    Good morning y’all. Made my first sourdough bread yesterday. Unfortunately, two hot pieces with butter and a little beef roast swimming in juices with the standard vegetables set my weight loss back a little. Today is a salad and smoothie day! Some things are just worth it.

    BTW, while we were in Florida back in July, the house we stayed in had some basic seasonings available. They also had a bottle of Everglades Seasoning which I fell in love with. Great in making a dip, seasoning meats, and soups. It does have MSG though. I sure do like it.

    Quietly President Trump is going for the jugular.

    BREAKING: Trump Remakes 9th Circuit Court with Conservative Appointment!

    Meanwhile the press is lauding President Trump’s big DACA offer/distraction and his working Chuck and Nancy.

    Congress is not going to vote to approve DACA it would be the death nail in any republican’s 2018 election bid, DACA is going to ruled unconstitutional and POTUS is not going add millions of democratic voters to the electorate.

    Anyone enjoying the Equifax security breach?

    This should give you a warm, fuzzy feeling. 😉

    Equifax hired a music major as
    chief security officer and she has just retired

    By Brett Arends
    Published: Sept 15, 2017 8:04 p.m. ET

    Susan Mauldin, whose identity is being
    scrubbed from the internet, studied music composition

    “When Congress hauls in Equifax CEO Richard Smith to grill him, it can start by asking why he put someone with degrees in music in charge of the company’s data security.

    And then they might also ask him if anyone at the company has been involved in efforts to cover up Susan Mauldin’s lack of educational qualifications since the data breach became public.

    “Equifax ‘Chief Security Officer’ Susan Mauldin has a bachelor’s degree and a master of fine arts degree in music composition from the University of Georgia. Her LinkedIn professional profile lists no education related to technology or security.

    This is the person who was in charge of keeping your personal and financial data safe — and whose apparent failings have put 143 million of us at risk from identity theft and fraud. It was revealed this week that the massive data breach came due to a software vulnerability that was known about, and should have been patched, months earlier.”

      Makes me think all the more that it was an inside job.

      Spain: Alicante Museum whitewashes Islamic conquest, calls indigenous Spaniards “settlers”
      September 16, 2017 1:42 PM By Robert Spencer

      There is a concerted and ongoing effort to make Westerners ashamed of their history and heritage. And we have seen this kind of revisionism in museums before — here is one example from Florida. Once few people, if any, in the West value their own cultural identity, they won’t lift a finger to defend it.

        There are times I wish the Europeans had left Africa and Latin/South America to wallow in their own cultures. I can remember in a cultural anthropology class being told that the reason we haven’t found the advanced cultures that allegedly existed there in the past is they were most likely made from wood and the termites would have eaten them away by now. Yeah, the termites ate it.

    Another yearly ‘Ceasefire Peace Fest’ in New Orleans, a gallant attempt by people scared to death by the violent crime between members of an unnamed ethnic group. Even though the shooting rate climbs you can’t say the fest doesn’t work, standard explanation is “just think how bad it would be without the fest!”. Don’t know if the relgious booths, painting tables and free blood pressure checks helped but they couldn’t hurt.

    ilbirdee12’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.

    During the 28 years Grant and I lived in SoCal, we often talked about the reality that there were really very, very few efficient ways out of there in case of The Big One.

    I-15 toward Las Vegas. I-10 a little further south. Head north into nowhere on I-5 or Highway 395.

    But in terms of actually getting out of state in a hurry? Wasn’t gonna happen. And even if you did (east bound) you were facing hundreds of miles of desert where fuel would already be gone.

    Drove me crazy for almost three decades and I never heard any serious conversation from anywhere about it.

    I was SO glad to have SoCal in the rear view mirror in 1993.

    There is no way to evacuate southern California for a storm (unlikely need) or anything else (more likely need) – like war, or earthquake.

    The people we talked to over the decades mostly couldn’t seem to get through their heads that the grocery-inventory was about 24 hours in most cases. Probably some of them didn’t even know where eggs or milk came from. That’s a problem, too. Seriously.

    Anyway, just noticed this article in the Miami Herald and it describes the thing as well as anything I’ve seen, in Florida’s case.

      So true.

      We were the test baby for evacuation. It has ‘contraflow’ where the interstates have outbound traffic in all lanes, the inbound lanes too. It’s also a test baby for less than brilliant decisions such as refusing to fill in and make kevel a huge dip under a railroad bridge on the I-10 that floods, leaving the main westbound lanes from diwntown on the I-10 blocked.
      If it rains heavily before the storm arrives the non-interstate roads out of town flood leaving the interstates as primary routes. People here don’t like to evac until the storm’s in their backyard so if the I-20 dip is flooded thst means the people evacuating west have to squeeze over the msin bridge over the river and join everyone else on the Westbank tring to get the 310 bridge over the Mississippi to the I-10. Wanna try and get to the limited number of I-10 west access roads in Jefferson Parish and you have to wriggle through neighborhood streets and hope you can get onto the I-10 before the storm hits.
      If you’re lucky you can onto the causeway going over Lake Pontchartrain and get on the I-12, going tonwhere it meets I-55 north, the I-10 around Baton Rouge or east to the I-59…all are hoing yo be jammed.
      Generally the states of Mississippi and Alabama will move to close the I-10 east as their folks in the southern parts of their states will use it to move east or west as where a Gilf storm headed for the northern shore is a eild card.
      The state’s done a lot since Katrina but they’ve limited by geography. Real residents, not newbie transplants, have backroads they know but they have to get north of Lake Pontchartrain before you can use them and after Katrina many tiwns are letting evavuees stop for gas or food but they ain’t letting you park for longer than it takes to gas and grub.
      Needless to say that there are lots of cars stopped in the roadway for various reasons and traffic’s stopped dead in many places. Those knots takes hours to clear as with all lanes going outbound service vehicles can’t get them. Even when the down vehicle is moved it takes hours for that backup to clear.
      I can’t think of too many major metro areas where a major evac wouldn’t turn into a goat rope. Look at Houston’s attempt to evac before Harvey, no wonder so many folks decided to stay at home.
