Largest moth in the world disguises itself as a snake. This is absolutely astounding.

A thought for today. I have a birthday coming up soon and this seemed appropriate.

Nobody grows old merely by living a number of years. We grow old by deserting our ideals. Years may wrinkle the skin, but to give up enthusiasm wrinkles the soul.

For once,, I sincerely hope TFG is correct.

Statement by Donald J. Trump, 45th President of the United States of America

10/13/21

If we donít solve the Presidential Election Fraud of 2020 (which we have thoroughly and conclusively documented), Republicans will not be voting in Ď22 or Ď24. It is the single most important thing for Republicans to do.

I'm hopeful that his cult will take these words to heart.

Has anyone read Stephanie Grisham's book "I'll Take Your Questions Now"?

I've read several books about Trump and his time in office, but not any by a person who was actually in his administration. I'm just wondering if it reveals anything interesting or if it's worth the time and money. Any insight will be helpful.

An interesting article concerning the Capitol windows broken during insurrection.

https://www.latimes.com/politics/story/2021-10-04/jan-6-rioters-exploited-little-known-capitol-weak-spots-a-handful-of-unreinforced-windows

WASHINGTON ó Four major access points that Jan. 6 rioters used to break into and overtake the U.S. Capitol had something unusual in common: They were among a dozen or so ground-floor windows and glass-paned doors that had not been recently reinforced.

The majority of the Capitolís 658 single-pane windows were quietly upgraded during a 2017-19 renovation of the historic building. The original wooden frames and glass were covered with a second metal frame containing bomb-resistant glass.

But planners skipped about a dozen ground-floor windows, including some located in doors, because they were deemed to be low risk in the event of implosion, largely due to their discreet or shielded location, or because the building couldnít structurally handle the load of the heavier frames.

And whether by sheer luck, real-time trial and error, or advance knowledge by rioters, several of those vulnerable windows and two glass-paned doors ó protected with only a thin Kevlar film added after the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks ó became easy entry points for hundreds of Trump supporters who overran and ransacked the building on Jan. 6.

Aarghhh. Where do earworms come from and why are they usually songs you despise?

Today I have this running around in my brain. Don't like it, never liked it and haven't heard it in years, but it pops up today out of nowhere.

Wives and Lovers
Burt Bacharach
Hey! Little Girl
Comb your hair, fix your makeup
Soon he will open the door
Don't think because there's a ring on your finger
You needn't try anymore
For wives should always be lovers too
Run to his arms the moment he comes home to you
I'm warning you...
Day after day
There are girls at the office
And men will always be men
Don't send him off with your hair still in curlers
You may not see him again
For wives should always be lovers too
Run to his arms the moment he comes home to you
He's almost here...
Hey! Little girl
Better wear something pretty
Something you'd wear to go to the city and
Dim all the lights, pour the wine, start the music
Time to get ready for love
Time to get ready
Time to get ready for love

How to make perfect boiled eggs.

I have not tried this yet myself, but thought I would share and see if anyone else has tried it.

https://www.seriouseats.com/the-secrets-to-peeling-hard-boiled-eggs

Lower your eggs straight from the fridge into already-boiling water, or place them in a steamer insert in a covered pot, steaming at full blast on the stovetop. If boiling, lower the heat to the barest simmer. Cook the eggs for 11 minutes for hard or six minutes for soft. Serve. Or, if serving cold, shock them in ice water immediately. Let them chill in that water for at least 15 minutes or, better yet, in the fridge overnight. Peel under cool running water.


There is some other good info at the site, but this is what interested me the most.

Meghan McCain on MTP????

That does it. I occasionally watch the show, depending on who is being interviewed. After interviewing Cory Booker, Bob Woodward and Robert Costa, Chuck Todd introduces the panel and there sits Meghan McCain.

I had to turn it off.
