Re: Fogbow Arts and Crafts Club

Got a call yesterday morning from a local number, but I didn't answer it because who calls on July 4th from a number I don't recognize? She left a message though, and I've been named "outstanding MS quilter" by the state quilting organization. I have to go to Corinth in Oct for some sort of ceremon...

Re: Earthquake! (or maybe Volcano!)

I'm happy that there is a mandatory evacuation. The people staying were putting rescue crews in danger. I read the story of the man who was guided out by a drone. He waited until lava reached his driveway to evacuate, but, of course, it was too late. He called for a helicopter to pick him up, but f...

The other painful discussion that we must have is about physician assisted suicide.
Colorado now has some provisions for physician assisted suicide, though it is so hedged about that I am unlikely to ever be able to make use of it. However, I voted for it anyway since it's a start.

Breaking News - lava crosses Pohoiki Road, cutting off access to about 40 homes. Number of people trapped not known. Remember those helicopters I mentioned? They are in the area now, may be evacuating people this evening.

Watching on tv, link when I can find one.
I hope they get everyone out.

Re: My own little corner.

My husband has hemochromatosis. In theory, it was caught early before it did much damage. He does the regular phlebotomies: about once every two months. From what I remember of the research that I did when he was first diagnosed, joint pains can be one symptom of iron overload. Much sympathy. It suc...

Re: Arrest of CO Pretend Judge Bruce Doucette + Pretend Grand Jury LARPers Stephen Nalty, Steven Byfield, et al.

I wondered what happened with the "sympathetic" alt juror who switched at the last minute. If female, perhaps she is one of those excessively socialized women who automatically smile anyone who makes eye contact and hence they thought she was sympathetic. (I also tend to smile automatically.)

Just out of curiosity, if Trump were to physically assault her, how would the Secret Service respond?
I imagine they would do what I do when our Miniature Schnauzer and Boston Terrier try to start something: I get between them and give the instigator a dirty look.
