Happy Tramp gets his first kiss from his Lady.

Dogs reacting sweetly to being kissed.

Magic trick involving disappearing and reappearing fingers. Caution, even when you can figure out what's going on, it's still distressing to watch.

Bored panda.

Catlike reflexes.

Fathers Day with the silverbacks.

Panda Fathers Day.

"This is the best day of my life!"

This dog's not having it.

Kitten's hunting instincts are coming online, but its "kill" programming is in bad shape.

Triple alliance.

Weeks ahead of President Biden's much anticipated and controversial trip to Saudi Arabia, where he'll meet with crown prince Mohammed bin Salman, the kingdom is cracking down on any items, including toys, with a rainbow on them.

The commerce ministry put clothing and toy stores on notice over "rainbow colors" in the capital of Riyadh - saying such items will now be banned as they "contradict the Islamic faith and public morals and promote homosexual colors targeting the younger generation."

Ah well, you should always clip those off before they bloom.

According to the experts, when they bloom that changes the plant and the leaves no longer taste good and get tough. IIRC the plant starts to die at that point as well.

One of the most popular is our Ospreys. The town puts up a couple dozen platforms for nests all around town including one down in the salt marsh that has a dedicated web cam. The pair that occupies that nest just had a couple babies. Cute little buggers.

As far as anyone knows, all the birds died -- except for the peach-faced lovebirds, which came from a Namibian climate not too different from the Sonoran desert. They've been breeding here ever since. They make holes in the Saguaros, and nest in them. We've been lucky enough to see them a few times. One visited our back yard, once, but has not returned, despite the variety of goodies we put out.

Ospreys will try to return to the same breeding nest each year if they can.

If the nest gets whacked, they will build close by.

When they mate, the male flys very high and does figure 8's trying to impress his female while calling out in a high pitched scream. The female will coax him down to the nest for the dirty deed and to share a fish or two.

You do you. I've washed my hands of the consequences of my first and biggest mistake's decisions more than once.

Latest example - a trip to NYC. I slept easily with the decision to let fate take it's course. The trip was cancelled due to COVID.

I've wondered more than once, given how many fortuitous events like this have happened in my life, if there is a divine. Even though I don't necessarily believe in one.

Matthew McConaughey has hired a Washington lobbying firm as he advocates for tighter gun laws, mental health funding and school safety measures after the school shooting in his hometown of Uvalde, Texas.

McConaughey brought on Avisa Partners, an international consulting and lobbying firm, in his campaign for "gun responsibility" in the U.S. - a term he uses to describe policies such as red flag laws and mandatory waiting periods.

Avisa will serve as representative of the famous actor in Washington. The registration for the partnership was filed Wednesday, linking Avisa Partners to McConaughey's holding company, according to a report from Politico.

Works okay for higher risk patients--the trial did not go that well with ordinary folks.

Major issue is some people have return of symptoms a couple of days afterward which then go away.

Essentially, it is like Tamiflu, works best when taken on onset and doesn't do anything if taken too late.

Bass fishing marketing is the same. Tournament fishing has become a rich man's game. It left me behind many years ago. If pro golf is elitist, pro bass fishing is more so.

I don't know how LIV will affect golf, but when various pro bass fishing organizations proliferated, it led to market saturation. I don't think it was good for the sport or for the environment.

355 The whole LIV golf debacle has been handled just about as badly as possible by all participants.

Who could have predicted that a league run by, and whose participants are almost to a man some of the biggest egos in all of professional sport, would have an issue dealing with change?

Gonna be a rude awakening for some of these dudes when they lose all of their sponsors because there are no eyeballs on LIV golf and their private jet travel suddenly dries up.

True. But at least there is a small element of risk. Ever seen a bass boat flip on the water at full tilt ? I have. Ain't nothing to save there.

Golf Carts don't do that. Yet.

363 When I played golf as a yuute I was pretty good. Played consistently in the low 80s. I had a shitty set of old clubs but they worked for me so I never “upgraded” . And I would often play with dude s who spent $700 on the latest and greatest driver only to out hit them by 40 yards on every hole right down the middle. I could feel the seething. Lol.

Imagine you are a slave. You can't read or write. You don't even know how make your mark on any legal document. All your family is scattered to the winds. Emancipation comes along, union troops liberate you.
OK, you're now free. Good luck!
This is why a lot of emancipated blacks followed the troops all the way to DC.

I applaud this. And, furthermore, he may want to dig this hole in return for a guarantee of dinner. But I like my digging a hole entertainment to be a bit more results driven. Hence, I support the Pro Digging Association. And to Hell with any of these uppity shovel enthusiasts that go digging for the LIV Dig Tour.

Sure if you're a regular Joe, take the money.

But if you're good enough to play the Tour, play for the trophies, and you'll end up with enough money to be comfortable for life.

My prediction is that the USGA, the R&A, and the Masters will preclude LIV golfers from playing in their events going forward 2023.

It remains to be seen what the above entities do with grandfathered players (i.e. Lifetime entry to the Masters for former winners)

It seems like Lust is probably among the most scalable ones.

Greed is kind of zero-sum, as each greedy person conflicts with the ambition of other greedy people.
