Once again, it was great today

to wake up and not have Larry Elder be my Governor.

**UPDATE on the kitties from the fire.**

Here is the problem.

There is nothing wrong with two intelligent people having different opinions on political matter. Discussing or even debating these differences can be educational and a good exercise for the mind. But where it all falls apart is when the person with the opposite view is so brainwashed and stupid that they are not even a worthy adversary. And that is where we are now.

So it looks like I lost about 50% of my vegetable garden in the fire.

There was a row of plants about 20 feet from the fire, some plants did better than others. Oh, well, it was nearing the end of the season and it's nothing compared to my neighbor who lost his entire home and car. I don't know how my neighbor is doing, I haven't seen him. The Red Cross was on the scene on wednesday, and I assume they are helping him out. I hope he is okay.

Rachel is doing a story right now

about dogs who can sniff out the Covid virus with an accuracy rate in the 90%s. They are using them in the Miami airport. For now, they are using them on employees reporting for work.

My question is how long until DeSantis bans the use of them?

If anyone thinks what Biden is doing is not

a good move politically, let me tell them what would be a worse political move - if on election day in 2024 all the ICU beds are still full and we were on our fifth booster shot.

Evacuated again. **UPDATE on the kitties**

Not a big forest fire this time, it was the mobile home next door to me. We're okay, and back in our place already. Fire department is only one mile away and responded promptly. No real damage to our place, but it was close. The two elderly men who lived there got out with a few minor burns. Two cats, who are outdoor cats are still missing.

It was a double-wide mobile home and it went from flames coming out of a bedroom window to a 100% involved fire in about 15 minutes. Very fast and very scary.

**9/14 - I have got one of the cats, safe and sound. I can't bring her in the house because I have two dogs and a small house (mobile home). She's in a large dog crate I have and enjoying a can of Tuna Fish on my porch. It was so sad yet cute, I was out side today, and the burned trailer has a side porch that faces my side porch. It's about 4X8 and was the entrance the cats used 24/7. They always left the door open all night for the cats to come and go.

I looked over there, and there she was just laying in the middle of the burned porch looking bewildered. Now these cats are very skittish and have never let me get within 10 feet of them. I was worried she would just run off if I approached her. She just laid there calmly and let out the sweetest meow and let me pick her up. The owners are staying with friends about 15 miles from here and will come get her in the morning. Maybe we'll get lucky and the other one will show up by then.**

A different take on Kashmir:

If you're wondering what excuse the anti-vaxers have

now that a vaccine has full FDA approval, here's one from a wingnut website:

Approval doesn't make it safer, it just makes it easier for the government to force it on you.

And there we are.

Warp Speed indeed.

I just love that the vaccine that has been approved first is the one that didn't participate in Operation Warp Speed.
