    Ive never seen a 2 headed snake and poisonous too. No Czar…it aint human. πŸ˜‰
    Video embeded.

    “New details were released Friday about a two-headed baby copperheadΒ found earlier this monthoutside a home in Woodbridge, Virginia.

    The snake is currently being monitored by a state herpetologist after it was examined at the Wildlife Center of Virginia in Waynesboro.

    “It appears as though the left head is more dominant β€” it’s generally more active and responsive to stimulus,” a spokesperson for the veterinary hospital said. “Radiographs revealed that the two-headed snake has two tracheas [the left one is more developed], two esophaguses [the right one is more developed], and the two heads share one heart and one set of lungs. Based on the anatomy, it would be better for the right head to eat, but it may be a challenge since the left head appears more dominant.”

    Photos and video of the snake were going viral on Facebook after Powhatan-based animal removal businessΒ Virginia Wildlife Management and Controlshared them earlier this month.”

      Once our Golden Retriver jumped in the pool in the winter. We had been lazy and not removed the leaves from the cover. He sank the pool cover, leaves and all, and his leash got tangles in the whole mess.

      My oldest son and I had to get in the icy water and get him free, and he was panicking. Praise God it was in the shallow end. It look a long time, and we were all popsicles. We all loved that dog so much, but for a few days we held a mean grudge.

      Then spring came and the boys had to get those leaves out.

      My ex’s grandfather had a retriever that lived for the fall and bird hunting season. It was a more-or-less normal dog most of the year but as soon as you hit the first day of fall it would bounce and jump around, running back and forth to where Amos kept his shotgun, begging to go out and bag birds,
      Pheasant, ducks, geese – all the same to that dog, it’s what it lived for. For much of the year it was ‘a dog’ but for those few months it was the happiest creature on earth.

  6. Has anyone watched that Jessica Chambers special on the Oprah neworks? I could not. Of the short few times I tried, it was very biased. I’m guessing they do not have any new info to share.

    According to https://wreg.com/2018/05/07/new-date-set-for-retrial-in-jessica-chambers-case/ Quinton Tellis’ new trial is set to begin September 24, so I guess that’s why they are showing the special last weekend & this week multiple times.

      Guilty verdict this time.

      Obama has been out of office long enough and the tide is turning even in the courts, depends on the competency of the prosecutor and the jury but the longer we are removed from the stench of Obama, the more integrity we will have in verdicts.

      I wonder what ever became of that really odd fire chief. Cat had me convinced that there would only be back woods justice served.

    Cooler weather is supposedly finally coming our way next week. Supposed to have some days in the seventies! High seventies but that’s about fifteen degrees better than now, at least. I’m excited.

    I would make bread, but no one would eat it. Well, okay, my husband would, but he and I don’t need to.

    I’m going to have to find a new fine way to welcome fall besides starting my sourdough.

            Hey, it was early cold all the way into May. If we have ever had -20 degree weather I have repressed that memory. I do remember some few times we got down to minus ten or twelve, could have been lower a time or two maybe.

            But dang it, it ain’t supposed to be colder than sixty or seventy in May. Sometimes it gets really hot in May. Winter is usually almost completely over here by the end of February. Of course, there was that time we had our one and only (in my lifetime) blizzard in March. We all like to died that time. Mother Nature danged near depopulated the South.

              When I lived in Texas and our playgroup still met outside at parks when it was over a 100Β°’s outside I knew I would always be a Yankee.

  14. Arguing with a progressive.

    Then they look at you, very seriously, point, and say “See? You’re starting to get it, now. WHERE DOES THE BREAD GO? I rest my case.” And then they walk away.

    This is why I don’t argue with progressives. There’s no point. I literally smile and say, “Nope! I can’t argue with that!” And for most of them, even that goes over their head. You literally cannot argue with absurdity. It’s not possible, except for maybe with Zappa or Dali, which would be a neat conversation to witness.

    I worked for almost 2 years with a really intelligent guy — both truly and definitely by his own lights –, when he met me he said, “Oh, you’re a Believer? We’re going to have lots of great conversations, admitting to me he is an Atheist.”

    I said, “No, we’re not. Watch me.”

    Speak the Gospel at all times. If necessary, use words. I would amend, “…if possible, use words.”

    Sooooooo……

    This is the meme that got James Woods suspended from Twitter.

    His alleged crime? Trying to influence an election by using false information 😜.

    Scott Adams agrees with the suspension because he believes that the meme meets Twitter’s criteria for suspension πŸ˜‚ Scott believes 30% of people are missing the humor gene. Even when I disagree with Scott’s conclusions I conceded that it would take a lot of words to logical refute his path to his conclusion.

    Leftism is about inflicting harm on those who disagree.

    Part of the reason we’re seeing unprecedented levels of leftist insanity is that they’re telling us, “If you throw us out of power, we will f*ck you up.”

    It’s a form of extortion.

    Well, they will harm us whether we leave them in power or remove them from power.

    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.
