    Mornin’ All. It was pretty cool out and it is overcast right now, but burning off. Loki has had her walk and her breakfast and is taking her morning nap. My DIL has already found 3 potential washer/dryer sets for under $200. I will have to call and check on them today. My son is going bear hunting this weekend so he can’t pick them up until next week. But, I am exited because I really hate going to the laundromat.

    Pray for peace and for our country to be restored.

    So, new dog, Hannah has discovered the lake is a joyous place to visit. Two days ago she came home covered in mud, happy as a clam!!! (Less so during the required bath.) Today, she came home just wet, so I dried her off, and she ran for the door the next time it was opened, and back to the lake!

    Shortly thereafter, my brother called out he could seen the alligator swimming across the lake, away from the area where Hannah had been playing. Our guess is it is about 5’ long (they grow about a foot a year). I will process the pictures and post in a bit.

    I have no way to keep Hannah away from the lake other than keep her on a leash, which she hates. And she is a herding dog so she is very active and needs to run. I will get her obedience training, but don’t know if that will be totally effective.

    Saddens, but doesn’t surprise me.

    Less than half of Americans can name the three branches of the federal government — executive, legislative and judicial — according to an annual survey of civics knowledge conducted for the Constitution Day holiday on Saturday.

    Respondents to the Annenberg Public Policy Center’s survey also had little understanding of the impact of a Supreme Court ruling, and few could enumerate the freedoms guaranteed by the First Amendment.

    “My impression is that even in prestigious universities, maybe 30% of all students could pass the civics test required of incoming immigrants,” said Joseph Ellis, a Pulitzer Prize-winning constitutional historian.

    Highlights

    Less than half of U.S. adults (47%) could name all three branches of government, down from 56% in 2021 and the first decline on this question since 2016.
    The number of respondents who could, unprompted, name each of the five freedoms guaranteed by the First Amendment also declined, sharply in some cases. For example, less than 1 in 4 people (24%) could name freedom of religion, down from 56% in 2021.
