Morning Surprise

We've had four pineapple guava shrubs for about 6 years.   Even though we water our plants, they didn't offer much during the drought years.   I didn't give them much thought until I was out this morning and noticed they are flourishing.   And so I snapped on my macro lens and captured the delightful little flowers.   I posted on a macro group in Facebook and someone commented that the flowers are delicious to eat, I suppose in salads.   I haven't tried that but since I enjoy flowers on my salad, I might give it a try.



We are staying home for the holiday weekend.   If you are going to be out on the roads, please drive safely and watch out for the other drivers.

My Two Cents

I don't know where this is going to end, this disaster of a presidency.   I don't think 45 wanted to be President.   I think he wanted the attention and to be able to yell and scream and blow his own horn.   The real job?   I don't think he really understood what was involved, what it meant for him to be in a position of power that's not King.   So now here he is, still doing whatever he wants, others be damned, democracy be damned.   The ties to Russia are mind blowing, the many many links to individuals and institutions that are involved with money laundering in a huge way are alarming in a way that I don't see how it can't all be tied together at some point.   

Every single day, the Republicans and 45's "people" try to excuse it all away.   It's going to come to an end.   It has to.   Our democracy cannot stand up under the blatant disregard for the rule of law, separation of powers, checks and balances, and accountability to the American public.

I just had to say something.   Facebook doesn't want to hear it and I just want to put it out there somewhere.   This is my space.   We still have freedom of speech.


What Have They Done?

Blogger made some changes this week.   I didn't dig in enough to understand them because most, I'm sure, don't apply to my needs...
