Don't ever think moose are easy!

They are BIG (even the ladies and calves). But mostly all you have to do to get them off your drive area or out of your garden (and I plant extra cabbage every year) is play hard rock!

We just had another earthquake, about a 5.0 (getting good at guessing).

Kitty is hiding out. Neighbordog is pitching a fit, and it's way too warm for this time of year.

Still left over from the big one in Anchorage, I guess.

Don't reply, just needed to vent. We live in a small cabin that rocks and rolls.

Are middle-Americans really that fucking stupid?

We've got Kentucky, Ohio, Kansas and Missouri weighing in on the really fucking stupid side. We can add more. WTF? Is our educational system that lacking there?

I doubt these athletic kids (I can say kids, I'm old) will touch a single bite.

They're individual IQ's are higher than the combined IQ of 45's entire misadministration.

I'd take them out for steaks, shrimp, lobster, whatever their individual choices - there are some extremely great restaurants in the DC area, and these kids are CHAMPIONS!! (They beat my 'Bama, but I still love 'em.)

So, so sorry to read about your mom.

Health care in the U.S. is basically nonexistent if you don't have big $$ over and above private insurance and Medicare (both, for my spouse). I would not go to our only hospital for ANY reason. Fly me to Seattle where the doctors and nurses actually have training!

Sending you extreme good karma. Remember to take care of YOU, too!

Thank you. Long time lurker, but finally found the guts to join.

"worse than Watergate" includes murder. Tricky Dick was a thief but didn't kill anyone except those he sent to Viet Nam.
