Remembering Mom

This photo pops up in my Facebook feed every year around this time. My family seems to like to commemorate death anniversaries, and I respect their feelings, but when I share or re-post, my friends send condolences that are sincere but I'm not fishing for them.
She had a full life - limited by the narrowness of her options, but full none-the-less -  and it was time to go. Her memory is a solid guide for any moral decision. May we all do as well.

Near my bus stop: Lost Baby Dalek

This was there but now it's gone off. I hope it found its home!

My take on a meme going around. My Trump-loving friends are mighty quiet about his picking on the girl but I'm sure they'll fit it into their worldview somehow.

I Caught The Early Bus Home. Ooops.

I caught the early bus home. That meant I'd be in time for Thursday Zumba yay! But ... someone cut in front of the bus. The drizzle didn't help. The driver hit the brakes and we could feel the bus slow amazingly fast - one guy slide off his sideways-facing seat into the aisle. BANG! The little car drove off, then stopped at the other side of the light. A taillight shown white, showing he'd gotten some damage. I knew I was getting home late. All things considered, everyone got off easy, but there's a lesson here somewhere, if we care to think about it.

Strawberry Groundcover

I love this stuff and other steppable periennials. They look nicer in all seasons, but especially now as the days grow short. No mowing or watering plus better biodiversity = better in all ways!

The False Romance Of Russia

Conservative Russiophilia is especially misguided

The False Romance Of Russia: American conservatives who find themselves identifying with Putin’s regime refuse to see the country for what it actually is.

Not my greatest accomplishment but something I'm happy about

It's An Honorable Life

Man, I sure wish this played around here!

Guilt Beyond A Reasonable Doubt

THIS is how you question a witness. 4 minutes 39 seconds to prove corruption beyond a reasonable doubt. LOL. It won't make a difference to his cultists; they are wilfully blind. But at least everyone else can see what's up.
