      I was there once. It was a heck of a climb down a rickety path and ladder on a really hot day, but an amazing place.

      Been there, got sweaty and dirty there, got Anthropology credits there. Cautionary note should be: DON’T BUILD YOUR CITIES IN HIGH PLAINS DESERTS!

      I really enjoyed the Anasazi digs. Spending the nights in the ruins of thousand year old kivas, rappelling down cliff faces to look into storage caves they’d carved into them to protect stored crops, watching BYU students try to wake up at the crack of dawn without coffee…priceless.

      Side note: I learned to rappel as an Engineer in training but NEVER ONCE used it in the military in 40 years.

    10 πŸ™‚ β€˜s

    1) If it were possible I would believe that Simon’s voice is more beautiful than that of the angels.

    2) Best advice I have recently received; β€œClose your eyes and pray in the silence of your soul.”

    3) β€œSometimes I get so immersed in my own company, if I unexpectedly run into someone I know, it’s a bit of a shock and takes me a while to adjust.” __Kazuo Ishiguro

    4)

    5) Cotton candy at your hometown fair.

    6) 100 stacked sunsets

    7) The feeling of fresh brushed teeth.

    8) 19-year-old Jimi Hendrix during his time in the US Army, where he trained as a paratrooper, 1961

    9) The fabulous implosion of Rep. Erica β€œSmollett” Robinson’s β€œGo back where you came from!” tall tale.

    Bonus smile the soy boy liberal democrat who confronted Erica on her poor behavior said something along the line of β€œYeah I did call her a lazy stupid b*tch” because that’s what I though of her. But I never said, go back where you came from.” πŸ˜‚

    If someone wrote this in a script it would be comedic genius.

    Smashingly funny.

    Folks they are eating their own.

    10)

    we danced by moonlight;
    fluttering like butterflies,
    surfing latent heat,
    that whispered the promises
    of an angel meant for me.

    __Mr. Darcy

    G’afternoon, Stella and Stellars.
    Anyone in need of a pick-me-up?
    This Daily Caller guy is talented. his vids are always irreverent of any situation in which he purposely places himself. But this “interview” with Rep Dan Crenshaw must be his best. 7:39

    Now, you tell me – was Rep Crenshaw in on this? Or is Rep Crenshaw just reacting to Mr Shkreli?
    Have a Great Afternoon!

    Afternoon all. Packing underway! And I cleaned out that junk drawer I’ve been whining about. Threw that crap away rather than box it up! But man, sure is slower going than I thought, even though I’m throwing away more than half my stuff rather than pack it, or giving it away. Still slow going.

    I might come out of this deal knocking that Kondo woman off her minimalism mountain and take the no crap title. We shall see.

    I was listening to a podcast over the weekend and it was a story of an honor killing in Canada. It was carried out by a Sikh family, which was unusual because I didn’t think that Sikhs went for that sort of thing. But what struck me about the story was how, when the mother of the girl (yeah, her mom was in on it, and actually was the one who told the hitmen to do what they wanted to the girl,) and uncle were in Canada when it happened, they had arranged for the murder to take place while the girl was in India, and when India wanted the pair extradited, Canada just dragged their feet about doing it.

    I wonder how much of Canada’s foot-dragging might have to do with multiculturalism, though I don’t know how big that was back in the 90s when the crime was commited. :/

    I don’t know, but I wonder.

      Sad. And you can bet your bottom dollar that Canada’s foot dragging was motivated by “cultural sensitivity.”

        Their “cultural sensitivity” made then at best aiders and abetters of people who thought murdering a girl for wanting the right to do what she wanted with her own life was okay.

        As me for me, I prefer the way the British handled it when they asserted their cultural superiority over people in India who thought it was appropriate to burn a widow on her husband’s funeral pyre.

        All cultures are NOT equal.

      I remember a Mideastern family being monitored by the FBI, they’d bugged their home as they thought Papa was a terrorist. Bureau instead caught, on the tapes, Papa killing his daughter for acting ‘too western’. Bureau, as not unusual, delayed busting Psapa as they didn’t want to jinx the terrorism bust but finally did. One of the excuses I heard was that as the murder happened off of ant Federal ground it was a local matter, best the Bureau could have gotten was a Civil Rights bust…and the Bureau hates helping locals who may have a hand in something they’re doing. This was in the early 80s, well before the Clinton era PCness towards murdering Moslems.

    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 Gen. 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.
