11 I have a TV in my basement gym hooked up to my security system, so I'll be able to keep an eye on them when I'm working out. The other day from the alley came our local cat, then some new cat I've never seen, then a giant opossum, so i joked to someone that the skunk missed the party... well he came the next day. Tonight it's garbage night so I expect them all to make an appearance.

66 I spent an afternoon in Caltagirone. Each row of those steps are decorated with beautiful hand painted ceramic tiles. We were there during Sicilian afternoon nap time and most shops were closed. We were hungry and wanted some pizza. We followed these signs that said pizzeria down narrow streets, round corners, and down dark alleyways. But we wanted to find a pizzeria that was open. It ended up being an incredibly posh fine Italian restaurant with white table cloth and beautiful frescos painted on the high arched ceiling. We had a wonder fun meal with hand made wine.

Then we bought a large decorative ceramic plate. I schlepped that huge plate all over Italy, and jealously protected it from danger through our travels. I hand carried in on the plane. After an 18 hour flight without sleep, I absentmindedly handed it to the taxi driver at LA airport, who promptly tossed it into his trunk and broke it.

"The main landmark of the city is the 142-step monumental Staircase of Santa Maria del Monte, built from 1608 in the old part of the town. The peculiarity is that each step is decorated with different hand-decorated ceramics, using styles and figures derived from the millennial tradition of pottery making. Once a year, on and around the day of the city's patron saint, (St. James, 25 July), the staircase is illuminated with candles of different colours arranged in order to reconstruct an artistic drawing of several tens of meters."

Heh, Dallas was the most hectic city I've ever driven in. The freeway entrances and exits seem like they're about only 50 yards long -- and we had a POS rental car that didn't accelerate very well.

You have to get from 0 to around 85 in not a whole lotta time in order to avoid getting killed or killing someone when merging in heavy traffic. I was screaming each time to the wifey (born & raised in Waco) "Who the hell designed these things?!?!?"

We literally went back to the rental car company and exchanged the car (a PT Cruiser) for a zippier model ...

Posted by: N.L. Urker, my trench is full of chickens at May 12, 2022 08:23 PM (eGTCV)

110 I take the dogs to the woods every weekend. It's a little over an hour each way. I do it because my old dog grew up there and you can just see how happy it makes her. I let her go off lead now, because even I can catch her. I have steps for her to get into the car and I still have to lift her back end up in the car.

She lasts about fifteen minutes now and you can see her back legs shake. We load up and head for home. The vet says she can't manage a move and says she is just hanging on. She has trouble going over the steps to get outside now. It's what happens to old dogs. You give them as many happy days as you can. But even though they are running on empty, you still wish you had a little more time with them. It's okay to be sad about it.

116 And so it was the custom in those days that men would bring their best ladders to the great descending stairway and display them for the town's unpaired maidens to see and compare. Accompanying the first blooms of spring were these gleeming metal pillars thrusting from step to sky in bold displays of masculinity. Then one by one each ladder flaunting gallant would receive a call from a potential paramour asking him how many steps, a-frame or extension, and if it had all the proper warning signage on the top step.

I checked with security in the lobby. They had it.

The 'house' printers work on site and lay down the 'bricks' by the minute. Think of a cement crane with a 'printer' nozzle. It's almost as fast as having construction guys piece modular houses together.

287 Here's the formal paper btw:

"A BLAST search revealed that a 19 nucleotide portion of the SARS.Cov2 genome encompassing the furing cleavage site is a 100% complementary match to a codon-optimized proprietary sequence that is the reverse complement of the human mutS homolog (MSH3).
The correlation between this SARS-CoV-2 sequence and the reverse complement of a proprietary mRNA sequence is of uncertain origin. Conventional biostatistical analysis indicates that the probability of this sequence randomly being present in a 30,000-nucleotide viral genome is 3.21 ×10−11 "

That's all true and we've seen the same at grocery stores and elsewhere. But the way these tactics work is in waves. You think you've recovered. You let up so your body and mind can recover from the attack. And when the need arises again they'll hit you with it all again and you will be weaker than the last time.

There was a good video about this shown here last year. They use cyclical waves of oppression so as to take advantage of psychological conditioning techniques. I wouldn't be surprised if it all comes back in time for the elections and everyone says "No, they'll never do that again!" [Narrator: they do it again]

The Biden admin already pre-announced a big wave of "cases" conveniently timed just before the midterms.

But my other thought on it is: so, Biden seemed to have been handed a huge if inadvertant political gift. The hated plane mandate was gone, he could blame it all on the Ultra-MAGA "Trup judge" and just let the whole thing quietly die. Appealing seemed like a spectacular shot in his own foot. And given that Biden never misses a chance to crater himself in the polls, it kind of fit.

But...there's a possibility that the appeal was just for show, to appease the Karen Konstituency. The MFM has been given their marching orders to memory hole the whole issue so it can quietly die now. That would certainly explain the total blackout.

The flaw in my thinking is that there's no need to "appease" the KK. They are not going to suddenly start voting R, over mandates of all things. That would be absurd. But then again...Biden.

356 I'm not sure how that mirror trick works. Any ideas?

Spliced video at the point when he places the mirror on the bed. Look at the location of the mirror next to her, then after second girl jumps out of the bed there is a second pillow. The mirror was replaced with a whiteboard. Sleeping girl was in on the illusion.

357 There are a number of earth-sheltered homes here in Alberta. The terrain is well-suited. Find a coulee, with a steep bank that has good southern exposure. Cut into the bank, build your concrete house with a south-facing glass curtain wall, backfill.

Her past tweets about gays, lesbians and Muslims are going to be a problem in the general election.
The left machine will eat her alive and there is no way she can win in PA.
It's going to have to be David McCormick or Oz.
They should have vetted Kathy earlier because people have already voted.

Their arguments are all crap. They all rely on this convoluted series of assumptions concerning who and what I care about, what I've done with my life and for the people around me. They know jack about me, the sacrifices I've made and devoted my life to the life of others. My belief that murder is wrong and that life begins at conception requires no mental olympics.

373 Nearest plaza to me has both a Kroger and a Whole Foods. In Kroger, like in most places, there will be maybe 10% masked, tops. Go a few doors down to Whole Foods and it's 50-50. Exactly as one would expect LOL. I bet Target is up there with Whole Foods as the most-masked places in town, but I don't shop at Target so I don't know for sure.

Thanks. That jives with the general thrust of Hannity was saying and at the same time, he might as well have been part of the campaign; I was taken back somewhat. Seems the R candidates are all on the weak side or are complicated in this PA Senate race. So it comes down to who can beat Fetterman it seems.
