    I watched that Freesian/cow video last night & it was hilarious!

    Today’s painting is “Blanca” by Anne F. Fallin. I like a well done watercolor effect in animal paintings.

    Perhaps Blanca is today’s horse – the Percheron. Percheron horses originate from Western France and are an intelligent, hard-working breed who have the tranquil nature of most heavy breeds. They vary in size, ranging from 15.1 and 18.1 hands and weighing anywhere from 1900-2600 lbs. The exact ancestry of this breed is unknown, but it has been suggested that Arabian and Boulonnais horses were bred to create the Percheron. Percherons first came to the U.S.A. in 1839 where they have been used for a wide range of work-tasks. They are A versatile draft horse that has excellent free moving paces and is often used for both draft and ridden work. They were also oneof the foundaion horses for the American Cream breed. Three colors of Percheron are popular, however two are almost extinct.

    Here is a lovely Percheron. Notice the proportion of front to back of the horse:

    Here is what some consider the ideal Percheron head:

    and here is a mare & colt

    A bombshell, if true:

    Whistleblower makes shocking IRS, insider trading allegations

    A whistleblower made this shocking allegation to me last week: the IRS was tipping off members of Congress to corporate takeovers so the elected officials could profit from insider trading.

    My snitch also charged that higher-level employees of the IRS also used that information to enrich themselves.

    This may sound crazy but remember: Up until a few years ago members of Congress were allowed to trade stock based on information they got while performing their public duties.

    It wasn’t until 2012, during President Obama’s tenure, that the practice was banned.

    But the difference between what had been going on legally until 2012 and what my whistleblower is contending is enormous.

    Everyone assumed that members of Congress were just profiting from things they happened to learn while working on their committees β€” that a drug was going to get turned down by the FDA, for instance, or that a company was sniffing around to see how regulators would feel about a merger.

    That was bad enough!

    What the whistleblower alleges goes well beyond that and is, quite frankly, freakin’ mind-boggling…

        Being as it’s a b/w photo, it was likely taken prior to 1960. The Cord probably needed repairs and wasn’t worth much on the resale market then. So the owner just parked it and waited for a better day.

        BTW, I had to look up “Insulbrick.” In case others were puzzled, it’s the insulated fake brick siding on the garage.

    Just made pesto (with basil and Italian parsley), and I’m cooking some cavatappi. That, along with the last bratwurst and the last of the ratatouille, is dinner.

    For czar – you don’t have to put pine nuts in your pesto. You can use any kind of nuts, or none at all.

    Seen on Facebook, in response to this article on Fox, about a Boston-area mayor who is boycotting Sam Adams beer because of support for President Trump. It’s a quote from the original Samuel Adams:

    https://www.foxbusiness.com/politics/boston-area-mayor-boycotts-sam-adams-after-founder-praises-trump

    β€œIf you love wealth greater than liberty, the tranquility of servitude greater than the animating contest for freedom, go home from us in peace. We seek not your counsel, nor your arms. Crouch down and lick the hand that feeds you; May your chains set lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that you were our countrymen.”

    The people he was referring to at the time became Canadians.

    A few minutes ago I was looking through the photo collection at one of the Los Angeles private museums and saw this photo taken in the heart of Hollywood…


    1937 – View showing a 1936 Packard 120 Straight Eight Coupe making a right turn onto Hollywood Boulevard from Cahuenga. Photo by Herman Schulteis

    Historical Notes
    Packard was an American luxury automobile marque built by the Packard Motor Car Company of Detroit, Michigan, and later by the Studebaker-Packard Corporation of South Bend, Indiana. The first Packard automobiles were produced in 1899, and the last in 1958.

    According to many people the introduction of the Packard 120 (seen above) was Packard’s savior in the ’30’s during the final years of the Great Depression.*

    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.
