    Apparently frustrated by the lack of city-sponsored fireworks on the lake, neighbors set off their own sustained volley. It lasted about an hour longer than the original. I felt for the wildlife, but...

    It's not much of a castle if they had to go outside to protect it. That's not how they did it in the Middle Ages. >8)

    My neighborhood used to sound like a war zone on the Fourth until the city banned fireworks. So now there's just intermittent shelling, and not particularly close by. I don't know if we have loons,...

    AC accelerated the spread of Legionnaire's Disease, as I recall, so I have no doubt it could contribute to the spread of COVID. I'm grateful we don't need it here, and I'm not going out anyway. They...

    Yeah--I'm not too concerned any more with wiping down and such, thought I wash my hands thoroughly after bringing groceries in, and observe a lag time in dealing with some deliveries.

    I agree with most of what you've written, except we don't know how President Obama might have governed without Mitch McConnell and his vow to obstruct every last thing he attempted to do. There's...

    You make a good point. I would still criticize anyone who supported Cheney, Rumsfield at al in their all-out, bloody, and pointless assault on the Middle East.

    I respect the people behind The Lincoln Project tremendously. Unlike Democrats do so often, they don't hold back. Steve Schmidt is a particularly eloquent spokesman for them.

    I've sent money, too.

    I have an acquaintance who posts a lot of pictures of people and pets who have passed on; they're a rather gloomy sort and I don't understand how that helps anything.

    I agree. It's in the hands of younger generations.

    Yeah, Margaret Sanger believed in Eugenics. And the Republican party used to be progressive. Things change.

    You make a good point, jp1--that involving others in your trials and tribulations can increase the stress load, depending on your personality. It would for me.

    Not the Auntie Mame effect here--I've always admired Boho wear. It's more like the ego/alter ego effect. My outer self doesn't quite match my inner self. Also, it isn't really riotous colors, it's...
