Make Fireworks Great Again – Mark Fiore
Thanks for the laughs, Den!
On another note…this is a good read from 2018 … definitely applies to current crisis (crises!):
Ohmigosh! Everyday….another WTF?!?!?!
OFFICIALS: Young people/students in Alabama Hold Covid Parties to See Who is Infected First — “Winner” Gets a Pot of Money
STOP THE PRESSES!!!!!
I violated my own *rule* — after I posted the above, I decided to dig deeper. The story seems so implausible even among the denialists … according to WIRED, the claims are inaccurate…that said, even WIRED (way down in their article admits it could have happened) but…
Oglala Sioux, the Lakota Sioux, and other tribes are NOT pleased with Trump’s irresponsible, disrespectful publicity stunts that could damage their sacred lands and their health.
The tribes warn that Trump’s fireworks at the event, which have been banned at the site for more than a decade, could result in wildfires and contaminate the water in the surrounding Black Hills.
The tribes have voiced serious concern that a massive gathering without any safety restrictions could cause a coronavirus outbreak in their communities.
Not only Trump, but their irresponsible GOP governor, too….who proudly announced that “we will not do any social distancing.” She happens to be female. So, I get a little weary of “progressives” blathering that women *leaders* are the answer. Well…sometimes. But, certainly not always.
Margaret Thatcher was no great example for *leadership* either. Nor Hillary Clinton, for that matter!
Wish I wouldn’t have read that one. 😦
Expected, good for the HVAC folks, plenty of work, keeping folks cool.
Hot again today, worse than yesterday. I went to check if I can run the damn pool filter, I don’t think I’m going to go out at 8:30 for my gadabout. But maybe I shouldn’t be too hasty. I should step out there at the usual time and THEN see what I should do.
The temps for the the next week are all in the 90s, I think. The temp here at the ranch only shows 86 for today.
Had Margaritas at Jill’s today, we sat outside, but it had heated up quite a bit when I left. The drinks were good.
I just checked my weather read-out in the living room, remembering it also posts the high and low here at the ranch. Got up to 89° but the Lansing State Journal said Lansing’s hi was 92°. That’s a city with buildings and neighborhoods, whereas I’m rural on an acre and a half and can’t spit to any houses around here. Ergo, a bit cooler here.
The Midwest is expected to turn up the heat this coming week, near100
Sure could use some Fireworks in this place, beers are holding out, Brandy is shot, well almost shot, TeeVee on the country channel, or could go outside and bask in the patio comfort. Been like that since Oct. getting old, out to pasture, grazin in the “grass”. Hope there is fireworks near you, supposed to be here, I have good view of the Balloons, that’s the direction here. Might be wrong but tryin. 😉
