    Stellars….

    The photographer, Ben Gunsberger, is from Sydney, Australia…so perhaps that’s the location, also…

    “The English name, dandelion, is a corruption of the French “dent de lion” meaning “lion’s tooth”, referring to the coarsely toothed leaves”…as you probably know, they are edible and good for human health…

    What a darling lighthouse…Walton Lighthouse in Walton, Nova Scotia, Canada…

    Newport Harbor breakwater from the Corona del Mar section of Newport Beach, CA…

    Have a perfectly lovely day!

    Tribal People Try Krispy Kreme Donuts for the First Time

    These Pakistani men are such wonderful characters. I haven’t run across any bios of them tp discover which province they live in. Unlike American “reality” shows, this series apparently is unrehearsed and the men give their honest opinions of various foods and products they haven’t seen or tried before.

      Mornin’ Lucille. I noticed several men thought that if it came from America it would be good. That tells you something about how the world feels toward America.

    Mornin’ All. It rained again last night. We only got less than a 1/2 inch after it rained (sprinkled) off and on all day. But, at least it was something.

      Good morning, aus! We’re supposed to hit 80 degrees today. We’ve got a bit of a breeze going and so 80 will be very doable. Wish I had some personal transpo. I’d love to go out to one of the lakes and grab a bench for a couple of hours, maybe take a lunch along.

    Opened the propane tank to check the levels, due to the impending tropical storm, and a bird flew out. Seems she made her nest insIde the cover! Her babies are newly hatched, wide open mouths, ready for more breakfast!

      Aww, thanks for the picture of the sweeties. We have a wreath on the wall beside the front door and birds built a nest in it this year, but they soon abandoned, I guess not liking the amount of people coming and going. For some reason they did not build in my birdhouse like they did last year.

    Good morning to all! Beautiful June weather here. We had a couple of sunny days in the 70’s this week, but it will be warmer today, with rain tonight and tomorrow.

    Some of the things that appeal to me on YouTube are strange. Yesterday I found a Polish-based company that cleans dirty rugs on camera. Oddly soothing.

    I am sitting here watching some yt videos. The TV is on, and muted, but I looked up and Biden is signing a bill making Juneteenth a Federal Holiday. Why? I might understand if the slaves had not found out in many, or all states until then, but this is ridiculous. It was in “one” state, if I have it correct. Or if it was a holiday in Texas it might make sense. Alveda King just said this will unite ALL Americans. Stupid woman. I am already against it. Have always been. I usually respect her, but there are some things she says that seem racist to me.

      Ted Cruz said on Twitter that Juneteenth has been a holiday in Texas for 41 years. I didn’t know that either. If they want to have a holiday, so be it, but why not on the actual date (like July 4) rather than using it for an excuse to have a day off for Federal employees (and other union employees), because that’s what it is, imo.

        I agree with you about that. Are we supposed to go back and choose another date for the end of WWII because there were pockets of soldiers who didn’t get the word until later?

        “If you didn’t support Hillary in 2016, you ain’t woman. If you don’t vote for Joe Biden in 2020, you ain’t black. If you can’t see that the Democrats are exactly what they accuse everyone else of being, you ain’t smart.” – Candace Owens

    Missed this earlier in the day…if states don’t have “standing”, who does?

    BREAKING: Supreme Court Upholds Obamacare by a 7-2 Vote
    By Cristina Laila – Published June 17, 2021 at 10:54am

    The Supreme Court on Thursday upheld Obamacare in the latest GOP challenge arguing a recent change to the individual mandate made it unconstitutional. The highest court of the land in a 7-2 vote ruled the GOP challengers, 18 red states led by Texas, did not have legal standing.
