Congratulations to the winning team :flag: :happyfamily: :bunny: :cheer1: :cheer:

Had to share, I had Fox News on (don't ask me why), and they had a reporter stationed at a local pub with the happy fans. Usual stuff until right behind him came talk of vote 2020 and democrats and let's get that racist out of office. I hope that clip goes viral.

Sports bar patrons ruin Fox News segment by loudly chanting ‘F*ck Trump’ after US wins World Cup

https://www.rawstory.com/2019/07/sports ... world-cup/
As correspondent Greg Palkot began his report, the establishment’s bartender prompted a chorus of chants.

“Fuck Trump!” the bartender shouted.

“Fuck Trump!” the bar began to yell in unison.

Bike crash kills South African man set to be first 'Afronaut'
Mandla Maseko, a DJ who won the chance to be the first black African in space, has died in a motorbike accident

Mon 8 Jul 2019 07.05 BST First published on Mon 8 Jul 2019 04.39 BST

A South African man who won the chance to be the first black African in space has died in a motorbike crash before turning his dream into reality.

Mandla Maseko, a part-time DJ and candidate officer with the South African air force, was nicknamed “Afronaut” after landing a coveted seat to fly 103km (64 miles) into space in 2013 in a competition organised by a US-based space academy.

He died in a motorcycle accident on Saturday, according to a family statement cited by local media on Sunday.

The 30-year-old had beaten a million other entrants from 75 countries to be selected as one of 23 people who would travel on an hour-long sub-orbital trip on the Lynx Mark II spaceship.

But:
Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia wrote:XCOR Lynx

The XCOR Lynx was a proposed suborbital horizontal-takeoff, horizontal-landing (HTHL), rocket-powered spaceplane that was under development by the California-based company XCOR Aerospace to compete in the emerging suborbital spaceflight market. The Lynx was intended to carry one pilot, a ticketed passenger, and/or a payload above 100 km altitude. The concept was under development since 2003, when a two-person suborbital spaceplane was announced under the name Xerus.

In January 2016, XCOR changed plans for the first flight of the Lynx spaceplane. It was initially planned for the second quarter of 2016 from the Midland spaceport in Texas,[1] but in early 2016 it was pushed to an "undisclosed and tentative" date at the Mojave spaceport.[2]

In May 2016,[3] XCOR announced development of the Lynx had been halted with layoffs of approximately one-third of the staff; the company intends to concentrate on development of their liquid hydrogen rocket under contract with United Launch Alliance, instead.[4]

Following the bankruptcy of XCOR Aerospace in 2017, the assets of the company were sold to the nonprofit organization Build A Plane, which will focus on education rather than suborbital flight.[5]

I am having the entirety of my small acreage re-fenced. Yesterday commenced the tear down of the old fencing, and it continued today. It's not very comforting knowing that the only thing keeping my seven horses from heading down the road is their belief that my hot wire fencing is the same as solid wood board fencing.

Hahaha, there's nothing quite like looking out the window and thinking 'Nice to see Fajr grazing out there even in the rain', doing a double take and having to sprint outside in the pouring rain to put said horse back in the paddock after realizing that I forgot to put back up the gate wires after moving everyone around. Sigh...horses are a bit easier than dogs, though, since one horse will usually not desert his buddies if he gets loose.

Dogs, on the other hand, just run and run and run and run.

In our old neighborhood, one never became too exasperated at seeing other people's horses straying since someday it might be one's own horses that slipped through an insecurely fastened gate. There were several times I lured strange horses into my unused pasture, and then went into the house and start calling to see who they belonged to. Paint's, grays, and appys are pretty easy to identify, but bays and sorrels not so much.

Nothing is as delightful as having a cat tromping around on your dining table or kitchen counters after it buries its mess in the litter with its paws. I don't care how "absorbent" the litter is, you can tell when there's a cat in the house the moment you walk into the house.

If you and others recall, I lean more as a cat person (because they don't require as much maintenance as dogs). Back 8-9 years ago, we had a major issue with feral cats in one of our communities. Most people didn't complain and many, in fact, would keep bowls of food and fresh water outside their homes. Cats are kind of perfect to have around on patrol because you're not going to have a problem with other critters. (rodents, snakes, etc)

But, while I advocated trap, immunize, neuter or spay, and release back, a vocal minority wanted them gone. We paid a trapper to remove them (they got 35!). I was told they were relocated and released into a 'feral community' elsewhere in the state. I'm not sure I believe that.

The previous owner of the property next door had huskies. She was very, very careful with them. She hadn't had a vacation in years because she didn't trust anyone to properly close the gates and doors. She was excited when I moved in because she knew I always made sure the gates and doors were latched and locked.

I'm not actually sure that I left the wire down yesterday. Because it's currently hot wire only, no permanent fencing, there's three wire for the gates. The lowest one was on the ground. It's entirely possible that Fajr just knocked it off and went underneath. The Arabians are smart little critters. They know that they can get under the fence if the lowest one isn't secure.

My front gate is usually open during the day for this very reason. Loose horses will turn themselves into the front pasture because they can see/smell my horses at the barn.

I have five grays and I am the only one who can identify them all out in the pasture!
