    Wow!!! What a great dragon!

  2. Dora says:

    I never knew a dragon could look so pretty. 🙂

  3. Dora says:

    Now he is missing too! I still think he killed her!


    Gabby Petito’s family responds after Brian Laundrie said to be ‘missing’: ‘He is hiding

    Laundrie’s family told police they hadn’t seen him since Tuesday when officers arrived at the family’s Florida home expecting to speak with him


    • swanspirit says:

      I think he killed her, or left her to die, and now he is just evading the law.

    • lateblum says:

      I don’t know if he killed her or left her stranded in the desert or the empty spaces in Utah that look like the moon landing could’ve been shot there. But when I heard that she had been “missing” for ten days before her parents even knew it, I lost hope.
      I almost thought it could’ve been a publicity stunt that got out of control. But now, I’m very sad for her family. I only hope there can be a silver lining somewhere in all this.

    If I ever get back to Atlanta, the botanic garden is now on my “must see” list.

  5. lateblum says:

    Oh my goodness!! This dragon is wonderful! Every morning I look forward to the moment I open TCH to see what beauty Denise will provide. Today it is magical!
    TY, Denise. ❣️

  6. lateblum says:

    Maybe you all have already seen this, but I just saw it for the first time this morning. . .

      The full story will be on Full Measure this weekend.

    • jadzia1971 says:

      This kind of stuff makes me especially angry. Not only because the death rate is of course what the government is using to justify the draconian measures it is taking but also because it is the basis of all the social pressure and shaming and exclusion that people like me are experiencing on an informal level. It certainly tracks with this sense of gaslighting that I’ve been feeling for quite some time–we are told that this could be the end of the world as we know it, practically, but when I look around, as I have been doing for 18 months now, I’m just not seeing it. Yet I’m the one who’s crazy.

      • 1539days says:

        If you look at Israel, which has been doing all the vaccine stuff they can, they’re death rate is half that of the US. But if we’re over-counting by nearly double, Israel isn’t doing any “better” with their universal jabs (now, jabs + booster) than the US with a voluntary vaccination prgram.

      MSNBC is already going with “the rally is a bust.” They did mention that the rally is limited to 700 people, so if 701 people show up, they’d call it an illegal riot or something.

          Yes. It’s only the Trump supporters who are locked up. And now that ppl have been exposed to the *real* Democrats led by Sleepy Joe Biden, they can see that it’s the Biden voters who should be in jail.

      • DeniseVB says:

        I guess there’s a rally in DC today? I know NO ONE going for whatever reason, I can’t wait to see how the dumass media tries to cover it. I don’t care what kind of signs they’re flying………….I hope F’Biden 😀

      It didn’t take long for my physical therapist to realize the mask was making me dizzy, not my stroke brain. I wonder why? I had no clue never having experienced forced to wear masks while recovering from a giant brain fart episode 🙂 She said I was simply not getting enough air.

      • Constance says:

        It’s not healthy to wear masks. I do OK with them for about 10 minutes and then get dizzy. By the time I take them off they are always soggy and disgusting. I can’t imagine wearing them all day at work which so many people are forced to do.

        • lateblum says:

          When I wear them at the grocery store, I have to remove them to get air after about 10 minutes. And I am always sweaty and having difficulty breathing by that time. I just spoke to the big sister grand baby, and she says she now has a rash all around her mouth and chin from wearing her mask in school. She said she often distances from others at recess and lunch so she an remove her mask to let her face air dry and refresh her mask. I’m grateful that when she walks home from school she now removes her mask because of that rash. Of course, I encourage her.

          • jadzia1971 says:

            My most well-behaved, compliant child is at the point of declaring openly that she hates the masks. I agree with her but was still pretty shocked.

        • Mothy67 says:

          Shay says no one wears them over nose at school. Connor is Connor. He attends regular school. Twenty five years ago he’d been sent to special school. I have mixed feelings about mainstreaming. It’s been 11 years we all know Connor. He acts out. Lots of impulse control. According to Shay mask policy is wink wink. One teacher who has a perpetual running nose and who dared to go at me for CNN Ten attacked a boy with an IQ of about 70. Kids stood up for him. It was only Nick who is from China that stopped girls from beating her up. I know not what was whispered down the lane. I hear fantastic stories from Shay’s friends. I truly like most of the teachers. For some reason teachers have dogs. I talk to them all the time on walks. It’s almost never about anything close to political. This one woman who looks like she needs food is the one who went after a retarded boy about a mask. I think she encapsulates the modern liberal. Angry, bitter, unnourished. We were sitting in a circle with all her teachers. The English teacher who has a Phd told me she loves Shay. She said Shay helps her teach. I spent ten years reading books at universities to be qualified for nothing but final Jeopardy. I have read to her but I always question her. We got through Jane Eyre. Shay hated it. I hate it. So glad I pounded nails in the floor with my forehead (eric bogosian) . it’s one of my favorite books but I hated it. Cinderella.

        • 1539days says:

          I wear one at work. I try to work in a back laboratory area as much as possible because it qualifies as an “office” and I can take my mask off when the door is closed.

      • jadzia1971 says:

        At this point, I’d consider myself lucky that you had a PT who called it like she saw it.

    First real sign of fall today. The “R&R” ducks have arrived to the lake. We have a couple of dozen summer residents, but for a few weeks every spring and fall the numbers swell as the ducks from farther north take a break here. I didn’t have my phone or a camera with me today, but I’ll try to get some pics of Ellie swimming with them before they leave. They are remarkably comfortable around both of us. When the ducks are up on the shore, they part a way for me to walk through the middle of the flock, but they don’t scatter. There were so many of them on the dock today it looked like a scene from “The Birds”.

    • lateblum says:

      The other afternoon when I was out walking, a flock of geese – or is it a gaggle?- was flying overhead. But they were so low it looked like they were looking for a landing place and sounded like they were inches away from ly head. I wanted to let them know they were pretty close to the park along the lake . . . but they probably already knew that.

    Crud’s phone just went to a black screen with an apple in white it’s an 1100 dollar phone. I didn’t pay 1100. It’s all trade ins and upgrades. I pay less than 50 cents a day. We go to store I have been with carrier for ten years. I could not buy with cash a new phone. My PA ID expired a few months ago. I don’t drive. It’s just ID. I haven’t replaced it because when it expired DMV was largely shut down. You had to make an appointment. I had a wallet filled with credit cards and expired ID. It’s only a few months expired. I have been with carrier for ten plus years. What fraud could I commit. I need Shay to have a phone. I know where she is at all times. We have prime so I can see every picture she takes. I could not buy a new phone with cash the worker had to swipe my ID. It wouldn’t go through. It’s only a few months expired. Invalid but you can vote. We left phone store battery went dead when she recharged it worked again. It’s the iPhone 12. Think about it I could not buy a phone from a large company where I have been a customer for more than a decade with an expired ID but you can vote. I wasn’t even adding a line just new phone they swipe it gets rejected. I was mad. Why should I have to pay the state of PA like 40 dollars to prove I am me. A driver’s license is different. You pay for using state roads. I can’t buy a phone for a 15 year old on an existing account but anyone can vote.

      In the summer of 1972, Hillary was seeing Don Henley while living with gay Bill Clinton in Houston Texas. She is bi-sexual like her lovely wife who I’m trying to have coffee and croissant with. Anyway they were campaigning for George McGovern that summer. Please. This is Garbo Royal Right and Goldwater Girl Hillary. The Clintons returned to Yale that fall, Don Henley released this song, the Watergate break-in earlier that summer was not yet public, Nixon got a second term.

I tell her I am an asshole but to no avail.. I got sick when I heard Laura Ingraham talk about what he did to dogs. You know who else hurt puppies Jeffrey Dahmer. Fauci creeps me the fuck out.

    Texas Law Enforcement Storm Border With Scores Of Vehicles, Secure Area After Biden Failed

    Law enforcement officials with the state of Texas appear to have taken control of the situation in Del Rio, Texas, after the Biden administration repeatedly failed to stop tens of thousands of migrants from illegally entering the United States.

  46. elliesmom says:

    It’s interesting how the stories about yesterday’s “nothingburger” in DC are starting to unfold. The Sunday talking heads haven’t weighed in yet. The three narratives appear to be 1) the folks on the right either don’t care or agree the people who “stormed the castle” deserve to be in jail, 2) folks on the right were cowered by the show of force, or 3) they knew it was a set-up and were too smart to play into it. I was hoping for a solid sign for #3, and I think we got it. At any protest I have ever attended for any cause, there has always been a contingent of people there who couldn’t care less about the issue. They just want to throw rocks and yell obscenities. If your protest also attracts people who want to sabotage your cause, then those groups can outnumber the people legitimately protesting, and the folks organizing the protest lose control.

    Yesterday’s “rally” had all of the earmarks of a protest that had more of a chance to hurt the cause than help it. Trump’s intervention is what saved it, in my opinion. Now it’s time for the organizers to abandon their strategy of a full frontal attack and go for guerilla warfare instead. Lots of smaller rallies all over the country, many in friendly territory. Make it look like the whole country is in support of them, People have forgotten how the Vietnam War protests started. They only remember how they ended.

    • 1539days says:

      There’s some evidence that the J6 rally was manipulated by the Capitol police and some instigators to create an insurrection narrative. If the people in jail were actually put on trial, they could demand the footage that could show this be released. Instead, the Injustice Department is just waiting them out, offering freedom in exchange for felony confessions.

    • Somebody says:

      I believe there are plans for protests at various state capitals in the coming weeks. I’m hopeful that those will be better attended.

      Yesterday was definitely going to be a set up and I agree with you that Trump telling people to stay away took care of that. The guy that organized the protest and is organizing other ones is a former Trump campaign guy. He was a tech guy with the campaign, his name is Matt Braynard.

      I think his intentions are sincere, he just may be a bit naive in the ways of the swamp. I know I personally am appalled at the treatment and detention of people from Jan 6th. They are political prisoners plain and simple. I never thought I’d see such a thing in this country. Many are only charged with misdemeanors and yet they are in jail. The judge keeps refusing to release them and hasn’t forced the government to shit or get off the pot with trials.

      I think the people that broke windows should be charged, but they’ve arrested people that never even entered the building.

      • lyn5 says:

        Matt spoke well yesterday, and he told the crowd to support law enforcement. I agree with em that small and local rallies for the Jan6 political prisoners will be best. I regularly write to my RINO congressman about them. Will have to do the same to my loser Dem senators who are lawyers. They should know better. My last email to them called the Democrats the party of mass destruction. I kept it short and sweet. Their replies go to spam and are deleted without reading.

        • 1539days says:

          This is how the Tea Party started, too. I attended one about 10 minutes from my house, ironically near a Revolutionary War battle site, in 2010, the president remained the same, but he lost his lackeys in the House because of the election results.

      • Constance says:

        And they are still arresting and hunting people in their demented show of power. I refer to it as the DC Progressive gulag when talking to libs. It really fuels their hatred and cognitive dissonance.

  47. threewickets says:

    More than ever Ted Turner is in charge of Warner, Anderson Cooper, Bill Maher, and Jeff Zucker. Ted Turner is from Greta Garbo same as Hillary, Biden, Marilyn, Kissinger, Redford, Newman, Nicholson. Ted Turner is the global CIA-MSM decider.

    Last night I thought about making some pie crust so I could make a quiche this morning, but I watched an episode of “Pie in the Sky” and went to bed instead. No chilled pie crust in the fridge, but there’s waffle batter, fresh blueberries, and breakfast sausage. Also croissants and fresh eggs, cheese, and ham for an omelet. The issue isn’t there’s nothing for brunch. It’s that the distance between my livingroom and my kitchen appears to have become insurmountable.

    • threewickets says:

      Yum quiche. I arrived in the United States in the summer of 1970 on a BOAC flight from Heathrow. We landed at Kennedy, I had picked by “American” name on the flight over. Then an Eastern flight to Cleveland Hopkins where some friendly nuns welcomed the family. We drove to Lorain where my father would work at the local Catholic hospital and I would attend the local Catholic school. My Kennedy bio dad was two hours further west in Toledo. I only learned about my Kennedy genes (on my own) after my father died two years ago. I presume my bio dad is still alive, but I haven’t spoken to him in a while. We’ve never spoken to each other with the knowledge that we are related.

      • threewickets says:

        Steven Spielberg’s “Munich” is a beautifully shot and acted 2005 Tawana Studios film about the Mossad’s vendetta assassinations of Arabs for the 1976 Tawana coordinated CIA kidnapping and televised murder of the Israeli Olympic Team at the Munich Summer Games. I remember the film ends with a dramatic camera pan across the flags at the United Nations in Henry Kissinger’s backyard. What does that even mean, Steven Spielberg?

      • threewickets says:

        Unlike Pearl Harbor, the invasion of China in 1931 by British-American Imperial Japan with help from Chiang Kai-shek’s Nationalists was very real of course. In “Empire of the Sun” the beautiful film starring young Christian Bale, Steven Spielberg (miraculously for him) manages to not be historically inaccurate by avoiding the macro politics of the day.

      • threewickets says:

        Bertolucci’s “The Last Emperor” was also historically accurate. Puyi was the end of the three century old Manchu-bloodline Qing Dynasty in China. He lived out his years in Beijing. Current Foreign Minister of China Wang Yi also has Manchu roots.

      • threewickets says:

        Like many blood Bourbons in the 19th century, many Manchu Qing Dynasty royals ran away to Canada and the United States in the 20th century. The Ivy League and especially Yale University became a sort of sleep-away camp for legacy royal kids. They are pretty much the American plutocracy today.

      • threewickets says:

        It is possible that while Joseph P Kennedy was US Ambassador to the Court of St James in London, he may have made my bio father with one of Puyi’s daughters (in vitro or in vivo) at the LSE. I have Puyi’s nose and lips. If true, Puyi’s daughter would be a scientist. None of my other grandparents have a math and science brain, and I do.

      • threewickets says:

      • threewickets says:

      • threewickets says:

        When Puyi and Wanrong were 16, they made a daughter who when she was 16 coupled (somehow) with US Ambassador to the Court of St James Joseph P Kennedy in 1938 and made my bio dad. The London School of Economics organized. In 1938, Puyi was out of power and living with his royal family in British-American Imperial Japan occupied Manchuria.

      • threewickets says:

        One person who definitely knew about all this was George Soros Liberace Rothschild (son of PAV Uncle Sam Rothschild and Abby Greene Rockefeller, born for real circa 1915). He was a grad student at the London School of Economics in 1938 when Joseph P Kennedy was US Ambassador to the Kingdom.

      Just roll out of bed and into the kitchen

    • foxyladi14 says:

      Are you still in pain from your fall em? ❤

      • elliesmom says:

        No, I recovered from that pretty quickly. Ellie was a nice soft cushion. Thank you for asking. ❤ I'm just having a lazy day today. The sunshine finally lured me out onto the deck to have some waffles. I made a couple of extra sausages for the pups. They seem content to just be outside with me. We'll see how long it is before Ellie fetches her leash. Hank pulled the cover off the grill and made himself a bed in the sun with it so I won't be hearing from him for awhile. 🙂

    • Somebody says:

      This morning I wanted a pastry, not sure exactly what but was leaning toward a danish. Aside from a stale grocery store version my only option close by is Panera. It’s pouring rain and it’s Sunday, I figured we’d pop in and pop out of Panera.

      OMG, there was a line in the RAIN. Like fools hubby and I stood in the line. We almost made it to the register to order, but ended up walking out. We were about 5 people away from being served, but almost everything was gone. What they had left was not of interest to me. Hubby had his eye on the cinnamon rolls, but when the last one was sold we left.

      It was bizarre, I don’t know what the deal was. The employees at Panera seemed completely overwhelmed too. Across the way dunking donuts was packed and the line for the drive thru stretched around the building and out into the shopping center parking lot.

      I’m not big on sweets, especially in the morning, just not my thing. I quit smoking so I think I was craving a danish to replace a cigarette. In the end I got neither, I’m probably better off for it, I surely didn’t need the calories.

      • 1539days says:

        It’s the lack of employees. Even if they could serve everyone, they can’t make enough food for a larger crowd on a dreary day. I didn’t buy an iced tea at McDonald’s because the drive thru line was so long.

    • 1539days says:

      This morning, I got take out Eggs Benedict from Denny’s.
      Pro tip: Don’t get take out Eggs Benedict.

      • lateblum says:

        So sorry. 🥴

      • elliesmom says:

        Eggs benedict is all about the hollandaise sauce. Next time ask for it on the side. Then if it loses something in the translation, you can still enjoy the rest of the dish. If you’re bringing the eggs benedict home, you can reheat the sauce in 15 seconds on, 15 seconds off bursts in the microwave until it’s hot enough for you. Of all of the “mother sauces” it’s the fussiest one. Poached is my least favorite way to eat eggs so I was glad when we moved on to bearnaise sauce in culinary school. The picky-eaters were the most fun in class. “Organ meats” were a hoot. 🙂

        • 1539days says:

          They were a bit skimpy on the Hollandaise, and it tasted like a mix. There’s a breakfast place that makes it from scratch around here, but it’s pretty packed. I’ve gotten theirs to go and it stays together pretty well and they don’t skimp on the sauce.

          I’ve made Hollandaise from a packet before. It doesn’t separate as much, but it’s got a different flavor (bland, but lemony). If I make the sauce, I can just buy an English muffin, which was created to be a fast food version of Eggs Benedict.

      • threewickets says:

        Pro tip: if you’re ever in Tokyo with a craving for ramen, no better spot than Denny’s.

    A doctor who owns an abortion mill in Texas has performed an abortion on a fetus with a discernable heartbeat and is daring someone to sue him. The new Texas law will kill his business so he has a financial interest in the law. Here’s the thing. If someone who supports abortion initiates the lawsuit to prove a point, the point the person risks making is the Texas law might be upheld at the Supreme Court. Then that person gets his or her name attached to the Supreme Court decision that overturns Roe v Wade. There is no need for the folks who are prolife to rush to file a lawsuit against him. While he might still be performing abortions himself, the law is putting a chill on the number of unborn babies being killed by others. Everyone in his abortion chop shop is also in danger of being sued, and while $10,000 might be a drop in the bucket to him, it might not be to his receptionist, etc. Let the number of abortions performed at his business add up, and he might find himself working alone. No rush. A little patience.

      My personal opinion is that the vaccinated are spreading it to each other. The last exposure where I work was just such a case. I happen to think the mask removal thing was a bad thing, but it also lead to vaccinate people thinking everything was back to normal and having spreading behavior.

      If you want to get the vaccine, great. Of course, it will take a month now until you are “fully vaccinated.” By then, this surge will be over. And if you end up in the hospital 13 days after your final shot, they’ll count you as unvaccinated for the purposes of propaganda.

      I agree! No more veterinary medicine for humans . Each person has their own needs and feelings and is entitled to make their own decisions about Covid. No herd medicine for us.

    Kid cuteness: We just finished the third season of Star Trek: Discovery and my kids ADORE Philippa Georgiou, played by Michelle Yeoh. So I got them the DVD of Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon–and now my oldest daughter insists on wearing her “FIGHT LIKE A GIRL” sweatshirt–all the time. I may have created a small, fiesty monster.

      I can’t really condone showing ST:D to, well, anyone, but isn’t this Philippa Georgiou mostly evil?

      • jadzia1971 says:

        Yeah, but after all these years Michelle Yeoh remains a great athlete and her character is funny to boot. We’ve moved on to Picard, which isn’t great.

        • 1539days says:

          I haven’t watched Picard, but I understand it’s really depressing where Discovery is just really dumb and woke.

          • jadzia1971 says:

            Discovery’s storyline is not awesome, but there are some really great characters, primarily Tilly, Georgiou, and the princess whose name is escaping me at the moment. Sonequa Green-Martin’s character was really disappointing and I’m wondering if she wonders, “I left The Walking Dead for THIS?” Because she is a good actress but boy is she saddled with some shit material, and having seen her in other things I can’t believe that it was her artistic decision to spend three seasons whispering on the verge of tears.

      China has already destroyed the concept of family with their single child policy, so why not? Plus, it started in Japan, where the young population has almost stopped having actual sex at this point.

        Well, i’ve got a bunch of kids and STILL haven’t found a man who reliably listens, so I’m thinking a French franchise is in order.

    HALLELUJAH! After ten years of being told that garbage disposals are illegal here, and many many false starts with Internet searches that sent me to Quebecois retailers, I have found what appears to be France’s ONLY retailer of garbage disposals for home use. Naturally, they are about 500 euros but I DON’T CARE I DON’T CARE.

    And they sell trash compactors, too.

    And those little boiling-water faucets that would enable me to get rid of the ugly plastic water boiler on the counter.

    Mama needs a second job. MY KITCHEN IS GOING TO SMELL BETTER!!!!! I am literally just waiting on these guys to get back to me to confirm that there is an installer in my area, a job that any American husband could do, but since these things are unheard of here, I am not trusting the H-man with it. He has an enormous gym weight system to install today, anyhow, thanks to our banning from all the bien-pensant gyms as a result of the vaccine passport. I waited six months for this thing to arrive and it’s finally here.
