    “Animal ambassador” Ruuxa, a six-week-old cheetah cub that was rejected by its mother, is now “best friends” with a 7-week-old Rhodesian ridgeback puppy, which will be his lifelong companion, San Diego Zoo officials say.

  4. An oldie, and a goodie.

    Starting at 02:49, on the harmonica, with the bare feet, is Shel Silverstein, who wrote most of Dr. Hook and the Medicine Show’s lyrics, and plenty of wonderful kids’ books, too.

    Never Stop Believinโ€™

    Taken from Jonathan Caineโ€™s new memoir, Donโ€™t Stop Believinโ€™, this post captures Jonathanโ€™s reflections about former lead singer and co-song writer Steve Perry, with whom he wrote many of Journeyโ€™s iconic hits.

    • Thank you, Lucille. Excellent link.

      There was so much Christianity in 80s pop, in hindsight. Even in the heavy metal.

      Cyndi Lauper’s “True Colors”, for instance. Everything by Van Halen was positive. Genesis’ “Mama”, the best anti-abortion song ever performed, though he denies it.

      I tell kids at work, when Journey comes on the Pandora: There are two types of people in this world — people who love Journey, and liars.

          • I’ve got my dehumidifier and my humidifier battling it out right now.

            We’ll see who wins.

            Al Gore is celebrating Earth Day… by taking a fleet of private jets around the world, and burning more carbon than most of us do in a year, in just an hour. And laughing. Probably with a little third-world kid on his lap.

            As John Bigbutte would say, “Laugha while you can, monkeyboy.”

              I only ask because, well, this isn’t my blog and stella might tell me to mind my own business, but if this means what I think it means, I think it needs to stop. Obama was accused elsewhere in this thread of a serious crime based on a picture a little girl had taken with him. Not on solid evidence or at least strong circumstantial evidence, but on a picture. This looks like an insinuation Al Gore has done the same.

              I don’t like Obama. I don’t like Al Gore. But I’m very sensitive these days to people being accused of the crimes that appear to be alleged here. This is the stuff that ruins lives, and I’ve seen it happen. Nothing less than solid evidence will do for even the suggestion to be made. There is plenty of wrongdoing those two can be credible accused of. Events that have been referred to in some comments should not even be brought up unless there is credible evidence for it.

      One year Czar & I cut down the lingustrum hedges on both sides of our lot at our house in N. O. on Earth Day. Not because it was Earth Day & we were oppositional, of course, but because they make stinky flowers which make many people very allergic, & attract wasps which build dangerous nests right by the driveway. Later today, I may spray weed killer on versions problem areas, including poison ivy. As you can see, I am a practical Earth Day observer.

    With all of the talk about President Trump’s infidelities, did the rest of you know about George H.W. Bush’s long-time affair with Jennifer Fitzgerald? Apparently it was uncovered at the time he was running for reelection and reported in the newspaper, but I don’t remember ever hearing about it, and it supposedly was the reason for Barbara Bush’s depression. James Baker was opposed to Fitzgerald, who was GHWB’s primary confidante for many years, working for him first in Beijing, and right on through his political career.

    This is the guy who had progs and teachers going into vapors and was going to punish his University if he didn’t publicly apologize. The town he talks about is a little town, if it can happen in a little rural town in Oklahoma, it can happen anywhere and likely is.

    I promise it is worth the time it takes to listen to it.

  11. We have had a big family weekend. Yesterday my second son & my youngest brother’s oldest daughter just graduated from college, Eastern Michigan University, with Bachelor’s Degrees! Yesterday was also my parents’ 56th wedding Anniversary, providing an enduring example of love, laughter, character, perseverance, & Christian witness to us all! Today my niece, yesterday’s graduate, called to say that she & her boyfriend just got engaged! They may marry as early as August.

    All of my mom’s natural descendants, 14 kids & grandkids (& 3 step grandkids) are All committed Christians! All spouses & fiances also serve the Lord. Most of the kids & grandkids made a commitment to purity & saved/are saving themselves for marriage. My mother was “conceived in sin” (as are we all) to 2 unwed teenagers & adopted as an infant by a loving couple who couldn’t have their own children & had already adopted my grandpa’s sister’s out-of-wedlock son. The Lord brought forth, protected, & preserved her life…& led her to a place of hungering & thirsting after Him, going beyond her more traditional Christian upbringing into a vibrant, prayerful, & worshipful relationship with the King of Kings! God has redeemed the time & through my mother has brought tremendous blessings to the world.

    I am so incredibly thankful for the heritage of faith that has permeated my family! Thank the Lord for Godly parents, husband, & children who choose to follow The Narrow Way & Path of Peace in Christ. Thank you Jesus for this blessing that I too often take for granted.

    28 Her children arise and call her blessed;
    her husband also, and he praises her:

    lilbirdee12โ€™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.

    In Jesus name, we pray. Amen.
