Ole Joe will get a lot more than Netflix, like the Obama group.  The American taxpayer will pay billions to produce the vaccines and Joe gives the patent to the Communist who created the virus.  Vote Democrat.  China will under-cut our prices.


DeSantis will make a good leader.

Why aren’t these perjury/trial framing criminals in jail ?


Citizens should do this all over America.  Republican states should prohibit the 1619 feces, and critical-race crap from being taught in any school/college that receives public money.  Do it now.


Trump speaks–almost.


The First Five Days Editor:  Is this about the one thing Science and Religion agree on, LL ?  Animals were here first.

That’s True Cat:  They sure were.  Here is some bird news.  I wish the birds had attacked Congress and DC.

These are real bird stories.

Cows are doing their share.  All animals should be raised free-range, no feeding pens.

Crocs reach a temporary high.

You never know.  In bear country you shouldn’t walk your dogs at night, unless you can outrun them, and you should carry at least a 45 handgun.

Who caused the chicken shortage ?

No one can list all the things dogs have done to help humans.  Here are some recent media stars.

I might go back to Holland, the Dutch aren’t psychotic like these paranoid Democrats.  You can’t emotionally rescue fools.

Stayton Jordan Covered Bridge

WGN – 37-24-02 Stayton Jordan Covered Bridge – Built in 1937 in Marion County Curt Ward & Volunteers spanning Salem Power Canal in Pionerr Park, single span, 90 feet long, Howe trusses

Prior to 1986, the Jordan Bridge spanned Thomas Creek in neighboring Linn County several miles east of Scio. The original bridge location had once been the site for a dam, a cheese factory, two mills and a general store. When Linn County announced the aging Jordan Bridge was to be replaced in 1986, Stayton residents asked if they could take title to the structure. A covered bridge preservation company was formed and the bridge was rebuilt over the Salem Power Canal to serve as a foot bridge connecting two parks. The new bridge was dedicated in June 1988. The bridge caught fire December 20, 1994 at 2 a.m. when Christmas lights ignited the roof. The city decided to demolish the trusses and burn what remained of the bridge. The new bridge incorporates glue laminated timbers for added strength and was dedicated in September 1998.


Astronomy Picture of the Day

Deepscape at Yacoraite

Explanation: In this evocative night scene a dusty central Milky Way rises over the ancient Andean archaeological site of Yacoraite in northwestern Argentina. The denizens of planet Earth reaching skyward are the large Argentine saguaro cactus currently native to the arid region. The unusual yellow-hued reflection nebula above is created by dust scattering starlight around red giant star Antares. Alpha star of the constellation Scorpius, Antares is over 500 light-years distant. Next to it bright blue Rho Ophiuchi is embedded in more typical dusty bluish reflection nebulae though. The deep night skyscape was created from a series of background exposures of the rising stars made while tracking the sky, and a foreground exposure of the landscape made with the camera and lens fixed on the tripod. In combination they produce the single stunning image and reveal a range of brightness and color that your eye can’t quite perceive on its own.
