    Good Morning.

    I’ve never been to Idaho, but it’s definitely on my list if I still have time. 🙂

    Gorgeous picture!

    • DeniseVB says:

      I fell in love with the scenery a FB friend posts from her daughter who lives in Coeur d’Alene. It’s like the perfect outdoor sports destination, who knew Idaho was so beautiful !

      • lateblum says:

        When dd#1 was moving to Seattle a few years ago, she drove – alone – from Chicago to WA. She was so excited when she saw the beauty and the possibility of spending outdoor time in ID. Thank you for posting this. I think, I’ll send the picture to her. She will enjoy it.

        Coeur d’Alene had a nice campground in the ’60s. My parents had wheels on their butts during vacations, and we traveled all over the northwest and stayed at campgrounds in Seattle, Vancouver, BC, and Calgary, for example.

    • Constance says:

      Idaho is just beautiful. My daughter went to school in Pullman,WA about 10 miles from Idaho so we would drive into Idaho for a look around when we visited. The Old Spiral Highway into Lewiston is amazing. We found a hotel room in Riggins at the Salmon Rapids Lodge that had an amazing patio on the river and they kept baking fresh cookies and delicious coffee. Hell’s Canyon is beautiful and we really liked McCall.

      The perspective is such you can imagine yourself walking about the town window shopping then enjoying a chocolate soda while watching the boats on the lake and the small aircraft coming and going from the local airport.

    I’m afraid it will never end.

    Wednesdays are such a pain in the ass. This is the FINAL YEAR that I’ve got three elementary-school kids with no school on Wednesdays, currently known as The Day It Is Impossible To Get Any Work Done. By the lady who has a six-week trial starting the Monday after Thanksgiving and six briefs due the day before her birthday.

    Next school year cannot come soon enough. In addition to the Wednesday thing, my policy is that personal chauffeur services end when middle school begins. I’m going to feel like I’m on a freaking vacation. Enjoy the BUS and your BIKES, les enfants!!!!!

    • Somebody says:

      Good luck on your trial. I’m sure you’ll do a good job. I’m surprised France allows anyone into a court without a Vax passport.

      No school on Wednesdays? I assume for planning purposes. The kids here in Florida get out early on Wednesdays to allow for planning time. Hopefully my grandkids will be grown or at least in high school before the early release Wednesday morphs into all day like France.

      • jadzia1971 says:

        Thank you! My firm is in California. Where most of the judges I’ve been dealing with over the last few years are doing everything they can remotely. I had a trial in Palm Springs last winter that I did from my living room!

        On the school thing, I believe that for my generation, kids had Wednesday off but they did have to go to school on Saturday mornings. Somehow that morphed into just having the Wednesday off. It’s just for elementary school, but sometimes you (I) get unlucky and end up with a kid in THE ONE SECTION of the middle school that still gets Wednesdays off for Reasons. Hopefully this will not happen again next year when the final 2 hit middle school.

        The reason I hate the Wednesday thing is that it is terrible for mothers. First, I know French people work fewer hours, but they are generally expected to show up every day. Second, the towns keep changing the fucking rules every year, which is even WORSE for working mothers, who have to go to their employers every year and negotiate some new way to deal with the school situation. Why doesn’t the government just tattoo the phrase “DON’T HIRE ME” on the forehead of every mother in the country? Seems like that approach would involve fewer steps.

      • Constance says:

        If they just allow the money to follow the children so parents can pick the best school for their kids the Public Schools will collapse. It can’t happen soon enough.

  4. Dora says:

    Preparing for the next one?

    • Constance says:

      Oh….The FBI must have been so jealous of someone else having a deadly virus. They had to rush right in an snatch it up.

  5. Dora says:

    • jadzia1971 says:

      They have those things here, too. I’ve never seen anyone actually use it. Because fuck that. If businesses start enforcing this bullshit, I won’t be carrying a mobile phone anymore.

  6. Dora says:

    • Constance says:

      HA! I’ve been bitching about this for years so I could dump MSNBC and CNN. I do support his call for Cable TV a la Carte.

      • lyn5 says:

        That’s when the judge has to step up and dismiss with prejudice.

      • Constance says:

        That will happen regardless of what the verdict is. The judge should should step in and any Leftist carrying out harassment or violence against an juror or should never be free again.

    • Miranda says:

      I am betting that the jury will provide a verdict Friday, and I’m also betting that they’ve been told to do so because people trying to go back and forth to work will make the ensuing riots worse. Husband disagrees, saying the jury wouldn’t put up with it, and of course, I could be wrong. We’ll see.

    • lateblum says:

      Well, if he does, and if he wins, it may restore some meaning to the award. The operative words here are if and may.

    • elliesmom says:

      No snow in the forecast and no temps below freezing here so I think I’m still good to go, and I’m not going very far. The hardest part of driving in bad weather is usually just getting down my driveway, though.

      • lyn5 says:

        From the Kenosha Eye (via Ace):

        Kenosha’s DA, Michael Graveley (D) made the decision to charge Rittenhouse with a large plethora of felonies. Usually Graveley takes high profile cases, but in this case, he didn�t want to. Most of the legal community believes that the State will be unable to obtain a conviction against Rittenhouse. Instead of a possible “L” Graveley tasked two of his most liberal prosecutors to prosecute Rittenhouse — Jason Zapf, son of the embattled former Kenosha DA, Robert Zapf and T. Clair Binger, a Racine man who unsuccessfully ran for Racine DA and was involved in at least one physical domestic disturbance with a girlfriend.

  8. lateblum says:

    I’m going out again. I cannot tolerate the news and the tension I feel when I’m home these days. Lately, with all the stress r/t Covid, Biden lies, the trial, the economy, etc. I’ve taken to watching Hallmark Christmas movies again. (YouTubeTV added the Hallmark channels to its program lineup last week) Because the ota reception is so sketchy in my building, my son added me to his family plan last spring. Bless him.

      Try to have fun!

    • DeniseVB says:

      I don’t have the streaming services, but I do follow Disney fanatics who live stream from all the parks. It’s actually the only place I’ve never heard politics mentioned once, probably the only safe space left, lol.

    • taw46 says:

      Lol, I have been doing the same, watching Hallmark movies. They have upped their game, making some better movies. However, have you noticed they have become “woke”? Not overboard, but it is there with their movies from this year and last.
      Everything since the election last year has disgusted me, that’s why I dropped out for awhile. I am trying really hard not to do that again, so trying to walk more, watch more movies, and read. Our season has started down here, so we will be attending a play tonight, and our Film Festival starts tomorrow. All of that, everything, was cancelled last year. So maybe it will help, now that the fun things are back.

      • Mt.Laurel says:

        I now look to see what year documentaries, shows and movies were released. I have found looking for BB (Before Barry) a good indicator. Up through mid 2000’s generally safe but the 2008-2010 are often at the edge.

      • lateblum says:

        I realized before I canceled cable tv that the Hallmark movies were becoming more and more woke. And yes. The year of the movies (or documentaries) is often a predictor of what I expect to see.

        • taw46 says:

          The Hallmark ones I noticed were released in 2020 and 2021. As for as regular movies, I go for the older ones mostly. I will watch new movies if they don’t sound too woke, lol.

          • lateblum says:

            Same here. I did find a couple of “new” Hallmark movies that I found to be quite touching this week.

          • lateblum says:

            Did you see “Christmas Town”? I thought it was sweet. But tbh, I’ve stuck with the older ones, too.

          • taw46 says:

            I have probably seen all of the Hallmark movies, lol. The changes are subtle, more diversity, which is ok, but just obvious. What I noticed was corporate jobs are bad, must now work for non-profits or planning to quit and do so. Just seems to be more of that now.
            I watch more movies on TCM than anywhere else, many I have seen before but I rewatch. And as I said, I do watch new movies on Netflix or Amazon if they aren’t too woke. Me, who tried to see as many new movies as I could, who always had seen just about every movie nominated for Oscars in a given year. Those days are long gone. {sigh}

          • lateblum says:

            I know exactly what you mean. 🥺 At Christmastime friends and family would give me gift cards to the movie houses nearby. Now, one of them – the largest – has shut down permanently and the others have a vaccine + facemasks policy. There’s no end in sight of the Covid restrictions and there’s no end in sight of the idiocy of the Hollywood and movie making industry. So between those two factors, I may never see a movie except by streaming it again.

    Is this true about the bricks? A repeat of last summer?

    • taw46 says:

      I don’t know if any of these photos are current, but apparently the police scanner does report pallets of bricks around the city.

      • DeniseVB says:

        Looks like it’s still summer in Wisconsin. I saw an earlier conversation on construction projects around the city and that it’s taking 3-6 months to get bricks delivered? Makes sense with shortages in FJB World 🙂

    Oh God! I just got a email from a group that suggests that Biden will appoint Harris to the Supreme Court to get rid of her as VP. Not sure whose place she would take but wouldn’t put it past them to Arkancide an inconvenient Justice.

    • lateblum says:

      They’re targeting Breyer. They’re afraid that Breyer might die while still actively serving on SCOTUS.
      I heard it on the news this afternoon while driving home. The news came from The Guardian in the UK.

    Constance, where did you order Ivermectin from? My daughter wants to have some on hand just in case?

      It’s BS like this ⬆️ that makes me want to throw in whatever towel I can find and turnoff internet, television, radio and all other forms of communication. These people are so full of it that I can hardly stand it.

    https://getpocket.com/explore/item/dorothy-thompson-the-journalist-who-warned-the-world-about-adolf-hitler?utm_source=pocket-newtab

    right now I am reading a book by Barbara Bradford called the women in his life. the part I am reading right now is about Germany in 1938, the rise of hitler, krystal night, and how many wealthy Jews whose families had lived Germany for hundreds of years and their blindness to just what hitler was doing. Look at 2020 the riots (krystal nights) all over the country. the wealthy that think there are immune from the consequences of encouraging the dems and their actions. Look at the threats to those not in lockstep with the vaccinations. I do not know if I am overreacting or not
    look at the damage soros has done to our courts. We live in interesting times

      The H-man was thrilled when Morocco established ties with Israel. Not only because it’s the right thing to do (there remains a small Jewish community in Morocco and some of the high government officials are Jewish) but because it’s opened up some interesting business opportunities for him.

    Remember how excited I was for Wednesday to be over so I could get the kids to school and get some work done? Well, thanks to a covid case in the class of the two youngest kids, apparently it’s gonna be Wednesday for the rest of the week. FML.
