      Very clever, great clown face.

      I can hear my grandmother saying, “Poor dear! To be afflicted with Saint Vitus’ Dance. And so young.” Her comments sent me to the library so many times. I learned about so many things trying to figure out whether she was serious or not.

    Has anyone seen the Green Comet? I keep forgetting to look for it.

        I think LGBs should be allowed to adopt children as long as they aren’t used as trophy children as Buttgiggle has done.

        • elliesmom says:

          The problem is we don’t know for sure how any adoptive parents are going to use children after they adopt them no matter what their sexual orientation is. A lot of celebrities adopt kids for publicity. What we need are adoption services who scrutinize all applicants with the same due diligence.

          For example, how carefully were the two gay men in Georgia who are accused of massive child sexual abuse? One of them even had a previous sex abuse record. Would the agency have approved a heterosexual couple if one of them was a sex offender? Or not checked? Saying no to some protected classes is a 3rd rail. Adoption agencies need to be brave enough to refuse some clients.

          The issue should always be what is best for the children above all else. If you live a lifestyle that precludes producing children, then your need to be a parent is secondary to the child’s needs. Some same sex couples make great parents and should be eligible to adopt. Some shouldn’t.

    The temperatures are falling fast here so as soon as the sun came out, Ellie and I headed out for our walk. It’s currently 19 degrees, and the wind chill factor makes it feel like 3. I’m sure it’s colder than that down on the beach, but Ellie gave me no argument about just waving at the winter ducks as we went by. Today I wore what ED called my Chicago coat. It’s fluffy and white, long enough to cover my thighs, with a big hood, and because it wasn’t sized for a short person, I can pull my hands up into the sleeves. Today I wore a fleece pullover and vest under it and gloves. Tomorrow I will probably need to swap the fleece vest for my down one, wear mittens over my gloves, and add some leggings under my pants. But the sun is shining and the air is crisp and clean so I’m all good with it. “The cold never bothered me anyway.” I’ve raised the temperature a bit on my thermostat to give my furnace a better chance of keeping Ellie and me warm overnight. It’s supposed to be -7.

    Several of my comments didn’t show up.

    I think spammy is still picking on me. -)

    • DeniseVB says:

      I just got 9 more out of the filter. Sometimes spammy gets triggered if a lot of comments come from one account in a short period of time, they just get moved to the filter for a human to check 🙂

      There is a report that the 14 yo bully has been arrested…

    • taw46 says:

      Her 10-yr old brother was also attacked on the same bus.

      • lateblum says:

        Yes. The mom pulled the kids out because she had been reporting the bullying for weeks and had received no response from the school. Those administrators should be fired. Teachers who had know of the abuse the kids were receiving should lose their jobs as well.

        • taw46 says:

          All of them should be fired. Why can’t the bus driver pull over and call the police? Children are so vulnerable when they are in school. They look to the school officials to protect them, not happening in so many schools.

    Is the balloon in the same area where the Chinese bought land near our air force bases?

    I know – everybody knows – that’s what Trump would have done.

    • swanspirit says:

      If Trump were President, there would be no ( insert long string of curse words here) Chinese balloons.

    • taw46 says:

      They have had ample opportunity to shoot it down.

      • lateblum says:

        Per FoxNews, this story has not been covered on other news networks. I wonder if that is true though, with Blinken cancelling his trip to China over this incursion.

        Per some, the govt has known about this balloon since it first appeared above the Aleutians and have been following it all the way down over Canada and Montana and the Midwest… there have been “reasons” provided for not having brought it down.

        If Biden allows this, what else will he permit?

    Can you imagine sailing on seas with waves like these?

    • taw46 says:

      No, it’s why I would never take an ocean cruise, much less cross the ocean in a sailboat.

      • lateblum says:

        I have been on two different “boats”. One was the boat-train that sailed from Dublin, Ireland to Swansea, Wales. A pretty big vessel. The second was a boat crossing from the mainland to Martha’s Vineyard. Got sick on both. “Never Again” has a couple of meanings for me.

        • helenk3 says:

          I took him on a train trip to Boston when my son was young. we got off and took a boat to Martha’s Vineyard. On the boat trip, the captain let my son steer the boat. Picture yourself 8 years old and doing this. We stayed overnight and my son caught the brass ring on the merry-go-round. then we took a boat back to the mainland and continued to Boston. I took him to see the USS Constitution. On the train ride home, I got a kiss and he told me it was the best weekend of his life. One of my best memories of him

        • taw46 says:

          I’ve taken the ferries from mainland Greece to different islands and I loved it, such beautiful scenery passing the islands. But that wasn’t like being out on the ocean. And even then, one time we took an overnight ferry and we woke up about 4am as the boat was rocking side to side. We got up, got dressed (it was hard to stay upright), and headed up top for drinks. 😁

          • lateblum says:

            That ferry from Dublin was an overnight trip as well. I could not lie down without having to get right back up because I couldn’t tolerate the movement of the boat on the water. I doubt drinks from anywhere would’ve helped me.

          • taw46 says:

            If we had stayed below, we likely would have been very ill, it was rolling so much. We felt better, once on top.

      • Somebody says:

        We went on a cruise once, gale force winds, seas 18 to 20 feet. I was seasick the entire time, even though we sailed out of the front I never recovered.

        On our way back we were running side by side with another ship. We had to go back into that front🙄 Thankfully we turned to go into port, so we knew the torture would soon end. About an hour or so later that ship that had been beside us was hit by a rogue wave. I think it was a Norwegian ship, it made the news. The wave came into the cabins, it was like 7 stories high or something crazy like that.

        I told my husband that rogue wave was looking for me and I’d never go on another cruise, although since then I’ve conceded to trying a river cruise.

        We have crazy vacations, I wish I knew why. When hubby and I travel alone we seem to do OK, but add the kids and oh boy. Stuff happens around us, but not to us. Like hostages tied up in the hotel room next to us, escape convicts in shoot outs, bombs, landslides, discovery of dead bodies🙄 cray, cray. If we stay in the SE we’re fine though.

        • lateblum says:

          Oh My Goodness!!! Remind me to not go on vacation near you.

          • Somebody says:

            🤣🤣 Years ago a large group of air traffic controllers planned a cruise, they got a really good group rate. Hubby heard about it, called me and signed us up to go.

            Every single person canceled, all of them🤣 The whole trip was canceled. One guy told us he’d seen the Poseidon Adventure, he didn’t want to live it🤣

            There were several group trips after that, but we didn’t find out until after the fact. We’d be like, hey nobody told us. They’d all shrug and say imagine that🤣 A group of them had a disastrous trip to New Orleans. All we had to say was, we never even thought about New Orleans that weekend🤣

            Again, hubby and I traveling alone we don’t seem to have issues, but family trips? Crazy!

          • taw46 says:

            LOL, I don’t blame them, no vacations with you two!
