Which has only a few months of reliable potential sales. It was 30 minutes away from the pool/park so even on a hot summer day kids weren’t making the trek. There is a reason icecream trucks still exist. Also fro-yo is a bit steep for kids. I think it cost about 7 for a cup with a few toppings. I knew he’d be closed within a year and I patronized. Every business that has gone in there has. No loan officer would ever approve such a loan. The federal government does. They fail and taxpayers foot the bill, but proggies and bureaucrats get to blame racism. never considered is the fact that it was a poor business decision.
    I haven’t been able to get much info on permanently closed restaurants/small businesses in NY, but I am sure there are/will be many. Think it will be very scary if big government tries to redistribute. It will be a mess but they can always cry racism and say their hands are clean.
    There’s a documentary on Coogan’s shot mostly before covid. I haven’t seen.

  12. Mothy67 says:

    I now look at everything from the news with a critical jaundiced eye. I noticed local blah blah blah’s have been reporting covid cases saying over the last 48 hours.Today they reported 68 new cases over the last two days. Yesterday it was 39 cases over the last 48 hours. Seems they are intentionally trying to make it serm like we are in worse shape than we are. It’s unvarnished manipulation.

    Disturbing New Info Emerges On Apparent “Magnetic” Side Effects Happening to Some COVID Vaccinated People

    Have you heard of the “Magnetic Challenge?”

    No, it’s not some wacky teenage TikTok challenge, it’s actually much creepier.

    It all started as a rumor involving a microchipping conspiracy theory that involved the COVID-19 vaccine.

    It’s no secret that many people are leery about taking the vaccine for a number of reasons, namely because it hasn’t gone through the lengthy trials needed in order to receive FDA approval. However, a lot of folks are also convinced that the COVID-19 vaccine is part of a sinister plot to microchip the masses.

  14. DandyTIger says:

    Went to a local restaurant, mostly frequented by working class types, vs. the usual C’Ville snobs. Noticed no one was wearing masks, so asked. They said no masks if you’ve been vaccinated, then smiled, and said, so no masks required. 🙂
