If you engage in baby-making activity, do not be surprised if you end up making a baby.

Here is a nice article about basketmaking. When I was growing up, we had a relative who often stayed with us and sometimes he would made baskets out of a cut white oak tree.

"A revered leader in the white oak basketmaking community, Leona Trulock Waddell is a master artist whose basketmaking skills have been perfected by her years of experience and exemplify the interaction of tradition and innovation, as she both maintains the traditional form of the region’s baskets and puts her own personalized evolving imprint on each one.

Waddell was born in 1928, in Cub Run, Kentucky, a small rural community at the edge of what is now Mammoth Cave National Park, known as the epicenter of white oak basketmaking in the south central area of the state. Growing up on a farm during the Depression, she learned by an early age that basketmaking was essential to providing for the family in a subsistence-based household. By age ten Waddell began learning from her masterful mother, Ella Mae Puckett Trulock, who concluded that she, out of all her children, had a real “talent for it.”"

My only Twitter exposure is when I roam around and take the few unimpeded seconds at a time I am allowed, sometimes (usually) because I followed something from here. And my chances of owning a Tesla are about as good as my chances of winning the Tour de France.

All I know about Musk is that, like Trump, he is making the right enemies.

As Huntsville was a recent topic, I was back in town last night to see Dave Mathews Band as the inaugural act at our new 8,000 seat Orion Amphitheater. About halfway in, he mentioned the US News ranking, adding: ‘This is my first time here, but so far, so good.’ The sellout crowd went nuts. Heck of a show, too - he played for two hours and forty-five minutes!

I don't know. Am I supposed to cheer for James, that he caught unguarded people sounding racists?

UW has a new Chancellor. No post? Maybe tomorrow.

Drudge linked to an NPR article about the Census's (estimated) miscounts.
https://www.npr.org/2022/05/19/1099810793/census-undercount-by-state-arkansas-florida-illinois-mississippi-tennessee-texas
Now the Supreme Court said in 1999 that Apportionment cannot use estimated but actual counts. But what was the impact of these miscounts (assuming the estimates are the true numbers). I applied the "miscount" to the numbers used for apportionment.

Using all figures,
Minnesota would have lost a House seat (and electoral vote) to Florida,
Rhode Island would have lost a seat to Texas, and
Colorado would have lost a seat to Tennessee.
And another 3,300 Idahoans would have given that state one from California.the next seat to move would have been for California to lose a seat to Idaho.

If I only use the differences considered "Statistically Significant", only the first two changes would have happened: MN -1, RI -1, FL +1, TX+1.
And 8500 more Tennesseans would have taken a seat from NY.

So the miscounting helped Blue States at the expense of Red States.

Crossing the Chicago River on August 8, 2004, the driver of Dave Matthews Band’s bus decided to cut corners, turning the Windy City into the Shitty City.

The driver found himself crossing the river-spanning Kinzie Bridge in Chicago. Recognizing he was driving over a bridge with a grate instead of blacktop, and spying water below, he decided to take care of business.

Before you could say “Holy shit”, the DMB tour bus loosed the contents of the bus's septic tank, some 800 pounds of human piss and shit onto the bridge, sending the untreated waste sluicing through the bridge’s grated surface and plummeting toward the Chicago River below. The urban legend was that he was playing DMB's “Don’t Drink the Water” on the tour bus sound system at the time of the dumping.

The only problem was that the shit didn’t hit the water. Instead, it hit an architectural tour boat, "The Little Lady," right under the bridge. Unfortunately, that boat was filled with 100 people looking skyward, taking in the view from the bottom up.

No wonder why Biden wants to pay off student loans. https://www.bloomberg.com/news/articles/2022-05-19/biden-s-student-loan-quandary-hits-home-for-indebted-top-aides?

I love the coppery color lakes get around now at sunrise. Is it always there or is it that I see the sunrise (on my own) when temps are warmer? Dare I say it seems more reddish than blue or orange?

On Jennifer Mnookin, the new Chancellor at UW-Madison.
A Wisconsin state senator, vice-chairman of the University Committee, is asking about a report that Mnookin met with Hunter Biden in 2019 and promoted the idea of having Hunter on the UCLA faculty to talk about drug policies. Wisconsin is the top party school in the US - maybe Mnookin could get Hunter Biden to spend a term here and the students could show Hunter Wisconsin drug policies. Education is lifelong.

"UW has a new Chancellor. No post? Maybe tomorrow."

Give me a clue why you imagine that would work as a good post. In my view, it's not bloggable, and you know this blog, so to call me out for failure to blog is... whatever.

Humperdink said...

It was reported on Power Line, the (Wizard of) Oz will renounce his Turkish citizenship if elected as PA's junior senator. Some things in life mystify me. One being politically ignorant voters.

Humperdink said...

Rule #1: Never prompt our host as to what to blog. She offers a rich buffet of choices. Enjoy them or dine elsewhere.

Ann Althouse said...

The Republicans public statements about Mnookin are incredibly weak. Just embarrassing.

farmgirl said...

Lem- she sounded kinda drunk.
Was it racist- it probably was.
James could have handled it better, IMhumbleO.

Confession: we’ve had foreign priests for about 15-20 yrs now in my area. Tanzania, India, Nigeria, Philippines… it’s been difficult some days to understand them through their accents. It’s not anyones fault- that’s life and the benefits of life lessons due to culture/geography are way worth any discomfort.

Next time- she should hide her thoughts and keep her mouth shut.

And he could just do his job.

Not everything said has to be taken as a challenge.

Rusty said...

Uh,oh. Mark Elias testified at the Sussmann trial and he pretty much gave up everything. Not looking good for Sussmann, or Hillary, or the DNC.

Reportedly half of Biden’s Twitter followers are fake. I suspect the other half are real people who lack enthusiasm or are disingenuous.

wendybar said...

The left calling out the disinformation queen of the left. It's over for the lying propagandists in the media. They are all going DOWN. NOBODY trusts anything they spew anymore. WE are sick and tired of getting lied to by people getting paid millions to do so.

HOW can anybody ever trust our Intelligence Agencies again, after 51 of them LIED to the American people and have YET to apologize or take responsibility for their lies?? THEY belong in prison. THEY interfered with an election. Until there is justice...there will NEVER be peace. https://nypost.com/2022/05/18/justice-coming-for-dirty-51-hunter-biden-laptop-liars/

“Just embarrassing…”
In comparison to?

This administration is incredibly weak, embarrassing and is so out of touch w/Americans below a certain- well… choose a modifier. IQ, income- education. Location…

I heard this morning that fuel(diesel) may end up between 8-10$/gal by July. From a bull stud rep who travels VT/NY. He said he was glad to see we still had our cows- 11farms have sold theirs. All tie stalls.

Gee, wonder how we got in this position.

So JUST WHAT was The Great Divider doing here?? The more corrupt our Deep State becomes, the deeper you have to dig to find the corruption came from the top....

OK, this is getting boring. Time to start with the sunset shots!

farmgirl said...

Says you, Sir Fred.
I don’t ever get to view a sunrise where I live!!!
And how can a new day’s dawning be boring??

.@ArchCordileone tells Pelosi she is not to present herself for communion "until such time as you publically repudiate your advocacy for the legitimacy of abortion and confess and receive absolution of this grave sin in the sacrament of Penance."

It's ABOUT time!!!
