The Infrastructure Editor:  Did Jill have an infrastructure problem, LL ?

Chinese Concrete Cat:  She sure did, it looks like she got her 3 inch heels stuck in a crack in the concrete.  Luckily all Democrat caretakers of office holders are trained in problems with any shoe SNAFU.

The Democrat care givers even help old bodies return to the standing position.  Nancy couldn’t get up on her own, she had to be helped up.  Shoes, shoes, shoes, maybe Marc Rubio could give advice on their pumps.

Did you notice another politician who wears knee pads for emergency use ?

Here is Nancy in disguise at The Coachella music and arts festival in California.  

A read bump.  Those silly Chinese.

Swans can be territorial.  These are dems playing golf.

The Californication dems are a trip.

China is taking a little piece at the time.  First Tibet, then the man-made islands in the Pacific, and now part of Bhutan.

ASSEMBLY LINE MEDICAL CARE

Kevin had shingles.

Those of us who spend much time in a doctor’s office should appreciate this!
Doesn’t it seem more and more that physicians are running their practices like an assembly line. Here’s what happened to Kevin:

Kevin walked into a doctor’s office and the receptionist asked him what he had. Kevin said: ‘Shingles.’ So she wrote down his name, address, medical insurance number and told him to have a seat.

Fifteen minutes later a nurse’s aide came out and asked Kevin what he had…..Kevin said, ‘Shingles.’ So she wrote down his height, weight, a complete medical history and told Kevin to wait in the examining room.

A half an hour later a nurse came in and asked Kevin what he had. Kevin said, ‘Shingles..’So the nurse gave Kevin a blood test, a blood pressure test, an electrocardiogram, and told Kevin to take off all his clothes and wait for the doctor.

An hour later the doctor came in and found Kevin sitting patiently in the nude and asked Kevin what he had.

Kevin said, ‘Shingles.’

The doctor asked, ‘Where?’

Kevin said, ‘Outside on the truck. Where do you want me to unload them ?’

Astronomy Picture of the Day

Satellites over Orion
Image Credit: Amir H. Abolfath

Explanation: What are those streaks across Orion? They are reflections of sunlight from numerous Earth-orbiting satellites. Appearing by eye as a series of successive points floating across a twilight sky, the increasing number of communications satellites, including SpaceX Starlink satellites, are causing concern among many astronomers. On the positive side, Starlink and similar constellations make the post-sunset sky more dynamic, satellite-based global communications faster, and help provide digital services to currently underserved rural areas. On the negative side, though, these low Earth-orbit satellites make some deep astronomical imaging programs more difficult, in particular observing programs that need images taken just after sunset and just before dawn. Planned future satellite arrays that function in higher orbits may impact investigations of the deep universe planned for large ground-based telescopes at any time during the night. The streaks across Orion are not from Starlink but rather satellites in high geosynchronous orbit. The featured picture, taken in 2019 December, is a digital combination of over 65 3-minutes exposures, with some images taken to highlight the background Orion Nebula, while others to feature the passing satellites.
