    What’s that?

    I need to visit this garden. ❤

      You should plan a trip to Atlanta EM. It’s really easy to get a flight to ATL, since it’s the busiest Airport in the US😉 Generally speaking hotels are quite affordable in Atlanta, although you’ll need to rent a car, they do have public transportation but it’s somewhat spotty.

      I’d suggest a trip in the fall or spring. Summers in Atlanta are brutal and if they happen to get snow flurries the city shuts down. I personally prefer to stay in the suburbs, some of which are gorgeous.

      There are a variety of things to do in Atlanta and even more attractions a short drive from Atlanta. If your focus will be gardens, just to the southwest of Atlanta is Calloway Gardens, famous for their dazzling azaleas every spring. Calloway is also home to the victory gardens. You may not have any interest in the Civil War, but Stone Mountain is an absolutely gorgeous 3,200 acre state park, with several attractions outside of the relief on the mountain.

      Atlanta has an aquarium, an observatory that is rarely crowded and a variety of museums, including the Carter Presidential museum. As well as a lot of good restaurants. I’ve mentioned before it used to be on Thursday evenings the botanical gardens had little jazz ensembles throughout the gardens as well as food kiosks with tasting menus, sponsored by various area restaurants and wine stations. It’s quite a lovely way to tour the gardens if you time it right with the time change. I think it starts at 5pm. The gardens also has a nice gift shop.

        Snow flurries are referring to a winter visit😉

        I’ve been to Atlanta before. I just missed this garden. 🙂 As southern cities go, it’s not one of my favorites. I love Savannah, but Atlanta doesn’t have its charm. My dad’s side of the family is scattered through the Carolinas and the Virginias so I’ve been south of the Mason-Dixon frequently. When I’m flying, I prefer a route that takes me through Charlotte. I’ve hiked part of the Applachian Trail in GA, but because it’s the beginning, it tends to be more crowded than some other parts. It didn’t have much of a “wilderness” feel to it. The scenery is beautiful, though. If I head south again, I expect South Carolina will be my destination.

    Part 1 of the Project Veritas expose of the vaccines has dropped.

    I think this is called drowning in bs

    • taw46 says:

      They lie about the Haitians in Del Rio. They flew a few hundred to Haiti but are releasing thousands into the US.

      • Constance says:

        That was an obvious lie from the start. Most of the Haitians had been living in Brazil before they crashed on in.

        • taw46 says:

          Right, Brazil and Chile, many since 2010. And according to interviews with some of them, had a nice life. Then Biden said “come on over!”, so they came to make their life even better.

    • lateblum says:

      Does she not fucking hear what she’s saying??? I’ve said it before and I’m saying it now… how does she live with herself and her role in this bs?
      I hope her kids do to her, what she’s doing to the nation.

    • lateblum says:

      Great question. But whoever trusts this administration – and I know there are millions who do – deserves to be thrown to those same wolves who are eating us all alive. I’m so sick of the lies and hypocrisy and disrespect of the people who are “leading” the country. And it’s only 9 months into a 48 month term.

    Last night two of my young friends announced their engagement on FB. While I know both of them quite well, I’ve known him longer. My reply, “I’m so happy for both of you. You belong together.” His response, “Thank you so much. Your approval means a lot to me.”

    Her response, “You surprise me. I didn’t expect you to be someone who equates being married to letting someone else own me. That’s not the kind of relationship I would ever agree to.”

    I’d like to reply, “Run, Tom run!” lol

    I just saw the info about a recall of Kale due to possible listeria. At first I paid no attention to it, but then realized there are plenty of people here who could be affected.

  12. foxyladi14 says:

    To hale with the kale. 😯

  13. SHV says:

    Thanks for posting..I have/had a bag of Kroger Kale in fridge, now in trash…It was labeled Best By 09-21-2021…not in recall date but not worth the risk.

    Just a reminder that the new program, American Dream Home, starts tonight at 8:00p on Fox Business Channel. Followed by Mansion Global at 9:00p. The first one sounds good, normal people working and saving to buy their dream homes. 10 episodes at the beach and 10 in the mountains. The first episode is the Florida Keys. The Mansion show is just about rich people mansions, lol. Should be a fun escape for us.

    • lateblum says:

      They talked about these shows on Mornings with Maria this morning. I look forward to them both.

      • taw46 says:

        Me too. I especially want to see how they describe KW tonight. Most shows focus on the few crazies that live down here or the tourists who come down to drink. Rarely do they talk about the normal people who live here year round. And they never talk about all the theater, art, and music. So we will see, lol.

    Biden pledges ‘relentless diplomacy’ on global challenges

    UNITED NATIONS (AP) — President Joe Biden summoned the world’s nations to forcefully address the festering global issues of the COVID-19 pandemic, climate change and human rights abuses in his first address before the U.N. General Assembly on Tuesday. He decried military conflict and insisted the U.S. is not seeking “a new Cold War” with China.

    The president said the halting of U.S. military operations in Afghanistan last month, ending America’s longest war, set the table for his administration to shift its attention to intensive diplomacy at a moment with no shortage of crises facing the globe.

    “To deliver for our own people, we must also engage deeply with the rest of the world,” he said.

    He added: “We’re opening a new era of relentless diplomacy, of using the power of our development aid to invest in new ways of lifting people up around the world.”
    GREAT! More Nation Building.
    “The power of our development $AID$

    • lateblum says:

      Did he happen to mention the Afghan family that he murdered by drone? He could’ve shared that it was an example of his “relentless diplomacy” and “deep engagement with the world”.

    I just saw this and wanted to share the simply beautiful story.

    I just yelled at Geraldo on The Five !!! He just said, and I quote, “It was the kindness of Joe Biden that created the crisis on the border”. I am undone. That anyone would refer to Biden as “kind” is mindless.

    • lateblum says:

      Awesome!

        I am not interested in faking a pass or anything like that (which I might have heard is easy to do), because feigned compliance is still compliance as far as I’m concerned. However, if I had Macron’s pass I would absolutely waltz my ass into a restaurant using that. Realistically, the worst thing that would happen would be that they would throw me out.

        Today I learned from my ex, who has to check those passes as part of his job, that when you show the QR code nobody is allowed to check your ID to see if the QR code is actually yours, except for the police. So not the hotel desk clerk, not the bartender, not the restaurant hostess. None of whom even want to be doing it anyway.

        • lateblum says:

          That’s good to know if I ever get to France. And, btw, I completely agree with you about fake passports or vax cards. 😘

  22. elliesmom says:

    The can opener didn’t work. I put new batteries in it, pushed the button, and nothing happened. I thought maybe the pop top was getting in the way, but it wouldn’t open a can without one, either. So it will be going back to Amazon. I’m not going to have them replace it. I’ll look for something different.

    Barry The Owl Was Poisoned Before Central Park Truck Hit Her

    Barry, the beloved barred owl who died last month in Central Park in a collision with a truck, carried a potentially lethal level of rat poison that could have impaired her flying, a necropsy shows.

    The 2-year-old feathered favorite of bird watchers inside Manhattan’s largest park died at around 2:30 a.m. on Aug. 6 after being struck by a Central Park Conservancy maintenance vehicle.
