So… a widening war in the #MiddleEast as Iran retaliates for the Israeli attack on its consulate in Syria that killed sr. generals. From Iran’s POV, there was no choice. The attack on its diplomatic mission was/is considered an attack on its sovereign territory, a red line for any country. It had to respond. But the response, so far, has been measured & interesting. So far. #Iran launched drones, which were immediately detected giving Israel a few hours to prepare and activate their considerable air defenses. Iran claimed publicly that they also launched ballistic missiles, but Israel has denied that an there is no evidence yet that missiles are involved. A couple of possibilities come to mind. One, fearing a direct war with nuclear armed #Israel, Iran has purposely muted its response guaranteeing little or no Israeli damage but giving the Mullahs chance to claim revenge; and two, this response is a feint and we’ll see some unexpected asymmetric response at some undetermined point. I hope it is the former.

YSK: it’s okay to not be like by everyone we encounter…”When we act in such a way that eliminates negative criticism, we also eliminate many, many possible lifestyles, actions, and directions from our realm of possibility. We become slaves to that which we believe others will approve.”

In a blatant breach of the separation of church and state, “A Wisconsin public school board listed 'Christian values' among desires for next superintendent” - why is it so hard for christians to understand that we protect religious freedom, a foundation of our constitution, through preventing any ONE religion from dominating public life and institutions? https://www.wpr.org/news/a-wisconsin-public-school-board-lists-christian-as-requirement-for-superintendent

Had a small gathering of local deer on our pasture yesterday. We keep our wildlife corridors open in the face of increased urbanization on our hillside.

Personally, I’m never ever buying another #HP product. The company seeks to control its customers, including printer and PC buyers, in unacceptable ways imo. Any tech company that can remotely brick its products is not trustworthy by any measure. https://www.theregister.com/2024/04/11/hp_inc_ink_filing/

Canada on alert for Summer wildfires: "The temperature trends are very concerning.
