General Discussion / Re: the "things you wish you could say" thread

Grr! We've been asking for website input for years. No one has responded.

Now, with a transition coming up, it's the focus of everyone's "new ideas," "dreams" and "Hopes!" and you can't even say "thanks" when we show you what we did do to update it in accordance with the new project we're working on....you just start in on this issue and that one, and you want stupid big pictures and print instead of an indexed, well-structured site.

My take on it is fast becoming: "When things are in flux, people take it out on the website."

And as a corollary: I'm only going to do minimal changes and cleanup, because it's clear you're going to trash the whole thing anyway.

Grumble....

It's sad, and sobering, to see I'm not alone in saying this: W. Schaub says the "new," post-impeachment Trump is the most dangerous one:

He's most concerned that by increased "normalization" of outrageous incursions on the democratic process, the numbing or "whatever" response of the wider populace clears the way for more abuses.

Sounds right to me.

But don't worry! You can hold him accountable by voting him out of office! /sarcasm

I can't recall who it was, now, but someone was interested in medieval African studies. This series is still continuing and there's an online post of a recent presesentation on the topic here:

If her feet are dry or have gotten something like salt in them from walking around where a sidewalk has been treated for ice, they might have gotten tender or sore, too.

I think there are some creams or oils you can use to treat dry, cracked pads that won't hurt the cat when they lick their feet later...you'd want to ask your vet first, obviously.

Izzy is a strictly indoors only kitten so she has very soft feet.  It never gets cold enough here to snow, but it can get hot enough to make the ground too hot to go barefoot.

Ok, good, then at least THAT'S not the problem...next differential diagnosis...!

And Barr is getting annoyed with Trump about his tweeting behavior... let's see how long he lasts trying to defend him.

Lather. Rinse. Repeat.

My guess is that Barr lasts however long the administration lasts.


I don't remember how things went down any more: wasn't Barr supposed to be a temporary replacement for Jeff Sessions? If not, who was it?

A rainy past few days, and sunny today. Looks like "winter" is probably over for us here. We had especially little of it this year, not that this region gets much of a winter anyway.

I don't wanna say cause everyone always hates me. But I'll hate all of you in the summer when it's 70 where you are, and stinking hot here...

Speaker Pelosi now says that the President's comments on Roger Stone are an "abuse of power."

Abuse of power, eh? That sounds impeachable. Let's get this train going again!

And Barr is getting annoyed with Trump about his tweeting behavior... let's see how long he lasts trying to defend him.

Lather. Rinse. Repeat.
