    10 Smiles.

    1) The beauty of nature.

    2) President Trump’s CPAC speech.

    3) Some highlights from President Trump’s speech.

    Right now we have people in congress who hate our country.”__The Relentless President Trump

    President Trump said a democrat senator called him and said that he was doing a good job, he followed up with ”Check the phone records at the White House………… Everyone else does”. __Comic Genius.

    ”Everyone Is Doing Better Except the #NeverTrumpers- They’re on Mouth-to-Mouth Resuscitation.

    President Trump called the freshmen democrats “Crazed lunatics,” he called the various democratic investigations “bullsh*it”.

    President Trump brought Hayden Williams to CPAC and brought him on stage.

    Announced that he will sign an Executive Order requiring universities to support free speech if they want federal money.

    And.

    Wait what! ? The rube President Trump understands the rhetorical underpinnings of the difference between saying “democrat” and “democratic”?

    4) The scumbag suspect who savagely assaulted conservative Hayden Williams on the Berkley Campus has been arrested.

    Zachary Greenberg.

    According to information obtained from Alameda County public records, Greenberg is 28 years old. He was booked into the Glenn Dyer Detention Facility in Oakland, California at 2:27 p.m. local time on Friday. Greenberg’s arraignment is scheduled for Monday at 9 a.m. local time. His bail was set at $30,000. Jail records show that Greenberg was charged under California Penal Code 245(A)(4) F, which is classified under assault and battery. 

    5)Allergy medication that works.

    6) Frost Flowers.

    It is as beautiful as it is rare.  A frost flower is created on autumn or early winter mornings when ice in extremely thin layers is pushed out from the stems of plants or occasionally wood. (Source __Kuriositas)

    7) Legos.

    8) Sun soaked fresh tomatoes off the vine.

    9) Ocasio is doing a fine job if burning down the democrat party.

    ”Pompous little twit. You don’t have a plan to grow food for 8 billion people without fossil fuels, or get the food into the cities. Horses? If fossil fuels were banned every tree in the world would be cut down for fuel for cooking and heating. You would bring about mass death.”__Patrick Moore (Co-Founder of Greenpeace) 😎

    10) Gary B.B. Coleman

    For the bread bakers among you, from the British Museum. Re-creation of a loaf of bread found after the destruction of Herculaneum by the explosion of Vesuvius in 79 AD.

    Have you ever used buckwheat in bread?

      He has one explanation for the circular and dividing incisions but I’m thinking it may be the indentations from a circular mold designed to evenly proportion the amount of dough in each loaf and mark the individual serving proportions evenly. I’m thinking something like the apple coring and segmenting cutters you see in the store. As bread was a major staple and source of carbs for working, and especially if the baking were a communal labor saving effort, the pre-proportioning would make sense.
      Back in the bad-old-days when we were down in the 4-Corners area digging up and preserving local Indian history for the future, we’d find skeletons of not that old (current standards) prehistorical Indians who had horribly ground down teeth. Seems a primary feature in their diets was a bread made out of maze ground in sandstone metate with a stone mano stone. Seems the amount of grit in the meal was enough to grind the eaters’ teeth down over a few years. A significant number of skulls had huge jawbone damage from abscesses from teeth that had been damaged by the grit to the point they became infected. I have had abscesses and I have no difficulty feeling what it must have been like going long periods, long enough to dissolve bone, or go for the ‘treatment’ available.

    Sounds like the “conservatives” refugees from The Weekly Standard etal have gone completely off the rails:

    A Bulwark of Liberal Clichés

    https://amgreatness.com/2019/03/02/a-bulwark-of-liberal-cliches/

    No, the reporter—Molly Jong-Fast—doesn’t work for the New York Times or MSNBC. She is a freelancer for The Bulwark, a new site that claims it will save conservatism from the clutches of Trumpism. “As much of the Right descends into sophism and trollery, we will be a forum for rational, principled, fact-based conservative commentary,” wrote The Bulwark’s editor-in-chief Charlie Sykes when the site launched in January.

    But Jong-Fast, who describes herself as a liberal, provided nothing of the sort in either her Twitter diatribes or her article about CPAC. Bill Kristol, the site’s director, commended Jong-Fast’s CPAC coverage and for “triggering so many snowflakes on the right.”

    So much for “conservatism conserved.”

    They’re Basically Clinton Democrats Now
    The Bulwark is the new home for refugees of the now-defunct Weekly Standard, which was shuttered by its owner late last year. (Some of its writers subsequently were hired by the Washington Post and CNN.) Kristol, the Standard’s founder, publicly has harassed and ridiculed Donald Trump for three years; the magazine published numerous hit pieces on conservative lawmakers; and the outlet was tied to both Fusion GPS and a billionaire leftist who funds several causes antithetical to conservatism. All of those factors contributed to the once-regarded publication’s humiliating demise.

    Kristol and Sykes manage The Bulwark and predictably have ratcheted up their animus not just toward the president and his administration but also toward Republican leadership, Trump voters, and public policies once considered conservative. Terms such as the “emergency” at the southern border and “fake news” are presented in sneer quotes, as if to suggest they aren’t legitimate.

    The outlet mostly has withheld criticism of an alarming caucus of unapologetic socialists now populating the Democratic Party (with the exception of freshman Representative Ilhan Omar of Minnesota, whose anti-Semitism is impossible to ignore) while lambasting the conservative House Freedom Caucus. There was one—one—article about Senate Democrats voting to allow babies to slowly die without medical attention; the degrading media assault against high school boys attending a pro-life march only merited one article as well. (Sykes called the Covington Catholic High School lynch mob a “kerfluffle.”)…

    While McCabe goes unnoticed at The Bulwark, convicted felon Michael Cohen does not. Three articles last week defended Cohen’s egregious congressional testimony and blasted Republicans for their “hostile questioning” of the disgraced and recently-disbarred former attorney. “Put aside the hearsay about racism and Trump’s vanity,” wrote Kim Wehle, a CNN and MSNBC contributor who authored a 2017 column debunking “myths” about the Second Amendment and gun rights. “The real meat of Cohen’s testimony is going to be the predicate it lays for impeaching the president of the United States.” She also, laughably, suggested Congress should ask Cohen if he thinks the country is safe with Trump at the helm…

    Rather than offer rational, measured conservative commentary as promised, the Bulwark Boys instead are on a vengeance campaign against commentators on the Right who support the president. In a recent profile in The Atlantic, Sykes threatened to “raise the opportunity cost” for pro-Trump pundits including Victor Davis Hanson (a regular contributor to American Greatness), Hugh Hewitt, and Washington Post contributors Mark Thiessen and Henry Olsen (formerly a contributor to this site).

    And much more. Charlie Sykes, Bill Kristol

      Just read at lucianne.com that this Molly Jong-Fast person is the daughter of Erica Jong (remember her?) Why was she hired by Bill Kristol? Does he consider that a ‘conservative’ hire?

      Kristol’s a neocon, a Democrat who owns a BB gun. The Rats like him cause he’s closerer to them than he is a real conservative and they treat him sorta like those snooty uptown dogooder matrons to the hookers they want to save.

      I think the Rats use him to try and syphon off real conservatives but that works about as well as it would were we to try and use Orrin Hatch to lure Rats away from their packs.

      This whole Never-Trump folderal is just ridiculous. We have “journo’s” espousing the evils of someone who is doing everything they wanted done when Teh Won was in office. We have pols slamming everything that is being done with jobs, trade, and the NORK’s that we’ve been talking about getting done for years. My take is they all are p*ssed off that they have been exposed for being phonies in a Uni-party scam they’ve been running for the last 50+ years, and they’re gonna stomp off and stand in the corner screaming at us all, abut how stupid we are. Scroo ’em all. I hope a bunch of ’em are standing out on 5th Avenue in NYNY soon with cup in hand. :/

        Good news: your family survived…as did many millions of people down through the ages, during and after hard and repressive times, war and pestilence. And many died for which our families have stories, some embellished, no doubt, many not even having the half being told.

          Mine just had a case of the Royal red ass over Brit class structure and came here. They left the irritation but the irritation never completely left them.
          My untold stories of relatives, the ones we never heard and the ones that most fascinate me, is how my far-Eastern European progenitors lasted generation after generation living where and how they did.

    Celebrities/Stars of the 1970s and 80s:Then & Now

    I watched a couple of these nostalgia-type vids and found that a young man I’d dated in 1970 died last year. Threw me for a loop for a while being at that age when my contemporaries are passing. He was such a handsome young man. It was the era when Afros were still in vogue and since he was Italian, we called his a Wopo…totally un-PC today, of course…but the memory made me laugh through my tears.

      A while ago I checked on a high school friend who I haven’t seen since about 1971, although we wrote a few times. He studied to be a CPA and was working for the IRS in California the last I heard.

      I found out that he had died at age 35. I don’t know how.

        Living into your mid-70s and then passing after a fulfilling life and a loving family is one thing. Dying young…heartbreaking.

        One of my high school pals died in his late 20s. My dancing partner, the same. Both were such shocks because neither seemed to have any health problems. Both died of heart problems.

    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.

    Prayer to St. Michael

    St. Michael the Archangel, defend us in battle;
    be our defense against the wickedness and snares of the devil.
    May God rebuke him, we humbly pray;
    and do you, O prince of the heavenly host,
    by the power of God,
    thrust into hell Satan and the other evil spirits
    who prowl about the world for the ruin of souls.

    Hey y’all! There is not much to report yet in an IDITAROD update. The race officially started about 3 hours ago, in the town of Willow, Alaska. As with the ceremonial start, teams leave the starting line one at a time, every 2 minutes. There are 52 teams (not 53 as I mistakenly said yesterday) so it takes nearly 2 hours to get all the teams on the trail. The extra time between the first and last teams will be made up during the 24 hour mandatory rest. The first checkpoint in the race is Yentna, about 42 miles away. Dog teams (at this elite level, anyway) travel steadily at 8-10 miles per hour, so that will take about 5 hours. The front of the race should start pulling in there in about an hour and a half. Experienced mushers will stop only long enough to pick up the supply bags they shipped out ahead of the race and continue on down the trail. The snow is really good this year (meaning LOTS of it), which makes a nice trail, but slows everybody down. No one expects a record-setting pace this year.

    Here’s some links with photos:
