I was going to say, "You've got green grass already?", until I went to Flickr to see the date.

Down here, the crocusueseses are sticking their heads up.

Who's this guy? He doesn't look like a Lab (and definitely not the one you usually feature).

Just curious.

What I love about the steady, persistent and incrementally ramped up Meadhouse Amazon pitch and scorecard is: that which it is acknowledging. I get it. They are embracing the present as a means to the future, and in that way are doing the necessary work.

Hey, what are you doing with my dog? Send her home, but feed her first.

Meadehouse: what happened to all the food photos from cafes and restaurants around Madtown?

Do you not get around much in the winter, other than parks?

Looking for a pleasant cafe for my visit on Friday.

Since the professor says that 'Cafe' posts are open threads...

I've been watching The Walking Dead and it's pretty good.

It seems to have constantly fight its' desire to go off the tracks though.

Now it's ghost voices!

As I've told people: 'It's a soap opera with swearing gore and zombies.'

Long day. Tired lab.

From McClatchy -

A 2009 study by George Borjas of Harvard University, Jeffrey Grogger of the University of Chicago and George Hanson of the University of California, San Diego, looked at 1960-2000 Census data and found that as immigrants disproportionately increased the supply of workers in a particular area, wages of African-American workers in that area fell, the employment rate declined and the incarceration rate rose.
“Our analysis suggests that a 10 percent immigration-induced increase in the supply of a particular skill group reduced the black wage by 2.5 percent, lowered the employment rate of black men by 5.9 percentage points, and increased the incarceration rate of blacks by 1.3 percentage points,” the professors wrote in the study.


In short, the Obama Amnesty is screwing the blacks but good..not just blue collar whites.
But the blacks are by and large too stupid and too loyal to Obama to realize their and fellow non-Elite, non-Ivy blacks economic futures are being sold out.

Once that is set up, the other shoe that will drop on blacks is when a Bankrupt Chicago, California, New York, and Fed Government can no longer hand out all the "free stuff" blacks have been led to believe they are entitled to.

Chaos, then a 2nd Civil War may come, and blacks may well end up on the side of the white Republicans again.
Back in the 1st Civil War, it was well known that Hispanic nations generally sided with the white Democrats of the Confederacy against the Union.
And what Jews there were in America were not keen on the War except as a money-making opportunity...but thought the whole thing was bad for banking and business.
US Grant wrote for permission to hang a large group of Jews following Union Armies to sell them contraband - that he viewed as bad for the war effort.

Wyo Sis, if you're here, bless your heart. I went back two pages to see if anything came of that earlier post and saw the comments you left there about your card. I'm deeply impressed. I understand you 1) opened a photo-hosting account 2) learned how to grab an address 3) make a link to a photograph you took yourself. 4) Made an AWESOME card. I'm telling you your card will be treasured forever. It will be shown off and bragged about. And those other things will be useful too.

Do one with butterflies.

Did any of you read this? It is long. I just finished reading it and it makes me sad all around for the world we live in, wars, incompetent leaders, ruthless criminals, soldiers/warriors...

Did the most Gunderson Marge earn her sleep in Fargo when, the most pro-life character ever, and not only that but in many ways, was violently unable to sleep?

kentuckyliz said...

Doug's life doesn't mean failure to me. It means free kibble, a warm house, belly rubs, walkers, no mortgage, no pressure.

NotquiteunBuckley said...

I once upon hearing of a man talking with passionate decency of "mumbo jumbo" listened. I thank the University.

NotquiteunBuckley said...

I kept wanting to say ... ... " it's like Malarkey" or "bullshitting " or have nots want such.

No sleep while there is grading to do.

NotquiteunBuckley said...

Have I, as in we descended, were make it we shall be among enough to the point of relevancy, or otherwise.

Then.

But then.

But then again.

And there ya have it.

Never felt so lonely.
Can't help but wonder.
Why

Gram "the man" Parsons had to go.

When I saw the origami thing I decided I'd have to try to figure out how to do that card. I love origami and all kinds of paper craft, but I am limited by a lack of engineering skills. I have to rely on what other people have done.
Thanks for the return comment. My husband and mother are going to get cards.
I like the butterfly idea. I have a nephew in Australia and I might even make and send him one if it doesn't cost a fortune. His will be poisonous and venomous animals of Australia.
I love your sites.

"But the Shooter will discover soon enough that when he leaves after sixteen years in the Navy, his body filled with scar tissue, arthritis, tendonitis, eye damage, and blown disks, here is what he gets from his employer and a grateful nation: "

" Nothing. No pension, no health care, and no protection for himself or his family."

"Veterans advocates have worried for years about suicides among those who served in or during the Iraq and Afghanistan Wars. "The community is so ravaged by suicides right now," says Paul Rieckhoff, chief executive of the 250,000-member Iraq and Afghanistan Veterans of America, "I mean, I know guys who have had 10 (veterans who served) in their battalion who have committed suicide."

http://www.usatoday.com/story/news/nation/2013/02/11/veterans-suicides/1903269/


And yet 80 percent of the questions senators asked the future Sec. of Defense concerned ISRAEL!
If that does not make you want to weep for our country, then something is very wrong.

Well, you are absolutely right. I have often wondered myself--don't members of congress know that ordinary Americans in places like Ohio and Kentucky, who have lost their jobs and can't find another, watch these hearings and go "what???"


Joe Schmoe said...

Obama admin officials talking about the economy remind me of Monty Python's Black Night. A quarterly GDP decline? Had worse. Four-dollar-a-gallon gas? Tis but a scratch. U-6 unemployment of 14.4%? It's just a flesh wound.

kentuckyliz said...

Winning application of Python. Well done, sir.

I particularly admired him for the sensible way he thought about race. At one time, the Detroit Symphony Orchestra was caught up in race fever, as the country at large has long been. They hired a musician on account of his race. They did this under political pressure. For years, the tradition had been blind auditions: It didn’t matter how you looked, all that mattered was how you played. But the DSO scuttled this, in order to hire by race.

Around this time, they approached DePreist about becoming their music director. It was clear to him that they were especially interested in his race. He would have nothing to do with the orchestra. “It is impossible for me to go to Detroit, because of the atmosphere,” he said. “People mean well, but you fight for years to make race irrelevant, and now they are making race an issue.”

That damn dog needs his rest after he:

1. took a dump in MY yard - I found it with my shoe
2. dug a hole in MY flower bed
3. barked at ME, the benign neighbor

Jesus, Reddit has a webpage now of defensive shootings, most from video of TV stations in 2013.

Just because a dog is sleeping does not mean the dog is tired. It may simply mean the dog can find nothing better to do. No one will play with him, there is nothing on TV, and all the good books are checked out.

there is a Tired Pup Glacier and Tired Pup River in the Lime Hills area in western Alaska. I never got a chance to go out there when I lived in Alaska, it is a pricey charter flight to get in there.

Nichevo said...

Bag, that looks just like my friend's dog, who is a (superexcellent) rescue mutt. Can you explain this dog, what breed/s he is and so forth?

And give him smushes, please.
