Already love them too.

About 6 weeks ago as I stood on my front porch readying my courage to endure the pain of making my old ailing knees walk down the steps to take my big sweet Lab on her late night walk. She stayed unusually frozen by my side and halted her breath. Then, with silent footsteps, a beautiful little fox walked straight across the driveway, only ~15' away, directly in front of us and into the porch light. I froze too. It was magical. This gorgeous kit was totally unaware of our presence as it looked straight ahead.

My big baby girl was as transfixed as I was watching this stunning little red beauty cross our path. We both waited until she/he disappeared into the woods on the other side of our lawn before we moved.

Missy girl looked up at me, as if to say, "Mom, did you see THAT?"

What a sight! Just magical.

Our heavily wooded neighborhood is an officially designated Wildlife Preserve here on Virginia's east coast.

I spent at least 25 mins in research this evening

Trying to sort out all the Russians now dead or seriously ill in England, including their backgrounds and connections. Interesting but scary stuff.
No wonder PM Theresa May is livid .

Conclusion: Putin always gets even.

Yep. $11 mil is pocket change for them....

"Charles and David Koch alone have a combined net worth of $96.6 billion as of November 2017."

Did you read the article?

According to my hubs, a PhD theoretical physicist, what he said make sense, theoretically of course.

Her tenure of crimes began under Shrub & Cheney.

Besides, there's a zero chance that TRump's Republican justice dept. will charge her with any crimes. So damn the ECCHR and Europe in general; after all, they offend Putin.

"Donald Trump Is A Symptom Of A Greater Evil: The Rotten Core Of The Republican Party."

So, yep, it's impossible!

Sick! "The 'ugly' reality of child marriage in the U.S."

From CBS News last year:
"In a survey of marriage licenses compiled by Unchained At Last, at least 167,000 children under 18 were married in the U.S. between 2000 and 2010. (That number is likely on the conservative side, as Unchained At Last could obtain age data from only 38 U.S. states.)

The vast majority of those children were girls married off to adult men, Reiss said."

Read whole article, please:

Then see the chart on Wikipedia on
"Age of marriage in the United States."
The exceptions, my gawd!

And this shit is supported by "good christian" folk! All Hump45 voters, I'm sure.
