Lot of traveling in China, in England, been in France, & across the U.S. a few times.

Indeed! This is GREAT!!

She needs to incorporate, franchise, & export her expertise, which could motivate more clean up of the Great Pacific garbage patch by making it profitable.


Little known fact:
The Ocean Conservancy reported that China, Indonesia, Philippines, Thailand, and Vietnam dump more plastic in the sea than all other countries combined.[39] China alone is responsible for 30% of worldwide plastic ocean pollution.

A very distant cousin of my husband's...

...runs a big white water outfit on the New River there in Hinton.

White water rafting is rather like eating potato chips - you can't go just once. Been twice & am definitely going back one day!



U.P., I'm with you here!

Nature's "Survival of the Fittest" leaves little room for compassion.

Gawd's a sadist.



Funny line: Americans voters are more likely...

..to vote "fuck you" than "thank you."

Especially Repubs who seem to mainly want lower taxes and a way to hurt any progressive cause, even if it hurts them!




And this one ...




It's my hubby's favorite.
Yep, we're big dog lovers...and kitties too. (Picking up our new rescue kitty Sat. )



Wonderful man.

Decades ago, while Senator, he toured a small Methodist college in the eastern part of the state, one where a close friend of ours taught. Warner was still married to Elizabeth Taylor at the time & she was traveling with him.

Story goes that when they were in the college library, Mrs. Taylor/Warner brought her lit cigarette in with her and some brave soul had the temerity to tell her that smoking wasn't allowed in the bldg. Apparently she was quite offended and responded by immediately dropping the cigarette where she was standing and put it out with her foot! This greatly offended them. The story was told for years & made the student paper.

Our friend is a Dem but being quite religious, he still holds socially conservative values as did the staff. Their attitude was women should not smoke, much less in public, especially in their library. I agree, she should've ditched the cigarette before entering the bldg.

The story didn't detract from my respect for Sen. Warner in the least - he was a good person. And I don't think Liz was a bad person - she just wasn't using the wisest judgement there.


BorderCollies are the best, smartest!

I've had 2, so I'm a bit biased.

My 2 favorite breeds: Labs (most cooperative) & B.C's (smartest). Both are exceedingly sweet.



Btw, we're getting a KITTY next weekend! First kitty in almost 40yrs!! (Hubby developed terrible allergies that have now calmed down.) If we croak before kitty, our son, who has 2 of his own, has agreed to take her.


Same here...only...

A southern city, decades ago, massive oval shape, nighttime, seen by 100's, & reported in city paper. Yet, folks who weren't there, called it b.s.

It's one of those you must-see-to-believe things.

See this thread? https://www.democraticunderground.com/100215458504

Some contentious ppl there.

Thanks. I agree with you!

PCIntern is a credible poster.

Besides...

Why is GH so sure that UFO's do not exist?
