Morel-like. They are rather architectural.

Good news!

Surreal beauty. It's very Avatar-ish, which was never as wonderful as the real planet we stick to. We are living on a fantasy planet now.

Saudi Arabia gives Israel clear skies to attack Iranian nuclear sites

http://www.timesonline.co.uk/tol/news/world/middle_east/article7148555.ece

/key:

"Passing over Iraq would require at least tacit agreement to the raid from Washington. So far, the Obama Administration has refused to give its approval as it pursues a diplomatic solution to curbing Iran’s nuclear ambitions. Military analysts say Israel has held back only because of this failure to secure consensus from America and Arab states."


Obama pursues a diplomatic solution. Harsh words and feeble sanctions, diluted by corrupt eurocrats and tyrants hostile to the West.

Israel will be lost because Obama took National Security as pass/fail.

Obama Orders Dance Classes, Movie Nights, and Bingo for Illegal Detainees

Presumably, the hot box lunches and complimentary blow jobs will be authorized in a future ICE order.

I see the little blue pill even gives wood better wood.

WV "fawbalo" When even Boston thinks it's cold.

hmmm 10 comments, 4 of value, 1 unfathomable, 4 really stupid and out of place and 1 silly.

Looks like the gangs all here.

Hmmm...I am definitely seeing a "carrots & onion rings" type of vibe here. Only problem with that is I think only female trees produce pine cones.

Here is a
story about someone doing the right thing and getting in trouble over it. Why did this happen? Because there are too many lawyers involved.

AllenS said...

Mr. House, don't you understand what The Althouse Woman is trying to do when she puts up a cafÉ post? Obviously not.

AllenS said...

Perk up and pay attention, Mr. House.

He thinks being President of the U.S. is akin to being Faculty Chair.

These flora appear to be growing at a much higher elevation than Madison, WI. Therefore Dr Watson the Dynamic Duo may be hiking in Canada. One hopes that rescue teams will not be needed.

HDHouse said...

duhhh AllenS...

Yeah...after 4-5 years on this blog I kinda "get the cafe idea"...

I do hold with my original note that of the first 10, 4 seemed to be out of place even for an open forum.

Wish you could get that as well...and as it is a cafe forum, I guess anything goes Allen.

Pogo said...

I for one am both grateful and enchanted when hdhouse does his magic as our resident hall monitor. Without his thankless labor, this blog would have gone to the dogs long ago. Hats off!

View it quick. Warner has pulled it and there are remnants here and there on the net.

If you get the "taken down message" look at the bottom and click on the girl and guy in front of a microphone.

That picture looks upside down. Or maybe it is just that I haven't had my coffee yet.

Looking forward to it too: Roasted the beans this morning.

AllenS said...

In other words, it's ok for you to post about whatever you want, but there should be restrictions on other people whom you deem stupid, out of place and silly? Café for me, not for you!

Rialby said...

House, don't you have some fellow snobs to complain to or about at the local coffee shop in your tony Hamptons village this morning?

Fred4Pres said...

The Sailor Moon reference was in response to this story.

AllenS said...

I said: "Café for me, not for you!"

Originally, I was going to say:
"Café for me, not for thee!"

Then I had a yabetcha moment.

My Nelly Moser Clematis finally gave it up after a spring transplant. Tie Dye too.

"Spring? It's June. When is summer in Wisconsin? :-)"

The first day of summer in the northern hemisphere in 2010 is June 21. Sorry if you've been sweltering for weeks already.

And the picture was taken on June 9th.

AllenS said...

And it should be noted that the day after the first day of summer, the daylight hours start to get shorter. That just doesn't seem right, does it?

edutcher said...

Allen, HD is hallucinating again. He was referring to his own comments of the last day or two and projected them onto everybody else.

PS Like most Lefties, he also has no sense of humor.

AllenS said...

I don't think that there are a lot of daylight hours in the house of House.

GMay said...

From kent's American Thinker link:

"...make life easier, more comfortable, and pleasant for the hundreds of thousands of illegal immigrants..."

"...make the immigration detention system less penal..."

Every day there's something just surreal that this administration does. I can only hope that numbness doesn't set in.

edutcher said...

No chance.

Consider that the Admiral in charge of the spill says (or was ordered to say) he didn't know there were miles of containment boom lying in warehouses or that our esteemed POTUS used as his justification of a drilling moratorium a report that does not recommend one and the the 7 experts who contributed to it disavow.

AllenS said...

yes of course Allen. and thank you Pogo...I'll never grow tired of catching the right wing in yet another flap....

JAL said...

Considering that POTUS and BP both declined the offer from the Netherlands of lots of boom, ships, the whole kahuna 3 days after the blowout .......

Considering POTUS is considering removing the deduction for mortgage interest on fed taxes ....

Considering Congress has just decided to spend millions of useless dollars on things like requiring VA centers to provide chiropractic care .... at a time when the US government is in debt and drowning ....

Come November. Quickly.

Come 2012 before the USA is killed by deliberate irresponsible ineptitude.

Deliver us. Please.

Wow - those are,...beautiful.

The calendar talks, the humidity doesn't listen.
