Happy Caturday, GN!

Jerry --

Bummer about your hand; hope you heal quickly. (And I thought we were having a bad time of it getting our cars emissions-checked earlier this month.)

Mac --

Glad you and Elena are both making progress; hope the nearby medical folks are all good ones!

Sven --

I share Mac’s sentiments re those Senate candidates’ statements. Around here, we mostly tend to get scumbags who put their faith above fealty to the Constitution. (Fortunately, the last guy who did that got his ass soundly kicked in the primaries. David Perdue’s bad enough, thank you.)

Good morning, GN! Here’s another CA U.S. Senate candidate statement:

Herbert G. Peters | DEMOCRATIC

Andrew Jackson Democrat. Our first 70 years; our county grew and flourished. We had no income tax. Motto: Manifest Destiny. Democrat Presidents; were most wise: Andrew Jackson balanced budget seven of eight years. Franklin Pierce vetoed a federal welfare bill. To reverse downward spiral of last II8 years: balance our budget, resist war, reduce costs, reduce taxes, repeal welfare and minimum wage so all can find jobs. Churches and Charities help needful. Reduce oppression: replace income tax with sales tax. Goal: Better life for all.

The Claire Wolfe perspective:

“But also because, horrible as the prospect of either President Trump or President Clinton the Second is, it’s a relief not to feel hope.”

Happy Caturday, Gerbil Nation!
Good morning, Fatwa and Sven!

Here’s where Mrs. Paddy and I were, last night:

You can see the pipe organ in back.

We went to hear Midori play Korngold’s Violin Concerto and Holst’s The Planets. The concert began with the Stokowsky arrangement of Debussy’s Clair de Lune. Midori’s instrument had the sweetest sound I’ve ever heard from a violin and the guest conductor, Bramwell Tovey, gave the most evocative and sensitive performance of The Planets that I can remember. It was a wonderful evening.

Hai, Sven, Paddy and Mac!

I really need to read Claire Wolfe’s site regularly.

Paddy --

Never been to that concert hall in Costa Mesa; sounds like a wonderful concert.

As of today, we’re taking care of our grand-dogs while the kids are out of town for three months (FTR will be working at the local office there).

They’re well-behaved, sweet puppies…at least for the past two hours. 😉
