Anyone else

feel like a rescue dog?

Like our dog, Jagger. He was living on a mountainside, sleeping huddled in various weather out in a chain. He'd never been inside a house.

We were lucky to get him for free on Craigslist

His first week with us he went on an 18 mile hike with my husband. It's been full speed even since.

Anyway, point is, we all Americans just went from sitting in a cold hole in the dirt to Christmas at gramma's with this new Biden Harris administration!!!!

Any big Seattle Seahawks fans here?

I'm psyched that in about 20 minutes I will be remotely attending a luncheon where the keynote speaker is:

On MSNBC last night there was "breaking news"

from a NYT article about drumpf's direct incitement of the riots, with connecting dots, etc. IIRC Mike Schmidt was on the byline with others.

Not finding it on their site today.

Anyone else received crazytown group emails from random acquaintances?

Just received one this morning from a professional acquaintance -- Qanonish conspiracy about the vaccine.

Not "bcc'd," so now another 20 crazies have my professional email address!

Fuck - she sends out this crazytown hydrochloroxiquine or whatever ("America's Front Line Doctors" ) email to me - without any knowledge or discussion of my views, just doesn't care. I recently kindly had a mentoring session with her so she has my email and made this assumption, and then shares it with 20 other loonies from her address book! Forcing me to reply all telling her I'm not interested and remove me from the list!

I better not start getting emails or confrontations from the others on the list.

Livid at these people. No sense of civility!
