      It truly is amazing! 🙂

      That is incredible!!

      Check out my tail-span, baby!

      • DeniseVB says:

        Hey, it turned me on 😀 Our local zoo has a few peacocks who roam at large and I did catch one Floof (?) out and it was spectacular in person. Mother Nature did well designing this specie.

    • elliesmom says:

      He’s such a show-off! 🙂

    • foxyladi14 says:

      That is incredibly amazing! 🙂

    • Mt.Laurel says:

      One of the volunteers with our rescue lives a bit further from the 9th circle of the swamp where these is still farmland and they have horses, pigs, goats, chickens and assorted rescued wildlife. Hubby volunteers with a wild life rescue and heard about one of the illegal zoos being shut down I think in New jersey and the animals auctioned off so they headed off to see if there were any they could take on at least on a temp basis. They returned with peacocks because they realized most bidders were looking to get for them for just the feathers and started contacting people about a permanent sanctuary. The male peacocks are indeed beautiful but those birds are LOUD. They had to move to find a sanctuary because the peacocks scarred the heck out of most of the other animals and could be heard quite distance from their home. Although the cats were fascinated.

      This is similar to what they had going on day (and night).

      • Somebody says:

        True confession. I can make peacock sounds, I’m good enough to get the boys to fluff and strut. My kids used to beg me to make peacock calls, and yes I’m loud.🤭

        I remember one time we were all out on my sister’s boat. There were peacocks on the bank a pretty good distance away. My BIL was involved in the conversation and insisted the peacocks would never hear me. My response was “Want to bet?”. My sister was sunning herself in the back.

        I let out a hellaciously loud call, a couple of studs headed for the shoreline all puffed out, strutting and calling back to me. My BIL was impressed and amused. We didn’t even notice for a minute or two that I had startled my sister and she had fallen overboard. My sister was not amused. For years it was a thing where my kids would beg me to make peacock sounds and my sister would scream no and cover her ears or if she pissed me off I’d let out my inner peacock. I haven’t made peacock calls or thought about that in years. I wonder if I still “have it”.🤣🤣

        You didn’t know about my hidden ahem talents now did you?

        • Mt.Laurel says:

          😊 My Boy cat would love you. He heard that bit playing and came running and was disappointed to find it was from that darn black box.

    • Anthony says:

      I had about 30-35 of them living on my property when I lived in Jamaica WI. Beautiful as all get out, but NOISY af…

    • lateblum says:

      Plus, he has a great personality!

    • taw46 says:

      There was a neighborhood in Merritt Island that had quite a few of them. When I lived up there, we would periodically drive around to see them. They were loud and they perched on the roofs of the houses. But oh my, were they gorgeous. I was able to walk up to them and take some photos. I remember before I moved that another group was in Cocoa Beach and those neighbors didn’t like them at all.

  2. Dora says:

    Good Morning.

    This sounds kind of sick!


    It’s the first we’ve heard about Covid’: ‘Forgotten’ Amazon tribes are vaccinated for disease they’d never heard of until Peruvian medical team arrives by boat with shots for everyone.

    • Mt.Laurel says:

      Why would they even be looking for such isolated tribes. If covid managed to make its way in to that group they would have developed immunity on their own in such small closed society. The shots are likely far more dangerous to those people.

  3. Dora says:

    The accusations were all over the news. This story, not so much.


    Man Pleads Guilty In Attempt to Extort Gaetz’s Father; Rep. Gaetz Says It Proves His Innocence

  4. DeniseVB says:

    True story….

    • elliesmom says:

      Worth a long listen. His voice gets easier to listen to after you adjust to it.

      • Somebody says:

        Does it really? You’re not pulling our leg are you? I’ve heard this is a good interview, but his voice grates on my nerves. I was thinking I’d prefer to read the transcript.

        • elliesmom says:

          He has a neurological disorder that has affected his vocal cords. When my ear adjusted to it, I didn’t find him hard to listen to. There was something going on with Tucker’s studio sound system that affected both Tucker and Kennedy that I found more distracting. I had a student with horrible handwriting that several of his teachers balked at having to read, but they wouldn’t let him use a keyboard in class. After deciphering a couple of his papers, I didn’t have any problem. I taught four different courses, and he took all of them. Before I watched this interview, I thought this Kennedy was a nutcase, but now I’ve changed my mind.

  5. Mothy67 says:

    Things that make you go hmmmmm?
    Omicron is an anagram of moronic.

    • elliesmom says:

      So far all of the people who have tested positive for the omicron version are fully-vaccinated people. One might speculate “omicron” is actually a delayed side effect to the vaccines. Or that omicron is a variant only produced by vaccinated people.

      • foxyladi14 says:

        Or just the common cold! 😀

      • 1539days says:

        This would tend to support the leaky vaccine theory where the original disease is moderately dangerous, but the mutated version eventually becomes deadly to the unvaccinated while still giving symptoms to the vaccinated.

        Also, interesting how this new variant was created and reported in the US the day after Thanksgiving, so that they can blame the new “wave” on exotic variants instead of the fact that boosters are about as worthless as the vaccines that everyone knows by (pharmaceutical company) name.

        • elliesmom says:

          The normal trajectory for a virus is to become less deadly, but more transmissible over time. A virus that kills its host’s circle of transmission is usually much smaller than one that just makes its host sick.

          • 1539days says:

            Depends on the virus. SARS was very deadly and seemed to burn itself out, but Ebola, Rabies and even the Plague keep showing up.

            The leaky vaccine and more deadly mutations were seen in something called Marek’s disease that occurs in chickens.

      • Mt.Laurel says:

        I was getting blips about this all day yesterday. Biden shuts down USA to African tourists and business travelers but not the hordes of illegals at the southern border who bring far more public health nightmares than covid.

        • lateblum says:

          GMTA Mt Laurel.I was thinking about it all yesterday too, and then woke up angry with the same thoughts today.

      • votermom says:

        I think it’s a variant in produced by the vaccine

  6. lyn5 says:

    From Surber’s place … to all the New Yawkers.

    • 1539days says:

      The Dems keep saying the “solution” is green energy. It very well could be in 50 years, but trying to accelerate it by driving Americans into poverty over exploding energy prices is going to be a nice Christmas present for the Republicans in 2022.

    may he RIP. this man brought a lot of joy to the world of music

  8. elliesmom says:

    I just got a “winter care package” in the mail from Blue Cross. The spring one had a water bottle, some resistance bands, and a gym towel. This one has cough drops, lip balm, a bottle of Centrum Silver, 100 Vitamin D tablets, tooth paste, brush, and flossers, a personal first aid kit and a box of bandaids, a digital thermometer, a bottle of hand sanitizer, and a box of surgical masks. All fullsize no “samples”. I’m not ungrateful. It’s a nice package. But I do wonder if it has something to do with “open enrollment” time. 🙂 The box had one of the graphics they use to indicate what’s in it is fragile. It’s a wine glass. That coupled with the printing “care package” on it did set different expectations for the contents. 😉

    • Mt.Laurel says:

      I had to go look this up as the timing was interesting. It seems many of the Blue Cross plans started this last year but the contents vary a little around the country. Some include $50 gift cards to local grocers and/or the option for frozen meals to be delivered for up to 14 days ( two meals per day a week at a time).

      But alas, no spirits of any kind.🍹🍷🍸🥃👻👻

      • lyn5 says:

        Have received nothing from BC/BS.

        • Mt.Laurel says:

          I gather it started with a few of the regional BCBSs with the highest proportions of 65+. Then others started coming up with their own variations. Capital Care Blue Cross (swampland) evidently sent their first ones in August last year but grocery help has to be requested (instruction on how request help were included in the care pack). It does seem that some are sutosending while others you can sign into your insurer and see if they are offering. am assuming it also might vary on whether it is traditional Medicare Supplemental or one of their Medicare Advantage plans and where you live even within a particular region.

  11. Dora says:

    Stephen Sondheim has passed. 91 and a legend in musical theater and a composer of brilliant music. Sondheim said about this song:

    “Send in the Clowns” was never meant to be a soaring ballad; it’s a song of regret. And it’s a song of a lady who is too upset and too angry to speak– meaning to sing for a very long time. She is furious, but she doesn’t want to make a scene in front of Fredrik because she recognizes that his obsession with his 18-year-old wife is unbreakable. So she gives up; so it’s a song of regret and anger, and therefore fits in with short-breathed phrases.”

    • DeniseVB says:

      RIP Stephen Sondhiem. This was probably 10 years ago and was lucky to have nabbed tickets to his 80th birthday celebration concert at Lincoln Center’s Avery Hall. “The Duet of the Sweeneys”, the older Sweeny’s Len Cariou who now plays the patriarch (Tom Selleck’s dad) in Blue Bloods.

      • DeniseVB says:

        Correction: That’s George Hearn, not Len Cariou. They all looked alike in their Sweeney make up 😉

      • lateblum says:

        Nice story, Denise! I never saw Sweeney Todd on B’way, but I did see it at the Ravinia Park Summer Music Festival. Twice. The second time I saw it with Patti LuPone and Michael Cerveris just before it went opened in NYC with those two stars. Yet another night of Magic at Ravinia.
        Speaking of Magic, I also saw “A Little Night Music” at Ravinia as well. Also with Patti LuPone and I cannot recall who played with her that summer. Sondheim gave us brilliance and fun and thoughtfulness and enhanced all our lives with his genius. What a lucky time to be alive.
        Thanks to Stephen Sondheim for all these memories and so many more.

      • Mt.Laurel says:

        Here is Len Cariou (a.k.a. Michel Hagerty from Murder She Wrote) with Glynis Johns, both original Broadway cast members, recreating their roles and here you see and hear Fredrik as well. Slightly different from Dench but also as intended – short bursts sung with anger and tears coming through. Not a sappy ballad.

        • lateblum says:

          My sister really knows theater. Really. She loves Len Cariou. I can understand why. What a beautiful voice. I never knew this. And Glynis Johns is one of my favorites. Thanks, Mt. Laurel. That was wonderful.

        • DeniseVB says:

          That was great, thanks.

        • Miranda says:

          I liked Catherine Zeta-Jones’ rendition.

          • Mt.Laurel says:

            I was not familiar with hers but found online. stage versions are often superior to the vocalists even those like old blues eyes. Some songs from musicals simply do not translate well out of context and arranged as singles.

          • lateblum says:

            So I just watched the CZJ video and loved it. I guess I wasn’t watching the Tonys in 2010 as I didn’t know of her work in “Night Music”. I’ve liked her since I saw her in “The Haunting” eons ago. The movie had numerous Hollywood stars including Liam Neeson, Lili Taylor and Bruce Dean among others. It had poor reviews. But I went anyway. I don’t know why because I don’t really care for horror movies. Maybe I thought it was supposed to be “campy”. I thought she stole the show and I’ve liked her ever since. Thank you.

    • SHV says:

      “either what this papers owner has done to spread disinformation and vax skepticism”
      This opinion piece is a bit “out in the weeds” but the bottom line is that COVID vaccination may produce antibodies that act like spike protein, Ab2 antibodies

      “Ab2 antibodies binding to the original receptor on normal cells therefore have the potential to mediate profound effects on the cell that could result in pathologic changes, particularly in the long term — long after the original antigen itself has disappeared.” (essentially causing an auto-immune disease)

      “A Possible Role for Anti-idiotype Antibodies in SARS-CoV-2 Infection and Vaccination”

      A month ago, this type of paper wouldn’t be published and if it were, would be labeled “disinformation and vax skepticism”. Now appearing in top tier medical journal.

      • SHV says:

        Just more and more strange, that, what would have been been called “anti-vax”, crack-pot conspiracy, etc. two months ago, is now appearing in the “best” medical publications.

        Another abstract re: major concern about COVID vaccines appearing in another top tier medical journal, “Circulation” a publication of the American Heart Association:

        “Abstract 10712: Mrna COVID Vaccines Dramatically Increase Endothelial Inflammatory Markers and ACS Risk as Measured by the PULS Cardiac Test: a Warning

        • Mt.Laurel says:

          These are both very interesting and more so because they have been allowed to see the light of day.

          • SHV says:

            “more so because they have been allowed to see the light of day.”
            Exactly….Both are basically opinion/speculation, interesting to think about but not new “science”….the fact that the editors “allowed to see the light of day” suggests what?? maybe there is a building amount of “science” that calls BS on the Party Line so that pressure for pre-publication censorship is breaking down and editors are trying to save the reputation of their publications.

      Thanks for posting it. I have been away from the internet today. I would’ve missed it. ❤️

    • jadzia1971 says:

      I cried too, a lot, but I also question what is the point of separating nonagenarians? Was it “the virus” that separated them or nursing home/government policies that favor leaving them to die alone because hey, at least they didn’t get Covid.

    More about Lin Wood. Sounds like he may have problems. I’m sorry to hear this. Really.


    L. Lin Wood, one of the attorneys who represented Nicholas Sandmann in several defamation cases against major media outlets, has been accused of “erratic” behavior by three of his former legal partners.

    According to The Cincinnati Enquirer, the lawsuit against Wood was filed late last week by attorneys Nicole Wade, Jonathon Grunberg, and Taylor Wilson.

    A damn shame, if true!


    Historic Notre Dame Cathedral Will Become Disneyland For Tourists

    The famous Paris Cathedral Notre Dame which suffered damage from a 2019 fire, will be turned into a kindergarten for adults. (November 26) revealed details of a plan which officially is labelled as “renovation.” It includes the removal of confessionals, the installation of sound and light effects, the scrapping of altars and statues.

    “It presents mild disease with symptoms being sore muscles and tiredness for a day or two not feeling well. So far, we have detected that those infected do not suffer the loss of taste or smell. They might have a slight cough. There are no prominent symptoms. Of those infected some are currently being treated at home,” said Dr. Coetzee.
