That's a funny mistake with the video, especially because it goes with my post so well:

Reality? They Didn't Need No Stinking Reality!

Rainbows? A green shirt? Meade is a leprechaun!

The sprinkler does not care, it sprinkles on all in its path without bias.

... this is reality.

and this is what passes for reality.

Never dismiss a rainbow with, "This is reality", in front of an Irishman.

The Blonde and I had the grand fortune to see a double rainbow once. Can't remember whether it was Puerto Vallarta or Jamaica, mon, but it was lovely.

The statement "it's just reality" follows something else that is not in the edit.

I'll light the fire
You put the flowers in the vase
That you bought today

Staring at the fire
For hours and hours
While I listen to you
Play your love songs
All night long for me
Only for me

Come to me now
And rest your head for just five minutes
Everything is good
Such a cosy room
The windows are illuminated
By the sunshine through them
Fiery gems for you
Only for you

Our house is a very, very fine house
With two cats in the yard
Life used to be so hard
Now everything is easy
'Cause of you

Check out Blackfive.

Hallmark mocks Memorial Day.

They're off my list. Meantime, I'll be suppressing the urge to destroy their mercandise whenever and wherever I come across it.

...this is reality.

So is this jaw dropper via Ace.

The Scottish city of Dundee also joined the West Dunbartonshire by distributing "posters...calling on some 150,000 residents to refrain from buying Israeli goods." Israeli products will also have a special mark placed on them to make them more identifiable. No other country's books are being boycotted.

It is expected that "ten more Scottish councils may join the boycott."

Thanks for sharing that experience of the good earth complete with God's sign that marks the first covenant He made with men. Beautiful in every way.

Way back when I was sitting around talking with a group of friends, and we were bouncing around what we might want to be if we weren't who we were.

Oddly, I said, "Movie director".

Makes me laugh as I type it.

I heard Trump today on Hannity. For all the grief I've thought about Hannity I was impressed but befuddled.

Trump ripped Paul Ryan as a powermad (maybe) political neophyte who literally damaged the GOP brand to the point a third party is the best option. Ryan's plan isn't anti-Christic Trump told Hannity, but the timing of it is. We should all have forced Obams to come up with a plan, then attack it and win more elections and yada yada yada.



Palin was also given (it seemed to me) lavish praise by Trump.

My conlusion is Trump sees Palin as a successful and popular force not running for office this year and hence no threat, unlike Ryan.

Trump can gain viewers by aligning with Palin because her fans (myself included) respect those who treat her well, while at the same time the people Trump might alienate rationalize Trump's support of Palin away as "cunning" or "strategic" planning and something to monitor, not boycott.

As "Movie Director" I'd have to tell Althouse that she isn't very good at improvisational small talk caught on film, even though she SHINES on the internet, VERY silent video and in her photography.

Penny said...

Wonder what she's like on a road trip?

Oh, never mind. ha ha Never said I wanted to be a trucker.

Well, not since 1969, anyway.

No unicorns? Confetti?

The lack of diversity is disappointing.

I recall Jews having special marks placed on them to make them more identifiable.

Never again?

"Wonder what she's like on a road trip?"

Never boring.

I am truly disappointed. I expected to see a unicorn along with the rainbow.
