      Marylanders are very happy about that. But Baltimore politics is still a cesspool, stinks to high heaven.

        I think It’s a modern day hit. She is in someone’s way, pulled the short straw to the designated fall guy or she ticked off someone with more muscle and is no longer considered part of the inner circle. They let the MSM fire the shots and the courts to finish the job rather than cement shoes with fish or convent new high rise foundation.

      Sounds about right. Whatever Harris does is the wrong thing.

    Ronnie Spector of The Ronettes has died at age 78

    • Anthony says:

      Omg RIP. I have a personal history with her. I opened for her with my band at The Bottom Line when she finally got legal clearance from Phil’s ban on her ever performing again. She was a mess, and at first I wrote her off as a casualty of a ruthless business. As the week progressed, I discovered a broken woman with one steel strand of determination in her spine doing its best to drag her across the finish line. I became her champion at that moment, and defended her from the industry lies until she regained her rightful place as a performer. God bless her soul.

      • Dora says:

        I am so glad to hear that. When I read about the way she was treated by Spector, I felt so sorry. It’s good to know that you were there for her.

        You are a good person Anthony. But we all knew that already.

        • Anthony says:

          Thank you, Dora, but I can’t take any credit. Many of us spoke up to support her, but she did all the work herself. We all came together to rally around this delicate fragile sparrow who’s hypnotic warble gave you no other choice but to fall in love with her enchanting song. Once again, God bless her beautiful soul.

    “Where the mountains touch the sea.” Acadia and the Cape Cod National Seashore are the only national parks I’ve explored in the winter. Elliesdad was an Eagle Scout, but he didn’t like to camp very much. Hiking, climbing, and exploring absolutely, but at night he wanted a hot shower and a comfy bed. Acadia was a perfect destination for us because it shares Mount Desert Island, pronounced “dessert”, with Bar Harbor, which is home to many beautiful old mansions that have been turned into elegant inns.

    Most of the land that is Acadia today was once owned by the Rockefellers. When it was their summer place, they built miles and miles of carriage roads across the island, and they would take their guests on tours in horse drawn carriages. You can still hire a driver to take you on a carriage tour. In the winter the trails are kept open for cross-country skiing. There are warming huts scattered along the way. There was a time when the two of us could do a 30 mile loop before returning to the inn to enjoy dinner in front of the fireplace. On one of our summer trips my in-laws came with us, and they stopped and bought a house on their way home. Talk about buying souvenirs. 🙂

      ” Bar Harbor,”
      ****
      Funny, what associations are made by an elderly brain. When I think of Bar Harbor, I think of the Eggs Benedict at the 2 Cats Restaurant; perfectly poached eggs, a very rare thing.

        Wild blueberry pancakes on the porch at the Mary Jane. 🙂

        • lyn5 says:

          Because 2021 was a bad year for huckleberries in Montana, the Black Cat Bakery used wild Maine blueberries in its sour cream coffee cake. It was delicious. (The Missoula bakery has Christmas mail order every year. )

          • elliesmom says:

            When I took my Girl Scout troop camping at Acadia one August, I made each of them carry a small container in their daypacks because so many of the trails take you through wild blueberry patches. The idea was to make pancakes with the blueberries, but everyday the girls ate them before they ever made them into pancakes. One of the other adults was determined they were going to make blueberry pancakes so she got in her car and found a farm stand. Cultivated blueberries are good, but oh! the wild ones.

      She’s a Democrat I could get behind- so far.

      • lateblum says:

        She was the only Democrat that I could get behind in 2020. Hers was the only election petition – to have her name placed on the ballot – that I signed in 2020. I only saw 1 Tulsi campaign yard sign in all of Evanston. The memo to support Biden didn’t quite make it to the most expensive/exclusive neighborhood in town until later.

      I’ve come to realize the empty shelves near me are not going to fill back up any time soon. Going shopping again to stock up on some things. I reordered the Quercetin and zinc and melatonin yesterday. I pick it up today at the health goods store.

    • Miranda says:

      This isn’t from China, but there was no chicken at Publix today. None, zip, nada. They’re also limiting the cat food you can buy, but I have a decent stash of that. Basically, I’m just getting it whenever I find it in stock anywhere.

      • lyn5 says:

        Limiting cat food? Grrrrrrrr.

        • Miranda says:

          Yeah, it’s really hard to get either Friskies or Fancy Feast in stock, so they’re limiting the amount customers can buy.

      • Mt.Laurel says:

        I am glad I get my groceries delivered because I need the shopping time to hunt for cat food for my own gang and the items that are never in stock.

        Our rescue group, like others, is having a hard time keeping backup supplies to help new fosters starting out and those with cats on special diets.

        • mcnorman says:

          My vet pharmacy told me that the special diets in particular are becoming difficult to secure. I don’t want to hoard, but what options do we have with Rx diets?

          • Mt.Laurel says:

            My prescription was hard to get last year so I stretched. have an extra bag and case now and want to keep that level for emergencies as I have noticed really getting extremely sparse again.

            also finding almost everything for wet food for the other cats is fish which sets two of their systems off. Although there are plenty of treats.

        • elliesmom says:

          Have you tried Chewy.com? Ellie and Hank’s food is on autoship. When the dog food shelves were empty the last time, they never missed a beat.

          • 1539days says:

            My sister went to Chewy after the stores were empty for her cat’s wet food.

          • lyn5 says:

            For some reason, amazon gave me huge discounts on two cases of cat food when I subscribed.

          • Mt.Laurel says:

            I use petco for auto kibble and the prescription has been ok after blips early last year but they too are often subbing/ out of wet food and mostly fish which I have to watch as it disagrees with two of the cats.

            Chewy uses fed ex, at least in this area, and they leave all packages at the mail boxes So I never bothered as it’s awkward to get them up three flights of stairs. I did ask some of the fosters thinking maybe I could have delivered to the office where I could take so many cans home at a time and they said it was no better than the stores in terms of stock.

            Ended up auto with amazon for a wet variety mix mine can have and will eat and it helps fill out and if it’s out of stock they offer several alternatives and usually one works well enough. Then I seek out the rest in person but it’s getting tight again. I may need to see if I can increase that to two cases.

    If that is not something like peak insane, what is? At least, among the cohort in our land who are susceptible to that madness, which is actually not a majority of the people in this land. Hence, I have news for you: we are now at the turning point. Americans are rejecting blue insanity. We are fixing to drag that old blue dog to the doghouse, where it can cool out for two years before we put it down for good. And a couple more things: “Joe Biden” is done running for president, and Liz Cheney is done running for Congress, or anything else. Welcome back to reality. Let the sun shine in.

      …Is the Post suggesting that these charges convert this riot into an insurrection? Even if proven, this is a tiny percentage of those charged. Are the hundreds charged with trespass or unlawful entry now going to be charged with seditious conspiracy? No.

    • lateblum says:

      Shortly after the Catholic Church removed “Eating Meat on Fridays” from its list of mortal sins, a cartoon appeared in the New Yorker. It showed Satan standing at the gates of hell with a group of people hovering/burning together under a sign that said “Ate Meat On Friday”. There was a little devil looking up at Satan while pointing at the group saying, “Now what do we do with those guys?”

    So far, I’ve not been punished into getting the jab. The place where I work had a vaccine requirement, but sort of dropped it. They were going to enforce OSHA, but now that is gone. I was seriously thinking about it and at this point, I don’t think I’m even going to submit to weekly testing if required. The new job is okay but I have an exit strategy and pulling the trigger early is doable. Also, when most people finally give up on fighting an endemic virus, the job market will still be hot.

      I’m about to join the Great Resignation myself. Hoping to have it funded by my current clown show employers, but I’m not depending on it. I figure by my birthday, in 3 weeks. No way any business in this world but my own deserves my skills and efforts. Good luck Days!
