Watch the Birdie Wednesday

Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen told the Senate Homeland Security Committee that DHS needs “clear legal authority to identify, track and mitigate drones that could pose a danger to the public and to DHS operations.”

“Our enemies are exploring other technologies, too, such as drones, to put our country in danger. ISIS has used armed drones to strike targets in Syria, and we are increasingly concerned that they will try the same tactic on our soil,” she said.

A bipartisan group of senators including committee Chairman Ron Johnson and the committee’s top Democrat, Claire McCaskill, said they had introduced legislation to give DHS and the Justice Department authority to “to protect buildings and assets when there is an unacceptable security risk to public safety posed by an unmanned aircraft.”

Government and private-sector officials are concerned that dangerous or even hostile drones could get too close to places like military bases, airports and sports stadiums.

    Jill came over mid afternoon and she caught up on e Walking Dead episodes. When she left, I did the mowing. It was a glorious, sunny day.

    I spotted where I got the poison ivy, Jill confirmed it was P.Ivy. I got the shovel and uprooted it and walked it thru the secret room and tossed it out in the cornfield.

    When mowing and going along the pool deck I spotted another poison ivy, 3 times the side. I thought I had one coming up under the deck but wasn’t sure, THIS spring I’m sure. I got the P.Ivy spray and squirted it as much as I could. Wish I could have dug it out but it was in an awkward spot to get any leverage with the shovel to heave it out of the ground. I always pull, or dig it up and once in awhile I have to spray.
