    Seems like there are a lot more of those popping up, too. The crowds are a little much, one of several reasons I won’t even go in the parking lot at the WalMart here.

    Saw something about a shooting at Police HQ, there. Closing down I35, too.
    Not how we’d choose to start the day.

    You know, I’m thinking all the stores are already open today at this hour, from the massive ad lump I got in the mail last week. Pity the employees, those early line waiters are not the most pleasant, I understand.

    thanks, msmolly, here I’m celebrating BuyNothingDay. ‘Anyway, perhaps less known in Canada is that Adbusters is also the primary promoter of Buy Nothing Day, which was conceived by Vancouver artist Ted Dave in the early 1990s. In 1997, the campaign was used for the first time as a response to the day-after-Thanksgiving sales in the [...]

    thanks, MiB, an abuse it is, and used to keep the facts from coming out. A trial would bring out all the ways that Ferguson police are wrongly trained, as well as Wilson’s crime, and that threatens the courthouse gang that McCulloch depends on. Ours is supposed to be a system of laws, and when [...]

    Great, wish I could promise cranes, but I never remember seeing them there before. I can promise lots of snow geese though.
    Will email you, that would be fun.

    thanks, a real treat, all sorts of Bird! and yes, that dinner from the Salvation Army was really nice, now when I drop money in the red kettle, am I tipping the waiter? sorry.

    My house is maybe twenty minutes from Hagerman, but just to go to the lake, there are several ways. For going to some parts of it, maybe ten miles.

    thanks, Ellie, but does it include salads?
    Love the community dinner, anyway.

    Did I think to say hope everyone has a really good holiday? Now have read through other comments. Thanks, Starbuck, you want to make sure everyone feels included, and believe me, we do. As I got away from our dinner before I was hungry, I made a little drive out to Hagerman Wilflife Refuge, and [...]

    hi, back from the big Eat fest
    Had a biker gang to work with, they look so adorable in beard nets.
    We didn’t spill much, either.
    So lovely, and there’s lots leftover, what to do, what to do?
    Hope there’s nobody left hungry, at least for the day. Probably for a few days, anyway.

    thanks, attaturk. Thanks giving, nice day for remembering we can get out there and make our feelings known, and doing my job does not involve perjuring myself or shooting an unarmed kid.
    Wilson doing his job shows us the changes that need to be made, beginning with retraining cops who’ve been taught that murder makes the safe place they’re supposed to be paid to engineer.

    bird stories, then I go do errands; We had a farm with chickens, and the Great Dane tried to play with a setting hen, and broke her. I put the remains in a plastic bag and let a friend who teaches biology put her in his freezer, for dissection by a class later. My teenaged [...]

    Something we have to get through, learning what we were told to cherish wasn’t good at all, when you look at it properly.
    Takes a bit of painful introspection.
    and you knew that.

    Guess I listened to too many folk songs.
    and met actual people.

    Remembering my parents’ annoyance when I would mention that we stole this country from American natives. We’d always been taught they were basically stupid and we were their benefactors.

    Trying to sell an urban myth going around, that black kids go postal and commit suicide by cop.
    of course, Wilson talked on his radio and destroyed his own story.

    What we probably don’t have contact with is the sort that want the police to knock a few heads, to keep order. thankfully not, for my part.
