“What do people do for 30 min or an hour while plugged in?”

Actually Jim, that’s been thought of. Nav systems in e-cars have features that include routing based on locations of charging stations, and inclusion of points of interest in the vicinity of charging stations.

Well I got my blood work results back and had Jr. evaluate.

GJ, I'm gonna try the French drain thing. I think it'll work based on what I've read do far. I think it could turn into a great dad-son project with my 15 y.o.

Monroe county says topography and gravity over rule all on certain grades so it's in my hands.

Bought my oldest a car last year as she graduated from college. She snuck home from Chicago last night to surprise her momma for mother's day.

Needless to say it needs an oil change, a check engine light cleared and a wash. I'm at the Kia dealership getting all that done. They are falling over themselves to get me coffee, snacks, etc.

Only way to improve their customer service would be to have girls working. Free coffee is just free coffee without a smile.

Giuliani: ‘I’m Not Going’ to Ukraine

“I’m not going to go. Because I think I’m walking into a group of people that are enemies of the president, in some cases, enemies of the United States, and in one case, an already convicted person, who has been found to be involved in assisting the Democrats with the 2016 election.”

Giuliani further stated, “I believe I was walking into a bunch of people, one of whom already has been found to be involved in this, that I wasn’t aware of, and I think this was a setup.”

WTF? This after all the shrieking from the left?

Good Morning! Speaking of Beto,my morning perusal always includes the NH Union Leader.
Beto spoke at a house party in Salem and Gillibrand held an event at a cafe in Derry. NH is all about retail politics,but at some point,speaking to 30 or 40 people is a waste of everyone's time and money. I guess Beto has plenty of his wife's money to waste. Andrew Yang talked to the editorial board of the Seacoast Media Co. (Portsmouth) Does he even show up in polls?

Sounds like a project for sure. Great father/son time.

I’ve never had a problem with Kia/Hyundai. I’ve owned 3. I even got a notice in the mail this week that they are extending warranties for the struts on my daughter’s 2016 Elantra to 120,000 miles or 7 years. I believe those numbers are right. It’s still relatively early and I’ve only had 40 oz of coffee. :)

Whoa! They believed they could “commodify people’s feelings.” Hence the need to defend against words, words, words, as Dorothy Sayers advised in 1948.

And the need to check one’s thinking product through the Liberal Arts Trivium and regular re-validation of one’s principles.

Fire ant update (because I know you are all on the edge of your seats). Took benedryl and advil last night and slept for 12 hours. Swelling is down but still there. Put alcohol on the ones popping.

Took kiwi back to the park this AM carefully avoiding where I think the ants were in tall shoes and voila, ants bit my other foot!

This park is generally well taken care of, so I am really pissed off! If the swelling doesn't go down today my medical friends say we should go to a walk-in. But I'm hopeful.

And Steph I will buy that stuff - altho they aren't at my house. I think I will have to start wearing rubber boots.

I'm guessing Ahab must be lashed to her starboard side since he isn't visible a-port.

I'm not trying to make fun of overweight people. Well, ok, maybe some, but I know it's a struggle. But to pretend it's healthy or should be normalized and celebrated is even more harmful and dangerous than the obsession with those gruesome, emaciated, breastless, hipless, stick-girl models. That's what I'm ridiculing; the perverse idea everything "diverse" should be celebrated.

You can ALWAYS gauge the destructive impact to the Democrats of a news story based on the hack media’s reaction to it. The media panic over the Joe Biden Ukrainian collusion story is directly proportional to the damage it’s going to do to him when the truth comes out. Bank on it.

Any doubts still that Rosenstein protected Trump by appointing Mueller to get McCabe out of the picture? Likely one of the biggest reasons Trump knew he could trust Rosenstein (who btw is a civilian now and free to testify against McCabe and everyone else involved with the silent coup).

I know you have to be aware of all the accusations about McCabe leading a “silent coup” against Trump. We’ve only been talking about it here for months. Who do you think was the first person to figure out that the Obama criminal cabal was involved in a silent coup against Trump?

There was a reason RR got an unprecedented retirement ceremony never given to previous DAGs at the DOJ this week.

Beasts of England

One of the reasons I was so impressed by the young lady covering 'Radar Love' is because it's such a difficult drum track. Typically on rock songs, the cymbal is crashed on the downbeat. On that song, it's done on the beat before the downbeat, with an unclutched high-hat splashed on the downbeat. Major props. 👊🏼

I had a (beautiful) Hungarian girlfriend who's cousin Otto claimed to be the bass player on Radar Love. He taught me how to play the Stones' Wild Horses on guitar, and I believed the Radar Love story my entire life until I looked up the band around a year ago during a conversation here and found that a) the bass player wasn't Hungarian, and b) his name wasn't Otto.

Neil Chernoff (FB):he Australian diplomat at the center of the Papadopolous mess is covering himself, although that is not the way the mainstream media is covering what he said. Here is the cover:
"While Downer was critical of Papadopoulos, he said that there was no indication from his May 2016 conversation that the Trump campaign had colluded with Russia to steal or release any Clinton information.
“There was no suggestion from Papadopoulos nor in the record of the meeting that we sent back to Canberra, there was no suggestion that there was collusion between Donald Trump or Donald Trump’s campaign and the Russians,” Downer said."
In other words, I was not suggesting collusion. So why did the FBI jump all over it? Is there anything there that would justify the US government spying (sorry "conducting surveillance on") a US citizen who is part of an opposition Presidential campaign?

Trump Campaign Staffer Attacked for Calling 9/11 Terror Supporters ‘Murderous Thugs’

The Talking Points Memo (TPM) article published Friday accuses Matt Wolking, a deputy director of communications for Rapid Response for the Trump campaign, of writing anti-Muslim comments on his personal blog in college.

The blog, “Wolking’s World,” featured mostly scraps of news followed by commentary and analysis, commonly found on blogs before the Twitter era.

TPM accuses Wolking of describing Muslims as “murderous thugs,” which stems from a post he wrote arguing that a poll showing that seven percent of Muslims supported the 9/11 attacks was alarming and not defensible.

Commenting on an article on the results of a Gallup poll of Muslims, Wolking criticized the tone and wrote, “They still can’t get around the fact that over 90 million Muslims are murderous thugs, a conservative estimate considering all of those who would rather not go on record as supporting terrorism, especially to a Western polling company.”

TPM also accused Wolking of describing Islam as a religion whose followers celebrated 9/11 by dancing in the streets, a fact that was documented by the media at the time.

The Friday night oppo dump prompted ridicule in Republican circles in Washington, and a source close to the campaign revealed to Breitbart News that both the Washington Post and The Daily Beast passed on the story before TPM published it.

Beto O'Rourke reveals plan to transfer wealth from rich, white Americans to poorer African-Americans

"One very obvious opportunity — but it will be insufficient. When we look at the fact that there's 10 times the wealth today in white America than there is in black America, and that families have been able to successfully pass on that wealth over time," O'Rourke said, according to The Examiner.

"We know from our history of redlining and excluding African Americans from the ability to build wealth through home purchases, that opportunity does not exist for much of the country," O'Rourke continued.

"What if in the tax code we did a better job of breaking down that accumulated wealth, of taxing it so it is not producing the greatest income and wealth inequality that we've seen in our lifetimes, unseen since the Gilded Age of the 19th century? What if we decided that we would use the proceeds to invest in people, in education?" the former Texas congressmen went on to say.

O'Rourke was also asked why he, as a white man, is qualified to lead "racial healing."

"I can choose to do this as a white man, to involve myself in this conversation. I can just as easily choose to back out of it," O'Rourke said.
