What a serious morning this is. Yesterday was nice, the sun was shinning, the temps here got up to 66 (F) and it was almost possible to believe everything was right with the world. Of course, that was not to be. Accuweather began sending notifications late yesterday afternoon. The cold was returning, and bringing with it snow and ice. Right now they're predicting for around 3 inches (about the size of Putin's dick), to begin falling when I leave work this evening. Isn't it a good thing I'm off tomorrow?
Yesterday was busy here. I did a large water change in the big tank - algae, you know, it helps to keep it in check. I was also surprised to see there was algae starting up in the new tank, which is in a location that will never get direct sunlight, and I'm beginning to believe the main culprit is the LED lighting all tanks come with nowadays. The old fluorescent lighting was never this bright, and while the lighting on the big tank can be adjusted, that on the new tank cannot. Shit.
Since I've begun writing The Body Under Ice, I've been looking for song lyrics. Thanks to Sirius XM, this one is probably going to be included.
And, of course, Russia has invaded the Ukraine. Only a dumbass would have believed Putin's lies. He was rather blatant about it too, wasn't he? He and Macron sitting at the long, white table was a set piece, nothing more. Trump is ecstatic. In his small mind this is what a strong leader does... invade. And the GOP continues to fracture. They desperately want to blame Biden and are doing so publicly, but only the MAGAs want to side with Putin. Perhaps the idea of something like that happening in this country is striking a little too close. I do hope you realize that there is a certain group of Republicans who would have no problem attacking cities in the United States to force their will upon the people. The idea that would lead to a horrific insurgency simply doesn't occur to them, the same way it doesn't occur to Putin. Yes, that's right, they are that damn dumb.
Ohhh I got algae in my little water garden too and it was the sun. I had to literally scrub everything and start from scratch.ReplyDelete
And of course Vlad invaded Ukraine. He's a madman, that's why Cheeto kisses his ass. Well, also because he owes Vlad tons of money and Vlad has the Pee Tapes.
Are you sure it's algae? I had what I thought was algae and it turned out to be a bacteria.Delete
We pretty much had the same extremes in weather. Glorious sunshine and upper 50s last weekend to cold, blowing snow this week. Glad you were able to find a cool song for your book. I read all of the Ukraine news last night and it made me even sadder than I was.ReplyDelete
Al Jazeera had a nice commentary about Putin in which they said he hasn't learned a single thing from history.Delete
Russia is and always has been hated by the US for the most part....so if the gop sides with Russia I don't see why anyone would vote for these dipshits again. A vote for them is like a vote for Russia. Making them turncoat to this country.ReplyDelete
There used to be a saying, better dead than red, maybe we should make it popular again.Delete
Unfortunately, if Russia is successful in the Ukraine, China will use it as a road map to Taiwan one day.ReplyDelete
China is paying very close attention. From what I've been reading, they were taken off guard by the invasion.Delete
The GOP has shown their true RED colors.ReplyDelete
The rightwingnut media has shown themselves to be Russian state TV.
As I said to Maddie, we used to say better dead than red, looks like we should start saying it again.Delete
What the ReTrumplican party does and says now no longer shocks me, they are becoming all the more unhinged and dangerous. And since the Sycophants and MAGAts will remain the Enemy from within, we must find a way to ensure they aren't allowed to freely commit Domestic Terrorism and erode or destroy Democracy and this Nation.ReplyDelete
They have this desperate need to say "shut up, we're in charge." We can never let that happen.Delete
