    Spent a chunk of the afternoon processing and pickling jalapenos from the garden. Didn’t use rubber gloves so I won’t need NSAIDS for my arthritis until Monday or so.

  6. Morning everyone πŸ™‚
    Today’s painting is Katsushika Hokusai’s The Great Wave Off Kanagawa:

    and here is a Blaschka Portugese Man of War:

    The below are Blaska porpita – the 1st 2 are Porpita porpita the 3rd is another type of Porpita. It dawned on me to try and “erase” the stands from the pictures to better show how they float in the water, so I have done so as I am able.:

    The next image is NOT a Blaschka. It is by Caleb Nichols art glass sculptures, but the wave matched the painting so much, I had to include it.

    • I also wanted to post my Caturday picture here – what if you also found this in the wave?!

      Here is some info about PMOW from oceanservice dot noaa dot gov:

      The Portuguese man o’ war, (Physalia physalis) is often called a jellyfish, but is actually a species of siphonophore, a group of animals that are closely related to jellyfish. A siphonophore is unusual in that it is comprised of a colony of specialized, genetically identical individuals called zooids β€” clones β€” with various forms and functions, all working together as one. Each of the four specialized parts of a man o’ war is responsible for a specific task, such as floating, capturing prey, feeding, and reproduction. Found mostly in tropical and subtropical seas, men o’ war are propelled by winds and ocean currents alone, and sometimes float in legions of 1,000 or more!

      Resembling an 18th-century Portuguese warship under full sail, the man o’ war is recognized by its balloon-like float, which may be blue, violet, or pink and rises up to six inches above the waterline. Lurking below the float are long strands of tentacles and polyps that grow to an average of 30 feet and may extend by as much as 100 feet. The tentacles contain stinging nematocysts, microscopic capsules loaded with coiled, barbed tubes that deliver venom capable of paralyzing and killing small fish and crustaceans. While the man o’ war’s sting is rarely deadly to people, it packs a painful punch and causes welts on exposed skin. Beachcombers be warned: The stalwart man o’ war may still sting you even weeks after having washed ashore. (As Czar can attest to!) Here are a couple of photos of them beached:

      I may miss posting a few days next week. Had to bring DH to ER yesterday, and will have appointments next week. Please pray for his heart condition to be healed. Thank You.

      Thanks, TOG&C! Hokusai’s work is beautiful!
      Would love to have a copy of this: “Thirty-six Views of Mt.Fuji – Umezawa” – woodblock print ca. 1829-33

  7. Parking spaces are few and far between in my town this time of year. The business owner next to me thinks he owns the one rare spot outside his building, (he doesn’t, it’s city property) and so he put a sign up saying so. (While he was putting the sign up, bless his heart, on a gas pipe with U-bolts, I waited patiently for him to screw all the nuts on the bolts before telling him it was upside-down, which it was.)

    Yesterday, a young cop from an adjacent town asked me very politely if he could park here, in this spot. Sign on the wall says “Official Cars Only”. I laughed out loud. You’re asking ME? You’re a cop! And your car looks pretty official, it being a cop car and all!

    Neighbor business owner is a good guy, too, and on my page politically. He just thinks he owns a parking space that he doesn’t. Which is why I waited for him to screw that sign on upside-down.

    City life can be funny.

    Either John Podesta was quite a Russian dupe, or…
    By Monica Showalter – July 28, 2018

    Was John Podesta a Russian dupe? At a minimum, he was a Russian dupe, based on information from a long, interesting article today titled “How Silicon Valley Became a Den of Spies,” from Politico magazine.

    Warren man charged in fight over President Trump

    WARREN β€” Fred T. Dickson, 58, of Southern Boulevard Northwest, was charged Thursday with misdemeanor aggravated menacing in a Tuesday night neighborhood fight over President Donald Trump.

    No arraignment date is listed in Warren Municipal Court records.

    Dickson told police he was across the street at his neighbor’s house talking about cars when he told his neighbor’s friend, John S. Cope, 30, of Warren he was β€œnot a fan” of the president, which triggered an argument.

    Cope said Dickson was extremely intoxicated and threw a can of pop, which led to more arguing and Dickson saying, β€œI will show you,” Cope said.

    Dickson left for a short time and returned with a shotgun, pointed it at Cope and threatened to kill him, Cope said. The argument ended after Cope disarmed Dickson, police said.

    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.

    In Jesus name, we pray. Amen.
