  • And is it true that PBO has asked for $220 BILLION for Israel’s Iron Dome? My god, imagine what we could do if we actually had THAT money.

    Thanks for doing this outreach, Jane. Good to know.

    GM, diners. Hey, I missed the link for your work Starbuck. Could you repost so I can bookmark it?

    Thanks for the mental health day, ms.molly. Needed. My goodness, endless sadness and crazy-making every day these days.

    I always WANT them to do better, to find the better angels and all of that. It is so disheartening. I do want to “like” them truly. But it always goes wrong, it seems.

    I thought Hillary was better, but of course we know who she is here to serve.

    It is really discouraging.

    It is notable that Kerry landed at that airport yesterday despite the ban. Kind of in our face. He makes me sick every time he opens his mouth.

    Perhaps it will change if enough people speak out. We had another horror in Albuquerque this week. Not sure if it is a tone set by police killing the homeless or just very disturbed kids. I have been in the garden killing bugs. I have my first morning glory bloom today. Lots of sunflowers. Some datura, one [...]

    Sorry for the bitterness. I really am over the edge on this issue. APD killed again this week. I have been finding a lot of bugs I don’t like in my garden. A few squash bugs hatched, and I have been killing sunflower beetles and trying to wash away aphids. I do have a lot [...]

    Iron Dome is the Israeli defense operation. All the rockets (most of them anyway) from Hamas (or whomever) are shot down before they land in Israel. So this is just for the defense. Imagine what those dollars could do to alleviate the suffering in Gaza. I mean, besides just genocide, to put Palestinians out of [...]

    GM, dinerzens. I have been waking up in the night for hours for weeks, and wouldn’t you know it, as soon as I have an OE post, I slept through the night and overslept the launch. Jeez. The news today is awful. I hope everyone has a good day! I will try to hang out [...]

    Thumbnail Leopards and humans welcome at Over Easy. Good morning, all. Ruth is traveling today, so this is my effort at a substitute post. I am super-busy lately, and I don’t really have much time to hang about. So please do your part to keep the conversation going as I won’t be able to be here [...]

    Your hilarious!

    All best at the art exhibition/fair. The one in Santa Fe recently was truly horrible. Everyone agreed.

    I was once at the zoo in Little Rock. I thought I was engaging pleasantly with a gorilla, and he threw a stick at me and hit me in the head. I guess his interpretation of my engagement was not what I intended.

    Thanks for the funnies, ysd. I did not even get to read Monday’s OE until now.

    Hope everyone has a great day!

    Each time I hear this I wonder if people believe that our country is under assault by children? That the National Guard is protecting us from children??? What kind of a monster have we made of ourselves to act like this? Beyond belief.

  • Thank you for these posts, Kevin.

    Thanks for the postnhost, ms.molly. Sorry too busy. The world is so awful today, every day more horrible.

    THanks for the postnhost, Ruth.

    The deaths in Gaza are terrible, 4 little children playing in an open area, who would think this would result in them becoming targets? Just awful.

    Best to all, have a great day!

    GM, dinerzens. WIPP won’t re-open any time soon. So sorry for TX. Above ground, same as at Los Alamos, not good.

    Thanks for the Fuku updates, BT, and for Adorable Kitten.

    Hope everyone has a great day.
