21 CBD - thank you for this work of art. My first glance at it reminded me of all the times at my grandparent's place (we nicknamed it the ponderosa). He had a pond where we, including my aunts/uncles/cousins, would gather on Sundays to skate. Much simpler and enjoyable times back then. Actually brought a tear to my eye while reminiscing about it. Thank you.

56 This spring and summer have been awful, now this painting gives us a preview of the winter of our discontent. Winter is a tough season during the very best of times.

The Mid-Morning Art Thread is a great feature by the way, my comment on the season of winter not withstanding. Once upon a time when I was young I majored in Art History, which is really just a history major seen through the lens of created objects. You can learn a lot about a culture by examining its art.

Sneak up and kick him in the ice hole

Posted by: rhennigantx at August 17, 2020 09:44 AM (JFO2v)

65 I rather like this painting. The frozen, somewhat bleak, landscape with the dark figures is effective. I'm not sure what the youngsters are doing but ice fishing comes to mind. Claus did some Impressionistic works and this one sort of qualifies. No idea what size the canvas is but it seems to me that it should be a smaller one. The scene doesn't need huge areas.

The indistinct figures of the children makes me think he isn't painting specific people but is showing a common scene, a ritual, of children on the ice.

If you should go skating
On the thin ice of modern life
Dragging behind you the silent reproach
Of a million tear-stained eyes
Don't be surprised when a crack in the ice
Appears under your feet
You slip out of your depth and out of your mind
With your fear flowing out behind you
As you claw the thin ice

Posted by: BackwardsBoy - Mask Rebel at August 17, 2020 09:52 AM (HaL55)

92 Last sheriff in Ottawa County Ohio had to make a rule. You could get rescued off the ice or out of the lake once a day. If you turned around and went right back out and needed to get rescued a second time in one day, you was in a heap o' trouble. Fishermen challenged the rule. They just couldn't see how that was fair.

173 Millie's "husband" is apparently a spiritual marriage, not a legal one. And he is the father of their child. (according to Tore) The FRiday arrest gave media time to trash Millie as a violent criminal, while they have no facts ... smashed her Mom's phone after mom was recording her personal/business things ... it kinda seems like Mom was the one "stealing", but a prosecutor will love to do favors for powerful DeepState minions, is my guess.

177 In Rick Atkinson's "An Army at Dawn" - a great book about the North African theater in WW2 - about halfway through reading it, you got the impression that we were a bunch of bumbling fools, playing war with a foe that was better prepared, better trained, better motivated and generally better than we American's were. In fact our allies would routinely call our GI's "UnServiceable" as a tongue-in-cheek homage to our national acronym.

However, After we had our nose bloodied several times, and especially after Kasserine, Mr. Atkinson used a line that - when I read it - sent chills down my spine. He had given a fairly frank assessment of our lukewarm performance of the war - but then he started bringing up the fact that our resources that were coming into the theater were unsurmountable. For every tank or truck destroyed in battle, we were shipping 3 or 4 more into the field every day. Our industrial might started flexing. That wasn't the line that made me quiver - it was that "The Americans had begun to Hate."

At that point, the tide of the theater was irrevokably turned. Our GI's fought no longer just because they were told to, but because they HATED our enemy. They hated that they had to be there, that they had to take up arms and be away from their families - perhaps never to return.

I am beginning to Hate. It's not a feeling that I welcome and every ounce of reason is fighting it - but I cannot restrain it for long. When I heard about the man in Portland who was beaten for trying to defend a fellow citizen from a mob - I begin to hate. When I hear about law enforcement officers being shot, having bricks thrown at their heads and fireworks being used against them, I begin to hate.

Thankfully my immediate area doesn't seem to be impacted by this - but if it does - my hate will manifest itself I'm afraid.

The swampy lake region downstream of the 3 Gorges Dam was turned into farmland (rice fields). They have had the gates on at the damn at full tilt boogie for weeks, and flooded out a lot of farmland. There will be food shortages coming up in China.
China had been able to feed itself for years. You don't see hunger on the streets of Chinese cities like you do in India.
Now, not so sure. Perhaps they have lost the Mandate of Heaven. They will need to buy a lot of grain and soy beans from Australia, Argentina and the US and Canada.

So when they charged Millie with obstruction of justice and/or evidence tampering, they had an "investigation" already under way.

She had already buried her husband and had just asked for help in getting VA coverage. He husband won the MOH at Anzio. I was able to see his medal and read the citation.

I read where in Chinese Restaurants usually a family orders family style. Several dishes are served at a table, some of the dishes aren't finished and there is quite a bit of waste. I believe that is probably true.

Yeah, they've started a "Clean Your Plate" campaign to reduce restaurant waste. Restaurants are being told to reduce portion size, among other things.

That depends on the state. In a common law state a common-law marriage is every bit as legal as one that is recorded. All it takes to be married in Texas is for two people to hold themselves out as husband and wife (or husband and husband, or wife and wife, I guess).
Posted by: Caesar North of the Rubicon at August 17, 2020 11:09 AM (jK8Z7)


I believe, without any more evidence than is already known publicly, they got married in a church of their choice, and told the state to go f**k themselves when it came to getting a marriage license.

I don't know how much of that is going on these days, probably more than most of us realize.

Why ask the state to bless your marriage, when they're obviously willing to use the power of the state to put YOUR marriage on equal footing with abominable couplings otherwise.

297 My marriage in Texas was common-law for the first ten years. Then they passed a law allowing you to register a common-law marriage with the state.

300 I always liked the idea of Common Law Marriage from a philosophical point of view, and note that it is a very very old idea, arguably the oldest form of marriage of all. The concept holds that a man and woman can decide they are married, and they don't need a Church to say grace over it, and they don't need the State to give them it's permission; they have the innate power to make this agreement on their own.

of course this has problems, and Church and State get brought in to enforce things, which is their primary purpose.

I always thought the purpose of common law marriage was to protect the woman. Texas has no alimony, but community property, so if a man (particularly in the more frontier days) shacks up with a woman and calls her his wife, and she is his wife in everything but ceremony, then dumps her, she had nothing, but if she could prove they held themselves out as being married, she owned half of the cattle and half of the ranch.

314 I would like to let all know that the size of your Penis really matters in your relationship or marriage. I got married to my wife about 1 month after we met in a photo studio, we lived happily for the first 3 months of our marriage until my wife and I started having quarrels at home because I couldn't satisfy her in bed with my little penis. Actually my penis was very small, it measured about 4.5 inch long on erection and I am 51 years old. My wife said it was forbidden by the women of this world. My wife started sleeping with other men outside. Sometimes i will return from work without finding my wife at home and whenever i call or ask her where she was, she will always snub at me and sometimes just tell me to go get a larger dick. All this continued for a long time and it hurt me so much that I was at the edge of breaking up on the marriage till when I read about a doctor called DR.Moses Buba. online. I never thought i could smile and be in a happy marriage again if not for the help of DR.Moses Buba. I got the doctors Emailsbuba.herbalmiraclemedicine@gmail.com ) on the internet and i emailed him, and he got back to me with some encouraging words, he got me some herbs cream which i use for just 8 days and i began to feel the enlargement of my penis, and without surgery. This went on for a little period of about 10 days and to my surprise my wife keeps screaming that she loves my big dick now. Now my wife no longer cheats on me, and my penis is now about 10.5 inches long on erection and off course very large round. And now my wife uses breasts, hips and bums enlargement. I and my wife are very happy for the help rendered to me by DR.Moses Buba, and I want to say a big thanks to the Doctor for the help. You can contact the Doctor now on his Email buba.herbalmiraclemedicine@gmail.com ) OR WHATSAPP +2349060529305, you can even contact me to know my result or see it with your eye on whats-app or you can call me +886981036185 or
