    Wonder what happened to it. Hopefully they were able to get it to England because I’m pretty sure that Estonia was also invaded by the Nazis.

        I think we’ll see changed building codes on the Keys post-cleanup. A lot of buoldings are older, grandfathered ones that were more flinsy than they should have been. A lot of older buildings were built with hurricanes in mind but there were those built with a more vacation mode in mind.
        Keys are no stranger to major hurricanes, you pays your nickle and you takes your chances. You live on the water almost anywhere and there’s an associated risk. Many years ago in NOLA the Mississippi undercut a couple of acres at Algiers Point, right across the river from downtown. It fell into the river leaving the Point less pointy, the then built a second levee behind the mian levee just incase the river decided to do it again. Sho nuff, people have built in the area again and expect the city to mitigate the dangers of their choice. If you choose to live on active water build high, build strong and still have some place to go when nature upsets your plans.

          I’ve talked before about our flooding, three times in a short amount of time. The first time I felt sorry for all of those living so close to the lake, many had lived there for years with no worries. The second time I had to start asking why they didn’t build a little farther away or at least build them up. The third time I kind of lost some sympathy for them, because the old line, “I didn’t think or didn’t know,” didn’t really hold true anymore.

          I don’t say that to be an ass, but it’s hard for me to understand those who had to tear down their houses and start over didn’t learn after the first time, especially the second time and then the third time to do it all over again is just not very bright.

            Denial…it can’t happen again. Look at NOLA, newbies are moving into areas that historically flood in a hurticane. They look at the billions that the Corps spent armoring NOLA after Katrina, ignoring the warning that it at best protects against another Katrina though something Irma sized would flatten/flood it. They just selectively pick facts from the bowl that support their desires.

              After our first flood, on the highway next to the lake they built a house. As it was going up, I asked my husband if they did not see that a month ago that land was under water? It of course flooded the next flood and what did they do? Cleaned it up and then proceeded to build another house next to it. Third flood both houses flooded. Now they’re building two more houses.
              I guess the builder finds some real bright ones to buy them, because the first two he sold within weeks of finishing them. The two now getting built I saw today had sold signs in front of them.

                When I was growing up, there was a house on a small lake here. It was awfully low. I think it was sold at least 6, times in about 8 years. It flooded during the rainy season. Whoever owned it would dry it out and put it up for sale during the drier season. I felt sorry for the people who bought it.

                  I can’t really feel sorry for those who bought the houses on the highway. There is no way unless they’re blind they did not see the previous flood(s). Even if you didn’t drive the highway, which is doubtful, pictures of the water up to the bridge and highway was all over social media, newspapers and television.

                  Now all of the people during the third flood who should have been far enough away from the lake to not have flooded, but did, I feel sorry for.

                  I’m not saying my house is safe from everything, it is possible that if the dam was to break I’d be under water, but then so would several counties in this part of the state. A tornado could hit it and regardless of what anyone says a direct hit from a tornado and no matter how well built house is or how long it has been standing and it will suffer major damage. I do though take precautions for such an event and have a fraidy hole and have insurance.

                    They have some, but I’m not sure flooding is one of them.
                    I know once when we were looking at a property I asked if it ever flooded and was told it had not. I was concerned because how close the creek was to the house. I had to pay a fee to see if it was in a flood plain. What I was told then, which was years ago, was that unless it’s ever been declared a flood plain, aka someone paid the fee, it is up to the prospective buyer.
                    This particular property was not in a flood plain, but neighbors told me the house had been flooded before, so we didn’t buy it.

                    This property on the highway I’ve been talking about, I honestly don’t know how he’s getting away with it. I do know he’s having to finance them because they can’t get a mortgage on it because the county and corp of engineers fought him building there.

      Wow! The reporter basically said it is ok to laugh and smirk at the damages caused to the rich people, the only thing bad about rich people’s things being damaged by Hurricane Irma is the loss of work for poor people. There is no line, not even a thin one between Islam, Antifa, BLM and the MSM. They simply give the people they hate different labels.

        They can’t help themselves, with the class warfare. I wonder what their rules for writing are. Do they tell themselves, “If I write (3) Three whole sentences for my piece, and by the third one, if I haven’t advanced progressivism with dog whistles of some sort, then I have to go back, and rewrite.”?

        Is is one out of three “Sentences That Must Contain Our Ideology Somehow” that is their rule?

    What a week. I never left the fort. Still here. Everyone around here has been helping each other. Last night we had a big cook out with all the food in need of eating because it thawed out. Right about dark the electric company got the electricity flowing again. Nobody hurt just lots of trees down. Here the forest is so thick it was snapping off the treetops but no wind on the ground. Close calls but no damage. Lots of deadfall. One treetop fell right on …. my woodpile. One right between the cabin and bunkhouse. One landed in the middle of the Tangerine tree. As I was out of touch anyone got any reports on the welfare of other Florida Treepers??
    Most of my stuff held up but not buying any cheap things again. My dual burner camp stove was great to have as well as my hand pump well. Learned a lot for the next big blow. My big cooler still has ice about 2/3 melt over five days..and the 1 gallon freezer bags full of water I froze held up great in the freezer.
    Hope all the Treeps are OK…….
    One big hanging branch that I can’t get to. May try to shoot it down with old Betsey. It was a wild time when what was left of the eye wall hit about 3 am….why do they always come in the middle of the night? I think we had around 60 mph with some gusts.
    All is well.

    While REAL AMERICANS are helping out in Houston and Florida and Georgia….Dallas Texas shows its true focus having without community agreement removed the Statue of General Robert E.

      Speaking of Texas…likely Texans know this already but it was a new new one on me…

      I always thought the name “Texas” was derived from Spanish….

      “The Hainais lived near the Neches and Angelina rivers. They were the leading group in the Hasinai confederacy, a group of eight tribes that lived in Arkansas and East Texas. The word Texas (Tejas) comes from the Hasinai greeting meaning “friend.” Archeologists have found evidence that this group of people had a large settlement in the area as far back as 780-1260 A.D., with substantial farms, villages, and temples. When the French and Spanish explorers first encountered the Hasinais, they found a people who fished, grew maize, beans, and squash, and hunted small game, buffalo, and bear.”

    Taxpayer costs for Obama’s travel while in office top $105 million: Report

    http://www.washingtontimes.com/news/2017/sep/14/taxpayer-costs-for-obamas-travel-while-in-office-t/

    Judicial Watch β€” which has long tracked White House expenses paid for with taxpayer funds β€” has released a new update on the total travel expenses for former President Obama on Thursday. The cost now tops $105 million, or $105,662,975.27, to be exact.

    β€œIt is troubling to see such massive amounts of money paid out for trips that appear to have minimal value to the public interest,” said Tom Fitton, president of the watchdog group, which bases its ongoing tally on travel records obtained through Freedom of Information Act requests.

                  Gotta look at it with urban/suburban eyes where as an urbanite you are totally dependent upon the various levels of gocernment for EVERYTHING. As rednecks we have a liberating degree of personal dependence that greatly irritates the strip city folks, their agenda includes making us as miserable and dependent as they are. Properly set up wevrarely need anything from town or a city owned/protected utility service…that grates on beltway nerves.

              Brits are subjects of the Crown. Rugged individualism is not encouraged.

              Europe slaughtered or kicked out or lost to emigration everyone with a spine or a brain in WW2. It’s as simple as that. Then they invited in the opposite as replacements, from all the worst places in the world. Now they wonder what happened. It’s too bad that any person with a spine or a brain in Europe who tells them what happened gets put in prison for honestly telling them what happened. You DON’T TALK ABOUT THE EMPEROR’S NEW CLOTHES, specifically the lack thereof.

    Hey Ya’ll! My interwebs just came back on and I’ve had to delete hundred(s) of emails! We had no electricity for 1 1/2 days, but the phone and internet took a lot longer. Thank God we’ve had no damage, but some of our neighbours were not so fortunate. I’ve spent a lot of this time just thanking the lord for small mercies and I’m GRATEFUL! A few days without basics is good for us, sometimes. I really feel bad about what others have gone through and I’m still praying for all. God bless all of my friends here!
    I had surgery yesterday, but all is well, and I’m just glad to be home and things back to normal. I sincerely hope things go back to normal for everyone down South soon!

        I remember dancing to this. There was a guy who taught me to do the Western Swing. One night he asked if I was ready. I didn’t know what he meant, but I said sure. He started going really fast. I was spinning around so fast I am surprised I didn’t get dizzy. It was so much fun. I really loved dancing with him.

    lilbirdee12’s prayer:

    Our Heavenly Father, Your children come to you tonight to ask for healing and peace throughout our country so that we may return to being One Nation Under God. Guide us to be leaders in Your Kingdom, spreading Your Love and Salvation to all. Forgive us our sins and deliver us from evil.

    Lord, we ask for a blanket of protection over all our troops and law enforcement who serve to defend and protect us. Bless our representatives with the strength and wisdom they need to achieve the path You have chosen for us.

    Please place Your Guardian Angels of Protection around Donald Trump and Mike Pence and their families as they seek to lead America back to You.

    Grant us patience, Lord, as the evil ones try to anger us and cause us to fall.
    Spread blessings over Israel and Netanyahu.

    We humbly ask that You please comfort those who are grieving and in pain.
    Thank you Father, for Your Love and the gift of Life.

    And, Lord, we pray for help for the people of Texas and Louisiana who are caught in the flooding. And, now we add everyone in the path of Irma to our prayer for safety.

    In Jesus name, we pray. Amen.

    Oh, this is too funny. It needs to be tweeted. LOL

    “FLASHBACK: Bernie in 1987: Medicaid for All would β€˜Bankrupt the Nation’”
    ‘β€œI’m not an expert on it, but number one, you want to guarantee that all people have access to healthcare as you do in Canada. But I think what we understand is that unless we change the funding system, and the control mechanisms in this country to do that… For example, if we expanded Medicaid β€” everybody, okay. Give everybody a Medicaid card. We would be spending such an astronomical sum of money that, you know, we would bankrupt the nation.”’

    Just watched live jazz all day in South Haven, since it’s Jazz Festival weekend.

    Amazing music all day long. Last set was 11 or so songs, by a funk/jazz quartet. They ended it with Stevie Wonder’s I Wish, and everyone in the park was dancing and smiling. Great weather for it, too.

    I wanted to ask the singer (and also the other guy, the piano player who tore that thing up in the solo), if he was really a nappy-headed boy. I didn’t. Just shook both their hands, and thanked them. That whole park was dancing.

    More tomorrow night. If I can escape from the kitchen, I’ll witness some of it.

    Just saw that performed to perfection, and then some, in a public park, for their encore. Best live music I’ve ever seen in this town, inside or outside.
