Our loyal readers in Alabama, Florida Panhandle, and Georgia should check their local weather.


The Editor:  What is going on with America, LL ?

Small Cat:  For our readers who believe in evolution, we are going backwards.  Here is a link to how those readers have advanced.  One other thing, this is where the smart cats decided to stay small.  We wouldn’t be a threat to humans.  We also knew that a species that would kill its own kind over a drink of water from a mud puddle was a species to be reckoned with.  This looks strangely like America.  May the best ape win.

I think the cities will get more violent.

Maybe Trump can appoint enough judges that follow the Constitution to make a difference.

As this author says,  ” what’s  left “.  I hope RBG retires while Trump is President.  What fireworks.

It might be the-end.

Sun Dance

Explanation: Sometimes, the surface of our Sun seems to dance. In the middle of 2012, for example, NASA’s Sun-orbiting Solar Dynamic Observatory spacecraft imaged an impressive prominence that seemed to perform a running dive roll like an acrobatic dancer. The dramatic explosion was captured in ultraviolet light in the featured time-lapse video covering about three hours. A looping magnetic field directed the flow of hot plasma on the Sun. The scale of the dancing prominence is huge — the entire Earth would easily fit under the flowing arch of hot gas. A quiescent prominence typically lasts about a month, and may erupt in a Coronal Mass Ejection (CME) expelling hot gas into the Solar System. The energy mechanism that creates a solar prominence is still a topic of research. Unlike 2012, this year the Sun’s surface is significantly more serene, featuring fewer spinning prominences, as it is near the minimum in its 11-year magnetic cycle.
