Three hours until I leave for work. Wonderful. Temps today are supposed to match yesterday's, low 90s (F), though today they're calling for thunderstorms. Tomorrow they will only climb up into the mid 70s (F). If the long-range forecast is correct, every afternoon should find them hovering there.
I spent a lot of time working on the tall tank, which is the one in the living room housing the 12 barbs: rosy, golden, and spotted, 4 of each. While I don't have to work on at least one of the tanks daily, they each get their walls cleaned at least 3 times a week to keep the algae down. I've come to the conclusion that most of this added green growth is the result of the LED lighting; it's so much brighter than the old fluorescent bulbs we had when I was a kid.
My peaches are growing very fast. And the flowers? Wowza!
Conservatives trying to foist their agenda onto America are running into all sorts of problems. This doesn't mean that they care, at least not yet. They will. The last time this country embraced social conservatism this badly was back in the 1950s. Most conservatives today have either forgotten, or are too young to remember, but that decade led to the turbulent 60s, not that those years mean anything to their shortsightedness. I'm old enough to remember when you started your school day with both prayer and the Pledge of Allegiance. Today's politicized evangelicals want those days back. Without their ability to begin grooming students at such a young age, their future is in jeopardy. What they never counted on, however, is the youth of today; young people who have grown up with gay friends, and brown friends, and black friends. And these young people are growing angrier by the day
This is not what conservatives want. They need a majority of Americans to become sheep, to bow their heads and lo their acceptance. Well, that ain't happening soon.
We need to make sure we all vote because, if we don't, the sheep win.ReplyDelete
It's time we sheared them of their woolly stupidity.Delete
Those peonies (?) are just beautiful. Mine have just gone crazy right now too, but sadly they don't last long and are full of ants if I cut them and bring them in! I know, I should stop whingeing shouldn't I!ReplyDelete
I have ants, but not that many. I don't usually cut flowers.Delete
Yes, very few of the Young I speak to are on board the Cult Train of Extremist Fanatics and Fundies. Of coarse we see the brainwashed Youth that are and they're committing atrocities and getting locked up, so will lose their Voting Rights by being Convicted Felons... which Works too in order to abolish this whole Political Far Right Madness... The Pandemic did thin that Gene Pool quite a bit as well... they are dwindling in Numbers, thus their desperation and becoming more radicalized every day. Your Peonies are breathtaking, seeing Nature show out like that takes my Mind off of all the turmoil in this World... Thankfully Mother Nature is keeping her Head while Mankind is losing their Minds.ReplyDelete
You are so right about them getting desperate! Losers will always lie and cheat more if they fear the tide is against them.Delete
I went to a Catholic school in the 60's and 70's. Never felt groomed. If anything, it turned me off religion.ReplyDelete
Church of the brethren here, and I too was never groomed, in fact, I realized at a rather young age there were many problems with organized religion.Delete
