I can count on one hand the number of times I’ve urged others to spread the word by forwarding an email.

This speech, given by Marco Rubio on the floor of the Senate, is one of them. It’s not political but it is powerful. And timely.

It deserves to be heard by as many people as possible. I trust you will agree and hope you will forward it.




Fauci’s NIAID funded $3.7 million dollars to the Wuhan, China laboratory.


The Editor:  Is this about Humpty Dumpty, LL ?

Fake  Cat:  The truth will never be known about the Wuhan Virus.  Anyone who dies with other health complications is listed as a Wuhan death.  Anyone who dies at home is listed as a Wuhan death.  Here are some interesting articles.  Without a positive test it is as make believe as Humpty Dumpty.

TE:  Did you hear about Land O’ Lakes changing their Princess logo, FC ?

Native American Cat:  I sure did.  They changed the pretty Princess a while back to look like Hillary wearing a head band that she stole from Elizabeth Warren.  Now they are ditching Hill-princess for some cows-which is an improvement.

Here is another classic, the college photo of the great American Governor of Virginia.  He is dressed in blackface and wearing a Kappa-Kappa-Kappa hat and sheet.  Vote Democratic

It’s time to start America up.  It will take a lot of energy.

Colfax Covered Bridge

47-38-01 – Colfax or Road boxed truss bridge – Washington- Built in 1922 Spanning Palouse R. on a private road in Whitman Co. 163 ft. long Howe Trusses

Private. No roof. It was built according to a general plan (Great Northern Railway Plan No. 115-1562). The Great Northern built the bridge in order to upgrade the interurban electric line to steam use and this required a heavy-timbered structure. The railroad abandoned the bridge in 1967. The HAER data sheet says the bridge was constructed by the S&IE RR in 1918, but the 1922 date might have been the upgrade date.



Astronomy Picture of the Day

Just Another Day on Aerosol Earth

Explanation: It was just another day on aerosol Earth. For August 23, 2018, the identification and distribution of aerosols in the Earth’s atmosphere is shown in this dramatic, planet-wide digital visualization. Produced in real time, the Goddard Earth Observing System Forward Processing (GEOS FP) model relies on a combination of Earth-observing satellite and ground-based data to calculate the presence of types of aerosols, tiny solid particles and liquid droplets, as they circulate above the entire planet. This August 23rd model shows black carbon particles in red from combustion processes, like smoke from the fires in the United States and Canada, spreading across large stretches of North America and Africa. Sea salt aerosols are in blue, swirling above threatening typhoons near South Korea and Japan, and the hurricane looming near Hawaii. Dust shown in purple hues is blowing over African and Asian deserts. The location of cities and towns can be found from the concentrations of lights based on satellite image data of the Earth at night.
