    Wow, that is some diorama!!! I love it!.

    East Coasters might not be in so bad shape. Baltimore is keeping the port open, and inviting ships.

      A lot are leaving the 5 week California wait and opting for the 7 day Panama Canal route to Florida and Texas. Funny that the news has covered the back logs but not the solutions that are working…..in red states so far 😀

        The Smart States! 😀

      • lateblum says:

        We all know that if the states that had the solutions were Blue, the coverage wou”d be non-stop. Amy Klobuchar would be recommending the Congressional Gold Medal to those governors rather than Prince, who made the nation “cool”.

    Sorry I was MIA yesterday. I had a great day Sunday, cooked ribs and mac and cheese for company, and then woke up at 4am with pain, that turned out to be yet another kidney stone. I have been able to sit some out at home with ibuprofen and Tylenol, but not this one. Spent all morning in the ER, had IV Toradol for pain, had a scan, and something for nausea, and came home, about noon. I was able to eat a bit, and then fell asleep on the couch and didn’t wake up til around 6pm.
    Thank Goddess for Toradol. It’s a very strong NSAID, and they used to give it orally and IV, but now only IV, because it can cause stomach bleeds. Am still pain free, and plan to have a good day today.
    You don’t get rid of me that easy!! 🤓

    do you really want this anywhere neat your kids or grandkids?

    Just think, Kamala came to Virginia to bash this lady………..

    • lateblum says:

      It’s tough to justify sleeping with your boss or someone more senior with you when there are successful and accomplished women who got there from honest hard work and love of people less fortunate. So I would guess Kamala felt justified in bashing her.

      Also love that uniform.

    This is so me……….

    • elliesmom says:

      Friends and family think I’m an extrovert because next to Elliesdad, I was the life of the party. But gearing up to host a party means I need a week to recharge after it’s over. The real difference between an extrovert and an introvert isn’t how talkative we are. It’s what we do to recharge our batteries. Do we get dressed up and go out into the world, or do we stay in our pjs with a mug of cocoa and a book? Years ago I just barely registered on the extrovert side of the Meyers-Briggs, but as I get older I’ve been sliding over the line. This past year might have finally changed that (E) to an (I).

      • swanspirit says:

        When I took the Meyers-Briggs, I was an xntp, the x meaning I was equally extroverted and introverted. Not any more. I am now INTP, with a smidge of agoraphobia thrown in for good measure. I don’t know about the other letters now, it’s been a long time since I took it, the last time.

        • elliesmom says:

          I had to take the Meyers-Briggs as part of my teacher training. The point was to learn how to identify personality types, and how other personality types interacted with our own. We studied the types before we took the test and had to predict what our classmates would be. At that point I was an ENTJ. The others in my class had all predicted that’s what I would be. I predicted my prof would be an ISFP because if ever there were too opposites, it was she and I. When I came home and talked about it, Elliesdad decided he needed to take the test, too. He was an INTP like you. 🙂 Those two are very compatible most of the time until you try to make a major purchase. Then the P and the J have a difficult time. One enjoys the process of shopping and takes a long time deciding. The other knows what she wants and buys it. 🙂

      • DandyTIger says:

        Yes, agree. I’m on the extrovert side of things. I get such an energy charge being around and talking to people. But I know to shut my trap and be cool when the non verbal input indicates that. 🙂

      • jadzia1971 says:

        Yep. I like people, truly, but they exhaust me. Even the kids. The first day of every school vacation they are at Grandma’s, I basically lie around and do fuck-all just to recharge. The next day, I start to miss them them.

    • Mt.Laurel says:

      I have always fallen fully in the introvert zone. One of the reasons I love email/online appointments is I find it easier than cold calling people I do not know/know well. My parents pushed me to be more “social” like my brothers who were all extroverts . I did work on it and many people assume I am outgoing by nature. Nope. I always need a nice nap when I get home. Its exhausting.

      I keep seeing that the debate over work from home often falls along the lines of introvert versus extrovert. Those that need to see and be seen on a constant basis and want to be in the office versus those that are happy with a few check-ins through out the day and maybe a day in the office here and there.

    • elliesmom says:

      If you’ve never taken the Meyers-Briggs, and you’d like to, here’s a link to the test. There are lots of sites where you can do it, but they either charge you a fee or collect identifying info about you. This site makes you add up your score yourself. You can print out the score sheet to make it easier. The upside is no one but you sees the info. It’s not a parlor game. Many clergy use it in premarital counseling. There’s lots of info out there to see what the results mean. We used a book by Kiersey that specifically related to the classroom, and if you search for kiersey, you’ll find lots of other stuff- but don’t take the test at one of his sites unless you want to get inundated with junk from them. I don’t think Meyers-Briggs is the be all to end all, but understanding it did make me a better teacher.

      you have no idea of just how much this article hurts. foster children and children in orphanages are treated as 2nd class children and have no rights, they are called the throwaway children by some.

      Since covid, the bar across the street from the mooners has had live music out in the parking lot.
      A friend plays there in a Grateful Dead tribute band.
      I’d never been to a Dead concert before going to see him. Now I’m thinking of getting me some Rit. 😉

    I just laughed so hard. On Outnumbered today, Kennedy explained the reason bid-on needs the wall around his beach house. Because he has a really noisy neighbor named Brandon.

    • lateblum says:

      Kennedy is really quick and funny. I really like her on Outnumbered.
      Now they’re talking about the upcoming shortage of bottles for wine and other alcoholic beverages that will lead to no more wine . . .

    • DandyTIger says:

      Also heard the joke that they want the wall there so he doesn’t wander off into the neighbors yard.

    Thinking of you, Jadzia 🙂

    • jadzia1971 says:

      I fucking love Zemmour. The center-right party (“Les Republicains”) will join hands and sing kumbya with Micron to defeat him, of course. Zemmour isn’t the “right sort” of people, don’t ya know.

      • jadzia1971 says:

        And as far as the normies go, I can see the wealthy/white/scared of Marine Le Pen folks (i.e., my former inlaws) voting for him. I’m not 100% confident of the paysans checking the box for an intellectual Algerian/Berber Jew.

      Also, I SAW THE GILET JAUNES OUT PROTESTING THIS WEEKEND for the first time since the lockdowns started. Ha ha ha ha ha.

    Thinking of you, Denise 🙂

    • lateblum says:

      I heard an interview on the news this morning.the person they were speaking with was a mom from VA. She said that “Never” would she have ever seen herself voting for a Republican. Ever. But since the school issues that started last spring, she has not only rethought her position, but she cast her vote for Youngkin.
      Denise, is it possible that people have already begun voting?

    • DandyTIger says:

      Hope it’s enough to overcome the Dem cheating. I figure Youngkin needs to win by 20 points to result in winning by 1 point.

  23. Constance says:

    Oh great! Kim Wyman, Republican, WA Sec of State was just appointed leader of the Department of Homeland Security’s election security group. She is the highest ranking Republican state office holder on the west coast. And that is because they install a Republican who is a dope to run their corrupt elections. It’s not that she herself is corrupt, it’s that she is to damn dumb to realize what is going on around her. But she should make a great scape goat if the Dems ever get held accountable for rigging elections.

    Mollie @MZHemingway
    This CNN “senior reporter”/propagandist’s tweet is too stupid and/or mendacious for words. In fact, the mask says “Let’s Go Brandon.”

      A reply from a leftist moron who thinks Fuck Joe Biden is a workaholic like Trump …

      Frustrated @sadforourworld Replying to @Olivia_Beavers

      Gosh, it must be rough for Republicans having a President who works. They celebrated racist mediocrity with their pubescent bully-in-chief and all his time spent addicted to Twitter and Fox News. These GOP morons don’t know what to do with themselves.

      They didn’t go far enough in condemning Fauci. He is a modern Mengele. They also did experiments on Aids orphans, besides beagles, and monkeys.

      Glenn Greenwald @ggreenwald

      Trump “is not a leader and should be ostracized from any political future, what he honestly needs to do is go away! — 1/6 defendant Thomas Sibick, writing a letter renouncing his political views on Trump, to be released from pre-trial prison.

      Glenn Greenwald @ggreenwald

      He should have been made to throw darts at a picture of Trump’s face before he was released, to prove he really meant it. Maybe Judge Berman Jackson will consider that for the next defendant seeking to be released from this harsh prison despite having been convicted of no crime.

      Prisoners who pledge loyalty to Joe Biden and write a letter highlighting Nancy Pelosi’s best attributes should have their sentence reduced by at least 1/3.
