      Toured Europe on bicycles in 1972,,,never got to Greece. Always thought we’d return and visit there but never did! 😦
      Morning Lucille, and thanks for the getaway! Those waters must be really crowded when all those sailboats are out.

        Greece is one place I have always wanted to visit. Partly, I think, because Mary Stewart wrote so many novels about that part of the world. I loved her books, even though they would be considered passe today.

        Good morning, weather. It’s beautiful, that’s for sure. All those little nooks and crannies where a sailboat can anchor…plus the sun seems so much brighter there…perhaps because of the chalky color of the islands and water reflection.

        It certainly seems a tad different from other countries in the region…

    US commits $7,000,000,000 more to the Taliban despite severe human rights abuses
    August 25, 2022 12:00 PM By CHRISTINE DOUGLASS-WILLIAMS

    It isn’t enough that Joe Biden left behind $7 billion (at least) worth of sophisticated military equipment that the Taliban quickly seized. It wasn’t enough, either, that he left Americans to die violent deaths in Afghanistan. Now the Biden administration is discussing giving the Taliban $7 billion more. Biden claims that any money donated to Afghanistan for relief will be kept out of the Taliban’s hands or used by the Taliban in a humanitarian fashion.

    I think the dollar figure for “left behind” military equipment is $83 BILLION, not $7.

    Seen on locals.com. Really makes you want to own an electric car, doesn’t it?

    I have an idea…why not just put a wind turbine in place of the battery. The car would need just a small battery to emit the amount of “juice” needed to start the engine and drive away and then the wind turbine would take over. Of course, having a 200 foot turbine on your car might make it a bit unwieldy.

      That may be a fake invoice. I looked up the VIN number, and the vehicle is a 2012 model. Guys on Reddit say there is no way that the battery for that car would cost anywhere near that much.Funny anyway.

    Former President Donald Trump blasted the FBI’s raid on his South Florida estate and called the United States a “lawless country.”

    Trump wrote on his Truth Social platform: “The political Hacks and Thugs had no right under the Presidential Records Act to storm Mar-a-Lago and steal everything in sight, including Passports and privileged documents. They even broke into my safe with a safecracker – Can you believe? This Act was created for a very good reason, and it works. We are right now living in a Lawless Country, that just so happens to be, also, a Failing Nation!”

    Papa Pelosi tried to flash his Lifetime Member card for supporting the PoPo’s when he had his incident a couple months ago. The org pulled his man-card. I love it. It’s little things that start to add up. Don’t lose hope.
