fireworks or gunshots

My daughter posted this to my FB page with the note “Mom – put the coffee down before clicking on this link and remember I love you!”

According to this video Sarah Palin is claiming that the drought in California is a direct result of California politics/politicians… because everyone knows California is SURROUNDED by water – and all they have to do is build more desalination plants and reservoirs and botta bing problem solved!

So if this is a hoax it’s a damn good one – and if it’s real well… there’s really nothing more to say now is there!

Sorry I can’t type anymore… I need to find a pair of wooly socks to stuff in my ears and make the sound of her stupidity go away…

When my son was little and he watched Sesame Street with his older sisters, they would point to the screen and ask “Who’s that?” and my son would say “Big Bird” or “Cookie monster” or “Ernie-Bert”. And as many times as they each tried to get him to separate the names, he held fast – they were Ernie-Bert! One persona – one entity – one soul.

And now today they truly are :)

And the observation from Mother Jones that quietly inspires so much hope for our humanity:


… not just a few countries… THE REST OF THE ENTIRE WORLD thinks US gun control laws are beyond stupid.

Jeff puts it into perspective with humour. But really it’s not funny.

I may have published this before… old age is definitely setting in… but I don’t care… it’s worth watching again :)
