Looks like meth mixing to me. :D

It does Methadras!

They'd shut it down in California.

They wouldn't have the necessary permits and inspections to give the public food. This is enforced by a vast public employee sector.

As a hardware store with a free coffee and donut setup found out.

Nurseries are inspirational. If there is an ounce of optimism dwelling within you, a nursery will make it blossom.

This is the most charming free coffee set-up I have ever seen in a commercial establishment. I love the details.

I thought it was Meade's set up out back and heard Hap Arnold's words the first time he met Orde Wingate, "Damn, that man is serious".

I can imagine him saying as his one and only comes home from a hard day of conlawproffing, "Don't come back here unless you want to get your hands dirty".

PS Insta links to a nice piece from Jammie Wearing Fool about Miss Sarah's emails on finding out the youngest boy had Down's.

Andy Sullivan, you got some 'splainin' to do.

And from the linked article: How badly has this fishing expedition blown up in the faces of the left? Well, for one, the cartoon character portrayal of Palin is now gone forever.

More mixed water metaphors:

Perhaps credit is due the Pied Piper Sullivan for leading so many on the left into the river with him. His problem is that he unashamedly went down with the ship.

edutcher, I read that too. The people at Mother Jones who originally asked for the emails really look like absolute fools. Along with all the MSM.

They better hope a restaurant health inspector don't wander in.

Is that fish fertilizer I see dripping onto the cookies?

The media and the left have made the biggest of mistakes.

Governor Palin is now bulletproof.

"The people at Mother Jones who originally asked for the emails really look like absolute fools."

I disagree with this sentiment as far as it goes. These are journalists and the job of journalists is to look over the shoulder of our political elite and ensure that they are conducting their offices properly.

That is what they are doing with Sarah Palin and that is also what we are doing to Anthony Weiner.

What makes them look like fools is their stubborn refusal to hold Barack Hussein Obama to the same ethical standards.

It's the dichotomy on display here that is striking. That Democrats cannot even perceive their utter bias is stunning.

She always was bulletproof.

There's never been anything unethical for the press to try to "gotcha" her on.

They're merely getting around to proving that for us.

And we thank them for their hard work.

'Preciate it.

NYTNewYorker said...

"She always was bulletproof."

True, but with all of the slime that been poured on her for over 2 years now, each thing has had to be proved untrue for a public that only casually watches, if at all.

Every time now Palin has come out correct while the left looks craven. There are no more arrows in the lefts quiver, they are spent, while Palin has gotten stronger at every turn.
Every single Palin rock has been turned over and....NOTHING.

No other politician in this country has ever had to pass a test this stringent.

Governor Sarah Palin has.

Have to disagree. The Establishment Media has been dragged into Anthony's Weiner kicking and screaming. OTOH, they detailed the Kos Kids to go through the Palin emails in the hope something could be found that could be used to destroy her.

Opposite sides of the coin, IMHO.

Me too. Anyone that serves milk or cream in a pretty little hand-thrown pottery jug, not to mention using other lovely pottery as serving pieces, at a free coffee station at a plant nursery, is OK in my book. I like that even the warm ochre color of the vintage electric coffee urn complements the earthenware nicely. What was in the large pottery urn?

Dust Bunny Queen said...

Really nice. You would never get away with the coffee set up in California, however. The government nannies are determined to suck all the fun out of life.

I love nurseries they are so full of promise. We just planted three 6 foot tall black tartarian cherry trees to replace the stellas that were just eaten to death by aphids. I think a dose of Sevin should keep the aphids at bay. (fingers crossed) They look so nice :-)

Hope they make it, we are zone 5/6 or 7 sometimes. Have had a really mild and wet spring so far.

There is a big nursery in Sydney Australia that has a great coffee shop right in the middle of the nursery. It is just gorgeous and unique in my experience. This is the only thing I've seen that has the same idea.

Michael K said...

This could be the nursery although I can't remember the name. Great name, eh ?

Paddy O said...

Now they've entirely given up trying to find something spicy. Fortunately, it wasn't about Palin, it was about new journalism methods!

"The analysis of Sarah Palin's emails over the past few days may end up teaching us more about the future of journalism than about the former Alaska governor's past."

Apparently, the future of journalism involves what we in the academic business call "researching archives".

HT said...

Do not buy New York "sweet" onions. What a sucker I am. No, I was desperate. Didn't wanna walk to the Safeway, aka the Long Way(t).

Why do they SELL NY sweet onions. They're not sweet.

Grrr...........

And why is it easier to ship from NY state than the wonderful state of Georgia.

I ask you.

6AM signs of an upcoming party (balloons and mourning dove).

6PM sure enough it's a party observed from the strictly honored property line.

Is it me or are we dancing across the surface, below us a distant but unmistakable thunder. As if the world itself is beyond repair or redemption, when once it was all life itself.
