      Fantastic Northern Lights! I wish I got to see them more often; they are a rare occasion in my part of Alaska. Next winter I’m taking a trip up to Fairbanks for a few days to really enjoy them. Trip’s already booked (nothing available for this year)!

    Idaho Senate Committee Passes Bill Banning Abortions When Unborn Baby’s Heart Starts Beating
    By MICAIAH BILGER February 15, 2021 | 7:27PM BOISE, IDAHO

    The Lewiston Tribune reports the bill would take effect only if a court in the U.S. upholds another heartbeat law.

    A number of states have passed heartbeat laws in recent years, but all have been banned from enforcing them due to legal challenges by abortion activist groups. States with heartbeat laws include Georgia, Iowa, Kentucky, Mississippi, Missouri, North Dakota, Ohio and Tennessee.

      Good morning Lucille! I am currently posting a book in pieces over on the Open Thread called Scenes Beyond the Grave. Starting tomorrow, Chapter 10, is the chapter that always makes me cry whenever I read it. It explains how Heaven puts aborted babies back together, piece by piece in harmony and love. Knowing how aborted babies are treated and handled with heavenly love makes dealing with this ugly issue down here on earth a little easier. I just don’t understand, and probably never, will how humans can discard their own flesh and blood. 😭

        Good morning, Stevie! Yes, it is difficult to understand how humans can discard their own flesh and blood. Years ago a phrase was coined regarding neglected and abused children who often end up in juvenile detention facilities–“throw-away children.” While that problem still exists within our society, today’s throw-away children include those who experience the ultimate abuse–death via abortion.

        No matter how much abortion advocates try to make people think otherwise, underneath their abortion rights philosophy is a distinct and cynical lack of love for the most vulnerable among us. The people within that murderous industry are well paid to disparage pro-life advocates and making us into the bad guys. It was sickening listening to a portion of the Hillary-Nancy dialogue the other day regarding the “Constitutional” right to abort a child. Their conclusion was that they are the ones who care about mothers and babies as indicated by all the grandchildren they have!!! Supposedly we don’t care at all. What libel!

        Our consolation is that these little ones are precious souls to God and they will be with Him forever.

    Good morning all. Cold here, it’s 23 right now and getting down to 21 by sunrise. Schools are closed. Used to be there had to be enough snow to really cause danger before they would cancel school when I was a kid. Then the number of inches threshold decreased until it just had to be a dusting. Now cold weather does it, been that way for a couple of years.

    Was it here one of you posted a link to an article written by a psychologist or psychiatrist about the effect of our reactions to the pandemic on kids? He said in our fear, masking paranoia for something that has a 99.5% survival rate, our seclusion, elimination of human contact, and our denying the kids school and play we are teaching them that the world is a threatening place and they can never have safety or security. At a time in their lives when they will be forever imprinted, we are teaching them the world is mostly to be feared, the opposite of what parents traditionally have tried to teach their kids.

    I fear what the outcome will be for these poor kids in 20 years.

    Mornin’ All. Grey, humid, coolish, and a little rainy here today. It is supposed to rain most of the day. Last night we had several storms come through with a lot of lightening. I think these rolling blackouts need to be looked into. Tucker Carlson talked about them last night. In Texas, it is because of switching over to green energy. The windmills froze up and didn’t work. And, now people could die from the cold. There is probably a lot of that in other places, too. Stay warm.

    So, here it is, NOT MARDI GRAS in NO. Instead, they are having Yardi Gras, with House Floats, porch parties, and WWNO playing appropriate music all day on the radio. One of the local TV stations, WWL or WDSU, will have coverage by going from decorated house to house on St. Charles Ave. from 10 a.m. CST. Tundra, Stevie and Angel, and anyone else who wants to spend a fun few hours, here is your chance to re-live your time there.

    A balmy 12 degrees right now in our part of Indiana. Hubby used the tractor to clear the long drive and I dug out his car. The sun is shining and it doesn’t feel nearly as cold as the thermometer indicates. It’s a beautiful morning with loads of powdery stuff all around. Our dog is having a blast and the kitties are content inside, pleased to be spared the white fluffy stuff.

    It’s nice to have internet again. It was out for about 48 hours. It’s amazing how much I use it and boy, did I miss it.

    Just got power on in HOU about an hour ago. 33 hours, down to 9*, and got to 50* in the house. Not sure how long it’s going to last, as the state is doing some rolling black-outs with temps still well below normal. Last I heard about 12% of our power is supposed to be generated by those stupid giant bird-killing windmills, but guess what………..they froze up. Along with the windmills, we don’t have a fully built-out NG infrastructure either. Not sure which one of our R guv’s was responsible for that “oversight”, but it makes for a bit of an inconvenience when the electricity stops. We’re fortunate, believe it or not, because we have our own, self-contained electric grid where another state cannot “buy” our electricity, but hopefully the clowns in Austin right now (state legislature) are reminded that we aren’t quite where we need to be. Mrs. T still has no agua at el Gordito, but she did have power. She’s gonna have to go all Laura Ingalls and haul water from the creek soon. But we’re dry, warming up and have cerveza if needed. 😉

    It could be a tad uncomfortable for young Mr. Kinzinger at the family reunion this summer. Apparently some of his own family are none too proud of him. As they point out in a letter, that somehow got into the hands of the “Fishwrapper of Record”.

    And here’s another WHOOPEE!!! A day or so ago I posted that I’d written to this gal as she was my former House Rep and I was still on her email list. The note I sent her indicated how pleased I’d be if she were primaried. NOW, if the report is correct, she will be. OH, GLORY BE!
