Someone has a sigline about the enemy with a tool and we didn't recognize it till it was too late.

I'm paraphrasing, of course. And it was longer than that. Something about nobody recognized it.

I tried Googling it and didn't come up with it.

So, if anyone knows what I'm referring to, I'd be very happy to see it.

I think it's highly applicable for our time.

Thanks in advance!

This was a test. It was only a test...........and it finally worked!

I had to figure out how to get the appropriate link to make the photo show up in a way that was clean and without extra stuff at the bottom of the photo. What a relief.

I have decided to cast my lot in with Smugmug.

I have successfully signed up and uploaded a few photos.

Can anyone give me a basic tutorial on how to navigate the site? I am a bit lost.

Looks like Postimage has gone belly up and I am tired of trying to get my photos onto the site. One of the ones I posted here has disappeared from my thread. That is unacceptable.

I have a 14 day free account with Smugmug and so I want to get used to it before that's over.

Thanks in advance!

Random shots from last night...

The sun was setting and I felt like taking some photos of my now-blooming jacaranda tree.

Then I saw ..........something else.

Mueller's investigation isn't going to 'wrap up'--Today's LA Times, OP-ED

The inquiry isn’t going to end simply or painlessly for Trump.

By Harry Litman

Thursday marks the one-year anniversary of the appointment of special counsel Robert S. Mueller III. The milestone has emboldened White House critics of the probe to declare, as Vice President Mike Pence did on NBC News, that “it is time to wrap it up.”
Never mind that the Mueller investigation is, comparatively, in its infancy. The Whitewater probe of Bill and Hillary Clinton, for example, began in 1994 and ended more than six years later. Mueller’s 12 months of work has turned up more clear wrongdoing than Kenneth Starr ever did: There have been 20 indictments and 5 guilty pleas, including prominent senior members of the campaign and administration, and that doesn’t take into account the wealth of information that Mueller has yet to make public.
Some Republicans suggest that public opinion is shifting, that Trump’s refrain of “witch hunt” may be gaining purchase. As the president’s latest mouthpiece Rudolph W. Giuliani crowed, “We’ve gone from defense to offense.”
“Wrap it up” advocates can point to a slight uptick in Trump’s approval ratings, and a downtick in public support for the investigation. They seem to think that if Mueller doesn’t close up shop soon in response to political pressure, Trump’s position is strong enough that he could put an end to it, perhaps by firing the special counsel or the special counsel’s boss, Deputy Atty. Gen. Rod Rosenstein, and weather any storm the move occasions.
They’re wrong. The probe isn’t going to end soon, simply or painlessly for this president. Trump remains in great peril.
Anyone paying attention over the last year knows Mueller will not yield to political pressure. His investigators haven’t leaked; they have ignored vicious personal attacks; they haven’t veered in the slightest from prosecutorial professionalism.
