Painted Bunting

A recent visitor to our bird feeders at Rancho Roly Poly. I was stunned when I saw it in my binoculars and didn’t have time to grab a camera. This will do.

Yom HaShoah…

…began yesterday evening, and continues today until sundown. But any day is a good day to remember the murdered six million.

A remembrance that began in Israel in 1951 to memorialize the 1943 armed uprising of the Warsaw Ghetto, established by the Nazis—proof that not all were “led like sheep to slaughter”—but eventually came to commemorate all.

The Puckerbrush Irregular

“At 4:14am this morning, the driveway alarm jangled me out of a deep sleep.  Vela Von and I snapped to and peeped out the window ’cause you just don’t rush out the door helter skelter at that hour if you are smart.”

In which AndyJ of MyOldRV surprises an intruder up to no good.

Outrage of the day

The left is all hot and bothered over Atty Gen. Sessions whining about some judge on an island in the Pacific.

While the right is exercised over some twit art professor painting Trump’s severed head.

Of the two, I’d think the head would get the most ink/air, if not a Secret Service investigation. It it was Barry’s or the Hildafelon’s head we’d all know about it and never hear the end of it. But that’s not the way it works with the Mediacrats.

No, no. The little island in the Pacific takes the palm.

Reprising The Expanse

Been rehashing the episodes of The Expanse, since I own them now. Taking them in sequence from the first to the most recent, the 12th 13th of Season 2. Liking the characters more and wondering how far the SyFy channel will take the show.

Like as far as the the sixth novel, Babylon’s Ashes, which I just finished? It’s about the Belters war against Earth and Mars. Pretty good. No spoilers here. Wondering what’s next in the novel series, more on the colonized solar systems, I presume.

An Instapundit truth

JOURNALISM IS ABOUT KEEPING DEMOCRATIC CONSTITUENCIES RILED UP, AND REPUBLICAN CONSTITUENCIES DEPRESSED

Couldn’t have said it better myself.
