  1. Here is the best description of of all, and from a Republican: Trump Defined.pdf
  2. The old roses are still the best Er, like some of US
  3. The newer hybrids look so glorious, but no, they do NOT smell so wonderful. Sigh.
  4. The sight has always been wonderful - this year so many are blooming so close to the deck and house that the scent is just as lovely.'
  5. Every year i wonder if the pink climbing roses will come back. They do - this is what they looked like a few weeks ago when they were just starting to bloom:
  6. Yup - little series of black holes On the other hand, Heronswood just opened up again, yesterday, for members and volunteers and tribal members only. It was gorgeous, and I did NOT take the camera, because they wanted us to stick to certain laid out paths, and a limited time, and both of THOSE vanish instantly when the camera is involved. Everyone was very good, and wearing their masks and it was not at all crowded. Next time, iWILL take the camera.
  7. Of course it made sense - cougars are cats, and cats are always opportunists.
  8. that the migraine was the farewell one indeed. A certain animal was always spoiled but has become ridiculously so during the stay-at-home weeks. Fortunately for her, she IS pretty cute:
  9. Yup. A lot of people and organizations are finding out the hard way that this isn't "business as usual" and these protests aren't going away. Not until some meaningful, fundamental changes are made.
  10. The aforesaid change of position is fortunate for moi, because, before i had decided not to go back to my esoteric lodge, i had paid about $50 ahead on a Starbucks card, since we had a mandatory pit stop at Starbucks on the way up from Seattle to Burnaby. Since the driver of the van loves Starbucks. i don't, and wouldn't go there on my own for what they pass off as "coffee" but they do have some edible breakfast sandwiches and so on. i had been trying last night to figure out what to do with the $50 since Starbucks had my money and i didn't want to let them keep it but didn't want it to look like i was supporting them. i had considered going in, ordering $50 worth of stuff and then dumping it all into a trash can inside the store with a nasty comment. Or finding some way to buy and give away, not so easy in these times. Now i will just sneak in every so often and get one of the edible items.
  11. AND this just in from my current home area - imagine that the who owns Starbucks was threatening to run for President: https://www.marketwatch.com/story/starbucks-reverses-policy-to-allow-workers-to-wear-black-lives-matters-apparel-2020-06-12?link=MW_latest_news
  12. And now, this, from San Francisco - and once again, i am proud of the great city i was born in - it sends a pretty unmistakable message: https://www.sfgate.com/commute/article/Muni-SFMTA-will-not-transport-SFPD-to-SF-protests-15328138.php
  13. Yup - evidently Jeff Bezos hasn't made enough money from Amazon to make the WA Post free online. Oh, and some of the assholes in blue ARRESTED a staff photographer/reporter for the USToday NETWORK in Dover, Delaware. Those blassholes were state police.fd And quite a few assholes have found themselves without jobs due to stuff like mocking the Floyd killing in their yard in New Jersey while a protest march went by. Someone filmed them, and one guy, an employee of FedEx, was fired. Another, a NJ state corrections officer, has been suspended. Sigh.
  14. You know, it occurs to moi that some of the old "thought-they-were-the-epitome-of-liberals" at the old Pink Place would be amazed to see what i REALLY think about a lot of issues
  15. i think there will be. i particularly liked the bit calling out the police unions, and, no, there should be NO room in the labor movement for organizations which defend and protect dangerous scumbags who should never have been able to wear badges in the first place, and certainly should have been removed long ago. And although totally "defunding" the police isn't the solution, taking some of their money away instead of giving them more and more of it is a damned fine way to get their attention. https://www.nbclosangeles.com/news/when-protesters-cry-defund-the-police-what-does-it-mean/2376366/
  16. My Dad - the youngest dispatcher in the Longshoremen's Union in Seattle, long ago - would have been proud of this: https://gcaptain.com/u-s-west-coast-dockworkers-stop-work-in-protest-of-george-floyd-killing/
  17. Yes, they were - and the reply was excellent when it came, too.
  18. And a middle school asked for food donations since more than 100 of their pupils live in the area where all of the stores were burned, and were hoping for "100 bags of groceries" - and laundry soap, etc. This is what they got:
  19. And the official memorial fund on GoFundMe is now over $10,000,000 and donations are still coming in every minute.
