We just commemorated the 80th Anniversary of D-Day, when the world was in the thick of WWII & Americans were UNITED in the war effort. That unity helped defeat fascism in 1945.

We’re now living with the PROMISE of an era of real fascism if Convicted Felon Donald Trump & his thugs prevail in 2024.

That nightmare can become our reality if we don’t spread the TRUTH & GET OUT THE VOTE.

This time around, it’s up to YOU, ME, ALL OF US.
We have to become another “Greatest Generation.”

  1. Rearranged my bonsai forest for sun protection without falling on my face. Pomegranate tree seems to be surviving after criminal over-watering. 😖
  2. I have nothing to do today except what I want to do.
  3. Halibut & yams for dinner tonight.
  4. Bonus: Digital (not AI) watercolor rendition of an African lion pic taken by vagabond son 11/2023.

About time! But would SCOTUS ban this one too? Or is that just for women… [Folks, that was rhetorical. We know the answer]

“A male birth control gel is one step closer to reality

Researchers at Endocrine Society’s conference in Boston presented encouraging earlystage clinical trial results of a male birth control method that takes the form of a hormonal gel.”

  1. Easy day, housecleaning angel here, high temp only 93°.
  2. Popcorn & ice cream for dinner while watching my youngest granddaughter graduate high school in NC. They even pronounced her multi-syllabic Italian surname correctly.
  3. Vagabond son & DIL drove up to the summit of Pike’s Peak yesterday & sent the photo below. (The view from the summit inspired the ode that became the anthem, “America The Beautiful.”)

In that grief, Hunter & Hallie self-medicated w/a highly addictive drug. Hunter already had a predisposition to , & he did what people addicted to drugs & alcohol do — made terrible decisions.
He admitted it & admitted to committing crimes during his addiction.

I don’t know whether anyone else does this, but with so much I read about what is happening right now, like this on and heatstroke measures, I can’t help imagining it both as a document read by later historians (“how it all unfolded”) and as a report from the future - ie, this is what I thought would start happening in the future, if we don’t do anything to prevent it.

It is a lot to process that this really is our reality, right now 1/2

I find (unfortunately) that those who CAN put things together, who aren’t afraid to use intuition, experience, common sense, are few & far between. Futurists, synthesists, deep thinkers, witches, I don’t know. Somehow the label “doomer” pops up, but too often predictions become fact when it’s too damn late.

I think it’s too damn late for every living thing on this despoiled planet.

In the field of Process Theology (Teilhard de Chardin, Alfred North Whitehead, et al), these philosophers/theologians posit that “the end” won’t occur until all evil in the world is overcome by love. Gauging by the authoritarian/fascist direction we seem to be headed in too many governments, I think we have a few more years to experience evil.

It may sound completely inhumane (especially considering I’m a grandmother), but I feel worse for the non-human life & processes we are destroying. All they need to survive are small bits of natural environment, food, scant resources, yet our greed & “progress” have already led to the current mass extinction event.

Plenty of real evil to go around.

Perry sought a pardon for his key role in trying to overturn the 2020 election. People who try to overthrow the U.S gov't don't belong in the House, let alone on the Intel Committee.

I can’t speak for you, but the past few days are scaring me shitless. The Republican party has stopped any pretense of respecting a constitutional democracy. Most of them don’t even know what that is. And none of them care. It’s time for Europe to step-up and say something. Anything.

It just clicked in my brain. What I haven't been able to articulate about why I'm so anxious about Recall. I'm sure others have already gotten to where I am.

It's worse than "a system that tracks everything you do" and stores that info in a basic database that could be easily compromised.
It's worse than a nanny surveillance tool for companies to spy on their employees.

It's inescapable.

It doesn't matter if I make a dozen "how to disable recall" tutorials. The second YOUR data shows up on someone ELSE'S screen, it's in THEIR recall database.

It won't matter if you're a master expert specialist. You can't account for EVERY other computer you've ever interacted with. If a family member looks up an old email with your personal data in it, your data is now at risk.

If THEIR system is compromised YOUR data is at risk.

I just went from "vague feeling of unease" to "actively writing templates to canvas elected officials, regulators, and attorneys general."

As far as I’m concerned (and as an IT veteran since 1975), Microsoft has NEVER HAD ONE PRODUCT that came close to competitors’ offerings, no matter the niche or specialty. All it’s ever had is marketing expertise. If it were an auto manufacturer, it would be an Edsel or Nash bit with a pricy hood ornament & good sales teams.
