Smarter About Space

This guy always has an intelligent and interesting take on everything.  Worth the watch, especially if you're into manned space flight.

A small herd of deer has been hanging around the house for the last few months...

More Than Just a Turkey

Tomorrow, much food will be consumed.  Bordering on gluttony, even.  I've crossed that border many, many times, and had the swollen gut and indigestion to prove it.

Thanksgiving reminds us of the foods that saved our forebears.  The indigenous peoples already on the continent were generous enough to provide sustenance.  We remember the turkey, corn, squash and pumpkin in our cornucopias every year.

What we don't often remember is that it wasn't just those few things.  The natives also provided Europeans with tomatoes, potatoes, chocolate, vanilla, chili peppers and many other items.  Prior to American contact, Europe had never seen these.

So, at lunch tomorrow, when you eat something a little less traditional, like maybe french fries, something chocolatey, or spicy peppers... or even if it's just something vanilla flavored, remember to be thankful for those as well.  If it hadn't been for the natives of the Americas, they wouldn't exist!

Neo-fascist UK Government Executes Another Infant

Another child has become the victim of the eugenicist UK government.  After being sentenced to death by being deemed unworthy of further government expense, the baby was granted citizenship by another country where doctors, who believed the arrogant state doctors of the UK had misdiagnosed the child with a terminal illness.  However, not to be exposed as the horrifically inept medical 'professionals' they are, the UK ordered the baby held in custody by police until it died.

This is apparently just the latest baby murder committed by the UK government.  Just today, another family finally got recognition from the the government that it allowed their newborn to die last year.  As distasteful as it might be, parallels to the eugenics policies of WWII Germany come to mind.  

The UK is falling apart.  This is just another symptom.  I know the USA has issues with a decline in civility, but at least we're not deeming little children unworthy of life, and FORCING THEM TO DIE, because the government says their monetary allowance for survival has run out.

Halloween Doorman

I got volunteer doorman for Samhain, this year.  I guess he's here to welcome the spirits on All Hallows Eve.  He's all set at the backdoor by the patio.

Fall, Leaves, Fall

I don't know what you've got going on, but whatever it is, it's not as important as how good the weather is this morning.  It's crisp, clear and cool.  Not too cold, just right.  

I love the fall.
