      Thank you! I feel exactly the same way. I wish we would completely abandon the ridiculous convention of daylight saving time. It never accomplished what they said it would: reduce energy consumption. Time to sweep it into the dustbin of history.

        And we’re forced to listen to blathering about how Congress debates yearly the merits of dumping DST (yeah, right…) and the number of people who’re stressed and have heart/panic/asthma attacks during the DST transition. Oh yeah, and the endless/mindless plume of stories about people (in the spring) late for work.

    Afternoon all! The Iditarod Trail Sled Dog Race has reached the 4th section, the Bering Sea coast. Nic Petit arrived at Unalakleet just before 10 am this morning, winning the First to the Coast award: a beautiful ivory minature sled dog team carved by a local artist and $1500 in gold nuggets. He rested there for 5 hours and left before any of the chasing teams arrived. Here is a short description of his visit to the village known affectionately as “Unk”, it’s 3-letter airport designation:
    https://iditarod.com/musher/nicolas-petit-out-of-unalakleet-at-14-48/

    The pack chasing him consists of Joar Ulsom, Jessie Royer, and Pete Kaiser, who are about 15 miles behind him. Aliy Zirkle is two more places back, in 8th position.

    The section of trail between Kaltag and Unalakleet is the longest distance between any two Iditarod checkpoints, 85 miles. It is very hilly country which often has deep, soft snow. I’ve not yet heard any description of the trail conditions from Kaltag to Unk, but Nic made the run in under 11 hours at 7.76 mph–a fast pace at this point 700 miles into the race. I’ll be interested to hear how the next 3 mushers describe their run to the coast. They are about 7 miles out, so it shouldn’t be much more than an hour.

    Our rookie, Jessica Klejka, is holding steady in 36th position. She is currently resting at Eagle Island.

    Here are a few photos from the official Iditarod photographer, Jeff Schultz:

    Found this interesting link:

    The first photo is of Aliy and her team pulling away. I recognize the back of her parka.

    Now there are 300 miles to go, in the section of the race most likely to have devastating weather impacts. The Last Great Race is on!

    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.

    A prayer for Justice Kavanaugh and Col. Flynn:

    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.

    In Jesus name, we pray. Amen.

    This is so frustrating. I will never give another cent to either NRLC or Oklahomans for Life. I still can’t believe this man refused to say abortion is murder and he’s done everything in his power to fight against SB13.
