    What a gorgeous pond!! Koi require a lot of work, but goldfish in a pond can grow very big. Ponds are so peaceful. That one is something else.

      Kansas must not have ducks or egrets 🙂 When I saw that Koi Chow machine it should be heavily guarded by bossy waterfowl out looking for a free meal and the egrets would clean the pond of the Koi. Goldfish would be more economical for that kind of turnover.

    All this stupid coverage over Watchgate, nobody asked why Joe kept looking at his stupid watch? There sure has been a lot fact checking, but geesh, why does the POTUS even need to wear a watch when he’s got people to tell him the time ?

    • elliesmom says:

      When I retired, one of the first things I did was take off my watch and put it in a drawer. I haven’t put it back on once since, and I haven’t been late for anything. The only reason for someone who has nowhere he has to be other than where he is to keep looking at his watch is impatience. There are lots of reasons for being impatient. Biden could have been trying to figure out how much longer it would be before he could use the restroom, or he might have been uncomfortable being in the presence of the bodies and families of people he had sent to their deaths. Maybe he was bored and looking at his watch is a nervous tic. The only thing we can know for sure from his actions was, for whatever reason, he didn’t want to be there.

        I’m not hating joe on this. I haven’t worn a watch in years. My phone is always in my hand. I tilt it all the time to check the time. I don’t have to be anywhere, like ever. I just check time. It’s habit. I think he could have been more sensitive but I don’t see the uproar. My mom gets furious when he brings up Beau. She has buried a kid and to her that is a silent pain. My Aunt Ruth said the same thing at my Uncle’s funeral. Laurie died from Hodgkins. She was 34. Aunt Ruth stood tall with her daughter every day for years. She has no space for joe manipulating. A child’s death is something I cannot concieve but what could be more private than the loss of your kid. My Aunt Ruth gets very mad each time he uses Beau. She is not political. Presbyterian. She is my mother’s brothers wife. Reserved. I is one of six blue eyed Irish Catholic. We were loud and gross to her. She sat with her daughter as cancer ate her. She is far toooo polite to discuss politics at the country club. Yet biden’s talk of Beau fills her with rage. Laurie and I had the same birthday so there was always a bash. She got cancer in high school. Each year was a win. Never heard Aunt Ruth vent about politics. Sweet Jesus she hates bid on.

      Fuckup admitted he lied but still wrapped himself with his self-righteous blankie. LOL.

      As many of you already know, this story has been corrected. Biden checked his watch multiple times during the ceremony. I regret the error.
      Journalists and fact-checkers are human (yes, even me!) We make mistakes. When we do, we correct them and try to make it right.
      Crown @joshfann43 Replying to @dpfunke: Stop the fact check bullshit. We all saw it and heard multiple people say the same thing.

      Those fear operations are mostly to make people afraid to go to Trump and related rallies. Then they can pretend no one is interested in America First and Trump.

    When your child is hospitalized for a long period, you get to know the staff, and they get to know you. When my son’s nurses realized I “walk off worry”, they became concerned my walks might take me into neighborhoods I might be better off avoiding. They asked the Jimmy Fund to gift me with a year’s pass to the Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum, which was a medium walk through one of Boston’s lovelier neighborhoods. The Gardner Museum is most infamous for the still unsolved art heist in 1990. It was built in the style of a 15th century Venetian palace in 1900 or so. Isabella had private quarters on the top floor, and she spent her inheritance acquiring art. It was a beautiful place for me to rest my soul. I got to see the hanging nasturtiums in the interior courtyard in their season and have a quiet lunch in their cafe. When I returned to the hospital after giving my son some time to rest, I was ready to face his journey again. I walked to the museum dozens of times that year, but when the year was over, I put it away with my other memories from that time.

    I follow the Federalist online, and yesterday an article popped up about the Gardner. The museum currently has an exhibit of the six paintings seldom seen together by Titian based on Ovid’s poem “The Metamorphsis”. I started to think after all of these years maybe it’s time to visit the Gardner Museum again. Then I read the article, and I’ve decided to leave the memory of the museum as a place of sanity in my upside down world intact and just as it was,

      Trigger warnings on art?! Ugg.

    • lateblum says:

      After reading this article, all I can say is SMH.

    • votermom says:

      That was a museum I wanted to go to when we visited Boston, but we only had time for the Museum of Fine Art (which was great btw)

    • swanspirit says:

      Titian is one of my favorite artists. I can’t believe the author of that article compared Zeus, to Harvey Weinstein. If I had the wherewithal, to visit the Titan exhibit, their idiocy would not deter me. What a bunch of morons, but at least they have the exhibit. That has to be unimaginably breathtaking.
      When I still lived in Baltimore, The BMA had a wonderful Monet exhibit. My mother, who was an artist, and I went. It was incredible. Just amazing. Go if you can, to the Titian, he may be one of ancestors. Screw the morons.

      • elliesmom says:

        I took my daughter to see the Monet exhibit at the Boston MFA when she was 8 or 9, and she was enthralled. When she got married, she chose a china pattern with the water lilies around the rim. The last “artventure” we went on together was to see a Mary Cassatt show. We both love the Impressionists. I was in one of the local discount stores when I saw some everyday dishes with Andy Warhol’s Campell’s Tomato Soup Can so I bought her those for fun. She couldn’t decide which dishes were her favorites. I could probably talk her into a trip to Boston to see the Titians with me. We’ve never been to the Gardner together. She was away at school that year.

        Lamberth says he’ll consider motion for release. Bet he doesn’t release Chansley.

        The entire DC judicial system is a kangaroo court.

        Sentencing hearing in person November 17. Chansley will remain in jail until Lamberth rules on motion for release.

    I went to my local grocer to get bus snacks. Tonight is the last night of summer vball. I figured Id drop a dime and buy for the bus. School starts Tuesday so this was just snacks. Everything was on sale, but half the shelves were empty. Barren. I got three large bags of smokehouse almonds. They are normally 9.99 a bag. I got three for twelve. Cans of nuts, ritz crackers, two cases of gatorade, and two cheese plates. Total was 31. Staples are through the roof but snacks are on sale? A store brand loaf of white bread was 99 cents before covid. I make a lot of grilled cheese, sadly. It’s 2.59 now. Kraft singles were 3 dollars for 16 slices. Now 6.89. I use cheap bread but good cheeses. A pound of extra sharp cheddar is 6. I expected 70 dollar bill. It’s bus food. I got a shitload for 31 dollars. I cannot buy butter, eggs, bread, and milk for 31 to feed three for four days. Almonds, smokehouse almonds are my absolute favorite thing. Three 16 ounce bags for 12. What the freud?
    Shelves are empty prices are up but all the snacks are on sale?

    Sent this to my RINO congressman today:

    Julie Kelly (American Greatness) has reported on the Jan6 political prisoners. Republicans need to speak out against this travesty of justice. The Democrats are fascist totalitarian sociopaths, and not one Republican is speaking out against them. Well, President Trump is, but I don’t consider him a Republican.

    Julie Kelly @julie_kelly2 tweets:
    Jacob Chansley, the most famous J6 protester, pleads guilty to obstruction of an official proceeding, a felony. Last J6 protester to plead guilty to same charge sentenced to 8 months in prison. Chansley has been in prison for almost 8 months. Chansley, with no criminal record, will now be a convicted felon.
    (I cannot wait until the next massive protest in DC when leftist activists occupy a building to stop official Congressional business. Think those people will face felony charges? No way.)

    Al Watkins, Chansley lawyer, asking for his release. He’s been in solitary 22/23 hours a day with exception of time at time in Englewood facility. Suffers severe mental strain. Wants him sent home to his family during pre-sentence period. Lamberth denied his release last hearing. Watkins explaining the mental health care Chansley will receive if released.
    DOJ STILL WANTS TO KEEP HIM IN JAIL. Absolute monsters.
    “Concerns over safety of the community.” They want to keep torturing this man. Nonviolent offender with no record. This DOJ is pure evil. Watkins asking for “humane” treatment for Chansley. Keep in mind-Chansley has obvious mental health issues and Joe Biden’s DOJ wants to keep him in jail to further punish him for protesting the election. Political prisoners.
    And, yeah, President Trump won the 2020 election. The 18/19 bellwether counties proved it. The half-dead guy in the White House proves it too: You don’t destroy a country in seven months if you won.

    I’ll take things that are not true for 500.
    Rosanna Arquette is claiming she turned down a movie role because it is to be shot in Texas. She is 62 and it’s 2021. If Michelle Pfeifer walked away it would mean something. Rosanna Arquette.?She is Dewey’s sister from Scream. Her fame flickered and burnt out when Madonna made Desperately Seeking Susan about Madonna.
    I have worked in film. Contracts are iron clad. No way she can walk away. It’s not possible. It’s a lie. Kim Bassinger found out with Boxing Helena. She’s not even on theD list.

    Kindle won’t let me reply upthread. But i take issue with arquette saying she walked away. I am not an attorney, but I’ve had to deal with contracts in entertaiment. You don’t walk away. I wrote a short story when i was 23. It was bought. The movie is putrid slop. I tried to have it killed. I offered to buy it flat out. There was nothing I could do. You don’t walk away. It’s bullshit. The Toto song was catchy.
