listener said: "I have yet to see a large entity change itself much...from Church to Public School to, well, any organized group. Administration ruins so much. At any rate, I strongly believe we need a new party, or none."Agreed that a new major party is in order; I suspect that when conditions ripen, it will happen very suddenly, but what those conditions might be is as murky as the question of where on the political spectrum the new party might arise. Will the Democratic Party split? If so, how? Will a level-headed good-government party similar to the old GOP arise on the center-right? Will something like a modern People's Party? [Click] arise? Heaven knows, but we certainly seem to be entering a period of instability. I think it is fair to expect that the demons peculiar to our society will crawl out from under their rocks for a while. I hope just for a while.AlanP.S.: Ballot access is a huge problem for 3rd parties; the duopoly makes sure of that.
I am such a baby when I'm sick. 99.2F and body aches as well as dry sore throat. My normal temp runs 97.8 to 98.3F.Phooey! It's looking more like I won't get to see Maine*Grands this weekend. 😕 I also wanted to see PhD*Son before he heads to the Arctic. Germs are a big pain.
Hoping puddle is faring well despite the heavy rain, thunderstorms, flood watch and possible snow...!
We had. . . something . . . come through early this morning. Have NO idea whatthehell it was, but have never heard anything like it. Nancy says about 1/2 inch of rain, and just under 50 mph wind. What it sounded like was all the sand, small pebbles and twigs in the area hitting the house for about 10 minutes with a freight train like background noise. Jeepers. Nancy thought when it was happening that it might be another derecho.
It does seem that you had some potent wind come through. You are at the location where the trough went negative (a shift in angle) which feature causes rapid intensification. Since no harm was done, It's actually pretty cool!!
puddle!Changing "Nancy" to "Neighbor," I shared your post with an excellent weather geek friend of mine. Here's what he responded:"That's a curious one. Obviously a very heavy squall at the least but sounds like it had rotation with it as well."
The R's in the Senate formally ended the filibuster for SCOTUS nominees; granted that it had been functionally dead for some time, it seems that they must be insanely desperate. Surely they know that the Wheel of Fortune *does* turn, and that it will crush them in the future, no matter how things stand today. Actually, I'd say they are being pulled under right now.Alan

100°F and not fun.
It wouldn't be fun even if it were the outside temperature.
Here is a You Tube interview with a British journalist who lives in Syria. I hope it posts ok because I'm not sure if one of the letters is a capital O or a Zero.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xjOSZ6QgGgyI hope it comes through. Some "man" told me I was stupid for relaying what the journalist said, so I told him to go F himself.
It looks like the video has been pulled. When I tried searching YouTube after changing the capital O to a zero, it told me there were no results. When I clicked on the link, it told me the video was unavailable. Meaning the video corresponding to the number you gave exists, you just can't see it.
Well, my link doesn't come through by clicking. Don't know if you can find it on You Tube or not.
