The Acid-washed Witch Hunt Hoax Apple – Mark Fiore
Jeez…2020, in a saner political environment, should be a cakewalk for the Dems…yet they pick fights about race among themselves…
Culling the herd of 791?
Went grocery shopping today and washed dishes. That’s all I’ve done today.
Jill and I are driving to Ohio tomorrow to see my brother and sister-in-law, to return Uncle Steve’s suit pants which he left at Jill’s AND to take him the six pack of “Angry Mayor” beer that I forgot to give him when they left the wedding.
I should have mowed to day, but meh. Maybe when we get home from Ohio tomorrow. Can’t Sunday, driving Up North with Pete’s family to my nephew’s memorial. After THAT, I’m free running around, except for the allergist and dental appointments I have soon.
Allergist sent me a bunch of papers to fill out. The page asking what your allergy symptoms are, 3 columns, I had to use “other” to mention my angioedema, lol.
One question was about the history of allergies in my family. None that I know of, but my Jill has allergies. She must have got them from her dad’s side, lol.
Assorted butterflies. A catered event @ the Cultural Center. Pigeons on the Coffeehouse Apts. roof. A brace of crows picking up edibles at the gas station. Just 44 minutes in the 32 °C heat to the Birch & Barley for an alligator dinner.

Who is eating, the alligator or you? CRUNCH!
Day 6: 369+94=463 minutes.
I ate a little bit of alligator but I now do not recommend it.
See ya later, alligator!
The last person that tried to eat an alligator before it was dead:
I just watched this movie on my laptop (no TV in this house) — I highly recommend it. Ordinary people in Wales, living their dreams…two thumbs up, in my book! True story.
The Dream Alliance fairytale
Few racing stories have more accurately embodied the phrase ‘rags to riches’ than Welsh National winner Dream Alliance, who was reared on a slag-heap allotment in the poor mining village of Cefn Fforest.
Jan Vokes had no experience of racing before breeding Dream Alliance but formed a 23-strong syndicate at the local working men’s club, where she worked as a barmaid, with each member paying £10 a week.
Born in 2001, Dream Alliance spent the first 12 months on Vokes’s allotment before moving to Hobbs’s yard aged three. He proved a hit on the track, winning three races in 2006 and finishing second behind Denman in the 2007 Hennessy.
The following year Dream Alliance ran in a hurdle race at the Grand National festival and suffered what could have been a fatal injury when a rear hoof cut through the back of a front leg and sliced a tendon.
The syndicate voted unanimously to spend £20,000 on stem-cell surgery to help the leg recover, although a return to racing was extremely unlikely regardless.
Remarkably, Dream Alliance made it back to the track and achieved his crowning glory on December 28, 2009, when he stormed to victory at odds of 20-1 in the Welsh National at Chepstow, on just his second run back from injury.
Part-owner Maldwyn Thomas summed it up best: “He was bred in Cefn Fforest and born on the top of a flattened coal tip in an old mining colliery. He came into the world overlooking the valleys and spent his first 12 months in a tin shed. Now he’s won the Welsh National!”
Name of the movie is DARK HORSE:
Wow that does look like a good flick, I need to see it.
DEN…you’ll find the people charmingly infectious with their optimism, can-do spirit…their village ALL thrived during Dream Alliance’s reign!
Pro- and anti-border wall will have a field day with this from SCOTUS…
